Ugh. You have it pretty bad, don't you?
Attached to a report that once again the GLOBAL temperature of the world has broken a record again for the nth consecutive time you say "change? There is no change."
A record for the last 65 years... Uhm, the earth is older than 100 years
So much older that these puny little 65 years can't even be shown on a timeline that shows the earth's total existence. That alone should tell you that the claim of a record is a nutter's claim. Yes, we may not have had thermometers all around earth at the time of the Romans or earlier, but we have scientific ways of determining a lot of data from the time. So, no, it's not a record. It's a little high in a lot of recent low, that's all.
And you question: who is to profit? Well the current energy producerrs (oil) are to profit from the status quo. Alternative energy producers from a change. Now who has the most money?
Of course all incumbents will protect their business as best they can and if a newcomer tries to steal their business with fraud and corruption they are entitled to defend themselves. The fact is that the incumbents also don't have clean hands, so it's a case of Dirty Harry versus Al Capone. The bigger gangsters win.
So then it all reverts back to science. Not reporting about science. Not court cases where a pseudo scientist tries to sue his critics for defamation. Not newspapers' interpretation of science. It's all about the actual science. And to learn who's talking trash and who's correct, you have to read the research and then the criticism/reviews.
Very little of the Anthropogenic Global Warming (incorrrectly renamed "climate change" by the media) is based on proven science and most of it is based on faulty climate models that have not even once been able to actually match measured temperatures, yet they are used to predict the catastrophic collapse of the world as we know it in a few (10, 20, 50 or 100) years.
It's a pompous and preposterous, extremely arrogant claim and even more so when they drive to impose taxes on those that are much poorer that the imposers (or should I rather say imposters?) and whose very livelihoods are seriously affected by the lack of consistent low cost energy that could be available to them otherwise.
