Hundreds of people gathered in New York, dressed in colorful, elaborate costumes and carrying comic banners of their favorite character. They were joined by super hero actors like Mark Ruffalo and Arnie Grape and among other figures of note, planet Earth’s very own Jor-El, Al Gore (The similarities in names is uncanny, like the X-Men) hoping to make a media spectacle and generate viral buzz of their latest movie or book.
Except this wasn’t about comic books and Game of Thrones.
Late last month, Hundreds of concerned cosplay activists, actors and entertainers, oil barons and apparently whats left of the Aztec empire crammed into Manhattan to protest the Earth on the eve of the UN climate summit under the hashtag #FloodWallSt and #PeopleClimateMarch, in the hopes of directing the world”s attention to the dangers of capitalism, the fuzzy perks of socialism, the people of Palestine and of course Global Warming.
The only thing missing were actual climatologists.
The climate cult has become an absurd theater of cartoonish smoke stack drawings, CGI ice shelves collapsing, actors accepting awards, politicians accepting awards, bow ties and overly dramatic PSA’s and bogus predictions, none of which mind you have anything in the least to do with scientific climate data of the Earth which is as of late is showing the natural evolution of the Earth’s climate cycle. The growing problem with every argument modern leftists are making is they increasingly refuse to be honest about what their arguments are really about. Abortion for example, is not about women’s health but population control and is directly tied to their Climate stalling obsession, as written about by Eugenicist John Holdren, a man held in such esteem that he currently serves as President Obama’s Science Czar. Holdren believes in science so ardently, he went as far as suggesting in his book Ecoscience that the United States government in cases of over population and climate crisis, should be able to force mass sterilizations upon the larger poverty stricken parts of society, quoting directly from his book:
”. Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.
Of course Ecoscience was written in the 1977 and surely the progressive elite no longer believes this. Except that Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated as much just last month.
As the culture under a President obsessed with social upheaval and activism slides further and further left the more they realize their time in spotlight is becoming shorter and shorter, the true nature and motives for “Protecting the Planet” become revealed for what all protest movements of the past 5 years have been about. Wealth destruction and downfall of capitalism. Such as the Trayvon Martin shooting couldn’t simply a case of mistaken identity, it was a larger protest about race and class. Occupy Wall St. which made such a mockery of its own message, it was forced to die off and come back re-branded under the guise of occupying climate, with the same goal; institutionalized socialism. The climate cult has abandoned any claim they had on science in favor of political stunts, giant puppets, elaborate costumes and a message of anti-corporation and anti-capitalism. But because they are enabled by a commerce killing, activist President who boldly proclaims the science is settled and the debate is over, their motives become more obvious.
At the climate summit at the UN, Leonardo DiCaprio, addressing the governing body said ““I am not a scientist, but I don’t need to be, because the world’s scientific community has spoken, and they have given us our prognosis. If we do not act together, we will surely perish. Now is our moment for action.”
Republicans have used the “I’m not a scientist” line when asked about man made global warming and are ridiculed by the left, like for instance, Emily Atkin at Think Progress, who used this very line in a title to a piece that slammed “anti-science” Republican Senate candidates. But when Think Progress published a piece on Dicaprio donating two million dollars to his own foundation, they used the very same quote from above.
Intellectual consistency is also a science.
None of what #FloodWallSt or Commie Con applies to climate science but that doesn’t matter. It’s the loudest voices and the brightest costumes that get noticed just as John Oliver demonstrated when he brought Bill Nye and his spinning bow tie out on his stage surrounded by actors in white lab coats to shout down another actor (The lab coats represents the Obama administration statistic of 97% consensus of climatologists). John Oliver unwittingly laid waste to the entire progressive argument as it applies to the climate of the planet. Climatologists aren’t the majority, but we progressives are.
This isn’t just educated hypothesis. This theory was demonstrated on the weekend of the climate march.
The same weekend as this costumed convention of the Hollywood absurd was dancing its way across Manhattan with their balloons and their puppets, a report surfaced from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration surfaced in the LA Times, stating the naturally occurring effects of climate warming:
“Changes in ocean circulation as a result of weaker winds were the main cause of about 1 degree Fahrenheit of warming in the northeast Pacific Ocean and nearby coastal land between 1900 and 2012, according to the analysis of ocean and air temperatures over that time.”
The story from the LA Times goes on to quote climatologist James Johnstone who contributed to the study for University of Washington’s Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, “Changing winds appear to explain a very large fraction of the warming from year to year, decade to decade and the long-term.”
Was this report widespread and embedded into tweets of reporters, media or facebook posts of Neil Degrasse Tyson’s own personal cult? No. It was ignored.
What the progressive left is attempting to do with some marginal success, is shift the scientific conversation away from continuing climate studies to people in wigs and Captain Planet costumes.
Here was an actual scientific argument being made about the natural warming of the planet, but it didn’t fit into their political agenda of the Koch Bros and the evils of capitalism. The Earth’s own evolution of climate couldn’t overcome the hubris of a media cult in brightly colored spandex. Instead the focus was on a parade of people dressing up like the ancient Aztecs bowing to a giant plastic god in the middle of 5th avenue. That’s who got the attention.
John Oliver will not be OBLITERATING any dissent to that report.
It’s clear what’s happening inside the Climate Cult movement is not the methodology and practice of scientific climate theory. The Earth doesn’t adhere to the whims of the ever changing progressive vocabulary (Global warming, climate change, climate disruption), just like the Earth doesn’t care if 8 million people happen to reside in the path of a category five hurricane. If climate data has to be hidden, forged or enhanced in any way, it’s not science. That debate has actually been settled. The question shouldn’t be why there are climate change deniers. No one denies climate change, and they know it. No matter what kind of word salad leftists and socialists try to create in dishonest attempts to paint anyone that raises an eyebrow when they are asked to don a cape or bow down to a tiki torch. We do however, very vehemently, deny the climate cult.
The Climate cult is a religion, complete with inquisitions, elaborate costumes, celebrations of the birth of their founding, doomsday prophecies and imaginary idols. It’s positively Jor-Ellian, the idea that a political ideology can stop the natural warming and cooling progressions of an entire planet.
It’s a religion that is just over a hundred and thirty years old, trying to dictate to the rest of us that evolutionary patterns of a planet that is 4.5 billion years old are just a theory and a myth. They even have a power point presentation they like to impose on people with their own scientific beliefs. They are Climate Evolution Deniers; the absolute rejection that the planet through its own natural behavior changes, adapts and evolves to the conditions inside it. The Earth changes and has changed naturally for billion of years, yet a small minority of cosplay activists believe the Earth should remain a static temperature at all times.
The rest of us are pro Earth and pro Climate Evolution. If the progressive left and Hollywood want to deny evolution, they’re free to try. If the climate cult wants to become a frothing seething imitation of Comic Con, they’re certainly welcome to It would not however be the scientific thing to do.
A better solution for Gore-El would be investing his millions in oil money into a Richard Branson designed rocket ship for him and his friends in Hollywood in search of a new planet to inhabit and leave the rest of us alone.
