Green drivel and deceit

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

It’s absolutely amazing to me how so many people have bought into this "global warming" claptrap.

It’s a hoax of Piltdown proportions.

At the heart and core of this is a small cadre of people who are dead set against any economic advancement or worthwhile industrialization.

I’m convinced of that.

There was a recent editorial in "New Scientist" magazine that outlined "The Folly of Growth: How to stop the economy killing the planet."

Naturally, they are hiding behind the "environment" and presenting all manner of lies to justify everything from ridiculous schemes such as "cap and trade" of "greenhouse gas emissions" – also sometimes referred to as "pollution credits" – to scraping the most effective means of generating electricity, coal and nuclear in exchange for unsightly wind turbines and expensive solar panels.

Making energy more expensive is one sure fire way of wrecking an already fragile economy.

Unless I’m mistaken it was our soon-to-be presidential disaster that promised to bankrupt the coal business and make energy more expensive.

All in the name of protecting the environment, of course.

I’m not going to be happy when my electricity bill goes up.

How about you?

To achieve their goal of making energy more expensive, environmental organizations poured millions into electing Obama.

The trade publication, "Greenwire," published an article confirming what Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) investigated.

It seems those organizations indeed funded partisan political activities.

They are non-profits and not supposed to engage in stuff like that, but, being slanted left excuses many sins.

I believe it was in the movie "Jerry McGuire" where one character said, "Show me the money."

The really germane question to ask is "Who will get rich off selling carbon/pollution credits?"

Al Gore and his friends come immediately to my mind. Another question is who would benefit from pushing propositions such as that recently passed in San Francisco requiring that only "clean" energy be used?

My guess would be the owners and investors in wind and solar energy.

Sounds logical to me.

What’s really frustrating is these people completely ignore all the evidence pouring in debunking global warming.

They don’t want to hear that the world’s ice caps aren’t melting, and satellite data showing concerns over levels of sea ice are premature.

It appears ice levels that had shrunk from 13 million square kilometers in January 2007 to just over four million in October, are now almost back to their original levels.

Apparently, all that "lost" ice has been found.

Oh, and those hapless polar bears shown desperately clinging to melting icebergs, well, it would seem snow cover across the area is at its greatest level since 1966.

Al Gore, high priest of the burning planet, used this in his schlockumentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," lecturing us on mankind’s impact on the world.

Seems he hyperventilates too much.

Data from the UK Met Office shows temperatures during the first half of the year to have been more than 0.1 Celsius cooler than any year since 2000.

Could this correlate to a La Nina cycle which cools the globe?

Add to that the reported drop off in solar activity and you have a natural cycle having nothing to do with manmade causes.

Then, we have the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation which scientists speculate will hold temperatures steady for perhaps the next decade.

One can’t turn on the TV without some advertisement spouting how some company or another is "going green."

If someone builds a new office building and it is built in a more energy efficient way to save money, then that’s something I can support.

But I can’t support it just because they want to spout they’re greenness.

If you believe in global warming, there’s probably no way to convince you otherwise.

However, the facts clearly show a different outlook is possible, even probable.

Greens are trying to control what you buy for Christmas, what you pay for energy and are involved via propaganda in bizarre schemes to undermine our nation’s energy needs.

To make matters even worse, this drivel is being passed along to our children in school as being a hard, indisputable fact.

There is another side to this argument and it deserves to be heard.
