Global warming case has fallen asunder

IT is rather unlikely that any of us will still be alive 100 years from now. Consequently, we won’t learn of the disappointment expressed at the ridiculous attempts in our lifetime at trying to counter global warming in the belief it was manmade.

It will be akin to the notion of the 17th century church believing the earth was the centre of the universe. Except, of course, for all the resources, financial and otherwise, squandered by the global warming industry.

Attempts to prevent global warming would be as useless as efforts to control movements of the earth’s tectonic plates to prevent earthquakes or to try to move the moon closer to earth for shorter commuting. It will be apparent that all the efforts of the 20th and 21st centuries should have been to plan sound strategies to exploit the accepted notion that natural global warming is an inevitable cyclical phenomenon.

How gratifying to learn that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control (IPCC) and its spurious global warming findings have now come asunder.
