QUORA POST#33

Posted on: August 21, 2021

QUESTION:

How big of a threat is climate change really?

ANSWER:

The future is hard to forecast but the past is easy to hindcast. And if we study the past we find that we Homo Sapiens have been through two glaciation cycles, two deglaciation cycles and about 20 interglacial warming and cooling cycles and we’re still here and the planet is still here, and through all this climate hell our species have advanced and made great progress in our quality of life. I propose that in that context, the idea that this interglacial warming cycle will do us in does not make sense.

EXCERPT:

WE MODERN HUMANS HAVE BEEN THROUGH TWO GLACIATION CYCLES AND TWO INTERGLACIALS. THIS INTERGLACIAL, THE HOLOCENE, IS OUR SECOND INTERGLACIAL AND IT WAS CREATED AFTER OUR SECOND GLACIATION HAD ENDED. OUR FIRST GLACIATION WAS THE PRIOR GLACIATION CYCLE THAT HAD ENDED IN THE EEMIAN INTERGLACIAL ABOUT 120,000 YEARS AGO. IN OUR FIRST GLACIATION CYCLE WE WERE PALEOLITHIC HUMANS, ESSENTIALLY TWO LEGGED ANIMALS LIVING ISOLATED LIVES IN CAVES WITH IMMEDIATE FAMILY AND HUNTING AND EATING OTHER ANIMALS INCLUDING OTHER HUMANS. THESE PRIMITIVE HUMANS SURVIVED TWO VIOLENT AND CHAOTIC GLACIATIONS AND THE PREVIOUS INTERGLACIAL, CALLED THE EEMIAN THAT WAS A STRONGER AND MORE VIOLENT INTERGLACIAL THAN THE HOLOCENE WITH HOTTER WARMING CYCLES THAN WHAT WE HAVE TODAY. FOLLOWING IN THE HEELS OF THE EEMIAN INTERGLACIAL, OUR PALEOLITHIC ANCESTORS SURVIVED THE NEXT GLACIATION AND ITS VIOLENT DEGLACATION INTO THE HOLOCENE INTERGLACIAL THAT WE ARE IN TODAY. THAT TOOK US TO THE FIRST OF MANY GLOBAL WARMING CYCLES OF THE HOLOCENE IN WHICH OUR PALEOLITHIC ANCESTORS FOUND THEMSELVES IN A STRONG 4,000-YEAR GLOBAL WARMING CYCLE CALLED THE “HOLOCENE CLIMATE OPTIMUM (HCO)”. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THEY SURVIVED THE GLOBAL WARMING AND THE PLANET SURVIVED THE GLOBAL WARMING. AND WE THEIR DESCENDENTS ARE STILL HERE AND ALIVE AND WELL AND THE PLANET IS STILL HERE. THE HCO WAS JUST AS HOT IF NOT HOTTER THAN THE GLOBAL WARMING WE ARE IN NOW WHICH WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO FEAR. AS IT TURNS OUT, OUR MODERN HUMAN ANCESTORS DID MORE THAN JUST SURVIVE THE HCO. THE HCO GLOBAL WARMING GAVE US THE RIGHT KIND OF A WARM CLIMATE FOR OUR PALEOLITHIC ANCESTORS TO COME OUT OF THEIR CAVES, TO CLEAR THE FORESTS, TO BEGIN FARMING, AND TO BUILD HOMES AND TO CREATE COMMUNITIES OF HUMANS. THIS EVENT WAS A GIANT STEP IN THE ADVANCE OF THE HUMAN SPECIES FROM PALEOLITHIC TO NEOLITHIC, FROM HUMAN ANIMALS TO HUMAN CIVILIZATION. HUMAN CIVILIZATION IS A CREATION OF THE HCO GLOBAL WARMING OF THE HOLOCENE., THE SAME INTERGLACIAL WHOSE WARMING CYCLES WE HAVE NOW BEEN TAUGHT TO FEAR.

If Europe, Siberia and North America were buried under mile high continental ice sheets 10,000+ years ago, it must’ve been cold, right?

Wrong.

How did all that water get there, why was sea level 100 meters lower and why was the Sahara green?

The only way to extract millions of cubic miles of sea water and deposit it at the poles and the higher latitudes and altitudes is with intense Global Warming over thousands of years.

When you heat a planet that’s 75% covered by water you get lots of water vapor and lots precipitation and green Sahara.

When the winter snowfall is greater than the summer melt the ice accumulates over thousands of years and eventually has nowhere to go but south.

When Global Cooling begins you get a lot less water vapor and a lot less precipitation and the glaciers and ice sheets are “starved” of precipitation.

When the summer melt exceeds the winter snowfall the glaciers and ice sheets begin to shrink.

Global Cooling started 10,000+ years ago and is continuing today as evidenced by the fact that the glaciers and polar ice is continuing to melt away.

Sorry if this blows up the entire current Global Warming hysteria but facts are facts.

Thank you Ruben, as always.
