In their perpetuation of one of the largest frauds in history, the global warming/climate change crowd is attempting to destroy much of the technological achievement of the past 400 years. Not for themselves, mind you, but for all of the rest of us. The propaganda of the environmental extremists is a not-so-veiled attempt to destroy liberty.
The settlers of Jamestown in the New World of the early 1600's exhibited a shocking similarity to everyone who had peopled the earth for the five thousand years prior--they had achieved very little technological advancement. In his book, The 5,000 Year Leap, Cleon Skousen tells why
The whole panorama of Jamestown demonstrated how shockingly little progress had been made by all of those fifty centuries.Two centuries later, many of these rudiments had been replaced by implements far more technologically advanced. What caused this miracle? Liberty. Skousen says:
[They] had come in a boat no more commodious than those of the ancient sea kings. Their tools still consisted of shovel, axe, hoe, and a stick plow...only slightly improved over those of China, Egypt, Persia, and Greece. They harvested...with the same primitive scythes... Their transportation was by cart and oxen.

The spirit of freedom which moved out across the world in the 1800s was primarily inspired by the fruits of freedom in the United States. The climate of free-market economics allowed science to thrive in an explosion of inventions and technical discoveries that gave the world...harnessed electricity, the internal combustion engine, jet propulsion, exotic space vehicles, and all the wonders of nuclear energy.Freedom has in the past four centuries allowed individuals to become more and more enlightened than over 90% of earth's population ever thought possible and to contribute to their communities on a much more meaningful

Rather, their agenda has always been about the efficiency of top-down control--with them at the top.basis. Freedom has brought us to the point where miraculous inventions, such as computers, dishwashers, cell phones, and jet airplanes, are considered common. Now, based on the pseudo-scientific farce referred to alternately as "global warming" or "climate change", the self-proclaimed elite want to destroy all that.
Two hundred years ago, before so many helpful inventions improved our way of life, people died at much younger ages. Without electricity, they froze to death or died from dehydration or food poisoning. Without modern transportation, they died of disease borne by the sepsis of animal feces in the streets of their cities. Without other modern miracles, they died from drinking contaminated water, stepping on rusty nails, and suffering from heart abnormalities. Those are, ironically, essentially the same problems that still cut short the lives of many in the Third World today.
Man is not causing the globe to warm in any but the most minuscule of manners. If the global warming claims were true, it might be advisable to not only take from you the comforts of a modern-day existence, but also to ensure that citizens of the Third World never get a chance to enjoy them. Since the claims are demonstrably false, such notions of control are the height of aristocratic arrogance.
Man is not causing the globe to warm in any appreciable way. Some of those who claim that man is having such an effect on the atmosphere know that the claim is a crock. In order to successfully destroy your liberty to learn, to grow, and to contribute to your society, however, they perpetuate their false claims from behind the faux-priestly robes of "consensus".
I know a day of weather does not a climate make. But several days does. Last year I recall hardly once saying that "this is the most beautiful day I have ever seen". This year, I have said that at least twenty times already. Yes, our climate is a-changin'. It's been getting cooler. Perhaps that's why man-caused global warming aficionados don't refer to it much as "global warming" anymore.
The same free-market principles that gave us marvelous technological innovation can also provide the improvements we need to keep our environment clean. They can help us to eventually share the comforts of life with our brothers and sisters in the Third World. In fact, where government does not have a choke hold on the process, we're already accomplishing such improvements. However, climate change advocates are desperate for you not to notice this salient and simple fact.
Despite what you may have been taught in school, elite communists and socialists have never been equal with their commoner counterparts. The cream of the climate change communist crop will be no exception if we allow the scam to proceed that far. In every experiment in government control of the masses, an aristocracy of sorts has arisen, to whom has never applied the egregious and unnecessary rules foisted on the populace at large. Stated another way, if the climate change elite can require you to forgo your comforts of life, they will be left to consume and debauch the environment in a way never before imagined. In fact, they already do.
In a manner similar to the Malthusians of "population bomb" infamy, the leaders of the climate change movement have never had the earth's interest--or your interest, for that matter--at heart. Rather, their agenda has always been about the efficiency of top-down control--with them at the top.
If we give in to their charade, your liberty will be destroyed (but not theirs), and the 5,000 year leap of liberty will be over.
