Saturday Viewing List

Gerry Charlotte Phelps helpfully linked to a very good Canadian Broadcasting System documentary called Global Warming: Doomsday Called Off that's available in 5 parts on YouTube.

Part 1: Sets up the controversy, laying out global warming theory, which as we know is now beyond debate, then introducing the idea that there are an awful lot of distinguished scientists who (gulp!) are still debating.

Part 2: Refutes the Holy Grail of Warmie hysteria, the hockey stick graph -- which, surprise!, is remarkably easy to refute.

Part 3: Wonders why the earth's atmosphere isn't warming if its surface is supposed to be getting so much hotter.

Part 4: Takes us to the Maldives, which the IPCC says will be under water in 50 or 100 years. But guess what? Ocean levels there are dropping.

Part 5: Takes on global warming's complex computer models and argues that actual observation just might be the better, more accurate approach ... and that actual observation consistently proves the models wrong.

It'll take you about 45 minutes to view the series, but it will be time well spent, providing you with ammunition for your next debate discussion with your Warmie friends.
