I’m not saying he did, but maybe his “Inconvenient Truth” was more of a convenient exaggeration. There are folks out there making solid arguments that global warming is a myth.
In fact, there are 31,478 American scientists, including 9,029 with Ph.D.s, that have signed a petition saying, “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” You can see their argument at www.petitionproject.org.
Let’s suppose that Gore is wrong and global warming is a myth. Why was it created? Who stands to gain? I don’t think it is the American people or the HVACR contractors currently clamoring to jump on the green bandwagon. And is anyone monitoring the carbon cap-and-trade talks in Congress? This sounds like the wave of the future and the protection of the American people, but I am afraid the temporary jolt to the economy may just be bracing it for a sudden impact if the public hangs its hat on carbon credits and green propaganda.
Who is looking out for the public and the HVACR contractor as Congress legislates efficiency standards and carbon emissions? And who checked Gore’s facts? He may have “invented” the Internet, but his global warming theories just might leave us all out in the cold.
