It seems that I must repeat this from time to time. Now it is because of a bogus “government” report on CLIMATE CHANGE! OH, MY GOD!!! Let me state this as plainly as I can based on a lifetime of study of weather and CLIMATE. The hullabaloo of climate change is a complete HOAX and you can discard all you have read or heard about it. And, for God’s sake, do not let it worry you!
Of course, if you see something with the name “government” or “scientists” on it you are inclined to think that they know more than you do, so they must be correct, right? But here is the TRUTH. The atmosphere, that encircles the earth is so vast that there is NOTHING that man can do to warrant a CHANGE in climate. Nature will take care of that with no help from man. If a volcano big enough erupts, THAT can change the climate.
Is the air filthy in other countries like China? Yes. Are rivers and lakes filthy and polluted in other parts of the globe? Yes. Is the air in Los Angeles often so full of carbon-monoxide it is hard to breathe? Yes. (In LA’s case it is because they area in a valley which traps the air unless the wind blows from the east.) But those are localized conditions and they are NOT climate.
There are cycles in the climate. Chop down any tree and look at the rings. You can see dry years and wet years because the tree adds a layer each year. In the early 1900s it was so cold Niagara Falls froze. Once, billions of years ago, America was covered in ice. And once it was so tropical, dinosaurs roamed where Peachtree Street is. Personally, I believe we are going into a 50-year cycle of colder weather. Will there be occasional warm years during that period? Yes, but generally I believe that overall the next 50 years will be colder. (I won’t be here to prove my theory, but it is just as good as the climate change “experts” with their 50-year predictions of gloom and doom.) Would you feel more confident if I gave my theory a “scientific name?” You can say it is based on “Empirical Evidence.” Now, feel better?
There are two things wrong with climate change (used to be global warming, but the globe hasn’t warmed) junk that you hear about. Those predictions come from computer “models.” (A computer model is a program that takes past data and extrapolates it into the future.) The problem with that is that we only have 150 years of reasonable climate data to put in the model and the world has been here for billions of years with the climate changing repeatedly. So, remember this about computer models: “Garbage In, Garbage Out.” And the motivating factor behind all this baloney is- money! People are paid lots of money to make these dire predictions. Don’t you think the money would STOP if they predicted, “Hey, the climates going to be really nice for the next 50 years.”
Remember cow farts and refrigerator gas and the ozone hole and jet vapor trails? All those were going to ruin our climate. Didn’t happen did it? I want you to remember just ONE thing: The atmosphere is so vast that the WORST thing man could do to influence it would be like a pin prick on an elephant. And it is the height of arrogance for any man to think differently.
