Warmists think we're stupid
One of the key attributes of the global warming movement, like any cult, is that it posits a doomsday scenario if we don't follow their dangerous prescriptions. Whether it is cyanide-laced Kool Aid or the economic equivalent (were we to follow the cap-and-trade crowd) the “cure” is not only worse than the so-called problem, but is also premised on the idea that people are stupid.
The warmists say that we'll have more disease and death if the planet warms even though studies by actual scientists frequently conclude otherwise.
This week’s five-alarm fire (literally) comes from the NY Times which warns us that “Across millions of acres, the pines of the northern and central Rockies are dying, just one among many types of forests that are showing signs of distress these days.” The article, which implies that the earth will die if we don’t stop climate change from killing trees, is at least honest enough to use “if” six times, “might” three times, “may” seven times, and other qualifiers of their doomsday view such as “not sure”, “possible”, and “could.”
