Global Warming Is Probably A Farce

I believe it is just another conspiracy to keep people in jobs. Everything is exaggerated for the sake of sensation and organizations like Green Peace cash in on it by thriving on the people’s fears.frustrated

We only have data for less than 200 years and now some people want to create panic by applying a few years worth of data to the entire history of Earth. It’s like as if you can paint the whole picture by picking up one tiny piece of a giant jigsaw puzzle.doh

Yes, it is a fact that the planet’s mean temperature is rising by about one tenth of a degree Centigrade per century but that is to be expected. After all, we are coming out of an ice age. It is also true that places with a higher population density had a steeper increase in temperature than the norm but other areas have gone colder. We don’t even know if the rate of warming is increasing or decreasing.dunno

Now they concentrate on those places that are getting warmer while ignoring the places going colder and bombard us with selective statistics. By using a different set of statistics it will be just as easy to proof the Earth is in fact cooling down. For all we know, we may be having cycles, spanning several centuries, of rising and dropping temperatures.hmmm

Okay, so the mean temperature of Earth is rising very slowly but we don’t know how much of that is caused by man. Astronomers say that every planet in our solar system is warming up to the same degree. So, are we responsible for that too; or do we blame the Martians and the Saturnians for that? There is just is not enough data to prove anything. confused

Our few factories and car exhausts are farting against thunder when compared to nature’s own pollution. A single volcano eruption can cause more heat, pollution and environmental damage in one week than all of mankind can do in years. Yet, Mother Earth coped with it every time. professor

Yes, I agree, we should be responsible and we should prevent pollution wherever we can but there is no reason to inflate figures or to brainwash us with selected data to proof something that is not certain at all.doh

I am all for green technologies...and although I have not investigated their data...I believe those scientists are on to something...

Pollution kills...

If we can reverse the damage done...good...

Automation is the reason why so many do not have jobs...and that silly man Trump making a deal regarding coal jobs...it is outdated, dangerous and expensive in comparison to natural gas or green technologies...but even fracking causes damage...earth quakes and polluted water...

If we go green...perhaps we will find out if our Earth's temp is increasing due to humans or is a natural phenomenon...


Cheers

Hi Lou
I'm all for going green; I acknowledged that at the end of my blog but they are exaggerating things. there is absolutely no evidence that mankind is responsible for that minute rise in temperature.

I think we should be more concerned about more direct pollution like toxic wastes dumped or spilled in our oceans and rivers.

There's plenty of reason to go green especially with automation and AI promising to return manufacturing. The dark satanic mills may return because they need no humans to work in them, nevertheless there's are downsides to living next to a dark satanic mill and it is important for them to be not so dark and satanic. Climate change or not an abundant supply of clean energy is nothing to be sniffed at and it's even better when you can generate this energy from your own home as per the promise.

One thing about humans is their greed...many human rights issues surrounding those in charge...at least with going green...our streams and rivers would be safer...

Anything to adapt to a better way of living without pollutants is king...wine

Hi Chesney,
It seems that the topic is going to illicit some interesting comments. however, my problem is not with going green. That is something we should work on day and night.

I'm not disputing that we cause too much pollution. I have a problem with the panic they create with insufficient data. My point is that Global Warming is exaggerated.
cheers
Catfoot
Hi Lou,
You seem to misunderstand me as well. My beef is not with pollution. I agree that we must work very hard on that.

What I'm saying that the concept of Global Warming is driven out of context. The planet's mean temperature is rising by about one degree Centigrade per millennium which have probably been going on since the last ice age and and some stage may reverse to take us back into another ice age. I just don't believe we are causing it and that we have no control over this process. It is in all probability a natural cycle that has occurred many times before and will continue to do so in future.

Catfoot
And note that this is not just happening on Earth but at every other planet in our solar system.

Cat

Not disputing your thoughts...

I do understand your position...

What takes a nation to rally for change regarding such notions as climate change...hype or not...it needs to happen...

I do not want to see those scientists right if I have to live in such dismal conditions...so rather go green...dunno

Not to mention the next generation...we need to think of their future too...

