Mark Hertsgaard and James Hansen: Adapting to Climate Change Now

Climate change?

Finally, some good news for the planet:

Scientists made environmental protection necessary in the first place when they supposedly polluted the planet with their evil chemicals and cancer-causing pesticides, and so how ironic is it that we bowed like fools to our gods of science for twenty-five years of “unstoppable warming”?

Scientists are not gods, and don’t forget that scientists also produced cruise missiles, cancer causing chemicals, land mine technology, nuclear weapons, germ warfare, cluster bombs, strip mining technology, Y2K, Y2Kyoto, deep sea drilling technology and now climate control. Proof of consensus not being real is the fact that scientists did not march in the streets when IPCC funding was pulled, the EPA was castrated and Obama’s not even mentioning the “crisis” in his State of the Union speech. Consensus was a myth because if it were true, the consensus scientists declaring a climate emergency would act like it was an emergency and demand their CO2 mitigation be taken seriously. We believed a handful of lab coat consultants who said we could control the planet’s temperature and prevent it from boiling. Pure insanity, as history will call this modern-day witch-burning. The new denier is anyone still believing voters will vote yes to taxing the air to make the weather colder. Not going to happen.

Real planet lovers don't hold scientists as gods and bow to politicians promising to make lower the seas and scare kids with such doomsday glee.

There is now a solid grass roots effort by the masses of former climate change believers to have the leading scientists and leading news editors subjected to criminal charges for knowingly sustaining the false CO2 death threats to billions of children for the last twenty-five years of the climate blame mistake.

Stay tuned. We missed getting Bush for his false war and a wave of former believer rage will get this one right. Call the courthouse.
