MEMBER DIARY

to really understand the global warming debate, chuckie recommends….

let's see if redstate is DC....

reading science fiction….not the algore kind of science fiction, but the kind represented by larry niven, jerry pournelle, and some guy named michael flynn, of whom i have never heard of otherwise (yeah i know i put too many ofs in that sentence)…..people who write fiction that is based on REAL SCIENCE…..people who are scrupulous to be sure of ALL the details….niven and pournelle are kinda like, infamous for this, in that their science is, like….um…REAL……

so like, in 1991, they all three wrote this book which is coming true today…it’s called “Fallen Angels” and anyone interested in the global warming debate should go out right now and find it on ABEbooks or at their library or wherever they can find it, and read it…”where have all the neutrinos gone….?”…

let me just quote the back of the book, which kinda explains a lot about it…okay, here i go…

“That government, dedicated to saving the environment from the evils of technology, had been voted into power because everybody knew that the Green House Effect had to be controlled, whatever the cost. But who would have thought that the cost of ending pollution would include not only total government control of day-to -day life, but the onset of a new Ice Age?”

I am a science nerd, i admit it…..i also admit that i have learned more real science from reading “hard” science fiction than from any textbooks, which, lemme tell you, i do actually read for fun…..because i, for some reason, like science……probably because, when it’s REAL science, that means you can PROVE it….

like with “global warming”….why is it no one ever mentions that, for as far back as we can measure, it was the temperature that went up first, BEFORE the co2……which always kinda tagged along as some kind of afterthought….does not lead a thinking person to believe that it was the co2 driving the temperature up, does it…..

well, it doesn’t matter anyway, the government has decided that co2 is the culprit, and we will all BE MADE TO PAY………..

i realize that it’s ages since i wrote this diary…i am going to try to post it now, because i have not been able to comment for about two weeks….and i have received no response whatever to my inquiries about that…..and so…i’m just experimenting, a la the scientific method, to see if this still works…or not…..because, if i can’t comment, and can’t publish a diary….well, then, i must have done SOMETHING HORRIBLY WRONG….and yet, no one will explain it to me……which makes redstate just another arm of DC, doesn’t it……..
