Are scientists ever right?

February 22, 2007

 

Maybe “scientists” are stupid, or maybe the scientists often quoted about the perils of global warming are nothing more than puppets for the communists that fund them, either way history shows that the current global warming farce isn’t the first climate changing Armageddon them came up with.

I’m sure many of us have heard about the whole global cooling fear mongering “scientists” forced on us 30 years ago, but take a look at this article from a 1975 Newsweek piece that discusses it. It hits home a little harder when you actually read an article from a popular magazine, rather than just hearing someone say “remember when global cooling was all the rage”.

Presidential Straw Poll

I recently added a new widget that allows you to vote for the your favorite presidential candidate on my personal blog, because this site does not support html.  Click the link here and you will notice the widget in the right hand column.  You can vote for one Republican and one Democrat, and you can vote once weekly.  Check it out and voice your opinion!

Manufacturing Conventional Wisdom

February 10, 2007

 

Humans are causing global warming…right?  That is what the majority of people world wide believe.  It is being taught in school, reported on the news, and legislated as indisputable fact, when in reality it is far from fact and there are a lot of people whose views are silenced.  We are witnessing conventional wisdom creation right before our very eyes.  It is eerily reminiscent of communist propaganda tactics. 

Sure, there are people that believe global warming is caused by humans, and there are others that don’t believe it, that is fine, but it is others like Lou Dobbs, that have closed the door on debate.  Why?  Well…how could anyone think humans don’t cause global warming.  It should be conventional wisdom, and it should never be questioned.  If you do question it, or just flat out don’t believe it, you are thought to have your head in the sand.  Watch Lou Dobbs close the door on the debate here:

It isn’t just the media that is manufacturing conventional wisdom on global warming.  Here is an interesting post about two state governors that are removing their respective state’s climate experts, because they don’t believe humans are causing global warming. 

And then there is John Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe’s letter to Exxon Mobile telling them what they should believe, where they should spend their money, and to stop saying (ie censoring) global warming is not human made, and start saying humans are causing it.  Unbelievable!

 

In light of the adverse impacts still resulting from your corporations activities, we must request that ExxonMobil end any further financial assistance or other support to groups or individuals whose public advocacy has contributed to the small, but unfortunately effective, climate change denial myth. Further, we believe ExxonMobil should take additional steps to improve the public debate, and consequently the reputation of the United States. We would recommend that ExxonMobil publicly acknowledge both the reality of climate change and the role of humans in causing or exacerbating it.

  Then there are other tactics that are used to reinforce the conventional wisdom, like teaching it in school (which I already  mentioned).  Get the kids believing it when they are young and they will grow up believing those things.  Just recently it was announced there will be a huge global warming concert on July 7th, three days after Nancy Pelosi has decided to hijack the 4th of July and make it “energy independence day”.

The reason I chose global warming to illustrate just a few of the ways conventional wisdom is manufactured is because it has been such a hot topic lately and there are a lot of examples out there.  It is by no means the only issue that I could have used, but it is the most obvious.

I want to take their profits

February 5, 2007

 

Those were the words of Mrs. Bill Clinton when she was addressing the Democratic National Committee in Baltimore this past Friday.  Apparently, Mrs. Clinton feels companies are only allowed to be profitable to a certain extent, before she starts planning out what she feels are better ways to spend those profits, and confiscate them.

“I want to take those profits and put them into an alternative energy fund that will begin to fund alternative smart energy alternatives that will actually begin to move us toward the direction of independence.”

What is bothersome is that there are really people out there that would vote for her for president, because of statements like this.  What I think is more appropriate is if we take all of the excess money Hillary and Bill have and start funding alternative smart energy with their money.  Then I would like to raid all of the unions in the country and take all of their acquired union dues and spend that on alternative smart energy.   Then I would like to go to all of the movie studios and actors and actresses and take all of their excess money and spend it on alternative smart energy.  Then I would like to go to all of the environmental agencies that fund junk science and take their money and spend it on alternative smart energy instead. 

We have a great nation, with a great capitalist system, and they will invest their own money on research and development projects that projected to be feasible, and profitable.  To think the bloated government will spend any of our money better than we can, is just stupid…plain and simple.

Does the left want us all to die from global warming?

February 3, 2007

 

I just read this excellent article by Deroy Murdock regarding the hypocrisy of the left on the issue of global warming.  Nuclear power, hydro-electricity, wind power…not good enough for the left.  Why isn’t it good enough?  Well, this just happens to be another example of politicians needing an issue so badly they can’t afford to solve it.  Personally, I don’t buy the whole man made global warming issue, but if these guys really believe it is “the greatest threat to the world”, then why not adopt policies that would theoretically reduce the threat?
