Joe Biden recently convened a global summit on the “existential threat” of climate change. Despite that the ecosystem–plants, animals, and humans–have been adapting to the ever-changing climate since life began on this planet, nevertheless global leaders, who believe they know best, convened to try to stop climate change.
Progressives and Democrats are wont to lecture the rest of us about the need to follow the “science.” If a person doesn’t live in perpetual fear of the “existential threat” of climate change, progressives and Democrats are also wont to label that person a “climate denier.”
John Kerry, Biden’s “climate envoy”, decried former President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord:
Regrettably, without any facts, without any science, without any rationale that would be considered reasonable, the former president decided to pull out.
Kerry was described in one news article as “battle-tested” on the subject of climate change:
Kerry, who has worked on climate issues in a long career as a senator and former secretary of state, said the next 10 years are crucial to slow global warming and “avoid the worst consequences” of the climate crisis.
Therefore, if true that Kerry is a climate expert, then one would expect the man to be far more knowledgeable than any run-of-the-mill elementary school graduate. Alarmingly, however, Kerry went on to declare that
Even if we get to net zero, we still need to get carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. This is a bigger challenge than a lot of people have really grabbed on to yet.
Maybe that’s because most people who took even rudimentary lessons on scientific topics like photosynthesis or the hydrologic cycle know that without carbon dioxide at a sufficient level in our atmosphere all plants will die!
Yes, every last plant will die unless CO2 is at least 150 parts per million in the atmosphere. But if Kerry gets his way and “we” remove all carbon from the atmosphere, then all plant life, all animal life, all human life will cease to exist.
In fact, in order to achieve his goal, then every animal, including every human, would have to immediately stop breathing because every exhalation “pollutes” the atmosphere with CO2.
The photo above is of Mercury, a planet that has a minuscule amount, if any, of CO2 in its atmosphere. That photo is a good representation of what would become of Earth if climate change wackos like Kerry get their way.
If the science is too complex for an elitist snob like Kerry to understand by reading, then perhaps he ought to watch the film (or the TV show) named Snowpiercer. The action
takes place aboard the Snowpiercer train as it travels a globe-spanning track, carrying the last remnants of humanity after a failed attempt at climate engineering to stop global warming has created a new Snowball Earth.
Science fiction is often prescient and, in this instance, quite uncomfortably on target as filmmakers illustrate what the arrogance of some of our so-called “leaders” may cause to come to pass.
A desolate world like Mercury? A “snowball Earth?”
Remember what kids used to say to uppity know-it-all bullies who tried to run their lives in elementary school?
Who died and left you boss (or king)?
Where’s the democratic process in the schemes these global elite are prepared to foist upon us all, perhaps to the detriment of all?
