Commentary from the liberterrain…
In “Why I Deny Global Warming” geophysicist David Deming recounts, “When I testified before the US Senate in 2006, I stated that a major climate researcher told me in 1995 that “we have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.”
It “had to be erased from history for ideological reasons,” he explains.
Now, as if on cue, fellow Examiner Paul Hamaker reports that the other politically incorrect historical event, the non-human-caused Little Ice Age that so vexes Climate Changers has been debunked.
In “Proof: Climate change is not normal” he cites Swedish climate research claiming that the Little Ice Age was localized to the northern hemisphere and therefore not a case of global climate change.
Unfortunately, climate change science has been thoroughly polluted with blind faith, corruption, greed, and lies (you can read proof and disproof all over the internet. Take your cherry-pick).
When progressives smell something fishy in the non-progressive world they chant, “Follow the money!”
So why don’t they do the same with climate change?
“Follow the government subsidy money!”
It’s because they apparently can’t see climate change as a Get Rich Quicker Scheme for the ruling class.
Climate change today is part religion, part politics, part big money corporatist opportunism, and part science. The part that is genuine science has been so unscrupulously steamrolled by the other, dominate parts, that it ceases to be science once it leaves the hands of the scientists, becomes bastardized by a watchdog-turned-neutered-lapdog media, and is put on display as fact.
Failure, or refusal, by the dogmatic left progressive environmental religionists to follow the climate change subsidy money while screaming, “Follow the money” at everyone else is hypocritical.
Remove all the subsidy money from climate change and the whole issue disappears overnight.
With so much corruption, we may never know in our lifetimes whether climate change is human-caused or not, whether climate science is a real science or just palm reading for the rubes, or a religion that would have remained a cult if only big bucks weren’t involved.
Remove the religious fervor, political corruption, profit motive and media mendacity from climate change and there might be a chance for intelligent discourse.
And then, considering that every anti-libertarian anti-freedom “solution” to the climate change “problem” demands trillions more tax dollars and thousands more coercive government-dictated regulations, deep skepticism is the only intelligent position possible.
