Climate Change 'Experts': You should be dead by now
Any thinking person (that leaves out Al Gore) knows that science is never "settled." Further, as Galileo taught us, there is no such thing as science by "consensus." Famed physicist Richard Feynman said, "Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts." This is a great truism to keep in mind when encountering climate alarmists who promote themselves as "experts."
According to a theory proposed by climate scientists known as the "hydrate hypothesis," global warming will melt the permafrost in the polar regions, suddenly releasing massive amounts of methane hydrate into the atmosphere. Since methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, climate Armageddon will ensue.
An article compiled by John Stokes in the "socially progressive" newspaper and blog The Canadian, contends that the resulting climate devastation will kill an estimated 4.5 billion people in five years. The only problem with this prediction is that the article was written in 2007. What was our fate to be? Stokes explains:
Runaway Global Warming promises to literally burn-up agricultural areas into dust worldwide by 2012, causing global famine, anarchy, diseases, and war on a global scale as military powers including the U.S., Russia, and China, fight for control of the Earth's remaining resources.
In a complete turnabout that should make warmists' heads explode, naturally-occurring methane hydrate deposits have been found not to be a threat to mankind, but rather a promising new source of cheap, plentiful energy. Japan has successfully piped the natural gas from under the Sea of Japan. Other countries and energy companies are sure to join in and perfect the extraction technology, just as has been done with fracking.
Why is it that global warming "experts" claim to be concerned about humanity, but seem to find glee in contemplating its destruction? Actually, my belief is that they hate capitalism with such passion that its elimination is their singular focus. Their weapons of war are pseudo-scientific scare tactics and outright lies. Humanity is just collateral damage.
