It's not just a hype, it is an outrageous lie. And we can thank the bitter Al Gore for the hysteria. He is responsible for this with his slideshow. But, now, it seems he has a financial interest in the Global warming debacle.
Everyone in Washington is going along with it once they found they could "save the world" with a new tax. The Carbon Credit.
The sick part is that we need to go green to save the closed environment we live in, but this is not going to happen as it would impact profit negatively from those that run the planet. So, we have this great "debate" instead and meantime - for the oil companies, power companies etc., it is business as usual.
It is a diversion and a revenue enhancer for big corporations and government - that's it.
When the big companies are forced to pay a "carbon credit" they will merely pass this on to the consumer.
They can do this as they cannot defy the shareholders. that is their main resposibility and they are also shareholders. the good thing is they do not have to invest capital to clean up their act- they just do like Gore and buy "carbon Credits". What a sham!

"Gore has built a "green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can't afford to play on Gore's terms," writes blogger Dan Riehl.
Gore has described the lifestyle he and his wife Tipper live as "carbon neutral," meaning he tries to offset any energy usage, including plane flights and car trips, by "purchasing verifiable reductions in CO2 elsewhere."
But it turns out he pays for his extra-large carbon footprint through Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman. The company was established to take financial advantage of new technologies and solutions related to combating "global warming," reports blogger Bill Hobbs.
Generation Investment Management's U.S. branch is headed by a former Gore staffer and fund-raiser, Peter S. Knight, who once was the target of probes by the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice.
Hobbs points out Gore stands to make a lot of money from his promotion of the alleged "global warming" threat, which is disputed by many mainstream scientists.
"In other words, he 'buys' his 'carbon offsets' from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself," Hobbs writes. "To be blunt, Gore doesn't buy 'carbon offsets' through Generation Investment Management – he buys stocks."
