Once you realize how badly you have been misled by AGW zealots, you suddenly understand that you must now pay attention to climate science on a totally new level.
If you have only recently become a skeptic, or only recently started thinking about it, then you may not be aware of the logical inconsistencies built into the theory that manmade global warming is turning the climate system into a post-Edenic nightmare.
I could list quite a number of them (and have before and will again), but need to be making preparations for the impending blizzard here in Rhode Island. So, in the time available to me, I will say this: Pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “It used to be snowier,” and then responds to equivalent snowfall in the current moment by saying, “This was caused by global warming,” pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “Storms of all kinds have gotten worse,” and you point out the dozens of instances proving the contrary, and they say, “Sandy was unprecedented,” pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “Winters used to be colder,” and you show them that winter weather runs in decadal, centennial, and millennial cycles, and they say, “But when I was a kid it was colder,” pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “Whenever it is cold now, that is really the result of global warming,” pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “American droughts of the last few years are unprecedented,” and you show them that droughts of the 1950s and 1930s were worse, and that megadroughts on the order of 500 years in duration have been found in the climate record of the land that is now the U.S. Southwest, pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “Look at this graph, temperatures are skyrocketing,” and you say, “That’s an anomaly graph, and you’re showing a tiny fluctuation that has occurred thousands of times before,” and they say, “We must do something before it’s too late,” pay attention.
When the global warming crowd says, “How dare you question science,” and you point out that (a) science and reason have to be closely acquainted at all times, (b) you question the reasoning underlying global warming, and (c) that all true scientists have questioned authority pretty much all the time and they say, again, “Yes, and how dare you question the science,” pay attention.
That’s enough for now. I have to go do about a hundred things, having had to work until late last night.
In the meantime, if you or someone you know needs a little blizzard reading, you can buy my book here.
Thank you for paying attention.
