Adapted from “Our Fragile Planet” by Dr. Walter E. Williams at page 295 of his 2015 book. American Contempt for Liberty:
The earth is not fragile. Climate change is a part of the history of our earth, and much more dramatic change has taken place in our human past than is taking place now.
In 1883 the volcano Krakatoa in Indonesia erupted. That volcanic eruption had the force of 200 megatons of TNT. That is the equivalent of 13300 15-kiloton atomic bombs, like those that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.
In 1815 we saw the Tambora volcanic eruption, also in Indonesia. It is the largest known volcanic eruption. It blocked sunlight so that 1816 became known as the
“Year Without a Summer.”
Crop failures and livestock death followed in much of the Northern Hemisphere and caused the worst famine of the nineteenth century.
A 535 AD eruption of Krakatoa came with such force that it blotted out much of the light and heat of the sun for eighteen months. It is said to have led to the Dark Ages.
Three volcanic eruptions: Indonesia (1883); Alaska (1912); and Iceland (1947) are estimated by geophysicists to have spewed more carbon dioxide and sulfer dioxide in to the atmosphere than all of mankind’s activities in our entire history. The earth survived.
Our planet is not fragile. Any CO2 contribution by mankind is so small that it cannot be and never has been measured. All of the apocalyptic predictions from climate changes are guesses, estimates, only. 31,000 scientists have signed a petition stating that they do not believe in manmade climate change as a significant issue.
Of the IPPC signatures that are so famous, over 20% were forged. IPPC would not remove those signatures without a lawsuit, which was filed.
This climate change frenzy is the work of politicians who want to use that issue to control us. They have no other motive, and no other reason for their alarmist and unjustified actions.

THIS SHOULD LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD.
INHALE DEEPLY, PLEASE!

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.
Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50p light bulbs with £5 light bulbs ….. well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.
I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.
Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it!!!!
Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.
Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.
Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’ – you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past few years and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.
And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
But, hey, relax……give the world a hug and have a nice day!”
