When the evidence isn’t there to support your agenda, the only thing left to do is use scare tactics. Basically, just keep repeating the same thing over and over again, except in a much louder and scarier voice.
The planet isn’t heating up nearly as much as the alarmists wanted. In fact, some are saying that we’re headed for another mini ice age, coinciding with solar cycles. But that hasn’t stopped politicians from announcing to the world that we’re all headed for certain destruction if we don’t all band together as one world and collectively do something about manmade global warming. There’s no evidence linking human activity to global temperatures, but it’s too late in the game to give up all the political and financial capital that’s been invested in the scam. The only thing they can do is keep on spouting off the same talking points, “science-denier” this, “climate-denier” that, “97% consensus,” and eventually even they may come to believe their own lies. But all they really care about is getting a return on their investment.
California Governor Jerry Brown was in Rome at a climate change conference, talking about how we’re all going to die if global leaders don’t get together and solve this manmade global warming problem. The Sacramento Bee reported:
Pope Francis, who organized the conference after the release of his encyclical on climate change, told the group through an interpreter that he has “great hope … that a fundamental basic agreement is reached” among global leaders.
Brown’s remarks reflected the urgency of the effort, but also its limitations.
“We don’t even know how far we’ve gone, or if we’ve gone over the edge,” Brown said. “There are tipping points, feedback loops. This is not some linear set of problems that we can predict. We have to take measures against an uncertain future which may well be something no one ever wants. We are talking about extinction. We are talking about climate regimes that have not been seen for tens of millions of years. We’re not there yet, but we’re on our way.”
Many Republicans have said the effects of climate change are overstated. As he has several times, Brown called them “troglodytes,” to applause. But the Democratic governor went beyond partisan rabble-rousing, quoting balefully from St. Paul’s biblical message to the Galatians.
“God is not mocked,” Brown said, “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Yeah, he had to throw in a token Bible verse. Politicians hate the Bible, but they won’t hesitate to use a verse or two to add some moral weight to their agenda. Considering that he was in Rome at a conference organized by the Pope, he had to pay a little lip service to the religious crowd.
