I scanned the weather forecasts a couple of weekends ago in desperation, praying that the below-freezing winds passing straight through my body as I worked outside would soon abate…
Sure enough, temperatures, said the official forecasts, were going to rise daily over the next week until pleasantly mild. However, the cold remained locked in throughout the week. The forecast was wrong. I know I’m not the only one to ask this, but how can “experts” predict what our climate will like be in thirty years, if they can’t always predict the weather correctly for the next few days?
Climate change? Hasn’t the climate always “changed”? Isn’t that the history of earth? Why do I read about ice ages? Why do I read about fossilized palm leaves and camel and rhino remains in northern latitudes, where there is now permafrost and polar bears? Why were there farms in Greenland a thousand years ago where there is now ice, if climate change and global warming are brought on by human industry? And why have the dire predictions of our time made a couple of decades ago come to nothing? Why did warnings of “global warming” morph into “climate change”?
More to the point, why did the previous US administration want to cede large amounts of money and sovereignty to international organizations: to “global governance”?
I’ve recently observed several more challenges to the hysteria still being encouraged in many circles. In the first of three examples, 49 former NASA scientists dispute man-made climate change. Follow this link to the details:
Secondly, I read Roy Spencer’s recent book* in which he reviews Al Gore’s sequel movie “Truth to Power”. Among Spencer’s accomplishments is his work as a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA. He was principal observer on missions to observe the Earth from the Space-Shuttle. Spencer, in his conclusions, writes:
Most if not all of the weather events Al Gore presents…occur naturally anyway, and we have good evidence that they have happened in the past…
…none of it has evidence that humans are making it worse…
In some cases, Gore’s claims…can be shown to be outright false.
Finally, a physics professor who taught at Columbia and Princeton expresses in this video his understanding that it’s impossible to predict the climate years in advance:
