Global Warming Enhanced by Democracy?

Global Warming China

According to UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres, Global Warming must be enhanced by Democracy since Communist China is “doing it right” in the fight against Climate Change. Figueres seems to be basing her opinion on the fact that Chinese political leaders are not constrained by things like congressional oversight and the will of the people. What Americans like to call Liberty and Freedom are evidently very detrimental to the fight against technological, social and societal progress, more commonly known as the Green Movement/Climate Change Hoax.

Figueres seems to be completely unaware that China beat the U.S. in total yearly Co2 production about six years ago, which says nothing of the real problem of record levels of air pollutants coming out of China. More importantly, Co2 is not a “dangerous gas” which harms the environment. In fact, a recent NASA study showed that Co2 in the upper atmosphere does far more to reflect heat away from the Earth, than it does to hold heat in; completely debunking the key argument of the Green Movement against the use of hydrocarbons as cheap fuel.

The primary thrust of people like Figueres seems to be a vast and detrimental curtailing of global economic viability: Underdeveloped nations are discouraged from seeking their own energy independence by drilling for oil or mining for coal. Meanwhile, well developed nations like America are continually chastised for seeking to harness the vast stores of natural resources available to them in their own lands. Complex and ever-growing taxation schemes – cleverly designed to centralize power and crush whole economies – are offered as the “only” solutions possible. Furthermore, scientists and knowledgeable citizens who might question the validity of the Climate Change gurus’ hue & cry, are immediately accused of collusion, stupidity and heresy against the Church of Global Warmists.

Global Warming Enhanced By Democracy?

Democracy, Freedom and Liberty are said to enhance global warming, because those ideas are designed to free all people from the tyranny of centralized power. The entire Climate Change Hoax is a madly clever scheme to empower and enrich an Elitist Few, who know very well that changing Capitalist economies to Socialist economies – which is an absolute necessity for centralized Global authority – can only be accomplished if the perceived threat means virtually an end to life as it is currently known.

Figueres, and the people crafting the arguments, look at Communist China as a shining beacon of authoritarian domination by threat of military force. Rule by caveat and fiat are repugnant to a free people; especially those who live in Democratic Republics like the United States. Americans have a long list of Rights, enshrined within the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, granting the individual citizen protections, checks and balances against the Government.

Countries like China have no such protections for their citizens. The masses have no say, no prospects for personally improving their lot and no hopes for a brighter future, ever. That kind of political structure is what people like Figueres want for the whole world. Global Warming is just the latest, best effort of that particular ilk to achieve their lofty goals. War was tried a few times, but that tends to wake the sleeping giants and the Globalists repeatedly lose.

Democracy doesn’t so much enhance global warming, as it curtails efforts to centralize political power. So it should come as no surprise that a high ranking UN official says China is “doing it right.”

    I don’t claim to be a climate scientist and so enter any discussion of scientific details with trepidation. However, it seems that the below statement does not represent what the NASA paper says, “In fact, a recent NASA study showed that Co2 in the upper atmosphere does far more to reflect heat away from the Earth, than it does to hold heat in; completely debunking the key argument of the Green Movement against the use of hydrocarbons as cheap fuel.” The study’s press release says, “Data from NASA’s Terra satellite shows that when the climate warms, Earth’s atmosphere is apparently more efficient at releasing energy to space than models used to forecast climate change have been programmed to “believe.” … Applied to long-term climate change, the research might indicate that the climate is less sensitive to warming due to increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere than climate modelers have theorized.” That’s good — a bit of a reprieve! However, it does not say that there is no energy imbalance at all — that indeed would upend global warming theory, and 190 years of physics and observations. Our energy imbalance is about 0.85 watts per meter squared according to NASA ( http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/environment/earth_energy.html ). Added over the whole earth that makes for some warming. Believe me, I would love it if global warming were a huge hoax to make Al Gore, the UN, and others rich. However, I doubt it. Unfortunately for my kids — not me, I’m over 50. Thanks.

    Tony. Thanks for the comment. We can only hope and pray that China becomes nicer to the environment. China is the biggest polluter in recorded history.

    As for NASA and their findings on Co2; whose intelligence is being insulted?

    Wow. Climate change denial dressed up as a defense of freedom. I believe in freedom, democracy, and capitalism. But I don’t have to close my eyes at the same time. In fact, if we don’t address climate change in a democratic and capitalist way, authoritarian regimes like China get a technological and social advantage. And, please, don’t insult the reader’s intelligence by “citing” NASA studies that purportedly “debunk” 190 year old science on the greenhouse effect (see, Joseph Fourier 1824, Svante Arrhenius 1896). Thanks.

      Always amusing that global warmists readily accept, without question, an scientific study that supports their beliefs and ridicules anyone that doesn’t buy in – even when the study is exposed as misleading – yet, in the same breath, they will dismiss, out of hand, any scientific data that doesn’t support their beliefs.

      If one claims to have faith in the accuracy of scientific data, then one must either accept it across the board – even when it doesn’t support a theory – or one must accept that it is all subject to question.

      The Global warming mantra is: We will believe whatever we want, when we want; and we reserve the right to believe the opposite at any time if it suites us.

      If the temperatures are unusually high, it’s global warming; if the temperatures are unusually low, it’s global warming;if the temperatures barely change, it’s because the period over which they were measured is too short to prove anything.

      There’s a convenient nonsense answer for every situation. Meanwhile, governments, corporations and the UN are all stealing everyone’s money and lining their pockets in the name of global warming (or “climate change” when it sounds better).

      Do you know how much money Al Gore has made from the whole global warming scam, Tony?
