The stupidity of global warming claims and actions is reaching new heights. Europe is considering banning sports cars such as Ferraris and Porsches, claiming they have high CO2 emissions. What a joke.
There are not enough Ferraris and Porsches on the road to have any global impact. On a recent trip to Europe, I witnessed 20 to 30 airplanes at every airport waiting to take off, each with four engines running and spewing out CO2. The airports are far greater sources of CO2 than Ferraris and Porsches combined.
Global warming is likely the greatest hoax of our time. The people who say CO2 causes global warming don’t seem to be able to explain why in the period of 1940 to 1975 CO2 emissions increased significantly, while the global temperature decreased.
The Keeling curve, which is widely used to show the increase in CO2 emissions, is based on data from the top of Mount Mona Loa in Hawaii. Mona Loa is a volcano and it doesn’t seem to me that a volcano is the best place to be taking CO2 measurements.
Several law firms have lined up to handle global warming lawsuits and many companies are planning to use this latest “scare” to their benefit. Politicians such as Al Gore have made a second career out of global warming, offering slick productions with no scientific proof. As the old rule says “follow the money.”
