    The Leftist Scientific Establishment & AGW

    The problem is that the scientific establishment leans to the left, and when the leftist senator Tim Wirth said in 1993: “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing,” the scientists generally agreed.

    And what is that “right thing.” Well, you could say that the “conscience” of the scientific establishment is represented by Obama’s Science Czar John Holdren, who in 1973 said this: “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States… [we] must design a stable, low-consumption economy.” He said this way before the global warming scare, in fact at the time Holdren was preaching de-development as a solution to global… cooling: http://www.climatedepot.com/2014/01/08/flashback-john-holdren-in-1971-new-ice-age-likely/

    They have been pushing for draconian cuts in industrialization since the ’60s. It had nothing to do with global warming. Marice Strong, the ex UNEP Director, said: “Isn’t the only hope for this planet the total collapse of industrial civilisation? Is it not our responsibility to ensure that this collapse happens?” And Maurice Strong is considered by many to be the “father” of the global warming scare.

    And a huge point about all the national academies of science getting on board with the warmists. With at least a strong super majority of the academy members leaning left, and accepting Senator Wirth’s declaration that AGW policy “is the right to do anyway,” there’s no reason why all of the academies then wouldn’t line up, en masse, in support of the leftist driven theory. So that’s just what all the academies and scientific organization did.

    In addition, we can be reasonably assured that most scientists + politicos + journalists, in agreement with the notion that AGW policy was the right thing to do regardless of the science, generally accepted the 1989 dictim of Stephen Schneider: “We have to offer up scary scenarios… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.” It’s scary really, to think that it’s all fabricated bs and lies, up and down the line. There’s a lot of layers of this onion that needs to be peeled back, but it’s a peeling that needs to be done.

    There is unquestionably without a doubt proof of global warming and I am a conservative .There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the average world temperature is getting warmer yearly. Do not let one bad winter in the Eastern United States mislead you. When The average world temperature is set for the year it will be higher. Look at the evidence. It started with the use of coal used in fireplaces and has escalated at the rate of fossil fuel use. The graphs of fossil fuel escalation and fossil fuel use are identical. That doesn’t mean there won’t be another ice age someday because there will because of the tilt of the earth. It is no longer a liberal vs. conservative argument unless you are the type of person that believes in Bigfoot.

    Srry I want fossil fuel use and average world temperature increase.

    Sorry I meant fossil fuel use and average world temperature increase. I hate typing on an iPhone.
