On the topic of ‘climate change’

The News Advertiser carried a front page story in the May 6, 2014, edition which presented the typical rant by the progressive political and cultural left on “climate change.” And the government must have money, power and control in order to halt our march into oblivion.

To give credit to the News Advertiser, they did publish a cartoon on page 4A of that issue which showed three main stream media “ostriches” burying their heads so as not to notice major scandals in the left driven Obama administration while concentrating instead on the next article promoting the dire warnings of the “climate change” propagandists.

I remember back in the 1970s when we were being warned by essentially the same avant-garde crowd of a great “ice age” coming upon us. Less than a generation later this warning had been changed to “global warming.” From the threat of freezing over to burning up. Now the propaganda is being promoted by the phrase “climate change.”

Anyone who lives in Iowa very long knows that the climate is always changing.

I decided some years ago that three general factors drove all this obsession with the climate among leftists ideologues and their fellow travelers. The factors were political power and control, a way for some people to profit financially off of such a scheme and a pagan religious fervency to replace the Judeo Christian heritage that many of them had abandoned.

Interestingly, Patrick Moore, one of the co-founders of the environmental advocacy group Greenpeace, said recently that he had abandoned Greenpeace because the climate control crowd were taking positions on issues unsupported by scientific fact. Patrick Moore went on to say that the manmade climate change theory is “a kind of nasty combination of extreme political ideology and a religious cult all rolled into one.”
