There's Probably No Global Warming

No Global Warming Bump Stick by ~BlameThe1st on deviantART

Over 40 years ago, environmentalists were convinced that the world was heading towards a new ice age with “global cooling.” Now, 40 years later, they believe the exact opposite: that the world is going to shrivel up like a raisin with global warming. They were wrong the first time. Who’s to say they’re not wrong this time?

And don’t give me the whole “there’s a scientific consensus” shtick. That’s argumentum ad populum. Over 500 years again, there was a scientific consensus that the earth was the center of the universe. Does that mean Galileo was wrong because his theory didn’t match the “scientific consensus” of the day? Of course not! Because the surmounting evidence went against heliocentrism, just as the surmounting evidence goes against global warming.

I’d like to provide a plethora of peer-reviewed articles that debunk the global warming myth, but my good friend Kajm on DeviantART already did a magnificent job doing just that. Feel free to read his Climate Change Resource Page for well over 200 articles and resources.
