Item Description...
An expose of some of the more controversial agendas behind global warming argues that poor-quality science and dishonest politics are contributing to the intentionally disporportionate and self-serving levels of fear.

Publishers Description
Global warming":
the Left's last best chance to gain a stranglehold on our political system and economy
For decades, environmentalism has been the Left's best excuse for increasing government control over our actions in ways both large and small. It's for Mother Earth It's for the children It's for the whales But until now, the doomsday-scenario environmental scares they've trumped up haven't been large enough to justify the lifestyle restrictions they want to impose. With global warming, however, greenhouse gasbags can argue that auto emissions in Ohio threaten people in Paris, and that only "global governance" (Jacques Chirac's words) can tackle such problems.
Now, in The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism, Christopher C. Horner tears the cover off the Left's manipulation of environmental issues for political purposes--and lays out incontrovertible evidence for the fact that catastrophic man-made global warming is just more Chicken-Little hysteria, not actual science. He explains why, although Al Gore and his cronies among the media elites and UN globalists endlessly bleat that "global warming" is an unprecedented global crisis, they really think of it as a dream come true. It's the ideal scare campaign for those who hate capitalism and love big government. For, as Horner explains, if global warming really were as bad as the Leftist doomsayers insist it is, then no policy imaginable could "solve" it. According to the logic of the greens' own numbers, no matter how much we sacrifice there would still be more to do. That makes global warming the bottomless well of excuses for the relentless growth of big government.
Horner (an attorney and senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute) reveals the full anti-American, anti-capitalist, and anti-human agenda of today's environmentalists, dubbing them "green on the outside, red to the core." He details how they use strong-arm legal tactics--and worse--against those who dare to point out the weakness of their arguments for global warming. Along the way, he explodes ten top global warming myths, carefully examining the evidence to determine how much warming there really is and what is actually causing it. He exposes the lies that the environmental lobby routinely tells to make its case; the ways in which it is trying to impose initiatives such as the Kyoto Protocol on an unwilling American public; and much more--including the green lobby's favorite politicians (John Kerry, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and others).
It's time to stand up to the environmentalist industry and insist: human beings are not the enemy. In breezy, light-hearted, and always entertaining fashion, The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism gives you the facts you need to do so.

Follow the Money  Aug 30, 2008
Another example of how, as the saying attributed to Benjamin Disraeli goes, there's "Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics". Like many things ( or I should say most things ) when one "follows the money" it often leads to the perpetrator. I remember when my children were small and had all those "why" questions they always do. Other than "why is the sky blue" type questions, the answer, as any good detective will tell you, is usually because of money. Make no mistake, "Global Warming" is about two things, politics and money.

The liberal scare mongering left would want us all to believe that without more government intervention ( which always translates into higher taxes and costs ) we will never survive the latest world ending tragedy upon us. Or as the author humorously notes, their publications about the end of the world always seem to have an annual renewal card enclosed ! The author develops a great case how the Kyoto Protocol is really about controlling Energy Policy. It was rejected by the US and 155 other countries, representing the majority of the world's economic activity and its population. It is a European treaty with one dozen others of which NONE are in fact currently reducing their emissions. How do the BRIC countries feel, Brazil, Russia, India and China ? They are all for having these major countries sign on. Why ? The cost to meet these impossible standards are of such staggering proportions that they gleefully declare "you, but not us". We would only become even more non-competitive with these countries as we are forced to raise our prices astronomically to adhere to the treaty. If you think you have seen jobs lost to overseas countries recently, just wait. "Cap and Trade" is a direct result of this policy, showing us once again how great sums of capital can be realized by producing nothing. I give credit to the people who dream these schemes up though, enriching themselves greatly while impoverishing others. Hey, just another day in the boardroom. OK I admit it, I'm jealous, I actually have to work and produce to earn a paycheck.

And of course, let's not forget, George Bush, who is evil incarnate. He is solely to blame for all the world's problems ( I know this because my liberal friends tell me so, he was even responsible for hurricane Katrina ! ) but none of the positives that may have come about, such as the recent handing over of Iraq's Anbar province to its people, or the successful foiling of terrorists activity within our country's borders. Just a minute while I count up how many attacks since 9/11. Oh, that was easy, it would be NONE. Then we have Nancy Pelosi ( the failed author now ) who is "Trying to save the planet " by refusing to act in the interests of the American people( I thought that was her job )and allow any drilling which would go a long way in helping America become more energy independent. Just as a side note, why haven't any more of those annoying actors and other celebs left the country yet anyway ? They did promise if Bush won a few years back didn't they ? OK, there was Johnny Depp, now living in France. But other than J.D. could it be the simple fact that because it is better here than anywhere else ?

