I’m always amazed at some of the laughable and often very hypocritical productions coming from so-called environmentalists, and believers in the man-made global warming fearmongering. I was looking at the Earthhourus.org website and found a Youtube video trailer for an upcoming show on “NatGeo” that wants to give us a visual representation of what the average person consumes in a lifetime. They do it by gathering all of the products one might consume during the course of their life and lay them all out on the ground for us to see. Then I guess were supposed to feel bad and buy the “energy efficient” products that their sponsors sell and become supporters of carbon-tracking and more taxation, reduced rights, etc. Amazingly in the trailer they discuss how much a toddler consumes as if to say that somehow the child is bad or shouldn’t have been born at all because its hurting the environment by eating and living? This is just sickening.
I have to wonder if these people were thinking at all about some of the harmful messages they were sending about and toward children and if they realize how much wasted resources and how big of a “carbon footprint” they left by amassing all of these products to display for the show. The show’s tagline should be changed to “The Human Footprint: We just made it bigger.”
Are we to believe then that we can “fight climate change” and have any real impact on something that is most likely the result of a solar cycle and not so dependent on what kinds of cars we drive? And what about the evidence that shows that climate change is happening on other planets the same as on Earth?
There seems to be other motives behind all of the fear and propaganda:
…Hayden said the global-warming issue is fueled by scare tactics backed by “big money.”
He said that on a recent trip to New York City, he saw several billboards advertising the long-term effects of global warming. He learned that each billboard sold for $700,000 a month.
…the increased carbon-dioxide levels that global-warming promoters keep talking about is nothing new. He said the levels of carbon dioxide have been rising and falling for more than 400,000 years.
“We are at the lowest levels in the last 300,000 years,” he said. “During the Jurassic period, we had very high levels of carbon dioxide.”
Hayden added that the majority of carbon dioxide is the result of natural sources and not to be blamed on humankind.
Worldwide, the burning of coal, oil and gas contributes to only an estimated 3 percent of the carbon-dioxide emissions, he said.
“About 97 percent of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere comes from natural sources, not humans,” Hayden said.
He said the buzz about global warming may be pushed by the corporations that will benefit from concepts such as carbon tracking and carbon trading. (The Pueblo Chieftain Online)
The Guardian reported recently that the “Alliance for Climate Protection plans to spend $300m (about £150m) on television advertising and online organising to make global warming among the most urgent issues for elected American leaders.” More backing from big corporations? I’m pretty sure the $300m wasn’t raised by grassroots members of the green party.
