2013 was a wrecking ball for global warming. Avoiding the obvious symbolic incidents such as colder weather, as we look into the climate changer claims none of them seem to be working out. Further, the changers are revising their models.
As someone who formerly trusted media to tell me what was right and to tell me the truth, I’ve become a skeptic about global warming. It’s clear that it is a proxy for something else — or to avoid something else.
On the surface, global warming is a comforting theory. If we just get our carbon under control, life can go on. Further, we can use carbon credits to re-distribute wealth and raise the third world from poverty. It’s happier than Disneyland.
Those with more experience with human beings would take a look at the huge forces behind climate change: liberal billionaires, Western governments, big media and the usual chattering neurotics who call themselves “progressives.” Anything these people like is probably fatal to anything good.
But what could they be hiding?
The salient factor in climate change is that all the solutions are easy. Stop carbon; that’s it. Nothing else really needs change. And this is where we see the sleight-of-hand that accompanies all really good deceptions: they’ve distilled a complex problem down to a single factor.
In truth, the problem can’t be distilled, but history shows us its cause. As humans have expanded, we have taken over much of the globe and replaced its forests with farm fields, roads and dwellings. The result is a massive loss of forest, which in turn has a series of negative consequences.
First, loss of unbroken space means loss of species and reductions in many others as they lack enough space for individual creatures to hunt, live and raise young. Second, it limits the amount of absorption that these forests can do, not just of carbon dioxide but other pollutants and heat. Finally, it limits the amount of fresh oxygen and water that are produced by these forests.
What is the primary driver of deforestation? More humans. How do we know this? We’ve watched it happen over the last half-century. It’s irrefutable because it is history. Unlike climate change, it is not based on models; we have seen that the more people we add, the fewer forests we have. And there’s no way to add new land and plant forests there.
Overpopulation = deforestation. In turn, deforestation means more pollution, species extermination, and lack of general health to our natural world. If ecocide has a face, it is silhouetted in deforestation. And yet the climate changers don’t want to talk about this. Why?
First, it refutes their theories. Climate changers want you to believe that our problem is increased carbon output; in reality, our problem is decreased amounts of forests to offset this carbon. They don’t want to talk about that, because in order to stop deforestation, we have to stop population growth. This goes against the basic liberal method of gaining power, which is to give out freebies: everyone gets a place to live, everyone gets an income, everyone gets special rights against the majority.
Fighting deforestation doesn’t require we do anything. It requires we stop doing things: no welfare, no programs to stop people from dying out where the land can’t support them, stop allowing any immigration, no foreign aid, and even such extreme measures as fewer warning labels and safety features. Let Darwin, mother nature and the Hand of God (H.O.G.) do their work and thin the herd. All we have to do is get rid of our do-gooder deeds which we use to purchase votes for liberal parties.
And therein lies the secret. Global warming is a win for liberals. They get to keep living exactly as they have been, except the SUV gets swapped for a Prius and they use toxic fluorescents instead of incandescents. They will be able to transfer wealth from the first world to the third, buying support there. They can keep buying votes with immigration, even though it causes the source countries to have baby booms to replace their lost population. It’s business as usual, plus they can go to their base and say, “See, we stuck it to those obese bloated rich people using too much carbon.”
But… for those of us concerned with reality, namely that the effects of our actions match our intentions, climate change is a loser. We don’t stop the real problem, deforestation, which is a product of rising human population. And we dump more wealth into kleptocracies that will just continue their environmentally toxic practices in order to get more aid. We’re passing the buck to tomorrow, with a big helping of debt to match.
