One of these scares is real, and will have terrible consequences.
Look at some recent news headlines:
Tremonti Attacks Gore
Feeling a Little Green?
Time to take GM crops seriously?
(Note: In the UK there has been a green-led movement about ‘GM’ or genetically modified foods. The debate is non-existent in Canada or the US, where the crops have been used for years. Of course, the same fools that rail against GM foods also are global warming hoaxers).
Starving the People They Set Out to Help
People are not, generally, foolish. When faced with real problems, most of us seek real solutions. In 1984 Ethiopians were starving and dying, on national television. Bob Geldof famously organized a charity record – ‘Feed the World’ and later arranged Live Aid. Both were tremendously popular and successful because the real problem was easily seen, and people wanted to help. And they did, their money saved lives.
Tragically, almost 25 years after the Ethiopia crisis we are about to have a repeat of horrible images of starving African kids on our televisions. Worse, there is is no good reason for these kids to die. A lot of the reasons that their futures will be erased are man-made.
The global hoax that claims SUV’s (among other things) are killing the planet is responsible for the crime of turning food into fuel. Also unfortunately, these same global warming hoaxers have hijacked the same fund raising schemes that had helped a generation ago with stunts like Live Earth. Al Gore and other leaders of the hoax, like Canada’s David Suzuki, have been ramming their neo-religion down people’s throats and have been making us all feel guilty for living.
Well, now anyone that has embraced AGW as a reality can start feeling really guilty about those about to die for their cause. It’s not just Al Gore and David Suzuki that are responsible for this – it’s the unthinking average joe that swallowed the line being spun out about the planet in peril nonsense. Politicians only change policy toward something like the global warming fraud when a majority of voters give it significance, which is what it has been given by a lot of ordinary people.
Global Warming hoaxers pretended that there was no downside to supporting calls for more and more fake solutions to a fake problem. But there is, and soon we will see the real victims.
Actions have consequences, and unfortunately for the world’s poorer regions, the actions of the green movement already has a high body count.
I was going to call this post ‘Opportunity Cost’, because if we only stood back for a moment to consider the unseen costs of following the global warming hoaxers, we’d all be horrified. Consider all the scientists that have jumped on the well-funded bandwagon of climate science. What could they have been working on instead? What miracles of science might have been missed entirely or delayed for years by the rush to analyze junk science? How about all the cash diverted into the carbon offset ponzi schemes? How many poor people could have been housed, fed and given a hand up with that cash instead of enriching endless NGO’s and snake-oil salesmen?
I may have another post soon on this, but it is a large topic to tackle and almost impossible to quantify. If you think about it, you can insert your favourite real science topic or issue and claim that it was damaged or compromised by the global warming hoax. The warmers do it all the time, why not us on the deniers side?
I you are reading this it’s likely that you are either decided that global warming is a hoax, or you seriously suspect it might not be everything the warmers claim it to be. If so, go to these excellent sites and educate yourself. Then tell your friends, your family and get the word out that there actually IS a debate on the science and that there are REAL consequences to the fraud. You can help to see off the hoaxers and the world can get back to solving real problems, like feeding the planet.
Now that would be a global movement I could get behind.
