More Scientist Are Skeptical On Global Warming

It seems with each passing day, more scientist are becoming skeptical of global warming. Just yesterday, the American Physical Society, an organization representing nearly 50,000 physicists, are opening global warming to debate, which in quite funny since in 2007 they came to this conclusion:

"Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth's climate. Greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide as well as methane, nitrous oxide and other gases. They are emitted from fossil fuel combustion and a range of industrial and agricultural processes.
The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring."

Also a Australian rocket scientist is to becoming skepical on the global warming hoax:
"There has not been a public debate about the causes of global warming and most of the public and our decision makers are not aware of the most basic salient facts:
1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.
Each possible cause of global warming has a different pattern of where in the planet the warming occurs first and the most. The signature of an increased greenhouse effect is a hot spot about 10km up in the atmosphere over the tropics. We have been measuring the atmosphere for decades using radiosondes: weather balloons with thermometers that radio back the temperature as the balloon ascends through the atmosphere. They show no hot spot. Whatsoever.
If there is no hot spot then an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming. So we know for sure that carbon emissions are not a significant cause of the global warming. If we had found the greenhouse signature then I would be an alarmist again.
When the signature was found to be missing in 2007 (after the latest IPCC report), alarmists objected that maybe the readings of the radiosonde thermometers might not be accurate and maybe the hot spot was there but had gone undetected. Yet hundreds of radiosondes have given the same answer, so statistically it is not possible that they missed the hot spot.
Recently the alarmists have suggested we ignore the radiosonde thermometers, but instead take the radiosonde wind measurements, apply a theory about wind shear, and run the results through their computers to estimate the temperatures. They then say that the results show that we cannot rule out the presence of a hot spot. If you believe that you'd believe anything. "

Meanwhile, the Goracle, proposes a trillion tax hike to "End the use of Fossil Fuels":

"Our dangerous reliance on carbon-based fuels is at the core of all these problems – economic, environmental, national security," Gore said. "The answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels."
Despite winning the popular vote against George Bush in the 2000 presidential election, Gore has displayed no interest in returning to politics.
He shied away from specifics during the speech, not mentioning the trillion-dollar price tag of ending carbon-based electricity. Instead, Gore urged the US to institute a carbon tax that could be offset by reducing the payroll tax on employers.
"We should tax what we burn, not what we earn," he said.
Underpinning Gore's remarks, however, was a finely tuned sense of the economic anxiety that dominates American life 13 weeks before the next presidential election. He observed that the environmental, fiscal, and national-security dangers facing the country would be eliminated by a conversion to clean energy.

What a douche and the Guardian is nothing but leftist dribble at its worse, but that's the Guardian for you.

Yes, the Farmers almanac knows nothing. They've only been tracking climate zones in the US for 180 years, having nearly the same zones for the past 160 or so. Over the past 20 years, those zones have shifted north in the US almost a full zone, something that hasn't happened every in the history of weather tracking. Nothing to be alarmed about there.

They're growing corn in Siberia now, which they've never been able to do before. (Ask your Russian buddy about that...)

I'm just glad I live in the north, since soon that will be the place to be, as the south turns more and more into a desert. You should move south to prove me wrong GG.
