Inconceivably, Eric Peters thinks the powers that be might be lying to us about climate change. From Peters on a guest post at theburningplatform.com:
If the climate really is changing – and we’re the cause of it – then the “wrenching changes” to our lives we’re told are necessary to avert catastrophe might be something we have to accept.chicken-little
Like chemotherapy for cancer.
But what if the diagnosis is wrong?
What if they are lying to us?
Maybe we should get a second opinion – or at least give it a second thought – before we jump on the “climate change” bandwagon.
I personally have a few misgivings based on a few inconvenient truths I’d like to share with you – along with some politically incorrect observations.
First, I will concede that the climate does change. But is this something abnormal? Is man responsible for it changing abnormally?
The fact is atmospheric gas composition and average temperatures have varied wildly over the eons of time the Earth has existed and long before human beings existed. They will vary in the future as well.
Now, the assertion made by the “climate change” crowd (their choice of words is very interesting) is that human activity is causing an unnatural increase in C02 levels and temperatures. But this is an assertion – based on computer models – and cooked data. I’ve looked into it, as opposed to genuflecting before the warbles of non-scientist politicians (this includes, by the way, the non-scientist Bill Nye the “science” guy, who holds no academic degree in any applicable discipline) who have a clear interest in peddling the idea that there is a “crisis” – the sky is falling! – which of course they have the solution to.
For example, the taking of ground temperature readings in paved-over/concrete-covered urban areas (heat sinks) and other such manipulations, which give a distorted (arguably, a deliberately dishonest) impression of average temperatures and whether trends are within normal parameters.
Also, the folding in of greenhouse “emissions” from natural sources such as methane blooms (bubbling up of gasses from the seafloor) with man-made sources such as carbon dioxide coming out of the tailpipes of vehicles.
What about the massive naturally-occurring “emissions” of C02?
The careful putting aside of solar activity as a possible and entirely normal contributory factor (not surprising, given we lack the enforcement ability to impose solar emissions standards on the nuclear furnace that anchors our solar system).
