If you are upset or scared by the notion of global warming, you may feel better after reading this. Consider the following questions. First, we must ask whether it is a man-made phenomenon? If it is not, our remedies are probably limited. Second, if we believe in global warming and we believe that it is man-made, then we must also believe that man has the capability to reduce it or any talk of a solution is a waste of our carbon-emitting breath.
For example, if man has caused global warming through the emission of green-house gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane, you may believe that a reduction in those emissions would reduce global warming. If you are correct, you would need to know what amount of reduction would be necessary to return the earth to its optimal temperature — whatever that is.
The earth absorbs approximately 33 million tons of CO2 emissions per day. It does this because CO2 is a necessary component to all green plant life. Without CO2, plants could not engage in photosynthesis, the process by which they convert CO2 and sunlight into energy. As part of that process, they emit oxygen, a necessary component to the lives of all humans and animals. That is either the greatest of cosmic coincidences, or it is a harmonious interdependence of life that demonstrates the complexity of a planet and ecosystem that man is presently incapable of comprehending — let alone diagnosing.
Because we are carbon-based life forms, even our decomposing bodies release CO2 after we die. In fact, this is the basis for a discovery called “carbon-14 dating,” the discovery of which revolutionized archaeology and gave scientists the power to date fossils they discovered. Carbon-14 dating works on the principle that carbon is emitted from almost everything. Scientists know the rate at which carbon is released. Knowing this, they are able to tell the age of a Woolly Mammoth or other fossils including ancient man. Other things that emit CO2 are breathing, the tilling of soil (soil is full of CO2 as it too is organic), decomposing plants and animals, and almost every other thing that takes place on a planet inhabited by carbon-based life forms.
If we could eliminate all CO2 emissions, plants and trees would die because they cannot live without it. Climatologists such as Lord Monckton, a leading scientist in the study of climate change, can scientifically demonstrate that there is no such thing as man-made global warming. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stij8sUybx0 In fact, the only evidence of warming at all is that the earth has warmed about one degree fahrenheit in the last 100 years. Lord Monckton can mathematically demonstrate that if you apply the data and method subscribed to by Al Gore, the United Nations, and other promoters of global warming snake-oil, man would have to eliminate allCO2 for a period of 30 years to reduce the earth’s temperature by one degree Fahrenheit. Thus, all animals, humans, and other carbon-emitting creatures and organic material, would have to be removed from the earth for a period of 30 years to reduce the temperature one degree. Lord Monckton is an extremely eloquent, and extremely learned scientist on climate change and his enlightening lectures can be found on youtube by typing “Lord Monckton”. You will also discover from him that a scientist at MIT recently developed a method for measuring the amount of radiation that enters the earth’s atmosphere as well as the amount that exits it. The difference is negligible. Thus, objective evidence now exists which proves that there is no green-house effect.
This begs the question as to why the global warming snake-oil salesmen continue to peddle their fraudulent product. The answer may be that they seek a concentration of power in government the likes of which we have never seen. This is becoming a familiar motive in Washington, D.C. these days for the expansion of government. Remember Obamacare?
Reluctantly, you should be aware that there is another motive which is far more predictable than the climate. It is money . . . lots of it. Al Gore is predicted to become the world’s first global warming billionaire because if the world is duped into the Ponzi scheme of “Cap & Trade,” he already has a franchise stake in the selling of “carbon credits”, a fictitious mandate that must be purchased from two other lucky souls aside from Al Gore. They presently enjoy two seats in Congress. The three of them will have monopolies on the virtual, fictional, and government-created currency called “carbon credits.”
Thus, the final question is even if you believe that the earth is warming, and that man is the cause, what is our government prescribing for this man-made earth-fever? The answer is “Cap & Trade,” a treatment which is undoubtedly worse than the cure and which is, in fact, no treatment at all.
A matter of equal concern is the recent name change from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change.” This is more than an inocuous name change. Rather, it is the conscious reponse from Global Warming proponents whose message is being defeated daily with record cold temperatures. In fact, the earth has been in a cooling cycle for years, but it has taken a back seat to Gobal Warming’s disinformation campaign. Ironically, we have this brutally cold winter to thank for catapulting the climate facts into the headlines.
But don’t expect the Warmers to give up that easily. House Minority Whip Eric Cantor has said that it will not stop snowing until Al Gore yells “uncle!” Interestingly, the Global Warming proponents have already begun to re-brand their movement. If you listen closely, you will notice that its proponents now refer to the “phenomenon” as “Climate Change.” This Orwellian adaptation tells you everything you need to know about this crowd. They are snake oil salesmen who are more interested in manipulating us than in any kind of global phenomenon. For example, before the re-branding, Warmers sought to explain the 10-year cooling cycle which was occurring at the same time as their movement was gaining ground. They sought to reckoncile the cooling by taking the position that Global Warming was resulting in global cooling. Folks, if you’re willing to buy that, then you are living proof that some people can be fooled all of the time.
But, how does Cap & Trade work? For an explanation, see the category entitled “Energy Policy.”
UPDATE: IN ITS NEW CLIMATE REPORT, THE UNITED NATIONS IPCC HAS FINALLY ADMITTED THAT IT REMOVED (THAT’S RIGHT) THE 200-YEAR PERIOD KNOWN AS “THE MEDIEVAL WARMING PERIOD). THAT HAS LONG BEEN THE CLAIM BY MANY CLIMATOLOGISTS. IF YOU REMOVE THAT 200-YEAR PERIOD, EVERYTHING THE U.N. IPCC HAS EVER PUBLISHED IS A LIE. EVER WONDER WHY THE CLIMATE ALARMISTS ARE CHANGING THE NAME FROM “GLOBAL WARMING” TO “CLIMATE CHANGE”? WITH THE NEW NAME CHANGE, EVEN COLDER CLIMATES CAN BE BLAMED ON GLOBAL WARMING! DON’T BELIEVE IT? TRY THIS ONE ON FOR SIZE: THE IPCC’S NEW REPORT ALSO INDICATES THAT WE HAVE HAD A 7% INCREASE IN CO2 OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS, BUT TEMPS WENT DOWN DURING THAT SAME PERIOD. FORTUNATELY, THE GENIUSES AT THE U.N. RECONCILED THIS “ANOMALY” STATING THAT THE GLOBAL COOLING OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS ACTUALLY MASKED THE OTHERWISE TREMENDOUS GLOBAL WARMING. HUH?!?! THAT’S RIGHT! IT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN REALLY HOT ON EARTH IF IT WEREN’T FOR THE FACT THAT IT GOT SO COLD!?!?! UNBELIEVABLE.
