Climate Change : Solar Sourced or Carbon Based?

Climate change denial is bonkers, the evidence shows that in recent history temperatures have risen, but the argument that carbon causes climate change seems to be based on suspect science. Nevertheless the Greens have chosen to blame carbon emissions for causing climate change because of their supernatural hatred of industrialisation, the automobile and urbanisation, derived partly from their misty-eyed romanticisation of peasant life. It suits their political objectives to blame carbon emissions for climate change.

With the collapse of socialism and communism as plausible belief systems many of the former adherents have shifted into the Green movement. Green issues like clean air, pure water and high quality food command wide support across the political spectrum and even amongst the unpoliticised. Anti-capitalist extremists have hijacked these populist issues and now control the Green movement’s wider agenda – that is the claim made by Patrick Moore and he should know, he co-founded Greenpeace. He believes that “one of the most pernicious aspects of the modern environmental movement is the romanticisation of peasant life. And the idea that industrial societies are the destroyers of the world. The environmental movement has evolved into the strongest force there is for preventing development in the developing countries. I think it’s legitimate for me to call them anti-human.”

 

There is strong evidence that carbon levels lag the rise in temperature. Two-thirds of our planet is water covered, as temperatures rise the seas release more carbon dioxide. The amount released by that process dwarfs the amount released by humanity. Plato argued that in order to keep a stable social structure, societies need a Noble Lie. In Plato’s mind, the Noble Lie is a religious lie that’s fed to the masses to keep them under control and happy with their situation in life. It seems to Guido that the Green movement is propagating a Platonic-style Noble Lie – we are doomed unless we give up our cars and planes. In reality rising temperatures are far more likely to be a result of solar activity cycles.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
