Sun’s radiation patterns are responsible for temperature change, not CO2 levels
First it was Global Cooling in the seventies, “a new Ice Age.” Then it was Global Warming. Now, because they gave up having any real knowledge on the subject, it’s Climate Change or, to say it with more conviction, Climate Disruption.
Antarctica was not always an ice sheet. In a number of periods in its distant past it had a moderate and temperate climate, and was covered in forests -National Geographic. If that isn’t climate change, I don’t know what is. We learned in history, at least some of us did, that George Washington’s men suffered terribly during the winter at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. That’s because during the years between 1300 and 1850 we had a mini ice age. The period between 1940 and 1975 saw the ‘Little Cooling.’ When that was over a moderate warming developed. This warming has turned into a war cry. What the Al Gores out there do not understand is that this is by no means the first warming of the planet. Millennia ago temperatures had been higher than they are today. Who or what should we blame for all this continuous climate change?
To Al Gore’s disappointment, many scientists, including Gore’s climate ally, Professor James Hansen, have recently conceded that the sun’s radiation patterns are responsible for temperature change, not CO2 levels. Nevertheless, the climate bandwagon rolls on. Al Gore and others rake in the cash, still maintaining that cow farts, airplanes (except private jets), automobiles and modern civilization in general need to be eliminated.
The fiddling of temperature data is one of the greatest scandals in scientific history
The climate fanatics should really arrest and detain the nearest volcano. The earth farts all the time, producing ash, volcanic gases, carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide, changing weather patterns and climate. Considering all the massive volcanic eruptions in history and antiquity, the earth is doing just fine, thank you.
If climate change and pollution, because of breathing and industrialization, were the drama, they would be all over China, Mongolia, Botswana, Russia, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, India, Egypt, Pakistan, Iran, Kuwait, and the UAE. They account for most of the man-made pollution in the world. No, they are coming for us, the most successful Constitutional Republic in history, and, might I add, Western Civilization, not to build us up, but to tear us down.
[I highly recommend this book if you are interested in the topic - this is actual science]
The authors explain their theory that sub-atomic particles from exploded stars have more effect on the climate than manmade CO2. Their conclusion stems from Svensmark's research which has shown the previously unsuspected role that cosmic rays play in creating clouds. During the last 100 years cosmic rays became scarcer because unusually vigorous action by the Sun batted away many of them. Fewer cosmic rays meant fewer clouds--and a warmer world. The theory, simply put here but explained in fascinating detail, emerges at a time of intense public and political concern about climate change. Motivated only by their concern that science must be trustworthy, Svensmark and Calder invite their readers to put aside their preconceptions about manmade global warming and look afresh at the role of Nature in this hottest of world issues.

Fantastic rant from Sky News Australia…
To all the school kids going on strike for climate change: You’re the first generation who’ve required air conditioning in every classroom, you want TV in every room and your classes are all computerized. You spend all day and night on electronic devices. More than ever you don’t walk or ride bikes to school, but you arrive in caravans of private cars that choke suburban roads and worsen rush hour traffic.
You’re the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever and update perfectly good, expensive luxury items just to stay trendy. Your entertainment comes from electric devices, furthermore the people driving your protests are the same people who insist on artificially inflating the population growth through immigration, which increases the need for energy, manufacturing and transport. The more people we have, the more forests and bush land we clear and the more of the environment that’s destroyed.
How about this, tell your teachers to switch off the air conditioning, walk or ride your bike to school, switch off your devices and read a book, make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food.
Nope, none of this will happen, BECAUSE you’re selfish, badly educated, virtue signaling little turds inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a Noble Cause while they indulge themselves in western luxury and an unprecedented quality of life.
