Global Warming for Dummies

You remember them, I'm sure you do.  How could we ever forget such people?  It seems they were just always there.  No matter where on this planet you went to school there were always a handful of those smarmy, conceited, opinionated, cowardly little quislings who thru the magic of ego always claimed to be right.  It never mattered what evidence there may be to the contrary, not even eye witnesses could prove them wrong. 

Even worse than being insufferable, these dilatants of the schoolyard somehow always managed to get protected species status whenever the principal became involved.  they were always the ones to start things off, then when it got out of hand, they were somehow just never held accountable, for anything; and never had to show their work.  They were a large part of why most of us hated going to school.  I took comfort in knowing that the real world beyond the schoolyard would eat those spoiled brats alive.  I never dreamed they would be running (and ruining) the planet fifty years later.

Back when I went to school being smart was what it was all about, becoming an educated, intelligent person.  I'm not sure about everyone else, but it just seemed to me that the smarter one became; the more advantage they had over the ignorant by choice types.  It was why moms wanted their daughters to marry doctors or lawyers: big brain - big bucks!  As I entered the workforce it certainly seemed like the smartest and most highly educated were the ones who worked at the management level, while the rest of us punched time cards.  Accordingly  it just went without saying that that to rise to the highest office in American politics, one must be smarter & more intelligent than the great unwashed masses; it was kind of a prerequisite for the job. 
Then about twenty years ago it all began to change, almost overnight it seems.  "They" began the great dumbing down of America in subtle little ways at first; the way all good social engineering begins.  Moving ever closer to their endgame objectives, the last thing  "they" wanted was an educated, intelligent population capable of critical thought.  The groundwork of course was laid with the younger generation.  In oh-so-subtle ways the powers that be torpedoed the upcoming generation by hi-jacking their culture and replacing it with the cult of the BCFMO's (Brightly Colored Fast Moving Objects).  Before long the ME generation became self absorbed, marginalized and polarized, wanting nothing to do with Washington politics.  Exactly as planned.

Leaving nothing whatsoever to chance, the powers that be covered all the bases with dozens of projects & programs which kicked the dumbing down of America into high gear.  Things like Chemtrails, GWEN towers, GMO food-like-products, and aspartame to go along with all the fluoridated water.  Weather modification became a huge thing, because what good is being able to do a thing, if you don't actually do it.  Never mind the consequences to the environment, or children.
Soon, all the legislation to protect the environment from industrial pollution began to disappear; replaced by legislation favoring the polluters, and privatizing water.  To top it all off and seal our fates they then installed our first ever truly moronic president, the bemused chimp, "W".  Our new role model in chief appeared as a savior to the ignorant and uneducated.  He instilled a new found pride in all who cannot speak without embarrassing themselves, or who just make up words when they don't know the correct one.  This of course quickly mutated into just making up new facts when the real ones are too inconvenient ~ and if the president can get away with it, then it must be okay.  Somewhere in those eight years of "W" everything got turned on its head and suddenly everyone wanted to be Larry the cable guy so the Tea Party was created so the truly ignorant could be represented in Washington DC

To me the most frightening aspect of all this was the way those in power suddenly stopped going to extremes to conceal their crime & treason.  Where always before dirty deeds were done in dark smoky rooms under a thick cloak of plausible deniability; now they were doing them in broad daylight, for everyone to see...as if they no longer cared!  With Dick Cheney & Karl Rove at the helm; a war on perception itself was waged whenever questions were raised.  By simply exchanging the words being used with their own, they sought to bring obfuscation to an actual art form for the ant farm.  It worked beautifully.  The legislation to protect polluters became the clean air & water act; the government controlled propaganda mill became clear channel and of course, global warming turned into climate change.  Change the words, spin the truth, crush the opposition! 

It never seems to matter nowadays what the facts are; not with the spin doctors & their manicured one-size-fits-all talking points parroted by every talking head on every one of those clear channels.  Yup, these are the very same talking heads who last week acted like Eric Cantor loosing an election was a national tragedy, while dismissing the most recent school shooting as one would a rainy day...except we don't seem to be getting many of those anymore!  What really gets me is how they even attempt to deny the obvious reality of global warming with their antics of obfuscation & Newspeak.  You see "climate change" is a very natural and normal part of life on earth; there have been many instances of climate change throughout history, always preceded by some global event, such as the end of the ice age.  Global warming isn't so natural in our case, as it is the direct result of burning fossil fuels; and is tied directly to our conduct upon the planet.

