Pat Buchanan Sums Up Global Warming Hoax

Say what you will about Pat Buchanan, he hits the nail on the head when it comes to global warming:

Like the panics of bygone eras, this one has the aspect of yet another re-enactment of the Big Con. The huckster arrives in town, tells all the rubes that disaster impends for them and their families, but says there may be one last chance they can be saved — but it will take a lot of money. And the folks should go about collecting it, right now.
This, it seems to me, is what the global-warming scare and scam are all about — frightening Americans into transferring sovereignty, power and wealth to a global political elite that claims it alone understands the crisis and it alone can save us from impending disaster. […]
While modest warming has taken place, there is no conclusive evidence human beings are responsible, no conclusive evidence Earth's temperature is rising dangerously or will reach intolerable levels and no conclusive evidence that warming will do more harm than good.[…]
The mammoth government we have today is a result of politicians rushing to solve "crises" by creating and empowering new federal agencies.[…]
Cal Coolidge said that when you see 10 troubles coming up the road toward you, sometimes the best thing to do is nothing, because nine of them will fall into the ditch before they get to you. And so it will be with global warming, if we don't sell out America to the hucksters who would save us.

That anyone takes the hoax seriously is a frightening tribute to the power of the moonbat establishment to lead the gullible around by the nose.

"Guarenteed to kill or cure!" as the snake-oil salesmen put it.

Even a PaleoBat like Buchanan can make sense every once in awhile.

All of you are idiots. Global warming due to man, is no hoax. In a cupple years from now you will find that out for yourselves, but i wonder... At the time you figure that out, will our demise be within sight? If people like you did not reject the idea from the start, could we have altered our future upon this world thereby saving our race from our pending demise?
