Climate change remains one of the most hotly debated scientific issues today. Though we don’t deny that it’s happening, we also recognize that it is, at least to a certain extent, a natural part of the Earth’s fluctuations.
The question then has become, to what extent is the climate change we are currently experiencing the result of human activity (greenhouse gases), and how much of it is inevitable?
While the mainstream media presents this as a clearcut case, ridiculing or outright ignoring scientists who question our impact, the issue is far more complex than we are being led to believe, and much is still in doubt. There are other factors we need to take into consideration.
Senator James Inofhe, chairman of the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, is a good person to start with if we want to get the objective story on climate change.
Not long ago, he appeared on the “The Eric Metaxas Show,” warning that “our kids are being brainwashed in school” when it comes to climate change.
He recounted a moment where his “own granddaughter came home one day” and disputed his claims that climate change is a myth.
He goes on to say that he “did some checking” and that “the stuff they teach our kids nowadays, they are brainwashing – you have to un-brainwash them when they get out.”
In the video below, Inhofe explains his stance and provides a list of hundreds of world-renowned scientists who have contacted him in support of it.
Thousands of Scientists Want To Debate Human Impact On Climate Change
The time of new energy is here, and we must transition to a cleaner, more harmonious way of living. Our way of life must be to protect the planet and all its life, not to destroy it for the sake of economic growth.
We have technologies that could make this transition simple and relatively painless, but bureaucratic red tape and other factors have prevented their quick emergence onto the market. The prevailing energy models are, simply put, destroying our planet and poisoning everything living on it.
Whether human activity is causing climate change or not is almost irrelevant in the face of the havoc its wreaking on the planet otherwise.
There are other factors to consider when it comes to climate change — space weather, solar cycles, Earth’s history of climate change, etc. — but the fact remains, things need to change.
Below is an excellent snippet of a lecture given by Richard Lindzen, one of the world’s top experts in the field and lead author of “Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,” Chapter 7 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third Assessment Report on climate change.
He knows that all climate science we receive is IPCC United Nations science.
One of the scientists mentioned on the senator’s list, in this video, he talks about the politics of climate science and the manipulation of data — something that plagues all fields of science today.
You may be surprised to learn that human impact on climate change is not well established in other scientific literature, only government scientific literature. Climate change is no joke, but how much it has been affected by human activity and greenhouse gases emissions is still unclear.
There is a lot of discrepancy between various scientists, in part because there are so many other factors to consider when measuring it. The climate has always been changing, for one thing, and Richard Lindzen is one out of thousands of renowned scientists in the field trying to tell this to the world.
Yet mainstream news outlets refuse to share their concerns regarding the politicization of climate science. What’s worse, academic journals won’t even accept their papers for publication.
One out of many examples comes from Swedish climatologist and professor Lennard Bengtsson, a researcher at the University of Reading, former director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, and winner of the 51st IMO Prize of the World Meteorological Organization for his pioneering work in numerical weather prediction.
He is perhaps the most distinguished scientist yet to change his perspective on the global warming issue. Four of the world’s foremost climate scientists (one of them being Bengtsson) had their recent research rejected by one of the world’s top academic journals.
The paper suggested that the climate might be less sensitive to greenhouse gases than had been claimed by the IPCC. You can read more about that story here.
Going Against The Grain
The moment you consider the opposing side, especially if you are a person with a distinguished background like the people above, you will be ridiculed by mass media. Those who put their faith in the media will then brand you as crazy or a conspiracy theorist.
This is not to say that we can in good conscience continue treating the planet as we have; we are messing up our environment, and we need to change to clean energy technology (which exists) right away, but we also need to recognize the political agenda driving this conversation. It’s always about fear.
It’s also important to mention that geoengieering operational programs are never brought up in this debate.
Senator Inhofe is just one of many brave scientists speaking up and challenging mainstream views, even in the face of ridicule and criticism.
The fact that there are thousands of scientists calling for a debate on the human impact on global climate should make it clear that this issue is far from resolved, yet the average person has no idea this is happening, because the media only offers one story and one voice.
Despite these concerns, it’s utterly clear that the way we do things here with regards to energy generation, electricity, and more is destroying our planet.
I personally support new energy technologies, and I know of groundbreaking technologies that could completely revolutionize our planet, but the real revolution starts with us. We can’t operate from a place of fear. We must instead come together and work for the common good.
Here is a great quote to end off with, as this ‘invisible government’ has infiltrated the highest levels of science, not just media and the newspapers, but academic journals as well.
John F. Hylan was Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925 and he was famously quoted as saying:
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation…
“The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties… [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.
“They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.
“It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” (source) (source)
