Global Warming Shamanism <— P.J. O’Rourke


Global Warming Shaman — Fear Equals Funding

“Oh no, the Night Wolf is eating the Moon Virgin. Give me some silver and I’ll make him spit her out.”

The bullying of fellow citizens by means of dreads and frights has been going on since paleolithic times. Greenpeace fund-raisers on the subject of global warming are not much different than tribal wizards on the subject of lunar eclipses.

“Oh no, the Night Wolf is eating the Moon Virgin.
Give me some silver and I’ll make him spit her out.”

Climate Change Hysteria <– Inhofe


Why is it that any unseasonably warm weather is proof of global warming, but unseasonably cold weather isn't evidence of the past six years of global cooling?

Since 1895, the media has alternated between global cooling and warming scares during four separate and sometimes overlapping time periods.

  • From 1895 until the 1930’s the media peddled a coming ice age.
  • From the late 1920’s until the 1960’s they warned of global warming.
  • From the 1950’s until the 1970’s they warned us again of a coming ice age.
  • This makes modern global warming the fourth estate’s fourth attempt to promote opposing climate change fears during the last 100 years.

~Senator James Inhofe, Senate Floor speech (2006)

Government Terrorism


fearequalsfunding-24bOur government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear — kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor — with the cry of grave national emergency.

Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded.

Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
