Contrary to popular belief, George Orwell lives.
Okay, technically the author of 1984 passed to the great beyond in 1950 but Orwellian thought lives and thrives in the persons of Al Gore and his fellow global warmists who employ Orwell’s “Newspeak” whenever necessary, i.e., whenever reality gets in the way of their propaganda.
As the Northeast shivers, as Montana sets a new record low temperature, (-31 degrees), as snow hit semi-tropical New Orleans, neverÂ is heard a discouraged word from the Gorewarmists.Â They attributeÂ the freezeÂ not to the oncoming winter solstice when things tend to get cold in the Northern Hemisphere but to, what else, global warming:Â http://apnews.myway.com/article/20081214/D952LKP00.html.
Classic Newspeak or Doublespeak, take your pick, or language and interpretation distorted to serve ideological goals rather than the accepted purpose of language, to communicate.
You can almost feel Gore’sÂ sweat in the increasingly-panicked tone of the rhetoric being spewed from the warmists’ new acolyte, President-elect Barack Obama,Â Â “The time for delay is over; the time for denial is over . . .We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now that this is a matter of urgency and national security and it has to be dealt with in a serious way.”Â
He is supported by one scientist who warns of a natural Armageddon, “We are out of time . . . Things are going extinct.”Â Â Meanwhile,Â from Reality Land, this report on thousands of new species ofÂ flora and fauna, from plants to mammals, to insects, to frogs, to fish, being discovered in Asia:Â http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/3761269/Spider-as-big-as-a-plate-among-scores-of-new-species-found-in-Greater-Mekong.htmlÂ
Mr. Obama, quite the opposite of what the global warmists preach is true, which rendersÂ their words and your wordsÂ as prime examples of Newspeak.Â We all don’t believe in the poppycock propaganda and all the scientists have not been telling us that for years now, indeed far from all.
See “Global Warming Fraud,” December 10th, which exposes the truth that 650 international scientists strongly disagree, as opposed to 52 United Nations’ scientist-lackeys who promote the idea.Â That article goes on to expose the cockamamieÂ plans of the U.N. mad scientists who would tamper with nature, with the Earth, and with the sun’s rays and expose Earthlings to untold disasters all to serve their misguided theories.
We’re in the midst of what some people say is the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression eighty years ago, but who cares.Â The warmists are heartened by election of the Obamassiah who will take office in five weeks.Â He will damn the torpedoes from the 650 rational scientists and move full speed ahead to cripple our gasping economy even further by implementing the demands of the United Nations’ zealots.Â
Their panic is real, not because of the temperature, but because of fear that more and more people will listen to the truth that Mother Earth is merely going through a normal, cyclical change.
The MyWay.com article concludes with, “Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year . . .Â Experts say it’s thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.”
That makes sense.Â In Newspeak.