It takes a full year for Earth to take a single breath.  We have a record of this breathing going back some eight hundred thousand years.  Every ice core sample we take from the arctic regions holds an unbroken record of earth's atmosphere.  In all that time, the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels never exceeded three one hundredths of one percent...until the turn of the 20th century.  By burning fossil fuels we have turned earth's atmosphere into a dumping ground, with 40% higher CO2  levels than before the industrial revolution.  All this additional carbon dioxide has the direct result of trapping heat inside the atmosphere that should be escaping back to space.  With our arrogant mindless burning of fossil fuels, humans are dumping far more CO2 into the atmosphere than earth can absorb.  As a result, CO2 is building up in the atmosphere, which traps heat in, which is why we humans are responsible for global warming.

Yes, I know there are those who will say it isn't us, but rather the volcanoes on the planet.  Well, we can tell the two apart on the microscopic level; and the numbers say that all the planet's volcanoes add 500 million tons of volcanic CO2 to the atmosphere annually.  That is less than 2% of the 30 Billion tons of industrial CO2 we dump into the atmosphere every year.  The measured annual increase in atmospheric CO2 matches this known amount we create, almost perfectly!   If only carbon dioxide wasn't invisible; maybe if we could see it we could abandon our denial.  The arctic region is warming faster than anywhere on earth, and the arctic is primarily composed of permafrost which is permanently frozen organic material.  With the arctic warming, the permafrost is thawing, melting, and rotting; adding massive doses of CO2 and methane (another dangerous greenhouse gas) to the already polluted atmosphere. 

Scientists are concerned about this because the entire arctic region can double the current atmospheric CO2 levels; which in turn could conceivably crank the positive feedback loop into territory the earth  might not recover from, ever!  If the Earth quits breathing & dies from CO2 poisoning...well, you can extrapolate what that would mean for us.  So, why exactly are we still burning fossil fuels?  Then there is that whole Fukushima factor, and people dying in the gulf of Mexico from corexit poisoning...Who benefits from turning Earth into Venus' twin? 

Then there are those who claim that global warming is a result of the Sun.  Well, let's have a look at the facts!  First of all, solar output levels have remained stable over a remarkable length of time, no increase that would account for all the warming we're currently seeing.  Then, there is the fact that earth is warming more at night than during the day; and warming more in winter than in summer.  Exactly what one would expect from industrial greenhouse warming.  It isn't the Sun - but the sun can save us from ourselves, there is still time if we just choose to act instead of deny.  In one hour more solar energy falls to earth than all the energy our civilization consumes in a year.  Suppose we could harness just a small fraction of available solar & wind power; we could supply ALL our energy needs forever without adding carbon dioxide to the air we breathe.  Simple really!  So, why do we ignore these facts, and continue to pollute & toxify the only planet we have to live on?? 

It is perfectly fine to not know all the answers all the time, it's what fuels the thirst for knowledge in the first place.  In every case, it is always better to admit one's own ignorance than to believe in something wrong, or not to believe at all.  Pretending to have all the answers closes & locks the door to discovering the truth; and it dishonors your soul.  The abandonment of reason & logic can only lead us into a second helping of the dark ages, and doesn't that sound perfectly dreamy?  

Is it logical or reasonable to continually elect, then ignore politicians who when pressed for accountability always use the same words; "I have no recollection of that at this time."?  Does it strike you as odd that following the eight years of "W" we immediately got eight years zero progress on anything?  "They" would have us all believe that congress & Washington are in gridlock because of the skin color of the resident president; when the truth is they are using that as a ruse, a ploy to provide the country with street theater while they continue to rob everyone blind and push their endgame agenda.  What does it say about us as a species that we give more credibility to the lies about global warming than to what we can observe around us with our own senses?  Nothing terribly good, I'm afraid.

