Global Warming Is Frozen Over
by Phyllis Schlafly

Whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow on February 2, there's no denying that January put into a deep freeze the claims of crisis by global warming alarmists. Frigid temperatures destroyed fruit and coral in Florida, and snow fell on Al Gore's palatial home in normally warmer Tennessee.

The 20,000 delegates and journalists who gathered in Copenhagen to discuss climate change had to spend some of their energy hiding their embarrassment about the revelation of emails and documents from the Climate Research Unit, which is an official collaborator of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Those disclosures told the world about some scientists' willingness to suppress climate-change data and rig the process in order to pretend there is consensus among scientists about global warming, to ostracize contrary views, and to promote their globalist agenda.

Obama's State of the Union demand for cap-and-trade legislation fell on deaf ears. Maybe that's because Obama is on record as promising that U.S. emissions in 2050 will be reduced to our 1910 level of emissions, when we had a population of 92 million.

Such a massive reduction in our energy use would mean lowering our standard of living to 19th century levels. The only Republican Senator willing to work with the Democrats on climate change legislation, Lindsey Graham, admitted that "the cap-and-trade bills in the House and Senate are going nowhere."

Even the New York Times admitted that "prospects grew dimmer" for the global warming advocates because Scott Brown repudiated cap-and-trade in his winning campaign in Massachusetts. Some incumbents who voted for the House bill find that challengers are scoring points with the public by attacking that vote.

January ended with a cold blast reportedly from Osama bin Laden blaming the United States for not halting what he called "the global warming crisis" and for failing to sign the Kyoto Protocol. He wants to punish us by getting the global economy to abandon the U.S. dollar.

What was to have been the baptism of the major nations into the religion of global warming in Copenhagen, Denmark, turned out to be a dry run. President Obama came and left empty handed, Communist China refused to limit emissions, and the Third World dictators didn't get the $100 billion handouts they expected.

At the close of the Copenhagen confab, Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus made this same point about global warming. "I'm convinced that after years of studying the phenomenon," he said, "global warming is not a matter of temperature. Global warming is a new religion, a religion of climate change. . . .

"This religion tells us that people are responsible for very small increases in temperatures, and they should be punished. . . . I'm absolutely convinced that the very small global warming we are experiencing is the result of natural causes. It's a cyclical phenomenon in the history of the Earth.

"The role of man is very small, almost negligible. Politicians, their fellow travelers, and the media understood that this is a good topic to take on, because talking about the world in the years 2050, 2080, and 2200 is an excellent way to escape from current reality."

President Klaus sent a message to the world: Do not dictate to humanity how to live based on an "irrational ideology." Man's natural ingenuity can create new technologies that will lessen any impact that mankind has on the planet's environment.

Vaclav Klaus concluded: "I lived in a Communist world where politicians told us what to do. I don't think politicians or presidents should tell business what to do. That is always a mistake."

Nevertheless the propaganda continues. A father's letter to the editor of the Education Reporter described what his 5th-grade daughter Lily, at Three Oaks Elementary, Fort Myers, Florida, said she had learned in school. "I would rather just shoot myself in the head because it would be a less painful death than to suffer and die from global warming."

Thousands of public school students have been shown Al Gore's propaganda movie "An Inconvenient Truth." Another movie called "The Story of Stuff" is also shown in classrooms to teach students the evils of human consumption.

The movie projects a very negative view of capitalism and paints human use of natural resources as "exploitation," which is supposed to be synonymous with trashing the planet. The movie accuses us of chopping down the trees, blowing up mountains to get the metals inside, using up all the water, and wiping out the animals.

The main cause of unemployment and poverty is the lack of enough energy. Rather than expanding government to limit energy, we should be increasing the use of energy to eradicate hardship.

I definitely agree that moderation is a good idea. But what is being brought to the table is not a push toward moderation but to reframe a person's thinking so that they put the earth above human life. Don't forget that humans are the crowning of God's creation and we were told to subdue the earth. Our kids are going to school and being brainwashed with fear tactics, thinking that the earth is going to burn up because of the car that mommy and daddy drive! One volcanic eruption emits more harmful gases into the atmosphere than our cars do! Keep your perspective and buy into the agenda. Be discerning.

I don't understand this anti-planet stand of many Christains. I don't know if humans are causing global warming are not, the planet is warming up. Here in St. louis we have seen decreasing in decade snow fall for the last 40 years. While people talk about how cold it has been in the US, greenland and the arctic have had one of the warmest season on record. People forget that global warming is just that GLOBAL not local!

I don't really follow your thought pattern here. But I will say that, a lot of Christians I know are uncomfortable with sustainable, people- & earth-healthy solutions, because they require change and sacrifice. A person might say, "This takes away my freedom!" But what they mean is, "I should be able to use up as many resources as I want and can afford, regardless of the effect it has on other people and the earth that we all share and depend on for life."

Because this is not about whether it is true or is about gaining power and money by taking away from us and our freedom.

I cannot understand why so many well-meaning Christianity are so intent on disproving global warming. It might be happening, it might not. In any case, what is wrong with being good stewards of the earth God gave us? After all, we depend on the resources of our planet for survival. What is wrong with using moderation when consuming the limited resources of our planet, and where possible, finding alternatives that are sustainable and healthier for all of us.

Destruction of natural resources

I am no fan of Al Gore or the global warming craze, but the next to the last paragraph totally describes what is happening in my area. They are cutting down every tree they can get their hands on and building useless shopping centers and homes no one wants to buy. They are killing all the wildlife by shooting them or running them out into the roads where they get slaughtered by the hundreds every week and left to rot on the sides of our roads. The place is a charnel house!! So I think some of the claims are correct!!
