Climate change baloney proceeds apace.
William Happer is one of the most important scientists in the United States. He is an emeritus professor of physics at Princeton and a long-serving adviser to the federal government. His scientific discoveries and inventions are extensive. Currently, he serves in the White House as a senior adviser to the National Security Council.
The Trump administration is thinking of forming a “Presidential Committee on Climate Security.” The press has been told to direct questions to Dr. Happer. That is enough to bring out the climate hyenas. They can’t stand the thought that Trump might have some solid scientific advice concerning climate change. The hyenas are running an all-out attack against Dr. Happer.
Following Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the camp followers of the global warming industry try to create polarization. In a Time magazine article, a former admiral says Happer is a fringe figure. A climate scientist at Georgia Tech says Happer has “false, unscientific notions.” We are reassured that the global warming scare is absolutely solid science, as everyone except climate deniers knows.
What everyone may not know is that climate science is an industry, and the product is the global warming scare. If the global warming scare is discredited, the huge industry will collapse. Climate scientists used to be unimportant academics in an unimportant academic field. The global warming scare made them into celebrities jetting around the world. They won’t give up the glory without a fight.
Climate science has gone off the rails. President Eisenhower nailed the problem in his 1961 farewell address. He expressed the fear that because science had become heavily dependent on federal financial support, scientists would color the science in order to increase the flow of federal money. Nothing works better for increasing the flow of federal scientific money than predicting a future disaster. If scientists predict a disaster, we have to give them more money to research methods of preventing the disaster.
Since Eisenhower’s address, we have been treated to a parade of scientific doomsday predictions, none of which measured up to the hype. There was global cooling that preceded global warming. There were acid rain, DDT, the ozone layer, overpopulation, and many others. It is not only scientists who use a parade of disaster predictions. Environmental organizations need doomsday predictions, too, in order to keep their members interested. The press has a bias for sensationalism, so it too promotes the latest doomsday predictions.

Climate change baloney is everywhere, but is anybody listening? When Ocasio-DonkeyChompers-TacoRosado says the world will end in 12 years if we don’t get control of climate change, I and others see that as verification of how unintelligent she is. Maybe it’s her loyal followers that are below average for believing such nonsense. Maybe she’s not so dumb, she just knows how to satisfy her followers by giving them what they want to hear. If doom and gloom is what they want to hear they’re morons. Maybe she’s dumb like a fox in how she snookers people into supporting her lunatic ideas. It wouldn’t be the first time abject stupidity came out the mouths of clever demagogues.
The Kool-Aid drinking Climate Change gurus used to debate with skeptics. They don’t anymore. The Skeptics were making too much sense. They kept coming up with sound arguments the Kool-Aid drinkers couldn’t answer.
It’s uncomfortable to believe we are surrounded by people who are nuts. The climate change hoax probably affects many fewer people than we think. We know it’s near the bottom of what things people care about.
PSSST: Don’t tell anyone, but polar bears are not at risk. They aren’t decreasing in number. They may even be increasing their number. Arctic Ice has been both shrinking and expanding for centuries. The bears take little notice, they are mainly focused on eating seals, which remain plentiful.
From President Eisenhower’s farewell address in 1961:
Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
Climate science researchers would be cutting off the money flow from the government if they told the truth about climate change — that it occurs naturally. We humans cannot make it happen and we cannot stop it from happening. Because the variables are many and unpredictable no science can make reliable predictions about the future climate.
