Forces of nature

Forces of nature tend to do their own thing regardless of people’s thoughts.

So back to reality as we know it. I believe that forces of nature will not bend to collective thought. Maybe there is hope that God will come back and make everything right? Maybe He will, but until then it is up to the thinking beings He has created to deal with the messes they made.

Now back to the title of this article: Could Global Climate Change Actually Be A Hoax? So what is a hoax? A hoax is a deception, usually intentional, to spread false information. We have been talking about fake news lately and while you could put all kinds of definitions into what fake news is, the worst is the kind that spreads false facts. Facts that are not facts at all, but falsehoods, untruth. Some news may put together their facts into a false conclusion, but the facts are still there. Some news (perhaps all news) is biased, but it still bases itself on the facts.

The idea of Global Climate Change is based on scientific fact, collected by scientists all over the world, argued out in journals, almost universally agreed upon. There is no doubt in the scientific community that the data collected shows average global temperatures increasing. It is fact, it is not a hoax. It is the best information we can possibly get, and we need to make decisions based on this information, not some alternate set of “facts”.

Now the idea that humans are the reason for Global Climate Change is another issue altogether. It is a strong theory that human activity is the cause for more than half of the global warming observed. This is a scientific theory that is agreed upon by most of the world’s scientists, after discussing, arguing, debating, publishing in journals, and so forth. It is an exceptionally strong theory, the best you can possibly get.

So what do we do about it? Can we do anything about it? That is the issue now facing the world. With all of these facts and truths, what will be done now? Political will seems to be the biggest hurdle, especially with the new American President. The President who believes in alternative facts and that our collective thought will solve problems like Global Climate Change.
