"Climate alarmists pose real threat to freedom" - The Australian, March 12, 2008

"NYC Climate Conference Further Debunks 'Consensus' Claims" - Hawaii Reporter, March 13, 2008

"Weather Channel Founder: Sue Al Gore for Fraud" - Fox News, March 14, 2008



Global warming and cooling, according to our more down-to-earth earth-sciences scientists, seem to occur in 1,500-year cycles. People's lifespans - something like 35 years or so for century after century before capitalism came along and, much to the chagrin of lefty hollow-head Marxist anti-capitalists who still blindly deny it, extended the average life expectancy out to 70 or 80 years or so - were just too short for people grubbing in the ground for their grub in the form of grub worms to take much notice of these great climate shifts.


Today it seems that we are living in one of those 1,500-year transition periods. The last cold period, known to climatologists and historians (but not to the mass population of the Earth who refuse to read history) as the Little Ice Age, ended sometime around the year 1850. In Geologic Years, that was just a New York second ago.


So, what causes an ice age, even a "little" one, to end? Could it be a general warming trend? The Little Ice Age, as those aforementioned climatologists and historians know, was preceded by a warm spell called the Medieval Warm Period, and will now be followed by another warm spell, one that faithful anti-libertarian post-postmodern envirozealots have dubbed Global Warming.


This is just the Earth's all-natural roller coaster ride; warm to cold to warm to cold, ad infinitum. Why do people like climatologists and politicians and airhead Hollywood camera fodder insist that this particular warming cycle, unlike all of the warming cycles throughout the history of the planet up until now, is caused by human activity? Could it be that politicians are doing what politicians have always done - grubbing for money, power, and ego-enlargement by claiming so? That climatologists who rely on taxpayer-funded subsidies doled out by those same grubby politicians are grubbing in the system for the academic version of money, power, and ego-enlargement? That airhead Hollywood peckerheads who emote for a living just don't know any better?


Based on history (that stuff people hate to read), the planet will warm or cool until it determines its own equilibrium with neither help nor hindrance from the self-serving Global Warmingcrats, and then level off for 1,500 years or so. What we call "catastrophic" will be "normal" to our great grandkids, who will ask their teachers "What was all that hysteria back in the Olden Days about Global Warming?" And if our great grand offspring and their teachers are living in a libertarian society where teachers are free to tell the truth rather than culturally coerced into parroting government-scripted propaganda, the answer will be, "Global Warming was politicized by people addicted to money, power, and ego, or were Hollywood peckerheads. Next question."


Of course, it's always possible that our progeny will be forced to deal with their own snake-oil peddlers:


"We Social and Political Geniuses must impose ever-escalating taxation on all you lesser human grub worms so we can stop the man-made volcanoes and the man-made tsunamis and the man-made lightning strikes and the man-made continental drift that causes man-made earthquakes and the man-made axis tilt that makes Earth wobble in its orbit and causes variations in the weather. You grub worms must make these sacrifices even as we continue to enjoy our limos and Learjets and lakeside lodges. If you don't, we will all die!"


The worst thing that could happen for the money-power-ego crowd would be a man-made Global Normal Period, which would not be man-made, of course, but merely that natural little New York second between the 1,500-year hot and cold roller coaster rides.


What will our brilliant professional hucksters do then? Find real jobs?

Lets take folks OUTSIDE-OF the felony called capitalism, instead of CONTINUOUSLY and EVERYWHERE talking about the arguing going-on inside. Can we? Or will I be censored? Lets find out.

Readers, you DO see the pyramid scheme symbol on the back of the USA one dollar bill, right? You DO see the servitude infestation in capitalism, right? And do you see the "pay up or lose your wellbeing" Chicago mob-like felony extortion widespread within capitalism? Do you see the "join or starve" felony extortion done to the 18 year olds... by this ugly competer's church called capitalism?

See how forcing competer's religions onto 18 year olds (get a job!!!)... kills membership in the cooperator's church (Christianity/socialism)?? Do you understand that AmWay (American Way) (New World Order) got "the exclusive" on the TYPE of survival coupons (money) accepted in supply depots (stores) and leverages 18 years olds into the organization via that felony activity as well?

