If you want to join the cult of Global Warming True Believers you first must live in one of the Blue Cities. Begin by placing faith in government scientists. Or, become a government bureaucrat or a self righteous school teacher destitute of the impulse to any uplifting activity who can care less about ever providing anything of value to society. That is how you can be afraid of runaway global warming — so much so you are willing to destroy the US economy to prevent human-caused CO2 — and still be deemed employable and even trusted to preach insane superstition and ignorance in the nation’s classrooms.
Outside the Blue Cities and government most see pretty clearly the threat to individual liberty of the runaway secular, socialist Big Government Education Machine’s war on American values and the toll it is taking on reason and science and how it is contributing to destruction of the economy and the English language and to the fall of Western civilization. Obviously, global warming is not a problem; but, fear of it certainly is: humanity has always had more to fear from global cooling and in historical context, seeing global warming as a potential threat to future generations is superstitius ignorance.
Follow the money: government has spent billions demonizing oil companies. Government scientists and willing Leftist-liberal journalists blame evil Big Oil and the productive for global warming and hypocritically proclaim industrialization to be bad news. Al Gore expects us all to pay more and more taxes just to be told we cannot live like Al Gore who has made millions pushing his climate porn.
If we didn’t know better, we’d think the operative rules were: Never seek logical or alternative answers, if you can blame a phenomenon or problem (like decreasing frog populations) on global warming. Do whatever it takes and fund whatever research is needed, to advance the goals of ending hydrocarbon use, increasing government control and `transforming’ society. And always include the terms `global warming’ or `climate change’ in any grant application. ~Paul Driessen, Willie Soon, and David R. Legates (Cause for alarm, May 2010)
Scientists in China, Japan, Russia are all getting a really good chuckle at the ‘science’ that is found in secular, socialist Western academia: the ‘science’ of the Leftists looking for their commie dog Utopia. English once was a language of reason and logic. Now, it’s the language of AGW boy-yoy-yoing!
If you don’t squeeze oranges by hand that is going to lead to runaway global warming and destroy all life. It may be a bit more difficult but the liberal fascists of global warming are telling us we must start making our carrot juice by hand and peanut butter too.
Walter Starck has the guts to go on the record, calling those who ‘have seized the chance to blame climate change and push the alarmist agenda,’ nothing more that ‘climate looters.’ Starck says their behavior is ‘blatant alarmist opportunism’ that is no different from those who would ‘exploit a flood tragedy.’ to loot others of their property and as an excuse to gouge.

It is easy to see how the AGW True Believers and the Leftists use the same tactics that we see being used by the Democrat party. Amidst the catastrophe of murder in Arizona the first thing the Democrat party did was to blame Governor Palin. Similarly, Leftist-liberal journalists point to bad weather as good evidence of America causing climate change.
The attempt to attribute these floods to global warming is only a rerun of a similar attempt with tropical cyclones after hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Since then several years of below average storm activity plus statistical studies showing no recent trend of increase have left the warmists looking for a new alarm. The floods have provided it, if they can just insert GW as the suggested cause and keep ENSO/IPO unmentioned.” ~Walter Starck
After more than a decade of a cooling trend will the prophets of AGW come to be seen as foolish or hysterical fanatics who have moved on from destroying the culture to demolishing the economy? Surely, the AGW True Believers’ use of natural variations in the weather — both hot and cold and a hoped-for disaster somewhere — to indict the productive must be seen as a hate crime against the most industrious among us or simple-minded self-defeating nihilism.
Facts are facts: Starck says not a “shred of credible evidence exists to indicate a causal relationship between any extreme weather events and anthropogenic climate change and there is no evidence for any increase in the frequency or intensity of such events which is outside the bounds of historical variability.” To the Left, blaming B-i-g O-i-l simply spells M-o-r-e T-a-x-e-s. As Margaret Thatcher said, “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.”
“The ongoing push to squander billions of dollars and sacrifice our economies on the altar of climate change is dangerous nonsense. Like sundry other isms, Climatism is a triumph of belief over evidence, of righteousness over reason.” ~Walter Starck
The global warming alarmists prayed for Thermageddon but their prayers were not answered. Worse for them, nothing happened — temperatures stopped trending up after 1998 and polar bears didn’t die (now there are more polar bears than ever). As Michael Graham observed, that is when, “the mantra became ‘climate change.’ The liberals formerly known as ‘warmists’ began predicting that we would experience fundamental changes in our weather. Scientists at the University of East Anglia — the Harvard of climate change — said snow would be ‘a very rare and exciting event.’ Children wouldn’t know what it was.” Then came Snowmageddon, burying the East in the confabulations of the Left. So, that is when the Leftist-liberal journalists started talking about climate wierding.
