Most people have heard claims of man-made global warming being intentionally exaggerated by politicians, scientists, and the media, but how could this be true? Taking into consideration the amount of media coverage the issue has received, surely such a truth would have been established in the mainstream by now, or would it?

This multi-part summary article examines all aspects of the global warming debate, including scientific claims about the effects of the warming, potential causes of the warming, motives behind global warming legislation, and issues with the media and many establishment environmental groups.

This summary article is continually updated.

















Article Section— The Politics of Global Warming

Most people are glad to help make the world a healthier place. They like to know that their actions are improving the Earth and its living inhabitants rather than degrading it and are willing to make sacrifices in order to help this come about.

 United Nations Headquarters, New York.
The United Nations Building, New York.
Powerful political elite individuals understand people's desires for a healthy environment and try to further such desires in the populace, but unfortunately it is often due to ulterior motives rather than for actually fixing environmental problems.

This section directory contains articles examining treaties and legislation associated with climate change such as the Kyoto Protocol, ”Cap and Trade” legislation, and the 2009 ”Framework Convention on Climate Change.” It is shown that such treaties and legislation mostly serve to further long-range objectives of global elite individuals and organizations such as the United Nations, while actually having little to do with helping the environment.

The fact that global warming is potentially a ”global problem” is a key aspect making the issue appealing to be exploited by global political elites for furthering their objectives— such as incrementally dissolving the individual sovereignty of nations while creating a world system of private financial control which is in the hands of those few ruling elite. Much evidence shows globalist objectives of their eventually ruling and controlling the world's populace through a type of a totalitarian ”post-industrial feudal system.”

John Stossel Discusses Distortions in the Global Warming Debate
running time 8 minutes, 7 seconds
A video segment created by the journalist John Stossel for the ABC Television show ”20/20” examines issues concerning global warming, showing how issues are often extremely exaggerated by politicians and the media.




Alex Jones Discusses Issues with the Copenhagen Convention on Climate Change Treaty, December 8, 2009
recorded December 8, 2009, running time 17 minutes 30 seconds
Radio host Alex Jones speaks about issues with the 2009 Copenhagen Convention on Climate Change Treaty, explaining that the Treaty’s purpose is to deceptively empower an unelected global government which is controlled by private banks. It is explained that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank have been exploiting third world countries in the past and will continue their exploitation under the new treaties despite those countries being promised otherwise. Also discussed are common examples of propaganda which help to explain attitudes in the scientific community as well as how environmental issues are being used to forward ulterior motives.




Opening Ceremony Film from the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009
running time 4 minutes, 13 seconds
This new opening film for the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference is a common example of the mentality which is used to sell the idea of climate change being imminently catastrophic, despite proven facts showing the contrary.

Powerful and corrupt globalist organizations are growing increasingly desperate to quickly pass deceptive legislation which depends on support based on people’s perception of a world-wide threat, because the actual proven truths about global warming issues are quickly becoming more well-known.




Motives of the Globalist Establishment - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 26 minutes 48 seconds
This compilation of video clips from the documentary video "Global Warming or Global Governance?" discusses why many scientists, journalists, and politicians of the political establishment have an agenda of perpetuating the idea of current global warming being extreme and caused by man's activities, despite much surprising evidence to the contrary— largely due to common ulterior motives of offering solutions which actually impose deceptive and dangerous globalist agendas.

Global warming issues are being used by powerful political organizations to help form a centralized world government, through setting precedents for international controls and regulation which are shown to actually have little or nothing to do with global warming, such as the Kyoto Protocol. This video clip explains specifics of the true agendas of imposing global warming legislation.




Issues with Scientists, Politicians, and the Media
running time 28 minutes 33 seconds
This compilation of video clips from the film ”The Great Global Warming Swindle” discusses various reasons why many scientists, journalists, and political organizations such as the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC ) have a vested interest in distorting information related to global warming issues.

Many scientists depend on a perception of a danger from the effects of global warming in order to receive funding for their research, political organizations use it to push agendas which are often not even related to the environment, and media outlets often hype inaccurate scientific reports to appease powerful political elites who have an increasing control over corporate media.

Issues With the Kyoto Protocol (Book Excerpts)
updated November 18, 2009
These excerpts from the book ”Unstoppable Global Warming— Every 1,500 Years” explain specific aspects of the Kyoto Protocol, which is an international treaty intended to reduce the CO2 emissions of first world countries by the year 2012. If implemented, the treaty would at least double energy costs and more likely triple the costs through it being used as an excuse for placing an exorbitant tax on energy. It would create jobs, but only by replacing already existing technologies that are currently very adequate— similar to breaking windows in order to create the labor of replacing them. Also, even supporters of the treaty admit that it would most likely only reduce temperatures by relatively insignificant 0.05 degrees C by 2050.




A Summary of the Article ”Cap and Trade” Published in <i>The New American Magazine</i>
October 11, 2009
This article is a summary of points made in the article ”Cap and Trade”, by Ed Hiserodt for ”The New American Magazine,” September 17, 2009. The article discusses issues concerning the 1,400 page ”American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009” (Resolution 587) which was rushed through the US Congress on June 26, 2009 without adequate time for the bill to be read or for any meaningful debate. The act was passed by a vote of 219-212 and was essentially ignored by the media. The US Senate is now considering the bill.

It is explained how the legislation is meant to give government unprecedented power to control the allocation of energy resources through the use of taxable and tradable ”emission allowances” which are based on the amount of Carbon Dioxide that each business would be calculated to be putting into the atmosphere. The legislation would amount to being an extremely expensive energy tax that would be wastefully applied and having much potential for abuse by political elites.




A Summary and Criticism of the ”Framework Convention on Climate Change” Treaty
recorded November 2, 2009, running time 40 minutes 30 seconds
Hundreds of nations will be meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark during December to potentially ratify the "Framework Convention on Climate Change" Treaty which has been drafted by a Rockefeller Foundation funded body of the United Nations.

Radio host Alex Jones gives an overview of the treaty and reads through sections of the document mentioning aspects of concern during a November 2, 2009 broadcast, detailing issues about the treaty serving to greatly empower a world government which is run by non-elected private bankers. Also mentioned are issues concerning inaccurate propaganda put out by many media outlets concerning global warming, as well as agendas of extreme population reduction which are often associated with global warming legislation.




Alex Jones Speaks with Environmental Scientist Michael Coffman, October 2008
recorded October 20, 2008, running time 45 minutes 13 seconds
In this interview, environmental scientist and globalism expert Dr. Michael Coffman explains issues concerning the upcoming Barack Obama Administration, including long term agendas of globalist bankers being implemented through treaties which exploit the public’s concerns about such issues as the environment. This interview was recorded in October of 2008.












Article Section— An Examination of the Effects of a Warming Climate

Many people are under the impression that the effects of Carbon Dioxide being put into the atmosphere by man’s activities will cause catastrophic and irreversible environmental damage to planet Earth— a view that is reinforced by hundreds of millions of websites, many documentaries, rhetoric from politicians, environmental groups, organizations such as the United Nations, and news stories continually put out by many mainstream sources.

 An examination of the real effects of climate change show that claims of potential detrimental effects are often  extremely exaggerated or false.
An examination of the real effects of climate change show that claims of potential detrimental effects are often extremely exaggerated or false.
The amount of information claiming that global warming is an urgent man-made problem is so pervasive that most people don’t even bother to consider evidence to the contrary, as a common assumption is that corrupt energy companies and ”right wing” political groups are disseminating false information out of greed and malice.

This section directory contains articles that examine each of the major claims about potential detrimental effects related to global warming, including melting ice and sea level issues, storm intensity issues, potential of the spread of disease and human deaths, and plant and animal species extinction.

The findings may surprise you, as most commonly assumed effects of global warming are shown to often be extremely exaggerated and in many cases completely false.

Sea Level Issues Related to Global Warming

This section examines issues concerning potential sea level rise due to melting ice associated with the warming of the Earth’s climate. It shows how the issue of rising sea levels is extremely exaggerated by many media outlets as well as by organizations such as the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

It is shown that sea levels have not been rising much at all during the past century, and many experts think that sea levels will not rise by any significant amount over the next century, contrary to current IPCC estimates as well as Al Gore’s wildly exaggerated claim of a potential rise of 20 feet. It is shown that as climate temperatures warm, ice melting on the edges of large bodies of ice such as Greenland are replaced with extra ice accumulating on the interior of those bodies due to increased precipitation from freezing rain and snow.




