Interested in climate change? I've got a Stack of articles, right here! kajm.deviantart.com/gallery/33…

If you disagree with something that I or anyone has said, please QUOTE THE EXACT WORDS YOU DISAGREE WITH. This avoids many misunderstandings.

If you cannot do that, then don't be surprised if I don't want to be bothered with you.


To all the rest, Come on in, Read and Learn! That is all I ask. I do not claim special knowledge; in fact, I freely admit that I have a long way to go.
But with a degree in geology and 30 years of following this, I think I have a pretty good idea of which way to go.
In the end, which way you choose to believe, is up to you. But you should base your decision upon the facts, not upon hype.

There are those who want you to believe that the last several years of deeply cold and snowy winters world-wide, are the result of 'man-made' global warming. This, even though every one of the IPCC reports has predicted that winters would get warmer, shorter, wetter.

This also despite the fact that the polar vortex dipping deep into the lower latitudes was responsible for the record cold winters experienced in the 60s and 70s- before claims that YOU are overheating the world, began to be circulated.

Let us also not forget that a close look at past history shows that the polar vortex is quite active during ice ages 2014 Polar Vortex Compared to Last Glaciation by Kajm

The urge to blame YOU for everything climate hasn't always been the case. No. that politicization of science began in the late 70s / early 80s.

Before then, people used science to explain what was happening, not to accuse.**

Hubert Lamb was one of those who studied past climate history as he attempted to understand the climate shifts which were (and always have been) occurring. So far as I know, he wasn't interested in forcing people to change their lifestyles in order to 'fix' the climate; he wasn't about demonizing the people who provide your home's winter warmth, and he wasn't about reducing the Middle Class to poverty status.

He was interested in learning from the past, while those today seem to be all about ignoring the past.

What did he discover in his researches? Well, it appears that what we're experiencing with winters the past few years, was far more prevalent during the Little Ice Age :

Polar Vortex Common In The 19thC

February 28, 2015

I came across a chapter in Hubert Lamb’s “Climate, History and the Modern World”, which has more than a bit of topical relevance.

 

We are all well aware of the extremely cold winters in the eastern half of the States, both this year and last. This has coincided with warm winters in the west, the sort of extreme weather which warmists would like to blame on “climate change”.

 

Well it turns out that they had the same weather patterns in the 1850’s and 60’s, and the reason was just the same – a meridional jet stream.

HH Lamb – Page 253

 

 

Lamb believed that this meridionality was actually more common during the Little Ice Age, and there is plenty of evidence of the same phenomenon during the cooling period of the 1960’s and 70’s.

Remember: today's climate alarmists are all about making you believe that YOU are the cause of extreme weather events- such as the descent of the polar vortex.
And they want you to believe that this more or less began with the Industrial Revolution, which began in the 1850s, as humans began to pump CO2 into the atmosphere in greater quantities.

And yet, the polar vortex was operating during the entirety of the Little Ice Age- which ran for 600 years.

The polar vortex has Always been there. It always will be. It has always played a role in our weather- just look, again, at the comparison with the glaciation of the last ice age.

Learning about past climate shifts is key to *not* living in fear of the weather. We've seen it before- ALL of it. We'll see it again. And again. And Again... no matter what they force YOU to do. No matter what fool scheme they attempt to 'fix' the weather. No matter if it costs tens of millions of Middle-class families their futures, or hundreds of millions of human lives, as they attempt to 'fix' the weather.

This is not the article I intended to write this weekend- that one Is related, though, and is in the works. It was sparked by a paragraph of such incredible Stupidity, that I had to write a response to it. What is that paragraph? You'll see soon enough. The really, REALLY bad part is, it comes from a supposedly scientific site- a site created and run by the current head of the Goddard Inst. for Space Science!

He's finally falling apart, eh?

Kinda like Liberalism itself, if you think about it; the leftist groups that were once indifferent to each other- the Atheists, the Feminists, and even the LGBTs from time to time- seem to be warring with each other, while people are starting to take a look at how harsh the left can be and think, "Maybe this conservatism deal isn't as bad an idea as we made it out to be". Don't get me wrong; every system and ideology has its flaws, but something tells me society's starting to be more conservative in a better way.

There's also a minority in the African American community that doesn't approve of Obama because he wasn't part of the Slave Trade, like most Americans (but not all) of African descent. Interesting, huh?

I'm not sure, but, one could hope karma will one day catch up to him and pound him into the tarmac. Even then, not certain the lying bastard is capable of learning anything from it.

There's a bit on FB about a conservative black kid who told off oh!bummer! I will send you the link as soon as the weather stops screwing with our connection.

Just seeing him acknowledge that he's been making false accusations is a giant sigh of relief from me. This could make a Streisand Effect of sorts, no?

Also, that last bit is pretty interesting.

He knows exactly what his lies are. But he wants people to believe them, rather than be reasonable.

It is! And thank you. I may make use of that one the next time I do a polar bear update.

What are your thoughts on critically endangered species?  And the plight of rhinoceros and elephants?

Well, on the score of elephants and rhinos, I definitely believe they need to be... shepherded, rather than just 'protected' in wildlife preserves. That puts more humans in their environment, but those humans would be there to prevent poaching. This said, those shepherds need to be third-party people. Not from the UN, not from the region- I distrust the motivations of those from the UN, and people from the region may be sympathetic towards poachers, mostly due to the occasional animal straying from protected regions and doing damage to crops and villages. It is a complicated mess any way one tries to do it.

Critically endangered.... that's even messier. While I do believe there are some which require better protection, there are others which have been added for purely political reasons- and there are others which have been removed, for political reasons: see the 30-year permits handed out to wind farms, for golden eagles. Those winds farm owners are claiming that 'a lot less golden eagles are being killed,' fully ignoring the fact that there are less to be killed because a large number of them already have been killed by those turbines.

And so forth......
