“Can they really have it both ways?”
Listen to these two following statements and see if you become as perplexed as I did. “Record snowfalls in Alaska have doubled since the start of the industrial age, evidence that climate change can trigger major increases in regional precipitation”. Now consider this one “Climate change in New England, Dartmouth researchers indicate that warmer and shorter winters are resulting in far less snowfall on average, pointing to the severe impact of climate change. Can climate change really do both and if so how could we ever tell what is “normal” weather?
Even more complexing is the fact that the two supposed instances of research each claiming an opposite result caused by climate change came from the same prestigious university only a few months apart. The real question becomes why would any institution jeopardize its credibility with such contrasting views on an incredibly controversial subject.
The only answer I can seem to find that makes any sense is to follow the money. Currently the global climate change industry is worth an annual $1.5 trillion. That’s the equivalent of $4 billion a day spent on utterly pointless things such as carbon trading, carbon sequestration, and renewable energy mandates. I’m not throwing renewable energy under the proverbial bus, but wouldn’t it make more sense for them to become a part of our energy mix through natural market conditions, innovative technology, and genuine consumer demand rather than from mandated taxpayer subsidies. Even more unpalatable is that these efforts are based on extremely flawed consensus science centered on the type of research I described above.
Currently we have a gun to our head regarding our participation in funding the great climate hoax. These costs are already priced into our taxes, energy, and almost every product we buy or service we use. Entire new concentrations of study have materialized in recent years to essentially feed off the carcass of global climate change and the race to find the cure. These are the people who give expert testimony to the equally unknowing who develop these terrible policies.
Fortunately, we are seeing a change in political ideology. Although the wheels were already in motion, the Trump administration is beginning to apply the brakes. The United States has already withdrawn from the notorious wealth redistribution efforts of the Paris Climate Accord and just recently Trump promised to cancel all wasteful climate change spending from the Obama years, including global warming payments to the United Nation which will save $100Billion over the next 8 years. I hope we continue to move in this direction. We can ill afford not to.
