Hysterical Liberal Intolerance
Hysterical Liberal Intolerance
Obama has officially blocked the job-creating Keystone XL pipeline, citing the urgency of the left’s debunked, scaremongering war on science…which voters rank dead last among their priorities (as usual, it is Democrats who are wildly out-of-the-mainstream extremists).
Never mind the fact that we now have the fewest Americans in the workforce than at any time in the last thirty-eight years. Or that black unemployment has skyrocketed to twice the rate of whites as all the jobs are over-regulated into oblivion or given to foreigners under Obama.
Contrary to relentless tyrant-worshiping propaganda from our post-journalism DNC news media, the Obama economy is a complete and utter disaster.
Shocked and outraged by the left’s Constitution-shredding attempts to silence dissent, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) has officially launched a Congressional investigation into the partisan witch hunts being attempted by the supposedly non-partisan (and taxpayer-funded) IGES institute.
Virginia State Climatologist Pat Michaels is calling this tyrannical, ultra-partisan front group and its appalling attempts to criminalize disagreement “the largest science scandal in US history.” Even worse than Climategate and numerous other abuses of power by climate alarmists.
This complete and utter inability to handle intellectual confrontation on a level playing field is precisely what conservatives mean when they say the left’s scaremongering war on science cannot stand on its own two feet.
The left’s endless crusade to silence debates it can’t win on fair terms recently reached a new low. Alarmists are literally now trying to criminalize disagreement.
From Daily Caller:
Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to prosecute groups that “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.”
RICO was a law designed to take down organized crime syndicates, but scientists now want it to be used against scientists, activists and organizations that voice their disagreement with the so-called “consensus” on global warming.
Charging climate skeptics as organized criminals under RICO was first attempted by a sitting elected official, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. Democrats in Congress also launched partisan “investigations” into those who dared to disagree with Obama’s Constitution-trampling environmental extremism earlier this year.
Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva has even forced people out of university research positions and destroyed their careers for reaching conclusions other than what the “pro-tolerance,” “pro-diversity” ideologues of the left have deemed to be the infallible truth of global warming.
And what happens once all disagreement has been brow-beaten and persecuted into silence? That’s when liberals point out that no one can find any disagreement among experts (self-fulfilling prophecy).
From the Liberal-to-English Dictionary:
Consensus of Experts: When there is significant disagreement among experts; when liberals censor and retaliate against dissenting views to manufacture the appearance of unity, to silence debates they cannot win on fair terms.
Education: Indoctrinating public school victims into becoming racially-sensitive little environmentalists who cannot do basic math, have no comprehension of history, and think the U.S. is a violent, bigoted place that needs to be fundamentally transformed into a socialist “Utopia.”
Yale history professor Timothy Snyder had an article in the New York Times on Sunday called, “The Next Genocide,” equating anyone who questions global warming with Adolf Hitler. Seriously.
Apparently, disagreeing with the left’s scaremongering war on science means skeptics are telling future generations that they have to die in order for this generation to live. But remember, it’s those who notice the left’s endless inconsistencies and fallacies who are the extremists, we are told.
Breitbart’s James Delingpole added:
The Nazis were very green. Snyder got that bit right. They passed the first national environmental laws: the Reich Nature Protection Law of 1935. They were big on organic food (Himmler wanted his SS to eat nothing but). They were into animal rights. (In 1933 Goering said that anyone found guilty of animal cruelty or experimentation should be sent to concentration camps. No really). And of course Hitler himself was mostly vegetarian and fiercely anti-smoking.
As I have recently noted, evidence continues to pour in showing that everything we have been told by climate alarmists has been wrong.
A new study from Arizona State University has confirmed that Africa’s deserts are getting greener. As reported Tuesday by Breitbart, contrary to everything climate alarmists have told us, Africa’s deserts have been “steadily ‘regreening’ since the severe droughts of the 1970s and 1980s,” and this process has already “saved hundreds of thousands of Africans from extreme poverty, starvation and premature death.”
