Aggressive Africanized honey bees have been discovered in several border states leading me to conclude that, by century’s end, the United States (and yes, the world) will succumb to global swarming. Does anyone believe in global swarming?
Probably, uh no. Does everyone believe in climate change? Possibly, yes. Of course, I believe in climate change. It has been happening for tens (hundreds?) of millions of years. The earth heats up, the earth cools down; aka climate change. Patrick Moore, one of the co-founders of Greenpeace (a environmental advocacy group circa 1971), left the group 15 years later. I quote, “Greenpeace became focused not on global warming but on the politics of global warming. There is no scientific proof that human emissions of CO2 are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years.”
This statement was made in front of a senate committee on the environment. There is ample scientific evidence to dispute “warmist” claims of global catastrophe. The Vostok ice core expedition stands out as a good “show me” example. Above Lake Vostok in Antartica, French and Russian scientists drilled down into the ice to a depth of 10,000 feet to obtain deep core samples which provided temperature and CO2 data over the past 420,000 years. A few clicks away, the truth will set you free.
