GLOBAL WARMING (AKA CLIMATE CHANGE) – THE NEW RELIGION

THE DOGMA

Climate change is real and it is caused by human activities.

This dogma can not be debated or questioned. If any politician, scientist, businessman/woman or even a “man in the street” dares to do so that person will be labelled as a climate change denier. As such, they will be “crucified” by their peers.
I now appreciate how Galileo Galilei must have felt when he challenged the geocentric view of the world. He was not only ostracised by his peers, but he was accused of heresy. In 1615 the Roman Inquisition found him guilty and he spent the rest of his life in home detention.

KEY PROPHETS OF THE GLOBAL WARMING DOGMA

(i) The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPPC)

The genesis of this body goes back to 1985, but it was formally established in 1988 by the World Metrological Organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNIP).
The IPPC does not do any research or data collection. Rather, from time to time it invites climate scientists, economists and sociologist amongst others scientists to summarise the relevant peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed literature and prepare report(s). So far, the IPCC has published reports in 1990,1995,2001,2007 and 2014.

(ii)The Green Parties All around the World

The Green Parties typically are like watermelons, green outside and red inside. Their original concerns were environmental issues. However, over time, they invariable have morphed into left wing (or extreme left wing) parties with agendas based on Marxist principles.

(iii)The Trade Union Movement

Unions are similar to the Green Parties as their existence is by definition based on Marxist Principles. My contention is that they support global warming for ideological reasons rather than anything else.

(iv)Virtue Signalling Bourgeois Narcissists

This group of individuals, typically retired politicians, actors and artists with high profiles who do not do what they preach. A typical illustration of this narcisisstic behaviour is when some of them attend an international conference like the COP24 Katowice or the World Economic Forum in Davos, and express their concerns about the perils of global warming. At the same time, it is not unusual for them to fly in and out of the venue on a private aeroplane. Siebenmark has reported that the four airports of Zurich, Dubendorf. St Gallen-Altenrhein, and St Moritz had over 1300 private aeroplane movements during the period surrounding the World Economic Forum in 2018 (J. Siebenmark, AINonline,21/1/2019).

ACTION PLAN FOR THE TRUE BELIEVERS TO REDUCE THEIR CARBON FOOT PRINT

Down size your home to 100-120 square meters (roughly 1100-1300 square foot)
Have only one home
Switch off your air conditioning and only use it when it is absolutely necessary
Air condition only the room you are using
Trade your large/ four-wheel car for a small car with a small engine
Walk your kids to school or take them on public transport
Do not take holidays which involve flying
Sell your motorboat and buy a sailing boat

ACTION PLAN FOR THE NON-BELIEVERS OF THE DOGMA

Be proud of your position as it indicates independent thinking, open mind and not being swept up by the global warming information cascade( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYhCQv5tNsQ )
Point out that the science is not settled, and 97.2 percent support for climate change caused by human activities as a misrepresentation the findings (see, for example Cook et.al, Table 3, Environmental Research Letters 8 ,2013 with many different results including the 97.2 % which is based on small sub-sample of the total scientists surveyed or watch the funnies video on this by a Millennial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwviDPo4Rh4&app=desktop )
Point out the scientific facts which are inconsistent with the prediction of global warming (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYhCQv5tNsQ)
Point out the benefits of global warming including lower energy costs, better agricultural yields, less winter deaths, increase in green vegetation, more useable land (Canada, Siberia), better access to artic resources amongst many others.
Ask your friends to watch some YouTube videos which question the notion that global warming is caused by human activities (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE6QxBaIEv8……amongst many others )
Support nuclear energy

ACTION PLAN FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND CHILDREN

Do not waste your time on demonstrations, but learn about the scientific climate debate
Learn about the need for base load energy
Learn about the benefits of nuclear energy
Learn about the perils of lithium mining and battery disposal
Learn about carbon capture technology

In summary, do not accept global warming caused by humans as a dogma, rather please
