Several weeks ago, Karen and I visited old and beloved friends in New Jersey. A long-married couple, our friends are Democrats, but that has never diminished our affection and loyalty. Usually, we don’t discuss politics, but the issue of so-called global warming came up. When Karen and I expressed skepticism, our friends were, literally, horrified.
“You don’t believe in global warming?”
From their irate tone and expressions, you would think that Karen and I had just—G-d forbid—denied the Holocaust.
Our friends had no idea what we were talking about.
“The science is settled,” they insisted
And that was that.
There is no dialogue possible when one side is armed with information and facts, and the other side insists on a fossilized, delusional narrative.
I believe that even if our friends were aware of the scores of corruptions of science, it would not make a difference.
That’s because so-called climate change is the new Socialism.
And many Democrats have morphed into Socialists.
Marx also claimed that his work was scientific, beyond reproach. His theories of the withering of the state and the fall of capitalism were and are advanced as “inevitable.”
Marxism/Lennism is nothing less than a fanatic, religious cult.
And so-called climate change is the opiate of the new Socialists.
This new leftist hysteria—remember The Population Bomb and Global Freezing—is designed to alarm citizens—that’s why Osama bin Laden recently jumped on the climate change bandwagon—grow government, redistribute wealth, and create a new politburo of climate bureacrats who will dictate every detail of how we live our lives.
These are brown shirts in green.
My informed and articulate friend Wolf Howling presents A Summary of the Not So Settled Science of Anthropogenic Global Warming. This is an important post.
Over the weekend came a series of revelations and admissions by one of AGW’s most influential figures, the current head of East Anglia University’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), Phil Jones (technically, he is on leave). His bombshells concerning paleoclimatalogical data, the Medieval Warming Period and its ramifications, and the current period of alleged global warming are a dagger in the heart of AGW. Also over the weekend, yet another major research paper documented that modern climate records are untrustworthy and have been significantly manipulated.
To prove the theory of AGW, climate scientists had to show that global warming is occurring at a historically unprecedented rate and that such warming is caused by human emissions of carbon dioxide. Yet, in light of Climategate and revelations both before and since, it would appear that the “unequivocal” and “settled” theory of AGW is anything but.
