Top Physicist: Obama Picked the Wrong Side on Climate Change

The climate models used by alarmist scientists to predict global warming are getting worse, not better; carbon dioxide does far more good than harm; and President Obama has backed the “wrong side” in the war on “climate change.”

So says one of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists, Dr Freeman Dyson, the British-born, naturalised American citizen who worked at Princeton University as a contemporary of Einstein and has advised the US government on a wide range of scientific and technical issues.

In an interview with Andrew Orlowski of The Register, Dyson expressed his despair at the current scientific obsession with climate change which he says is “not a scientific mystery but a human mystery. How does it happen that a whole generation of scientific experts is blind to the obvious facts.”

This mystery, says Dyson, can only partly be explained in terms of follow the money. Also to blame, he believes, is a kind of collective yearning for apocalyptic doom.

It is true that there’s a large community of people who make their money by scaring the public, so money is certainly involved to some extent, but I don’t think that’s the full explanation.

    He’s correct that “money” isn’t the only objective. For Al Gore, scaring folks about global warming has served him far better than any other investment and he is, as a result, very rich. But BO seeks power from his investment which he hopes in the end will also lead to him being rich. Both seem to have nearly 40% of their audience behind them … the other 60% have figured out their game.

    It took this long for the genius to figure this out LOL!

    Energy control is the goal! It is not about the environment!
    It is about destroying the free market and capitalism.

    If you look closely at almost every attempt by the left to
    control society it eventually reverts to the control of the production and allocation of energy sources; which is necessary for the redistribution of wealth. (My side gets the energy; your side does not because you opposed my anti-capitalist ideology.)


    A system of government marked by centralization of authority
    under a dictator (Or wanna be dictator), stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship and massive regulation of private business.

    If you attain the complete control over the production and
    allocation of energy you control EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.

    If you think that statement is too harsh; try to think of
    one single thing you do that does not require some input of energy you do not supply yourself. (Hard to identify something?) Now take it one step further. Try to identify who controls the energy you do use daily. In almost every case the government is gaining more and more control over the sources and allocation of energy in every respect.

    The whole “climate change” indoctrination program is to
    enable LEFTIST ideologues to totally control energy and in the process total control of the economy and society.

    Remember this Obama quote:

    “On issues that are important to us, we’re going to punish
    our enemies and reward our friends”

    You can bet the Obama administrations out of control EPA
    will be actively rewarding the allocation of energy on the bases of identifying enemies and friends.

    At a news conference

    Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework
    Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    It is not about “manmade global warming” it is about fanatic
    environmentalists detrimentally changing the economy of the world as was recently admitted by this U.N. official.

    And even more admissions:

    Ottmar Edenhofer, Vice-chair of the U.N. International Panel
    on Climate Change says, “One must say clearly that we… redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy.”

    Harvey Ruvin, former Vice Chair of the International Council
    on Local Environmental Initiatives, “Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective” in the process of implementing Sustainable Development.”.

    Naomi Klein of Nation Magazine, “So when [Commissioner
    Rothschild] reacts to… climate change as if capitalism itself were coming under threat, it’s not because [he’s] paranoid… It’s because [he’s] paying attention. … most leftists have yet to realize that climate science has handed them the most powerful argument against capitalism.”

    Third Annual Conference of the World Association for
    Political Economy in Lang Fang, China, May 2008: “…global ecological sustainability will be possible only with fundamental social transformations and a new global economic system organised on the principles of social ownership of land and other major means of production … only socialism and the global solidarity of all working peoples can free both humanity and the earth from the fatal threat of global capitalism.”

    And from David Foreman, founder of Earth First and director of the Sierra Club, “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects … We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness tens of millions
    of acres of presently settled land.”

    by Environmentalist Chris Williams, Williams says, “It
    is utterly impossible for Capitalism to view the world as a single interlocking system. ” He asserts the only political system that can holistically address the challenges of the 21st century is “Marxism.”
