The Nation Claims Typhoon was “Message” from Mother Nature

You can always count on Warmists to put the Mental in Environmental.

Can we have a separation of Green Church and State? The Warmist Cult of Global Warming is really violating that separation with its insistence that the planet is alive and sending typhoons at us because it wants banks to cash in on Carbon Credit taxation.

It seems these days that whenever Mother Nature wants to send an urgent message to humankind, it sends it via the Philippines. This year the messenger was Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Yolanda.

That would make the typhoon the most destructive messenger since Mohammed and that pizza delivery guy who ran over three people.

That it was climate change creating the super typhoons that were taking weird directions was a message from Nature not just to Filipinos but to the whole world

Apparently the typhoon is a prophet preaching the cant of Warmism.

And if you think that The Nation means “messenger” in the sense of inevitable consequences arising from a natural order… nope. They mean it in the religious sense.

Is it a coincidence, ask some people who are not exactly religious, that both Pablo and Yolanda arrived at the time of the global climate negotiations? Pablo smashed into Mindanao during the last stages of the Conference of Parties (COP 18), in Doha last year.

Believing that a typhoon happens to pressure a global warming conference is religious. It’s the Cult of Global Warming.

Now I believe in Freedom of Religion. If you think that the planet is sending typhoons to demand that governments start buying carbon credits, well your religion is stupid and silly, but you have the right to believe in it.

What you don’t have the right to do is impose your religion on everyone else.

Government funding for Warmism is a violation of Church and State. Warmist indoctrination in schools turns them into religious schools.

Environmentalists have the right to believe in any superstition they like, including Nature (capital N) sending typhoons to kill thousands of people because it’s angry about how often you exhale and the flatulence of the cows you eat, but they don’t have the right to make their crazy creed into a state religion.

And that’s what they’re doing.

To reinforce Haiyan’s message, Commissioner Naderev Sano, the top negotiator for the Philippines in Warsaw, went on a hunger strike when the talks began.

Finally, someone who can understand the language of typhoons.

    “Can we have a separation of Green Church and State?” Excellent!

    The warmists, who love to tell conservatives that we don’t understand science, can’t seem to grasp a very simple principle in nature, just about everything runs in cycles. The weather is one of the most obvious. Well, except to warmists. There is another cycle in nature, it’s human stupidity and it seems to be running at an all time high.

    WATCH the videos,When the hurricane was first developing in the ocean,THE watchers said HARRP was creating a high power hurricane and then steared it right into the philipine islands,THIS was the US AIR FORCE HARRP weather machine that did this,and THEY can be sure, GOD was watching them do it TOO,the suffering AMERICA,has brough on the world will soon be experianced by every person in america……………………..

      Was that in The Nation too?

    We’re devolving a couple of thousand of years. For so long we’ve known that the weather was a lifeless, uncontrollable force, and nothing we did could change it. We accepted cyclones, and fires and drought and all of the other forces of nature as just that, natural occurrences with no malice and as things that could not be stopped. Yet now we’ve gone back to the days where the weather was some scary deity, and have started thinking that we ‘control’ it, and that it responds negatively to our actions. Thousands of years of basic knowledge has been lost on these people. It’s only a matter of time before we start sacrificing virgins to the weather gods to stop storms and break droughts.

    You call it Warmism, Daniel. I call it animism, a primitive form of religion, which attributed human and/or G-d like qualities to natural disasters; popular about 1500 years ago. The Druids, ancient Britons, were animists; they practiced human sacrifice. The Warmists do that too, but only indirectly. That is, human interests are dead last on their list; subject to the various species they claim are being exterminated by humans. But they have nothing to say about August 24, 1814; the day the British burned Washington; when there was a tornado(in the District of Columbia) and a hurricane immediately afterwards. I guess James Madison forgot to tell the British not to leave such a big carbon footprint.

    You’re ignoring the fact that it was real scientists that called our attention to climate change initially. These are the same people who brought us nuclear energy, X-rays, medical break-throughs, etc., etc. These folks have no philosophical axes to grind – they simply report what they discover. You trivialize climate change by associating “environmentalist” and “Warmists” with it but the fact is our climate is changing.

      “[N]o philosophical axes to grind”? Male bovine excrement. If that were the case they wouldn’t be throwing around terms like “denialist” (implying a connection to Holocaust deniers in a cheap appeal to emotion intended to drown out rational thinking), insisting that “the science is settled” and thus isn’t up for debate any longer when science is NEVER settled (dogma, on the other hand, settles quite quickly, as it has with many of the proponents of man-made global warming), or treating “consensus” as scientific fact like science were an issue of popular voting (setting aside that there are many out there who do NOT agree with AGW, and they’re not the ones with degrees in Lesbian Underwater Basketweaving).

      Yes, the climate is always changing (hence the current lack of dinosaurs and dragonflies several feet long, for example), but that’s not what the AGW supporters are arguing, and claiming otherwise is disingenuous at best, if not outright intentionally fraudulent.

      And, for the record, those who are supporting AGW are NOT those who “brought us nuclear energy, X-rays, medical break-throughs, etc., etc.”. The scientists responsible for much of that are dead. If they weren’t, I’m sure they’d be shaking their heads in dismay at how thoroughly “science” has been manipulated by political hacks seeking to control the masses.
