The British lawyer who last week called for introducing international laws through the United Nations which would make it a crime against humanity to question the reality of man-made global warming has close ties with the Club of Rome – the ultra elitist organization which openly bragged of how it invented the climate change scare as a means of manipulating the global population to accept world government.

British lawyer-turned-campaigner Polly Higgins (pictured top) recently launched an initiative to have the UN put pressure on national governments to pass laws that would declare the mass destruction of ecosystems a crime against peace, punishable by the International Criminal Court.

Under the guise of going after big corporations and polluters for the war crime of emitting the gas that humans exhale and plants breathe, the proposal would actually target individuals and people who merely express skepticism towards man-made global warming.

“Supporters of a new ecocide law also believe it could be used to prosecute “climate deniers” who distort science and facts to discourage voters and politicians from taking action to tackle global warming and climate change,” reported the London Guardian.

Some respondents to the Guardian article agreed that merely questioning whether man-made climate change was real should be criminalized – literally calling for the establishment of a UN-run thought police that would prosecute anyone who expressed dissent against the AGW belief system.

EPA Head: No Warming Since 1995 Doesn’t Mean Warming Isn’t Occurring

EPA Head: No Warming Since 1995 Doesnt Mean Warming Isnt Occurring 240210epa

The science is settled, give us more money

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson engaged in doublespeak of the highest degree today as she told reporters that no statistically significant increase in global temperatures since 1995 does not mean that there has not been human induced global warming.

“The science regarding climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming,” Jackson said, adding that the EPA needs more funding to ensure climate change legislation is passed.

Jackson was asked if she agreed with recent statements by Phil Jones, the lead scientist at the centre of the climategate scandal that there had been no statistically significant global warming for fifteen years.

Earlier this month, Jones reversed his stance and admitted there had been no recent temperature increase and that his data was “probably not as good as it should be”.

Jones also told the BBC that he does not think the debate on climate change is over.

The EPA’s Jackson stated: “I believe all the new information we have doesn’t lead to any different conclusion than what we reached in the Endangerment Finding,” referring to the agency’s classification of Carbon Dioxide as a pollutant.

“…climate is changing and that mankind is responsible in part for that change, and that we need to move aggressively.” Jackson added, alluding to cap and trade legislation.

“We need to move clean energy legislation,” Jackson said. “We need to move to addressing carbon and putting a price on carbon emissions.”

On Tuesday Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe called for a full criminal investigation into the climategate affair, issuing a staff report that included a request for the EPA to re-examine the classification of Carbon Dioxide as a pollutant.

“The EPA accepted the IPCC’s erroneous claims wholesale, without doing its own independent review,” Inhofe said about the EPA’s decision to rely on information from the U.N.’s International Panel on Climate Change.

“So EPA’s endangerment finding rests on bad science,” he added.

An overturning of the EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding would decimate moves by the Obama Administration to regulate carbon emissions and introduce carbon taxes.

Inhofe described the manipulation of climate science to support anthropogenic global warming theory part of “the greatest scientific scandal of our generation”.

New Delhi – At least 17 people died as towns and cities in India’s northern states were hit by cold weather, officials said on Friday.

“Sixteen people have died in Uttar Pradesh since early Wednesday due to cold [weather] conditions in the state. Most victims were homeless or pavement dwellers,” state police spokesman G N Khanna said.

Police in Jammu, the winter capital of India-administered Kashmir, found the body of a worker who also died due to the cold.

Temperatures have plummeted in Uttar Pradesh and main cities such as Kanpur and Agra recorded temperatures as low as 1 to 4 degrees Celsius.

Science According to Al Gore: Earth Interior “Millions of Degrees”

Not only did Al Gore invent the internet, he has also redefined earth science. The puffed up phrophet of the phony climate change movement went on the Conan O’Brien Show in mid-November and told the world the temperature of the interior of the earth is “millions of degrees.” O’Brien didn’t flinch.

