Today, as I am sure you’re aware, marks Blog Action Day. Allow me to warn you that if you are reading this expecting a hippie love-in all about the environment you’re going to be sadly disappointed. I have no desire to be part of Blog Action Day, in fact I am intentionally boycotting it. Of course you might say that by even mentioning those three words I’m part of it, which is why I gave serious thought to ignoring the whole thing, blogging about some other topic and pretending the day didn’t exist. As I’m too lazy to think up another topic, I changed my mind.
What gets me about Blog Action day is how insanely transparent it is. Yes, I do know the premise is about “blog power”, and will be an annual event, but surely I cannot be the only one to notice the timing of this fits much too neatly into this move to mobilise young people in support of the Climate Change “Crisis” myth?
On the one hand, it being the first year, the big drive behind this could be simply because it’s a new thing, on the other hand it could be because this year they’re pushing the eco-warrior agenda, and we may see that momentum drop off next year. Or worse yet, be an excuse to push yet more left-wing propoganda.
Despite what some may think, the blogosphere is not just a playground for the far left. There are plenty of reasonable, rational political blogs out there. Maybe one of them will use today to point out to the sheep that the bandwagon that they’ve jumped on only has three wheels. And no brakes.
I, for one, am tired of proving that man-made Global Warming (which I “lovingly” refer to as the Climate Change “Crisis” myth/theory) is still a theory. Those who take it as proven stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the real Inconvenient Truth; Global Warming is a naturally occuring cycle, one that has occured throughout the history of this planet. This is a FACT. Of course it is also a fact that mankind contributes to this. The fact nobody has been able to quantify conclusively how much mankind contributes is what makes it a theory.
Perhaps it’s silly of me to expect facts from a group who were so busy talking up the bogus Nobel Prize for Al Gore, they “conveniently” overlooked the fact that a UK judge ruled on nine (count them) Inconvenient Untruths. Of course this ruling has been criticised by some who also failed to notice a report by a US University study showing record ice cap growth in Antartica this year. Someone had better tell those ice caps that they are supposed to be melting. Oops.
