I came across this article and thought I’d reproduce it for a laugh:-
Many people believe that global warming is a hoax. But is it?
I am very concerned of the present situation of Mother Earth and I always worry what may happen to Mother Earth come tomorrow. I have strong belief that global warming is true. There are numerous indications of global warming. Just look at all the incidents happening in our world today; the frequent earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, landslides, cyclones and worst the sudden change of weather which could become extreme hot or extreme cold.
Let’s examine this. First they use “mother earth”, creating a person out of an inanimate collection which signals someone incapable of dealing with the mechanisms of inanimate objects who much prefers dealing with things with which they can have “emotional” contact.
I have a strong belief. They may as well say … I have no evidence except my belief.
Just look at all the incidents happening in our world today… just compare the number of incidents today with any period of known history and you will find nothing has changed. The only difference is that this person’s memory doesn’t stretch beyond “today”.
Earthquakes, tsunamis … in case they are reading… there isn’t to my knowledge a single paper linking global warming to earthquakes. Now, whilst warming could cause the earth’s crust to expand and in theory lead to increased stresses, at best this fraction of a degree is much less in magnitude than the daily or yearly stresses caused by warming/cooling of night/day, summer/winter. Now if the 10s of degrees of change from winter-> summer aren’t enough to cause earthquakes (something which can be tested by counting the rate of earthquakes by season) then there’s no way the minuscule amount of warming attributed to CO2 could be doing so. (I’ll skip details about rate of penetration into crust).
