Climate Change is a fad.

I think you are confusing scientific theory with conspiracy theory. They are different. The science behind man made climate change proposes no conspiracy, hence it isn’t a conspiracy theory. The denialists’ claim that the worldwide scientific community is conspiring to defraud the public in order to cash in on grant money and control behavior quite obviously is one.


Here's a good explanation.

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.

Now that we know pollution is harmless, let's lower emission standards, encourage littering and dumping of toxic chemicals in our waterways and serve school kids coal ash on Friday's instead of fish.

Yay! Fossil fuels rock so hard!!!

You can’t just explain it? How hard is it just give the basic outline of the “conspiracy”?
Do so reading and watch various people on YouTube such as Jordan Peterson and Peter Ridd. Then you will grasp the while subject about this man made climate claptrap. In the video above, Jordan explains the gap between figures/data and the passage of time.

Watch Peter Ridd, he'll explain why scientists got it all wrong with the Great barrier reef and he will explain the replication crisis.


Goto 5.35 for that part because I know you won't watch them as it might damage your bubble about man made climate change. And Peter Ridd got sacked pointing out facts!! It's because reality doesn't match your climate hoax, the university doesn't want to lose it's income by not conforming to this climate bullshit!!

I'm going to enjoy just sitting back and watching it dawn on you idiots over time.

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?
Considering every other Rat Brained things the Dems have done in the past ,it is no wonder. Scaring people to death over one silly degree(which is not proven) is just their way of avoiding REAL issues.

Two lies in the same reply. Keep up the good work.
The looser in chief is by far more hazardous to earth than MAD or most any other catastrophic event. Just because you can not understand the science of atmosphere and carbon in relation to heat only shows how you need to deny.

I’ll watch the YouTube tonight, but you’re the one that’s familiar with it and has claimed twice that global warming is a conspiracy theory. Can you at least give the gist of the conspiracy without your predictable snark about how it would blow my mind?

Are you even sure you know what you’re talking about? I get that they may be more eloquent than you on the topic, but please try.

So you can’t answer the question either without descending into nonsense babble. Such a surprise.
