For years the Obama administration–and especially the president himself–has been pushing the lie that humankind’s modern activities are “warming” the planet and “changing” the weather, all to the worse, of course, and if we don’t curb this activity soon, the entire planet will be lost.
It’s a dire scenario, to be sure, but it is a complete fabrication, from start to finish.
In the past, anyone with an open mind who has been willing to look at the issue of “global warming/climate change” has been shown plenty of evidence exposing this as nothing more than a hoax perpetuated against capitalism. To many of its adherents, it’s more of a cult-like religion (and you know how impossible it is to criticize someone’s religion), but to the creators of this massive hoax, it is nothing less than an attempt to de-legitimize the greatest economic model in the history of the planet–the one that is so successful even communist regimes like China have figured it out (hence that country’s multi-decade, double-digit economic growth).
But through the years, the global warming hoaxers have gone to great lengths to hide the fact that what they’re pushing is not true, not real, and not “dire.” That has included faking “warming” data, dramatically skewing claims that this is all “settled science,” changing the goalposts and the language in order to fit the “narrative,” destroying scientists who don’t “agree” with the narrative, and now, as President Obama has proven, fire top scientists in a bid to keep them quiet so the agenda can be advanced.
As reported by the Free Beacon:
A new congressional investigation has determined that the Obama administration fired a top scientist and intimidated staff at the Department of Energy in order to further its climate change agenda, according to a new report that alleges the administration ordered top officials to obstruct Congress in order to forward this agenda.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R., Texas), chair of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, released a wide-ranging reporton Tuesday that shows how senior Obama administration officials retaliated against a leading scientist and plotted ways to block a congressional inquiry surrounding key research into the impact of radiation.
A top DoE scientist who liaised with Congress on the matter was fired by the Obama administration for being too forthright with lawmakers, according to the report, which provides an in-depth look at the White House’s efforts to ensure senior staffers toe the administration’s line.
The report additionally discovered efforts by the Obama administration to censor the information given to Congress, interfering with the body’s ability to perform critical oversight work.
Now, if your position on Man-caused global warming/climate change was so demonstrably correct and unassailable–which of course would be supported with solid, replicable research–why would you have to go to such lengths to “advance” your “global warming agenda?” In fact, why it is an “agenda” in the first place?
This is important because the Obama regime, along with most of the socialist governments of Europe, have modeled policies on the fake notion that Man’s modern life is killing the planet. Indeed, Obama’s global warming initiatives have cost the U.S. economy hundreds of billions over the course of his tenure, while the combined weight of global warming policies worldwide have cost trillions. This translates into real lost wages, lost jobs, lost opportunities for hundreds of millions of people.
And it’s all premised on a lie.
The incoming Trump administration has signaled it is not going to be duped by the global warming hoaxers any longer, most visibly by the president-elect appointing someone to head the EPA–the agency Obama has used the most to advance his global warming nonsense–who has little use for the agency and it’s job-killing, nonsensical, politically motivated rule-making.
It’s about time this phony-baloney narrative went away for good. It’s creators and perpetrators have done more harm to people around the world than any factory or industry has done to the planet.
