Global warming, or climate change as they like to call it now, is a religion. It requires strict faith that science knows what it’s talking about. It requires scientists to strictly adhere to climate change orthodoxy or risk having ones reputation tarnished as a heretic. Make no mistake, global warming/climate change does require extreme faith. It requires one to believe in the dire prophecies of scientists, it requires one to believe that the climate scientists have it right and cannot possibly be wrong. It’s little different than my Christian faith, which requires me to believe that scriptures are accurate and correct. Between global warming, evolution and big bang, science has become a religion that requires strict faith absence any facts. It has become that which it claims to abhor.
Johnny Ball is the latest heretic in the scientific world. Ball has the audacity to question climate change. Those in Britain may remember Ball as he had a long running scientific television program. Ball has criticized global warming/climate change theory and has pointed out that it is absurdly expensive to implement various measures aimed at reducing carbon, which has not been proven to be a problem. As a result, Ball has been the victim of attacks online, reduced bookings and other sinister campaigns against his name. He is a heretic in the scientific world for daring to question the conclusions of climate scientists.
Ball is one of hundreds who have been condemned as heretics in the scientific world. Those who outed the scientists who manipulated data at East Anglia and the UN have been condemned as heretics. The data manipulators were given a pass, after all they care so very much about ‘saving’ Earth. Why, they just manipulated data for the good of the world. Those who outed them are evil, they want to destroy the Earth and must have some wicked affiliation with business. If the business is big oil, all the better.
This is how science operates today. Disagreement and questioning isn’t tolerated in the world of climate change. Oh sure, climate scientists are free to question when the disaster will strike and they’re free to question and debate what can save Earth. They can question so long as the ultimate conclusion reached is that man is responsible for warming the Earth and that warming is ‘dangerous’. Any other conclusion reached is cause for a charge of heresy.
Science used to be a field where questioning conclusions was acceptable. There used to be very few absolutes, every conclusion was open to questioning and proving wrong. But in the last century science has become a very rigid field, at least in three areas that just happen to be areas that liberals adore. One is not free to question evolution. It is an absolute fact and any questioning of it is proof that one isn’t a scientist. This despite the fact that there isn’t any actual evidence of evolution, just connections that science assumes proof. The same can be said for big bang. Climate change is another. Science has become religion and unfortunately since the 50′s many Americans were willing to believe the scientists just because they’re scientists.
For those terribly concerned about global warming there is a man made fix to the problem. We are told a small scale nuclear war could reverse the non-existent global warming that we are supposed to fear so much. I think left-wing scientists should run with this information. ‘Nuclear war to save the planet’ ought to be the new global warming slogan. It’s no more absurd than listening to scientists claim that the oceans will rise up and devour New York City or that big winter snow storms are proof of global warming.
The Earth isn’t warming, in fact it hasn’t gotten any warmer since the 90′s. I say this as a global warming heretic though, so take it with a grain of sand. There is a growing heretical movement in the world that sees through the madness coming from science today. There are more and more people who realize that these scientists are in bed with politicians and governments and are working together to take power away from the people. Global warming is a farce and its turning science into a worldwide joke. That science has heretics and that it treats those who question with contempt ought to bother all of us.
