Tic Toc. Time’s running out boys and girls. If you remember, Al Gore told us back in May of 2006 we only had ten years left to save the planet from global warming. He said if we didn’t get it fixed by then, it’d be too late. You know, it’s a settled science and all.
Evidently, Team Obama’s paying attention to his good friend, Al. Get ready, Cap and Trade’s coming to a utility bill near you. Let’s see if have this whole Cap and Trade thing right. The plan is to punish coal fired powered plants, you know, the one’s that every single one of our lives depend on, right? The plan is to tax them for their CO2 emissions, right? They’re planning to tax something that in all reality, is essential for life to even to exist on this planet, right? You understand that, don’t you. Hmm, weird.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the cow farts they’re planning to tax too. What do you think’s going to happen once they get this insanity passed? Do you really believe the world’s going to suddenly be a better place? Fat chance. The only thing that’s going to happen is that we’ll be a poorer nation. And when it comes right down to it, that’s what the environmental wack-jobs want anyway. That way they can all sit around, holding hands, and pretend they’ve finally saved Mother Earth from mankind.
I know, I’m not supposed to talk like that. I’m supposed to blindly follow the cult of global warming. That, and I’m supposed to be scared. It cracked me up during the last Presidential election. Every time a republican brought up the very real possibility of another terrorist attack, they were branded a “fear monger.” Give me a break.
I realize a lot of the younger people nowadays are just too young to remember the, life-ending, global cooling hysteria of the 60’s and 70’s. I’ve dug up a few quotes from that time period to remind you why I’m just not buying into the hoax of global warming. It’s the same crap, from the same people, who want you to believe we’re all going to die from some kind of invisible boogie man. You want to talk about fear mongering. Try some of these on for size.
The world’s climatologists are agreed… Once the freeze starts, it will be too late: Douglas Colligan (1975)
The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind: Nigel Calder (1975)
Global cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause worldwide famine, world chaos and world war, and this will all come about before the year 2000: Lowell Ponte (1976)
The rest of these are all from a guy named Paul Ehrlich. He was an especially cheerful kind of guy.
I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000 (1969)
In ten years all important life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish. (Earth Day 1970)
The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 70’s and 80’s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death. (1968)
This tragedy is nothing compared to the nutritional disaster likely to overtake humanity in the 70’s or the 80’s at the very latest. A situation has been created that could lead to a billion or more people starving to death. (1969)
Five years is all we have left if we’re going to preserve any kind of quality in the world. (1970)
A more recent quote also caught my attention too. Actually, it’s an AP headline warning us about global warming: Omama left with little time to curb global warming… “Cooling” trend illustrates how fast the world is warming. Yeah, that makes sense.
Bear with me here, one last quote, I promise. This one kind of brought the whole thing together.
The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until America will be a socialist nation without knowing how it happened. (Norman Thomas, former U.S. Socialist Presidential Candidate)
And in a nutshell boys and girls that’s what it‘s all about. Maybe one day, you’ll wake up.
