Stick to your guns, President Trump. Right now, today, we are living through one of the coldest periods in geologic history.
Refusing to let the wool be pulled over his eyes, U.S President Donald Trump rejected the conclusion of a government climate report compiled by 13 federal agencies.
The study concluded – very mistakenly, I believe – that climate change was man-made, and would have devastating effects on the world’s economy unless addressed soon.
The study says “Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities.” (Italics added)
“At any point in the history of modern civilization.” What does that mean?
It means we’re supposed to ignore all of the rest of the millions upon millions of years of climate history.
It means we’re supposed to ignore the fact the the earth has been much warmer than today throughout the great preponderance of those millions of years, all without any help from humans.
But now, based on a report that covers only a minuscule window of time, we’re supposed to destroy civilization in order to “save” it?
The fact is that it is colder right now than throughout almost all of history.
Look at this chart. The blue line shows temperatures for the past 600 million years.
Look at the far right side of the chart (today), and you’ll see that blue line plunge to its lowest point in almost 250 million years.
There have been only two periods in the past 600 million years when it has been colder than today.
Right now, today, we are living through one of the coldest periods in geologic history. The last few year’s minor rise in temperature is too minuscule to even show up on the chart.
Anyone who says we’re enduring “unprecedented global warming” is either lying or woefully misinformed.
Stick to your guns, President Trump!
