Few issues prove Hillary’s comment more than climate change. Climate “science” is a computer model based, it doesn’t rely upon empirical evidence and experimentation. The “leaders” is the field of climate “science” literally “adjust” the data to make the laughable climate models produce the desired results. No real scientist takes the claims from the climate “science” departments seriously. Climate “science” started with a conclusion that man-made CO2 causes global warming and they set out to find anecdotal evidence to support that claim. The results have been disastrous to any thinking person seeking the truth, with “evidence” being produced that require physical impossibilities like ice melting in sub-zero temperatures. The support for climate change legislation requires that supporters either care about the truth but are too lazy to check the facts or are gullible enough to unquestioningly believe the climate “scientists/activists,” or don’t care about the facts and just want to be part of the Democratic Party’s issue Du Jour. These are the misguided social justice warriors that want to save the earth by destroying free-market capitalism.
To prove this point, one needs to look no further than the “paper of record,” the “first rough draft of history,” the notoriously liberal New York Times (NYT). The NYT and their apparently scientifically illiterate Ivy League educated journalism majors are running a series titled “A primer on climate change: ‘Short Answers to Hard Questions About Climate Change‘” to “educate” their liberal subscribers on the topic of the unsupportable “science” of climate change. The results are laughable, and their efforts to defend the “science” of climate change crumble under the most casual of analysis. The results of a critical analysis can be found by clicking here. Clearly, the focus on the NYT isn’t to get to the truth, it is to promote the false narrative/fake news/junk science/pseudo science of man-made climate change. Note the use of Fahrenheit, not the scientific standard Celcius, by the scientifically “sophisticated” NYT.
1. How much is the planet heating up?
1.7 degrees is actually a significant amount.
As of October 2015, the Earth had warmed by about 1.7 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880, when records begin at a global scale. That figure includes the surface of the ocean. The warming is greater over land, and greater still in the Arctic and parts of Antarctica.
Richard Muller’s Berkeley group (BEST) has pushed the starting point back to 1800. What that shows is a similar rise in temperature (land only) of about 0.5 degrees C (0.9 degrees F) from 1800-1880. Isn’t that interesting? Long before the rise of CO2, we have the earth emerging from the depths of the Little Ice Age, temperatures rising for more than 200 years now. http://www.woodfortrees.org/plot/best/from:1850/to:1880/trend/plot/best/from:1800/to:1850/trend
The distortions don’t end with the NYT, they go all the way to the top. President Obama repeatedly makes unsupportable claims. You will never see the NYT refute ex-President Obama’s claims, no matter how erroneous. The godfather of climate change, Al Gore, can make statements like the earth’s core and crust is “extremely hot, several million degrees“, and no one in the liberal media bats an eye. the To get to the truth one must search the internet to see Dr. Judith Curry or Dr. John Christy address the facts. The claims the climate “scientists” and their sycophants make are so easy to refute and so far removed from the truth and supporting facts, it is obvious that this isn’t a scientific issue, it is a political movement masquerading as a “science.” No amount of facts will ever convince the NYT and liberals from accepting the truth, the truth simply doesn’t matter to them. Climate change is a means to an end, and that end is to undermine capitalism, redistribute wealth and fund the crony capitalism based “green” economy. Climate change is an anti-capitalist/Marxist/watermelon environmentalist’s wet dream.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution…This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
Even leaders of capitalist nations have joined the suicidal campaign.
The weird thing is that Klein and the prime minister, Tony Abbott, are in complete agreement on one fundamental thing: both believe that seriously tackling climate change is incompatible with capitalism as we know it.
If one doubts the political importance of climate change to the Democrats, one simply needs to read the Wikileaks.
“Climate change” comes up in more than 1,200 of the emails released as of Friday, or more than Obamacare and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant combined…
Taxing carbon polls horribly, … Natural gas has spurred jobs and exports, … The federal ethanol mandate is arguably failing to deliver its promised gains… but calling for reform too loudly risks losing support in corn country.
