The desperation with which the discredited preachers are touting the settled science of ‘global warming’ is leading to more and more absurdity. These people continue to stick with their tried and failed claims, oblivious to the fact they are now being widely mocked for it. The recent headline from the UK Telegraph pretty much sums it up:
The insult to the collective intelligence of those who know the term ‘settled science’ is about as valuable in the lexicon as ‘documented reincarnation’ is magnified by the condescending tone this nonsense is delivered in. Anyone still clinging to this preposterous notion after all these years and all the contrary evidence has no credibility as scientist, journalist or sentient being. Perhaps that’s a little harsh. Anyone who considers the evidence for anthropomorphic global warming to so overwhelm contrary indications as to warrant sweeping global legislation that will result in a massive increase in taxation and government control (with a corresponding devastation of industry everywhere except the developing world), is brain dead.
A sign that the proponents of this terrifying threat are losing steam, followers and their minds, can be found in embarrassing headline like that that above.
Maybe they’re right. Scary thought, but it has to be considered. If they are, one has to wonder:
Are we perfectly comfortable because of global warming?
Are we thinkin’ a couple degrees higher might be nice because of global warming?
Are we going to get a little sweater to put on because of global warming?
Do we wish we had a hat because of global warming?
Is it raining because of global warming?
Would this be a nice day for a walk because of global warming?
Are we drier because of flooding?
And what about direct effects on us?
Are we living longer because of global warming?
Are we getting taller because of global warming?
Are we getting hairier because we’re freezing because of global warming?
Will we all end up as Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) because we are getting taller because of global warming and getting hairier because we’re freezing because of global warming?
It’s time this conversation ended. Global temperatures fluctuate and have since time immemorial. To base our behaviour on the notion that human beings are the cause is misguided and dangerous. It makes enemies out of groups of people vying for influence on policy and the gulf created makes it impossible to effectively come together to reduce the actual harm caused by our actions, namely pollution. Pollution and emissions do have real consequences to our environment, but those consequences do not include turning us into Bigfeet.
