Weather is reality. Climate is hindsight.
The AGW hypothesis is that government-funded schoolteachers can predict future climate using models based on increases in human-produced CO2. Climatists’ GCMs (Global Circulation Models) are simple toy models of the world that can never be verified and will say anything their fabricators want them to say (see–e.g., Humanity Guilty of Global Warming Until Proven Innocent)
AGW is numerology not science. Underlying AGW true believers’ faith is a peculiar and unfortunately an all too common understanding of their place in the universe. They believe the world is doomed if we do not listen to them and do what they tell us to do. Climatists bet so much of their futures in fear of the future they can’t back down even when confronted with clear signals that nature not humanity controls the climate. They continue to bask in a surreal reflection of reality to justify their actions.
THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE: the Left’s indulgence in what Bob Carter calls, “GCM computer gamesmanship,” is mute testimony to the existence of government-sponsored science authoritarianism in America. The Kafkesque machinations of the climate machine show how far they’re willing to go to enforce their beliefs on the rest of us. Their hatred was glowing hot when they united to denigrate respected scientist William Gray by employing the hot rhetoric of ‘Holocaust denier’ to compare skeptics of global warming to those who turned their backs on Nazi atrocities against the Jews.
The Left’s cultural jihad against the American philosophy of self-reliance is a Democrat party phenomenon that Emerson would get a good chuckle over today. The Left’s faith in the wisdom of the village and the government bureaucrat and its outright contempt for the limitless power of the individual should sound weak, weird and wicked to any philosopher.
Ask nothing of men, and in the endless mutation, thou only firm column must presently appear the upholder of all that surrounds thee. He who knows that power is inborn, that he is weak because he has looked for good out of him and elsewhere, and so perceiving, throws himself unhesitatingly on his thought, instantly rights himself, stands in the erect position, commands his limbs, works miracles; just as a man who stands on his feet is stronger than a man who stands on his head. (Emerson)
The Left no longer serves any function in American society other than as an antagonist to hope, the moral levee, principals of free enterprise, rational individualism and a humane socioeconomic system built upon giving value to truth. The Left has become the cheerleader of failure.
The tendency of things runs steadily to this point, namely, to put every man on his merits, and to give him so much power as he naturally exerts — no more, no less. (Emerson)
The excessive indulgence of emotion by these government school teachers of climate disaster is hardest on reason. The greatest terror they have is to be awake when truth happens. Disbelieving of nature these school teachers have now come to fear it. We’d have a lot smarter voters if we grounded the use of mechanical equipment for a year and instead, sent every public school teacher and student to the farms to bring in the crops.
Downsizing the federal footprint on the country — on the neck of the country — is the only way to fix the real problem. States will deal with real not phony issues, locally. Some states may wish to go nuclear and will be happy to sell excess energy to their neighbors… like France sells nuclear-generated electricity to its neighbors. Let California be free to tax 110% of the wages of those in the free enterprise sector — or, 120% if that is what it takes to pass a budget there — until, they go bankrupt like Greece and their bones are picked clean by realists.
The chastening example of Euro-communism has now come home to roost. The Left and Democrat party government workers have literally run opportunity out of the state of California. Factory jobs have plummeted since 2000 leaving the state’s industrial base down by more than a third. The state’s bureaucracy unilaterally imposed its own version of a cap-and-trade carbon policy on its economy and simply outlaws politically incorrect products like plastic bags and incandescent bulbs.
It is easier for AGW true believers to choke on their own bile than to admit they have been wrong about global warming and worse that they have been merciless pushers of an anti-humanist climate porn agenda on a level comparable to a Nazi hate crime — for money — on a par with digging the gold out the teeth of Jews while they’re still alive. The private political parties — especially the Democrat party — caters to these nihilists and that is a disgrace.
