I have never believed in this man-made global warming shit.
From the start, logic alone told me that the influence that man has on the climate is miniscule at best. It's like a supertanker's cat being afraid to go near the side of the ship in case his weight capsizes it.
The Earth's climate is an vast intricate machine on a cosmic scale. It would therefore take something on an equally cosmic size to affect it, and that is obviously the sun. When you realise that the Sun constantly pumps something like 174,000 Terrawatts at the Earth [that’s 174,000,000,000,000,000 Watts, 24 hours a day] you realise the scale of things.
Of course the fact that the Sun is variable in its output is a boon to the Warble Gloamists as they can blame the variations on mankind and then spend billions [nay, trillions] on trying to fix the unfixable. By the time mankind wakes up to the Big Con, it's too late and the fortunes have been made.
I read with interest Christopher Booker's latest where once again he debunks the latest frantic claims about ice caps shrinking and alarming warnings that the sky is about to fall on our heads. The debunking of the alarming predictions is now as commonplace as the predictions themselves.
What caught my attention though was a wee link buried in the comments.
Now here is an eminent society producing a model that predicts events with a 97% accuracy [compared to the 0% accuracy of the Warble Gloamists]. What's more, this is on a cosmic scale so if I were a betting man I would place my entire vast fortune betting that their predictions of climate change are damn near on the mark.
So they predict that in fifteen to twenty years we are going to experience another Maunder Minimum, or to put it in layman's terms – a mini ice-age. This is going to upset the Gloamists considerably, but they'll probably just claim that the ice-age is due to the success of their efforts and demand more taxes.
So my advice is to get out those fossil fuel burners. Burn as much crap as you can in your garden. Bring back London Smog. It won't make the blindest bit of difference to the climate but it might keep us warm enough to survive.
And if the Glaomists really want someone to blame for the disappearing ice caps, I suggest they look to Belfast.
There's a hotel there selling melted ice-cap [i.e. plain fucking water] at €37 a bottle.
Another enterprise taking money off fools because of melting ice.
