While the above press release is admittedly satirical, it would not be humorous if it did not contain a nugget of truth. Disaster scenarios have been around, of course, since Thomas Malthus started the genre in 1798, and they have been a traditional stock in trade for crackpots who try to grasp a moment of fame by predicting the end of the world. What is new is the refinement of the technique by neo-Marxists and world federalists into a tool of terrorism by disguising impossible predictions of impending cataclysms as science. Al Gore’s frenetic schlockumentary is a good example.
An Inconvenient Truth was chock full of convenient lies. Gore contends, for example, that antarctic ice cores show that the last four interglacial warming periods were caused by increased atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. Actually the referenced ice cores show that the carbon dioxide levels followed the warming by from 800 to 2,800 years. In other words, the scientific evidence proves that it was the effects of the warming, such as out gassing of dissolved carbon dioxide from the oceans and proliferation of vegetation (and rotting vegetation) that caused the increase in carbon dioxide, not the other way around.
Gore says the polar bear population is declining, but biologists know that it has actually increased 500% since 1940.
Gore says Atlantic hurricanes and Japanese typhoons have increased in frequency and intensity, but climatologists know that the frequency and wind speed of Atlantic hurricanes has remained constant for at least the last 100 years and the number and severity of Japanese typhoons has actually decreased over the last 50 years.
Gore says that Pacific atolls are being inundated by rising sea levels, but a recent scientific study of the 26 atolls in the Maldive Islands showed that the sea level today is the same as it was 1,250 years ago. All of these and numerous other untruths presented in the movie were touted as scientific findings, yet in fact not one of them has a shred of scientific underpinning and most of them are directly refuted by scientific evidence.
This is scienterrorism – the terrorizing of the populace with impossible disaster scenarios masquerading as science. It is being practiced by our government and by the world socialists at the United Nations for the purpose of laying the groundwork for the nationalization (or in the case of the UN globalization) of all industry, commerce, and resources, as outlined in Marx’s Communist Manifesto and in the UN’s agenda 21. They want to do this for your own good, of course, but in case you’re too smart to swallow that one, they have "scientific" evidence showing that it’s necessary whether you like it or not.
A few tips on recognizing scienterrorism when you encounter it. Anyone who uses the phrase "settled science" is lying. Settled science is an oxymoron. Science is the evolution of human knowledge and it is constantly growing and changing. It can never be "settled."
Anyone who conjoins alleged scientific evidence with a call to action is lying. Calls to action are always motivated by politics, never by science.
And most important, anyone who cites scientific evidence that you know to be untrue is lying.
In this era of rapid scientific advancement, it’s more important than ever before in history that we be informed of scientific facts in order to deflect assaults on our freedoms by scienterrorist’s faux facts. Knowledge is the ultimate defense against scienterrorism. Scienterrorism, works only on those who live in Teddy Roosevelt’s "gray twilight that knows neither success nor failure," and on those "poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much." In other words, Democrats.
