Riddle Me This

ready to hear the boldest lie you probably will ever hear? No really, this one is a doosy. The first line of a book called You Can Prevent Global Warming goes as follows: "For the first time since the dawn of human civilization, the earth's temperature is rising."

I am appalled and disgusted by such a lie. According to the movie The Great Global Warming Swindle (and real scientists) the earths temperature change is cyclical, meaning it has cycles of cooling and warming. For example, in the medieval days, they had a warming period which warmed places like Greenland (hence the name) and the water at the North Pole which was 20 feet higher then than it is today. Shortly thereafter, the earth went into a mini ice age. Also did you know that the earth's temperature rose significantly from the late 1800s until 1940? If people did indeed put so much greenhouse gases in the air to cause man-made global warming, then the industrial period that followed the war in the mid-1940s would had caused an even more significant warming. However, it cooled and dropped through 1970. In fact, people went through a global cooling scare. But then slowly the earth warmed and peaked in 1998. Since then, it has ever so slightly started to cool. Now scientist (well, journalists actually) predict it will cool or flatline until 2020.

Now riddle me this: Is it a cycle? Or have we really reversed Global Warming by "going green?"

If you buy into the author's lie wholeheartedly, humans weren't civilized until the 1970s when the temperature rose...again.

Oh but then it gets better. You may want to sit down for this. Did you read carefully what I just wrote a few sentences ago? Yes, according to the BBC news (May 1, 2008) the earth is predicted to flatline through 2020. The article states:

The key to the new prediction is the natural cycle of ocean temperatures called the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), which is closely related to the warm currents that bring heat from the tropics to the shores of Europe. The cause of the oscillation is not well understood, but the cycle appears to come round about every 60 to 70 years. It may partly explain why temperatures rose in the early years of the last century before beginning to cool in the 1940s.


"We've always known that the climate varies naturally from year to year and decade to decade," said Richard Wood from the UK's Hadley Centre, who reviewed the new research for Nature.

"We expect man-made global warming to be superimposed on those natural variations; and this kind of research is important to make sure we don't get distracted from the longer term changes that will happen in the climate (as a result of greenhouse gas emissions)."

Now they are saying that Global Cooling is a cycle but Global Warming has mans fingerprints all over it. Does anyone know the answer? Let's talk about some possible reasons why nature can make the earth warm. First of all, have you ever notice that big orangish/yellowish thing in the sky that produces heat? The sun's surface temperature is 5,778 Kelvin which is 9940.73 degrees Fahrenheit. we've established that it's hot but now let's talk about how big it is. The sun can fit 1.3 million earths inside of it.

Next, when water evaporates it lets off CO2. The oceans cover nearly three-fourths of the earth's surface. You do the math. You are smart, surely you can figure this one out.

Decaying matter lets off CO2. So your "going green" composts are actually filling the air with CO2.

Last but not least, humans let off CO2 every time we breathe out. Oh yeah, so do animals. so if you REALLY want to "go green" then you ought to eat more meat and consume ALL of it so there is none left to rot. But wait a minute, your excrement from eating said animals would put off CO2. your breathing right now is letting off CO2. Quick hold your breath! Shame yourself for living! Shame the cats and dogs! oh Al Gore, self-proclaimed prophet of the modern days, what should we do? Give us an answer! Let's give you more money to save us! we shall by our way out of guilt! Al Gore, what is your vision?

Solution: phase out the human race.

Just kidding. This after all is a riddle of a blog.
