Climate Change Myth Debunked

climate change myth

Climate Change Myth | This is the Athabasca Glacier in the Canadian Rockies. It's the poster child for the man-made climate change group. The fanatics point to this glacier's rapid retreat and melting as proof positive that man is ruining the planet! It's a climate-change myth. They only tell you half the truth, if that much.

Climate change is real. It's constantly changing, but man has little to do with it.

Are you on the side of the debate thinking that man-made CO2 exhaust is going to create devastation?

Do you believe the world is going to end in 12 years (this sentence was written a month or so after a freshman congresswoman from NY made the prediction) because of climate change?

Stop and ask yourself WHY you believe this?

What you believe about man-made climate change, is it true?

Or, do you believe it to be true just because you heard others say it was true and you choose not to do the hard work to discern the actual truth?

Do you believe it just because so many others including politicians, paid talking-heads and paid pundits on cable opinion, not news,  shows say man-made climate change is real? If so, you're a victim of the powerful and seductive psychological trigger of social proof. Read all about the power of social proof here.

Do you believe in data provided to you by scientists you've never met? Do you realize the scientists have their own personal beliefs and may ignore data that conflicts with their inner ideology?

Do you realize many scientists get grant money that forces a bias in their work? Do you remember how the UK scientists providing climate-change data were shown to be dishonest? Look up those stories online.

Have you applied any critical thinking skills to the debate? In other words, have you based your beliefs on hard data you've studied or are you just trusting others that are supposedly doing the critical thinking for you?

You need to apply critical thinking to the climate change issue. It demands it or otherwise, you could find yourself on the wrong side of history just like all those scientists of old who swore the Earth was flat.

Think about that. Think how vicious that argument was hundreds of years ago and how those that disagreed with the flat-earthers were persecuted.

Be wary of doublespeak spewing from the mouths and keyboards of needy scientists that grovel for grant money from liberal think tanks. These groups push the man-made climate-change narrative. The scientists are obligated to give the think tanks baked data. It's basic psychology. Read all about reciprocity here.

Climate Change Myth Debunked - Look At Rocks For the Truth

My college degree is in geology. Think about the old saying cast in stone and what it means. The true story of climate change is cast in the geologic record all over the world. The facts locked in the rocks are irrefutable.

Your feelings about man-made climate change are rooted in your inner ideology. When a core ideology issue is attacked by an objecting argument, it's normal for you to reject what you're hearing, reading or seeing. The global warming crowd, well now it's climate change, defends their beliefs ignoring the hard-core reality in the rocks all around them.

Here are some basic facts that prove man-made climate change is folly:

  • vast continental glaciers have advanced and retreated in North America four times in the past 2,000,000 years
  • no CO2-belching factories, buses, cars, trucks, coal-fired power plants, etc. existed during that time
  • mountains in the Northeast USA have giant glacial scratches proving the glaciers were there
  • enormous glacial outwash deposits are scattered all over the Northeast and Midwest USA from the glaciers
  • New York State's Finger Lakes were created by the continental glaciers
  • Central Park in New York City has exposed bedrock with deep glacial striations

Geologic data contained in and on top of rocks can't be baked by scientists. Rocks, sand, and gravel tell no lies. If you want the truth, you look at geologic data and ignore biased scientists.

You can see evidence of climate change in New Hampshire geology. But we didn't spew out CO2 to create the continental ice and then melt it all!

New York City Glacial Striations - Evidence Abounds

You can spend a day or two or three examining all of the continental glaciation facts in and about New York City.

This past article in the New York Times offers you some stunning illustrations, facts, and history.

Athabasca Glacier Facts - The Cold Truth

It's important to realize the man-made climate change believers point to the Athabasca Glacier in the Canadian Icefields as proof that evil man is to blame for climate change!

Another key point is I've walked on the Athabasca Glacier. It's tiny and it's always been tiny. The glacier is maybe 3 miles long and only 2,000 feet wide.

It's thin. It might only be several hundred feet thick at most.

Since the late 1800s, the time frame we've been spewing CO2 into the atmosphere, the glacier has retreated less than one mile.

That equals about 37 feet 6 inches of melting per year. You can confirm this with ease. Go do it now.

What would you say if I told you glaciers thousands and thousands of times bigger and thousands of feet thick melted much faster? Think how fast the climate would have to change and how hot it must have been to make this happen.

Keep reading and keep your mind open.

This is cross bedded sand and small gravel in central New Hampshire. It's far above the current river bed of the Pemigewasset River. The last continental glacier's meltwater deposited this sand about 12,000 years ago. I took this photo in 2017 at the Pemigewasset Valley Fish & Game Club. Credit card is for scale.

Continental Glacier Melt Facts

The last continental glacier was massive. It covered the north pole and extended down and past Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The tremendous glacier left a nice conversation piece for you to go look at.

It's called the Doane Rock - a glacial erractic boulder.

In addition, consider these additional continental glacier melting facts:

Summary - Always Look At Rocks for the Truth

The massive continental glaciers were thousands of feet thick. They covered tens of thousands of square miles. The minuscule Athabasca glacier is a tiny pin prick on a map compared to the huge ice sheets.

The massive ice sheets melted at a far faster rate than the Athabasca glacier is retreating. That evidence is undeniable.

There was no man-made CO2 around during the four periods of continental glaciation.

Al Gore and the man-made climate-change groups are telling you lies to make vast sums of money.

If you want the truth, always follow the money and study the rocks.

Remember, rocks can't lie, but Al Gore and scientists that get grant money can and do lie.

In closing, I'll not be arguing with you in the comments below. I can't change your inner being, even though you're on the wrong side of history on this issue.

Just as history eventually showed that scientists and experts were wrong about blood-letting, the earth being the center of the solar system / universe and the earth supposedly was flat, you may live to see that man-made climate change is just not true.
