WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Global warm my ass

So the country and, in fact, many parts of the world are going into the deep freeze this winter yet environmental hysterics try to convince us that there is a global warming and that we cause it.

I wonder how long before we go back to the hysteria of "global cooling" of the 70s.

[...] 30 years ago the fashionable panic was about global cooling. The New York Times (Aug. 14, 1975) saw "many signs" that "Earth may be heading for another ice age." Science magazine (Dec. 10, 1976) warned about "extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation."

"Continued rapid cooling of the Earth" (Global Ecology, 1971) could herald "a full-blown 10,000 year ice age" (Science, March 1, 1975). The Christian Science Monitor reported (Aug. 27, 1974) that Nebraska's armadillos were retreating south from the cooling.

The country-side around Gdansk, the city where I grew up, was once, many, many years ago, covered with glaciers. [I know that much of northern North America, Europe and Russia were also affected by glaciation but I like to reminisce from to time about the places I know and I remember vividly learning in school how the landscape of the northern Poland was affected by glaciation.] Something happened to them long before any people appeared in those areas. Yes, it was probably caused by some kind of "global warming." It seems that there is a cycle the Earth goes through and we just have to learn to live with it. It is utter arrogance to think that we cause it or that we can stop it.

To those who still believe that our activities can change global climate, I recommend this video (it was made for PBS so it must be true):

Scientists now believe the early Dark Ages may have been triggered by a natural event that occurred around 535 A.D. Science writer David Keys is convinced that the cause was a phenomenon of cataclysmic proportions. At the center of a complex chain of events seems to be a "loud bang" -- a volcanic explosion equal to two thousand million Hiroshima-size bombs.

It shows how the climate can be affected by a volcano eruption and how the changes in climate may have changed the human history. It's not about the 1883 eruption although that one also affected global climate. It's about a theory that Krakatoa also erupted in the 1st century, which started a long chain reaction.
