I used to just make jokes about the warmalarmists, but when they started to want to act on their absurd and arrogant theories, things got serious. Now, of course, they are worthy only of contempt for clinging to a belief that is preposterous at best, and life threatening at worst.
I'm not talking about warming being life threatening, I'm talking about their proposed "cure," which would impose more than just economic hardship on a great many people.
As I've said many times, when I first became aware that there were idiots who wanted to actually do something about so-called "anthropogenic global warming," I knew almost nothing about the subject other than the fact that man wasn't causing anything. The reason I knew that is because I gave it the "Judge Judy Test" – if it doesn't make sense, it isn't true.
And the more I read, the less sense it made, except in one sense – a whole bunch of people stood to gain from promoting panic.
I don't mean people like the poor saps here on Vox who mindlessly believe the hype, I'm talking about criminals like Al Gore, and the many "scientists" who signed onto what is not only a false premise, but and obviously false one. They've set science back and they now have the credibility on the same level as politicians.
What prompted me to write about this again were several recent articles. The first was a shrill and panicked piece by, who else, the AP, in which the fool writer claimed that it's so cold that we've got to act fast to curb the warming.
I wish that was my weak attempt at a joke, but it's not. It was simply the biggest leap yet to keep people in fear, and the good news is that the AP was widely ridiculed for the article.
That's because more real scientists are finally stepping forward to label the warming sham what it is.
But it's important to note that by "real scientists," I don't mean to imply that they are more qualified than the UN climate panel bunch, I only mean that they put science above personal gain, and I think that's obvious since they put themselves at risk simply by speaking up.
They also demonstrate what real scientists do – they doubt. because science doesn't rely on consensus. that means nothing. That's why I'm so hard on people here who invoke "peer review," which actually means less than nothing, but it sounds so good, not only to laymen, but to those people who have a little scientific training and are so desperate to belong.
They belong all right – I won't say where. I don't need to. There's only one place that's home to wildly delusional people.
And there's no doubt they are that because of the second article that points to such fallacious thinking that causes people who should be objective in questioning just about everything to believe that "scientific consensus" equals "true."
It happens that Earth has sprung a leak. Maybe even two. And if true, there's even less we can do about it than we can about climate change. According to Space.com, "Scientists have found two large leaks in Earth's magnetosphere, the region around our planet that shields us from severe solar storms."
And these leaks are:
"defying many of scientists' previous ideas on how the interaction between Earth's magnetosphere and solar wind occurs: The leaks are in an unexpected location, let in solar particles in faster than expected and the whole interaction works in a manner that is completely the opposite of what scientists had thought."
Completely the opposite?!
And up to now, scientists believed the opposite of the opposite? How could that be?
It be because almost nothing is certain in science, if for no other reason than the universe isn't static. But probably an even bigger reason is that we don't know what we don't know. In other words, despite the desire on the part of scientists to be regarded as we regard doctors, they actually are only one step ahead of you and me in what they know… and that can be dangerous.
And what they don't even realize is that doctors themselves are in the same boat. I bet everyone has had a doctor tell them something as gospel, and they find out later it was… well… just the opposite. And when you question doc about it, he still believes he has the right info.
So now it's not enough that the fraud of "global warming" is exposed because an awful lot of people believe it, and a lot of people have an interest in keeping them believing in it – just like all religions do.
Luckily, there are more non-believers relative to believes with respect to religious warming than there are when it comes to conventional religion, but no one should expect that warmalarmist efforts to impose their beliefs, their programs, and their taxes on you will end, much less that they will disappear.
I said back when that it was wrong to point to unexpectedly cold weather as evidence that warming isn't happening, and that's because not only does that put people in the position of having to react to and justify every little temperature anomaly, but because the Earth, in fact, may be warming, but that's not a crisis, and if it is warming, the proper reaction should be to welcome it and make it work to our advantage.
In the meantime, if ever there was an argument to be made against freedom of speech, it should resemble a group picture of the UN's climate committee.
