The End of the World

by Daniel Greenfield on Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

This is article 248 of 337 in the topic Global Warming

Two years ago, the media had a prolonged belly laugh at a group that predicted the end of the world. Now media outlets from The New York Times to The New Republic to The Economist are wrestling with the question of why their own ideology’s doomsday predictions are not coming to pass.

“If scientific models can’t project the last 15 years, what does that mean for their projections of the next 100?,” the New Republic asks. It means that the world isn’t going to end.

Even as Obama exploits Global Warming to launch a War on Affordable Energy, the doomsday environmentalists look as foolish as any other group that set a date for the end of the world, only for the world to stubbornly go on existing.

True believers in Gore would say that’s the difference between science and eschatology. But when bogus science warns us of an apocalypse if we don’t follow the tenets of their ideology, then how much difference is there anyway?

Of course no one expects MSNBC to do sneering reports of global warming activists freezing at a protest or Al Gore being forced to watch a count down of a solidly frozen North Pole. Such mockery is only directed at people who believe in more unpopular forms of apocalypses. At least unpopular at the broadcasting studios of Manhattan.

It’s fashionable to mock religious leaders for hypocrisy, but there isn’t a peep when the Vice President turned Prophet of Gaia lectures on watching our carbon footprint and then flies on jet fueled carbon wings to another concert on behalf of the planet.

Other aspiring prophets like Prince Charles, who admires poverty, but lives in privilege, are no better. Or Obama who told Americans that they couldn’t heat their homes as they pleased, while keeping his thermostat up to Hawaiian standards.

If the invariably prosperous believers in Death by Global Warming really believed in the creed, wouldn’t they be selling their homes and cars, and going off to live a simpler life in the Himalayan mountains. But it’s easier to believe in something than to practice it.

Like all liberal social engineering projects, environmentalism is meant to change everyone’s life. And there’s no point in its proponents doing more than paying lip service to it, as they make it the law of the land. If Osama bin Laden could preach Islamic morality while stocking up on X rated tapes, surely Al Gore can foretell the doom of the North Pole and still take a private jet around the world.

If liberals have turned to doomsday predictions, it’s because they have discovered that religion and the apocalypse can be a marvelously effective way of controlling human behavior. But their religion is materialistic, concerned with the human presence in the natural world. Even its materialism is consumeristic.

The Reds had no truck with environmentalism. To a Communist, the natural world was a mass of raw resources to be used to build socialism. But to the children of the capitalists, concerned more with what they buy, than with what they do, environmentalism restraints and directs their buying habits. As religions goes, environmentalism is the Consumer Reports of theologies.

For all the talk of apocalypse and melting poles, the environmentalists really only care about your economic activity.

The Yokes On You

by Larry Wilke on Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

This is article 165 of 392 in the topic economy

The socialist’s stand up comedian was in North Carolina yesterday, clucking and giggling about the conditions that he and his collectivist caliphate have created. Obama and another of his well compensated “Councils”, this one the “Council on Jobs and Competitiveness”, not to be confused with all of the illegal Obama “Czars”, had quite a Bolshevik belly laugh over their intentional destruction of America..

According to Fox News, (“Obama Jokes at Jobs Council: ‘Shovel Ready was Not as Shovel Ready as we Expected’” 0614/2011) Obama was advised that the delays relative to all of the imaginary jobs from the Scamulous could take “months to years.. and in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned.. I’m sure when you implemented the Recovery Act your staff briefed you on may of these challenges..” The jocular Obama interjected with, “Shovel-ready was not as..uh..shovel-ready as we expected..” At this moment, “the Council, led by GE’s Jeffrey Immelt, erupted in laughter..” Just a few points, if I may..

The fact that Scamulous projects needed to be “abandoned” was and is irrelevant to Obama and the rest of the liberal administration. They were and are consumed during this time to making sure that “Scamulous” monies went and goes to imaginary “congressional districts”.. Money “allegedly” went to Arizona, Oklahoma, Iowa, Connecticut, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and even the Northern Mariana Islands for “jobs saved or created” and to congressional districts that didn’t and don’t exist.. No one knows where these millions or billions went or are going.. My guess would be that since Biden was “in charge” of the Scamulous, these lost tax dollars went to his ever burgeoning liquor cabinet..

Obama was also there to announce “a new program that would train 10,000 new American engineers every year..” “We’ve got to make sure all our companies have a steady stream of skilled workers to draw from..” If these new “engineers” are being groomed within the liberal cesspool of the public schools, you won’t even be able to find the stock to make even 10 engineers, let alone 10,000.. As well, “skills” aren’t applicable to the “fairness” standards that the liberal government imposes upon employers. “Skills” denote “ability” and focusing on “ability” might cause some type of “discrimination”.. Write this “program” off as so many of the other pie in the sky socialist bleating that Obama specializes in..

USA Today said that Obama “cracked wise”.. The “let them eat cake” attitude of the limousine left has been perfected through their sarcastic “concern” for those that they have manacled to the lowest classes for generations. Since the collectivist coronation in 2009, they have deviously moved towards adopting this shameful attitude in relation to the middle class which will complete their decimation of the “proletarians” as prescribed by their political potentate Lenin, in order to properly install socialism.. (The liberals themselves represent Lenin’s “bourgeoisie” in Lenin’s “April Thesis”..) After all, the liberals smirking and clowning on the dais with Obama all have “jobs”, the rest of America be damned..

Next Obama moved to a disingenuous photo-op at a company known as Cree Incorporated, a producer of “energy efficient” (of course..) LED lighting.

End of the World

by Daniel Greenfield on Monday, May 23rd, 2011

This is article 7 of 13 in the topic Doomsday Theories

The media has been having a prolonged belly laugh at a group that had the temerity to suggest that the world would end today. Of course it’s ridiculous when Harold Camping predicted that the world will be over today, but not when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would melt in five years. True believers in Gore would say that’s the difference between science and eschatology. But when bogus science warns us of an apocalypse if we don’t follow the tenets of their ideology, then how much difference is there anyway?

Of course no one expects MSNBC to do sneering reports of global warming activists freezing at a protest or Al Gore being forced to watch a count down of a solidly frozen North Pole. Such mockery is only directed at people who believe in more unpopular forms of apocalypses. At least unpopular at the broadcasting studios of Manhattan. Camping is ridiculous, but Al Gore is right on the money.

The only real difference between Harold Camping and Al Gore, is that Harold Camping believes what he’s saying, while Al Gore preaches one thing to his followers, but lives a lifestyle in direct contraction of it. The Vice President turned Prophet of Gaia lectures on watching our carbon footprint and then flies on jet fueled carbon wings to another concert on behalf of the planet. Other aspiring prophets like Prince Charles, who admires poverty, but lives in privilege, are no better.

Of course prophets are immune from hypocrisy. Doubly so if they’re false prophets. If the invariably prosperous believers in Death by Global Warming really believed in the creed, wouldn’t they be selling their homes and cars, and going off to live a simpler life in the Himalayan mountains. But it’s easier to believe in something than to practice it. Like all liberal social engineering projects, environmentalism is meant to change everyone’s life. And there’s no point in its proponents doing more than paying lip service to it, as they make it the law of the land. If Osama bin Laden could preach Islamic morality while stocking up on X rated tapes, surely Al Gore can foretell the doom of the North Pole and still take a private jet around the world.

For all the talk of apocalypse and melting poles, the environmentalists really only care about what your economic activity. Buy or don’t buy.
