Conversations about the theory of Climate Change often become contentious. Emotional responses are fueled by a cult-like adherence to worst-case scenarios and the political power they provide, or a sad lack of imagination and adaptation.
While the data used for speculation relies on an extremely limited timeline, many scientists claim that the Earth has risen in temperature 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880. NASA’s Global Climate Change website features a meme that discourages argument.
For the purposes of activism, wealth redistribution and general panic that facilitates government control, the logical flaws in Climate Change “science” are ignored, like the false fears of the 1970s, when Climate Scientists were warning us all about the next Global Ice Age.
According to climatecentral.org:
So how can we be confident that Earth is actually warming? Scientists avoid (to a large extent) the potential problems associated with gaps in weather station coverage by looking at temperature anomalies, rather than absolute temperatures. In other words, we don’t try to measure Earth’s average temperature. In fact, if you have ever looked through the climate literature trying to learn the average temperature of the Earth, you’ve probably noticed that it is almost never discussed. That’s because it’s difficult to measure, for exactly the reason that this question raises—gaps in weather station coverage. (More recently, satellite measurements have provided more complete coverage, but they go back only to 1980 or so, and we’ve learned also that it’s exceedingly difficult to accurately measure very slow temperature trends from satellites. But that’s another story.)
The latest propaganda involves the future of Earth’s food supply!
On May 19, 2017, The Verge published a scaremongering article relishing the use of the word “Doomsday” to attract the attention of readers:
The seed bank designed to preserve the world’s crops and plants in the event of global disaster isn’t prepared to withstand the greatest global disaster facing our planet: global warming. Melting permafrost on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, where the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is located, has seeped into the seed bank, raising questions of how the structure will be able to survive in the future as the Earth keeps warming.
Perhaps, a longer view is in order.
“Climatologist Cliff Harris and Meteorologist Randy Mann, believe in rather frequent climate changes in our global weather patterns. Geologic evidence shows our climate has been changing over millions of years. The warming and cooling of global temperatures are likely the result of long-term climatic cycles, solar activity, sea-surface temperature patterns and more.” – longrangeweather.com
If our planet is millions of years old, as a majority of scientists believe, the climate has been demonstrating radical fluctuations since the beginning of Earth’s existence. These drastic changes necessitated a diaspora across the globe.
Instead of ignorantly believing that global climate must accommodate our lifestyles, perhaps we need to acknowledge that changes in temperature may be Mother Nature’s way of saying, “You’ve lived here long enough. Now, get out there and make new friends.” The very changes we fear have historically driven humanity to expand and improve civilization.
The lesson for the Doomsday Seed Vault may be recognizing that the very place that was chosen for its frigid temperatures may soon offer the perfect conditions for planting the seeds they now have in frozen storage.
