There is nothing new about “Climate Change” (formerly known as Global Warming). The climate is always changing and has always changed. The only difference now is that there is a lot of money to be made from the Doom Forecasts of so-called “scientists” who are predicting that the human race will end in 50 or 60 (or 70.80, take your pick) years because you drive a SUV or allow cows to fart or some other nonsense. Science, by definition, is some process that can be reproduced. And the weather (or climate) cannot with any accuracy be reproduced “on demand.”
But there are huge government grants to be claimed by these phony scientists so they will keep the money pouring in as long as they can prolong the “study” of these destructive changes in climate.
The public tends to believe anything that has a government ring to it. And that is the problem. Fifty year predictions are easy to make because few people will be around to remember them. And the attention span, or memory, of the public is short. Take a look at these predictions.
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen Norway.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the Gulf Stream still very warm.
Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.
Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.
Oh…sorry. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 96 years ago. This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle farts.
Well, what do you know? Here it is 96 years later and New York and Miami and California are still above water. The Climate Change politicians sell fear. Next time you see Al Gore proselytizing loudly on why you did nothing for future generations remember the USA leads the world already in pollution controls and clean up efforts. The rest of the world needs to clean up their mess….and the Paris accords were not getting anyone to act…they just applied for funds and did nothing. A better method needs to be developed to encourage others to wipe their own rears over time versus the USA being the toilet paper.
