When I was growing up, I remember hearing we were heading back to global cooling — an “ice age” — which most folks in the midwest and northeast may agree with right now.
It seems just yesterday we were being warned about global warming. But when empirical evidence didn’t support that theory, the poll-tested marketing lexicon of the progressive socialists was changed to “climate change” – on which I must agree, per winter, spring, summer, and fall. Ok, I’ll stop being facetious but then again, based on the absolutely stupid statement by US Secretary of State this past weekend in Jakarta, Indonesia, you’ll forgive my sudden onset of wittiness.
As reported by The Blaze, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called climate change perhaps the world’s “most fearsome” destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat.
In a sense, climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” Kerry told Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials.
Excuse me? I’ve had three trips into combat zones, so I kind of know a little thing about threats and danger. No amount of “flat earth society” accusations will persuade me to join the liberal progressive scheme to make America succumb to international economic standards that will severely degrade our struggling economy.
Nor will I ever believe this is our greatest threat, at least not as long as Iran keeps being Iran. I can just see it now — our US national military strategy will have as its primary objective combating climate change.President Obama referred to climate change as a fact during his State of the Union address. Obama and Kerry could both use a career change to go with the climate change.
“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Kerry told the audience at a U.S. Embassy-run American Center in a shopping mall. A shopping mall?In typical liberal alarmist fashion Kerry stated, “This city, this country, this region, is really on the front lines of climate change. It’s not an exaggeration to say that your entire way of life here is at risk.” Really? I thought it was the zombie apocalypse, Mr. Secretary.
The bottom line is, light bulbs and toilet tanks aside, most of us are smart enough to see through this bovine excrement. Liberals were unsuccessful in punishing our country with cap and trade, which was just a ploy to control another aspect of our economy, the energy sector. Now the goal is to try and scare us all to death about the weather. Can’t actually say the words “Islamic jihad” but they’re all over climate change.
Ain’t buying it, and the energy sector will figure out emissions control without having the federal and/or world government dictate how we must live.
