Those Whom Know The Least About Science, Deny Global Warming.

I was speaking with a person about his inaccuracies of denying the science facts on global warming. He parroted what he has been misled to repeat as if it were fact, but the real problem is that he does not even have the rudimentary basics of science to even understand what he is repeating or to comprehend the counter arguments that negate what is being said.

His latest rhetorical misinformation device he has heard to misleading arguments against the existence of climate change is that the “earth’s atmospheric temperature has not risen in the last 15 years.” He then went onto say that the Obama administration, (because it’s all Obama’s fault), for having his federal agencies collude together to promote a “Global Warming Agenda.”

Basically, I told him in a kind way, that I was glad to have the opportunity to hear those words, from what I could only describe as an alternate reality he was living in. I then went on to explain that more than 90% of the heat generated from increased carbon emissions gets absorbed into the ocean, not into the atmosphere. I then passed on the scenario of the “Butterfly Affect”, that any changes in ocean temperature will eventually have “a pronounced effect” on atmospheric temperature. Indeed, recent studies show that global temperatures are set to rise rapidly in the face of our increasingly warm and acidic oceans. To say that we have no warming is just not factual.

I then proceeded to address the assertion that federal government agencies such as “The Department of Defense, NASA, and NOAA,” were colluding to promote environmentalists’ agendas. We trust these scientists to send our astronauts into space, to deliver rovers to the surface of Mars, sending data and pictures back to us. You think these people know what they’re talking about? How about the United States Navy who are constantly doing scientific studies in our oceans as so much of our National Defense starts there? So you would contend that the Commander in chief of our Pacific Command is colluding as one of “Obama’s Global Warming Puppets”? I consoled this person that if he wanted to ignore the federal government, to live in a world in which you think the federal government colludes with itself to make up things that aren’t true, Well Okay. I then gave him examples of the “Private Sector” such as the property casualty insurance and reinsurance industry. Many of the insurance agencies in my area, close to the ocean’s coast line, are dropping home owners because they have billions of dollars riding on getting it right, and they say climate change is real, carbon pollution is causing it, and we’ve got to do something about it.

In summation, every major scientific society and the entire property casualty reinsurance industry are telling us there is “Global Warming and is a concern to our quality of life in the near and foreseeable future. Responsible Physicists have been warning us for years now.

This is when the WTF moment came out of his mind through his mouth, “Well there you go….Physicists….they are not even real Climatologists.” ?!?!?!?

So I will pass this on to my readers should you ever hear such stupidity from one of these Wing Nuts.
Physis derived from the ancient Greek, “physica”, meaning “Nature”. Physics is the field of study concerning the working of nature. This branch of science was developed out of philosophy, and was thus referred to as natural philosophy. To this person and those like him, they know nothing about the Science of Nature.

  1. Funny you should post this now. A lot of people have asked “How does Climate Change affect me?” You mentioned a VERY important fact about how Climate Change is affecting the oceans and lakes.

    At 2:00 a.m. this morning the Toledo, Ohio Water Board announced that the water was toxic, probably from the Algal Bloom on Lake Erie. Half a million people in Northwest Ohio depend on this water source. People are panicking. The governor has declared a state of emergency. The Ohio National Guard has been activated. Police have been called to break up riots at stores selling bottled water. Hoarders have been selling water for over $20 per case in parking lots. School activities have been canceled. Businesses that use water are closed. F.E.M.A. is on standby. Emergency centers are being set up at schools. The local news broadcasts are on constantly with information.

    Sound like a plausible scenario as a result of climate change? Well, it couldn’t happen to a city in the Midwest of the United States. Oh wait, it is going on right now!!!

    I must commend you on an excellent piece which thoroughly debunks the moronically cynical climate change deniers. You should go on Hannoty’s hour of fiction sometime and really straighten that horse’s ass out. It is an absolutely unforgivable CRIME that fossil fuel advocates like the notorious Koch brothers and the lying, bought-out pro-fossil fuel thugs over at Fox “News” keep preying on ignorance and LIE to so many stupid people…keep up the great job of inforning the public, my friend…

  3. Hello NON,
    It is good to hear from you. I thank you for visiting my new site to complement my Co-hosting on the radio show, “Here Be Monsters….The Sunday Show.”

    As you have mentioned that Ohio is also having some issues with allege blooms to the point the water source for Toledo is poison to drink. Officials are also concerned with Buckeye Lake near Columbus too. Yes, Local Effects of Climate Change.