Now, how are the statistics used to prejudice facts you may ask. On page 40 the author explains- "A combination of the absurdities occurred when President Bush introduced his 'Clear Skies Initiative'. This set of regulations aimed to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions by a projected 73 percent, mercury by 69 percent, and nitrogen oxides by 67 percent. Natural Resources Defense Council and their cohorts decried this policy as an increase in pollution. They charged that Bush's policy would triple mercury emissions and increase sulphur by 50 percent. You see, the greens were advocating even stricter rules promising even larger emission reductions, enabling them to characterize 'Clear Skies' as an 'increase,' if only relative to the plans they had drawn up in their fancy offices".

Now I am weak in math but I believe their logic goes something like this - I ( the greenie ) ask for a 60% reduction, and you ( the evil Bush ) want to give me ONLY 40%. Therefore you are giving me an increase of 50% ( add 50% of 40, or 20, to the number 40 and it is now 60 and VOILA - since I wanted 60% and I only got 40%, so you have given me an increase of 50%, not a decrease. This is ENRON type math at the very best. Apparently the facts don't matter when dealing with these people.

Statistical Example #2- the greens would have you believe that based on weather station reporting that the earth's mean temperature is warming. The definition of mean will play no factor in their number. Why ? Because they fail to include the fact that reporting weather stations that were once included were in very cold areas of Russia. As the country began falling apart economically, they took those stations offline, thereby removing those LOW numbers that used to be included, thereby leading to higher overall numbers. Using my weak math skills again, I believe it's like this. I have a series of 20 numbers - 10 are 10 and 10 are 6. The average is 100+60 = 160, now divided by 20 = 8. I introduce the new weather readings( excuse me, numbers ) and have the following after taking the lower reporting stations offline ( sorry, I mean lower numbers out ). I now have the following set of numbers - 10 are still 10 but now only 6 are now 6. This gives me a total of 100+36 = 136. Divide 136 by 16 and the number is 8.5. Oh my word, the temperature of the earth has risen - based on my ( faulty ) SCIENTIFIC METHOD by .5 degrees or statistically by 6.25%. The result is a catastrophic scenario and a huge problem as my "statistical research" just "proved"
( actually, it's only a problem for those interested in keeping the "scientific method" scientific however ).

By the way, the above mentioned 6.25% is an example of how one uses statistics to "prove the point", or as more intelligent, unemotional, nothing financially to gain people may say - "Lie".

Follow the money. Many of the people pushing this agenda also have much to gain financially as new regulations are put into effect. Just look into how much Al Gore has at stake as these regulations become legally mandatory. In case you were not aware, Al Gore has joined Silicon Valley's Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers Venture capital firm. As luck would have it, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers specializes in alternative energy investments. So Al is in a position to greatly profit by the efforts to offset the disasters that are attributed to Global Warming.

The author also discusses that while there are some glaciers receding there are also other glaciers increasing. For some reason we never hear about that but instead get pictures of a polar bear "stranded" on a block of ice floating in the middle of nowhere. Great picture, and really was worth a thousand words but sorry, I was under the impression that polar bears could somehow swim ? ( They can by the way, regardless of what others may try and tell you ). Besides, I have it on good authority that particular bear was simply tired and took a rest by hitching a ride to his next stop. And those great pictures showing the large slabs of ice falling off the icebergs, more "proof" the planet is heating up - or not. The scientific term is "calving" and the author explains how it happens because the iceberg has actually gotten to large to maintain its size so these pieces breaking off happen as a normal course of events and are in no way related to "Global Warming".

If they can keep us in fear, we can be told to turn to them ( government ) for more intervention and regulation to help solve the problems. After all, we all know it worked out so well with their handling of social security and the national debt.

Finally, one of the things the green machine really hates is for someone who decides to learn about this subject to bring up the fact that wasn't it just recently they were predicting we were going to perish from a new ICE AGE ? Or as stated by Nigel Calder in International Wildlife, June of 1975, " The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind". And there was Paul Ehrlich who stated in his 1968 book, "The Population Bomb" that " the battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s and 1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now". Where did they hide all those bodies anyway ? Oh, I forgot, we are facing a population explosion as well as increased obesity epidemics. But don't ever let the facts get in the way of a good story.

EXAMPLE - please read the few RECENT short articles below regarding global warming at links below. The Science strongly disputes what the Eco's would have you believe

Bogus "science" paid for by oil companies  Jul 9, 2008
Let's see, should we believe the 95% of climate scientists and the IPCC reports on global warming? Or should we believe a man who works for the "Competitive Enterprise Institute", a conservative think tank funded by oil companies like Amoco and Texaco?

