Still suffering from “Eco Guilt?”

Still believe in global warming?

Recently, the founder of The Weather Channel, John Coleman, wrote an article about the scam that human-caused Global Warming has become.

“Al Gore, while running for Vice President, said the science behind global warming is settled and there will be no more debate, From 1992 until today, he and his cohorts have refused to debate global warming and when they are asked about we skeptics, they insult us and call us names.

So today we have the acceptance of carbon dioxide as the culprit of global warming. It is concluded that when we burn fossil fuels we are leaving a dastardly carbon footprint which we must pay Al Gore or the environmentalists to offset. Our governments on all levels are considering taxing the use of fossil fuels. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of naming CO2 as a pollutant and strictly regulating its use to protect our climate. The new President and the US congress are on board. Many state governments are moving on the same course.

We are already suffering from this CO2 silliness in many ways. Our energy policy has been strictly hobbled by no drilling and no new refineries for decades. We pay for the shortage this has created every time we buy gas. On top of that the whole thing about corn based ethanol costs us millions of tax dollars in subsidies. That also has driven up food prices. And, all of this is a long way from over.

And, I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it.

Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a high jacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history.

Four months ago – I posted this fun Penn & Teller video about “Eco Guilt” below, and how everyone is so hell-bent on “global warming.”

Is global warming just a giant scam?

I’ve always tended to believe that “the earth always wins” and that use paltry humans cannot possibly impact the globe (and the fact that we have such minimal statistical samples). Yet so many people are “convinced” about all this global warming crap. Just lemmings willing to believe what’s popular and in style?

See this website that reports how More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims.

Some random quotes: “Global warming [is] a political vehicle”, and “I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists”, and “Warming fears are the worst scientific scandal in the history”.

Still believe it? Are you sure it’s not just a political hot-button topic that gets people votes and money?

8/15/2008 Original Post:

Are you a firm believer of Global Warming?

Do you think us humans play a significant role in it?

Are you caught up in the “green frenzy” with other “Eco Maniacs?”

Penn & Teller on “Eco Guilt”

If you don’t subscribe to Showtime, or haven’t yet caught this episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullsh*t! yet, you might want to set aside 28 minutes to watch this highly entertaining look into the truth about Global Warming, and those that profit from it.

(Note: NSFW – contains profane language)

Once you’ve watched it, or if you’ve seen it already, what is your stance on Global Warming?

Is it just another over-hyped fear that is getting pounded into people’s minds? Do buy into it? Do you have enough facts before you speak about “saving” the environment?

Or is Global Warming 100% preventable, and us evil humans are killing mother earth? If so, please provide facts!

was reading today about the fires raging in Australia…

[quote]Angry survivors blame council ‘green’ policy
Andrea Petrie, Arthurs Creek
February 11, 2009

ANGRY residents last night accused local authorities of contributing to the bushfire toll by failing to let residents chop down trees and clear up bushland that posed a fire risk.

During question time at a packed community meeting in Arthurs Creek on Melbourne’s northern fringe, Warwick Spooner — whose mother Marilyn and brother Damien perished along with their home in the Strathewen blaze — criticised the Nillumbik council for the limitations it placed on residents wanting the council’s help or permission to clean up around their properties in preparation for the bushfire season. “We’ve lost two people in my family because you dickheads won’t cut trees down,” he said.

I remember the same complaints in California.

The problem with the U.S. these days is we have become a wasteful society. [/quote]

Tell me about it. From people just sitting in idling cars to buying useless crap to make themselves feel better or impress the neighbors. It’s everywhere and abetted by societal expectations.

There’s this old New England proverb…

Use it up, wear it out, make it do…or do without.

Which is actually quite wise but try to live by it and you will open yourself up to ridicule. Most people these days would fix a lamp (for example) by just tossing it and getting a new one.

BTW, and somewhat OT, I came across an article recently that concludes that the biggest cause of personal bankruptcy is not medical bills or unemployment, contrary to popular myth. It’s actually excessive consumer spending relative to income (think J6P who buys a truck that costs almost an entire year’s take home). As a society, we’re drowning in junk AND the debt we used to acquire it.

All last week, John Hockenberry (Peabody Award-winning journalist) did “The Power Trip” on The TakeAway, on WNYC (www.wnyc.org). All about conservation, alternative & renewable energy sources. Interesting stuff. Archived.

Well, you’re not exactly killing with the humor, so maybe you should try being more serious, assuming, that is, you have something worthwhile to say.[/quote]

Bite it.

How’s that for “worthwhile”? :D[/quote]

[quote comment=”134142″][quote comment=”134134″]So, Hans, if I understand you correctly, everyone who owns a Prius is an Obama supporter, bought the car strictly as a status symbol, and whatever the value might be of driving a fuel efficient car is negated by the fact that they voted for a different presidential candidate than you did. Can you be a little more pathetic?[/quote]

No that’s not what I said.[/quote]

Not exactly, but you pretty much implied it (did you not?), which is more pathetic, in its indirectness.
