Leftists on the March The crazies are evidently everywhere. After 18 years of zero global warming, global climate hysterians have decided that we should no longer debate the finer points of all those climate models that have so completely failed to predict any of this. While scientists have by now forwarded altogether 52 different ‘explanations’ (read: guesses, or rather excuses) about where the ‘missing heat has disappeared to’, a great many people seem to have made up their minds already and don’t want to wait for any progress in what appears to be a science that produces an ample amount of papers, but seems to actually not really certain about a great many things just yet.
Instead they are demanding action, and they want it now. What action? That is not 100% clear, but most of the organizations taking part in worldwide demonstrations over the weekend had the term ‘justice’ in their name, asByron York points out in the Washington Examiner. That is usually not a good sign – your wallet and your liberty are likely to suffer in order for others to be able to properly provide all this justice in your name.
Supported by a cast of usual suspects – various deluded Hollywood celebrities, Al Gore (usually the guarantor of cold weather wherever he shows up, in spite of his giant carbon footprint), socialist NY mayor Bill de Blasio, and a platitudes-spouting Ban Ki-Moon (who apparently heads the UN at present), every leftist issue one can think of was apparently promoted. The ‘climate change’ banner, which they say is the defining issue of our times, apparently manages to unite quite a disparate group of would-be planners.
