So only tyranny will save us from being burnt to a crisp? 3

As the president reveals his plan to reduce greenhouse gases to save us from an apocalyptic atmosphere, I wish to remind people of three things …

So Joe Bastardi, chief forecaster at WeatherBELL Analytics, a meteorological consulting firm, writes at The Right Opinion.

1.) The true hockey stick of the fossil fuel era: Global progress in total population, personal wealth and life expectancy.

This is truly amazing. To show how fossil fuels played a roll in expanding the global pie, there are many more people alive today living longer and enjoying a higher GDP. One has to wonder if someone against fossil fuels is simply anti-progress. Ironic since many in the camp of anthropogenic global warming like to label themselves “progressive”. They’re certainly anti-statistic given something like this staring them in the face.

2.) The geological time scale of temperatures versus CO2.

As much as I struggle, I can’t see the linkage. …

3.) EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy admitted that the steps being taken would only prevent .01 degrees Celsius of warming, but it was the example that counted for the rest of the world.

This article sums that up pretty nicely.

This in addition to the fact that, in 2011, she admitted she did not know how much CO2 was in the atmosphere. And its lines of evidence for this are provably false!

Given the facts, I can’t help but wonder: Did policymakers ever take Economics 101, or a course in how to read a chart?

And the writer asks:

All this for .01 degrees Celsius?

    Reading charts doesn’t matter! Economics doesn’t matter! All that matters is the glorious socialist utopia that’s just around the corner, as soon as the Democrats get enough leech-peop-*cough*- enough social-justice-conscious people to ensure a permanent grasp on power. With AGW as our causus belli, we shall soon improve the lot of mankind by bringing back the days of the noble savage. Except for themselves, of course, for our longsuffering leaders are willing to make the sacrifice of living in abject luxury while the rest of us shall get the wholesome lifestyle of just-above-subsistence living! Viva Che! Viva Stalin!

      Ha! Exactly right. Leech farming has become a highly profitable enterprise!

    Great examples of how flimsy the “evidence” is for the supposedly “settled science that only morons would deny”!
    It proves what easily manipulated sheep the vast majority of people are.
    Simply threaten them with public humiliation for being an ignorant “denier”, and see them fall quickly and obediently in line with the government’s agenda!
    It’s amazing, considering the vastness of human stupidity, that we ever even had these few short centuries of progress.
