Climate Change Scammers’ Worst Week Ever

Between global warming suckers getting entombed in ice while trying to prove the Antarctic ice cap has melted to most of America doing a Frigidaire impression, the entire façade of this bogus leftist power grab is crumbling.

Understand that the climate change meme is simply the latest attempt by leftists to trick society into remaking itself in their image. It was never about science. It was always about power and money.

The scammers have been ably assisted by a palace guard media that eagerly reports the scammers’ every lie while ignoring every inconvenient truth. You’ll skim the mainstream media in vain for the reason behind the trapped expedition’s trip to the Antarctic. And, of course, the most inconvenient truth of all is that it hasn’t gotten significantly warmer since the industrial revolution started generating CO2, and it hasn’t warmed at all in recent years.

The left’s use of pseudo-science as a means to seize and centralize control has a colorful history. One particularly colorful scheme was the progressive nightmare of eugenics. Leftist icons like Margaret Sanger eagerly advocated it as a tool to eliminate infants of color.

Let’s fast forward to the 1970s, when we were entering a new ice age and the only possible solution was – surprise – more government power. The global cooling panic morphed into the global warming panic. Suddenly, temperatures were inexorably rising and the ice caps were melting. In fact, they should be melted by now.

But “global warming” is problematic when the uncherry-picked evidence shows that the Earth is not getting significantly warmer. The hockey stick is stuck. Now, one might take this new evidence and revise one’s conclusion to conform to the observed data. We call that science. But we are dealing with “science,” and when the evidence doesn’t support your conclusion you change the name of the phenomenon.

Hence, “climate change.” Its goal was stop us wacky literalists from being able to point to a lack of warming to disprove global warming. Apparently, we were fools to expect that what the scammers called “warming” might involve warming.

“Climate change” is useful because it minimizes the dangerous possibility of negating the theory through observation. Any kind of change in the weather is “climate change.” That means literally any evidence supports the theory. If you really want to tick off a scammer, ask him what piece of observable data would lead him to conclude that his climate change theory is incorrect.

Of course, in science, an unfalsifiable theory isn’t a theory at all. But in “science,” you aren’t really talking about theories. You are talking about politically necessary conclusions that are beyond question. “Science” is a religion, and we’re the heretics.

But even “climate change” has become problematic. What if the climate is not changing for the worse? Recent years have seen fewer hurricanes, and of less intensity. The Antarctic ice the penguins stood on while laughing at the trapped ship of fools was manifestly still there. Polar bears continue to wander the northern wastes uncooked.

So the left has now moved to an even vaguer, less empirically assessable concept – looming “climate collapse.” It’s a beautiful notion, at once evoking some sort of horrendous catastrophe while offering absolutely no way to evaluate its accuracy. The “climate collapse” remains off in the future, vague and ambiguous, an unspecified disaster where something bad might happen and no one can prove the negative, so there is no way to judge it to be fact or fiction.

This is “science.” And if you doubt that something of an undefined nature might possibly occur at some unknown point in the future and maybe have unexplained negative effects, you reject “science” in all its forms. You also probably believe in God and are definitely racist.

Climate change scam arguments pique my lawyerly interest as exemplar tactics, techniques and procedures in the art of obfuscation. But the nomenclature isn’t the only bit of dissembling. The scammers attempt to intertwine the idea that human activity has some sort of impact on the climate with their demand that we transfer to their control trillions of dollars and much of our sovereignty. They intentionally erase the distinction between the cause of the alleged problem and the proposed solution, neatly skipping the effect.

Energy Department chief hails green loans a ‘terrific success’ | WashingtonExaminer.com

Ernest Moniz was elected unopposed in May 2013 as Obama’s energy secretary. His primary task, to accelerate “the transition to a clean energy economy by developing a smart “green” electric grid, promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy through a “Race to the Top” program, and furthering other critical energy projects.” Fred Krupp, President, Environmental Defense Fund.

Obama noted on the confirmation of Moniz, “He also shares my conviction that the United States must lead the world in developing more sustainable sources of energy that create new jobs and new industries, and in responding to the threat of global climate change.” President Barack Obama.

The Obama administration’s quest to take America back the stone age with a ‘clean energy economy’ has certainly started in ‘ernst’. Picking winners and losers in the energy market has cost taxpayers billions of dollars. The rate of failure, corruption and cronyism, within the companies receiving the subsidies is substantial :

(Reuters) – Ecotality Inc, a maker of charging stations for electric cars that won a $99.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy four years ago, has filed for bankruptcy protection and said it plans to auction its assets next month. More »

Fisker Automotive

Despite Receiving Millions Of Dollars Through Taxpayer Support, Fisker Automotive Is “Exploring” Bankruptcy And Will Furlough Its Workforce

In 2009, Fisker Was Awarded $529 Million From The Obama Administration’s Department Of Energy Loan Program. “The company was founded in 2007 and drummed up about $1.2 billion in private financing. In 2009, Fisker also won a $529 million federal loan as part of an Obama administration program to spur advanced vehicle development.” (Deepa Seetharaman, “Fisker Puts U.S. Workforce On Furlough This Week,” Reuters, 3/27/13)

A123 Systems

The Bankrupt A123 Systems Received $249 Million Of Taxpayer Money From Obama’s Department Of Energy Loan Program. “The Department of Energy awarded A123 a $249 million grant in 2009, of which the battery maker had received $133 million when it filed for bankruptcy. The effects of the bankruptcy extended beyond the company. A123 was the battery provider for DOE-loan recipient Fisker Automotive, which ceased production last year.” (“Embattled DOE-Grant Recipient Changes Name From A123 To B456,” Washington Free Beacon, 3/28/13)

More Failures From Obama’s Green Energy Loan Program – GOP

Would Moniz call all that a “terrific success” if it were his own money?

The socialist left, never afraid to risk, bet, lose and waste other people’s money, protected by the sanctimonious tower of ‘morality’.

Socialism

Or as Margaret Thatcher so aptly put, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money [to spend].” or “Eventually, Socialists run out of other peoples’ money [to spend].”

Obama Wants You To Believe In His $16.75 Trillion Debt

Bush increased the debt to $8.8 trillion in eight years, and that was bad. So Obama increased it to $16.75 trillion in four years – and that is good.

US National Debt

And Senator Obama’s own words on the ‘campaign’ trail in 2006 :

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a Sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. …Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here’. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and Grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

– Senator Barack Obama – March, 2006

Obama rallied against deficits before he became a radical, record-breaking, big socialist spender :
