In April 2004, in Maine, the Sierra Club and the Maine Council of Churches kicked off a huge "global warming" promotion when the film "The Day After Tomorrow" came out. The movie depicts global disaster caused by "manmade global warming." Fear sells products. And that entire spring and summer the Sierra Club covered both coasts with fear of what was about to come about because of "global warming."
"This movie distorts global warming, obviously," admitted Maureen Drouin, northeast regional representative of the Sierra Club. "It's a disaster movie. But we also feel that the Bush administration is distorting the science on global warming."' Even if she had been right about the Bush Administration (and there is no evidence to show that), two wrongs do not make a right. But that's what the Warmers do. They distort, deceive, and spread fear to promote their agenda.
Professor Jon Reisman of the University of Maine at Machias carefully observed the Warmers during that summer of high promotion. He concluded that they used the scare film "The Day After Tomorrow" to kick off a campaign of fear and that these groups tacitly tie the catastrophes depicted in the film to their claims about the atmosphere and the weather. He said that their every claim was strained and contrived. Good conclusion, I'd say.
Not one thing even close has occurred over the last seven years that the Warmers claimed that summer would happen. Simply put: More balderdash.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has recently chimed in, saying the planet is heating up and humans are a cause of that heating.
"Bye-bye, nomination," Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday on his radio talk show after playing a clip of Romney's "global warming" remark. "Another one down. We're in the midst here of discovering that this is all a hoax. The last year has established that the whole premise of man-made global warming is a hoax, and we still have presidential candidates buying the hoax."
The Club for Growth also criticized Romney in a recent report. "Governor Romney's regulatory record as governor contains some flaws," the report said, "including a significant one: his support of 'global warming' policies."
Every single "global warming" prediction has been wrong and has failed to come true since the Freezers switched to being Warmers back in the 1980s. Now, of course, due to a public relations firm's advice to the Democrats for the 2006 mid-term election, they are "Climate Changers" - as if the climate doesn't vary and change from year to year everywhere.
You have to be aware of people who claim they believe these tactics, because they are either dumber than rhubard lettuce or they are in on the scam.
Why do honest people still believe in global warming?
