What's next? Stop driving your car or an asteroid will strike the earth?
No matter how absurd, the scaremongering to protect the green money machine will not stop!
The left wing Guardian newspaper in Great Britain is ground zero for global warming propaganda. So, it's no surprise that they published the latest example of the global warming scaremongering. But seriously, claiming that man made CO2 emissions will cause volcanoes and catastrophic earthquakes is a new low especially considering how every spectacular global warming scare has been exposed as a fraud and a hoax.
The author, Bill McGuire is professor of geophysical and climate hazards at University College London, hopes to sell copies of his book: "Waking the Giant: How a Changing Climate Triggers Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Volcanoes." The Guardian article is a condensed version of his claim.
In short, McGuire buys the clearly disproven theory that man made CO2 emissions will dramatically warm the planet. The Warmers predictions that global temperature would rise dramatically over the last 20 years have been proven false by observation of actual temperatures. But that hasn't stopped the Warmers and McGuire insists that despite a leveling off of temperature increases we are in for a rise of "several degrees" in global temperature.
Should that happen, McGuire suggest that melting glaciers in Greenland, Alaska and elsewhere will lighten the load on the earth's crust. Lifting such enormous weight will release the pressure holding faults in the crust from moving and thus, cause earthquakes and volcanoes.
The problem with McGuire's theory is that the ice isn't melting at anything like the rate needed to release the weight from the frozen faults. A while back I linked to news about the results from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite. GRACE was launched in 2002 and it's job was to survey global ice and measure it's weight, or gravity. The is one of those instruments that the Warmers insisted would prove the theory of global warming. But like so many other advanced instruments GRACE showed that the loss of ice was nothing like the doom and gloom predictions.
But the fact that there is no observable evidence to support McGuire's fantastic claim won't matter. There is too much money at stake and the Warmers know that they have to get their "green" quick before the rest of their scaremongering facade collapses.
