Environmental Experts Dismiss the Threat of Man-Made Climate Change

WASHINGTON, DC, Sep 19 — When politicians support a scientific theory, take it with a grain of salt. Their reasons are more than likely to achieve political goals. Take the controversial issue of climate change. 

Patrick Moore was there when the controversial organization known as Greenpeace was officially established back in 1971 with the goal of ensuring “the ability of the earth to nurture life in all its diversity.” He was a co-founder and president of the organization, which became a powerful political movement that Moore, ultimately, was not willing to accept and it caused him to take his leave. 

Moore has a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of British Columbia and in 2005 North Carolina State University awarded him an Honorary Doctorate of Science; he has an international reputation as an expert when it comes to the environment and climate change, says The Epoch Times.

He told the Times recently that “Greenpeace was ‘hijacked’ by the political left when they realized there was money and power in the environmental movement. [Left-leaning] political activists in North America and Europe changed Greenpeace from a science-based organization to a political fundraising organization.”

“Very few people believe the world is not warming. The record is clear that the world has been warming since about the year 1700, 150 years before we were using fossil fuels. 1700 was the peak of the Little Ice Age, which was very cold and caused crop failures and starvation. Before that, around 1000 A.D., was the Medieval Warm period when Vikings farmed Greenland. [And] before that, around 500 A.D., were the Dark Ages, and before that, the Roman Warm Period when it was warmer than today, and the sea level was 1–2 meters higher than today,” Moore said.

He dismisses the notion that man-made climate change is making the earth dangerously warm. On the contrary, he says, the earth is colder than it was in the past and carbon dioxide is lower than it has been in the planet’s history. “But you would never know this if you listen to all the people who benefit from the lie that the Earth will soon be too hot for life and that CO2 will become higher than in Earth’s history,” Moore said.

The history of climate change politics goes back more than a century. Dr. Steven Allen, a distinguished senior fellow at the investigative think tank, Capital Research Center, tells us that as far back as 127 years, for example, the New York Times was running stories with headlines such as “Geologists Think the World May Be Frozen Up Again.” In 1932, “the Times warned Melting Polar Ice Caps to Raise the Level of Seas and Flood the Continent.” By the middle of the last century, scary media coverage of climate change was on the rise. In 1958, for example, Harper’s Magazine was predicting The Coming Ice Age. “Generations of journalists promoted ‘scientific’ claims about the climate apocalypse. They should apply the first rule of both science and journalism: At all times, be skeptical.”

Back to Patrick Moore. When discussing the history of climate change, the “doomsayers” use a timeframe that goes back only to 1850. They call the eras prior to the mid-19th century the pre-industrial age, Moore said. “This ‘pre-industrial age’ was more than 3 billion years when life was on the Earth. Many climate changes [occurred during that period], including Ice Ages, Hothouse Ages, major extinctions due to asteroid impacts, and other unknown causes. Today, the Earth is in the Pleistocene Ice Age, which began 2.6 million years ago … so the most recent major glaciation, which peaked 20,000 years ago, was not the end of the Ice Age. We are still in the Pleistocene Ice Age no matter how the climate alarmists wish to deny this.”

Climate change, of course, the climate is changing – why? When I hear it’s the worst weather since 1992 that tells me this happened before. So what does man have to do with it and what can man do about it? We can go to Mars, run around on the moon but we don’t seem to have any real knowledge of the weather or how to control it or even influence it a little. We can move the trajectory of asteroids, but we can’t move a hurricane or tornado even a few miles from a populated area or over a wild fire area. So maybe we should put some of our money into something that can actually help us for a change. Maybe we can change the weather. The climate is still probably a little beyond our grasp but I think we are doing our best to screw it up. It wouldn’t hurt to back off of a few things and green up the planted a little.

