Here is a composite of the geologic temperature record.
Man’s effects on global temperature would
likely only occur in the last couple hundred years. Looking at the above
graph, this would amount to the part of the graph just coming out of the Little Ice Age, to the
course, if you just look at this short-term part of the record, it would
appear that the earth is heating up very fast. (Just like when people play
with statistics, if you take a very limited perspective of something, you can
easily be mislead.) However, by taking the long-term view of the geologic
temperature record, as in the above graph, it is clear that the current
temperature is not at anything that could be considered a high, nor is it
going up any more than what has happened in the past, any more than has been
natural. So, yes, climate change happens—and is natural. Global warming
happens; global cooling happens—naturally, all the time, just like the
seasons and the weather change all the time.
Now let’s take a look at
the long-term record of the most toxic fumes ever created: your breath—I
mean, carbon dioxide.
In this graph, the current time (now) is at
the left and the past extends towards the right. Do you notice anything about
the concentration of carbon
dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere? Did you notice that we are currently at
an extreme low of carbon dioxide? That’s right. Of course, if you take the
limited perspective of just the very-near short term, it looks like this
concentration is going up very fast and is at an extreme high. But once again,
we find that, when you take the bigger perspective, the increase is not
unusual nor is the concentration at a high; it is actually at an extreme
Did I read Al Gore’s book? Did I see his movie An Inconvenient
Truth? Yes, guilty on both counts. However, just like many other prominent government
figures, he made a few “mistakes” in the accuracy of his information, and in
the perspectives that he was portraying. To find out about these mistakes and
have a Nobel Laureate explain them to you, as well as some bigger picture
issues, check out this documentary: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4860344067427439443.
summary, don’t be a climate change denier: climate change is natural and
normal, just like the weather.
Ok, everybody! Pay your carbon taxes to
me; place your carbon god idols on your mantel; and pray to Al Gore! We will
save you! Also, reduce your carbon emissions: stop driving your car, stop
having children, stop breathing, reduce the population, have more war, kill people! You must buy my
energy-saving light bulbs! By the way, they’re toxic. But I’m calling them
“green,” so you should feel good about buying my toxic light-bulb products.
Don’t worry, new taxes, regulations, and tyrannical bureaucracies are coming
your way—fast! Love the government, it is your Big Brother, I mean your big
Daddy: it wants to protect you for your own good: SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY!!!
Government is the authority; this is not a government of the people, by the
people, for the people. The Constitution does not start out “We the
The Constitution is just a g*$-&@#^^% piece of paper anyway. The
government gives you all of your rights; we are now going to call them
privileges—so that you like us more, and act more subservient to us. Got
