'Climate change' has become the stalking horse for socialism

Michael Knowles:
The purpose of these predictions is not to warn you, it's not to predict what's actually going to happen. It is to create a panic and then get us socialism by the backdoor. This sounds almost conspiratorial. If I didn't have a video, I guess you wouldn't have to believe me, but it just keeps happening. All the predictions from the late 60s, to the 70s, to the 80s. The whole world is going to end in 10 years if you don't give us socialism and then what happens? Ten years go by and the world doesn't end and everything's perfectly fine and the predictions are all wrong. And they tell us, no, but it's really going to end in 10 years if you don't give us socialism. It's all about taking control of your property, of your liberty, of your government.

They say this environmental catastrophe that's going to destroy the world, just coincidentally, requires that you have to give the political left every single policy they've wanted for a hundred years. That's the only way to solve it and save the world.

The Left has always done this. This is nothing new. This is not some cool new futuristic idea out of Silicon Valley. The Left has said this forever. The early socialists and communists from one hundred to a hundred fifty years ago, they said that they had discovered the science of history. They used this phrase, "the science of history." This is the famous reporter, Lincoln Steffens, who visited the Soviet Union. He famously said, "I've seen the future and it works." There's the future. History is not moved by the individual choices of individuals. It's moved by great environmental, economic forces that we cannot control we're just brought along on the tides of history.

Actually, the modern conservative movement in the United States after World War 2, founded by William F. Buckley Jr. was set up exactly in opposition to this idea. So, you had Lincoln Steffens saying, "I've seen the future and it works." The Socialists saying this is the future. This is the science of history and "get ready, get on board." And then you have the conservative William F. Buckley Jr. who said, in the first issue of National Review, he said, “a conservative is one who stands athwart history yelling, 'Stop.'" "Oh, you socialists and communists, you think you have the science of history? You think there's no stopping it?" I'm a conservative and I'm going to stand here, and I am going to say, "stop."

Meanwhile, NASA refutes one of the projections of the climate change crowd:
Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses

A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.

The signs the Obama administration put up in Glacier Park saying that the icy features would be gone by 2020 are being taken down since the glaciers are still there.  Another Obama oddity on the climate has also been exposed:
Obama Admin Spent $4.1 Million to Link Pollution to Eating Fast Food

Researchers aimed to link air pollution exposure to childhood obesity, failed
