Kerry: Climate change is the biggest WMD of all

posted at 12:51 pm on February 17, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Secretary of State John Kerry took time out of his global travels on expensive jet airplanes to remind people of the evils of … global warming. While Kerry tries to cut a deal with Iran that will supposedly stop the nation’s chief state sponsor of terrorism from obtaining nuclear weapons, he told students in Indonesia that the biggest weapon of mass destruction of all was anthropogenic climate change:

“Think about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It doesn’t keep us safe if the United States secures its nuclear arsenal while other countries fail to prevent theirs from falling into the hands of terrorists,” Kerry told students at a high-tech U.S.-funded cultural center at a Jakarta mall.

Kerry added, “The bottom line is this: it is the same thing with climate change. In a sense, climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even the worlds most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

Kerry then went on to tell Indonesians that their country will get swallowed up by climate change, and call for people to ignore skeptics about the supposedly conclusive science of global warming — referring to them as Flat Earth Society members:

“Because of climate change, it’s no secret that today Indonesia is…one of the most vulnerable countries on Earth,” Kerry said. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that the entire way of life that you live and love is at risk.”

Kerry went on to deride scientists and citizens who challenge global warming’s scientific validity.

“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” said Kerry. “The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand. We don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.”

That must be how science works, right? People declare that a scientific theory is proven, and then silence all those who question it. Wait, what? The scientific method requires questions and testing of theories and models? Who knew?

Speaking of models, the current plateau in warming despite the continuing release of carbon into the atmosphere is going on 16 years now, almost utterly outside the range of AGW models’ potential calculations. That question arose this summer, even before the cold winter in 2014. The rate of warming had nearly stopped after 1998, which challenged all of the assumptions of CO2-based warming, let alone deal with the question of optimum temperature. We still haven’t reached the same temperature levels as seen in the Roman Empire, for instance, nor is Greenland a farming opportunity as it was in the medieval era.

The demand to stop asking questions and testing the theory isn’t science-based; it’s political. The more that politicians demand that people stop questioning their use of the hypotheses of AGW for their preferred policies of top-down control of energy production, the more obvious those politics become.

“Science is not a consensus discipline. It depends on skeptics questioning every hypothesis, every theory and every model until all rational challenges are satisfied. Any endeavor that must prove itself by appealing to consensus or demeaning skeptics is not science. Why do some proponents of climate alarm dismiss critics by implying they are like Holocaust deniers? Presumably most climatologists disapprove of these unscientific tactics, but too few speak out against them.”

-Astrophysicist Donald C. Morton

Bat Chain Puller on February 17, 2014 at 1:02 PM

My goodness….

Hey lefties: climates do indeed change! The anomaly would be a zero grade fluctuation. Why does this necessitate alarm? It’s so bizarre.

And by the way, to even know if we are going too much in one direction, should we not have a reference point? In other words, what should the temperatures be?

Secretary Kerry needs a vacation. I suggest that he take a nice, long, non-polluting windsurfer ride to Mahtha’s Vineyid topless in his sexy Speedo’s and enjoy all that global warming. He’ll also have a shovel-ready project trying to find his windsurfer !!!

Well said, Ed.

Advocates of progressivism’s top-down control of EVERYTHING, faced with the challenges of convincing people to embrace their agenda, turned to creating a case for their solutions via academic and scientific fraud – creating a meme to justify the desired solution.

It’s never been about real science or real scientific methods as Ed also notes very well. The desired political agenda is all about tyranny – and that’s why they don’t hesitate to employ the tactics of tyranny to intimidate those who oppose that agenda.

When your foreign policy and national security teams are led by Barack Obama, John Kerry, John Clapper, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers – it’s no surprise that our friends and allies are dismayed, our enemies enthusiastic and empowered, and we’re pretty much seen as a paper tiger / joke.

And when a pompous arrogant dimwit like John Kerry compares ‘climate change’ to being a WMD – does that mean he’s advocating going after climate change like we’re going after stopping Iran’s WMD efforts?

Even if this asinine comparison, he can’t get it right.

Athos on February 17, 2014 at 1:20 PM

Yes. A slightly warmer average global temperature is much more of a threat than passenger planes flying into buildings filled with people. Or having one’s head severed. Or bombing innocent civilians, including young children.

I cannot politely express my anger at this. I just can’t.

obama preaches “global warming” in Fresno last Friday, lying about the drought in Cali, then flies on Air Force One, not on his own hot air, to the biggest green compound in Rancho Mirage, golfs and scrooms around for 4 days, keeps the other pilots from flying, so he can play, in the Mojave, away from his beard…and not a peep, except from Breitbart.

It seems the best component of climate models is the ability to redesign them every month to incorporate data that didn’t fit the original model that supports the same hypothesis.

If only my job were as trial and error but always came up with the same result. I’d be able to pump out ten times as many proposals to clients and always beat my estimates. I’d just have to hand them the revised proposal for them to accept after the job was already complete.

thei3ug on February 17, 2014 at 1:31 PM

If they ever decide that the climate isn’t changing, they will just say that we need the same regime of massive cash-sucking power-grabbing, sovereignty-usurping elite-enriching, transnational bureaucracies to do something about THAT, instead!

But since the atmospheric CO2 concentrations have modestly inched up over the past 15 years or so, while at the same time the globe has not warmed, it is apparent that CO2 is not the culprit that’s been hiding the WMD of climate change.

There must be other, larger factors then at work involved in driving the earth’s many climate zones/systems beyond the relatively puny contribution of atmospheric CO2.

This is what the slavish pop-science believing, non-inquisitive leftists (Kerry, Nye, and the rest) fail to recognize. However, it may be because such larger factors that are actually driving the earth’s climate systems are beyond their legislative control.

If I recall correctly the during the Bush years the CIA declared it a national defense issue. It is also a subject that needs to be addressed at a nation level because only one nation toeing the AGW line will not cut it.

That explanation does not reflect my personal beliefs on AGW. I think that AGW is nothing more than a scam perpertrated by the left to gain control. It is also a massive redistribution of wealth scam dreamed up by the liberals. On the other hand I have to give Gore and others credit for becoming very rich on such a silly scam.

AGW is not a science, it’s a religion. It has its saints, sinners and devils, holy books/films and even indulgences. What more does it need to be considered a religion? Well, it also tries to silence its opponents and it refuses to debate its merits. Plus its founding documents are not open to examination (“scientists” who run AGW studies either refuse to release their raw data or manipulate their raw data to get it in line with what they just know is the “correct” answer.) Now, does any of this sound like a science?
