Well lo and behold, the global alarmists may have exaggerated their claims as I and many skeptics have been trying to point out, and receiving a lot of personal attacks in the process. This report out yesterday now has scientists beginning to back track on their earlier assessments of oceans rising and calamity ensuing:
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century. If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
I never contested the warming trend, nor did I ever contest the notion of climate change, or man’s contribution, although I do believe man plays a much smaller role in the warming then the vaunted IPCC “consensus” would have us believe. I also am in strong disagreement with the IPCC conclusion that to resolve the current warming trend, developed nations must buy “carbon credits”, restrict their output, and essentially transfer wealth to undeveloped nations, of course all through the channels of the world elite. That never made sense to me and smacked of corruption.
I have also never understood how so many people could ignore the fact that our planet is a living organism that is tens of millions of years old, has survived calamities far worse, and has an amazing ability to regulate itself. To think that man could irreversibly harm the planet that is millions of years old in just a short 100 years of emitting greenhouse gases simply defies logic – at least in my opinion, and I believe my opinion will now be confirmed within the next year. This doesn’t mean that we can ignore the harm that our current way of life does to the planet. We do need to be more eco conscious, find a mass produceable, cleaner energy base, and wean ourselves from coal and fossil fuel, but that day will come.
