If you were anywhere near the Midwest or East Coast at the end of January, you know we had some frigid temperatures.
The weather was so cold, that some cities just shut down to stay warm!
Despite this obvious evidence, climate alarmists continue to shriek. They claim, right now, that 2018 was one of the WARMEST year ever. But the facts tell a different story.
So, what’s the big deal about climate change? I mean, why are so many conservatives—including the President of the United States—so skeptical? Shouldn’t we care if the planet is in danger? Isn’t keeping humans alive a top priority for everyone?
Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. The truth is, climate change just can’t be proven. At least, the idea that humanity’s industrial advancements are contributing to rising temperatures that will—eventually—end all life. Democrats and environmentalists have been pushing this idea for a long time.
But time and again their Doomsday predictions never come true. Some alarmists said 2005 would be “the point of no return.” It didn’t happen. Then they said 2010. Then 2015. Time and again, their end of the world scenario never occurs. Maybe it’s because… they’re full of crap!
Climate alarmists have been pushing this hysteria for years. Not because it contains a grain of truth. But because they want to scare people into accepting their political agenda. Climate “scientists” work for government agencies. Or they get their funding from the government. They have a financial interest in pushing these ideas.
On top of that, Democrats in government push climate change so they can justify massive expansions of the federal government. To the point where your personal freedoms no longer exist. Right now, stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—a newbie representative—is pushing a radical proposal meant to fight climate change. The idiotic plan would destroy our economy and end our way of life. All in the name of fighting “global warming.”
Oh, and it would also put all the wealth of the country into the hands of the very people pushing the proposal. Hmm… you don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to decipher what’s really going on.
Climate change is simply a ruse to give the government—a government run by radical leftists—more power. Environmental regulations passed by former President Barack Obama crippled our economy. He set rules so strict, major industries couldn’t even turn a profit. His rules demanded a cut back on emissions, new expensive equipment, or unrealistic standards. All aimed at making it impossible for private companies to make money.
That, in turn, damaged our economy on an unprecedented scale, putting thousands out of work. The moment Donald Trump took office, he overturned many, if not all, of these rules. Suddenly, our economy exploded to life. Or did you think the historic economic gains of the last two years happened by magic?
The ultimate goal of climate alarmists is to push socialism. To set strict laws preventing even private citizens from owning land—a cornerstone of liberty. Companies and individuals will be subject to severe control by the government, the exact opposite of our Found Fathers’ intentions.
That’s why Democrats keep pushing it. Even when the average person could look outside and see their claims are bunk, they still push it.
To combat the bad news brought on by the Polar Vortex, climate alarmists this week pushed a story that 2018 was the fourth warmest year on record. That strongly implies that the earth is getting warmer, right? But there is plenty they refused to say.
The planet is cooling. Clearly this isn’t something the alarmists want you to hear, especially when they’ve got a shiny, expensive, new bridge to sell you with Green New Deal stamped on the side.
So to help out, the Climate Industrial Complex has played its usual trick of ramping up the climate scaremongering…
“Global temperatures in 2018 were 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit (0.83 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1951 to 1980 mean, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.”
“While 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record, British meteorologists are predicting the next five years will be much hotter, maybe even record-breaking.” [Source: Breitbart]
Climate alarmists do this all the time. They make wild predictions that never come true, just to scare you.
They ignore deliberate facts like this one:
But look at those scary claims more closely and you’ll notice something they would rather you hadn’t noticed: If 2018 is not as hot as 2016, 2017, and 2015, that means the planet is cooling not warming.
In truth these “hottest year evah” claims are pretty meaningless anyway…
“While such years as 2005, 2010, 2014, and 2015 were declared the hottest years by global warming proponents, a closer examination revealed that the claims were based on year-to-year temperature data that differs by only a few hundredths of a degree to up to a few tenths of a degree.” [Source: Breitbart]
What does that mean? Climate “scientists” make huge claims that the earth is getting warmer from year to year. But the differences in temperature are so small, they fall below the margin of error. Meaning, their boasts are bullcrap.
Not only that, but different tools used to measure global temperatures produce different results. There isn’t even a clear way to effectively measure the temperature of the entire planet.
Think about it. Is the thermostat in your house always 100% accurate? Sure, it might say 73 degrees, but it feels much hotter in your bedroom! If we can’t even properly calculate the temperatures of a house—how are we going to calculate the vastly different temperatures across the planet? Creating an average that can be used to determine global temperature trends?
And then, take those questionable measurements as facts to push a climate change agenda? Which would force our government to pass laws that put families out of work and dramatically raise the price of energy, food, and everything else?
Hmm… I’m thinking President Trump is on the right track by questioning these con artists.
The fact remains that over the last forty years, the United States has done a tremendous job protecting our planet. We’ve reduced pollution and smog and looked out for our citizens. But that’s not good enough for climate alarmists. Much like every other leftist group, they ignore the progress we’ve made in order to push their toxic agenda.
And for that reason alone, we should ignore them.
