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.

One Size Fits All is the Very Essence of Socialism

One Size Fits All is the Very Essence of Socialism

They blame it all on the unvaccinated because Socialists would rather people die a few years down the road from implanted myocardia heart disease injected by mandated vac’s into all Americans today. The pushback has caused the government to turn to bureaucratic bureaus (OSHA) to mandate that all American citizens submit to unproven one-size-fits-all vaccinations and constantly wear face coverings that are useless…

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

Wind is even more intermittent than you could imagine, abruptly varying its energy output. Every turbine has a range of wind speeds, usually between 30 miles per hour (mph) and 55 mph, in which it will produce its maximum rated electric output. At lower speeds, the production falls off considerably. At wind speeds above the maximum rate for a turbine, the blades…

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…
