 NAMAZU, Former Japanese demigod now maritime Analysts and Dean of the NAMAZU School of Climatology

 Hello bipeds!  As you know if you have been following our previous threads on the climate change issues we deny being in "climate change denial" despite not taking our climatology lessons from Al Gore. Climates change that's what they do. What really worries us isn't that some measurable man caused changes may or may not be underway, what concerns us at NSC (Namazu School of Climatology)  is the paleontology and geological data that confirms that our global climate has changed in the past, very suddenly and very drastically due to natural events that we can't control. We've mentioned planetary orbit irregularities and meteor strikes, and volcanic activity. We recently came across some quotes attributed to Ian Rutherford Plimer an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne,  professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, and a director of several mineral exploration and mining companies. Professor Plimer has published 130 scientific papers, and six books on the earth sciences and edited the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF GEOLOGY. 

 We have to warn those of you who totally buy into the Al Gore school that Professor Plimer would definitely be considered a doubter of man caused climate change. We do not present his words here because we wish to support any argument pro or con concerning on going (or not) man caused climate change. As we have pointed out so often we believe that governments, industries, and individuals should be taking measures relative to building codes, food supply security, similar matters that consider the very real, low probability on any given day, but highly catastrophic event of naturally caused sudden drastic climate change. What we found interesting in Professor Plimer's analysis and figures is that the rate of volcanic activity the past few years has been comparatively high for modern times. We have no idea what level of Volcanic activity it would take to cause dramatic and sudden climate change but according to Professor Plimer's analysis the planet's atmosphere can absorb quite a bit more than we thought. The net result from our view point is that coupled with current analysis of meteors and comets in our vicinity , projected volcanic activity , predicted solar flare activity , and probability analysis of orbit irregularities we should have considerable time to start putting protective elements against dramatic and sudden climate change into coastal zone protection, flood control infrastructure, building codes, and food security.   History tells us the sudden dramatic climate change we should really fear will happen.  However, there doesn't appear to be an event horizon looming in the immediate future.

 We at NSC find the current media battle over man caused climate change immaterial. The kind of climate change that can wipe out the human species can happen over night and is caused by forces beyond human control. As I mentioned to my friends on the American religious right in my defense of my reemployment rights I am a personification of natural forces, a collective creation of 3,000 years of Japanese society's collective imagination. That they used the term "demigod" to describe me certainly doesn't mean that I had any supernatural powers. As the human race goes so go I. I really want you bipeds to achieve the wish of your fictional Dr.Spock...."live long and prosper". So lets look at what the professor had to say recently, but first in a spirit of full disclosure lets look at some thing of his resume'.

Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

Namazu: In this first statement the professor compares one recent volcanic eruption in Iceland for added carbon to how much carbon world efforts have removed recently. 

PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

NAMAZU: He then goes on to discuss carbon itself a bit; those with an emotional attachment to the Al Gore school may want to skip this part:

PLIMER: Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
I's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs ..... well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon.  

NAMAZU: So one wonders just how many events of this level of volcanic activity occur and how often. The Professor gives a very interesting hint.

PLIMER: And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.

NAMAZU: Of course we wondered if the Professor had ever analyzed volcanic activity contribution to "green house gases" over a period of geological time. As it happened he did

PLIMER: I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt.  Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt.  Pinatubo was active for over one year - think about it!!!!

NAMAZU: Of course we wondered if the professor had considered any other elements of climate change. We didn't have to search his public pronouncements long:

PLIMER: Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.< o>

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years.   And it happens every year.

NAMAZU: So do these opinions and assertions make Professor Plimer a climate change doubter? Is he actually anti Al Gore School? Truthfully we don't know. However we found the following in quotation marks in a document that appears to attribute the words to the professor. We can not confirm or deny that these are his actual words at this time, and we don't pretend to know the context in which they were first publicly uttered , if in fact they were.  We'll let our gentle readers be the judge if such pronouncements mark one as a "doubter", presently a politically incorrect position to hold. We really don't want to get into that debate, too much emotion, too little facts, and while we're arguing we could all be quick frozen like the woolly mammoths. But for what its worth here are what may be the Professor's public statement on the issue of man caused climate change:  

PLIMER: Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' anymore, but just 'Climate Change' - you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.
It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax... ...give the world a hug and have a nice day!"
