A wave of ‘Global Cooling’ continues to ravage Britain for the fifth straight day, with record snow falls clogging up London's streets and further hitting worker productivity. As this cold front continues to blow in from Siberia, another blizzard continues to blow in from Wall Street. Credit markets remain frozen solid. These two global crisis’ have one thing in common- both are not what they appear to be. Confused? Welcome to the club… the Davos club.
Like the Arctic polar bear, Al Gore and other captains of industry have been hibernating this past month, surprisingly absent from the headlines, as the cognoscenti gathered at this year’s Davos. As air mile budgets get reigned-in and hiring freezes imposed, Davos elite have been forced to confront a mini-ice age on two fronts...
On the climate front, experts have estimated these last two years have been some of the planet’s coldest ever winters, prompting even the most carbon-neutral pundits to re-examine the nearly institutionalised assumption of “Global Warming”. On the economic front, we've seen the perfect storm with an avalanche of bailouts worldwide and credit markets still snowed under. On its own, the month of January 2009 accounts for the worse bond market year in US history. And the list goes on. Is anyone surprised that our once fearless leaders, like the majority of the public- are fast becoming confused? One hopes common sense might prevail in the end...
Could there be a ‘Global Cooling’? Each day I have looked out of my hotel window in London, and thus far it’s been all-white, all week. Record snow falls throughout Britain. No problem for me, just need an extra layer, a hat and some gloves. But this prospect presents a few problems for the carbon capital crowd. Mind you, it’s nothing a little marketing can’t fix. Hence, the spectre of Global Warming is fast being rebranded into a more flexible label we will come to know as ‘Climate Change’.
The answer has been staring us in the face every morning at dawn. Even as far back as 1989, top scientists had attempted to shed some sunlight(of course) on the matter and so linked our weather to sunspot activity. To my knowledge the laws of the universe haven’t really changed since then. So what happened? Political leverage happened and Wall Street saw a profit, with both George Soros and Al Gore laying claim to top level of one of the world's biggest ever seen pyramid economy schemes... the carbon economy.
Now bare in mind, this writer is and has always been pro-recycling, pro-clean air, anti-toxic pollution, anti-GMO, pro-organic, pro-clean energy and pro-conservation. That's something which the people of this planet should never lose sight of- an agenda for common sense that makes for a better, cleaner environment. But the theory of man-made global warming... well that's another matter altogether.
It's become almost standard for all politicians to chime in on the evil without end, where logic shall have no dominion. Even new US President Obama believes that global warming is a major ‘national security issue’. And he wants to "attack it… aggressively". It’s times like this when you get the feeling that like Don Quixote, we are charging at windmills- whilst all that time missing real environmental events boiling below our media's surface.
Climate ‘changlings’ are now away in closed session with a massive "do not disturb" sign on the door, busy revising, and working out a new spin whereby our much-dreaded nemesis, carbon dioxide, “quite possibly… could actually be responsible” for making this one of coldest winters on record. Talk about a PR stretch, but it’s happening already. In similar fashion, self-styled global climate tzar Gore has been caught blaming cyclones on the scourge of C02. This is the domain of green charlatans and political hacks- where actual science has been usurped by good old fashion globalisation.
Now here is a revolutionary idea: we might actually be going through a natural cycle that these self-styled climate change "experts" are claiming is man made.
So we asked the US Department of Energy. They tell us that all of humanity contributes 3% of the worlds C02. They also say that C02 is responsible for only 9% of the greenhouse gases. So multiply 3% of 9% and you get 1/370, or in other words all of humanity’s CO2 ‘footprint’ constitutes about 1/370th of the earths greenhouse gases. Humans are relatively insignificant, and real climate scientists know this- but it does not pay to say so.
The fact is that we are in a cooling faze. My redneck friend(and college professor) Walter illustrated this extremely well in story form:
“Imagine you are in a bar. Some guy pulls out a cigar and lights it. You look over at that old thermometer on the wall. Does the temperature in the bar go up? No, it doesn’t. Get it? See, that there cigar in that bar is roughly equivalent to man’s CO2 contribution to our atmosphere.”
In other words, no matter how much we try- we cannot have any effect on climate, much less “change” it one direction or another. One volcanic eruption emits more greenhouse gas to our atmosphere than we can do collectively in 100 years. That includes the contribution by your old 1984 Dodge pick-up truck.
Last year at Davos, Gore eulogised, "If the world warms up by two degrees, all of the good work done in development will be undone". What good work is that? Carbon tax? Cap & Trade? It's just becoming stranger by the hour.
Meanwhile, real environmental dangers which do not fall under billionaire George Soros and Al Gore’s own new carbon neutral-driven, 'Cap & Trade' pseudo-economy… dangers like deforestation, toxic polluting and the permanent GMO contamination of our natural food supply- are still ruining our ecosystem. So as the elite focus on the faux threat of CO2, actual threats are now labelled ‘off-topic’ at high-minded gatherings like Davos. “Toxic waste? Please, that’s sooo 1990’s. It’s all about global warming now”.
Politics aside, I’m still waiting for Climate Change lobbyists to explain to this writer exactly where the cooling and warming periods of Earth's ancient past came from without humanity’s SUV’s and flatulent livestock. The Dinosaurs Age comes to mind here- as well as pure marvel at Fred Flintstone’s carbon neutral, foot-powered car. Was Fred a green warrior battling climate change, a man way ahead of his time? Fred would bare witness that the earth was many degrees hotter during the Jurassic era. 'Why' is the operative question here. The Flintstones were great entertainment but have a look at the type of UN funded cartoons used to indoctrinate our children about the issue of climate change. Targeting children in a relentless campaign to validate the climate change dogma for the next generation, all the while inducing a genuine ‘Climate Psychosis’ in the process.
Now to the pristine slopes of Davos, Switzerland, where help is on the way. Well, sort of anyway. Last week, the fearless luminaries of our elite corporate, political and media institutions stepped off their private jets, pulled out their AMEX Blackcards and converged on the 2009 World Economic Forum, on their annual mission to try and change both the earth’s and the economy’s... climate. First on the list was how to explain the toxic financial waste dumps in New York, London and errr… Iceland.
