Posted on 11/28/2018 12:37:51 AM PST by Tilting
There is a lot more to Climate Change than the dire predictions that we will be eating each other by now. The Sahara Desert was once lush and green. Then the weather systems shifted and the once fertile land turns to desert. The Sphinx is believed to have the face of Khafra of the 4th dynasty during the Old Kingdom which was carved perhaps around 2500BC. Some believe that the Sphinx predates the Egyptians and was actually a lion because there appear to be what some claim are water erosion marks. If true, then the original Sphinx may have existed even as far back as 10,000BC when a Lion would have faced the constellation, Leo. We do know that the Sahara was lush and tropical perhaps as late as 6,000 years ago. Curiously, this is about the length of recorded history. The stories of Noah seem to predate this period of recorded history and might have been linked to dramatic climate change. The story of Noah was even celebrated in Anatolia (modern Turkey) on the coinage of the Roman Empire.
The weather has been changing in the desert. It is now in bloom once again. Indeed, there have been recent discoveries which confirm that the Arabian Peninsula was once a lush place. Tuthmosis IV was the 8th Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt, who ruled in approximately the 14th century BC. The dream Tuthmosis IV took place when he was a prince. He dreamt that he stopped to rest in the shadow of the Sphinx during a hunting expedition in the desert. While asleep, the Sphinx spoke to him, saying that he would become king if he cleared away the sand that all but buried the Sphinx. When he became king, Tuthmosis IV cleared the sand and erected a stele that tells the story of his dream.
There have been elephant tusks discovered and scientists have also uncovered 10,000 ancient lake and river beds across the Arabian Peninsula. All of this confirms that the climate was very different. What we do know is that the tropical belt has been moving northward once again. It was previously over the Sahara about 6,000 years ago. There are also cave drawings showing abundant wildlife in the Sahara.
The question that arises is that the climate change we are witnessing is certainly not caused by humans. It has happened before many times. It is getting colder in the northern regions and what was desert is starting to bloom.
What we do know is that Northern Africa was invaded by the Sea People who were probably Greeks forced to flee because of Climate Change. Perhaps we are witnessing similar events over the next 20 years of the dryer and colder weather in the north which compels many to flee to the south.
A working link to the article...
Thanks for catching that. I’ll see if a moderator can fix it for me.
Also all over the world are massive underground tunnels and living areas that housed people from harm.
What was the danger?
guaranteed to cause some heads to explode:
28 Nov: AFP: Poland names coal companies partners for COP24 climate talks
Poland on Tuesday named the EU’s largest producer of high-quality coking coal among several coal-sector companies that it chose to partner with the UN’s COP 24 global climate summit opening this weekend in the southern coal city of Katowice.
Polish Environment minister Henryk Kowalczyk told reporters in Warsaw that the state-owned JWS company along with coal-based energy companies PGE and Tauron were chosen as partners for the global talks aimed at reducing global warming through cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
Poland’s PZU insurance giant, its PKO BP bank and the PGNiG natural gas company are also sponsors. All six companies are state-owned...
Relying primarily on coal for some 80 percent of its energy...
“....the Sahara was once lush and tropical....”
Did global climate change cause the continents to drift?
Enviro-Nazis say, “Yes! And it’s Trump’s fault!”
And then the weather shifted and all became a desert...
No. It got colder, there came less precipitation (rain) and the plants died.
The earth has been steadily cooling for the last 10,000 years, turning North Africa into a desert.
Thats why the global warmers are nut cases. If the temperatures went up up just a little bit, and the CO2 was up just a little bit, the Sahara could be restored to a lush equatorial jungle.
We need to get to very simple terms so that the numskulls understand: Heat is GOOD, cold is BAD, you Jane, me Tarzan.
Unfortunately this isn’t what’s being taught to the kids at the indoctrination centers.
can you believe The Guardian has provided a platform for John Podesta??? what a joke:
28 Nov: Guardian: As a warming world wreaks havoc, Trump wages war on climate science
by John Podesta
The US administrations politicization of science has led to big budget cuts for data and analysis. Others must fill the gap
The evidence of climate change is all around us, from melting Alaskan permafrost to wildfires in Sweden, from the brutal European heatwave to the devastating 2017 and 2018 hurricane seasons, which have claimed thousands of lives and caused billions of dollars in damage in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and North Carolina. In recent weeks, the worst wildfires in California history have wiped entire towns off the map and killed scores of people. The recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warning of mass wildfires, superstorms, food shortages and dying coral reefs by 2040 was a cry for immediate action...
If the Trump administration fails to fund the satellites, climate models, Arctic flights and other scientific investments needed to produce and interpret vital climate and energy data, other champions, including European agencies and governments, will need to step up to fill in any data, monitoring and research gaps that could set back our understanding of climate change and its impacts.
Atmospheric CO2 is a ^Lagging Indicator^ of temperature change. When the Earth warms, the oceans release CO2, as it cools, the oceans sequester CO2.
That’s why the IPCC “normalized” the graphs of T and CO2 (ppm) by overlaying at the peaks and valleys and not by time.
>>Also all over the world are massive underground tunnels and living areas that housed people from harm. What was the danger?
I remember sitting in one of those indoctrination centers in the mid-70's and being told CO2 was causing global cooling.
Well the idiots did their job too well.
Western civilization is in danger of being overrun by the eastern hordes because our birthrates have fallen below replacement levels.
Add to that our political leaders have open the gates to the Huns.
BUT...what if it's really global cooling? Do we then do the OPPOSITE of all the things on those lists? If that's the case, I'm looking forward to buying a big-block V8 and driving around for fun again.
Absolutely. You can't grow wheat when Kansas is under half a mile of glacier.
The answer for global cooling is to punitively increase taxes, decrease or ban fossil fuel usage, herd everyone into the cities and leave most of the world as a temple to Gaia.
Same as for global warming, cosmic radiation, sun storms, blizzards, hurricanes etc etc etc.
Doesn’t matter what the problem is, the socialists have only one solution.
Thanks stockpirate. A little tempted to ping GGG.
Those pharaohs must have blown a lot of hot air in governing their peeps.
