It’s About the Future

the power of inconvenient truth

Posted by Citizen on July 5, 2007

The results of the studies are published today in the journal Science.Over geological timescales the Earth’s temperature rises and falls, leading to ice ages and periods of relative warmth. Between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago it would have been about 10C in summer and -17C in winter. When temperatures later fell the area was covered in ice and this ice sheet seems surprisingly to have remained in place when temperatures rose again about 130,000 years ago. During this last interglacial period temperatures were 5C warmer than today.

5C warmer than to day. About 130,000 years ago. Let’s see, the cars were gas guzzlers, wait, there were no cars? Well, it must have been that nasty old industrial revolution, wait, there was no industry?

When you listen to the likes of gore and his kind, you get the distinct impression that only man’s existence and activity is causing ‘global warming’, when IN FACT the globe has cooled significantly over the last 130,000 years, or so. Inconvenient, eh?

In case the dots aren’t connecting fast enough for you, let’s note that the earth and the creatures survived the last time it was hotter than it is now, and we will survive again, if that’s where the climate is going.

I believe that algore is repulsively corrupt and dishonest, and I am certain there is a long line of human beings who will be better off if his lunacy isn’t policy.

OK, OK, let’s say you are in algore’s camp. What’s to worry about? The global warming has been warmer, why should it bother you if earth’s climate wants to go there again? Why not, in fact, help it get along thataway?

That’s what I thought..,

    Ummm not sure what point you are making here, but it’s not unusual for climate to change due to other events (for example the change you describe may be due to the Milankovitch cycles). The problem is that the current chaneg can’t be attributed to any known cyclical change. The biggest change that has happened over the last few hundred years has been the large scale clearing of land and the change in atmospheric composition (including a 33% increase in CO2). So… given that we know CO2 and land clearing will affect the climate, sems logical that the current climatic change is due to us. Appealing to the unknown is a very poor argument. Also maybe think about whether or not Human’s were around in large numbers back then, we’ve not been around that long. Homo Sapiens Sapiens is an ice-age animal.
