Trump Has To Care About ‘Climate Change’ To Save U.S. Infrastructure Or Something

People in cults always have to drag their cultish beliefs into everything. Here’s another case, where CNN Money runs a thinly veiled opinion piece as news

If Trump wants to save U.S. infrastructure, he needs to care about climate change

President Trump wants to make America’s roads, bridges and tunnels great again. But the Trump administration’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan could be wasted if it ignores the predicted effects of climate change.

Extreme heat could cause pipes to crack, or melt asphalt. Airports below sea level could be flooded. Communities could relocate because of drought or heat, putting pressure on transportation systems and reducing the relevancy of others. Extreme weather could cause flooding of inland roads, and storm surges could flood highways on the coasts.

Why are airports below sea level? Pretty stupid planning, wouldn’t you say? But, hey, this is about scaremongering. Nothing more, nothing less.

Climate scientists predict more bouts of extreme weather and larger swings in temperature, “which upends how we have to think about designing,” Chester added.

That allows Warmists to proclaim that cold, snow, ice, winter weather is all part of man-caused climate change.

In some cases, the infrastructure failures predicted by climate models have already happened. For example, New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority estimates that Hurricane Sandy, which flooded the New York City subway system, caused $4.75 billion in infrastructure damage.

There’s some debate over whether the hurricane itself was caused by climate change — but scientists agree that we can expect to see weather events like Sandy more frequently as a result of global warming. That makes it harder to file away the damage done by Sandy as a singular occurrence.

They keep telling us about things being “the new normal”, yet, that fails to materialize. Sandy was supposed to be the new normal, yet, there’s been no repeat. Landfalling hurricane activity has fallen to record lows. No major landfalling hurricanes since 2005. California’s permanent drought has ended. When you devolve into prognostication like a palm reader, you’ve left the realm of science.

    The Mother of All Conspiracies (MOAC)

    Early in 1987, George Soros, the Pope, all the Rothschilds, Al Gore, Henry Kissinger, a young Michael Mann, James Hansen, Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, Barack Obama, Helmut Kohl, Svante Arrhenius XIII and Deng Xiaoping met quietly in a villa overlooking Nerviano, Italy. Over wine and bruschetta on a veranda on a particularly mild January day, Soros outlined the basics of what was to become the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming. The objective, of course, was to devise a scheme to frighten the world’s populace into relinquishing their inherent rights to personal determination.

    Fortunately for us, leaked partial transcripts have become available.

    Soros: First we need to institute an august international organization to “generate” (he winked as he said this) data to prove that human actions are causing the Earth to warm. We will call this new organization The Intergovernmental Panel on Global Warming or the IPGW.

    Hansen (raising his hand): Chairman Soros, if I may. The phrase Global Warming indicates that we might actually be able to measure the extent of warming (snickers). If we use Climate Change instead we have much more wiggle room such that real scientists such as Dr. Roy Spencer won’t be able to criticize us as convincingly.

    Soros (looking thoughtful): Reasonable suggestion, Dr. Hansen. There is an Amendment proposed to name our research (snickers) and advice organization The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or the IPCC. All in favor say “aye”.

    Group: Aye!

    Soros: Opposed? (silence) So be it. It’s clear that the US must take the lead if our plan is to succeed and today I’m pleased to announce the next four Presidents of the US of America. Bill Clinton will take over in 1992. We’ll elect his Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and 2004. By 2008, America will be ready for a socialist Muslim President who also happens to be Black, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. The election of Mr. Obama will drive a stake through the heart of the American right. The Rothschilds (nodding), Mr. Kissinger and certain other American officials who prefer not being identified will enable the elections. Dr. Hansen and others, including the clever young Michael Mann will give us scientific cover. Dr. Hansen, can you say just a few words?

    Hansen: Thanks Chairman Soros. The process is simple, really. We control the manipulations of all the raw temperature data and can make it appear to be warming rapidly while at the same time use indecipherable computer models to predict that the warming will continue ad infinitum. Fortunately, over 100 years ago, Svante Arrhenius “proved” (snickers throughout the crowd) that a trivial atmospheric gas, carbon dioxide could absorb a miniscule amount of infrared irradiation (Clinton shouting: What the hell’s that?)(snickers by all) theoretically causing the Earth to warm. We are pleased today to have with us the 11th removed great grandson of Svante Arrhenius (applause).

    Arrhenius (from his seat): Thanks for inviting me. Since we’ve all signed confidentiality agreements I can tell you that my grandpappy times 12 made up all his data (Clinton: No shit, sherlock!. (laughter)). We have his personal notes to prove it. And no other climate scientist has taken the time to challenge his work.

    Soros: The final piece is to get buy in from the major political leaders of the day. We’ve outlined the role the US must play, and we have with us the leaders of Europe, the USSR and China, Mssrs Kohl, Gorbachev and Xiaoping who have signed separately, documents assuring their nations’ support in exchange for certain (pause) concessions (many snickers).

    Soros: Oh shit, I almost forgot the Pope (laughter). In exchange for looking the other way over certain church (pause) indiscretions (laughter)(Clinton patting the Pope on the back) we’re going to get the imprimatur of the globe’s most important moral authority! OK, guys, that’s the outline

    “Climate scientists predict more extreme weather”. They’ve been saying that for years-where is it? But even better, what’s the definition of extreme weather? You won’t hear one, even though they tell us there’s more of it. Pretty neat trick they’re trying to pull off there.
