Dr. Tim Ball, Chairman of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (www.nrsp.com) and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg is aiming to be the lone voice in the wilderness. Nevermind the thousands of scientists that are actually proving their research with fact, Dr Ball wants us all to chill (and the join the skeptics read Stockwell Day - remember him of Dino roamed the earth fame) - literally - and thank the sun for the recent upswing in global temperatures.
Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science. We are wasting time, energy and trillions of dollars while creating unnecessary fear and consternation over an issue with no scientific justification. For example, Environment Canada brags about spending $3.7 billion in the last five years dealing with climate change almost all on propaganda trying to defend an indefensible scientific position while at the same time closing weather stations and failing to meet legislated pollution targets.
The end of the world is not coming tomorrow with the current state of climate change, but you can't tell me the inaction is actually going to improve anything. The quest for energy independence is a good thing and it may actually have some green and economic benefits for a country like Canada.
Free speech is a right in Canada and Dr. Ball gets his two minutes.
