    Is Al Gore's version of global warming true?

    Not sure what Al Gore's version of global warming is but if it is that human beings are causing it I'm inclined to agree.   We have swarmed over the surface of this globe and caused almost illimiitable damage to the natural balance of nature. 

    It didn't just start with modern man.  The Romans turned the Northern fringes of Africa into a desert over 2,000 years ago.  The Spaniards did the same thing by chopping down most of their forests to make their great armada to invade England.  All over the world huge swathes of forest have gone.  And, as you know, in your own country Oaklahoma became a dust bowl because of the overplanting of wheat.   There were vasts forest right across America.  Where are they now?   A few pockets preserved against the loggers who would but even those down.

    But the real destruction began when our world population started to esculate in the second part the 20th and this century.  When I was born in 1936 the world's enitire population was estimated at 2 billion. India had 300 million.  It's now got well over a billion.  China - well!    In 75 years its more than tripled to close on 7 billion. 

    Forests and grass lands are the world's lungs.   We've been treating those lungs like a chain smoker.   W're hooked on 'progress' and won't take any heed of Nature's warings.  We know there has been huge melting of the ice caps.  We know the average temperature of the sea is rising round the world.   Even if it is partly a longterm 'Cycle of Nature' we are still, in my opinion contributing to it.

    The main thing you need to ask yourself, if you want a true answer, is this, is Al Gorte a politician?  Then you can determine the varacity of his words based on your experience of politicians.

    I believe that 'global warming' policies is a political way to keep underdeveloped nations - under developed for economic reasons and not to "save the earth" reasons.

    Look at multimillennial climate cycles - at one time the polar regions had palm trees.

    The cycles are called Milankovitch Cycles and the Mayan's calender was a measurement of only one of the parameters - the precession of the earth's wobble.

    Unlikely.  The alarmists - Al Gore being one of them - would have you believe that we are on the brink of global catastrophe.  Unfortunately for them, the data show otherwise.  Instead it is looking more and more like global temperatures are following a predictable and cyclical pattern.

    This is not to say that mankind has no effect on the climate, but only to say that mankind's effect is small.  The major driver for climate change is good old Mother Nature and there isn't much we can do about that other than to adapt.
