When it comes to the issue of global warming, most of us have been duped. When I was first presented with the idea that it was a hoax, I was quite protective of my viewpoints on it; it has become a religion, a mantra. Global warming has been a household word for some time now; it may be difficult to look at an opposing viewpoint, especially as the warnings become more dire and we’re told the World faces ‘irreversible’ climate change.
One of my primary concerns was for the poor polar bears who Al Gore told us were losing their home. Many of us have seen the photos of polar bears seemingly stranded on an iceberg. The photo however, was taken out of context:
Another Global Warming Hoax exposed
The videos and articles in this post will provide an ample amount of information to get you started into discovering who and what’s behind the hyped global warming scare:
Global Warming: Al Gore is wrong again
Some more pieces of the “How Al Gore is Going to Become Amazingly Wealthy by Selling Climate Hysteria” puzzle came together Friday when the Silicon Valley venture capital firm he’s now a part of announced a $500 million investment in green technologies.
Making matters more delicious, the firm already has investments in many of the same companies Gore admitted in March he has a stake in.
To begin untangling this web, let’s first take a gander at what was reported Friday by the San Francisco Chronicle (emphasis added):
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers said Thursday it will invest $500 million in green technology companies that have passed their earliest stages of growth and are maturing.
The venture capital firm also will invest in green-tech startup companies as part of another investment fund it introduced Thursday, which will invest $700 million over the next three years in startups.
For those that have forgotten, this is the same VC group Gore joined last November as reported by NewsBusters.
Here’s where the plot thickens. The KPCB website identified the following companies this group has already invested in: Altarock Energy Inc, Altra Biofuels, Amyris Biotechnologies, Ausra, Bloom Energy, GreatPoint Energy, Mascoma Corporation, and Miasole. Full Story
Good news to know that the truth will always out–even when you’re Barack Obama.
“Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program He Is Now Pushing Through Congress” is a FOXNews story by Ed Barnes. In short, “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president.”
The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”
And that’s only the beginning of this tawdry tale, Mr. Barnes.
The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange is heavily influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong.
For years now Strong and Gore have been cashing in on that lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming. Full Story

There are however, still important environmental issues – deforestation, poisonous pesticide/herbicide usage, and GMO’s. Reducing our ‘carbon footprint’, using less resources, remains an important mission, especially for Americans who, though only five percent of the world’s population, consume 26 percent of the world’s energy.
