Truth Behind Global Warming: Part II

with 31 comments

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.

  4. LC,

    Very well produced post. Good writing that I would add applause to between paragraphs if I could. Crisp method and fully on point, and reflecting my own view in a major way.

    I ran across this post that reveals one man’s decision to change his mind about global warming and why. Interesting stuff.

  5. Hi Hank

    Glad you caught my little jest. πŸ™‚

    I visited the link you provided and was reminded of how fragile our freedoms are. The one thing that has become clear about this whole global warming deception is that it’s not the planet that is in danger, but freedom itself.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  6. There are no leading scientists who are saying that we have nothing to fear from climate change. The only ones deny the scientific evidence are the ones bought and paid for by Exxon-Mobil.

    The recent IPCC report is a peer reviewed report examing the research of more than a thousand scientists from more than a hundred countries. What more solid proof do you need?

    The only global warming hoax being perpetuated is that by the deniers, liars and naysayers who stand to benefit economically from us doing nothing.

  7. Greetings to bloggernista – Welcome to the Realm

    Your conclusion that the scientific evidence of Exxon-Mobil was bought and paid for could very well be true, I have no way to know. But your conclusion also indicates that the opinions of scientists are for sale. As such you have opened the possibility that the scientific evidence used in the IPCC report was also bought and paid for. A problem indeed, who are we to believe?

    In order to find truth we need to expose the motivations of those that have a long track record of lies and hoaxes.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  8. So you think that scientists have a record of lies and hoaxes?

    I don’t believe that most scientist would fall to bribes from corporate interests like Exxon-Mobil or the American Enterprise Institute. I believe that most are doing an incredibly important job orking to build a scientific base of knowledge that will help us to make smart decisions.

  9. Hi bloggernista

    Actually I was referring to anyone that uses environmentalism as way to inflict their brand of socialism on the rest of us. Since they can’t come right out and say it is socialism they use lies, hoaxes and scare tactics to accomplish the mission.

  10. Ahhh, there’s that dreaded word again! Socialism. Its funny how no one thinks are talks about socialism as much as conservatives do except the two or three people involved with the U.S. Socialist Party. Most of us live in the real world where we are not concerned with dead political philosophy and are instead engaged in trying to develop real solutions to the challenges we face as a nation.

    Crimson, you are smart enough to know that. Socialism is dead. Now let’s get to work dealing with the real issues.

    February 13, 2007 at 4:43 pm

  11. Hi bloggernista

    Dead political philosophy, I think not. It is very much alive, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The word “socialism” is not used that much these days, but if you look closely you will discover that many of the recruitment and indoctrination methods used in socialism have been adopted by environmentalist leaders. This is really not a surprise because those socialist that didn’t want to let go needed a home and many found one in environmentalism. The name has changed but…

  12. So that’s the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy that I keep hearing about. Those damn environmentalists talk about saving the planet from a climate crisis, but really they are promoting SOCIALISM.

    bloggernista

    February 13, 2007 at 10:17 pm

  13. Hi bloggernista

    The cry to save the planet is only a diversion, in reality a full assault on our basic freedoms is being waged.

    A recent example comes from the Boston Globe columnist Ellen Goodman who wrote: β€œLet’s just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers . . . β€œ

    This is one of many recent attacks on free speech and yes, a socialist tactic in the fine art of thought control. We either recognize it for what it is, or we don’t.

  14. Crimson, if your big worry is that socialists are mounting an attack on our basic freedoms, relax. Socialists have about as much chance of having an impact on freedoms as Dennis Kucinich has of becoming president.

  15. Hi bloggernista

    You underestimate the ambition of the authors of this diversion.

    Our freedoms are taking a beating everyday. It may be helpful to consider, what exactly do political correctness and socialism have in common?

  16. It’s people like you that are going kill the next generation. There have been so many reports that climate change exists they’re uncountable. You deny global warming. Denying human caused global warming is a slight bit more acceptable, and you don’t even believe that (or you’re not making yourself clear). Recently, a chunk of ice the size of Rhode Island broke off Antarctica and melted in less than two months. 2006 was the hottest year on record in the U.S. “Socialists” are not the blame for this. People who believe nothing can be done about a big problem pretend it doesn’t exist (*cough* Holocaust). You ARE on par with Holocaust deniers. What will the next generation, and the generation after that, think of people like you?

    You want proof of global warming?:

  17. Greetings Simmons – Welcome to the Realm

    You give me far to much credit. On a good day I might could take out a couple of dozen, but a generation… not gonna happen.

    Since you are the one that believes global warming will be the death of us all, then it’s up to you to prove it. As I am still not convinced it appears that you’re not doing a very good job of persuasion.

    Since you bring it up, while I was in Germany I took a little tour through Dachau, so I am not a denier. You should probably stop using that bit of guilt, you are only embarrassing yourself.

  18. Hi Simmons,

    Just a point about the Antarctic ice shelf breaking off. That was due to an increased rate of ice formation further inland, which caused the ice on the edge of the Continent to expand over water. Thus, exposed to ocean currents, it broke off. Actually, once the facts are known, this is evidence against Global Warming.

    I would also point out that your fear mongering about “killing the next generation,” which is a gross exaggeration of even the most far fetched scenarios put forth by Climate Scientists, and your use of the term “deniers” only goes to prove that the basis of the Global Warming debate is political, not scientific.