And Clinton’s team think it’s deeply unrealistic to call for a quick end to oil drilling, as some green groups and Sanders supporters demand
Several threads in the emails also detail the choreography Clinton’s aides engaged in before she revealed her long-planned public opposition to the Keystone XL oil pipeline last year.
The problem conservatives have arguing this issue is that we are conservatives. We look at the facts. We look for the truth. When the NYT or ex-President Obama makes a series to erroneous statements, we respond with rebuttals. The NYT and ex-President Obama reaches millions with their nonsense, conservatives reach very few with their rebuttals. Liberals are propagandists, conservatives are seeking the truth. Conservatives are only winning this battle because 50% of America leans right and their views are influenced by politics, not science.
Liberal Democrats Overwhelmingly Say Solid Evidence Global Warming Is Occurring; Most Conservative Republicans Say There Is Not
For conservatives to really put this issue to bed, they need to accept the hard truth that climate “science” isn’t science at all, it is a giant ruse used to promote an anti-capitalism agenda. Facts aren’t what is important to the supporters of climate change, the benefits promised them by politicians is what is important. The benefits of “believing” in climate change are measured in the hundreds of trillions of dollars, the benefit of seeking the honest truth is a huge pay cut and drop in their standard of living.
When liberals want to generate support for the “science” behind climate change and the wealth distributing legislation that it supports, they don’t call for public debates to make the argument, they rely on monologs by the President, the press, and photo-ops of people that dress up in animal suits. Telling the people the “facts” and appealing to emotions and authority is their unscientific political MO. Trying to have a responsible adult conversation with these people is futile, they are clearly responding to parts of the brain unknown to conservatives.
Conservatives need to learn to speak the language of liberals. Liberals don’t speak math. Liberals end up taking journalism, history, education, literature, art because they fail out of the math and engineering courses. You don’t find many people that dress up as polar bears and dance in the streets promoting nonsense working at conservative firms, you find them working in art galleries, liberal universities, liberal newspapers and/or teaching at a public elementary school. To reach liberals conservatives need to speak their language, conservative need to dumb down the communication and arguments, conservatives need to copy Hillary Clinton and simply adjust/dumb down the message for the audience.
To reach liberals conservatives need to speak their language, conservative need to dumb down the communication and arguments, conservatives need to copy Hillary Clinton and simply adjust/dumb down the message for the audience. Liberals love funding for public schools, climate change takes money from the public schools, Liberals love PBS, NPR and the NEA, climate change takes money from them, Liberals love “saving the earth,” yet green solutions are destroying the earth. Climate money could have been used to maintain the Oroville Dam. There are countless better causes liberals can spend the trillions of dollars currently being wasted on the Quixotic war on climate change. Conservative, while debating the science is needed, we also need to start recruiting support for the political left. To do that conservatives need to start crafting emotional arguments as well as scientific ones. The science arguments have already been won, that is why the political left and NYT publishes such superficial and laughable garbage. That is why ex-President Obama can’t list any real events caused by man-made CO2. If he and the NYT had the data and evidence, they would release it, and that evidence and data would withstand scrutiny, and wouldn’t need to be “adjusted” after the fact to make the models work.

Ridicule is also an approach taught by Saul Alynski, and may be a useful tool. Here is the approach outlined in the IBD commentary “Five Reasons Why Ridicule Is The Proper Response To Global Warming Alarmists.”
Of course the alarmists can’t give up their shrillness. They’re still bullies who try to marginalize, shame and silence those who don’t agree with their narrative that man is dangerously overheating the planet through his greenhouse gas emissions.
But they’re the ones who should be mocked. Here’s why:
They’ve hidden their true agenda.
BTW, the MO of the Climate Alarmists is to deny, deflect, deceive, distort, and attack. One favorite tactic is to “appeal to authority,” who are often the “Fact Checkers.” These favorite attack dogs are a tainted jury at best.
