Before I get into my main point, let me start by telling you my beliefs on the hot-button issue of "Man-made climate change". I'm starting to think
the "Man-made" part is mostly if not completely false. The "climate change" part, however, is entirely true. Yet, the world isn't getting warmer as
quickly as scientists would have you believe. In fact, the current level of warming is completely within the bounds of nature and has occurred
countless times before in Earth's history.
But I didn't start this thread today to argue why man-made climate change is false
. There are PLENTY of threads on ATS already that can help
convince you of this likely reality, so I'd just be beating a dead horse. No, for today, I'll be arguing the reasons why man-made climate change
has nothing to do with global conspiracies
and everything to do with the reason people tend to believe in man-made climate change in the first
Let's continue ...
First, I'll tell you why the global warming phenomenon isn't being propagated by a secret super-massive cabal to serve their agendas
, and it's
certainly the easiest point to argue of the two I mentioned in the previous paragraph.
If you DON'T believe in a NWO, or at least aren't sure if one exists, go ahead and skip to the beginning of my next point immediately beneath the
picture of Obama speaking in Paris this year. If you DO believe and are unshakable in this inherent belief of yours, read on ...
Let me just ask this one question to those who believe global-warming or man-made global warming to be a conspiracy: Do you have any concrete
? Note how I didn't ask for proof
. I only want real and convincing evidence
"Well, because the elites/bankers/Illuminati wish to create a global message to unite the peoples of the world into a New World Order and eventually
cull the masses to better control the ..."
Let me stop you right there. Please provide evidence for that point, because that by itself won't convince anyone
no matter how silver-tongued
"Well ... the U.N. ... Blah blah blah ... and are owned by a small group of elites ... blah blah blah ... called the Illuminati ... blah blah blah ...
funded by Rockefeller and Rothschild ... blah blah blah ... and ..."
Woah! Easy there buddy. Let me just dispel every single point you just brought up in that one incoherent statement so you can take a breather or
Don't you think that if this Illuminati or New World Order could be so easily uncovered by a random skeptical (or, rather,paranoid
that they would have existed for this long? Don't you think all the complaints from your fellow believers of this theory would've raised complaints
against their respective governments and a formal investigation would be underway? If the facts are so plain to see, wouldn't said investigation find
incredible amounts of even more damning activities within the government? How can such an immense organization be kept so secret
masses for so long?
My answer is: It can't. There is no such thing as a NWO. The "connections" you're seeing are the exact same thing as when people see strange faces
or patterns in smoke or paintings. They only exist in your head.
Now I'm not saying a global cabal couldn't
exist, but I have no doubt if there is one existing today that it's not nearly as powerful
widespread as many paranoid-types would have you believe.
I doubt I convinced you today that the Illuminati or NWO doesn't exist. What I was trying to do is get you ready to pretend
organization like this doesn't exist. To pretend
a global organization isn't responsible for every major event in world history.
Are you pretending yet? Good. Now we can get back to the main point of my thread.
I'll make a bold-statement and say that the concern from the global community concerning climate change is 15% based on actual evidence and 85% based
on psychological fallacies in our human logic. These falsehoods contribute to exaggerations by even renowned researchers. These exaggerations
include the "fact" that global warming is occurring at levels much faster than can be produced by nature alone.
Look at the following timeline-graph of warming over the past fifteen-hundred years:
Pretty damning evidence of unnaturally high levels of warming within our century, right?
. The vague possibility of direct manipulation to the graphs aside, the years before we had accurate records of changes to the entire
Earth's climate are still uncertain. How can we rely on information that's only around 75 years old when that's only a mere point on a point on a
speck in all of Earth's historical climatic changes? Even IF the climate is warming unusually fast, do you think we could trust such scant evidence
as supposed "proof"?
If you're wondering how anyone could believe something like this, I'll tell you right now there's no evil world organizations involved. The only
"evil" is the one within all of us, and that is basic human ignorance and delusion.
When I see this graph, I see many flaws. But when most people see this graph, they see solid scientific evidence. This is because humans tend to
follow figures of authority, whether that authority is based in power, knowledge, or both. In this case the "authority" consists of the various
scientific organizations promoting the global warming theory.
So, what convinced the scientists
behind global warming theory to believe in it in the first place? Skewed logic
. Even the most
intelligent among us aren't invulnerable to making grave errors, especially in the case of scientific researchers. In the case of man-made climate
change, some scientists looked at the correlation between greenhouse gas emissions and the rise in temperatures around the world. They concluded that
there had to be a connection where there really was none. They forgot an important logical rule: Correlation does not necessarily mean
Yet, due to the fact that fears within governments at the time climate change started to gain traction revolved around the over-reliance on
non-renewable resources, politicians gobbled up the idea willingly. Soon, during the 70's and 80's, the U.N. became interested in the topic and began
funding campaigns to spread awareness about the issue. It caught on, and the rest of the story is polar bears and ice caps ...
Now you see a much more logical reason to why people tend to believe in artificial climate change than a grand "hoax" being perpetuated forcefully on
This isn't to say we shouldn't limit our usage of fossil fuels. Eventually, we're going to run out of these nonrenewable resources and we'll need to
find alternatives to this system in the coming decades. But the supposed 'immediate life-or-death threat' from mm-climate change is complete
Finally, whether you agree this is due to human psychology or some evil global conspiracy to control the masses is up to you. I just hope that you at
to accept my beliefs as a possibility, rather than quickly moving on to a thread which already supports yours.
