Dumb and Dumber versus Global Warming
February 3, 2011
If you’ve ever seen the movie “Dumb & Dumber” – you would automatically understand the subject matter here will be about those who lack the brain power to do anything but keep their respiratory system moving along.
So it is with jaw-dropping incredulity that I read yesterday’s Wall Street Journal article, “The Carbon Tax Miracle Cure.” What are these people smoking?
Mr. Blinder, an actual professor of economics and public affairs genius at—now get this—Princeton , not only took the time to write an article about the need for a carbon tax, but one of his core reasons for this was because of global warming .
Thus supporting my oft repeated – our educational system is broken all the way through the college and university level. As well as my other repetitious statement, having a degree is no proof of intelligence.
I was reading this article surrounded by various candles, matches and flashlights scattered around me as I looked out my Michigan kitchen window to see a snowdrift that was already nine feet tall and growing exponentially.
I read this article knowing too that snowfall, just a scant two months into 2011, has reached epic proportions and winter isn't even close to being over yet!
I am honestly curious how people like this have a working brain that enables them to even breathe.
Or is it that they have just been living in some type of self-imposed isolation and didn’t get the memo?
No really ! The earth was going to become one giant Popsicle in less than ten years according to the environmental activists at the time! [note, I don't normally use this source but it had a good encapsulated account of this environmental nonsense ]
I remember reading an article from that era where some scientists predicted global famines, assured death of almost all the earth’s crops and a prediction that we’d all be sitting on top of one great big iceberg in less than a decade.
This morphed into the infamous modern “Global Warming”. Ice caps were melting, polar bears were dying, the sky was falling…and this was absolute. There was no arguing with the experts. Who can forget the ridiculous “An Inconvenient Truth” a movie that was so resoundly and thoroughly debunked, in a normal world, the maker of said movie would have become a laughing stock. Instead, incredulously, Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize.
Recently, it was revealed, with numerous firings and “stepping downs” to verify such findings, many of these global warming cult leaders were fudging their data.
NO! Say it ain’t so!
They’d publish the made-up data, because they had a need for it to coincide with their global warming dire predictions. Turned out, the earth was actually, once again, cooling. Who knew?!
To be fair, they did try to rename our imminent climate predictions by calling it “Climate Change.” It was too late though. There was little to no evidence that:
1) There was any dramatic climate change or scientific evidence that there was going to be global disaster on the horizon.
2) IF there was some change, there was no conclusive evidence that SUV’s or mankind caused it.
3) The predictions have little to do with a hole in the ozone layer or CO2 emissions or man’s “greedy” development in cutting down trees or any of the other lefty loony predictions.
There also was another recent article in The Wall Street Journal that in a related type of situation, gave us a bit of an insight into the We Are the World/Save the World mentality.
In trying to find out what happened to the mysterious disappearing frogs awhile back, "Green" Scientist Dudes and Dudettes began to study what could have caused the mysterious depletion of frog population. These poor little creatures were disappearing at an alarming rate and these peeps wanted to save the frogs.
So they studied them. They went to the places these vanishing frogs resided and took samples. They went back into their labs, they concocted tests and then went back into the field again to gather more samples. Etc. etc.
Turns out, in an almost comical but most assuredly an ironic turn of events, the solution to the mystery was a fungus. Not caused by pollution (of which they were already predisposed to believe). Not caused by SUV’s, not caused by man’s mistreatment of the Avatars. It was just a naturally occurring fungus. But here’s the comical catch.
The emotionally charged do-gooder scientists actually helped SPREAD this frog plague by getting some of this fungus on their clothing or shoes. Then they’d revisit the habitat of the dying frogs, directly causing recontamination and spreading of the fungus. Thus ultimately causing more frog deaths.
I want these so-called scientists and nut jobs to stop having power in my government. I want the EPA gutted. I want their offices closed down and all those environmental, emotionally geared kooks to lose their jobs. I want to start from scratch and have a much smaller STATE RUN agency in each state that determines – based on the local needs and environment – what needs to be done or not done. I want it run by reasonable people who use their brain instead of use their emotions to charge their brain.
Better yet – let them go private and not state run.
This is what happens when Godless people think they are the ones with power. They believe some big bang that wasn’t caused by a greater intelligence, led to the order of life and all of its complexities. Just some random “bang” that came from nothing caused the complexity of the human eye or the orbit of the earth around the sun.
They believe that what man has put together man can choose to put asunder.
Thus they run around chasing after dying frogs and birds falling out of the sky actually believing that they can rule nature. They believe earth’s temperature fluctuations are caused by man.
I have a news flash. God created the heavens and the earth. While we as the stewards of this earth must respect all life and creation God has given us on loan, ultimately, it’s all God’s. We don’t own a thing no less control it.
Our U.S. constitution reflects God’s Creation. Our Bill of Rights does the same.
I want the environmentalists to be pushed back and relegated to a position of zero power. Let them of course have their voice. It is the U.S. after all and today, I woke up to a land where everyone has freedom of speech. But I want my tax dollars to stop paying for any organization, any paycheck of any employee of these organizations. If they’re so all-fired important, let them raise their own money. Give ole George Soros a ring-a-ling. I’m sure he’ll cough up a few billion to cover costs.
I don’t want any environmental agency to have anything to do with my tax dollars and it needs to stop yesterday.
I see it this way, that’s one huge way to tame our deficit – stop paying for loony activist cults run by Dumb & Dumber!
