The Case for Global Warming as a Religion

A client at Asshole Consulting paid me to get off my lazy rear and put together my argument for why I don't believe in global warming.  Among the many arguments is that global warming is nothing more than a religion and certainly not some noble aim to "save the planet."  Regardless, more data, arguments, analysis and observations as to why "the Ole Captain" doesn't believe in this neo-religion can be found below:

Let's say, just for the sake of argument, ''global warming'' is real. It's BS of course, and scientific fraud but pretend it is. Who is being pushed to reduce ''carbon'' (CO2 which is 0.04% of air, no, seriously)? That's right, ''the West''; North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. Who only pays lip service to it but has genuine air pollution? That's right, China - home of 1.3 billion people. Who else doesn't give a shit? Well, actually they do, everywhere, India, also home of 1.3 billion people - a billion of which don't use toilets. You think they are going to ''reduce their carbon emissions''? Uh huh, sure.

All you need to know:

Well worth a couple hours of your time. It's NOVA,so they had to throw in the GW BS, but tell me how those sainted climatologist can simulate all of this even a month into the future.

During the Ordovician period, the concentration of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere was about eight times higher than today. It has been hard to explain why the climate cooled and why the Ordovician glaciations took place. A new study, published in Nature Communications, shows that the weathering of rock caused by early non-vascular plants had the potential to cause such a global cooling effect.

I think the earth itself will fare just fine, no matter what.

It's an old experienced celestial body with plenty of resilience.

However, the human race itself? WE might have something to worry about.

But not the earth itself. I think it'll restore itself quite well once humans have finally poisoned themselves into extinction.

This is the perfect example of STEM being just as big a scam as the humanities.

Believe me when I say the whole research industry is full of such scams.
