Communism and Global Warming

Some times you read an article on global warming and think, forget Stern, forget Gore, forget the IPCC, "we are after all, doomed". Granted, some of the comments on this blog regarding the recent "Global Warming Swindle" also bring on such emotion, but the article below is a goodie.

I have highlighted the "economics".....I have cut the last 3 paragraphs lest you take this aricle less seriously....

The Communist Influence Of Global Warming

Republic , Vaclav Klaus responded in a letter to questions from U.S. Congressmen about global warming. Klaus is a free market economist and has seen first hand the debate in Europe over global warming. He told Congressmen, “As someone who lived under communism for most of my life I feel obliged to say that the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity at the beginning of the 21st century is not communism or its various softer variants. Communism was replaced by the threat of ambitious environmentalism.” Klaus said that this ideology preaches earth and nature and wants a “central (now global) planning of the whole world.”

Klaus said, “The environmentalists consider their ideas and arguments to be an undisputable truth and use sophisticated methods of media manipulation and PR campaigns to exert pressure on policymakers to achieve their goals. Their argumentation is based on the spreading of fear and panic by declaring the future of the world to be under serious threat. In such an atmosphere they continue pushing policymakers to adopt illiberal measures, impose arbitrary limits, regulations, prohibitions, and restrictions on everyday human activities and make people subject to omnipotent bureaucratic decision-making.” Klaus has revealed the spirit behind global warming, it is the spirit of communism by another name.

Uh... No Mr. Benson, it is not. In fact, from a global political perspective, anti-capitalism theories purposed by the communists align directly with the needs of the U.S. and U.K. By limiting the industrial progress of Africa, the spread of AIDS and supporting totalitarian regimes, control of African assets will be easy. The true spirit of Communism is missing, but the ideology is present and extremely malformed.
