There is no doubt that the overall temperatures around the world are getting warmer, but historical truths debunk the concept that it’s all due to modern industrialization and air pollutants.
To begin with, one has to realize that the Genesis Flood took place about 4,364 years ago. The mechanics of the Genesis Flood would have created the perfect scenario and conditions that led to the Great Ice Age, which probably started forming about 15-200 years after the Flood. The Ice Age lasted about 500 years. That means that for the past 3.664 years, the earth has been slowly and steadily warming up, melting the ice sheets and glaciers that covered much of North America, Europe, Russia and Greenland. Those remnants of those glaciers and ice sheets are still receding.
Knowing this basic fact, then realizing that during the past several thousand years, the temperatures around the earth have been very cyclic, with warm and cold trends that fluctuate from time to time, just as the infamous hole in the ozone layer has been found to fluctuate in size over time, getting larger and smaller and so on.
If the global warming aspect of climate change was purely due to much of today’s modern industrialization and air pollutants, then how does one explain the global heat wave that occurred in 1896 or the fact 2013 was one of the coldest years on record of that from 1996 to 2013, there was a 17-year period where there was no global warming?
In 1896, the entire earth was hit with a record heat wave the killed many hundreds of people.
“In January 1896, a savage blast ‘like a furnace’ stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks. The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states. Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days (1)(2)(3). The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight.”
“By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the streets. Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, the thermometer recording 109F at midnight. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F. On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that ‘more deaths are hourly expected’. By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels). Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains. As reported at the time, the government felt the situation was so serious that to save lives and ease the suffering of its citizens they added cheaper train services:”
“The Commissioner of Railways promised a deputation of members of Parliament to run a special train every Friday at holiday excursion rates for the next month to enable settlers resident in the Western part of the colony to reach the mountains to escape the great heat prevailing.”
“It got hotter and hotter and the crowded trains ran on more days of the week. The area of exodus was extended to allow not only refugees from western NSW to flee to the Blue Mountains but also people to escape via train from the Riverina to the Snowy Mountains. The stories are heartbreaking. ‘A child sent to the mountains to escape the city heat died at the moment the train arrived.’ ‘Six infants have died at Goulburn since January 1 through the excessive heat.’ Towns were losing their esteemed, lamenting the loss of the good reverend, or of their well known miners. Children were orphaned…”
“With this and people dropping dead in the streets from Perth through Adelaide to Sydney, the heat wave was described as being universal from west to east . It went north into Queensland and south through Victoria.…twice, by which time Australians considered themselves to be ‘Under Fire’.
“Later in 1896, heat waves also occurred in India, Burma, Borneo, America. (It was bad in New York. Listen here.) There was heat in England, Germany and Spain. 1896 was an example of extreme weather. [It was obviously the fault of the evil power stations, eh? Just 14 years earlier, Edison had built the first coal-fired electric generating station. If only people had understood just how dangerous it was.”
Another report about the 1896 heatwave read:
“During the summer of 1896, a 10-day heat wave killed nearly 1,500 people, many of them tenement-dwellers, across New York City…”
“‘This was 10 days [with temperatures reaching] 90 degrees at street level and 90 percent humidity, with temperatures not even dropping at night,’ Kohn says. ‘No wind — so at night there was absolutely no relief whatsoever.’”
1) Studies show that the world was warmer than it is today during the Roman Empire and when the Vikings were plundering Europe and North America. In fact, even in the 19th Century, there were discussions surrounding the fact that the Vikings could settle the northernmost reaches of Greenland and North America because there was less ice coverage.
2) During the second week in December, the U.S. saw more than 2000 record low temperatures and record snowfalls, according to the National Weather Service and HamWeather records center. There were 606 record low temperatures, 1,234 low maximum temperatures and 285 record snowfalls across the country. In the meantime there were only 98 high temperature records and 141 high minimum temperature records.
3) Satellite data shows that the polar bears have at least one reason to be happy this year – Arctic sea ice coverage was up 50 percent over last year’s record low coverage. Contrary to Al Gore’s prediction that there would be no polar ice cap by this year, sea ice coverage spanned nearly 2,100 cubic miles by the end of this year’s melting season, up from about 1,400 cubic last year.
4) Global cooling is on the way, according to an increasing number of scientists. German scientists have predicted that based on declining sunspot activity and natural climate oscillation the world will cool over the next century. Temperatures will eventually drop to levels corresponding with the “little ice age” of 1870.
5) Other scientists have also been coming around to the global cooling side of things. The BBC reported that Professor Mike Lockwood of the Reading University predicts that at the current rate of decline in solar activity, another “Little Ice Age” could envelope Northern Europe.
6) The United Nations climate bureaucracy’s latest global warming report was called “hilarious” by a leading scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Richard Lindzen said the UN’s report “has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence” because they continue to proclaim with ever greater certainty that mankind is causing global warming, despite their models continually being wrong.
It’s clear when you start looking at the scientific evidence without the biased blinders of modern global warming/climate change hysteria, that one will see that most of the political hype behind the movement is not what it’s reported to be. The earth is still recovering from the Great Ice Age and global temperatures have fluctuated in historical cycles, getting warmer and then cooler and then warmer again.
Before you go running off screaming that we need to take all of these drastic and very expensive steps to save the polar ice and keep the oceans from rising and flooding many coastal cities that it will probably happen anyway, naturally. We don’t need carbon taxes or other socialist controls. We need to look back at ALL of the facts to understand what’s really happening.
