The ice age we were promised in the 70s was upon us
…has shown up 40-years later. And is of course caused by anthropogenic global warming — which we were only recently told had beset us — either of which can only be forestalled by massive global wealth redistribution and the end of industry, without which, to borrow from a desperately rationalizing Bill Murray in Stripes, “all the the plants will die.”
Here’s the truth, though: the weather is controlled by the sun. Increased release of CO2 — which, as human exhalation, isn’t a pollutant just because 2 of 3 judges on a panel declare the EPA has the right to classify it as one, just as a penalty isn’t a tax just because 1 justice on a 9 justice panel declares it is, perhaps after a plate of bad oysters — actually feeds plants, creates oxygen, and is a barrier to naturally occurring cooling cycles.
Rednecks out burning rubber in ATVs — the very people who we’re told by leftists are too moronic to appear even on hunting shows — don’t have the magical power to affect our atmosphere or climate. And as we’ve become increasingly “green” in our technologies, we’re still nevertheless told that all that work to be environmentally friendly is not enough, that all the improvements we were told would protect the planet haven’t worked, and so require ever more concessions to the insatiable appetite for de-industrialization from the environmentalist movemnt.
Like everything else the left trots out with its sophistry and strained emotionalism, though, the whole climate change industry is, and always has been, at base about the restructuring of power, the re-configuring of global wealth, and the totalitarian control of individuals and industry through centralized, unelected bureaucracies beyond the reach of voters.
Coupled with the left’s desire to delegitimize state sovereignty and its constant longing for transnational progressivism embodied in World Courts and tribunals of those who’ve been groomed since birth to assume what they believe is their natural position as earth’s social engineers — people once again whose very value should naturally place them outside the temporary whims of the doltish herds and their ridiculous voting powers — climate “science,” proven always and forever to be as phony as the promise of “free” health care, is but the vehicle through which the progressive central planners hope to affect a worldwide restructuring of power and wealth.
Though not, of course, for themselves. Who will be quite adequately taken care of. For doing the difficult work of ruling the planet. Which one simply must do in the nicest shoes and custom suits, while being chauffeured around in reinforced town cars with body guards and diplomatic perks.
For the Greater Good. And because WHY DO YOU DENIALISTS HATE EARTH?
