The article was going along good until of course THE NEW STUDY TYING IT INTO CLIMATE CHANGE. I guess CLIMATE CHANGE must have really started in 1861. I’ll have to email AL GORE and have him update his movie.
Climate change is real and it started billions of years before 1861. The lie is that humans cause it. The Left has done a propaganda job worthy of Orwell's Big Brother by morphing the brainless concept of anthropogenic global warming into the new code words Climate Change. Those two words now imply that humans -- specifically fossil fuel-using humans -- cause all climate catastrophes. Pure hogwash!
I studied college geology in the 1950s. I've read voluminously on the subject ever since and practice a profession that's an offspring of geology. I've never had the slightest doubt that the climate is in a constant state of change, sometimes catastrophic change. All you have to do is put those changes into the perspective of geological time.
I grew up hearing the phrase: "Everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it." Apparently Algore and his evil brain trust decided they could politicize it and make fortunes while herding the ignorant American sheeple into the World Socialism pen at the U.N. Ranch.