  19. Hi Simmons

    I read the factsheet you referenced, but when I got to the part about Venus, Earth and Mars I could go no further.

    You can’t prove the Earth is in danger of global warming by altering the physics or environmental realities of another planet into a what-if this happened there, then apply that conclusion to what is going to happen on Earth. I can’t even believe you have introduced this as an argument.

    How can I or anyone else not question the rest of your factsheet, not to mention the so-called dangers of global warming?

  20. Lord Crimson:

    Apologies for “Goldilocks Effect” part of the factsheet. It was not saying Earth could become a Venus-like planet. It was trying to give two examples of other greenhouse effects of other planets. Sorry for not making that clear.

    Where did you get this information? The Onion?

  21. Hi Simmons

    The occasional curve ball does seem to keep us all on our toes.

    You did infer that Venus was hot solely because of the greenhouse effect failing to give credit to it’s relatively close distance to the sun. The way it is presented is a bit misleading.

    Lord Crimson

    Lord Crimson

    February 19, 2007 at 4:07 pm

  22. The position to the sun has less to do with the heating of Venus than the greenhouse effect does. As stated, “…the average temperature is 477 degrees Celsius. Without the greenhouse effect, the average temperature would be -46 degrees.”

  23. Hi Simmons,

    I’ll be brief.

    Anthropogenic, catastophric global climate change is a hoax.

    Play Joe Scientist if you must, but you’ve been duped and your parroting the unproven rhetoric of people who will use this sham to make your life and mine much more regulated and restricted, poorer and might even cost you your job.

    So, knock yourself out with space trivia and random examples of a historical cycle. Meantime, when you realize your a sap, get pissed at the ones who did it to you, not those that see the deceit for what it is.

    Have a nice day

  24. Lord Crimson,

    Your arguments against global warming are excellent. I really don’t believe in any of the hogwash. Sure the earth has become warmer, but I’m guessing we’ll look back on this in 30 years and it will prove to have been just another hoax.

    Personally I’m not sure about the whole socialism thing. I don’t believe I know enough on the whole issue of global warming to completely agree with you right off the bat, but what you have written has certainly enlightened me.

    Keep up the good work

  25. Hi Luke – Welcome to the Realm

    The beauty and nightmare of this particular hoax is that environmentalist can keep it going well past our lifetime.

    Socialism is one of those words thought to have disappeared with the old Soviet Union. Of course it’s not exactly the same mainly because it had to be updated for the times. But if you look around it’s everywhere. You may even recognize it as political correctness.

    Thanks for stopping by

  26. Hi LC,

    Exactly. Political correctness is cultural Marxism.

    Talk radio hosts claim the New Left skulked into control of the environmental movement, among many other hiding places.

    They’re called “watermelon” environmentalists, green on the outside, red on the inside.

    I agree.

  27. Hi Hank

    I find the most dangerous place they have infiltrated is in the universities. A friend of mine was taking a computer science class having to do with logic flow. The info they were using to teach logic was environmentalism. They are relentless in finding ways to indoctrinate people. It’s tragic.

    Watermelon… simple but true.

  29. Hi Simmons,

    I’m pretty sure that one day, fatigued with chronic fear and hand wringing, you’ll move on to exercise your obsessive/compulsive behavior in a new area of life.

    I trust you’ll choose carefully just exactly where, or on whom, you decide to exercise this sincere, but maybe just a little intense, focus.

    Please keep in mind there are laws regarding stalking, so I would keep a grip on the object of your next crusade. Google search will have some good info on the next eco-disaster, if saving the planet is still on your radar after this latest hoax blows over.

    It could be worse. You could be a compulsive gambler, or hooked on fonix.

  30. LC–nice to find your comments. While most all the comments here are a year old, I hope to hear back from you. I found all of this looking for information on socialists and environmental zealots–especially those turning to environmentalism after the fall of the USSR. I included “watermelon” in my search. I am trying to find some documentation on this whole issue. Please let me know if you have any.

  31. When “The Day After Tommorrow” came out, I had a roomate who was a PHD Nuclear chemist. Her PHD environmental scientist friend had just come back from the US research station in FIJI (the second most important environmental research station), and was about to embark on a tenure at one of the antarctic stations (the most important us environmental research station). He laughed at the premise of the movie, and pointed out that global warming theory which is based upon extrapolation of current trends is ridiculous! Our earth has extremely powerful built in mechanisms that maintain equilibrium. That means GLOBAL WARMING, whether man made or not, CAUSES GLOBAL COOLING, and visa-versa. Of course the raw data of climate change supports this, we go between warming cyles and cooling cycles. Imagine that.

    The fact is that scientists are just as effected by ego and personal ambition as any other group. Large numbers of people become environmental scientists because they believe in environmentalism, and want a career in which they can support the environmental cause.

    Add one more failed prediction – in 1994 I had a HS english teacher who had a poster on the wall of the crashing waves of an ocean. Beneath it was the caption “It will be a sad day when your children ask ‘what was an ocean'”. Upon asking her if she actually believed it, she became angry and indignant. I asked her where the water was going to go, and she claimed it would all go into the sewage systems of the world. I am absolutely being serious.
