    Default AND NOW...for the news from 'downunder'.

    Get busy Henry V and you other Algore alarmists that are after every dime they can bilk from the USA taxpayers. I'm anxious to see the graphs disputing the carbon from volcano ash.

    UB

    Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

    Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better! If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.


    PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

    Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - itís that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

    I know....it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of Your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, Nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

    The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.

    I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

    Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it.

    Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which Keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

    And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

    Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.

    Hey, isnít it interesting how they donít mention 'Global Warming' anymore, just 'Climate Change' - do you know why?

    Itís because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

    And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

    It wonít stop any volcanoes from erupting, thatís for sure.

    But, hey, relax......give the world a hug and have a nice day!"

    Looks like the tree huggers can break out the popcorn. Thanks JD!

    Hey, I like trees. They provide shade in the heat of Summer and give me a place to hide when deer hunting!

    Just one small fact:

    The world, as a whole, is much better off dealing with the warming of our planet than a cooling planet. This winter is proof.

    Also, 2 years ago when there was a drought in the Midwest a number of farmers still had excellent crops if they hit the prime 2 week planting period in April. The ones which planted late didn't have a crop but made great money farming by mail. BTW it was corn with was the major crop impacted.

    Good to see nothing much has changed. UB copies and pastes stuff that is blatantly false. Someone call hims on it and.. well...listen to the crickets. How come no one called him a LIAR?

    The one difference now is that he has a cheering section and they were both so giddy before being exposed. Let the bromance continue.
