Mark this day in your calendars. A new religion has been formally consecrated with an Oval Office ball-spiking by the President, “this historic agreement is a tribute to American leadership,”. The best part, for all the West’s socialist leaders who signed on to this sanctification, is that the agreement will not require approval from America’s Senate. The religion’s high priests (politicians and bureaucrats) are now consuming every loose bottle of Champagne in Paris, washing down mountains of Almas or Petrossian caviar in celebration.
In self-righteousness, the 40,000 proselytizers who convened their Paris assembly, will soon disperse to preach to their new parishioners, flying conformably aloft in full hypocrisy aboard private or chartered jets.
On their return home the most senior of the priests will land on their own egos, squirming for approval from the fawning media, outdoing one another as to the imposition of vacuous ideas to be proclaimed to the faithful. From Hollande, to Gore, to Obama, they will be contenders battling for the new religion’s most sacred office, its ‘seigneurie’, or ‘overlordship’, or whatever title the self-appointed cardinals decide to assign on their elected leader. Once upon a time, like 7 years ago, Obama probably considered himself a shoe-in for the post. These past 7 years, however, have unraveled, frayed and darkened his corona.
Still, Obama is campaigning hard with brilliance such as this, on the heals of an Islamic terrorist slaughter on his watch, “Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security”. He is accusing Americans who deny, or question ‘climate change’ as being threats to America. If you question the dogma that carbon dioxide produced by your consumption is accelerating the Earth’s temperatures toward levels calamitous for the human race, you are to be condemned. Common sense has become anathema to the Climate Change religion.
We can now expect an increase in the inquisition that will degrade, accuse and charge ‘climate change’ sectarians. In silence, we will witness an attempt at eradicating heretics from society. The term ‘skeptic’ and the term ‘denier’ will become triggers which will ostracize from society anyone so accused. Already we have seen universities demanding that Obama use RICO laws to prosecute ‘skeptics’. It may sound insane, but then our universities have long been vacated by common sense and freedom of speech.
The hysterical dictum, “Global Warming”, was briskly converted to “Climate Change” in the past year. The architects of the new religious order succumbed to the reality that the axiom at the foundation of their doctrine was false. “Change” was so much easier to sell.
Everything in the Universe changes. Everything in the Universe evolves through cycles. The Earth’s orbit around the Sun, for example, cycles through various oblong patterns impacted by fluctuations in the gravitational pull of Saturn and Jupiter. The residual affect on the Earth’s tilt affects its Northern and Southern temperatures.
Some affects are slow to develop, others less so. The Sun has its cycles and is shortly entering what is known as the Maunder minimum. Predictions suggest that ‘solar activity’ will begin to drop by 60% in about 15 years, delivering a mini ice age that will impact many of Earth’s inhabitants. Complexities of our solar system, or our Earth’s climate do not enter into the considerations of this religious movement.
Claims that the activity of 7.2 billion humans is creating CO2 which causes climate change, are assertions intended to strike fear and stimulate exuberance, and faith in the new religion. Extremist language is not intended to educate the global population into being more conscious of its impact on nature, or becoming less wasteful. Radical and hateful language is intended to provide zealots with droning phrases to used as gospel, spreading the word — convincing the converted that they should PAY and anyone who disagrees must be denigrated for heresy.
Rags like Huffington Post do their best for the new order by accusing anyone who disagrees, of being angry white men who are lying to themselves. In this age of Obama, it has become ‘de rigueur’ to accuse anyone who dares disagree with the left’s dogma, of being racist, or angry white men, or xenophobic. What they seem to not realize, is that in their zeal to join their new religion, they are playing into the plans of senior bankers — the very same guys who financed the political ambitions of the current President.
The “Climate Change” religion will siphon trillions of dollars from American taxpayers and those of ‘developed’ nations. That will be YOUR penalty for having created a stable society with a capitalist system. It matters little that America has made enormous progress in cleaning up its air, which is now cleaner than it has been in a century, while its population and economy have mushroomed. It matters little that CO2 is not a pollutant.
The new cult will NOT create jobs for the 95 million Americans unemployed. It will, however, impose additional taxes on those who earn a wage or consume anything. Every product that consumes energy in its manufacture will enjoy a surtax. The more obvious will be a carbon tax like that which has already been levied on some Canadians. Ask them how much that has impacted their use of vehicles. Ask them how much cash that has taken from their monthly net income. Ask them if that tax burden is having any impact on the hundreds of millions of tons of debris and plastic floating in the Pacific ocean.
The winners will be the amorphous bankers who will control the trading of ‘carbon credits’, generating hundreds of billions in fees no nation will have any oversight on.
The winners will be the cronies of the political class who will receive multi-billion dollar taxpayer funded contracts to chase whatever ‘green’ technology-of-the-day might please the religion’s leaders.
The winners will be the dictators who produce nothing while they suppress and oppress their populations, but will become benefactors of the largest wealth redistribution in history.
The winners will be the malfunctioning nations which have mismanaged their societies, their cultures and their economies.
The winners will be those lining up to position themselves in the lead of the new world order.
The losers will be all those who will lose their employment as a bloated bureaucracy will dictate what satisfies the religion, and what doesn’t. The Cap-and-Trade monster will become the biggest drag on progress and the economy that America has ever experienced. America is suffering serious degradation in its standard of living, and its middle class is struggling. The damage that this Administration has inflicted on it with ruinous acts like Obamacare will see further disregard for its well-being by its leaders.
I am not a fan of the oil industry’s senior executives, however, I am very familiar with the technologies which are attempting to transplant our reliance on oil and gas. We are making rapid progress in reducing air pollution, but the ‘green’ technologies still remain a long distance from being viable. A new religion isn’t going to reduce our reliance on oil, but it will divert our cash and attention away from real solutions.
