Word to the Wise on Politicized Global Warming Issues

Written by Hans Shreuder (retired Analytical Chemist)

Whilst I am also most sincerely concerned about our environment and detest any and all types of man-made pollution, I can not agree with all the hype about “climate issues” based on the so-called “man-made climate change” meme.

For the wiser among us who genuinely want to hear all sides of the argument, please spend a little of your time to read my reasons below for not going along with the issue that humans have an influence on the earth’s climate via the emissions of carbon dioxide. By the way, as a scientist who has studied the science, I am aware of the compelling evidence that wind turbines, solar PV panels, and battery cars are far worse for the environment than any current means of generating electricity and transport.

Please know that, despite copious quotes to the contrary, there has never actually been one single scientifically acceptable link between levels of the total atmospheric carbon dioxide causing increased atmospheric or terrestrial temperatures or changes in climate; quite the opposite is true: changes in climate drive atmospheric carbon dioxide content.

The human contribution to the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide is a mere 4% at most, as set out by the UN IPCC themselves. The oceans control the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, not the other way around. There is, in fact, no physical path for carbon dioxide to cause any warming of the atmosphere nor is such a path thermodynamically possible and the concept of an atmospheric”greenhouse effect” is not scientifically proven to exist either. For a more in-depth, peer-reviewed, analysis of the science involved, please go to here.

Then there is this recent article to consider from where I quote:

“It’s unfortunate that the people we think of as our “scientists” for global warming are not really scientists at all, but just political spokespersons who have been paid, flattered, noticed, or rewarded in some way to propound global warming nonsense as though it was physics.”

Please also take a look at respected climatologist Professor Tim Ball’s site, from where I quote –

“My latest book, ‘Human Caused Global Warming. The Biggest Deception in History’ is an abbreviated, illustrated, version for those overwhelmed by the science. Its production was triggered by the exploitation of the fact that 80 percent of the population are arts oriented.”

and some of his pertinent quotations:

“There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such trifling investment of facts.” —Mark Twain

“When we allow science to become political then we are lost. We will enter the internet version of the Dark Ages, an era of stifling fears and wild prejudices, transmitted to people who don’t know any better.” —Michael Crichton

“When people learn no tools of judgment and merely follow their hopes, the seeds of political manipulation are sown.” —Stephen Jay Gould

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. —Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta
