Global Warming Update III

The Assembly Transportation Committee held a hearing today on regulations requiring auto manufacturers to sharply reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists say contribute to global warming. Not!

The regulations were adopted by the Air Resources Board last September, to be phased in starting with 2009 vehicles. The Transportation Committee is looking to see if the regulations follow 2002 legislation that made California the first state to adopt the global warming fraud by demanding reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from autos. This is going to cost every new car owner from $1,050 to 3,000 per vehicle, starting in 2009.

The only problem with this whole farce is the ARB based their decision on the United Nations Third Assessment Report of the International Panel on Climate Change, which showed a huge hockey stick of rapid growth in global temperature. However, Canadian scientist Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick have found a fundamental mathematical flaw in the computer program use to produce the global warming “hockey stick.” The IPCC model produces the same rapid increase in temperature over the past 50 years, when test data made up of random numbers is used in place of the 70 different climate records, mostly derived from tree ring growth patterns.

That is right, random numbers produce the same results as the tree ring temperature data. Now, I ask you, do you want to pay more a $1,050 to $3,000 for you new car based on a computer math error?

Tell me what you think
