VIewpoint: Global warming is a scam, not a crisis

By Michael Imhof

Anderson resident




Global warming is a scam. I’m not the only one of this opinion. John Coleman, Weather Channel founder and meteorologist, has repeatedly gone on record blasting this bogus doctrine.

More recently, speakers at the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change in New York City, have drawn attention to this charade. Many were making a case that global warming is politically motivated and has nothing to do with science. More than 70 scientists, representing the views of tens of thousands of their colleagues, made the argument that media and environmental advocacy groups have it all wrong, that global warming is not a crisis. I could not agree with them more.

One of the prominent speakers was European Union and Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus. President Klaus is an outspoken critic of manmade global warming doctrine in Europe. He compared the global warming hysteria to the communists of old Europe. Global warming treats people as if they’re naive, uninformed, and confused. Communists treated people in a similar manner. It’s not about climate change, it’s about a mechanism to control and manipulate.

Another keynote speaker was Dr. Richard Lindzen, who has been Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT for over 25 years. Dr. Lindzen acknowledged that it took him awhile to realize that global warming was a highly organized political movement, and that opposing it was an uphill battle. He said that it has nothing to do with science.

Dr. Lindzen, one of the world’s most respected atmospheric physicists, said that many of his good friends and colleagues have supported global warming out of fear for their jobs, or as a means to get funding for scientific projects. He also referenced the use of supposed “climate models”. He contends that climate models are being fed erroneous data in order to get the results that the global warming alarmists desire.

The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

The council rushed the vote for zoning the land for business.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.
