Global Warming Debate is Not Open for Debate

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 1, 2017

We live in a time where open debate is not tolerated on important issues facing society. This is especially true of intellectual elitists who respond to questions relating to their core beliefs as if they were personal attacks. There is no better example of this unintellectual and unscientific approach than with the subject of global warming.

Proponents in the belief that contemporary climate change is the result of man’s use of carbon-based fuels often shut down any debate of the issue by saying it is “settled science”. While many in the scientific community conclude this, the science is not settled. The science that these people refer to is based on modeling that can only be as good as the assumptions used in them. The models needed to predict long-term Climatic events are highly complex and must be tortuously simplified to be usable and therefore subject to the discretion of those choosing the inputted variables.

Bill Nye is known as the “Science Guy” who has written books introducing science to children. While his degree is in mechanical engineering, he purports to be an expert on climate change. During a recent interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News, Nye made a highly emotional argument that man is responsible for contemporary climate change. When Carlson attempted to have Nye back his conclusion up with precise figures relating to man’s responsibility, Nye equivocated, bringing into question his actual scientific knowledge.

Nye has stated in the past that jail might be appropriate for people who disagree with his view on the cause climate change. That sounds eerily similar to how scientific dissenters were handled by the church hundreds of years ago. Nye’s emotional outburst at the end of the video below, where he goes off the rails concerning the Trump Administration shows a zealotry that is not worthy of scientific discussion.

Liberal’s Meltdown Since Trump Election

Posted by Steve Markowitz on December 18, 2016

Since Donald Trump’s election, the liberal Left has been in a downward spiral.  Immediately following the election the Left was in shock and acted in a respectable manner.  Hillary Clinton graciously conceded and suggested that the President-elect be given time to work on behalf of the People.  Barack Obama gracious statements included offering his office’s full cooperation in the transition of power.  In the five weeks since, the liberal Left has been in full attack mode.

First, Green Party candidate Jill Stein asked for vote recounts in various states even though she received few votes during election.  This effort had the tacit support of Hillary Clinton’s team.  When that effort failed, the Russian-backed computer issue took over.  While there is clear evidence of Russian hacking that was known before the election, the liberal Left attempted to create a nexus between that hacking and the election’s outcome.  However, there is absolutely no evidence to support this narrative.

The liberal Left is persistent.  Now, their attempt to nullify the will of the People is focused on convincing Electors to ignore the vote outcomes in their states.  While this effort will fail, the tactic nevertheless indicates a distain for the Democratic process and Constitution.  Prior to the election, when the Left was convinced of Hillary’s inevitable victory, their related focus was on whether Trump would accept the will of the People when he lost.  Their approach since demonstrates the Left’s hypocrisy.

The Left’s derangement since Trump’s election goes deeper than organized political associations.  This has been exhibited by some in the news media breaking down in tears, college professors giving students time off for election depression, and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio offering paid counseling for city workers depressed by Trump’s election.  Families were even coached prior to Thanksgiving on how to avoid acrimonious discussions during the holiday dinner.

This week Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewed Kurt Eichenwald, senior Newsweek writer, concerning his reporting of Trump.  The exchange, included in the video below, is a poster child for Leftist derangement.

Carlson raised an Eichenwald tweet in which the Newsweek reporter indicated that Trump had a nervous breakdown and was “institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990.”  Carlson asked a yes or no question as to whether Trump was ever institutionalized.  Not only wouldn’t Eichenwald’s answer, but he is response devolved into derangement with the Newsweek senior writer seemingly losing connection with reality.

It is understandable that those who voted for Hillary Clinton are disappointed with the election.  However, given that Donald Trump was elected and will become the next President of the United States, the derangement has developed is irrational.  It also is undemocratic.

It is time for all Americans to get behind the President-elect and work with him to promote policies that are for the benefit of the Country.  Should the President-elect propose or promote policies not in keeping with one’s moral or political views, that would be the appropriate time for opposition.
