The Climate Change hoax, continued
Human exhalation is not a pollutant. Neither is water vapor. If both were so, then we would be cancers on a host planet, and as such, be in need of eradication. The only moral measure to be taken, if you anthropomorphize the planet — or worse yet, turn it into a vulnerable God troubled by its creations (and how can this not be what you’re doing, given your strict adherence to all manner of evolutionary theory, even that which incorrectly addresses first causes, where it has no business venturing) — is that humanity, and animals, and those things giving aid and life to animals (vegetation, which perversely turns our pollutants back into oxygen, so that we can continue to destroy the earth’s atmosphere and climate), should be terminated, not merely mitigated. And even if you believe is a sliding scale, and accept that mitigation is a moral compromise you can live with — you’ll keep the planet forever sick and warming/cooling, etc., in exchange for life, just so long as the life we get to keep is yours, and you can use it to tell others how they must live — that sliding scale should at least include things like quotas on the number of new lives produced on the planet, which leads to population control, forced sterilization, forced abortion, natural disaster allowance, etc., in order that it isn’t entirely passive and entirely self-serving.
You are, in effect, Malthusians, only you need to be punishing plant life as well for aiding and abetting the destruction of our atmosphere. Meaning, you worship certain rocks, I suppose. And one of your priests has a comical, made-for-TV name.
But then, that’s a description of the true believers. Who are not the same as the politicians, a breed of cynical creature who will work with the useful idiots to secure power, transfer wealth, and tyrannize the rest of us. Al Gore being foremost among these, with John Kerry, John Holdren, and Prince Charles now also serving such a function. Though they don’t believe even for a second their own lunatic assertions — now, climate change is the world’s greatest weapon of mass destruction (I’d go into how the left usurps and refigures language, but who cares, right? Pseudo-intellectual and fundamentally unserious are such dissertations, unless they are delivered years later by those who earlier dismissed them) — they press on with them nonetheless.
And though the wrap themselves in the mantle of science — having perverted that signifier as well (but I’ll be quiet now; don’t want to be even more marginalized than I already am) — they are only interested in “science” such that it has become an arm of political and public policy, much in the same way they believe in legitimate “news media” only inasmuch as it parrots the official government line.
This is all very Soviet, but then, there I go again, being all Visigothy and so likely in line for a good tongue lashing from one of my more nuanced betters.
Look: anthropomorphic global climate change is absolute horse shit, and every real scientist knows it. That we have enough of a groundswell of activists willing to insist otherwise and will a false narrative into a “settled truth” only suggests that the postmodernists were in a sense right when they argued that the very concept of truth, being a man-made construct, is value-neutral, and so belongs to those most able to assert their version of it.
Fortunately, “truth” and “things as they really are,” to borrow a distinction from Rorty, aren’t both controlled by man or his collective will to power and perception. And things as they are is where actual science is located as an investigatory apparatus. Too, it has a way of really punching truth based on phony, concocted, propagandistic narratives right in the face, leaving it sprawled out naked and spread eagle in the dirt for all to see.
Like many of the left’s paradigmatic frames, these lies they repurpose as their “truths” disappear the moment we refuse to accept them — and to accept the policies they implement to keep their falsehoods entrenched in positions of policy power. So resist we much. And we must. Even if it’s racist to do so.
The way to show a lie to be a lie is to attack it head on and put it on the defensive.
And you can tell the real scientists from the partisan hacks living off the industry of government funding for world-wide wealth redistribution plans — camouflaged as science — based around just such an observation. Selling your soul for a pittance and a byline. How utterly sad.
