Cli­mate change ar­gu­ment is balder­dash, says writer

The Compass - - OPINION -

I was quite amused the other day to come across the “Turn Back the Tide” pub­lic aware­ness cam­paign. I un­der­stand the po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness re­quire­ment of such cam­paigns and how all gov­ern­ments are forced (one way or another) into pro­duc­ing and prop­a­gat­ing such du­bi­ous ma­te­rial by the global pow­ers that be.

The WMO and the UNEP In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change (IPCC) was shown years ago to be fab­ri­cat­ing sci­en­tific data and cov­er­ing up oth­ers to suit their own agenda. Yet, the pow­ers that be per­sist in this hoax.

My point, sim­ply put, is that the premise that hu­man be­ings are gen­er­at­ing harm­ful (planet/cli­mate threat­en­ing) amounts of carbon diox­ide is sci­en­tif­i­cally ab­surd to say the least. Plants re­quire carbon diox­ide as an­i­mals (and peo­ple) re­quire oxy­gen. No, carbon diox­ide, for the planet in gen­eral, is not a toxic or even nox­ious sub­stance as some or­ga­ni­za­tions say. It is, in fact, a vi­tal nu­tri­ent to pho­to­syn­the­siz­ing or­gan­isms (ALL plants and even some bac­te­ria). Th­ese or­gan­isms are re­spon­si­ble for sus­tain­ing ALL life on earth.

Ac­cord­ing to ice core sam­ples from tens of thou­sands of years ago carbon diox­ide lev­els have been much higher in the past than they are right now. Al Gore (An In­con­ve­nient Truth) was ei­ther ig­no­rant of the real facts or just plain ly­ing.

Cli­mate change has al­ways been a cycli­cal fact of life on this planet. So­lar out­put determines cli­mate (change or steady state) on this planet, not carbon diox­ide or any other so called “green­house gas.” The sun is the ul­ti­mate source of all en­ergy re­ceived by planet Earth and it is for­ever in flux.

As re­sent as the 1970s sci­en­tists were warn­ing us of the im­mi­nent ice-age com­ing upon us. Now, in the be­gin­ning of the twenty first cen­tury sci­en­tists are warn­ing us of the dire con­se­quences of the op­po­site cir­cum­stances. What balder­dash! Sci­ence also is in con­stant flux. Be­fore long, I sus­pect, they’ll be warn­ing of the per­ils of another com­ing ice-age. — Boyd French writes from Bay Roberts, and de­scribes him­self as a con­sci­en­tious ob­jec­tor and con­cerned cit­i­zen.
