More Denial in the Calgary Herald

Where to look

Kent Hehr misses the main ingredient for finding funding to offset education shortfalls. By eliminating the climate change expenditures, he will find a few billion dollars, in one fell swoop.

The sooner the Conservatives get off the man-made global warming scenario, over which we have no control, the better off our books will look.

There is no correlation between rising greenhouse gas levels and global temperatures; more importantly,
any recent global warming ended in 1998. Temperature oscillations have occurred for millions of years, without man's influence. Canada should opt out of Kyoto at the first opportunity (2012).

Note: Charles Simpson is the former president of the Friends of Science.
Schweinsgruber: Simpson contradicts his Friends of Science in that his world started cooling in 1998 while the Friends of Science proclaim 1st January 2002 as judgement day the start of cooling. In contrast, the rest of the world as well as the scientific community and some fellow deniers (e.g. Patrick Michaels) speak of ongoing global warming.

Swindled

Re: "Where to look," Letter, May 20.
It is so nice to see more people spreading the word about the global warming swindle. We indeed should withdraw from the Kyoto agreement, but this must happen quickly.

According to
Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition (climatescienceinternational.org), we have until the end of 2011 to quit without violating international law.

The withdrawal must happen a year before the protocol expires, else Canada will be found in violation due to our inability to meet our commitments.

Start pressuring the politicians now.
