Think about what the reaction would be if the same circumstances/results were used in a Tea Party commercial aimed at voting for smaller government.

It's Not Just That Global Warming Is Fake. What Matters Is Why This Fakery Is Being Promoted.
http://www.garynorth.com/public/5156.cfm

Quote:
The global warming movement is not about global warming. It is about the creation of an international political control arrangement by which bureaucrats who favor socialism can gain control over the international economy.

This strategy was stated boldly by economist Robert Heilbroner in 1990. Heilbroner, the multi-millionaire socialist and author of the best-selling history of economic thought, The Worldly Philosophers, wrote the manifesto for these bureaucrats. He did this in an article, "Reflections: After Communism," published by The New Yorker (Sept. 10, 1990).

In this article, he made an astounding admission. He said that Ludwig von Mises had been right in 1920 in his article, "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth." Mises argued that without private ownership, central planners could not know what any resource is worth to consumers. With no capital market, the planners would be flying blind.

Heilbroner said that for 70 years, academic economists had either ignored this article or dismissed it without answering it. Then Heilbroner wrote these words: "Mises was right."

Heilbroner was one of these people. There is no reference to Mises in The Worldly Philosophers.

This admission was the preliminary section of Heilbroner's manifesto. He was cutting off all hope by socialists that there is a theoretically plausible response to Mises. The free market economy will always outproduce a socialist economy. Get used to it, he said.

Then, in the second section, he called on his socialist peers to get behind the ecology movement. Here, he said, is the best political means for promoting central planning, despite its inefficiency. In the name of ecology, he said, socialists can get a hearing from politicians and voters.

The article is not online. An abstract is. Here is the concluding thought of the abstract.

"The direction in which things are headed is some version of capitalism, whatever its title. In Eastern Europe, the new system is referred to as Not Socialism. Socialism may not continue as an important force now that Communism is finished. But another way of looking at socialism is as the society that must emerge if humanity is to cope with the ecological burden that economic growth is placing on the environment. From this perspective, the long vista after Communism leads through capitalism into a still unexplored world that must be safely attained and settled before it can be named."

Heilbroner did not care that a worldwide government-run economic planning system would not be called called socialism. He just wanted to see the system set up.

Heilbroner's peers got the message. That was what Kyoto was all about.

This makes me want to jam a '67 427 big block in my car and run open headers, and run it so rich the gas trickles out of the collectors. Just to make a statement and stick it to the man.

YOU CAN'T CALL THEM MUSLIM! THEY'RE BRITISH CITIZENS LIKE THE REST OF THEM!

they seriously have an iron grip on what's PC. You get fined or jail time for 'hate' speech, even if it's with friends.

The UK sure know how to screw with their own people.

Cut government by 50% and it will drastically reduce Co2 emissions and noise pollution.

Hence my comment. He's tall, lanky, and goofy looking, but he's marrying one of the hottest women alive. I should have been a footballer.
