Now, they want you to pay more. A great deal more.
And not just money.
They want more than merely money.
They want power. To micromanage and control your every movement. It is of a piece with “health care” reform – which encompasses literally everything.
We have arrived at a watershed moment. These people who have arrogated virtually unlimited power are no longer the least bit shy about asserting it. Nothing is beyond their purview. Not how we live, not how how we recreate, not what we eat and drink. Not whom we hire or rent to or even whom we marry.
Of course, this hasn’t stopped the efforts by the Left to reduce world population. The Left loves the idea of advancing abortion around the world. There are reports that vaccines in India and elsewhere have actually been used to introduce life-threatening illnesses and reduce population. Indeed, “population control” is a major theme on the Green Left, going as far back as Paul Ehrlich’s calls for massive population reduction in his book The Population Bomb. There are even a few extremist environmentalists who advocate forcible, violent reduction of the earth’s population to around 500 million (which would make Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot together look like rank amateurs).
All of it premised on shoddy, unsubstantiated, and indeed unsubstantiable “science.”
Of course, one of the most well-known modern environmentalist myths hiding behind the label of “science” is that of anthropogenic climate change, known colloquially as “global warming.”
Global warming is embedded in the Western psyche as the premiere “threat” to the world today. The argument for global warming rests on the premise that as CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels have risen in the earth’s atmosphere beginning with the advent of Industrial Evolution, the earth’s temperature has been rising due to the greenhouse effect. Supporting this argument was “data” which supposedly gave a neat “hockey stick” graph that purported to show that the earth’s climate change had reached a critical point where temperatures are now rising much more rapidly, and will result in the melting of the earth’s ice cap, raising sea levels over 60 meters and wiping out coast http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/59090
