Most of us by now realize that we've all been had on the global warming doom and gloom scenarios, but that doesn't keep conspiracy theorists from coming up with more even crazier notions. Not long ago, I was talking to a gentleman who had a totally worse theory, literally an Armageddon tale of apocalypse. He said something to the effect (sorry I don't remember his exact words but), that:
"Green house gases have nothing to do with global warming. Many scientists believe the Sun plays a larger role in climate change, than first thought. Global warming can be reversed go to, but if it is not reversed in time all life on this planet will perish."
In fact, he went on to say that climate change was permanent and it was getting hotter, and that "both polar ice caps are beginning to be melted by the sun, during each ice cap's summer season," or something along those lines. Okay so, let's consider his doom and gloom tale, and ask ourselves if it is worthy of consideration or any better than the Global Warming Scare Tactic?
Okay so, first off we know that polar ice comes and goes, the poles wander, tilt changes, volcanic activity, ocean flows change, and the climate has definite cycles, along with our Sun. All of this is known and so, it is not relevant information and this data in and of itself along with all the data that would suggest that the Earth is falling into the Sun, or that the evidence presented is relevant, and all together it certainly doesn't come close to warrant the adoption of his overall hypothesis.
But our conspiracy theorist is not done yet, he also will claim that "the sun is getting hotter, and brighter," but we also know that the Sun has cycles that we do not fully understand, in hotness, and brightness. One thing we should be very weary of is allowing the incorrect interpretation of facts, and data. It's bad enough that those researchers which chose to support global warming were willing to manipulate the data, the charts, and extrapolate a hyperbolic curve to get everyone to jump to attention, bridging a gap to nowhere.
Still, it's much worse when someone takes it even further, and tries to tie in all the ancient mythology, end of days, Egyptian hieroglyphics, and the Mayan Calendar to support their hypothesis. You see, we can't do science in this way. And if we do, we will surely make things worse and enjoy history repeating itself while we dive into solutions which will present the law of unintended consequences.
Therefore, I ask that you become a skeptic, and be cognizant of the large number of doom-and-gloomer individuals out there who claim they are one with science, and yet, are really just out to scare us. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
