When I was born there was no such thing as climate change science. When it was first mentioned in the press I was open minded and followed it. Since then my opinion on the subject has not been positive. By the time Al Gore was flying around on a jumbo jet telling everyone to ride bicycles my mind was made up. If he truly believed what he was saying he would be using a different mode of transportation.
Then there is the obvious lack of peer review. Anyone who does not believe in the man made global warming theory is black listed. And there are plenty. They do not get funded for any research. It is highly political. Even Albert Einstein was subject to peer review. When he released his Theory Of Relativity a book named 100 Authors Against Einstein came out. He retorted “If I were wrong one author would have been enough”.
In the 1950's a Doctor released a paper stating trans fats were causing all kinds of health issues. He was ignored. 30 years later they realized he was right and trans fats were banned. Science is neither easy or fast. Melding science and politics is a really bad move.
I am sure there are several occupations where you can be wrong 80% of the time and you get to keep your job. Three I can think of off the top of my head are Politicians, Meteorologists and Journalists. Okay I will throw in Mechanics for good measure too. Too many of them are glorified parts swappers.
When the climate gurus can get the weather right here locally next week I thinks folks will take them more seriously. In the mean time I have no doubt we will never hear the end of this climate change hysteria. The bottom line is what exactly do they propose we do about it? Fortunately those of us here in the United States can watch the Green New Deal unfold in Europe and see what happens when bad science becomes bad policy.
Watch this closely. They have no concept of how science, industry or even civilization works. This is poor leadership on parade! Passenger vehicles are a small percentage of the fossil fuels used. Before you even turn the key on your EV it already has a huge carbon foot print due to the mining required to produce the battery. I'm no ecological expert but I am pretty sure that when when of those EV batteries catch fire it is not good for the environment.
Maybe the EU passing this crazy Green New Deal is a good thing as the rest of the world will see how it impacts ordinary citizens. In effect, they will not be able to afford a car. I know people who can not afford a decent car now! It restricts developing nations like Africa to burning wood for energy. But what do I know? I am following it all as best I can and I am not hearing anyone say anything very positive about it. Not people from the industry side of things any way. They are using words like delusional.
In the mean time just remember the predictions were originally all of the dire consequences of global climate change were supposed to already be in effect. Global warming is real. But what would you expect coming out of an ice age? Some scientists say it ended ten thousand years ago, some believe we are still in it. It lasted for 2.5 million years so by global climate cycle standards that was like last month. By the time our global temperature starts cooling again I hope our science is better. And that the global climate change alarmists will be long forgotten.