In fact, the Inner Mantle of the earth is 5400 ºF (3000ºC) and the Outer Mantle is 2520 ºF (1400ºC) and 5400 º F (3000ºC). The Core of the earth is between 9032 – 10832 ºF (5000-6000 ºC).

This is an estimation. Nobody knows the exact temperature of the earth’s interior. The estimate of the temperature is derived from theoretical modeling and laboratory experiments, but no scientist believes the temperature is anywhere near a million degrees.

The above video demonstrates that Al Gore is a carnival huckster for the globalist movement peddling junk science and has no idea what he is talking about.

Copenhagen Spokesman Calls for “Creation of Vision” through Works of Fiction at UNESCO Conference

Broadcasters play a vital role by informing and educating the public about the realities of climate change and the costs of inaction. Armed with information, citizens are better equipped to push for meaningful and responsible follow-through from their elected representatives. This is all the more essential in the final days before Copenhagen.”

 

 Statement by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for UNESCO’s International Conference on Broadcast Media and Climate Change

 

At a UNESCO conference in September of this year on how to best sell the global warming hoax to selected target audiences, spokesman and media-manager of the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change Eric Hall called for the creation of “an imagination, and a vision” through works of fiction for people to chew on in the run-up and exceeding the Copenhagen conference next week.

 

Eric Hall

 

Eric Hall (r.) called for the creation of climate change “imagination, and a vision” through works of fiction.

 

“That”, Hall explained, “will come through film, it will come through soap operas, it will come through reality TV, it will come through novels.”

 

He made the statement at the conference “Broadcast Media and Climate Change”, organized by the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organisation. Attended by a wide range of public and private broadcasters from around the globe, the meetings were recorded on tape for all to see and hear, highlighting the need for- as one attendee described it: “raising awareness on climate change worldwide”.

 

To put Eric Hall’s call for fiction-induced mind control into context, here follows a short summary of the conference. Because the video’s are copyright-protected, they are not posted here (I have included the accurate time-codes so the reader may easily look them up). The entire transcript archive of the conference can be accessed here.

 

Jean Reveillon, Director General of the European Broadcasting Union, outlines the mission at the very start of the conference (Session 1, 00:8:36):

 

“We believe that the subject at hand is of great importance and the very idea that people from the media- and in particular broadcasters- be able to come together and reflect on the best way to cover information on climate change in order to provide the best possible public service mission that is ours to the world (…)”

 

During the first session of the conference, we see a familiar face. Mr. IPCC and co-receiver of the Nobel peace-prize Rajendra K. Pachauri tells us via satellite link (Session 1, 01:05:00):

 

“Earlier speakers have referred to the importance of bringing about behavioural changes- and may I submit that these behavioural changes would essentially be in the nature of changes in lifestyles. There a several things that we can do in our individual lives and I think the broadcasting community perhaps needs to go out and tell people- and create a grass-roots movement (…).”

 

When broadcasters tell people what to do, any movement as a result of it would of course no longer be grass-roots. Vice-Chair of the IPCC, Jean-Pascal Van Ypersele, seconds Mr. Pachauri’s statements, saying (Session 1, 01:12:08):

 

“We are very much convinced in the IPCC that media- in particular broadcast media which talks to so many people at the same time- have a particular role to inform and educate the citizens throughout the world; and the IPCC is really keen on collaborating with you and trying to provide the best information, the most understandable information so that you can do your very important work.”

 

In response, the Director General of the European Broadcasting Union immediately replied:

 

 

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t
  • efoods

“Thank you very much. And indeed I can confirm that we from the media want to do our best to accomplish that mission.”

 

Another UN PR-person states (Session 1, 01:19:42):

 

“It is very important that the media seize this moment and help the United Nations and help others if they can. Very soon the United Nations will be putting out as part of its campaign a public service announcement. We hope you will work with us as far as that is concerned. I also pray that you’ll examine all roads. You look truly at revolutionary ways on climate change coverage.”