Nooooo, tell me it’s not true! Man didn’t destroy the climate? OK, I already knew that. Why? Because GOD created this climate and the whole world. Only HE can destroy it. Unless those who believe in all this believe THEY are God. And for all those who still think climate change is real, (follow the money) you better hope and pray that there is never a world nuclear war because then the climate will really change and your efforts to put it back together again will be much harder.

the fact is man made global warming has been disproved 7 times in the last 50 years.

the man made global warming cultists just view it as their religion and the democrats view it as a great way to tax more, bribe more, and make money off corruption.

if you really want to know about climate drivers go research the milankovitch cycles, the amount of gases the earth natural produces and the impact wild fires and volcanoes have on climate. those things account for 99.95% of climate.

Mark Washington state is a ultra extreme liberal state and Seattle is the ultimate liberal city. Washington state government has been democrat for 50 years. they all believe as you do, well in the press anyway.

Seattle recently finished a tunnel they had been designing and voting on since 1985. it is 4 miles long. the entrance is right on the waterfront the majority of he tunnel is 10 feet below sea level. the entrance is 8 feet above sea level.

Mark those ultra extreme Washington state democrats know climate change based on man made global warming is BS. If you listen to their speech that tunnel should already be underwater. If you look at their actions they know the tunnel is not goign to be underwater.

I’ll let Patrick Moore defend himself. You seem brain-washed and unable to read and comprehend. Re-read the above article and try to understand that climate change is a hoax and a political trojan horse of the money grabbers of the world. This one article is among many if you will read and understand what the co-founder and president of Greenpeace is telling you. It has been high-jacked and turned into a political animal not for good, but for political power which is corrupting and destroying not the environment, but freedom and liberty and your standard of life. The Sierra Club is another, high-jacked organization. There are numerous ones attempting to cash in. Some people can’t wrap their heads around the idea that they are being played for nefarious activities. You may fall in this group. Reflect and Think, before you speak. Your life may depend on it.

Mark my family has owned a home at ocean shores Washington for about 100 years. it is three feet above sea level; always has been. since the 1960 people have been saying the ocean woudl rise 5, 10, 15, 20 feet. every few summers we hear some giant ice shelf, glacier, or whatever is goign to break off and cause an 3 foot sea level rise. 30 years ago Al Gore claimed death valley woudl be full of sea water in 10 years.

Guess what Mark the climate cultist? the house is still 3 feet above sea level.

The “ostrich with its head buried in the sand” syndrome apparently is alive and well. Yes, there are and have been natural swings in the climate of earth over time. However, today there is the added dimension of mankind and the impact we are having on climate. It is incontrovertible that CO2 levels have been rising directly as a result of burning fossil fuels. It is also incontrovertible that CO2 acts as a greenhouse gas.

The fallacy of the “climate change deniers” is that they fail to separate the natural climate cycles of the earth from the manmade impacts being superimposed over these natural cycles. It is the activity of mankind that is “fueling” (excuse the pun) the rapid climate change we are experiencing today. Their continuing denial will only serve to impede any meaningful course correction mankind must do in order to mitigate extreme climate change that is here now and on our horizon.

The evidence is already here and visible to everyone. Hurricanes and monsoons are becoming more intense, glaciers and ice caps are melting at an accelerated rate, and the Antarctic ice sheet is also melting and calving off large chunks of ice into the ocean, all due to rising temperatures. The ocean is becoming more acidic due to increased CO2 absorption, killing off coral reefs and adversely affecting fish populations. There are more intense floods and droughts throughout the world today than just a few years ago. We should expect such climate dislocations to become worse over time.

