The climate change deniers, the B.C. Liberal's, and federal Conservative communication gurus all repeat misinformation in the hopes people will grow to believe it.
Logic tells me our environment and atmosphere are in trouble. Examine the last 130 years of P.G.'s weather.
The 1950s saw record cold likely due to dust in the atmosphere from World War II, the Korean War, and the massive nuclear testing then. 1991-92 saw our last forty below temperatures likely due to the Iraqi war with its deliberate oil well fires and the huge eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines. I shoveled my roof twice in January 1981 after the closer eruption of Mount St. Helens.
Krakatoa's eruption in 1883 briefly caused a two-year worldwide cooling. These are cold blips on the general upwards rise in temperature since the mini cold spell of the 16th century. Given the last full blast ice age was over 10,000 years ago, there's probably a 1 in 10,000 year chance the recent warming trend startup point and the Industrial Revolution are coincidentally timed. Warming peaked in the thirties, went higher in the 1980s, and has since melted the polar ice sheets. More solar energy is absorbed as shrinking areas of ice cover decrease the Earth's albedo, (reflecting power). Clearer still is ozone depletion from manmade aerosol sprays.
Human or natural dust, mankind's use of fossil fuels, clear cuts, deforestation in areas like the Amazon and pine beetle-devastated BC, (where missing trees no longer convert CO2 into oxygen), and natural events contribute to temperature variations. 99,000,000,000 hamburgers sold, (the last MacDonald's sign I saw), shows the human effects of bovine methane increases.
Still the clearest sign of manmade global warming is government restrictions on reporting by government scientists and the use of climate change in place of the term catastrophic global warming. Oil resources are big business. Misinformation of this kind has worked for the dairy industry for years. Prior to the domestication of the cow, mother's milk in it's most natural form had to be based on water. But cholesterol - laced milk has been successfully marketed as "nature's most nearly perfect food".
