James Delingpole has a fine round up of the climate nutterness for last week.
He’s a fantastic writer! Well worth the read, but, in his last three examples of climate nutterness, we see what we all already knew. These lunatics are totalitarian communists.
3. Australian academic argues: only communist-style revolution or death can save us from climate change
Peter Burdon – currently visiting professor at UC Berkeley – admiringly quotes environmentalists who argue that the authoritarian Chinese model offers our best hope in combating climate change.
For example, in an interview about her new book The Collapse of Western Civilization, Naomi Oreskes argued: “If anyone will weather this storm it seems likely that it will be the Chinese.”
In the book, Oreskes and co-author Erik Conway imagine a future world in which the predictions of the International Panel on Climate Change have come to pass.
With respect to China, the authors predict: China’s ability to weather disastrous climate change vindicated the necessity of centralised government … inspiring similar structures in other, reformulated nations.
Warming to his authoritarian theme, Burdon concludes:
However, the conditions of survival (let alone flourishing) require rational social planning that takes seriously the needs of the entire community.At this period of history, either one of two things is possible. Either the general population will take back control of its own destiny and concern itself with community interests, guided by values such as community, solidarity and concern for others (both human and non human) or alternatively, there will be no destiny for anyone to control.
4. John Kerry says U.S. has Biblically-endorsed responsibility to protect Muslims from Climate Change
No, really. Kerry actually said this. We reported this at Breitbart earlier in the week but you may well have thought it a joke because John Kerry is really quite a senior member of the Obama administration and you probably thought that when people achieve that high a level of public office they’d have speech writers and researchers and flak-catchers and spin-doctors to prevent them ever saying something so egregiously stupid.
5. Ex-Marxist student agitator turned Nobel-Prizewinning President of the Royal Society Sir Paul Nurse channels Krushchev. Disbelievers in man-made climate change, he says, should be “crushed and buried.”
“Today we have those who like to mix science up with ideology and politics, where opinion, rhetoric and tradition hold more sway than adherence to evidence and adherence to logical argument.”
This is what he tells the Guardian newspaper (H/T Bishop Hill), apparently unaware that the person in the world to which this criticism more than anyone applies is the geneticist turned environmental activist who is currently President of the Royal Society.
Yes, crush and bury any dissent and dialogue. Admire and hold up as a model, a totalitarian regime. Argue for strategies Marxists so often employed when enacting their failed ideology.
Ironically, China is the nation which emits the most GHG’s which the lunatics blame on climate change.
