Another Day, Another Scientific Fact That Helps Disprove Manmade Global Warming

Yet another gaping hole[1] has been torn in Al Gore’s favorite theory,

The world’s oldest tree has been found in Sweden, a tenacious spruce that first took root just after the end of the last ice age, more than 9,500 years ago.

The tree has rewritten the history of the climate in the region, revealing that it was much warmer at that time and the ice had disappeared earlier than thought. […]

It had been thought that this region was still in the grip of the ice age but the tree shows it was much warmer, even than today, [Prof Leif Kullman at Umeå University] says.

“Spruces are the species that can best give us insight about climate change,” he says.

The summers 9,500 years ago were warmer than today, though there has been a rapid recent rise as a result of climate change that means modern climate is rapidly catching up.

So, let’s see: according to the global warming alarmists, manmade greenhouse gasses are having such a powerful impact that they’re causing the entire planet to heat up and if we don’t dramatically curb our emissions, in the very near future, then we’re doomed, doomed, doomed, as the earth becomes dramatically warmer and causes flooding, death, and general higglety-pigglety. That’s about it, right?

Of course, this tree presents a major problem for that theory because it shows that it was much hotter 9500 years ago than it is today. Yet, there were many fewer human beings on the planet, no planes, no SUVs, no energy sucking “Al Gore” mansions, etc.

Doesn’t that seem to suggest that,

#1) …greenhouse gasses are not the primary drivers of temperature on the planet?

#2) …it’s entirely possible that the very mild amount of warming we’ve experienced in the last century is just part of the natural temperature cycle of the earth?

If #1 and #2 are true and quite frankly, the preponderance of scientific evidence seems to suggest that they are, then doesn’t that mean Kyoto is a waste of time and that Al Gore and the rest of the global warming alarmists are jackasses?

Yeah, it does.
