The level of media induced fear on man-made climate change is out of control. I beseech everyone to use your senses and make reasonable deductions from your own observations. In no way are we in a climate emergency. Statistically, there are fewer fires, flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes than in previous decades. Polar bears are flourishing, not disappearing. There is nothing urgent about ocean levels rising about the thickness of a dime annually. There were many periods in our history that were much hotter than today. For example, in the 30’s, when C02 levels were lower than today, the temperatures hovered over 100 in many States. There were many more days over 100 degrees than in the last decade. The earth goes in cycles of warming and cooling. We do well in warming periods and face shortages, famines and wars in colder times. Remember in the 70’s when there were fears of another ice age? Climate doesn’t change in a decade or two. It has to be examined in terms of centuries or millennia. Studies on man-made climate change are based on models and supposition. To my knowledge, man-made climate change is a thesis, not proven fact. No amount of money will change the climate! Mother Nature will do her thing with or without us.
Remember too that C02 is our friend. It is a basic element of life. It’s invisible. It does not cause warming. It’s the other way around. Warming allows the atmosphere to hold more C02 and this can take hundreds of years to play out. C02 levels are lower than they have ever been in our history. Water vapour is a much more influential factor in climate but no one is talking about it. Some say we are still in a C02 deficit. There are many benefits to increased C02: greening of the earth is accelerating, harvests are greater.
‘Global warming’ was replaced by ‘climate change’; I guess things weren’t warming quite like the alarmists wished so they switched to a phrase that is all encompassing so everything from hot, cold, wet, to dry could all be attributed to man-made climate change. With the successful use of fear, governments can blithely take our money to ‘fix’ it and we happily hand it over because they are going to ‘save’ us! Have a look out your window. Make your own assessment and take it easy on believing the climate alarmists. They want a redistribution of wealth and a new political system. If we play their game, they will achieve it.
