Get Back to Earth Science

by Lewis Loflin

Climate change is real, and legitimate fears of a "tipping point" could cause spiraling and severe climate events.

There is non-disputable proof of "abrupt" and severe climate change before 1850.

I believe humans can impact climate, but the level is unknown and can't be proven. Even if small, it could coincide with natural factors to make things worse or better.

What I will not tolerate is religious garbage like Gaia. Or one's spiritual views of Nature getting into science. I also will not accept racist-communist garbage such as "climate justice."

The earth is not divine, there is no Gaia, and I don't care about your feelings.

I am a true environmentalist because I don't waste anything, try to recycle (when it makes sense), and reuse as much as possible, in particular electronics. The same computer motherboard used to write this essay was salvaged from the trash.

Also see Green Technology Highly Polluting, Environmentally Destructive.

I don't burn plastics or throw motor oil or antifreeze on the ground. I don't go out killing animals for sport or unless I eat them. I'll even stop to get turtles out of the road to keep them from being killed.

I don't litter and often pick up the trash others dumped on the road. I have cleaned out trash and tires from the creek near my home.

Climate change is real and has been for 4.5 billion years. The climate etc., is not static but dynamic. It is cyclical, and the cyclical nature of ocean currents, solar radiation, mountain building, seafloor level changes, wobbling of the earth's axis, etc., create a dynamic and ever-changing world.

These various differing cycles interact with each other. Some add together to produce one outcome and may subtract to create a differing effect.

There can be non-cyclical events that can throw the whole system off. Mass volcanic eruptions or giant asteroid (or bolide*) strikes are a few examples.

* bolide - "a large meteor which explodes in the atmosphere." These can leave no crater.

Influenced by thousands of tiny "forcings" and "feedbacks," predicting future events is impossible.

Future climate predictions are hypotheses often proven wrong. So far 100% wrong.

The earth doesn't fit in a test tube. Events take too long to observe in a human lifetime.

All of this has created a self-perpetuating climate industry. Billions are wasted on often useless research, much of it corrupted.

Quoting the Vol 385 April 11, 2015 Richard Horton wrote the following:

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness...
