Many of you will know by now that I am not a believer in global warming. You will also be aware that the government continues to push the dangerous and costly hype on an almost daily basis.
My constant banging on about the planet cooling is not because it’s my pet theory, it’s because the amount of lives lost with a temperature drop of even a few degrees will be massive. I find it unforgivable that the government fails to even hint that this scenario may come to pass, thus preventing their citizens from preparing for such an event.
An article on the NASA website under the tag ‘Headline News’ and dated March 5th 2004 highlights that global warming can cause global cooling, and fast. NASA, as I’m sure you’re aware, is a United States government agency…they are part of the US government. If a government department is reporting that the planet could rapidly cool as a side effect of warming is it beyond the bounds of reason to think that it may have been mentioned to the public?
The science in the article is sound, presuming you accept that the world is warming, and it leaves us in a position that indicates that global cooling is going to happen. It’s just the cause of that cooling that remains, at this point, undecided.
Woods Hole, which is part of NOAA, which is a government agency, has an entire index page of articles relating to the climatic effects of the Gulf Stream slowing down. In February 2003 one of their senior scientists wrote an article entitled ‘Are We on the Brink of a New Little Ice Age?”
We hear constantly that a 2°C rise in temperature will be disastrous. Well let me tell you a 2°C DROP will be an even bigger disaster. A 2°C drop is all that stands between us and a cold period such as the Little Ice Age, and a 5°C drop is all it would take to trigger a full blown ice age.
Humans are creatures who flourish in a warm environment, as does the bulk of the food we rely on. Just yesterday, Patrick Moore the co-founder of Greenpeace said:
“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,”
Even if the planet is warming up, Moore claimed it would not be calamitous for men, which he described as a “subtropical species.” (source)
Drops in temperature caused by volcanic eruptions spewing sulphur dioxide and ash into the air give us an insight into what life would be like a couple of degrees cooler than it is now. 1816 is referred to as the year without a summer due to the effects of the Tambora eruption. Luckily once the ash starts to fall down and the aerosols start to disperse temperatures can begin to recover, usually within a few months of the eruption. This would not be the case in a general cooling of the climate. General cooling takes a long time to reverse, and temperatures would be lower than they currently are for decades at a minimum.
Agriculture would be affected across the Northern hemisphere leading to widespread food shortages. Colder weather would lead to more snow and ice storms, which in turn would lead to more and longer duration power outages.
Preparing for a series, possibly several decades worth of bitterly cold winters that last for months, is not something that can be done at short notice. Yet here we have at least two government scientific organizations acknowledging that for whatever reason, it’s likely that the planet is going to get colder in the coming years.
I do not accept that this administration, and the Bush administration before it has/had no knowledge of the situation.
I believe they have wilfully withheld information that will cause the death of millions of Americans citizens.
Another victory for the government eugenicists who regard the population at large as inferior and therefore only fit for extermination.
