COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; I came across this guy Richard Lindzen and it struck me he was asking people the same question about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. He concluded that very few people who appear to be scientists or educated can even answer the question but still profound to be experts on Global Warming. It is impossible to argue for Global Warming if you cannot even describe what is the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
Thank you for opening our minds.
REPLY: Yes you are absolutely correct. I assume you are referring to a comment I have made at WEC events about a major public corporation directed its Chief Financial Officer to meet with me after he lost probably 10% of the company’s funds on currency. I met with the CFO and of course, it was hostile at first. He had to acknowledge our track record but he rebutted that every single forecast for 20 years could have been coincidence or luck. When I saw it was really going nowhere but I sensed he was not a smart-ass or stupid, I asked him what was his background. He hesitated and lowered his voice to reply he went to school and had a degree in nuclear physics. I said great – “Let’s now look at the markets from the perspective of the Second Law of Thermodynamics!”
It may have taken him all of 15 seconds for his mouth to drop and out came the words – OMG, there has to be a cycle! I said absolutely!
This is the entire problem with the Global Warming crowd. They have bogus data only back to the second half of the 1800s and they have ZERO comprehension of the dynamics of the system. Then you have people like Al Gore preaching on a subject in which he has never even taken a course in school yet knows everything there is to know. Welcome to the new world order where these people have determined the best way to save the planet is to eliminate humans. They are working hard on trying to figure out how to accomplish that without standing trial for genocide. Just in case they do not understand what that word means the definition = the deliberate killing of a large group of people. In their case, anyone in the industrialized world.
