How It All Began by See Review Comments at the end of this Paper Imagined risk All available evidence indicates that man-made global warming is a physical impossibility, but if the predicted warming could be induced it would probably provide net benefits.
However, there is a widespread imagined risk of the warming and politicians are responding to it. Responses to imagined risk are often extreme and dangerous. For example, somebody with a fear of mice may see a mouse and as a response try to jump on a chair causing damage to the chair and injury to himself.
There is no point in telling the injured person that mice are harmless because fear is irrational so cannot be overcome by rational argument.
Widespread imagined risk is to be expected as the end of the twentieth century the end of the second millennium approaches. Prophets of doom have occurred when the end of each past century approached.
So, history suggests that the global warming scare or something like it can be expected at this time. Global warming proponents call for reduced CO2 emissions and this equates to a call for cuts in the use of energy, but the energy industries have done more to benefit mankind than anything else since the invention of agriculture.
It is physically impossible for wind and solar energies to supply the energy needs of the developed world, and the peoples of the developing world are insisting on their right to develop too.
And this is especially the case when they attack something so clearly beneficial to mankind as the use of fossil fuels. But imagined risk is not rational, so reasonable expectations do not apply.
The simple fact that it is physically impossible for CO2 emissions to cause man-made global warming has no effect on imagined fear of global warming. It is a simple fact that a mouse cannot eat a person, but some people try to jump on chairs at the sight of mice.
Also, some global warming proponents are accepting a good financial income from the global warming scare and have become global warming propagandists to promote their interests. These include some researchers who obtain research grants and some environmental organisations who need donations.
They are making a living by promoting fear of man-made global warming. Snake oil salesmen sold snake oil that did not require real snakes to make it.
Global warming propagandists are selling fear of man-made global warming and that does not require real man-made global warming to make it.
But consideration of the origins of the global warming scare deny the existence of any such conspiracy. Interests coincided and supported each other. And a coincidence of interests usually has a more powerful effect than a group of conspirators.
The origins of the scare are political and have resulted in political policies that now threaten serious economic damage for the entire world.
The origins of the global warming scare The hypothesis of man-made global warming has existed since the s. It was an obscure scientific hypothesis that burning fossil fuels would increase CO2 in the air to enhance the greenhouse effect and thus cause global warming. Then, inMrs Margaret Thatcher now Lady Thatcher became Prime Minister of the UK, and she elevated the hypothesis to the status of a major international policy issue.
Mrs Thatcher is now often considered to have been a great UK politician: But she had yet to gain that reputation when she came to power in Then, she was the first female leader of a major western state, and she desired to be taken seriously by political leaders of other major countries.
This desire seemed difficult to achieve because her only experience in government had been as Education Secretary i. He pointed out that almost all international statesmen are scientifically illiterate, so a scientifically literate politician could win any summit debate on a matter which seemed to depend on scientific understandings.
And Mrs Thatcher had a BSc degree in chemistry.This part of the alphabetnyc.com web site looks into the issue of corporate influence in the mainstream media.

This part of the global issues web site looks at this question. It is astounding that dangerous man-made global warming fanatics like Obama and Prince Charles, in addition to all those climate change charlatans at various academies of science such as The Royal Society, prefer to ignore real word observational data on climate and solar activity, in favour of psuedo-science and climate models that consistently have failed in their scenarios and projections.
The global warming pros and cons debate is one of the most fiercely contested in the U.S. Whilst the global debate is centered around the cons of global warming, there are a small number of potential pros of global warming too.
