Lefties take money, too
In an interview with far-left New York Times, activist and part-time scientist Michael Oppenheimer says “nothing follows” from his taking moola from the EDF (Environmental Defense Fund; a radical group which awards “environmental justice grants”) and a “few hundred thousand from Barbara Streisand”.
Yet earlier in the interview, Oppenheimer suggests skeptical climate scientists like Willie Soon who accept funds from non-governmental sources cannot be trusted.
Oppenheimer is not a hypocrite. Science is a political tool to the Enlightened. Ideology says that capitalism must go, to be replaced by managed-from-above community of property. Therefore Science must—will—say the same thing. This is why the Science is “settled.” It is settled. It was settled long before we understood how poor climate models are. It will remain settled well after we recognize the world will not end in heat doom.
I’ve been invited to speak at Heartland’s Tenth International Conference on Climate Change June 11 and 12th in DC on the subject of “attacks on scientists and the corruption of science.” Boy, do I know about that.
Bonus! Rumor has it that something to do with the much-anticipated Climate Hustle will also happen at this meeting. Could it be a premier? I won’t say. I can say that Yours Truly is in that documentary. Stay tuned for updates.
Autograph hounds are cautioned to bring their own pens.
More proof wasn’t needed, but here from Nature magazine is witness that Science equals politics. “Global-warming limit of 2?oC hangs in the balance: Panel creates scientific baseline for debate about climate reparations.”
Reparations? Meaning redistributing monies from those who have lots to those who have little. And who could argue with that? It sounds fair. “Led by low-lying island nations and many of the poorest countries — which are likely to be hit hardest by rising seas and extreme weather…” We never tire of the old joke “World Ends: Poor Hardest Hit” do we.
“For many poor countries, the debate is about social justice…” Thus speaks a mind already made up. Climatology is social justice, Science is politics.
Last week, Congresswoman “Barbara Lee proposed a resolution in the House of Representatives that claims women will eventually be forced into prostitution in order to obtain life-sustaining food and water for their families.”
“Women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change,” Lee’s resolution reads. It continues claiming, “Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”
Science is politics. I’ll let you guess the Congresswoman’s party.
Ever notice how progressives (and neocons) always want to “fight” whatever it is they’re against? Fight HIV, fight cancer, fight global warming, fight fight fight. How militaristic.
For fun, I searched “join the fight against” and found I could take up arms against: extreme poverty, sexism, ISIS, hydro rates (yes), muscular atrophy, cruelty, women’s cancers (men deserve what’s coming to them), human trafficking, and many more.
Why, even “Feared terror group al-Qaeda discussed strategies to combat CLIMATE CHANGE“. Hard to behead climate, though.
If only we could join forces and fight together to combat the climate from changing! Why, if we spill enough of the right blood, we can keep the climate from changing completely. Yes, a complete static climate is what we’re after. We won’t stand for anything else! Let’s march! Let’s craft giant puppets!
Remember the debate over climate model goodness which ensued when our world-shaking “Why models run hot” came out?
Neither do I. Instead, panicked progressives, for whom the Science is settled, and despite loud and insistent warnings from people such as Yours Truly, managed to change the subject. And we let them.
Now don’t you feel back? Let’s get back to what’s really important, shall we?