Do you understand how farmyard pyramids work... from your childhood?? Remember?? Upper 1/3 are "heads in the clouds" while the kids on the bottom ALWAYS GET HURT from the weight of the world's knees in their backs? Still with me?

Do you see anything illegal, immoral, or just plain sick... in any of this pyramid scheme's activities?

Us American Christian socialists are still patiently awaiting the natural fall of the pyramid-o-servitude, or the busting of the free marketeers felony... by the USA Dept of Justice. Us Christians are VERY CLOSE to issuing a cease and desist order on capitalism... until the servitude and inequality goes away... which means it turns into a commune. Commune is a word we LOVE when used in the word "community"... but its one the caps HATE when used in the term "commune-ism". Go fig. PROGRAMMED!!

Time to level the felony pyramid scheme called capitalism. Abolish economies and ownershipism worldwide, and hurry. Economies just cause rat-racing, and rat-racing causes felony pyramiding. BUST IT, America! Look to the USA military supply/survival system... for socialism and morals done right. Equal, owner-less, money-less, bill-less, timecard-less, luxury-repositoried, and concerned with growth of value-criteria OTHER THAN money-value. There are MANY measurement criteria of "value"... not just dollars. Try morals, efficiency, discrimination-levels, repairability, etc etc. Economies are cancerous tumors, and to cheer for their growth... is just insane. Profiting causes inflation, so if capitalists LIKE inflation, and if caps LIKE a terrible time in afterlife when they meet the planet's ORIGINAL OWNER before SOMETHING tried to squat it all with ownershipism, then keep it up with the felony pyramiding. I dare you.

While us Christians are finally bulldozing that pyramid scheme back to level, lets ALL make servitude and "join or starve" illegal in the USA, and lets level the architecture seen in USA courtrooms, too. Right now, USA courtrooms are church simulators or "fear chambers", by special design. Sick.

Take care, everyone.

I don't understand why the River Cities Reader continues to publish such incredible garbage. Many progressives use the River Cities Reader and are happy for the service. I love the arts coverage, but I am willing to go out of my way to encourage advertisers NOT to read this paper if it is to become the mouthpiece of anti-science, anti-intellectual bozos.

Where are the hundred or thousands of independent scientists who are speaking out against global warming? Of the thousands of climate scientists, are there 10 that wouldn't say that the planet is currently hitting the highest levels of atmospheric CO2 produced on the planet in the past several (note, not thousands) but millions of years? The last time CO2 levels were this high DINOSAURS were walking around.

Your computer is based on flimsier science.

Wingnut doesn't know what he is talking about. Inflation is caused by printing money. The reason we have high food and energy prices is because the Fed is printing tons and tons of money. Let's see, is the Fed a capitalist organization? Nope. It's a big, government, command economy started by President Wilson. So if the government screws up and trashes our economy by printing up so much paper money, do you really think we'll believe that a government commune is going to solve everything. And how about your little secret. Suppose you all get in power and you start your communes. Suppose I don't want to join your commune. Your government will show up with your guns and kill me. That is socialism, whether practiced by Stalin or National Socialist Hitler, or Mao. The U.S. is pretty much socialist anyway, so enjoy.

Hey progressives! Remember how you're supposed to hate guns? Well, legislation against global warming will result in MORE guns being pointed at MORE people and LESS progress around the world. That's a fact, jack.


What's so progressive about enriching the elite, giving them more control and more poor people's money while the developing world starves? That's what'll happen if you get you way. It's not enough for you guys to just live in accordance with your principles, setting an example and using your freedom of speech to convince other to do the same... NO! You gotta make a law! FORCE everyone to buy organic and shop at IKEA and drive a Prius. Lock 'em up with all those pot smokers if the get outta line! What a wonderful world it would be. :P

PS - Great article!

All you have to do is listen to the weather reports regularly to know what "climate scientists" are all about. The planetary weather system is too big and far too complicated to understand completely. That's why weather forcasting is so hit or miss(admittedly more hit than miss). They try to predict what systems are going to do by what systems have done in the past. There's plenty of "past" for long term climate oscillations but is there a "past" for global warming?

S'pose Al Gore will ever disclose the carbon debt of his hairdo?
