It is bad enough with many US born-again Christians believing in the Apocalyptic End of Times, we also have the 12/12/12 Mayan End of Times hysteria and to top this dreadful noxious mix, we have the environmentalists screaming about their own End of Times, too. That is, we are all already doomed! With all this negative hysteria, it is hard to sort out the hard science or cause and effect. One thing is absolutely certain: the out of control population boom of the equatorial regions is very bad for our species and has to be stopped somehow.
Mother Nature does this in rather crude ways. Humans can do this via birth control methods. The shocking thing here is, the Born Again Christians are anti-birth control, the religious fanatics across the spectrum are mainly anti-women’s rights and anti-birth control and the liberals who are fearful of ecological collapse are too dainty to suggest the Chinese communist solution of enforced birth controls so we hurtle towards ecological collapse due to deforestation of the equatorial jungles and billions of desperately poor people stripping the land like locusts in a drought.
Virtually every article, every scientific meeting avoids the Chinese communist solution to these looming problems. Here is the latest ‘we are all doomed!’ announcements which craftily avoids even mentioning the Chinese communist solution: Apocalypse soon – Environment – Salon.com
According to the group of more than 20 scientists responsible for these observations, published this week in Nature, these shifts could also be pushing the Earth toward a tipping point — a round of irreversible planet-wide changes. During the last great transformation of the planet, when miles upon miles of ice receded and left the planet in its current interglacial states, about 30 percent of the planet’s surface transitioned from ice-covered wasteland to landscapes more closely resembling the ones we know today. The shifts that we humans are responsible for are more dramatic and are happening faster.
Actually, this is typical exaggeration at work. The dominant species of Ice Age Eurasia and North America are nearly TOTALLY different from today. The landscape was TREMENDOUSLY different back then. The difference between some trees cut down in rain forests versus half of the northern hemisphere under a mile of ice is monumentally different.
It is true humans are destroying other species as we multiply like crazy. And the fix is obvious and simple: birth controls applied uniformly so that religious cults can’t evade this and breed like crazy while everyone else shows some restraint. This is the problem: the only way to do this is to have the Chinese communists impose the child bearing laws on the world. This isn’t going to happen due to obvious reasons unless the Chinese do manage to take over the planet entirely which isn’t impossible, by the way.
The main story here is how scientists are yelling about the destruction of the environment while offering no realistic solutions. The global warming business focusing nearly entirely on CO2 production schemes has basically totally ignored the human population boom occurring mainly in the hottest parts of the world. It would seem to me that hot=more babies, no? Humans thrive in warm places. We managed to colonize the cold places but only by dint of tremendous effort. Multiplying in hot places is easy, the children can spend nearly all their time outside and extra food is generally easy for them to scavenge.
The reason why the jungle regions of the planet are seeing more humans is simple: modern medical technologies vaccinate these people from former deadly diseases which used to keep the population down.
Since worries about the looming overpopulation problem has been virtually terminated due to the realistic understanding that the only method of stopping this equatorial population boom is to have Chinese communists do it, the ecology movement focuses nearly entirely only on the CO2 business. That is, we are all going to roast to death even though humans LOVE roasting a lot. Here is the latest story showing clearly the global warming people cannot understand what is right in front of their noses: Green Car Congress: Study finds ocean warmth and atmospheric CO2 concentrations were decoupled during Miocene period; suggests role of ocean circulation, clouds and water vapor feedback
A new study based on deep-sea sediment cores, published in the journal Nature, has found that during the Miocene period ~12–5 million years ago, climate was decoupled from atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations. During that time, temperatures across a broad swath of the North Pacific were 9–14 °F warmer than today, while atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations remained low—200–350 ppm, i.e., near values prior to the Industrial Revolution.
Most studies of Earth’s climate have consistently found a strong correlation between global climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide—i.e., during warm periods, high concentrations of CO2 persist, while colder times correspond to relatively low levels.
We propose that a relatively deep global thermocline, reductions in low-latitude gradients in sea surface temperature, and cloud and water vapor feedbacks may help to explain the warmth of the late Miocene. Additional shoaling of the thermocline after 5 Myr ago probably explains the stronger coupling between pco2, sea surface temperatures and climate that is characteristic of the more recent Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs.
—LaRiviere et al.
These data provide the first evidence that late Miocene sea surface temperatures were significantly warmer than today across a large swath of the North Pacific. The research team found that sea surface temperatures appeared to be highest in the early part of the late Miocene (around 12 to 13 million years ago), and gradually cooled throughout the late Miocene.
It’s a surprising finding, given our understanding that climate and carbon dioxide are strongly coupled to each other. In the late Miocene, there must have been some other way for the world to be warm. One possibility is that large-scale patterns in ocean circulation, determined by the very different shape of the ocean basins at the time, allowed warm temperatures to persist despite low levels of carbon dioxide.
HAHAHA…so, the data doesn’t match the ideology! So there must have been some tricky, hard to find cause that made it ‘unexpectedly warm’! HAHAHA. Right! It never ceases to amaze me how people can shoehorn facts into various belief models to keep their precious belief models intact.
To this day, no one really knows why the earth began having these systematic, periodic and rhythmically timed ice ages that get colder and colder each cycle. Hints abound. The fact that the Miocene began very warm and gradually became cooler and cooler is a strong hint. That is, the solar energy output from our old sun has changed over the eons and it is becoming slightly colder each cycle.
The exclusion of the sun from theories about earth temperatures puzzled me for years. Why do these climatologists do this? I would guess it is due to how they are instructed in school and how they are tested before they are certified. Anyone who believes the sun is the chief cause and engine of climate change is booted out of the classroom and has to go into astronomy or work on Wall Street.
Just as astronomers struggle to figure out the obvious nature of why galaxies are universally falling towards other galaxies, the climate change people have to recognize that the real problem for humans is our old star, the sun, giving us troubles. We are ultimately doomed to destruction unless we set up colonies all over the galactic plane but then that merely gives us more opportunities to freak out over the End of Times, no? An endless problem for humans no matter where we take up residence.
On the other side of the ecological merry-go-round is the The World Future Council: Future Policy Award because they nominated Japan for Future Policy Award for innovative initiatives for dealing with ocean pollution and the ecology of the Pacific Ocean! Good gods! That is beyond demented! The country polluting half of the planet’s ocean ecology with noxious levels of radiation…is hilarious when we consider this organization also nominated the US, home of the Gulf Oil disaster, for the same award!
More Fukushima news from China: Scrap metals from Japan found radioactive. One of the commonest propaganda points against China is how the evil commies keep exporting tainted stuff. Of course, the US and Japan do this, too. But we aren’t supposed to notice this fine detail.
