Glaciers gone? Not so fast…
About 8000 before the combustion engine and wide-spread population growth, thus proving that the climate will always change and there is nothing we can do about it.
“Beginning around 8,000 years ago, precipitation levels in South America, particularly in the tropics, became unreliable. Pre-Columbian populations suffered as a result. Archaeologists unearthed evidence that improved agricultural practices allowed populations to adapt beginning around 6,000 years ago.”
There is simply no evidence that mankind is changing the long-term climate of the Earth. At the same time left-wing screechers in the media have been out in force over some bogus UN report.
Apparently this fraud (neither a climatologist nor a scientist) is now taking to the airwaves on left-wing adult oriented shows and using copious amounts of profanity. One very good general rule: when someone is trying to win an argument this way they are both desperate and not particularly intelligent.
Nobel committee embarrasses itself again. You would think they would have learned their lesson after Al Gore and Barack “Drone” Obama.
I usually don’t find myself agreeing with leftist environmentalists, but this guy nails it. He destroys Ms “occasionally functioning cortex” over her absurd “Green New Deal”. The money quote:
“Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.”
There is no way of knowing if this is true, but it leans in the “likely” camp. All that is missing from these odious leftist’s plans is a “Logan’s Run” like future complete with “renewal” at 30 (actually ritual extermination) for all but the elites. If you haven’t seen the movie I suggest it….an underrated and possibly prescient classic.
Oh, “global warming” will now cause a mini ice age. Of course. Any respectable, honest scientist will tell you that the Earth’s climate is dependent on numerous factors and we really have no idea what effect if any CO2 has. Probably the biggest influence is solar output, duh! Thus the medieval warming period and the mini ice age recorded long before industrialization.
Wind power is unreliable. Wind power is insufficient. Wind, solar, hydro and other renewables can never supply nearly all our power needs. Nevertheless, Bud and other virtue signaling companies mislead by making it seem that renewable energy is or will supply much or all of their power needs. Notice words like “will”, “electricity” with no mention of heat, or “theoretical”. Silly, green posturing. Renewable energy should be pursued, but it is not nor will it likely be for centuries the end-all, be-all. Converting to a green energy system will destroy our economy.
Much of the US is in the grips of a record-breaking killer cold-wave, but to hear the far-left tell it, this is just more evidence of Global Warming, err, climate change. This is absurd.
Fact: many climate studies have used faulty or fudged data to show warming.
Fact: not a single climate model trotted out over the last two decades showing a continued warming trend has proven accurate.
Fact: cold kills far more people than heat, but this is probably what the death-cult left wants…fewer people.
Fact: human development on coastlines has led to an increase in losses, not more frequent storms or rising oceans.
Climate change is nothing more than a massive scam run by the left designed to take money from the productive classes. It needs to stop.
Fact: it is unclear what if any impact mankind is having on the Earth’s climate. Despite what left-wing politicians and media tell you there is ample evidence that the Earth is not warming and that if it is, it has nothing to do with development. There are far too any unknowns still and there is no “settled science”, only leftist dogma designed to allow big-government statism to run the global economy and rule the planet. Fortunately, in the developed world people are catching on to the climate change con and are pushing back against their government’s attempts to pass onerous taxes and regulation.
Typical of leftists. Make other bear the brunt. Or even better, have government force people to take action. But individual responsibility? Forget it. This is just like charity, where study after study has shown that people who lean conservative are far more charitable than those on the left, who expect government to do everything.
The discussion of “moral licensing” is fascinating and seems to be very similar to “virtue signaling”. In the mind of the leftist, if I support the right causes and think the right thoughts I can do what I want because I am “morally superior”.
