Simple wisdom for living in a complex world

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” — Upton Sinclair.
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” — Søren Kierkegaard

The current hysteria over human-caused climate change is fueled by compromised scientists who don’t want to lose their lucrative government grants to study it and the fools who don’t stand to gain or lose monetarily but gain some psychic benefit from the groupthink and herd mentality in believing all the hype. So no matter how much information is available to show that it’s a gigantic hoax, the false narrative of human-caused climate change rages on.

The climate change fanatics believe is it we skeptics who are the fools. The evidence, however, [here, herehere, and here] is with us.

Climate change also continues on not in a rage but slowly (in human time) as it always has for the past 4.5 billion years of earth’s existence.

Humans do have one small effect called the urban heat island that causes large urban areas to be 2-3 degrees warmer than the surrounding country side.  That is weather, not climate.  It’s caused by lots of dark and hard surfaces in the city which hold the sun’s heat longer. The UHI differential is usually not present on windy days nor during times of heavy snow cover that renders the surface of cities little different than the surrounding area. Even a suburban area with lots of tree cover can be slightly cooler than the city. Just weather, nothing to do with climate.
