Global Climate Change And Idiots

by on Feb.15, 2010, under Commentary, Essays, General, Political

Here we go again. The politicization of the global climate change debate. And both sides are showing their stupidity. We have the idiots on the opposing side to anthropogenic warming pointing to the recent record snowfalls in the mid-atlantic as evidence that there is no warming and the global warming fanaticists saying that it is evidence that there is climate change. SCIENCE!!!! Where’s the science? Don’t any of these people understand the first thing about how we collect and interpret data? One season does not a climate make and neither side should be trumpeting these snowfalls to back up their positions. While it is cold and snowy in some places it is inevitably warmer and drier in others. None of these short term phenomena are proof of anything.

I’ve studied the earth’s climate in various ways for thirty years. There is no conclusive proof that climate change is, or is not, occurring. The recent spate of revelations that the falsification of evidence by climate change scientists was perpetrated is quite disturbing. This especially due to the fact that so much of this “science” has been used to back up the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The fact that the IPCC is an organ of the U.N. is enough to make me distrust it. Yet, the fact that it has now been exposed as using falsified and questionable data truly brings their motives into question. Personally I believe that the U.N. is trying to use this issue as a means of increasing their control over national sovereignty and to diminish the role of the United States in the world. Indeed if one is to control the use of energy production one will control every aspect of our lives.

On the other hand I feel it is quite near-sighted to suppose that six and a half billion people have no effect on the state of our environment. Especially when one considers the vast amount of resources that go into our everyday existence. Our use of fossil fuels is exorbitant and cannot continue at this pace forever. Even if it has no effect on the atmosphere and the climate these resources are finite. At the very least we need to diligently pursue the production of energy by other means. Regardless if climate change is occurring, or if it is caused by man, it is to our benefit to investigate the potential of other sources of energy. Deriding the global warming fanatics does nothing to improve our existence on this planet. Except when they are challenged on their ulterior motives for the paths they want to pursue to alleviate this “problem”.

Yet, the religion of climate change caused by man is quite an orthodoxy. Any ideas that counter their doctrinal positions are met with fierce opposition. No quarter is given and they feel justified in using any means necessary to defend their beliefs. As we have seen with the falsified science we also see in their insidious attempts to pass legislation that will control every aspects of our lives. Not to mention increasing the cost of living for the average person significantly. Yet, they want to place these laws, taxes, and regulations on us with absolutely no evidence that they will have any benefit to the alleviating the “crisis” that they claim is at hand.

Enough is enough!! We need to look at this issue with a level head. We need to have unmolested scientific data to base our decisions upon. We must find ways to work alternative energy sources into our economy without turning the means by which we live our daily lives upside down. This is especially true for the billions already living at the edge of existence. Change is necessary. Yet, the rate and nature of that change is the paramount question. Everything we do must be mitigated by the effects that it will have on the lives of people on a day to day basis. Is this not supposed to be the goal of both sides on this issue. Are we not supposed to be improving the lives of people and our environment to the better of us all? Remember it is God’s planet not ours!!! And he’s going to want it back someday.

Another Day

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 2009, General, Poetry, Uncategorized


I’ll do it tomorrow another day

Some other time I hope I pray

But, time inevitably passes by it slips away

When my life finally comes to an end

How much time will I have allowed to be sent

to oblivion, the nether world, or uselessly spent?

Those who do are the ones who create

They know the clock is relentless that genius always knows the time is late

So, why do I always squander hours like minutes and years like days?

More On Stupidity

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 2009, General, Poetry


It’s difficult to understand stupidity

Especially when it’s seen with such lucidity

Knowledge doesn’t have to be elusive

But, idiocy is so powerfully intrusive

That it fails to ever leave me alone

This universal poisoner of the human race

Drowning us with wave after wave after wave

Encompassing us in the bars of its cage

It seems that for man wisdom is not coming with age

Argument By Design

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 1998, Commentary, Poetry, Uncategorized

Surely if one does not believe in God they must not believe in Beethoven

Surely if one does not believe in a Creator they must not believe in Michaelangelo either

For as sure as the 9th symphony and as certain as the Sistine Chapel the Universe does exist

Surpassing in beauty, dwarfing in grandeur, exceeding in wonder by incomparable measure

and unfathomable degrees these mere atoms of art

With one stroke of his brush with one note from his orchestra

God has made a thousand sunsets and ten million songs

Yet, the universe has unfolded by chance?

Does the orchestra play without a conductor?

Did Michaelangelo not work with a rainbow at his side?

If not God then what devined the design?

Industrial Education

by on Feb.15, 2010, under 1997, Poetry

Imposing a stone like rigidity

All must fit within the walls conformity

Making monsters of young girls and little boys

Giving them a number and taking away their toys

Grow up and don’t rock, dream, or spit

And await our orders to eat, work, or take a shit
