Rick Perry, having already demonstrated his meteorological powers by summoning a “black cloud” which destroyed what remained of MSNBC’s credibility, decided to finish off global warming for breakfast in New Hampshire. According to an Associated Press report:
Rick Perry says he does not believe in global warming. The newest Republican presidential candidate also says he would not have signed the debt-ceiling compromise brokered by Republicans and Democrats.
The Texas governor made the comments as he launched a two-day New Hampshire campaign tour. He was speaking at a packed breakfast event with business leaders Wednesday.
Perry said global warming is based on scientists manipulating data. He said he wouldn’t devote federal resources to battling the environmental concern.
The Republican also said the debt-ceiling compromise, which helped avoid a national default, sent the wrong message by spending money the nation doesn’t have.
Note the way the AP phrases this report: “Rick Perry says he does not believe in global warming.” Maybe he also “doesn’t believe” in gravity, or Barack Obama’s magical powers to create jobs. Clearly the AP finds his lack of faith… disturbing.
I’ll bet Perry used somewhat more forceful language than that. Last week, in a sneering article designed to convey the impression that Perry is a blinkered loon for failing to believe in the “global warming” that nobody can prove without resorting to outright fraud, the UK Guardian said Perry referred to their climate religion as “all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight.”
For good measure, back in 2007 Perry – who used to work for Al Gore’s campaign, back when he was a Democrat – said of the global-warming pope, “I’ve heard Al Gore talk about man-made global warming so much that I’m starting to think that his mouth is the leading source of all that supposedly deadly carbon dioxide.”
It’s curious to see liberals freaking out over someone who says he doesn’t believe in “global warming,” because supposedly they don’t believe in that any more, either. It’s “climate change” now. No matter what happens – wet or dry, hot or cold, ice or floods – only the extensively compensated clergy can calm the angry sky gods, and transform their will into law over the benighted masses.
It’s good to see Perry isn’t backpedaling on this. It’s important. The global-warming hoax is the crime of the century. The amount of money stolen by the con artists, or lost in mad attempts to comply with their bizarre religion, is literally incalculable. Countless billions have been handed over to them in funding, sacrificed to comply with deranged eco-regulation, and spent on propaganda aimed at children.
East Anglia emails admitting falsified evidence, polar-bear studies exposed as utter frauds, countless studies conveniently “misinterpreted,” ranting lunatic Al Gore as a figurehead… the con is over, and the perpetrators should be prosecuted. We can never recover the wealth seized and destroyed by these scam artists, but they should be denied every opportunity to swipe another nickel. Every other Republican candidate should be competing with Rick Perry to win that job.
