WS Radio: Global Warming debate


Listen live (QuickTime), Mondays, 4 - 6 p.m. EST

"Political Animals"--the flagship radio show of Western Standard radio--is a weekly political talk show on 88.1 WBGUFM hosted by Jay Lafayette, Peter Jaworski, and Terrence Watson.

Royspencer Today, our phone-in guest will be Dr. Roy Spencer, former climatologist for NASA and author of "Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor."

To debate Roy in the studio, we have invited Dr. Todd Albert, an instructor in the Geography Department at Bowling Green State University. According to his BGSU page, "Dr. Albert is deeply concerned with global climate change and urges everyone to take a strong stance in reducing their own                                                          carbon emissions."

Gerry Nicholls, one of the best political pundits in Canada, will, as always, join us at the top of the first hour to talk about Canadian politics.

Political Animals is on every Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, broadcast out of 88.1 FM in the Bowling Green, Ohio area, and on www.wbgufm.com worldwide.

Aren't they afraid that Suzuki will send his Cheka (Czarist era secret police) after them for 'denying' the magisterial science behind climate change?

That's pretty funny, Zebulon. (Todd Albert is on Suzuki's side, by the way...)

Lets see...
Global warming is man made....no it isn't.
Global Warmimg is now climate change...yes it is.
Global Warming will bring drought, it will bring flooding, it will bring record snow, it will bring famine, it will bring prosperity.
Ya know what? it will bring whatever it brings and no amount of "tax" money is going to change that. The earth itself produces a huge amount of CO2 and by comparison we are simply too miniscule to influence that. The whole thing is almost as ridiculous as Saint Suzuki and the the Goreacle themselves. I think I'll go turn myself in to the authorities now.

When a 'skeptic' completes a study contract and reports the findings to 'industry' he/she gets paid.

When a 'warmer' completes a study and reports the findings to government, if ominous concerns are declared the study gets extended, if the declaration is that there is no concern, the funding ends.

If you are actually curious about findings funded by neither government nor industry see http://www.middlebury.net/op-ed/pangburn.html

Significant warming of planet earth ended in 1998. If it wasn't for the 22 year period from 1976 to 1998 when the atmospheric carbon dioxide level and average global temperature happened to increase at the same time, the term 'greenhouse gas' would be virtually unknown and Kyoto and the rest of the Global Warming Mistake would never have happened. It is going to take a long time to un-brainwash much of the public and get some climatologists and the IPCC to abandon their self serving agenda.
