The collusion of the climate crowd

Let me share with you a blinding insight: in the summer, every summer, it will be hot, breaking this or that record
Grab your chest for this one: in the winter, every winter, it will get cold, breaking this or that record
Wow, deep, eh? Thank you, and yes, I would accept a mere million dollar grant, or billion if you cannot handle a mere million dollars
I could go deeper with the proper grant, say, proving a huge percentage of people who have terminal cancer eat, oh, say, carrots

Another favorite trick of The Sky Is Falling, Send Money crowd is for articles to list multiple sources for their “settled” science, but when you research those sources, you’ll often find they in turn all reference a single questionable study or opinion. Today’s so-called journalists are unwilling to expose this layer of obfuscation because their careers depend on perpetuating the hoax.
That’s multiple levels of collusion, and it should be prosecuted.
I still contend Daylight Saving Time is the real culprit and when the government changed it by 3 weeks a few years ago it exacerbated the problem. When you make the days longer in the summer, it’s going to get hotter. Duh.
“I still contend Daylight Saving Time is the real culprit”
Well, of course.
It’s Bush’s fault! Duh.
J.D. King has outlined the radical of climatists, enviromentalists, etc….
The tactics they are using are frightening. I’m again brought back to the Cass Sunstein/Tim Kuran study of collective behavior that assert that people tend to base their own public opinions (what they tell others) on the opinions of others.
Most people in a community have a natural tendency to try to fit in, and the community, as a whole, exerts pressure on them to do so. It’s as if we as individuals all looked around to assess a playing field before we decided to make our next move. Often out of courtesy, but sometimes out of fear of the unknown, each one of us makes an effort to conform to the expectations of the community.
This leftist tact plays on this tendency. It FALSIFIES a public opinion that the rest of us will try to conform to. It constructs a FALSE PERCEPTION that when acted upon by individuals who are working to align their choices with that of the community, the end result works to the favor of the propagandist.
A good propagandist doesn’ tell people what to do. A good propagandist makes people think it was their idea to begin with. In this playing field, the only people who may know the truth are those with the courage to challenge the group opinion……those who ‘stand out from the crowd’.
“Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take a position which stands out sharply and clearly from the prevailing opinion. The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everybody. Not a few men who cherish lofty and noble ideas hide them under a bushel for fear of being called different.”

I’ll watch that – coyotes were reintroduced here a few years ago and have taken hold. The neighbor’s dogs have been attacked several times, every morning I find new sign in the back yard, and a week ago Roscoe The Barn Cat disappeared. I fear for the worst – cats are coyote’s favorite food.
The deer population is at an all time high – shrub and garden destruction this year is the worst our community has ever seen. Rabbits, chipmunks, and squirrels are more numerous than anyone can remember. The coyotes are feeding on domestic animals which are tamer and easier prey.
Our situation parallels the government [mis]management of Yellowstone. Initial mistakes are “corrected” with more mistakes; rinse and repeat. It’s just another example of the liberal desire to control every aspect of creation.
There was a reason we drove out the predators originally and now with more people [yet fewer who have the sense to understand the danger] it even more important to control them.
You might enjoy reading this – I’m going to order a copy. (No I’m not joking)
The address will probably do that ugly run-out but I don’t believe in using blind links in comments. Well, except goatse.
watch out for rabies. and mange. had to treat my dogs with 2 visits to the vet for shots of the i forget what it’s called, but i could get my hands on it, but was afraid i’d kill my own dogs, with dosage wise – stuff.
they don’t have to come in contact with the actual predator with mange (fox are notorious, i see alot of bald fox around here early a.m. ) the dogs only have to come in contact with some surface that was previously touched.
Yep. This year my bro replanted his veggie garden twice. (I think that’s what he said) The reason? Deer and critters chomping them to bits. Just this AM on the way to church we nearly hit a deer. Usually it’s in the evening that I’m more cautious of them lurching about. Yes, our yard has been a veritable zoo. Opposums, squirrels, badger, varieties of game birds, coyote, wolf, bear, racoons, mice, other rodentia, gophers, moles (seems no ending of the darn moles), etc. As much as I do enjoy the outdoors and the critters, there needs to be a balance. The numbers of deers as road kill looks to be numerous as one drives along to see their scattered carcasses along the highways.
The movie itself I have not yet looked @ it, but did receive an email on it. The Curtis Bowers fellow that put out Agenda: Grinding America Down (which I have seen) is of the organization that puts out the alerts on this.
