According to a recent report by the Meteorological Organization (WMO), CO2 levels are now just over 400 ppm in the northern hemisphere. But a funny thing happened on the way to the collapse of our civilization: global temperatures (what is actually observed) haven't gone up in over 18 years.
In fact, they've flat-lined. According to the theory of man-made global warming, any increase in CO2 would be followed by a swift rise in temperatures. They haven't. So where are the headlines from the mainstream media (MSM) touting this good news? Remember, the MSM doesn't report good news. Bad for business.
So I will.
Arctic sea ice has rebounded to higher and higher levels each year. Antarctica is actually gaining in size. No increase in droughts, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, 'extreme weather', flooding, etc...
Contrary to the report's dire message from the alarmist WMO, CO2 molecules are heavier than the air around them, and gravitate toward the planet's surface, where the weak carbon-dioxide bond is broken down in the soil and utilized by plants and microbes or absorbed into our vast oceans. In other words, nature is making good use of the paltry amount of CO2 we add to the air around us.
Even without our using of carbon-based products, in the last fifty years we've added 40-50 ppm of CO2 to the atmosphere (this is being generous). At least 350 to 360 ppm of CO2 comes from naturally occurring sources. Two of the largest being volcanic activity and ocean turbulence.
The WMO and the U. S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration want headline-seeking journalists to believe that we have reached the "threshold," the ominous point of no return. Let's admit it: it does make for good copy.
What they fail to admit, even in the face of actual, observable evidence that man-made global-warming theory is unraveling by its seams, is that climate change has become a money-making boondoggle of gargantuan proportions.
Repeatedly we've read that scientists who set out to "test" the theory of global warming are vilified, threatened, censored, and eventually shunned via the machinations of the climate-science community.
But long-term history has shown us that that the minority view of globally held truths, the "skeptics," the ones that challenge scientific consensus, that push the envelope and plod forward against insurmountable obstacles, were right on the button. More often than not.
And what did these skeptics teach us? Science isn't about beliefs. Or consensus. It's about facts. And the hard, cold, unforgiving facts do not support the tent poles holding up the theory of global warming.
Scientists are free to believe in anything they hold in profound deference. That is called faith. And it belongs in church. It is a right held by all of us.
What no scientist is free to do is wish something to be true by conforming and twisting and torturing the facts around a crater of lies. That is called magical thinking. And they do not hold that right. We expect better of the people we train to be our thinkers, our truth-seekers, and yes, even our skeptics.
Einstein knew this. As did Alfred Wegener. Plus Girolamo Fracastoro and Robert Hooke. So if you think man-made global warming isn't true because it has been repeatedly debunked through observation and experimentation, that the predictions from thirty years ago have not proven true, that the whole scientific method as applied here falls apart at the starting gate, you're in good company.
That's the good news. The bad news? It's time for you to speak up.