Excerpts from an interview with sea-level expert Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner
updated November 18, 2009
This article is a summary and partial transcript of an interview with sea level expert Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner, from the Executive Intelligence Review, June 22, 2007. Mr. Mörner speaks about how sea levels have actually been relatively stable since the early part of the past century, and how the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been making use of inaccurate methods of sea level measurement, as well as not making use of actual sea level specialists as the authors for their reports. Also discussed is a well-known 50 year old tree in the Maldives that proves that the sea levels have not risen significantly during the life of the tree.


Sea Level Issues, from "Unstoppable Global Warming— Every 1500 Years"
updated November 29, 2009
These excerpts from the book ”Unstoppable Global Warming— Every 1,500 Years” explains the realities of sea level issues including why there is actually little danger of sea levels rising much during the next century, and why claims made in Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" predicting a potential sea level rise of 20 feet are wildly unrealistic.


”The Dutch Experience of Sea Level Rise”
February 13, 2005
This article is an excerpt from a posting on the website ClimateAudit.org which cites a Dutch study showing that sea levels in Holland have not recently been rising, as well as casting doubts no the validity of measurements by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).


Scientific Realities of the Greenland Ice Sheet
November 18, 2009
Two scientific papers published by the website "ScienceMag.org" explain how ice builds in the center of large bodies of ice such as Greenland as it melts around the edges, as well as showing that ice fluctuations have been relatively constant in Greenland over the past 17 years.


Issues with the Polar Ice Caps and Sea Level
running time 3 minutes 05 seconds
This video clip from the documentary ”The Great Global Warming Swindle” explains that current warming of the climate is historically a very common event, and that Arctic ice falling from the edge of glaciers is a natural occurrence which happens every Spring. It is also discussed why sea levels will not change by a large amount over the next century.


Sea Level Issues - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 4 minutes 3 seconds
This video clip from the documentary ”Global Warming or Global Governance” explains why the sea levels of the Earth will not rise by a significant amount over the next century, and debunks some of the exaggerated claims about the effects of recent climate warming such as the issue of declining polar bear populations.





Storm Intensity Related to Global Warming

Media outlets frequenly attribute news stories about extreme weather to being the effects of global warming. However, studies of hurricane and tornado frequency and intensity over the past century show that there are no increases that can be associated with global warming, and it is shown than an increasingly warmer climate actually serves to lessen the strength of hurricanes due to a combination of factors such as wind shear removing the top of the hurricanes.




”Counting Atlantic Tropical Cyclones Back to 1900”
November 18, 2009
This article contains excerpts from an article by Chris Landsea which was published in May of 2007, showing that the number of hurricanes occurring in recent decades is no higher than during the first half of the 20th century, contrary to previous reports which did not use accurate means of recording historical hurricane activity.


No Global Warming Link to Tornado Activity
November 18, 2009
This article contains excerpts from a NOAA study showing that the warming of the earth’s climate has not effected the strength or intensity of United States tornado activity during the past century. The study explains that while graphs often give an appearance of increased tornado activity, it is only due to improved levels of monitoring rather than an actual increase in tornadoes.


Normalized Hurricane Damage in the United States: 1925 - 1995
November 18, 2009
This article contains excerpts from a study by Roger Pielke and Christopher Landsea which ”normalizes” the trends of the costs of hurricane damage over the past century. The report shows that after corrections have been factored in there is no link between global warming and the amount of damage caused by storm intensity.


”Climate’s Remote Control on Hurricanes”
November 18, 2009
An article on the website Phyorg.com describes a recent scientific paper by Gabriel A. Vecchi that explains how normal climate variations have a larger effect on hurricane activity than the effects of global warming. Also a 2007 paper by Gabriel Vecchi shows that increased wind shear from warming sea temperatures makes it more difficult for hurricanes to form and grow.


Links of Global Warming to Extreme Weather - from ‘Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 3 minutes 47 seconds
This video clip shows proof that extreme weather activity such as tornadoes and hurricanes are not made stronger by the warming of the Earth’s climate, and in fact such storms are decreased in severity due to such warming.







