Global Warming stopped about 18 years ago in 1998. Ever since then, the earth’s temperature has been relatively stable. The period of Global Warming from 1980 to 1998 was preceded by ten years of Global Cooling. The Time Magazine covers and portion of an article about global cooling shown above document this. Did mankind stop building factories and cars in the 1970s? We must have for the Global Warming theory to hold true!!
The truth is that the heat output from the sun varies all by itself and it greatly exceeds any effect mankind has on the planet. We know about sun spots appearing on the sun in a roughly 11 year cycle. Well, there are less obvious cycles of the sun which we experience in the form of warm spells and ice ages when the sun changes its heat output.
The Global Warming cult is all about panicking the population and getting billions of dollars in government grants for left-wing Global Warming “scientists” to study global warming and to tell us that we all need to get rid of our automobiles.
As if that isn’t enough, Global Warming cultists are telling us not to believe our eyes or memories of the recent past!!
In a stunningly dishonest proclamation, the Global Warming crowd expects us to think that the year 2015 was the hottest year ever. An article in the New York Times expends what little credibility it may have had claiming “Scientists reported Wednesday that 2015 was the hottest year in the historical record by far, breaking a mark set only the year before — a burst of heat that has continued into the new year and is roiling weather patterns all over the world.”
I don’t know where the person, who wrote that was living, but the US had a bitterly cold winter from 2014 to 2015, that lasted well into April for much of the country. It was a little warmer than usual on the West Coast, but nothing approaching record highs. Last summer was relatively mild for most of the U.S.
If Los Angeles had seen 120 degree high temps, and if the Mid-West dried up into a dust bowl, and Miami started baking at 110 degrees, then it would be a lot more believable that 2015 was a record hot year.
The New York Times however is telling us to believe something that was clearly not the case. This reminds me of a quote from George Orwell’s book, “1984” which goes “In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?”
