What You Ought To Know : Global Warming

This video is a simple, direct exposition of climate realism. I like it, as it talks to the target audience of the AGW zealots -- high school kids, in a media they understand: video.

For those who still insist its about the science, check
this update on how the measured heat content in the oceans bears no resemblance to the values included in all those wonderful climate models projecting future doom and gloom.

And for those interested in the economics argument,
here is a wonderful dismissal of the science fiction nature of economics embedded in the promotion of AGW.

Over at Climate Audit a lively debate erupted over the latest embarrassing actions of those whose careers are inextricably intertwined with promotion of AGW. Its a long series of posts but from it I gleaned this quote:
  • Men are apt to mistake the strength of their feeling for the strength of their argument. The heated mind resents the chill touch and relentless scrutiny of logic.
    William E. Gladstone
Took me right back to my own high school history classes with Mrs. Hughes and her lessons on Disraeli and Gladstone -- times when politicians were both statesmen and leaders, not marionettes spouting speechwriters drivel and platitudes.
