BIDEN’S FOLLY: Trying to Control the Weather [a.k.a. Climate]

“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” – Mark Twain

“Climate change is sometimes misunderstood as being about changes in the weather. In reality it is about changes in our very way of life.” – Paul Polman

“’Climate change’ gives the Left a ‘moral’ code, a kind of pseudo religion, without the reasoning that animates true religion.” – Hadley Arkes

Climate change is about control of every aspect of our lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness.

I have learned three things about the weather (a.k.a. climate):

  1. The weather/climate changes.
  2. These changes in the weather/climate are cyclical natural cycles (eg. summer, fall, winter, spring).
  3. There is absolutely nothing mankind can do to change these natural cycles.

Biden’s Climate Change Folly

It appears that Biden has taken a bite of the climate change apple. He wants to immediately stop everything we do in our lives in order to “save the planet” from ourselves.

Among the evil things that we Americans do is:

  1. Drive cars powered by gasoline or diesel engines.
  2. Heat our homes with oil, natural gas and electricity from power plants fueled by natural gas, oil, coal and nuclear reactors.
  3. Buy plastic products, which are made from oil.
  4. Use power sources other than wind and solar.
  5. Believe that no-one can change the weather/climate by government edict.

In a National Review column Biden’s Climate-Change Folly wrote:

The “C” in Climate Stands for Control

If you want to take control of any culture you must have a crisis. For Democrats and Biden that crisis is climate change. In a column titled Scapegoating “White Christians” for Climate Change Jerry Newcomb wrote:

California, Oregon, and Washington State are burning—and it’s all the fault of “white Christians.” So says a professor at Oregon State University because “white Christians” are “science-deniers” who don’t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming.

White Christians? How is blaming white Christians science?


The truth is that climate change is neither catastrophic nor man-made.

Rather is is mankind that has created ways to stop flooding, cull forests to reduce the possibility of massive fires, invented ways to provide cheap and reliable power that has taken many individuals and nations out of poverty.

Energy is key to any healthy society. Take away cheap and reliable energy and you have what we are seeing in California’s brown outs.

Killing the energy industry is killing American jobs and making American dependent on either unreliable power sources (wind and solar) or making us energy dependent on other nations like those in the Middle East.

Cheap reliable American power is a national security imperative.

Take away our energy and you drain the life blood of our economy and people.
