Anyone who’s had children is familiar with this scenario: The child whines in a monotone drone about wanting something as if stuck on grooves of a record player until either the parent relents or the kid stops out of fatigue and moves on the next thing which amuses them.
These children have grown up to become global warming bleaters. While the notion was novel and fashionable when first trotted out decades ago, the passage of time and evidence have shown that the dire predictions breathlessly tossed out by its exponents are, well, just so much hot air. Not the very least is that fact that the ‘imminent’ and ‘irreversible’ damage that allowed only another few years remaining for the world’s existence hasn’t quite materialized. Even the labeling has had to evolve as the credibility factor gets iffier. First Global Warming, then Climate Change, now Climate Disruption. This of course implies that without man’s influence (and that means western man’s influence ) the weather would be the same and predictable all the time. Meanwhile, the theory’s most public proponents keep buying bigger homes on more exclusive beachfront properties which would presumably be at risk when the oceans rise. As well, the penguin and polar bear populations keeps increasing.
But the Global warming crowd, long used to getting acquiescence from the gullible public still haven’t tired of their monotone bleats. Even as more and more qualified people come forth to squelch the hare brained notion, the warming crowd’s bleating gets more and more insistent. One of the most amusing arguments offered in support of the AGW crowd is that “97%” of scientists subscribe to it; as if science were a democratic process. Long time readers will recall that back in the day, 98% of court Wisemen agreed that the world was flat. Fully 100% of these Wisemen agreed that the earth was the center of the universe. And up until recently, it was widely held that if you did “that” to yourself too often, you’d most certainly go blind. Obviously, if this were the case, no teenager would make it into adulthood with any sight.
In the 70’s. the Hare Krishna cultists were common fixtures at all North American airports. For some reason, they were tolerated until eventually people grew tired of them and they eventually disappeared. Can’t wait for that to happen to the climate nuts.
