That Daily Caller headlines sums up the global warming agenda in a Twitter-approved 53 characters (spaces included). But in case you need more details, here’s how the article starts:
“Environmentalists have declared that global warming can’t be stopped without ending the ‘hegemonic capitalist system,’ saying that cap-and-trade systems and conservation efforts are ‘false solutions.’
“‘The structural causes of climate change are linked to the current capitalist hegemonic system,’ reads the final draft of the , presented at a conference including about 130 environmental groups.
“‘To combat climate change it is necessary to change the system,’ the declaration adds.”

But that’s what global warming is really all about: socialism. Not saving the earth, not making a difference for future generations or Little Bunny Foo Foo.
It’s about control. Their control, to be specific. Or, to get even more blunt, it’s about their control over us.
When I say “them,” I’m talking about the people who already have too much power but can’t seem to be happy with their overabundance. They want more. They always want more, and inspiring or shaming everyone into “saving the planet” is a masterfully manipulative way of gaining that elusive “more.”
Basically, they’re lying, cheating and stealing for the ability to lie, cheat and steal some more. They’re greedy, and no matter how much control we grant them, they’re always going to demand more from us until we’re sucked dry and dead… or wishing we were.
Capitalism, on the other hand – the real kind, not the crony establishment we’re fostering today – is exactly the opposite. It gives an appropriate amount of power to the people: to the big guy and the little guy alike.
People who say otherwise are lying. Or ignorant. Free markets mean that anyone can pursue their dreams with the chance of making them happen. Socialism, on the other hand, means that government can pursue its dreams. At your expense.
So when Michael Brune, the director of the Sierra Club, stands up and says that global warming “is the greatest challenge facing our generation,” he’s not only wrong; he’s lying through his vampire teeth while rubbing his hands in glee at the opportunity to suck your blood.
Global warming isn’t the greatest threat our generation faces. It’s not a threat at all when it was 70 flipping degrees outside when I left my apartment this morning. In late July.
You could however make a pretty darn good argument that socialism could be the struggle of the century. In which case, yes, capitalism is a threat to global warming.
And that's a good thing!
