Same old same old

Noted climate-change skeptic Marc Morano testified to Congress last month that after nearly two decades of global cooling, “global warming” activism has been shown to be merely the latest environmental scare with the same big-government solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning.

He said the focus on the Green New Deal proposed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has moved the Democratic Party “into serious, unscientific, nutty territory.”

Ocasio-Cortez recently claimed that unless global warming is addressed, the world has only 12 years left.

Morano pointed to similar warnings dating back 150 years.

He quotes an MIT professor who said: “As early as 1864 George Perkins Marsh, sometimes said to be the father of American ecology, warned that the earth was ‘fast becoming an unfit home for its ‘noblest inhabitant,” and that unless men changed their ways it would be reduced ‘to such a condition of impoverished productiveness, of shattered surface, of climatic excess, as to threaten the depravation, barbarism, and perhaps even extinction of the species.’”

Morano cited British scientist Philip Stott saying the earth “has been given a 10-year survival warning regularly for the last 50 or so years. We have been serially doomed.”
