Climate Alarmists: “We don’t need no stinking facts”

Climate alarmism dominated the Obama era.

But now, things have changed.

  • President Trump has pulled the United States out of the “all pain/no gain” Paris Accords;
  • The EPA is reversing anti-fossil fuel programs, such as the Clean Power Plan, rooted in doom-and-gloom climatology;
  • America is producing and exporting dramatically more oil, gas and coal; and
  • Developing nations are burning vastly more of these fuels.

And it’s not just an American phenomenon. The alarmists are also appalled that Poland is openly challenging EU climate regulations, and German, British, Australian and other politicians are voicing increasing concerns about job-killing, eco-unfriendly “green” energy.”

Notably, these events have made climate alarmists even more bizarre, dogmatic and intolerant. But that should come as no surprise. With trillions of dollars in renewable energy subsidies, wealth redistribution schemes, and research grants endangered, in addition to the power, prestige, and dreams of international governance up in the air, the $1.5-trillion-per-year Climate Industrial Complex is not taking the situation lying down.

Today, climate fear-mongering is in full swing!

Tried-and-true scare stories still dominate the daily news, often with new wrinkles tied to current events.

Of course, that was before fiendishly frigid conditions repeatedly postponed events and drove spectators from Korean slopes.

But of course, bitter cold is “exactly what we should expect” from the global warming “crisis,” said “Climate disaster” expert Al Gore, who got a “C” and a “D” in the only two science courses he took in college. It’s reminiscent of his dire predictions that the Arctic would be ice-free by 2010 (or 2015 or 2025). And remember the claim, “children just aren’t going to know what snow is;” that’s not been heard a lot since record cold and snow battered the UK a couple years later.

We’re likewise constantly propagandized with deliberate falsehoods about so-called “carbon pollution...
