Would Stopping Global Warming increase world hunger?
President Obama declared in his State of the Union address that “climate change is a fact.” John Kerry, in February said, “In a sense climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” Global Warming Kerry inferred is akin to terrorism, and epidemics, as both men get caught in their own web of contradictions — anti-industrialization and eliminating world hunger.*
Global warming could be a boon to farmers. A recent study* found that rising carbon dioxide concentrations bestow an additional $11.6 trillion in benefits from crop production between now and 2050. The Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change found that while many studies focus on the costs of rising carbon emissions, few studies focused on whether or not more carbon in the atmosphere could be beneficial to society.*
Everyone knows the earth has been warming since the last ice age long before man stumbled upon the industrial revolution and began increasing carbon emissions. In fact, there was a time when the North Pole was covered in a forest of giant redwood-like trees known as Metasequoias and recently camel fossils have been discovered in the Arctic Circle.*
In 2003 with Glaciers retreating and record snow melts in the Alps human and animal artifacts have been exposed dating back to distinct periods encompassing the 15th century, 250 A.D. and 150 B.C. Each verified through analysis using 95% accurate Carbon-14 dating. Archeologists are trying to determine through which Alpine valley Hannibal trekked with 37 Elephants to attack Rome in 218 B.C. (Elephants don’t do ice-covered mountains).*
In 2012 with the North Pole’s dwindling ice cap a 500 year-old village appeared from under the permafrost.*
When times were warmer and wetter, the Sahara Desert was a forest, including grasslands. The remains of ancient fishing villages and fish fossils have been discovered in large depressions in the desert floor. National Geographic reported that scientists have unearthed the remains of an “ancient crocodile that was as long as a city bus.” Obviously, before the desert was a desert. Geologists have detected the source of water in a Sahara oasis is from remnants of ancient underground lakes.*
Then off and on again came cooling
Last month (February 1, 2014) was the 200th anniversary of the last time people ice-skated and an elephant walked across London’s Thames River, a period during the “Little Ice Age.”
Paintings of the era depict a frozen Thames River February 1, 1814
Photo 2/20/2014 shows a frozen Delaware River as George Washington may have walked across
In 1776, some of George Washington’s troops might have walked across the Delaware River to attack the British and the Hessians. (It is speculated that the Delaware River really was frozen over because of the Little Ice Age occurring at the time). Washington outsmarted the British by crossing the river on Christmas Day with 5,400 troops and canon because the British were still waiting for it to freeze solid before crossing.
I point these things out to illustrate how stupid today’s Global Warming Cassandras appear in claiming Climate Change is something new and caused by driving gas guzzlers. This in the face of NASA reports that ice caps on Earth and Mars are melting at the same time (No SUVs that we know of on Mars). With their hysterical exaggerations, Global Warmaholics won’t acknowledge climate change is occurring on other planets, attributed by many scientists to the sun’s solar cycle. SEE: http://science1.nasa.gov/
Many politicians today rely on the widely discredited papers by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) — written by politicians and bureaucrats after they interpret thousands of pages of documentation submitted by scientists. Can you imagine the difficulty in summarizing 2,000 pages of various opinions in a 31-page document, claiming to be objective, and then declaring the issue of Global Warming settled — not unanimously — but by consensus? Especially considering the billions of research dollars at stake. First, whenever someone claims an issue is settled or derived by consensus you immediately know it is not science. For example, you never read Newtonian Gravity, the earth revolves around the sun or the moon causes tides have been derived by consensus. They are facts determined through the long established rational steps of The Scientific Method.
There is nothing simple, nothing innocent, ingenuous, decisive, above board, or conclusive about climate change. It used to be said, “Government taxes everything but the air we breathe.” No longer! Through Climate Change and the selling of Carbon Credits, the United Nations leadership believes it has found a way to tax us for our carbon footprint including the air we breathe.
While Global Warming acolytes think they have found a way to redistribute wealth from capitalistic economies to socialist economies. Most of the 189 nations that signed the Kyoto Treaty expect to receive billions of dollars from trading carbon credits to economically successful countries that allow them to emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere? Get it? You can pollute all you want as long as you pay a “tax” to a government, nation or the United Nations.
Interestingly, the U.S. Dept. of Energy noted, “People exhale carbon dioxide—the average adult’s breath contains about 35,000 to 50,000 ppm of CO2 (100 times higher than outdoor air).” Imagine how much is in a classroom with 40 children. Should we worry?
What’s it all about? Follow the money. Investors Business Daily editorialized (10/23/13) “The world reportedly “invested” $1 billion a day last year to fight global warming. What a waste.” So much more could be accomplished with that money to mitigate real problems. No doubt, the people getting the money disagree. Dr. James Hansen, the father of Global Warming awareness, while a NASA climatologist, failed to report $1.6 million in outside cash income plus expenses and other ethical lapses for which he was reprimanded by NASA’s Chief legal Counsel. *
Forbes reports that Al Gore has received over $100 million from marketing Global Warming. Over $300 billion in carbon credits have been sold as of 2010 due to the Scam. Follow the money!*
What the other side says about Global Warming:
Former French President Jacques Chirac called the Kyoto climate treaty … is about “how we redistribute the world’s wealth.”
John Holdren, President Obama’s science czar: “Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential…”
Ottomar Edenhofer, United Nations IPCC meeting chairman: “But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.
Harry Reid, Democrat, U.S. Senate majority leader: “Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.”
Timothy Wirth, former U.S. Senator: “We have got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
Monika Kopacz, atmospheric scientist: “So yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today’s world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing…”
Paul Watson, Green Peace founder: “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
Emma Brindal, Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”
Jeffry Sachs, Columbia University: “Free market ideology is an anachronism in an era of climate change.”
Paul Erhlich, Stanford University: Giving society a cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
Club of Rome: “The earth has cancer and the cancer is man.”
David Frame, Oxford University: “Rather than seeing [climate] models as describing literal truth, we ought to see them as convenient fictions which try to provide something useful.”
Chris Folland of UK Meteorological Office: “The data don’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations upon the data. We’re basing them upon the climate models.”
David Suzuki, celebrity scientist: “What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there’s a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they’re doing is a criminal act.”
