Those Global Warmenings

February 17th, 2009 at 11:51am

Seeing as the news over the weekend carried the story of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reporting that carbon dioxide emissions between 2000 and 2007 were higher than they expected. Of course, the IPCC took the opportunity to bleat about how awful, horrible and world-dooming this is, conveniently ignoring the fact that temperatures have not risen over the last decade, and appear to be trending downwards.

In light of this news, I thought it would be a good time to take another look at some of the more hysterical claims about the problems which will be caused by global warmenings.

I really should save this one for later in the week, but it’s just so funny that I’m going to share it with you now. Apparently global warming will cause world war four (Update: Link corrected)…”what happened to world war three?” you ask, well these loons think it’s already happened! I suppose it’s only fitting that they also believe that carbon emissions control the climate.

So, what precisely will start WW4?

Crowding and Territorial Tensions- The number one cause of such tensions will be the migration of different cultures to other territories in search of new resources to replace the increasingly depleting ones. Not only will many cultures find their resources disappearing, but the rising sea level will cover over parts of much of the land, minimizing usable farm area, fresh water, and cattle herds. In some cases, entire islands may become submerged.
[..]
Competition of Newly Habitable Lands- The opposite scenario of crowding may also occur as the open space around the Arctic regions becomes available due to the increased air temperatures. As these uninhabitable areas become habitable for the first time in history, competition from the various coastal countries and islands who have lost their native homeland will become fierce.

In addition to the smaller powers, larger world powers who previously ignored such land will eventually see the profit potential of such areas and involve themselves in the competition. The large nations will be less interested in the usable space and more keen on the possibility of exploiting the relatively untapped oil resources of these areas for strategic economic positioning.

Oh of course, they’ll be fighting for oil…it’s amazing how they can blame oil for post-warming-apocalypse along with the warming itself.

In all seriousness though, at least they aren’t deluded enough to think that the UN would serve any useful purpose in resolving these fictional issues.

I’m still curious to find out when World War Three happened, because I must have blinked and missed it:

When you say “World War Three” the average person conjures the image of World War II. But the Cold War is the more relevant episode

The Cold War? Most countries were not involved and yet somehow it was a “world war”.

No wonder I have a hard time taking these people seriously.

More from the global warmening files tomorrow.

    Samuel, I’ve created an account here despite my annoyance at people who don’t allow for anonymous comments :-)

    I’ve updated my blog post at the following address, it seems the trackback might not have worked, which well could be my blog software and configuration rather than yours.

    Cheers,
    Brad.

    Sorry for the delayed reply Brad,

    I can understand your annoyance at having to login to leave comments…it’s not ideal but it is done out of necessity as I have far too many bots visiting these pages trying to leave comments. Many of them register, very few bother validating their registration or posting a comment, and if they do, they can’t get through as initial comments from new users are moderated.

    In regards to trackbacks etc, I disabled them due to excessive spam as well. It’s my configuration.

    Anyhoo, thanks for the update, and sorry to hear about your car (as noted on your blog)…I think I know how you feel due to somewhat similar events in my life.
