And, so, we should take all of the "experts" climate change predictions of gloom and doom with a grain of salt. In all the hand-wringing and dire warnings about global warming (climate change), I have yet to see a serious discussion of why the Earth was much warmer at other times than at present during its history. Or why, without men roaming the Earth, the planet cooled to the point where ice fields a mile or more thick covered much of North America. Was it the result of a giant meteor? Maybe? Was it the result of volcanic activity? Maybe? Does anyone know with absolute certainty? No. Meteorologists have difficulty accurately predicting storms 2-3 days in advance. 20-50 years into the future? Not a chance.

Let's look at experts. Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was a mathematician and scientist. Newton has to be the greatest and most influential scientist who has ever lived. He laid the foundation for classical mechanics, and his genius transformed our understanding of science, particularly in the areas of physics, mathematics and astronomy. What's not widely known is that Newton spent most of his waking hours on alchemy; his experiments included trying to turn lead into gold. Though he wrote volumes on alchemy, after his death Britain's Royal Society deemed that they were "not fit to be printed."

Lord William Thomson Kelvin (1824-1907)...
