Is “Global Warming” True?
No! We are simply experiencing normal weather and climate fluctuations.
We are living at the end of the “20th Century Warm Period.” The “20th Century Warm Period” followed a time called “The Little Ice Age” that lasted from approximately 1250-1300 through 1850-1900. Prior to “The Little Ice Age,” the earth experienced a period referred to as the “Medieval Warm Period” (MWP) or “Medieval Climate Optimum.” The earth was significantly warmer during the MWP than it is today!
Even evolutionary climatologists have proven scientifically that the earth has experienced three periods of time much warmer than today’s warming trend. The various periods of warm and cold, that have been named, have been determined to be approximately:
The Minoan Warm Period – 1450 to 1250 BC
The Roman Warm Period – 250 BC to AD 1
The Dark Ages Cold Period – AD 1 to AD 800
The Medieval Warm Period – AD 800 to AD 1200
The Little Ice Age – AD 1250 to AD 1900
The 20th Century Warm – AD 1900 to AD 2010

What is the historical evidence?
We have significant historical evidence with which to trace the major fluctuations in climate change over the past few millennia. These sources include, but are not limited to:
The thousands of years of records of the Nile floods
The 1st-century Roman wine production in England
The thousands of museum paintings that portray sunnier skies during the Medieval Warm Period
The thousands of museum paintings that portray the cloudier skies during the Little Ice Age
The physical evidence from oxygen isotopes, beryllium ions, tiny sea and pollen fossils, ancient tree rings, polar ice cores, sea and lake sediments, cave stalactites and stalagmites, glaciers, etc.
These and many other sources illustrate that the earth has had periods of climate much warmer than today.

Is there scientific consensus that “Global Warming” is true?
NO! Consensus is not the same as truth. Consensus is not data, and it is not the same as a scientific fact.
NO! Dr. Richard Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT, former lead author of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC), wrote about global warming: “… the consensus was reached before the research had begun.”
NO! The current promotion of the global warming scare is purely a far left political agenda.
NO! “Global Warming” is simply the new home of socialism and communism.
NO! The earth’s temperature has been fluctuating up and down for thousands of years because of well established and documented variations in solar activity. These are:
The Schwabe Cycle: Sunspot activity follows an eleven year cycle that causes the sun’s temperature to fluctuate up and down 0.1%.
The Gleissberg Cycle: A cycle every 75 to 90 years.
The Suess Cycle: A cycle every 200 to 500 years.
The Bond Cycle: A cycle every 1,100 to 1,500 years.
