There is more information and evidence coming out everyday that the global warming scenario painted by many scientists and public figures may not be true. The Al Fin web blog has many articles summarizing the recent disclosures. While doing some more research on my own I came across this graph which portrays the current temperatures as within normal fluctuation for the last 5000 years.
While I was convinced in the beginning by Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth movie that the earth was in the throes of a man-made global warming disaster, the skeptic in me is coming to the forefront. When I look at the graph above I see the earth's current temperature well within normal fluctuations of the last 4500 years and thus it is very doubtful that current temperatures or trends are any kind of issue.
With all the problems in the world, and, the small odds that there is even a global warming problem and even smaller odds that it is man-induced, I find it strange that this issue has been raised so high on the priority list of issues to attack by a world political coalition. Is global warming another artificial issue created to induce hysteria and laws/policies like carbon cap/trade that play into the hands of Goldman Sachs and others who will reap billions and trillions of dollars in profit at the middle-classes expense?
