Dr William Gray on Global Warming, Al Gore, and An Inconvenient Truth

Friends,

For some reason the ‘God is not sovereign’ global warming, a-religious left crowd continues to push an agenda of fear, hype, and political correctness on otherwise peaceful, unsuspecting people. Children are also suffering mightily under the sway of fear-mongers and the a-religious left as they are continually indoctrinated by their teachers about what will happen to the earth if the student leaves a light on too long or continues to use a regular light bulb in his reading lamp or rides in a car instead of walking. (And other scientists continue to raise the specter of the dangers of bovine flatulence. We must beware! Jeff over at atheocracy has some great ideas for cow-tipping, perhaps that would aid in the quieting of their rear-ends. I personally think the best way to end bovine flatulence is by eating more cows.) But I digress…

I came across another story tonight about one Dr William Gray who is, evidently, “one of the world’s foremost meteorologists.” You should read the article in its entirety, but I want to note a couple of the more salient points the Dr made in a recent speech at the University of North Carolina. I will note them for you in bullet-point fashion without comment:

  • “We’re brainwashing our children,” said Dr Gray, 78, a long-time professor at Colorado State University. “They’re going to the Gore movie [An Inconvenient Truth] and being fed all this. It’s ridiculous.”
  • During his speech to a crowd of about 300 that included meteorology students and a host of professional meteorologists, Dr Gray also said those who had linked global warming to the increased number of hurricanes in recent years were in error.

    He cited statistics showing there were 101 hurricanes from 1900 to 1949, in a period of cooler global temperatures, compared to 83 from 1957 to 2006 when the earth warmed.

  • “The human impact on the atmosphere is simply too small to have a major effect on global temperatures,” Dr Gray said.
  • “It bothers me that my fellow scientists are not speaking out against something they know is wrong,” he said. “But they also know that they’d never get any grants if they spoke out. I don’t care about grants.”

Funny, that. Here all along I thought scientists were interested in truth. Here all along I thought our children were being taught facts, not myths. Here all along I thought that I should do something to help those poor, stupid polar bears. Here all along I thought Al Gore was a real scientist, with no political agenda, who had a genuine concern for me and my family and, ultimately, for world peace. Here all along I thought Al Gore was really sincere in his concerns for the environment. And here.

Man, I have been duped. Here’s hoping that science can continue to correct itself. We should be thankful: Science has warned us the dangers of smoking too closely to a pasture. For that we can be thankful!
