NEW DATA IS CHALLENGING THE GLOBAL WARMING AGENDA. THE NARRATIVE EMPLOYED BY THE GLOBAL WARMING MOVEMENT, HOWEVER, IS NOT NEW. THE PLOT IS THE SAME. ONLY THE CHARACTERS HAVE CHANGED. IT’S A RECYCLED MOVE OUT OF AN OLD GOVERNMENT PLAYBOOK…
News stories are circulating the Internet about the fact (alternative?) that the earth hasn’t warmed in the last 19 years. Climate change advocates are attempting to debunk the claim. Meanwhile, other sources say that a decline in sunspot activity is pointing towards the arrival of a new Little Ice Age.
So much data. So many facts. Which story best explains them all? And which dataset is most accurate? It’s hard to say. That’s why the narrative must be simple: the planet is in trouble, and people are the cause. Government expansion is the solution.
It was global cooling in the 1970s. That changed to global warming by 1988 thanks to the Congressional testimony of NASA climate scientist James Hansen. These days, “global warming” tends towards “climate change” to keep up with the revised conclusions that we may actually be headed towards a period of cooling again.
In any case, the push is always the same: “we” must do something. And “we” is always the government. There are calls for increased government spending and regulation of cheap energy sources, like coal. That’s because all that cheap energy is driving massive economic growth.
That conflicts with the population control movement.
The conclusions of the matter have even been pushed to the self-conscious absurd, which was exemplified by the EPA declaring carbon dioxide gas a pollutant. Humans exhale carbon-dioxide as a by-product of basic cellular respiration. So, in principle, humans are now inherently sources of pollution. That’s why we need government planning agencies, employing the world’s smartest scientists, to control what we do and how we do it.
But this is nothing new. The pattern of blaming humanity for creating life-threatening climate disasters was established at least as far back as 1936, if not earlier.
