The politics of climate “science” is about one group of people attempting to control another group of people with propaganda and trickery. The impetus for climate change is presented as saving planet earth. If the alarmists can convince you then you will be more willing to let them dictate a life style for you that you would not otherwise choose for yourself. It’s about political control and nothing else, certainly not science.
The book shown at left is a cornucopia of information about climate baloney offered up as filet mignon.
Here is an excellent article, Climate “Science” Riddled With Dishonesty, Incompetence, by Walter E. Williams, economics professor at George Mason University. Williams shows how the goal of climate alarmists has little to do with climate and a lot to do with social engineering. These Cassandras believe that if they can get you to go along with their exaggerations and scaremongering then you will become pliable for conversion to their political demands. These include screwball schemes for eliminating inequality and remaking economic policy away from capitalism and moving toward socialism.
Professor Williams gives us some compelling examples:
Once in a while environmentalists reveal their true agenda. Ottmar Edenhofer, lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fourth summary report released in 2007, speaking in 2010 advised: “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth.”
United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that the true aim of the U.N.’s 2014 Paris climate conference was “to change the (capitalist) economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
Christine Stewart, Canada’s former minister of the environment, said: “No matter if the science is all phony, there are collateral environmental benefits. … Climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.”
Tim Wirth, former U.S. undersecretary of state for global affairs and the person most responsible for setting up the Kyoto Protocol, said: “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
Of course, not all scientists are dishonest or incompetent. Some of them even speak out against the hoopla of the alarmists. The majority do not. Why is that? What are they afraid of? Two things, I’d say. First, they might lose their jobs and never again be able to get government grants for their research in other areas. Second, the agenda driven climate change industry is too strong for a much smaller group to effectively take on. In other words, it’s just the usual fear of standing out and facing backlash. Most of us do not relish becoming the target of Leftist hatred.
There is one brave scientist out there who is standing up to the mob and exposing the trickery they use to fool us. Tony Heller has producing a video showing just how the alarmists manipulate data to persuade us to believe the ridiculous.
The video is about 12 minutes long and requires your careful attention. It’s worth it, believe me. You will become enlightened and you will no longer be easy to fool. Watch:
