Based on a recent article of his in Rolling Stone, the event is essentially a lecture circuit based on a single premise: climate change is simple math—and the numbers do not look good. If immediate action isn’t taken by global leaders: “It’s game-over for the planet.”
-Journalist, climate change activist Bill McKibben on his “Do the Math” tour-
They are at it again. I remember in the 1970’s the premise for global warming was that if we didn’t change the way we are doing things, the world would be uninhabitable by the year 2000!. That was 12 years ago now, and we are still here. And, to top it off, most of the changes they were saying we needed to make…..have been made. Proving to everyone if they remember what is being said, the left and the global warming idiots are never happy……even when they get what they want.
This climate change idiot, Bill McKibben is now saying the same thing that the GW people have been saying, and proven wrong, for almost a century now. But they are not about to give up. There is too much money involved in this farce to stop now. After all, they can always find some person to say what they want, and then they can get away with saying it is the consensus of all scientists, without impunity.
Even when someone comes out and refutes what they say, the media will not report it thinking that not reporting means no one will know about it. What a joke. Ever hear of the new media?
The mainstream media just can’t seem to get it through their skulls that the reason they are losing readership is because they do not report the truth. Especially if it doesn’t fit they’re agenda, and the agenda of the left.
Which brings me to the latest thing that comes from this jokester, Bill McKibben. His “global warming is going to destroy this world” tour, inappropriately named “Do the Math” is just another in the long line of people who are trying to force us to live the way they want us too, while they continue living the way they do, usually with the biggest carbon footprints out there; the thing they say is destroying this world.
Remember some years ago, Al Gore sending out photos of Polar Bears who are drowning because the ice they inhabit was melting and they had to swim for miles to get to another? The fact that was never put in there, is when ice is melting on one pole, it is usually getting thicker on the other. And, Polar bears are some of the best and strongest swimmers in the world. Swimming miles to go somewhere is nothing for these amazing animals. They can do it without even raising their heart rate. God made them that way.
The thing that people like Al Gore and Bill McKibbens never say, is that the climate on this earth is cyclical. Always has been. It will warm…then it will cool. But the global warming people are telling us that global warming is happening even when it is predicted that the climate is cooling down. Which it is now folks.
The math, McKibben explained, works like this. Global leaders recently came to an international agreement based on the scientific understanding that a global temperature increase of 2°C would have “catastrophic” consequences for the future of humanity. In order to raise global temperatures to this catastrophic threshold, the world would have to release 565 gigatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Here’s the problem: Fossil fuel companies currently have 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide in their fuel reserves—and their business model depends on that fuel being sold and burned. At current rates of consumption, the world will have blown through its 565-gigaton threshold in 16 years.
To prevent the end of the world as we know it, it will require no less than the death of the most profitable industry in the history of humankind.
“As of tonight,” McKibben said, “we’re going after the fossil fuel industry.”
Now do you see where this is going? They are going after the gasoline automobile! Which means, electric cars again are going to be pushed as the thing that Americans want to have, which of course they aren’t.
No one on the global warming side brings up the point that 98% of our electricity is coming from coal, or another one of the fossil fuels around, another thing that Obama and the left and the global warming idiots say has to go. And what does the electric cars use? Why they use electricity, that will take them 40 miles before they have to be recharged again.
This brings us to the other point. The left wants to take our freedom of movement away from us. Having a car that will go 40 miles before it has to stop to recharge again for 8 hours will effectively do that. Global warming has been refuted over and over and over again. But, that doesn’t stop them from trying to convince us that we are destroying this world’s climate by burning fossil fuels to get us around.
All I can say to this people, is stop being so short memoried, and call these idiots on their stupid ideas for all of us. Every time someone comes and says what Bill McKibben or Al Gore says, someone, or everyone, needs to call them on it and tell them that this has been refuted.
It is a good idea to be good to our environment, and we are now much better at that than we were twenty years ago…..though you will never hear that fact from the global warming people. Because it doesn’t fit they’re agenda. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? The left, the media, Global Warming…all a part of the same thing. The left’s ideal to control what we do, and how we do it. The sooner we get that through our thick skulls, the sooner we will stop doing stupid things like voting them back into office, and listening to them when they spout their idiocy.
If you want to read more on global warming and what it really is, look up Thomas Sowell’s The Great Global Warming Swindle. It shows the proof that Global Warming is a hoax. Always has been and always will be. We are doing what we can to clean up our air. Check out photos of Los Angeles now, as compared to the 1960s. You can see the difference. The air is cleaner now….by far.
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to begin using more common sense.
NOTE: I said that 98% of electricity comes from coal. From the site I was looking at, 42% of our electricity comes from coal….so I was wrong…but, and here is the big one….98% of our electricity comes from fossil fuels….which still poses the same problem. The democrats and the liberals and the progressives want to get rid of them. PERIOD.
