The National Aeronautic and Space Administration, NASA, of the USA has published some graphs, which show the differences of global temperatures in the during the last 100 years. The tendency is obvious. The Climate is Changing. And why shouldn’t it? Nothing is static in nature, everything is constantly changing. An so is the climate. Also, what could be regarded as freaks of nature such as the high temperatures in the norther hemisphere and the floods indicate that something is happening.

To deny the possibility of a Climate Change may be nice psychological mechanism to remain calm in a potentially dangerous situation, but it does not help if the danger really exist.

The question, whether the climate is changing because of the short sighted behavior of mankind or because of a natural cycle is not relevant. If it is a natural cycle might be even worse than if it is caused by mankind. The Climate throughout Geo-history is full of examples how the climate has been changing in every era of the earth.

Today humanity has come to a point where everyone of us has to decide if we let a possible possible Climate Change happen or not. And if we can’t stop the process of a changing climate, what can we do in order to mitigate it?

Except for the suggestions offered in Nesseq, like the TOTEM System, the Loan Guaranty Fund or the Ultra Light City Vehicles, where one is asked to act in a group, one can do a lot all by him/her self.

The key is to give up on the idea of abundance. The idea of abundance, on which our whole economic system relies, implies that there are no limits to growth. Economic growth that is. The underlying concept is, that the consumption of goods shouldn’t be tamed. This is in direct contradiction to the problem of the Climate Change. The production of every good needs energy, therefore every good which is consumed unnecessarily is a waste of energy.

The World Population Growth must also be taken into account. The more people will populate the earth the less resources the individual will have. Be it space or goods. The less every individual needs the more people can share the limited resources of earth!

The problem is whether society in a state of emergency will have the democratic freedoms we all strive to have! In a state of emergency it might be problematic.

    I really like and appreciate your blog post.Really looking forward to read more. Will read on…

  3. ppc marketing

    I agree with you totally. Please write more.

    I think it’s a conspiracy that not many people try to produce their own energy? I mean do oil companies stop progress to suit themselves?

      Hi there,
      I think it is not so much a conspiracy of the oil companies but rather a cultural prejudice. The oil companies do not have to worry about there profits. The oil is also needed for all kind of products which depend on oil. Be it plastic, fertilizer, medicine and paint, etc.
      It is totally senseless to burn the oil in engines in order to drive heavy cars at high speed. But this is what the consumer wants. Electric cars aren’t just as sexy as conventional cars.
      Admittedly, this does not explain the whole aspect. In the summer of 2008 the oil prices skyrocketed and the result, together with the banking crisis, was a financial crisis and the oil prices dropped again. Making alternative energy much too expensive.
      So, I’m sorry but I don’t have a ready answer to your question.
      Thanks for your comment,
      Max

    I see few comments with questions and with no answers? i see you don’t even bother to answer, so why should i comment and ask you ?? waste of time, right ????

    I will look for this info and answers somewhere else, thanks for the article anyway.

    Taika,

      Dear Taika,
      please feel free to visit my site or not. The reason I don’t answer all questions or statements made by my readers is a simple one. My website is just a hobby, or rather my calling, and I don’t earn money with it. Therefore I still have to work full time to earn my keeps and I also have to think about writing a post every other day. I try to clear most issues in the Memos I write.
      Thank you anyway,
      Max

        Your site is a community, people sharing ideas and commenting about things, agreeing and disagreeing and much more.

        With your attitude to your readers, i suggest you shut down the comments section and stop playing games with people how care you are to this world.

        Sorry it’s our fault that you need to think about writing a post every other day, If you keep thinking about that money is the only success you can get with a website, then i think you are losing what makes your site special and unique.

        Oh, by the way, you wrote “please feel free to visit my site or not”, i will go with NOT.

    This site is a walk-through for all the information you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Look here, and you’ll definitely find it.

    Hello there. Although I normally don’t comment on blogs, I thought I would today, only to thank you really! I’ve finally got the information I was seeking for (via your blog) on the 4th page of Google results! So now I’m all covered 🙂 Thanks again! Tommie

  10. Anna

    Come on ….. we both know these numbers are fake !!!!

    The most funny part is the year 1860 temperature, !!! oh i forgot NASA measured the temperature in 1860.

    Dr. Max, stop selling propagandas !!!!!

  11. Dr. George Claxy

    Hello Dr. Max,

    Thank you for Fiction side, its very … mmmm “entertainment”.

    Why not admit, that ALL of these records; are simply the result of statistical manipulations on the output of a certain set of thermometers; and that any connection between the result of that computation and the actual temperature of the earth is without any scientific foundation; it’s a fiction.

    And it’s a meaningless fiction since there isn’t any scientific relationship between the temperature at any earth location and the local flux of energy into or out of planet earth. Each different type of terrain results in different thermal processes, and there is no common link between energy flow, and local Temperature.

    Energy flow is a consequence of Temperature differences between locations; it is not simply related to the atual Temperature at any place; or at any time.

    Mr. Max, Most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.

    This is an advance since the TAR’s conclusion that “most of the observed warming over the last 50 years is likely to have been due to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations”. Discernible human influences now extend to other aspects of climate, including ocean warming, continental-average temperatures, temperature extremes and wind patterns.

    Don’t you agree ?

  13. Natalia

    Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level

  14. Alice

    The Earth has seen much more radical climate changes in the past, long before humans made the scene. All the hoopla over these global climate metrics approach mental masturbatory status.

  15. Andre

    Believe it or not, very little research has ever been funded to search for natural mechanisms of warming…it has simply been assumed that global warming is manmade. This assumption is rather easy for scientists since we do not have enough accurate global data for a long enough period of time to see whether there are natural warming mechanisms at work.