 

An interesting intermezzo was provided by speaker Alex Kirby, a 20-year BBC veteran environment reporter, who openly stated he cares not for opposing views of the IPCC fairytale, bizarrely comparing climate-sceptics to Apartheid proponents (Session 1, 01:36:35):

 

“I’ve never thought it is part of the journalists’ job to try to inject an artificial and spurious balance into an unbalanced reality. If I have been sent to do a story on Apartheid or poverty or starvation, I hope to God I would not have tried to do a balanced story. And I think the same applies to climate change.”

 

Even more interesting than the statement itself is the fact that it is not included in the transcript of his speech,  posted here on the UNESCO-website.

 

But the most curious statement coming out of the mouth of a UN communications person is that uttered by Eric Hall- chief PR-man at the United Nations. Hall outlined the way that climate change can best be hammered into the collective is through works of fiction (Session 2, 00:39:06):

 

“Probably the majority of the world does not read news at all. They don’t look at news as to change, to get their information or to change their behaviour. If climate change is about behavioural change, ultimately which I believe it is, then from a media perspective you must, you must look at it in a way that it’s not just about news. It’s about creating an imagination, and a vision, of what a climate change world- or a successfully avoided climate change world- will look like. That will come through film, it will come through soap operas, it will come through reality TV, it will come through novels.”

 

Hall draws an analogy with media-coverage in the Cold War era:

 

“If we did not have that visual imagination from the non-news part of the media about what a post-nuclear world would have looked like, we would have been in much more serious trouble that we have been if we wouldn’t have got the kind of agreements we had on the nuclear problem – itself a similar human civilization threatening problem.”

 

It seems that the greatest work of fiction shoved in humanity’s face today is the man-made global warming contrivance. Thanks to the leaked documents of the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, the mass mind control activities of most of the broadcasters is breaking down. The recent comments by high level media people about climategate indicates that the propaganda effort is blowing up in the face of those who perpetuate the lie all this time. If UNESCO’s Walter Erdelen would have known that crucial information would be leaked to the general public almost three months later, he probably wouldn’t have  bragged about his organisation’s role in perpetuating the myth nor highlighted UNESCO’s large role in the selling of it:

 

“This crucial role is largely invisible to the public eye. UNESCO has long sponsored the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), which are precisely what their names imply, and are fundamental to the progress made by the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Fully 91% of coordinating authors of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report were WCRP scientists, and thus had the support of UNESCO behind them.”

 

This is a good example of a statement turning into a confession in retrospect. All those institutions involved will, after all, be held to account for the role they have played in this whole sordid affair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poll Shows Belief in Global Warming is Declining PDF

Posted in "Global Warming", Attack on Freedom, New World Order, News with tags , , , , , on October 24, 2009 by truthwillrise

With the Copenhagen UN Climate Change Conference less than two months away, a new poll reveals that more and more Americans are seeing through the hype. Meanwhile, the Internationalists are squealing that Obama isn’t doing enough to push their agenda.

A poll by the Pew Research Center has documented a 20 point drop in the number of Americans who believe in anthropogenic (that is, man-made) climate change. According to a story from the Associated Press:

Just 57 percent think there is solid evidence the world is getting warmer, down 20 points in just three years, a new poll says. And the share of people who believe pollution caused by humans is causing temperatures to rise has also taken a dip, even as the U.S. and world forums gear up for possible action against climate change.

In a poll of 1,500 adults by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, released Thursday, the number of people saying there is strong scientific evidence that the Earth has gotten warmer over the past few decades is down from 71 percent in April of last year and from 77 percent when Pew started asking the question in 2006. The number of people who see the situation as a serious problem also has declined.

The margin of error in this study is relatively small — three percent — and thus it is clearly an indication of very good news which could not have come at a better time. As we have documented previously, there are valid scientific grounds for doubting the ‘doom and gloom’ scenarios being pushed by the environmental extremists: the models which predicted extreme climate change are out of step with the data.

