Global Warming, aka Climate Change, has Nothing to do with ‘Saving the Planet’

Al Gore is not a nervous wreck over climate change like many of his loyal followers because he knows that:  a) the world really isn’t being destroyed by global warming, and b) that he is a member of the privileged ruling elite class that will always be immune to the draconian policies that the global warming movement is inflicting on the United States and the world. His only real worry is whether he can continue to earn hundreds of millions of dollars by serving as the primary spokesman for the climate change movement.
“I don’t have a private jet. I live a carbon-free lifestyle.” – Al Gore
Al Gore’s pronouncement is just as misleading as everything else he has said about global warming. His lifestyle can hardly be described as ‘carbon-free’. While he has been careful not to actually purchase his own private jet, he borrows and charters such jets all the time to fly around the world in Gulfstream luxury. The National Center for Public Policy Research reported that his Tennessee home consumes 21 times the electricity than that of the average American family. The electricity used to heat his swimming pool alone would power six homes for a year.
Does Al Gore spend much time worrying about the extent to which he is destroying the planet? Is he concerned about how much carbon dioxide he spews into the upper atmosphere as he flies around the world in private jets? Does he feel guilty about the $70 million deposited into his personal bank accounts from the sale of his Current TV network to al-Jazeera (owned by the oil-rich nation of Qatar)? Does he lose sleep at night thinking about all of the low and middle income families that have been made ‘energy poor’ as a result of the energy policies that he espouses?
Motivations of the Climate Change Movement
The greed exhibited by Al Gore is just one of many secondary motives driving the global warming movement. For the scientific community, another basic motivation is self-preservation. Even the most objective scientist cannot fail to recognize that: 

1) Most of the unelected bureaucrats in charge of federal research funding and government laboratories are now progressive socialists

2) Most of the professors at major colleges and universities in control of the peer review process are now progressive socialists

3) Most of the editors at major publishing houses and media outlets are now progressive socialists

4) Many administrators and teachers within the public school system are now progressive socialists

The vast majority of these socialists are completely intolerant of any ideas that run counter to mainstream progressive dogma. Therefore, most scientists now know that they must be careful to exhibit ‘politically correct’ behavior in order to survive. Anyone who dares to challenge any of the cornerstones of the global warming movement will be viciously attacked. Scientists know that if they are labeled as ‘climate deniers’ it will be difficult for them to obtain research funding, publish papers, or even stay employed. 
The reality is that global warming is a political⏤rather than a scientific issue and has nothing to do with ‘saving the planet’.
A clear demonstration of this fact is provided by the text of the 2015 Paris Agreement. This document states that climate action must include concern for “gender equality, empowerment for women, and intergenerational equity” as well as “climate justice”. Governments around the world are being advised that all of these steps must be implemented in order to mitigate the evils of global warming. 

The primary motive behind the global warming movement is political ideology. The Cold War never ended. It is currently being fought every single minute of every single day within the boundaries of every nation on Earth. 

The socialist leaders of the global warming movement represent one dimension of this war. These socialists believe that the world and all people in it should be controlled by a massive all-seeing and all-knowing and in fact tyrannical  government.
To these people, capitalism and free markets are evil. Personal freedom and democracy are evil. As the United States represents the primary embodiment of these attributes, America is in their eyes an evil empire that needs to be destroyed. As America is currently too strong to be defeated militarily, its destruction must be accomplished from within.
Fossil fuels represent the primary source of affordable energy for the United States and the entire world. Fossil fuels power all democracies and free market economies, providing people with a standard of living that is unmatched in the history of the world. The industrialized world cannot function without affordable energy. Affordable energy is critical for providing heat and electricity to homes and businesses, as well as for all forms of modern transportation. The entire economic system of modern democracies would collapse without affordable energy. Unfortunately, this collapse is precisely what the worldwide socialist movement desires. This is why attacks on fossil fuels are so relentless. 

This is why the socialist movement is devoting so much attention to the global warming movement. They have no intention of ‘saving the planet’. Their goal is to seize total control of the planet and all people in it.    

