Anyone who has flown over the earth can testify, it is a big planet.
We see all kinds of facts and figures from both sides of the debate about global warming, some claiming global warming to be true, others, not so much. Are any of the facts true? I don’t know for sure. Scientists, as well as most people today, often contort the facts to support their own interests.
Have I seen any effects I can attribute to global warming or global cooling? NO, we had some severe winters in the 70s and the experts all said we were going to die from a coming ice age. Now it’s global warming. I’ve had people who live in some isolated inland location tell me the oceans are rising, I live six miles from the Gulf of Mexico, the sea level is in the same place it was twenty-five years ago.
Some people have told me the oceans are rising in Puerto Rico, but not Florida? How does that work? I’ve been to Puerto Rico several times, we never went through any locks like you do on the Ohio River or Panama Canal, water seeks its own level, if the oceans were rising in Puerto Rico, they would also be rising in Florida.
Of course, the people I have talked to that make these claims live a thousand miles inland and have probably never been to the ocean.
From what I’ve seen , where I grew up in southeastern Indiana, the environment is cleaner than it was in the fifties. There are now eagles, beaver, deer and many other types of wildlife living there that weren’t there decades ago. At one time you could almost walk across the Ohio River there was so much debris in the river.
The smog in the major cities, as a general rule, seems less than a few decades ago and the skies are much clearer now.
From what I have seen, the environment is a lot cleaner now than it was several years ago. If eco-nazis are serious about this , they should go after the real culprits, China, and India.
The climate is always changing, remains of people are found frozen under several feet of ice, that proves at one time the earth was warmer in that area than it is now.
We were having a mini ice age in seventeen seventy-eight, hence the rough winter at Valley Forge. In the general scheme of things I don’t think humans or volcanoes have much to do with the weather, it’s just a natural cycle the earth travels through. Someone told me once that figures can’t lie, but liars can figure. I think there is a lot of truth in that, and neither side probably knows any more about it than the other.
