It will be scary-expensive to see this movie: ‘The Attack of the Scientific Juveniles From Hell.’ The plot may seem drearily familiar: Western schoolteachers eating the brains of a generation of future union workers. The setting is close to home—i.e., it could be in any public school near you where the glazed-over sitters of the government-education complex are lethargically engaged in churning out nihilistic dropouts like noisy ditto machines stuck on overdrive.
Of course, bad public schools mean we need to raise taxes to fix’m, right? How about an emissions trading scheme? Writing in The Australian, professor Bob Carter at James Cook University said the idea of taxing CO2 would be the dream of politicians, ticket clippers and mafia chiefs everywhere —e.g., who would just love abundant flows of free revenue based on, as Carter explains, “an invisible, colorless, odorless, tasteless and often unmeasurable gas.” And, no one even needs to get their hands dirty because there are no goods being made or exchanged — there’s just this “glistening pot of gold which beckons to be mined from the innocent public.”
Even as government agencies report on snowfall records and temperatures at their lowest-ever they’re still busily propagating greenhouse propaganda like juveniles toilet-papering trees. With government’s secular, socialist hegemony over the public schools the result is much like we get with all of the computer-generated global warming research — GIGO: Garbage in, God’s-truth Out.
Government bureaucracies that define CO2 as a pollutant and engage in spreading fears about human-caused global de-glaciation should be labeled for what it is: doomsday propaganda spread by anti-America Euro-communists and green-robed enviro-posers. Errors, misinformation, bias and distorted reporting of natural events is the problem today not receding glaciers and melting ice packs. Public schools that ignore history and abandon the scientific method are the problem not human CO2. Hysterical government-funded propaganda aside, the simple fact is that glaciers come and go on nature’s schedule — at times covering the Earth and obliterating everything in the process — is not something that skeptical scientists can conveniently fail to notice.
In brief, from the age of enlightenment we have emerged into the philosophy of post-modernism which sets aside evidence as the authority and asserts that the ‘truth’ is what you believe – if you believe it, then it is your ‘truth’. Importantly all opinions are to be given equal authority irrespective of the where the evidence may lie. These ideas have progressed to what is now called ‘Post Normal Science’. This holds that science is subservient to the story that must be told. The role of science is no longer about discovering new ‘truth’ but supporting the ‘story’ which is perceived to be the truth. This gives rise to the notion of “noble-cause science”, which allows scientists to ignore contrary evidence, or worse, manipulate the evidence, if the cause is noble. We have seen evidence of this in the climate change debate. (Doug Edmeades)
That children fear receding glaciers can be attributed to the serious lack of quality education in the dropout factories of the failed governmental-education complex. Moreover, a powerful interest group has taken over public education: the secular, socialist agenda gives the Left a special interest in putting forward a distorted view of the world for ideologically motivated political purposes.
Our ancestors coped with mammoth ice ages, droughts which depopulated whole countries, spreading deserts of Saharan magnitude and floods of biblical proportions. Those who sat and sacrificed their substance on fantasies such as ‘Global Warming’ perished and left no descendants. Those with the sense to adapt to the changed climates by migration, new food sources, better technology and more productive lifestyles survived.
None of our ancestors were led to survival by high priests in green robes with computer models chanting anti-energy and anti-food slogans.
Never before have we seen a whole generation of western leaders in politics, media, education, academia and big business so cushioned by prosperity, and so mesmerized by pagan nature-worship that they have lost sight of what created and maintains human existence.” (Viv Forbes)
AGW is the absurd thriller of our time and a hot comedy too. But, this has become a story with a fictional antecedent known as The Trial by Franz Kafka. If you can imagine for a moment what it would be like for Kafka, a captive in the throes of paranoid government agencies who suspect a crime was committed. But, in our novel, we really are guilty: we emitted poisonous CO2. In mitigation, we couldn’t appreciate the seriousness of our crime because we believe in real science, not an official government science that is the creature and creation of the politics, ignorance, fear, superstition, hate and intrigue that is now taught in the secular, socialist government-funded bizarre and macabre education complex.
Oh how the green fur flew when CRUGate conspirator Phil Jones was caught amidst the Left’s manipulation and deception and in a brief moment of candor admitted there really had been no global warming and later recanted—e.g.,

Melanie Phillips (The World Turned Upside Down) hit upon the core of the problem: “that science has given way to ideology. The scientific method has been dispensed with, or abused, to serve the myth of man-made global warming.” The mythology of global warming is based upon computer models that, according to Phillips, “are built in an almost backwards fashion: The goal is to show evidence of AGW, and the scientists go to work to produce such a result. When even these models fail to show what advocates want, the data and interpretations are ‘fudged’ to bring about the desired result.”
The loss of religious belief has meant the West has replaced reason and truth with ideology and prejudice, which it enforces in the manner of a secular inquisition. The result has been a kind of mass derangement, as truth and lies, right and wrong, victim and aggressor are all turned upside down. In medieval-style witch- hunts, scientists who are skeptical of global warming are hounded from their posts; Israel is ferociously demonized; and the United States is vilified over the war on terror-all on the basis of falsehoods and propaganda that are believed as truth. (Melanie Phillips)
How concerned should we be about this? This is not something that the market takes care of: this is political and social science not science and economics. Should we be concerned about those in academia who are taking our money as they cast their votes against the survival of Americanism and capitalism? And, what do their votes portend for Western civilization and the future of humanity? We now see public education in its current state of development is being used for the purposes of state propaganda and bringing about a compliant disarmed public that is kept in a perpetual state of fear, and dependency on government hand-outs, in times of both war and peace.
The founding fathers got it — they were right about something we’ve lost. There’s much more to the story of human civilization built upon a unified code of moral and spiritual precepts than the names of ancestors long dead like Confucius, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Dostoevsky probably said it best: “The West has lost Christ and that is why it is dying; that is the only reason.”
