Orwellian Global Warming Dreams

al gore democrat agsIn March a group of Democratic attorneys general formed “AG’s United for Clean Power.”

It sounds nice enough, doesn’t it? New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, standing beside a grinning Al Gore, announced that the gang was going after any energy providers and distributors who may have committed thought crimes such as questioning the human cause of the 0.8oC global warming since 1880.

MIT atmospheric scientist Richard Lindzen said the appropriate response to this tiny warming is to shrug and say, “So what?” It is a tiny fraction of the daily temperature change in most places, and a smaller fraction of the seasonal temperature change. But at the AGs’ meeting Al Gore called it a “climate crisis.”

The state AGs are in lockstep with federal Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who recently said she is considering legal actions against “climate change deniers” (a nonexistent species, since no one denies that climate changes).

You may wonder how this could be possible in the United States, where freedom of speech is guaranteed in the Constitution.

Imagine a society in which one is under near-ubiquitous surveillance. Such a vision is remarkably close to the reality of 21st century America, if the words of Supreme Court Justice Steven Breyer are to be believed. In statements regarding a recent case he said, “If you win this case, then there is nothing to prevent the police or the government from monitoring 24 hours a day the public movement of every citizen of the United States.”

We’re already under a voluntary microscope with tools like Facebook. Small wonder that politicians desire a similar bonanza. With total data coverage, attorneys general will find it easy to harm those who are not in total support of correct political priorities. Justice Breyer thought such a possibility resembled, too closely for comfort, the dystopian society George Orwell wrote of in his novel 1984.

In more than this we resemble Orwell’s Oceania, which had its own form of twisted English called Newspeak. Newspeak was carefully devised to meet the ideological needs of Ingsoc, or English Socialism. It made it difficult, nearly impossible, for the common prole to have incorrect ideas. Newspeak, as a mode of expression, acted to develop correct mental habits and make all other thoughts inconceivable.

“It was intended,” wrote Orwell, “that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought, that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc, should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words.”

This brings me to global warming. The term occurs frequently in Al Gore’s 1992 book, Earth in the Balance (I stopped counting at 81 times). But when Mr. Gore stood beside the attorneys general there was not even a nostalgic reference to global warming. It has passed out of the memory tubes governed by Newspeak.

    The global warming brand had to change and be dropped because it became too easy to demonstrate what complete exaggerated BS it was . What they call it doesn’t matter it’s just a brand to make money and swindle tax payers out of $$billions . GREEN GRAND THEFT will be it’s historic name .

    Global warming is the best possible thing for the planet inhabitants , plants ,forests ,sea creatures and even those lovely polar bears . Won’t the fish be happy with a bit more room ? After all the Chinese keep building new islands. Guess they haven’t got the memo those islands are all going to sink even if those are military grade runways getting installed . Silly Chinese what are they thinking.

    Did the AG lobby group invite AL Gore or did AL Gore invite them ? The E mails will show how this dog and pony show got on the stage together . How is it that a clique of AG’s support allegations of fraud with AL Gore as front man ? How many if any of these AG’s had government clearance to act as lobbyist’s ?
    $$ Billions in defaulting loans and loan guarantees to the clean power industry
    and AG’s lobbying for them ? What is this nonsense ? When did the government know tax payers were going to be ripped off for billions and when did they stop being a cash dispensing machine ?
    How much was handed out by the federal government in the past 8 years to this industry of corporate welfare ?
    $ 3 billion -$ 4 Billion ? More ? How many schools could have been built ?

    This massive abuse of tax payers must end .
