Were the anthropogenic “climate change” debate really about climate change…

This would put an end to it once and for all.

But because “climate change” legislation and regulation has always just been a progressive Trojan horse meant to give cover to plans for global wealth redistribution, the re-urbanization of “the masses,” and the personal financial interests of “green energy” and or / carbon credit investors, it won’t end — no matter how discredited is the science.

And that’s because the environmentalist foot soldiers who serve as the pawns to those using their movement for political and financial gain are too emotionally invested ever to let go; while those who bank on that zeal have every motivation to keep the fiction alive.

  1. “Climate change” isn’t about weather.

    “Gun Control” isn’t about weapons.

    “Gay Marriage” isn’t about marriage.

    All these “issues” are really about the proglodytes desire to create their version of utopia, and force it down everyone’s throat regardless their rights or desires.

  2. But because “climate change” legislation and regulation has always just been a progressive Trojan horse meant to give cover to plans for global wealth redistribution, the re-urbanization of “the masses,”

    The solution is always the same – it is the “problem” that has changed. I’m just old enough to remember talk about the “population bomb” and a coming ice age. I also remember that the “action” required by each of these previous crises was the same as it ever was.

  3. every sixth row of corn you pass

    becomes ethanol in your gas

    ethanol helps keeps our air clean

    so our earth can stay real green!

    is what the decatur farm bureau say

  4. burma shave

  5. ethanol helps keeps our air clean

    so our earth can stay real green!

    Green oh green with rows of corn

    Where erstwhile rainforests had grown

  6. John Boehner’s on the case. In fact, he’s already found the solution: raise marginal rates on millionaires! ‘Cause people who can’t afford nat. gas for winter heat won’t burn more wood.

  7. It gets worse on how all this links up. CAGW, education reform, K-12 and higher ed, the Regional Equity Movement also known as Metropolitanism, and the racial justice movement are all linked together in a redesigned around Green Energy/Centrally Planned Economy.

    http://www.invisibleserfscollar.com/protected-producers-vs-paying-consumerstaxpayerswho-will-prevail-on-education-and-the-economy/ is from a breakfast I went to where a Brookings rep was describing the future. Think Agenda 21 with a new hip name.

    In case you were wondering why Van Jones gets so excited about Green Jobs.

    It could also be called how do we and our cronies control the economy for our benefit without it being apparent that is what is going on.

  8. What else is correlated with climate change is number of pirates. Unfortunately, the way things swing is that we really need to bring piracy back.

    But it could be the right thing to do. Because the Earth has a fever, and it’s either more cowbell, or piracy.

  9. I have seen that chart about pirates.

    Everytime I look at Washington I seriously question its accuracy.

  10. every sixth row of corn you pass
    is undigested and comes out your ass

    so chew, kids!

  11. I can’t wait for the EPA to reverse their finding that CO2 is a pollutant. Yeah, I’m sure that’ll be along any day now…

  12. “ethanol helps keeps our air clean
    so our earth can stay real green!
    Green oh green with rows of corn
    Where erstwhile rainforests had grown”

    We shrink our cars and yard machines,
    And dump the ten to try fifteen,
    And thus we save the owl and toad,
    Though our engines soon corrode.
    And thus we start each wondrous day,
    Under the boots of the EPA.

  13. “John Boehner’s on the case.”

    No doubt it will be an epic tale of good versus evil. I shall call it “The Boehneriad: Once You Go Orange, You Never Go Back. “

  14. every sixth row of corn you pass

    becomes ethanol in your gas

    yet for every gallon of ethanol produced

    two gallons of gas must be reduced

  15. And makes the steaks cost more,
    Which means you’ll eat balogna more.

  16. And Stephen King’s Children of the Corn
    Lose their habitat and go into porn.

  17. We’ll see what He Who Walks Behind the Rows has to say about that noise.

  18. and everyone knows lead can’t turn to gold

    and only to burn is gasoline sold

    if food we could make from gasoline

    burning our food wouldn’t seem so obscene

  19. Reverse their finding that CO2 is a pollutant?

    Heck, the EPA put out a report a few weeks ago Called “The Road Ahead” where they adopted Systems Thinking to help them better predict the future. In order to better protect us.

    Going back to Meadows and Forester’s pooh-poohed work from 1972′s Limits to Growth. How does it feel to have the EPA refer to you as a “socio-technical system embedded in its broader environment?”

    Leaving out the part about Systems Thinking being a metaphor and not factually true. They wish to control and any theory will do.

  20. He walks behind the rows
    Was a mutation of ergot
    According the guy who ended “It”
    With a little girl doing some tag team shit.

    Ick.

  21. “and everyone knows lead can’t turn to gold*’

    *except maybe in supernovae

  22. “1972?s Limits to Growth”

    Ah, yes. A previous edition of “settled science”. They used computers and everything!

    See also: Paul Ehrlich.

    We were supposed to be at the Soylent Green stage long before now, but somehow it didn’t happen.

  23. Ehrlich was just a dumber hack shade of Malthus anyhoo. We found out that people populations don’t scale the same way guppies do and then went on acting like they did anyway because SCIENCE(TM)!

  24. Anyone who thinks lead can’t turn to gold hasn’t priced ammunition lately.

    Thanks. I’ll be here all week.

  25. … because classic liberals can’t read…

    Professor Steve Sherwood, the director of the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of NSW, was the lead author of the chapter in question.

    He says the idea that the chapter he authored confirms a greater role for solar and other cosmic rays in global warming is “ridiculous”.

    “I’m sure you could go and read those paragraphs yourself and the summary of it and see that we conclude exactly the opposite – that this cosmic ray effect that the paragraph is discussing appears to be negligible,” he told PM.

  26. From slippery’s link:

    Climate communication fellow for the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland John Cooke says, if anything, warming is worse than predicted in the last IPCC report.

    “One of the main differences between the previous IPCC report and this one is [that] they’re including the role of ice sheets on sea level rise,” he said.

    “Ice sheet loss has accelerated, and so they’re contributing more and more to sea level rise.

    “Back in the fourth assessment report in 2007, I think [the predicted sea level rise] was around 20 centimetres [by the end of the century]. Now it’s getting up towards one metre.”

    John Cooke: also not a climatologist. But saying lots and lots and lots of things about climate!

  27. Having accused us of illiteracy, and then having significant text thrown back at him, will slippy apologize and retract his unsubstantiated insult? Will he even realize that it’s impossible for illiterates to interact in comment sections like this?

    Though I suppose, given his vast experience in YouTube comment sections, we should probably cut him some slack.

  28. … because classic liberals can’t read…

    Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh.

    I notice you’ve been gone for a bit. Having difficulty finding Google rebuttals to real scientists are you?

    Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh.

  29. Speaking of climate science amateurs, let’s not overlook the head of the IPCC, railroad engineer Rajendra K. Pachauri:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajendra_K._Pachauri

    Quite a character. Novelist, prevaricator, misappropriator of funds…

    Regarding Sherwood — The W.U.W.T. rebuttal destroys Sherwood. He’s not just wrong– he’s not acting as a scientist. Makes this “Slippery” character look like rather careless and credulous for not checking, given that W.U.W.T. was the source of the original post. A strange oversight, given the M.O. of this entity: it keeps informing everyone of its alleged superiority.

  30. it keeps informing everyone of its alleged superiority.

    If slippy doesn’t tell us how superior he is, how will we ever find out?

  31. In the land of slipshod, “illiterate” means not buying the progressive party line. So, it’s a definition problem.

    Slip has to connect to the hive mind to download updated talking points. That takes some time, and explains why he and other trolls have similar writing styles.
