We all know that Al Gore invented global warming shortly after he invented the internet!!!

Global climate change is also believed to be caused by the 65,000 year + ice age cycle. We are still coming out of the last ice age before we start cooling again and have another ice age.

Global volcanic discharge causes more temperature fluctuations than man made activities.

M. Todd starts with “We all know…” The only thing anybody knows when this illogic statement is made is there will be more junk stuff to follow. What he claims we all know is then a distortion of the following statement Al Gore made on Wolf Blitzer’s show in 1999.
“During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.” This was citing the legislative initiatives he had been involved with. Political spinsters then took it into “invention” by distorting meaning and context. People to lazy or stupid to find out the truth behind the hype have perpetuated the distortion.
Next, “Global climate is also believed ... .” By some and in a previously undisturbed set of circumstances.  “Global volcanic discharge cause more temperature fluctuations than man made activities.” Sorry, M. but volcanic flucs are temporaries of occurrence , while the mankind activity just keeps increasing. Besides, they are additive not exclusive. Man has two things going as well. He is adding carbon, both CO2 and CH4 (20 x CO2 in effect) and reducing vegetation that produces oxygen by removing CO2.
It is half-baked logic and thinking, like the inane statements put forth by M. that continues this decline. A new record high for CO2 registered just days ago.
Yet nay-Sayers take refuge in things like saying volcanoes “are worse” when they are just another contributor; or, “it is a natural cycle” which are only cyclic when there are no changes made by other sources like releasing more CO2 and reducing the O2 from CO2 production at the same time.

Quotes by Mark Twain: “Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
