No words…Emperor Penguins going extinct

1 September 2023

I cannot even say how embarrassed I am to be a human. Are we really ready to make the hard decisions to help save our planet? And the habitat of our beloved feathered friends.

    Mary Ann, we can stop polluting our planet, but there is very little we can do about climate change. Climate is not linear it is cyclical; climate change has occurred throughout Earth’s history. We’ve gone through cold periods and warm periods much warmer than we are at present. If the human race became extinct tomorrow, the climate cycle would continue. Yes the planet would eventualy become pristine; microplastics, mercury, and industrial chemicals would eventualy disappear from the oceans, lakes and rivers, and there would be less nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and carbon monoxide in the air, but the effect of our absence on the climate cycle would be minimal.

    The theory that is promulgated by the establishment is that Climate is driven primarily by green house gasses specifically man made CO2. This is not true. Climate is complex. The main driving force of climate is the Sun, which also has its cycles. Not only does the Sun heat the earth, its changing magnetic field controls the amount of radiation that falls on the earth from outer space which affects the creation of clouds, which greatly affects climate. Carbon Dioxide is a very weak green house gas. The amount of Carbon Dioxide in the air is 412 parts per million of which it is estimated that humans are responsible for 3 to 4% of that value. The main source of Carbon Dioxide is the ocean which acts as a reservoir. And when the climate gets warm the ocean liberates more CO2 into the atmosphere. If we all died tomorrow CO2 would continue to increase and decrease; it would not remain constant. Let’s not forget that CO2 is an odourless gas which is essential for life to exist.

    Take a look back at the numerous alarmist headlines of the past 50 years, How many came true? None. How are the Polar Bears doing? They’re thriving.

    Science has been corrupted, no more was it evident in what we went through in the last couple of years, where prominent scientists and doctors were censored and many lost their jobs. Thousands of scientists, that do not depend on government funding, including nobel prize winners have recently come out and declared that CO2 is not a threat, that there is no climate emergency and that existing technology cannot replace fossil fuels. They warn that if we go ahead with this net zero nonsense millions will die; maybe that’s the goal. Didn’t Jane Goodall say that the ideal human population is 500 million?

    1. I am just reading a really good book and am aware of the cyclical nature of climate. It goes through the shifts before the mid-20th century and follows the changes and the impact that we have had on the planet during the last 80 years or so. It goes through all the ups and downs and extinctions, etc. but it also drives home what humans have done since the end of WWII and the rapid pace of change. It is Once Upon a Raven’s Nest.250 Million Years ago…explosive volcanoes release carbon dioxide into Earth’s atmosphere causing a greenhouse effect…weather patterns shift, etc. Warnings of what we have done to accelerate have been knocked about since the 1990s. Perhaps earlier, if we look at the scientists working on the effects of herbicides and pesticides, the Ozone, etc. Christian Sasse and Dave Hancock (Hancock Wildlife and Sasse with the Bald Eagles in BC) talk about the fact that the human population must be limited. I will stand right by Jane Goodall and others. The resources on our planet cannot sustain uncontrolled human population growth. My son is a scientist and most of my friends are as well and we talk about the huge impact that we have had on the planet. If there is a chance that my actions to live a life that will slow the destruction of the planet, not accelerate it, I am right there, Mario.

      Mario, your view is not shared by very many in the scientific world. And I’m not sure the polar bears would agree with you either. Or the emperor penguins. When you speak of the corruption of science, it is the fossil fuel salesmen and the capitalists who require more people to buy more of their useless disposable products who are responsible for these myths that humans are not destroying the planet at a rate way faster than anything on it can adapt to. The longer these vested interests convince people like you to keep their heads firmly wedged in the sand, the sooner this planet will be unable to support human or animal life. We are destroying Eden as fast as we possibly can to make a few greedy people more money than they could spend in a thousand lifetimes. It’s obscene.

      1. Mario says:

        Alison, that is not true. What I expressed is the view of many, many scientists. The reason you think otherwise is because the corporate media will never allow any scientist or any authority on any subject to contradict the narrative they have been instructed to disseminate. The job of the corporate media is not to inform the public but to form public opinion.

        Where in the paragraphs that I wrote did I say we are not destroying the planet? Did I not say that we are polluting the planet? What I’m trying to convey is that CO2 which every animal is continually expelling from its lungs and even expelled from plants to a lesser extent has minimal impact on global warming. I too believed in the global warming narrative, but I started becoming suspicious with the ever increasing doomsday stories. And in 2009 when hacked emails between scientists from the IPCC revealed that they were discussing how to manipulatie and falsify data, I decided to take my head out of the sand and actually look at the science. What I discovered is that there are thousands of scientists that disagree with the prevailing narrative. And I suspect that the majority don’t believe that we are in a climate crisis, but for fear of losing their jobs they toe the line. Afterall, we live in a world where if a biology teacher says men can’t have periods he or she will be summarily dismissed.

        Alison, who do you think are the pioneer proponents of the Climate Change narrative? The major proponents of the Climate Change narrative came from the petroleum industry. One of them was a Manitoban, Maurice Strong who worked for Steven Rockefeller. The people behind these huge corporations have consolidated their wealth, they have all the money they need what they want is total control over a much reduced population.
        Get ready for a cashless society, a programmable central bank digital currency that expires preventing you from accumulating wealth. A digital currency that limits what you can purchase based on your carbon score and only works in the 15 minute cities you’re forced to live in. Say goodbye to international travel.

        Toronto Sun, Jan 04, 2023 “Polar bear population on the rise: Department of Environment”
        “There are so many polar bears that they have become a nuisance, a Department of Environment report says.”

        I will shut up now. I will no longer talk about climate change which obviously has become a religion to many.

      2. Mario, Just the polar bear issue. While the population might be growing, their quality of life is definitely not! WWF: “Polar bears rely heavily on sea ice for traveling, hunting, resting, mating and, in some areas, maternal dens. But because of ongoing and potential loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change–the primary threat to polar bears Arctic-wide–polar bears were listed as a threatened species in the US under the Endangered Species Act in May 2008. As their sea ice habitat recedes earlier in the spring and forms later in the fall, polar bears are increasingly spending longer periods on land, where they are often attracted to areas where humans live.”

        Humans are breeding like crazy, too but the quality of life is deteriorating rapidly in many places including the area from the Indian subcontinent through SE Asia and in parts of Africa where osprey research is ongoing. ‘Thriving’ can mean many things but there is no correlation between numbers and quality of life. It is very sad.

    This is very sad indeed to hear about! Praying for our planet 🙏
