“We have a situation where everything is presented out of context in space and time. Natural events are identified or presented as unnatural. Normal events are identified or presented as abnormal. Speculation about more unnatural or abnormal events is self-fulfilling. (anon)
The AGW (anthropogenic global warming) proselytizers never prove anything–just shoot off their mouths about one impending catastrophic calamity after another that are all caused by evil businessmen–e.g., live mosquitoes, dead birds, ice that melts oooooh! And `ow `bout `dem melting glaciers?
Second to global warming itself, defining CO2 as a pollutant by Leftist econoenvirowackpots is the second greatest hoax to have been perpetrated upon a sleepy Western society. What in the disinformation age will be added next to the politically correct government list of environmental toxic and noxious substances: dihydrogen monoxide?
Water is of course already very highly taxed so there’s no revenue game in that for the government machine but still– just a small amount can kill a person quickly and does every year and that makes water more dangerous than CO2. And, water is the only thing other than CO2 that is emitted by modern US coal fired power plants.
Too bad the same thing cannot be said for the coal-fired power plants being built everyday in China, Brazil, India, etc. These are the beneficiaries of the Left’s failed secular, socialist agenda of the Government/EPA/Education Complex that kills US companies and jobs. The left’s self-defeating ideology has failed everytime it’s been tried everywhere else so this is not a wonderful surprise. The Democrats are of course very solidly behind AGW despite the fact it is the biggest hoax in our lifetimes.
Quixotically, with econoenvirowackpots sending more jobs elsewhere, it is Leftist ideologues that have become the biggest polluters on the globe. Why? By sending jobs out of the country the coal-fired power plants in these other places with different standards are not as clean-running.
The preachers of an AGW Doomsday scenario have their apocalyptic faith-based beliefs. Hysterical religious beliefs aside, the simple fact is that climate is always changing. The geophysical record of the Earth tells the story of warm periods and huge dinosaurs that once flourished and then perished and ice ages and long periods when mile-deep glaciers covered the lands.
We know glaciers come and go–sometimes obliterating everything–and, more than that: we know it is nature’s way: there is nothing humanity can do to cause or prevent it. That is the science; and, only superstition prevents us from seeing this natural process at work, without our help and irrespective of our concerns about it. The Sun is both the first and terminal reality and any variation in it that effects this world is merely a qualitative change in it but not the reality of it: it is the Sun, stupid.
The globe stopped warming. AGW climate modelers cannot understand why and where their ‘warming’ went. However, they do know that all of their predictions were wrong and for everyone to see! That makes them feel very afraid; and, project their self-deception and hatred of America wherever they look. It makes them want to leave our world and look elsewhere in vain and deluded attempts to keep their global warming hoax alive. That is why they say, don’t look here on the Earth, look over there at Venus and at Mercury. See how hot it is there. Do you want that here?
In this present crisis [e.g., so many people with Hot World Syndrome], government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. ~Ronald Reagan
Unfortunately, too much government is not the only problem. The most unfortunate thing possible for any society is when institutions founded on truth begin to prefer fiction. For example, from the Huffington Post:
In the absence of aggressive government policies aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions… potentially dangerous temperature elevations… not just a possibility… a near certainty even if things start to change.
We have seen this kind of propagana before. Jews have been the target of it in the past; and, they are again as anyone can see in the reporting coming from CNN and MSNBC. And, every American working in the free enterprise economy has also been targeted by mainstream media’s liberal fascism of the Left.
Didn’t it begin with the attempted marginalization of William Gray that the Leftist-libs employed the rhetoric of `Holocaust denier’ to compare skeptical scientists to Nazis? When we hear of a consensus, are we not being treated to the collectivists’ form of truth `finding’ and truth `making’ and ultimately, of course, the enforcement and control of `truth.’ Liberal fascism is using the monster of liberal tyranny against democracy from within (and without) — only, instead of Hitler’s Brownshirts, in this instance we have the AGW insult commie dog Pinkshirts of the global warming Familia.
Global warming only nominally was ever about the science. In reality, it has been an international conspiracy against America with some of its deepest roots in America itself. Global warming is a movement that has been taken over by the liberal wing of the Democrat Party in America with its, “collectivist creed, which denied the existence of personal responsibility; and … amoral dogma, in which all means were justified by an imaginary utopian end.”(Kyle-Anne Shiver)
To that end, we’ve seen the re-writing of history and the corruption of science in what has become one of fascism’s greatest victories over reason and individual liberty. Liberals have become the “Frankenstein’s monster against democracy,” as they maintain a purposeful obliviousness to the failed human socio-economic experimentation of the past that resulted only in the murder, privation and death of millions at the hands of Marxists.
“As Jonah Goldberg expertly expounds in his book, Liberal Fascism, American left-wing ideologues have managed to dissociate themselves from all the horrors of fascism with a `brilliant rhetorical maneuver.’ They’ve done it by ‘claiming that their opponents are the fascists’ … indulging and fostering the `Bush Is Hitler’ meme, they may have just put a genuine ideological fascist heir in the White House.
“There is inherent danger in making scurrilous comparisons (as were perpetrated unceasingly against George W. Bush), but there seem to be some very worrisome signs in the rise of Barack Obama that we Americans would be foolish to ignore.” (Ibid.)
Society’s election layed down the law on the minority part that produces all of the value that it’s outnumbered by a majority part (global warming alarmists are in this second part) that put targets on the backs of the productive.
How much has changed since, Sept. 21, 2010 – 10:27 AM?
AGW science is simply to pray for catastrophe and point. The only community-wide consensusis is transitioning from blamin’ Bush and WalMart to punishin’ all free enterprise workers as if everything they do is no bettern’ the business of makin’, sellin’ and consumin’ alcohol and tobacco in bars and casinos, and as if taxing capitalism is a legitimate state objective to limit the necesssary evil of business for the good of all the sinners who engage in it.
For all Left vs. right issues we know we are dealing with politics not science. But with AGW theory we also have an economic issue: just as we have the legal tax on the economy as a result of more and more regulation — with AGW theory — we have the bureaucrat tax. These are government taxes that represent a diversion of resources into unproductive activities that lead to a decrease in the overall wealth: the government essentially pays people not to work.
