I came across an interesting item the other day about our climate.
I have always known that the climate is changing. Even in my own lifetime it has changed and that is a minuscule timespan in the life of a planet.
What I do dispute, and dispute strongly is that humans have had any effect on that change. We are like a rat at sea on an oil tanker claiming that our weight is influencing the tanker’s course. We are tiny while the planet and its mechanisms are gargantuan, so the only logical conclusion is that it takes something equally vast to influence a climate. My money is on the Sun.
Now apparently the Sun is doing strange things. Sunspots have all but vanished and this has enormous implications for Earth. The last time there was a significant lack of sunspot activity was during the Maunder Minimum or the Medieval Mini Ice Age.
I’m not suggesting we are heading for an actual ice age, but we are heading into an interesting clash of ideas. On one hand we have everyone screaming that we are destroying the climate with our reckless carry on while on the other hand we have a celestial event which has a precisely predictable result. One says the climate will warm up while the other says it will cool down, but both can’t be right.
An if the climate does take a nosedive then what are the climate alarmists going to do? How are they going to justify all those carbon taxes?
We live in interesting times?
