Romney buys into global warming scam

Just quit, Mitt. Just quit.

4 Jun 11 - Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney admitted yesterday that he has bought into the global warming scam being foisted on America by the United Nations.

"I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that," Romney told a crowd of about 200 at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire.

"It's important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors," said Romney.

I can't believe it! Yet another politician wants to wreck the American economy over a problem that does not exist.

The fact is that most of the past 10,000 years have been warmer than now.

Created by Cuffy and Clow in 1997, and based on Greenland ice core records, this chart shows global temperatures for the past 15,000 years.

You'll see that today's benign climate is not even close to being the warmest on record. Not even close.

Temperatures have been warmer than today for almost all of the past 10,000 years.

In fact, if the chart went further back, you'd see that temperatures have been warmer than today for most of geologic history.

Global warming, global cooling, up and down we go, it happens all the time. They're both totally natural cycles.

Where do we rank in the long-term list of warm years?

This year will rank around number 9,099.

The climate has been warming slowly since the Little Ice Age, but it has quite a ways to go yet before reaching the temperature levels that persisted for nearly all of the past 10,500 years.

Just quit, Mitt. Just quit.
