No one told the President … And the invaders took over the kingdom.
The New York Times reported on October 23,
“The debate wasn’t normal by the standards of nearly all of American history… because one of the nominees — the sitting president — told one lie after another. He did so about the virus, North Korea, China, Russia, climate change, his own health care policy, Joe Biden’s health care policy, Biden’s finances and the immigrant children who were separated from their parents.”
“From a lying perspective, Trump is even worse tonight than in the first debate … an absolute avalanche of lying.”
Three polling groups concluded Biden won the debate by an average of 15 points.
One reviewer concluded, “Trump needed to make something huge happen. Nothing did.”
And that is the big problem for Republicans. Nothing huge happened. That will affect the votes for all Republicans.
No one can predict the results of the coming elections. But based upon the evidence to date, it is going to take a miracle for Republicans to win the Presidency and the Senate. So, I pray for a miracle.
But my subject is climate change.
So, I will comment on how Trump could have won the Republican elections IF someone had told him the truth about climate. In summary, President Trump blew his opportunity. Here is an analogy to our present election:
There was once a kingdom that had a castle with eight sides.
Each side had a door. When the enemy attacked seven of the doors, the kingdom put up a fight. Observers near the eighth door saw the enemy sneaking in. They told the kings guards. The guards said, “No one ever uses the eighth door, so you must be mistaken.”
So, they did not tell the king.
The enemy attacked the seven doors to distract the king’s army while their special forces quietly sneaked in through the eighth door. Once inside, they killed the king’s guards and took over the kingdom.
The eighth door is climate.
The Dems have convinced ten percent of the 2016 Reps to vote Dem to save the planet from an imaginary climate disaster. (Yes, the polls show that.)
Trump is correct on climate, but no one has told him the truth about climate. So, he argues how the Dem’s climate position will harm our economy. His arguments are correct, but they win no new votes. The undecided voters say,
“What should we fear more, the Dem’s higher taxes or the Rep’s climate disaster?”
Republicans can get 5 percent more votes if they remove the fear of climate change. Republicans must tell the people the only thing to fear about climate is the Democrats’ climate lie. Had Republicans done that, they would have won in a landslide.
I do not blame Trump. He was not at his peak. But even if he were sharp, it was clear that NO ONE told him the truth about climate change. So, if the Republicans lose, it is the fault of those who could have told the President the truth about climate and did not.
Why have our representatives not told the President the truth about climate? It was their duty.
Here is what President Trump could have said if he were properly informed about climate truth. Notice I did not say “should” because that would be a political judgment.
Climate change is an existential threat. The scientists say we are only 8 years away from the point of no return. It is our moral obligation to stop our carbon emissions as soon as we can. My program will get America to net zero carbon emissions by 2025. My program has been reviewed and approved by environmental groups and scientists.
Your environmental groups and scientists are not experts on the cause of climate change. They are “effects” scientists. That assume they know the cause.
There are thousands of “cause” scientists who study the causes of climate change. And they say our carbon emissions do not change the climate. They say nature changes the climate.
True climate science shows we cannot stop climate change by stopping our carbon emissions any more than the Aztecs could make it rain by cutting out beating hearts and rolling decapitated heads down the temple stairs.
You, Joe, want to cut out the beating heart of America … because you believe in the pseudoscience that our carbon emissions control the climate.
First, even IF you were correct that our carbon emissions control the climate, your program to stop climate change is irrational, immoral, and ineffective.
Economist Bjorn Lomborg – who believes your climate myth – calculates in his book False Alarm that no amount of money spent on trying to control global temperature would have any measurable effect. He says we should adjust to climate change because adjusting is far more economical and moral than trying to prevent climate change.
Lomborg shows that for less than $100 billion per year – a fraction of the amount you want to spend on climate – we can lift the world’s 650 million extremely poor people out of their extreme poverty. This makes your program to spend trillions of dollars to stop climate change, immoral.
Second, the scientists who study the cause of climate change have shown our carbon emissions have little effect on the carbon dioxide level. Therefore, if we stop all human carbon emissions, we could not reduce the carbon dioxide level more than an insignificant amount.
Third, data show that changes in temperature come before changes in carbon dioxide. Yet your climate program is based upon the invalid idea that changes in carbon dioxide change temperature. Joe, your “effects” scientists have their cart before their horse.
It is your moral obligation to review the findings of the “cause” scientists before you go ballistic and decapitate America with your climate change pseudoscience.
Fourth, are you aware that all your climate alarmist claims are based upon the core climate theory of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC? Do you even know what that core theory is?
I thought so. You know zip about climate science. And this is not even the science stuff. So, you are incapable of running America.
The IPCC core theory is “the natural carbon dioxide level stays constant at 280 parts per million or ppm.”
All climate alarmism is based upon that core theory. All the scientists you reference ASSUME this core theory is true. But IPCC’s own data prove this core theory is false. Therefore, all climate claims by your scientists are invalid. More than invalid, they are a fraud.
There is no climate disaster.
There is no climate emergency. There is no need to “capture” our carbon emissions. Our carbon emissions are not a threat to the planet.
A vote for you is a vote to destroy America over the climate lie that our carbon emissions cause all the rise in carbon dioxide above 280 ppm, that this rise increases global temperature, and this temperature increase is dangerous. You believe in baloney science. All three steps of your baloney science are wrong.
A vote for you is like the Aztec’s voting for their priests. Like the Aztec priests, you will take America down.
A vote for me is a vote for climate sanity. A vote for me is a vote to make America great again.
