After President Joe Biden entered the White House, he created a position that had never existed before in the history of the White House—”Climate Envoy,” and climate policy was elevated to a level of unprecedented importance by Biden and the forces behind him.
Why is climate policy so important to the leftist politicians? In recent years, the climate policies of the United States and European Union countries have all come from the same hypothesis, namely, “global warming.” Several years ago, global warming was almost a scientifically unquestionable conclusion; but in the past few years, the global warming hypothesis has quietly disappeared from various documents, slogans, and propaganda of government climate policies in those countries that advocated it before.
What’s wrong with the global warming hypothesis and what does its disappearance mean? If you try to analyze the past and present of the climate policies of various countries, you’ll come to understand why “global warming” has disappeared.
The Origin of the Global Warming Hypothesis
What exactly is global warming? Wikipedia explains it as follows:
“Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. Though there have been previous periods of climatic change, since the mid-20th century humans have had an unprecedented impact on Earth’s climate system and caused change on a global scale.”
Such wording indicates that the term “global warming” is not a definitive, scientifically indisputable conclusion. Therefore, it can only serve as a vague concept that some people choose to believe in. Moreover, no one can prove that it is definitely human activities that lead to global warming.
Now that we have noticed that this term is disappearing from government documents, it implies that the global warming hypothesis may not be well grounded.
