Global warming: Still junk science after all these years
Climate alarmists insist that an increase of one degree in the average global temperatures is a signal that the end of civilization is near.
Every day a new revelation: more fires in California, snow in Antarctica is turning green, salmon are dying in Alaska – all attributed to rising temperatures.
The first question an inquiring mind would ask is, does the Earth maintain the same average temperature over millennia and how does it accomplish that task?
The answer is that it doesn’t.
Civilization began because of global warming.
About 6,000 years ago, according to experts, hunter-gatherers were driven from the higher lands because rising temperatures brought drought, loss of plants and animals, and famine.
They moved to river valleys in three or four places around the globe, most notably the Nile River.
There they had water and the water also provided food. But planting by hand did not suffice.
Someone devised the plow.
It was the “trigger” that led to a series of technological inventions and discoveries and brought about civilization, according to the book Connections, by James Burke, which also became a highly popular TV series in 1978.
Plowed fields meant surplus crops, and planning for the harvest and storage included preparing for the annual Nile floods, which brought about math, writing and cloth clothing, and a series of events subsequently that Burke linked to the 1965 electrical shutdown in Northeast America..
All because the Earth’s temperature had increased 6,000 years ago.
Has the global temperature remained the same every year since then? Climate alarmists admit it has not but say it has risen about one degree since 1850, which they say is way too fast.
It will mean crops can’t be grown in some places where they now flourish.
But won’t they grow in places where it has been too cold?
Those who predict the end of civilization by the very mechanism that brought about civilization still have a lot of explaining to do if they expect people to give up their freedom and wealth to a global government that promises to control the climate that experts admit they don’t fully understand.
