Revolutionary government takeover by promoting climate change legislation. What else would you call severely restrictive government control and confiscatory taxation levels which would empower a "political class" of elected officials, their bureaucratic henchmen and the special interests who bought and paid for their power?
Today's example of the "chicken little syndrome," where officials cry "the sky is falling" based on little or no scientific evidence and wild-ass projections based on flawed computer modeling, comes from Australia where the "eco-Nazis" are trying to force the signing of the globally destructive Kyoto protocol.
From an AFP (Agence France-Presse) report...
"Climate change poses this century's biggest security threat, possibly forcing the migration of millions of people from countries such as China, Australia's top policeman has warned."
A declarative fact not supported by the evidence, followed by his projection based on nothing more than a popular "doomsday-like" scenario with little probability of happening. I wonder what he thinks about the more likely scenario of a rogue nation obtaining nuclear weapons which, if detonated in the oilfields of the Middle East, could disrupt the economies of all industrial nations?
"Water and food shortages could send waves of migrants across oceans and borders in the Asia-Pacific region, causing social disruption and unrest, said Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty."
"For China to feed its predicted 2030 population, it needs to increase its food production by about 50 percent above today's levels," Keelty said.
"How does it achieve this, if its available land is dramatically shrinking and millions of people are on the move because of land and water.
Shouda, Woulda, Coulda projections based on nothing more than a faulty birthrate projection which has been linearized (straight line projection) and may not be representative of the underlying facts.
"In their millions, people could begin to look for new land and they'll cross oceans and borders to do it."
Is this an long-term opportunity to invest in boat and airplanes? Or perhaps, we would have developed more "efficient" green transport in twenty to thirty years. Projections, as you can see, go both ways.
Does his scenario only work one way or are our scientists capable of figuring out how to using nuclear energy to power desalinization plants in the next twenty years? Has this idiot ever consider that Los Angeles is a thriving megalopolis built on a desert -- made possible by the importation and judicious use of water? Or has he ever visited Dubai or the United Arab Emirates in August? Does he think that their populations have not adapted to warmer or extremely "hot" climates? Or does this dumbo think that people will simply migrate to maintain their comfort zone involving a few degrees over thousands of years?
The mass displacement of people "particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, could create a great deal of social uncertainty and unrest in the region," Keelty said.
"The potential security issues are enormous and should not be underestimated."
I wonder if he bases his comments on the mass migration of Mexicans into the Southwestern portion of the United States. Here we have a mini-model of what happens when a population shift illegally invades another country and destroys its infrastructure. In essence, a demographic bomb is being exploded. Social uncertainty: you mean like having to order a meal in Spanish in the local drive through or being unable to read warning signs in a foreign language?
Even if only some of the predictions of catastrophic change wrought by global warming materialised, "climate change is going to be the security issue of the 21st century," Keelty said.
If only politicians and government officials had brains and were not beholden to special interests, perhaps words like "prediction" and "catastrophic," would give way to other words like "probability" and "nonsense." How does "even if" justify the great transfer of wealth from the poorer to the richer based on carbon offset trading schemes?
Australia and the United States are the only two developed countries in the world to have refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, the main international treaty on fighting climate change.
As if signing a global treaty will actually change the climate of the earth... but it is sure to change the political climate for all global citizens who will be "terrorized" and bled of their assets by their own politicians and their special interest supporters.
If this stupid cop had a brain, and that it a very big assumption, why wouldn't he consider the simple fact that, if push came to shove, China might militarily invade Australia for its natural resources and living accommodations? Which would put the matter way beyond the simple matter of "security" and move his projections all the way to "survival."
What can YOU do?
Note: because the scientific facts do not support the conclusion and so much of the climate issue involves complex computer models are based on faulty and speculative assumptions, the "global warming" crowd now refers to the phenomenon of "global warming" using the words "climate change." Possibly because one of the global warming scientist/cheerleaders at NASA published a "global cooling" theory years earlier citing exactly the same causes and promoting the very same prescriptions for avoidance.
Note: that every politician who wants an unquestioned free ride to support their own legislation -- mostly sponsored by special interests -- is jumping on the bandwagon as anyone who disagrees is now branded a "denier." The word having an extremely bad connotation since the term "holocaust denier" was coined to denote those who did not believe in a verifiable fact. Unfortunately those who use the term do not see the irony in their use of the word to support their "unverifiable" facts and "projections."
We, as a people, must learn to cease being "sheeple" and stand up for our rights, freedoms and against those who would curtail them in the name of security or the greater good. The oft-quoted and paraphrased proverb that "He who gives up freedom for safety, shall have neither" has never been more true in this nation's history. But it might serve some purpose to note what Benjamin Franklin actually published.
"Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power."
Which is the whole point of the global warming/climate change scheme.
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security and sovereignty of the United States for personal power, prestige or profits.
