First, some rare sanity – or pressure, more like – has seen NHS Devon reverse its decision not to carry out routine procedures like cataract and hernia operations on smokers who don’t stop and overweight people who don’t lose weight. Now on to the post…
Sometimes it seems like no lie is too big – if they think they can get away with it – to further the spread of socialism. Take this subject on which the “science is settled.” But wait a moment; what’s this? No Proof of Man-Made Climate Change, Says Greenpeace Co-founder.
Patrick Moore (not the monocled moon-gazer) told the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee,
There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years.
He co-founded Greenpeace in 1971, but left in 1986 after it made what he described as a “sharp turn to the political left ” and began espousing policies he could not longer support, though opposition to global warming was not then among them.
“Climate change was not an issue when I abandoned Greenpeace, but it certainly is now,” Moore said. But increases in the earth’s surface and atmospheric temperatures are nothing new, he reminded the senators, as he noted little correlation between increases in carbon dioxide emissions and a heating of the planet. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he noted, has declared it “extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming trend since the mid-20th century. “
“‘Extremely likely’ is not a scientific term but rather a judgment as in a court of law,” Moore said. “The IPCC defines ‘extremely likely’ as a ’95-100% probability.’ But upon further examination it is clear that these numbers are not the result of any mathematical calculation or statistical analysis. They have been ‘invented’ as a construct within the IPCC report to express ‘expert judgment’, as determined by the IPCC contributors.” Projections based on “sophisticated computer models” have led to warnings of dire consequences from anticipated increases in temperatures worldwide, Moore said. The historical record suggests otherwise, he argued.
The piece goes into long-ages-speak, but more on that later.
The point of this post is that, these days, only the information used to support a cause is made widespread, through the media, schools and universities and what politicians are told by their specially chosen “advisors” and taxpayer-funded fake charities. The inconvenient evidence which points to the opposite is swept under the carpet.
With strict legislation on environmental matters, the powers that be can modify behaviour, increase taxation, corral the population into towns and cities and intensify global governance.
We more-or-less see the same happening in many other areas, such as the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Zimbabwe has just become the 180th party to sign up to its totalitarian ideals which national governments – or what remains of them – seem duty-bound to adopt.
Smoking bans are increasing in intensity all over the world because “the science is settled” that secondhand smoke is dangerous, yet there is no proof,
A large-scale study found no clear link between secondhand smoke and lung cancer.
You don’t need proof. You just need those fake charities and cherry-picked statistics from certain “studies” and complicit media and politicians unable to think for themselves and slowly emerges the society O’Brien tells Smith about in Nineteen Eighty-Four: “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”
If the evidence doesn’t fit, it is rejected, whether scientific studies or social studies. In order for socialism to conquer all, religion has to be defeated. As Lenin said, “Our programme necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism.”
‘Faith schools‘ are dramatically overrepresented among the best performers, but this cannot possibly be down to faith, can it?
Faith schools have repeatedly claimed that they get better results because of their strong religious ethos, high levels of pastoral assistance and support from churchgoing families.
But the disclosure is likely to renew the debate over the admissions policies used by faith schools.
The British Humanist Association has warned that schools are “unrepresentative” of their local communities, with large numbers of middle-class families conveniently finding God to secure places for their children.
Richy Thompson, BHA campaigns officer, said its own research had shown that top performing faith schools were “less inclusive” than their communities, particularly Catholic and Jewish schools.
The militant atheists/humanists/secularists have a prior commitment to a one size fits all ‘Utopia’ where the only belief system allowed is their own, so they must attack all other beliefs.
In the comments, “deolenitpikka” writes:
Faith seems to work. If any other intervention were as effective as faith in improving outcomes in both education and health, it would be promoted by government policy.
I said I would mention long ages. The Theory of Evolution is another fallacy based on false logic and lack of evidence. It has been in our consciousness for so long that it is considered that the “science is settled” but there isn’t a shred of evidence to prove that non-living chemicals formed the beginnings of life and that it therefore took billions of years to evolve into all the different animals and plants and people that have ever lived.
It is part of the indoctrination that aims to “teach” that we are simply evolved pond slime. It is easier to control people when they are led to believe this. I know; some people say that religion controls its followers and that is also usually true, but faith as outlined in the Gospels leads to freedom and strength. This is one reason socialist regimes always attack religion.
When religion and the family are destroyed, that leaves the State as the highest authority and our surrogate parent.