When it comes to environmental fear-mongering, more people need to be asking: “Cui bono?” Who stands to gain from fomenting hysteria? Massive economic redistribution schemes are caught up in the plans for Copenhagen — in fact, as much as $1 trillion may be taxed out of the hides of the people of the First World and given to the Third World to offset the costs of their adaptation to the Green Global New World Order.

Most Americans certainly don’t want to see a system of cap-and-trade imposed on their economy, just to watch the taxes raised by that system given away to other nations. Again, according to the AP article:

The steepest drop has occurred during the past year, as Congress and the Obama administration have taken steps to control heat-trapping emissions for the first time and international negotiations for a new treaty to slow global warming have been under way. …

Only about a third, or 36 percent of the respondents, feel that human activities — such as pollution from power plants, factories and automobiles — are behind a temperature increase. That’s down from 47 percent from 2006 through last year’s poll. …

Political breakdowns in the survey underscore how tough it could be to enact a law limiting pollution emissions blamed for warming. While three-quarters of Democrats believe the evidence of a warming planet is solid, and nearly half believe the problem is serious, far fewer conservative and moderate Democrats see the problem as grave. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say there is no solid evidence of global warming, up from 31 percent in early 2007.

With the economy in shambles, and mid-term elections only a year away, many politicians will to be looking to their futures. The science is weak and the people know it — despite a seemingly-endless indoctrination program from almost every media outlet, clearly many citizens are simply refusing to listen to the hype anymore.

The result of this public disbelief in man-made climate change? The Internationalists are beginning to panic. Today, the official UN website for the upcoming Copenhagen Conference is publicly excoriating President Obama for not doing more to force adoption of cap-and-trade:

Adoption of US legislation on climate change before the UN conference in Copenhagen this December will be crucial to the successful outcome of the conference. Therefore, US President Barack Obama should not resign himself to suggestions that the legislative process will need more time.

This was the message from Rajendra Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), as he attended a debate in Stockholm.

“I personally feel he (Barack Obama) ought to do a lot more (…) He really has to assert himself to see that the US passes legislation (…) He has to get the Senate to legislate the Kerry-Barbara Boxer bill (…) He had not (yet) put his weight behind it,” Rajendra Pachauri said according to AFP.

The IPCC chair added that he was cautiously optimistic on the chances of getting US legislation in place before the Copenhagen conference; that it is “critically important that the US be part of this world deal” and that a US bill “could make all the difference in the negotiations.”

But the candidate of “Hope and Change” is hearing a lot of political whining right now. From the utter inability of the Obama administration to deal with a cratering economy, and the constantly moving deadline for health care collectivization, it appears that the President has discovered it is easier to read speeches than actually work within the messy political process; the only ‘change’ presently coming out of this White House seems restricted to what can be wrapped in the mantle of “executive orders” and similar unilateral machinations.

Yes, the pesky political process of the United States is wearisome to the gaggle of globalists at the IPCC. And certainly the environmental fringe will not quietly accept their weakening position in the opinion of the public; in fact, one may anticipate that the Chicken Little brigade is presently investing in louder megaphones and they, together with the media and political elites, will ramp up the threats of imminent global death unless we surrender control of the global economy to international environmental regulation. But for the moment, truth is making headway against error, and that is good news indeed.

When breaking the numbers down, 57% believe there is global warming. Only 36% of THOSE believe global warming is anthropogenic. What this means is that LESS than 21% of respondents believe in anthropogenic global warming.

Mr. Gore, it is obvious that you have managed to fool some people, you have also shown it obvious that you know the truth because of your refusal to even TRY to debate your position. You KNOW you don’t have a leg to stand on, and yet you persist.

Scientific Siege Against UN-IPCC Farce Revealed

What I find frightening is the fact that most of the people will buy into Human Caused Climate Change just because power speaks it… even though the data and factual analysis show it to be untrue.

In 1998 a group of concerned scientists began a concerted effort to counter this trend, and to stop the false UN-IPCC push to tax the people of the world and blame climate change on humanity. This HUGE effort has gone totally unreported by the mainstream media. It is the Global Warming Petition Project.

