Recently, Secretary of State
Kerry said the following during a speech in Indonesia: "Climate change can now be considered the
world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." How profoundly-foolish. Comparing God's control, over which we have
none, to man's threat of nuclear and other mass-weaponry, over which, to a
degree, we do. Kerry's assertion is that
man's activities are climate's villains.
With corrections proposed that would severely damage progress, economies,
and individual freedoms. Interesting to
note that Mr. Kerry's alarm-the-world, multi-nation tour is estimated to have
generated over 12-tons of carbon dioxide exhaust, and that's just from his jet
Then, an over-zealous Northeastern
philosophy professor has stated that those who deny man's impact on climate
should be considered "criminally negligent." So much for scientific inquiry and
freedom of speech, among those who won't swallow the kool-aid. Among the credible deniers of man's direct
impact on climate change, is former NASA scientist, now University of Alabama
prof, Dr. Ray Spencer, who said: "The idea that any of the weather we are
seeing, is in any significant way, due to humanity's greenhouse gas emissions,
verges on irrationality." Feelings echoed
by a once-unlikely source, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, in recent Senate
testimony (quote): "There is no
scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause
of warming of the Earth's atmosphere over the past 100-years." Even the man-is-to-blame 60,000 scientist, American Physical Society
is now re-examining its stand.
As with so many issues today, like immigration, environment, and health care, the effort by the left has very little to do with actually solving issues for the good of the nation, and everything to do with satisfying the power and control needs of big-government elites.
