What if climate change really was a problem. Imagine just sitting around and doing nothing while the productive were busy destroying our world. We’d have to kill them all.
How well do you deal with lies and delusions? What is your best argument against ridiculous and far fetched ideas? It’s all a waiting game now. Global warming alarmists, for example, cannot make the climate cooperate with their perspective.
When you’ve invested so much in a project – as climatists have using someone else’s money – you’re driven to throw good money after bad. The only positive thing we can accomplish at this point is getting science out of the middle of the global warming debate. “We should let politics decide,” says Mike Hulme, “without being ambushed by a chimera of political prescriptiveness dressed up as scientific unanimity.”
The “new approach to environmentalism,” according to Dr. Patrick Moore (co-founder of Greenpeace and author of, Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout), “requires embracing humans as a positive element in evolution rather than viewing us as some kind of mistake.” The Left’s anti-humanist and anti-capitalist agenda should die a quiet death as aspiring modernists in Brazil, Russia, India and China prepare to cast handfuls of dirt on the grave of Eurocommunism. The West had a good economic argument – we won! – the ‘BRIC’ countries read our play book, they copied our moves and they’re in the game, for good:
Has it ever occurred to you how astonishing the culture of Western society really is? Industrialized nations provide their citizens with unprecedented safety, health, and comfort. Average life spans increased fifty percent in the last century. Yet modern people live in abject fear. They are afraid of strangers, disease, of crime, of the environment. They are afraid of the homes they live in, the food they eat, the technology that surrounds them. They are in a particular panic over things they can’t even see–germs, chemicals, additives, pollutants. They are timid, nervous, fretful, and depressed. And even more amazingly, they are convinced that the environment of the entire planet is being destroyed around them. Remarkable! Like the belief in witchcraft, it’s an extraordinary delusion–a global fantasy worthy of the Middle Ages. Everything is going to hell, and we must all live in fear. Amazing. ~Crichton
It is time for a reconciliation of sorts. Forget about there being no consequences for years of knowing misrepresentation and collusion on the part of those who are taking public money to deceive the public about global warming (who would sacrifice their sons and daughters on the altar of secular, socialist liberal Utopianism). Hot or cold we need to look to the future with renewed energy. “Two thousand years of published human histories say that the warm periods were good for people,” as Dennis Avery reminds us. “It was the harsh, unstable Dark Ages and Little Ice Age that brought bigger storms, untimely frost, widespread famine and plagues of disease.”
We can hope for continued global warming. But, we know what we can expect, sooner or later—decades of unrelenting cold weather; and, humanity can as it has in the past also deal with the inevitability of global cooling. Rather than a human-effect on climate, history tells us concerns about effects should be the other way around: natural catastrophes and not human-caused disasters are the only realistic climate threats we face—e.g.,
While nobody anymore expects any civilization to get extinct because of climate, it is becoming clear that convergent events such as earthquakes and volcanic activity in synergy with climate anomalies may produce significant stress to contemporary populations vis-à-vis their social and economic development. It is thus important that we understand how the evolutionary trajectory of early civilizations was disrupted and that even today we may not be completely immune to hazardous stress induced by natural catastrophes. ~A. Tsonis, et al., Climate change and the demise of Minoan civilization, Clim. Past, 6, 525–530 (2010)
We also must set aside the play book of the Party of Doom (the Democrat party, with its emphasis on Dark Ages politics and climate fear mongering). The Left has made a business out of finding fault in the success of others. The Left and global warming alarmists are the same folks: they’re good at exporting jobs to places like China, India and Brazil –i.e., nations that are far less environmentally sensitive.
The Left believes we should be more like nuclear-powered France; but, they stand in the way of developing nuclear energy in the US (Leftist icon, Ted Kennedy killed more people than died at Three Mile Island). The Left only demonizes American-owned oil companies and the Left is genius at making us more dependent on foreign oil and buddying up with fascists and dictators, as when leaders and places like, Russia, Castro, Chavez, Iran and the UN-IPCC helped the Left demonize president Bush. It is still a key plank in the Democrat platform that American businesses are mainly responsible for global warming and that people who run such businesses are personally responsible—e.g.,
While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, one of the main causes. ~Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
Doesn’t your average Leftist, liberal-leaning, global warming-believing college professor blame all the problems in the world on capitalism, business, religion, America and Jews? Isn’t that why the schools run by the governmental-education complex are nothing but babysitting dropout factories and purveyors of climate change superstition and scientific fraud? Isn’t the Democrat party just as hypocritical as Al Gore and just as complicit in dishonesty as Michael Mann with his ‘hockey stick’ graph and the data manipulators of CRUgate?
The Left was very good at extorting more money from smokers by forcing businesses to collect ever more sin-taxes. The Left created the cigarette warning label industry (Warning: quitting cigarettes may cause weight-gain). But their only real success, other than collecting more taxes, was to accidently help create the e-cigarette industry and legalized pot. Runaway government spending, impending inflation and runaway Big Mac prices should be more concerning than runaway global warming or what people choose put in their mouths.
There were scares of global cooling in the 1970s and climatists obviously must admit, as George Will 0bserved, their “models were wrong.” Current scares about global warming are just the flip-side of the climate coin. “What happened to global cooling?” asks Will. “And now we’re supposed to risk several trillions of dollars of global growth and spending on new models that might be wrong?”
Let’s get real: it is time we stopped paying scientists to scare children with their toy climate models. Focusing on the 35-year record of temperatures in the tropics, an area “promoted by the EPA as a fingerprint of human-induced climate change,” that according to Dr. John Christy, is “an exceptionally large target for climate models to aim at,” Christy says, “the very latest climate models’ tropical response to CO2, on average, is still 2 to 5 times greater than reality, just as it was in 1996.” (See—e.g., Congressional testimony of Dr. John Christy)
“First, the IPCC relies on climate models to distinguish natural from human caused climate change,” says Dr. John Christy, and “these same models on average fail by a significant amount to reproduce the climate of the past 35 years.” Even so, “the IPCC now has even more confidence that the models can distinguish natural from human change over a period the models clearly fail to simulate well,” concludes Christy. “It doesn’t make sense to me.”
Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
