Climate Change,the Paris Accord and Leftist Hysteria(EDITED)

Recommended:Scott Adams (Dilbert creator)wrote a terrific blog entry on the Paris Accord pull out. Worth reading.Betting On Climate Change 

Greg Gutfeld had an awesome monologue on the accord. Watch and read the transcript here Kill it and Dance On Its Grave(RIP Paris Accord) 

Science doesn’t know everything,about everything

Climate change used to be known as Global Warming. IMHO they changed the title to Climate Change because people tended to notice that there were times the weather seemed to be cooler than expected and they dismissed global warming summarily.Climate change isn’t dependent on how the weather is in your area at a given time or to fluctuations in weather itself.People can’t decide that if it’s cooler where i live it must mean that the planet can’t be warming up. The best bet is just  remain skeptical until we get ALL the facts.

Unfortunately the whole debate has made its way into the political realm and we know how that goes.

Right up front I need to tell you 2 things:I’m agnostic when it comes to climate change and don’t know enough about the topic to make an iron clad argument one way or the other.I do know this;we need to get it out of the political arena and the hysterical leftists should probably calm down. They’re hysterical about almost anything they advocate either for or against. You pick  a topic and they are going to go off the deep end about it.

My way of thinking re climate change goes something like this; i want non political information from the scientific community on both sides. Forget Bill Nye.He does not count as a scientist.Not even close. It’s possible climate change is real. So i have questions and they are as follows:

  • how long has climate change been going on?The earth is billions of years old.Is the change a natural pattern? How much change has their been over these billions of years? How far back can we go to actually document climate?
  • What are the causes of climate change?

The topic of the Paris Accord is another matter. First you would have to know the causes of climate change definitively. Scientists would have to determine if it’s man made or not and if man made what it is we’re doing that is causing it. Thus far they seem to have determined its man made(maybe partly man made?)and there are steps we can take to slow down the progress. None of which has anything to do with the reasons our President pulled out of the Paris accord. The main reason is that we get the shaft in the deal and the agreement  doesn’t solve the problem of climate change. It barely addresses it.Frankly it was never intended to address climate change.The big sucking sound you hear is not wind.It’s our jobs,prosperity,economy and legitimate sovereignty going out the window.

(Most of us would like to know if climate change is just a natural phenomenon.Maybe the battle is all for naught.)

I’m Catholic so you have to know we are called to be good stewards of the earth God gave us dominion over. We especially MUST respect life. We’re at the top of the heap.BTW,President Trump does not want dirty water,dirty air and suffering children either.

If you’re following the Main Stream media you probably had no idea.

We are to participate in the social realm as good citizens. The Catechism spells it out for us and it’s really just common sense. Another words,use your noodle.

“Human society can be neither well-ordered nor prosperous unless it has some people invested with legitimate authority to preserve its institutions and to devote themselves as far as is necessary to work and care for the good of all.”15

By “authority” one means the quality by virtue of which persons or institutions make laws and give orders to men and expect obedience from them.

1898 Every human community needs an authority to govern it.16 The foundation of such authority lies in human nature. It is necessary for the unity of the state. Its role is to ensure as far as possible the common good of the society.

1899 The authority required by the moral order derives from God: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.”17

1900 The duty of obedience requires all to give due honor to authority and to treat those who are charged to exercise it with respect, and, insofar as it is deserved, with gratitude and good-will.

Pope St. Clement of Rome provides the Church’s most ancient prayer for political authorities:18 “Grant to them, Lord, health, peace, concord, and stability, so that they may exercise without offense the sovereignty that you have given them. Master, heavenly King of the ages, you give glory, honor, and power over the things of earth to the sons of men. Direct, Lord, their counsel, following what is pleasing and acceptable in your sight, so that by exercising with devotion and in peace and gentleness the power that you have given to them, they may find favor with you.”19

1901 If authority belongs to the order established by God, “the choice of the political regime and the appointment of rulers are left to the free decision of the citizens.”20

The diversity of political regimes is morally acceptable, provided they serve the legitimate good of the communities that adopt them. Regimes whose nature is contrary to the natural law, to the public order, and to the fundamental rights of persons cannot achieve the common good of the nations on which they have been imposed.

1902 Authority does not derive its moral legitimacy from itself. It must not behave in a despotic manner, but must act for the common good as a “moral force based on freedom and a sense of responsibility”:21

A human law has the character of law to the extent that it accords with right reason, and thus derives from the eternal law. Insofar as it falls short of right reason it is said to be an unjust law, and thus has not so much the nature of law as of a kind of violence.22

1903 Authority is exercised legitimately only when it seeks the common good of the group concerned and if it employs morally licit means to attain it. If rulers were to enact unjust laws or take measures contrary to the moral order, such arrangements would not be binding in conscience. In such a case, “authority breaks down completely and results in shameful abuse.”23

1904 “It is preferable that each power be balanced by other powers and by other spheres of responsibility which keep it within proper bounds. This is the principle of the ‘rule of law,’ in which the law is sovereign and not the arbitrary will of men.”24

“Human society can be neither well-ordered nor prosperous unless it has some people invested with legitimate authority to preserve its institutions and to devote themselves as far as is necessary to work and care for the good of all.”15

By “authority” one means the quality by virtue of which persons or institutions make laws and give orders to men and expect obedience from them.

It’s easy to sum up.We’re to be good Catholics,good citizens and good stewards.[I’m trying.]
