Thank goodness for Google!
It seems Google has teamed up with Algore to make the world safe for everyone. They have decided to add the ocean floor and Mars to Google Earth. That’s cool. I’ll probably poke around a little and try to learn something from this.
But wait! What was Algore doing there? Oh yeah, he was there to show his support for their new ‘Global Warming Add-on’ feature. It seems they will use mounds and mounds of satellite data (sometimes dating back as far as a decade) to us how we are destroying the Earth. This is a new low in the shallow-data scientific propaganda that is the favorite weapon of the Greenies. Maybe, they drove up and down my street last week to get updated maps of how Global Warming was effecting the ice from the storm we had last Wednesday. I do live in Texas so the effects of Global Warming were pretty apparent the next day on that ice.
They intend to focus on ‘evidence’ that will support their view. For instance, they will show the melt off of the biggest glacier in Glacier National Park over the last decade. They probably will not focus on the glaciers that are growing in Norway, the Himalayas, on Mount Logan in Canada, on Mount Shasta and other places. This would not be good for their agenda. Just in case, however, people are not able to interpret disaster from the images, Google will provide videos ‘contributed by scientists and organizations around the world.’ By doing so, they will explain how the images support their Global Warming contentions.
I find it irresponsible and disingenuous for Google and a group of people who claim to be scientists (Al Gore and Jimmy Buffett are definitely not scientists) to put this out as if it will educate people about global warming. There cannot be enough data at Google’s disposal, at this point, to allow anyone, even a scientist to draw a conclusion about Global Warming, Earth warming trends or the possible effects of either.
The clincher was at the end of the FoxNews article where Google CEO Eric Schmidt said, “What it really is… is a platform for science and research and literally understanding the future of the world.” Isn’t that statement a little much? I buy that having this data as a repository for future study could be beneficial down the road, but a good scientist does not draw a conclusion, or ‘predict the future’ when only 1% of the data is available to study. Truly, you might as well use the melt off from my lawn last week to predict the future.
