Climate extremists are afraid to debate. Maybe they should be
For billions of human beings on the planet earth, the “Just Stop Oil” and “Just Stop Fossil Fuels” movements really do equate to: just stop life. No matter what the seemingly entitled, rich-kid protesters may pretend to believe, the reality is billions of people the world over depend upon fossil fuels for their very survival. Period.
Sadly – and quite dangerously – “climate change” has morphed from science to a religion for many on the left. Anyone questioning any aspect of the tenets of that newfound faith are branded heretics and excommunicated by the high priests of “green” energy.
With the onset of COVID-19, we continually heard that “the science is settled” with regard to the virus, lockdowns, masking, school closures and mandated vaccines. Anyone daring to ask seemingly commonsense questions was labeled “anti-science” or an “anti-vaxxer.” Even doctors in the field and parents simply worried about the welfare of their children.
Now, as “climate change” is being used as a catch-all explanation for a growing number of issues on earth, some on the left are calling scientists who question the “evidence” and computer models – remember them as the drivers of the panic over COVID – “climate dissidents,” “climate deniers” or worse.
Last month, as recently reported in Real Clear Investigations, more than 1,600 scientists, among them two Nobel physics laureates, Drs. John F. Clauser and Ivar Giaever of Norway, signed a declaration stating that there is no climate emergency, and that climate advocacy has devolved into mass hysteria.
The skeptics say the radical transformation of entire societies is marching forth without a full debate, based on dubious scientific claims amplified by knee-jerk journalism.
But for the high priests of Climate Change Religion, the education and real-world experience of these scientists seemingly does not matter. Much like the 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz,” many on the left are screaming: “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, pulling the levers that control the voice of the Great Oz. Listen only to the Great Oz.”
Today, the “Great Oz of Climate Change” does threaten to make life on earth dramatically worse for billions of people and no one is allowed to question his policies.
Why? What are the “green energy” zealots so afraid of? The truth?
No matter their refusal to debate, I still have a few questions for the Great Oz of Climate Change and his disciples:
There are more questions which can be asked of the high priests of climate change, but then, that is precisely the point. They don’t want those questions asked. They don’t want debate. They don’t want investigations.
They don’t care about your opinion.
They simply want to turn off the main source of power for the planet earth and ask you to trust them … or else.
