I was in a meeting the other day (true story) and the presenter shot this Global warming round off on us a captive audience of about fifty people. She said, “Whether you believe in Global warming or not the climate is changing!”
I don’t know much else of what she said after that because my mind went into overdrive picking apart the logical fallacies of her little sneak assault on the reasoning capabilities of everyone in that room.
This was somewhat of an educated person, she took the time to name her degrees and her expertise, but somehow she didn’t quite understand just how ridiculously preposterous her statement was.
She might as well as said, “Whether you believe in Santa Claus or not there are men dressed in red suits at the mall.”
While it is true that men dress in red suits at the mall, particularity during the holiday season, that does not support nor does it prove that there is a Santa Claus!
Neither does drawing a false correlation between the fact that the earth’s climate does change to validate the erroneous claims of Global warming, prove the theory of Global warming!
Dr David Evans a one time proponent of anthropogenic global warming spent six years doing carbon accounting, building models for the Australian government to estimate carbon emissions from land use change and forestry. When he started that job in 1999 Evans says the evidence that carbon emissions caused global warming seemed pretty conclusive, but since then new evidence has weakened that case. Therefore he is now skeptical.
So scientific evidence changed the mind of Dr. Evans, which is quite extraordinary because global warming was Dr. Evans’ livelihood as he outlines in his article, “I was on the Global warming Gravy Train.”
Coming out against the political correct accepted model that man-made carbon dioxide emissions are the cause for raises in the earth’s temperature would put Dr. Evans out of a job. Yet he did just that with his paper entitled, “Carbon Emissions Don’t Cause Global Warming”
Some of us will continue to accept and support fallacious climate change arguments no matter what the scientific evidence. But according to a growing body of scientist and scientific evidence, “It’s not CO2 that causes Global warming, stupid!” (see video)
