There's hope!

Via Newsbusters comes a website debunking much of AlGore's Inconvenient Truth.

From a 15 year old.

Have a look!

Some snippets:

Before I begin, it is important to note that according to NOAA, El Ninos and La Ninas are not affected by increases in CO2 or any global warming that CO2 is claimed to caused.

It was while I was trying to find the cause of the unusual cooling period from 1945 to 1975 that I noticed a possible breakthrough. The cooling period from 1945 should not have occurred according to either of the competing solar or greenhouse theories, nor does it make sense from the standpoint that both theories may have contributed equally to the warming of the last 40 years (Solanki 2007).

The graph below is temperature observations since 1880 from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Notice the cooling period between 1945 and 1975. According to the greenhouse theory, this cooling period should never have happened because the atmospheric CO2 was steadily increasing. The same is true for the solar theory, solar activity was on the rise since 1910, the end of the Kristen minimum, and continued until 1960, then leveled out and has slightly fluctuated since. Before that period there was striking correlation between solar activity and temperature
Further research on the cooling effects of nuclear testing in the 1950’s and 1960’s needs to be done.

Solar activity is and has always been what drives the climate system.

Steps need to be taken to create distance between science and political parties, and science and financial motives.
