As it would seem the cow dung is just starting to hit the fan with regards to the real inconvenient truth about Global Warming; it's only a matter of time before we're all running around screaming bull shhhh, cough, clear the throat and continue.
Okay so funny ha ha, you're asking me where is this going, G?
We're going wherever you grow things, raise livestock, or even so much as pick up poop from your own backyard...philosophically speaking, wherever you go, there you are, and knee deep. Truth is, and all kidding aside, all this hullabaloo about CO2 emissions sent me searching for in depth answers, and if one really started to take the time to investigate "global warming" I can assure you, it will only take a minute to discover we have been taken for a ride, in a hybrid of course.
What is udderly fascinating is the amount of methane gas released into the world -- which is far worse than any amount of CO2 -- produced by cows, horses, goats, sheep, and camels each and every day on the planet -- to which we can attribute more evil emissions than all the planes, trains and automobiles combined -- Gore seems to be all fat and happy in Tennessee ignoring that little tidbit of scientific data. Attention, Mr. Vice President, bullshit -- or would you rather me say, you lie.
Oh, and it's not just live agricultural output, but also that which you wouldn't expect, like rice fields, and wetlands, and termites, and permafrost, and oceans, and pretty much any other body of water...that put out too, as in a little methane action.
Like I said towards the tail end yesterday, when you include even opening our mouths to speak, pretty much everything and everyone emits gas -- while some more than others, and while many may have a good point, for others, it is simply a lot of hot air -- this would be where picking and choosing who we actually listen to is a key component.
But even if we were to return to horse and buggy, wherever you go, there you are.
It's not like all of a sudden our world would miraculously change under the new regulations and restrictions, as the cyclical nature of global warming and cooling would continue just as it has done for the last hundreds of thousands of years without so much as a hiccup, or shall we say fart -- oh my, doesn't the word still have the power to make us laugh.
I did find that converting the manure piled up today into fuel could generate as much as 3% of North America's entire needs, or approximately 100 Billion kilowatt hours of power; which I gather isn't too shabby considering the source, but I couldn't help but get stuck on what our world would look like, and worse, how it would smell when processing the stuff like Ding Dongs (do we make those anymore?).
Anyway, besides the whole issue with CO2 being produced by everything and everyone on the planet, in addition to the planes, trains and automobiles -- it just doesn't hold water to the truth about the cycle of temperature and it's correlation to CO2 linking it to be the main culprit of global warming. Essentially, all models of temperature rising show that what rose first was not CO2 as Gore would have you believe, but the exact opposite, higher temperatures precede the release of CO2.
Last year, 19,000 scientists began to sign a petition risking reputation and commanding attention:
"...There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing, or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate..."As of today - 31,000 scientists and counting have declared in unison a resounding round of bullshit.
And while we were including polar bears into the conversation yesterday, it should be noted that NO wild species has ever gone extinct due to rising temperatures during even the unprecedented warm decades of the last hundred years. Admittedly, we know that the Arctic ice may very well be at what is considered a low point, according to the modern times -- but the Antarctic is experiencing record high levels of ice making, leaving all of the state of the art sub-zero Kenmore's combined in the dust.
And having not really looked into all of this until recently, it is interesting to note that the polar ice caps also have their own particular climate cycles, operating slightly different than the rest of the world. I fancy it to be similar to a women's monthly cycle -- you don't mess with mother nature and the best rule of thumb is to leave the girl alone for awhile, we come around eventually...
...and taking it a carbon footprint further, even polar bears bear some responsibility of their own making, given that they breathe just like you and me; not to mention, what goes in must come out sometime.
While history proves, storms and droughts occur less during a warming cycle -- this having something to do with ocean temperatures, cloud formation, amount of radiation from the sun, and number of sunspots themselves.
You also may be happy to note that even humans adapt better when a warmer planet is beneath our feet as the number of cases of death from climate change decreases, for the sad truth is more people are killed by cold than heat (hence why in the seventies the scientific data had everybody running scared with the thought that we were all going to freeze to death).
It really all gets down to the elementary scientific task of recording data coupled with a continuous natural phenomenon at play which creates the illusions and realities of climate change --
the highs and lows rise and fall
like the ebb and flow of the tide
and it is really no big deal.
Humans do it;
Polar Bears do it;
even the birds and the bees do it... you know, adapt. It's in our genes.
Make it a Good Day, G
We currently have partly cloudy skies breaking early to a sunny day here in SO CAL.
The illusions of a Global Warming Catastrophe in the making is good for one thing; and that being a rise in consciousness and awareness of ways to take care of our planet. Nothing pro or con to the argument can deny we must always be vigilant and accountable for our actions as humans being blessed with life here on Mother Earth. Our duty to our children and the life we share with other creatures demands our obedience and continued efforts to clean up our act -- and for that, we can appreciate all the hype and hoopla -- even if it is a load of crap...bullshhh cough, clear the throat now let's continue
