Stacking Up “Scientific Consensus” For Policies

Back in the early to late 70’s scientific consensus was that of the earth was cooling down, so much in fact, they believed a return of some sort of ice-age. Until the 80’s came along where man-made climate change became the prevailing viewpoint among the so-called, “scientific consensus” and anyone who questioned it, were in denial in fact some have suggested it’s the same as being a holocaust denier or someone who just doesn’t believe in science.

There is a similarity between how evolution which used to be questioned within the framework until 1998, where it was declared a declaration of fact that was beyond question, and a new focus was put in place that involved rescuing explanations from falsifications which often times happens in the framework of evolution.

The belief in man-made climate change has a more profound effect on economies on various governments including the United States than does many research projects on evolution. Computer models without knowing an array of compensating factors became a form of popular evidence for man-made climate changes during the 80’s and it still is, today! Computer models are based on assumptions about the present or future reality, but is absolutely not reality itself.

Scientific Consensus and critics alike do agree that the earth’s temperature hit a peak in 1998, and has not shown any warming trend in the last 15 years or so. In temperate pattern in the last 50 years has been lower than what the computer models had predicted yet the UN climate chief continues to sound the alarm, claiming that the earth is running out of time! Just like in evolution when an assumption is falsified, they go into rescuing mode which sounds better in science fiction than reality.

Like the UN climate chief, Nature News continues to sound the alarm by calling this trend “a pause” and then tries to explain why the earth warming trend has pulled back. Science Daily is even alarmed by the impact the pause will have on public opinion which says is lacking because they believe the public is greedy…So they propose strategic conversations or in other words re-education camps. Other supporters have turned their focus elsewhere from the data to the skeptics themselves and are trying to demonize them in particular.

Like evolution, governments take sides by creating mandates that are agreement with man-made climate change or fund researchers that only agree with one side thus stacking  “scientific consensus” with a particular viewpoint.

“Would you rather have €40 (about $55 US) or save the climate? When the question is put in such stark terms, the common sense answer is obviously: “stop climate change!” After all, we are well-informed individuals who act for the common good and, more particularly, for the good of future generations. Or at least that’s how we like to think of ourselves.”

They like to think of their selves as rulers over the weather, but in reality there has been historical climate change long before the industrial era. It’s not denying science at all, this pause could last for years to come or not, but how do they know it’s man-made rather than historical? They have yet to define the difference. One thing is for sure man cannot control the weather, the earth does go through warming and cooling trends just like it did before the industrial era as well in the seventies and eighties till the present.

Amazing Electric Cables Discovered On The Ocean floor

There was a detection of electric currents on the bottom of the ocean floor which was discovered a few years ago by researchers but they didn’t know at the time where it was coming from until now.

In Nature

“Marine sediments become anoxic because oxygen is consumed by microbial processes at the surface. Without available oxygen the microorganisms living below the surface are supposed to depend on energetically less favourable, anaerobic processes.”

“Recently, however, electric currents have been found to directly connect oxygen reduction at the surface with sulphide oxidation in the subsurface, even when oxygen and sulphide are separated by more than 1 cm. Half of the sediment oxygen consumption can be driven by electrons transported from below.”

“The spatial separation of oxidation and reduction processes invokes steep pH gradients leading to distinct dissolutions and precipitations of minerals. Microbial activity apparently drives the electrochemical half-reactions and the establishment of electron-conducting structures through the sediment.”

Researchers from Denmark along with American researchers determined that the seafloor contains an array of “live wires” which may play an essential role in ocean ecology, if not the ecology of the whole biosphere! These “live wires” are built by bacterial colonies of “novel members of the deltaproteobacterial family Desulfobulbaceae” and is something that no researcher or anyone else for that matter have imagined that it even existed!

In science daily, it tells about the reactions of researchers… “On the one hand, it is still very unreal and fantastic. On the other hand, it is also very tangible,” said Professor at Aarhus University, Lars Peter Nielsen.

Another interesting thing discovered with these remarkable and well designed microbes is the fact they are 1/100 the diameter of the human hair and even being that small, they have an elaborate structure along with about 17 channels down their exteriors that match up from cell to cell, forming a continuous protective sheath, like insulation! If the bacteria were the size of humans, their signals would be traveling 12 miles long. The cables are not built for durability rather they break pretty easily, but these cables are alive and can regenerate and grow back themselves unlike man-made cables.

Just a teaspoon of the ocean’s floor contains a half mile of these living cables. Moreover, the researchers found these in sediments from widely distributed samples, suggesting that much of the planet conducts electricity from the anoxic layer to the oxic layer.  The electrical charge circuit is completed by ions in seawater, producing water in the process.  This has led the researchers to speculate on their role in planetary ecology.

More questions were being asked in the paper, along with giving credit to evolution for creating electrical engineers…

“Bacterial micro-cables represent a hitherto unknown lifestyle, which immediately raises many intriguing questions for further research: How are energy conservation and growth allocated among the cells? What is their genetic and metabolic diversity? How are filament division and dispersal controlled? What is the molecular and electronic basis of the electron transport? How widespread are they in nature? Transmission improvement and control of electric currents have been major drivers for electronic innovation. It appears that biological evolution has worked successfully in the same direction.”

Creativity is the idea while innovation is what brings the idea to life, are the researchers suggesting this was all about evolution’s idea? Also, the bacteria appears not only to exist for their own sakes, but they also exist to enable nutrient cycles that affect the whole biosphere!  A question comes to mind, how would the first organisms survive without them? How did they form such elaborate structures?  Evolutionists can’t just wave their hands up in the air and say they “evolved to” conduct electricity more effectively by transmitting electrons through their interiors, and then “evolved to” add insulating sheaths for “transmission improvement.” This discovery doesn’t help the story of evolution at all rather it increases its complexity to new heights. The idea of remarkable engineering in nature along with innovation comes from an intelligent mind, who created all things. We live in an amazing period of time where these discoveries are being made!
