The global warming religious experience
Global warming really is a religion – based almost exclusively on faith and feelings – where facts are created and manipulated on a daily basis to keep the flock in-check. I’ve always said man-made global warming is complete vanity, and our friend Walter Williams agrees.
From Professor Williams’ column this week.
The very idea that mankind can make significant parametric changes to the Earth has to be the height of arrogance. How about a few questions because temperature is just one characteristic of the Earth. The Earth’s orbit is another. If all 6.5 billion of us, all at once, started jumping up and down for a little while, do you think we’d change the Earth’s orbit or rotation? Do you think mankind could change the direction and timing of the ocean’s tides? Is there anything that mankind can do to stop or start a tsunami or hurricane? You say, “Williams, it’s stupid to suggest that mankind could change the Earth’s orbit or rotation, ocean tides or cause or stop a tsunami or hurricane!” You’re right and it’s also stupid to think that mankind’s activities can make globalized changes in the Earth’s temperature.
Stop over and read his full post today.
This is the ultimate in hubris. The acolytes and "true believers" in AGW (or is it ACC now?) are self deluding, and it is a delusion born of rampant secularism. I don't believe for a minute that most scientists believe this crap, but they are funded by the simple minded politicians that see this as a quick easy power grab.
When oxygen appeared in the atmosphere around 1.8 billion years ago, it was a deadly poison to the life that existed then. Maybe we should revert to that…..
One of several Research papers on why CO2 can't cause any more global warming.
IPPC uses the old, wrong, information.
While watching a show about the plague in medieval times,i realized that global warming alarmists might be the next wave of Flagellantism, (sent to a friend in november '09).
Glad to see Dr. Williams has similar and more complete thoughts.
Gee, do you mean that religions, e.g. the Catholic Church and others creates/created and manipulates/manipulated facts in oreder to "keep the flock in-check"?
Maybe. But only when the Vatican comes here and tries to make a federal powergrab and redistribute money confiscated as taxes, you could make a valid comparison.
