Confessions of a Flat-Earther
Vol: 108 Issue: 29 Wednesday, September 29, 2010
The 58th meeting of the Bilderberg Group was held this year in Sitges, Spain during the first week in June. The meeting was attended by roughly 130 members of the global elite.
According to the Bilderberg website, Bilderberg was named for the hotel where the first meeting took place in 1954.
“That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance.”
But the part that got my attention was the the group’s discussion agenda for this year. Again, from the official website:
“The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations . . .”
You caught it, didn’t you? Global cooling? Is that a typo? As the piece of string once said, “I’m a frayed knot.”
One might be tempted to credit Al Gore and the global warming crazies who so scared the population that we overcorrected and now the planet has entered into a cooling trend. But that assumes that climate change is man-made (antropogenic) in the first place.
The concept is so easily disproved that it is utterly astonishing that it ever gained traction in the first place. Ninety-six percent of all greenhouse gases and other so-called global warming emissions occur naturally as a consequence of the oceans that cover 5/6s of the world’s land mass.
That leaves only 4 percent to divide up between human activity, volcanoes, rotting vegetation, cow flatulence, etc., etc. Human activity accounts for about 14% of that 4%.
Let’s simplify it. How much money is 14% of four cents? ($0.056 — or roughly one-tenth of a half penny.)
Evidently, you have to be a rocket scientist in order to believe that the human contribution of 0.056% in greenhouse gases is enough to destroy the planet. Turns out that it isn’t. Never was.
By now you probably know it too, but that isn’t stopping either Senate Democrats or the Far Left crazies from continuing to stump for a cap and trade scheme that would tax the air that we breathe to combat global warming.
The fact that global warming has been renamed twice in order to acccomodate the fact the planet isn’t warming anymore has had little effect on the True Believers.
(It was Al Gore who compared global warming skeptics to members of the “Flat Earth Society” and coined the phrase “global warming heretics” to describe climate scientists that questioned his ‘evidence’.)
When global warming turned out not to be either ‘global’ or ‘warming’ Al Gore’s True Believers decided a better name for it might be ‘climate change’.
But that wasn’t a scary-enough name. Especially since ‘climate change’ was already in use — as another name for ‘weather.’ A scarier name had to be found, but one that didn’t openly admit that the global warming scare was massive con job, so at first, global cooling was out.
John Holdren, one of the administration’s dozens of unaccountable ‘czars’ thinks a much better hame might be ‘global climate disruption’. That is a lot harder to argue against, since it is hard to nail down exactly what that might describe.
Does it mean that somebody has temporarily turned off the climate? “This just in! Due to global climate disruption there will be no weather today. . .”
Or it could mean we’re as dumb as he thinks we are, so it really doesn’t matter what it really means..
As long as it sounds scary enough.
December 2009 was the second snowiest year on record for the entire Northern Hemisphere. Beijing had its heaviest snowfall in sixty years. Korea had the largest snowfall since record keeping began.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting the current global cooling trend will continue.
“The 2011 issue of the almanac, which claims to be the nation’s oldest continuously published periodical, was released Tuesday. It predicts that in the coming months, the Earth will continue to see a “gradual cooling of the atmosphere … offset by any warming caused by increased greenhouse gases.”
A leading scientist and member of the IPCC (UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) Dr. Mojib Latif says an analysis of natural cycles proves human activity has zero effect on global climate change, which if true, eliminates any need for cap and trade legislation, greenhouse gas taxes, or alternative fuel sources.
In a stunning revelation, he told the Daily Mail that:
“a significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 to 2000 and at earlier periods in the 20th Century was due to these cycles – perhaps as much as 50 percent.”
Thanks to Al Gore, instead of using oil from the ground that has no other purpose, we are instead taking food grains and converting them to fuel. The amount of grain necessary to fill an SUV’s 25 gallon tank is enough to feed one person for a year.
So guess what is replacing global warming as the Next Big Thing? Food shortages. (Thanks, Al.)
Meanwhile, fuel bills continue to rise as governments continue to use global warming fears to justify everything from tax increases on fuel to rationing electricity in the name of saving the planet.
Individual freedoms curtailed in the name of saving the planet run from what kind of light bulbs are allowed to the number of bags of trash allowed per household.
Where I live, it is illegal to use ordinary incandescent light bulbs (no longer manufactured). We are permitted one bag of trash per week, provided it has been properly sorted for recycling.
The government is subsidizing the installation of ‘smart meters’ that will automatically brown out a home using more electricity than the government thinks is allowable.
Global warming was a terrific boon to power-hungry politicians and governments that are now trying to respin the argument in order to keep their gravy train on the tracks, hence the repositioning of it to accomodate the lack of global warming by renaming it whenever scientific evidence forces them to.
How stupid do they think the public is? Answer: Stupid enough.
First it was global warming. Then global climate change. Then, global climate disruption. Finally, with the Bilderbergs, we have the first official reference to global cooling.
Whether it is global warming, climate change, climate disruption or global cooling, one thing is certain. They are lying about the cause. Deliberately.
I’m not a scientist, so that is probably the reason why the actual cause of global climate change is a no-brainer to me. I did this experiment in order to confirm the answer and, lo and behold, the experiment worked EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Try it for yourself:
Go outside at noon on a sunny day. It won’t matter if it is summer or winter – the experiment works no matter what the season. Note the temperature. Now go back inside until midnight. Come back outside. Note the temperature.
Without anybody starting a car, burning a pile of leaves, turning up a thermostat or throwing out too much garbage, you will note that the temperature at midnight is lower than the temperature at noon.
That experiment demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt the cause of global warming, global cooling and climate change in general.
It’s the sun.
But you can’t tax the sun. You can’t change its’ behavior. If the cause of global climate change is the sun, then there is nothing human beings can do to prevent it. For that reason, the sun is the last place True Believers would blame for global warming. Or cooling. Or in between.
One last thing I’d like to highlight in this story. The planet isn’t warming. Nor is it cooling. That is obvious to anyone that doesn’t have a global climate change agenda up their sleeve.
What they are selling is fear. Of what is irrelevant, as long as it scares you into submission.
It can be fear of global climate change. Fear of the sun itself. Fear of impending destruction from killer asteroids. Fear of melting ice causing catastropic flooding.
(Here’s another experiment. Put an ice cube in a glass of water. Mark the water level. Wait till the ice melts. Note the water level. )
In His description of the signs that will precede His Second Coming, Jesus said:
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)
Then the Lord shifts gears a little. After all these signs appear, the Lord He will return visibly, where every eye can see Him:
“And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (Luke 21:27)
But in what is obviously a reference to what happens before the visible coming of the Son of Man in power and great glory at His Second coming, the Lord said this to His disciples.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
It is coming to pass, is it not? Then the remainder of the Promise remains equally valid. He’s coming soon.
But He’s comng for us first.