Wake up people--global warming naysayers paid by oil companies are hardly credible sources of information.

If thousands of astronomers from around the world said that an asteroid would hit Earth in 30 years, would you believe them? Or would you believe a handful of pseudo-astronomers (paid for by special interests) who claim otherwise?
Shrill diatribe  Jul 7, 2008
This is a shrill and near-libelous diatribe against greens, environmentalists, the media in general, and Al Gore in particular.
Its only redeeming feature is the last two chapters that actually give some reasoned information about why the Kyoto Protocol might be counterproductive.

If you can get that far without going postal, I salute you. These two chapters are the only reason I give this book two stars instead of one.

Global warming or global government?  Jun 27, 2008
Christopher C. Horner begins his polemical "The PIG to Global Warming" by letting the screeching cat out of the bag: "Green is the new Red." The full cast of environmentalists, UN leaders, heads of industry, think tanks, and a certain American past presidential candidate-cum-pantheist guru are now today performing what the Soviet Comintern failed to accomplish back in the 20th century. Looking at how Al Gore currently strengthens his spiritual `oneness' with Creation (his annual electricity use in Nashville rose 10% in 2008, source: The Daily Telegraph) and works to reduce his `carbon footprint' while simultaneously jetting around the world on carbon-belching planes, I think skepticism is a healthy first-step before one blindly accepts Mr. Gore's often fabled `truths.' You certainly will not get skepticism and critical thinking from the likes of CNN, MSNBC for FAUX (Fox) News.

The mainstream media shy away from accurately portraying the global warming issue, instead opting for alarmism, the parroting of falsehoods and outright lies, and the sucking up to powerful elites like Al Gore. This book is a welcomed relief, a near 300-page work of logical reasoning, sound scientific methodology, and careful political analysis. Horner documents environmentalism's ties with communism (Mikhail Gorbachev is a major player in the UN and `climate change' movement), the science behind global warming, the real profits and political ambitions that lie beneath the surface, and the destructive costs of global warming policies to the American consumer and economy.

"Green" environmental movements suspiciously coincide with the political elites' plans for global government. According to Paul Johnson's April 23, 2007, article in Forbes, "The Menace of the Lobby," the number of "Greens" in Great Britain may well be in the millions. What exactly are their plans? For one, the denial of man-made climate change, according to environmental activists, would be considered a criminal offense on the scale of denying the Holocaust. Another sought-after goal is the subjecting of financial penalties on any particular activity that cause an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. These environmentalists all have the blessing of the Royal Society, Britain's most influential and prestigious scientific institution. Will these policies set sail for American soon? With "Sustainable Development," a UN/US program for governmental control over land, water, housing, and food, progressing without opposition in the United States, they may well already be here.

Al Gore receives his own chapter in this latest edition of the "PIG" series. Although Mr. Horner decimates the shoddy arguments, half-truths, and outright falsities of "An Inconvenient Truth," the author largely ignores the fact that Gore's crusade shelters deep spiritual and religious zeal conveniently wrapped inside the name of science. Gore's first book, "Earth in the Balance," gives headway to the idea that Gore's message is intensely religious. His earth-centered spirituality calls for "saving the planet" to be the "central organizing principle" of government. "[A] panreligious perspective may prove especially important where our global civilization's responsibility for the earth is concerned.... Native American religions, for instance, offer a rich tapestry of ideas about our relationship to the earth....'All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.'" ("Earth in the Balance, pg. 259) Al Gore's pantheism is a perfect accomplice to the UN agenda of creating a universal spiritual outlook.

The next time you fill up your gas tank in order to make the commute to the job that pays for that fuel and puts food on the table, remember that it was Al Gore and your member of Congress who refused to allow drilling in ANWR and offshore locations near Florida and California. It was not Greenpeace or any other environmental group. This inaction led to the energy catastrophe now hitting America (and expected to get worse). "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism" factually documents the powerful forces behind this movement, who desire a one-world government, increasingly large energy costs, "carbon taxes" and dastardly cap-and-trade systems, all in the name of "protecting the environment." However, a proper response cannot be issued without educating yourself (by reading this book) and educating your elected representatives and senators. If they are voting for the devastating consequences described in this book, vote the bums out and elect new members who will represent the American people. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that when government pursues destructive ends without the consent of the governed, it is the people's RIGHT (not option, but RIGHT) to alter and abolish it, and to institute new government. Be thinking of those words when you go to the ballot box this November.
