There is a myth about global warming, perpetuated by the media, that AGW does not have a political motive. I’ve had several commenters complain here that the politics are not right vs left they are on both sides. Tom Fuller would be a great example of someone on the left who sees that AGW is a bad argument. However, in no case does any aspect of politics unilaterally keep people of another general view at 100% disagreement. The fact that some agree or disagree does not change the reality that AGW is fully and completely about leftist politics.
You can tell it’s about politics because of the political history of the top people involved, but more importantly – the solution. Everything is an emergency, democracy is too slow, we must act now to tax and redistribute. Policies which are foolish in the extreme, and when our current economic situation (worldwide) collapses further (which it will) ,will it be evil capitalism or the corrupting influences of small minded socialist politicians sticking their evil fingers ever deeper into the heart of our society.
Children with American flags on their shirts sent home from school.
Automatic guilt in courtrooms with only the hints of justice.
Ignoring of the US constitution in favor of government services.
America and the UK are becoming hell for people of reasonable mind, but there is nowhere to run to. Every liberal immigrant had their own utopia in the country from which they ran, yet they come here and try again. Every tax added is another fools errand to redistribute wealth away from the people they aspire to be.
How many of us in the United States know people that under Obama haven’t even bothered to seek a job? –– think about that!! Their unemployment was just extended — for months. Do we have the money at 100 billion dollars a month defecit. One hundred BILLION. Think about that, 300 million Americans, all broke, and yet we are spending 100 billion more in our CENTRAL government alone PER MONTH than our income can support. That’s 333 dollars PER PERSON per month. If you have a 4 person family, then in order to support LEFTIST policy you need to send an additional 1332 USD PER MONTH to the government on average to continue the process. THIS WILL NOT CONTINUE FOR LONG!!
You know the answer they’ll come up with soon – raise taxes on the rich. The mysterious rich – IOW, the overstressed corporations who hire us.
It’s insane, the whole concept that socialism might work in the US, we already have the answer, but half of you don’t know it yet, half of you aren’t smart enough to figure the obvious out. You don’t even realize that we’ve already gone way way too far. Jeff I’m optimistic America can do anything. People are people, the system is what made America great, not subversion, manipulation corruption and political payoff.
The left will kill this country, the current ‘alleged’ right will too. People bashed Bush for all kinds of reasons, in my opinion, his biggest downfall was that he couldn’t resist the money. Besides massive increases in government education and military, there was the pre-planned bailout of central banks. It was pre-planned too. He and the allegedly conservative congress, couldn’t stop the spending.
AGW is about increasing spending, it will fail even if the favorite policies of the left are enacted, but it will hurt. If Gavin’s favorite solutions are enacted, we will have more CO2 released than any of them ever imagined. There will be no money to do anything else. We’ll burn the damned trees to keep our families warm and shoot the bald eagles if we need to eat.
Leftist scientists like Gavin and Briffa, don’t even know they are being used. It’s all a good idea to the protected elite, but America has reached the limit under Obama, Pelosi and Reed, the constitution is a rag without a home. A document to be reinterpreted for ever greater central government power, ever greater control and theft of our money. It is theft too, it’s your damned money not theirs!
Wake up America, the end is neigh. Or will the next economic collapse, just be another emergency which requires more government intervention, mass unemployment and wide spread poverty.
Maybe Muslim is the answer, at least they’re pragmatic.
I’ve had my say, it needs to be said because there are too many who don’t see the obvious. We have far far far too much central government control, business, taxation, education, health, road, military, science, university —- too damned much. It’s gone way past a close call at this point and agw is just another rock in the cobblestone walk to the peoples republic.
BTW, I’ve had the privilege of listening to the most ignorant of the peoples republic laugh at us for our folly. Stupid little girls with no concept of the world politics other than their own govt. controlled information sources laughing, at us, and our governments change to socialism. Not for the definition of ‘is’ either.
