Well, Waldo Jaquith has exposed himself as a “changer”. One that has bought into the man-made climate change scam. The “changers” don’t really care that the “science” they believe in is simply scientific “feelings”. I left a comment to Waldo’s post and thought I would share it with those that might miss it on Waldo’s blog. You can see this Waldo’s post here.
Comment to Waldo:
Many of you are probably too young to remember the “overwhelming” majority of scientists back 30 to 40 years ago that said we were headed into another ice age. They shut up after the global temperatures started warming. Then the chicken little “scientists” started the opposite argument. Some were the same that raised the alarm over the ice age. Al Gore seized the opportunity to make millions.
There has been no warming in over a decade. We are, in fact, cooling. Lessons from the ice age teach the alarmists that they are out of time. As the cooling cycle has already begun, people are realizing this is a hoax. A scam. Time is running out to use false science to pass horrific bills that will make them tons of money, so the panic has reached a fevered pitch.
There are exactly ZERO “scientists” that believe man is to blame for climate change that are not making money from saying so.
There are thousands of scientists that are not on the take that say man has no impact on the climate. Or at least no measurable impact.
In my youth, an overwhelming number of scientists claimed cigarettes were actually beneficial to your health. (I wonder how many of these “scientists” are now global warming “scientists.)
Climate scientists are NOT unanimous. Not even close. Waldo left out the most important word that exposes this as a hoax. CONSENSUS. (But he does use the word in connection with evolution.) This word is carefully used in the “global warming” argument. It means that science has nothing to do with this. There is no PROOF, only consensus. Feelings. Emotions. Custom made arguments for emo Democrats.
While I am not a climate scientist, I am a Navy trained Nuclear Engineer and temperature changes and heat transfer calculations are a large part of nuclear science with a lot of parallels and similarities to the whole global warming / climate change theory.
The science I find credible includes arctic core samples that measure the thickness of layers of ice over thousands of years. This proves the normal cycles of warmer and cooler temperatures the earth has experienced in that time. Before Gore even jumped on the bandwagon, we were already cooling again.
The science I do not believe is the alarmists that look at temperature data barely over 100 years and reach the wrong conclusion. If you look at the core samples, the cycles graph to a sine wave. Gore is looking at the rising transition of a sine wave and reaches the wrong conclusion.
By way of example, Gore is looking at the temperature in the desert from 8 AM to noon and calculates an ever increasing temperature that will be hundreds of degrees the next day, ignoring the cooling cycle of the night.
But they go one step further and try to tie the increasing temperature to man-made causes. Specifically, carbon. Why carbon? Because the radical environmentalists want to demonize oil and coal. So this is simply a way to tax it out of favor.
Problem is, CO2 is only a tiny portion of greenhouse gasses, and the man-made portion of this is small. Water vapor comprises 95% of all greenhouse gasses. The climate “scientists” ignore water vapor to make the man-made CO2 sound more significant.
Man-made CO2 accounts for .28% of greenhouse gasses if water vapor is taken into account. That means that 99.72% of greenhouse gasses are natural. Beyond our control.
So, if we reduce man-made CO2 by 10% globally, at a cost of billions of dollars and thousands of jobs, we will reduce man-made CO2 by .03%. This will make absolutely no measurable difference in global temperatures.
However, and here is the cleaver part of the Gore plan, global temperatures will suddenly be seen as declining and Gore will credit Cap and Tax. And the willing press will go along. And ignore the fact that global temperatures have been in decline due to the normal cycle for over a decade.
Consensus is not science. Science is measurable and provable. Anything else is theory. Or worse.
“Changers”, those that believe in man-made climate change, accept hysteria and theory over real science.
When someone tells you that scientific consensus tells us something, what that really means is that they are unable to prove it. Don’t confuse consensus with scientific conclusion. There is no scientific proof that man has anything more than a negligible impact on global temperatures. Short of, perhaps, global nuclear war.
The old saying that everyone complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it will always be true.
