Personal CO2 Lessons for Ocasio-Cortez
One has to be a fool today to believe in the drivel the international press puts out about global warming and how the world will end in 12 years if we don’t do something really stupid about it, like geoengineering, or destroying modern economies to arrest carbon dioxide output, which Bill Gates is all for, now that he has everything.
It is true, we are in the middle of dramatic and violent climate change but it has nothing to do with CO2 and man-made global warming. However, we have bartenders, who know more than scientists, today telling the rest of us what to do about climate change. The Green New Deal, which was introduced last month by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., failed in the Senate after Republicans pushed the controversial bill for a vote. Not one senator voted in support. Ocasio-Cortez is getting a lot of airtime, the press just loves to have someone to rock the boat. Yes, America has never been more in need of change, and us baby boomers have really betrayed the following generations, but she would lead the country exactly in the wrong direction.
Before we get into the science of CO2, which Ocasio-Cortez thinks she knows all about, lets just for a moment look at the recent weather and the climate of the world from this past winter. We are well into spring, but winter is still very much with us. Even if present patterns continue, and it snows into summer, there is a large group of people, including Ocasio-Cortez, who will never give up their assumptions about climate change. They would rather die than admit they are wrong meaning there is no limit to their arrogance.
Most of us know by now that climate is one thing and weather another. At least that is what the press has tried to teach the president but when we still have blizzards in April one has to scratch one’s head and wonder. With the biggest glacier in the northern hemisphere thickening by 150 feet a year over the last two years we have to wonder. With the north pole is full of ice late into spring, just slightly below the 40 year average, we have to wonder.
Greenland’s biggest glacier, the Jakobshavn glacier, began advancing rapidly (almost 26 feet per day!) in 2016. Airborne altimetry and satellite imagery show that the glacier is advancing about 1.8 miles and ice thickening nearly 130 feet annually, according to NASA. This was published in Nature Geoscience. Yet The Guardian and other publications still reports on vanishing glaciers.
Another clear demonstration of the increasing cold of the last two years comes from The Detroit Free Press which reported Lake Superior was 94 percent ice covered as of April 5th. At this time last year, Superior was about half covered, and only 7 percent of the lake was covered at this time in 2017. Sure looks like a warming trend!
Personal CO2 Lessons for Ocasio-Cortez
Does Ocasio-Cortez know more about CO2 than the following scientists?
Prof. Don J. Easterbrook said, “Global warming (i.e, the warming since 1977) is over. The minute increase of anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere (0.008%) was not the cause of the warming—it was a continuation of natural cycles that occurred over the past 500 years. The PDO cool mode has replaced the warm mode in the Pacific Ocean, virtually assuring us of about 30 years of global cooling, perhaps much deeper than the global cooling from about 1945 to 1977. Just how much cooler the global climate will be during this cool cycle is uncertain. Recent solar changes suggest that it could be fairly severe, perhaps more like the 1880 to 1915 cool cycle than the more moderate 1945-1977 cool cycles. A more drastic cooling, similar to that during the Dalton and Maunder minimums, could plunge the Earth into another Little Ice Age, but only time will tell if that is likely.”
Dr. Willie Soon, astrophysicist and Geo-scientist at the Solar and Stellar Physics Division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said, “Saying the climate system is completely dominated by how much carbon dioxide we have in the system is crazy – completely wrong. Carbon dioxide is not the major driver for the earth/climate system. Temperatures are going down, but CO2 levels are still going up. It’s close to being insane to try to keep insisting these changes in carbon dioxide are going to create all of the disasters that politicians and doomsayers are trying to tell us. Climate is totally, completely dependent on what the sun is doing to the system. The sun is the major driver of the earth climate system.”
“Saying the climate system is completely dominated by how much carbon dioxide we have in the system is crazy – completely wrong,” says Dr. Soon. “Carbon dioxide is not the major driver for the earth/climate system. Now temperatures are going down, but CO2 levels are still going up. It’s close to being insane to try to keep insisting these changes in carbon dioxide are going to create all of the disasters. They say, “no matter what the sun does, it is not important.”
We do have a lot of insane/arrogant people who think they know more than leading scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. The elite owned press have done a wonderful job of teaching the masses how not to think, how not to be reasonable, and how to believe everything they are told. Most conservatives I know fortunately seem to be immune from this.
The main issue with CO2 is not global warming its health and life itself. Carbon dioxide like air, water and oxygen is essential for life and health in general and specifically it holds the key to resolving asthma, cancer and many other chronic diseases. Carbon dioxide is an essential constituent of tissue fluids and as such should be maintained at an optimum level in the blood. The gas therefore is needed to supplement various anaesthetic and oxygenation mixtures for use under special conditions such as cardio-pulmonary by-pass surgery and the management of renal dialysis.
Carbon dioxide is a nutrient as well as a product of respiration and energy production in the cells and its lack or deficiency is of itself a starting point for different disturbances in the body.
