Climate Change is a fad.

The US population has always been prone to fads. In 1958 the Wham-o toy company Made a killing on Hula Hoops. Purportedly, enterprising entrepreneurs bent a plastic tube into a circular shape and stapled it at one end. It was a hit; everyone had to have one. The device quickly took the US by storm and adults from coast to coast, ranging from the ordinary to the sophisticated, were fervently twirling and spinning the simple gadget to a fever pitch.

The elementary apparatus ignited a craze that rapidly spread worldwide. What is seldom reported is that while Americans were wildly preoccupied with outdoing each other with their Hula Hoops, the Russians were putting satellites into orbit. Did the Russians play a role in the dissemination of the toy? We’ll probably never know.

That was sixty-plus years ago and up until recently a possible enemy distraction of such massive proportions had not occurred again. But a new player has emerged-human-induced climate change. The ridiculousness of encouraging people to blame their neighbors for the weather is not without precedent. Entire populations were wiped out by other populations in ancient wars to ensure good crops with ample rainfall. All that is needed is a reasonably superficial argument that other people are causing bad weather.

What’s particularly alarming about the fad of anthropogenic climate change is the number of money-grubbing “experts” that have hitched their wagons to it. When experts are being payed to push a narrative, their status as experts is as tainted as the Tobacco Industry’s studies on cigarette use.

In addition, older Americans remember when schools banned Hula hoops from the grounds as threats to student attention. Today tax-addicted Teacher’s unions are involved in brainwashing students to climate change ideology because it will generate taxation oppression of the people-follow the money.

You don’t have to be a genius to figure out that while Americans are spying and dropping a dime on fellow Americans for using plastic straws, the Chinese are quietly and methodically preparing to take over the world. In a world where our grandchildren gaze vacuously into screens made of Chinese technology, the outlook is not optimistic.

We don’t want to make the mistake of trading Hula Hoops for Sputniks again. American social media giants are already colluding with the Chinese to surveil Chinese populations and it will ensnare us as well if we are not vigilant.

Climate changes on its own; the Chinese know that and so should we.

Ridiculous. The only conspiracy theory is the denialists' theory... that the entire scientific community all over the world is engaged in a coordinated effort to trick the world into thinking that humans are causing the Earth to warm.

Truly absurd to anyone who bothered to think about it.
Only 12 more years.

Correct. Over four point something billion years, the earth changes it's climate and it will continue to do so for the next four point something billion years. Man made climate change is a tax scam.
Absolute nonsense. Just because CO2 caused the atmosphere to warm in the past doesn't mean that it won't happen this time simply because it is man made CO2.

What you are proposing is a truly bizarre conspiracy theory—that the scientific community is trying to "trick" people into believing that something that has happened in the past will happen again, and for the same reason—so bizarre in fact that I can't believe you could honestly believe it. I think you're just doing it to be a contrarian. Why would they need to trick the world into believing that adding CO2 to the atmosphere will cause it to warm, given that it has done so in the past?