Hi Lou,
Yes, climatic change is something else we should look at. It appears that we have more extremes and wider swings but that too MAY be natural cycles. Once again we do not have sufficient data to determine man's effect on that. Such pity that our ancestors did not have the instruments to leave us with useful data. At least we are able to do that.

Incidentally, I do believe that the planet belong to our descendants and that we're just borrowing it from them.

Not gonna bore you guys with the details here on what I do to minimise my waste around the house and outside the house. Try aiming for the 'zero waste' thingy but find it too hard but I'll keep trying.

Also, I'm in the midst of looking for a metal straw coz we really need to cut down on the usage of plastic straws. blues

I'm just doing my small part and along the way trying to convince my kids to do the same too....
Catfoot
Hi Mimi
That is great. though I'm not sure if metal straws is going to be the answer. Too much pollution and heat to produce. Maybe we should look at thin bamboo or other grass straws. They'd be reusable if we disinfect them with carbolic acid between uses... Eisch!!! More chemicals. No cancel that it won't work.laugh

Does Art have a brother...lol...laugh

I do my part as well...funny I have more recyclables than trash...all for a good cause...we do what we can...glad the automotive industry is hearing our concerns and green technology is being seriously considered...even in Canada...

I see warmer countries marketing their energy to places like us...in the future...wine
Catfoot
Lou,
South-Africa, i think, is behind the rest of the world in recycling. I get the impression that only stuff with a quick cash value, like metals, glass, some plastics and paper etc, is being recycled properly.

Have you noticed that I changed my tack. Something I learned from my grandfather. If you can't beat them, join them.laugh

No need to change teams...you put it out there and is being debated...

Neil De Grasse is a favorite of mine...explains alot of what is happening regarding climate change...

If I have time I will post his opinion...

Good topic and nice to see we can be civil...unlike the forums...lol...laugh

Art has 2 younger brothers but he wouldn't wish on his worst enemy, anybody who wants to get to know his brothers! laugh

However, he did mention that one of them has a really good heart...

I completely agree with you, Catfoot. cheers

I really like and enjoy reading your blogs. cheers

97% of climate experts (scientists) agree humans are responsible for global warming. I guess we have to agree science works and is a valid form of information or not. I for one won't be relying on armchair conspiracy theorists to have a greater understanding or a better insight into the issue than those trained in the field.
Catfoot
Hi Lou,
The thing is, nobody is debating my point which is Global Warming being a farce. Instead I get pollution, climatic changes, recycling and what else. No, I have never steered my blogs. I rather follow them. but i would like to hear what people think about my theory of global warming.laugh

Global climate change - how's that rain of yours coming along, Cat? Plenty of it? Water reservoirs filling up nicely?
Elegsabiff
I do get irritated when global climate change and pollution are linked as cause and effect. Pollution is a real problem, man-made and to be solved by governments. Any one of us just needs to put all our garbage into, saying, the bedroom, for one month, to see how much we generate.

Global climate change has been happening from the start of the universe and the planet, but we aren't helping ourselves as we head into difficult times, filling the air and the water and the earth with our crap.

Thank you Maya,

Hiya Catwave

Regarding you blog topic...YES..I also believe it's becoming a joke!!

As far as I am concerned...it's all FEARMONGERING!devil

I also agree with some of the comments that we should be looking after our environment and reduce pollution.

As for metal straws.??wow yes...straws are normally made of straw or other natural material.
Mimi..roll eyes laugh

Hi TR
Scientists are not in agreement about this at all. They are divided and the point is still heavily debated; the reason for that being the lack of reliable data. We don't even know what the mean temperatures were 400 years ago never mind 4000 years ago.

And then scientist have a tendency to agree with their paymasters to get more money for their research. They will prove whatever they are required to prove by presenting carefully selected correct but incomplete data. When a small, recently acquired, sample of data, is applied to the history of the planet which spans billions of years, I don't call it science. It is straightforward guess work.

I may be sitting in an armchair but I can analyze data (it was part of my job for a long time) and I know what it can be applied to or not.

