Seeing the Randy Molton cartoon in the latest Mountain Xpress [Oct. 22] reminded me of how thoroughly brainwashed most people still are regarding the subject of man-made global warming. Of course, people who are brainwashed don’t recognize their pet beliefs as brainwashing: They think their beliefs are well-considered positions.
Even after 19 years of no warming and recent indications of cooling, the nonstop propaganda is still coming from our mainstream media and political prostitutes. Never has this statement by Joseph Goebbels been more applicable:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
It’s actually very easy to understand the fact that man-made Global Warming is scientific fraud. But, in order to understand it, one has to set aside one’s pre-existing beliefs and objectively evaluate information. Most people, once their beliefs are set, will not consider any information that challenges those beliefs.
Seeing Molton’s cartoon about world ocean levels rising makes me want to show him all the REAL science out there that shows the burning of fossil fuels by humans has a negligible effect on atmospheric temperature and ocean levels.
Rather than studying the actual, real-world science, people would rather be comfortable thinking they’re right and anyone who thinks differently is either on the payroll of the oil companies or just plain ignorant. That’s what they think, isn’t it? Most believers in CO2-caused “climate change” don’t even know the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere that comes from humans and what percentage is from natural sources? Nor do they know that atmospheric CO2 does not warm the atmosphere at all.
We should know by now that our mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda ministry as Orwell warned. Look for better sources of information.