The climate change community is constantly warning people that the Earth is approaching a ‘tipping point’ beyond which it will be beyond saving. In reality, democratic societies may be approaching a tipping point beyond which the damage caused by the global warming movement becomes irreversible.  
It is fortunate that archival temperature records still exist that conclusively show that the Earth’s climate has been oscillating due to natural solar cycles rather than warming due to fossil fuel emissions. These climate records have yet to be deleted or completely replaced using massive computer programs. 
It is fortunate that we have access to satellites that can scan the entire globe to obtain accurate climate information in spite of attempts by the progressive climate change community to control, manipulate, and pervert this data.
The temperature of the Earth is not spiraling out of control. Global temperatures have really only increased by 0.3oC since 1900. In fact, the current climate is cooler now than it was in 1930 prior to the era of extensive fossil fuel emissions.
There is no evidence that CO2 emissions have had any impact on the Earth’s temperature. Conversely, there is abundant chemical and geologic evidence pointing to the fact that existing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and methane should have a negligible if any impact on Earth’s climate.
Man caused Global Warming or Climate Change is indeed a delusion.

They might claim they are “socialists”, but they’re something far worse.
An actual true believer in socialism would be imposing it on everyone everywhere. But, that’s not the plan. Once everyone becomes wholly dependent on government for there every want and need, the administrators of this “socialism” will have the leverage to force everyone to accept any commands they choose to issue. To get your food, home and clothing, one will be expected to obey. The only one’s who eill be allowed to make choices will be the central planners. Even now, they are attempting to dictate what we may eat, drink or otherwise ingest.
They will become a new royalty and will exempt themselves from any of the restrictions we will be forced to endure.

Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris assert, “The reality is that global warming is a political⏤rather than a scientific issue…” However, the scientific evidence of human-caused climate change is both robust and compelling. (Source Chapter 2: Physical Drivers of Climate Change, Volume I, NCA4)
Mr. Harris & Dr. Lehr have to promote false conspiracy theories because they have no rational argument to support their pro-fossil fuel agenda. Climate scientists and those who accept the scientific evidence are not just wrong but “evil.” According the Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris, they want to destroy, “capitalism and free markets,” “personal freedom and democracy” and the United States. Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr political arguments are less than weak.
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris assert, “Global temperatures have really only increased by 0.3oC since 1900. In fact, the current climate is cooler now than it was in 1930 prior to the era of extensive fossil fuel emissions” however their assertions are not supported by the scientific evidence. “Though warming has not been uniform across the planet, the upward trend in the globally averaged temperature shows that more areas are warming than cooling. According to the NOAA 2018 Global Climate Summary, the combined land and ocean temperature has increased at an average rate of 0.07°C (0.13°F) per decade since 1880; however, the average rate of increase since 1981 (0.17°C / 0.31°F) is more than twice as great.” (Source “Climate Change: Global Temperature” by Rebecca Lindsey and LuAnn Dahlman, September 19, 2019, NOAA)

This Disqus profile – https://disqus.com/by/disqus_JzQ88MTX2I/following/ – shows that since March 31, 2016, Mr. James has made 3,733 comments. Here is a sample of some of his many, many posts apparently trying to discredit my writings in online article comment sections: https://www.google.ca/search?site=&source=hp&q=%22Tom+Harris%22+%22Dave+James%22&gws_rd=cr&ei=nyGDWefuDavcjwSb-oK4DA . I already explained to Mr. James that many of his points are either wrong or misleading . I will not waste any more time explaining this to him, unless other people bring up the same or similar questions.

Tom Harris is mistaken. It is his words which impact his credibility not mine. Mr. Harris writing he has shown my criticisms of the content of his opinion piece are “either wrong or misleading” some where else at some other time is an unconvincing dodge.
Mr. Harris opinion that support is opinion piece is a waste of his time is telling.

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda.

Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it.

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families.

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”

Indeed there are extremists here in this country that we need to be concerned with. They are the career politicians who stay in office for decades, an ‘extreme’ length of time for anyone to hold political office. And Barack Obama is an extremist. After all, he wants to “fundamentally transform” the United States…
