The case for anthropogenic global warming is dicey at best, and its most compelling argument is dependent on the notion that it’s the modern equivalent of the Black Death.
The parallels, in fact, are striking. For example, the Black Death, like climate change propaganda, was carried by fleas, which traveled by rodent and spread across the globe.
Just as the likes of Al “Man, I love the money from Al Jazeera” Gore and his pal, Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, aka Maggie Fox, have blamed “deniers,” and other heretics, the “scientific” establishment of the old days was also eager to turn hatred on others to achieve gain.
The 14th century equivalents of Gore and Fox blamed witches, foreigners, beggars, lepers, and so on. Which was handy in diverting attention from the power grabs of the time, not terribly different from these days.
For her imaginative approach, Fox gets $250 large a year.
There is one significant difference, though between the black death and the big warming.
Turns out that global warming has been a net positive, contributing 1.3 percent to GDP.
The good news about global warming is enough to make Cheap Seats drink to global warming, preferably with a nice vintage wine from Greenland, well off the beaten of the modern-day Black Plague of Gore and Fox’s virulent ignorance and greed.
