Fair comment mate - I’ve got enough scientist in me to be able to understand an explanation IF it were ever offerred in terms of electrons and energy etc or anything else really below quantum level. but mostly all we get from the zealots is pretty much what @tommor is saying.
None of them seem to mind weighing in with the 97% of scientists fiction which the Guardian sponsored “research” lied into “Fact” - the explanation of the reality in somewhere on this thread I’m pretty sure.
However, the fact is that when this stuff first started being talked about I too was concerned. So I thought “I better find out about this stuff - so I can understand whether it is real or just yet another Y2K scare !”
I researched everything I could and discussed it on some forum boards of the “Living a more natural life” type (The early “River Cottage” was one).
Oddly though, there were a few of us trying to discuss it and the books we were reading etc properly, but on the other side all we had was the two approaches we have seen here - the simple chanting ;
“Ommm Mane Padmi Ommm - the high priest has spoken - Blessed be the word”"
And there was one particularly obnoxious fella as I remember who kept throwing up those links to “Beat the skeptic” websites where the “zealots” took every argument and found ways of denying it had any credibility, using the same tricks we are so familiar with nowadays, “Guilt by association” group identity, belittlement, complaints to moderators and constant references to George Monbiot (Guardianista warmist zealot )
What was lacking even back then was Any attempt at all to “show the science” - except for Michael Mann’s faked up “Hockey stick chart” made extra famous in AL Gores dreadful film fiction. It was so bad that even th iPCC dropped it from their literature !
Then came “Climategate” which revealed thousands of emails between various zealots - one complained to Michael Mann about an early version of his "Hockey stick chart " that it was a shame about the “medieval warm period” and the “Little Ice Age”. In the final version they were GONE !
There were all sorts of shenanigans (and still are) - For example the start date (around 1880 ?) was supposed to be chosen as it was the “Start of the Industrial Revolution” (It was also the last throws of the “Little Ice Age” so temperature was a little colder than what might say would be “Average”
Even the NASA chart from 1880 to 2020 shows only 0.8 deg C difference over the whole chart of 140 years - and they Admit that that has been “Adjusted” - So what can we say of a difference of 0.8 degC over 140 years except “That is amazingly STABLE !”
So I’d been doing this stuff a few years when all of a sudden the “Science is settled” fiction started. One of ths lads on RC was a Chartered Scientist and when we were arguing that the science is NOT settled he popped up and said his Institution had written to all its members saying that they were to stop the discussions and just act “AS IF the science was settled…”
The Brutality of the suppression of any dissenting voice has been incredible - David Bellamy just disappeared off teh TV overnight - although I saw something he wrote or a vid a couple f years back and he is one of a Myriad of TRUE Scientists who are denied any mainstream platform access, to discuss the matter sensibly.
I think it took me a litte under 3 years to decide finally that the whole thing is just a crock of Shyte - Propaganda without any real basis in provable fact.
Oh it IS true that there is a correlation between CO2 and temperature By the way - It’s just that the CO2 LAGS the Temperature by a couple of hundred years ! If I remember aright This was from an Ice core record which was a bit damged but still readable in the main and I think it was our old Mate Michael Mann again who repositioned the core so it read a few hundred years Earlier than it actually was - Voila discrepancy fixed !
So why are our school teachers and others frightening our kids to death with this fictional "Non-News " ?
It is SO reminiscent of “Y2K” “BSE” “Satanic Child abuse in Shetlands” “Spanish Inquisition” “Salem Witch Trials” and other Extraordinary Popular Delusions. Whether in fact it eventually gets put down to “MAss Hysteria” or something else - I am certain that history will definitely write it into that infamous book !
Most people just “Let them get on with it” as "It can’t do any harm curing it - an it ? "
But the fact is that Energy Bills have gone up in the uk because of “Green Tarriffs” and the poor ones paying for the “Refunds” to those with the early solar panels, that that particular Redistribution of wealth means that 2700 people die every winter in uk because they can’t afford to keep themselves warm.
