The next ice age global warming Climate whatever is back in the news. Al Gore. The Pope. The most rabid among Democrats spewing the “denier” epithet like a howling mob storming the Bastille. And, all when a polar mass mocks the madness. So, this is a good time to debunk global warming: “Is the earth’s average temperature worldwide, rising over some as of yet undefined duration that would be “climate” and if so, is the fuel-burning activity of mankind a significant cause?”
Answer: Maybe, maybe not: we have no way whatsoever of knowing. We cannot even define the duration of change in weather patterns over time, that would comprise a “climate” shift. We may be still emerging back to more “normal” from the last ice age. We cannot even state all of the causes for weather, much less isolate them all, control them all in an experiment, and test the effects of burning a tank of gas.
“Experimenting” to prove man-caused global warming is impossible. But, there is a lot of grant money flowing in from the federal government, and where there is cause (grant money) there is an effect (some sort of academic activity). “Experiments” are “conducted” on keyboards, with the “scientists” staring at screens, generating numbers, and going to expensive conferences where chicken is served with white wine.
“Climate.” How persistently over what period of time must a change in average temperature last, before “we” decide that the climate has changed? Think about all of the monkey-business room there is in that question? And, how much of a change in average global temperature must there be, before we can say that it is significant enough to constitute a climate change? How can we test global average temperatures? How reliable is the data collection, given that “climate change” is a false religion cult among the political Left?
All of the above are questions that strike at the statistical validity and reliability of any real-world research; and climate change research is not done on the real world. It’s done on the “models”: those computer statistics programs run by students eager to please their masters and get a degree. They string the “variables” together, chunk in whatever data is the official word, and tell us all they have predicted global warming. Oops: they predicted global cooling into the next ice age first; then, they predicted global warming; now, they just say “climate change” and are mad at the rest of us when we find them ridiculous.
“Variables”: What naturally occurring phenomena churned together to make the weather before human beings came along and messed up their perfect world? Because, to experiment and isolate carbon fuels as the cause or even a cause, you have to identify and “control” all of those first. Only then, can you experiment on that tank of gas, watch the effect, and draw inferences called “cause.” Reality check: they cannot even tells us what all makes up the weather, much less tell us that we are causing the world to warm up. They cannot tell us all of the forces of nature that affect the weather, much less that cause longer duration pattern changes.
Consider this simple, common formula we all learned in high school: amps = volts / resistance. If you build a battery of a specific amperage, and put a known resistance in the way, you can control the voltage. If your house current is 120 volts, you can put resistors in the way and make a power source for your computer that puts out predictable amperage. And, since watts of power = volts x amps, you can “set” the power on your power source so your computer is not always getting blasts of power, followed by nothing. There are online calculators you can use to key in these variables, and produce predictable results. No, it’s not quite that simple, but almost. Because, there are only three variables.
But, start trying to write equations for predicting climate change. How many variables have to go into the mix? That question assumes you can even identify what those forces are. Add faraway variables over which you have no control, and cannot even accurately measure, like solar flare activity. And, what are all of the effects of solar flare activity? See what I mean? Without knowing and controlling the variables, the purported researchers cannot isolate “man” as one of them and measure our activity as a cause of any effect on earth weather patterns. It all may produce the illusion of research: computers, professors, papers, data, and those conferences they all love to attend. Oh, yes, and the grant money. But, they cannot even identify the variables that go into the equation, much less control them to test “human activity.”
Climate change is a hoax, an expression of a political movement designed to grow government. Its proponents are wilfully deluded because of their political membership in the Left. They act like they take climate change seriously only to the degree they buy into this modern manifestation of Marxism. The architects of the Left seized on climate change as a convenient means to attack free market buying and selling, and to tear down America in particular. The anti-human bias of the climate change issue is irresistible to them. The minion masses mindlessly follow their masters’ mantras. So, once the masters proclaim “climate change” as the only official religion, the leftist masses turn against anyone who defies their religion.
Some of them would kill us, if they could get away with it. Weird. Short of murder, they just call us “deplorable.”
Here’s another reality: Except for a very few, no one really takes climate change seriously. The Hollywood actors fly around and collect garages full of vintage automobiles. Al Gore flies private all over the place. Barack and Michelle vacation all over the world, pull along a massive entourage with them, and occupy palaces. Democrats in Congress jet back and forth from coast to coast. A few of the hardcore refuse to own a car, and bike everywhere they go, but who thought Hillary really cared about climate change? What about those leaders, those loudest voices, those who say every election cycle that climate change is a priority? Well, readers here know what I think is the test of the true climate change believer. This test reveals how much anyone thinks our cars are killing us all by heating up the earth, and causing the ice to melt and raise the seas. Put the test before them, and see just how little concerned they are about global warming.
The test: None of them proposes a $5 tax on a gallon of gasoline. Because, if they actually believed that your car was causing climate change and killing us all, they would act like it and punish our use of carbon fuel. They don’t even slow down their own use of modern transportation.
If they truly believed in man-caused global warming, they would try to tax burning carbon fuels out of existence, and right now. They play around with regulatory harassment, but urge us to think that the calamity is upon us. That they exhibit no urgency tells the discerning person all he needs to know about how unserious they are about the climate change they urge the rest of us to buy into.
