I am no stranger to citing my own work in the past, but this is the first time that I base an entire article around an article that I have written previously. The reason for this is simple and you will see soon enough.
The article in question is the following: “Climate Change Will Be Unstoppable In 3 Years, According To MSM.”
In that article, I pointed out how a UK Independent article talked about what a prescient need it was for countries to adhere to the goals of the Paris climate accord and how we just have to make “significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions or face the prospect of dangerous global warming.”
The article cites “experts” who claimed that “’entire ecosystems’ were already beginning to collapse, summer sea ice was disappearing in the Arctic and coral reefs were dying from the heat.”
I don’t expect anyone reading this to remember that I literally wrote that verbatim in the first article, and even back then, I knew what a load of crap this all was.
First, of course, was the fact that “entire ecosystems” were “already beginning to collapse” which is nonsense.
Then, there was the “summer sea ice disappearing in the Arctic” which has been proven false since then. In another article, which is far more recent, I mentioned that the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) confirmed, back in November of 2018, that “glaciers have largely maintained their area since 2012.” And while glaciers are a bit different from summer sea ice, glaciers at least make up some part of sea ice and there has been no proof that they are melting at worrying rates (certainly not at the rates the Left claims).
Finally, there’s the “coral reefs dying from the heat” part, which I did not cover in the original article. However, that one is overhyped baloney as well. Corals do, indeed, die amidst heat waves because their hard outer skeleton causes them to basically be cooked alive. However, as with other creatures, corals are capable of adapting for survival. And back in late 2019, scientists found corals which were previously thought to have died off completely as a result of heat stress.
According to Breitbart: “A quarter of the coral cover of Spain’s Columbretes Islands was lost to a particularly extreme heat wave in 2003… But the researchers found that in 38 percent of the impacted colonies, the polyps (miniscule creatures which make up the corals) had devised a survival strategy: shrinking their dimensions, partly abandoning their original skeleton, and gradually, over a period of several years, growing back and starting a new skeleton. They were then able to gradually re-colonize dead areas through budding.”
So the idea that the only way for coral reefs to be saved is by significantly reducing greenhouse emissions (that is, your emissions, not that of the ruling class) is erroneous. God created His creatures to be able to adapt to different situations. He guides even the ones which have no brains and function entirely through “instinct”, if you will.
Like with the regrowing fauna and flora in Chernobyl, God created nature to be adaptable (micro-evolution is a concept far more believable and observable than nonsense like species-to-species evolution). Likewise, God created corals to be able to survive and adapt even things which normally would kill them off. It takes time, sure, but the reefs are regrowing and it certainly has nothing to do with the greenhouse gas emissions of any or all countries.
At any rate, let’s get to the meat and potatoes of this article.
I think you already know roughly why I’m bringing up this old article of mine. That UK Independent article predicted that we had three years to reverse course or we would begin to see some catastrophic and dire effects of global warming. Essentially, that we had three years (thankfully, AOC found another nine years for us to live, probably using Dominion machines) to deal with “man-made climate change” or we would die.
Well, it’s been three and a half years since that prediction and we are not, at any capacity, under threat of catastrophic global warming. We’re still in winter and the temperature outside my house is around the mid-40° F; Miami, Los Angeles and other sea-side cities are not inundated; the ice caps are not melting; the polar bears are fine; the coral reefs, as in the case of Spain’s, are regrowing to one extent or another; and, perhaps most flabbergasting of all for these morons to hear, entire ecosystems are not collapsing.
Not a single one of the things that these grifters have predicted has come to pass. And now, we can add another thing to it.
In June of 2017, far-Left “experts” predicted that we only had three years to significantly reduce greenhouse emissions worldwide else we would be at a “point of no return” regarding global warming. Fast-forward three and a half years and you have articles like “World is not adapting swiftly enough for climate crisis impacts: UN.” Well, seeing as we only had three years left to live three years ago, I hardly think there’s much point in adapting to it now, is there?
Three and a half years after they claimed we only had three years to deal with emissions and they are still pulling some of the same bullcrap from before. This is not at all surprising, of course. Back in 2006, Al Gore made a similar prediction that we only had 10 years to deal with climate change. The expiration date for that was nearly five years ago, but they keep going back to the “Doomsday Clock” well.
The UK Independent article claimed that, since the 1880s, the temperature of the world has risen by one degree Celsius, supposedly because of human activity and greenhouse gas emissions. Thing is that none of the things that the Left typically blames for climate change – cars, planes, A/Cs, etc. – were widely available back in the 1880s. If the change began from that point forth, something had to have caused it and it can’t have been the typical things which produce emissions.
Further, over the three and a half years since that article, I have repeatedly covered the fact that the world has seen numerous periods of temperature changes, from increase to decrease, at different points in time. The world’s temperatures were seen rising during the Roman Warming Period, the Medieval Warming Period, and most recently, the Modern Warming Period. And, again, the Left cannot blame the typical things that they blame for the warming periods which took place before those things were invented.
It is simply a demonstrable lie that humanity has any sort of say in the temperature of the world. This is as true today as it was three and a half years ago or any period before then as well as any period from this point on. The only reason the Left peddles this crap is because it’s one of the best ways for them to try and convince people to give up their rights and freedoms. Well, at least until the Chinese coronavirus came along. We have far more willingly given up our freedoms in a year than we had over the last few decades since the Left has been peddling this unscientific nonsense. And it didn’t even take a full year to accomplish that. We gave up our freedoms pretty much the second we were asked to, under the belief that we would remain safe as a result.
Ben Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” We gave up that essential liberty for safety from a virus which is only temporarily bad. What does that say about us?
At any rate, mark that prediction as yet another one which, expectedly, did not come to fruition. Three and a half years after we only had three years to deal with climate change and we are perfectly fine.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
