How to debunk the Climate-Scaremongers! by The Elephant's Child

Much of the mischief going on in our government, the inflation, bad regulations, unemployment, high taxes, is based on a faulty belief that “climate change” is an upcoming disaster for our Earth. I’m sure you remember the autistic child from Sweden who came to the United States on a sailboat to lecture the United Nations on the matter. All sorts of publicity and she even got her picture painted on some building in San Francisco, and did actually scold the U.N. Lots of publicity.

The alarm seems to have originated in Davos. Christiana Figueres, who was at the time the General Secretary of the IPCC, held a press conference, I think it was in 2013, and explained to the assembled reporters that addressing climate change was the world’s best chance of saving the world from the ravages of Capitalism. The reputable scientists keep explaining that the climate of the Earth is controlled by the Sun, and there is no problem, but a remarkable number of people seem to be true believers, probably never have read anything about climate at all. They just heard it was a big problem and we have to DO SOMETHING right now.

President Joe Biden is a true believer. He eliminated the XL Pipeline that was building to take Canadian oil to the Gulf of Mexico after it was refined in American Refineries to customers all over the world. In eliminating the pipeline with a stroke of his pen, Biden also eliminated several thousand high paying jobs, and accomplished nothing at all. Now he wants to build offshore wind farms on each of our coasts.

When the U.S. first started paying attention to the claims of disastrous climate change, grants went out from the federal government to university science labs all over the country, which was a very big deal indeed. Meant new equipment, grants, assistants. prestige for quiet departments slumbering along. They quickly fired up their computers, entered everything they knew about climate, which wasn’t really very much, and some intelligent guesses, and some possible, and started cranking out “information”. CO2, carbon dioxide, became the bogeyman, and the results were wind farms, solar arrays, huge costs, Did you know that it costs something like $35,000 just to take down a wind turbine, and nothing cam be recycled, so it all has to go in the landfill. Wind turbines and solar arrays cannot produce the energy needed by a modern industrial society. If you are interested, enter “Solyndra” in the space over Bob Hope’s head in the sidebar, to see what one disastrous effort entailed.

CO2, carbon dioxide, which is supposed to be the big bogeyman, is a natural fertilizer for plants. Helps to feed the hungry and make crops all over the world more bountiful. This is where my previous piece on the obligation to read comes in. Patrick Moore, who was one of the founders of Greenpeace, says: “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life. He has a dandy book out titled Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom”that you will not only enjoy, but will give you the needed armor against the misguided panic afflicted. Did you know that there were once giant camels roaming Canada’s arctic islands?

ADDENDUM: Ideally, everyone would buy an extra copy to send to the president or to their congressmen, but I suspect you are not feeling that generous. You might, however, let your congressmen know of the existence of this little book, and suggest that reading it would benefit their potential reelection.
