Why liberals care about climate change, but not abortion

June 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — As a rule, I don’t write about issues I feel ill-equipped to analyze. For years, one of those issues has been climate change, a hot topic for both progressives — who wish to utilize taxes (and what else?) to solve this problem — and conservatives, who are at the very least suspicious of the solutions being put forward. Since Donald Trump decided to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement to great lamentation and swooning on the progressive side, Twitter has lit up with panicked progressives asking a very reasonable question: Why are conservatives so suspicious of climate change?

    I can only speak for myself and say that it is completely incorrect to state that I am suspicious of climate change. I am more than suspicious however of the unfounded claim that we cause climate change and that we have the power to prevent the climate from changing, in particular through the redistribution of wealth from developed countries to the failed countries. I might add that the failed countries are that way due to the people inhabiting and running them. It is clear that the driver of climate change is above all else the sun along with volcanic eruptions when they are sufficient to block out the sun for long periods of time. It should be clear to anyone able to reason and not caught up in hive think along with a knowledge of the history of the earth, that this is the biggest ongoing international scam since man first walked the earth. I should add also that anyone who values freedom and free independent countries must reject this attempt to a one world government; for that is what this is about.

    • It is a huge social engineering scam.

      Liar! The United Nations says the Sun is not a factor in how warm the Earth is!

      Who are you to doubt the United Nations?

    • There’s a reason why ancient civilizations sometimes worshiped the sun. Lived experience informed humans, and every living creature knew by instinct, that the sun was the centre of our “universe” — everything in nature is in sync with the sun. The sun is the earth’s thermostat — it has exclusive control over the earth’s temperature. Nothing in modern science contradicts the fundamental observation known by humans since ancient times, and reflected in the instinctive behaviour of nature.

  • Liberals are anti-science but they do realise that its concrete nature serves an ideological purpose. If something is “scientific”, it is certain and without a doubt.

    How many “studies” put out by the Soviets would never stand up to scrutiny now?

    Liberals contort things to their own ends – abortion, global warming, intelligence. As long as it is wrapped up in the cloak of junk science, they feel like they are winning.

      Of course liberals are anti-science. They can’t even accept the settled science of XX and XY chromosomes,

      ” If something is “scientific”, it is certain and without a doubt.”

      That is one of the worst definitions of “scientific” I have ever read.

      • Let me rephrase: “scientific” sounds certain and without a doubt. One assumes that a conclusion is derived from a rigorous testing process that can be repeated.

        Leftists don’t buy into this.

    When you have it from their own lips that Climate Change is about wealth redistribution, the only thing that can be said is that science has NOTHING to do with it.

    I am so sick of this relentless focus on what a woman does with her body. Get off it, all of you. If a woman chooses to terminate a damaged or unwanted pregnancy that is her business and no one else’s. Just consider the fact that there would be far less demand for abortion services if men kept their little things in their pants.

      Wow; nice job on missing the whole point of the article.

    LEFTISTS care deeply about both issues as both platforms give them simple minded followers and both bring in money to the DNC. Any attempt to stop the sale of baby parts for money or to expose climate change as fraud will be met with full on aggression by DNC
