It turns out that there is an interesting news story behind the picture also. Another article published a week earlier in NewsWithViews.com by a Canadian journalist, Carole "CJ" Williams as cited in Booker's article tells the whole fascinatingly detailed background of the story behind the picture without using this picture. The title of Williams' 01-26-2008 article is "How the environmental extremists manipulate the masses." It is a highly recommended reading for anyone interested in the ins and outs of global warming matters. Here are some segments:
Al Gore, who was awarded a 2007 Nobel Prize for drawing the world’s attention to the dangers of global warming, as well as a coveted Hollywood Oscar in ‘07 for his documentary “An Inconvenient Truth”, stands to make millions of dollars selling carbon offsets through his London based corporation, Generation Investment Management.Gore, who apparently can’t tell a polar bear with nowhere to go from one that’s playing on an over-sized and wave-beaten ice cube . . .
Just as Gore’s endangered polar bear picture was a hoax, so is the assertion repeated by politicians and global warming/climate change criers that “2,500 scientists of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree that humans are causing a climate crisis”.but
. . . very few credible IPCC scientists out of the 2,500 who supposedly agree that global warming is manmade.
Virtually hundreds, if not thousands, of qualified and well respected scientists who have studied global warming and its causes and effects disagree with the IPCC scientists who were hand-picked by the notoriously corrupt United Nations organization to come to a consensual agreement regarding global warming. However, for the most part, those who disagree are being ignored by mass media, appointed bureaucrats, and our elected government officials.
And finally this conclusion:
The truth of the matter is that the man-made global warming fear factor is based on little but computer modeling, conjecture, hype, contrived hysteria, and the desire of bureaucrats, politicians and radical greenies to eliminate the use of fossil fuels and gain control of people’s lives.It's nothing complicate, just some common sense. Why should anyone fall for chicken-gore-little's mumble jumble?
