The US Government is Pushing Climate Change like a Drug

By Alan Caruba

We all know that heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamines are addictive drugs that do a great deal of harm to those addicted to them, but the U.S. government has been pushing global warming, now called climate change, to addict Americans to the belief that the Earth is threatened when it is not.

Climate change is what has been going on for the 4.5 billion of years of Earth’s existence. It has nothing to do with human behavior, energy use, or carbon dioxide, the bogyman of greenhouse gases.

So why is the National Research Council, the operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering, preparing to release “three new reports examining how the nation can combat the effects of global warming”?

Why does one of the reports focus “on the science that supports human-induced climate change and the others review options for limiting the magnitude and adapting to the impacts of global warming” when there is NO global warming?

The Earth has been a distinct and well-documented cooling cycle for over a decade at this point in time!

Moreover, the U.S. government has wasted some $50 billion on climate change research over the course of the last two or three decades. Do we really need three new reports—--particularly when they are going to repeat that same debunked “science” that has underwritten the greatest fraud of the modern era?

May 19 is the day when the president of the National Academy of Sciences, Ralph J. Cicerone, will deliver the opening statement and members of the several panels will commit an act of scientific charlatanism by repeating the lies that have been driving the global warming fraud for way too long.

Fortunately, if you want the truth, you can attend the speakers and panels of the 4th International Conference on Climate Change that will occur May 16-18 in Chicago. It is sponsored by The Heartland Institute

Could these three new reports have anything to do with the fact that a so-called climate bill, the Cap-and-Trade Act (since renamed) has been introduced in the Senate, having been pushed through the House in the same way as Obamacare? The bill is an economy-killer.

The Renewable Energy Scam

Could this have something to do with the U.S. Army hosting “the inaugural Renewable Energy Rodeo and Symposium” on June 8-9m at Fort Bliss? And would somebody please tell me what fighting of our nation’s wars has to do with renewable energy? Answer: It doesn’t. But when you are in the process of corrupting science while promoting the most bogus forms of energy other than oil, natural gas, and coal, using every element of the federal government to advance your agenda is obvious.

Meanwhile, the International City/County Management Association has received a $5 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy to “head a team that will work with local government leaders and stakeholders to accelerate wider adoption of solar energy. IMCA will work with the American Planning Association, the National Association of Regional Councils, and industry experts on this new project.”

The key words here are “industry experts” because, if the U.S. government was not wasting your money on solar energy, the most inefficient method of generating electricity other than wind, those in these industries would be looking for jobs waiting on tables or working a Zamboni ice smoothing machine.

Quite possibly, too, you are unaware that the National Governors Association, rather than focusing on the fact that most States are broke, will instead devote themselves to “initiatives to improve energy efficiency, promote alternative (solar and wind) energy sources, and (to) lower greenhouse gas emissions.”

What Americans are being subjected to is a campaign to enrich wind and solar energy producers and the sellers of “carbon credits” while at the same time being told that climate change is the most pressing issue facing the nation. It is a totally invented issue.

This is criminality on a massive scale because it is criminal to impoverish Americans by advocating energy schemes that ignore our dependence on the traditional sources of energy. Indeed, the entire industrialized and modern world depends on these sources.

It is criminal to advocate a bogus “climate change” whose true intent is to enrich utilities, some select large industries, and others with worthless “carbon credits” to be sold on exchanges controlled by Wall Street firms and environmental titans like Al Gore. In Europe such exchanges have generated massive fraud.

While this occurs—if it does occur—Americans will pay more for electrical energy and see a significant rise in the cost of gasoline. Manufacturing will seek friendlier nations in which to set up shop and thousands more jobs will be exported.

We must rid ourselves of the Obama administration and the Democrats in control of Congress before they achieve their goal of destroying America.

Fraud is the appropriate word to describe this charlatanism. Fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; Fraud and attempted fraud are crimes and also civil law violations. This may be the largest class action suit ever.

I just saw a piece of news where Al Gore is being awarded an honorary doctorate in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Tennessee. This is outrageous! Will this misguided hero-worship never end???

Even if one stipulates that man-made CO2 is a major causative factor in warming, the proposed solutions are far more about expansion of governmental power over the populace than about the environment.

Statism is a form of religion in its own right, and maximizing power is the unending goal.

Whatever propaganda can be useful will be used. Again and again I repeat: Dr. Goebbels is roaring with laughter.
