As the huge winter storm Nemo (“nobody” in Latin) blanketed the Northeast with 40 inches of snow, causing power outages to 650,000 homes and a spectacular snow, thunder, and lightning show in New York, the global warming/climate change alarmists will be gathering in D.C. on February 17 to “pressure President Obama to stop the flow of tar sands through the Keystone XL Pipeline, and build real momentum to address climate change.”
It was never about climate change – it was about powerful and moneyed elites controlling our economy and setting our lifestyles back to the stone age under the guise of preserving the planet from human destruction because, in their vaunted opinion, humans are the enemy.
Environmentalists have changed their agenda’s name from global warming to climate change because every time they gather to protest, Nature slaps them in the face with frigid weather and snow. As far as climate change goes, of course climate has been changing for eons and it will change randomly long after we are gone for reasons other than human activity.
Liberals love to manipulate and control everything, deluding themselves that they can regulate Nature. They see themselves as infallible, know-it-alls, omnipotent gods when in reality they are ordinary human beings with feet of clay.
Global warming proponents deliberately interchange weather events with climate in order to confuse their low information followers. I do remember huge snow storms when I was growing up in the 1960s, to the delight of children and the horror of city planners who had to deal with the massive snow drifts and clogged roads resembling parking lots. Europe has experienced the Little Ice Age for 500 years from the 1300s to around 1850, yet Europeans are not extinct and the continent thrived.
The planet is resilient and it does not need the environmentalists’ meddling and control. The Democracy for America says, “To ignore climate change is to prevent progress.” Yet the climate continues to change and we have progressed quite nicely. The only people in the way of progress are Democrats and progressives themselves. A better definition of who they are should be regressives. They prevent or slow down economic development with every imaginable scheme, tax, and regulation that they can pass through Congress. They engage in intense and onerous intimidation, violence, destruction of property, protests, rallies, and lobbying.
“Climate disasters continue to burden our economy, harm public health and safety, and create greater environmental vulnerability.” Disasters are seldom climate related, they are related to weather events.
I cannot think of a more costly and disastrous human vulnerability than daily government interference and control of every aspect of someone’s life because it arrogantly thinks that it knows what is best for the rest of us.
“Inaction jeopardizes our safety and survival on this planet while endangering future generations.” If we are not going to survive, as the Democracy for America says, there will not be future generations to be endangered, will they? The planet and humanity have experienced crippling droughts, surging floods, blizzards, hurricanes, pandemics, earthquakes, tsunamis, record-breaking highs and lows, yet we have survived and thrived. We did not need government to intrude every step of the way.
The Democracy for America group has “united with the Sierra Club, 350, and more than 80 other organizations – plus passionate citizens – to organize Forward On Climate, the largest climate rally in U.S. history.” (Ljubica Sarafov, Mid-Atlantic Field Organizer, Democracy for America, February 8, 2013)
Sarafov continues, “Last month, the President took a first step in the right direction by talking about the importance of climate change in his second inaugural address. Now, let’s get him to walk the walk.” Did she perhaps mean to walk the talk? Democracy for America wants to “deliver progressive change on the issues that matter.” I am not sure who decides what the important issues are, but the majority of the U.S. population wants a different direction for our country and would like to choose their own issues that matter.
The rally is aimed at pushing politicians to “take strong climate action now” because we are “running out of time to take control of our own planet’s future.” Last time I checked, we were never in control of our planet, Nature pretty much does what it wants to do. To think otherwise, is highly arrogant and egotistical.
