A Snowball Settles it!
By: Christoph L. Rocker
He then points to his favorite climate denying scientist from MIT, Richard Lindzen, as to how global warming is just a bureaucratic scheme to instill fear in the public to get approval for a carbon tax.
This is his typical argument.
He goes on to say that 63% of newscasters say climate change is not man-made. How many of those are in big corporations pockets and what about the remaining 37%? Since when do newscasters understand science?
Rush Limbaugh, Radio Talk Show Host. Climate Change Denier who calls us Environmentalist Wackos.
He brings up the announcement by Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) today of an amendment that “climate change is real and it is not a hoax.” Inhofe say’s he commented that it is “arrogant of man to think he can change climate and climate change is a natural cycle.” He even says that the Biblical scriptures talk about it. He is clearly not living in reality. He is living in a reactionary Christian view of the world that is non-scientific and depends on junk science to prove the Bible as accurate.
He discredits Gore’s popularized “hockey stick” graph to remind the people that 2014 was the warmest year on record.
He has little faith in the IPCC or the UN.
He brings up a 1974 Times magazine cover that say’s “the ice age is coming” and say’s that everyone believed that to be true although it was a hoax! He brings another Time magazine cover with a polar bear under the title “global warming” threat. His point is that these are two opposite predictions from the same magazine 30 years apart.
He supported Whitehouse’s amendment but this whole thing is twisted madly to where he even co-sponsors the amendment now only with some bizarre exceptions. He agrees that climate is changing, in that it is normal for it to change & secondly he agrees it’s a hoax. The hoax is that people are so arrogant they think they have the power to change the climate – that’s the hoax, not the fact that the climate is changing. It is natural, not man-made in his belief.
How much more confusing can anyone ever make this issue? I can see the public being drawn into this convoluted argument and becoming even more confused. It is a complete circus of misinformation and he should be withdrawn from office for trying to deceive the people or at least for his sheer ignorance of this issue.
Below is a simple chart explaining the many negative effects of Global Warming.
Inhofe claims this whole “global warming” issue was cooked up by the United Nations along with the IPCC. He presents facts (the infamous 1999 email scandal) that scientists were purposefully lying and this, in his mind, proves conclusively they were cooking the science.
Since then, we have 97% of scientist agreeing that Global Warming is a real man-made threat and we need to lower CO2 emissions before we reach a tipping point. Other scientific evidence recently suggests that the West Antarctic Glacier is melting and has already passed its tipping point which means in as soon as 200 years from now, a rise in sea levels to 15 feet or more.
Who do you believe? A politician who is preaching junk science or a global community of scientists who are trying to inform the public of this eminent threat if we do not alter our course?
Multinational Global Corporations and the politicians whom they have bought via lobbyists want everything to continue as is and in fact they want to increase CO2 levels for profit. That is the name of the game when it comes to capitalism. The name of the game people are more familiar with is “monopoly.”
Therefore, Cap and Trade is the monster under the bed of this entrenched Republican Christian Junk Science Believing Millionaire Politician, and the “email scandal” is the only proof he has to convince us that global warming is not man-made and there’s nothing to worry about except the Liberal nut jobs who want to scare us into paying more taxes and regulate our companies to the point of bankruptcy.
James Inhofe Chairs the Environment and Public Works Committee, which will have hearings and debates with prominent scientists on this very topic. He says the science is not settled and he will, I am sure, have more snowballs, Climate Deniers and obsolete charts to prove that the Glaciers are not melting because of CO2 and the future is in God’s hands not man’s. He dubs his team “The Truth Squad.”
He closes with remarks dismissing Obama’s 479 billion dollar plan that will not reduce CO2 emissions, allegedly claimed by its own director.
