Global Warming Makes People Mean!
Preparing for Obama's Carbon Tax
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
"Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests.
scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall
correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group
conflicts and war.
The team says with the current projected levels of climate change, the world is likely to become a more violent place." SOURCE: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23538771
So NOW we KNOW! Hot dang!
Yep! According to scientists there IS a link between higher temperatures and an increase in crime GLOBALLY. Who'd a thunk it?
Greenies are scraping the bottom of the barrel seeking a way, any way,
they can to save face and keep that gov'mint money rolling in.
we go any further, we need to understand that if this "theory" were
true then crime rates the world over ought to be dropping since there
has been no warming of temperatures on earth since the late 1990's.
"The scientists say that with the current projected levels of climate change the world is likely to become a more violent place.
estimate that a 2C (3.6F) rise in global temperature could see personal
crimes increase by about 15%, and group conflicts rise by more than 50%
in some regions." SOURCE: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23538771
Look. Even the Greenies will admit there hasn't been any rise in global temperatures in at least, well, seventeen years.
might be interested to know that violent crime -- right here in the
good ole US of A -- has been dropping for at least a couple of decades
now. Somehow, that doesn't seem to add a whole lot of credence to the
"global warming - high crime" theory, now does it?
that aroused all of us "deniers" was published online recently by the
journal Science. In the article they thoughtfully provide a formula I
call the "Hot/Hit" formula:
"The team of economists even
came up with a formula that predicts how much the risk of different
types of violence should increase with extreme weather. In war-torn
parts of equatorial Africa, it says, every added degree Fahrenheit or so
increases the chance of conflict between groups— rebellion, war, civil
unrest — by 11 percent to 14 percent.
For the United States, the
formula says that for every increase of 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit, the
likelihood of violent crime goes up 2 percent to 4 percent." SOURCE: http://sweetness-light.com/archive/tempers-crime-war-blamed-on-global-warming#.Uf0QHqwpiRQ
you are familiar with the LMAO abbreviation used often in text
messaging then you will understand what I am doing as I write this!)
this report seems sort of familiar, well, back in 2008 a similar report
was made by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute which said
climate change could lead to an increase in crime. The report's author,
Anthony Bergin, deputy director of the Australian Strategic Policy
Institute, predicted global warming would lead to an increase in violent
crime and so called 'climate crime'. Mr. Bergin is quoted as saying: "I
think as water becomes like liquid gold we're more likely to see
examples of individuals stealing water or siphoning from river systems." SOURCE: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-10-23/global-warming-will-increase-climate-crime-risk/551654
leave it up to you, the reader, to place whatever stock in the report
you might think it warrants. As for me, if I had a hard copy of the
report it would go in the "round file."
I think it is just another case of the greenies dragging out the doomsday drum again.
The Global Warming/Climate Change movement has been totally discredited
-- and yet -- the political left has so much invested in it that they
cannot allow it to fold up and disappear. Besides, Obama has yet to get
his carbon tax introduced and passed through the Congress. So, global
warming/climate change "awareness" MUST be kept at a high level until
that damnable tax is levied on the American citizenry.
whole accursed carbon trading, carbon taxing, scheme is a
Marxist/Communist plot ... period! It promotes "redistribution of the
On the website of the World Bank is posted a document that spells it out. The document is titled: “Inclusive Green Growth: The Pathway to Sustainable Development.”
In the article it is stated:
"... some observers, mostly in high-income countries, have argued
against the need for more growth, suggesting that what is needed instead
is a redistribution of wealth.” (Emphasis by underlining is mine.) Source: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/03/21/here-comes-team-obama-carbon-tax/#ixzz2avBytHF3
report in the article goes on to outline how a carbon tax could be used
to drive a massive redistributive scheme such as the one Senators Henry
Waxman and Barbara Boxer, both democrats from California, are
advocating to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
all should be aware that plans to pursue a national carbon tax for
America are very much alive and well in the US Congress and are quietly,
but steadily, making progress.
Not to worry. The President has
made it clear that should his efforts to obtain a carbon tax in the
Congress fail, he is more than prepared to get it done by an Executive

All the talk about higher global temps causing higher global meanness
and soaring crime rates is nothing more than propaganda to prepare you
to accept another tax from hell.
