Obama’s Unshakeable Faith In Mythology
The president’s faith in the fantasy of man-made global warming would be charming were it not so savagely destructive.
That faith drives Obama to destroy the coal mining industry, throwing thousands of people out of work, while championing “green” energy that is far less efficient and vastly more expensive than petroleum and natural gas. To the extent that Obama’s power-grab pretensions become realized, individuals’ heating and lighting bills will increase substantially, and businesses will have to raise prices to cover increased energy costs.
After 17 years years without global warming, despite endless predictions of doom, one has to wonder whether something other an interest in science is driving the president.
A major motive, revealed by the “climate gate” scandal, is perpetrators’ aspiration to become gods, presuming the power to control the earth’s climate by gaining dictatorial regulatory control over earth’s inhabitants. No less compelling for the president’s “scientific” cohort is the immense flow of taxpayers’ money with which they enrich themselves.
Fortunately, increasing numbers of real scientists are recognizing that the Emperor Obama is wearing no clothes and that the UN’s IPCC reports are nothing more than campaign speeches for personal glory and political power. See here, here, here, here, here, and here.
