So why do the media, Leftist politicians and education establishments keep insisting that we need to give the government unprecedented, unlimited and permanent power over our lives because of
global warming global climate change? See Another failed prediction for global warming: fewer extreme weather events. The facts are in — and they have been for a long time for anyone who wanted the truth. Even if carbon output affected the climate the way the warmists claim, given the reduction in extreme weather events you’d think they’d be asking for increased carbon output.
What they call “climate change” is really just weather. And even if the changes were real they didn’t prove that they were caused by man. And even if they were real and were caused by man it doesn’t mean the changes would be all bad. And even if they were real, caused by man and all bad it doesn’t mean we could prevent them now. (Go ahead, make China stop using fossil fuels. While you are at it, stop them from spying on our military, piracy, currency manipulation, human rights abuses, infanticide, etc. I’ll wait here.)
Just as with Darwinian evolution, belief in and advocacy for the falsehood of
global warming global climate change became a litmus test to maintain credibility, tenure and employment in Leftist establishments. The hypocrisy and falsehoods of profiteers like Al Gore are well documented, yet aren’t communicated widely.
Please educate your friends and neighbors!
The entire climate change industry is a shameless tautology* designed to dupe people into thinking that the only solution is to give the government more power, regardless of the costs. These ghouls will exploit any tragedy, such as the Oklahoma tornadoes, to further their agenda. Don’t be fooled.

* No matter what happens to the weather or the climate, it is because you use too much energy.
We see a lot of misleading headlines and editorial cartoons equating “extreme” weather with human caused global warming / global climate change. It is pure non sequitur. We have a name for changes in temperature, rainfall, storms, etc.: Weather. It can be unpredictable. You may have noticed that people talk about it a lot, and did so long before Al Gore came along with his hypocritical money machine.
For starters, consider that if there are 10 tornadoes hitting remote areas, you’ll heard about it once. If the same tornadoes happen to hit more populated areas, you’ll heard about it for months. But the weather wasn’t different, just the locations where it hit.
See How to mislead with slippery language : Stop The ACLU for more examples of wordplay and data games used to advance the global climate change agenda.
“NOAA Makes It Official: 2011 Among Most Extreme Weather Years in History
Just past the halfway point, 2011 has already seen eight weather-related disasters in the U.S. that caused more than $1 billion in damages
The devastating string of tornadoes, droughts, wildfires and floods that hit the United States this spring marks 2011 as one of the most extreme years on record, according to a new federal analysis.”
The key, of course, is that little word “among” and his friend “one of”. To put some flesh on Mr. “among”, consider 1934:
All regions of the country were over 100 degrees.
80% of the US was experiencing drought.
