Warmth is Good; Cold is the Killer

For decades green extremists have been spreading doomsday forecasts of global warming.But where do we find the greatest abundance of life on land? Follow the equator around the globe the Amazon, the Congo, Kenya, Indonesia and New Guinea all places where it is warm and wet. And where is life such a struggle that few species live there? Go towards the poles - Siberia and the cold deserts of Antarctica and Greenland.

For decades green extremists have been spreading doomsday forecasts of global warming.

But where do we find the greatest abundance of life on land? Follow the equator around the globe the Amazon, the Congo, Kenya, Indonesia and New Guinea all places where it is warm and wet.

And where is life such a struggle that few species live there? Go towards the poles - Siberia and the cold deserts of Antarctica and Greenland.

Where do most tourists go in winter? Few go to Alaska or Iceland most head towards the warmth of the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Black Sea and Bali.

Which season is most welcomed? It is not the first frost, nor the first snowstorm, but the first cherry blossoms, the first robins, and the welcome green shoots of new spring pasture.

Land life multiplies in summer many mammals hibernate or die in winter.

Every nurseryman knows that plants grow best in a warm greenhouse with added carbon dioxide. Global warmth speeds up the life-supporting water and carbon cycles warming oceans expel the gases of life (carbon dioxide and water vapour) producing more clouds, more precipitation and more plant growth.

This is why the warm eras of the past are remembered as periods of plenty the cold eras are times of hunger, migrations and war.

Life on Earth has never been threatened by greenhouse warming. It is the sudden plunge into an ice age that we need to fear.

Green alarmists should venture from their cosy offices and coffee shops and celebrate the welcome warmth of our global greenhouse while it lasts.

Warmth is good.
