Climate Alarmism Is No Substitute For Good Information — Dealing With The False Prophets

In 1988, the NY Times declared, “Global warming has begun.” Later, in 1995, this same NY Times predicted, “The majority of East Coast beaches could be gone by 2020.” Still earlier, in 1970, ecologist Kenneth Watt predicted global cooling that would lower the temperature by 20 degrees by 2020.

The false climate prophets like Al Gore and Kenneth Watt remind me of the story of The Blind Men and the Elephant. Six blind men examined an elephant from different points of access. Each developed a false idea of the shape of the elephant.

Another example of a false climate prophet. In 2000, climate scientist David Viner predicted snow was going to become almost extinct in England. What happened? On Feb. 27, 2018, the U.K. Express reported, “London has been hit by a wall of snow in a huge blizzard as the UK is rocked by bone-chilling temperatures, ice and wintry weather from the ‘Beast from the East’. The snow fell lightly at first but quickly picked up speed as forecasters warned the freezing Siberian winds gripping Britain could be the coldest the UK has faced in 27 years.”

For the day of my granddaughter’s wedding, the local weatherman forecast a hot 95 degrees but for the entire day, the outdoor temperature did not rise above the high 70s.

The earth is a very big planet. According to modern estimates, the surface area of the Earth is approximately 510 million square km (5.1 x 108 km2) or 196,900,000 square miles. Determining this was not only a matter of ascertaining Earth’s dimensions but also its proper shape. It is not a perfect sphere and the highest point on earth relative to the center of the earth is not Mount Everest but Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador. Chimborazo is 2,000 meters, 6,561 feet, farther from the center of the Earth than Everest.

Over the years, 1974 to 2017, my business was totally measurement and control systems. In order to accurately record the temperature of a stream of air, we measure and record the temperatures of each square foot. How long would it take to make 196,900,000 measurements at 30 seconds per measurement? One technician could complete the job in about 4,102,083 24-hour days, assuming he takes no time off.

The temperatures (plural) of the earth’s surface are not static. But dynamic, rising over 10 hours and falling over 14 hours each day. You can understand how satellite measurements are by no means definitive.

Any attempt to capture the instantaneous temperatures per square foot would produce an outcome similar to the story of the blind men and the elephant.

Regardless of global warming or global cooling, humans are able to adapt to climate changes. At the moment I write, the local temperature in my North Texas neighborhood is 85 oF at 1130 hours CST. But my neighbor is much cooler at his mountain retreat in Colorado.

There are 60 supervolcanoes around the world. The most dangerous is Yellowstone Park. The eruption of just one supervolcano can disrupt weather in either the northern or the southern hemisphere for several years.

A politician recently said in an interview that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a natural mineral and one component of the life-giving carbon cycle. What is the Carbon Cycle? The carbon cycle is nature’s way of recycling carbon atoms. Carbon is the foundation for all life on Earth.

The proof mankind does not cause climate change rests in the fact there is nothing mankind can do to alter the atmospheric gasses blamed for climate change.

How can you be prepared for climate change? Dress warmly in the winter and use sunscreen in the summer.

  1. well, that was quite an example of someone who has no clue about climate and climate change. Climate is not weather and unsurprisingly, you find you must attack old information.

    “The proof mankind does not cause climate change rests in the fact there is nothing mankind can do to alter the atmospheric gasses blamed for climate change.”

    this is quite the lie. Humans can do quite a bit to alter the gasses blamed for climate change. We have released billions of tons of carbon from fossil fuels into the atmosphere, that took billions of years to sequester. This has been done in the last 150 years or so. When carbon was sequested little by little over billoins of years and the time span to release it was less than 0.000001% of the time took to sequester it, there is going to be a problem.

    all you have is the false claim that since there are volcanoes, humans can’t do anything.

    1. Thank you for reading my blogs, Vel. In order to communicate with a population, it is essential to use common language and terminology. The contemporary false flag is ‘climate alarmism’. The terms have ranged from global cooling to global warming. Specious pieces of evidence of humans destroying your mother earth have been melting glaciers, ozone holes, hurricanes, and even rising tides.

      You misunderstand the point about volcanoes. The eruption of ONE supervolcano will alter life on earth forever. The temperature of the core of the earth compares with the temperature of the photosphere of the sun, ~10,000 degrees F.

      A scientist whom I have known all his life says, “I found it because I believed it was there.”

      You are searching for something that isn’t there, Vel.

      Again, I welcome your comments and I encourage you to continue your search for truth.

      1. Oh John, I do love your attempts to excuse your incompetence and lies. Again, you attack long superseded information.

        Now, funny how the ozone hole has gotten better after humans stopped using the chemicals that destroy ozone. And funny how glaciers are melting, the weather is harder to predict, sea levels are rising, etc, exactly like the theory of climate change predicts.

