Does climate change really exist? Absolutely. Earth’s climate has always been changing. The question is whether this constant changing is being significantly affected by humanity (i.e., whether climate change is, in significant part, “anthropogenic”).
Two main categories of people are pushing the anthropogenic climate change narrative.
First are those doing so based on pecuniary or political interests. This includes scores of scientists riding the climate change gravy train of government and United Nation grants paying these scientists big bucks to “study” this narrative. There are also groups pushing this narrative with sub-rosa agendas such as one world governance or wealth redistribution.
Second, there are the true believers, those to whom anthropogenic climate change is more of a religious dogma than a scientific issue. For example, a Letter to the Editor posited the whimsical suggestion that a recent heavy rain (officially recorded by the National Weather Bureau at 5.33 inches) is proof of anthropogenic climate change. Never mind the fact that the Environmental Science Services Center (renamed NOAA in 1970) recorded 10.60 inches of rain in one day at the Mississippi Test Facility (now Stennis Space Center) almost 50 years ago in 1969.
Never miss a local story.
I suppose the next suggestion from the Kool-Aid drinkers will be to all join hands and sing Kumbaya.
People should disregard the shrill chicken little claims of imminent destruction from the climate change apologists in favor of the peer reviewed, unbiased scientific data regarding this issue and then draw their own conclusions.
