"[S]ince 1998, average global temperatures have risen by a mere few hundredths of a degree. (For a time, they even declined slightly.) Yet all we hear is baseless rhetoric about manmade carbon dioxide causing global warming and climate changes that pose existential threats to humanity, wildlife[,] and planet."

"[C]omputer model predictions for 2019 are almost a half degree Celsius (0.9 degrees F) above actual satellite measurements."

    "Dr. Mann released a computer-generated graph purporting to show global temperatures over the previous 1500 years. His graph mysteriously made the Medieval Warm Period, Little Ice Age and Maunder extreme cold years disappear – and planetary temperatures spike suddenly the last couple decades of twentieth century."

    Yeah, we know about it, discussed it the other day. Mann is a corrupt politician, not a scientist. He is arrogant and ruthlessly bulldozing those who disagree with him. As a scientist he has nothing to offer, but as a "climate researcher" in Al Gore's taste, he has been granted millions of research funds.

    "All sorts of interest groups are suppressing this information. Maybe worse, when Climategate broke, “climate justice” campaigner for Friends of the Earth Emma Brindal said bluntly: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.” Not protecting Earth from manmade CO2 emissions or natural and manmade climate change – but redistributing wealth and resources, according to formulas that self-appointed ruling elites decide is “socially just.”

    "Climate campaigners also oppose “excessive” air travel for business or pleasure, 4×4 vehicles as “unnecessary luxuries,” and modern homes for Africans. Some even say Africans must continue living in mud huts and avoid the use of electricity and modern farming technologies. Minor US actor Ed Begley has said “Africans should have solar power where they need it most: on their huts.” They, Al Gore, Phil Jones and Mike Mann are exempted from these restrictions, of course."

    Sure. They are crisscrossing the globe in the private jets, booking lavish "meetings" at exclusive resorts consuming orders of magnitude more power than ordinary citizens.

      Whether it is feminism, environmentalism, income inequality, or anything else, the most popular solution proffered is always the same: socialism.

      It is a shame that more do not appreciate the destructiveness of leftists' unfiltered, industrial-grade envy. They don't want your stuff; they want you not to have your stuff, and they don't care how many Africans have to suffer and die in the process.

        The left's "agenda" is not made clear to the masses who support it.

        Ask a foaming-mouth "protester" in the rally against "man-made climate change", or any of the left-supported "causes", if they want African stay in conditions as they are, if this is really what they are after?

        Thinking of it, they'd probably say yes, following the directive. Similar to die-hard communists who are still convinced that the 10s of millions of deaths by Stalin was worth it. But I have never seen them articulate what was worth it? What is the prize the lost lives were supposed to bring? A Venezuela?
