Capability and Understanding

Nature, September 13, 2007 page 198: An article titled –Coupling of surface temperature and atmospheric temperature CO2 concentrations during the Paleozoic era – This article states, “Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations seem to have been several times modern levels during much of the Paleozoic era (543-248 million years ago),…” Several times higher is an understatement. The article points out that the CO2 levels were 12 to 17 times higher, which is not several times higher, it is an order of magnitude higher.

The authors maybe a politely telling the scientific community that, it obviously does not know as much as it thinks it knows about global temperature. How many times have we heard over the past few years that today’s global temperature is higher than it has ever been in the past? This discrepancy about past global temperature has been pointed out several times on this web site. The article goes on to say, “…that the magnitude of temperature variability throughout this period was small, suggesting that global climate may be independent of variations in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.” Blasphemy! The scientists who let their environmental religion effect their conclusions are going to be quite upset.

The bottom line is that humans have increased their knowledge but not their understanding. Lincoln once said, “A person who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool, shun him.” Humans must understand that the earth has been changing for billions years. That is the way the universe works. Change is necessary; humans cannot stop change from occurring. We do not know enough about how the world works to mess with the machinery. We have the capability of impacting the world but not the understanding necessary to predict the outcome of our impact. The best we can do is to position ourselves to survive the change.

The problem the planet is facing today is not industrialization but population. There are 3 times more humans on the planet than the planet can support. Consider what would happen to pollution if 2/3 of the cars were off the road, 2/3 fewer products were made, 2/3 fewer mouths to feed, and 2/3 fewer homes being built. Nobody harvests timber for the fun of it. It is done because somebody needs the lumber to build a place to live.
