The Right to Remain Equal…ly Miserable

In case you missed it, scientists have finally figured out what will stop global climate change, and it was right in front of us the whole time. Brace yourselves, because this is a major scientific breakthrough that will help generations to come. To fight global climate change, we need…equality.

Are you as shocked as I am? Of course, by “shocked” I mean “absolutely gobsmacked at the insanity.”

If you’ve read my previous posts on this subject, you know I’m a skeptical about the whole global climate change thing because the real science doesn’t back up the ohmygoddesswearegonnadie rhetoric. To be fair, though, the people who have pushed the latter narrative have only been wrong for the past, oh, 50 years, so maybe we need to give them a chance.

Then, they came out with this equality-as-a-climate-change-solution idea. At this point, they’ve burnt their last chance with me. Anyone who still blindly follows these nozzleheads will get mocked into the Stone Age.

Which is exactly where the eco-Left wants to take us. These folks tell us just about everything from eating meat to wearing clothes contributes to our carbon footprint, so it stands to reason they want us to devolve. Not them, of course. Just us. You see, the eco-Left is soooooo smart that they don’t need to follow the dictates they demand others follow. They’re the “Party of Science,” after all!

So, what does science have to do with equality? About as much as the eco-Left does with either.

Equality isn’t a term that appears in the hard sciences, but occurs more frequently in the social sciences because it’s more of a social concept. Also complicating matters is the fact equality is subjective. Let’s not forget people in this country believe white men have more privilege than anyone else, all while ignoring the advantages given to minorities (and majorities, in the case of women) over white men because of the assumption of privilege. Okay, I’m going to have to sit down for a bit after writing that last sentence. It was a real mind-bender to write.

Okay, I’m back. The point I’m trying to make here is the Left is now using social science to solve what they’ve maintained to date is a hard science problem. Although this may sound plausible on the surface because they’re both scientific disciplines, it’s hard to see how it would work in practice. If I drive a diesel fuel guzzling semi truck 6 days a week, but pay my wife the same amount of money for taking care of the books that I make driving, my carbon footprint doesn’t change, the rate and intensity of climate change isn’t impacted, and the problem equality was supposed to fix remains. No matter how many times this is repeated, the result is the same: nothing concrete gets accomplished. You may feel better about it, but the status quo will be maintained.

What’s the next step? Make things more equal? Give more to those perceived as having less?

Actually, that last one is the ultimate goal of the eco-Left. Hidden within any of their solutions to climate change is an economic component where the rich are expected to take on the lion’s share of the efforts to fix climate problems, whether it be through higher tax rates or out and out wealth confiscation. Why else do you think the eco-Left thinks America should be the one to change its economic system to combat a problem we’re already leading the world in addressing while other countries with less vibrant economies are allow to continue polluting without so much as a sideways glance from the eco-Left? They would rather make everyone equally miserable in the name of trying to control nature than to let anyone try to better themselves and succeed.

At the core of the “equality as climate change solution” notion is an emotional argument using “science” as a strengthening agent. By clinging to an idea Americans in particular hold dear (equality) and connecting it to an idea they’ve been trying to get off the ground for generations (manmade climate change), the eco-Left are hoping you overlook the inherent flaws in the argument and just submit. It’s the same play they’ve been running since the 90s, and they always seem to find new suckers to join their ranks using it.

The thing is scientists can be wrong and/or dishonest. Case in point: most of the scientists and non-scientists peddling the manmade climate change canard. Think about it for a moment. Out of all the dire predictions the eco-Left made, none have happened. And they know it. That’s one reason why they cook their own books, so to speak, to make it seem like they’ve been right all along. Just look at the lengths manmade global climate change guru Dr. Michael Mann have taken to avoid letting others scrutinize his work, even when ordered by a court to allow it. This begs the question of why. If climate change is real, dangerous, and occurring as we speak, the facts should back it up.

Spoiler Alert: They don’t.

And the eco-Left is scared people will find out.

Spoiler Alert: We know, which is why we doubt you.

And now with the new “solution” of equality, we have even more reason to doubt you. Oh, and laugh at you derisively.
