The whole global warming debate has to be a hoax. We live in a variable climate that has always varied as long as mankind has walked the earth. If this year is warmer than last year, it means nothing. If this century is warmer than last century, it means nothing. Next week may be warmer or colder than this week. It could go either way because we live in a variable climate. Even the reports that the earth has warmed in the last century can be doubted. Some of the official thermometers have been found to be within a short distance of pavement that attracts heat.
The ironic thing about the whole environment issue is that the governments of the world are by far the biggest destroyers of it. When you hear about one of those forest fires raging in California, it most likely originated on government land. The best answer to having a good environment is through strong property rights. When individuals are secure in their property, they can confront those that infringe on their property with pollution or anything else, as the justice system would provide a remedy of the situation with possible restitution. And more, when property is owned privately and not through the government, it is much more likely to be taken care of. People will treat their own property with the respect that it deserves, whereas government property will be abused, neglected, and possibly destroyed.
People need to stop being so phony about going green and start thinking with their heads. The green movement today does little, at best, to help the environment and it is a total waste of time and resources.
The global warming hoax is simply a corporate scheme to create an industry out of hysteria.
