A fruitless search for one person affected by climate change

Written By | Apr 24, 2017

LOS ANGELES, April 24, 2017 — With Earth Day again receding into the past, it fell to innocent sanitation workers to clean up the messes environmentalists left behind after their celebrations and demonstrations. The trash, syringes and misspelled profane signs have all been removed so parks could be clean before the next protest.

While the global warming climate change movement is a mostly rich, white, liberal phenomenon, it may be necessary to stop these eggheads before the real damage occurs. The ensuing harm will not be suffered by the planet, but by the next generation of young people wiling to question nothing, believe in anything, and spout words they don’t understand in all capital letters to convey what they believe is high seriousness.

The climate change movement is less about science and more like a religious cult. Anyone questioning earth goddess Gaea is labeled stupid or evil or both. The eventual comparisons to Hitler are inevitable, because anybody who does not believe in climate change must be as terrible as the mustachioed murderer of six million Jews.

The left screams about science and facts while quoting from opinion pieces by liberal bloggers screaming about science and facts while knowing nothing about either.

The fake science they preach is corrupt. Dissenting opinions are stifled, skeptical scientists are blackballed, and predictions are repeatedly proven spectacularly wrong. Only liberals could tout a zero percent rate of accuracy as success and demand total obedience to their cult of climate change.

As arrogance and smugness are mistaken for erudition, a simple question needs to be asked. Since climate change is supposed to be a destructive force, has anyone, anywhere ever been affected by it? In a world of seven billion people, can one climate change advocate name one individual on earth who has ever been adversely affected physically by climate change?

On September 11, 2001, radical Islamic terrorists murdered nearly 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. The victims had names. Can anyone name a single climate change victim?

The typical leftist response to such heresy is to repeat the words “facts” and “science” ad nauseum in big, bold capital letters with tons of exclamation points and sad-faced emojis. This is often accompanied by pompous comments about how difficult it is to tolerate those so stupid or evil to disagree with a liberal about anything.

Other liberals will bleat on about weather patterns, oblivious to the many instances of extreme weather that existed before the Snake messed with Adam and Eve.

If a movement requires violence toward all apostates and infidels, then the movement is riddled with flaws and insecurities. Outside of Jihadis, very few individuals other than environmentalist extremists can summon and express such towering rage at those refusing to convert to their religion.

Liberal parents often talk about the effect climate change has on their children. After all, when kids are crying at night afraid to sleep, it must be the fault of climate change. They are scared.

But the real reason they are scared is because their parents are committing child abuse by filling their heads with visions of planetary Armageddon rather than cartoons. Their kids are actually suffering from indoctrination, which can be cured by removing them from the climate change zealots raising them and putting them in a safer environment. Very few conservative Republican children spend their nights crying over something that has never affected a single person anywhere.

If there was one person who genuinely had the right to blame climate change for his suffering, it would be Texas Governor Greg Abbott. He was a true victim of the environment. He is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair because an environmentally friendly tree literally fell on him, causing severe injuries.

Rather than find a trial lawyer to sue Gaea for causing his serious misfortune, Abbott chose to remain a skeptic. He did not let unfortunate circumstances turn him into a whiner.

The most extreme environmentalist zealots even blame climate change for the ongoing, tragic violence in Syria. While genocide is most unfortunate, the Syrians are victims to objects commonly referred to as munitions: bullets, bombs, and other chemical weapons.

While chemicals are a key part of science and scientific studies, science is also behind the weapons part of chemical weapons—the part that is causing the most damage. As hapless Syrians lie on the ground gasping for air, their final wish is not for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to lighten his carbon footprint. In their horrible, flickering final moments, they do not care if the weapons he uses are biodegradable, homeopathic, holistic, organic, or gluten-free.

Real problems cause real deaths, not hypothetical ones. Cancer, heart disease, and living in Chicago are all killers. None of them have anything to do with climate change.

Climate change activism is all about money, power and total government control of our lives through massive regulations.

Not one single person will ever be helped by climate change regulation because not one single person has ever been hurt by climate change to begin with.

Those who dissent with this rational view are free to name that victim. But answering questions is pointless when money flows into phony, politicized science as a result of  screaming vile epithets at those who dare to question junk science.
