Arguing With “Global Warming” Idiots
Jim O'Neill, Canada Free Press
22 Feb 10 - Here's a great article from
such good responses to the global warming fraud that even
though I don't
agree with every word, I feel compelled to post it.

posted a simple ten-question test online, concerning AGW (Anthropogenic
Global Warming). If you familiarize yourself with the correct answers to
this quiz, then you will have the “ammo” to deal with the deceitful
criminals behind the global warming racket.
It’s your money—don’t let them continue to steal it.
For the sake of those who don’t have the time, or inclination, to take
the quiz, I (Jim O'Neill) have supplied an abbreviated version of
the test questions and answers below.
(See full test here:
(1) Question True or False.
“Global warming” is a real phenomenon: Earth’s temperature is
Answer True. “Global warming” is a real phenomenon: Earth’s
temperature is increasing. From a geological perspective, global warming
is the normal state of our accustomed natural world. Technically, we are
in an “interglacial phase,” or between ice ages. The question is not
really if an ice age will return, but when. If Global Warming stops,
then you can start worrying! It means our warm interglacial phase is
over and we may be heading into another Ice Age.
(2) Question True or false.
The “Greenhouse Effect” is real and contributes to global warming.
Answer True. The “Greenhouse Effect” is real. The “greenhouse
effect” helps to moderate temperatures—especially nighttime
temperatures. Without the greenhouse effect, the average temperature of
the Earth would be -18 degrees C (around zero degrees Fahrenheit).
(3) Question Multiple choice.
The main cause of Global Warming is:
Answer Orbital eccentricities of Earth and variations in the
Sun’s output. Global Warming occurs in cycles caused mainly by changes
in the sun’s energy output, and the sun’s relative position to the
earth. [NOT industrial pollution, automobiles, airplanes, and CO2].
(4) Question Multiple choice: The Greenhouse Effect is caused primarily
Answer Water vapor. The world’s natural wetlands produce more
greenhouse gas contributions annually than all human sources combined.
[That’s worth re-reading].
(5) Question Multiple choice.
Which most accurately describes the effects of Global Warming in the
United States over the last 100 years?
Answer Temperatures have risen less then 1° C during the past 100
years. During the period 1900 to 1940 temperatures were increasing. Then
from 1940 to 1980 temperatures were decreasing. Currently, temperatures
are increasing back to about where they were in the 1930’s. Overall, the
total average annual temperature increase in the U.S. in the last
century is so slight the actual amount is uncertain—maybe 1/3° C
(6) Question Multiple choice.
How much carbon dioxide (CO2) is in Earth’s atmosphere today?
Answer Less than 1/10th of 1%. Most CO2 comes from natural
terrestrial and ocean biologic activity, and compared to former geologic
times, Earth’s atmosphere today is arguably “CO2 impoverished.” There
has historically been much more CO2 in our atmosphere than exists today.
(7) Question True or false.
Carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants damages forests.
Answer False. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the principal gas that
trees and other plants need to survive, just like oxygen (O2) is the
principal gas that humans and other animals require. Carbon dioxide is
invisible. The fat, curvy towers that look like they are belching white
smoke are really only emitting pure water vapor. They are in effect
(8) Question Multiple choice.
Which answer below provides the best explanation for the temperature
record [over the past 1,000 years]?
Answer Natural variations in global temperatures may occur in
roughly 500-year cycles. The primary cause of variations in global
temperature is due to the cycles of the sun and Earth’s orbit about the
sun. In addition to 40-year cycles and 500-year cycles, other
temperature cycles include:
● 21,000 year cycle: Elliptical orbit of the Earth around the Sun
● 41,000 year cycle: Cycle of the +/- 1.5 degree wobble in Earth’s orbit
● 100,000 year cycle: Variations in the shape of Earth’s elliptical
(9) Question Multiple choice.
Which of the following is not true about an increasing greenhouse
Answer The idea that most scientists think that “global warming”
warrants drastic action—is false. President Clinton and others [e.g. Al
Gore—see above] cite a letter signed by 2600 scientists that global
warming will have catastrophic effects on humanity. Thanks to Citizens
for a Sound Economy, we know now that fewer than 10% of these
“scientists” know anything about climate. Among the signers are: a
plastic surgeon, two landscape architects, a hotel administrator, a
gynecologist, seven sociologists, a linguist, and a practitioner of
traditional Chinese medicine.
Over 17,000 [real] scientists have signed the Global Warming Petition to
express their view that “there is no convincing scientific evidence that
human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is
causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating
of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.”
Which temperature measuring method most accurately measures global
Answer Orbiting weather satellites provide the most accurate
temperature measurements. The real signature of greenhouse warming is
not surface temperature but temperatures in the middle of the
troposphere, about 5 kilometers up. Interestingly, in the 5 years
leading up to 2007, the temperature of the mid troposphere actually
decreased slightly and surface temperatures ceased warming—even as CO2
concentrations continued to increase. This should not have happened if
CO2 increases to the atmosphere are the primary driver of global
So there you have it. You are now armed with sufficient knowledge to
insulate yourself from The Big Lie, and defend yourself against its
vociferous, duplicitous proponents.
Don’t expect them to back off, simply because intelligent, sane people
prefer the truth to their b.s. They will continue to lie—more stridently
than ever—and their propaganda arm, the liberal press, will continue to
trumpet their falsehoods.
But we are hip to the con. Time to start suing yet?
P.S. A tip of the hat to Glenn Beck, and a thank you to GeoCraft, for
their informative test.
