>Climate Change – Hedging one’s bets


>

I was reading a post today about how climate change regulations would affect transportation in Australia (see reference below).

The article contains a well structured list of Climate Change events. But just for one moment, think on this:

When AGW alarmists are spending so much time, effort and money trying to convince the nations that we are all going to fry ourselves, unless we start reducing our carbon emissions immediately – IF NOT sooner – and begin taxing each other to kingdom come, via a ‘bounty’ to be paid to the UN …….. All the while of course, there is strong evidence that the planet (according to this list) is freezing its toes off…… what or who I ask you, is a person to believe?

The entire article is a fantastic read, and my thanks go to Author Shawn Beilfuss, who points out the many shortcomings of the Governmental System in Australia – with particular reference to AGW and the transportation industry.

As the article says:
It is hard to force anthropogenic global warming (AGW) policies on society if it is obvious to everyone that our climate is cooling. Thus, by using the terms “climate change,” governments can enact their expensive and poorly justified policies regardless of what is happening in our climate. Cooling news:

Even more worrying, politicians like those in Australia and many scientists are now so deeply invested emotionally and financially in AGW theory that they have thrown out any adherence to the basic tenets of the scientific method:

1. Define the question
2. Gather information and resources (observe)
3. Form hypothesis
4. Perform experiment and collect data
5. Analyze data
6. Interpret data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for new hypothesis
7. Publish results
8. Retest (frequently done by other scientists)


These politicians and scientists, and even individual supporters in the public domain, have essentially stopped thinking beyond #7 above, and still to this day, attack anyone who dares to repeatedly cycle through the process and raise questions in step #8. This is a common behavior in people who have let significant emotional and/or financial investment decouple themselves from rational and introspective questioning. Attack and dismiss the non-believers, the “deniers.”
