Western governments call on academia’s climatologists to halt climate change and stop seas from rising. Big job!
Once viewed as simple school teachers, climatologists with their computers and binders of temperatures from around the world have been given the job of proving government must be given power over the people to mitigate the combined effects of humanity, evil business, out-of-control capitalism and excesses of modernity that together are producing too much CO2. They believe this excess CO2 is more than nature can handle and that it causes global warming. Leftists, liberals and environmentalists agree and believe we must be very concerned; and, we all should be fearful enough of the consequences of global warming to do whatever we can to stop it.
Western climatologists in particular have studied slices of trees that have been gathered from remote areas. They count rings and concoct sacred formulas to learn the secret truths embedded within the rings. As the Western climatologists attempt to divine miracles within the rings of trees, environmentalists blame business for cutting down trees, liberals moan about us humans using too many trees and Leftists want government to stop us.
Perhaps even worse than global warming, nothing terrifies liberal fascists more than people who are free to make choices for themselves. The real miracle is that enterprising individuals working in a dynamic capitalistic economy, also live in the beauty of the real world and have been able to cut through all of the superstition, ignorance and government fearmongering.
Using less wood is logically inconsistent with reducing C02 emissions on this planet. So the solution is to grow more trees and use more wood. And the public is being told, unfortunately, the opposite by many people — and they’re getting the impression that by using less wood we can save the trees. 80% of all the timber produced in the United States, for example, is from private land. Why is that? Because private landowners can make money growing trees, because people want wood. If those private landowners had no market for wood, they’d clear the forest away and grow something else that they could make money from instead. When you go into a lumber yard, you’re given the impression that by buying wood you’re causing the forest to be lost, when in fact what you’re doing is sending a signal into the market to plant more trees. That’s why there’s just about the same area of forest in the United States today as there was a hundred years ago. And that’s why there’s no more land being used for agriculture today than there was a hundred years ago. It’s because of high-yield agriculture. ~Patrick Moore (cofounder of Greenpeace, renegade environmentalist and global warming heretic)
Kneeling 0n the bank of an ancient river and peering into the mud, there isn’t much there in the waters and mummified remains of petrified herbs upon which the modern-day sorcerers of global warming can work their magic. Rather, it is what they cannot see and what they feel from head to toe that provides most of the information that they know will ultimately guide us to the truth, their truth.
The ancient sacred rituals have given way to a more scientific interpretation of information, which is no less sacred. Like any ritual art the methods of transforming disturbances into predictions must be nurtured and protected from skeptics and unbelievers.
The ritual is not complete until computers complete their job of churning the last bit of data. Only then can the sorcerers share the precious results of all these machinations with their elders and peers; and, then they must disseminate their precious forecasts of the future to the teachers and a waiting public along with the explanations that must be concocted to help us understand what computers are telling us.
Legend days are over. This is a new science that cannot be ignored. And, so we must pay tribute to them for their knowledge and new roll in society through ever higher taxes and other burdens they say we must assume for the benefit of future generations. This is truth at its most profound level because most of what the witchdoctors of doom have predicted cannot actually be observed in nature by the old science.
So far, only Westerners have mastery over the skills that are required to accurately foretell the climate. Only climatologists have felt the immensity of impending doom in their blood: the demise of species and indigenous races, the record heat, boiling waters, rising seas, extreme storms, relentless snow then no snow and no more rain, followed by searing drought, starvation, death. We are responsible for all of the bad that has not yet happened and someone must warn the congregation of the coming disaster and stop the evildoers.
Is climatology the product of modern-day technology or insanity? Are the sorcerers of global warming spreading hidden truths about climate change and saving humanity from itself or are they new-age charlatans and doom-makers engaged only on serving their own interests and needs?
On a positive note, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, using twin satellites orbiting Earth in tandem to measure changes in Earth’s gravity, figured out that the seas are not actually rising as fast as global warming alarmists predicted. The rate of sea level rise slowed by about 20%, or about 1 millimeter per year, according to a study published in Science.
“In many other respects, the ill effects of warming are overblown,” says Prof. Lindzen. “Sea levels, for example, have been increasing since the end of the last ice age. When you look at recent centuries in perspective, ignoring short-term fluctuations, the rate of sea-level rise has been relatively uniform (less than a couple of millimeters a year). There’s even some evidence that the rate was higher in the first half of the twentieth century than in the second half.”
According to old school statisticians McShane and Wyner on the reliability of least squares reconstructions of proxy-based historical temperatures, “the long flat handle of the hockey stick [referring to a graph adopted by the UN-IPCC purporting to be an accurate record of Earth’s global mean temperature over the last 1000 years] is best understood to be a feature of regression and less a reflection of our knowledge of the truth.” But, the new science of global warming does not want to hear that truth.
If we do nothing to stop this insanity, science will rightly be regarded as just another racket. ~Richard S. Lindzen
