Global warming follies

I use Yahoo as the home page for my internet browser.  This exposes me to the daily global warming propaganda Yahoo publishes, with correspondingly outrageous, inflammatory headlines.  These types of articles are specifically selected to frighten us into acceding to the pro-warming political forces' demands, including surrendering our freedoms and our prosperity. 

The May 5 headline is "Earth Could Become Too Hot for Humans".  Oh, no!  Please make it stop!  We'll do anything you say!  Cap and Trade taxation?  No problem.  Global governance?  If that's what it takes, do it.  Those who stand to gain can't let this manufactured crisis go to waste.

The source article was written by Brett Israel, posted on the blog In the piece, climate scientist Matthew Huber was quoted as saying:

We found that a warming of 12 degrees Fahrenheit (roughly 7 degrees Celsius) would cause some areas of the world to surpass the wet-bulb temperature limit, and a 21-degree warming would put half of the world's population in an uninhabitable environment.

However, the article admits, "The study did not address how likely this worst-case scenario is..."  In other words, the study did not, as the headline would indicate, find that global warming will cause the Earth to become uninhabitable.  The study only determined the theoretical consequences of throwing human beings into an Earth-sized oven and turning up the thermostat.

This purposeful misrepresentation and propagandizing of science in order to enrich a political elite and enslave a populace makes me so angry I could burst into flame.
