Climate Change Hysteria just Keeps Getting Worse while the Causes of Questionable Global Warming Remain just as Uncertain and Unproven as they Always Have Been!on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Why Get Hysterical over Climate Change when the Causes of
Questionable Global Warming are still Uncertain and Unproven?
By Scott Rohter, September 2012
“Climate change hysteria is affecting the whole world and changing the way we look at the world,
but the causes for global warming if global warming even exists are still uncertain and proven.” – Scott Rohter
Science writer Michael Lemonick in his new book entitled “Global Weirdness” compares climate change to lung cancer. He claims that the media and the political browbeating we are being subjected to by journalists and by a small but vociferous group of political activists back in Washington D.C. is actually for our own good. It is like the Surgeon General’s warning on the back of a package of cigarettes he says so we should all pay attention to it and take heed… Well I don’t think so. These pseudo scientists seem hell-bent on trying to brainwash the rest of the world into accepting some kind of a carbon trading scheme. Selling carbon credits will no doubt make many of them rich, but it will not change one thing about the earth’s climate and there is no genuine scientific consensus about whether there actually is, or there is not an increase in the average global temperature. Even if there is a slight but noticeable increase in the yearly average temperature of our planet there is no evidence that it is caused by human activity. We don’t really know yet whether this curious phenomena we are witnessing is the result of human activity or the result of something else.
There is even less consensus on whether the phenomena scientists seem to think we are experiencing is anthropogenic in nature or whether it is the result of something much bigger than we are, namely the Sun! That big solar furnace in the sky doesn’t have a thermostat, but all of the progressive activists are in such a mad rush to convince 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 cash in on all of their business investments in companies that sell carbon credits. They are trying very hard to sell us on the idea of carbon credits and alternative sources of energy just so that they can line their pockets!
What anyone with even a pea sized brain knows is this: There is a world-wide political effort going on 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 is far more apparent than any conclusions about whether the earth is really warming or not, or what is actually causing it if it is.The Indonesian volcano Krakatoa spewed out 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 so it is reasonable to assume that it will also take a while for the risks related to global warming and all of the warnings regarding global warming to be taken seriously as well. But wait a minute! Not so fast Mr. Lemonick. Your name just happens to rhyme with demonic and you are making some pretty crazy comparisons in your book which is like mixing apples and oranges.
The Surgeon General’s warning on the back 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. Plants love it. The earth’s atmosphere actually absorbs carbon dioxide… and for that matter our lungs actually produce the stuff.
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 with the carbon dioxide that humans are putting into the air. Likewise carbon dioxide which is the main concern of climate scientists doesn’t cause lung cancer. It is the carcinogens that are mixed in with the CO2 that causes lung cancer. Mr. Lemonick’s analogy is flawed right from the start.
Mr. Lemonick’s book is a thinly disguised and artfully constructed progressive lie. It is a web that is spun by a died in the wool Socialist. The author’s purpose is not to educate or inform anybody, but rather to confound and confuse the general public into believing this progressive nonsense about global warming. The only thing man made about climate change are the progressive lies being told about it.
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 a parking lot that is 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 and he is no authority on the subject of climate change either. 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.
