I left the following comment at http://valkayec.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/climate-change-ended-the-age-of-pyramids/
After answering my comment, and I don’t even think she grasped the fact that the Sahara went to desert as the climate cooled after the Holocene Maximum.
In spite of the incompetence of world leaders who have plunged us into the current recession, and that can be traced to Bill Clinton’s social engineering policies when he “encouraged” banks to lower their criteria for housing loans, Valerie reaffirms her faith in world leaders and other “experts”
I tried to answer her reply but it was immediately spammed.
I apologise here, Valerie has since restored my comment which appears below.
The change that caused the Sahara area to become desert was a COOLING after the Holocene Maximum.
Here is a reference which mentions this fact and there are many others.
Perhaps your post needs a little revision?
I think that we are in the grip of the biggest and most insane hoax in history, and unless the public get wise to it soon, we will all be parted from what wealth we have.
Lets take a simple economic view of what is likely to happen.
In the absence of sufficient alternative solutions/technologies, the only way western countries can ever attain the IPCC demands of CO2 emissions reduced to 40% below 1990 levels, (thats about 60% below todays) is to machine restrictions on the use of fossil fuels. Emission Trading schemes are an example.
As the use of fossil fuels is roughly linear with anthropogenic CO2 emissions, to attain a 60% reduction of emissions , means about the same proportion of reduction of fossil fuel usage, including petrol, diesel, heating oil, not to mention coal and other types including propane etc.
No matter how a restriction on the use of these is implemented, even a 10% decrease will make the price of petrol go sky high. In otherwords, (and petrol is just one example) we can expect, if the IPCC has its way, a price rise on petrol of greater than 500%.
First of all, for all normal people, this will make the family car impossible to use. Worse than that though, the transport industry will also have to deal with this as well and they will need to pass the cost on to the consumer. Simple things like food will get prohibitively expensive. Manufacturers who need fossil energy to produce will either pass the cost on to the consumer or go out of business. If you live further than walking distance from work, you will be in trouble.
All this leads to an economic crash of terrible proportions as unemployment rises and poverty spreads.
I believe that this will be the effect of bowing to the IPCC and the AGW lobby. AND as AGW is a hoax it will be all in vain. The world will continue to do what it has always done while normal people starve and others at the top (including energy/oil companies and emission traders) will enjoy the high prices.
Neither this scenario nor any analysis of the cost of CO2 emission reductions is included in IPCC literature, and the Stern report which claims economic expansion is simply not obeying economic logic as it is known in todays academic world.
The fact that the emission reduction cost issue is not discussed, leads me to believe that there is a deliberate cover up of this issue. Fairly obviously the possibility of starvation will hardly appeal to the masses.
AGW is baloney anyway!
Frankly, I sincerely doubt your dire fiscal prognosis if governments, technology and innovation leaders come together to work on solutions. My blog post had nothing to do with the IPCC or AGW, but rather I hoped it to serve an announcement of a previously unknown occurrence in the past and what could occur in the future if humans refuse to pay attention. Humans are creative enough to beat global change if we choose. The only problem is do we choose to beat it or will we suffer and endure the global change felt by those ancient Middle Easterners six thousand years ago?
Thanks for your reply.
Did you did grasp my point that the decline of Egypt was the COOLING after the Holocene Maximum.
Warming does not bring drought and hardship COOLING does.
A modern example is the drought in California which is caused by cooler sea temperatures. http://weather.weatherbug.com/weather-news/weather-reports.html?story=10972
“I sincerely doubt your dire fiscal prognosis if governments, technology and innovation leaders come together to work on solutions.”
Well if you notice that we have dire fiscal problems in the US, Britain and Europe right now. Traditionally governments make recessions worse anyway. If you want to read Milton Friedman you may find out how and why. So good luck with trusting those people you mention.
Do you not think that the fact that these leaders have not yet even honestly discussed the likely costs of reducing carbon emissions to joe public is a serious problem in itself?
What I am saying, you can trust no one, look for the facts if you can find any and keep an open mind.
All politicians do is listen to the voter and do anything that gains them votes.
The above comment was spammed, but has since been restored.
I am looking forward to her further reply.
