    Look, I’m not sticking my head in the sand at all. Lee Camp is hilarious and smart and poignant. I don’t agree with him about everything though. Climate change is a big Push-Button for ‘left’ leaning folks and I do agree as does almost everyone that the climate is changing. The problem for me is the absolutely outrageous human hubris to think that in this phantasmally human directed change (in the geologic ‘blink of an eye’ of the last…130 years….), we are the agents of the apocalypse that has been visited in the past.

    60 ice ages in the last 2 million years. 20 sudden global warmings in the last 120k years, most of which involved temp spikes of up to 18 degrees in 20 years. There have been 142 mass extinctions on this planet. (Read:Howard Bloom)

    Enough is enough. Seriously take a step back. Go to the Natural history museum and ask yourself at the end of the journey….Does it end because a bunch of clever self-important monkeys made some funky hydrocarbons or does it end the way it has continually ended for the past 3.5 billion years…..
    Keep thinking….

      Critical mass is critical mass. This time it was self-important pig-chimps.

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. But why not make as much positive change as we can. Why not try to reverse our emissions and actually KNOW, be 100% sure, that we are not the factor in this issue. At least then we can say we tried. Imagine if we are the cause (just hypothetically) but decided not to change. I think it’s worth the effort considering we’re basically talking about the extinction of the human race.

        Liars, Memorandum 200, Agenda 21, Universal Slavery, NASA-NAVY ENMOD through geoengineeering. A global Govt-Corporate takeover where they hold all the patents, technologies, legal regulations and pardons for Obamacare.

        Take a walk down the natural history and recorded propaganda and find the same Corporate-Banker warmongers are the beneficiaries of this fraud and ponzi. Created by HAARP and EMR and Chemtrail.

        Your moment for real clarity.

          ^ I hate to say it but Climate engineering is real (geoengineering) and it has been going on in one form or another since the early 1900’s. This is absolutely the real reason for frankenstorms and the inconsistency in weather patterns. I really do agree with the natural ebb and flow, and that there is a cyclical nature to all this as well, but Geoengineering is the single biggest threat to us I believe. This is a good starter: http://artificialclouds.com/contrails_chemtrails_artifical_clouds.pdf

        Sigh.. when will govt-regulation-lovers understand that it’s the little guy who pays the price, that carbon control is just another form of racketeering, and that the desired ends will not be achieved?

      The real clue to the fraud is in the proposed “solutions.” None involve actually decreasing CO2 emissions. They are either a tax, which is passed on to working people, or a cap and trade market system. In that system, CO2 “polluters” (that means you, air breather!) have to either pay a tax or provide “credits” for CO2 production, that can be turned into “assets” that are traded: coupons, essentially, that signify a 1 metric ton reduction in CO2. The coupons are created by virtue of other parties (or, more likely subsidiaries of the polluters) “reducing” their CO2 production– by say, planting a bunch of trees, or switching from one process to another that produces less CO2. Of course, all of this is determined without politics or accounting fraud, har dee har har. Because, of course, a market system that cannot accurately or reliably value hard assets or the value of debts, will certainly be able to reliably and accurately determine the number and value of coupons based on not producing hot air. And VOILA! You have all of a sudden created an entire class of “hard” assets, these credit coupons, that are traded like bonds or securities, and more importantly, used as collateral for securing debt– thus solving the real problem they are after– the shortage of actual assets to secure actual debts. Here, the coupon will be given value in terms of how much of our wages or real wealth will be siphoned off by the polluters to “pay” for the credits. And good collateral they will be until the “market” decides they are as fraudulent or worthless as mortgage backed securities, and then POOF! A big hole is blown in the world financial system. And that is what man made global warming is about– creating an entirely new class of hard assets out of, literally, thin air.

    No doubt Lee Camp is the new George Carlin. Lee gives me hope for our younger generation, but I think this particular diatribe is a bit out there. I’m allowed to disagree on very rare occasion with such a young bright mind. Tree’s like carbon dioxide….go figure. BTW, hate the intro music. Is it music?

    • HCE

      Glad you mention the intro noises. As if the sound of it weren’t enough, the person talking (talking is the new singing) utters the nonsensical line “Evil man is always transcending” which sounds like the utterance of someone using words they don’t understand.

      • Guest

        Yeah, like the average black person understands the word transcendental. Oh well.

        • tesmith47

          hey, the average American does not understand that word .
          why are you so stupid and racist? are you mad because some Black guy took your woman, or is sleeping with your mom and might soon bey your stepfather ??
