Warmists Are Very Concerned That Their Cult Could Be Dying Out

Of course, rather than blaming their unhinged, cult-like movement, which is short on actual science and long on looking into crystal balls, they blame….

(Daily Caller) Environmentalists believe the climate change movement is losing political muscle and getting clobbered during elections by “a well-funded denial machine.”

“We have regressed to a bar so low that it’s practically touching the ground,” climate activist Chloe Maxmin wrote Monday in The Nation.

And part of the reason for the low bar, according to Maxmin, is that Republicans and climate skeptics are making headway in their attempts to sway public opinion on global warming. She chalked up the climate movement’s pitfalls to a lack of organization and the inability to deal with ridicule global warming.

I’d personally love to be getting some of that sweet, sweet, denial cash. I’m sure that most who blog about ‘climate change’ would love some, as well. Alas, it doesn’t pay, it’s just a passion. In my case, a passion against the forces of the authoritarian/fascistic forces of the Left.

Seriously, though, organization? Warmists have huge corporations and large moneyed interests, Hollywood figures (who’re climahypocrites), Democrats, and governments behind them. They get the money.

What they don’t have is the science. They don’t have the facts. They are utterly humorless, and are nasty. And hypocrites. Many take umbrage with my constant refrain about Warmists not practicing what they preach, but, that matters. When people look at an issue and see those who pushing it being utter hypocrites, it’s hard to take those people seriously as being truly concerned. If you’re overweight doctor is telling you to eat better and lose weight, do you listen?

If your mechanic tells you to take better care of your car, and they’re driving an old beater with a bad transmission, do you listen?

If someone who smokes tells you to stop smoking between hacking coughs, do you listen?

President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are not helping matters, Maxmin believes, mostly because they make favorable comments about fracking. The former secretary of state also appears to use climate change talk as a weapon against Republicans, she wrote, rather than something that has placed earth on “the brink of irreversible catastrophe.”

Your average citizen tends to tune out prognostications of doom and gloom, especially when they are far flung, and all their other prognostications have failed.

She pointed to evidence showing that environmental policies made up a total of 14 minutes and three seconds during presidential debates in 2000, and only 5 minutes and 14 seconds in 2004. The number of mentions about climate change policies nosedived in 2012. Talk of global warming simply does draw the kind of attention that it did in previous elections.

Because, really, ‘climate change’ is a minor issue which ranks low on lists of concerns.

A YouGov poll of 18,000 people in 17 countries in February found that less than 10 percent of Americans rank global warming as their biggest concern. Only Saudi Arabians were less concerned about global warming at 5.7 percent.

Another poll conducted in November by Fox News found only 3 percent of Americans list global warming as their top concern. The Fox News poll came out just before Obama met with world leaders in Paris to discuss an agreement to reduce worldwide carbon emissions.

Bread and butter issues will always move people, while a nebulous issue pushed by hypocrites, which seems to revolve around increasing taxes, causing people’s cost of living to rise dramatically, restricting modern conveniences, and restricting freedom and liberty, while giving government more and more power, all with junk science as its basis, is an eventual loser.

    Of course they do, because that’s how they operate.

    Maybe if any of their dire predictions had come true, people might pay some attention.
    But all they do is exaggerate, lie, and act themselves like it’s no big deal.

    The real reason that the AGW movement has been stopped dead in their tracks is because of my group…..literally.

    We have done so much research in South America that its extremely clear even to AGW scientists behind the scenes out of harms way of being ostricized…..

    that the clear cutting of the Amazon rainforest and the clear cutting of massive amounts of vegetation for new areas of urban development over the last 40 years….plus the BURNING OF THESE incredible SINKS OF CO2 has released enormous amounts of co2 into the Atmosphere.

    These are not fossil fuels…they are in fact CO2 but they are not fossil fuels….

    The staggering facts is that with the massive….Incredibly massive use of nitrogen based fertilizers all over the world to feed the population that this too is having a terrible effect on the earths ability to sink co2 as its been able to do prior to 40 years ago when we started seeing this spike.

