Coal And Global Warming

Our president calls global warming “the greatest threat to homeland security.” It’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, Russia, or China.

Washington has destroyed the US coal industry, and entire coal mining towns, to fight the controversial and unproven problem of global warming. Interestingly, NASA reported that the ice shelf in Antarctica is growing at a very high rate.

From the NASA website:  Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s.

However, the ice on northern seas seems to be diminishing, according to NASA. There is so much unknown about this topic. Certainly, the slogan “the debate is over, and 97% of all scientists” is false. We ask, should the world spend trillions of dollars on a scientific puzzle with so many unknowns?

There is much more spending than is officially reported. The government has a secretive “geo-engineering” program which includes spraying the high stratosphere from large airplanes with aluminum oxide and other compounds. Aside from the fact, that these are poisonous for living things, the apparent goal of reflecting solar heat back into the sky may have unintended consequences.

The spraying is done almost on a daily basis. Just look at the sky and look at the tic-tac-toe pattern. The cloudy trails you see in the sky, the ones that linger for hours, are “chem trails,” not condensation trails which dissipate rapidly. It is possible that these gray layers actually lock in the heat bouncing back from the earth and make it warmer. Unintended consequences is what government has so often for its programs.

In other words, the effort to reduce warming may actually increase it. The White House science czar, Dr. John P. Holdren, seems to be in charge of the geo-engineering program. You can see him on YouTube saying that we may find that the long consequences of the geo-engineering program may be worse than what they are trying to remedy.
