Weather-watch, watch closely

The local Meteorological Department forecast for yesterday was mainly dry weather with haze in the morning. And boy did you see that haze? Akhh! It felt like a thick, ‘thick’ grayish muddy layer begrimed with smoke was hovering over our heads. It was horrible. There was no wind, no sunlight no nothing, except that irritating haze spreading gloom all around. I wonder if if had something to do with “An inconvenient truth” hmmm

“An Inconvenient Truth” by Davis Guggenheim’s is a new documentary about the dangers of climate change, a warning of calamities and hoping for a Change. It consists mainly of a multimedia presentation on climate change that Mr. Gore has given many times over the last few years, with interviews and Mr. Gore’s voice-over reflections on his life in and out of politics.

It’s quite informative, revealing consequences of our nasty habits, things we take for granted. It gives eye-opening facts, scientific insight into how Global Warming has become mankind’s greatest challenge.

We need to take an action, soon!

    Are your intelligent readers in Lahore interested in junk science or the real inconvenient truth? There are some other perspectives on this topic of global warming where the real inconvenient truth may hide right in plain ‘alternate’ sight, the recent Nobel Peace Prize notwithstanding. Some of the greatest war criminals in the world have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize!

    Pls. start by reading this overview essay noted below and do some of your own research by following its citations to create a broader understanding of the issues related to Global Warming than what the mainstream press and the carefully crafted wisdom in the Pentagon seems to be dictating to the world.

    The real questions to ask are rooted in the observation that why so coincidentally are all the different ‘boogie men’ being crafted in the West since the fall of the Berlin Wall, from ‘WMD’ to ‘OBL’, to ‘Saddaam’, to ‘war on terror’, to now global warming, all of which are or were presumably putting the Western civilization in instant jeopardy – unless something drastic is done to the resource rich and fast developing overpopulated third world, primarily the nations of the Global South, the miraculous cure to all of Global North’s problems on the Grand Chessboard!

    In this (dis)information-age – or rather Machiavellian age of deception and double speak that seeks to conquer the world for the handful using the ‘techniques of infamy’ by inventing so many lies and half-truths to keep the citizens perpetually busy trying to figure out which of them might be true – the wizards behind the scene may be merely a lonely ‘Strangelove’ scary cat!

    Yes the weather is drastically changing worldwide – it may also be largely due to a combination of natural cycle of the Sun, perhaps aided by deliberate drastic weather modification attempts to induce ‘shock and awe’ dramatic changes for political purpose than industrial pollution and loss of our foliage cover alone. Search for “Weather modification” as weapon systems in google. Examine the coefficients of all these factors rationally by doing some reading. What might be the ‘most significant coefficients’?

    Which is the real inconvenient truth or rather junk science – the mainstream view, or the alternate view? You decide by starting here:

    “Global Warming: A Convenient Lie”

    And if you do come around to the alternate world view, one rooted in real scientific data and its rational analysis, and even if it is deemed a desirable rational goal to first reduce our gluttonous human overconsumption and primarily among the wealthy nations of the world as the have-nots are barely subsisting as it is on less than a dollar a day, then please also ask why is this ‘global warming’ mantra, like the ‘WMD’ mantra, and ‘OBL’ mantra, being pushed so hard – to the point of even awarding Professor Gore – the ‘genius’ who “invented the internet” – the Nobel Peace prize?

    Buddy, Wake up and smell the haze. An inconvenient truth was released september 2006. It’s not “NEW” anymore.
