I saw this on my blog feed and I just want to point out two issues I have with what I am reading…
Take a look at the 17 different possible projected paths of this hurricane over the next several days based on computer forecast models. We can’t predict the path of a hurricane over the next week but we can predict “man-made” global warming over the next 50 years? How can a rational, logical, objective person square those two statements with a straight face?
I noticed that several states are preparing states of emergency for the not inevitable landfall of this hurricane. Let’s call it what it is. Several states are preparing to trigger a legislative free money spigot where millions of Federal dollars stolen from the taxpayers in every other state that doesn’t touch the Atlantic Ocean can flow like a high-tide flood to the benefit of taxpayers that choose to live in areas subject to hurricane damage and flooding.
And I’ll close with this…
I was listening to a podcast recently about the hundreds of predictions that environmental toads have been squirting on all of us for the past 30 years and how none of them have come true. How the entire business model for the environmental movement is fear mongering, and ignoring past false predictions in lieu of making new, modern, fresh fear mongering false predictions. Stefan mentioned how he remembers hearing about the world running out of oil in 1985 and the dampening effect that had on his childhood. How that instills a small sense of hopelessness in children, that fear.
Then I remembered what it was for me. It was the repetitious hammering into my young child brain about the disappearance of the rain forests and how by the time I had children they would all be gone. I have children. The rain forests are still here.
In fact, I just recently learned that the rain forests aren’t the “lungs of the earth” that we were brainwashed with as kids. The “lungs of the earth” are actually the forests that ring the southern edge of the north pole and extend thousands of miles south. These forests are so massive, they dwarf the rain forests.
Lies, lies lies. My life has become a daily exercise in discovering all of the lies I’ve been told. I’ve spent ten years unwinding what I’ve been told during the first 30.
