In testimony to the US Senate in Feb 2014 Dr Patrick Moore, ecologist and co-founder of Greenpeace, made two significant points on climate change:

Firstly: “When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished.”

Secondly: “Humans are a tropical species. We evolved at the equator in a climate where freezing weather did not exist. The only reasons we can survive these cold climates are fire, clothing, and housing.”

Ice ages extinguish most life. Even a slight reduction in surface temperature would turn the northern grain fields of Canada, China, Russia and Europe into frigid deserts. And millions of humans and animals would starve.

We are fortunate to live in a natural warm interlude after the recurring ice ages of the Pleistocene Era. The modern warming has evaporated moisture and discharged carbon dioxide from the oceans. This increase in atmospheric plant nutrients has increased crop yields and caused widespread greening of the planet that can be detected by satellite. These benefits for the biosphere are ignored by climate alarmists.

Cold eras are remembered for bitter storms, starvation, migrations and wars. The next natural climate change is likely to see the ice returning.

Everyone except penguins and polar bears should “Welcome the Warmth” – Cold is the Killer.

I agree, jc. The Universities spew them out – must be the tutors there.

But so many of the young generation are. At least 4 out of 9 of my extended family, aged between 25 and 40, well educated (most University), all working vote Green – and can’t see anything wrong with their platform. One, in business, is starting to change his mind, but I very much doubt if he would ever vote conservative. Again I ask – what is so appealing to the young generation? Is it because they learnt it at Uni? That is certainly where Labor get their “up and coming”.

So just sit back, relax and enjoy the few remaining years of the Interglacial Period of the current Ice Age.

Australia 2009 370 people died from heat related to temperature, yet I have never heard of that many death here from the cold.

I heard a global warming ‘expert’ state that in 50 years, parts of the earth will be uninhabitable due to climate change. I know the Russians would love a bit of warmth in the tundra permafrost and maybe open up huge areas of farmland. this so called expert did not even mention areas already uninhabitable due to coldness. Not scary enough I guess.

I am in general agreement with most of what Viv writes……But if we want to discuss things on earth that threaten our so called civilized society then we had better look at ourselves in the mirror , see that reflection, there lies our problem, its us, its human nature, its sinful human nature , its violence toward each other, its mankind behaving badly, its arrogance, its depravity, its our doing….we will be brought to account for it….the earth abideth forever, stop worrying about it and get our own house in order first…love thy neighbor as thyself, stop asking what i… Read more »

Obvious really. No one is yet to explain how a couple of degrees warmer would be that bad. The doomsayers argue that due to ice melting the seas would rise and flood all the low lying areas of the earth. Maybe, but it wouldn’t happen over night and we would adapt as we always have. Total BS if you ask me. Even an IPCC official said as much before the junket in Cancun a few years ago. Feeding a few virgins to a volcano will have about as much effect as a tax. The doomsayers will never admit they were… Read more »

Please Larry don’t tell em that ! They’ll come up with some new theory that we will all die of comfort or complacency. No way will the doomsayers let go.

I’d just challenge that Polar Bears and Penguins would survive if it were that much colder. If nothing else their food sources would be at risk. Viv’s essential point is true though, nearly all life is better suited to warmer than cooler. Even reptiles are happier.

Are we talking warm it up or raze it to cinders here OJ?

The answer may be to relocate all greens, global warmists and climate change apologists to Tasmania. The major benefit would be all the concentrated hot air would keep Tassie at current temperature and we could allow them to naturally breed to extinction as a warm Tasmania is not conducive to radical breeding.

Wouldn’t you think, Viv, that what you are saying is the bleeding obvious. But then the alarmists agenda is financial anyway. As evidence builds against them, they have gone unusually quiet just lately (at least that’s what I notice) along with unusual quietness on gay marriage. Thank you for making it all easy to understand.
