>Monday, July 17th – 8:00pm ,former VP Al Gore will be at Bookends

>Al GoreMonday, July 17th – 8:00pm
Former Vice President Al Gore will make a special visit to sign his NY Times Best Seller; An Inconvenient Truth. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet the former VP to Bill Clinton and expert on Global Warming!

Readers Speakout :

Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many Canadians, is a surprising assessment: “Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”

Appearing before the Commons Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development last year, Carleton University paleoclimatologist Professor Tim Patterson testified, “There is no meaningful correlation between CO2 levels and Earth’s temperature over this [geologic] time frame. In fact, when CO2 levels were over ten times higher than they are now, about 450 million years ago, the planet was in the depths of the absolute coldest period in the last half billion years.” Patterson asked the committee, “On the basis of this evidence, how could anyone still believe that the recent relatively small increase in CO2 levels would be the major cause of the past century’s modest warming?”

“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 to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system. ” al gore

The earth is actually COOLER now than it was in the 13th century. Greenland was named ‘Greenland’ by the Vikings because it actually WAS green at that time, at least along the shores. There were vinyards in England during the same period. The melting of free floating ice, such as the ice shelf along the coast of Antarctica, would not raise the sea level. In fact it could even lead to a lower sea level. This seems to defy common sense but is none the less true. Water has its greatest density at 39 deg F. Even the melting of glacial ice on land does not have the dramatic effect that is predicted. As the weight of ice is decreased the land mass actually rises. The increased water mass in the ocean also deforms the crust, pushing the seabed lower. The earth’s crust is plastic, changes in one area effect every other area. It is not the simple zero sum game assumed by global warming alarmists. Global warming is a mixture of fuzzy math, irrespronsible extrapolation of short term data, and politicly motivated antigrowth green party bullshit.

We urge the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December, 1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind. There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.from the Petition Project at http://www.oism.org/pproject/s33p37.htm.

>From Congressman Garrett ‘s Office

>Dear Friends:

On the eve of the anniversary of our nation’s independence, as we prepare to enjoy family and friends, parades and picnics, and, of course, fireworks, let us all take a moment to remember the men and women who make our freedom possible. If you know a soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine who is serving now to keep this nation safe or if you know a veteran who has made the freedom we now enjoy possible, please take a moment to say thank you.

May God bless the men and women in uniform, and may God bless America.

Sincerely,

Scott Garrett
Member of Congress
