A Climate of Tyranny ^ | 20 February 2007 | .cnI redruM

Posted on 02/20/2007 6:24:27 AM PST by .cnI redruM

So why are people so concerned about the state of the climate? I mean really, why are these people so concerned? Do they care about polar bears, baby seals and cute, little Arctic lemurs? Please!

These people have found the ticket to power, the fulcrum of Archimedes’ dreams. They can control what we do at work, what we eat, what we drive and now, how many children we have and which people are allowed to even have them. And they do it all, for the future.

Global Warming is the ultimate mind job. The issue provides the ultimate shillelagh of guilt to beat us into acquiescence to their appalling and arrogant tyranny. Never mind that Al Gore has four kids of his own, according to John Seagar, of the North Jersey Herald:

“Yet, apart from insightful comments by former Vice President Al Gore, there has never been much public discussion about the role of human population growth in global warming.”

Yes, once Tipper was safely done popping them out, Al Gore became adamantly opposed to the creation of new human life not surnamed Gore. But fear not, Planet-Lovers, Al Gore does not stand alone atop the lofty summit of detestable hypocrisy. It seems some over-credentialed moron of a Professor at The London School of Economics, probably also done with sowing his seed and reaping his rich, clean, eugenically superior uberkind, has taken up the fight against the reproductive rights of others.

“Professor Tim Dyson of the London School of Economics indicates that a 40 percent cut by 2050 in per capita carbon emissions in the developed world could be completely cancelled by global population growth.”

But according to Seagar, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Predictably, it’s the headlights of an oncoming freight train of government social programs. Presumably, these programs will tell all us hicks out in Jesus-land, not smart enough to have planned ahead and had ourselves born related to Gore and Dyson, how many children our benevolent state will permit us to progenate.

“What can we do? We know that family planning works everywhere. When women and couples are free to make their own informed choices, they choose to have smaller families.”

It works like Hades in India and China. Those two countries are not accidentally producing too few female children. Oops, I’m sorry. I’m certain that’s not what Captain Planet, John Seagar, really wanted to advocate.

”Globally, at least 350 million couples lack family planning services. Here in the United States, one-third of all births are unplanned. And the Bush Administration's family planning failures, from its Global Gag Rule to ideologically driven abstinence-only programs, contribute directly to millions of unwanted and unplanned births.”

At least he got his liberal catechism straight. This really and truly is “ALL BUSH’S FAULT!™ More abortions, less global warming. Just don’t ask John Seager who would pay for his old age if we were to rigorously apply Kant’s Categorical Imperative to this one.

This is utter claptrap, even in the face of a preliminary data study. No society on Earth has succeeded in population controlling its way to useless dotage better than either Europe or Japan. Not a single one of these countries can hit a Kyoto emission target. By including Japan in this sample, we control for the factor that most EU economic central planners couldn’t hit the English Channel if they fell off a boat.

The demographics do not drive CO2 emissions. The United Arab Emirates has a birthrate that you won’t find anywhere off a mink farm. They also do not lead the world in GHG production.

Global Warming and overpopulation may or may not be problems. We may or may not have to deal with either or both at some date down the line. However, the amateurish attempt of this author to conflate two obviously unrelated phenomena smacks special pleading overreach. It also signals a darker danger that lurks beneath the climate scare iceberg.

Untalented, troglodytic, unauthentic, miasmatic, soul-sucking jerks latch onto Global Warming to offer themselves a gravaman to dominate others. It stops being a problem, in and of itself, and starts being a ticket onto the gravy train of unearned adulation and power.

In this sense, Global Warming reminds me of Marxism. It can’t be coincidence that one got cranked up in earnest scant years after the other was consigned to histories putrid dung heap.

Who thought this up? Do we know? Who was sitting around in a room thinking, "How do we control the world?" And who said, "I know! We'll make them think man is responsible for climate change. Then we can make them do anything simply by telling them it will save the planet."

They would have broken out the cigars on that one if they smoked.

I think it evolved over time. There are some environmentalists who legitimately feel concerned. They get hijacked by the AlGores of the world.

Then these people try for a little bit more each time, until we finally figure it out and shut them off. I just hope more of us figure it out before they really get to decide something important.

I think it evolved over time.

The left hates capitalism, corporations, entrepreneurs, and the wealthy. To the left environmentalism has always been about how the "greedy" control and cheat everyone else. "Global warming" and "income inequality" are the two sides of this same coin. It is all socialistic world government by other names.
