Dr. Weeks’ comment: The first fatality in the war against freedom, the first right we lose as we clutch at “security” (by the way, that terms certainly needs to be defined fully!) is the freedom to fully engage in a reasoned and intellectually rigorous dialogue about critical topics. When two sides differ, the right to free exchange and decisions based upon the merits of arguments is thrown in the ditch and trod upon by shrill protectors of the public interest. First opposing views are ridiculed (an intellectually cowardly gesture) then vilified (a more despicably dishonest gesture) then a period of impotent co-existence of differing paradigms hover until common sense prevails. Think Galileo and the “discussion” he has with the Catholic Inquisition. Think holistic doctors and the “discussion” we have with our respective state medical boards. But here following, for those with open and curious minds, are some arguments against the generally accepted concept of global warming. It makes for interesting reading and primes us for more intelligent discussions with those with whom we disagree.
I have never been to the arctic, so I can’t vouch for the first article, but I studied political philosophy in college and have been an interested observer of political processes – both domestic and internationally – in the present and historically. Therefore I do know about the technique of cultivating a “threat” which not only unifies a population against a common enemy but also unifies them into compromise of principles “for the common good.” Global warming is controversial – all I ask is that we also see it as an instrument of population control – a common threat which can be used as leverage to coerce us towards policy changes which depart radically from the rights of man and freedom from government intervention. – As I write these words about global warming, it is snowing in Seattle in February and my honeybees are confused in their hives … and they aren’t privy to the varying opinions about global warming….
THE POLITICS OF GLOBAL WARMING
In summary, our position on global warming is that it is a real phenomenon but it is cyclical, has occurred many times before in Earth’s history, is caused primarily by cycles in solar activity, is NOT caused by industrial activity, is NOT dangerous (in fact is beneficial), and is being used as a scare tactic to frighten us into accepting greater government control over our activities and our lives. This page is devoted to a hefty sampling of the reasons for this view.

Head of space research at Russia’s Astronomical Observatory in St. Petersburg says we are headed into a mini ice age. The global warming of the previous century was not caused by greenhouse gasses but by high solar activity, and the current temperature decline will continue with or without a rise in CO2 levels. He says a reasonable way to combat cooling trends is “to maintain economic growth in order to adapt to the upcoming new Little Ice Age in the middle of the 21st century.” IceAgeNow 2010 May 20 (Cached)
