Global warming has become one of the most popular hammers used by the left to pound on those of us on the right. Their insistence that we're wrong and they are right has become so pervasive it has become the basis for mass hatred of our ideology. This has never been more clear to me than when I read this article by Dave Lindorf posted in the Boston Herald. Not only is he a firm believer in the most extreme predictions of global warming, his hatred for people who differ in opinion from him is all encompassing. His prediction that much of America will be flooded or uninhabitable within the lifetime of his cats fly in the face of logic and science. It would be easy to dismiss this fool if his hatred and exaggerated predictions were not repeated so often. I recommend you read the article and keep in mind that this global warming is about political change, not saving the planet.
The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
With global warming we have a system in place that can lead to the end of so many things we take for granted these days. A group of leftists extremists invented, I would say they hijacked the science but in fact they invented it solely for the purpose of scaring the world into accepting their philosophy.
The area that will by completely inundated by the rising ocean—and not in a century but in the lifetime of my two cats—are the American southeast, including the most populated area of Texas, almost all of Florida, most of Louisiana, and half of Alabama and Mississippi, as well as goodly portions of eastern Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
When you challenge people on global warming you're often faced with many accusations including failure to understand the science, yet when you look at the history of the world it has been about global change. Where I sit at this very moment was under a mile of ice just 20,000 years ago. People used to hunt mammoths and run from Sabre tooth tigers. The seas were low enough that we could walk from Alaska to Russia, most of Europe lived in caves. Around 1000 years ago it was warm enough that Vikings farmed in Greenland these farms are now being discovered as the glaciers recede. At the same time England was prime wine country. Then we entered a period known has the little ice age, even having the "year without a summer". And all this happened without a single S UV on the road.
When I was a teenager at home I remember watching Barney Miller, one of my favorite cop shows of all time, a suicidal environmental extremists broke into the police station and threatened to kill himself by drinking poison (red food dye) Did you ever wonder why there were no red M&Ms? And why did this man take such drastic measures... to prevent the next ice age. This was a real fear for many and the science backed up the belief. The fact is we are fairly new to the idea of understanding how things work. Not to mention that right now on Mars and Venus we are also finding global warming. If our neighbors are experiencing the same symptoms but do not have SUVs perhaps SUVs are not the cause. I say take the time to better understand the causes and root of the problem. Beginning changes is not a bad idea, in fact saving gas and energy is a very good idea, but abandoning all our progress for unknown, and possibly negative consequences. If we allow people to use global warming to silence their political adversaries and push unpopular ideas and agendas then we will certainly find nothing but hard times and political prisoners.
...but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
The label of global warming denier is being bandied about, well I wear that label proudly.
