Feedback: Baseless Claims
Ken Green makes a gross understatement when he states: "Climate alarmists don't have extraordinary evidence." The only evidence for global warming caused by CO2 emissions is a 23-year period from 1975 to 1998 during which rapidly increasing emissions are concurrent with increases in global temperatures. Prior to this was a 33-year period of global cooling contemporaneous with a 16-gigatonne per year increase in CO2 emissions due to postwar industrialization, and prior to that was a 32-year period of rapid warming with only half a gigatonne per year of emissions increase.
The 21st century has been marked by rapid increases in global CO2 emissions, but no global warming. The world has been cooling steadily since 2002 at a rate that will bring us to another Little Ice Age by the end of this century if this cooling does not reverse. Only global warming rhetoric and misinformation have dramatically increased, and the repercussions from this fraud have devastated the poorest people.
The worst repercussion is the global food crisis from Kyoto biofuel initiatives which has fuel crops replacing basic food crops, causing starvation for millions of people because they no longer can afford to eat. It is incomprehensible how world leaders can be so intimidated by these self-righteous climate alarmists that they allow this atrocity to continue. The only basis for it is meaningless ideological rhetoric.
