Plastic, Recycling, Global Warming…Extinction Revolution….

It takes a lot for the British public to feel they have to make their voices heard and is not an everyday occurrence… I am seeing this again in the actions of the Extinction Rebellion the British public have had enough of successive governments inaction and are rebelling and making their voices heard…These are ordinary people, not radicals…Mum’s, Dad’s, grandparents, young people who are all concerned about the beautiful world we live in and the abuse which is allowed to rumble on unchecked…How health and wildlife are suffering and dying…But are we as the public getting all the facts…Not scaremongering facts backed up by science…

Which means, however, something is nagging at me… I never take something on face value…I do my research it is just me I like to know…I like proven facts which have been checked and presented to me by a man/women who know…

Also what scares me is from every TV, social media site, news programmes I am being TOLD there is a problem and Climate Change needs to be addressed and we see the governments as not actioning things speedily enough sometimes it is circumstances and logistics it really is… some things take time…Cannot happen overnight…

Also having a knee jerk response is not always the correct action to take…Things this important need to be thought through…Properly…

What do I know and what should we all know as throughout history there have always been changes in the climate and there has always been a cause…

The Ozone Layer, Global Cooling, Population Explosion and now Global Warming…

Extinction Revolution…Want YOU to get arrested…

What are your thoughts? Are you prepared to be arrested? What happens if I am arrested? Unless other factors come into play you would normally not receive a criminal record for a civil offence…However, all the facts need to come into this so it could come down to individual cases… YOU COULD THEN HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD…

For a young person...That could have a disastrous impact on future job applications…Many employers would not employ you if they thought you were going to cause disruption in the workplace with a criminal record for public disorder offences.

A Peaceful protest is ok…But a protest where once you have attached your self to something and you cannot change your mind…You will be arrested…I would have to be very sure of all my facts before I put myself in that position and it is not because I don’t think that we need to make changes and it is not because I don’t recycle and grow my own but do we have to prove our absolute conviction for something by being arrested?…

Is Global Warming as bad as we are being told? Just a question I am asking?

To make up my mind I need to know that the person or persons giving me the answers as I am not a scientist is giving me proven facts…

Scientists have numerous roles in society, all of which involve exercising curiosity in order to ask questions and seek answers about the universe. This involves using the scientific method to construct a testable question, make a prediction, perform tests and interpret the resulting data… Sometimes these tests can take years and if the result after this time is not proven then that theory is disproved…It happens…Not all theories work or can be proven to be correct…So a scientist comes up with another theory and the tests begin again…

This was the case with Fats…When a scientist stated that fats were not as harmful as previously thought…Now this theory had been used as a public HEALTH guideline…Facts when if do a bit of research has been known for years so why have changes to health guidelines taken so long? Much is down to politicians and the bits they choose to use…

Science is Science and Politicians are politicians…Politicians should not be choosing which bits of the science they should be using and scientists need to stand up and be counted…If their findings are being either diluted or misrepresented.

How do WE educate ourselves as time and time again over the years it has been proven that we have been deliberately lied to and mislead by politicians, manufacturers and public bodies, charities for their own gain…

We need to educate ourselves …We need to have healthy scepticism…We need to know if Climate Change is really as bad as we are led to believe… All these think tanks and UN bodies which we all take as the Climate Bible is debatable at the very least …

This video is a long one but it raised and confirmed many points for me…To say I WAS SHOCKED would not be true as I am used to finding out that we the public have been deceived yet again…What still shocks me is that so many still do not do their own research….

So much so that I am questioning the Extinction Revolution …If I could be sure that every person who was demonstrating had conducted their own research and knew exactly who the organisers were and whether or not they were affiliated or working for any other organisations I would be happier…

This video by Windows of the World is interesting as it mentions points which investigative journalist Donna Laframboise raised in the video above and had concerns about and this is much more recent…

When I read about fiddling with temperatures…I get scared…Because I don’t know who to believe …I don’t know what is the truth… I am really worried as to why there is so much disparity…I know there is natural climate change …It seems that in some places changes are quite drastic BUT is it the norm over the years and centuries …How much of this can be laid at man’s door?

Do you think that human generation of CO2 emissions significantly contribute to what we are seeing?

But there are so many assumptions being made and much of the information we are being fed is flawed…

I just don’t know any more…Do you?

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

    If you look up Donna la Framboise on YouTube you will find postings of her talking to fossil-fuel funded/friendly bodies around the world such as:

    Institute of Public Affairs Melbourne:

    European Climate and Energy Institute:

    Friends of Science:

    Global Warming Foundation:

    I don’t think you will find postings of her talking to serious scientific gatherings.

    This is enough for me to dismiss any claims she might make to independence or objectivity.

    You can look up these bodies, and Donna la Framboise on the Desmog website.

    Thank you, Carol, for your common sense. I am too wondering about all the things that extinction revolution are behind or where suddenly, to me, they came from. I joined the newsletter, but have never been on any rallies, I can’t walk far, my physical health is not good but I can sign petitions. I have saved the videos to watch later. Research is paramount before even someone opens their mouth about anything that concerns us today. I was slightly worried that they weren’t tackling plastics and such too. xxx

      I am so sorry your physical health is not good, Adele…The video shocked me Adele and I was told about adiet the othe rday by one of my followers..I have had a look and I do need to read it properly but I was again appaled as this diet is for the American people to address oesity etc…If you watch that video the same has happened with research for this( I can ) give you the link if you want it… I am appalled at such deceit and want to deceive for gain..I really do not like how the world is shaping up nothing is as it seems. Every time I research something I come up with discrepancies ..What is being hidden form us and why I am beginning to wonder xxx

    Terrific post as always…regardless of what the cause is, the point is that we must acknowledge that there has been a change in the climate, and if we don’t work together to determine what negative impact it will have, we won’t be able to fix the problem – and it’s not political its environmental…it’s not about blaming, it’s about “changing”…will it happen? I think it will take an environmental catastrophe to wake everyone up…

      Thank you, John and yes I acknowledge there has been chnage in the climate and something needs to be done. It is just the sheer scale and we don’t know the truth of that. Would it make a difference i think mabe you are correct and it will take a environmental catastrophe …..

    I think that it is always good to question the legitimacy of things we are told. I’m not one who tends to be into conspiracy theories, but there have certainly been past occasions where something was treated as gospel that was later to be determined a myth. That being said, I am a believer in climate change. All of the models I’ve seen seem to support that concept. Nothing wrong with trying to get facts to see if something is real though, Carol.

      I think so, Pete…I was just disturbed by some of the findings …I wish there was more honesty in the world and not so much deceit…Thank you for your comment 🙂
