This is a scientific blog. I pondered before adding the following article about so-called Green Movement dummies and in disrepute Global Warming freaks. I don’t believe in it’s principles – don’t think many do anymore, even the progressives who created this lie, and many more.
As a preface to what the article below says, I must admit that I am a strong, tithe-paying Mormon. Proud of it. Here’s a story that will “frost” the cockles of all progressives because they don’t believe in God. Before the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leader Brigham Young brought his people to the valleys of the Great Salt Lake, which later became the state of Utah, he got some bum advice from a noted trapper frontiersman, Jim Bridger. Bridger told him not to go to that salty-barren land by the huge salt sea, it wouldn’t produce crops and was too cold in the winter and summers were too short to harvest a crop.
Brigham Young, of course, didn’t listen to him, he listened to the master scientist, even our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God of the universe. God told both Joseph Smith, Young’s predecessor, and Brigham to bring his beleaguered people to where Salt Lake City is today – a thriving metropolis. He further promised Young that it would be possible to plant crops and harvest them there. In fact, he said he would moderate the temperature (our first example of Climate manipulation and change in America). But since the promise was made by the very God who created the earth, obviously Brigham Young believed the revelation and the rest is history.
So I say to the Green activists and the Climate Change pigs who make money telling lies, stop and listen. Listen to what God is telling us. Become real again. Stop your lies. Get back to God. He is the only one who can save this nation. We were a God-fearing people in the beginning and in the middle, but where have we gone astray?
I’ll tell you. We’ve allowed a minority to guide us around by the nose. Atheists in America are a minority. We who believe in God and who actively worship and serve God are the majority in America. But it’s high time we stood up and were counted. Its time to declare to the world – especially to those progressives in Washington – that you can’t lie to us anymore. You can’t push us around. We’re onto you.

In classical Athens, public life became dominated by clever and smart-sounding sophists. These mellifluous “really wise guys” made money and gained influence by their rhetorical boasts to “prove” the most amazing “thinkery” that belied common sense.
We are living in a new age of sophism — but without a modern equivalent of Socrates to remind the public just how silly our highly credentialed and privileged new rhetoricians can often sound.
Take California, which is struggling with a near-record wet and snowy winter. Flooding spreads in the lowlands; snow piles up in the Sierras.
In February 2009, Nobel Laureate and Energy Secretary Steven Chu pontificated without evidence that California farms would dry up and blow away, inasmuch as 90 percent of the annual Sierra snowpack would disappear. Yet long-term studies of the central Sierra snowpack show average snow levels unchanged over the last 90 years. Many California farms are drying up — but from government’s, not nature’s, irrigation cutoffs.
England is freezing and snowy. But that’s odd, since global warming experts assured that the end of English snow was on the horizon. Australia is now flooding — despite predictions that its impending new droughts meant it could not sustain its present population. The New York Times just published an op-ed assuring the public that the current record cold and snow are proof of global warming. In theory, they could be, but one wonders: what, then, would record winter heat and drought prove?
In response to these unexpected symptoms of blizzards and deluges, climate physicians offer changing diagnoses. “Global change” has superseded “global warming.” After these radically cold winters, the next replacement appears to be “climate chaos.” Yet if next December is neither too hot nor too cold, expect to hear about the doldrum dangers of “climate calm.”
In 2009, brilliant economists in the Obama administration — Peter Orszag, Larry Summers and Christina Romer — assured us that record trillion-plus budget defects were critical to prevent stalled growth and 10 percent unemployment. For nearly two years we have experienced both, but now with an addition $3 trillion in national debt. All three have quietly either returned to academia or Wall Street.
There is also a new generation of young, sophistic bloggers who offer their wisdom from the New York-Washington corridor. They are usually graduates of America’s elite colleges and navigate in an upscale urban landscape. One, the Washington Post‘s 26-year-old Ezra Klein, recently scoffed to his readers that a bothersome U.S. Constitution was “100 years old” and had “no binding power on anything.”
