Talk about chilling.......consider the following statements. These alone ought to make you more than a little worried about the path down which we're being led by the global warming alarmists. Forget the cute polar bears, politics, Oscars, Big Al Gore the Prophet and his true believers. This is really serious folks.
The case for a "greenhouse problem" is made by environmentalists, news anchormen , and special interests who make inaccurate and misleading statements about global warming and climate change. Even though people may be skeptical of such rhetoric initially, after awhile people start believing it must be true because we hear it so often.

"Scientists who want to attract attention to themselves, who want to attract great funding to themselves, have to (find a) way to scare the public . . . and this you can achieve only by making things bigger and more dangerous than they really are."
