Actually, people through crop science and agricultural education, the US has developed some of the best ways to manage food production in the world.
We don't deplete our soils and then move on to deplete others. We've learned that rotating crops with give and take opposite nutrients and planting
cover crops through non-seasonal months allow the most efficient use of land per acre than anywhere else in the world.
A quick look back in history will show that we don't even come close to living in the most dynamic period in Earth's climate..not even in the last
1000 years of Earth's Climate.
We also will find that most reports of rising temps actually come from a prediction of a computer model and that real-time data from satelittes and
weather balloons do not match this.
There have been numerous times in the past when Earth's Climate has been warmer and colder than present by a good degree. No one knows yet just what
mechanisms guide it but its suspected that several combined do it.
One important fact that the global warming crowd will have you believe is that the rise in CO2 caused the warming when in reality, it actually
gradually rose in response to a 300 year warming trend after the end of the last "Littel Ice Age". Warmer Earth means less Ice and more production
of CO2 by inhabitants. We villify CO2 without much knowledge of its actual use in our atmosphere. See my
That tells us this is no more true than the steam above a boiling pot causing the cavitation.
Now, from this, I guess you have all branded me an enemy of the environment but that is as far from true as one could get. I have been an active
community member in cleaning up illegal dumps, straight piped sewers, livestock run-off and chemicial dumping. See, there are true environmental
concerns and true enemys of the environment. However discerning between those that are developed merely as a political weapon and those which are
valid is a bit of a challenge given the way our media whores itself and the way politicians seem to get to add their own little message to climate
True, we do have a an air pollution problem around major metro areas. (Dust Domes) We even see a raised albedo affect from so much pavement but its
localized. I can see perfectly well why California is enacting pollution control regulations because they have a local problem with air quality.
However, to use a computer model as a scare tactic when most of the scientific community (myself included) is well aware of the actual data is bound
to catch up them sooner or later just as the scare tactic used years ago that brought about the theory of eugenics.
A popular scientific theory that ushered in an age of suffering by the human race rarely seen before or since. A theory that then, held the merit of
many world leaders and the scientific community. A theory then more widely accepted than global warming is today. A theory which was later known to
have been founded on flawed science and political agendas. Sound familiar?
