Mainstream Media Deviates from the Script on Global Warming

The story seemed innocent enough. The Toronto Star reporting that recent good weather may save the city from breaking a record. A late burst of temperatures in the double digits may yet save this March from going down as the coldest in more than 40 years, according to Environment Canada's senior climatologist David Phillips.

Phillips is reminding Torontonians to think back to a year ago.

"We had almost a centimeter of snow on April 13 and on May 8, for gosh sakes, we had a trace of snow," Phillips said. "My sense is that it's still early to write the obituary on winter."

Snow in Toronto in May? What about all this global warming? What about Rick Mercer’s one-ton challenge? What about Kyoto and the fact that billions of Canadian dollars need to be shipped off to third world nations to buy emissions credits?

Scientists the world over have conspired to convince people that the Earth is over-heating and technology and progress are to blame. Big business and people with SUVs are turning out too much CO2 that is trapping the heat in the planet like a big green house. The polar ice cap is melting. Polar bears are starving. We need to raise taxes and create more government programs the liberals tell us.

Now the truth comes out that Toronto is experiencing the coldest winter in 40 years. Winnipeg recently had the coldest winter in 80 years. The evidence that global warming is wrong continues to pile up.

Politically, the global warming issue is the best excuse the liberals have for raising taxes and continuing to grow this oversized government. $5 billion dollars was earmarked in this year’s federal budget to reduce our CO2 emissions under the Kyoto plan. The federal liberals have absolutely no plan on how that money will be spent. Canadians have been told for years that the next generation of Canadians will bake under a glaring sun if we do not fix global warming.

The liberals have gone so far as to include reforms related to the Kyoto accord in an omnibus budget bill. At issue is a move that would delete the word "toxic" from the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. Eliminating the word toxic would allow the liberals to regulate substances under law including: carbon dioxide, methane and four other greenhouse gases targeted by Kyoto. Regulations would involve raising taxes and creating new branches of government.

If the omnibus budget bill fails to pass, new elections could be called. The liberals feel that Canadians are sufficiently duped on global warming that they would welcome an election on the issue. Paul Martin's liberals believe Stephen Harper would be making a major mistake to force an election over Ottawa's Kyoto implementation plan, which the Liberals say enjoys widespread support in the key electoral battleground of Ontario. This is the very same electoral battleground experiencing the coldest winter in 40 years.

The liberals will not be able to count on the key electoral battleground of Ontario if the mainstream media keeps deviating from the script.

It's not really scientists who are promoting global warming, but the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and politicians who blindly accept the utterances of the IPCC as fact.

Nothing could be further from the truth, as the data in the IPCC reports are often at odds with the IPCC's position.

Have a look at the book Taken by Storm by Canadians Ross McKittrick and Chris Essex. It exposes this whole charade.

Good Post Michael! You nailed it when you said,

"Politically, the global warming issue is the best excuse the liberals have for raising taxes and continuing to grow this oversized government."

Global warming is the big multi-purpose boogy-man that the enviromentalists are using to drive their agenda, and beleagered governments can try to use to deflect their citizens attention away from more important issues.

And guess who drafted Kyoto? Why non other than M.Strong ..Martins cheif advisor...A GREAT friend of Mr. Park the U.N. crook from N.Korea. Now why do you think our P.M. is so wild about Kyoto? More money for "the Cause" or "the crew" or "the old gang".
