In a world that works (See–78 ways)…
It’s where you find opportunity and where, hard work and inventiveness will lead to further discoveries of beneficial uses of the earth’s resources.
History shows countless examples of great leadership. Perhaps one of them might be –e.g., a benevolent dictatorship ruled over by a short, skinny black woman with an unimaginably high IQ who can only communicate using sign language. There is another way with proven success: responsible individuals who are free to look to their own self-interest. With Warmingism from Marx to Gore, we are presented with ample evidence about what doesn’t work.
We waste too much time on science-abetted policy — as with the hoax and scare tactics of government-sponsored global warming — when we should first take a step back and see the politics-abetted driver of the matter. Do we really want to hand over control of the economy to Eurocommies, no matter what trumped-up cockamamie rationale is being used to justify a liberal-fascist power grab? (See, Top 20 things politicians need to know about science)
Policy is mostly about the design and implementation of a particular intervention. Politics is about how the decision was made… (Ibid.)
Just 300 years from now the present global warming hiatus that has been going on for nearly 2 decades, may be but a blip on a graph depicting a pause before an abrupt climate change to be known as, ‘Little Ice Age 2’. Throughout Earth’s history there have been many sudden climactic shifts (often credited to volcanic eruptions or meteor strikes). And, all of such shifts have been downward, not upward. Nevertheless, ice is growing around the globe:
An area twice the size of Alaska was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice after the arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in a row. (See Mail Online–Myth of Arctic meltdown)
We do not have perfect explanations for all climate shifts. We do, however, know that such shifts — from ice age conditions to a warmer Earth — are the only reason we are here. The existence of all life is explained by climate change from cold periods to warm periods.
For the last 100,000 years Earth has mostly been locked in an ice age punctuated only briefly by periods of warming such as the interglacial that gave birth to our species. Earth has been locked in ice age conditions for more than 80% of the time over the last one million years. Those are all of the facts. The hiatus won’t last forever –e.g. “when Nigel Calder and I updated our book, The Chilling Stars,” says Henrik Svensmark, “we wrote a little provocatively that, we are advising our friends to enjoy global warming while it lasts.”
To paraphrase David Roberts, you go to work in the climate you have, not the climate you might want. And, this country has to go back to work soon.
