While Scott Pruitt was sitting in his confirmation hearing and forced to endure Bernie Sanders' predictable parroting of Marxist anti-capitalist propaganda, Sanders regurgitated a common lie distributed by the media and classrooms for years: "97% of scientists believe in man-made global warming". Like all Marxist core talking points, it's simply not true no matter how much they clench their fists and stomp their feet.
During the 1990s, I had many-an-argument with people whom for whatever reason decided to jump on the man-made global warming train. I've always known it's a fallacy and I have always laughed at the concept, and to this day I maintain a 100% accuracy rate in my predictions like we won't be under water by the year 2000. They were as insane to me as the Heaven's Gate cult (I'm dating myself), where they said the world was about to end, so they killed themselves so their souls could hitchhike on the Hale-Bopp comet to a big UFO or something. The main difference between that scenario and man-made global warming is that Marshall Applewhite died broke, while Al Gore made a killing.
Liberals want to ignore the effect the Sun has on the Earth. The Sun is very hot. It's also very bright, so liberals, please don't go stare at it. That's not the time to finally start getting curious about things in the sky, and you've already suffered enough brain damage. The Sun actually has such an important influence on the Earth that if it went away, all life on Earth would die. Yes, it's true! People just can't affect the climate on such a global scale. If you took the ~7.2 billion people on the planet and packed them together, each with 1 square meter of space to stand in, you'd need a slightly larger area than Delaware. Rains, the oceans, volcanoes, winds, and all the stuff mother nature throws our way just dwarfs anything us humans can return. We really are insignificant, and man can't affect the seasons to the dismay of Marxists.
Pollution becomes the vehicle they use to deliver their propaganda, yet conservatives are very much against pollution. To demonstrate this, google for images of areas after conservative or tea party events versus liberal events. It will make you sick. Liberals don't care about themselves or their country so it makes sense as to why they would behave this way, but for them to say they care about the environment is ridiculous. Conservatives love the outdoors and are far more in touch with nature. We're the hunters, fishers, and the environmentally responsible. We also care about our communities and are shocked with horror when we see images of trashed areas after a liberal event. In the end, pollution is used as a hook to grab hold of their ultimate prey: capitalism. The Marxists are always attacking capitalism since it's a way for people to be independent and never depend on a central authority. Therefore, they will use the "conservatives want corporations to pollute the rivers and streams" lie. Think about that. Why would anyone want to pollute a river or stream? Nothing could be further from the truth, and conservatives are very strong on laws and regulations that reduce and prevent pollution. To trigger one of these parrots, when they say this, simply tell them that's not true and we have laws to prevent pollution.
The "97% of scientists" lie has been debunked. It wasn't even a clever lie, yet they still parrot it, albeit not as often. The perpetrators of the lie attempted to assemble a consensus and failed pretty bad. A minimal amount of research and thinking will expose this hoax for anyone, yet people with platforms and microphones like Bernie Sanders continue to distribute it to their gullible followers. I wish these people would learn some critical thinking.
I know debunkable BS when I see it. Even recently, a top NOAA scientist, Dr. John Bates, blew the whistle on these fraudsters changing the data to fit the warming narrative. This time, it was to hide the global warming "pause", or warming slow down, to show it never existed in a report before the Paris Agreement:
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.
But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.
Pretty sick. Even after Michael Mann's hockey stick fiasco, they continued to push full speed ahead. Same with this lie. If you really have science and facts, why the lying and hiding? Why can't Bernie Sanders see this? Of course, you can always follow the money. The EPA is in the business of shaking down companies for money:
With the blessing of the Department of Justice, the EPA has been going after major corporations and telling those corporations that they can pay a massive fine to the federal government or pay a lesser amount to various environmentalist groups.
More often than not, to get the EPA off their backs, the companies fork over money to leftwing run environmentalist groups. Those groups then begin a vicious cycle. They start hounding the corporations that give them money, file complaints with the EPA, then get the EPA to shake down the companies for more money.
Frankly, I'm amazed Pruitt was confirmed, but the little Marxist mafia scam they had going on is about to come to and end. I'm hoping with Scott Pruitt, and direction from President Trump, the real science will begin to see the light of day and force the idealouges to educate themselves.
