The recent Climate Summit in Copenhagen is proof positive that people are a herd that can be stampeded this way and that. Masses of people are no different than buffalo herds on the Great Plains of North America which Indians, who were on foot, could stampede over cliffs. The fall would kill otherwise formidable beasts which the Indians could never catch or overpower. Such places were colorfully named with "Head All Smashed In" and the like. Wolves also knew how to manage the herds of great beasts.
And so it is with people.
Our leaders are like the Indians. We peons are like the buffalo herd. Our leaders are wolves in sheep clothing who gain our confidence by promising to look after our interests. Then, when our guard is down, they stampede us over a cliff. At the bottom, our carcasses can be butchered to feed our leaders and their friends. Or we are left to rot.
That assessment is not cynical. That is reality. That is how it is. That is how it has always been.
The climate is driven by the sun. Winter and summer occur because the earth is tilted slightly and the earth is closer and farther away from the sun at various times on its orbit. In winter months, the earth is farther away from the sun and it is colder than in summer months. One orbit around the sun takes a year. Night is darker and colder than day because the earth rotates on its axis. It takes the earth one day to rotate once.
When the sun is more active and it has spots that are exceptionally hot, the earth is warmer. When the sun is less active and there are no sun spots, the earth is cooler. There currently are no sun spots and the earth is getting colder.
When the earth is warmer, plants grow. Plants release carbon dioxide. When the earth has been warmer for thousands of years, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere increases. When the earth is cooler for thousands of years the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere decreases. Plants do not grow in the winter.
You can check it out for yourself. Step outside and walk around.
That is how it is. That is how it has been for billions of years. That is how things are going to be for billions of years to come.
"Scientists", like Al Gore and David Suzuki, tell "Chicken Little" stories that do not reflect this. They profit at our expense. They are like the Indians. We are like the buffalo. The earth may be here for billions of years more, but mankind might be exterminated by people who don't even understand simple cause and effect.
That is how it is.
