Psychiatrists in Australia have discovered the first case of “climate change delusion”.
Joshua Wolf and Robert Salo, of the Royal Children’s Hospital, writing in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry say that this delusion is a ‘previously unreported phenomenon”.
"A 17-year-old man was referred to the inpatient psychiatric unit at Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne with an eight-month history of depressed mood . . . He also . . . had visions of apocalyptic events."
Sounds like Al Gore, eh?
"The patient had also developed the belief that, due to climate change, his own water consumption could lead within days to the deaths of millions of people through exhaustion of water supplies.
Here is (Australia’s) Prime Minister Kevin Rudd yesterday, with his own apocalyptic vision: "If we do not begin reducing the nation's levels of carbon pollution, Australia's economy will face more frequent and severe droughts, less water, reduced food production and devastation of areas such as the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu wetlands."
You know what they want, don’t you? They want our money! And they want to scare us with these visions of a scorched earth to get us to buy into this global warming hoax and give up our money for their cause.
And here is a senior Sydney Morning Herald journalist aghast at the horrors described in the report on global warming released on Friday by Rudd's guru, Professor Ross Garnaut: "Australians must pay more for petrol, food and energy or ultimately face a rising death toll . . ."
Did you read that? Pay more for food and energy or die? If it weren’t so arrogant I would find it funny. Okay, I am laughing at these fools, but still.
These guys, Rudd and Garnaut, want to scare people into backing their plan to force people who produce everything from petrol to coal-fired electricity, from steel to soft drinks, to pay for licenses to emit carbon dioxide -- the gas they think is heating the world to hell. They want your $$$!
The cost of those licenses, totaling in the billions, will then be passed on to people through higher bills for petrol, power, food, housing, air travel and anything else that emits the life endangering CO2. In some countries they're even planning to tax farting cows, so there's no end to the ways you can be stung.
What's next? Do we get taxed for exhaling?
Rudd, and all of the other idiots hope this pain will make people switch to expensive but less gassy alternatives, and -- hey presto -- the world's temperature will then fall, just like it's actually done since the day Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth.
So here is where it falls apart.
Australia on its own emits less than 1.5 per cent of the world's CO2. Any savings they make will make no real difference, given that China (now the biggest emitter) and India (the fourth) are booming so fast that they alone will pump out 42 per cent of the world's greenhouse gases by 2030.
So, if the world’s green house emissions are growing -- by 3.1 per cent a year thanks mostly to these two giants -- the 20 per cent cuts Rudd demands of Australians by 2020 would be swallowed up in just 28 days.
Listen people! That's how little our multi-billions of dollars in sacrifices will matter. These people want our money and liberties and their claims that we’ll be dead if we don’t are outright LIES!
Garnaut on Friday admitted any cuts Australia makes will be useless unless they inspire other countries to do the same -- especially China and India: "Only a global agreement has any prospect of reducing risks of dangerous climate change to acceptable levels."
So if this were a real threat, and if it means that we are dependent upon China and India to buy into this and get on board, we’re toast!
A year ago China released its own global warming strategy which bluntly refused to cut its total emissions.
In that report Ma Kai, head of China's powerful State Council said, "China does not commit to any quantified emissions-reduction commitments . . . our efforts to fight climate change must not come at the expense of economic growth."
Do you hear that? This coming from a communist (not too distant from our liberals and environmentalist wackos in political philosophy and tactics)…we will not let our economy suffer in order to fight global warming. Guess what? They really don’t believe in it anyway!
Ma Kai also said, "It is quite inevitable that during this (industrialization) stage, China's energy consumption and CO2 emissions will be quite high."
Just last month, India likewise issued its National Action Plan on Climate Change, and also rejected Rudd-style cuts. The plan's authors, the Prime Minister's Council on Climate Change, said India would rather save its people from poverty than global warming, and would not cut growth to cut gases.
"It is obvious that India needs to substantially increase its per capita energy consumption to provide a minimally acceptable level of wellbeing to its people."
The plan's only real promise was in fact a threat: "India is determined that its per capita greenhouse gas emissions will at no point exceed that of developed countries."
I love this! These people get it! The amount of money spent and liberties lost to fight the global warming hoax will seriously hurt the global economy. And, we will accomplish nothing as far as changing our climate.
India and China are not going to cut their economic throats to buy into this hoax.
Don’t think that our very own global warming zealots won’t try to do the same types of things here. They are doing so now. Look at what is happening in California.
If you want to decrease emissions into our atmosphere then let us build more nuclear power plants. But you libs do want those either.
But at least we now have a name for their lunacy…
