Global warming – hmmmmmm

From Professor Ian Rutherford Plimer – an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, professor of mining  geology at the University of Adelaide.  He has published 130  scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – _all of you._

Of course, you know about this carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – its that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacation in Bali getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs…..   well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.

I should also mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Of course, I shouldn’t forget to mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, _which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change. _

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year. Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.

And, how interesting is it that now they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just _”Climate Change”. Why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming alarmists got caught with their pants down. And, just keep in mind that you might yet be stuck with an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

    Very well informed. So tell them to put that in their pipes and smoke it!

    Well said Ian Plimer, its a shame that the “climate change” fanatics didn’t read your factual writings instead of the tripe dished out by the non-qualified know-it-alls.
    The BOM more than likely can’t get tomorrow’s forecast correct, let alone a few years time. Although sometimes they fluke it…

    I have long been an admirer of Ian Plimer, going back over 40 years ago as a member of Australian Skeptics, of which Ian was a Founding Member (I think?).
    He certainly is a main proponent of the archeological records, and more than a little knowledge of Earth and Climate Science, added to common sense (which most Climate Change False Alarmists lack!), which gives the LIE to the most massive, most costly, most environmentally destructive FRAUD in the whole history of Mankind i.e. Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change (manipulated) Theory.
