In Britain, arrests were made after the London headquarters of Shell Oil was targeted by climate change protesters calling it an Extinction Rebellion (XR) with demonstrations staged across London. The messages they were yelling is that “Shell kills” which they also sprayed on to the property, while a female climate change activist glued herself to the door of the building. Of course, the sheer lack of intelligence of these people is indescribable. They do not think about their heat when it is freezing outside or lights they need to even go to school. The sheer stupidity of these people and their claims that CO2 will extinguish all life is just beyond belief. There is data on CO2 going back 8,000 years. The chart above is from NASA. If anything, it demonstrates that there has always been a cycle and we never reached new historic highs. These people are victims of propaganda and we can easily see how dangerous this can become.
The real crime is how such forecasts are made that reflect the complete nonsense of the methodology. They always assume whatever trend is in motion will remain in motion. This is how Thomas Malthus first alarmed the world in his 1798 book An Essay on the Principle of Population, where he observed that an increase in a nation’s food production improved the well-being of the populace, but the improvement was temporary because it led to population growth, which in turn restored the original per capita production level. His entire argument was that we should all be dead by now because we would not be able to produce enough food. What he failed to understand is that there are cycles to everything. Not merely did he fail to understand that we were coming out of a mini-ice age and production of food would increase, but the cycles in technology that brought about steam power and then the combustion engine. Both dramatically increased food production and now we have learned to grow food indoors with lights.
All of this analysis is bogus. If we apply the same methodology, then if the down rises 10% in one year it will do the same every year until it reaches 100,000. None of the analysis applied in Global Warming of Climate Change takes into account cyclical analysis. Sorry, nothing functions in this manner. Just because we are healthy today does not mean that will last forever.
If you are really that worries about CO2, plant more trees and shrubs. Perhaps they forget what they taught in science class. Plants and trees need CO2 to survive. If you really want to do something about CO2, start planting.
