Looks like scientists just admitted that the claims by global warming religionists is just a bunch of B.S. … but they probably didn’t realize that’s what they did.
A new report on climate change by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research made the accidental admission that the earth has seen these same levels of CO2 in the past and was not “destroyed” by it all.
As reported by the extremist, left-wing site Think Progress:
Current CO2 levels of 410 parts per million (ppm) were last seen on Earth three million years ago, according to the most detailed reconstruction of the Earth’s climate by researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and published in Science Advances.
Wait…. so let’s get this straight: the last time we have CO2 levels like this was “three million years ago”?
When man was not around to cause it?
…And…and the earth is still here for us to talk about it?
Didn’t they just admit that even if man is contributing to some rise in temperatures, natural causes also contribute AND the earth won’t be destroyed by it?
Not in 12 years… OR in three million!
John Nolte had a bit of fun with this at Breitbart News:
Yes, you read that correctly, three million — million — years ago CO2 levels on Earth were the same as they are today, but there is one major difference between three million years ago and today…
Three million years ago, we humans were not driving cars or eating the meat that requires cow farts; we weren’t barbecuing or refusing to recycle or building factories; there was no Industrial Age, no plastic, no air conditioning, no electricity, no lumber mills, no consumerism, no aerosols.
In fact, three million years ago, there were probably no human beings on Earth, at least not human in the way we use that term today. And yet…
CO2 levels were the same then as they are now…
The same study noted that three million years ago there were ice sheets covering 1/3 of the earth. But, guess what? Those ice sheets have been gone for millions of years and the earth was not destroyed when they disappeared.
Plus, global temperatures were even higher millions of years ago than they are today.
The study had more gems like that scattered throughout… but in the end, the report merely confirmed that the earth has seen wildly different weather patterns, eco-systems, and conditions and it’s still here.
Sort of makes your global warming religionists look like doomsaying fools, doesn’t it?
Fake “fact checker” website ClimateFeedback.com decided that satire and snark is not “scientific” enough for them and so they “fact checked” John Nolte’s Breitbart News article that we used to write this post. And they also complained that we at Godfather used Nolte’s snark against them.
In a very long piece that is long on “word salad,” as John Nolte says in his rebuttal, but short on logic and common sense, ClimateFeedback.com slams Nolte for his attack on the original report he citied.
The “scientists” knock Nolte for not understanding that because climate changed in the past without man’s involvement, that doesn’t mean it can’t be changing today because of man.
“This is like saying that fires happened naturally before so there is no way any of us could cause a fire. It’s wrong,” one of the loopy scientists said in his attack on Nolte.
But the ClimateFeedback rebuttal to Nolte completely misses his point (and ours here at GodFather Politics).
What we are saying is that climate has changed — and FAR more catastrophically — many times on this earth and guess what… earth is still here, still supporting life, and not dying.
Before Arnold Schwarzenegger was tooling around in a Hummer, before the Orange Bad Man yanked us out of Barry’s stupid treaties, this planet warmed all on its own, and did so more than once, but this time — this particular time — it’s not one of those natural cycles. Oh, no… this time it’s our fault and there is only one solution: check off every item on the Democrat Party wish list — and isn’t that a lucky coincidence.
Yep, this time there is only one way to save Mother Earth: roll over, allow the central planners to run our lives, and return to the Dark Ages of solar and wind power.
