In 1980, Ronald Reagan set about to implement free-enterprise economic policies to restart the world's most powerful economic engine after the Democrat-induced recession brought our country to a near stop. In addition to those policies, Reagan attempted to unshackle the economy from "unjust, oppressive and impolitic" regulations, and the net result was the longest and strongest sustained period of economic growth in U.S. history.
One of the regulatory giants Reagan reined in was the Environmental Protection Agency. Reagan was not an opponent of sound policies to encourage environmental conservation and preservation. In fact, he was an outdoorsman at heart and declared, "Preservation of our environment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, it's common sense." But he was a staunch foe of regulatory abuse as outlined in his Economic Bill of Rights.
But since Reagan’s time, the EPA has swelled into a major, powerful bureaucracy that seeks to control every aspect of our lives, even down to how much water we’re allowed to flush. While regulation of toilet water and light bulbs may seem harmless enough, the EPA mandates associated with the so-called "climate change" agenda are anything but harmless. Recall that "climate change" was formerly referred to as "global warming," for much the same reason that "progressive" was formally referred to as "liberal" — deceptive marketing to hide a very bad agenda.
Recall, too, that the grand master of the modern enviro-fascist movement was Al Gore, who launched these hot-air histrionics with his 1992 book, "Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit." Since then, Gore has amassed a fortune through his shamelessly unscientific bull and subsequent "green" investments, not to mention the $500 million sale of his Current TV network interest to Al Jazeera in 2013.
Of course Gore’s fear tactics have produced a large and growing cult of earth-worshiping robots who are falling for all the nonsense. Little do they know that Gore’s real agenda was nothing more than to use the environment as cover for socialist economic control of our lives.
Christopher Horner, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, aptly described Gore as “green on the outside, red to the core,” noting that his environmental concerns “are a thinly veiled subterfuge for his socialist agenda.” In other words, Gore is a watermelon. Green on the outside, red on the inside.
Since Gore laid the foundation for this lie, Barack Obama and the current leaders of his Socialist Democratic Party have masterfully used "Climate Change" to their advantage. They insist that warming, cooling, drenching, drying and all other normal weather activity is the direct result of man-made carbon dioxide emissions, which must be regulated. No matter that their claims are untrue.
Accordingly, in his Earth Day message this week, Obama (who used up about 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to fly to Florida for Earth Day) declared, "Climate change can no longer be denied or ignored. ... 2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record." But in fact, that claim is also a lie — and you can read why here. Of course, Obama is a very accomplished liar. And by the way, his little jaunt to Florida as a "champion of climate change" emitted 5 times the amount of CO2 in one day than the average American emits in an entire year. Sure, he's really pro-environment.
What disturbs me the most is that Obama refers to climate change as the biggest, most immediate threat to our world today. Really? How about asking the Christians being systematically murdered by Islamo-fascists on a daily basis what they’d say the threat is. A threat which, by the way, we all face.
Please people, stop falling for this climate change “crisis” hoax. It’s nothing but a smokescreen to scare you into giving up your freedoms so the government can tell you how to live while taxing the life out of you. Now that’s a crisis.
