"Blog Action Day is an annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day on their own blogs with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 will be the largest-ever social change events on the web. One day. One issue. Thousands of voices."If you're a good little greenie and/or a good little liberal, you of course expect my posting to be on the impending disaster caused by the nasty old industrially-produced climate change, and all the grotesquely expensive methods we must employ to remedy such change. After all, this is the only respectable, politically correct standpoint, right?
Sorry, Gentle Readers -- I skipped that particular pitcher of Kool-Aid.
Having always marched to the rat-a-tat-tat of my own drum, I've trawlled the web to bring you links to subversive articles that controvert the "correct" position. I'm sure there is evidence (objective, factual, truly scientific evidence that is not politically or financially motivated nor controlled) indicating that we are in the beginning stages of a "climate change" of some sort. There is also ample evidence that this dear Earth has never STOPPED changing -- according to its own natural course and unaffected one whit by human critters.
I find the Climate Change Chicken Littles of the world laughably, ironically, ridiculously arrogant in their assumptions that A) we have more than incidental impact on the Earth's atmosphere and climate; B) that because we are accustomed to this particular eon's temperature, ocean levels, ice pack volume, weather behavior, etc., these are the only conditions under which the human race could possibly survive, and we could NEVER adapt to anything else. This stance ignores the reality that we the living are proof that we HAVE adapted over millions of years to everything nature has thrown at us. I wasn't issued a contract at birth promising that summer in my chosen environment will be 85-100 and winter 55-15 degrees. Human history has been written within the context of suffering and surviving nature's whimsy -- yet here we are, all 6,798,000,000 of us.
If you don't think this science or pseudo-science of climate change is linked directly to issues that will affect YOU, Google "cap and trade" and see what will await average, every-day American consumers if this madness is passed. HERE is an article from the Wall Street Journal that in a rational world would be satire, but terrifyingly isn't as this bill awaits Congress' action.
Note: I wrote most of this blog on Sunday, 10/11. On Tuesday, I received a message from the organizers of Blog Action Day. In light of the last link of this post (#10, below), I'm posting part of that email (don't you just LOVE irony!):
Hey bloggers,Now that I've stated my own disbelief in the new religion of Climatism, here are a few links for your education and amusement.
We have exciting news! Blog Action Day has partnered with Al Gore's group the Alliance for Climate Protection to start a global online action addressed to the one country whose actions will most influence the future of our climate: the United States.
As many of you know, this December world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to negotiate a global response to climate change. As a world leader in greenhouse gas pollution as well as clean energy technology, the United States needs to take bold and urgent action by implementing comprehensive clean energy policies to curb emissions.
Nobel Peace Prize Winner and President Barack Obama has said that climate change is an urgent threat, and now is the time for him to lead the United States in confronting climate crisis.
