    That the earth is heating up is incontrevertible. It is.

    What's being debated is why. There are two main theories.

    The 'Grand Coincidence Theory'. That the earth is heating 'just because', with no mechanism, no causation, no explanation. And just happens to be heating at an enormous rate at the *exact* same time we're pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere at enormous rates.....by pure coincidence.

    Or that Humans are causing climate change through CO2 emissions. Where we can chart rising temperatures AND rising CO2 levels. And in real time, measure the higher amounts of infra-red radiation being emitted by carbon dioxide in our atmosphere specifically, with those amount of Infra-red radiation rising as the CO2 levels rise.

    With a mechanism, explanation, mountains of evidence and no need for a grand coincidence.

    The 'Grand Coincidence' theory is just an awful explanation of events. The CO2 Climate Change models are much more fact based and a vastly superior explanation of events.

    A person, a group of people, companies (subjects) can not change the natural course of History.
    They can only accelerate or slow things down.
    The world is objective, not subjective. A subject can change the world within the limits of his strength, knowledge and influence, but sooner or later his model will not work if it contradicts the objective world.

    What does 'contradict the objective world' even mean?

    Conspiracy theorists are weak-minded people.

    Right there is the problem. That's NOT "THE" GW question that matters. Because every credible GW skeptic AGREES to that question. It's the hype and exaggeration of "all positive feedbacks" and accelerations and "irreversible trigger temps" ---- and 100 OTHER questions that need a consensus. And there is none.

    In fact, all the hysteria has been blown out of those early proclamations of doom, and the estimates of temperatures, sea level, climate sensitivity have CONSTANTLY been revised down for the past 25 years.

    The circus is almost over. There's an issue. But it's NOT an "earth ending" proposition anymore.

    Conspiracy theories are essentially binkies. Something comforting to suckle.

    The world is a chaotic, often unfair and uncertain place. And for some, the lack of certainty is far more terrifying than envisioning a cabal of nefarious hooligans conspiring together to control everything. As at least *someone* is in control.

    The reality is, yes. Sometimes a handful of hijackers can cause massive devastation. Sometimes a single deranged idiot can slaughter a class room's worth of 6 year old. Sometimes, a determined idiot with a Ryder truck can blow up a federal building.

    And there is no such thing as absolute control. There is always an element of chaos. Sometimes a lot more than merely an 'element'. And a disrturbing degree of life happens by accident and chance.

    For some souls, this simple truth is too much to bear. So they imagine fantastically elaborate conspiracies involving tens of thousands of people working behind the scenes, an underlying system of control. As that fantasy makes them far more comfortable than the stark truth that there's really no one at the wheel.

    That's what they want you to think.

    Here is the funniest conspiracy theory EVER invented by mankind as proven in this video not a shread of evidence was ever proven that this conspiracy theory in this video invented by the government and the press was true , It had NO facts to back it up,yet the sheep in america swallowed it hook,line,and sinker same as they did the magic bullet theory invented by the government.:rolleyes::abgg2q.jpg:

    .the keystone cops could have done a much better investigation into this investigation than these stupid ass clowns did in the government did same as the clowns who did the investigation for the events of nov 22nd 1963 .:abgg2q.jpg::haha::laughing0301::laughing0301::laughing0301::laughing0301::laughing0301::rolleyes:

    Conspiracies are a great way to feel smarter than everyone else without actually being smarter.

    I can definitely see why some people find them appealing.

    I also think its comforting. For some people the idea of a degree of chaos, chance and uncertainty (you know, real life) is far more terrifying than the idea of some nefarious cabal that controls everything.

    As at least then someone would be controlling things. Rather than events just happening without some overarching authority at the wheel.

    Alas, life can be unfair. Life can chaotic and uncertain. And these simple truths are more than some can bear. So they imagine a conspiracy in which everything is organized and controlled......but in secret.

    With the conspiracies being little more than emotional binkies.
