The Climate Changes Naturally.For thousands of years, people were frightened and misled by those who claim to be able to see the future.
The people were misled because they didn’t understand science.
A few people were smarter and they tried to show the truth about nature.
So the king stood and ordered the tide to stop.
But still some people continued to imagine all kinds of terrible disasters to frighten people.
And they imagine even more ways for the world to end.
Even today, the doomsayers will tell you that carbon dioxide will cause terrible storms, tidal waves, floods and droughts, leading to death and destruction.
Where have we heard this before?
Yes, even today, those who are afraid, want you to go without electricity, TVs, cars, phones, computers, lights, heaters, air coolers and hot water. They want to tell you what you can and what you can't have. They want to tell you what to do.
Today, we know better than to believe the doomsayers and the fortune tellers.
We know that we cannot control the weather or the climate, nor can we see the future.
We also know that carbon dioxide makes plants grow, which in turn, provides food and oxygen which keeps all animals and people alive.
When someone tries to tell you that they know what will happen in 100 or even just 10 years from now, you know that they are not talking science.
So, smile politely at them and continue enjoying the incredible beauty and variety of nature.
