Global warming not human caused

Thurston Regional Planning Council is currently engaged in gaining public opinion on its Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan.

I recently went on line and completed the survey – – to the best of my ability.  It was tough answering questions designed to elicit a particular response wanted by the TRPC staff.

Anyone who completes the survey is just confirming the fact that global warming is a human-made problem and can be solved by human activities. 

I think that’s wrong.  Global climate change has been occurring periodically over the last 5 billion years of earth’s existence .  Human’s were not on this planet for most of that time.

Scientist say that the earth is warmer now than it has been in the last hundred years that records have been kept.  And that the only answer to the warming is human activity.  If that’s the case – – and I doubt it – – how do they account for the hundreds of times earth’s climate has changed in the past.  A hundred years of data on earth’s climate is not even a miniscule amount of time.

I believe that climate change is real.  I believe that it is a normal occurrence  that has happened many times in the past.   I don’t believe that human activity accounts for a significant portion of global warming.   And, I don’t believe there is anything significant that humans can do to stop or slow down the warming.

We’re just fooling ourselves if we think  we have that power to cause the problem or solve the problem.

I would suggest that we spend our time and money on planning how we’re going to live with a warmer earth and begin the process of doing something constructive, instead of wasting time and money on trying to stop a problem we haven’t created and can’t solve.
