Science vs Politics. TRIGGER ALERT (for dramatic effect).
Now, I expect that some of my readers might take exception to the comments and interview below and I encourage you to add your thoughts as you see fit. As the recently added logo in the lower, right states, this simple, village undertaker is not political correct, but I do encourage the rational exchange of ideas. Rational being the operative word, please.
I know it’s not popular, but I find it difficult to embrace that man has the ability to cause lasting change to the massive ecosytem called earth. I also ponder how the cries have gone from global cooling to global warming within a few decades and how dire, apocalyptic predictions of the past have not come to be, but few seem to remember or care. The earth is resilient and has successfuly endured millions of years of change. As poorly as we have occasionally treated our environment, mother nature has overcome. The earth renews itself with cycles, ebbs and flows. It’s bigger than us.
Personally, I think “climate change” is more about control, power, prestige and money than it is about actually saving the planet, but hey, that’s the way I think about a lot of things.
I support that by citing the government wanting to control/regulate more and more of our daily activities in the name of “saving the planet” and the actors that fly in their private jets to pontificate about CO emissions and then fly back to The Vineyard, oblivious to what they preached about carbon footprints. I also look at pictures like the one here, reportedly taken after an Earth Day event and wonder what they were thinking?
It is always easier to talk (protest?) about something than it is to actually do something that helps.
Do we need to be responsible with the environment? Of course we do, but there is a lot of distance between being responsible and being fanatical, looking for safe spaces because of the fear that “the ice is melting, the ice is melting!”
John Coleman makes his points on CNN. John is the founder of The Weather Channel and he is a scientst. The video is two and a half minutes long. Even if you are fuming now and getting ready to “un-friend” me, listen to what John says and simply think about the possibility of what he is saying is true… especially about “the 97%.”
I’m with John, but I’d welcome your thoughts. Fire away.
The video is a condensed version of an interview that took place on CNN in 2014.
