Who among us World Wide Web participants will ever do more than perhaps fantasize about realizing our primal memories? And yet, the Left pretends to demonize capitalism and industrial man.
How far back into the past does the Left wish to march humanity? The Left seems very comfortable with consigning the developing and Third World to an energy-deprived future. The most amazing thing is that some refuse to admit global warming has become a Left vs. right issue. Does anyone still believe it is about science?
Not so fast. Science is not a democracy. The head count fallacy has been recognized as irrational since Aristotle. Even if science were a democracy, for every scientist who supports the notion of human-caused global warming, there are more than ten who consider that notion pure vanity, and they have made their names public…
That is not science, but it has been the official line ever since. No science, just bureaucratic conclusions contrary to science, an excuse for a brand new tax… Both Galileo and Einstein were famous deniers of centuries-old theories. They were right. The consensus was wrong…
As Dr. John Christy told us just last week, having lived among the world’s poor, their lives there are brutal and short. Those who kick the poor in the teeth while pretending to soak the rich do not merit the votes from either. ~Mr. Linder (Hearing On Protecting Lower-Income Families While Fighting Global Warming, hursday, March 12, 2009, U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Ways and Means, Subcommittee on Income Security and Family Support, Washington, D.C.)
Energy poverty is the problem not the solution. The poor need more energy not less. It is better for everyone to strive for a better life and the Left cannot stop it nor should it.
Higher density sources of fuel such as coal and natural gas utilized in centrally-produced power stations actually improve the environmental footprint of the poorest nations while at the same time lifting people from the scourge of poverty… Developing countries in Asia already burn more than twice the coal that North America does, and that discrepancy will continue to expand… So, downward adjustments to North American coal use will have virtually no effect on global CO2 emissions (or the climate), no matter how sensitive one thinks the climate system might be to the extra CO2 we are putting back into the atmosphere. ~Dr. John Christy (August 2012)
The infringement on individual liberty in today’s society has become palpable and that is what liberal fascism is all about. Let the majority rule, but don’t let them force everybody else to do what they want. (Greg Lemond)
Facts are facts: those who are capable of admitting that global warming alarmism has become a Left vs. right issue will be honest enough to realize that global warming is about politics not science. Anyone who is confused about that should read Patrick Moore’s, Confessions of a Greenpeace founder.
“Today’s debate about global warming is essentially a debate about freedom. The environmentalists would like to mastermind each and every possible (and impossible) aspect of our lives.” ~Václav Klaus (Global Warming is a doctrine not science)
The Left seems to live on the edge of a cliff of their own design and they are diametrically opposed to those who recognize their limitations and have an unquenchable desire to reach for the moon and fall among the stars. The Left should live like Al Gore if they choose to. The rest of us have the right to decide whether we will be that hypocritical. We have the right to choose honesty and truth over superstition and ignorance.
“As someone who personally experienced central planning and attempts to organize the whole society from above, I feel obliged to warn against the arguments and ambitions which are very similar to those we had to live with decades ago. The arrogance with which the GWD alarmists and their fellow-travelers in politics and media want to suppress the market, control the society, dictate the prices (directly or indirectly by means of various interventions, including taxes) is something I know well from the past. All the old, already almost forgotten economic arguments against communism should be repeated now. It is our duty to do so. ~Václav Klaus
Skepticism is a part of the scientific method. To question science is called scholarship. I have the right to be skeptical about whether the Left will ever stop lying or preaching about the coming global warming doomsday brought about by modernity.
Lying is the modus operandi of the Left—e.g., first, we begin with a flood somewhere in the world and the facts surrounding the flood – and then the Left will simply ignore any facts that do not conform with their ideologically-motivated preconceptions. For example…
Illegal logging supported by the Taliban in the northwest province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has felled as much as 70% of the forest in some districts. The lack of trees, combined with overgrazing by livestock, reduces the soil’s ability to hold water and leads to soil erosion. Flash flooding in the northern, mountainous areas then sends silt downstream, reducing the amount of water the river channel can hold. Diverting the Indus through irrigation channels has encouraged people to build closer to or even in the river channel. Many of the irrigation channels are built using techniques from the 18th century. (i.e., simple facts according to Curry and Webster)
But the Left has its own facts. The Left says America caused the flood and then they marginalize scientific skeptics, demonize capitalism, stab the productive in the back for driving to work in an SUV and declare jihad on Wal-Mart, hamburgers and the entire free enterprise economy and attack Bush and Gov. Palin and every other political leader after them who have the courage to stand up for America.
