And as for Global Warming

I have made it clear that I do not believe in all and out "global warming" and I never have. I do believe that we are experiencing massive earth changes, but they are not all because of carbon emissions and now (thankfully) thousands of scientists are changing their tune and echoing my long held belief. While we have to be stewards of the earth, it's important that we take into account the geophysical changes on earth in order to come up with workable solutions.

Haven't you noticed that "global warming" has conveniently now been dubbed "global climate change" by the powers-that-be? It was a "course correction", yes...but one that was done to save face in mounting evidence to the contrary.

I believe that a lot of the melting of the ice caps is due mostly to underwater volanic activity and volcanic activity in general and that we are also in the beginning of a mini-Ice Age and in April the Arctic Ice has set 30 records, one for each day (http://www.iceagenow.com/Arctic_ice_sets_30_records_in_April-One_for_each_day.htm) There have been record snowfalls throughout Western America this month of May.

I have long been following the work of  Robert Felix (author of Not by Fire, but By Ice) who has long contended that the earth is cooling. And now, Prentice-Hall is actually including his work in one of their college textbooks thereby lending (finally) even more credibility to his often overlooked work.

(Listen to an interview with  Felix and other scientists here: http://itsrainmakingtime.com/2009/climate-part1/)

The gravest problem we face is that billions of dollars have been spent on programs to address "global warming" when almost nothing has been spent on finding out why the earth is cooling. If we are not careful, we will be hit blindly and not be prepared for what seems to be the real earth changes.

I can only report this to you. It is the first week of May and I am wearing turtleneck sweaters and a coat here during the day. It has been really cold here. Last August, I was wearing jumpers (sweaters to you Americans) in August. Spain has reported the coldest May in history.There has been record snowfall in Switzerland and France.

What's wrong with this picture? And more than that, why were so many people duped into believing this myth?
