The global warming religious cult has recently completed their 100,000-strong protest in New York City. I would like to protest the hypocrisy of the protesters, all of whom arrived in New York by bus, car, jet, or in the case of the celebrity participants, private jets and limousines.
I wonder how much coal and oil was used for their gathering and how much garbage they left in their wake. I would imagine they all live in homes with electricity and running water, too, all of which is produced by burning the coal and oil they hate so much. I could at least respect their beliefs if they lived in cabins in the woods, grew their own food and fetched water from a nearby stream, but instead they enjoy the same benefits of a modern society as we global warming deniers.
As far as GW being "settled science," it is anything but. After all, the "climate scientists" on government grants, paid to prove GW is human caused, have never explained how the earth recovered from the last ice age without humans around burning fossil fuels. Or why just a couple of decades ago Time magazine featured a cover proclaiming the coming of a new ice age. And who can forget the Climate Research Unit in England faking data to account for a disturbing lack of warming? But the science is settled and the debate is over?

Global warming, or climate change, as they are now forced to call it, has never been about saving the world. It is about control by those who seek power and those with a messianic complex, like Al Gore, who imagine themselves humanity's saviors. They would see us return to an era before fossil fuels and drastically reduce the human population in the name of a problem that does not exists. It is interesting to note too that most of the prophets of GW, from Al Gore and the U.N. bureaucrats to numerous Hollywood celebrities, continue to live lives of luxury and consume more of the earths resources than countless ordinary Americans. According to them, it is the rest of us that must make all the sacrifices and bear all the burdens of reducing the earth's temperature. Maybe the protesters should protest that.
