Warmist Joe Romm: Declaration Of Independence Is Totally Linked To Climate Change!

Members of the Cult of Climastrology have actually been rather quiet in linking Independence Day to “climate change” this year. When in doubt, though, never count George Soros funded Joe Romm out

Is The Declaration of Independence A ‘Scientific Paper’?

Nearly twelve score years ago, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Interdependence:

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Okay, the Declaration of Interdependence sounds a lot like the Declaration of Independence.

By saying that it is a self-evident truth that all humans are created equal and that our inalienable rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, our Founding Fathers were telling us that we are all in this together, that we are interdependent, that we have a moral duty to protect these inalienable rights for all humans. President Lincoln, perhaps above all others, was instrumental in making clear that the second sentence of the Declaration was “a moral standard to which the United States should strive,” as Wikipedia puts it. (WT note: all bold is by Joe)

A moral duty to protect those inalienable rights? Well, perhaps not for all humans, but, certainly all US Citizens and those we allow to legally enter our wonderful country. Anyhow, Joe must be going somewhere with all this, right? After a bit of discussion about the Founding Father’s belief in science (funny, on any other day, Lefties are calling the FFs racists and big meanies), we get to Joe’s actual point

Today, it is the laws of Nature, studied and enumerated by scientists, that make clear we are poised to render those unalienable rights all but unattainable for billions of humans on our current path of unrestricted greenhouse gas emissions. It is the laws of Nature that make clear Americans can’t achieve sustainable prosperity if the rest of the world doesn’t, and vice versa.

He continues on with the Derp

It is immoral for one generation to destroy another generation’s vital soil — or its livable climate. Hence it is unimaginably immoral to Dustbowlify their soil and ruin their livable climate irreversibly for many centuries if not millennia. Yet that is what we are currently on track to do according to a 2015 NASA study — along with many other recent studies.

Let’s return to the Declaration of (Inter)dependence. Ironically — or perhaps intentionally — the toughest inalienable right to maintain is “the pursuit of happiness.” Certainly, the catastrophic global warming we know we face (thanks to our understanding of the laws of nature) threatens life and liberty (see “Syria Today Is A Preview Of Memorial Day, 2030“).

But if we keep listening to the deniers and delayers, if we fail to sharply reverse our current emissions path nationally and globally, then we are headed toward 4°C (7°F) planetary warmingor more by century’s end — with sea level rise of 4 to 6 feet or higher, rising perhaps six to twelve inches a decade or more for centuries, widespread Dust-Bowlification, a large fraction of species extinct, and much of the ocean a hot, acidic dead zone.

This obviously means we have to destroy the current economy

If we don’t aggressively embrace the clean energy transition starting immediately — and help lead the entire world to a similar transition — then the Ponzi scheme we call the global economy will probably be in some stage of obvious collapse by our 250th anniversary, July 4, 2026.

What will we replace it with, Joe? He won’t say it, but, like most Warmists, he certainly wants a command economy, a progressive one, whereby everything is controlled, and quite a bit owned, by the government, especially the central government. Are you seeing a main point in why Hotcoldwetdry is being pushed by Progressives yet?