So, this is the whirlwind we reap for ignoring those prissy cowards on the schoolyard fifty years ago; when we should have kicked their collective asses.  If no behavior modification is applied to spoiled brat children during the formative years, what you invariably end up with is spoiled brat adults who think the rules don't apply to them, because they never have.  Sums up our current dilemma rather nicely but unfortunately doesn't offer much in the way of solace at this point.  The way out of this quagmire nightmare isn't going to be easy, but it is possible.  It comes down, as always to a simple choice.  You can choose to know, or to deny You can choose to act, or be the deer in the headlights.  The choice is yours!


Knowledge is power ~ Ignorance is bliss.  Pick one!


May the Source be with You

  1. Please explain how the Earth during the Roman Empire's peak was several degrees warmer than today, since they didn't have fossil fuels, and whatever their effect, they only occupied a small part of the known areas of the word?

  4. I just went through a bad winter in the northeast. Maybe the polar bears should hitch a ride down here?

    Climate change is normal, the ice cores reveal that, but let's not forget the burning/destruction of the lungs of the earth - the Amazon rain forest which is being destroyed, nor the damns that are restricting the rivers. Both of these, man made by some govt, are the real cause of whatever whoes some see.

    1. Indeed climate change is normal; and it does not dump tons of carbon dioxide into the air. Humans created Global Warming by disregarding the long term effects on the environment. Excellent point about the amazon rain forests disappearing, yet another human act making it that much harder for the earth to breathe. It isn't one thing, it's a pattern over time of always making the wrong choices regarding the environment.

      Some would say we've already passed the tipping point, that there is no reversing the cumulative damage done to the environment - either way, one thing is certain, you'll be seeing the polar bears sooner than you think.

  5. I hope we have reached the tipping point, and I would feed the polar bears. In my belief system, bad stuff has to happen before things can get better.

    To my way of thinking, instead of taxing cow farts, we should levy a tax on all the hot air coming out of DC and a few other govts.

  6. The poles are shifting, the sun is becoming more active, that and planetary alignments/cycles (what the Farmer's Almac bases its weather projections on, not CO2). the earth 's mantal is heating up and Nebiru is getting closer. The Bible predicts it will get really hot...caused by the SUN and folks will curse god because of it. Yes, Global warming, but not caused by man. That said, we should still be weary of those that pollute, due to greed, carelessness or whatever political agenda there is. THe BP oil disaster, the US Gov with its heavy metal chemtrail pollution, Japans nuclear meltdown, depleated Uranium used in ammo..... All crimes against the whole of earths population.

  7. Well that did your credibility on any spirirtual plains with me. Huge lies that overwhlm on the basis of major propiganda and especially when consensis is reached among large corprations (don't BS us we know the big donations and all the research funds and recognition goes exclusively to the Warmist cult which is nothing but a Bankster created (hence the Bankster controlled media one eyed view) new derivataves money spinning scheme as well as excuse to do many of things you decry in this article. I've been atuned to nature, the outdoors and even lived there in harmony a couple of years all my adult life and I'm a baby boomer if one of the last run. I see a lot of pretty words and a slow leadup that employs the "everyone who is sane agrees with the premise I'm building tactic" only to run off into a load of stock and thoroughly debunked SCIENTIFICALLY using open source data (not hidden data which can't be shared so the models can be checked - models which ended up failing spectacullarly if getting it wrong to tyhe extent of the direction of temperiture change not once, but eveytime we've come to any point where it can be checked. Give it up. It did get all the ninies in the world to start with. Especially environmentally concerned people. I raised a family on a permaculture farm for a decade, I went to Bill Mollison lectures and also was a pioneer ginsing grower in this state. Truth has a way of displacing lies though once the big lie is out, not the other way around. The whole fraudulint bunkfest has relied on phoney claims and bambozlement. Not even the vaunted unanimity exists or ever did. They falsely asserted every name on their reports were supporters of the conclusions which they were not. They were merely contributors, sometimes unknowingly towards the information used. I really was surprised to see someone still pulling this one. I'm out of here mate, because the only thing one expected here was a bit of awareness. You're a sheep.

