Jerry Brown criticizes 'political lemmings' of climate change
SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 12/15/11 | David Siders

Posted on 12/15/2011 3:39:14 PM PST by SmithL

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gov. Jerry Brown railed this morning against politicians who doubt climate change, calling "political lemmings" the chief obstacle in combating global warming.

"The main thing we have to deal with in climate change is the skepticism, the denial and the cult-like behavior of the political lemmings that would take us over the cliff," Brown said at a high-profile conference on climate change at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

The Democratic governor said climate change has lengthened the state's fire season and quickened its snowmelt, affecting agriculture and taxing public infrastructure.

He acknowledged that Californians have been "squeezed" by the flagging economy, but he said investment is necessary . . .

*Jerry, Lemmings blindly run off a cliff; kinda like you blindly chasing the AGW hogwash inspite of mounting evidence against it.*

“Remember subjects of Kalifornia, the Truth and Science mean nothing. Common sense was outlawed years ago. How we laugh at the primitive ways of the past. What you observe means nothing. Only what is told to you by the government is true! sieg heil!

Are you going to believe your own lying eyes and your imperfect brains, or your glorious leaders who mean to bring you a worker's paradise? Think of what it would be like to aspire to the heights of civilization like we had under Stalin, PolPot, and Ceausescu! They built a perfect utopia on Earth and capitalism destroyed it!

Today California, tomorrow the World!!!!!!!!”

Moonbeam Brown was a dumbA$$ in the seventies and, unlike a fine wine, has not improved with age.

His solution to the freeway congestion back then was promoting a lower population in California by blocking additional lanes/routes, because it was OBVIOUS to him that “..if we DON’T build them ,they won’t come”. That worked REAL well and we are STILL paying the price for THAT particular stupidity.

Now, his moronic followers are trumpeting his drop in the bucket attempts to rein in the very public employee pension that HE personally set on fire during his last reign.

It doesn’t matter what new evidence of crooked data used by the warmists is revealed, the opportunity to expand control is WAY too golden for the likes of the Browns, Schwartzentraitor, Peolsi, Reid, Ob, et al to pass up.

Maybe this is part of the new leftist doublespeak.

For example, when leftists propose a wildly radical change, with untested and unproven, or even disproved socialist ideas, they bitterly accuse those who are *opposed* to their radical change as being “radicals”. With expressions such as “radical conservatives”, a ridiculous oxymoron.

So what Jerry Brown has done is to call those who *don’t* want to act like lemmings, jumping off the cliff with expensive, and generally worthless, radical environmentalist ideas, “lemmings”, as if by *not* being a radical, it somehow makes them “radical”.

But liberals have long seemed very confused about such things, calling radical socialist agitators advocating violence, “moderate activists”, and things like that.

Oh, this is rich. Old Jerry talking about lemmings. A weasel talking about lemmings. Good one, Jer. Have you been singing “Ben” again? A love song to rats.
“Ben, the ice is melting at the pole.
We need more people on the dole.
If you ever look behind
And Barney Frank’s what you find
There’s something you should know
Barney wants a blow
From Jer
Like Jer.”

He did that years ago and the brain-dead liberal voters here in CA re-elected him anyway. Stop the world, I want to get off...

Yeah, while that's true, you really should give him credit for the great job he did in making the city of Oakland what it is today.

(Do I really need a /sarcasm tag after that statement?)

Exactly. If there’s a lemming connection to be made here, it would be the looney global warming Left.

Man made global warming being debunked, good old Jerry damns us for not joining him on his trek to the worker’s paradise.

Mister Brown, who has a BA from UC Berkeley in "classics", and a law degree from Yale has no (no) background whatever in the sciences (atmospheric or otherwise.)

As a professional scientist, I recall learning that it is the very best part of the scientific method that hypotheses are developed by unbiased and careful observation, then rigorously tested; and, further testing is always welcome (and invited).

Polical correctness for what arguably does not qualify as an hypothesis is the precise opposite of the scientific method.

I'm embarrased that so many of my fellow "scientists" (and others who should know better) are unwilling to be professional regarding this critical topic

After this winter anyone who tries to push Global Warming may be laughed out of the state. We needed gloves today due to the cold down here in the IE of So Cal. According to forecast models, in one week, next Thursday and Friday night, almost the entire IE will be at freezing. And parts of Los Angeles will be freezing. Here is the prediction. Red line is where the freezing line begins. Map is for Friday night the 23rd-24th. Also looks like most of the Bay Area up north and large areas of San Diego will be freezing.

Note - About 3 hours after post that map link will be set 3 hours ahead and point to Saturday 24th during the warmer day. So link is only good for an hour or two from post time.
