RUSH: Speaking of global warming, I gotta get in a plug here for Dr. Roy Spencer and his new book. He’s our official climatologist. It’s a great cover. The cover of this book is just superb. It’s called The Great Global Warming Blunder.
About half of the book is a nontechnical description of the peer-reviewed and soon-to-be-published research that Dr. Spencer is engaged in which supports the opinion that a majority of Americans already hold, and that is that warming in recent decades is mostly due to a natural cycle in the climate system, not to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning. Now, this book is surprising in a lot of ways in what it reveals about the so-called scientific community and how they are revered, when in fact they’re idiots. My word, not Dr. Spencer’s. He doesn’t refer to colleagues in such terms. (Publicly, anyway.)
But believe it or not, this potential natural explanation for recent warming means it may just be a cycle. What is so hard to believe about this? We’ve had ice ages, and we’ve had ice ages become warm periods, and there hasn’t been one thing humanity has done to create either. Yet scientists reject the cycles, just like Obama and the regime are now trying to reject and end cycles in business. Believe it or not, this natural explanation for recent warming — just natural cycle — has never been seriously researched by climate scientists. The main reason they have ignored it is that they cannot think of what might have caused it. It’s natural, yeah, but what’s causing it to get warmer? There has to be something causing it, and they focus on us. You see, climate researchers are rather myopic.
