The UK Daily Mail has the story. Despite some logical tap-dancing by a number of “experts” in the article, the fact remains that the predictions of doom and gloom regarding the polar ice cap are complete hogwash. And I cannot shake the feeling that, like so much else about the “environmental movement” dominated by anti-capitalists with a statist communist agenda, these “experts” knew it all along. Which is why there has been massive fraud and dishonesty in the body of research regarding
Global Cooling Global Warming Anthropogenic Climate Change.
Al Gore, inventor of the internet, once ominously forecast that by this summer (2014) it would be possible to have “ice-free” polar waters. The predictions of the acceleration of global warming that would cause sea levels to rise (global cooling alarmists were predicting sea levels to fall back in the 70s) have proven entirely inaccurate. Even given the widespread manipulation of scientific data, the warmest year on record was some sixteen years ago. The twelve months between March 2013 and March 2014 were the coldest on record in North America. The snow cover in the Himalayas was supposed to have melted, but we know that the snow cover is as deep as it has ever been. Massive hurricanes, we are constantly told, will destroy coastal US cities because climate change will make them so much more powerful and intense. Yet, we have had the longest drought for a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) striking US soil in a century. It has been nearly NINE YEARS since Hurricane Wilma struck the US mainland in October of 2005.
Each and every prediction has been wrong. All of them. So why do they persist? Why is it that the EPA is allowed dictatorial powers as a mere regulatory entity of our government? Because “environmentalism” is yet another path that the far-left is employing to engorge the power of government, enrolling the ideologically rabid but wildly ill-informed and poorly reasoned (you listening, Sam Locklear?), to erode capitalism and make private business and private citizens in this country subject to the extra-legal authority of unfettered and ideologically-driven bureaucratic apparatus. And that authority will be wielded by distinctly far-left zealots who despise capitalism and see mankind as a dangerous inconvenience to the perfect world they seek. And, of course, there is money in it. Lots and lots of money. Taxpayer money. For research. For bureaucracy. For enforcement, often at the end of a gun that the far-left purports to despise when it is in the hands of a private citizen.
Barack Obama partakes of the lies, and perpetuates them to the American people. There are enough addle-headed and smug Prius drivers to nod grimly and resolutely when Obama talks of the next draconian measures that will stifle free enterprise and once again increase the scope of government power to have the complicit media tell us that such measures are not only necessary but popular. New carbon rules, choking regulation of industry, emphatically demanded from the man who demands his dog be put on a separate airplane to join him on vacation. After all, the environmental omelet requires the breaking of eggs. Those eggs just happen to be the liberties of American citizens, which once again are so inconvenient to the Socialist-Communist Secular Paradise that Hope and Change will bring us.
