With growing momentum, the left has shouted the global warming message from the rooftops. While getting my bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, I had global warming spoon fed to me during a book report I had to do on Al Gore’s The Earth in the Balance. I rejected its message even before it was widely discussed.
That was then. Since then we have heard the message morph into “Climate Change” and “Environmental Justice”, but it still has the same goal…to deprive American citizens of their freedom to think for themselves. Written during WWII, F.A. Hayek, a member of the London School of Economics, saw this change in England, how much more do we see it now?
It is not difficult to deprive the great majority of independent thought. But the minority who will retain an inclination to criticize must also be silenced. ~F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
We see people belittled and ridiculed for the audacity of merely disagreeing that Climate Change is a result of America’s prosperity. Climate change supporters are deniers of their own inconvenient truth. There are periods of warming and cooling throughout the history of our planet that pre-date the industrialization of our society.
It is now difficult to discern who speaks truthfully and who has an agenda. Dr. Landsea, a hurricane researcher warned that the IPCC’s agenda had become politicized back in 2005 in his Open Letter to the Community.
It is beyond me why my colleagues would utilize the media to push an unsupported agenda that recent hurricane activity has been due to global warming. ~ Dr. Landsea
I personally cannot in good faith continue to contribute to a process that I view as both being motivated by pre-conceived agendas and being scientifically unsound. ~ Dr. Landsea
The Chicago Climate Exchange, set up in 2003, stood to benefit from global warming alarm and subsequent carbon dioxide emission regulation from the EPA. The question is why??? Why would then 2008 Presidential candidate Obama tell the nation our energy prices would necessarily skyrocket? How is that good for We The People?
Hayek’s concerns from a different time and place are just as true today. The common thread is the underlying reason why…
…every act of the government, must become sacrosanct and exempt from criticism. If the people are to support the common effort without hesitation, they must be convinced that not only the end aimed at but also the means chosen are the right ones. The official creed, to which adherence must be enforced, will therefore comprise all the views about facts on which the plan is based. Public criticism or even expression of doubt must be suppressed because they tend to weaken public support. ~ F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
We The People must recognize that the continual erosion of our freedom as this fundamental transformation seeks to socialize this nation requires silence from the opposition. Ridicule has been used to attempt to silence Americans who dare to disagree with the left.
Don’t lose hope. Never be silent!
With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. ~Matthew 19:26 (ESV)
