Renowned scientific authority, Harrison Ford, recently addressed the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco saying, “stop giving power to people who don’t believe in science”. And there you have the real story: Science isn’t something you are supposed to “believe in”, it is something that can be objectively and empirically proven, something that can be demonstrated so clearly that no “belief” is required.
But that is not what Mr. Ford and his like-minded climate-change fanatics think of science. When they say, “Science is real” they mean the kind of political consensus that Al Gore believes in, holding to the politically correct position that human activity is changing earth’s climate. They and their cronies believe this to be true, therefore it is true. That’s their science. It’s a hoax. It’s a lie.
They say there is no debate among scientists. And when qualified scientists do not agree with their climate change dogma, they don’t call that scientific debate (which it is, in fact). They call it heresy, junk science, foolishness, ignorance. Yet they are the ones who refuse to look at the evidence objectively.
The truth that Harrison Ford’s statement reveals is that climate control believers aren’t scientific at all. They are political. How do they seek to further their cause? By the weight of evidence produced by scientific research? No. By political action. “Stop giving power to people who don’t believe in science” means “Don’t elect politicians who aren’t going to implement our political agenda”.
According to experts such as retired astrophysicist Sallie Baliunas, there is no credible evidence that would indicate that if all the “green” policies are implemented to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fuel consumption that mean temperatures would be affected by any more than 1 degree Celsius in one hundred years from now. That is because climate cycles are not anthropomorphic. Human efforts to fight climate change are a waste of resources that could better be used to improve the quality of life.
But that’s not what the Chicken Littles are all about. They want the average person on the street to be so afraid that the sky is falling that we will agree to greater taxation, greater regulation and the eventual loss of our personal freedoms to the new order of global socialism. People like Harrison Ford, and you too — if you believe this hoax — are nothing more than useful idiots, supporting a political agenda that wants to make us all slaves.
I wish actors would stick to what they do best. I loved the Indiana Jones movies. But when it comes to science, Harrison Ford has no expertise. And in the realm of climate control, he’s all wet.
