Why Liberals Want You To Believe Climate Change is Man-Made

by Christopher N. Malagisi

Were Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused by man-made climate change?  Liberals would have you believe that climate change, formerly known as global warming, is predominantly a man-made phenomenon.  Stated plainly, they believe man has the power to control the weather.

They claim the science is settled and that there is no need for further debate.  But in recent history, there has never been such a contentious and continuous scientific debate, especially when the science has supposedly already been settled.

Their claims are that the planet is heating up due to man-made caused emissions of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, which is trapping heat near the surface of the earth.  This heat is warming the oceans around the world and has caused everything from polar icebergs melting, to sea levels rising, harsher natural disasters, mass population displacement, and even wars.

According to former Vice President Al Gore, and An Inconvenient Truth documentarian, climate change is the most serious challenge facing the world today.  Even former President Obama stated it is America’s greatest national security threat.  Not ISIS, not North Korea, not even nuclear proliferation.

Yet according to Gallup, time and time again, most Americans rank climate change near the bottom of their issue priorities.  Most Americans barely winced when President Trump released America from the international Paris Climate Accord, which was hailed as a paragon of international diplomatic consensus on the issue.

This confounds liberals.  They, and our political elite, scratch their heads and wonder why most Americans don’t believe their claims.  It’s decided science, of course; the debate is over.  Hardly.

I don’t personally believe man controls the weather or is able to do so, but I’m willing to concede there may be some man-made activity that affects our natural environment.  I’m not a denier, but am rather a skeptic, and believe science is never really settled as new information and scientific discoveries are always being made that can change the so-called “consensus.”  Just ask Ptolomy and Capernicus about that.

Sometimes our “consensus makers” educate themselves out of all common sense.  What makes more sense – that the world goes through warming and cooling periods (remember the Ice Age?), which we have fossilized evidence proving this, or that man can directly effect the weather on earth more so than the forces of nature, the moon, and the sun?  Were there no hurricanes or natural disasters before the Industrial Revolution?  It’s pretty absurd, and even arrogant, when you think about it.

Is it really hard to wonder why most Americans are skeptical about the climate change “consensus”?  At a minimum, is it not prudent to acknowledge the debate is not over, before we decide on serious public policy legislation that could damage or diminish our personal health, economic prosperity, overall well-being, and yes, even our natural environment?

Environmentalism at one point was a proud movement with noble aims.  Republicans in particular have a proud heritage of conservation and protecting the environment.  Republican Teddy Roosevelt was the first president to use federal lands to create national wildlife parks and created the United States Forest Service.  And it was President Nixon who created the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and signed the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, now considered landmark environmental legislation.

Yet in the last 40 years or so, the modern environmental movement has become the home of remaining ragtag, leftover socialist assemblages in the world.  After being considered fringe elements during the Cold War, they retreated to a “safe space” issue home that would allow them to profligate their big government agenda under the respectful banner of “environmentalism.”

Their aims are to use the “man-made” argument to dictate and regulate all the things they find abhorrent in our free market and democratic society.  If the government can tell you what to eat, drink, wear, buy, and drive, they can pretty much regulate any aspect of your life.  Don’t believe me?  Read the policy aims of the so-called “reasonable” environmental group Sierra Club and tell me what “gender” has to do with “climate disruption.”  I’m not kidding – read it.

At the end of the day, most Americans want clean air and clean water, are for renewable energy, and believe we should conserve our natural environments as best as we can.  After recognizing the Industrial Revolution’s negative effect on our environment, humans have made great progress on these fronts to the point that we now have some of best air and water quality levels in modern times.

Before we blame humans for what had always been known as “weather” since the beginning of time, perhaps it would be prudent to continue investigating the issue further, and recognize the aims and intentions of those who want to transform our lives and livelihoods to meet their political ends.  As you can see, the debate is not over.

To learn more about global warming and the truth about climate change alarmists’ real agenda, you should definitely read Christopher Horner’s The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming.

Fun Fact: According to the Pew Research Center, 70% of Democrats, and only 15% of Republicans, ascribe to the man-made climate change “consensus.”

    Hey Brenda, you are a moron. You no nothing about climate change or weather.
    You are just the typical liberal that is totally miss-informed and uninformed.
    What real research have you made. Manmade global warming, is a farce and
    the biggest con ever accomplished and on a global scale. Honey, it is all about money and re-distribution of wealth by the globalist.

    John Muir always wanted to see a glacier after reading about admiral Vancouver’s observations of s glacier fronting the pacific ocean in 1779. 84 years later no glacier, only glacier bay. The glacier had receded 25 miles. Manmade global warming? Be serious!!

    Brenda, you have become a embarrassment to yourself. You need serious mental health therapy. I have a daughter who is currently studying to become a geophysicist. We have our honest discussions about climate change. Stop calling everyone who does not subscribe to you way of thinking a racist. I am clearly not a racist. I don’t just talk the talk, I walk the walk in my life. I am tired of you liberals insulting my intelligence with your ignorance. You don’t have a valid argument so stop lying to yourself. I happen to believe in climate change in some form. The bible states that in the end times extreme changing weather patterns will take place on the planet. This is just one more thing that is happening now to verify that. You people throw things at the wall and hope it sticks. It doesn’t stick anymore.

    Brenda, Brenda, Brenda. Please don’t fall into the trap of saying that anyone who disagrees with your interpretation of reality lacks intelligence. Nor should you attempt to buttress your argument by claiming agreement from this or that Hollywood icon or politician or scientist. And please don’t close your mind to contrary data, since those of us who don’t believe we “lack understanding of basic science” also believe that knowledge is ever-evolving in many areas, and to say that something is “settled” today might be proven “ridiculous” (your word) given advances in the future. Consider the vast advances in medicine over the past hundred years as an example — still consider using leaches? If your “evidence” is overwhelming, does it take into account things like the Holocene Maximum (ca. 6000 BC), the Medieval Warm Period (ca. 1200-1400) and the Little Ice Age (ca. 1400-1700)? All evidences of fluctuation in the Earth’s climate that didn’t have anything to do with SUVs. Open your mind and take advantage of easily-available resources for more information. Try https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJBDI7jVMqM for a start. Call such information lies if you want, but ask yourself this: Who has the most to gain in this argument, those getting all the government grants to proclaim climate change, or those claiming status quo. When in doubt, follow the money.

    The author seems to be ignorant of the difference between climate and weather. Or is conflating the two to make your argument seem stronger.
    Unconvincing.

    I can be conservative but I still would not sit in a closed garage with 2 cars running. I do not want to bet my grandchildren’s future against bigger oil company profits. So many who deny the science of climate, bought the special glasses to view the eclipse that scientists predicted very far in advance. Are you willing to sell out the beautiful earth God gave to us???

    And Tucker Carlson is NOT an intelligent person, he is a racist.

  15. Brenda Hatfield

    Anybody with any intelligence knows that climate change is real, and that a lot of it is caused by humans. To try to say otherwise when the evidence is overwhelming, is ridiculous and shows a lack of understanding of basic science.
