MILLINOCKET, Maine, February 23, 2014 – In his climate change remarks to his audience in Jakarta, Secretary of State John Kerry made some revealing statements:
“The science of climate change is leaping out at us like a scene from a 3D movie.”
It’s an interesting analogy because 3D movies are optical illusions, designed to make two-dimensional objects appear to be real.
“It’s warning us; it’s compelling us to act,” Kerry continued.
In the 3D remake of “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” the t-rex seems to stick his nose in your face, and most people instinctively recoil, even though they know it’s just an illusion. Climate change proponents are hoping people will react to their illusions and be frightened into submission.
“And let there be no doubt in anybody’s mind that the science is absolutely certain. It’s something that we understand with absolute assurance of the veracity of that science. No one disputes some of the facts about it,” Kerry added.
That last sentence is somewhat nonsensical, but we won’t quibble with Mr. Secretary.
Not content to simply state his position, he further comments, “We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts. The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand. We don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.”
Two principles are at play here. The first can be attributed to Joseph Goebbels who said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
And secondly we have the influence of Saul Alinski, who taught community organizers to use ridicule and denigration to intimidate opposition.
Moving from browbeating to ominous, Kerry said, “In a sense, climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”
Thanks for drawing that parallel, John. Does this mean we can expect to engage in a “War on Weather” sometime soon?
