Someone asked my opinion on “climate change” so here it is. This goes way back. Some pseudo-scientists in East Anglia, England decided they could make a lot of money if they fudged some data on “global warming.” Why would they do that? Because there was a ton of money for “grants” to study the climate. (About 4 billion dollars.) So they produced a phony “hockey stick” graph that shwed the global temperature rising disastrously in 10 or 20 years.
Enter Al Gore, who lost the election and had lots of time on his hands. He took the phony hockey stick graph and wrote a book (An inconvenient Truth) made a phony movie showing polar bears with no ice and predicted rising seas and Miami, New York, and LA under water in a few years. (That would not be a bad thing, we could well afford to lose those hotbeds of liberals, but it didn’t happen.) Al took his phony movie around the world showing it to paying customers and made millions. (I believe Al’s net worth is now about 200 million bucks. Not bad for a lousy politician and a liar about the weather.) Al flies around in his fuel-burning jet to tell people to reduce their “carbon footprint.”
The problem is—all of this is bullshit. They ALL did it for money. In America we have it so good that activists must invent a “cause” so they can march in the streets against it in nice weather. So we have the global warming nuts marching—but the globe refused to warm up, only rising 1 degree Celsius in the last 10 years. What to do? “Hey, let’s change global warming to climate change.” And they did. Now they can blame hot weather or cold weather on climate change and that covers everything.
Now, some truth. The climate is always changing, and it does it in cycles. You only must cut down a tree and count the rings to see the dry years and the wet years. (This is actually the way real scientists determine past droughts and wet cycles.) The thing about science is that it is always true. Everything else is “theories.” So those who make their money predicting dire climate changes in 50 years just feed false data into computers which spit out these specious theories. Remember this about computers – garbage in, garbage out. And 50 years from now we will all be dead so who’s to know? In the meantime, these “experts” are laughing as they take their grant money to the bank. They can line up behind Al who is making his deposit.
It is the height of arrogance for anyone to think that man could do ANYTHING to change the climate. Mother Nature has that all under control. But that doesn’t stop the activists from marching and shouting and giving us 12 years before the earth explodes…or something. Personally, I think we are going into an approximate 50-year cycle of colder weather. And that is based on my own “empirical” evidence. I’ve lived over 80 years and I know it was colder with more ice and snow when I was a youngster. Will there be anomalies? Sure. There will be the occasional outlier, a warm year as an exception, but over all my theory is that we will have a colder period over the long run.
I could be as wrong as theclimate change idiots. But no one will know it, will they?
