More Climate Change propaganda

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The climate change propagandists are flapping about the North West Passage and holding it up as a shining example of how the evil capitalist human race is destroying the planet.

The North West Passage is the stretch of sea where the Arctic ice meets North America.  Usually the only ships that can navigate the North West Passage are big ice breakers and only then during the summer melt.  However, the Vikings are known to have made use of part of the North West Passage, around a couple of Canadian arctic islands which demonstrates that the North West Passage has been navigable by simple wooden ships in the past and that being permanently blocked by ice isn’t the natural state for the North West Passage.

When I read the propagandists claim that the North West Passage opening up again was down to anthropogenic climate change the first thing that came to my mind was not “we’re doooooooomed” but “ok, it’s been open before then it was blocked and now it’s opening again – so what?”.  Surely anyone with an ounce of common sense would look at the fact that the North West Passage has been open in the past when the only polution humans put into the atmosphere was from the odd blacksmiths furnace or a particularly rancid fart and come to the conslusion that this is just a natural event?

    You would have thought so, but clearly not.

    This is another example of the lack of common sense and the attempt to create moral panic. They rely on people no looking a further back than a couple of articles.

    My fridge was accidently turned off and it defrosted, does it make it faulty, no, I just turned it back on.

    Isn’t this similar.

    Nature turns it off when needed, then turns it back on when needed!!!

    There is a famous sottish painting of someone skating on an edinburgh pond, that has not been frozen in my fathers lifetime.

    What about the Thames fairs, where the thames froze and they had markets that lasted for months

    What about the Goths, who came riding across the frozen rhine on christmas day and pilaged the roman empire.

    The weather changes but we cannot seem to accept that the small portion of it we have logged is not the be all and end all of the roller coaster of the world wide weather systems

    My dad remembers when the River Severn last froze at Buildwas, after the “s” where the water is quite slow and he’s only 54 (or thereabouts, I forget). He also remembers a summer so hot you couldn’t walk outside in bare feet. Climate change is naturally occurring, it happens on a small scale every few years and it happens on a large scale over centuries or millenia. Tyring to extrapolate any kind of accurate prediction from climate data is like trying to nail jelly to a wall. The “scientists” know this, they’re just making too much money out of peddling their myths. They’re in the best possible position to be in too – when a climate change disaster fails to happen they can claim it’s because of the measures put in place because of their predictions. They can’t lose!

    summer of 76 was like that, too hot to walk on the road in bare feet, it went soft and sqidgy