This effort is NOT a political effort, it is PURELY SCIENTIFIC in it’s thrust!  All signers must be scientists with at least a Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited school… there are over 31,478 signatories so far. As we speak, 9029 with Phds are among them… and over 12,000 work directly in climate related fields. (Since I first posted this, the number of scientists have increased and still the GWPP is hidden by the media.) 
Here is a direct link to the thinking and analysis on CO2 I did in a 2007 article.

The climate has always cycled over time. We are now in a cyclic warming trend and the data shows its long cycle predictability. With interdisciplinary communication, science has opened much of the climate change complexity to the light of reason and out of the realm of fear.  Fear is what the UN-IPCC, the politicians, and their minions have chosen to foist on us, a snake god operation in the name of anthropogenic climate change. The IPCC has been unmasked as the political organization it is, with it’s money making, world carbon tax, agenda/scam.

The proponants of human caused climate change rattle on about polar bears being destroyed by humanities evil CO2, which is BS. They also go on about island nations like Tuvalu being flooded by “humanity’s evil.” The data shows that the sea level world wide was about 12 inches higher during the Medieval Climate Optimum from about 750AD to 1200AD. During that time the average ocean temperature reached 24.2 degrees C. Then the Earth plummeted into the Little Ice Age which at it’s coldest dropped the ocean temperatures to 21.8 degrees C in about 1750AD. This is when the Thames, the Delaware, and Hudson rivers used to freeze solid every winter. We are now at 22.8 degrees C, which is below the 3,000 year average of just a tad under 23 degrees C. We are still coming out of the Little Ice age today! 1000 years ago the Island Tuvalu was almost under water, and will be again, but not because of human causes!

“Figure 1: Surface temperatures in the Sargasso Sea, a 2 million square mile region of the Atlantic Ocean, with time resolution of 50 to 100 years and ending in 1975, as determined by isotope ratios of marine organism remains in sediment at the bottom of the sea (3). The horizontal line is the average temperature for this 3,000-year period. The Little Ice Age and Medieval Climate Optimum were naturally occurring, extended intervals of climate departures from the mean. A value of 0.25 °C, which is the change in Sargasso Sea temperature between 1975 and 2006, has been added to the 1975 data in order to provide a 2006 temperature value.

The average temperature of the Earth has varied within a range of about 3°C during the past 3,000 years. It is currently increasing as the Earth recovers from a period that is known as the Little Ice Age, as shown in Figure 1. George Washington and his army were at Valley Forge during the coldest era in 1,500 years, but even then the temperature was only about 1° Centigrade below the 3,000-year average.

Figure 2: Average length of 169 glaciers from 1700 to 2000 (4). The principal source of melt energy is solar radiation. Variations in glacier mass and length are primarily due to temperature and precipitation (5,6). This melting trend lags the temperature increase by about 20 years, so it predates the 6-fold increase in hydrocarbon use (7) even more than shown in the figure. Hydrocarbon use could not have caused this shortening trend.

The most recent part of this warming period is reflected by shortening of world glaciers, as shown in Figure 2. Glaciers regularly lengthen and shorten in delayed correlation with cooling and warming trends. Shortening lags temperature by about 20 years, so the current warming trend began in about 1800.

Figure 3: Arctic surface air temperature compared with total solar irradiance as measured by sunspot cycle amplitude, sunspot cycle length, solar equatorial rotation rate, fraction of penumbral spots, and decay rate of the 11-year sunspot cycle (8,9). Solar irradiance correlates well with Arctic temperature, while hydrocarbon use (7) does not correlate.

Atmospheric temperature is regulated by the sun, which fluctuates in activity as shown in Figure 3; by the greenhouse effect, largely caused by atmospheric water vapor (H2O); and by other phenomena that are more poorly understood. While major greenhouse gas H2O substantially warms the Earth, minor greenhouse gases such as CO2 have little effect, as shown in Figures 2 and 3. The 6-fold increase in hydrocarbon use since 1940 has had no noticeable effect on atmospheric temperature or on the trend in glacier length.

