Science Says You Can't Stop Climate Change

Google ”How many ice ages have there been?

According to science, there have been at least five ice ages1. Ice ages are separated by what science calls interglacials. We are currently in an interglacial that started roughly 11,700 years ago2.

To give you an idea of what this looks like, Jesus walked the Earth roughly 2,000 years ago. Picture the state of the human race at that time: no lights, no boats, no motor cars—not a single luxury. Seriously. No manufacturing. No plastic. The population of the entire world at the time is estimated to be around 300 million people.

Yet, somehow, environmentalists want us to believe that man has caused the current global warming interglacial that started 9,700 years before the population boom of Jesus’s time.

Wikipedia makes this very interesting statement regarding Earth’s climate (emphasis added):

There have been at least five major ice ages in the Earth’s history (the Huronian, Cryogenian, Andean-Saharan, Karoo Ice Age, and the current Quaternary Ice Age). Outside these ages, the Earth seems to have been ice free even in high latitudes3.

Let that sink in. Ice is not normal. The polar caps? Not normal. According to the Utah Geological Survey:

yes, we live in an ice age!4

That’s quite a bit different that what environmentalists and the liberal media would have you believe.

Climate change has been going on for billions of years, again according to science. So I have to ask, what do people expect in the modern world? Do they think that climate changed stopped somewhere along the way? Is man so egotistical that he thinks climate change stopped when he arrived on the scene?

Here’s another question? What is the goal of stopping climate change? What exactly will that look like? How will you know when you’ve succeeded? Will climate change actually stop? No matter how hard I try, I can’t picture mankind actually stopping something that has been going on, naturally, for billions of years. It seems to me that the only way to actually stop climate change would be to stop the Earth from rotating on it’s axis, and stop it from circling the sun.

So, what do we do? The goal needs to be to adapt, not stop it. You’re fighting a battle you can’t win. Ever. It’s a waste of time, and an even bigger waste of money, not to mention the damage it does to the poor. They can’t afford the insanity, and they shouldn’t have to pay the burden that activists place on them.

If activists want to be ignorant of what science says, fine, but don’t subject the rest of us to your insane goals.
