FT189: “The problem with lying is that you can’t keep everyone ignorant forever.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Global Warming Activists are Anti-Capitalists who want the US to be a European Social Democracy

Democrats lie.  It’s the only way they can advance a liberal agenda the people don’t want.  In the Nineties they warned us about impending doom from manmade global warming.  They said their science told them that within a decade global temperatures would rise so much that the polar icecaps would melt.  And the rising oceans would flood our coastlines.  While the hotter temperatures would turn our fertile farmland into desert.  The left wasn’t saying this could happen.  They were saying it was going to happen.

Well, it didn’t.  Every dire prediction they made didn’t happen.  The polar icecaps are still there.  Our coastlines are still there.  Our farmlands are still fertile.  In fact, they’re so fertile that America has an obesity problem.  Because we’re eating too much food.  And we’re eating too much food because we are growing so much food thanks to those fertile farmlands.  Why, we’re growing so much food that we’re using a large portion of our corn crop to make ethanol to burn in our cars.

So either the global warming crowd was so very wrong.  Or they were lying the whole time.  Why would they lie?  Well, who exactly are the global warming activists?  They’re not Republicans.  They’re not conservatives.  They’re liberals.  And it just so happens that they want the same thing liberal democrats want.  An ever growing regulatory environment strangling our businesses.  For these people are, generally, anti-capitalists.  Who want the United States to become a European social democracy.  Where there is fairness.  Egalitarianism.  And no rich people.  Other than those in government.

The Climate Scientists were wrong about Manmade Global Warming and their Hurricane Predictions

Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and costliest hurricane to hit the United States.  And the left said, “See?  Global warming.”  Not only that they said this was only the beginning.  And because of manmade global warming we could expect a lot more Hurricane Katrinas.  In fact, it was a sure thing.  Manmade global warming was going to fill the hurricane season with a lot more hurricanes.  And a lot of them would be Hurricane Katrina bad.  Or worse.  And you could take that to the bank.  Because their mathematical models proved this.

Well, it turned out these mathematical models were wrong.  Since Katrina we’ve had nothing but mild hurricane seasons.  Exactly the opposite of what the climate scientists said we would have.  In fact, it took 7 years before we experienced another storm nearly as destructive as Katrina.  Hurricane Sandy.  Or Superstorm Sandy.  As it wasn’t quite a hurricane.  Though it was destructive.  It wasn’t Hurricane Katrina destructive.  Like the climate scientists said most hurricanes would be like following Katrina.

So either the climate scientists were just very bad at science.  Or they’ve been lying.  Or both.  During the Seventies these same brilliant scientists were upset that the world’s governments wouldn’t heed their warnings and start storing food for the coming ice age.  For they said it was a sure thing.  And there was nothing we could do about it. Then another decade or so later these same climate scientists were warning us about global warming.  Which was then a sure thing.  As global cooling and ice ages was so yesterday’s climate.

The Left is Good at Lying because they keep the People Ignorant and Gullible

Today business is strangled by environmental regulations.  The government is waging war against inexpensive and reliable coal-fired power plants.  While spending our tax dollars on costly and unreliable renewable energy.  Australia has a carbon tax.  And Europe has an emissions trading scheme.  To charge power plants, businesses, airlines, etc., for the carbon they exhaust into the atmosphere.  Adding layers and layers of costs to everything we buy.  All because the climate scientists said we were causing global warming.  Warming the same planet they said was cooling a few decades earlier.

They were wrong.  As they are on most things.  In fact, they are some of the most ignorant smart people in the world.  The political left.  Who want to run our lives because they are so much smarter than we are.  Yet their track record shows that they are not smarter than us.  Or that they’re just very good liars.  Who can tell the same lie over and over again and people will believe it.  Like global warming.  Or their Keynesian economic policies.  Policies that have given us the Great Depression.  The stagflation of the Seventies.  Japan’s Lost Decade.  The dot-com bubble and recession.  The subprime mortgage crisis.  And, of course, the European sovereign debt crisis.

Yet the left is very good at winning elections.  And that’s because they are such good liars.  For all of their policies are politically driven.  They don’t care about manmade global warming.  They just want to control the economy.  So they can pick winners and losers.  And enrich themselves.  Which is why they will tell the same lie over and over again.  Because they are so good at lying.  And the people are so gullible.  Because they are so ignorant.  Thanks to our public schools.  Which are controlled by the left (the teacher unions aren’t filling Republican campaign coffers).  The problem with lying to advance your agenda, though, is that you can’t keep everyone ignorant forever.  Eventually people grow up.  They raise families and feel the direct result of the left’s costly policies.  They live through 2 decades where there was no warming.  They see few hurricanes despite predictions of record hurricane seasons.  That’s why the left works so hard for the youth vote.  Because they are just too young to have experienced these things.  Young and dumb.  The ideal Democrat voter.  Who vote for the party that says sex is okay.  And drugs aren’t that bad.  Unlike their parents.  Who are old enough to have experienced the left being so wrong for so long.
