A few minutes ago, I caught the last of a Fox News Channel interview with Dr. Timothy Ball. Dr. Ball has been receiving DEATH THREATS because he chooses to be scientific about climate and not spew the dogmatism of alarmists. When a scientist receives death threats about his dedication to the truth, whatever the evidence supports, we are in a pre-Nazi period. Dr. Ball is not the first to be castigated or physically threatened.
Aside from telling lies of commission and calling them "facts" about so-called "global warming" and humans' role in it, the main stream media, print and broadcast, also lie by omission. Most have abandoned any semblance of a "fair and balanced" approach because they have bought into the new marketing strategy of calling this climate change kerfuffle a "moral issue." They omit, then, opposing points of view, and above all, they omit the actual facts and the purveyors of actual facts, the real climate scientists. Let us not forget that facts refer to that which exists in reality, and they are independent of who thinks them or accepts them.
With the foregoing in mind, I could not wait to buy and start reading a truly fabulous book: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism, by Christopher C. Horner [Regnery, NY; ISBN 978-1-59698-501-8; 2007]. Like many others, I have not known enough to be able to discount everything asserted by these so-called "environmentalists." I needed facts to fill out my deep suspicions of these "greenies." What I am getting from Mr. Horner's book far exceeds my wildest expectations and desires.
The book is broad and deep in scope, and enjoys a talented readability. Mr. Horner divides the book into four sections:
- Environmentalism and Authoritarians
- Global Warming: The Convenient Lies
- The False Prophets (and Real Profits) of Global Warming
- Making You Poorer and Less Free
Each chapter has left me infuriated at these "greens," or "watermelons," as they have come to be known (green on the outside and red on the inside). If you ever wondered where the philosophical and emotional supporters of communism and nazism went after the formal regimes collapsed, you will find them in the environmental movement. Their motivation is entirely evil. Like the jihadists, they want you to die, and they do not hesitate to tell you this. If you doubt me, peruse this book.
One of the evilest of all is Al Gore, who is in this matter solely to work a power-lusting agenda.
I have decided to emphasize selected chapters in future articles, so I will reserve my support of my statements about the issues, the "greens," and Al Gore for those articles.
One other caveat must be mentioned. Until recently, I called myself an "environmentalist," just as many, good-intentioned but under-informed people have done and still do. We care about our environment and do not want to soil our nests locally or globally. When I see trash that some unseen churl threw on the ground, I pick it up. I recycle, and I dispose of toxic materials properly. I consider that proper stewardship of our common environment. I do not resemble "greens" in the slightest. Just as the left abused the term "liberal," so the greens abuse the term "environmentalists." Others, well-intentioned, must make a similar separation from truly evil people and causes. Dr. Timothy Ball has not been threatened by people like us, but he has been threated by these enviro-communists and enviro-nazis.
Incidentally, here is a blurb about the author from the book cover:
Christopher C. Horner is a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, an acknowledged expert on global warming legislation and regulation, and has spoken before Senate committees and the European Parliament.
This book retails for $19.95 and is in soft cover. Whatever you pay for it, it will reward you many fold over.
