After reading an essay at Watts Up With That?, I have come to the conclusion that in the interest of the U.S. taxpayer, RICO hearings about global warming funds should be held.
I’d be willing to bet the U.S. government cannot even give us a total on the money confiscated from our wallets and handed over to mostly government funded organizations.
The essay I read was actually about another column written by advocate Steve Zwick. Zwick’s background is in media and those nasty little economic meltdown stimuli we call derivatives. As best I can tell—I searched for hours—Zwick has no background in a scientific field related to manmade global warming. Yet this man advocates for imposing his own scientific claims on the rest of us.
Here’s what Zwick wrote at Forbes:
“We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices.”
This is typical of a class of people who have likely never lived in a rural area where what you eat is what you grow or raise. Work alongside Mother Nature every day and you soon learn there’s little romance—she can be a vicious co-worker. Live long enough and you will see things in nature that defy belief, such as the time my daughters and I watched a squirrel scoot up a tree with a plastic poinsettia in his mouth. He was not hungry, by the way. Courtesy of many nut trees, he was a fat little squirrel.
I hope I meet Zwick one day so I can tell him what I think of his use of the term ‘denialist.’ Using that term to describe people who disagree with a particular theory is probably the lowest level I’ve ever seen in politics. Prostituting that term is despicable and anyone who does so should be tarred and feathered. Literally.
Billions of our dollars have been diverted to what amounts to a cartel—government allied “experts” and financiers. Yet there is little transparency, even when scandals occur. The impact of this policy on the U.S. economy has been devastating and is also partly responsible for the economic meltdown. Our electricity bills have “skyrocketed,” just as our president hoped.
When the cost of energy rises, the cost of everything rises.
One of Zwick’s fellow warming advocates suggested that those of us who disagree with government spawned theory should be sued. Once again, the political class would erase the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Numerous experts have questioned current policy based on science by consensus. Most media will not address those questions.
If you don’t care about global warming or if you’re not interested in it, then you are a sitting duck. The policies the government-warmist coalition supports will seriously impact your personal comfort and your wallet.
Americans deserve to know where our money has gone. We deserve to hear both sides of this debate. We also deserve to know who is funding the media who promote one side of a story so shamelessly you don’t even have to read the content if the article has to do with global warming.
We need to know why, after some of those warming claims collapsed, the government then began to use the term ‘climate change.’
Americans deserve answers and we deserve transparency of the data our tax dollars paid for. We also, in my opinion, deserve redress and reparations.
