Secular fundamentalists

By Cal Thomas

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | You don't have to be religious to qualify as a fundamentalist. You can be Al Gore, the messiah figure for the global warming cult, whose followers truly believe their gospel of imminent extermination in a Noah-like flood, if we don't immediately change our carbon polluting ways.

One of the traits of a cult is its refusal to consider any evidence that might disprove the faith. And so it is doubtful the global warming cultists will be moved by 400 scientists, many of whom, according to the Washington Times, "are current or former members of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Mr. Gore for publicizing a climate crisis." In a report by Republican staff of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, these scientists cast doubt on a "scientific consensus" that global warming caused by humans endangers the planet.

Like most cultists, the true believers struck back, not by debating science, but by charging that a small number of the scientists mentioned in the report have taken money from the petroleum industry. A spokeswoman for Al Gore said 25 or 30 of the scientists may have received funding from Exxon Mobile Corp. Exxon Mobile spokesman Gantt H. Walton dismissed the accusation, saying, "the company is concerned about climate-change issues and does not pay scientists to bash global-warming theories."

The pro-global warming cultists enjoy a huge money advantage. Paleoclimate scientist Bob Carter, who has testified before the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, noted in an EPW report how much money has been spent researching and promoting climate fears and so-called solutions: "In one of the more expensive ironies of history, the expenditure of more than $50 billion (US) on research into global warming since 1990 has failed to demonstrate any human-caused climate trend, let alone a dangerous one," he wrote on June 18, 2007. The $19 million spent on research that debunks the global warming faith pales in comparison.

Also included in the Republican report are comments by Dutch atmospheric scientist Hendrik Tennekes: "I find the Doomsday picture Al Gore is painting a six-meter sea level rise, 15 times the IPCC number entirely without merit. I protest vigorously the idea that the climate reacts like a home heating system to a changed setting of the thermostat: just turn the dial, and the desired temperature will soon be reached."

Oklahoma Senator James M. Inhofe, ranking Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee, said the report debunks Mr. Gore's claim that the "debate is over." In fact, the debate hasn't even begun because the global warming cultists won't debate. Despite numerous challenges, Al Gore has refused to debate the issue with any credible scientist who is a skeptic. Shouldn't the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize be willing to debate such an important issue? What does he have to fear? If his theory cannot stand up to scientific inquiry and skepticism, it needs to be exposed as a false religion and himself as a false prophet before he and his followers force us to change the way we live and alter the prosperous society that generations of Americans have built.

Gore and his disciples will still be living in their big houses, driving gas-guzzling cars and flying in private jets that leave carbon footprints as large as Bigfoot's, while most of us will be forced to drive tiny automobiles and live in huts resembling the Third World. But hypocrisy is just one of many traits displayed by secular fundamentalists like Gore.

Before adopting any faith, the agendas of the people attempting to impose it, along with the beliefs held by them and their disciples, should be considered. Gore and company are big government liberals who think government is the answer to all of our problems, including problems they create. In fact, as Ronald Reagan often said, in too many cases government is the problem.

The secular fundamentalists who believe in Al Gore as a prophet and global warming as a religious doctrine are being challenged by scientists and others who disbelieve and who think we ought to be spending more time on developing new technology and energy sources for the future and not preaching gloom, doom and retreat. Let them debate the issue. If they won't, we can only conclude that all they are spewing is hot air.<hr /></blockquote>

Now, fellow conservatives, watch them run from discussion.

Everyone on the left is now claiming they want good discussions, yet when something is posted that isn't a moonbat B-B-B-B-BUT BOOOOOOOOOOOOSH! story from a moonbat B-B-B-B-BUT BOOOOOOOOOOOOSH! source they all run away.

Perhaps some of you should read the same thread on AZB to see how an intellectual liberal such as Andrew Manning can carry on intelligent discussion with people of a different POV without running out the same lame B-B-B-B-BUT BOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!argument everytime.

Once a concensus has been reached, it is a waste of valuable time to keep raising questions. You just don't understand how urgent it is to get the spending underway before we all just up and die. The consensus is nearly unanamous of everyone in Hollywood....nuf said.

You will find that Gayle, wolfie, drop1, and dick leonard will NEVER engage unless it is a hate filled B-B-B-B-BUT BOOOOOOOOOOOOSH! rant.

They know that Saint Albert of Green Acres is a liar and they care not a whit.

I can't truly believe that anyone wanting to have an intelligent discussion about the possibility of human-caused global warming would post something that is so obviously inflammatory to get things started.
As far as my own opinions on the subject are concerned, I will start by saying that I'm not an expert by any means. I have seen some compelling arguments on both sides of the issue and feel that much more can and should be done to reduce the carnage that we are wreaking on the planet. Some of the stuff that we have already done and are continuing to do is not healthy for us or our planetary cohabitants.
It's fairly easy to see that we have created unhealthy levels of pollutants in the atmospheres surrounding some of our largest cities. We pay people to assess, manage, and correct (to the extent possible) the damage we have done and are doing to various ecosystems because of our greed, carelessness, and apathy.
Certainly the records show that the global climate fluctuates normally and it may be naive or egotistical to think that anything we do has any negative affect on climate change. However, I feel that we have a responsibility to respect our environment as well as to do what we can to ensure a healthy environment for future generations. I also feel that we might be better off paying all of the scientists that are spending so much time trying to prove/disprove global warming for finding better ways of managing our waste and what everyone has to agree are our finite resources.
There's my moonbat rant for you, you rightwing thug!

Kudos. Good post ... except you felt a need to get a slur in at someone.

You see, other than that, this is how adult conversation takes place.

BTW, I also think GW is happening.
