I am SO over you, puny humans

September 14, 2010

This article simply puts into earth science terms what I’ve always asked about human-centered-global warming Article: “The earth doesn’t care”

What’s always bothered me about climate change is in the same sentence someone who advertises themselves to be perfectly rational will imply that humans are the root cause of all the problems wrt the earth temperatures, and at the same time the earth really isn’t centered around humans as a species. Which is it guys?

There are so many questions –

  1. based on geology and earth science, why is it a problem if the earth warms or cools given it’s been happening for millions of years, long before industrialization?
  2. If humans really aren’t the center of the earth, why are we acting as if we can be when it comes to ‘preventing global warming?’
  3. How in the heck did we pick the 1700’s as the ideal period of time to align to wrt global temperatures, instead of the ice age or the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth?
  4. What was the cause of the natural disasters in the world BEFORE industrialization? Mt Vesuvius certainly didn’t happen because of our carbon footprint

The article says:

The world’s total precipitation in a year is about one meter—“the height of a golden retriever.” About 200 meters—the height of the Hoover Dam—have fallen on earth since the Industrial Revolution. Since the Ice Age ended, enough rain has fallen to fill all the oceans four times; since the dinosaurs died, rainfall has been sufficient to fill the oceans 20,000 times. Yet the amount of water on earth probably hasn’t changed significantly over geologic time….

Damaging this old earth is, Laughlin says, “easier to imagine than it is to accomplish.” There have been mass volcanic explosions, meteor impacts, “and all manner of other abuses greater than anything people could inflict, and it’s still here. It’s a survivor.”

Climate hystericals – please get over yourselves already. The planet will be SO over you far sooner than you’d like to think – especially if (according to your theology) man will not exist on the planet and the planet will continue on without us for millions of years barring some astronomical disaster. Millions of species have gone extinct – why assume humanity won’t – based upon your own theories?

According to my theology – which happens to be the theology that many have shared over the last 2000 years or so – when the Guy who owns the place comes back He cleans it up and puts everything back the way it was intended to be – as it should have been all along. No “spirit is good, earth is bad” nonsense – He made it, said it was good, and isn’t going to give it up any more than He would the rest of what He created. That’s one thing that makes it unique as a world religion.

Putting on my “change the worldview” hat, I can’t figure out how the climate hysterics make sense from a scientific view. Apparently neither than these scientists

    6. Don’t trees NEED carbon to live? And aren’t we all about saving the trees?

    5. If our government is doing its level best to ensure that taxes are so high that people can’t afford to have kids anyway, would it matter that the kids couldn’t survive without a pair of shorts and some SPF200?

    Just thinking.
