We’re looking through a microscope believing we’re seeing the whole picture. Sounds crazy doesn’t it. But that’s exactly what many are doing when it comes to Global warming. Modern science began approximately 350 years ago. Using the data collected over this 350 year span has caused many incorrect assumptions. To understand what is happening globally we need thousands of years of information. Only then can we determine what is natural or normal; as compared to something directly caused by man and his use of fossil fuels.
Whenever politicians get involved with science, the information gets skewed to further political agendas. That’s exactly what’s happening now with Global warming. Since modern science is fairly new, where can we go to get the data needed to determine what is within the realm of normal for planet earth? Aided with the right information we can determine what actions will best serve humanity. Then we can focus on mitigating problems created by Global warming and stop wasting our time on things not within our control.
Global warming is causing rising sea levels. Some islands and low lands are now experiencing serious problems. There are islands in the Pacific that are quickly disappearing and those living there need help. The Pacific Island chain of Kiribati is being inundated. The 103,000 islanders are watching their beaches disappear. Their sewage lines are flooded, and their landfill is now a floating garbage heap. Their fresh water supply is limited and in danger of becoming poisoned by the invading salt water. The island has become a disaster zone. The island is very poor, but thanks to the generosity of Fiji, Kiribati’s president Anote Tong is in the process of purchasing 5,000 acres in Fiji for $9,600,000. Eventually these islanders will make a pilgrimage to Fiji where they will be able to preserve their culture. A goal of Kiribati’s people is to acquire the skills needed to become productive residents of Fiji. They want to be self-sufficient and do not want to be considered a burden to Fiji. This is the kind of cooperation needed during this life altering crisis.
In other areas melting glaciers are diluting salt levels causing problems for sea life unable to adapt. It is feared some aquatic life may become extinct. We need to do what we can do and understand there will be changes we have no power to forestall.
When we look at our world through a limited perspective such as we see through a microscope, we cannot see the bigger picture. Information gathered from drilling into the Arctic’s Ice Core provides 400,000 years of information which assures us global warming and cooling are part of the natural cycles of earth. CO2 levels are shown to lag behind increasing temperatures showing that CO2 levels are not causing the warming.
We need to get serious about helping those affected by global warming and stop ranting about CO2 as the cause. Of course, we need to clean up the air for many, many excellent reasons but we are foolish if we think it will stop the natural heating and cooling cycles of earth. Clean air is healthy and for that reason it needs to be a top priority. We want clean air for our children and our children’s children.
We need to educate society about changes occurring in our weather patterns directly affected by our sun and earth’s position in its orbit through the universe. Earth recently completed a 25,525 year orbit. And because of our position in the universe and our proximity to the sun, we have experienced and are still experiencing many violent weather patterns. When humanity gets to a point where we stop pointing fingers of blame and get serious about working together to help those affected by warming and weather, humanity will have taken a huge leap forward.
For now Earlynn’s just sayin’ “Let’s work together in a true spirit of love and cooperation to help one another through our times of crisis.”
