Keiser Report (E163): Ratings Racket

This week Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, report on declaring war on rating agencies and buying refrigerators to save the economy. In the second half of the show, Max talks to Professor Emeritus, Guy McPherson, who has exited empire to build a post-carbon community.

Great first half of the show but I have to disagree with their AGW talk in the second half since I believe any climate changes are driven by the Sun and it's not half as ice free as Stacy mentions. There has been speculation about hotter conditions but what we've experienced is record heat AND THEN severe winters - not the mild winters that we were told to expect.

Besides, we know that during the Medieval Warming Period it was hotter than today and there was farming on Greenland. Currently, it appears there has been a redistribution of temperatures, with record cold in South America and Australia and warming elsewhere.
