Rethinking Climate, Climate Change, and Their Relationship with Water

This was my comment:

The Dust Bowl and Record heat for much of a decade really did happen!

The 1930's set more all time state high temperature records than any other decade.......that still stands!

Causes of Dust Bowl and effects:

We've been told for over 3 decades that global warming will cause a return of the Dust Bowl conditions:

U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked


"Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands"

Instead, with rising beneficial CO2 and slight, beneficially warmer temperatures, just the opposite has happened.....the planet is massively greening up, crop production soaring higher not in spite of Climate Change but  BECAUSE of climate change:

Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds

An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.

Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to chemically combine carbon dioxide drawn in from the air with water and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are the main source of food, fiber and fuel for life on Earth. Studies have shown that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase photosynthesis, spurring plant growth.

However, carbon dioxide fertilization isn’t the only cause of increased plant growth—nitrogen, land cover change and climate change by way of global temperature, precipitation and sunlight changes all contribute to the greening effect.

Ten climate fear stories that failed

This one has always been my favorite, made by the entity most responsible for the fake climate crisis scare, the United Nations.

U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked


   UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. 

   Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP. 

   He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control. 

   As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday. 

   Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study. 

   ″Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what’s worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesn’t have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?″ he said. 

   UNEP estimates it would cost the United States at least $100 billion to protect its east coast alone. 

   Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. 

   Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse. 

   The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown."

metmike: To me, this just reinforces an indisputable method for using schemes to affect human behavior. They do this all the time with tv commercials or political ads that most of us know are total bs........but somehow, it's worth spending many billions of $ on.

You can completely overcome the lack of truth or lack of evidence/empirical data or lack of validity of your position or product/service. Simply manufacture a "subjective reality" based "alternate facts" and repeat it over and over and over. Despite this representing a false narrative and science fiction much of the time, the key element to success is REPETITION. 

If you repeat a lie often enough and people hear it for 3 decades, for instance, they accept it as the truth.

Once that you accept something as the truth. It can take 20 times more information to change your mind and often that isn't enough, even if your mind believes a complete lie. 

Cognitive bias!

List of cognitive biases

Go to the link above and look at all the cognitive biases-es.

You may be suprised at how many there are but after reading them, you will strongly agree that they are totally legit and happen constantly in peoples lives. 

The gate keepers of information in our world today are elite authorities at using them to control us!
