2009 Western Governors' Meetings on Climate Change

In June, 2009, as Utah's Lieutenant Governor Gary Herbert (now governor) attended a series of Western Governors' meetings on climate change (radical environmentalists can't make up their minds whether Earth is warming or cooling). Herbert has expressed skepticism over whether man's role in global climate change is settled. He sides with thousands of scientists who disagree with Al Gore on climate change.

Anyone who was awake during those basic science and geography classes back in grade school knows that Earth has always gone through climate cycles. They know that the planet was warmer during the Viking era a thousand years ago than it is today. They know about Lake Bonneville which covered much of Utah and Nevada. They know much of North America was covered with 4,000 feet of ice just a few thousand years ago. They know that the oceans were once 500 feet lower than they are to day and that man's CO2 did not cause sea level to rise to where it has been for the past several thousand years.

The point is that Earth's climate has always gone through cycles because of its relationship with the Sun -- not man. To presume that man has the power to affect global climate one way or the other is the epitome of arrogance and ignorance. The temperature has dropped over the past 10 years while the radicals are whining about global warming!

The radicals who want ever more control over our lives -- especially Obama and Gore -- are very selective about the "facts" they choose to use in imposing their agenda on the people by fostering fear and panic on a largely ignorant government-educated public. Anyone who has been outdoors long enough to be remotely aware of the incredible power of the Sun (which also goes through cycles) to heat and illuminate the earth is far more powerful even than Al Gore's power to illuminate minds. To presume that man is so powerful he can affect climate in spite of solar and Earth climate cycles is the epitome of arrogance and ignorance.

How will the United States will look once nature's cyclical global cooling kicks in and no one will be able to afford to heat their homes because of carbon taxes introduced to prevent global warming?

I applaud Governor Gary Herbert for staying awake in those science classes through which the radical environmentalists and Al Gore slept. Man-caused global climate change is a scam! Herbert is one a few Republican politicians who have the courage or knowlege to say so!
