Not too long ago, I wrote three distinct articles discussing 27 total points surrounding the very same subject of the climate cult being dishonest and having inaccuracies in what they choose to call “science” (divided into three parts, with 9 points per part), largely because of Climate Depot’s “Skeptical Climate ‘Talking Points’” that they had passed around in a climate summit that was held in Madrid on December 10th. Following that, I did not really expect to find myself ADDING ONTO those 27 points by unofficially putting in two of my own, but here we are.
Point #1: according to Climate Depot: “Climate Related Deaths Down 99.9% Since 1932”.
Of course, from the outset, a couple of things can be talked about. First of all, what does it mean when they say “climate related deaths”? Well, this is taking things from the Left’s own vocabulary. You see, the climate cult often cries about how hurricanes are “proof” of climate change, or how they are becoming bigger, deadlier and more dangerous, or how droughts are a sign of climate change, etc., etc. Basically, anything that is related to the weather or is generally a NATURAL disaster, the climate cult considers it to be a “climate related” disaster and anyone who dies as a result of said disaster(s) counts as a “climate related death”.
So when Climate Depot uses that term, this is the context in which they are speaking. They are NOT climate-related things, as there is no link between extreme weather and climate change, but for the sake of the argument, we will use the Left’s own words against them.
Which brings us to the second thing to talk about and the most important point within this point. The amount of people who have died from extreme weather events such as hurricanes, droughts, floods, etc. – what the climate cult would call “climate related deaths” in order to scare people into submitting to communism – has PLUMMETED since the year 1932.
The Cato Institute reported back in 2014: “In the decade from 2004 to 2013, worldwide climate-related deaths (including droughts, floods, extreme temperatures, wildfires, and storms) plummeted to a level 88.6 percent below that of the peak decade, 1930 to 1939. The year 2013, with 29,404 reported deaths, had 99.4 percent fewer climate-related deaths than the historic record year of 1932, which had 5,073,283 reported deaths for the same category.”
“The climate catastrophists don’t want you to know this because it reveals how fundamentally flawed their viewpoint is. They treat the global climate system as a stable and safe place we make volatile and dangerous. In fact, the global climate system is naturally volatile and dangerous – we make it livable through development and technology – development and technology powered by the only form of cheap, reliable, scalable reliable energy that can make climate livable for 7 billion people.”
Again, this was just in 2014. In 2018, according to Climate Depot, such “climate related deaths” further dropped to just 5,000, which is a 99.9% decrease since 1932.
As the Cato Institute notes, it is because of our ability to adapt to the climate and build infrastructure that can protect us and keep us safe that we can live in what is, by default, a dangerous planet. Like the Cato Institute said, climate catastrophists, or the climate cult, as I call them, believe the planet is stable, sustainable and safe and we make it dangerous, unstable and unsustainable with our technology and our capitalism. It is utter nonsense meant to sell people on the idea of communism (and unfortunately, it is working pretty well). But the opposite is what is actually the case.
One cannot tell me that, when Jesus and His disciples were on a boat during a storm, that that storm was the result of man-made climate change. Literally the only instance of climate change we see here is JESUS ordaining the wind and the sea to calm down. That is the closest the world has ever come to seeing man-made climate change, and it came from someone who is the Son of God, fully man and fully God (at the same time, but not in the same relationship).
That was roughly 2000 years ago, well before any of the technologies we see today – such as coal-powered engines, A/Cs, and all the other things the climate cult likes to blame for climate change – even existed. In that story, the disciples were scared that they would die, literally asking Jesus: “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” in Mark 4:38. They risked death at the time because they were on a fairly small, wooden boat that would not be able to protect them against such a storm and they were saved by the Lord Himself. In this day and age, we have much bigger and sturdier ships (that can still go down if God ordains it) that can sustain such storms with little problem.
The technological advancements we have made, thanks to the Lord, have allowed us to be better prepared for the naturally hostile environment in which we live. We have much better technology today as opposed to 1932, so it’s no wonder that “climate related” deaths have plummeted so much. But therein lies the dishonesty of the climate cult. They all blame our technology and our capitalism for the “destruction” of the planet when our technology and our capitalism has had the literal opposite effect, allowing for more and more people to survive. Climate cultists like Greta Thunberg “warn” about mass extinction, when nothing could be further from the truth.
But regardless, that’s the first point. Now, onto the second point, which relates to the reason I put “destruction” in quotation marks in the previous paragraph.
Point #2: according to notrickzone.com: “In the last 35 months, 350 peer-reviewed scientific papers have been published containing documented evidence that undermines the popularized conception of a slowly-cooling Earth followed by a dramatic hockey-stick-shaped recent uptick, or an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.”
This sort of relates to one of the points made by the Climate Depot’s “Skeptical Climate ‘Talking Points’” that challenges the idea brought on by the climate cult that there is “consensus” surrounding climate change.
Taking aside the fact that consensus is, itself, not science, as there once was consensus that the Earth was at the center of the universe and that the atom was the smallest thing in the universe, showing how irrelevant consensus actually is in the scientific world, the fact that 350 scientific papers denoting how the climate cult has it very wrong is further proof that there is no actual consensus surrounding this topic.
One paper published on the International Journal of Climatology reconstructed temperature extremes of the last 1200+ years in the northeastern Mediterranean region and found the following:
“[A]n analysis of instrumental temperatures for the period 1955-2013 shows that in northwestern Greece, statistically significant trends in summer temperature are absent… The cooling trend from 1950-1976, previously reported throughout the Mediterranean basin, was followed by an, so far, insignificant warming… Our reconstruction mirrors this absence of a clear positive trend at decadal scale… In total, 110 cold and 48 warm extremes appear in the 100SP reconstruction, and 105 cold and 57 warm extremes in the 10SP reconstruction… The year 1240 was the warmest summer, with reconstructed anomalies of +3.13°C and +2.64°C in the 100SP and 10SP reconstructions, respectively. The two coldest summers in the 100SP reconstruction are 1217 and 1884 with anomalies of -3.17°C and -3.61°C, respectively… The elimination of decadal trends in the 10SP reconstruction causes events to appear more evenly distributed. However, over the past 450 years the occurrence of warm temperature extremes is substantially less frequent compared to preceding centuries.”
In other words, as far as the Mediterranean goes, the temperatures seem to act fairly cyclically, with warmer and colder summers throughout, with no real significant trend that would point to any sort of major global warming or cooling. If this is the case for the Mediterranean, it’s a safe assumption that it’s fairly similar for the rest of the planet.
There are also other studies that show something similar: different warm and cold cycles either in different regions or in general. For the sake of brevity, I won’t quote other papers, but if you want to read them yourself, go to the link to notrickzone.com.
Basically, all of these papers contradict both the notion of a consensus and the notion that we are severely warming up our planet through our technological advancements and our capitalism.
All of that is utter b.s., but we knew that for some time now. It’s a safe assumption that whatever the climate cult claims, the opposite is probably true.
