By Jove, even the youth of Boulder, Colorado are onto the hoax…
UPDATE: Interestingly, the school principal happened to be in attendance and specifically asked the teacher to check the sources on this presentation only, however he did later apologize for singling out this one only…

Is global warming real?
My purpose is to expose the tendency of people to believe what they’re told without really thinking, using global warming as an example. And to offer solutions through raising awareness and educating the public. Now, more than ever is the time to think for ourselves, in this time of war, in this time of economic chaos, and in this time of environmental destruction.
One of the main problems faced by the whole world is our unwillingness to think for ourselves. We just believe and accept what we’re told by the government and the media. But have any of us considered that maybe what they tell us isn’t really true? Probably not. Global warming is a huge example of that.
Global warming only became a “hot” topic in the last several years. During this time, the government finally convinced many people that they were the cause of global warming, and now they should be taxed to find solutions for it. This is so even though taxing carbon would do nothing to improve the planet and would cause great financial hardship to people. Why is it that people actually believe that the earth is warming when there is extensive proof that it is cooling? (Mike Rivero).
According to Christopher Booker, in his “Review of 2008,” temperatures have dropped considerably in the past few years. Also, North America received it’s greatest snow cover since 1966 (Christopher Booker). Arctic web site, Cryosphere Today, reported that the Arctic ice volume increased 500,000 sq km from 2007 to 2008. Additionally, Antarctic sea-ice this year reached its highest level since satellite records began in 1979. Polar bear numbers are also at record levels (Cryosphere today). And, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, a respected research center in New York, made an analysis of surface air temperature measurements, and concluded that December 2007 to November 2008 was the coolest year since 2000. Their data also shows that the hottest decade of the 20th century was the 1930’s, not the 1990’s (Nasa’s Goddard institute for space studies).
Even with this information, very few people have made a big stand against global warming or the government.
My solution to the problem of people not thinking for themselves is to make them aware that the government and media are not always telling them the truth. Global Warming is an example. I plan to start small, like today with this speech, to tell people around me about what I’ve learned. Just educating a single person or a few people on the topic and becoming aware of what you are told by the government and the is the first step.
My plan will work because if we spread truth, along with proof, no one can disagree. And there is much proof like the information I have shared with you.
I chose this solution because it’s the only way to solve the problem: be open-minded ourselves and teach others to be also.
Our world is full of mind controlled people who believe whatever they are told. But imagine if people started to think for themselves, they might see through the lies they are told and stop powerful organizations from the terrible things they do. We would have a peaceful world with less secrecy, controversy, and problems, and more happiness and power to the people.
Please take action. Question what you’re told. By educating a single person you could help change the world some day.
So stop your tendency to believe what you’re told without thinking. Now, more than ever is the time to think for ourselves, in this time of war, in this time of economic chaos, and in this time of environmental destruction. Is global warming real?
