- Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
- Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
- Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
Here is the flyer for the event:
I have a college education and an advanced degree but I still could not understand the synopsis of the talk that is highlighted on the bottom of the flyer: “[The talk] looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’”Huh? Are you kidding me? Thoughts now cause global warming to accelerate? You cannot make this stuff up.3) A favorite tactic of global warming advocates is to claim that “the science is settled,” with the implication being if you disagree with their views you are a scientific imbecile. Of course, we have shown hundreds of times over the years that scientists, researchers, realities, and other facts that prove the science is not settled and that if anything, the reality of manmade global warming is becoming more of a myth every day.The Inquistr website recently ran a story in which noted scientists put forth their opinions on why the science is not settled:- Dr. Leslie Woodcock is an emeritus professor of Chemical Engineering and Anayltical Science at the University of Manchester in England. He also a former NASA scientist and has a long list of other scholarly credentials. Here is his take on man made global warming and climate change: “The term ‘climate change’ is meaningless. The Earth’s climate has been changing since time immemorial, that is since the Earth was formed 1,000 million years ago. The theory of ‘man-made climate change’ is an unsubstantiated hypothesis [about] our climate [which says it] has been adversely affected by the burning of fossil fuels in the last 100 years, causing the average temperature on the earth’s surface to increase very slightly but with disastrous environmental consequences. The theory is that the CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel is the ‘greenhouse gas’ causes ‘global warming’ — in fact, water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 time more of it in our atmosphere (around one per cent of the atmosphere) whereas CO2 is only 0.04 per cent. There is no reproducible scientific evidence CO2 has significantly increased in the last 100 years. Anecdotal evidence doesn’t mean anything in science, it’s not significant…”“Even the term ‘global warming’ does not mean anything unless you give it a time scale. The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years, if there are extremes, it’s nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it’s not permanent and it’s not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.”- Dr. James Lovelock was considered almost a founding member of the man made global warming theory back in the day. Despite his once revered position in the global warming movement, he now describes the movement as becoming like “a religion, and religions don’t worry too much about facts” and that “It’s just as silly to be a denier as it is to be a believer. You can’t be certain.”Lovelock has also publicly stated: “… In fact, receding Arctic ice rebounded between 2012 and 2013, growing by 29 percent into an unbroken patch more than half the size of Europe and within 5 percent of what it was 30 years ago, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Last month near the South Pole, a Russian ship carrying scientists and tourists traveled to the bottom of the Earth so passengers might document global warming and shrinking ice caps. But the ship got stuck on ice that was thicker than at any time since records started being kept in 1978.”- Dr. Patrick Moore is a Greenpeace co-founder who has also publicly expressed the opinion that: “There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years… no actual proof, as it is understood in science, actually exists.”The science is not settled, at least according to these three distinguished scientists and experts...along with the dozens of others we have previously discussed in this blog.That will do it for today. More proof that the science is not settled as it relates to man made global warming, more lunacy from advocates on possible causes of mythical global warming, and another huge miss on predicting the impacts of global warming. More tomorrow.
