Battle of the Graphs

Battle of the Graphs
The top graph is the one the IPCC and Al Gore uses, the bottom contains the actual temperatures recorded from the past 1000 years

CO2 is not the enemy in North Carolina!

If we do not de-rail the man made global warming locomotive that North Carolina legislators have put into motion, $4 a gallon gasoline is only the tip of the iceburg! Join me and let's end this hoax in North Carolina.

I sent the following letter to my US and State congressional leaders requesting a NC Climate Change Summit

"My name is Neal Thomas and I reside in Shelby, North Carolina. I am sending this letter to all of my elected officials to strongly urge you all to unite together and confront the issue of “man-made” global warming for what it is; a hoax.

I am requesting that my North Carolina and U.S. Congressional leaders call for a Climate Change Summit. It would be composed strictly of scientific experts from both sides of the global warming debate, and would be designed to allow equal time for each panel of experts to publicly present and defend the scientific evidence for and against man-made global warming.
The assertion that there is 100% consensus within the scientific community that global warming is “man-made” is absolutely, positively, and categorically false. The Petition Project has grown considerably since Gore’s movie was released.
“More than 31,000 scientists across the U.S. – including more than 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties – have signed a petition rejecting "global warming," the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth's climate.” May 19, 2008, Bob Unruh, WorldNetDaily.
A movie soon to be released entitled Not Evil Just Wrong; The True Cost of Global Warming Hysteria, is designed as a rebuttal to Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”.
The original founder of The Weather Channel, John Coleman, asserts that Al Gore and all others selling carbon credits should be sued for fraud:

“Coleman also told the audience his strategy for exposing what he called “the fraud of global warming.” He advocated suing those who sell carbon credits, which would force global warming alarmists to give a more honest account of the policies they propose… That lawsuit would get so much publicity, so much media attention… as the experts went to the witness stand and testified, I feel like that could become the vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming.” Jeff Poor, Business & Media Institute, 3/5/2008.
Democrats in congress are working very hard to pass legislation that would as stated in their climate principles letter,

“Reduce emissions to avoid dangerous global warming…”

“Progressive Democrats of America has endorsed a science-based global warming bill now in the House of Representatives, The Safe Climate Act (H.R. 1590, Henry Waxman, D-CA-30). Now three House leaders, including Rep. Waxman, are circulating a climate principles letter among their colleagues which clearly defines the goals and elements a final law must contain to be successful. Speaker Pelosi supports the letter, and a large number of signatures from House members will help her to press for the best possible global warming bill.” Progressive Democrats of America, Action Alerts,
And Democrats in congress are not the only concern. Now it would seem the EPA will step in and mandate CO2 regulations single-handedly.
“The Wall Street Journal reports today that the Environmental Protection Agency will release a document later this week that could become “the legal roadmap for regulating greenhouse-gas emissions in the U.S.” Using the Clean Air Act, lawyers at the EPA claim they have the authority to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions. Such a decision would unleash a regulatory Pandora’s Box, vesting the EPA with vast control over the entire economy. Worse yet, when regulating pursuant to the Clean Air Act, the EPA is forbidden to take into account the economic costs of their regulations.” Heritage Foundation, Morning Bell, June 30th 2008.
Insurance companies are also beginning to cash in on the hysteria:
“Scientists say the jury is still out on whether rising sea temperatures will cause more hurricanes to hit U.S. coastlines. Yet some insurance companies are boosting premiums based on assumptions that they will. Helping to drive these developments is a little-known tool of the insurance world: Computerized catastrophe modeling. Crafted by several independent firms and used by most insurers, so-called cat models rely on complex data to estimate probable losses from hurricanes. But regulators and other critics contend that the latest cat models -- which include assumptions about various climate changes -- are triggering higher insurance rates.” July 1, 2008 HURRICANE WATCH Insurers Criticized For New Rate Models, M.P. MCQUEEN

I believe very strongly in being a good steward of our planet, but if man-made greenhouse gases are NOT causing global warming which many world renowned scientists believe, then it needs to be exposed for the hoax it is. I for one think a Climate Change Summit would be an acceptable expenditure of our tax dollars due to the huge amount of taxes we will face if the EPA is allowed to proceed unchecked. It is time to stand!"

All responses have been posted on the blog towards the bottom. I scanned them in so I apologize if they are a little difficult to read.
I am in the 10th US Congressional district so I sent this letter to Rep. Patrick McHenry. I was somewhat encouraged by Rep. McHenry's response. He in a round-about way admits that there is no "scientific consensus" that climate change is man-made. On the other hand, it is quite obvious to me that this is a form letter response because Rep. McHenry does not even mention or comment at all on my request for the Summit.

Being in NC I sent this letter to Senator's Elizabeth Dole and Richard Burr who sent almost identical responses which I will post below. Sen. Dole and Burr also sent form letters, and I wonder if Sen. Dole's letter is pre-2006? Based on the letter the Sen. sent in response to mine, it makes me wonder if she even read mine? How could she possibly believe there is a "scientific consensus" about man made climate change when there are 31,000 US scientists who have gone on the public record to say that it is not? The IPCC claims to have less than 3000 scientists backing up their data. I will admit that before Canadian scientists Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick dropped the equivalent of an atom bomb on Mann's "hockey-stick fraud", there may very well have been a scientific consensus. But there certainly is not a consensus now other than within the media, and the IPCC. I plan on engaging Sen. Dole and Burr in more conversation to clarify their opinion's about the 31,000 amoung other things.

I reside in Cleveland county NC so that places me in the 111th district for the House of Representatives, which is Rep. Tim Moore. Unfortunately I have misplaced his response. However his response about man made climate change left no doubt that he believes this issue needs much more debate, and so far he is the only elected official that penned a personal response to my letter. He is in favor of having the issue debated publically. Thank you Rep. Moore for taking the time to read and respond to my letter.

My state senate district is 46 so my state senator is Walter Dalton and he has NOT sent a response to my letter. I plan on sending my original letter to Rep. Debbie Clary and allowing her to comment. I am pretty sure she is running against Sen. Dalton for his seat in the NC Senate.
And lastly I sent this letter to the Governor of North Carolina, Michael Easley. His was by far the poorest of all. He did not comment on my request for a Summit, but from his coldish response I do believe he at least read my letter.
