They are not “Liberals” – not even close. They are the nasty totalitarian leftists – Communists! Communism is a typical “one-person-at-the-center” party. Their leader at the top, sole leader, is the face of the party, the focus of all attention, her / his wishes, needs, opinions and demands are being taken care of as if she / he was a queen / king, – NO QUESTIONS ASKED. We saw that in the old Soviet Union under Lenin and Stalin, we saw that in China under Mao and in Cuba under Castro, we continue to see that in North Korea with the (mentally) Ill-dynasty. Their resentment and contempt towards dissents, new ideas (except when it is their own dishonest carefully fitted to their agenda, crafted ideas), facts, even logic and honesty is their weakness and the hallmark of all totalitarian systems.
We can see this dishonesty in the “green” lefts “Man Made Global Warming”-swindle today, and we see it in Hillary’s team and the Democratic party. Their problem is the fact that they have to disguise their true agenda because their only agenda is to stay in power. Now, imagine what would happen if they actually did say exactly that; “I only want to be in charge!”. Of course that wouldn’t happen. Instead we are being feed with all kinds of excuses when things goes wrong, “fake news” is only the latest. Because the “dear” leader therefore IS THE PARTY, the leader’s values, lack of integrity, cruelty, dishonesty etc. permeates the entire party apparatus. That is the Democratic party of today, that is why #Hilloccio lost.
Liberals love to pretend the debate over global warming has been settled. To them, either you get behind every idea they have to save the planet from certain doom, or you’re a “denier” who doesn’t believe in science.
Of course, there are many people who believe in global warming; they just don’t see the need to panic yet. Some even think action needs to be taken, but believe any action should be given a thorough cost/benefit analysis to weigh its damage to our economy.
This sort of reasonable debate isn’t enough for liberals. Often, any argument against an environmental regulation is met with the retort, “the science is settled, 97% of scientists agree.”
However, a new survey of scientists is calling liberal claims of a climate “consensus” into question. From Forbes:
Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.
The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.
You could say this is an inconvenient truth for liberals. It calls their entire narrative into question. The left’s favorite tactic is to silence dissent so they can get their way, but if more scientists start poking holes in the argument, that strategy won’t work anymore.
The irony is that this wouldn’t be the first time liberals are on the wrong side of environmental issues. Environmental extremists love to block oil pipelines like Keystone XL and the Dakota Access Pipeline, even though pipelines are betterfor the environment. If the oil isn’t pumped through a safe pipeline, it will just be loaded on trucks and trains… burning fossil fuels. Moreover, these methods are even more likely to result in spills that damage the environment.
Of course, the truth has always been that the science is far from settled. Scientists have widely different views on whether or not climate change is happening, how severe it is, and what (if anything) should be done to combat it. This survey is just more evidence of how far scientists really are from marching in lock step on the issue.
Reasonable minds can have a debate about how bad climate change really is, and what our lawmakers should or should not do to mitigate the damage. The liberal climate alarmists just don’t fit into the reasonable minds category.
