Environmentalists’ selective hearing

Print Article

For some time now we have been told by Al Gore, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and 97 percent of scientists that man-caused increases in carbon dioxide are harmful and they will lead to our destruction. On the other hand there are a growing number of scientists who are telling us that this is not true. (More than 31,000 The Petition Project).

So, who are you going to believe? A little research may help expose the truth.

Al Gore had a net worth of about $1.7 million at the turn of the century and now his net worth is nearly $300 million. Much of that income was gotten through speaking and climate change work.

A little research will demonstrate that the 97 percent of scientists who believe man is the chief cause of global warming boils down to less than 1 percent.

The chief thing I have noted especially with local environmentalists is that they do not want to talk about the issue, or read anything with which they do not agree. They say they are just too busy saving the world.

People don’t get rich saving the world.
