A Smattering of Knowledge Derived From Talking Points by The Elephant's Child

If you actually take the time to read what Secretary of State John Kerry says in a  speech about the climate, or actually listen to him, you can tell that he has never read a world about the science of Climate Change. His entire background is derived directly from Democrat talking-points.

If you accept that as a given, then you start to wonder about other speakers and what they have to say. It’s a really scary exercise.

Kerry Pumps Up Arctic Climate Agenda

The Arctic is a “critical part of the global climate system,” Kerry said. “The numbers are alarming,” the region is “warming faster than any region on Earth,” he said. Arctic sea ice is receding, which is creating an expansion of shipping and trade through the region along with opportunities to develop natural resources and energy. Kerry said the changes are also threatening the people who live in the region. More

Kerry’s always been like that. Give him a couple bullet points, and a 4 or 5 sentence summation on any given subject, and he’ll consider himself an expert (I know this from personal experience dealing with him). Not that Kerry is alone in this. A lot of politicians do this when giving speeches. It just that they don’t try to pass them selves off as experts in the field on the basis of it.

I always wonder how pervasive it is among the Progressives. Of course there are always the numbers of people in both parties who just cannot admit that they don’t know anything about the subject, (they heard Martin Luther King’s speech last week, for example) which is just an attempt to avoid seeming stupid. But there is a common lack of knowledge about matters economic or climate particularly combined with an angry I do too know about this. There’s a weird sense of non-recognition of mastery of a subject with a defiant ‘I know as much as they do.’ It’s odd, and a damaging response.
