I have talked a lot about climate change over the years and have made many arguments, with some of the most prominent ones being that, apart from lack of evidence to suggest anthropogenic climate change is real, there is no possible way for there to be man-made climate change as there have been two other particularly warm periods in human history apart from the modern one: the Roman Warm Period and the Medieval Warm Period. Further evidence of this is shown in two new studies looking at old trees in the mountainous regions of Greece.
One of the studies’ abstract reads as follows: “The Mediterranean has been identified as particularly vulnerable to climate change, yet a high-resolution temperature reconstruction extending back into the Medieval Warm Period is still lacking. Here we present such a record of warm season temperature variability back to 730 CE. The reconstruction is derived from 192 annually resolved, latewood density series from ancient living and relict Pinus heldreichii trees…”
“Although the recent 1985-2014 period was the warmest 30-year interval (+0.71°C) since the eleventh century, temperatures during the ninth to tenth centuries were even warmer, including the warmest reconstructed 30-year period from 876-905 (+0.78°C).”
In other words, not that this ought to come as a surprise to many of you if you’ve been reading my material for quite some time now, there is no evidence to suggest anthropogenic climate change is at play here. There is climate change, no doubt. This is a dynamic world and our climate is just as dynamic. It’s the way that God created the planet, after all. Of course there is climate change. However, one cannot possibly blame humanity for climate change at all.
Taking aside the fact that the climate was always going to be naturally dynamic, the things that the Left often points to as the reason for us “killing our planet” cannot be pointed to for the warming periods of centuries and millennia past. Things like air conditioners, automobiles, air travel, sea travel, oil drilling, the gas industry, manufacturing, etc. are inventions of the industrial revolution; products of recent time. As such, it would be totally unrealistic and illogical to argue that these things contributed to warm periods of the past (which is why the Left avoids this topic like the Plague).
Man only began air travel (barely) a little more than a century ago; the same goes for automobile travel; neither of which were commonly used back then.
One cannot possibly blame automobiles for the warming period experienced in the Medieval Warm Period, much less the Roman one. There were no cars in the 10th century. There were no air conditioners during the age of the Roman Empire. And yet, warm periods existed and were prevalent at the time.
The aforementioned study also makes mention of the cold periods that have occurred throughout recent history, such as the Little Ice Age and its coldest 30-year period of 997-1026 CE (-1.63°C). Throughout the history of this planet, the world has gone through periods of warmth and cold. Neither of which are peculiar, neither of which are unprecedented and neither of which are particularly harmful to the survival of the planet itself, the fauna and flora, or humanity. If they were, we wouldn’t even be here to have this discussion in the first place.
Another study also took a look at tree rings from places like Scotland, Scandinavia, Continental Europe and the Pyrenees. According to that study, the 1930s and 40s were just as warm or even warmer in those regions than they are today.
As you can see from the image above (ignoring the stuff to the side), we see that, over the past 150 years (roughly), temperatures in these areas have been about the same, or at least, there is no trend in either direction that would suggest impending climate doom like what the Left is trying to say there is. We can see some highs and some lows, but other than that, nothing really out of the ordinary. There are some periods when it gets particularly hot or cold, but according to the graph, it’s nothing to get stressed about nor is it something that would warrant panicky and unnecessary action to be taken.
Action which wouldn’t do anything about the climate but would only affect the livelihoods and the lives of sovereign citizens throughout the world (and let’s not pretend like that’s not the real goal here. Communists hate freedom when others have it).
The world has a very clear record of having both warm and cold periods. Those are sort of the only two real options. Neither of which ought to cause people concern, but the rhetoric and narrative from the Left is that if the global temperatures move either direction as much as 0.000000000001°C, that’s cause for concern and that we are responsible for it.
Never mind that the sea floor has a far bigger say in the planet’s warmth than humanity does. Never mind that the world has gone through multiple periods of warmth and cold (there’s more warm periods than just the Roman, Medieval and Modern ones, we just haven’t figured them out yet). Never mind that the previous periods of warmth cannot possibly be attributed to anything the Left wants to blame for temperatures going up (or sometimes down, since they employ copout tactics to pretend to be right no matter what).
The Left’s true objective isn’t “saving the planet”. That much was clear when AOC’s former chief of staff admitted that the Green New Deal wasn’t about the planet or the environment at all but about the economy in this country and going from capitalism to socialism. The Left’s true objective is socialism, where they get to rule over us and dictate what we can and can’t do.
This Chinese coronavirus has given us some insight into what it’s like to live under such a rule, with tyrannical governors like Michigan’s Whitmore banning people from buying seeds and banning people from visiting family or traveling to other houses (among other things). Imagine this insane and tyrannical rule times 10x, and for every other aspect of our lives, and you have socialism.
The climate change agenda is just the tool through which they can usually get more power. The Chinese virus was the tool for Whitmore to gain more power for herself. The means may be different but the goal is always the same.
But as far as the climate change angle goes, it really doesn’t hold up well at all, given what we know (and have known for quite some time).
Here’s hoping more people realize the farce that the climate change agenda is and recognize the perils that subscribing to such an agenda would bring on everyone.