Spread of Disease and Human Deaths Related to Global Warming

This section examines claims that the effects of a warming climate can have a detrimental effect on the health of people. Media outlets often make claims that such ailments as Asthma, death due to heat stroke and heart attacks, famine, and the spread of insect-borne diseases are on the rise due to global warming, but an investigation into each of those claims shows that they are almost always false or exaggerated.




Studies Show Asthma is not Caused by Global Warming
December 11, 2006
This article contains an example of a public service announcement which exploits fears of asthma being created by air pollution and global warming, and then it presents excerpts from a National Center for Policy Analysis document entitled Facts Not Fear on Air Pollution which explains realities of air pollution in the United States. The document also explains how air pollution issues are being distorted by politicians and media outlets for spreading fear of health risks for the purpose of political gain.


The Reality of Human Deaths Related to Global Warming
updated November 29, 2009
It is found that colder climate temperatures have a greater impact on human mortality than warmer temperatures, yet media reports often make exaggerated claims about the health dangers of a warmer climate due to global warming.

Deaths and illnesses do exist due to heat waves— including from heat stroke, heart attacks, and asthma attacks. But many health dangers are associated with cold weather as well, such as accidents due to slipping on ice, increased aliments such as cardio-vascular disease, stroke, and respiratory diseases such as colds, flu, and pneumonia.


Famine and Drought Associated with Global Warming
updated November 29, 2009
Historically, human food production has increased and flourished during periods of global warming, such as during the Medieval Warm Period between the years 800 and 1300 AD. However, studies show that a warming climate would bring an increased risk of drought in certain regions of the world including California, Mexico, and southern Africa, although the climate shifts would happen very gradually, giving time for populations to adapt with improved farming technology. Droughts are also shown in occur in periods of global cooling.


The Distortion of the Malaria Issue by the United Nations and Al Gore
running time 5 minutes 22 seconds
This video clip from the documentary video ”The Great Global Warming Swindle” explains that claims made by organizations such as the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC ) about the spread of insect-borne diseases such as Malaria due to the effects of global warming are false and have been fabricated for political purposes.







Species Extinction Due to Global Warming

An overwhelming amount of claims are made about extinctions and endangerment of plant and animal species resulting from the effects of global warming, however it is shown that such claims are nearly always not accurate, as all plant and animal species existing today have lived through hundreds of cycles of more extreme climate temperature variations in the past thousands of years.

Two species which are quite often falsely associated with being endangered due to the effects of global warming include coral reefs and polar bears— with over a million links listed on Google predominantly claiming extinction threats of corral reefs, and a tremendous amount existing for polar bears as well. However, it is proven quite conclusively that neither is realistically threatened by global warming, as ”bleaching” of coral reefs is shown to actually be a natural occurrence, and US Government reports claiming polar bears to be endangered have been shown to be highly unscientific in congressional hearings.

Genuine extinction threats to plant and animal species include hunting by humans, toxic pollution, land use by humans, introduction of alien species into foreign ecosystems, and natural disasters such as asteroids hitting the Earth.




Issues with Polar Bears and Global Warming
November 23, 2009
Government reports over recent years have been claiming imminent extinction threats of polar bears due to the effects of global warming, and in January of 2008 those reports had been discredited as being unscientific in congressional hearings. Nonetheless, in May of 2008 the polar bears had been listed as a threatened species due to pressure from media and lobbying groups— which set a new precedent representing the first linkage of species endangerment to the effects of global warming. Polar bear populations actually have been increasing in the Arctic due to hunting restrictions which have been imposed years ago.

This article contains a summary of issues concerning the effects of global warming on polar bear population sizes, and well as related political and media issues.


Coral Reefs are Not Endangered Due to Global Warming
updated April 14, 2010
When the 1998 El Niño raised the temperatures of the waters in the Pacific Ocean, it caused widespread ”bleaching” of coral reefs, which is shown to be a natural response to temperature changes of water in scientific studies. The resulting change in the appearance of corals around the world was enough for many to proclaim that the world’s corals were "dying off en mass" due to global warming, despite the fact that corals have lived through hundreds of relatively recent historical cycles of glacial periods interspersed with warm periods, as well as higher acid concentrations in the water and sea level rise of as much as 400 feet.












