Global Warming Hoax

I tried to come up with a catchy title for this one but nothing came to mind. The overwhelming evidence that the Global Warming/Climate Change hysteria is nothing but a perpetrated hoax intended to change our way of life keeps me from thinking of anything humorous.

I have done many posts on this subject over the more than seven years I have been doing this blog. I have statistics, scientific reports, quotes from climatologists and scientists, etc that show that this "crisis" is total bunk. Most of these posts were from figures gathered over five years ago. At that point we had had over ten years of NO WARMING! We now are approaching TWENTY YEARS of no warming and a slight cooling! The stability (or slight cooling - depending on which figures you use) of the global temps has occurred at the same time that the atmospheric concentration of CO2 has grown to well over that "tipping point" of 400 parts per million. From WWII up until the mid 1970s (not meant to be exact dates, I have those in other posts) the global temperatures were falling. There were many articles, books, and pseudo-scientific papers published about how we were heading for disaster due to global cooling and an ice age. Then things started to warm. We went through about twenty years of warming - through the mid-90s. So, the "scientists" and eco-crooks latched onto the
"global warming" issue and told us we would all cook or drown if we did not send Al Gore and his bunch a large portion of our money. As I said above, we have now been cooling (or stable) for about twenty years. So, we now just call it "climate change". That way they can ask for money no matter what happens to the actual temps.

Some facts:
1) Even at our levels of CO2 in the atmosphere currently, we are nowhere near the historic high levels. There were many times (as documented by ice core samples, and other means) that the CO2 levels exceeded current levels. Guess what - at some of those times the temperatures were warmer, and at some times the temperatures were cooler. Atmospheric CO2 has NOT been proven to have ANY affect on global temperatures.

2) At our current levels of CO2 of 400 ppm+, do any of you want to guess what percentage that is of the total atmosphere? (if you did well in your High School or College math you can guesstimate pretty closely) The total atmospheric CO2 is LESS THAN FOUR HUNDREDTHS OF A PERCENT! (@ .038%) It is inconceivable that something as complex as our ecosystem would be wrecked by 4/100 of one percent of something that is naturally occurring and REQUIRED by all plant life to exist!

3) At our current levels of CO2 emissions humans contribute less than 5% of the total that is released into the atmosphere. The oceans, volcanic activity, biological decay, and other natural processes release the other 95%. So, I will restate the above - it is inconceivable that something as complex as our ecosystem would be wrecked by 4/100 of one percent of something that is naturally occurring and required by all plant life to exist AND that we humans are contributing only an extra 5% to!

4) The ice caps are NOT decreasing. The ice coverage has increased over the last decade or so as the global cooling/stabilization occurred. Yes, there have been ice shelves that have melted. Yes, there are glaciers melting. There are also ice shelves that are increasing in thickness and overall size as well as glaciers doing the same. Ice coverage has changed throughout history. Almost anywhere humans live today at some point was covered in a sheet of ice. Guess what, it melted.

5) 97% of scientists do NOT agree that there is man-made global warming. It is actually more like 1%. There are over 31,000 scientists that have signed a petition stating that man-made global warming is a hoax. (see "Global Warming Petition Project). Over 9,000 of them are PhDs. There is so much money* involved that any dissenters are treated like pariahs and outcasts. Since a LOT of the funding for scientific research is sponsored by government, it is stifling to comment. If you speak out you are basically not able to get money for you work.
* The US alone spends about 22 Billion a year on anti-climate change. The economic impact of the EPA and other regulatory agencies and policies is about 1.7 Trillion - BIG money indeed!

There Ought to be a Law

Well I have not posted since right before Christmas when the Christmas poem came to me. We (the collective we) were lamenting about goings on in far off lands and learning new ways to disrespect each other. Now we are back to one of the tried and true ways - fighting over gun control. Before I get into it let me let you give you some facts about me - I do not own any guns. I have never watched Fox news (except for switching between them and MSNBC and PBS on election night - I enjoy the contrast). I have voted for Democrats and Republican over my voting years. I try to get to facts instead of emotions on issues that are very inflammatory, like gun control. There has been another school shooting by a crazed individual with a gun; no THE gun, that all the world's troubles have been attached to; the AR-15. (AR-15-style is more correct, as actual AR-15s - trademark name owned by Colt - are a small part of the market as every rifle manufacturer makes a variant) This rifle is a semi-aut

Covid-19, 18, 17, 16...1 - BOOM!

I had hoped not to do another Covid-19 post, but here I am - doing one! As I noted in a previous post, I have been amazed at the sheer panicked response to this virus. I guess since I do not watch any TV news, nor ever watched a press conference by anyone concerning the virus, maybe I have missed some of the worst hyperbole. Maybe since I actively work on my health and especially my immune system regularly I have not been as affected by it. I am not sure. Let me start out by saying I am not an anti-vax'er, at least by my standards. I do have and get the DPT and MMR vaccines. I have been vaccinated against polio and smallpox. I have also had the Covid-19 vaccine, and am what is still referred to today as "fully vaccinated" with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. (more in a moment on that). In the spirit of disclosure, I have never gotten a seasonal influenza shot, and at this time I cannot ever see myself getting one. Currently I am also not planning on getting a Covid-19

AGE and AGEING

  Age is just a number. You are only as old as you feel. Ageing is just another word for living. It's not how old you are, it's how you are old. You probably have heard most if not all of those statements. Depending on your age when you heard them, you may have chuckled, or you may have just ignored them. What is old? Age IS a number. We use it to have a measure of someone's maturity, although it is not a very good indicator of this. As for how old one may feel, I cannot speak for others but for me that means there are days I have one foot in the grave and others that I should join in a T-ball game.  To a 4 year old, a 10 year old is - old! In fact, I have a formula - if you are from 5 to 15 in age - someone that is half-again older than you - rounded up to the next whole year, is old (for clarity - I am not talking "ancient", just old). For example, a 6 year old would consider a 9 year old - old. They can stay up later. Instead of being in first grade, they are i
