Your Curmudgeon doesn’t blog about global warming, but that’s not because we’re in denial — it’s because we don’t know the subject well enough, so we leave it to others. Today, however, we’ll make an exception.
In the Williamson Daily News of Williamson, West Virginia (population 3,191) we found this headline: Our planet in peril from progressives, not warming. The newspaper has a comments feature, but there aren’t any comments yet. The article was written by Mark Caserta, described as: “a conservative blogger and a regular contributor to HD Media opinion pages.” Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The myth of “man-made” global warming may be the largest progressive hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. The climate may be changing, but it’s not because of your SUV.
Wow — man-made global warming could be a bigger hoax than evolution! And that’s was just the beginning of the article. We’re going to skip most of it and excerpt only the most amusing part. Caserta says:
Reputable scientists, as well as hundreds of meteorologists, openly refute the idea of manmade global warming or “anthropogenic global warming,” with some very solid research available online.
Okay — now here’s what got our attention:
One such well-known scientist is founder of the Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter, creationist Ken Ham.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Ol’ Hambo is is a reputable, well-known scientist! Then he quotes from something Hambo wrote in 2014:
“Starting from the Bible, we know that there was a global flood a few thousand years ago that completely changed Earth’s surface and climate, and that the earth is still settling down from this catastrophe,” Ham said in a blog post. “So, we should expect there to be some variations in climate change, but this is not alarming and is not the direct result of modern human activity.”
We’re not given a link to the source, so we searched Hambo’s website and found it: Climate Change and Aliens? You can read it if you like. We ignored it when it first appeared, and we’re not going to bother reading it now.
After quoting Hambo — who is a reputable, well-known scientist — Caserta tells us:
Yet, environmentalists seem less concerned with facts than they do perpetuating a myth that lines their pockets with grant money, compliments of your tax dollars.
Caserta babbles a bit more, and concludes his article with this:
Yes, earth’s climate is changing – it always has. But mankind’s activities haven’t overwhelmed or significantly impacted nature’s order. Our planet isn’t in peril from mankind, only from progressives who would seize control of your money under the guise of environmental austerity.
So there you have it, dear reader. Now you know all you need to know about global warming.
