Anybody even vaguely aware of what’s going on in American politics right now would realize that global warming is a hot button topic. Quite honestly, I didn’t understand why this was for the longest time.
Sure, the concept of global warming is mostly propelled by liberals with bad facts and data, but why does it matter so much in the grand scheme of things? I wrestled back and forth, trying to understand why this was viewed as so important.
Finally, it dawned on me.
If you think big government sucks, you need to fight back against the false concept of global warming because the ‘fight to end global warming’ is directly linked to big government.
It’s a logical train of thought. If global warming is true, and is caused by the actions of people, clearly, government will start to try and end this issue (as it already has started to do). If that’s the case, we will suddenly find ourselves in the midst of restrictive regulations and sanctions.
Global warming is a myth.
Some key points that back this are that scientists were concerned about global cooling just a few decades ago (1970s) which is a short period of time for climate change, there is no consensus among scientists as to whether the earth is actually getting warmer or not, and there have been many cooked books, corrupt funding, and skewed releases of data in an attempt to support the left’s waning argument (also known as Climategate).
Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro, made a good point when he wrote that honestly, there has not really been a lot of global warming in the past few years:
For example, The Economist reported in 2014, “Between 1998 and 2013, the Earth’s surface temperature rose at a rate of 0.04°C a decade, far slower than the 0.18°C increase in the 1990s.” That forced the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to come up with a whole new way of evaluating its data to fight those results.
It also forced global warming advocates to claim that the oceans somehow ate up all of the excess heat in the air. All of that led President Obama to claim to the world in Paris that 14 of the past 15 years have been the hottest on record. But when scientists said that 2014 was the hottest year on record, they admitted they were only 38% sure that was the case.
The facts backing the global warming argument are weak. Yet, under Obama’s administration, dangerous steps were taken to attempt to regulate the country in order to defeat a fake enemy. For example, under President Obama the United States entered into the Paris Agreement.
Dangerous steps were taken to attempt to regulate the country in order to defeat a fake enemy.
The Paris Agreement, labeled as the most ambitious climate change agreement yet, holds all nations involved to standards that will help meet their targeted anti-global warming goals.
The problem comes when you realize that not only will these targets seriously inhibit our economy, but they’re also being dictated by an international entity, not the representatives of the people of the United States. This is just one example of Obama’s attempts to perpetuate the global warming myth, and will hopefully be struck down by President Trump. Yet, it introduces a dangerous path, one that we will continue following if we don’t realize we’re on it.
At stake is the freedom of the people and the growth of our economy.
Yes, the majority of the country is Republican right now. It won’t always be that way though, and so for right now, we must keep exposing global warming for the myth it is. It may not seem like an important topic, but at stake is the freedom of the people and the growth of our economy.
Do your best to care for the planet as a good steward; reduce, reuse, recycle, and whatever else you can think of. But when the time comes that people want to restrict freedom to stop an enemy that doesn’t exist under the guise of caring for the planet, stand up and fight against it.
