Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts?

Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science. We are wasting time, energy and trillions of dollars while creating unnecessary fear and consternation over an issue with no scientific justification. For example, Environment Canada brags about spending $3.7 billion in the last five years dealing with climate change almost all on propaganda trying to defend an indefensible scientific position while at the same time closing weather stations and failing to meet legislated pollution targets.

Now, see? This guy is a scientist, but because his views aren’t politically correct, no one is going to listen.

Maybe for the same reason we believed, 30 years ago, that global cooling was the biggest threat: a matter of faith. “It is a cold fact: the Global Cooling presents humankind with the most important social, political, and adaptive challenge we have had to deal with for ten thousand years. Your stake in the decisions we make concerning it is of ultimate importance; the survival of ourselves, our children, our species,” wrote Lowell Ponte in 1976.

Well, I prefer the warming to the cooling, but we have nothing to do with either. The planet has been going through many cycles since the beginning. How ’bout those vineyards in England way back when? That was during the Middle Ages by the way.

No doubt passive acceptance yields less stress, fewer personal attacks and makes career progress easier. What I have experienced in my personal life during the last years makes me understand why most people choose not to speak out; job security and fear of reprisals. Even in University, where free speech and challenge to prevailing wisdoms are supposedly encouraged, academics remain silent.

Sadly, the more intelligent and informed are usually the quietest who seldom stand up against the “squeaky wheels”.

I think it may be because most people don’t understand the scientific method which Thomas Kuhn so skilfully and briefly set out in his book “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.” A scientist makes certain assumptions and then produces a theory which is only as valid as the assumptions. The theory of Global Warming assumes that CO2 is an atmospheric greenhouse gas and as it increases temperatures rise. It was then theorized that since humans were producing more CO2 than before, the temperature would inevitably rise. The theory was accepted before testing had started, and effectively became a law.

Make a decision, the create the “facts” to support them. Pathetic! “Tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.”

  1. Facts? What are those? (I’m pretending to be a libtard.)

  2. Oh, you know…those pesky little items that tend to crop up every now and then, like…oh….I dunno…grass is green, sky is blue, people don’t cause climate changes…things like that. 🙂

  3. Be careful who you read on this subject. This author in particular has a sketchy past at best.

    There are plenty of dissenting scientists on this subject. Probably 10, maybe 15% of them.

  4. It’s the message, not the messenger, that’s the whole point.

  5. Thanks for this. I lost my copy and I need it for class tomorrow night. We are going to be discussing this and all the materials the teacher gave us are (insert surprise here) from the liberal point of view. Sigh, he should know better, he had me in class last semester.

  7. Good luck, Rosetta. I sure wouldn’t want to argue on the side of this author.

  8. Jayce…it’s not the author…it’s the content and being able to present an argument against the man made nonsense. sigh…

  9. I understand what you’re saying. However, I don’t think there is this conspiracy to keep the “truth” under wraps. That isn’t the way science works.

    And like I said, there are plenty of non-lying scientists out there who think there is no way humans are making a difference in the temperature of our planet. About 10-15% of them.

  10. You know as well as I do that there are those who will do their best to “silence” any dissenting voice.
