Good Evening Everyone,
Since I started the above subject heading I haven’t had the time or the opportunity to make a post on this subject which is clearly contentious to the nth degree.
A few years ago, when global warming and climate change were starting to be fashionable subjects of conversation and the seeds were being sown which have resulted in today’s constant barrage of information and fake news on these perceived man made catastrophes, I attended a series of lectures on G W & C C. These lectures were taken by an eminent academic and his first statement was - and I quote:-
" I’m not an expert on G W & C C and neither is anyone else. The reason is that it covers such a wide range of the earth sciences that it is impossible for any one person to be an expert in Oceanography, Meteorology, Climatology, Geology, Astronomy, Environmental Science etc etc."
He also went on to say that there are so many people whose job depends on G W & C C that by having a vested interest in such subjects that they do everything they can to perpetuate the current " climate " regarding G W & C C.
I recall a few years ago some academics at Norwich Uni were found to be putting out false data to support their theories on G W & C C.
I think it’s worth noting that all the news items, particularly from the BBC, are all about the negative aspects of G W & C C. They never give a balanced view and everything they broadcast is doom and gloom.
If there is G W & C C perhaps mankind has no solution to the problem but the politicians say they have, Perhaps it’s our vote they want and they don’t give a toss about the subjects. Perhaps there are too many people on the planet? If so, why don’t the politicians promote birth control? Perhaps they haven’t the balls to say so.
I often think that mankind must be the most arrogant species on the third rock from the sun if they think they can control the temperature and climate of the Earth.
My opinion on G W & CC is that the jury is still out and only time will tell.
I try to keep an open mind on the subject but a few people I know are totally convinced that the end of the world is nigh. When I ask them why - they reply - " Don’t you watch the news?"
