The more time goes by, the more it becomes apparent that radical environmentalism is a religion that is losing touch with reality.
Realizing that the earth has not been warming, really, since the beginning of the century, global warming alarmists have pivoted to “climate change.” Increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, caused by human activity, is causing more destructive hurricanes, droughts, tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and who knows what else.
The problem is that in so doing, they are abandoning their scientific foundation. While the science of global warming is questionable, there are still a large number of scientists who believe that human activity is causing increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which in turn causes slight increases in global temperatures. However, no significant number of scientists are providing any coherent rationale for a link between slight variations in atmospheric CO2 levels and destructive weather. That idea is one that was invented in the minds of global warming alarmists.
So, alarmists, which is it? Is it global warming, where you have a so-called consensus of 52% of climate scientists? Or is it climate change, which is faith-based? Now that the data is in that there has been no global warming in the past twelve to fourteen years, this is a real toughie.
