Last Man To Walk On The Moon

Harrison Schmitt was the last man to walk on the moon, just over 40 years ago. This is what he has to say about global warming and the environmental movement.

“The CO2 scare is a red herring … the global warming scare is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision-making,” and that scientists who might otherwise challenge prevailing views on climate change dare not do so for fear of losing funding.”

“I think the whole trend really began with the fall of the Soviet Union. Because the great champion of the opponents of liberty, namely communism, had to find some other place to go and they basically went into the environmental movement.”

Harrison Schmitt – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Harrison Schmitt is right, “the great champion of the opponents of liberty, namely communism, had to find some other place to go and they basically went into the environmental movement.”

    However, for reasons given below, the survival of totalitarian communism was assured after WWII ended by the formation of the United Nations on 24 Oct 1945

    On top of earning a PhD from Caltech, Harrison Schimitt is also an ex-Senator from New Mexico who knows what he’s talking about. These elitist over-educated softies on the left idealized communism, and they continue to do so. From Obama to Ayers they cherish the idea of going deep into radicalism. If only they had congressional support, or they could force a tyranny upon us, we would be in for it. Wattsupwiththat did a piece on renewables causing the price of electricity to rise by 61% iin Germany. I repeat my comment here because I think it relates to the radical solutions that these ecoloons and common leftists pine for:

    That could happen here. Indeed, that is the plan. “Under my plan the price of electricity will necessarily skyrocket” Obama said. Well, O’s full plan hasn’t been implemented yet, but what if the Republicans take a drubbing in the 2014 elections? Then his full plan would likely be implemented. And a measly 61% increase is not what they want. Does 61% sound like skyrocket? Not at all. I’ve heard that those in charge of our energy policy like Stephen Chu and O would like to see electricity at $2 a kilowatt hour (vs. ~ 12 cents now). Because that would force us to conserve big time. And force a lot of people to drop electricity altogether. Then we start to see some of the de-industrialization that they call for.

    “Everything we have developed over the last 100 years should be destroyed.” -Pentti Linkola, Finnish Ecologist

    “Scientists say an ice core taken from almost three kilometres down in the Greenland ice sheet has given them an extraordinary vision of what the planet could look like as it heats up.

    The ice core dates from the last warming period around 120,000 years ago, and it identifies temperatures which are about four degrees Celsius higher than now.

    Surprisingly, it revealed that the Greenland ice sheet was more resilient than previously thought.

    Dr Rubino says the team found that the last interglacial period “was eight degrees warmer than today.”

    “Eight degrees warmer is a big difference and it’s actually bigger than it was previously thought to be,” he said.”

    Oh oh! Now Australian CSIRO scientists are starting to find out that Global Temperature and Sea Level has nothing to do with CO2. I can’t wait for the Australian Climate commissioner to recommend repealing the Carbon Tax.

      Steve,

      While the media spin in the story is still about GHG’s causing warming, the embedded scientific statements say the opposite.

      Earth was up to 8 degrees warmer when CO2 was 250 ppm.

      Sea Level was 4-8 metres higher, when CO2 was 250 ppm and water didn’t come from Greenland melting.

      I’ll have to sell my holiday unit timeshare in Antarctica before this news gets out.

    Is he really saying that AGW avocates are ex communists or people who supported communism?

    Ridiculous.
