Well, yeah, it is kinda like racism. Liberals are constantly yammering on about it, ascribing it to everything, but are still rather unsure of the concept, and are often the worst offenders. Of course, that’s not what Ahmed Shihab-Eldin at the HuffPo means
Climate change is kind of like racism. Nobody really wants to talk about it, but it is as critical as it is constructive that we have that conversation now. Whether politicians, pundits or polls bring it up or not, like racism, we all know climate change is real. We all know it threatens our peace, security and the very unity of these United States of America.
Good grief. Warmists never stop talking about it, but they themselves refuse to actually make the changes in their own lives to Do Something about it. Right now, many, many Warmists in the Northeast are experiencing long days of Sandy enforced Earth Hours, and aren’t markedly enjoying it. In fact, many are pitching hissy fits as they are forced to live pre-electric lives.
Warmists should be reveling in the reduced CO2 output and doing their part to stop the planet from boiling as they sit in the dark (hey, Warmists, candles are bad for climate change!), can’t waste precious water while they are unable to flush the toilet and take showers, have little petrol to drive around, and aren’t seeing electricity disappear as “vampire electricity”. Where’s the love from Warmists for living the outcome of what their hotcoldwetdry legislation would bring about?
Still, perhaps because we need it, we are gifted sharp reminders.
“My party is full of racists,” Colin Powell’s former chief of staff, Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson reminded us just the other day, “the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character… and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that’s despicable.”
What may be more despicable than racism in this context is denying its existence. Just like those who deny our climate is changing, and that we, with our drills and in our drivers seats, are directly contributing to the change.
First, Colin Powell has become a hysterical fool. Second, when did “drills” become bad for Hotcoldwetdy? Is this fool referring to the type that is a tool? That’s a new one to add to the list. Anyhow, if climate change is like racism, and the drivers seat is bad, can we get all you Warmists to pledge to never take fossil fueled travel from now on?
When it comes to climate change, like Romney, we could all use some humility and a willingness to learn more about the challenges we face. After all, we share this planet, and its natural resources with many species. Climate change does not just alter the patterns of diseases in humans, it has the power to disrupt the delicate balance of our ecosystem, which we are all mutually dependent on for survival.
No, what Warmists need to do is to move away from their 20 year notion of spreading awareness, and show us the way by changing their own lives. Because the rest of us who live in Reality Land refuse to do so, nor let you wackjobs pass legislation, because the climate is always changing. Right now the Earth is in a long term warm period, which followed a cool period, with a period that was warmer than today before that, then a cool period, then a much warmer period, and so forth. During this warm period we’ve seen short term climates occur: hotter than today in the 30′s, cool from the 40′s-70′s, a warm period from 1980-1997, then a stagnant period since. Anecdotal evidence from a storm like Sandy is not scientific proof that Mankind is changing the climate.
