I guess the kids had fun, kids of all ages I might add, and the huge crowd of 200-300,000 carried signs supporting all things radical, including revolution as the means to their end while leaving tons of trash all over the route. There's just something about being a protester for the Left that keeps you from picking up after yourself. I guess the Sanitation Department is quite busy but, then again, under Mayor deBlasio trash is a routine occurrence in New York City.
Folks, don't kid yourselves, this is nothing to do with climate change and all to do with revolutionary institution of advanced socialism in the United States. The UN and it's international handlers have been pushing this for years and climate change in the name of a "better Mother Earth" has turned it into a religion. They don't want you to worship the God of Abraham but they want to force you to kneel in front of Gaia, the mythical earth God. Meanwhile, behind this cover they attack capitalism, a system which has afforded more people in the world with the opportunity to improve themselves than anything else. Socialism, on the other hand, always turns out poorly once the state runs out of someone else's money to spend. Margaret Thatcher said that better than anyone.
Now having put my two cents in, I want to make it clear that crony capitalism is not what I'm talking about with favor for it is nothing but a phony system where government picks the winners and losers while it skims a load of money off the top. In fact crony capitalism is ever apparent in the climate change movement, as questionable products and fuel sources are touted and supported with millions of our tax dollars while the country suffers from the consequences.
No, real capitalism is where someone has an idea, takes risk with his or her own financial resources, and makes it on their own. They are not guaranteed success, but if they can work their way through the process and produce a product that is a winner, they a rewarded accordingly. That is where real success comes from.
Don't think that I am opposed to caring for the earth. Why would I want to destroy the planet where I live and suffer because of it? I wouldn't. I just think that we need to look at things logically and measure things accurately, not doctor computer models with bad data and use them in place of reality. We have only kept records on climate for a very short period while the earth has been around for many thousand of years. Why would we want to believe a computer model when empirical data shows otherwise?
A prime example today is the current global cooling phase but, oh that's right, the climate changers say that is also caused by the same factors as human global warming. Don't let them have it both ways. Either it's getting warmer, staying the same or getting cooler, and to try to blame that principally on man is ludicrous. This earth of ours can outpoint man any day because it is the creation of God, who is omnipotent. And the prime source of warmth and cold for that matter is the sun, another creation of God and its relationship with the seas which is, of course, also warmed and cooled by sun cycles. We really don't understand the relationship of the changing sea temperatures, yet the radicals always want to blame int on man. And while man has a miniscule contribution to change, a correlations is finally being recognized to changing sunspot energy bursts. For you see, when sunspot activity is high, it tends to get warmer; when it is low, like the current cycle which started seventeen years ago, it starts to cool.
I'll leave things at that. What will tomorrow bring? Well, we're going to find out but if it starts getting much colder like a mini-Ice Age, we may wish that some of those greenhouse gases, some of which we cause when we breathe, were around with more prevalence to hold in the sun's heat. So the science certainly isn't settled, scientific knowledge always advances, but we humans seem to always grab at convenient answers for political reasons. Keep the politics out of it and we'll be okay.
Have a great day in the sunshine and even if you are one of those worried to death about CO2 emissions, continue to keep breathing. Don't let your zeal kill you because if you believe as the climate alarmists that you are the culprit, your solution might just do that.
