4.1 Is the Earth Heading for Climate Catastrophe?

 

Climate alarmists say that our earth is heating up because we burn fuel that produces carbon dioxide.  They say that carbon dioxide is like the glass in a greenhouse.  That glass lets light in which turns to heat when it hits the ground.  The glass doesn't let the heat out.  Climate alarmists believe that the carbon dioxide stops heat from escaping also.  One way to tell if a theory is correct or not is to make predictions based on the theory and see if they come true.  If they do the theory is probably right, if they don't the theory is wrong. 

Scientists and others have already made predictions based on the global warming theory and they have all been wrong.  So it really shouldn't be called a theory.  Here are some of the wrong predictions that have been made.

Date Prediction Made Date Prediction was Supposed to Come True Prediction
1970: 1980 Oceans Dead in a Decade, US Water Rationing by 1974, Food Rationing by 1980
1972 1982 Maurice Strong, first UN Environment Program director warned that "the world had just 10 years to avoid catastrophe"  He was predicting global cooling.
1982 2000 UN predicted planetary “devastation as complete, as irreversible as any nuclear holocaust”

2000: 2003 Dr. Viner a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit of the University of East Anglia, said that in England "Within a Few Years Children Won’t Know what Snow Is".  Over the next decade, not only did British children still retain the lost knowledge of what snow is, but the UK was hammered with record snowfalls. Eight years later over 3,000 schools had to be closed and much of the country was shut down by the heaviest snowfall in 18 years.

2019 2021 Prince Charles says we have just 18 monthes left to fix climate change
2019 2031 Rasmussen survey shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that the United States has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world.
2021 2022 Denver Post warned that “climate change is shrinking the Colorado ski season.”.  In 2022 Vail extended its skiing season for “the longest continuous season in Vail Mountain history” In February 2022, Denver broke weather records to hit the coldest temperature in 109 years. At a balmy -7 degrees, the latest outbreak of global warming plunged the city down to a low that had not been seen since 1899.

 

 

One of the predictions made above by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in 2019 is that the world will end in 12 years which would be 2031.  We don't know if it will or not since it's not 2031 yet, however given all the previous predictions that didn't come to pass it is likely that if the world ends by 2031 it won't be because of climate change.  She makes the prediction as well as a lot of other hair raising statements about climate change in the video below. 



The world has already ended for many people in England who died because they couldn't afford their heating bills that went up because of green energy.  People are starving in Ghana and Sri Lanka because of green energy policies.  The last lesson in this series on climate discusses this.

One of the predictions above was that the Artic would be ice free by 2015.  Not only is the Artic not ice free but Artic ice and Antartica ice is
expanding.  That's according to the Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility's High Latitude Processing Center which says that the ice expanded 30% in 2021 over 2020.  

Tony Heller has a video about the ice free Artic predictions below.



Tony Heller discusses more predictions that went wrong in the two videos below.







 

    The theory is wrong but why?  Perhaps it's because climate alarmists overestimate the heating effect of carbon dioxide.  It may be correct that carbon dioxide blocks some heat escaping the earth but the question is how much heat?

 

Here is a video that shows just how wrong the predictions of the climate are.  This video is from Sept of 2020

 

 

Here 5 months later Tony Heller talks about cold and snow records in January 2021.  He starts by quoting from a novel
written by George Orwell in 1949.  George Orwell called the novel 1984.  His book predicted a world in which a bad government would control people through deception (fooling people) and by not letting them speak the truth.  Not letting people speak the truth is called censorship.  Censorship is being done today by Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and other media such as newspapers and TV.  The quote from George Orwell was "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears.  By party George Orwell meant the government.  The government was lying to the people but the people could see and hear things that showed them the government was lying.  So the government didn't want people to believe what they saw and heard.  Tony Heller says that is happening with climate.  We see snow and we feel cold but people want us to believe that the world is warming.

 

 

 

Unusual cold and snow keeps happening.  Here is a video from Cincinnati in April 2021.  Cincinnati was just one of many cities hit with record cold in April.

Here is a graph of carbon dioxide and temperature from 1996 to 2012. 

Carbon dioxide went up from about 362 ppm to 395 ppm during that time.  PPM means parts per million.  That's an increase of 395 - 362 = 33 ppm.  That means that every gallon of air had an increase of 33 millionth of a gallon of carbon dioxide.  There are 75,708 drops in a gallon.  That means the increase in carbon dioxide in a gallon is 33/1000,000 * 75,708 = only 2.5 drops.  The light blue line on the graph is the variation of temperature from the usual temperature for different dates.   The blue arrow averages these changes and shows that the total increase was only 3 hundredth of a degree over 16 years.  That's not surprising because the increase in carbon dioxide compared to the atmosphere is so small.  What is so surprising is that global warming alarmists can scare so many people over such a  tiny increase in carbon dioxide.

Climate scientists traveled toward the North Pole to evaluate the melting of the Artic ocean.  The ocean they thought they could travel in froze around them trapping them.  You can see a picture of their trapped boat below.

Another group of scientists were trapped by ice in the Antartica.  A doctored image of the trapped ship is shown below with the words "An Inconvenient Truth" which is the name of a movie that says we face a climate emergency.

Global warming alarmists want to impose huge costs on everyone and they tell us these costs are necessary to fight climate change.  They make the cost of fuel very expensive so that we will use less fuel with the result that the cost of everything goes up.  Fuel is needed to produce food, fuel is needed to bring food to the supermarket, fuel is needed to heat the supermarket in winter and cool it in summer.  All these costs get passed to the consumer as the cost of food goes up.  If people aren't aware of this and of how much global warming alarmism is wrong, they won't act to stop it from happening.  While global warmists create panic about the climate they may bring about economic disaster. When I posted a link to this web page in the comment section of a global warming article Facebook censored it.  That is probably because global warming alarmists who saw the comment tagged it as fraud.  The people who stifle free speech deserve what is happening but the rest of us don't.

The cost of fuel makes it harder for our companies to compete.  They have to charge more for their products with the result that people will buy cheaper products from China and India, countries that continue to use cheap energy.  Not only do those countries use cheap energy they use coal instead of gas which emits more carbon dioxide and more pollution as well.  Despite the huge expenditures of Europe and the United States on green energy, the amount of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions has continued to increase.  Ironically American and European expenditures on expensive green energy actually increases carbon dioxide emissions.  It also increases inflation.

Michael Moore made a movie called Planet of the Humans, which demonstrates multiple ways that reliance on green energy actually increases carbon dioxide emissions as well as toxic waste.

Here is a video of Guy McPherson predicting that human life will end by 2026 due to global warming.  Human lives will end end due to hunger caused by hyperinflation, cold due to not enough energy to keep warm, and wars but the absurdity of his predictions speak for themselves.  This material is not covered on the quiz and is just included here to make a point.
