Just like the old saying, sh*t happens, climate happens as well. But there are a lot of people out there that just don't want you to think that. Let's talk about it.
Well I believe it started in the 60's or 70's where the theme was that we were heading for another ice age. When that was proven wrong and didn't fit their agenda, it then became "global warming". And yet again, when that was proven wrong and didn't fit their agenda it is now climate change. I'm trying to figure out what's next. Will they claim that climate isn't changing because of man? Who knows?
What is ridiculous is some of the things they come up with to blame it on. The biggest blame is on carbon emissions from fossil fuels. Well, that has been around for over 100 years. Yet, they are willing to destroy our economy to try to stop their use. I think the funniest thing I heard is that they blame it on cow flatulence! I cannot believe they believe this. And they want to kill the beef industry over this. Well let me tell you folks, cows are not the only living animals affected by this. Maybe they should go after the bean and broccoli industry.
Another bizarre aspect of this is what they believe that climate change causes. I watch a lot of news and shocked at some of the things they say that is caused by climate change. There are so many, but I will cover a couple. They blame the Russian takeover of Crimea and the creation of ISIS on climate change. I actually heard a high ranking government official say this on the news. They blame what is going on is Syria on climate change. They blame crime in some cities on climate change. I can go on, but I want to keep this article short.
What really shocks me is that for every "handpicked" scientist they produce that come up with "their own" facts on climate change, ten other scientists comes out and say that it is false. And even when some of their own scientists get caught cooking the books and admit to that they falsified their findings, they just ignore it.
And finally, most of the people that are out there preaching about climate change are the most hypocritical people in the world. They complain about it, but are not willing to practice what they preach. After they finish a climate change protest rally they get into their cars, trucks, and SUVs and head to their fossil fuel powered home. I don't know about you, but have you ever seen a bunch of bicycles and horses parked around those climate change protest rallies? And then you have the political elites and celebrities that get on the band wagon about climate change and afterwards, jump into their private plane or huge limo and head their fossil fuel powered mansion. And God help the person that tells them they are hypocrites and suggest they change their lifestyle to conform to what they are preaching.
Well anyway, I don't get these people. They change their direction when something doesn't fit their agenda. They blame climate change on some of the most absurd reasons. They come up with some of the most ludicrous things that climate change causes. They still believe their handpicked scientists even though they are proven wrong and admit to cooking the books. And most of all, they don't practice what they preach. What is wrong with these people? Well I am not going to try to figure them out. Sometimes they provide some humor in my life. But I hope they don't destroy our economy in doing so.
