Letter to WSJ: Is global warming really a problem?

Chicago PM Thursday 2 February 2012

Editors, The Wall Street Journal


The Wall Street Journal 1 February letter “Check With Climate Scientists for Views on Climate”, as do most doom and gloom Climate scientists, eventually refers to “computer models,” here recently showing “during periods when there is a smaller increase of surface temperatures....” But have any of these Scientists ever considered a mathematical model projecting the 4.5 billion year age of the planet on a hypothetical 80-year human lifetime? Such a model shows one real earth year being 0.561 geezer seconds. Landmarks: earliest known use of charcoal (carbon) by humans, 54 minutes ago to our 80-year-old. Humans had no idea of measuring temperature before Galileo's 1593 invention of the thermometer, 4 minutes ago to our senior citizen. The letter refers to a “long-term warming trend” that “has not abated in the past decade.” Wow! a whole decade. 5.61 seconds in our model.

Humans have been on Earth 6.5 million years, 1.44% of the Earth's age. What was the climate doing in the first 98.56% of the planet's existence?

If a scientist took a blood pressure reading of an 80 year-old fellow scientist and got 120 over 80, did it again 5 minutes later and got 124 over 78, would they call 911 for an ambulance?
