The Utter Desperation of Global Warmists

By Alan Caruba

In the “glory years” of the global warming hoax, you had Al Gore picking up Oscars and Nobel Prizes (shared with the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and government employees like James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies were picking up wads of cash as awards, speech fees, and grants.

The folks who conjured up the computer models featured in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports also did quite well for themselves, along with all the others who climbed on the gravy train of global warming grants.

And then in 1998 a cooling cycle set in. It was hard to hide because the weather satellite data was indisputable, but try to hide it they did. Even then, however, there was a handful of outspoken meteorologists and climatologists who were trying hard to get out the message that the perfectly natural warming cycle was over and had been replaced, thanks to—guess what?—a lower output of solar radiation by the SUN.

Still the warmists persisted, infiltrating school systems to frighten children, brainwashing students in colleges, and coercing the public through apocalyptic books, through magazine and newspaper articles, and on television and the Internet.

In 2009, the release of a huge cache of emails between the IPCC global warming perpetrators instantly became known as “Climategate” as the world learned that it was all a scam, a hoax, a fraud based on deliberately falsified computer models, and force fed to the public.

The desperation of the warmists was palpable.

In 2006, Grist, an eco-magazine, called for Nurenberg-style trials for skeptics. By 2007, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. had called any doubts about global warming treason. “This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors.” Two years later in 2009, Kennedy called coal companies “criminal enterprises”, declaring that their CEO’s “should be in jail…for all of eternity.” In 2008 NASA’s Hansen was calling for trials of climate skeptics for “high crimes against humanity.”

Didn’t like the warmist’s bogus science? A former member of the Clinton administration, Joe Romm, defended a comment on his Climate Progress website that warned that a generation of brain-washed youth would see to it that skeptics would “be strangled in their beds.”

Today, another Clinton appointee, Carol Browner, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator is one of Obama’s “czars” and the unseen specter whispering in the ear of Lisa Jackson, the current EPA administrator. She is joined by John Holden, an Obama science advisor, and Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu.

Prof. Kari Norgaard
 If threats of jail and murder couldn’t shut up the skeptics, then Professor Kari Marie Norgaard, speaking at a warmist confab, “Planet Under Pressure”, put forth the notion that any science-based skepticism—based on actual, not fictional data—should be “recognized and treated” as some sort of aberrant behavior.

Doubt global warming? Well, you must be nuts!

Norgaard is a professor of sociology and environmental studies at the University of Oregon. As she put it, “Climate change poses a massive threat to our present social, economic and political order. From a sociological perspective, resistance to change is to be expected. People are individually and collectively habituated to the ways we act and think. That habituation must be recognized and simultaneously addressed at the individual, cultural and societal level—how we think the world works and how we think it should work.”

“Should work”? The Earth—the oceans, the clouds, and its entire eco-system—doesn’t give a rat’s patoot about how warmists and other weather crazies think it “should work.” All that intellectual claptrap adds up to a totalitarian belief that people who disagree with global warming should be jailed or killed.

And in true totalitarian fashion reminiscent of the Stalin era when people simply disappeared from public records and reports, on April 2nd Norgaard’s bio for Whitman College could no longer to be found on the its website. True to the eco-fascist approach, she had become a liability, a non-person for having revealed their plans for humanity.

Regular people who actually do something useful with their lives know that intellectuals like Norgaard hold them in utter contempt, but it is those who profess belief in global warming that should be regarded with grave and serious suspicion.

Those who use global warming, i.e., the assertion that carbon dioxide emissions should be restricted and controlled, are the true enemies of progress, of freedom, and of humanity.

In the twentieth century intellectuals foisted Communism on the world, thus ensuring that millions of Russians, Chinese, Cambodians and others would be killed for their dissent. Intellectuals are always the first to embrace every dictator and to excuse their methods.

The warmists are increasingly desperate as their dreams of global domination are falling apart.

In Europe and here in America all their schemes to replace the real production of electricity with solar panels and wind turbines are being rejected. Their plans for herding populations into cities and onto mass transit meet with resistance. Parents are objecting to their eco-curricula in schools. Al Gore has become a joke.

Consider this, if they were in charge, anyone who voiced dissent from their global warming-climate change lies would be in concentration camps, undergoing “re-education”, being “treated” with mind-altering drugs, or dead.

