Letter to the editor: Climate change scam, sacrifice

Scams proliferate daily as we concern ourselves with billions being taken by crooks, while we casually overlook the trillions being taken by globalist bureaucrats in the name of “climate change.”

Their scam originates by scaring people into believing that the earth is in peril by unclear scientific, and often questionable, representations, and that to save it we have to tax everyone into the poorhouse. For the sacrifice of your wealth, the government promises to deliver to you a “feel good” statistic that you have helped save the world. It didn’t cost them a dime, but brought them trillions.

Your family’s monetary sacrifice gets you a meaningless air purity statistic, making you feel like a “good earth person,” while the world’s bureaucrats use your wealth to empower themselves, and their relatives’ and friends’ bank accounts.

Al Gore has made millions, and think about how little has been delivered since this scam started 20 years ago as “an inconvenient truth.” The scam and your sacrifice earn a pat on the back for being taken.

Technology will eventually replace fossil fuels with working economical renewable energy before the earth perishes. Patience will win the day if we quit spreading the fear and political lies that the need for a “Green New Deal” is urgent. America doesn’t have to join the globalist scam team while it leads the world in energy resources.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
