Parts of New England are awash with heavy rains. Is it due to global warming? Florida is having a dry spell that is contributing to the wildfires they have been experiencing. Is it due to global warming? Parts of the West were bombarded with one storm after the other this winter. Was it due to global warming? The guest of Chuck Harder on his ?For the People? show doesn?t think so because he says that the global warming we are hearing about is actually just the normal cycle in weather patterns. The guest is Dr. Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute (HeartLand.org) where he is a Senior Fellow with an area of expertise in science and environment. Here is part of what Lehr shares with Chuck and his listeners: There was a normal warming trend from 1880 to 1940 and then again from the 1970?s to 1998. In between there was no warming of the earth and there were plenty of reasons why that would have continued if global warming was due to the increase of greenhouse gasses caused by man. Instead, says Lehr, global warming is a natural phenomenon that has been used as a politicized issue to promote a hidden political agenda. Why would someone (or some ones) do that? Lehr says that it is a way to move toward a need for a central government ?a world order. Chuck says he?s scared of what is happening. How about you? Click here to listen to this podcast.
