Distortions and misrepresentations of science are nothing new. However, I believe that climate science takes it to a new level. Politicians, the media, the climate industry, and even educators have joined forces to push the idea that humans and probably cows are responsible for “climate change.”Everyone acknowledges that the climate always has and likely always will be changing. Many scientists believe that over earth’s history, episodic increases in CO2 concentration were caused by increasing temperatures, not the other way around. But as in the Wizard of Oz, “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”…the science is “settled” and we need to immediately begin to “fight” this existential battle. Who likes our chances in a fight with Mother Nature?This too shall pass. The politicians can raise a lot of money and probably win a few elections campaigning about this. But I think the amount of people believing that human activity is the sole cause of climate change will diminish after their electric bills skyrocket. I think science will prevail and eventually the proponents of radical anti-capitalist, anti-people “solutions” will recede back into the shadows, until the next opportunity arises. The worst part is, this state and our country will have wasted hundreds of billions of dollars on a fool’s errand.Jerry Goedert,Golden
