Climate Change—much like its predecessor, Global Warming—is junk science. It is also a perfectly good way to launder money right out of the pockets of the American taxpayer because money is the solution to this phony problem at every turn. How can we fix our climate woes? Increased taxes, increased regulations, increased restriction of fossil fuels, money spent on non-existent and unfeasible alternative energy sources, and more and more programs just like these. In every case, money is transferring hands all in the name of staving off the impending disaster that could kill us all.
The folly behind this is simply that an unsubstantiated claim has been made in the first place, and what a horrific claim it is! Some B-grade movies have lesser plots. Those who question the science behind climate change are shadow-boxing with a virtual oponent: no real evidence is offered to prove that climate change exists. It lives on based on a very limited dataset—a dataset that can be twisted to support any point of view. Government grant money scientists perpetuate the myth for it guarantees more grant money will flow into their pockets. Any real scientist who questions the validity of the data is labeled a nut and hounded by the press to stop trying to cover up the “truth.” You might say, no pun intended, it is the perfect storm.
The Global Warming hysteria began with a bunch of tree-huggers who did not understand (and still don’t) that trees have a limited life span. If they are not harvested, they eventually die, just as mankind does. But in the tree-huggers’ minds, the death of those trees is caused by greenhouse gas, and they continue to push this misinformation. Today we have a president who has seen the power and control that can be exerted by using this assumption, and he intends to do so.
Needless to say, with the president spearheading the effort, the government is going to get neck-deep in climate control. For those like Obama who would like to see a world government which controls everything and everyone (as if mankind ever could possess the power to change the climate),this is pretty heady stuff. Going hand-in-hand with this stupidity is the notion that we will globally all hold hands, sit in a large circle, and sing Kumbaya. However, while everyone is enjoying that worldly comaraderie, a few men in positions of power will be taking advantage of their naïveté and lining their pockets. Obama hopes to be among those few not only on the money end, but also on the power end.
The U.S. media is complicit in this as we are fed a steady diet of stories illustrative of how specific things have occurred and the only reason that they have is because of climate change. More and more of the gullible voters become filled with a sense of impending disaster, just like in those B-Grade movies. Today, those who perpetuate this on-going falsehood have to be totally elated that Pope Francis has taken up the mantle so to speak, asking the people of the USA to work toward what amounts to environmental social justice. Note, the problem is us—no one else—US! Of course, with the Pope’s advocacy, those of the Catholic faith ,may urge Obama to issue yet more costly and cumbersome executive orders that ultimately destroy the fossil fuel industry long before any real alternatives exist. What is the price to the U.S. taxpayer? More taxes, higher prices, more restrictions, and the potential lowering of our standard of living. Well-played for a president who despises middle-income America and seeks to reduce them to a level of poverty comparable to that found in third world countries.
With both government and religious leaders backing climate control efforts, we will quickly pass Cap & Trade regulation, which amounts to nothing less than the extortion of U.S. industries based on their carbon footprint. Every year businesses will be assessed a fee based on the size of their footprints. The theory, of course, is that businesses will seek to reduce those fees by becoming ecologically responsible and sound. However, using the slimy Al Gore coupon exchange, companies that nevertheless wish to grow their carbon footprint will be allowed to purchase the carbon credits of someone else and use them to expand. If that sounds like a zero-sum game, it is. Meanwhile, Obama will be playing golf in sunny California as a former president and the Pope will be back in the Vatican—neither giving a tinker’s damn as to what their environmental claims cost you as an American.
It is time for real science to stand up and defend its domain, but I fear that will not happen as more and more true scientists are coerced into silence through the threat of loss of grants and being labeled flat-earthers who do not care about our planet. Many do not see this fight as worthwhile but it is every bit as necessary as war and requires the same courage. Mark my word, the effort to amass centralized govermental control using climate change as the vehicle will bring about change, but you can rest assured it will have nothing to do with the weather. At the same time, the weather will be pointed to and lauded as the proof that climate control efforts worked. Ironically, just like the initial claim, there will be no proof. Oh what a perfect storm!
