The Earth has been getting warmer — but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?
A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.
“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Ever since this global warming crap started morons like me have suggested that the sun has more impact on global temperatures and climate that CO2 levels. Literally every degree of temperature above absolute zero on Earth is the result of the sun. I don’t care if the atmosphere was 100% CO2, the planet would be a lifeless frozen rock covered in dry ice if not for the sun.
Solar observations dating back to the 1800s show that sun goes through regular, predictable cycles and that those cycles coincide with ice ages and warm periods. This has been the case long before humans existed.
Frankly, I believe that many of these AGW hucksters knew this obvious fact but thought they could delude us into believing it was all our doing and that we could change the climate simply by taxing the rich and redistributing the wealth.
Let’s face it, you can’t tax sunshine, but if they could convince us it was CO2 liberated from the environment as a result of industry then billions of dollars might change hands and some of that money would find it’s way into their pockets.
Despite this admission, I predict there will be no end to the incessant propaganda campaign to impose carbon taxes on a financially devastated world economy. Never ones to let facts and inconvenient truths get in the way of their agenda it will be business as usual for the international progressive movement.
I have always held (and history supports this) that there will be no end to these connivers meddling and scheming until they are rounded up and thrown into mass graves. Think of it as “carbon sequestration.”
