It is with great sadness that I am forced to concede the following our planet is in the throws of dramatic climate change on a massive and devastating scale. Though I have resisted the evidence, I must concede that the proof is irrefutable. I know that this will shock many who read this blog and who are familiar with my skepticism related to climate catastrophists.
For those who are wondering what changed my mind, let me provide some quotes from an April issue of Newsweek. These should give you a good idea of why I have shifted in my paradigm:
“There are ominous signs that the earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production â€“ with serious political implications for just about every nation on earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only ten years from now.”
“The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard pressed to keep up with it The average temperature around the equator has risen by a fraction of a degree â€“ a fraction that in some areas can mean drought and desolation. Last April, in the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded, 148 twisters killed more than 300 people and caused half a billion dollars’ worth of damage in thirteen U.S. states.”
“To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather If the climate change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic.”
“A major climatic change would force economic and social adjustments on a worldwide scale because the global patterns of food production and population that have evolved are implicitly dependent on the climate of the present century”
“The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climate change once the results become grim reality.”
So there you have it the accumulation of massive amounts of evidence proves that we are experiencing dire changes in weather patterns around the globe. These changes in weather patterns are beginning to affect the world populations and will continue to do so unless something can be done about it.
The science is quite clear, though many politicians and stubborn skeptics (like myself previously) seem to want to bury their heads in the sand and ignore the proof that is right in front of their eyes. Within 10 years we will be feeling the effects of this devastating climate change resulting in social and political upheaval and massive food shortages and famine on a worldwide scale. An increase in the frequency and strength of tornadoes can already be seen as the latest proof of the changes in our planet.
I’m not waiting around for any more proof. I am joining the increasing numbers of world citizens who believe that if we wait too much longer, it’s going to be too late for humanity. So what can we do? We need to take immediate and drastic action in order to stop this problem in its tracks.
Here’s what I am planning on doing:
1) I will be running my car 24 hours a day/7 days a week to increase the amount of heat producing/heat retaining carbon dioxide/monoxide that is released into the atmosphere. I know that this will be a huge financial burden to my family, but in this time of global urgency, each of us owes it to the human race to INCREASE our warmth-producing carbon footprint as much as possib.e
2) Whenever I am home, I will be running the heat in my house with the doors open so that I can, in fact, heat the great outdoors. I have begun to hand out flyers to all of the homes in my neighborhood encouraging them to do the same thing.
3) Each night I will be lighting large bonfires in my backyard, which will serve to release, both heat AND carbon into the atmosphere, a “double-whammy” in fighting our planet’s impending catastrophic climate change.
4) I have enrolled in an Inuit (Eskimo) survival school to be prepared for the new methods of travel and food gathering that we’ll have to deal with in the coming times.
5) I have joined a citizen’s group called BOP (Blanket Our Planet). We are collecting funds to pay for the creation of gargantuan blankets that will be draped over the polar icecaps in an effort to warm up the planet’s atmosphere.
6) I have joined another group called MoP (More People) that is encouraging the widespread, indiscriminate breeding of humanity around the globe aimed at increasing the number of breathing humans on the planet. This group also encourages the indiscriminate breeding of livestock such as cows, pigs and lamas. Larger numbers of these animals can also help to raise the overall global temperature of our planet.
It isn’t a question of if but WHEN the climate change will take its toll on our planet and on the human race. The only thing we can do now is to try our best to lessen its affects for future generations.
I encourage anyone who is reading this blog to do whatever they can to combat the coming ICE AGE!!!
John adds: Scott, you realize that you’re going to send even more people into “eco-therapy” as a result of this post, don’t you.
Also, don’t miss this great post at Newsbusters which chronicles 150 years of climate hysteria at the NY Times.
