Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

I should not have linked to the pubs article it seems to cloud the facts ( that's the problem with practicle jokes like that). Here is another that should be more acceptable.

I did read your entire post regarding your preference for a socialistic governmental income redistribution scheme... 'Doesn't mean I have to agree with you. ;-)

I guess you missed the concluding sentence of The Global and Mail piece.

What you are missing to understand is how the Population Bomb Scam and MMGW Scam are being played. The "scientists" make ridiculous predictions of cataclysmic disaster if we don't do A, B, and C. The Media that always loves a good disaster story get on board and then hype it to the next level. It then becomes faith de jour in academia and within the elite class. (butter-bad, Margarine-good) Due to the severity of the charges, and risks to mankind itself the agenda is pushed, the story line sold and media and popular culture chants along with the WMD-in-Iraq zombie like crescendo....building...higher...after more audacious prediction of doom and gloom. Then....ptsss.....plunk...pop.....

Reality hits the ludicrous predictions and the balloon pops, the Tec bubble bursts, tulip mania is over, and the now too big to fail Ethanol Scam can't be stopped because too many people are bought into the scam.

The Population Bomb, Peak Oil...all these "We have to Change our ways or Else" have been preached upon from the beginning of time and the scammers know the tune to sing. The useful idiots cling to these scams because...well by-golly...their intentions are good right? Wrong. Their intentions are to control and gain power and wealth for themselves.

The Population Bomb has been proven wrong thousands of times over just like the Peak Oil Myth is falling apart today because both of these scams make a false assumption of measuring the future using Today's tape measures. Our farm land productivity will not increase so people will die. Our Oil/energy discovery/use productivity will be the same, therefore we will run out. The fear of the future is a game often played by the snake oil salesmen to push an agenda that if they were open and honest about the masses would reject.

Now, that was fun...my Italian Herb roasted free range chicken is ready to come out of the CO2 belching oven...

At the end of the day...we have a 1st world problem on our hands here and it's funny listening to people in the top 1% of the World population economically lecture and chastise themselves on the evils that got them and is sustaining them there. That my friends forms the basis of these Religious movements. Recognition of eco sin, forgiveness of eco sins and even indulgences paid to the MMGW Church in the form of Carbon Credits.

Conservatives who support carbon taxes:

Conservatives


Perhaps you should enlighten them on how they are advocating wealth redistribution.

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

A quick multiple choice test for those who believe they have all the answers about the causes, consequences, and remedies for global warming:

Which of the following best describes the reason why approx. 50% of all Americans are skeptical?

(a) Aliteracy

(b) Illiteracy

(c) Anti-intellectualism

(d) Religion-based irrationality

(e) Just plain dumb

(f) Anti-greenie

(g) Anti-soshulist

(h) Registered Republican

(i) Conservative (or conservative)

(j) Hates cold weather

(k) Prefers not to worry & just be happy

(l) Shuns cultish behavior

(m) All of the above

(n) None of the above

L-E holds himself out as the leading scientist/scholar among us, so maybe he should go first.

Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

None of the above. ( L-E is Canadian not american) personally I just don't see GW in the overall average numbers. ( You gain some somewhere you loose some somewhere else) we shall see in a hundred years. ( Geologically speaking we shall see in a nanosecond. )

This thread has demonstrated quite clearly that no nationality test is required to judge why so many Americans are skeptical of climate change and its agenda.

I like your answer, btw.
