Climate Change: a serious farce

Ivanka Trump to review climate change as US mulls Paris pullout

“Though Trump’s inclination has been to leave the agreement, he’s allowed his daughter, White House adviser Ivanka Trump, to set up an extensive review process,”

Don’t you hate being called a ‘denier?” Me neither. In fact, I view this appellation as an affirmation of my own independent scepticism, a divergent path from that taken by the herd. In today’s” legacy media” every weather phenomenon is seen as an indication of climate change, or global warming, as it was once called until facts rendered that term inoperative.

Recently I noticed a story on the Weather Network about an enormous crack in Greenland’s Peterman glacier seen by a NASA satellite, possibly caused by wait for it… warmer ocean waters. In addition, Canada’s National Post carried a front-page piece a few weeks ago on how “A team of scientists… documented what they’re describing as the first case of large-scale river reorganization as a result of human-caused climate change.”

I don’t doubt that these phenomena are happening. What I question is their ascription to anthropogenic causes.

Rush Limbaugh famously maintains that arguing the science of climate change with leftists is pointless, as the left’s definition of science is somewhat like Humpty Dumpty’s, in that a word “…means just what I choose it to mean—nothing more nor less.”

It’s long been an article of faith among western progressives, who never tire of looking for reasons to condemn western culture, that climate change is the result of capitalist exploitation of the planet. And progressives are well known for believing that any problem, no, all problems, are soluble if we just give the experts appointed by government free reign.

What they do not seem to understand is that sometimes the people who run governments have a larger agenda, a plan that utilizes a supposed crisis to achieve a legislative consensus that would otherwise have little chance of seeing the light of day. You may recall Barack Obama’s former Chief of Staff and current mayor of that exemplary metropolis, Chicago, saying, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” meaning crises become great vehicles for advancing a particular agenda.

I recently read James Rickards’ book, The Road to Ruin, which predicts a catastrophic collapse of the global financial system sometime within the next two years. In just 300 pages he makes a very strong case that the financial crises of 1998 and 2008 were not adequately resolved by the elites because the underlying causes of these crises were left untouched. His view is that the next crisis will forever change global financial systems and money will essentially disappear. He sees climate change as the straw dog to herald this radical change:

“Climate change is a convenient horse for elites to ride in the implementation of a new world order. Debating the science of climate change is beside the point. There are heated views on both sides; some science is settled, some not. Global elites treat the debate as settled to mask a larger project. For elites the global problem once defined conjures a global solution. Climate change is the perfect platform for implementing a hidden agenda of world money and world taxation.”

For over 30 years elites have seen global warming [climate change] as a way to take from those who produce to give to those who don’t. Former Canadian Minister of the Environment, Christine Stewart told the Calgary Herald’s editorial board in 1988, “…climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” The German economist Ottmar Edenhofer, who is also co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III, put it a little more succinctly in 2010 when he told the Neue Züricher Zeitung that “climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth.”

So global elites with the help of their media sock puppets have managed to sell this pig in a poke to a large segment of the civilized world all in the name of a ‘scientific consensus.’ Just one problem: science isn’t about consensus and few people understand it enough to push back.

  1. “Obama’s ‘green jobs czar’ worked with terror founder”

    “Chairman Mao Zedong’s Theory on the Division of the Three World and the Strategy of Forming an Alliance Against an opponent”

    SZ: In other words, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Now that the Soviet Union is gone, all that remained was to weaken the U.S. and its allies. Left wing groupies in the West will eagerly do all the work without the need for external prompting, as usual. Morons.

    Stone age, here we come.

    A month ago, the NOAA, whose leadership was just replaced, had articles debunking global warming/climate change, now it’s promoting it again. Ivanka’s influence?

  2. We need a debate between two scientifically recognized teams of “supporters” and “contesters”!

  3. :
    Now that the Republicans control Washington, look for government funding, for research on the negative effects global warming, to go UP.

  4. If “climate change caused by human activity” had been around when that scoundrel, Saul Alinsky, was writing the book (“Rules for Radicals”), that might have been Rule #1 (replacing “universal single-payer healthcare”) on his infamous list of rules!! For the one-world-order devils, anything that furthers their wicked cause would be enshrined as core political theory & policy.

  5. The following op-ed is unintentionally comical. It seems to be saying that we should stay in the paris accords even though Obama’s environmental regulations are bull and hurt business and simply gut them from within while giving them lip service because most people believe in them and other countries might retaliate if we withdraw. In other words, we shouldn’t actually say out loud that the emperor has no clothes, just act knowing that he’s naked. written by:

    “George P. Shultz served as secretary of state under Ronald Reagan and as secretary of the Treasury under Richard Nixon. Ted Halstead is the president of the Climate Leadership Council.”

    “I am here to speak on freedom of speech. It is a great topic, and I am going to make my speech as free as possible. But you know that this cannot be done, for when anyone announces that he is going to speak his mind freely, everyone is frightened. This shows that there is no such thing as true freedom of speech. No one can afford to let his neighbors know what he is thinking about them. Society can exist only on the basis that there is some amount of polished lying and that no one says exactly what he thinks.