        Yep, the eruption of one supervolcano will indeed alter life on earth forever. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to stop the problem humans are causing. Again, you try to claim that since there are supervolcanoes, humans should do nothing at all when they can indeed do something to stop the problem we are causing. You fail using your utopia fallacy.

        yes, john, the center of the earth is hot and so is the sun. So what? These facts don’t help your lies.

        So, which scientist says what you quoted? What’s his name? I’ll be happy to ask him if he’s ever said somethign like this. It’s also hilarious that you think this quote is important in some manner. It also doesn’t support your lies.

        I’ve found the truth and you don’t have it as usual, John. You are a wonderful example of how Christians have no problem lying.

      2. Vel, I want you to know important facts like the chemical equator, why there is no horizontal wind at the equator, how the hemispheres are chemically isolated one from the other, and so much more.

        Your criticisms demonstrate there is much you don’t know but probably want to know.

        For example, hurricanes form between the 10 and 20 degrees of latitude on either side of the equator. Why do hurricanes never cross the equator?

        What causes the depletion of ozone over Antarctica?

        Knowledge is power. Knowledge is liberating, too.

        I invite you to ask questions. The atmospheric dynamics of our planet are truly amazing.

      3. ROFL. “chemical equator”? There is no horizontal wind at the equator? What does that even mean? Same with “hemispheres being chemically isolated from each other”? Do explain these, John. This should be quite fun.

        Why do hurricanes not cross over? Simple physics, John. Why does ozone deplete? From chemical interactions.

        You have no knowledge only the typical lies of a conservative Christian. You most amusingly don’t think for yourself at all.

        and most unsurprisingly, you can’t or won’t tell me the name of the supposed scientist you quoted.

        “So, which scientist says what you quoted? What’s his name? I’ll be happy to ask him if he’s ever said somethign like this. It’s also hilarious that you think this quote is important in some manner. It also doesn’t support your lies.”

      5. “Vel, I can answer them but you will reject my answers. I challenge you to seek truth on your own.”

        A common false claim by a theist who has nothing. I will consider your answers. If I find them lacking, I will point that out. To claim that I will blindly reject them is a false claim on your part, John. That does seem to scare you into refusing to display your supposed answers at all, having them considered and not just blindly accepted.

        I have sought truth on my own. I have found it and it says you are wrong. Now what happens to your advice, John? Your god didn’t intervene as promised.

      1. Fail? I am alive and healthy, Vel. I am alive because of God’s intervention in my life.

        When one experiences an epiphany one’s faith in the revelation of a truth remains unshakeable.

        No one talked me into believing in God. He revealed Himself and affirmed the revelation by miraculously healing me.

        Religion, church, etc. were never a part of my life from early childhood until five years into our marriage.

        One revelation of God will forever change your life, your worldview, your perception of reality, Vel.

        By the way, God does not reveal Himself to people who want to know Him, people like you.

        Let me know when it happens to you.

      2. No, John, you are alive because you haven’t died yet. Plenty of people have died, waiting for your god to do something. Funny how it doesn’t, and Christians like you victim blame those that it fails.

        Lots of theists claim an “epiphany”. That doesn’t make a god real.

        Let me guess, John, you were raised in a Christian majority nation by other Christians. So your claim that no one talked you into believing in this god is quite true. You assumed it was real since you trusted the people who told you it was, all without any evidence at all. So, no, I don’t believe that Christianity was entirely new to you.

        So, one revelation from this god will change someone forever. So, those of us who don’t get one are screwed by your god? Well, that matches with the nonsense in the bible where there is no free will, and this god must allow someone to accept it.

        You see, John, if your claim was true, and this god really did want everyone to come to it, then where are all of the “revelations”? There are billions of people who think that your claims are garbage. Per you, just a revelation from this god would fix that, everyone would have their “road to damascus” experience.

        Funny how that doesn’t happen at all.

        I do love this “By the way, God does not reveal Himself to people who want to know Him, people like you.” So your god doesn’t reveal itself to people like me who want to know him. Freudian slip there, John? So how could I possibly let you know when it happens to be since you say it won’t. 😀

      4. Which version of god hasn’t revealed itself to me, John? Christians have dozens if not far more versions, so which am I expecting? And why is it that your god didn’t reveal itself when i was praying for help not losing my faith 40+ years ago? Will you claim “mysterious ways”, John? Now, per your bible, it must be since this god decided it wouldn’t allow me to accept it, destroying the false claims of free will by Christians. or it simply doesn’t exist.

        Christians convert to Islam too. By your claim that makes Allah and Islam as true as your god and your religion.

        “Millions of Muslims have personal encounters with the Living God each year.”

        really, John? “Millions”? Do tell where you got those conversion rates. For you see, there is no reason to believe you at all.