    1. First of all dude, the main premise of your rant is 100% backwards: "the Banksters who own the corporate media represent the very ones polluting the atmosphere & killing the planet, so WHY would they EVER concoct a cult to convince people that the global warming they are responsible for is REAL? I would think that anyone who is " atuned to nature, the outdoors and even lived there in harmony a couple of years all their adult life" would be ranting against those destroying nature rather than vouching for them, but then what can we expect when everything else you say is backwards. Now it's very easy for you to claim that the science and facts support your views, yet here again you have it all backwards. The data is all there for anyone to see, except for those like yourself who refuse to see them. As for the rest of your mindless blatherings, they are just as backwards as everything else you say. So glad you're out of here, as this has always been a Troll-Free-Zone; every now and then I find it refreshing to remind folks why that is, so you have served your purpose. I will not resort to calling names, like you; but I will suggest you first learn how to spell, then learn to think for yourself. G'Day mate.

  9. Like almost every issue, this one serves well to divide and conquer the masses, as we circle round and round, ever closer to the lip of the drain. Many things amaze me, but one in particular is that nothing is changing in terms of stopping anything that's currently transpiring on this planet. In fact, it's only accelerating.

    Despite all the evidence of the intentional destruction of the planet and its people, along with crimes being committed by the lunatics running the ship, crimes so massive it's surreal - nothing is changing. It's unreal. It's like Groundhog Day everyday.

    Chemtrails, 9/11, fake shootings, global warming, global cooling, climate change, the banksters, fracking, ecological decimation, species extinction, deforestation, GMOs, vaccines, common core, fluoride, big pharma and big everything and about 233545 other issues that are being purposely thrust upon what's left of the the barely breathing species called humanity. Hmmmm, might there be some coordination here? And exactly who is coodinating it?

    But yet, while billions somehow remain oblivious to it all, the remaining few millions spend their lives looking through the tiny lense, disputing this issue and that issue and this issue and that issue ad infinitum, yet continually missing the 10 trillion pound elephant in the planet's living room - what's REALLY going on? Allow me to repeat - WHAT"S REALLY GOING ON?

    What to do? Well since 7 billion of us haven't yet figured out what to do about it (including those somehow still clueless billions), I haven't a clue either.

    Although intuition leads me to believe we have begun some sort of massive metamorphosis - from one world and one reality to another and . . .that's there's nothing really to do at this point, as IT is unstoppable. Isn't this clear by now? The only questions that remain is how long will IT take, and what the next IT will be.

      Thanks for the eloquent synopsis of the big picture. A very divisive issue indeed, which is why agents of chaos are engaged to keep the debate raging. These self-blinded American Taliban types reminds me of something gramps used to say:

  10. Yeah, that terraforming theory makes more and more sense all the time (as I pull the covers over my head at night!). How else can one explain it all?

    The suspense is killing us all. It's been death by 10,000,000 cuts for years now. Is this the way it will go down or will there be a spectacular show of fireworks at the end? Feels like we're getting ever closer as the days march on, almost like - seriously - how much longer can all of this insanity possibly go on for?

    Outside of earning a fake paycheck in order to live (survive) on this hellhole, doing anything else at this very late date seems completely moot. The time for the Great Revealing is nigh, is it not?

    Liking your thoughts on a timeline split more and more everyday, maybe leading to that mythical world called Shambhala. Think we've earned our admission. . .

      I believe 2 things: first is that we are indeed dealing here with 'the ancient enemy' - as in Archons. 2nd, I believe it IS possible to defeat their plan, and possibly them...but not very damn likely at this late date...leaving us little more than hiding under our covers to feel safe in an altogether meaningless way.

      I feel the same way you do - exactly. I got tired of waiting for the big reveal...and waiting out the duration like some "prepper" ain't my cup of tea - so I decided to confuse simply everyone and went big time into the 3D printing game. Have 2 of the beasts working, and new customers every week it seems. Yeah, we're still bleeding from those million cuts, and the endgame appears nastier every day - that does not mean it deserves my energy and attention all the time. It's a choice.

      Thanks for hanging out!

    2. That's beautiful, love your idea - another purposely-inflicted crack into the collective, slave-system matrix. Well done!. Can you print me out a spaceship capable of travel to a distant galaxy? Just need enough fuel for one-way travel, not concerned with round trip. I'd appreciate it, thanks.

      My idea as well supports exiting the matrix - to flip the entire thing. If everything we've been told our entire lives is a lie, and our entire reality is a false construct, as I mentioned above, outside of having to "between worlds" earn money to live, we should be abandoning and walking away from everything else, and I mean everything. No more TV, going to the movies, shopping at box stores, watching sports (millionaires play with balls), sending your kids to indoctrination centers disguised as "schools", etc. etc. etc. Pretend as if those things don't even exist.

