About half of the nation’s meteorologists would have to enroll. A recentsurvey of American Meteorological Society (AMS) members found that only 52 percent of their members believe that global warming is happening and humans are mostly to blame. The survey also found that those with liberal political views were more likely to embrace global warming theories. Study author Neil Stenhouse recommends the AMS “acknowledge and explore the uncomfortable fact that political ideology influences the climate change views of meteorology professionals [and] refute the idea that those who do hold non-majority views just need to be ‘educated’ about climate change.”
The global warming movement may be less a scientific endeavor and more a political game plan for the redistribution of wealth, higher taxation and government regulation, severe limits on oil and gas production, and restrictions on personal freedoms. Perhaps the alarmism isn’t a delusion but a tactic. How else does one explain why the prophets of global warming among the Hollywood and DC elite decline to live the lifestyle they advocate for others? As Al Gore heats his 10,000 square foot house for one on this chilly afternoon, does give a thought to the contradiction between his beliefs, his actions, and the weather outside?
