More fringe claims

No Comments »

It’s hard to know what to believe a lot of the time. There is so much money and power to be gained by the global warming hysteria that the experts we should be able to rely on for impartial discovery and reporting of the scientific truths are at best blinded by their own beliefs, and at worst trying to fabricate or twist the data to fit their own agendas. Whether or not it’s verifiable, some hackers found data and e-mails between climate scientists regarding tricks to make the data appear to support rising temperatures.

Then, too, you have the poor countries trying to strengthen themselves by their claims of damage from climate change caused by the rich, developed countries. I remember reading somewhere that a small island country in the Indian Ocean was trying to sue the United States because of sea level rises caused by global warming.

Then there’s the recent report by Suneeta Mukherjee, country representative of the United Nations Food Population Fund (UNFPA) that poor women in countries like the Philippines would be driven to prostitution by climate change. Seriously?

Who knows what’s coming next? But it’s a pretty scary time when politicians use something like this to gain power. If the science and the dangers are that clear, you would think everyone would want to come together to do their part. Then there wouldn’t be any need for new regulations. The natural cycles of supply and demand would drive developments in alternative energy and energy efficient products, while gradually phasing out the inefficient and dirty processes and products we’ve been using.

I find it all very transparent when you look at things with an open mind and an unbiased perspective. World leaders just want to use this fabricated crisis to grab power and push us toward a world government. Or in the words of Rahm Emmanuel, Obama’s chief of staff,

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Update: I found two new analysis articles here and here after I made this post, and you can even search the hacked documents and decide for yourself!

UN climate treaty on hold

Thankfully, it seems the UN climate treaty will take 6 months to 1 year longer to iron out the details.  We can only hope that some sense will prevail in that time.

One of the “roadblocks” mentioned in the article is the fact that the United States’ cap-and-trade bill has not yet made it through Congress.  A bill had made it out of committee, but I haven’t been able to find out if it has actually passed the Senate.  Even so, it scares me how close we’re getting and how much power the government is gaining over our lives with no one putting up any serious resistance.

The science pointing to global warming is far from concrete, but if it was, would we really want to give up so much of our personal and collective liberty to avert it?  Do we really think we have that much of an impact on the globe either way?  Don’t get me wrong, I think we should be good stewards of this planet that God has given us and be able to pass on a good world to our children and their children.  But such actions should be left to individuals and their own sense of responsibility.  Government has no business mandating such behaviors.

Toward a one-world government

In just 41 days, world leaders will attend the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen, including President Obama.  With this innocuous-sounding name, and the supposedly noble goal of reducing or eliminating global warming, the treaty many country leaders are likely to sign will instead create a government that will control the world.  And not just any government, but a Socialist government on an immense scale.  Instead of limited wealth-redistribution from wealthy individuals to poor individuals, this treaty will transfer wealth from developed nations to developing nations, in the name of “carbon debt.”  This idea is that developed nations are the ones that have put the carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, so they owe a debt to other countries since they were the ones that caused this global warming crisis.

Much of this information comes from Lord Christopher Monckton, who was the science policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher when she was Prime Minister of the UK.  He made several warnings in a speech to the Minnesota Free Market Institute, attempting to educate the public on the danger of this upcoming treaty and the consequences for our nation and the world if it is ratified.  I think it is very interesting that the mainstream media is not reporting on this much at all, positively or negatively.  The only place I’ve heard about it is WorldNetDaily, my daily dose of reality.  At least there are some people out there who don’t gloss over or sugarcoat the dire situation this nation and the world are in.  If you need any more support, Chuck Norris feels the same way I do about this treaty and our future.

I don’t really know if anything can be done to stop this.  President Obama is almost certain to sign this treaty, in contrast to President Bush who refused to sign the Kyoto Protocol because of its threats to our national sovereignty.  Then it would usually need a 2/3 majority vote in the Senate to be ratified, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see them push it through as an amendment to the cap-and-trade bill already in progress through the Senate, which would only need a 50% vote to pass.  That’s an entirely different, and nearly as scary, piece of legislation that would limit many of our personal freedoms and tax us for many of the things we do daily.

After all of this, I certainly don’t need any more evidence that the global warming “crisis” is, primarily, a scheme to seize greater government control over our lives and push us further toward the path toward socialism.  Now I see that we’re talking a global scale, too, not merely national.  If you’ve read any of my prior posts, you already know that I fervently doubt whether global warming is even occurring, and completely convinced that mankind is not causing it.  The world has actually been cooling since 1998, which was one of the hottest on record.  I just hope we can see some reason before it’s too late.
