inconvenient truths

dung heapThose who KNOW the activities of industrial man causes terrifying global warming find evidence everywhere. Scientists are piling the data in massive heaps. “Irrefutable” is a popular operative phrase.

Ah but, as with so much of our present world, following the money hints at other possibilities. For more than a decade, if a scientist wanted their project funded, that is if they wanted to study ANYTHING while getting paid for it, attaching the words “global warming” to their proposal garnered the cash.

An ornithologist wanting to study the mating habits of the Blue-footed Booby simply had to title his proposal “The Effects of Global Climate Change on the mating habits of the Blue-footed Booby”.

Funding beyond their wildest imaginations was lavished upon them. This happened, and continues to happen to anyone whose pet project can be called “science” by any stretch of the imagination.

Stretching the imagination is rather the opposite of other main pieces of the Global Climate Change model. Thanks to their magical printing presses, there was more than enough money to centralize control of the media into SIX hands… all of whom conveniently insure plenty of publicity for pro-global warming conclusions and NONE for the other side of the discussion.

The third leg of this three-legged stool sample is the consolidated training system called “public education”. You want a job as a teacher or professor? Guess which side of the discussion you have to be on?

That leaves YOU having to look outside The Box to find the full argument.

That, of course, is frightfully easy with today’s Internet. BUT you have to do some actual thinking for yourself … kind-of hard work and not real popular. Or you can run with their mythology and, ?who knows?, you might be right from time to time.

I am going to share a couple of hints with you. Maybe you will be inspired to look a bit further. Heck, you read this far, I’m pretty sure you ain’t buying the bs.

Irrefutable factoid number 1: Our air is made up of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 1% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide. The plants on the earths surface, including all the aquatic plants of the seas, require that carbon dioxide to make up their cells – keeping the carbon side of the atom and releasing the oxygen.

We are supposed to believe that some dramatic increase in CO2 that WE CAUSED is destroying the planet. Maybe. But I sure need some strong medicine to swallow that one whole.

I am going to share a bit written by “a scientist” (so you gotta believe it, eh?).

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

If you’ve read his book you will agree, this is a good summary. PLIMER:

“Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50p light bulbs with £5 light bulbs ….. well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.

I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it!!!!

Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’ – you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past few years and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax……give the world a hug and have a nice day!”
