Lack of Education Or Just Pure Denial of Unnatural Climate Change With Today’s American Citizens?

I don’t know how “conservatives” or the majority of them, without any evidence at all can say that climate change is not occurring in a unnatural way!  I mean the evidence is there where ever you look, and even other peoples from other cultures have oral history that states the same.  Maybe they think because their a different culture that they don’t give a damn, but the facts remain that humans are causing a breakdown of our natural ecosystem where ever you look.  This isn’t about some alleged “leftist” trap hole, I heard that commented by some conservative as well.  Whether it be from peoples oral history or natural evidence all around us, from people getting sick to 10,000 year old sediment, earth core samples or melted thousand year old glaciers…!

I debated one lady who said; “the environment goes through a natural cycle every 70 to 100 years!”

Duh!  That’s not even the point, and I think the issue is WAY over her head!  I learned about the natural cycles of the eco system since grade school, yet I also knew about “global warming” since that time.  We are not talking about the natural cycles that may occur every 100 years or so, and we’re not even talking about the seasonal changes or the changes of drought that we might see every few years.  We are talking about the unnatural climate changes!  Hello!

Not sure where people are getting their education these day’s, but I don’t think a lot of them are getting a full education from an accredited school.  Something seems to be lacking, from science to even basic histories these day’s, and it’s even scary to see our leaders getting into office without a basic education.

Arctic Sediments Show That 20th Century Warming Is Unlike Natural Variation

The possibility that climate change might simply be a natural variation like others that have occurred throughout geologic time is dimming, according to evidence in a Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper published October 19.

The research reveals that sediments retrieved by University at Buffalo geologists from a remote Arctic lake are unlike those seen during previous warming episodes.

The UB researchers and their international colleagues were able to pinpoint that dramatic changes began occurring in unprecedented ways after the midpoint of the twentieth century.

“The sediments from the mid-20th century were not all that different from previous warming intervals,” said Jason P. Briner, PhD, assistant professor of geology in the UB College of Arts and Sciences. “But after that things really changed. And the change is unprecedented.”

The sediments are considered unique because they contain rare paleoclimate information about the past 200,000 years, providing a far longer record than most other sediments in the glaciated portion of the Arctic, which only reveals clues to the past 10,000 years.  [see full article]

Utah lawmakers hear differing climate change views

I hear a lot of conservative alleging that their is no relation to human and climate change, but I wonder where they get their evidence.  Many scientist agree that the earth is warmer than is should be, and that evidence is based on scientific data, empirical data, yet the opposing scientist only state that more evidence is needed.  Okay, more evidence is needed, but what we have is a good enough reason to start making plans, and if a few years later we get the evidence from the opposing scientist they okay, but I hope that it would mean the people can continue trashing our earth.

Should people leave their trash in the street, and do they think that earth will clean itself?  They seem to  have a lot of fear and allege that this is a fear tactic, but I dispute that it’s a fear tactic because we have known about the climate changes for more than thirty years.  I remember seen a film and learning about changes brought about by human carelessness on the planet we call home more than thirty years ago. So, this can not be some alleged “fear tactic” because fear tactics require an immediate reaction, such as alleging their are terrorists all around us, so the President ends all domestic freedoms in order to combat this alleged terrorist, this is called fear tactics when it’s not even true.

Global warming knowledge has been around for decades, and many educated people already know about it.  Many have taken steps [little steps], but at least people started decades ago by recycling or composts.  It’s not that hard however more needs to be done by everyone in order to lower the C02 [350] levels in our air.

I see that some people seem to have a fear of losing jobs, but if that is the case then make jobs, their are jobs that can replace jobs that are pollutants to the earth, yet America is dragging it’s feet so that other country’s are taking up those jobs.  Last I heard China is the leader in creating wind driven power because American’s don’t want to do that.  Sounds very familiar with the High Speed Rail 30 years ago, that American’s also didn’t want to do, so the creator went to Europe to do it.

These conservatives in politics continue to hold back progress of this country.  That’s very sad!  It’s a wonder why 1 out of 6 American’s live in poverty because politicians keep holding us back, lets move forward and advance our country into the 21st century.

What you take must be replaced it’s as simple as that.  Tree’s clean our air, they take the C02 out of our air and give us O2 to breath.  If human’s continue to create C02, and cut down trees what do you think would happen?  That is basic science, but there are also more examples piling up!

Earth can not clean itself if the humans that create the excessive trash do nothing to help clean it, do you think earth will pick up your trash?  Earth needs help, what is so hard about helping keep earth clean?  Some of  you may live in small middle America where you don’t see what is happening, but look around you, look in other places, look at other countries and learn about other cultures and their history because their own history tells a story that climate change is happening.

I for one want to be clean, and I want a clean earth to live in.

Clean is a good thing! Don’t be afraid of cleanliness.

Utah lawmakers hear differing climate change views

Utah lawmakers are getting competing views on climate change, one emphasizing the vast scientific consensus about warming trends and humanity’s influence and another raising doubts about the root causes.

At a standing-room-only hearing at the Capitol Wednesday, the Public Utilities and Technology Interim Committee heard 90 minutes of testimony on climate change.

University of Utah scientist James Steenburgh, who led a state science panel on the expected effects of global warming in Utah, emphasized that temperatures are gradually rising and people are very likely to blame.

But University of Alabama researcher Roy Spencer offered doubts about that conclusion and said natural climate cycles should be more thoroughly investigated.

Lawmakers held the hearing as they follow Congress’ consideration of carbon cap and trade legislation.

Parks and Our environment should be respected and cared for generations to come

and Inhofe say’s that “god” is still up there as if he is not down here or anywhere else! 

When I was growing up I was taught that god is all around us and within us all.  Having said that we should all respect the environment instead of trashing it, as well as respect the things around us.  It’s what the First American’s believed as well; they took care of the land and respected what was in it, and used only what they needed, but when the third wave of immigrants came to this land and brought with them their views of god.  They destroyed and trashed much of the land along with killing these First American’s and took their lands, it’s how they were able to get rich so fast. 

Even today, these same types of religious people don’t give a damn about our country or the affects they are causing to it, and they’d rather ignore the evidence ,scientific evidence, over their dogmatic view and/or hate toward a person who is educating people about these issues.  It’s amazing to see the venom spewing from their mouths about people who want to protect our environment.  These are alleged “god” fearing people?

Ken Burns on His National Parks Documentary

What is it that you love so much about the parks?
They could’ve only been invented in America, where people were free, and it isn’t just a political freedom—this is where I think we get all tangled up in knots all the time. The original impulse of the national parks is spiritual. In the United States, the first tangible manifestations of this is the transcendental movement, and later the Hudson River/Rocky Mountain School of Art: it’s saying that you could find God in nature more easily than through a dogmatic devotion that required you to find God in a cathedral built by the hands of man.
