Not acting on climate crisis is at our peril : Comments

By Alon Ben-Meir, published 23/8/2019

The scientific evidence is overwhelming, and denying that climate change is already upon us, especially as the president and his party does, flies in the face of the indisputably dire consequences.

Hey Alon.

Saying that "climate change is real and visible for all to see" is a fatuous statement with no basis in fact. I just looked out my front door and it is just another cold, windy August day in Sydney, exactly what is to be expected.

Michael Manne was just another obscure scientist from the relatively unimportant science of Climatology, who realised that scaring entire countries with a global warming scam would do a load of good for his obscure science and his own self aggrandisement. He invented the infamous "hockey stick" graph which conveniently forgot to include the Medieval Warm Period, a warm period 2 degrees hotter than today. The scam was to make everybody think that global warming today is unique and not a regularly recurring event.

And the best climate prediction to date is that the world is overdue for a (usually regular as clockwork) 10,000 year global cooling. The fact that the planet has not warmed since 1998 could be a portent to a cooling catastrophe to come. So if burning coal supposedly raises temperatures, let's hope that this is right and we can set fire to every coal field to prevent us freezing to death. Global cooling is a lot more of a serious problem than global warming.

The global warming scam is serious because it is trashing the legacy of science as an impartial source of information to be trusted. President Eisenhower warned against socialised scientists using the moral authority of science to dictate policies to government. That is exactly what has happened, and you, Alon, are part o the problem.

Australians in particular have had a gutful of climate change alarmists and that is the primary reason why Shorten and Labor lost the "unlosable" election. The Labor elite are living so high up in the clouds in their ivory towers that they can not even see the people on the ground, far below. Their own voters are angry about electricity prices and a "Labor" Party more interested in a fanciful ideology which will deindustrialise their country, than ensuring their future prosperity.

There is no climate 'crisis'; there is only natural climate change, which can be endured if people stop pissing their pants or deliberately trying to scare the naive.

blah blah been hearing the lying narrative for over 50 years. Was not long ago an ice age was forecast. Takes such blind faith to believe this nonsense. Teach people to pick up rubbish and not litter if you want to preach to others and don't try disguising your Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Donít worry a few blackouts this summer will concentrate people on why the most expensive, impractical and unreliable has been touted as what we need!
If this is the emergency we are told it is then no car or aeroplane travel for any MP, member of a political party first. Same rules for housing, just you and the wife one bedroom dwelling legislated. Add in public servants and letís really organis a sparser, cheaper and frugal lifestyle. Just for our leaders to lead us by example!

Dear LEGO, ttbn, runner, JBowyer,

I'm sure your fellow creation scientist Bazz would be happy if you take a look a the Cook article he cited.

Here is the FULL CITATION:

Cook, J., et al. 'Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature', Environmental Research Letters 8 (2), 2013.

This topic is so overdone it has turned to charcoal, and so now at least it can be used to make electricity.
The argument for and against are both full of facts, but no one can extrapolate the "truth" from it all.
The only truth that has not changed or wavered over the millennia is the fact that the Earth goes in cycles, and that is both a fact and the truth.
