Global warming believers need an intervention

Seraphic Secret provides the substantiation:

Several weeks ago, Karen and I visited old and beloved friends in New Jersey. A long-married couple, our friends are Democrats, but that has never diminished our affection and loyalty. Usually, we don’t discuss politics, but the issue of so-called global warming came up. When Karen and I expressed skepticism, our friends were, literally, horrified.

“You don’t believe in global warming?”

From their irate tone and expressions, you would think that Karen and I had just–G-d forbid–denied the Holocaust.

We shook our heads and suggested that Climategate should, at least, give pause to their faith in a science that supports global warming/climate change/whatever they’re calling it this week.

Our friends had no idea what we were talking about.

“The science is settled,” they insisted

And that was that.

There is no dialogue possible when one side is armed with information and facts, and the other side insists on a fossilized, delusional narrative.

I believe that even if our friends were aware of the scores of corruptions of science, it would not make a difference.

That’s because so-called climate change is the new Socialism.

And many Democrats have morphed into Socialists.

Marx also claimed that his work was scientific, beyond reproach. His theories of the withering of the state and the fall of capitalism were and are advanced as “inevitable.”

Marxism/Lennism is nothing less than a fanatic, religious cult.

And so-called climate change is the opiate of the new Socialists.

This new leftist hysteria–remember The Population Bomb and Global Freezing–is designed to alarm citizens–that’s why Osama bin Laden recently jumped on the climate change bandwagon–grow government, redistribute wealth, and create a new politburo of climate bureacrats who will dictate every detail of how we live our lives.

These are brown shirts in green.

There was a point not long ago where I wanted to empathize with leftists, to believe that they were well intentioned, that their hearts were in the right place but that their heads had yet to follow.

It’s getting tougher and tougher to adopt that sense of good will.

The fact that Obama said the following isn’t helping:

Okay.  Well, let me just talk about — this is — when the conservatives have their conventions and they yell at me and say how terrible I am — (laughter) — along with health care this is the other thing that they usually point out, which is that “the President wants to create this cap and trade system and it’s going to be a job killer and it’s one more step in the government takeover of the American economy.”  So this is a good place for me to maybe just spend a little time talking about energy and climate change.

First of all, we just got five feet of snow in Washington and so everybody is like — a lot of the people who are opponents of climate change, they say, see, look at that, there’s all this snow on the ground, this doesn’t mean anything.  I want to just be clear that the science of climate change doesn’t mean that every place is getting warmer; it means the planet as a whole is getting warmer.  But what it may mean is, for example, Vancouver, which is supposed to be getting snow during the Olympics, suddenly is at 55 degrees, and Dallas suddenly is getting seven inches of snow.

The idea is, is that as the planet as a whole gets warmer, you start seeing changing weather patterns, and that creates more violent storm systems, more unpredictable weather.  So any single place might end up being warmer; another place might end up being a little bit cooler; there might end up being more precipitation in the air, more monsoons, more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more drought in some places, floods in other places.

So I just — that’s one aspect of the science that I think everybody should understand.

I think everybody ought to also understand that much of the ‘science’ is predicated on false data being promoted as fact by hacks with an agenda.

Obama being chief amongst them.
