"The Tea Party Would Rather Burn Than Submit To Washington"

That's the actual headline of a Washington Post op-ed by Richard Cohen. He may not have written it but it sums up his point...stupid "Tea Party" people won't accept reality when it comes to global warming because they are stupid and hate smart people.

My own eyes show rising ocean levels. They show the Arctic ice cap shrinking. They show massive beach erosion, homes toppling into the sea and meteorological records indicating steadily increasing temperatures. The Earth, our dear little planet, just had the hottest May on record.

...

Politics, not science, may firm up both sides of the debate. A Pew Research Center poll last November found that 67 percent of Americans think the planet is indisputably getting warmer. Among Democrats and Democratic leaners, however, the figure is 84 percent, but among tea party types it’s 25 percent. Maybe more to the point, only 9 percent of tea party members think “human activity” has contributed to global warming. For their own sake, they ought to get out of the sun.

Huh, I thought we just went through the coldest winter in the history of history and it killed the economy.

A few fun facts I'm sure you are already familiar with...despite dire predictions of an ice free arctic, ice coverage is the same as it's been for 30 years. The US, far from being the worst climate offender (as Cohen and his co-cultists seem to imagine us) actually met the carbon reductions goals of the holy Kyoto Protocols. In fact, we were the only major country to do so.

Oh, and no matter what Cohen's eyes see, there's been NO WARMING FOR OVER 17 YEARS.

I find it amusing that a guy who is attacking conservatives for living in their own version of reality is relying on polling as some sort of evidence for "climate change". What if there were a poll showing the vast majority of people don't believe in "climate change"? Would that alter the "science" or would he suddenly not care about polling? So it's "science, not opinion" that matters unless the science is inconvient for the cultists, then it's all personal observation and opinion polls.

Heads they win, tails you lose.

A handy rule of thumb...want to know what liberals really believe? Watch what they accuse conservatives of. Projection is their default setting.

But Cohen, or more likely his headline writer, does accurately encapsulate the purpose of "climate change" hysteria...power. They want you to bow down to the central planners in D.C. That's the only thing they care about.
