Fraud: Proposed solutions to global warming are virtually identical to those of another climate problem — the ice age predicted in the 1970s. Make no mistake: Fear spread about climate change is about politics, not science.
Be grateful to the undead for doing the work. An anonymous blogger known as Zombie has “finished reading a terrifying new book about climate change” so we don’t have to.
From that book, he (or maybe she) learned that “climate change is happening faster than we realize, and it will have catastrophic consequences for mankind.”
Zombie also found that “there’s very little we can do to stop it at this late stage, but we might be able to save ourselves if we immediately take these necessary and drastic steps,” which include:
• Increasing our reliance on alternative energy sources and using less oil and other carbon-based fuels.
• Adopting energy-efficient habits in all areas of our lives, however inconvenient they are.
• Imposing punitive taxes on inefficient or polluting activities to discourage them.
• Funneling large sums of money from developed nations such as America to Third World nations.
• In general, embracing all environmental causes.
Zombie admitted that there was “a little glitch” in his/her narrative, though. The book he/she read “was indeed about climate change,” but “it wasn’t about global warming at all; it was instead book titled ‘The Coming of the New Ice Age,’ and it isn’t exactly ‘new’ — it was published in 1977.”
Zombie’s blog post isn’t exactly new, either. It was written in 2012.
But it is recent enough to make a valid point, because when the United Nations climate summit closes early next month in Paris, the climate-change solutions that emerge will look just like those from the 1977 book warning about the coming ice age.
The delegates will demand that we cut our fossil fuel consumption; use taxpayers’ money to fund expensive and unreliable renewable and alternative energy sources; increase taxes and regulations in wealthy nations; and send large sums of money from the First World to developing nations.
This is no coincidence. These “solutions” are what the climate scares have always been about. Science? Forget it. The efforts to frighten and bully are a raw political campaign, a fact that Zombie’s post confirms.
