One to upset Al’s true believers
Global warming a hoax for political gain, Larry Bell tells Round Table – Presenting the antithesis to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, college professor Larry Bell describes the global warming crisis as something that was manufactured for political gain.
“The climate issue is one of politics, not of science,” Bell said.
Author of Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax, Bell was the opening speaker Thursday for the Palm Beach Round Table’s 2011-12 season.
The luncheon meeting was held at The Colony. Bell, an endowed professor of space architecture at the University of Houston, has received awards for his work regarding international space development. He also is a weekly columnist with Forbes.com.
Bell said people have promoted global warming theories for political gain.
“Without fossil fuels, there’s no justification for Cap and Trade legislation,” he said. “Without carbon-free fuel, there’s no basis for subsidizing all of these alternative energy sources — the wind, the solar and the hydrogen and the others — which lack any capacity to make a significant difference in our energy picture.”
There needs to be a climate scare in order to justify growth in government, particularly in the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as to appease powerful environmental lobbies, he said. (Palm Beach Daily News)
