The climate has been changing for billions of years – Buzz Aldrin

“I’m not in favor of … depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today.” – Buzz Aldrin

The climate has been changing for billions of years

By John of Cloverdale WA

“This year’s grand marshal (at the NYC Veterans Day parade) was astronaut Buzz Aldrin, himself a veteran of the Korean War. The 87-year-old is a Montclair, New Jersey native.

As grand marshal, he cruised in a convertible with a driver. As an astronaut, it was Apollo 11 he piloted to become the second man on the moon. He was honored Saturday for the many other missions he flew in the U.S. Air Force.”

Buzz Aldrin quote:

“I think the climate has been changing for billions of years. If it’s warming now, it may cool off later. I’m not in favor of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today. I’m not necessarily of the school that we are causing it all, I think the world is causing it.”

Well said Buzz.

  1. Wise words from a war and NASA veteran.
    A NASA man from the days when NASA was a research facility for probing the further reaches of our universe, national security, and expanding humanity’s knowledge, and not it’s current iteration as an introspective, social outreach program for lefty political advocates.

    • At 87 I doubt very much that he thinks he has much of a career ahead of him.

      If he is deleted from history books because of speaking up… that just proves they are NOT history books, but propaganda.

  2. This might just set the cat amongst the pigeons.
    A certain hockey graph manufacturer may have mistaken air based geothermal heat in the Antarctic for CO2 based warming and then barked up the wrong tree.

    New map of Antarctic geothermal heat suggests Steig & Mann 2009 weren’t measuring ‘global warming’

    Extract:
    This is quite interesting. Remember the claim in on the front cover of Nature in 2009 by Steig and Mann that Antarctica was warming, thanks to that “special Mannian PCA math sauce” that was applied to air temperature data to smear surface temperature trends over the entire continent? It was dashed by climate skeptics who wrote a paper. It was accepted for publication and disproved (in my opinion) by a team of credible skeptics that wrote a counter-paper. But, there’s an interesting twist thanks to new and surprising data; Steig and Mann may have captured surface air temperature trends in the exact same areas that have been identified as geothermal hot spots.

  3. Wonder if Buzz would start a “buzz” if a disclosure concerning his venture to Antarctic?
    Oops, just thinking out loud, heh heh.

  4. Oil and gas are finite resources. If the climate warms we will need to go to solar and wind before we exhaust oil and gas. If it cools we will need to go to solar and wind before we exhaust oil and gas. If it stays the same we will need to go to solar and wind before we exhaust oil and gas.

    Remaining dependent on fossil fuels into the future is not an option

  5. ‘THE CLIMATE HAS BEEN CHANGING FOR BILLIONS OF YEARS” . . . true.
    But that still does not mean that we have an infinite supply of fossil fuels . . . BP . . . British Petroleum . . . reports its estimate that existing oil reserves will support current production levels until circa 2050 . . . that’s just 33 years away . . .
    The other twist is that solar and wind are becoming cheaper than oil and gas, and in many places cheaper than coal, so the economics will drive the evolution to solar and wind no matter what the environmental effects are or are not.
    The idea that we will have a petroleum-centric economy 100 years from now, maybe 50 years from now, is delusional.
    Oblivious to the facts of economics and technology, a kind of nostalgia for the familiar past, as if the past can last forever.

    • Wind and solar LOL, you have to have an IQ of about 2 to actually believe wind and solar can ever supply any meaningful amount of global demand for power.