    AGW proponents not writing papers daily to keep their funding are starting to relook at their research and reanalyze their data…

    We actually stumbled upon this a couple years ago and have been pressing it quite extensively…..I am a proponent of drastically reducing nitrogen based fertilizers along with mandatory crop rotation even if that means subsidizing farmers into doing so.

    theres a long list of things we need to do…but the real facts are these….The AGW crowd is crying wolf against the wrong industry…..and certainly the wrong country…..Brazil, China, india and the USSR combined overshadow the USA and our sincere efforts to clean up the fossil fuel industry.

    Coal, Natural Gas and Oil can be made clean with subsidies and these industries hire millions and millions of Americans with EXCELLENT JOBS AND BENEFITS.

    However all that being said we still have one problem in the USA thats killing the AGW crowd….

    100 percent premium hikes in ACA…..No jobs….printing money to pay the bills….millions more on welfare just to eat…..55 year olds working at McDonalds…STAGGERINGLY HIGH YOUTH EMPLOYMENT, COLLEGE GRADUATES LIVING IN MOMS BASEMENT, A corrupt DOJ….Our military is collapsing…china is expanding…russia is expanding…the middle east is in flames….Millions are flooding our borders taking jobs from Citizens…….

    And the coup da gra….The DNC and the GOP want you to keep voting for them while they both sit around and do nothing…..

    The Corruption in D.C….is so bad that AGW doesnt even rank on any scale till you get down to talking about bugs and wild flowers and Al gore.

    Liam after “massive” ACA increase…… 77% who opt for the midlevel silver plan pay less than $100 permonth
    2/3s of Americans believe that the government should contol the amount of CO2

    Liam you must be living in a Drudge bubble if you are so unaware of how Americans think

  4. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Liam after “massive” ACA increase…… 77% who opt for the midlevel silver plan pay less than $100 permonth

    That’s a lie by omission. Your figure of 77% paying less than $100 is only for families earning under $41,000 per year, IOW those fully or almost fully subsidized by the rest of us. It means their premium is $1,000 a month but we are paying $900 of it. Dope!

    I know this is so because yesterday a cleaning lady from church had me go on a website Healthcare.gov to help her enroll with Blue Cross. Her premium was $877 a month but at her income ($28,000) she paid only $95. Now exactly who do you think is paying BC the other $782 per month? Huh? Who?

    You really, really do believe in a free lunch, Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy. No wonder you’re a leftist you have a complete lack of economic literacy.

  5. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    john, all that means is 2/3s of Americans are brainwashed idiots and you’re among them. As was once said: “One can never lose when betting on the stupidity of the American people.” You prove the proverb accurate.

    @John

    That person living in the bubble sir would be you…Had you actually read my post you would understand that what is stopping the AGW crowd is BRAZIL, RUSSIA, CHINA and INDIA along with the slowly growing realization that clear cutting and burning of the AMAZON RAIN FOREST and the MASSIVE USEAGE OF NITROGEN BASED FERTILIZERS is destroying the planets ability to sink CO2 which has led to your huge spike in co2 in the last 40 years.

    There made that a bunch easier for you to grasp. No where did I say people are not concerned with Climate Change…..What I said was the AGW movement has been stymied by FACTS and the growing realization that their TAX EXXON out of existence agenda is nothing more then a hatred for corporations and not a sincere effort to Help the planet.

    There only 2 short paragraphs…perhaps you read it all this time.

  8. Liam Thomas says:

    Additionally a mid level silver plan pays 50 percent of your expenses with what a 10,000.00 dollar co-pay unless its a cold or the flu or a nose bleed. Once again you prove you and your democratic Mafia types are not for the middle class….

    Why? Because the middle class GET NO SUBSIDIES….THEY ARE THE ONES PAYING THESE HUGE PREMIUM HIKES WITH NO HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT.

    Once again the left RAPES the middle class then pretends its the GOP’s fault and promise to be for the middle class while continuing to pass more regulations that SMASH,BASH and DASH middle class hopes.

    And of course then proclaim the right are racists when we protest your hypocrisy.

    This is from the standardized left wing progressive playbooknow and is exactly the same way they try to attack the gun rights movement. Direct predictions of blood in the streets fail to materialize and they continue to wonder why they continue to fail to advance their agenda.

    Yet taxpayers pick up the other $500/month.

    TANSTAAFL. Just because other people are paying 80% of your health insurance costs doesn’t mean the health insurance is actually cheap.
