“Climate change is about justifying bigger government”

As I noted the other day, more and more people seem to be noticing the reasons behind the “climate change” movement, something I’ve been blogging about for years. When people ask why I concentrate on the political aspects (and insanity): because that’s what it is. It’s not science. Here’s a letter to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

I have to wonder what type of evidence would convince climate alarmists that they are wrong. We have global and Antarctic sea ice areas that are at near-record highs for the date. We’ve had no global warming for almost two decades. Remember the predictions of increased severe weather? They just haven’t come true; in fact, Obama’s presidency has had the fewest hurricanes of any presidency. We’ve gone nine years without a major (category 3-5) hurricane strike, which is the longest period on record. Northern Hemisphere winter snow cover over the past 10 years was the highest of any decade on record. These are all easily verifiable facts. Perhaps by “climate change,” global warming scientists meant that we’d actually see colder weather, more snowfall and fewer hurricanes?

Wake up and smell the coffee. Climate change is about justifying bigger government and more intrusion into your lives, something progressives (formerly know as liberals) have wanted since the turn of the last century. If it really was about saving the planet, the scientists would admit that 95 percent of their climate models and dire predictions have been wrong over the past several decades. They’d also be willing to consider that there may be other factors beyond our control that have a much greater impact on our climate. I don’t know, could it be the sun? Could it be that the earth has gone through global warming and global cooling cycles for millions of years (even before we started burning fossil fuels)?

Facts are pesky things to Warmists. And Jim Craig has hit the nail on the head. This is what “climate change” is about. Another letter in the same paper notes that “climate change” results in lots of government funding.

    Seen the latest Gallup Poll on climate change Teach ? Only 10% of women between 18-29 are climate change deniers. That has got to hurt.
    As for liberals wanting more government it has always been the right wing taht wanted control drsaft, anti abortion, anti gay, et.al.
    What do the progressives want ? well change your light bulbs, seat belts, no ciggies for kids

    Wow, a letter to the editor of the Post-Dispatch! And this is important because….?

    A right-winger in St. Louis gets most of his news from jimhoft, The Gateway Pudendum, so he’s going to spout hoftian falsehoods. Ho-hum.

    And I thought liberal newspapers didn’t publish Neanderthal opinions on global warming. I guess they let this one slip past.

    And neither of these two astrologers refuted anything said in the letter, just more of J’s name-calling. “Only 10% of women between 18-29 are climate change deniers.” Most women, and men, become wiser as they age. They don’t all stay young and stupid.

  4. Jeffery says:


    All the right-winger falsehoods in the letter have been repeatedly refuted. Don’t be silly – you’ve not once been interested in discussing the science of global warming.

    Do you REALLY want to discuss the substance of his screed?

    I didn’t think so.

    You are wrong. I notice that you are posting more, I assume you finished your finals.

    I think you forgot about Health Care, gas mileage for automobiles, age at which you can consume alcohol, gun laws, trying to restrict free speech by calling it hate speech. The list can go on but you get the point, maybe.

    Every so often you hate mongers on the left let one slip by, at least they are being more open minded than you or John.

    I remember when it was the “Conservatives” were trying to control ideas and opinions but today it is the so called “Progressives” who try to stifle speech. Progressives like you are so tight in their thinking their heads start to look like sphincter muscles which makes them a total ass.

    Don’t believe me, ask Juan Williams at the time he was kicked out of NPR and called crazy for not following the Progressive party line.

    “Do you really want to discuss the substance of his screed?” Anytime- but do you think you can grow up and stop your name-calling? It seems you’re the one not wanting to discuss, which is nothing new.

  9. Jeffery says:

    Beanie baby,

    Yes, I’m well aware of the ‘open-mindedness’ of regressive repressive conservatism.

    Google ‘Projection’, Beanie.

  10. Conservative Beaner says:

    I did and your picture is displayed along with the Ass from the Democrat Party.

  11. Jeffery says:

    Google ‘projection’, not ‘smart and handsome’.
