Regulating the world back to the Stone Age in the name of Global Warming Hysteria

If Del Boy was around today, he’d be trading in carbon offsets

From the New York Times, December 12: Soviet scientists on board an icebreaker drifting just 300 miles from the North Pole have concluded that the world is getting hotter. Warm-water fish are appearing in increasing numbers in Arctic seas as temperatures have risen, melting the ice caps.

The Russian explorers believe that very soon ships will be able to sail right across the Pole. This news will be welcomed by ‘global warming’ campaigners – except that it first appeared on December 12, 1938, and has just been republished on a website run by a former TV meteorologist, who treats the whole ‘climate change’ racket with a healthy dose of sea salt.

The Soviet scientists also concluded that the warmer weather was almost certainly down to the rays of the sun.

And they added it would be rash to prophesy the duration of these higher temperatures, since the Ice Age was followed immediately by a period of much hotter summers than they were experiencing in the Thirties – the warmest decade of the 20th century, as it turned out.

A few short years later, by 1947, the ice caps were restored to their former glory and Britain experienced one of the harshest winters on record, lasting well into March.  We’re going through another one this year. November was the coldest for three decades.

We even had snow in October, on the day the Commons was debating its ludicrous, self-important ‘climate change’ bill.  That was the same month China‘s official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its ‘worst snowfall ever’.

Across the world, temperatures have plummeted. There was snow in Las Vegas this week. Much of North America has been hit by an ice-storm.

In Canada, there’s 30 per cent more ice than last year and the polar bears, who are supposed to be on the brink of extinction, are breeding at an alarming rate.

None of this has in any way deterred the ‘global warming’ fascists. They dismiss this glaring, incontrovertible evidence as a ‘blip’ and continue to insist the world is burning up.

In the words of Rod Stewart’s Mandolin Wind: 

The coldest winter in almost

fourteen years,

Could never, never change

your mind.

Never mind fourteen years, we’re talking about the coldest winter in 30 years.

And still they won’t admit to even a smidgeon of doubt about the wilder excesses of their scaremongering.  Whenever they are presented with evidence which contradicts their world view, they either ignore it or fiddle the figures to pretend it doesn’t exist.

When temperatures hit the 90s in August, it’s proof of ‘global warming’. When they drop below zero in October, that’s down to ‘climate change’.

Nay-sayers are portrayed as deranged bay-bee killers and dismissed as ‘deniers’ – an offensive slander designed to equate sceptics with those nutters who insist the Holocaust didn’t happen.

That’s because this isn’t about the planet, it’s all about them.

‘Global warming’ gives them a reason to believe, provides meaning and purpose to their dismal little lives.  As the wise old G.K. Chesterton observed, when people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing – they believe in anything.

In an increasingly secular Britain, ‘climate change’ is the new religion.

You don’t get much fuss about ‘global warming’ in the Islamic world.

[A personal note here – This is a very good point. I have been following the Arabic press on and off for a long time, not the English version with is for ”external” consumption by the west, but the ”internal” one.

And there is zip, nada, niente talk about how they are going to ”cope” with Global Warming, ”change” their lifestyle and cut down on consumption etc.

The comments that are, are a smudge self glee about how we in the west are self destructing with all these crazy economic policies, tax increases etc. That our intelligent politicians are forcing on us in the name of Global Warming Hysteria.]

And it’s no coincidence that so many of those most active in the great ‘global warming’ crusade used to sign up to communism and the more extreme, headbanging fringes of Far Left politics.

Mainstream politicians clamber on the solar-powered bandwagon because it allows them to posture as self-righteous friends of the Earth, while giving them licence to raise taxes, spend public money and impose ever tighter controls on the population as a whole.

In Britain, that translates into dearer petrol and scrapping weekly rubbish collections, backed by an exciting new range of fines and punishments.

It also justifies a giant job creation scheme for Guardian readers. It’s about power, not saving the planet.

The central conceit is that everything which happens on Earth revolves around them and that they are the only people who can fix it.

They tend to overlook the fact that the Earth managed perfectly well for millions of years before they were born and will manage quite nicely millions of years after they are gone.  They deliberately confuse pollution with ‘climate change’.

Of course we need to find alternative energy supplies and reduce emissions where we can.

But that shouldn’t mean regulating the world back to the Stone Age. And as for the great ‘carbon’ con, hasn’t anyone noticed that plants and trees live on CO2?

If Arthur Daley was around today, he’d be running a carbon trading scheme out of his lock-up in Acton.

Del Boy Trotter would be selling carbon offsetting forms from a suitcase on Peckham market. When it comes to tackling pollution, the Mail’s campaign against plastic bags has done more for the environment than any crackpot scheme dreamed up by bureaucrats.

Needless to say, the BBC has bought into the ‘climate change’ scam lock, stock and windmill.

Have you noticed how, whenever there’s a story about ‘global warming’ it’s usually accompanied by that film of a polar bear stranded on a ice floe?

It’s the same bear, time and again, just like they used to replay endlessly the same footage of that one mad cow during the BSE fiasco.

Incidentally, back in 1938, they weren’t so sentimental about polar bears.

The New York Times reported that whenever the Soviet expedition came across a polar bear, they shot it for food.

‘Several bears have been encountered and they provided fresh meat for the party.’

Given that we are told ‘global warming’ presents such an ominous threat to agriculture, and the exhaust gases of cattle contribute greatly to the non-existent hole in the ozone layer, maybe we should start farming polar bears. That would save them from extinction.

I wonder if I could get a grant for it.
