Global Warming? No. Global Climate Disruption? Yes!
(The New American) -- by Raven Clabough --
Forced to contend with the reality that global warming is not a man-made phenomenon that will ultimately result in catastrophe, President Obama’s Science Czar John Holdren has turned away from terms like “global warming” and “climate change” and has instead targeted the newest threat to the globe: “global climate disruption.”
Addressing the clear attempt at repacking an old concept under a new title, England’s Telegraph joked, “That way whether it gets warmer or colder, wetter or drier, less climatically eventful or more climatically eventful, the result will be the same: it can all be put down to ‘global climate disruption.’”
Obama’s Science Czar could not very well allow the issue of climate change to die, as it would thwart efforts to pass tyrannical measures like the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, which regulates virtually every product produced in America, and Cap and Trade, a system that punishes thriving industrial economies by imposing a tax for the massive use of carbon. For Holdren, the solutions do not end there. According to the 1973 book Human Ecology: Global Problems and Solutions, which Holdren co-authored, he has long supported government population control, by any means necessary, and the destruction of the American economy.
It was during a lecture given by Holdren to the Kavli Prize Symposium on September 6 that Holdren first coined the expression “global climate disruption.” During the lecture, Holdren discussed a variety of aspects related to global climate disruption. He summed up the focus of his speech by explaining, “The problem is that the world is getting most of the energy its economies need in ways that are wrecking the climate its environment needs.” Holdren refuted claims that the Earth is no longer warming as a myth, and described the phenomenon as “highly uniform, not just about temperature, rapid compared to capacities for adjustment, and harmful for most places and times.”
At the start of his lecture, Holdren explained the transition from “global warming” to “global climate disruption”: “Climate change means disruption of the patterns. Global average temperature is just an index of the state of the global climate as expressed in these patterns. Small changes in the index [lead to] big changes in the patterns.”...
Despite the Left’s efforts to increase the public’s interest in climate change, and acquire support for climate-change legislation, a July poll commissioned by the Institute for Energy Research found that 70 percent of Americans reject Cap and Trade, even though the poll was conducted in the midst of the British Petroleum oil spill. An August Rasmussen Report poll shows that 61 percent of Americans support finding a new source of energy over reduction of energy consumption. Likewise, a 2010 Pew Research Center for the People and Press poll found that Americans ranked the issue of global warming last in their list of top priorities that the government should tackle.
It seems that no matter how the Green Czars attempt to package global warming and the solutions to combat it, Americans overwhelmingly reject it...MORE...LINK