Article Section— Issues with the Science of Global Warming

Since the introduction of Michael Mann’s ”Hockey Stick Curve” in 1998 which inaccurately flattened previously recognized high and low temperature periods of the previous millennium, public fears of global warming have helped to spawn a tremendous scientific industry that has grown around the study of climatology, in particular related to aspects of the potential effects of increasing CO2 on the temperature of the climate.

Many questionable issues exist concerning the science of global warming.
Many questionable issues exist concerning the science of global warming.
Much of the sudden surge of global warming research money being poured into the scientific community is originating based on the efforts of powerful and seemingly legitimate political organizations which are actually shown to be depending on fears of impending climatic catastrophe in order to implement legislation which forwards deceptive long-term globalist agendas.

The SurfaceStations.Org Project
December 4, 2009
Grass roots efforts by a website SurfaceStations.org has surveyed over 1000 USHCN weather measuring stations so far, checking the legitimacy of their configurations. It is shown that a large proportion of the stations have issues such as being placed too close to hot air conditioner exhaust or being surrounded by pavement and concrete.




Fraud and Deceit in Selling Man-Made Global Warming (Book Excerpt)
updated December 6, 2009
These excerpts from the book "Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1,500 Years" explain a number of issues related to the global warming scientific community, including why many scientists publish misleading information about global warming, how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published false information claiming certainty of global warming being man-made, and explaining why claims of scientific consensus are not accurate.




Issues with the ”Hockey Stick Curve”
December 2, 2009
Up until 1995, most climate scientists had a common view of the temperatures of the Earth's climate over the past millennium to include periods being as warm or warmer than they are now, as well as periods which have been much colder. Scientific evidence and historical records show events such as a "Medieval Warm Period" between 700 - 1300 AD, and a "Little Ice Age" between 1560 - 1830 AD, which demonstrate wide temperature variability occuring in the climate without man's contribution of greenhouse gasses.

Currently the severity and global scope of the extremes of the past millennium's warming and cooling are debated, especially in light of a recently published graph known as the "hockey stick curve," which flattens previously accepted past high and low temperature periods, resulting in making current warming appear to be exceptional. This article explores many issues concerning the accuracy of the "hockey stick curve."





The Problems with Computer Models
running time 1 minute 47 seconds
This video clip from the documentary video ”The Great Global Warming Swindle” explains why climate forecasts created by computer models are extremely unreliable. Climate scientists are interviewed who explain that climate models are only as good as the assumptions that go into them, and if any one factor is incorrect, the entire result of the model can be wildly inaccurate.




Issues with Computer Models - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 1 minutes 41 seconds
This video clip discusses problems associated with the use of computer models for modeling climate behavior, and how much of the hype surrounding potential future global warming is based on such models which tend to have wide ranges of biases and inaccuracies.




The GISS ”Y2K” Programming Glitch
December 6, 2009
Climate change researcher Steve McIntyre of the website ClimateAudit.com had discovered an error in computer software which is commonly used for tabulating temperate records, now known as the ”GISS Y2K Error.” While the issue was not actually due to a ”Y2K” Glitch, the programming error started commencing in January of 2000 when it made temperatures appear to jump 1 degree C in the wintertime, and 0.8 degrees C annually.




Motives of the Globalist Establishment - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 26 minutes 48 seconds
This compilation of video clips from the documentary video "Global Warming or Global Governance?" discusses why many scientists, journalists, and politicians of the political establishment have an agenda of perpetuating the idea of current global warming being extreme and caused by man's activities, despite much surprising evidence to the contrary— largely due to common ulterior motives of offering solutions which actually impose deceptive and dangerous globalist agendas.

Global warming issues are being used by powerful political organizations to help form a centralized world government, through setting precedents for international controls and regulation which are shown to actually have little or nothing to do with global warming, such as the Kyoto Protocol. This video clip explains specifics of the true agendas of imposing global warming legislation.









A Summary of the Documentary Video 'Global Warming— or Global Governance?'

Global Warming or Global Governance?
"Global Warming— or Global Governance?" by Michael Coffman.
This article summarizes the documentary video ”Global Warming or Global Governance?” by Michael Coffman of Sovereignty International, presenting video segments from the video with descriptions and transcripts where appropriate.

