Since Scottsdale is full of global warming nuts, enjoy. Thanks to the Orange County Register for this - by Mark Landsbaum:
Imagine if the U.S. government said we will put economic growth ahead of reducing CO2, and in the process contradicted the UN’s IPCC holy scripture that claims we’re supposed to be melting to hell in a handbasket because of SUVs.
Well, India’s pretty much done just that. The reason? Because India has studied the matter and concluded:
“No firm link between the documented changes described below and warming due to anthropogenic climate change has yet been established…”
In fact, the report if full of stuff that must make Al Gore cringe.
The report says this about melting Himalayan glaciers: “The available monitoring data on Himalayan glaciers indicates while some recession of glaciers has occurred in some Himalayan regions in recent years, the trend is not consistent across the entire mountain chain. It is accordingly, too early to establish long-term trends or their causation, in respect of which there are several hypotheses.”
Oh course, the UN’s IPCC holy scripture says flatly: “The receding and thinning of Himalayan glaciers can be attributed primarily to the global warming due to increase in anthropogenic emission of greenhouse gases.”
The report also says India has zero plans to cut back energy use: “It is obvious that India needs to substantially increase its per capita energy consumption to provide a minimally acceptable level of wellbeing to its people.”
