Yes, the "war on terror" is terribly important. So is illegal immigration, federal over-spending, and several other issues. However, some things are being done about these, not necessarily effectively, but being worked on. The one "sleeper" issue coiling to strike is the stampede to action over the "climate crisis." The object of the push by those selling the notion of impending climate crisis is to achieve as much crippling of industrial society as possible BEFORE PEOPLE CATCH ON THAT THEY ARE BEING SHILLED.
Anyone really believing the climate propaganda from the Al Gores and other Dr. Goebbels-like persons is in the same position of those who attended traveling "medicine shows," in days of yore. A "doctor" or "professor" would offer a tonic, an oil, or some colored and flavored liquid in a bottle, with promises that only the severely gullible could believe. They would charge a dollar, or whatever, which was a lot of money back then. The most active ingredient was alcohol which could definitely make one feel improved briefly. By the time the gullible caught on, the medicine show was in some other town.
One thing is for sure about all this climate catewauling: It is a modern day "medicine show." The missing element is the truth. One can compensate for this handicap by reading outstanding books such as The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism, 2007, by Christopher C. Horner. What may be true is that the earth might be in a warming cycle, but what they do not want you to know is that global warming would be good, very good for us.
To follow is one of the biggest myths coming from the enviro-hysterics and enviro-communists (the "watermelons"). This is the "hockey stick" myth, a real piece of sleight-of-hand. I hear numerous members of the "chattering class" talking about this myth as though it were true. In fact, it is in no way true, as you will read here, but not from the "watermelons."
