There are a lot of misconceptions and misnomers being thrown around by “Climate Change Alarmists.”
Climate Change Alarmists are individuals who look at you as if you have three heads if you dare to question any of their Climate Change claims or appeals.
Climate Change Alarmists call people other people who don’t swallow their story hook, line and sinker, “Climate Change Deniers.”
Ok…, let’s be clear…, NOBODY believes the climate doesn’t change or isn’t changing.
Some people just believe the Earth’s climate changes naturally, and on its own, just like it is scientifically documented to have done throughout the world’s history, whether people were around or not.
“Climate Change Deniers” are also typically skeptical of policies directed at combating Climate Change because they don’t believe there is anything people can really do to effect the climate one way or the other.
My question to the Climate Change Alarmists would be, “Did you actually expect the Earth’s climate to NOT change from time to time? Did you really expect the Earth’s climate to remain exactly the same forever?
That seems to be where these Climate Change Alarmists are coming from.
The Earth has had periods of “Global Warming,” “Global Cooling,” and even “Ice Ages” in the past when people either weren’t even around, or people did not burn fossil fuels. How does the Climate Change community explain this? How did the climate change back then without the help of the “evil” human polluters?
Let’s look at a recent article by Harry Pettit, of News.com, as a typical example of a Climate Change Alarmist spinning another fantasy climate change story and scenario that just doesn’t make any sense.
According to Mr. Pettit, “An Antarctic ‘time bomb’ is waiting to go off.”
He says that, “Earth’s sea levels should be nine meters higher than they are,” and that “dramatic melting in Antarctica may soon plug the gap.”
That’s over 29 feet higher for us unscientific and/or American Neanderthals.
So…, the oceans should be 29 feet higher than they are?
That’s like a three story building you know?
Do you understand how stupid that sounds?
“They say global temperatures today are the same as they were 115,000 years ago, a time when modern humans were only just beginning to leave Africa, he continues.”
Oh really? How could that be? What types of cars were people driving back then? They must have had a lot of factories pumping out plenty of emissions in old Sub-Saharan Africa, huh?
Again, do you understand how stupid that sounds?
“Research shows during this time period, ‘scorching’ ocean temperatures caused a catastrophic global ice melt. As a result, sea levels were six to nine meters higher than they are today. But if modern ocean temperatures are the same as they were during that period, it means our planet is missing a devastating sea rise.”
I feel like I’m dumber for just having read that. Please take a moment to reread the previous paragraph in order to properly appreciate all of the contradictions and false assumptions made here.
And again, do you understand how stupid that sounds?
“If oceans were to rise by just 1.8 meters (about 6 feet), large swathes of coastal cities would find themselves underwater, turning streets into canals and completely submerging some buildings,” and that, “There’s no way to get tens of meters of sea level rise without getting tens of meters of sea level rise from Antarctica,” said Dr. Rob DeConto, an Antarctic expert at the University of Massachusetts in the U.S.
“In the next century, ice loss would get even worse,” he added.
Even if you throw all common sense out the window and take all of these doomsday predictions at face value, do these people really think that having America return to the Middle Ages would make any difference?
If we all stopped driving cars, stopped transporting things with trucks, stopped flying in commercial jets and stopped using fossil fuels for electric power tomorrow, would that avert all of this supposed ice melting?
If you really think so, I’ve got this bridge I’m looking to sell…, cheap.
“The Sun” newspaper, in the United Kingdom, actually has a “sea level doomsday simulator” on its website if you’d like to know whether your home would be wiped out by rising oceans!
Well isn’t that special.
