Catching up with a fourth grader

by Robert Maynard

True North ran an article last month about the investigation of a fourth grader into the growing evidence that solar activity, cosmic rays and cloud formation are far more important factors driving climate change than CO2 concentration.  His investigation was centered around the findings of Henrik Svensmark, who is a physicist at the Danish National Space Center in Copenhagen.  A six part presentation of Dr. Svensmark’s findings can be found here.

In addition to scientific investigations calling into question what the man-made global warming theory claims is driving climate change, there is a growing awareness that the actual temperature data for the last 20 years does not conform to the model predicted by that theory.  This American Thinker article speculates on the political price that could be paid by the theory’s political supporters as public awareness of the fact that we are sacrificing our economy in the name of a false theory increases:

News is breaking out all over: global warming stopped 20 years ago.

A political earthquake has resulted from a feature story in the Economist magazine because the Economist used to be a consistent cheerleader for global warming activism. Doubts about global warming used to be censored by its London editors, one reporter confided to Stephen Hayward.

So what will voters do to Democrat candidates in 2014 and 2016 when the former realize that the Democratic Party was lying to them? Is it time to run away from the issue for Democrats, journalists, and Hollywood personalities?

While our economy is struggling and our nation in debt, Democrats squandered tens of billions on a climate change hoax. How many voters are unemployed due to climate change polices? Unnecessary regulations are strangling people’s jobs and their lives. And then one must wonder: what else were Democrats unbelievably wrong about?
