I guess we have hit earth day 2017. There area Faux Science marches (aka Marchs for Politics) in multiple cities. So far, it’s the usual far left, profane signs and references to Dr. Who and Krypton on signs and on the web. I suppose that’s appropriate given the fantasy nature of global warming.
It would have been great had there actually been a March for Science, where the evidence was presented on both sides of the issue and talks were given on the uncertainty of the prediction/projections of say the IPCC. However, that’s not really allowed since discussing the science would be (a) boring too many people with very short attention spans who only believe what they read on Twitter and (b) might expose flaws in the theory, thus enraging the anti-capitalists and the Left in general. So instead, it looks like a gathering of poorly dressed, virtually illiterate people having a party in 57 degree light rain in Washington DC. As others have observed, the Gore effect is in full bloom there.
The one good thing about all these marches it is showing that the Left has only marching to show for its ideology—March for Gays, March for Science, March for Lawbreaking, March for Suppressing Speech Not Liked, March for Women, etc, etc. Soon people will just stop watching, or watch and never remember what the march was for. I suspect that’s already happening.
As for earth day, the earth is fine. The earth does not care if anyone marches, does not care if you’re capitalist, socialist or communist. The earth does not care if you burn coal, erect spinning towers of death to make electricity part-time, or if you even live. The earth does not care. Why we gave it a day, I don’t know. This is really “How Humans want Earth to Be” day. It’s about us, not the earth. Honesty would go a long way here. It’s not about the earth, so why call it earth day? Call it “Human Day”.
