Climate warming activists demand that we listen to science, but their “science” has been consistently wrong for 60 years. Who would continue to trust these people?
Reasonable people who begin examining the science of climate change discover that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, that the ozone layer historically wanes and regenerates and that there have been numerous destructive weather experiences before cars or industry existed.
Dinosaurs roamed the earth during the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. These periods fall under the Mesozoic Era, which lasted from 250 to 65 million years ago. No cars, no humans, no industry. CO2 levels were extremely elevated to perhaps 2,000 to 4,000 ppm.
Every living thing flourished when the CO2 levels were high (What Earth was like last time CO2 levels were as high as today — mashable.com).
Ice Ages came and went from 2.4 million years ago and lasted until 11,500 years ago. No cars and no industry existed, yet the climate repeatedly changed between glacier covered areas to very warm periods when the glaciers melted. CO2 levels during this time is thought to be 2,000–8,000 parts per million. (When Were the Ices Ages and Why Are They Called That?

These changes are natural cycles needed to replenish the earth.
Science Daily explains that an extinction event which occurred 360 million years ago was caused by a brief breakdown of the ozone layer. Researchers at the University of Southampton found that there have been many extinction events and some extinction events have been caused by continental scale volcanic eruptions, the movement of tectonic plates and the waning and regenerating of the ozone layer (Erosion of ozone layer responsible for mass extinction event – ScienceDaily and Mountains Have The Scars To Prove The Conflict Between Tectonic Plates And Climate – ScienceDaily).
There are dozens of “lost” ancient cities under the ocean. These cities, like Pompeii, were often destroyed by tectonic plates moving, causing volcanic eruptions, destroying the cities and all of the lives within. Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. No industry and no cars (Pompeii, Italy: Mount Vesuvius Eruption & Facts - History).
Therefore, the claim from climate warming “scientists” that major weather events are recent anomalies caused by man polluting the environment are false. Millions of U.S. tax dollars will not fix the problem. The idea that mankind can control the Earth and her natural cycles is the height of arrogance and denies science!
Nevertheless, we have a moral obligation to keep our land, air and water clean.
