British Professor Stephen Hawking wrote a letter to President Trump criticising America’s pull out from the Paris Climate Change Agreement, arguing that this
could be the “tipping point” which wipes out humanity and turns our planet into a living hell. Source
Hawking believes the Earth will end up like Venus, a literal planetary hell-hole if we continue to emit the greenhouse gas CO2 into the atmosphere.
Of course no one has observed Venus turning into a thermal hell-hole but our ancestors did, apparently, witness its birth as an ejection from Jupiter, and that humanity feared it because of its cometary-like characteristics. It was Immanuel Velikovsky who first proposed that Venus would be hot because it was a recently formed planet. This was put forward in his controversial book Worlds in Collision and published in 1950. It was met with a hostile reception by the scientific world and during the 1970’s Carl Sagan used the fabrication of a runaway greenhouse process to explain the Venusian temperature. The American scientist Jim Hansen was a PhD student under Sagan’s supervision and his thesis was the Venusian atmosphere.
It was this unproven assertion by Sagan, later admitted to be thermodynamically impossible, that fueled the present global warming and climate change meme and Hawking, living in his mathematical fantasy, is simply continuing the tradition of fake science.
We are not dealing with science but religion – since global warming hasn’t occurred yet in order for a theory to be framed to explain it. It’s all prophesy and no observation, and Hawking will most likely be remembered as another prophet to join Isiah, Ezekiel and all the rest of the various religious doomsayers over the course of history.
The problem with the religious is that they have retreated into their own imaginary world that is divorced from physical reality. It is the outcome of too much thinking about things that only exist in their minds and like zombies, they will react from cognitive dissonance when the rest of us prefer not to join them on their journey to la la land utopia.
All Hawking has done is extrapolated the past, his memories, into the future. What he and his fellow CO2 illusionists seem unable to work out is that humanity has survived quite a few climate catastrophes, according to what historical evidence there is, since the Bronze Ages, and their intellectual retreat into the vast cave that is their minds have resulted them ending up lost and forever wandering around in their personal la la lands, escaping the memories of the past (real) by constant thinking and repeating magical mantras and incantations to ward off the ever present fear they refuse to confront.
And like lemmings they will eventually run off the cliff and for those of us who remain in the rational world, the trick then is not to be swept up with them in the mad mob behaviour.
