Roger Pilon states the three dilemmas that the ecozealots have on Global Warming.
Over at Politico’s Arena:
At bottom, the greens face three basic problems. First, by no means is the science of global warming “settled” — if anything, the fraud Climategate surfaced has settled that question. Second, even if global warming were a settled science, the contribution of human activity is anything but certain. And finally, most important, even if the answers to those two questions were clear, the costs — or benefits — of global warming are unknown, but the costs of the proposals promoted by the greens are astronomical.
For me the second dilemma is the most important because the zealots have never answered a basic question for me: How in the hell does mankind affect the weather, or the climate, or whatever they’re calling it? The zealots can’t point to specific instance where mankind is contributing to global warming (or climate change. The change in terms should tell you enough that something else is going on here), but they speak in broad terms as to how “fossil fuels” are contributing to global warming. Also, as Mr. Pilon said, even IF they are able to prove that mankind is the sole reason for global warming (doubtful), then is it much justification to give trillions of dollars to a single entity (the U.N.) to try and combat something that may or may not be harmful to the planet, especially if anything we do will only have a marginal impact on the planet?
For me, the answer is no, there is no justifiable reason to turn over our current existence to try and combat something that is not even understood by the
climate change prophets climate scientists and its current rationale is based on obvious fraud and deceit. It’s a shame that such sharp minds have been wasting away in the cesspool of global warming alarmism. A lot of solutions to our problems depend upon the objectivity and scrutiny of these men, but they allowed short-term gain (government grants and fame) to override their sense of impartiality. I don’t know if climate change IS a problem, but the scientists involved in this scandal have not helped matters by easing people’s skepticism towards this issue.
