Climate-change alarmists are continuing to burst using failed science | Letter

This is a clear rebuttal to Rachel Molloy’s article in the Dec. 16, 2016 edition of the Redmond Reporter titled, “Washington back yards bursting with climate change.”

From just one of many experts, Dr. Roy Spencer, a climatologist, author and former NASA scientist who says that “global warming” refers to the global-average temperature increase that has been observed over the last 100 years or more. But to many politicians and the public, the term carries the implication that mankind is responsible for that warming.

I would bluntly add that the implication can be defined as an elitist socialist and/or Marxist know better attitude that says the science is settled, so don’t ask any more questions and get out of our leftist church’s way. That is what Molloy has attempted to do, but clearly failed while using the usual assumptions, conjectures, speculations and suppositions. Just as all climate-alarmist articles have, and will have in the future.

Like socialism, there are only two types of people who can afford to believe in climate change: those who have everything and those who have nothing. Advocates of empirical science must remain steadfast in the face of growing dogmatic and political tomfoolery. In time climate change, will be consigned to the wacky chapter of human endeavor- squeezed in between bobbing for witches and eugenics.

As Christians, we do want to be good stewards of the planet, but at a higher level, Christians are challenged to kick the tires on their beliefs – constantly – but you don’t see the same thing happening per climate-change alarmists. The former operating at a much higher level than the latter.

Climate change — it happens, with or without our help. Your back yard was created by God.

If you want technology innovation to occur at the highest and most efficient (non-job killing) rate to keep our planet clean, then do not vote for either a socialist, a Marxist or a communist.

For good reference material, search for my name online for past Redmond Reporter articles on this topic. Again, it is now time to return to fact-based thinking.
