What really causes global warming? by The Elephant's Child

England is having a bad time with their Green movement.  The Greens have worked for over 40 years to undermine the British economic system and to replace it with a Green autocracy that can control the British population.  Uninvestigated, it all sounded so — caring, and made a good topic of conversation for dinner parties.  When it meant just paying a little more for ‘organic’ veggies, or separating the trash into separate bins, it offered a small noble feeling of doing one’s part.

They, the Greens,  pretty much got away with it. At least until the economic crisis hit and people with calculators began looking at what things would actually cost.  An excellent example is recycling in the UK.  Most of this process has been driven by edicts from the EU — it is the moral thing to do, and you will recycle. But it seems that there is no demand, none whatsoever, for recycled waste.  The British paper, The Observer, reported that:

Huge waste mountains could be sited on military bases under emergency plans to protect Britain’s recycling revolution from the economic downturn.

Local authorities have requested government permission to site rubbish dumps on Ministry of Defense land in order to stockpile growing amounts of recyclable waste for which there is no use and no market.

The Observer is the quintessential right thinking newspaper. Recycling is good.  Therefore we must continue the recycling revolution no matter what the costs.  Can something be “recyclable” if it has no use, and if there is no market at all for it?

A second tactic is the eternal battle against an evil threat. Global warming has become the perpetual threat that demands every sacrifice — democracy, liberty, the destruction of free markets and the establishment of the “Ministry of Truth.” It will be staffed with an army of bureaucrats who will rewrite history, eliminating the Little Ice Age and the Medieval Warm Period, as well as circulating pictures of drowning polar bears and melting glaciers.

The third tactic is the adoption of Green bureaucratic language. Global warming becomes “climate change’.  “Sustainability” becomes the buzz-word of the day.  “Sustainable development” can be encouraged to build wind farms, to bolster the quest for funds, or to pass undesirable laws.  It can also be used to prevent development, block growth and to conjure up a return to an imagined, usually rural, Utopia.

Greens come in many guises, and range from the caring but ill-informed to the totally loony.  Their prescriptions need to be based in observed science and real economics. That shouldn’t be asking too much.

You are being fed a parcel of lies.  Pay attention, read up, and investigate further. Don’t just swallow.

I’ve often wondered what made my two teenage daughters so surly. Now I know. Of course it’s global warming.
