Truth Behind Global Warming: Part II
The wheels are turning at full speed now that the mainstream media has enlisted into the global warming army. The blitz has begun and there is no stopping it now. You can expect an untold number of news reports warning us of our impending doom which will be credited to our arch-enemy global warming. It’s almost like a super-villain that gets credit for every anomaly nature has to offer. So let’s take a common sense look at this harbinger of death that many claim has been unleashed upon the earth.
The first logical place to begin is with the scientist that study such events. On one side we have a consensus of leading scientist that claim global warming presents a danger. On the other side we have a consensus of leading scientist that claim that there is no danger and climate change is the natural progression of the earth cycle. Since most of us aren’t scientist, how are we to interpret this dispute? The fact that there “is” a dispute gives us a clue. The beauty of science is that if the facts prove the existence and danger of global warming then no scientist would be able to dispute the conclusion. As we do find ourselves with opposing points of view the only conclusion we can reach is that we are not dealing with scientific facts, but with speculation.
Now we must ask, why are so many people clamoring for the acceptance of global warming on the basis of speculation? Science has not proven the claims and dangers of global warming, so what is it about this issue that warrants such blind devotion? We know that environmentalism has always offered a pattern of doomsday scenarios with one claim after another all of which promise the destruction of the planet. If nothing else you must question why every prediction promises global destruction if we don’t do something to fix it right now.
Since the 60’s there have been a long list of global scares from environmentalist. There was the nuclear scare discouraging the use of nuclear power. Next was the chemical scare which also promised to destroy all life on the planet. When these predictions failed to materialize they offered up over population or as they phrased it, the population bomb. They warned us that overpopulation was leading to the depletion of all resources resulting in the collapse of civilization. This also proved false, but other scares were right around the corner.
There was air and water pollution, then universal famine, the DDT scare, then acid rain, then nuclear winter, then global cooling, then rainforest depletion, then ozone depletion, and now their new super-villian is global warming. As you can see it is one scare after another all of which claims the destruction of the planet. Each use guilt as a way to separate the public from their money and a way to dictate the way others should live their lives. The greatest difference with the global warming scare is that they have gotten smart and don’t define a specific date of destruction within our lifetime. This keeps the promise of death fresh and your wallets open for much longer than previous scares. Now for a common sense question, with this long track record of failed promises of destruction, why should we believe them about global warming?
Now let’s consider those of you that are not sure about global warming and ask why don’t we take precautionary measures, just in case? In the past, we have taken measures in the form of discontinuing leaded gas, requiring catalytic converters for automobiles, recycling, countless energy saving measures, taking mixtures of freon off the market believed to be harmful, and the list goes on. But if you look at any environmentalist graph you will discover not even a dip after these measures were implemented. In fact, considering the goal of the environmentalist there would be surprise if the scare line did decrease. Over the past decades these precautionary measures have cost the public trillions with few measurable results.
On your quest for wisdom you must understand that environmentalism is a religion, not science. It is where the leftist, socialist, communist, godless choose to congregate. Global warming is designed to make you feel responsible for global destruction and to feel guilty about how you live your life. They envision after this guilt has been sufficiently implanted, you will be more than willing to save the planet by making reparations in the form of higher taxes, more government control over your life, the acceptance of greater restrictions and less freedoms. Their ultimate goal is bigger government with themselves in charge wielding the powers of a dictator over your life and mine.
