Over the last 18 months I’ve made a few posts about the “Global Warming” Hoax.
But today, Ed Morrissey expresses my thoughts exactly, along with video evidence of political (not scientific) agenda:
The global-warming movement isn’t really about climate. It’s about stunting the economic growth of the West. That’s why groups like Greenpeace like to “emotionalize” rather than conduct and promote actual science. They’re interested in specific outcomes, not scientific truth, and that specific outcome is statist control over energy production and economic activity to redistribute wealth.
It’s not about environmentalism.
It’s about communism.
The Global Warming Hoax is a tool that the Democratic Socialists use as an excuse to block U.S. access to U.S. oil reserves (which are over three times the oil reserves of Saudi Arabia!). There is no reason for the U.S.A. to import even a single drop of oil. We could be an oil exporter. We could even be the world’s #1 oil exporter if we chose to be.
The world’s current #1 oil exporter is Saudi Arabia.
The world’s current #2 oil exporter is Russia.
Russia has been rebuilding using revenues from oil exports.
The communists have a vested interest in preventing U.S. access to U.S. oil.
The communists have a vested interest in keeping the U.S.A. dependent on foreign oil. A significant portion of our oil imports come from Venezuela. Our purchase of Venezuelan oil helps support Chavez.
Again, it’s not about environmentalism – it’s about communism.
