Oceanic Volcanoes Roil Waters

3 Mar 10 - (Excerpts) - Al Gore is at it again, ranting and raving in
the pages of The New York Times.
Despite winters of increasing severity and the recent disclosures of
outright trickery by the avatars of the global warming religion, the
former vice president continues to preach sermons of gloom and doom,
shrieking warnings that the planet is about to be roasted like a pig on
a spit, thanks to the evil ways of mankind.
It's hard to blame him: He's simply found the path to enormous riches —
hundreds of millions of dollars in payment for his role as the pied
piper of climate change. In all modesty, as far back as 1997, when I
wrote my series "Behold the Iceman Cometh," I sought to warn that Gore
was embarking on a crusade to persuade the world that the Earth was in
the process of self-immolation and it was all your fault and mine.
However, he’s blaming the wrong culprit. Atmospheric CO2 has increased
because, as Robert Felix of iceagenow.com has demonstrated, an excess of
volcanic activity in the world’s oceans is heating those oceans, which
Wrote Felix: "I think underwater volcanic activity is thousands of times
more prevalent than now believed.
"As I say in ‘Not by Fire but by Ice,’ those underwater volcanoes are
pumping red-hot lava — 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit hot — into the seas and
heating them. That's ten times the boiling point! (See the chapter
entitled ‘Fish Stew.’)
"In turn, the warmer seas pump ever more moisture [and CO2] into the
skies, which inevitably results in ever more precipitation. When that
precipitation falls in the winter, you have the makings of an ice age. I
think we're seeing that happen right now. It's not global warming, it's
ocean warming, and it's leading us into the next ice age."
Back in the ’70s, there was universal agreement that we were approaching
the onset of a new ice age.
According to "Understanding Climate Change,” which the National Academy
of Sciences published in 1975, (page 181), "The present interglacial
interval — which has now lasted for about 10,000 years — represents a
climatic regime that is relatively rare during the past million years,
most of which has been occupied by colder, glacial regimes. Only during
about 8 percent of the past 700,000 years has the earth experienced
climates as warm or warmer than the present.
"The penultimate interglacial age began about 125,000 years ago, and
lasted for approximately 10,000 years. Similar interglacial ages — each
lasting 10,000 plus or minus 2000 years and each followed by a glacial
maximum — have occurred on the average every 100,000 years during at
least the past half-million years.
“During this period, fluctuations of the northern hemisphere ice sheets
caused sea level variations of the order of 100 meters."
"Few paleoclimatologists would dispute that the prominent warm periods
(or interglacials) that have followed each of the terminations of the
major glaciations have had durations of 10,000 plus or minus 2000 years.
In each case, a period of considerably colder climate has followed
immediately after the interglacial interval."
Nothing has changed since that report was issued — it has never been
refuted. Yet the academy enthusiastically embraced Gore's global warming
theory without blinking an eye — and jumped on the multibillion-dollar
global warming express.
There is not a single shred of evidence that global warming is under
way. The whole scam is based on temperature readings taken from sensors
around the world in locations that became immediately suspect as a
result of the emergence of the climategate scandal, in which facts and
figures routinely were manipulated to show global warming was a real
Global warming is a scam that has made Al Gore filthy rich, created
government rules and regulations that can strangle our fragile economy
and cause greater unemployment. It is nothing short of criminal.
