ETHICAL ISSUES: THE ETHICS of GLOBAL WARMING

THE “GLOBAL WARMING” SCARE: Fact or Fiction?

It’s been said that the Earth is round so that man can see only as far as he can handle (that’s about 13 miles, depending on how tall you are).  It doesn’t amount to much when you think about how far far can be, but some people can’t even handle that.  (It’s also been said that when a person accuses another of a misconduct or wrongdoing, the accuser often is guilty of that very thing.)

Walking in a straight line, you would travel about 25,000 miles to return to where you started (that’s the circumference of our planet).  Pretty far, but…

Think about a three-letter word: BIG

BIG – the Universe (nature, bigtime).  46 BILLION light years across.  And growing. A light year is the distance light travels (at 186,000 miles per SECOND) in one year.  And that’s just what we can see from Earth.  To put this in perspective:

One light year = 5.87849981 × 1012 miles.  That’s nearly: 6 X 1 followed by 12 zeroes, or 6,000,000,000,000 miles.  Multiply that by 46 Billion and you might be overwhelmed by how BIG BIG can be.  That’s another three-letter word:

FAR.  FAR is 276,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (276Septillion, or 276 thousand multiplied by itself seven times) miles.  That’s FAR.  And getting farther…

Before we go farther (pun intended), you may wish to click on www.extremeethics.org/?p=1087 to see how Earth (a living planet, part of the Universe) deals with itself, all by itself (naturally).  And how it is responsible for its creations (which include humanity).

What’s all this got to do with ethics?  Plenty.  Because we self-absorbed (and often aggrandizing) humans often (always?) forget about how totally insignificant we are, even if we are politicians.

Does anyone actually believe that he can control, or even predict, climate?  We can’t even predict daily weather, which has only a maximum of 25,000 miles to travel.  Climate is even more difficult because it’s subject to cosmic input that we don’t understand.  Humanity adapts to climate—we don’t control it.  When man claims that he can predict and control climate, he’s being unethical because he’s kidding himself (stupidity) and trying to influence others (LYING).

Who can explain global warming in the face of the past three winters in the US?  NOBODY.  Who can claim to know how to control climate by changing mankind’s habits?  NOBODY.

While Earth may be warming, it’s a natural phenomenon.  While Earth’s climate may be adapting, it’s natural.  The current “global warming” scare is a lie, and it’s unethical.  And when its advocates claim that 97% of climate scientists agree that man is responsible, they are lying because THAT SIMPLY IS NOT TRUE.  And when John Kerry claims that “a tiny minority of shoddy scientists…and extreme ideologues compete with scientific fact,” he not only is kidding himself but is LYING (and being unethical), because THAT SIMPLY IS NOT TRUE (and can be proven so).  What IS true is that “a tiny minority” of self-aggrandizing politicians, institutional scientists and ideologues seek to profit (in both money and power) from the lie, illustrating the point: When a person accuses another of a misconduct or wrongdoing, the accuser often is guilty of that very thing.