But your opinion is noted and appreciated. thumbs up After all, the first two words of my blog is 'I believe', which make it opinion just like yours.grin
cheers

Hi biff
We had a bit of rain on Sunday, but rain here is of little help. We have tight water restrictions in place but that is nothing new. I first ran across it more than fifty years ago when I was still in school. South-Africa is a water-poor country and it has always been. The uncontrolled influx from our neighboring states is not helping either when you don't have enough water for your own residents.

Hi Daniela,
I really believe it is just a scheme to keep a few people in highly paid jobs.doh

Catfoot
Oh, Biff,
I forgot to say

I agree with you that Global Warming, Climatic Changes and Pollution is not related or inter-linked. As you said the latter is man-made and the other two are natural phenomena not linked to each other.

"I believe it is just another conspiracy to keep people in jobs"

If that were true, then a certain country would not have pulled out of the Paris Agreement citing that it would help its businesses and workers.

If there more jobs available as a result of going green, then it would be good for businesses and worker.


Mimi, the best way of not using plastic straws is not using straws. There is absolutely no need to have them to drink a drink. Somehow I manage to get through a good few drinks on a night out without the need of drinking them through a straw cool
Catfoot
Hi Molly,
The Paris Agreement deals with greenhouse gas emissions and is not related to the issue of global warming. Remember this is not local to our planet but endemic to our whole solar system. All the planets are warming up to the same degree.

You may find it interesting that lobbyist are paid millions of dollars (in the same country that intends to withdraw from the Paris agreement) to get even more dollars from congress to to keep these fat cats int their globally heated positions.

We must not confuse the issue. This is not related to pollution or climatic changes on the planet. These people are withholding important information. Like for an instance, they don't tell us that this happening on all the planets in our solar system because that will punch big holes in their theory.
hug
mollybaby
But greenhouse gasses are directly related to global warning
mollybaby
Warming even laugh
Catfoot
Molly,
Are you telling me that our greenhouse gasses are warming up the other planets as well. Global warming is not local to our planet.

And we are talking about a tenth of a degree per century. We don't know if the rate of warming is increasing or decreasing. there is just not enough data available to determine mans part in it.

Was it not about the same thing happening on the other planets I may have been less dubious.
hug
TokyoRogue


Cat, can you point me toward any peer reviewed data, study or papers that show the above statement to be true? I can't find any. I have found commentary or opinion that a few planets have increased in temperature, but it is suggested these planets increase in temperatures are due to local factors. I can't find any peer reviewed information supporting "all planets are warming to the same degree".

Thanks
Catfoot
mollybaby
Cat, there are articles both claiming and refuting it, and always will be.

However, the vast majority of scientists believe that man is aiding the speed of global warming.
And if this is true, or even if there is a chance of it, then man has to do what it can to reduce it .
MimiArt7348
Molly, I normally drink hot beverages and that do not require a straw.

My son drinks iced drinks and I need to get him that metal straw. Have been telling him a lot about this change lately so that he'd get used to the idea.
mollybaby
Mimi, why can't he drink it out of a glass like the rest of us?
Catfoot
Hi TR
I ran across it a day or three ago. I'll look around and bring it on. It may take a while though. I first came across it in a documentary series called 'A Traveler's Guide to The Planets'. It was said in one of the later episodes on Jupiter, Neptune or Uranus. You may want to look at it. but in the meantime I'l locate my source and post it in due course.
cheers
Catfoot
hi Molly,
that's the whole thing. nobody can prove anything. We just don't have enough data on it.

and yes, We must tidy up our planet. We've been abusing it for too long. I never disputed it.

All I said is that they're exaggerating global heating and that the cannot prove that man has anything to do with it.
hug
mollybaby
I think people inethe countries which are experiencing climate change the worst aren't really interested in waiting for definitive proof, which some will still disagree with.
They need action now.
MimiArt7348
I've never tried asking him to do that, to be honest, Molly.

Maybe it's high time I should wink to wean him off straws! laugh
