Questions for politicized climate scientists
Letter to Herald, 16/9/2019

If a light is held close to an object, the object gets hot. If a larger bulb is used, the object gets hotter. If the surface is painted white, the temperature is moderated, if black, it gets hotter.

Three factors: (1) Distance between source and object, for earth Milankovitch cycles. (2) Intensity of source, for earth solar minimums. (3) Conditions on the surface of the object, for earth greenhouse gases, and glaciation.

For much discussion, both (1) and (2) often ignored, are we to assume that distance and intensity have no effect? If so, how do scientists account for climate variation say, 100,000,000 years ago?

If (1) and (2) are rated significant, will they compound the impact of greenhouse gases or moderate it? And how does the significance of distance from sun and intensity of sun impact the effect of greenhouse gases? It must be reduced.

There is no question the climate is changing. That is no issue …

The issue is demanding economic action adversely impacting our economy when likely nothing we do will have an effect.

We don’t really know what exactly to plan for, hot or cold, with one plausible scientific opinion (involving solar minimums) predicting it is going to get very cold…

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

  1. When you cant stop what’s already happened …which it has ..we all need to prepare for living with the consequences and learn to cope with #ClimateChange and not sure it as a political brickbat ….

    1. Ian correct we are all responsible including those Law Makers who are given the Mandate to Guard of Planet. We vote these proposed Guardians to protect the Earth. Yes, it is their responsibility to Govern all issues. If there were no laws to mandate then what are any of the responsible options are there. Political Science of ignorance or just ignoring our planet will augmented response to get these Guardians off the arsses and work for their money. Yes, evolution changes exist, the world moves on but I often wonder in our lifetime how future generations of humans will think of us. Perhaps this is Heaven and Hell on Earth, my friend
