Global warming is a topic stressed upon by many people worldwide, but if you stepped back and looked at the big picture, you would ask the same questions that I am asking today. Should we be stressing on this?

After years of research and programs and billions of dollars wasted away, global warming is still a controversial issue in the world today. Politicians have been pushing the public to go green and conserve and it is not helping anything because there is nothing to be helped. A famous politician by the name of Al Gore states that the earth is warming due to carbon dioxide being trapped in the atmosphere; he also states this with no logical evidence to back this theory up. Not only has our planet stopped warming in 1997 (backed by the Met Office & University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit), scientist predict a vast cooling period on earth. Recent reports from NASA scientists suggest that the earth is headed toward a solar cycle (the 25th solar cycle) which will be substantially cooler than the current cycle that we are in now. A small town in Alaska called Jim River almost reached the record for the coldest temperature in the U.S. in 2012 when their thermometer broke at one degree off of the current record (-79 degrees Fahrenheit). This information contradicts the theory of global warming completely and even provides evidence that we are headed into a global cooling period.

So I ask the question, Why? Why did the world believe this theory that lacks any evidence or scientific sources? Why did we buy into this big lie when over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition agreeing that this theory is bogus? This whole thing started with politicians not being able to accept defeat and back down, and now look where that took us, an estimated 106.7 billion dollars of taxpayer money thrown away from 2003-2010. Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Truth dramatized the effect that carbon dioxide had on climate change and changed some of his evidence...
