Biodiversity, the Left’s Next Big Hoax

Rebranding global warming as “climate change” won’t keep the dying hoax alive; too many people have caught on that it’s a lie. It’s time for our moonbat rulers to invent a new crisis in an attempt to justify their never-ending war on our freedom and wealth. Biodiversity might work:

With all the shamelessness of a Goldman Sachser trading in his middle-aged wife for a hot, pouting twentysomething called Ivanka, the green movement is ditching “Climate Change”. The newer, younger, sexier model’s name? Biodiversity. …

When I say shameless, I’m talking so amoral it makes the Whore of Babylon look like Mother Theresa; so flagrant it makes Al Gore’s, ahem, alleged drunken “Love poodle” assault on the Portland Masseuse look like an especially delicate passage from Andreas Capellanus’s The Art of Courtly Love.

Liberals will eagerly buy anything with “diversity” in the name without looking at the price tag. The rest of us are in for some sticker shock. Like the debunked global warming hoax, biodiversity involves the insatiably greedy United Nations taking money from you and passing it out among socialist dictators in places like Africa:

Developing nations say more funding is needed from developed countries to share the effort in saving nature. Much of the world’s remaining biological diversity is in developing nations such as Brazil, Indonesia and in central Africa.

“Especially for countries with their economies in transition, we need to be sure where the (financial) resources are,” Eng. B.T. Baya, director-general of Tanzania’s National Environment Management Council, told Reuters.

Baya knows perfectly well where the financial resources are: in your bank account. Comrade Obama will be more than happy to move them from there to Baya’s on behalf of the three-toed bat-winged ground sloth, or whatever huggable doe-eyed creature the media is hyping at the moment.

Climate change had the advantage that the climate never stops changing. Similarly, species never stop going extinct. Only a tiny percentage of the species that have existed are still around today. Meanwhile,

Despite the U.N.’s fear that biodiversity may be at risk, scientists over the past decade have identified new species at an unprecedented rate. The 2008 World Wildlife Fund (WWF) study First Contact in the Greater Mekong reported that 1,068 species were discovered or newly identified by science between 1997 and 2007 — averaging two new species a week. And the Census of Marine Life — an ambitious, 10-year project to catalog the diversity of the world’s oceans — recently concluded, having identified more than 6,000 potentially new ocean-going species.

Information like this will soon become scarce, as biologists, like climate scientists, are compelled to become political hacks in exchange for lucrative government grants.

In case it isn’t obvious that this is a cheesy sequel to A Convenient Lie, Japanese Environment Minister Ryu Matsumoto ominously intones,

“We are nearing a tipping point, or the point of no return for biodiversity loss.”

The dreaded tipping point is once again upon us! Grab hold of your wallet with both hands.

Compliments of Stormfax.