As long as there are chicken littles running in circles creating false crisis, there will be lemmings like Ed J who follow blindly. The earth’s climate has and is always changing due to naturally occurring factors like the fact that our north/south axis is actually wobbling over a 35,000 year cycle sometimes pointing more towards 11:00 and sometimes pointing towards 1:00 to use a clock analogy. These facts are indisputable and documented in books having nothing to do with the climate change “crisis”.
And as far as CO2, goes, CO2 is a natural gas used by plants to grow. Aquariums use CO2 bubblers to introduce needed CO2 into the water so aquatic plants will grow better. It doesn’t turn the water acidic and it doesn’t kill the fish as Ed here seems to believe. Other chemicals released into the water are the cause of that.
Everyone wants clean water, and everyone wants a clean environment. But the people Ed obviously support want to use this made-up “crisis” as a means to gain political control. Hey Ed, ever wonder why the climate penalties are only imposed on the free western countries and not the biggest sources of pollution such as India and China? Ever wonder why the ridiculous change mandates are only against the free countries? Ever wonder why the climate change “crusaders” like Kerry or Biden have carbon footprints 100x more than the average person, but they never seem to do anything to change that? Ever wonder why Miami isn’t submerged under a foot of water by now as projected? Ever wonder why climate change is blamed for creating more forest fires when other government agencies report that 95% of those fires are caused by people? Do you ever think?

Those of you who are naysayers are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Sorry, your ignorance leads you to believe otherwise.

Most physicists and astrophysicists have been trying to get the message out for decades that the notion of man-made climate change was a fallacy. A massive financial hoax being perpetrated by those looking to profit, via both money and power, off of the general ignorance and gullibility of the public. All by creating a sort of mass hysteria or cult-like religion around the scheme of what is now called climate change. Like everything else, the MSM has for decades picked the side of those most likely to benefit from the scheme and burying all opposing discussion on the subject. Thus when politicians talk of the “settled science” of climate change, what they are actually talking about is the the almost religious-like dogma surrounding the message of climate change. Most politicians also incorrectly conflate regular things like water or air pollution with climate change, when they encounter any resistance to spending vast sums of money to “save the planet”. They are of course two separate issues that have nothing in common, yet you frequently hear politicians talking about who could object to clean air and water in the same sentence as climate change. Again, hoping to drive the hysteria of the ignorant public higher, so costly “solutions” can be passed to supposedly address the issue. By the WEF’s own literature, they state the major first world powers (th G-20 nations) will have to spend $150 trillion dollars between now and 2050 to “save the planet”. An overwhelming majority of that amount is supposed to come from the United States. We currently produce $22 trillion in GDP. So for those with reasonable math skills, that gives you an overall idea how high taxes and the general cost of living In this country will have to rise to fund say 50 to 60 percent of the $150 trillion dollar total associated this financial scheme. This is about making those already very rich extremely rich beyond anyone’s imagination. The greatest redistribution of private wealth from the masses to a select few in world history.

There is vitually no hard science to back up the climate alarmists’ pronouncements on the subject. If there were, the alarmists wouldn’t have had to adjust their “end of the world” dates farther and farther out as each major, global catastrophy fails to occur decade after decade. In the United States, you can trace the beginnings of this movement back to the mid 1880’s to early 1890’s, if you want to see what the early alarmists were predicting about massive global cooling and a new ice age occuring by the early 20th century in the major newspapers of the times. This scheme has been going on for quite some time and gaining momentum as more and more corrupt politicians hop on board what they see as an express train to billions of dollars in personal profit.

Earth’s climate has been in a constant state of change since the planet was originally formed 4 billion years ago. Climate was changing on earth long before mankind existed on this planet and the climate will continue to change when we are no longer inhabiting this planet. Our climate is overwhelmingly governed by solar activity and the sun’s interaction on our planet. There are literally dozens of metrics related to this inaction that drive climatic change over the millenia. I have yet to hear from any politician or so-called “climate activitist” how they intend to tax or regulate or otherwise govern the sun’s natural activities to mitigate what is a completely natural effect on our planet.

Your presentation is inherently incorrect, especially as to the science involved. There are lots of “scientific experts” out there who will render their “opinions” as if it were gospel fact. One needs to remove all the political fog from the equation and dig down to the scientific fundamentals for a proper understanding of what is happening. Once this is done, it will be obvious that we are in a period of accelerated climate change. Natural climate change cycles cannot account for the rapid changes in climate that we are experiencing today. Mankind is the only causative agent remaining to explain the difference.
