Liberal Lies: Carbon Dioxide as a Pollutant and the Global Warming Lie

In this week's installment of Liberal Lies, the Twin Cities Conservative takes a crack at the supposed foregone conclusion that Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant.

Quick aside, the idea of denouncing or debunking commonly held liberal lies must be completely credited to AWESOME conservative author Gregg Jackson, who wrote the stunning conservative bible: Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies.

We've heard former President William Jefferson Clinton clamor on occasion that the the Republicans were conspiring against him. But it's plainly obvious that the Left has orchestrated a massive effort, on a global scale, to bring down the American economy through the lie known as global warming.

Here's the bottom line, and I hope that some liberals can embrace this:

According to Environmental Chemistry, "Carbon Dioxide is a natural component of the atmosphere and is needed by plants in order to carry out photosynthesis.?

Of course, liberal propagandists like Melissa Carey, a climate policy specialist for Environmental Defense smugly responds with clever comebacks like the following, "'Refusing to call greenhouse-gas emissions a pollutant is like refusing to say that smoking causes lung cancer,' responded Melissa Carey, a climate policy specialist for Environmental Defense, a New York-based environmental group. 'The Earth is round. Elvis is dead. Climate change is happening.'"

Au contraire, Melissa. In fact, there is a just momentum towards the theory that the Earth is actually cooling. Note your beloved liberal Time and Newsweek, which only thirty years ago portended a coming ice age.

Furthermore, there is no consensus in the scientific community that global warming 1.) exists; 2.) is caused by humans; and 3.) if it DOES exist, it is nothing more than part of cyclical weather pattern that has occurred for BILLIONS of years.

So don't proclaim to us, with your superior Liberal hubris, that "climate change is happening."

As Real states, "
The lesson to take from this is the obvious one: not to take your science stories from the mass media if you can possibly find better sources. Which nowadays are readily available: the IPCC report for a solid review of the state of the science; and RealClimate for more topical stuff."

Yet, it's the Mainstream Media that has perpetuated this Global Warming Lie. Despite efforts to suppress the climate change truth, diligent reporters, scientists, and general do-gooders have attempted to shed light on the global warming phenomenon.

Note the following headlines from

2008 on track to be coolest year this century
21 Aug 08- Data from the UK Met Office shows that temperatures in
the first half of the year have been more than 0.1 Celsius cooler than any
year since 2000.
See 2008 on track to be coolest year this century

Meteorologist predicts 'global climate will become
similar to the colder temperatures experienced during the 1800s'
25 Aug 08 - Global temperatures have cooled during the past 12 months.
During 2008 and 2009 the first stage of global cooling will cool the world’s
temperatures to those observed during the years from the 1940s through
the 1970s. By the year 2023 global climate will become similar to the
colder temperatures experienced during the 1800s.
See As cold as the 1800s
Probability 94% for imminent global cooling
20 Aug 07 - Australian engineer Dr. Peter Harris authored a paper entitled
"Probability of Sudden Global Cooling." The data clearly shows, said Harris,
that the nominal 100KY cycle for glaciation and the interglacial phases have
reached the end of the typical interglacial cycle and are due for a sudden
cooling climate change.
See Probability 94% for imminent global cooling

This sort of flies in the face of what nincompoops like Carey above have pontificated, doesn't it?

Note the following from the Weather Climate Report:

Antarctica Snowfall Increase

Filed under: Antarctic, Polar

The ice caps hold a special place in the cold hearts of the global warming advocates who are all too quick to insist that our ice caps are currently melting at an unprecedented rate. We suspect that they will not be particularly thrilled to learn that a paper has just appeared in Geophysical Research Letters entitled “A doubling in snow accumulation in the western Antarctic Peninsula since 1850.” The article is by scientists with the British Antarctic Survey and the Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nevada; the work was funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council and the U.S. National Science Foundation. In case you think that the Desert Research Institute in Nevada would have little interest in Antarctica, recall from geography classes you’ve had that Antarctica receives little precipitation and is regarded by climatologists as a frozen desert.

Finally, note this chart prepared by Cliff Harris and Randy Mann, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively, from

What does this tell you? It says that various warm cycles have occurred in eras PRIOR to pollution, industrial consumption, smog, etc. It also states that the Earth is fairly impervious to humankind; in other words, it's climate is independent from noxious gases, as cited by boneheads like Carey above, as contributors to "climate change."From what we know about the Earth's weather history, there was in fact more carbon dioxide, up to 80% over a billion years ago! Who was driving then?

So to pompous Leftists like Carey, don't preach to us about how "climate change is happening." OH wait, it is...except it's not getting hotter, it's getting cooler.