While Figure 1 is illustrative of most geographical locations, there is great variability of temperature records with location and regional climate. Comprehensive surveys of published temperature records confirm the principal features of Figure 1, including the fact that the current Earth temperature is approximately 1 °C lower than that during the Medieval Climate Optimum 1,000 years ago (11,12).”

We have real environmental problems that this “thing”, this human caused climate change “thing” is obfuscating, leading us away from things that need to be addressed. The environmental movement has been hijacked/kidnapped by the UN-IPCC and it’s Pied Piper, Algore. The fact that virtually all of our leaders, on all sides have come out in support of this LIE, betrays them and their allegiance to the NWO, the ruling elite, and their disregard for the climate and disdain for the Constitution. 

They spew the words placed in their mouths by their global carbon taxation masters. There isn’t a dimes worth of difference between John McPuppet, Barack O’Puppet, or AlGore Puppet they all regurgitate the same global feudalistic talking points. Thus any discussion of their opinions has no validity in a discussion of facts and actualities, which like truth holds sway over OPINION even the OPINION of power busying itself selling climate change snake oil in a package of fear.

Save the Earth, Kill People

Posted in "Global Warming", Attack on Freedom, New World Order, News with tags , , , , , on July 21, 2009 by truthwillrise

PunditGuy | Apr 03, 2006

That’s the idea coming from a professor at the University of Texas. And we’re not talking about off’ing just a few people – nope. He suggest 90 percent of the population would be a good start.

“Every one of you who gets to survive has to bury nine,” Eric Pianka cautioned students and guests at St. Edward’s University on Friday. Pianka’s words are part of what he calls his “doomsday talk” — a 45-minute presentation outlining humanity’s ecological misdeeds and Pianka’s predictions about how nature, or perhaps humans themselves, will exterminate all but a fraction of civilization.

Though his statements are admittedly bold, he’s not without abundant advocates. But what may set this revered biologist apart from other doomsday soothsayers is this: Humanity’s collapse is a notion he embraces.

Indeed, his words deal, very literally, on a life-and-death scale, yet he smiles and jokes candidly throughout the lecture. Disseminating a message many would call morbid, Pianka’s warnings are centered upon awareness rather than fear.

“This is really an exciting time,” he said Friday amid warnings of apocalypse, destruction and disease. Only minutes earlier he declared, “Death. This is what awaits us all. Death.” Reflecting on the so-called Ancient Chinese Curse, “May you live in interesting times,” he wore, surprisingly, a smile.

According to Pianka, 5.8 billion people should be systematically killed. That’s right, good ‘ol fashioned Genocide. Incredible? Yes. Thankfully, there are still a few right minded people in this world.

But don’t tell local “citizen scientist” Forrest Mims to quietly swallow Pianka’s call to awareness. Mims says it’s an “abhorrent death wish” and contends he has “no choice but to take a stand.”

Mims attended the educator’s doomsday presentation at the Texas Academy of Science’s annual meeting March 2-4. There, the organization honored Pianka as its 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist — another issue Mims vocally opposes.

“This guy is a loose cannon to believe that worldwide genocide is the only answer,” said Mims, who filed two formal petitions with the academy following the meeting.

Joining the crusade, James Pitts, who received a Ph.D. in physics from UT-Austin, became the second to publicly chastise Pianka when he filed a complaint Saturday with the UT board of regents. He insists a state university is no place to disseminate such views.

He writes:

“Pianka’s message does not fall within the realm of his professional competence as a biologist, because it is a normative claim, not a descriptive one. Pianka is encouraged to use his ecological expertise to predict the likely consequences of certain technological and reproductive strategies, but to evaluate some as good, bad, or worthy of prevention by genocide is the realm of philosophy or political science, not science. His message falls no more within his professional competence than it would for a physicist to teach religion in class or a musician to encourage racism.”

The most dangerous thing about Pianka is that he’s currently employed and paid to instruct young minds. What’s to stop these younglings from becoming supporters of their professor and his wacko “Final Solution”? Apparently, his former students have already weighed in. They think he’s the bees knees.

