>> Dear Kai,
>> I read your comments about "The Great Global Warming
>> Swindle " with interest.  I wondered how you missed
>> the whole point of the video.
>> The main points are:
>> Man made emissions are trivial and CO2 concentrations
>> do not drive global warming.  It is not a cause and
>> effect relationship, so x% increase in CO2 will have
>> no effect on global warming.
>> The great oceans are a tremendous reservoir for CO2
>> which buffers the effect of current emissions,
>> spreading it over hundreds of years.
>> The primary factors for global warming (and cooling)
>> are the SUN and the CLOUDS (water vapor).
>> These are factors over which we have absolutely no
>> control.  So to limit the underdeveloped countries to
>> not using the energy sources available to them and
>> asking them to get there electricity from solar and
>> wind generators is ridiculous and cruel to the poor
>> people of those countries.
>> The earth has a tremendous capacity for temperature
>> control since it was designed by the ultimate expert.
>> So we need to back off from trying to control the
>> uncontrollable and develop the energy sources He has
>> made available to us for the benefit of all mankind.
>> Sincerely,
>> Blaine N. Howard
