Hot air

As a conservative, I have always maintained a small carbon footprint out of respect. Now that “global warming” has morphed into the politically correct “climate change,” the Sheeple continue the dance. Climate change is not a new, novel phenomenon. 20,000 years ago, the ice age covered half of North America. And it will happen again. Six-thousand years ago, the planet was much hotter. We disregard the fact that the Earth’s orbit around the sun never changes.

The massive earthquake off Japan on March 11, 2011, changed the globe’s rotation a minor degree but will affect our climate in the future.

For the past 15 years, the so-called “warming” has stabilized and the 2013 hurricane season was mild, as was the summer temp. The Pacific Ocean is cooling. These facts oppose the computer modeling.

There will always be climate change on this globe. It’s a hardened fact. On April 28, 1975, Time Magazine alarmed us with threatening “global cooling.” Never happened.

Ninety-five percent of greenhouse gases occur naturally. The atmosphere is made up of 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, and 1 percent other gases. CO2 is just 0.03-0.04 percent. Naturally occurring greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane and ozone.

When the doomsday predictions are trumpeted, just follow the money. Who did Al Gore sell Current TV to? Can’t be, you say? Really! “I’m, I’m investing in something I believe in. I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuel.” — Nancy Pelosi. Yes, she actually said that.

“It is not possible to state that a certain gas causes a certain percentage of the greenhouse effect because the influence of various gases are not additive.” — Science Daily.

    Educated people know that as new information comes to light or is re-interpreted there will be adjustments to scientific thought. Only those who are rigid and emotionally attached to whatever in science “rings their bells” will deny the scientific method and the changes required with the addition of new data and re-interpretions of the old data. Therefore, they hold onto 35-plus year old beliefs and interpretations.

    There was a day when medical science thought that keeping women in bed for 10 days after childbirth was a good and healthy practice. Today, women are up and about right after childbirth to prevent blood clots and other negative health issues. Perhaps the climate deniers might consider this change in scientific thinking when grasping so tightly to out-dated and re-interpreted beliefs. More information requires adjustments in interpretations. Those who cannot adjust their thinking to accommodate new info are going to want a place in the lifeboats along with the rest of us. Pitiful.