The documentary examines the science and motives behind claims of the effects of global warming being extreme and created mostly by man’s activities, and shows how such claims are frequently exaggerated for deceptive and dangerous ulterior motives.

From the official website:

If you were to ask ten people on the street if mankind was causing global warming, at least eight out of ten would say yes. After all, Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth allegedly provides incontrovertible evidence that this is the case. Both presidential candidates are committed to passing economically devastating legislation that will do little to nothing to stop global warming. Contrary to what is heard in the media, however, there is overwhelming evidence that the warming we are experiencing is natural, with maybe a small amount contributed by man’s activities. Nor is there any scientific consensus. 31,000 scientists have signed a petition stating there is ”no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide is causing...catastrophic” warming. The debate is still raging within the scientific community. In this DVD, Sovereignty International has put together interviews of respected climate scientists and biologists from numerous sources who explain, step by step, why Al Gore and the global warming alarmists are incorrect. In some cases, blatantly so.

The DVD also provides evidence that the global warming agenda is being funded with tens of billions of dollars as a mechanism to create global governance. Hear from congressmen, experts and even well-known news broadcasters how global governance puts global institutions, especially the United Nations (UN), that are not accountable to the American people in control of every aspect of our economy. The skyrocketing gas and food prices today are a direct result of this agenda.

Temperatures Have Historically Driven CO2 Levels - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 1 minute 55 seconds
This video clip from the film "Global Warming or Global Governance" shows that a major premise of the film "Inconvenient Truth" is that Carbon Dioxide is the major greenhouse gas that drives the temperature of the Earth. In fact a high correlation does exist between CO2 levels and temperate, however examinations of ice core data proves that temperature levels have driven the levels of CO2, not the other way around. Historically CO2 levels have lagged temperature increases by as much as 800 years.





The Role of Water Vapor in Warming of the Climate  - from Global Warming or Global Governance
running time 2 minutes 56 seconds
This video clip from the documentary "Global Warming or Global Governance" talks about the proportional roles that various greenhouse gasses have in warming the climate.

The overwhelming majority of all greenhouse gasses is water vapor and clouds, with water vapor making up 96.9% of the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and Carbon Dioxide comprising less than 2%.

Many proponents of CO2 caused global warming claim that water vapor is highly variable across the Earth and from season to season, so therefore it is not important. Additionally, they claim CO2 has far greater potential as a greenhouse gas than a small amount would otherwise indicate. Although there is some truth to these claims, water vapor remains the dominant greenhouse gas.

At any one time, water vapor accounts for 36% to 76% of the total greenhouse gas effects, if clouds are included, it jumps to 66% to 86%, Carbon Dioxide comes in a distant third by accounting for only 9% to 27%. Man's activities account for only 3% of the total Carbon Dioxide, so at a maximum, man is responsible for only about 1% of all the potential greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.

We see the greenhouse power of water vapor every day. Temperatures in the desert can easily reach 110 degrees F during the summer, and during the night the temperature can easily drop down to 65 degrees, a drop of 45 degrees F. The change is so large because of very low water vapor in the desert. Conversely, because the humid deep south has high levels of water vapor, daytime temperatures rarely go over 100 degrees F, and drop to only 80 degrees at night, a difference of only 20 degrees. That represents a 25 degree difference between the deserts and the humid areas in day / night temperatures, all due to the amount of water vapor.

We also see the greenhouse effect of clouds on a regular basis. The temperature may drop to 50 degrees at night when it is clear, but it remains at 65 degrees when it is cloudy, a difference of 15 degrees or more between clear and cloudy weather.

The greenhouse power of water vapor and clouds dwarfs that of Carbon Dioxide. And remember, only a tiny amount of the Carbon Dioxide greenhouse effect is caused by man.

Professor Tim Patterson, Dept. of Earth Sciences, University of Carleton: "If you want to categorize greenhouse gasses ... Greenhouse gasses number one, two, three and four is water vapor, with Carbon Dioxide being a distant five. CO2 has an influence, but it is certainly not enough for us to worry about."





Sea Level Issues - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 4 minutes 3 seconds
This video clip from the documentary ”Global Warming or Global Governance” explains why the sea levels of the Earth will not rise by a significant amount over the next century, and debunks some of the exaggerated claims about the effects of recent climate warming such as the issue of declining polar bear populations.

