To the editor:
The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) have told the world that the science is settled, that there is no argument or doubt, man is causing climate change/global warming and we (us, you and I) have to reduce our “carbon footprint” on the planet. And we, the people, have to pay another (carbon) tax to do so. Really?
Climate change/global warming and cooling has been going on for millions of years. (It wasn’t that long ago everyone was talking global cooling) The planet has gone through ice ages and hot spells and the presence of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has, in the past been at levels thousands of times more in the past than it is today. Yet, we have all been led to believe by the so-called “experts” that we, the human race can actually cause climate change. Climate pollution yes, but to think we can impart significant change on the climate is like saying we can change the tides.
Well, the science is not settled. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Research done by scientists and climatologists at the Lord Monckton Foundation have exposed an error in the science relied upon by the IPCC who have shown no desire to consider this potential error. Why? (http://www.lordmoncktonfoundation.com/)
In addition, there is the Global Warming Petition Project, or the Oregon Petition, that also said no to man-made climate change/global warming. According to Petitionproject.org, the petition has the signatures of 31,487 American scientists, of which 9,029 stated they had Ph.Ds., who challenge the settled science of the IPCC.
Are increasing levels of carbon dioxide a real issue? Not really, when you consider all plants need CO2 to survive, and actually produce oxygen for us to breathe. (Maybe we need to be replacing all those trees we keep cutting down every day). If the powers that be are so concerned about climate change and global warming, maybe they should start by stopping the rampant spraying of dozens of those chemtrails we see in the sky overhead everyday which contain harmful and well know carcinogenic poisons like aluminum, barium and strontium.
