With all the hot air about so-called global warming over the last several years, a dose of common sense via Realityrites seems to be in order.
A few observations and facts I am aware of;
There is no empirical evidence for the theory (and that is all it is) of man-made global warming. O sure, there are lots of computer models to back up this theory, but no actual evidence. GIGO is what has been shown to be a truism, as far as computer modelling and climate goes. A match definitely not made in heaven.
There are a small number of people who are making a great deal of money from this fabricated and over-hyped theory. You can be fairly sure, this small group does not include the average taxpaying worker.
As somebody once said, “follow the money..”
MSM (Main stream media) have a lot to answer for in their adoration of disaster, both real and imagined. Their uncritical and ongoing promotion of “global warming” has in the view of many undermined their previous credibility considerably.
It is not realistic to measure or even have such a term as a “global temperature”. It is nonsensical and not worthy of consideration. The time of day, of month, of year, of season, of hemisphere, and all the innumerable variables they entail makes it so.
The UN , one of the arbiters of climate change, as global warming is now known as, is a very political organisation, full of Machiavellian intrigue.
I have over the course of recent years conversed with 3 ex-politicians on the subject of global warming.
Not one of them admitted that they believed in it.
One went so far as to say…”it is the greatest con of mankind by mankind in the history of mankind..”
I am not sure it is the greatest, but it is certainly right up there.
Below excerpts and attachments from the blogs of two notable people in the battle for climate sense, Madhav Khandekar and Viv Forbes, one from Canada in the Northern Hemisphere, the other from NZ in the Southern.
Each coming from a different perspective, but with essentially the same message.
Madhav Khandekar is a Canadian climate scientist who was an Expert Reviewer for the United Nations Climate Body’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and its 2007 Climate Change Report.
Madhav states that as at April this year the “Northern winter of 2017/18 may well be the longest, snowiest and coldest in 40 years.”
He called it the winter that “… refuses to go away”.
Europe he states, has experienced “5 significantly colder winters since the new millenium; 2002/03, 2005/06, 2009/10, 2011/12”, and of course the current one, 2017/18
In February 2018, parts of Europe were in the grip of the “beast from the East”, an “outbreak of extreme cold air which swept across Europe from Siberia.” In Siberia itself, an extreme low of -62 degrees was recorded.
Over North America, the winter of 2013/14 was one of the coldest on record. Thousands of flights were cancelled and industry and transport were affected. Canada suffered an estimated 3-5% drop in the economy, or an estimated CAD$25-$30 Billion.
“Finding global warming in Canada and elsewhere is like finding the proverbial “needle in a haystack”. I am sorry to say that there is no global warming anywhere in the world today.”
Another very good contributor to the common sense side of so-called climate change is Viv Forbes, who has long experience in climate issues.
His latest post in July 2018, Watching Weather Waves but Missing Climate Tides, is an excellent summation of the right reality.
Forbes takes issue with the alarmist media, incompetent beauracrats and a self-serving green industry, who “inflate short-term weather events into climate calamity”, for their own selfish ends.
For the past 10,000 years, “Earth has basked in the Holocene Interglacial.”
Today Forbes says, we are in the “Modern Warm Cycle”, which began around 1900, “following the Little Ice Age which bottomed in about 1750.”
Forbes goes on to give more detail on how the tides of climate change come and go;
you can read it here.
He points out that Earth has two natural global thermometers which can reveal trends; these are the advance and retreat of glaciers and the rise and fall of sea levels.
“Glaciologists have drilled and analysed many of today’s glaciers. They have been surprised to discover that, outside of Antarctica and Greenland, no glacial ice older than 4,000 years has been found. For example, the Fremont Glacier in Wyoming half-way towards the Equator is only a few hundred years old.”
“Earth’s natural thermometers are now flashing an amber warning.”
The long-term trends point to growing glaciers and falling sea levels.
Ports may need to be moved. Valuable beachfront properties may require a bit of a hike to get to the sea!
As a quote in Viv’s post states;
“Carbon Dioxide causes global warming like wet roads cause rain”.
“We may still have warm decades or even centuries ahead. But even when there is a heat wave in autumn, the winter still comes.”
Dont dispose of the ski gear just yet..
