For years now scientists and physicists have presented study after study showing data, along with their personal interpretations, supporting the hypothesis that the alleged Global Warming phenomenon is due to man-made environmental factors affecting climate change.
Now, a major scientific experiment to conducted study the interaction between cosmic rays and cloud formation reveals that historical climate patterns coincide with the penetration of cosmic rays into the earth’s atmosphere.
Another brick in the wall of evidence that the science, acceptable to our Australian Government, is not settled or even likely to be correct. Certainly not “correct” enough to justify burdening the Australian people with a ‘Carbon Tax‘
So just where are we at?
Firstly, there is supportable evidence that the world-wide push for carbon controls is politically rather than scientifically driven.
Secondly, there is only disputed evidence regarding the degree of man-made CO2 being a planetary temperature influence.
Thirdly, there is serious doubt about the degree of warming and the future trend, which might in fact currently be a cooling trend. (Conceivably, as a consequence of reduced solar activity (ignored by IPCC), and, wait for it, increased pollution).
Fourthly, even in the unlikely,(IMHO), event that CO2 was a villain, the effect on global warming of any changes to Australia’s emissions would be miniscule.
Fifthly, a Carbon Tax, the thin edge of a wedge, would create for Australia a highly negative economic trend, for no gain whatsoever.
All in all, a highly unsatisfactory situation. One on which the Labour Government rests its future. At its own doing. The pity of it all is that the Coalition are just as ignorant and incompetent, or should I say impotent?
When Julia says she would rather take advice from the CSIRO than Alex Jones, she forgets three things:
- 1. The CSIRO is funded by her government and may just possibly not be impartial.
- 2. When Alex Jones speaks, with the exception of some mis-information, he is saying what thousands of other people, including scientists, are saying. Jones is after all, only a reporter, they are all prone to error, but the theme of the message could actually be valid. His errors pale into significance compared to the errors being made by our government.
- 3. The science is not settled, as is demonstrated by this cosmic ray factor, and the gagging order, hardly science is it?
Mr Turnbull is having his say: (I say he is talking rubbish!)
Delivering the Virginia Chadwick memorial lecture last night, Mr Turnbull said a war was being waged on scientists by “those opposed to taking action to cut emissions, many because it does not suit their own financial interests”.
Mr Swan is saying China et al are holding Australia responsible because we have a much higher per capita pollution figure. I say that if we weren’t trying to tell them what to do, they would not be saying a word about us. They know and we know, our pollution contribution is miniscule!
