RE: Some Thoughts On Climate Change
I'm not a climate change denier. That's a smear of the alternative position, and it's inaccurate. I'm a climate change non-alarmist. Climate change alarmism is a tool of control, and that's all it is.
At no point inhistory has the climate not been in a state of flux. Several factors influence that, including solar activity. About 3% of co2 in the lower atmosphere can be attributed to humans, and certainly it's possible that we're contributing to climate change. It's not valid to claim that we're the primary drivers of it. That's ridiculous. Volcanic activity, forest fires, solar activity, and orbital shifts all contribute just as much if not more. Furthermore, even with the recent spike in co2, levels are actually far lower than they have been for the majority of Earth's history.
But even if we assume that man is the primary cause of global warming, I'm still not willing to give the government any power to act on that assumption. Frankly, I don't trust the researchers, because their grants come people who are interested in control. I certainly don't trust any mainstream publications to accurately represent information relevant to this issue - for the same reason - that their money comes from foundations serving the interests of the power hungry. Finally, the free market is already moving towards more carbon neutral solutions anyway, without the tyranny of carbon taxes that literally amount to taxing people for breathing.
And here's another thing: if the rich and powerful were so concerned about global warming, why are banks they own still funding coastal real estate development? Why are LA, NY, DC, San Francisco and London still their main bases of operations? They're liars. They pay people to lie. It doesn't matter what a con man says. You have to ignore anything pretending to be "evidence" that has been tainted by their support and consider only evidence that is free of their manipulation and lucre.
Ice caps have stopped shrinking and are growing again. Although poorly reported on, scientists are now observing a "global warming hiatus." Even global warming alarmists only claim that ocean levels are rising 1/8" per year. Even IF we assume that that's true, AND that man is 100% responsible, AND that co2 will continue to increase at current rates (which it won't - technology is reducing that, and we will eventually reach peak consumption as the developing world reaches peak consumption and then begins to decline due to technological advancement), then, AT MOST, sea levels will rise a foot over the next century. Sea levels will not rise a foot over the next century. The assumptions that are required to produce that estimate are completely implausible. But even if it were true, it's hysterical to suggest that that means that islands will disappear en masse, and millions of people will be displaced. It's just silly.
