Climate change ideology is about manipulation and control of people, and that is all it is. It has nothing whatever to do with understanding how earth’s climate changes over time, whether it be long or short time.
We are paying a high price for our indulgence of the climate change radicals who try to convince us that the end is near if we don’t do everything they tell us to do. We have nothing to fear from climate change because we can neither cause it nor stop it. It will be what it is no matter what we think or do. Trying to control it by human action is simply an “absurd, costly and pointless crusade.”
This pointless crusade is what should concern us. The crusaders are indoctrinating children into believing that mother earth will become uninhabitable in a just a few decades or even years unless we get control of the climate. It’s a neat trick, to convince us we have an absolute obligation to do something we absolutely cannot do.
Children are hectoring their parents about climate change. They’re being taught that their parents’ selfish consumption and use of fossil fuels is destroying the earth. Geez, I’m glad I don’t have kids. Who would want to sit through dinner every night with a smug 8-year old blaming you for a non-existent dystopian tragedy.
The inconvenient facts of earth’s climate and just what regulates the temperature of earth is very complex. It is so complex as to be difficult for the average person to acquire a working knowledge of it without serious study. Of course, this works to the benefit of the political radicals and true believers. Learned scientists rarely agree on all the fine points of earth’s climate. [So much for the 97% consensus flapdoodle] The idea that there is or ever could be a “consensus” on any scientific principle is nonsense. Science is an ongoing process of discovery.
Perhaps the best book to initially consult for anyone who wants to become knowledgeable on the subject is Inconvenient Facts: The Science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know by Gregory Wrightstone. The author writes in a manner that is accessible by the general reader. Even if it does not make you an expert it will give you valuable knowledge and assurance that the scaremongers don’t know what they are talking about.
One of best websites for general readers to educate themselves on the scam of human-caused climate change is Watts Up With That?
Thanks to John Hinderaker at the Powerline Blog I’ve found another source of information that is very good, albeit pretty complicated. That cannot be helped, it’s a complicated discipline. Check out Science and environmental Policy Project.
Two individuals who have the most knowledge of climate science are Trump adviser William Happer, described by Hinderaker as “the Princeton physicist who is much maligned by the political Left, but is an expert in precisely the fields of science that are relevant to evaluating the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming theory.”
Others are Roy Spencer and Trump’s advisor William Happer, professor emeritus at Princeton. Princeton describes Happer as “…a professor of physics best known for his controversial views on climate change.” No, Happer’s views are not controversial. It is Princeton’s views on climate change that are controversial.
Happer’s Wikipedia page says that Happer “…rejects the scientific consensus on climate change, and is not a climate scientist by training.” This sentence gives away Wikipedia and it’s simpleton approach. Anytime someone talks about “scientific consensus” we know right away they don’t know what they’re talking about.
Al Gore and Bill Nye are not climate scientists either, but Wikipedia thinks they are the world’s foremost experts. Their pronouncements on climate change are political claptrap in the guise of science.
