Are you interested in giving government more power to impose devastating costs and resource restrictions on the economy, that provide little or no benefit to the wellbeing of consumers and the nation, and exempting from such ever-growing government intrusions, none but the politically correct cash-for-clunkers schemes of the friends of the Left? Then, fear of global warming is the gift you want to give the ever-growing bureaucracy to use for their own personal and political benefit and power.
“If we are in a global warming crisis today,” says Harold Faulkner (Global Warming? All Lies and More Lies…), “even the most aggressive and costly proposals for limiting industrial carbon dioxide emissions and all other government proposals and taxes would have a negligible effect on global climate! The government is lying, trying to use global warming to limit, and tax its citizens through cap and trade and other tax schemes for the government’s benefit. We, the people cannot allow this to happen.”
Kristen Barnes (Ponder the Maunder) at 15 years old could figure this out. Instead of celebrating her perspicacity, here we are 7 years later and still, so many of us fail to realize, our society is fundamentally dishonest. When Al Gore claimed there was a scientific consensus of opinion that humanity was causing global warming, he was being dishonest. All of academia that stood by quietly was being dishonest. What was the consensus of opinion among the German people about the opening of an eastern front with the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 — all good up to now but this… I don’t know… maybe this is a big mistake?
We must believe the government scientists because the public is the real problem. Sure, sure, the global warming hoax is academia’s knowing deception on the people. But, the government’s scientists know the public; and, they have nothing but contempt for them and their employers. Who wouldn’t: as the country goes broke the voters continue to return the same dishonest anti-business people to public office. Just throw the public a bone like raising the minimum wage, again. It is dishonest because it does not help those it is supposed to help — just the reverse: that’s basic econ that is taught even in the public schools going back to the 60s during the first two years of prerequisite college courses in biology and sex education.
We might as well trust government scientists because who else is there: the people? We learned a few days ago that two-thirds of America’s youth — 17 to 24 — would not qualify for military service (Twitter / WSJ: More than two-thirds of America’s …). They’re fit perhaps for nothing else but being future students in an environmental PhD program at a state university and employment in the anti-business government bureaucracy, or as cash-for-clunkers government scientists wearing global warming doomsday signs around their necks, or as meat for community organizers who cater to those who are willing to cast their last vote for the fall of Western civilization.
