Read here. Could the mainstream media turn the world into Snowball Earth? Don't laugh, they already turned rational billionaires into hysterical zombies, spending money on crazy solutions that could cause significant harm to billions.
"The natural state of most planets is cold, very cold. Planet Earth owns some prime orbital real estate near its sun, but even so it has experienced periods of Snowball Earth, when virtually the entire planet was covered with snow and ice. If humans are not careful how they approach the chaotic issue of Earth's climate, they could very well push the planet back toward that strange and very cold attractor."
MSM purveyors of those scary climate disaster scenarios, produced by computer simulations and their programmers, have already had a deleterious impact on the world: the ethanol corn scam; wind turbine bird and bat slaughter; tropical deforestation from planting of bio-fuels; high food prices for the world's poverty stricken; regulating traditional light bulbs out of existence and moving bulb manufacturing jobs to China; visual landscape pollution from wind/solar energy farms; forcing mercury-laden, toxic CFL bulbs on the public; and, etc.
Without the ludicrous, over-the-top hysteria that the MSM generates about "catastrophic" global warming, most of the idiotic and panicked responses initiated by politicians and bureaucrats so far, such as above, could have been avoided.
But the MSM keeps fanning the flames of hysteria, which could well lead politicians to make even dumber decisions, pushing "solutions" that would be civilization threatening. One such solution is an effort to geo-engineer the climate, potentially leading to Earth's next ice age - a lifeless, snowball world.
"Orthodox believers in the holy warmer religion, CAGW, believe strongly that our current inter-glacial is already too warm, and in danger of becoming even warmer--all because of human influence on climate. So what do they want to do? They want to magnify the human influence on climate beyond all belief. Do you think they have heard of "unintended consequences?"..."The difference between a glacial ice age and an inter-glacial period is not well understood. It is not actually known what would be required to trigger the next glaciation. The type of reduction in solar radiation impacting Earth that is being proposed appears to fall within the range of possible glaciation triggers. What type of carbon hysteria would cause scientists to propose such bold measures to counteract something that is not even a crisis--and is unlikely ever to become one?"
