I want to talk to you about “Global Warming.” No…wait. The global temperature has only risen one (1) degree in the last sixteen (16) years, so let’s revise that to “Climate Change.” Now, we’re talking.
First, let me ask you some questions: When you watch your local TV weatherperson each evening do you believe that he or she can predict the weather twenty (20) years from now? Ten (10) years from now? A year from now? How about next weekend?
Okay, if you answered “yes” to those questions let me inform you that the weatherperson you put so much confidence in arrived at his or her forecast – from computer models of the atmosphere. The atmosphere extends from the surface up to, roughly, about forty-thousand (40.000) feet from the surface and, of course, around the globe.
Now let me tell you that all of the hyperbole about “Climate Change” comes about from so-called scientists looking at – you guessed it, didn’t you? Computer Models! And from those they tell us how disastrous our climate will be in twenty (20) years, fifty (50) years, or to infinity. Remember the old adage when computers first became wide spread? GIGO. Garbage in, Garbage out.
Let me give you an analogy that will show the arrogance of those Climate Change “forecasters.” Do you think that an elephant could feel a pin prick? That is how the atmosphere would, and does, react to anything that man can or could do.
Are there local climate changes? Sure, Pittsburgh used to be overcast and rainy all the time because of the steel mills. The southwest has endured droughts forever (read a bit about the dust bowl of the 1930s). China and India have air so bad that people have to wear masks to breathe, but that is in CHINA and INDIA. Does Hollywood have polluted air? Sometimes, and you know why? Someone decided to locate LA in a valley where, if the wind blows the right way, the air is trapped and becomes stagnant. That’s topography, people, not CLIMATE. Are there cycles in our climate? Sure there are and they are shown in the rings of trees and in our own observations. Without any input from man, the climate has cycles of approximately a hundred (100) years, fifty (50) years, even monthly cycles. That is how nature works.
So what has brought about all the hoopla about Climate Change? MONEY! Billions of dollars in grants to those who would make the science fit the agenda of the provider of the MONEY. The good thing about REAL, unpolluted science is that it is true whether you believe it or not.
Hitler said, “The masses will believe a big lie more than they will believe a small lie.” His propaganda minister, Goebbels, said, “If you tell the people anything over and over, they will believe it.”
The furor over Climate Change is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.
