1908 : “Why the Popular Belief in Climatic Changes is Untrustworthy”

“Why the Popular Belief in Climatic Changes is Untrustworthy.

Why is the popular belief in a change of climate so widespread and so firmly fixed, when instrumental records all go to show that this belief is erroneous? It is not easy to answer this question satisfactorily, but several possible explanations may be given. The trouble arises chiefly from the fact that we place absolute trust in our memories, and attempt to judge such subtle things as climatic changes on the basis of these memories, which are at best short, defective, and in the highest degree untrustworthy.”

    Everyone thinks that the weather of their childhood is the ideal litmus for the state of the “climate”.

    While green activists at the COP26 climate conference will be urging others to cut down on air travel and eat less meat, billionaires flew in on their own planes on routes already served by commercial airlines.

    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ $65million Gulfstream landed in Scotland last night, leading a 400-strong parade of private jets that included royal families and senior delegations from nations around the world.

    Conservative estimates suggest the fleet jets arriving for COP26 will blast out 13,000tonnes of carbon dioxide in total – equivalent to the amount consumed by more than 1,600 Britons in a year.

    Bank of America, which in PR documents boasts of its ‘commitment to sustainability’, was the registered owner of two private jets arriving in Scotland.

      And they live in mansions (Man Bear Pig) which use enuf energy to run 35 homes.
      AND certain leaders ( Obama) live right on the coast of an ocean that is supposed to overrun his home in 25-50 yrs.
      Look at what they do…not what they say.
      The word ‘hypocrite’ is to weak for these ‘people’.

    I’m in the Uk and the TV News media tonight are full of images of the posturing hypocritical buffoons as they ‘strut their stuff’ peddling the propoganda about impending doom if we don’t ‘act’now’ to stop the Earths atmosphere from warming up!! Give me a break – I’ve never seen an oposing argument or a well rounded discussion on any of the media outlets on this subject – ever!!! This is just nonsense and a ruse to alter our ways of life forever. I’ll bet the current Volcano erruption in the Canaries doesn’t get a mention!! I reckon there’s as much, or more, CO2 coming out of that hole in the ground than is produced by the UK in a year!! Fix that Boris – please stick your head down it and give us all reason to be cheerful.
    Something must be done to get a balanced debate going on the subject of ‘Man Made Climate Change’ before our civilisation as we know it dissapears forever.
    Boris must be told ‘THE EARTH IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE – WE ARE!!!!!).

    Yes, please stop burning fossil fuels. It must be causing global cooling (at least in Texas last winter), even with thousands of wind turbines spinning away in west Texas.
    The hypocrisy of flying jets into “climate change” conferences with agendas dead set on imposing draconian measures on the rest of us, based on no science to show that we are going to alter the earth’s climate, although temperature records of the past show we have had global cooling at times and global warming at others, each with CO2 levels in the thousands of CO2 ppm.
