The fact is, Earth Day is a holy day of the religion of environmentalism, and its key proponents are some of the most rude, holier-than-thou, condescending, religious zealots you will ever meet.
This is a pretty good rant about the constant nagging in Christian churches about taking care of the Earth, and I feel exactly the same way.
I don’t want to hear environmentalism dressed up as faith in the Sunday prayers. I do plenty to help the planet already, thank you very much, and so does pretty much everybody else who is not dumping vast quantities of nasty toxins and chemicals into the nearest river.
Just give it a rest already, and quit worrying so much. The planet is fine, and it will be fine, even if CO2 has rocketed up to 400PPM from the previous 320PPM or whatever it was just a few short years ago. That’s 0.04% for you math-challenged types. It’s not a lot. It’s a trace gas in the atmosphere, and there is no credible evidence that it is causing trouble for us, or for the planet.
So Happy Earth Day. Whatever. Let’s not get too carried away with this whole “man is destroying the planet” thing, though, because it just isn’t true.Most of us who attend church do so to grow stronger in our faith, not to worship the Earth itself, as that is a bit too close to the kind of pagan worship and ritual sacrifice that existed before Christianity replaced that kind of barbarism with the radical idea that Love and Grace could be the centerpiece of a religion.
This idea changed the world. Love and Grace. The very concept that we should be nice to each other, or the Golden Rule, is essentially due to the spread of Christianity.
Oh hey look - more climate alarmism. Yay.
Spring might have just sprung, but there’s already a hint of a particularly cruel, hot summer in the air. It’s not surprising, especially not when you look at the persistent growth of weirdly warm weather in the United States since 1964.
That’s fascinating and all, but you do realize that the U.S. temperature data is hopelessly corrupted by poor siting and other flaws, such that 70% of the temperature collection stations are off by at least 2 degrees Celsius?
Putting thermometers next to buildings, parking lots, and airport runways will do that, and all in the warm direction, please note.
A meteorologist named Anthony Watts took it upon himself to certify the U.S. temperature data and found most of it is literally junk data. His blog WattsUpWithThat.com is must reading for anybody who wants to know what real climate science looks like. Guess what? He doesn’t believe in AGW, and what’s more, he has the evidence to prove it. Especially when you consider that the planet has not warmed in 16 years, despite rising CO2, which is all the way up to 0.04% of the atmosphere! Yikes! Sounds like impending disaster to me! Oh wait - no it doesn’t. It sounds like a manufactured crisis that stifles economic growth.
What kind of nut worries themselves to death about .04% of something, and yet ignores the other 99.96%? There is a line where insanity comes into the picture.
Yes, pretending the planet is heating up due to man’s evil evil CO2 output is so much more fun and trendy. Also, wrong.
We are wasting an ungodly amount of time and money on this silliness.
Besides, several people smarter than I, backed by actual science and proven history going back much more than 50 years, are betting on an increasingly cooler planet due to historic sunspot minimums fast approaching, especially given the fact that the planet is not warming today despite increasing CO2 levels worldwide.
