Well it makes as it pretty obvious that the decline in global piracy is the cause of global warming.
An interesting article from the Sydney Morning Herald on the recent bushfires, which echoes rather more baldly the opinion I’ve heard elsewhere.
As reported here, anecdotal evidence for global cooling has increased, and now the latest data from the main sources of global climate data backs this up: over the past year, the global temperature has dropped by between 0.65 and 0.75 degrees centigrade, the largest single drop in a year, and enough to wipe out the alleged effect of global warming in the last century.
A couple of things come to mind here. First of all, the whole global warming debacle is over less than one degree in the last century? Just get lost. Go. Desist. Leave me alone. Stop confusing me with someone who cares. That ain’t global warming, that’s noise.
Secondly, if the temperature can drop that suddenly in a year, the effect we’re having on the planet is tiny. Even if the eco-nutters are right, the sum total effect of global warming in the last century has been wiped out by, oh, I don’t know, being at the bottom of the sunspot cycle?
I’m pleased to see that Porsche have been brave enough to challenge the CONgestion charge that Ken Leninstone is proposing to increase to punitive measures in London.
Of course, this will spread. To other citites, and to smaller engines, until our cities are an urban wasteland and we sit indoors all day letting our cars rust in the drive. If you don’t want to be next, please sign the petition.
There’s an awful lot of hype out there on CO2, and it’s contribution to global warming. Personally, I’m in favour of the evidence that suggests that increased atmospheric CO2 is the PRODUCT of global warming, not the cause.
From www.canada.com, this article is one of a series. Just last week, the fourth United Nations International Panel on Climate Change report was issued to mass media hysteria.
Some of the quotes from this series of articles are priceless: “the IPCC itself, in both 1995 and 2001, had found no global warming signal in the hurricane record. ”
And if that’s not enough:
“Mars has global warming, but without a greenhouse and without the participation of Martians,” he told me. “These parallel global warmings — observed simultaneously on Mars and on Earth — can only be a straightline consequence of the effect of the one same factor: a long-time change in solar irradiance.”
“Solar activity can explain a large part of the 20th-century global warming,” he states, particularly because of the evidence that has been accumulating over the past decade of the strong relationship that cosmic- ray flux has on our atmosphere. So much evidence has by now been amassed, in fact, that “it is unlikely that [the solar climate link] does not exist … Yet Dr. Shaviv also believes fossil fuels should be controlled, not because of their adverse affects on climate but to curb [hydrocarbon] pollution.
I don’t know what the agenda is, but climate change has been blown out of all proportion. Climate change is something that happens over millenia, not decades. We won’t know for centuries if our climate is permanently changing. And by then it will be too late, one way or the other.
CO2 levels were higher when dinosaurs ruled the earth.
The snow line in the Alps was 3,000 feet higher at the time of the Roman Empire.
We are in an interglacial period right now. Of course galciers are receeding. Of course ice shelves are melting. It started happening 10,000 yeas or more ago, and will probably carry on for the next several thousand years at least.
