Climate Change: The Real Peril
by Philip V. Brennan
1 Aug 07 - "They used to call it global warming but cooler heads appear to have decided to hedge their bets and re-christen the problem "climate change" a description that covers all kinds of eventualities.

"After all, if the warnings that the world is getting colder instead of warmer (actually it's doing both) turn out to be accurate, they can claim to have been on the side of the angels no matter what happens.

"The battle however, still rages. On one side you have the likes of Sir David King, who served as chief scientist in Tony Blair's government, making the absurd claim that global warming is a greater threat to mankind than terrorism.

"On the other side there are scientists such as Reid Bryson, known as the father of scientific climatology, who said of Al Gore's movie about global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," which he refused to watch, "Don't make me throw up, It is not science. It is not true."

"Personally I couldn't care less which side is right. What I do care about is where Mother Nature is leading us, and baby, it isn't paradise on earth.

"Look at it this way. Right now we are watching places like Texas and Great Britain being drowned by seemingly never-ending multiple inches of rainfall and the raging floods the rainfall creates. Recently some areas in the United States have been devastated by tornadoes of unimaginable destructive capacity. Last winter snowfall in some areas reached levels as much as 13 or 14 feet high.

"Taking into consideration the fact that an inch of rain amounts to a foot of snow, you can get an idea of what's going to happen when all that precipitation falls as white stuff next winter.

"Mr., Gore and his minions keep telling us that the polar regions are warming. They fail to mention that the snow pack in the northern regions of Canada keeps growing and providing the medium for those bitter cold blasts of frigid air coming south in the winter, and the cold air being experienced right now in much of the northern U.S.

"They just ignore all that and keep chanting the mantra that the polar ice is melting and we're all going to be barbecued unless we surrender most of our liberties to the Marxist commissars in the U.N.

"The present interglacial period has lasted about 12,000 years. If the history of this planet's climate over millions of years is any guide, we are about to enter a new ice age. History tells us our time is about up.

"Studies such as those done by Genevieve Woillard in 1978 showed that the transition period between interglaciation and glaciation lasts about 175 years, with the final 20 years a period of increased violence.

"It is that period of time that must concern us because all of the signs point to the fact that we are living in its final phase. And it is that vital fact that is being obscured by the debate surrounding climate change. When we should be facing the unpleasant fact that the world we know is about to vanish in a maelstrom of violence, we are engaged in a meaningless struggle that blinds us to the nasty fate Mother Nature has in store for us.

"What we will see is what should concern us — a huge increase in storms becoming more and more violent, monster tornadoes that devastate large areas creating unimaginable wreckage in their wake, more volcanic eruptions and earthquakes of increasing violence and massive amounts of precipitation causing floods and snowfall towering far above us.

"Doubt it? Look around you, It's happening now, and getting worse with each passing year. Spring and fall are slowly disappearing, winters last longer and summers get shorter. Then one day in the very near future, in the winter much of the northern tier of states will be buried in mountains of snow that do not melt for months, while more and more snow piles on top of them.

"In view of this reality, the hysteria over global warming engendered by the likes of Al Gore and his fellow Marxist Mikhail Gorbachev is nothing short of criminal. When we should be contemplating what awaits us and how we shall deal with it both spiritually and materially, we are being blinded by a false dichotomy over global climate that ignores the reality of what it actually happening to the earth and its people.

"If I had to guess, I'd say the next five years will be the worst in all the history of mankind, with each year more terrible than the last. After that?"