      At first, this seems insane, abnormal and impossible to do. Eventually it will become the new normal. And when more and more people begin abandoning their old "normal" (i.e. abnormal) and "sane", (i.e. insane lives) the new normal will fill the vacuum, the void.

      Use all of that free time and energy to begin to create a new reality and life with your neighbors, family, etc. Growing gardens, telling stories, speaking truth, building relationships in community, etc. Lauging at the matrix - politicians, bankers, and the like. Implant the meme into the collective consciousness and then observe. Don't let up!

      All the best, C!

  11. maybe someone can answer this.....where I live and generally CO2 is around 300ppm......plants grow stronger, healthier and larger when CO2 levels are quadrupled.....so how can it be a bad thing?...won't it re-green the planet and help seemingly world wide drought and water shortages?....thanks

    1. While CO2 is essential for life on earth, as with most stuff, too much of a good thing can be bad. I'm not sure plant life thrives when CO2 levels are quadrupled as on Mona Loa ther just exceeded 420ppm and they're not too happy about it. While essential to the carbon cycle, CO2 is also a greenhouse gas responsible in part for human related climate change. Even greater accumulations will essentially aid in removing oxygen from the oceans over time, and when the oceans can no longer process oxygen it will herald the end of any life form (plant, animal, etc) which requires oxygen to live. IT's all connected! Right now CO2 levels are the highest in 20 million years. If we continue to allow this dumping into the atmosphere unabated, we hasten mankinds demise.

  12. You are certainly right that global warming is happening, and getting worse.

    However, it is much worse than you said. Right now, there are 5 gigatons of methane in the atmosphere, which is about 1/3 of the total greenhouse gas. The shallow part of the Arctic Sea contains between 1000 to 5000 gigatons of methane, that is now starting to vent into the atmosphere. If 5000 gigatons is vented, that is 1000 times the current methane gas in the atmosphere, or 1000 times 1/3 equals 330 times more greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. This will turn the earth into a broiler oven, in only a FEW DECADES!

    The only thing stopping the venting of the methane is a shallow, frozen, sediment layer, about 150 feet deep, at the bottom of the east Siberian Arctic Shelf. So, an ice free Arctic is a death sentence for planet Earth, and not in a thousand years, but more like 20 or 30 years.

    After that, the permafrost melts, and vents even more CO2 and methane. It is a runaway, positive feedback, nightmare on steroids. Basically, the CO2 is just a trigger for the main event, and we will see this nightmare begin in the next few years. There is NO turning back, once it starts. Watch the news for talk about "methane plumes" in the Laptev Sea.

    I believe the best thing we can do now, is release the LENR technologies, AND fertilize the tropical oceans with nano-iron particles, to create plankton plumes. These plankton plumes are the ONLY way to sequester enough carbon (as carbonates at the bottom of the sea) to PERHAPS reverse the runaway warming in the Arctic.

    Thank you for posting your article, and I'm glad you have a thick skin. It is very painful for folks to come to terms with their part, in messing up our planet. That is why many people refuse to believe their own eyes, regarding climate change. Also, many scientists are paid to push the "ice age", and "global cooling" crap. I believe they get $3000/month for a blog entry, or two. I know of two scientists who take the payment to lie about the climate. One is a pure whore, and the other is in a very tough financial situation. It is a few, lone scientists, that keep the "ice age" nonsense going.

    Thanks for a great blog!

      Indeed, the alarming facts you cite all align with my own findings, and I originally was going to include such additional signs of imminent warnings, but didn't want to scare the cattle out of their collective wits. Indeed the arctic is the 'battleground' for the new cold war with Russia: as new waterways are now open in the far North , due to global warming, and russia is not only using them, they're using them to claim ownership mof the arctic - just as they claim Ukraine is theirs. Funny we don't see that story in the news.

    2. I will say in hindsight however; that I might have chosen a better title for this post, and might have made it like five pages longer just to cover all the various factors contributing to global warming. Should have done a better job in this one...and I'm going to blame it all on mercury retrograde ;)
