Follow the money
Global warming alarmists must be shaking their heads in disbelief. Just when they felt they had the stars aligned to push their anti-capitalism/free enterprise agenda on the international stage and claim the power that they crave, the climate and scientists have begun to turn against them.
Sydney, Australia, has snow for the first time since 1836. To put this in perspective: in 1836, Andrew Jackson was president of the United States, Victoria was a year away from being crowned Queen of England upon her 18th birthday, and Davy Crockett met his heroic end at the Alamo.This is a slight exaggeration by Investors.com because the snow was in the Blue Mountains -West of Sydney. And let us not forget that a single weather event does not mean climate change. As Mark Twain said:
Climate Is What You Expect; The Weather Is What You Get
Climate lasts all the time and weather only a few days.Strangely, the same Blue Mountains are now facing bush fires (or known to some as wild fires.)
Rick Manning continues:
And to confuse the science-is-settled-on-global-warming crowd even further, some solar scientists are now projecting that due to changes in the sun's cycles, the earth is likely to suffer from what is known as a "Little Ice Age" starting in 2030, as the heat-giving star settles into a very rare pattern of inactivity. Imagine their consternation at learning that the sun actually plays a role in the earth's temperature.Ah, but Rick, the UNFCCC and the IPCC are not allowed to examine natural causes of climate change. Their brief, (should they choose to accept it), is to only look at anthropogenic (man-made) causes of climate change.
How lame is that? Imagine the bush fire mentioned above and the examination was restricted to human causes.
- Was the fire caused by sunlight on broken glass? NO! Man wasn't involved in that.
- Was the fire caused by Trees in Power Lines? NO! Man wasn't involved in that.
IT IS YOU! It is you and your carbon footprint. Errr.....actually your alleged carbon dioxide footprint.
(Why do the shrill, when referring to CO2 [two oxygen molecules to one carbon molecule] say carbon? Do they, when talking of water (H2O) call it oxygen?)
Rick Manning concludes:
The head of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, readily admits that the real climate change agenda has nothing to do with the environment, but instead is about redistribution of wealth.Yes, she gave the game away. The CAGW hoax is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
