Is The World Blowing Hot And Cold On Global Warming?

Did you know that during this winter in Afghanistan they have lost 300,000 cattle and the human death toll has risen above 1,500 as a result of the extreme cold? Or that in Tibet, six months of snow and record low temperatures have killed 500,000 animals and left three million people on the edge of starvation? No, I didn't either.

Read Christopher Booker's article in the Sunday Telegraph about the extremely cold conditions that have occured across the world in the last year.

If you have already accepted the arguments made by Al Gore and his demented "green" followers that global warming will dominate our world for centuries to come you might find this report gives you "food" for thought.

After three days of what the chairman of the Manhattan Group called "the kind of free-spirited debate that is virtually absent from the global warming alarmist camp", the 500 delegates issued the Manhattan Declaration, stating that attempts by governments to reduce CO2 emissions would "markedly diminish further prosperity" while having "no appreciable impact" on the Earth's warming.

So, when you drive up the motorway in a few years time with all those wind turbines planted in the central reservation to generate piffling amounts of electricity and you look at the fields of oil seed rape being grown for bio-fuel just think yourself very lucky you can afford to own a car, much less afford the cost of the fuel.
