This gentleman made a very convincing statement concerning global warming.
Garrett Paul Sudweeks Full disclosure, I work in environmental compliance. A large piece of my employment stems from federal and state regulation. With that, I’d like to offer my biased opinion on the matter.
Point 1) the purpose of science is not to prove your hypothesis. The purpose is to challenge It. History shows that when a majority of “experts” are agreed and settled they are more often than not wrong. Their opinion is usually fueled by notoriety. It’s usually the outliers that challenge the accepted norm that come closer to the truth.
Point 2) assuming that 100% of climate change claims are undeniable fact, no real solutions are present. You’d have to cease life as we know it to stop emitting greenhouse gasses. No clothes, cars, brushing your teeth, breathing, digesting and so on. You cannot legislate the weather. The U.S. Is a country, not a planet. If we were to somehow stop our GHG emissions it would barely make a global dent.
Point 3) life has flourished on this planet with 5+ times more C02 in our atmosphere. The Polar Bears didn’t exist and insects were the size of cats, but plants grew at phenomenal rates and sizes. Drastic changes in GHG levels have also caused massive global changes that have pushed life to the brink.
Point 4) I have seen regulation intended to help the environment hurt it when taken to the extreme. Environmental compliance is a huge burden on company finance and cost of living. Companies need standards set to prevent them from cutting corners and damaging our communities. Out of control government that answers to no one can do just as much harm as unchecked companies. Solutions won’t come from who you vote for. They come from challenging accepted truth. That growth always brings new technologies that use resources more efficiently and makes quality of living cheaper and more accessible for everyone.
Point 5) and more importantly. Worldwide, the second (or third depending on your source) cause of death is respiratory infection. Developing countries use primitive methods of fuel to produce warmth, food, and light. Burning wood and dried dung increases the risk of respiratory infection. They cannot have access to cheap fuel sources ( coal and oil ) because of the political pressure placed in them by developed countries for the sake of the environment. We used cheap fuel to get where we are and then closed the door behind us. Burning coal may save more lives than the controversial alternative.
That’s my perspective. Take it with a grain of salt.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.”
As simple as it may seem, many seem to totally oblivious to it. Most if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues when an easy and simple solution should be obvious.
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
Their teachings have become convoluted and are no longer sensible. Because so many have lost sight of the basic universal truths, they think these values no longer apply. Mention age old values and many people would have no idea what you were talking about.
We cannot keep teaching beliefs that are not based on solid time worn principles that have endured the test of time. The laws of Nature and/ or Nature’s God cannot be denied without serious consequence.
