Confess Your Climate Sins

NBC Climate Confessions

With Climate Change Derangement Syndrome (CCDS) in full effect it is funny how the mainstream media has gone all out to portray the crisis with religious fervor.  The latest example is NBC News  Climate Confessions website:

This is a perfect example of who the CCDS people treat Climate change as religion.  There are and have been varying divisive issues we have had in this country but Climate Change is special.  We have never required dogmatic belief in an unproven belief like we do with Climate Change.

The current modus operandi of the left is to state that man-made Climate Change is settled science and you have to be a knuckle-dragging dope to believe otherwise.   The problem with this tactic is this is it is more analogous to religion than science.  If you ask the average person at a climate change rally their belief about Climate Change is far greater than their understanding.

What should be obvious is that most the passionate Climate Change advocates  are like religious leaders and their followers are like the flock.  Some of the flock are very passionate but most are passionate only when a group-think frenzy breaks out (campus rallies, earth day, mass protests, etc.).  The least passionate will forget about Climate Change when separated from  group-think and go back to the iPhones, driving for pleasure, air conditioning, cheeseburgers and mass consumerism.

What is most disturbing is the Climate Change scientists who are leading this hysteria.  I concede without hesitation that these scientists are far more knowledgeable in the field than I.  My problem is that some are pitching their theories and projections that are more likely to come than not based on their inaccuracies in decades past.   I also do not like the fact that the settled science Climate Change scientists do not seem to accept counter-theories from respected scientists with opposing views.

I’m always suspicious of somebody in any field who says they have all the answers or can accurately predict future events with a level of certainty.  If we were to have listened to the experts throughout the past the was flat, was the center of the known world, and the sun revolved around the earth.  Okay, that was way back in the old days, we pretty much get things right today don’t we?  Nope, it was only in 1999 that we figured out that the universe was not only moving and expanding but doing so rapidly. Perhaps this read might be of interest:

So really, can we put the brakes on the Climate Change Derangement Syndrome? I’m not saying that man-made Climate Change isn’t a possibility or probability but don’t tell me we are doomed when you have told me that we are when you have been wrong so many times before.
