I feel like I might be beating a dead horse because Global Warming or Global Climate Change seems to be on the outs in terms of credibility and acceptability in the public sphere. However, gullible environmentalists and people who need grants still try to inundate us with the latest catastrophe forecast for the next 100 years. The problem is those in climate science can’t even accurately tell me what’s going to happen a week from now. Just the other day, while I was getting my car fixed, I had a discussion with a man about why it has been so hot lately. He brought up global warming as a possible culprit. We had a little discussion about the hypocrisy of the global warming community (which I will get to in a little bit) and the earth’s changing climate throughout history. We came to the conclusion that it is probably part of the ever changing climate of the planet more than anything man has ever done.
Truth be told, I have never been a believer in global warming due to
the fact God created this Earth and mankind could never do anything to
destroy it even if he wanted to. Plus, think of the materials we have
placed in the atmosphere with little to no effect on the climate. Think
of all the nuclear bombs we have detonated which is well over 2000,
to be exact. How much negative impact have these nuclear bombs had on
the climate? I have failed to find much data, but the research I have
done has shown these 2000 nuclear explosions have had a negligible
effect on the planet’s climate. If the most powerful force man has ever
manufactured can do little long term damage to the earth and its climate
after so many detonations, then how can we believe that we could do
anything that could destroy what God has created?
I like to think of the Earth as a large organism, which is supported
in mainstream scientific thought. I just saw a show at the local
planetarium called The Dynamic Earth echoing this same
sentiment. The Earth is always compensating in one area for deficiencies
in another area. An example of this would be global ice shifts. If the
ice is thin at the Arctic, ice is increased in Antarctica and vice
versa. Even tornadoes and hurricanes are compensatory mechanisms working
in conjunction with pressure systems, heat, and water. This works much
like the endocrine system in the human body where different hormones are
released to maintain a certain homeostasis (normalization) in the body.
Just as body system stasis fluctuates in the body to maintain normal
body functions, the Earth’s systems are also fluctuating to maintain
This should cause us to think for a second because the Earth’s
climate has rarely stayed static throughout recorded human history. Just
in the short time man has kept written records of himself, climate has
always seemed to change. Humans have experienced warm periods, little
ice ages, droughts, wet periods, and any other climate type one can
imagine. What makes us think that this period of time is any different
than any other time in history?
Now that scandals like Climategate have shown us climate scientists’
willingness to fudge data and outright lie for the cause, we also must
bring into question other actions of global warming proponents. If
climate scientists are so convinced of the coming apocalypse, then why
are billions of people still living on the coasts of the oceans without
so much as a concerted effort to start moving people inland? Why did Al
Gore, who is worried about sea level elevation, buy an oceanfront villa?
Why does the famous “hockey stick graph” not account for the Medieval
Warm Period or Little Ice Age? If so concerned about efficient power
sources with little greenhouse emissions, why don’t environmentalists
flock to nuclear power? These are all questions one has to ask because
once we answer them, the truth comes out. Global Warming proponents are
mostly hypocrites who are more interested in money and power than
concerned for the planet’s health.
