Climate Change Hysteria
Global Warming Causes are Still Uncertain and Unproven
By Scott Rohter, September 2012
Science writer Michael Lemonick in his new book entitled “Global Weirdness” compares climate change to lung cancer. He likens the warning on the back of a pack of cigarettes to the constant browbeating that we are forced to endure by a certain small but vociferous segment of the scientific community, along with their political mouthpieces back in Washington D.C., and in the journalistic community. These pseudo scientists seem hell-bent on trying to brainwash all the rest of us into compliance with some kind of a carbon trading scheme. Selling carbon credits will no doubt make many of them rich! However there is no genuine scientific consensus about whether there is, or there is not an increase in global temperature, and even if there is …whether an increase is caused by human activity. We don’t actually know yet whether the curious phenomena we are witnessing which used to be called global warming, but is now vaguely referred to as climate change is the result of human activity or the result of something much bigger.
There is even less consensus on whether the phenomena that scientists think we are experiencing is really anthropogenic in nature, or whether it is the result of something else in nature, something that is much bigger and far more complex than we are, namely the Sun in the sky! You know that big furnace overhead doesn’t actually come with a thermostat on it! But all of the progressives are in such a mad rush to sell us on the idea of man-made global warming, and that we mere mortals can actually do something about it! This is no doubt so that they can all cash in on their investments in companies that sell carbon credits. In other words they want to convince us about the incredible benefits of buying and selling carbon credits, and using non-fossil fuels just so that they can all get rich!
What any person with even a pea sized brain knows is this: There is a world-wide political effort going on right now to force the developed nations of the world to subsidize the developing nations of the world through transfer of wealth payments that are derived from carbon taxes and carbon trading schemes. This push is far more apparent than any conclusions about whether the earth is actually warming or not, and if it is… then what is really causing it! The Indonesian volcano Krakatoa spewed more carbon into the Earth’s atmosphere in a single momentous event than all of the cars that ever rolled off the assembly lines of Henry Ford and Karl Benz!
Mr. Lemonick states in his new book that it took a long time for the Surgeon General’s warning about the health hazards of smoking cigarettes to be taken seriously, and so it is logical to assume that it will also take a while for the risks related to global warming and its associated warnings to be taken seriously as well! But wait a minute! Not so fast!… Mr. Lemonick, whose name just happens to rhyme with demonic, is actually making some pretty broad comparisons which is kind of like mixing apples and oranges.
I am no etymologist but I can easily see that the two root words of the name Lemonick is “lemon” and “ick”, and I am already starting to get a sour taste in my mouth. The Surgeon General’s warning on the bsck of a package of cigarettes was about the health hazards of inhaling cigarette smoke that is laced with tar and nicotine, and other carcinogenic chemicals directly into our lungs. He wasn’t referring to inhaling just plain old carbon dioxide, or putting carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere which is an entirely different matter. The earth’s atmosphere doesn’t behave like a healthy pair of human lungs. The earth’s atmosphere actually likes carbon dioxide. The earth’s atmosphere actually takes and absorbs carbon dioxide… and for that matter so do our lungs!
Global warming or climate change or whatever the heck politicians prefer to call it at the moment is not caused by the amount of heavy metals, tar, and nicotine that are mixed in with the carbon dioxide that human beings are putting into the air. Likewise it is not carbon dioxide which is the main concern of climate scientists that causes lung cancer! It is the carcinogens that are mixed in with the CO2. So Mr. Lemonick’s analogy is fatally flawed right from the start!
In the end Mr. Lemonick’s new book, “Global Weirdness” is a thinly disguised web, which is artfully constructed to disseminate fabrications and outright progressive lies that are written and spun by a died in the wool Socialist. The author’s purpose is not to educate or inform anybody, but rather to hoodwink the general public into believing this progressive nonsense using feint sleight of hand.
What about the well-known fact that many climate monitoring stations which were once recording climatological data from open fields in the middle of green pastures are now actively collecting the same type of data from the middle of parking lots that are paved over with black, solar absorbing asphalt! What about the fact that temperature recordings of Mars also show a marked increase over the years that mirrors the same phenomena that we are experiencing on earth, the so called “human effect”!
Mr. Lemonick is no neutral arbiter of the truth! He is no neutral arbiter on the subject of climate change either, and his editor’s pen is no instrument of impartiality. All I can say is that his latest book “Global Weirdness” belongs somewhere in the science fiction section of the library.