While Al Gore claimed that sea levels could rise by as much as 20 feet over the next century due to ice melting on the edge of the Arctic and Greenland, it is shown that those claims are false due to the fact that as ice melts on the edges of those bodies, it tends to accumulate more in their centers due to increased precipitation.

On July 25, 1942, two B-17 Flying Fortresses were forced to make an emergency landing on Greenland's southern Ice Cap. The crew was rescued, but the planes were left on the ice. In 1988, a team was led to find the missing planes. They expected to find the planes within 40 feet of the surface, but they eventually found them 268 feet below the ice surface. The team used hot water to extract a plane, and it is now flying again. It is shown that the ice simply accumulated on top of the plane rather than pushing over it due to the plane being fully intact when extracted.




Links of Global Warming to Extreme Weather - from ‘Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 3 minutes 47 seconds
This video clip shows proof that extreme weather activity such as tornadoes and hurricanes are not made stronger by the warming of the Earth’s climate, and in fact such storms are decreased in severity due to such warming.

Following is a description of the information from this clip:

We frequently hear that the incidence and severity of extreme weather— such as hurricanes, blizzards, droughts and floods are increasing, and we are told that global warming is the cause.

History shows that storm frequency and intensity is greatest in colder periods. The extreme weather of the Little Ice Age from the years 1550 to 1850 provides a good example, the storms were much more dramatic then with intensity that has not been seen since. The Thames river in England would freeze over and there would be ice parties. Crop failures meant starvation and plagues were common. It was a very difficult time to live.

It is shown that the active 2005 hurricane season is not associated with global warming according to data from the National Hurricane Center, which shows that there is no corellation between hurricanes and a warming climate over the past 150 years.

Hurricane experts are almost unanimously say that it is highly unlikely the global warming is increasing the frequency and the intensity of hurricanes. William Grey, National Hurricane Center: "In our view they are well within nature's variation."

Recently research at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has demonstrated that global warming may actually increase wind sheer over the tropical waters of the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Tropical Zones, much like what happened in the 2006 El Nino year, when no hurricanes struck the United States at all. Wind sheer could keep hurricanes from forming, intensifying, or even cause them to disorganize.

( A NOAA animation is also show explaining how wind sheer due to warmer temperatures works to help dissipate hurricanes. )

In 1998 a major El Nino occurred which made the temperatures of the earth increase by 1 degree Celsius, and there has been no statistical increase in the climate's temperature since that year despite continually increasing Carbon Dioxide levels.

Also, in August of 2007, analyst Stephen McIntyre of the website ClimateAudit.org had discovered that NASA data supporting the claim that 1998 was the warmest year on record had contained an error, and in fact 1934 was the warmest year on record. Out of the five hottest years of the past century, three occurred before 1940, and only two were found in the past ten years.




Issues with The Hockey Stick Curve - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 4 minutes 57 seconds
This video clip explains inaccuracies with one of the most recently accepted methodologies for describing temperature variations over the past thousand years, known as the ”Hockey Stick Curve,” which has been put forth in a report in 1998 entitled ”MBH98,” which was quickly accepted by official organizations in the global warming community without proper auditing as the ”smoking gun” showing that recent warming is unusual. The report rejected previously widely accepted temperature graphs in favor of flattening the high and low temperatures over the past thousand years, which makes the current century appear to be out of the ordinary compared to the temperatures of the past.

In spite of many questions about the legitimacy of the ”Hockey Stick” graph, Al Gore prominently displays its results in his film ”Inconvenient Truth,” as do many official reports put out by the United Nations.




The Effect of Urban Heat Islands - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 1 minute 19 seconds
This clip from the film ”Global Warming or Global Governance” discusses the issue of ”urban heat islands” biasing temperature records which show that the climate is rapidly warming, due to the differences of temperatures measured in city environments as opposed to measurements taken in less populated areas.




Positive Effects of CO2 - from Global Warming or Global Governance?
running time 5 minutes 43 seconds
This video clip shows how elevated levels of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere are shown not to be harmful, and in fact have many beneficial properties for the growth of plant life.

Many periods in the Earth’s past history have had CO2 levels much higher than they are today, which has been shown to be corresponding with increasingly abundant plant life and also the domestication of many plant species.
