Let’s not wait for the next ice age to face the facts. “What happens if global temperatures actually decline,” asks David Archibald (Chairman Mao’s Time Bomb), “a possibility that must be considered, given the lack of solar activity and the mercury’s refusal to rise?”
The government climate scientists had fantastic successes creating something from nothing when they used the idea of a greenhouse as a metaphor for global warming caused by humanity’s release of CO2. They looked on with glee as their idea turned into two ideas: an allegory about capitalism destroying the Earth and an analogy about all life on Earth as like a dog in a car with the windows rolled up. What we’ve learned is that when it comes to metaphor-making, the 2nd law of thermodynamics violates Leftist thinking.
Shall we continue to fear global warming alarmism when we know it does not exist. What will our future look like if a cooler world, “in response to lower solar activity,” is as Archibald observes, more than just a possibility?
China is one of the few countries taking food security seriously. Official policy is that the grain necessary to keep China’s population fed should be grown within its borders. Beijing maintains a grain reserve of 200 million to 300 million tonnes, although its exact size is a state secret… China can feed itself at the moment. But that achievement has to be looked at in the context that the world is currently enjoying the most benign conditions for agriculture for over 800 years. ~David Archibald, Chairman Mao’s Time Bomb
Is it politically incorrect to notice that AGW is Left vs. right science? “[Frank] Furedi was asked to compare current Western censorship with that of Communist-era Hungary, where he spent his childhood,” says Tony Thomas (‘Free Speech and the Fight to Save It,’ Quadrant Online). “Stalinist censorship was easier to deal with, he replied, because everyone knew the score and could see through the official lies.”
Never was there a dogma more calculated to foster indolence,
and to blunt the keen edge of curiosity. ~Charles Lyell,
