Forbes — It’s desperation time for global warming alarmists. Don’t believe me? Just look at what they’re parading as their best media story right now.
They’re in a frenzy this week, crying “The Sky Is Falling!” in light of predictions by a group called DARA that global warming will kill more than 100 million people during the next 18 years and destroy the global economy. Yes, you read that right – global warming will kill more than 100 million people during the next 18 years!
The predictions are laughable on their face. Perhaps if the head of some respected scientific organization made such claims, we would chalk up the ridiculous predictions as an early sign of dementia and mercifully decline to report the predictions so as not to embarrass the person as he or she checks out of the real world.
But this is not an accomplished scientist or a respected scientific organization making the ridiculous predictions. DARA is an obscure, heretofore irrelevant non-government organization dedicated to guilting people in wealthy nations into forking over money to the rest of the world due to a host of Western Democracy sins, and especially our climate change sins. The problem for DARA is that up until now, nobody has known or cared about the group’s existence. DARA has long been in the lower minor leagues of non-government organizations, assuming there is a lower minor league desperate enough to have them.
But DARA, as irrelevant as it was, figured something out. Make ridiculously unsupported global warming claims and big league environmental activist groups will beat a path to your door. In fact, the more ridiculously stupid the claims, the more street cred you will get with environmental activist groups and their liberal media sock puppets. So DARA decided to shoot for the big leagues and out-ridiculous every alarmist global warming prediction the group had ever seen.
Not that DARA made any effort to mask its alarmist, redistributionist predispositions. At the very beginning of the DARA paper making the alarmist global warming predictions, the group added a full page containing nothing but the words, “Dedicated To The Innocent Victims of Climate Change.”
Now THAT’S an objective scientific study for you!Continue Reading on www.forbes.com
