Biden Wrong on Global Warming
Biden's comments about global warming during his debate with Sarah Palin indicate he holds a very dangerous view about Earth's climate, climate change, and global warming.
Biden claims he is absolutely convinced that global warming is real and that it is caused by human activity.
The facts tell a different story:
In short, the AGW theory is based on assumptions about a science that is poorly understood and in its relative infancy. It relies upon inappropriate use of parametric simulations based on assumed feedbacks that cannot be scientifically verified or validated. And, to top it all, the theory is rendered invalid by multiple inconsistencies with observed reality! (no greenhouse warming signal, polar cooling, global cooling since 2002, ocean cooling, sea level drop due to ocean cooling, etc.)
Yet Biden, for reasons best known to himself, believes this theory wholeheartedly!
If Biden is so committed to such an obviously flawed theory (where has he been since 2002 when temperatures began dropping?), does he have the objective intellectual capacity to deal with less obvious issues?
In a word, no.

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
