Reason as the Leading Motive

Links on the Global Warming Cult

Posted by Jerry on May 3, 2007

The most fundamental hypothesis of the Global Warming Cult is that human-industrial CO2 emissions are the key cause of global warming. Well, would these cultists discard their beliefs if this basic premise was proved false? One would assume that if they had even an ounce of honesty and committment to scientific reason, they would at the very least examine the evidence against their claims. However, the environmentalist movement no longer has anything to do with science; it has become a full-blown religion–a cult that stifles any dissent and seeks to censor any opposition to its views regardless of its scientific merits.

See for yourself: Here are some very important and readable links to articles debunking the anthropogenic climate change theory and exposing these cultists and hypocrites for what they truly seek to achieve–the destruction of capitalism and wealthy western economies and the return to primitivism.

Civilization Watch by Orson Scott Card: A very informative article, truly important, and required reading. In particular, the last half of the article, beginning from “Global Warming vs. Climate Change,” strikes at the heart of the matter.

Scientists Claim Global Warming Debate “Irrational”: An excerpt:

Carleton University science professor Tim Patterson explained CO2 is not a pollutant. Billions of taxpayers’ dollars are spent to control the emissions of this benign gas, in the mistaken belief that they can stop climate change, he said.

“The only constant about climate is change,” said Patterson.

Patterson said money could be better spent on places like Africa. “All the money wasted on Kyoto in a year could provide clean drinking water for Africa,” said Patterson. “We’re into a new era of science with the discussion of solar forces. Eventually, Kyoto is going to fall by the wayside. In the meantime, I’m worried we’re going to spend millions that could have been spent on something better like air pollution.”

Jonah Goldberg: Turning Up the Heat on Gore: An excerpt:

As Gore makes it clear in his book, “Earth in the Balance,” he wants to change attitudes more than he wants to solve problems. Indeed, he wants to change attitudes about government as much as he wants to preach environmentalism.

Global warming is what William James called a “moral equivalent of war” that gives political officials the power to do things they could never do without a crisis.

Dr. William Gray, an emeritus professor at the atmospheric science department at Colorado State University and a world-famous hurricane expert, called Al Gore “a gross alarmist.” Here’s an excerpt:

“He’s one of these guys that preaches the end of the world type of things. I think he’s doing a great disservice and he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Dr. William Gray said in an interview with The Associated Press at the National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans, where he delivered the closing speech.

Also, read an interview with Dr. William Gray and an article exposing the media bias in covering Dr. William Gray’s interview.

Dr. Richard Lindzen, Professor of Meteorology at MIT, writes that global warming alarmists have overblown a case that is most dubious at best and flatly wrong at worst. Here’s an excerpt:

[the] risk of sea-level rise from global warming is less at almost any given location than that from other causes, such as tectonic motions of the earth’s surface.

Many of the most alarming studies rely on long-range predictions using inherently untrustworthy climate models, similar to those that cannot accurately forecast the weather a week from now. Interpretations of these studies rarely consider that the impact of carbon on temperature goes down—not up—the more carbon accumulates in the atmosphere. Even if emissions were the sole cause of the recent temperature rise—a dubious proposition—future increases wouldn’t be as steep as the climb in emissions.
