In the midst of one of the most extraordinary winter snowstorms to hit the country in modern times, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy took to her official government blog to warn of the dangers of global warming. Fresh off a trip to Aspen, Colorado, where she watched the X-Games, McCarthy said that by the year 2100, “Aspen’s climate could be a lot like that of Amarillo, TX.”
According to McCarthy, if Americans fail to act on climate change, the X-Games that depend on long winters, the northern communities that thrive on a snowy tourist season, and the country’s economy could be threatened. “Even if you hate winter,” McCarthy writes, “climate change affects you – because climate risks are economic risks.”
McCarthy, the head cultist in Obama’s cult of global warming, goes on to promise that people can follow her on social media to find out what they can do to protect the winter sports they love. Of course, any cultist worth their salt already knows “what they can do.” The propaganda has been spread far and wide for as long as most Americans can remember. What’s funny, though, is how little people are willing to change their lifestyles even when they supposedly “believe” in this charade.
The Phantom Believers
Think about it. Imagine for a moment that you abandoned all your senses and decided that humans were directly responsible for changing the Earth’s climate. Imagine that you thought that we would all soon perish from massive storms, an overflow of the ocean, and intense temperatures that would not sustain life. And imagine you believed that human-produced CO2 was the cause. Okay? Now what?
According to the latest polls, 40 percent of Americans believe that the Earth is getting warmer and that humans are responsible. Strangely, though, hybrid cars only account for about 3 percent of vehicles on American highways today. If you really believed that humans were about to make the world uninhabitable, would you not stop using fossil fuels immediately?
40 percent buy into the full climate change enchilada, but only 10 percent carpool to work. Consider that many of those do so for reasons other than environmental protection.
According to a recent study, people can cut their carbon footprints in half by going vegan. Once again, 40 percent supposedly buy into the propaganda, but only 0.5 percent of American adults follow a vegan lifestyle.
The global warming cult is an anemic one, to say the least. Americans are flooded with stories telling them that climate change is real, that the science is settled, and that we need to act fast if we want to save the planet. And many buy into it, paying lip service to the idea that we must change. But when it comes to actually doing something about it, it’s suddenly not that important. And I think that speaks volumes when it comes to what people really believe.
No one reading this will likely be alive to see whether McCarthy’s dire prediction about Aspen comes true or not, but you can use her claim as a way to set up a nice little trust fund for your heirs. Just place a bet with an environmentalist foundation, and let your children or grandchildren reap the rewards. Of course, that’s assuming you could find anyone to take the bet. Considering the statistics, you may have to look for a long time.
