Read here how the idiotic (man-caused) global warming believers attack us with their abundant lies and distortions:
It is true fracking will not impact global warming. But this is because (man caused) global warming does not even exist. It is instead a figment of evil liberals' vivid imaginations, a means to their hoped-for political ends.
RE: "It is true fracking will not impact global warming."
I have a small disagreement with that statement.
If man made global warming exists (not that I believe that it does) ..... fracing would impact global warming.
Natural gas (released through fracing) displaces more potentially polluting sources of energy .... such as coal, solar panels and wind turbines.
Clean, green natural gas .... burn it and you get H20 (which we need to live) and CO2 (plant food).
Plants turn CO2 into complex carbohydrates; some of which is people food, some of which is animal food, some of which is lumber and some of which is termite food (you can't win everything).
We breathe in oxygen, and exhale CO2 .... plants breathe in CO2 and exhale oxygen .... if CO2 is good for plants, it is good for us ... plants and people, we need each other .... and we both need CO2.
I do not believe that an overwhelming number of climate scientists truly agree with man made global warming. I do believe that an overwhelming number of climate scientists live in fear of losing the lucrative grants FOR studying global warming. Unlike many I do remember the '70's and the majority of scientists that were warning that fossil fuels were causing the current GLOBAL COOLING and who were foretelling of the coming ice age. The difference between then and now is that some have determined that the current prediction could be made profitable.
RE: “This "Jackass Science" is in fact believed by the overwhelming majority of climate scientists, and most of the world.”
False statement; this is discredited propaganda.
This statement has been falsely made; (man-caused) global warming has been declared to be ‘Settled Science”, in an attempt to stifle legitimate debate. In true science, very little is ever considered “settled’.
The fact is there is NO overwhelming majority scientists who believe in (man-caused) global warming.
RE: “But it is unwise to be dismissive of rather compelling, although incomplete, evidence in support of climate change induced by human activity.”
Unfortunately there is NO compelling evidence in support of climate change induced by human activity.
Climate on Earth has been changing for almost 5 Billion years; and will doubtless continue to change (whether we continue to be on the channel, or not).
First they called it “Global Warming”; the problem is, the warming ceased 15/16 years ago.
So, they next started referring to “Climate Change”; but there is really no evidence that climate was changing in any consistent manner.
So, now they want to refer to it as “Climate Disruption” …. With that vague terminology a warm Summer can be attributed to the nebulous term (“Climate Disruption”).
With that vague terminology a Cold Winter can be attributed to the nebulous term (“Climate Disruption”).
With that vague terminology a cyclical drought in California can be attributed to the nebulous term (“Climate Disruption”).
With that vague terminology a cyclical wet Monsoon in Arizona and New Mexico can be attributed to the nebulous term (“Climate Disruption”).
There are cycles that have been identified …. The 30+/- year cycles are potentially associated with periodic cycles in the output of energy from the Sun.
Reminds me a bit of the decade (1980’s) when the overwhelming majority scientists believed that we were going into a new ice age (we were in a cycle of cooling).
Follow the money; the disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are often those that are soliciting or benefitting from Government Research Grants.
Other disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are often Politicians using alarmism for nefarious purposes.
Other supposed disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are in it for the money (Al Gore, Goldman Sacks); getting rich (and richer) on a ‘con’.
Other supposed disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are Russian and Middle Eastern oil producers; who wish to stifle North American competition.
Other disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are the gullible; those prone to believe in a need for self-flagellation as contrition for all of mankind’s sundry failings.
Other supposed disciples of (man-caused) Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption are those seeing such constructs as ‘carbon credits’.
By and large, the Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption Alarmists appear to be a bunch of ‘sick puppies’.
Thank you Jack-well put. As you said "follow the money".
RE: "thousands of loonie scientists who are pushing this crazy notion that man might be capable of damaging the environment!"
Now, you "have hit the nail on the head".
Happy to see that you now recognize that it is just a minority of 'loonie' alarmists (assisted by con artists) behind the false religion of 'Climate Disruption'. They are not truly scientists; they are simply acolytes of a new cult/religion.
OBTW, the railroad industry (exemplified by Barak Hussein Obama'sr BFF, Warren Buffet) is pushing against the clean green Keystone XL pipeline, so that they can ship oil by dirty dangerous rail. Follow the money, it leads back to Obama, Buffet, Al Gore and their Wall Street friends and supporters.
The left have been conned .... I believe that the phrase they use to describe their supporters in private is 'useful idiots'.
Stephen, happy to see that you have been educated and now see the light and now support clean green natural gas ... fracing for America's future; a future that will support the middle class.
Jack Straw, Nice write ! Thank you....
