According to the history books Cnut the Great became King of England in 1016 AD.
Cnut the Great (c. 995 – 1035), also known as Canute – whose father was Sweyn Forkbeard (which gave him the patronym Sweynsson, Old Norse: Sveinsson) – was King of Denmark, England and Norway; together often referred to as the North Sea Empire.
Cnut the Great is famously remembered for knowing he had no control over the elements.
The story of King Canute and the tide is an apocryphal anecdote illustrating the piety or humility of King Canute the Great, recorded in the 12th century by Henry of Huntingdon.
In the story, Canute demonstrates to his flattering courtiers that he has no control over the elements (the incoming tide), explaining that secular power is vain compared to the supreme power of God.
The episode is frequently alluded to in contexts where the futility of “trying to stop the tide” of an inexorable event is pointed out, but usually misrepresenting Canute as believing he had supernatural powers, when Huntingdon’s story in fact relates the opposite.
Nowadays, the Great Cnuts of Climate believe humans influence the elements.
In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report concluded that “It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.”
The largest human influence has been the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.
Furthermore, the Great Cnuts of Climate believe they can control the elements.
Climate change mitigation consists of actions to limit the magnitude or rate of long-term climate change.
Mitigation policies can substantially reduce the risks associated with human-induced global warming.
The ultimate objective of the UNFCCC is to stabilize atmospheric concentrations of GHGs at a level that would prevent dangerous human interference of the climate system.
Unfortunately, the Great Cnuts of Climate have emerged from the same fetid swamp of experts, corporations, lobby groups, NGOs and politicians that have unleashed such stunningly lucrative failures as the War on Drugs and the Global War on Terrorism.
The War on Drugs is an American term usually applied to the United States government’s campaign of prohibition of drugs, military aid, and military intervention, with the stated aim being to reduce the illegal drug trade.
This initiative includes a set of drug policies that are intended to discourage the production, distribution, and consumption of psychoactive drugs that the participating governments and the UN have made illegal.
The War on Terror (WoT), also known as the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT), is a metaphor of war referring to the international military campaign that was launched by the U.S. government after the September 11 attacks in the U.S. in 2001.
Clearly, it’s totally absurd to believe any good can come from letting these creatures from the fetid swamp launch [at the taxpayers expense] a Global War on Climate Change.
The only thing more absurd than blaming humans for “climate change” is assuming politicians can stop it from changing.
Do You Really Think Politicians Can Stop Climate Change?
Martin Armstrong – 27 Oct 2017
Personally, I have more faith in Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment than the creatures from the fetid swamp.
I was born in Abilene, Taylor County, Texas, and at the age of fourteen I took my first trip up the trail and followed the life of a Cow-boy for eleven years.
After the “ round-up ” in the Spring of 1879 I started with some of my father’s best friends to the Moki, Pueblos at Wolpi, Arizona, to witness the snake dance which takes place once in two years ; there I became acquainted with the medicine man of the Moki tribe, and as he liked the looks of my Colt’s revolver and asked me to show him how it would shoot, I gave him an exhibition of my fancy shooting, which pleased him very much ; he then asked me how I would like to stay there and live with him, I told him I would stay until after the snake dance.
After my friends and I witnessed the snake dance, they returned to Texas, and I was so much pleased with the dance I decided to remain with them and see the dance again.
I lived with the Moki tribe two years and five months, and during that time I learned their language and dances and the secret of making their medicines.
The medicine that interested me most, was their Snake Oil Medicine as they call it.
It is used for rheumatism, contracted cords and all aches and pains.
As I was thought a great deal of by the medicine man he gave me the secret of making the Snake Oil Medicine, which is now named Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment.
Snake Oil is not a new discovery, it has been in use by the Moki’s and other Indian tribes for many generations, and I have made an improvement on the original formula.
