There’s been a lot of compelling pro-global warming media recently telling us how we need to take immediate action to stop global warming (aka climate change), and from supposedly reputable people and organizations – people like Bill McKibbon and the online publication Truthout. Yet, just last month (November, 2015), before the Climate Talks were to begin in Paris, the society of French mathematicians put out a white paper calling the fight against global warming “absurd”, and “a costly and pointless crusade”.
“There is not a single fact, figure, or observation,” the society wrote, “that leads us to conclude the world’s climate is in any way disturbed. It is variable and it has always been.” They added, “Mathematicians do not believe in crusades. They look at facts, figures, comments, and arguments.” http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-hollingsworth/french-mathematicians-blast-uns-absurd-crusade-against-global
REAL… OR MEMOREX?
Okay. So who is right? Well, after years of digging into this topic and going back and forth on the issue, I finally must agree with the mathematicians. First, global warming and cooling is indeed a natural cycle. There was an article published in the November 2, 1922 edition of the Washington Post that warned, “Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.” That, of course, was way before we had even heard of the term “greenhouse gasses.”
There have also been quite a few high level university studies over the years, and they’ve been all over the map – from saying our earth is warming to there’s a mini ice age on the way. Apparently this has to do with how scientists interpret the raw data. So, for a long time I really wasn’t sure what was going on. I also kept thinking, ‘Doesn’t the sun factor into this?” …and I’ll get to that in a minute.
Now, I’m not saying our earth isn’t undergoing some sort of climate change. What I’m suggesting, though, is that there’s an overriding political agenda driving forward actions that will do nothing to reverse climate change or help the average person… or even the average animal. But recently, I learned some things which convinced me that the global warming issue was a contrived political issue — and it’s not the fact that beachfront real estate values have not dropped a bit the past few years.
What tipped me off to this being a POLITICAL issue is the fact that the largest contributor to our greenhouse gasses doesn’t come from industry carbon emissions and the burning of fossil fuels, which this is supposedly all about. Nope. The largest contributor to man-made climate change and the greenhouse gases comes from the ANIMAL HUSBANDRY industry – mostly the beef industry; from the huge amount of methane released from the digestive process and cow feces… and lamb and pork to a lesser extent. This animal waste is devastating our environment. Not just our atmosphere, but our oceans and rainforests, too. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TETnnjrTyg).
If this worldwide cry to turn around global warming was real, would this fact, which has quietly been acknowledged by the United Nations and world governments, be concealed from the public? I think not.
People would be instituting changes right away in order to help our planet, and there wouldn’t be this ‘pressing’ need to institute a carbon emissions taxation scheme, and indeed it is a ‘scheme’. By the way, I’m not a vegetarian, but I would certainly join the call to stop eating beef if it meant ‘saving our planet’… or even the Jersey shore, for that matter. I have cut way back, though, after learning about this.
The second point I’d like to make has to do with the SUN. According to many reputable studies, the sun has by far the largest impact on our climate – way more than we do. Moreover, in recent years, scientist have reported that the sun has been heating up not just our own planet, but the entire solar system. Our weakening magnetic field, which you may have heard about, also factors in. It’s causing the sun’s radiation to have an even stronger effect on our climate. Here’s a website where you can visit to learn more about this. I was going to say this isn’t rocket science, but it probably is. (http://www.space.news/2015-10-06-entire-solar-system-is-heating-up-scientists-blame-solar-warming.html.
Getting back to my main point, how often do we see anything about the sun mentioned as a factor of any kind in most climate change articles? See for yourself. We’re not given the whole picture. It’s like the sun doesn’t even exist.
In summary, we have a situation here where the largest man-made and natural causes of global warming are being not just overlooked, but purposely suppressed. Which makes it pretty clear to me that this is a politically motivated agenda. Why would ‘they’ do this? The same reasons as always, I suppose. The word on the Internet is that it has something to do with a redistribution of wealth (through the carbon taxes), in order to take more power (and perhaps even personal liberties) away from the people of the wealthier nations.

IT’S A DONE DEAL. REALLY?
Today we’re being told that the matter has been decided. There is “scientific consensus“. And if you disagree with it you are ostracized; labeled a “climate denier.” It seems the pro-climate agenda people want you to feel as if you’re betraying the earth, itself. Well that’s a bunch of bull crap! (Quite literally, I suppose.)
The late doctor, author, and filmmaker, Michael Creighton wrote, “Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had. Let’s be clear. The work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Period.”
Let’s drop the bull crap, listen to and speak from our hearts, learn to live sustainably from cradle to cradle, and focus on those areas where we can make a difference…. starting with peace on earth and goodwill among… well, among all living beings.
