Skip to comments.The climate bugaboo is the strangest intellectual aberration of our age ( The SCAM )

"Dont you realise," I replied, "how silly that sounds? The lowest temperatures ever recorded here in Cancun six days in a row; four extreme winters on the trot in the Northern hemisphere; more people dying in one three-day cold snap in little England in 2002 than Oxfam pretends died of global warming worldwide throughout 2010; wheres your perspective, man?"
Perspective, the Olympian capacity to see events as they affect not just us and our mates but everyone, and not just in the excitement of the present but sub specie aeternitatis, in the long, calm, kindly shadow of eternity: this has gone from what passes for education in the West.
The climate bugaboo, the strangest intellectual aberration of our age, rampages because in the me and now we have cast aside three once-universal forms of learning that gave us perspective: a Classical education, to remind us that in reason and logic there is a difference between true and false; a scientific education, to show us which is which; and a religious education, to teach us why the distinction matters.
With perspective, no one would waste a single second of his own time or a red cent of other peoples money trying, Canute-like, to make global warming go away.

it’s up and i am looking for my Dictionary again.
Lord Monckton ping! Freezin’ my knees in the Global Warming ... how about you?
People will believe in anything... including a hoax that has no real empirical basis to it - as long there’s money, power and prestige involved.
I raised no points from the floor: they said only believers in man-made apocalypse could speak up.
That statement sounds really stupid and desperate to me. If global warming is causing global cooling, wouldn't they be canceling each other out?
It is stupid....and is nothing more than propaganda....to further Global Governance ...which is what this is all about.
Well, that’s exactly what you should expect with advanced Global Warming.
Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory is extremely robust with respect to data. In fact, it is irrefutable! All observations confirm it at the 100% confidence level.
The naked casuistry of the high priests of warmism would make a Jesuit blush.
It’s a Global Warming Freeze!!
Saw this on the editorial list on Real Clear Politics this morning. Maybe common sense is beginning to emerge. Off course, that won’t stop the leftists already in power, common sense has rarely been one of their strong suits.
I would rate it as the second strangest intellectual aberration with socialism in first place by a country mile.
Yep complete control over the population of the world, even if that is done on a complete fabricated lie. What we eat, what fuel we use, how much we use, whether we are allowed to live or die, how many children we are allowed to have and when and on and on.
One of the most pernicious aspects of global warming "science" is the fabrication of probabilities. The alarmists tell us that there is particular percent chance that the earth could warm by 4 degrees or 6 degrees or whatever. Leaving aside the various evidence of natural climate regulation, the probabilities that they present are completely made up. Sometimes they will run a model a bunch of times and count up the number of times they were able to tweak the parameters to produce a certain amount of warming. Or maybe they tweak the parameters once and randomize other inputs, I forget. But either way it is an arbitrary probability, not a scientific measurement error (the only valid use of probability).
So what would global cooling cause?
This is the age of the death of reason.
If North America is covered with 10 feet of snow down to Miami... don't matter that's just weather...
But if it's warm in the Arctic... SEE !!! Global warming!!!
um... why does the weather only matter in the Arctic? I swear Europe could be buried under a mile of ice ... and the global warming people would still be screaming “global warming” as long as the arctic was even 1 degree warmer than they “THINK” it should be.
Excellent. Once again, your choice of articles doesn’t disappoint.
Now we need to deal with the idiocracy just voted into office in California. Without pause, my first suggestion is to muster the 1st Marine Division out of Camp Pendleton, stand them shoulder-to-shoulder and march them north, destroying every eco-fascist scum found. I haven’t forgotten the Army. The 101st Airborne can take care of LA and Berkeley. San Francisco? That’s reserved for Naval bombardment. (Don’t we have an old battleship nearby?)
Of course you may have a better idea.
Antropogentic warming is about control and power. It is a scheme to control more of our life.
Thanks for posting! Merry Christmas!
I wonder what the bearded one smokes.
He asked me to post it...and my machine was available and working.,
Well,...I think he drinks the AGW Kool Aid.
I blame dumbing down education.
People are so uneducated today (including many PhD's who claim to be scientists) that they cannot discern fantasy, theory, and or fact.
They cannot understand that computers and their programs give answers based on the data input as well as the human created program. GIGO is not understood.
For these "scientists", I think they probably do understand GIGO, but they are either so in love with grant money that they unethically cling to a false theory as fact, or they are the stupid anti-human intellectuals like Holdren.
As for many mind numbed idiots out here in the non-scientist society, many cannot understand GIGO or their daily life's challenges. They are so accustomed to accepting the word of scientists, computers, and (RAT) politicians as gospel, that they cannot think for themselves.
We live in a world with nuclear space-age technology but human beings aren't that much different than we were 40,000 years ago. Our limbic systems still put a lot of pressure on us to act on desires for ego-gratification.
If Professor Braindrain's wife likes the good life and/or is on the campus eco-committee he is going to be under both subtle and overt pressures to bring home the kind of bacon she likes.
Lenin once noted that "Everything is political".
And, if one is a socialist, it is. It's just one more article of faith.
Leftists define themselves by their politics. It's who they are. A socialist scientist cannot, in fact, be a scientist. His findings will invariably be informed by his politics.
As we have discovered to our dismay in the AGW "crisis"...
I would even say that most leftists define themselves only by their politics and that's another example of ego-gratification.
I would agree.
They really don't know how to react to something outside their experience...until they determine its political valence.
“This is the age of the death of reason.”
That it is, that it is!
>> bearded, staring enviro-zomb’s t-shirt: “that global cooling is what we must expect because of global warming?”
“I believed in AGW and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.”
What really disturbs me about it is when the majority of people abandon reason that is a cause for rational people to go mad. It becomes a vortex of insanity that even the unwilling find hard to resist. In a kingdom of lunatics the sane man is the court jester.
That one would make a good tagline.
Now if we could just get the Goracle to host a 'summit' in late summer somewhere it would do some good. Houston, Dallas, somewhere blazing hot in August.
We could definitely use some cool fronts during the summer in Dallas
—”I blame dumbing down education.”
Yes, it’s called “GLOBAL DIMMING”
People are getting more stupid across the globe...
It comes down to this: To believe in the current vision of “climate change,” you have to believe that if 3/10,000 of our atmosphere is CO2 everything is hunky-dory and if 4/10,000 of our atmosphere is CO2 there will be hell to pay.
I’m not sure we’d be in trouble if 4/10,000 of our atmosphere was cyanide, much less CO2.
The Global Warming Hoax has nothing to do with science and everything to do with the religion of socialism, the dominant evil cult in our sad age.
That's because when you believe in nothing it's easy to believe in anything.
Something has to fill the hole in the soul.
I like it...
Here's the official definition:
..."Global Dimming" is the IQ result of an increasingly under-educated populace that believes in "Manmade Global Warming".
Haha! That’s good!
And how about simply said as “Global Dumbing”
