The IPCC expects people to believe that humanity’s burning of fossil fuels will increase global temperature by 3C and cause sea level to rise 6 meters. These changes the IPCC is telling the world will bring catastrophic consequences to humanity and the Earth (1). Yet, the same people pushing anthropogenic global warming seem oblivious that during the last interglacial warm–up, the global temperature was 8C warmer, and the oceans 8 meters higher (2). What is even more egregious, the IPCC fear-mongers can not say how much the temperature will rise during this current interglacial warmup or when it will end. The IPCC is adamant that humanity must stop burning fossil fuels to save the planet from warming more, even if they have no clue how much warmer it will be before this interglacial warmup period ends! The IPCC’s position is that the burning of fossil fuel is the cause of all future ocean rise and interglacial warming that has already raised the oceans approximately 120 meters (394 feet) has magically stopped. Humanity is the protagonist causing an ocean rise of 12 to 18 inches per century. (3) It is astounding how many have bought into this nonsense, including those entrusted to steer humanity’s Ship of State are terrified and acting so.
If global warming experts have it wrong (4) and anthropogenic CO2 (5) is not causing Climate Change, and the warming and sea rise continues, the changes and time humanity wasted trying to stop the inevitable will be I’ll prepared to adapt. Worse, if the interglacial warmup ends and a severe cooldown begins, people will die. Ice Ages shorten growing seasons and increase droughts, that reducing food production. (6) The energy needed to mitigate the effects if cold will not be available. Wind and solar power will not be sufficient. The question is, if either of the above scenarios happens, do those who suffer because those running the Ship of State got it wrong have a right to punish those in power who screwed up?
