Global Warming Goes God

I’ve been patient. I’ve actually physically bit my tongue in public to avoid starting something. I am a firecracker with just a few layers of protective shielding to keep those around me intact if there is a bit of a spark, but with flames all around right now, I can’t save you from my opinion any longer.

I’ll start it out as plainly as I can muster: people who believe that global warming is purely caused by man’s activities, humans are like a cancer on the planet, and that there is no other reason why temperatures are rising (debatable) are crackpot whackos that need to be sedated and educated before their own stupidity causes their demise.

Now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s get down to the facts of the matter, and start with public opinion on the whole global warming issue. I subscribe to Wired magazine and my jaw hit the floor as I read these poll reports from Wired readers. 80% of those polled are somewhat to very concerned about global warming and a full 43% believe that global warming has played a major role in recent extreme weather. For pure facts, reports, scientific data, and op-ed pieces by major players in the scientific community who do not subscribe to the global warming scare, the best compendium of links I know of is Todd Schnitt’s Global Warming page at Schnitt’s Global Warming Files from the Tampa radio station, 970 WFLA, also heard on XM.

That is a scary indicator of the intelligence of the general public, but this next item is typically self-centered, and a major reason why this whole issue has become a hotbed controversy. Fifty-eight percent of those polled say they have done their fair share to reduce global warming, but feel that 85% of the rest of people have not done their fair share. Me, me, me. I, I, I. You suck. You don’t know it, but you do. You bonehead. If 85% of you think you’ve done enough, then there is only 15% left to pick on, so back off! Call off the dogs, the press, the blogs, the legislation, and all of the other crap going on to inconvenience everyone.

The press and activists are taking this to a religious level, persecuting those who have a different view of the planet. Just because Al Gore says something doesn’t make him right. He invented the Internet, remember? Have you stopped to consider that nearly everyone pushing “green” solutions to everything have a monetary interest in the success of those programs? It’s their JOB to be successful in getting you to believe whatever it is they say. Look behind the bills, “green” solutions like the carbon footprint buyouts, and fundraising companies. I’m sure they are all pure in their motives. Every last one of them. What they are doing is gaining enough momentum to swing popular belief their direction and make their wild claims valid by popularity alone.

It’s not going to work on me, and it shouldn’t work on you.

    So I’m guessing no Clinton/Gore 2008, or vice versa, talk for you. j/k 🙂

    Not unless it’s about hammering socialism, idiotic military cut-backs, and other various special interest rants.

    Find me one person on this planet that likes to hear her voice when she’s making a point and I’ll show you someone who is deaf.

    /end rant #2 🙂

    Hey, Jesse. I just found your blog. I think voting in the upcoming nominations is incredibly important.
    Ron Paul (R) wants to break down the barriers of Left vs Right…..and get back to the basics: The Constitution.
    Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:
    He has never voted to raise taxes.
    He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
    He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
    He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
    He has never taken a government-paid junket.
    He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.
    He voted against the Patriot Act.
    He voted against regulating the Internet.
    He voted against the Iraq war.
    He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
    He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.
    Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.
