How Carbon Farming Can Help Save the Planet
. . . for the pathetic tinpot religion of global warming, and Socialism.
"The modern environmental movement has to date focused nearly all of its efforts on painting the bleakest possible portrait of the hot, crowded, and polluted future to which humanity has doomed itself. This pessimism has helped them eke out a tiny space in the national policy dialogue, but that relentless negativity has alienated the broader public from its cause. Diagnosing (and as too often seems to be the case, exaggerating those diagnoses) problems isn’t enough—you need to also be able to look for and identify solutions.
Greens might not be interested in solutions, but the rest of us sure are, and to that end there’s some good news: many of our best and brightest are already exploring promising avenues towards mitigating and adapting to climate change, and to feeding a growing global population in what we’re promised will be more extreme weather. Genetically modified foods are one example, and carbon farming is another. These aren’t the only ones, and they won’t “fix” things all by themselves, but they represent the most powerful force we have on our side: our ability as a species to think creatively about problems, and to solve them with innovative new solutions."
Mead uses a deft, and delicate hand with he environmentalist. I do not, they are Malthusian Luddite know nothings attempting to overthrow the modern human history in favor of dystopia. All of their "solutions" lead to poverty, starvation, and enslavement. You've read the books which describe what they want, A Brave New World, 1984, We, you've seen the movies, Brazil, Soylent Green, Silent Running. These do not represent where we are going, but where the environmentalists will steer us.
Mead is all in with the global warming fear mongering, although he remains rational, and seeks real, and rational solutions. Yet, where is the proof for the fear mongered extreme weather? Please, environmentalists, do provide us with that data. You have not because it does not exist. It exists only in the fever swamp minds of the global warming alarmists.
The Decline of Tornado Devastation
Sorry Global Warmists, But Extreme Weather Events Are Becoming Less Extreme
Severe Weather Drought: Tornadoes drop to a new all time record low, major hurricane absence is setting a new record every day
Extreme weather failing to follow 'global warming' predictions: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Droughts, Floods, Wildfires, all see no trend or declining trends
Finally, let's quickly address the fear mongering about our current climate, and its recent changes.

Click through and then double click on the chart, and optimize it in your web page so you can see the thick manilla colored band titled Holocene Thermal Optimum, and the thin manilla colored band titled Present Warm Period at the same time.
None of these graphs show anything which should cause concern. The Holocene Thermal Optimum was warmer than the Present Warm Period, and, generally, consistently warmer. The fear mongering today is driven by something other than science. It is driven by religion, worldview, and the desire to control people.
Environmentalists are really just Socialists wearing green jeans. Milton Friedman elaborates on the problems with Socialism.
