Climate Change: Summary of Current Science

Submitted by Econophile on 12/12/2009

The following analysis was done by Cato scholar, Andrei Illarionov, formerly Vladimir Putin’s chief economic advisor. As an economist he studied the available literature and synthesized the current state of the scientific evidence on climate change and global warming. It is significant in that the “solutions” coming out of Copenhagen are really political in nature and not necessarily based on the best science or the best economics.

For the record, I believe in climate change and global warming, as the science suggests. The issue is the extent and impact of human behavior (“anthropogenic factors”). I think the scientific evidence presented by Illarionov and Cato, as well as the Competitive Enterprise Institute is pretty good.

I will also refer you to RealClimate.org which is run by four climatologists, and who have excellent resource materials. …

(And another post I saw today, I don’t remember where, that all the major governments around the world are preparing underground facilities. Do you know what book this is from (below)?)

12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way. 13 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

    Hi, I notice that you are discussing the throne of God. We have been led to believe by our ancestors that when Jesus was resurrected he went up to a throne in heaven. However I just read a fascinating book by the New Testament scholar Stephan Huller that in earliest Christianity that the original gospel writer (St. Mark) might have had a physical throne ON THIS EARTH in mind – one which originally sat in Alexandria and which he rediscovered in Venice – see the photos of the object in the Basilica di San Marco which Italian sailors stole from the Church of St. Mark in Alexandria along with the body of St. Mark in 828 AD – see photos of the throne here – http://www.therealmessiahbook.blogspot.com.

    The point of Huller’s book is that St. Mark was the first Pope and that Jesus ruled ‘on his right hand’ as he sat on this throne (it is a universally acknowledged – albeit ignored – fact that the title ‘Papa’ or Pope was originally associated with St. Mark rather than St. Peter and with Alexandria rather than Rome; the bishop of Rome only acquired the title after the fifth century).

    I was really fascinated by this book. It wasn’t anything like what I had been taught in Sunday school. It really made me think and learn about the language that Jesus and the original gospel writer (St. Mark) spoke.

    For instance in Hebrew or Aramaic (the language of Jesus) there would be no way to distinguish the concepts of ‘divine throne’ or ‘heavenly throne’ – i.e. it would be easy for white Europeans to get misled or confused (like the Gospels of Matthew and Luke speaking about ‘the kingdom of heaven’ and ‘God’ even though the Aramaic would be one and the same).

    It is an amazing book and here is some background information on the author http://www.stephanhuller.blogspot.com/

    Just thought I would pass this along

    Peace

      Thanks for the interesting comment, Jacob. I wish I had time to research this, but I don’t. For now, I am satisfied to know that this author wants to, “do away with the Acts of the Apostles and its stupid claim regarding the existence of an apostle named “Paul.” ” A position I disagree with.

      Does the frankish lineage go back to and through Merovee, I wonder?

      Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

  2. Hi, I notice that you are spamming people’s blogs promoting Stephan Huller’s idiotic book. I just read and picked apart his book and found it to be full of half-truths, obfuscations, poor reasoning, and insufficiently documented claims. A bunch of us are discussing Huller’s nonsense here:

    http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/showthread.php?t=130969

    The point of the thread is to expose Huller as the fraud that he is. Huller is a circus performer by trade, and we can believe that, given the sort of gymnastics he uses in the book.

    I was really digusted by his book. It wasn’t anything like what serious scholars have to offer, which I guess is why he can only get fringe nutcases like Robert Price and Robert Eisenman to endorse it. It really made me think Huller needs some psychotherapy and exposure to serious historical scholarship and critical thinking.

    It is a goofy book and it belongs in the trash can.

    I’m thinking of developing an iPhone application that will be found under the Finance category and I’m just curious of how many times it would be downloaded within a month’s time, but I don’t know where to look to find any statistics. The app will sell for $1.99. Based on this, about how many downloads per month do you think it will receive?
