I have followed what I refer to as the "global warming scam" for quite some time now and have seen nothing to convince me that it is not a scam. Most other folks I talk to feel the same way. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to discern that the whole game is a collectivist fraud designed to make some of the government's friends even more wealthy than they are now as well as restricting our liberties in the name of "environmentalism." And restricting our liberties is a goal deal to the heart of all collectivist types. It's what they live for.
And so the global warming propaganda continues to flow from the mouth of big government, telling us how we have destroyed the environment with our huge "carbon footprints." Their ultimate solution--shut down most of the industry in this country and go back to cooking over campfires and living in caves. Interestingly they never discuss the carbon footprints left by countries like Red China. I know, that's something we are not supposed to talk about and once they have "neutralized" the Internet such discussion will be verboten.
I just find the propaganda to be, not even humorous, but rather ludicrous. I read an article at the end of January that stated that this January had been the second warmest on record. Where? Near the Equator? It surely wasn't warmer in the South and from what I read of other parts of the country it was colder than usual. As I write this, the usual temperature for this time of year in North Louisiana is a little over 60 degrees. Today the temperature here is 29 and we had an ice storm yesterday. It's not supposed to get out of the low 40s all this week.
In fact, its so bad, even the weather services have had to admit that February has been just plain cold this year. AccuWeather.com had an article on the Internet for February 23 in which it stated: "Additional waves of frigid air will continue to flow southward out of Canada and into the central and eastern United States this week, but there are indications the cold will ease up next week...While the air masses moving through this week are not quite as extreme as that of last week, daily record low temperatures will continue to be challenged. Once again, record lows dating as far back as the late 1800s will be on the table...Multiple locations including Boston, New York City, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Chicago are likely to finish the month within the top three coldest Februaries on record. In some cases, temperatures for the remainder of the month may deliver the coldest February on record and could rank as one of the coldest months ever."
Doesn't sound to me like global warming is having much of an effect on the weather in this country. At least not as much as it will have in July! So, with even the weather bureau being forced to admit that this is one of the coldest Februaries on record, you have to wonder how these people in Washington have to gall to keep telling us this has been one of the warmest years on record so far.
If you follow the Yankee/Marxist "logic" flowing out of Sodom on the Potomac you will be forced to conclude that warmer is really colder, that slavery is really freedom, that if we just spend enough money we can spend ourselves into riches, and that war is really peace. And in amongst all of this political malarkey will be buried the fact that, according to Isaiah the prophet in the Scriptures, there are some who call evil good and good evil, some that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. And it occurs to me that what Isaiah described is exactly what is going on right now. Government is telling us that colder is really warmer and that (our) slavery is really freedom--and they hope we are too stupid to know the difference. In fact, their fondest wish is that we are too stupid to know the difference.
And, while global warming is a hot (pardon the pun) topic right now, the thought, hopefully, will occur to some of us that if they have lied to us about this--the what else have they lied to us about?
