Climate Change shenanigans and other ridiculous nonsense.
On Friday, Alexandria “She Guevara” Ocasio-Cortez held a town hall with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and discussed the abominable “Green New Deal”. In it she makes some rather stupid statements:
All she ever does is portray herself as a doom and gloom fortune teller. Unless we follow her lead, all of us are in for the most horrible destruction ever witnessed against mankind.
It’s not like Climate Change hasn’t hurt our civilization in the past. This according to knowledgeable liberals:
When you read the linked article from the tweet, it doesn’t mention anything about sea level rise. Instead, it talks about the demise of certain groups – the Mayans, the Vikings, and the Khmer empire who suddenly died out because of “climate change”.
The common thread in those examples has more to do with the inability of those groups to adapt to their changing environment. They simply didn’t have the technology, or even the engineering and scientific abilities to save themselves from the hazards of climate change or even disease.
Consider that in the last 150 years, the planet’s human population has exploded almost 8 fold. It is a direct result of advancements in technology to deliver quality food, clean water and life-saving health care systems. People are simply living longer thanks to these achievements in engineering, science and technology.
Included in this basic formula is the exploitation of “fossil fuels” by way of the combustible engine. While mankind made huge progress under the steam engine, it wasn’t long before someone figured out how to use petroleum distillate in a contraption that could deliver far greater power cheaply and with greater efficiency. This single invention is responsible for the greatest advancements in human civilization.
Now we’re being told our advances will bring us doom because the planet is changing more rapidly than ever and not in a good way. The evidence for this doesn’t lie in the scientific observations of the climate – it resides in outputs from computer programs developed by activist scientists who want to change the world’s political systems to global socialism.
These same scientists have been spending enormous piles of government money fudging their science to paint the picture that our own vices have placed us on a path of mortal destruction. Not surprising, they have a solution: Stop using fossil fuels and tax the ever living hell out of rich people. I’m sure there is ample political and historical evidence of such policies delivering mankind from disaster.
However, no one, even a climate scientist, is able to predict the future. If they could, they should now be able to predict with fairly good precision when a hurricane will form and where it will hit. Are computers smart enough to do that? No, but don’t tell that to the scientists saying “trust our math, even though it couldn’t predict past.”
Indeed, the same mathematical wizardry in forecasting the planet’s future that all life on the planet is decimated within a decade or two has no evidence to back it up. The conditions in which prior civilizations have waned or even failed has more to do with how they failed to adapt. Viewed another way, the conditions in which they prospered was a result of a favorable climate. Sadly, even if they had access to a computer and could understand it’s output, their fates had already been sealed.
The truth is you can’t predict the future any more than you can predict when the climate will change for the worse. All we have to do is look at the thousands of micro and dozens of macro predictions posed by doomsayers and climate scientists that have passed without ever becoming true. One incontrovertible fact remains: We are still here and so is the planet that is teaming with life.
And yet, people like She Guevara have bought into the hype. Despite her lying eyes, she chooses to believe something neither she nor the computers tell us. What do you think will happen when the world is still here with life flouring in a decade?
It’s utterly ridiculous.
