What Did Jesus Drive?

So the UN report on "global warming" came out. And guess who they blamed? No, really. Take a guess.

Give up yet?

The UN says man caused it. To them, I say they're full of shit. All you have to do is stop and think for 5 seconds.

15,000 years ago, what happened on this planet? The ice age ended. The planet warmed up, the ice retreated, sea levels rose, and the environment we know today more or less formed. Global temperatures have been steadily rising ever since and as with all things they will eventually reach a point where all of the ice melts. There is nothing we can do to stop this. The UN report even admits as much: ... hotter temperatures and rises in sea level will "continue for centuries" no matter how much humans control their pollution. ( http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,249659,00.html )

If the UN concedes we can't stop it, logic dictates we never had the power to cause it to begin with. We just happen to be here to witness it take place, at the beginning. The Earth has done this time and time again. The climate cycles up and down through periods of warmth and cold. Ice ages take place. There were tropical rain forests in northern Alaska at one time. There may well be again. How do we know this was the case? Where do they think the oil there came from? Oil is the end result of millions of years of plant decay. There had to be enough plants on the tundra at some point to create the vast reserves up there now. Do you think jungles grow in ice and snow?

We do not possess the technology or the energy necessary to control our climate at this time. All we can really do is sit back and enjoy the ride. That's not to say we shouldn't clean up our acts though. There's no reason we should have to breathe up foul smog caused by driving our SUVs and the engines of commerce. We shouldn't be forced to drink water that's been contaminated by toxic waste and disgusting chemical cocktails. If the byproduct of cleaning this stuff up is a drop in greenhouse emissions, I'm all for it. But going out of your way to cripple your economy for the sake of a 20% drop in CO2 when it won't make a damn bit of difference anyway is just insane.

They say global warming will cause an increase in hurricanes, tornadoes, and other storm related activity. Stop and think about this for a bit. Melt ice into a glass of warm water. What happens? The water cools down. Melt the ploar ice caps into the sea. What happens? The sea cools down. What do hurricanes feed on? Warm water. The sea won't be warm enough to sustain them. And what about Mars? How do they explain the warming activity taking place there? What are the Martians driving that is causing their planet to heat up? Oh yeah, that's right. Mars is a dead world. There's only one energy source in the solar system powerful enough to cause global warming on two planets: The sun.

We can't even predict the weather 7 days from now. What makes these people think we can predict the climate conditions "centuries" from now? We don't even know enough about our own sun to predict what it's long term activity cycles are like. But we have proven scientifically that the sun is in a period of increased energy output, and that energy has to go somewhere. And I suppose our foulness also spread itself to Venus and destroyed it as well.

There was a news report not long ago where the ditzy blonde on the air said something to the affect of "The Earth is as hot today as it was 2,000 years ago." So in closing I'm leaving you with this question: What did Jesus drive?

Well. I guess that's that then.

1. If SUVs were good enough for Jesus, they're good enough for us!

:P

2. Want real global warming? Make your next summer vacation spot Mercury. Take sunblock though.

3. Does anybody take anything the UN says seriously anymore? I know I don't. So much, well, hot air. Thanks for ruining my faith in you, guys.

4. Obligatory dig at France just 'cause.

5. Apparently this comment box thinks I'm not human. Glad it finally caught on.

       
Has it ocurred to anyone that we humans have some real issues and past track records of starting all sorts of things we can't subsequently stop? Or that, if this global warming is caused by man, perhaps it's all the hot air from politicians over the centuries (millenia?) that caused it? :P

Being that I'm not christian, I'll be nice enough to just say that the reporter in question obviously was a stage beyond clueless.

       
Oh, it occurred to me alright. But for global warming to have been caused by man would require that we also be able to stop or reverse the damage. The fact is, global warming is caused by the sun and our orbital relationship with it.

Implying that we start things we *CAN'T* stop is a bit shortsighted. It's usually more like we don't *WANT* to stop it. Unless you're talking about something devastatingly uncorrectable like nuclear holocaust. Which thankfully we have not experimented with just yet.

       
Actually, I did in fact have nuclear issues in mind. No, we haven't started the whole final holocaust, but we have created nuclear power plant meltdowns that we couldn't stop, or even reverse, all we could do was evacuate the area. We've also created diseases and bacterial weapons that we couldn't do anything with beyond containment and isolation. We can't do much for Hiroshima to make it habitable either. Prior to the nuclear age, we've created all sorts of disasters that we couldn't do much about once started with the technology of the time. While I happen to agree that we didn't create the global warming and may well not really be able to do anything about it, mankind has several significant bad habits including pushing forward to test new 'technology' without considering how to fix the problems it will create until after the damage is done.

       
Most of those things you list we *CAN* fix, if we *WANT* to fix them. But that's the other side of the coin. We often don't want to fix it, or don't want to spend the money necessary to fix it.

I stand by my assertion that nuclear war is about the only man made event we would be incapable of undoing because of the catastrophic amount of damage done. Not to mention we'd all likely be dead anyway.