Most of Pianka’s former students are bursting with praise. Their in-class evaluations celebrate his ideas with words like “the most incredible class I ever had” and “Pianka is a GOD!”

Mims counters their ovation with the story of a Texas Lutheran University student who attended the Academy of Science lecture. Brenna McConnell, a biology senior, said she and others in the audience “had not thought seriously about overpopulation issues and a feasible solution prior to the meeting.” But though McConnell arrived at the event with little to say on the issue, she returned to Seguin with a whole new outlook.

An entry to her online blog captures her initial response to what’s become a new conviction:

“[Pianka is] a radical thinker, that one!” she wrote. “I mean, he’s basically advocating for the death for all but 10 percent of the current population. And at the risk of sounding just as radical, I think he’s right.”

Today, she maintains the Earth is in dire straits. And though she’s decided Ebola isn’t the answer, she’s still considering other deadly viruses that might take its place in the equation.

“Maybe I just see the virus as inevitable because it’s the easiest answer to this problem of overpopulation,” she said.

Congratulations Mom and Dad! Aren’t you glad you forked over tens of thousands of dollars to pay for an education like the one being provided by Professor Pianka and his accomplices at the University of Texas? Oh, and let’s not forget about tax payer money that funds the grants and the student loans which enable these individuals to hear, digest, and conclude that this crap might actually be legitimate.

Pianka is quite a character. On his website, he’s known as “The Lizard Man”. His biography is written in the form of an obituary. He lived in the desert for 10 years, alone. He likes to think of himself as a hermit. He has posted pictures of himself standing next to a bull he calls “Lucifer”. He publishes his university owned email address as being hosted by heaven/hell.com. When clicked upon, the address actually resolves to pianka@mail.utexas.edu. Obviously, a strange attempt at humor. I wonder what the University thinks about that?

Wanna know what worries me most? There are thousands of Pianka’s in the U.S. teaching our kids to hate America, devalue God given life, reject Judeo-Christian values, and adopt a world-view based in moral relativism. Why do we willingly relinquish and hand over control of future generations to these radicals? Nevermind mass human extermination, I propose we save the earth from people like Pianka.

The political establishment’s response to the global warming doubts raised by EPA researcher, Alan Carlin, is remarkable. The mantra chanted by one EPA official – and dutifully echoed across the media – is that Mr. Carlin “is not a scientist.” This fact, of course, has not kept Al Gore from becoming the patron saint of the environmental religion. (Gore received his PhD in which of the recognized sciences?)

An assertion of this sort is evidence of the anti-intellectualism that has metastasized across academia and spread to other venues of expression. Universities have become so dominated by an insistence upon the inviolability of the “turfs” of various disciplines as to make one unworthy to speak on matters of which he or she has not been certified to utter opinions by fellow academics. There was once a time – many decades ago – when a “liberal arts” education was regarded as a means of introducing people to a wide range of subject areas that would permit them to think and speak intelligently on various matters affecting their lives. Collective thinking – which now permeates college campuses – rejects such an idea, conferring subject matter monopolies according to one’s acknowledged “expertise.”

 

When my “In Restraint of Trade” book was first published twelve years ago, an academic reviewer from a respected history department spent most of his time acquainting his readers with the fact that I taught in a law school and not a history department. The review ended up being little more than a strident defense of turf, and a condemnation of my efforts to focus attention on matters unfamiliar to historians.

I enjoy watching Jonathan Hoenig every Saturday morning on Fox News’ “Cashin’ In” program on investment analysis. He is a consistent advocate of free-markets, individual liberty, and private property. He recently stated that humans “must think in order to survive,” but that we have recently been “outsourcing” this function to others. Such a practice now prevails on university campuses, and helps to explain why academia is a source of so little original and meaningful thinking. Don’t wonder about what anything means: the “experts” whose jobs are dependent upon advancing the agendas of the political establishment will explain it all to you!
