Global Warming Or Climate Change

Global Warming 1973 To 2006

Ice Age Vs Global Warming

Climatologists extemporaneously claimed that global temperatures were precipitously dropping at a record-setting rate back in the 1970's. They also claimed that aerosol and chlorofluorocarbons (found in Freon and canned hair spray) were culpable. They asserted that this combination of scenarios would probably cause another Ice Age.
In the same time period, however, scientists were claiming that Greenhouse Gases would cause Global Warming in the coming decades. This was during the time when California was covered by a hovering blanket of smog and industrial pollution was under the microscope of scrutiny.

Global Warming In The 1980’s

In the 1980's, Global Warming, or the dangers of CO2 emissions was found in few headlines. Scientific studies were conducted, but the public knew very little about it. Many sources, such as volcanic activity, aerosol propellants, nuclear testing, space exploration, and several other scenarios were labeled a threat to the world. Emissions from gasoline and oil engines, coal-burning electric plants, and industrial plants were the main culprits.
This was the Genesis of computers and programs were designed specifically to keep track of global temperatures and weather trends. It did not take long for the prediction that the global temperature average would rise several degrees by the turn of the 21st century – this was incorrect.
Global Warming Stopped

Global Warming Ended In 1998

Global warming rhetoric heated up in this decade and 117 climate predictions were released. 114 of them were vastly incorrect and only three were close to the actual recordings. The general consensus was that the average global temperature would rise 2 degrees Centigrade by 2010 - this did not happen. In fact, it remained the same from 1998 to 2016.
The temperature rose just 0.7 degrees from 1989 to 1998, if the measuring process was accurate. There is no scientific link between human activity and this infinitesimal rise. There is also no scientific proof that CO2 caused it. If there was evidence of the aforementioned, the temperature would have continued to rise.
Since 1998, the temperature has been steady and not rising one iota. This notion has baffled the environmentalists and Green scientists. They have since said that the globe is on a hiatus and the warming will continue again.

The Millennium

The year 2000 came and went without the predicted “Y2K” computer crashes that had been so widely predicted. Many Global Warming predictions were draught in the new millennium. After Al Gore’s crushing defeat in the 2000 presidential election, he set his sights on Global Warming – and he raked in over $100 million.
In 2007, 2008, and 2009, the former Vice President Gore predicted the Polar ice caps would vanish by the year 2013. He vehemently proclaimed that “man-made Global Warming” would melt them down and the oceans will flood the Earth. The inconvenient truth to this prediction is that the caps have doubled in size and the water level has lessened.

Post 2010

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) made bold predictions in 2010. This group of scientists is from many countries and they are paid to find results that support Global Warming. If they do not find it, their services are no longer needed. These are the very same countries that pointedly declared that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq preceding the war.
The Predictions:
1 – “Most aspects of Climate Change will persist for many centuries even if emissions of CO2 are stopped.”
2 – “It is very likely that the Arctic Sea ice cover will continue to shrink and thin and that Northern Hemisphere spring snow will decrease during the 21st century.”
3 – “Global glacier volume will further decrease.”
4 – ”Global surface temperature from the end of the 21st century is likely to exceed 1.5 degrees centigrade… and more likely 2 degrees.”
5 – “The contrast in precipitation between wet and dry regions and between wet and dry seasons will increase.”
This was the most aggressive approach to date. These optics were developed to terrify the citizenry into conformity. Emotion is the greatest tool in all political realms. Of course, none of them has come to fruition so far. They always predict decades ahead so they can never be held culpable.
Global Warming Failed Predictions

Failed Predictions On Climate Change And Global Warming

The first species that has gone extinct because of Climate Change was the Aldabra banded snail. They were declared extinct in 2007 but the pesky critters were discovered, or rediscovered, in August of 2014. There they were, swimming in the Indian Ocean near the island of Seychelles carefree and unfettered. Their demise was unbeknownst to them.
In the heat of summer in 2012, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared that this was the hottest summer on record in the United States of America. The previous hottest day was recorded in 1936.
Soon thereafter, it was discovered that the temperature was changed for 1936 to give the appearance of 2012 as being the hottest. Without explanation, the NOAA has reinstated 1936 as the hottest summer in the USA.
The winter of 2009-2010 was the coldest winter on record in the last 35 years. The winter of 2012-2013 is the second coldest winter during this interim. The summers have been quite mild on average this century.
In 2013, an Antarctic expedition vessel was trapped in sea ice 100 miles offshore in 10-foot thick ice – the same ice that was predicted to be gone. Three icebreakers failed to reach the ship to rescue them and they too became stuck. 

Ironically, the first ship was full of scientists looking for evidence of Global Warming. They were comparing information from last century to the 2013 information – there was no sea ice there 100 years ago.
Several rowboats, canoes, Yachts, and sailboats also were stuck in the Arctic Sea ice in the summer of 2012. They were all under the impression that their voyage through the Northwest Passage would be ice-free.
Secretary of State John Kerry, along with Al Gore, predicted that the entire Arctic region would have no ice. In fact, the antithesis to their predictions developed – the ice has doubled to the 2nd highest sea ice level on record.

Trade Winds

New research by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) stated that the previous warming was due to changes in atmospheric circulation. In other words; it was the wind. The simplicity of wind can vastly affect global temperatures.
Wind patterns change constantly and seldom stays the same for very long. The wind can pound heat into the ocean and it can also pick up coolness from the water. The NAS admits that this new finding alters the fundamentals of global warming information.
The National and Atmospheric Administration says that this study will greatly effect trending temperature interpretations at a global level. Simply put; this is a game changer for future assessments and predictions. Then came a big change. Goodbye to Global Warming, hello to Climate Change.

In Closing

Apparently, if it rains too much, rains not enough, or a hurricane comes by, or it is a sunny day, it is all due to Climate Change. With this perfect scenario, any condition can be allotted to Global Warming or Climate Change. This intentionally vague name is the one-size fits all approach.
President Obama and Green enthusiasts tout that it is real and the debate is over. When Democrats acclaim that the debate is over -- it means they are losing the argument. Never debate, just demand. This debate is far from over and it will be heatedly discussed for decades to come.
The temperature recordings used to declare Global Warming or Climate Change goes back a little over 100 years. Considering that the Earth is 4.54 billion years old, this is an infinitesimal amount of time to deduce any such conclusions.

A cleaner Earth is desirable by most conscientious folks. However, even if we got CO2 emissions to zero, Russia, China, and Egypt, who are the biggest pollution offenders, will not join in this cause. It simply costs exorbitantly too much, and coal and oil are plentiful. If the alarmists are correct, we are doomed no matter what the U.S. does.
I am not a Global Warming or Climate Change opponent, nor am I a proponent. I could not feel more indifferent on the matter. It has never been scientifically proved, that, A) Global Warming exists and that it is caused by humans, or, B) Climate Change, whatsoever this word means, is a deleterious condition caused by the human race.
