Give me that old time religion……
It’s possible the Greens will win. We all end our sorry lives eating dirt, living in a mud hut and slaughtering each other with stone tipped spears.
I prefer the Empire. Every left wing nut’s nightmare. Taking over small oil producing countries and civilizing them. (though I prefer non-violent means)
I and millions like minded people will work, save, and support the only system that has brought wealth of immense proportion to the “common man”. That’s how we vote.
Whether the savages like it or not.
Our ancestors lived in perfect misery until conquered by technologically advanced civilizations and taught to read, clothe, feed and protect themselves. Through the centuries we have modified this system to generate a better life for all. this has been the natural order of things. That’s what people always strive for…. leaving the world a better place for their children.
In the process, a great Empire has been created. Today we call it Capitalism. Most of the world has been brought in, some kicking and screaming, to a life of full bellys, warm houses and clean sexual partners. Where their children dream of gifts and have playtime. Where we live side by side with people we don’t even like. Without fear.
Nothing has done more for the majority of mankind to serve our collective needs. No political or competing economic system ever invented can long survive resisting it.
Capitalism “teaches a man to fish, feeding him for ever”. Those people who embrace the Empire, eat, live under a solid roof, have productive things to do and have the free time to invent religions and political theories to argue over. Those who don’t, die miserable lives. (Africa, anyone?)
The Empire rolls over Nazis, Commies, Religious nut jobs, and just plain old fashion Fascist. Yes, just as the Commies found out, the Mullahs are screwed. Keep bringing their elite’s children to our schools and they will belong to us. Give them “baywatch” reruns. Teach their women to “just say no”. We win.
That’s why they hate us.
Resistance is futile.
Which brings us to today’s topic.
I like nothing more than experts who agree with me.
Fortunately this crap is off the table for now. All we need is to waste more resources on a problem we can do nothing about even if it was real. You would have to shut down the world economy and start over. Not going to happen. Take a nuclear war to do so. However, watching today’s present crisis unfold may get us thinking the system may have become unrepairable. Not a chance. Temporary glitch. We’ll figure it out. We always do.
Meanwhile, history teaches us that Capitalism embraces all new religions and swallows them. Environmentalism will soon be a complete subset of the pantheon we have created under freedom of religion. Which is:
You can believe any damn fool thing you want as long as we can monetize it.
The Founder of the Weather Channel
Eminent Meteorologist John Coleman, the founder of the Weather Channel says:
There is no significant man made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed. But mankind’s activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.
Through all history, Earth has shifted between two basic climate regimes: ice ages and what paleoclimatologists call “Interglacial periods”. For the past 10 thousand years the Earth has been in an interglacial period…. [where] the Earth warms up, the glaciers melt and life flourishes. Clearly from our point of view, an interglacial period is greatly preferred to the deadly rigors of an ice age. Mr. Gore and his crowd would have us believe that the activities of man have overwhelmed nature during this interglacial period and are producing an unprecedented, out of control warming.
Well, it is simply not happening. Worldwide there was a significant natural warming trend in the 1980’s and 1990’s as a Solar cycle peaked with lots of sunspots and solar flares. That ended in 1998 and now the Sun has gone quiet with fewer and fewer Sun spots, and the global temperatures have gone into decline. Earth has cooled for almost ten straight years. So, I ask Al Gore, where’s the global warming?