No all dissenters would be thermally recycled.

No...all dissenters would just be thermally recycled.

Natural climate change is a reality, but due to natural forces, noy the tiny amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.

And such natural climate change has always posed real and serious problems for any societies.

The end of the Roman Warm Period was one c;imate change, and Rome fell as a direct result. Until the Medieval Warm Period came along, there was no peace in Europe, just a series of wars, without much in the way of writing being done, as most of the writing was done by scribes writing declarations from kings.

Cold eras have always lasted far longer than warming periods, and decimated the populations of all animals and humans, along with vegetation.

We are most fortunate to be living in this modern warm period, and have no idea of how long it will last.

A finnish ecomentalist has already come up with the idea of gulags for those that dont believe in climate religion

The history has a tendency to repeat itself - dressed in new clothing...: "These greens don't seem to realize how much they sound like medieval witch-hunters. In the Dark Ages, before man enlightened himself, witches were frequently hunted and burned on the basis that they were causing climate change - specifically very cold winters.

One of the driving forces behind the witch-hunting mania in Europe between the 15th and 17th centuries was the idea that these peculiar creatures had warped the weather.

As the German historian Wolfgang Behringer argued in his 2004 book, Witches and Witch-Hunts, "large-scale persecutions were clearly linked to years of extreme hardship and in particular the type of misery related to extreme climatic events". (Brendan O'Neill)

John, I was unaware of the connection between the medieval witch hunts and the climate at the time. That's an interesting angle.

I hate to be petty, disregard everything Norgaard said, and lower myself to the depths by making simplistic insults against Kari Norgaard, BUT DAMNIT
LOOK at her 'crooked ass' face. What is WRONG with her FACE and HEAD? LMAO ! She also has 'crazy eyes/crazy smile' combo which registers high on my 'danger' scale HAHA ;D

AL GORE also compared 'doubters of global warming' to RACISTS. And of course RJ Kennedy thinks everything is racist, except black racists.

And you know Europe is constantly putting people on trial for 'not believing things and saying so' or saying they believe something happened, but, just not like we are being told; complaining about mass immigration; AND USING THE WORD NEGRO apparently !!

Some 75 year old fashion designer, or somebody like that AN OLD MAN in France made the comment that when he was young he 'worked like a negro' or 'was worked' like a negro, then asked 'do people still say that?' They put the poor son of a bitch on TRIAL and he got fined $8,000 !!! yes 8 grand for saying 'i worked like a negro'
OH WELL, I guess he shouldn't have said that, we all know negros don't work very hard XD XD I mean that's the crux of it, if what he said was wrong or demeaning in some way, because times were different then, and blacks were treated differently & 'worked hard', but i guess not.

Another man here was fined because he said he 'didn't like islam because they treat the women just terribly' during a private conversation that someone secretly recorded and 'turned in' WHAT THE HELL? So now you can't even speak privately to someone and share your thoughts, because if they catch you, they'll charge you!

A woman speaking about islam, reading quotes and texts directly from the Koran and Haddiths during her 'lecture'-was accused of 'inciting hatred against a religious group' not because of anything she personally said about islam, but just because she read what was in their holy word of god. She faced 3 years in prison & I'm pretty sure she was found guilty. Apparently READING THE KORAN OUT LOUD foments HATE against Muslims XD XD

THIS is what we are facing in EUROPE. Kari Norgaard, I'm sure she's Swedish, that's where I'm living now, idiot, brainwashed, land of the fascist liberals, total media censorship & blackouts, laws against 'racism'-people having to pay huge fines if they basically tell the truth about something, while they continue to funnel in thousands upon thousands of Afghani and Somalian immigrants, the LOWEST absolute WORST scum in the world. Who love to come here, live on the dole and rape everybody up, because 'swedish women are all whores'-never learn the language, never get a job and THIS is supposed to be the 'generation that will 'save' Sweden by working & paying taxes into the welfare system. SO FAR all they've done is sucked it dry.

Thank you for this article, I had NO IDEA they actually wanted to prosecute people for DISBELIEF.

@BunBun: Yup Kari is a definete loon. I was a bit surprised at your description of Sweden. I had no idea how bad it was there.