The new findings confirm earlier reports of a consistent “regreening” pattern that was hysterically attacked by climate alarmists who insisted the trend was insignificant, short-term, and guaranteed to reverse itself. As usual, doomsday predictions of the Earth’s climate-induced demise have been greatly exagerrated.
Additionally, NASA reports that Antarctic Sea ice has now reached record maximums. And polar bear populations, contrary to relentless left-wing scaremongering, have actually been increasing for years, not decreasing. And satellite data continue to confirm that there has been zero global warming whatsoever in almost 19 years.
Another peer-reviewed study was released Wednesday that emphatically rejects the notion of man-made global warming as a serious threat. The study, from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, found that the impact humans are making on global temperatures is so marginal that it is actually “embedded within the background variability of the natural climate system.”
From Fox News:
The 1,000 page study was the work of 47 scientists and scholars examining many of the same journals and studies that the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC) examined, producing entirely different conclusions.
Drafts of the UN’s own report on these new data (which is due later this month) were recently leaked, and have been criticized as “highly selective” and biased. The data unavoidably show that temperatures are barely increasing, if at all, despite continuously and dramatically increasing human activity across the globe…and that Antarctic sea ice is actually increasing, contrary to everything we are being told.
As usual, the left’s economy-killing war on science flies in the face of all the facts (as I have noted), yet there is not even a momentary pause in the relentless fear-mongering of these nanny state propagandists and their Luddite environmentalist cult.
A new study in the journal Nature Climate Change has confirmed yet again that everything we are being told by the anti-science climate hysterics of the left (and their relentless scaremongering parrots in the news media) is a wildly-exaggerated fraud.
The study, which compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990’s to the actual amount of warming, found that only three of them were even remotely accurate…and conveniently, all the others were ridiculously biased (by twice the amount in most cases) in the same hysteria-inducing environmentalist direction.
This is consistent with other findings, like that of University of Alabama professor John Christy (as reported by Fox News):
I looked at 73 climate models going back to 1979 and every single one predicted more warming than happened in the real world…Many of the overestimations also made their way into the popular press.
In 1989, the Associate Press reported: ‘Using computer models, researchers concluded that global warming would raise average annual temperatures nationwide 2 degrees by 2010.’ But according to NASA, global temperature has increased by less than half that — about 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit — from 1989 to 2010.
And in 1972, the Christian Science Monitor reported: ‘Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000.’ That also proved wrong.
As I have noted, alarmists have been repeatedly proven wrong on virtually every major talking point they have peddled to perpetuate this blatantly erroneous war on science…including even the claim that the Earth is getting warmer at this point.
15) Alarmists have fallen over each other to smear and discredit dramatically cleaner energy production methods like fracking, just as much as they do all other abundant forms of energy, no matter how many times it is proven to be overwhelmingly safe and clean. The only energy liberals will support is astronomically expensive “green” technologies that fail at every turn and cannot survive without being constantly propped up by government.
12) Democrats have now abandoned the idea of considering any new data or allowing a free exchange of ideas (i.e., actual science) and openly embraced the strategy of simply smearing, ridiculing, and ostracizing anyone who disagrees.
11) The left’s lawless, tyrannical fanatics at the EPA continue openly using data from admitted frauds to justify unilaterally destroying entire industries (which even they admit will do nothing about greenhouse gases).
8 ) The leader of this hysterical mob and its war on science, Al Gore, has had his “award-winning” environmental fantasy propaganda banned from use as educational material in Britain, due to rampant, outrageous falsehoods and wild exaggerations.
5) Scandals and studies from recent years have forced even the most dedicated proponents of the Green Scare to reverse their positions on a number of fundamental alarmist arguments, despite non-stop propaganda on their behalf from our overtly partisan DNC news media.
1) The enormously influential scientists directing this scam have been caught blatantly doctoring data, vindictively silencing anyone who does not conform (sounds familiar), and plotting to set up bogus “investigations” to whitewash their corruption out of the picture (which was already being buried by almost the entire news media).
