- Do you think they are lying? Of course they are!
- Are we serious about greenhouse gases and our carbon
- What is behind global warming?
- Could global warming be a natural phenomenon?
- Is there some other hidden agenda behind this urgent
- Does it mean aggressive economic growth for the exclusive
developed and developing nations and more economic suffering and extremes
of poverty for the Underdeveloped? I will let the readers be the jury and
decide who is telling the truth, the scaremongers who apply all the pressure
but do little to make drastic reductions themselves or those that have
no choice to do what they do in order to survive.
- Does anyone consider that natural occurrences can have
a significant impact on the world's environment? Do normal people fully
understand who has made a major contribution to the worlds environmental
pollution and what they have done to cause dramatic changes in both temperature
and dew point in our atmosphere? Could it be that the G20 are the ruthless
culprits and want others to pay stealth taxes or dramatically alter their
owns means of energy? Are they forcing them to buy the west's technology
such as nuclear power etc and in doing so cause them to fall into extremes
of debt and in turn makes them less competitive.
- We see an unprecedented push by Obama and Brown to rush
this through whilst at the same time many experts are challenging their
views and others have grave doubt as to the authenticity of the data provided.
So let's look at this aggressive push and then look into the history of
our environment and its climate. We will also look into the damage already
done to our planet by many of those G20 countries who continue to do so.
- Alistair Darling has urged the world's top finance officials
to reach an agreement on bearing the cost of fighting climate change before
a UN summit on global warming next month.
- Addressing finance ministers and central bankers from
the Group of 20 rich and developing nations Namely Argentina, Australia,
Brazil, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan,
Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United
States and the rotating EU presidency on Saturday, Darling said that tackling
climate change is an "urgent problem."
- Darling wants officials to agree on a finance package
to help poorer nations develop green industries and adapt to climate change.
The EU has already agreed to a euro100 billion annual package of public
and private finance by 2020 and is urging the U.S. to lay out its position.
- The G-20 finance officials are also discussing ways to
secure future global economic growth.
- It is important for all of us to focus and fully understand
the underlined comment above and realize that behind every bold statement
lies some sinister global plan of economic greed and global control. We
should all take a step backward and not let such people as Obama and Brown
bulldoze this in Copenhagen. We should not let David Miliband and his brother
Ed Miliband use scaremonger tactics to rush this along. Headlines last
month read: "David Miliband sets out to shock on global warming tour"..Has
he taken over his little brother's role as Secretary of State for
Energy and Climate Change? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretary_of_State_for_Energy_and_Climate_Change
- Al Gore (the eternal savior), who blinds us with propaganda
whilst making himself incredibly rich is at the head of this pack of lies.
Of course we are abusing our planet earth but there are many others measure
that can be taken without punishing those countries that are less fortunate
than ourselves. I could give so many examples of the abuse by theG20 countries
and also examples on how to drastically reduce this so called carbon footprint
and at the same time save us much money. It would take a totally different
mindset by our leaders, government (both national and regional) in order
to improve our respective footprints. If they are truly sincere they alone
could really make a difference. I will give one very good example in another
article of this series just to highlight the magnitude of our respective
governments neglect. My example will prove that this is truly a totally
false façade and what we are going through is a natural cycle which
is amplified by some of our own government's policy. So now let's turn
the clock back and investigate ourselves what is really happening in this
- During the Viking period we saw these incredible seafarers
embark on extremely long and dangerous sea journeys. It is believed they
travelled from Scandinavia, through the Arctic Circle and then via the
North West Passage into the Pacific. Between 800 and 1100 CE a warmer climate
prevailed. The Vikings established a colony in Greenland and for the first
century or so they and their descendants enjoyed a good life. Around 1000
A.D. the climate was in an extraordinarily warm phase. Some 350 years later
the climate had cooled considerably but still perfectly habitable.
Ivar Bardson wrote that "On the mountains and lower down grow the
best of fruits, as big as apples and good to eat. There also grows the
best wheat that exists." Life in Greenland was hardly the rough outpost
existence we might expect."
- However by 1200, climatic change allowed the arctic ice
pack to creep farther southward, making navigation in Greenland waters
increasingly hazardous -- even in summer. The colonies' decline accelerated.
As the twelfth century ended, the climate reversed. Ice crept southward;
all over Europe snow fell lower on the mountain slopes, upland trees died.
Pack-ice cluttered the coasts of Greenland, and then tightened an Arctic
noose to strangle movement.
- Now we are at last starting to see the truth in relation
to the earth natural cycles and evidence will show how these cycles bottomed
out into the Little Ice Age and is now again starting its next cycle. We
also have to understand that despite all these geniuses that exist and
computer whiz kids, the earth and its environment cannot be programmed
and these so called computer models are only pure estimates. It is also
a fact that during the transitional period fluctuations can occur in either
direction as we will see.
- During the onset of this ice age vessel were still able
to penetrate the North West Passage and even with this onset people still
lived in the area. The deteriorating climate gave a clear indication when
the ocean temperature fell 1-3 deg. C and the Arctic summer front retreated
4-5 deg. of latitude. Sea ice stayed all year in sheltered Bathurst Inlet
and east Coronation Gulf, inevitably disrupting sea-mammals and their hunters,
but with little effect on caribou.
- Sailing vessel activity continued in their attempts to
transit the passage and fluctuations in conditions resulted in some success
from time to time. We have to understand that the ice conditions in this
region are all based on many factors: The Earths own cover of vegetation
i.e. jungle/forest desert water and the polar ice caps themselves.
The suns heat energy and the level of that heat arriving on the surface
of the earth is subject to the condition of the atmosphere above it.
- The earth is like one big washing machine and has the
ability to cleanse itself in so many ways. The seas/oceans circulate hot
and cold currents, the air masses circulate hot and cold air masses and
over a very long period of time the earth's crust also circulates when
"Teutonic Plates" collide. Some fold down under the other and
enter the earths Mantle when it again is circulated and others ride over.
The plates themselves are fully mobile and move very slow over millions
of years making deserts turn into tropical climates and vegetated land
turn into deserts and huge mountain can be forced upwards. Volcanoes form
above land and below seas/oceans all of which add to changes in temperature
both below the sea and the earth's atmosphere. Volcanic ash can become
a serious problem for planet earth. Such major events in the past have
caused major climate changes as the energy of the sun is reduced by airborne
- In the next article we will look at the various systems
that affect our climate and the pollution after the industrial revolution
and Victorian Times. This will then follow with the state of our environment
during the "Cold War" including my own experience in the Arctic
Circle. It is hoped that as we work through this series you will all fully
understand that although we continue to damage our planet it really is
not the major factor leading to Global Warming. It is a natural phenomenon
and we can certainly all help to ease the onset but not in the way our
leaders are planning. They are creating a panic scenario for purely commercial
gains and with their continue economic greed the poor of the world will
not only end up paying the price by way of stealth taxes but also create
more poverty in the underdeveloped world. Could we possibly see the day
when ones own "Flatulence" becomes a taxable issue!
