97% of Scientists Confirm Man-made Climate Change?

I just today saw a video of Leonardo di Caprio once again repeating that 97% of scientists say that human beings are causing global climate change.  I want to discuss how exactly that figure of 97 % was determined, because the criteria by which the author of the study being referenced used to determine whether a scientist affirms man-made climate change is completely fraudulent, deceptive, and dishonest.

The author of the 97% study looked at all the peer-reviewed scientific literature referencing whether human beings are causing climate change.  If a scientist even implied that we might be changing the climate at all, he included that scientist as affirming man-made climate change.  There were a lot of scientists who said we might be having some affect on climate, but the author of the study did not take into account how much effect.  This author just lumped all the scientists who even allowed for some possible climate change as if they all believed that human activity is going to cause global catastrophe as the alarmists like di Caprio, Al Gore and others proclaim.

I watched a video of a scientist who said that he wrote that human beings might possibly cause some change in climate, but even if it were so, it would not be very much at all, and he was included as belonging to the 97% of scientists who say that man-made climate change as well.  How many other scientists who believe it is possible that we might be causing a negligible amount of climate change were included in this figure of 97%.  Someone should do a study on this.  So when someone says to you that 97% of scientists say that human beings are causing climate change, how many of those scientists only said it is possible, or that if it is happening, it is negligible?  How many scientists included in that number actually stated that human beings are going to cause the end of the world as we know it because of Co2 emissions, etc?  The study which originated this 97% figure is dishonest.  Most of these climate change statistics we have do not come to us with a description of the method by which the figures were calculated, or the computer models which they used to derive that date.  When you actually investigate how these numbers were calculated, much fraud is brought to the surface, and for me, at least, and many others who do not buy into the chicken little hysteria behind these claims, the people promoting these scares, more and more lose their credibility as people who are basing their message on science and reason, and moreso on political and economic ideologies and anti-human philosophical biases and agendas.

I personally believe that the ideology behind the man-made climate change and hysteria is that of anti-human genocidal population reduction.  These people believe that there are too many human beings on the planet and that we need to vastly reduce both the number of people living on the planet and the amount of energy and resources we each use.  This will require a global government dictatorship to ration how much energy people are allowed to use and what technologies can be used to produce it.  The whole global warming, climate change hysteria is a vehicle for arguing that we need some kind of global authority to dictate to the world how much energy and resources people can use.  Not all environmentalists are aware of this agenda.  Some are, and openly support such measures.  But this is the agenda and ideology behind environmentalism and global warming/climate change hysterics.  If I were to believe that these climate change and global warming warnings were true, I would openly support genocide and population reduction measures as well as a global dictatorship to tell everyone throughout the world what kind and amount of energy, technology, and resources they would be allowed to use.  If man made global warming and climate change is real, and we have a moral obligation to stop it, then genocide, global dictatorship, and population reduction measures (i.e. killing lots of people), would be completely moral and justified measures to respond to the threat to the planet.  So if you believe in global warming and man-made climate change, just cut through the bullshit and admit that we need to kill lots of people, put the people under a global energy dictatorship, and reduce the standard of living for everyone who isn't part of said dictatorship.  Because if the global warming, anthropogenic climate change warnings and temper tantrums are true, those are the only means by which you are going to stop such threats to our planet.

If global warming and man-made climate change are real and need to be stopped, this would justify and necessitate global genocide and dictatorship, and since I believe genocide and dictatorship are immoral, I eventually conclude that global warming and man-made climate change are lies, for truth can never justify or necessitate immorality, evil, or sin by us in order to solve it.

From Academics to Real World Work Skills Education

I believe there needs to be a shift in what kind of things we seek to learn in our educations.  Too much focus is made on academics, that bear little use in the world of making a living.  I recently have signed up for a job skills training program for a store chain which teaches about the various parts of the day to day functioning of working in a store.  Now, while academic education is great and all, for most people who are graduating with degrees from colleges, this type of education is almost worthless in terms of actually preparing one to work in an actual job.  We tell young people to go to college and get an academic degree far too much.  While this may be a good path for some, it probably is not the best path for the majority of people looking to learn real life job applicable skills and knowledge.

We need to take a hard look as a society and investigate what kind of businesses, institutions, companies, services, and ventures will be needed in the near future and create educational opportunities based on what those required tasks will need in terms of what sort of skills, knowledge, processes and concepts workers, managers, entrepreneurs, etc. will have to be equipped with.  We should gear our educational policies and institutions to providing education necessary for instilling work seeking people with these skill sets, etc.  There is too much focus on telling everyone to go to a 4 year college, possibly go to graduate school etc, in hopes it will lead to better job prospects.  There are so many jobs that not only do not require an academic traditional college degree, but are in fact utterly useless for performing the tasks of that job.  And why keep telling young people to go into massive debt for a degree that gives them no experience, skills, or knowledge that actually applies to getting a job, when they could get an education in a trade, or in a certain business field, etc?

We need more education in trades, more education in sales and business, in many other kinds of jobs that actually exist.  If a young person wants to work in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields, then going to a 4 year college or graduate school makes sense.  But for many other degrees, the academics are not really useful for any real jobs.  We need to create and organize more trade or practical job training programs, to teach the ins and outs of real job creating organizations, so that people actually have some experience and training that applies to actual aspects of real jobs.  Enough of the massive student debt bubble which is going to burst eventually when more and more students with four year degrees can't find actual jobs in order to pay of their debt.

I saw a video someone posted on Facebook regarding this subject, where Mike Rowe (I believe that was his name) was talking about the fact that most of the required jobs that will need to be created will be in the trades, and that instead of herding everyone into massive debt in order to go to academic colleges where they are not given any skills that will help them get and maintain a remunerative job, we should encourage more education in trades.  We need more trade schools, we need more educational programs and institutions which teach real job skills and give opportunities to practice those skills.

Another thing is we need more education in entrepreneurship.  This idea I get from reading the financial education books of the "Rich Dad" series by Robert Kiyosaki.  We need more people to create businesses which create lots of jobs.  There is little education about how money works, and how to create businesses which create jobs.  I recommend his books also.

But we need to educate people in skills and experience that actually will help them make livings at jobs that actually will exist.  Jobs in the trades need to be more emphasized, because a lot of the jobs that will be created are in these fields.  Not everyone needs or should pursue expensive 4 years or more college degrees which serve no useful purpose most of the time in actually preparing someone to work at a real job or in creating a business that creates work.  Except for STEM education, and certain other fields, going to traditional academic college makes no sense for a lot of people.

I would love to hear other people's thoughts on this subject.
