“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Dr. Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister for the Nazi Third Reich
Between liberal lawmakers, movie stars, Democrat mouthpieces in the media, and liberal media outlets (press, radio, TV, college professors, etc.) – they make Joseph Goebbels statement true. The climate changes, as it does every day, week, month, year and all the seasons within, yup, it changes. Always has and probably always will, unless there is a cataclysmic event such as a large meteor striking the earth, massive volcanic eruptions (think Krakatoa) or the Sun exploding with massive sun flares, among other possibilities.
Let’s examine the record of statements made by proponents of “global warming,” “global climate change” or whatever other title the true believers want to hang on the subject:
Sen. John Kerry in 2009:
“Scientists project that the Arctic will be ice-free in the summer of 2013.”
John, how did that turn out?
Former Vice President Albert Gore Jr. in 2009:
“Some of the models suggest that there is a 75% chance that the entire north polar ice cap during some of the summer months will be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.”
Oh, oh, now what lie can we keep going?
Remember the plight of the polar bears? Earlier this year, Dr. Susan Crockford of the Global Warming Policy Foundation discovered, “On almost every measure, things are looking good for polar bears. Scientists are finding that they are well distributed throughout their range and adapting well to changes in sea ice. Health indicators are good and they are benefiting from abundant prey.” There’s roughly 25,000 polar bears estimated to be roaming the Arctic, up from 5,000 in the 1960s.
What, that wasn’t supposed to happen! The polar bear was doomed to extinction, or so we were told.
Panic will set in when the funding slows for the foundation and her job will be in jeopardy.
I consider myself a thinking, knowledgeable person, especially when it comes to anything scientific. I read both sides of the debate, examine the data and reports, and make up my own mind as there is no consensus in science, only fact. I’ve always thought this climate change stuff was fishy.
There are extremes in any season, year, decade, century and eon… since the dawn of time on earth. Massive floods, droughts, massive glaciers, volcanic action, hurricanes and cyclones, hot, cold – all helped shape the earth over time. There were massive swings in temperature and climate in different centuries due to cycles in the warming and cooling cycles due to mainly sun activity (sun flares), the amount of solar energy expended or not. Low activity resulted in cooler climate periods; high activity resulted in warmer climate periods.
We have experienced 17 years of reduced sun activity from 1998 to now, resulting in the slow cooling of the planet. Contrary to popular myth, actually lies, the earth is not heating, it is cooling – be more cognizant of the facts and worried about longer, colder winters and shorter growing seasons.
The Vikings, when first landing in North America (Greenland), found a temperate climate island, where food was grown in abundance for both human consumption and livestock feed. This was the most western Viking outpost at the time. As the mini-Ice Age started, the Vikings slowly abandoned the island due to climate changing from pleasant to inhabitable, with a rapidly dwindling growing season. They landed on the island at the end of the warmer weather cycle and thrived and survived until the colder cycle started and became the norm. The Vikings slowly abandoned their outpost.
Will we become the like the Vikings and see the change from temperate, overall pleasant turning of seasons to colder, longer winters and shorter growing seasons? Will our descendants see another Ice Age and glaciation of the northern hemisphere? That’s what we were told in the early 1970s. Time will tell — not popular belief, not “consensus” and certainly not lying politicians, spin-miesters, liberal media talking heads or those indebted for their grants and sustenance in claiming otherwise.
Follow the money… and the money is on you believing the scalawags in Washington D.C., media, and those consensus “scientists.” Do your own research, open your eyes and go into the search with an open mind. You’ll find there is no 97% consensus, as the president and other politicians and media folks so famously and constantly cite. Why do they do this – reread the opening paragraph. Nobody is denying the climate is changing (when hasn’t it?) – just not in the direction we’ve been told over, and over and over.
But why is it changing? (and it isn’t from human activity). Humans don’t have that kind of power, no matter who says we do. In the hundreds of years of weather/climate history, it was colder, hotter, the seas were higher and the CO2 levels were two to four times higher – without any or very little human activity at all – how did that happen if human activity is now the cause of the climate changes? This is fact, not consensus or conjecture. Makes a person want to say “hmmmm.”
Use your head and reasoning. Don’t listen to others who are beholden to the “climate change” scare crowd for their funding and influence. If we as a nation buy into this nonsense and start down the road of spending money on initiatives to help control it, it will be money wasted, and with our debt, we can’t afford to squander money and resources.
Yes, facts are stubborn things. You can’t buy facts, they just exist without a price tag. The president, Democrats, Remocrats and others that believe in such “climate warming,” “climate change” lies and flim-flam are spouting ignorance and will continue to spread lies, because that is what they do. Ever notice when a liberal idea works, it is great. If it doesn’t, it needs more time and much more money, sound familiar? The politicians are going to use this issue to squander more of your tax dollars to “help” correct “climate change.” Sorry, it can’t and will never happen, humans are powerless to change or control the climate. Dollars down the drain, like so many government programs.
The rotting of America from within continues …….
