Science is all about testing hypotheses with real-world data.  ”Climate change” is not science.  It started as an outright scam, an alarmist creed field-tested through various incarnations that sounded scary and indicted human activity, for the purpose of pulling down bigger research grants.  Version 1.0, the “new Ice Age” global cooling scare of the Seventies, had the most actual science associated with it – we might indeed be heading into a new Ice Age – but it couldn’t be tied to human activity, and it was too difficult to frighten people in most of the Western world with the image of a gradual temperature reduction.  ”Global warming,” in which smokestacks people could easily see were going to rip open the ozone layer and wipe out coastal cities with apocalyptic floods, sold better, but alas it was too specific, too easily disproved… so we got “climate change,” and when it turned out the climate hasn’t really been changing much over the past two decades, the final devolution to “climate disruption” was rolled out this year.  ”Climate disruption” is perfect, because it’s literally impossible to disprove – no matter what happens, even if nothing very much happens, the con artists can claim human industry is severely disrupting the ordinary processes of nature.

POLL: Is Global Warming junk science with a political agenda or is it real?

Along the way, “climate change” metastasized into a malignant intellectual cancer, as it became infused with big-dollar politics.  Socialist politicians realized it was the perfect vehicle for unlimited centralized power.  Oppose their agenda and you want to murder the Earth!

“Climate change” also provides an intellectual framework for hysterical fantasy, because its adherents – including a number of heavily credentialed scientists – are willing to either actively or passively endorse all sorts of alarmist nonsense pumped out by their pop-culture allies.  They justify this by saying that it’s important to “raise awareness,” so even the most absurd, anti-scientific doomsday horror story is defensible.  This, again, is contrary to the principles of science, which relies upon clarity and honesty.  Committed scientists don’t look at some Hollywood director’s pile of 99 percent absurd claptrap, shrug, and say “What the heck, close enough… as long as it gets people talking about global warming, it’s all good.”

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
