[Editor’s note: This article appeared as a letter-to-the-editor in The Franklin Times, September 1, 2016, in response to a letter by Citizens' Climate Lobby, which was asking for members.]
I have never heard the promoters of global warming, now called climate change, answer three fundamental questions. (1) When was the last time that the climate was not changing? (2) What is the ideal climate? (3) How do we know that it is the ideal climate?
Perhaps Citizens’ Climate Lobby can answer these questions. If it does not know the answers to these questions, how will it know that it has achieved its goal of defeating climate change?
In the 1970s to the mid 1980s, the big climate fear was that the planet was entering another ice age. Then in the late 1980s, the big climate fear became global warming. Imagine that, a complete turn around in the climate within a few years. Now to cover themselves from any warming or cooling, they now use “climate change.” Also, the raw data show that the planet has been cooling for at least 15 or 20 years. Consequently, the government adjusts the raw data to continue to show warming.
Whether the promoters of climate change know it or not, the real goal of the climate change movement is to transfer ever more wealth and power from the common folk to the rich and powerful.
