These people are not going to give up. After revelation upon revelation of deliberate fraud in the global warming–excuse me–climate change sciences, this weekend the New York Times boldly published an op-ed by none other than the big daddy of the gigantic hoax of global warming, Al Gore, titled, “We Can’t Wish Away Climate Change.”
It was an extremely difficult piece to read without shouting at my computer monitor. And as I read it, I thought that Gore and his fellow members of the Church of Climate Change are the most audacious liars I’ve ever seen–because I can’t possibly bring myself to accept that they actually believe what they profess. I stopped counting the lies after a few paragraphs.
Gore opens with this brilliant gem:
“It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”
That’s only the beginning of a series of brazen whoppers, all of which I don’t have the space to detail here. I’ll just focus on a few lowlights.
Gore goes on to say that our dependence on a global oil market with “dwindling reserves” of Middle East oil is a national security risk. Oh, really? Then, why not drill for our own oil? We have plenty! There is no need for us to buy a drop of foreign oil, and the American people have been demanding that we drill here and drill now.
He says that we need to “deal with” those national security risks, and that:
“…we would still trail China in the race to develop smart grids, fast trains, solar power, wind, geothermal and other renewable sources of energy — the most important sources of new jobs in the 21st century.”
What?! Is he kidding? China is one of the world’s largest polluters, and I can’t imagine that the communist Chinese give a rip about solar, wind and other “green” technologies, when they already have what works–coal, oil and natural gas. Gore goes on to blame the United States for China’s continued pollution because Congress did not pass cap and trade legislation. I’m not making this up. He blames us for China’s pollution. Amazing.
“The political paralysis that is now so painfully evident in Washington has thus far prevented action by the Senate — not only on climate and energy legislation, but also on health care reform, financial regulatory reform and a host of other pressing issues.”
Political paralysis? The Republicans can’t stop a thing the Democrats want to do! This is evidence of the power that we the people still maintain. It has been outrage and action by American citizens that have kept at bay some of the most dangerous and liberty-robbing legislation proposed in the history of our great republic. These pieces of legislation that Gore calls “pressing issues,” are only “pressing” to a power-mad group of budding fascists that currently control our Congress and White House.
Gore includes almost comical scare tactics to describe the results of “lags in the global climate system”:
“…large and destructive consequences inevitable….[are] the displacement of hundreds of millions of climate refugees, civil unrest, chaos and the collapse of governance in many developing countries, large-scale crop failures and the spread of deadly diseases.”
Those sound much more like the deeply-desired goals of the left-wing sixties radicals that now run our government than the predicted results of climate and weather changes.
Of course, he blames free market capitalism for the horrors of global warming:
“This period of market triumphalism coincided with confirmation by scientists that earlier fears about global warming had been grossly understated. But by then, the political context in which this debate took form was tilted heavily toward the views of market fundamentalists, who fought to weaken existing constraints and scoffed at the possibility that global constraints would be needed to halt the dangerous dumping of global-warming pollution into the atmosphere.
Over the years, as the science has become clearer and clearer, some industries and companies whose business plans are dependent on unrestrained pollution of the atmospheric commons have become ever more entrenched. They are ferociously fighting against the mildest regulation — just as tobacco companies blocked constraints on the marketing of cigarettes for four decades after science confirmed the link of cigarettes to diseases of the lung and the heart.”
Oh, sure. We have so very many industries and companies here in America that completely depend on their unrestrained pollution for the success of their businesses. Right. And, they’re fighting ferociously against the mildest regulations? Get real, Gore! American industries and companies are possibly the most heavily taxed and regulated in the entire world! As far as pollution goes, we’re one of the best and cleanest, behind, say, Haiti, which has been rated one of the “greenest” republics. Now, there’s a picture of what the elites want the future of America to look like: Haiti–with its crushing poverty and wretched squalor.
Gore has to get his jab in at right-wing news sources as well:
“Some news media organizations now present showmen masquerading as political thinkers who package hatred and divisiveness as entertainment. And as in times past, that has proved to be a potent drug in the veins of the body politic. Their most consistent theme is to label as “socialist” any proposal to reform exploitive behavior in the marketplace.”
At least he gives Fox News credit for being a “potent drug.” I’m sure Fox News appreciates the backhanded compliment.
One of the most telling lines in Gore’s piece is this:
“From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.”
Human redemption. What a duplicitous choice of words! In classic doublespeak, Gore is declaring that the global elite’s plans to dominate the people of the world could be in jeopardy because of the backlash against the fraud of global warming, now that it has been clearly exposed.
None of what Al Gore is writing about in his piece has a thing to do with his love of the environment and his fear for the safety of civilization. Not at all! Many of us can see right through this plan of the globalists, which they are in panic mode trying to salvage. The cap and trade regulations, and other such “rules of law,” have as their purpose the hobbling of the people under excessive, freedom-snatching, authoritarian rule and taxation, and the redistribution of all wealth–not to “those less fortunate,” but to those in power.
