The LEFT is for War.
Super Nova's insight:
World-renownded climatologists Raj Pachauri and his partner, former American vice president Al Gore, both trained climate experts from the University of Sana'a, as well as Nobel Prize Winners for Proven Scientific Discoveries, arrived at a belated consensus that Climate Change is possibly caused by the climate changing. And in case that doesn’t’ work, by Global Warming.
This theory was confirmed by the scientific universities of Nairobi, Karachi, Kabul and Cairo, and the Arab Spring, all at the forefront of advanced science and social progress. Significantly, Global Warming on MARS is caused by industrial pollution. Busy body Martians working 24 hours a day producing Soylent Green from the remains of former American workers who were abducted - explain the dramatic vanishing of the American workforce. For the astounding story see The Washington Times story here:
WASHINGTON, DC, February 10, 2013 — With over 8 million people mysteriously disappearing from the US workforce during President Barack Obama’s first term, experts are working on a number of theories to explain this riddle, the most commonly mentioned reason being alien abductions occurring throughout the US on an extraordinarily massive scale.
Since the economy is doing well, the only logical explanation for 8 million people vanishing from the workforce must be alien abductions.
Spokesmen for the VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY FOUNDATION for DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT, CLIMATE DENIAL and WARMONGERING (see your next president speak about it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI_SqqJIU14)
countered the consensus of one hundred percent of astrologists worldwide, and Al Gore, that decades of Global Warming is caused by the Climate Changing.
Apparently Global Warming has caused the planet to freeze for four decades.
This theory suggests that the ice caps have been melting in some areas and growing in others to an even greater degree. It appears that the planet has measurably cooled for four decades suggesting an oncoming ice age that is being denied by Global Warming proponents. Rightly so, as it is clear that the growth in net ice mass and freezing temperatures across the planet is caused by Global Warming.
Warming proponents financed by billions from foundations connected to Media Matters, Think Progress, Tides Foundation and George Soros, complain that right wing extremists spent almost 5% as much (as warming fans have to promote warming), to deny the existence of global warming.
Accordingly, Global Warming supporters have not only changed the name of Global Warming to Climate Change just to cover any eventuality in case the warming turns out to be cooling, but are also pleased that the public treasury is financing wawrming research through NASA's Muslim Self-Esteem Seminars program while the planet is freezing over.
Faced with inconvenient reports from weather bureaus across the globe – see the references below - former global warming, now climate change proponents insist that climate change is not caused by the globe warming. It is caused by the Climate Changing.
The planet getting colder in China, Russia, Africa, Argentina, snowed-in Jerusalem (that's in Israel, imagine!), and the United States – that is, most of the planet - is caused by Global Warming, say the climate change specialists, not the planet getting colder. All that heat creates ice and Changing Climate may not be due to the climate changing. They say there is nothing to suggest that the path of a dangerously cooling planet has been diverted by reality.
Or the climate.
Your intrepid reporter has no opinion to explain why he could not find his SUV buried in mountains of snow drifts in the Northeast, and by mistake had to dig out three other trucks by hand before he found his home and his wife huddling under three blankets - even though the forced air heat was turned on maximum. He can only blame George W. Bush and the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy for his plight, as well as for every other calamity on the planet. Including the ice covering China, India, Japan, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Israel and Jordan.

North India Cold Snap, Toll Rises to 170
Last week the Indian capital, Delhi, experienced its coldest day for 44 years. Dense fog caused travel chaos with trains and planes delayed.
Reports say more people have lost their lives in the bitter cold in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand states.
The Press Trust of India news agency reported that 175 people had died in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, where temperatures have dipped to below zero.
Four more persons died in different parts of the Uttarakhand as the state capital Dehradun experienced the coldest day in the past 68 years with the mercury dropping half degree below freezing point in the city. "Today was the coldest winter day in Dehradun in 68 years. The city recorded a minimum of -1.1 degrees Celsius on January 11, 1945," MeT office Director Anand Sharma said here.
JERUSALEM (AP) — A Gaza health official says a Palestinian man was electrocuted after being struck by a power cable snapped loose by ferocious winter winds, while a rare snowstorm paralyzed traffic in Jerusalem, its suburbs and the nearby West Bank.

Super Nova's insight:
Igor ShafarevichThe Socialist Phenomenon
TRANSLATED FROM THE RUSSIAN BY William Tjalsma
Foreword by Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
It seems that certain things in this world simply cannot be discovered without extensive experience, be it personal or collective.
This applies to the present book with its fresh and revealing perspective on the millennia-old trends of socialism. While it makes use of a voluminous literature familiar to specialists throughout the world, there is an undeniable logic in the fact that it emerged from the country that has undergone (and is undergoing) the harshest and most prolonged socialist experience in modern history.
Nor is it at all incongruous that within that country this book should not have been produced by a humanist, for scholars in the humanities have been the most methodically crushed of all social strata in the Soviet Union ever since the October Revolution. It was written by a mathematician of world renown: in the Communist world, practitioners of the exact sciences must stand in for their annihilated brethren.
But this circumstance has its compensations. It provides us with a rare opportunity of receiving a systematic analysis of the theory and practice of socialism from the pen of an outstanding mathematical thinker versed in the rigorous methodology of his science. (One can attach particular weight, for instance, to his judgment that Marxism lacks even the climate of scientific inquiry.)
World socialism as a whole, and all the figures associated with it, are shrouded in legend; its contradictions are forgotten or concealed; it does not respond to arguments but continually ignores them--all this stems from the mist of irrationality that surrounds socialism and from its instinctive aversion to scientific analysis, features which the author of this volume points out repeatedly and in many contexts.
The doctrines of socialism seethe with contradictions, its theories are at constant odds with its practice, yet due to a powerful instinct--also laid bare by Shafarevich--these contradictions do not in the least hinder the unending propaganda of socialism. Indeed, no precise, distinct socialism even exists; instead there is only a vague, rosy notion of something noble and good, of equality, communal ownership, and justice: the advent of these things will bring instant euphoria and a social order beyond reproach.
The twentieth century marks one of the greatest upsurges in the success of socialism, and concomitantly of its repulsive practical manifestations. Yet due to the same passionate irrationality, attempts to examine these results are repelled: they are either ignored completely, or implausibly explained away in terms of certain "Asiatic" or "Russian" aberrations or the personality of a particular dictator, or else they are ascribed to "state capitalism." The present book encompasses vast stretches of time and space. By carefully describing and analyzing dozens of socialist doctrines and numerous states built on socialist principles, the author leaves no room for evasive arguments based on so-called "insignificant exceptions" (allegedly bearing no resemblance to the glorious future).
Whether it is the centralization of China in the first millennium B.C., the bloody European experiments of the time of the Reformation, the chilling (though universally esteemed) utopias of European thinkers, the intrigues of Marx and Engels, or the radical Communist measures of the Lenin period (no wit more humane than Stalin's heavy-handed methods)--the author in all his dozens of examples demonstrates the undeviating consistency of the phenomenon under consideration.
Shafarevich has singled out the invariants of socialism, its fundamental and unchanging elements, which depend neither on time nor place, and which, alas, are looming ominously over today's tottering world. If one considers human history in its entirety, socialism can boast of a greater longevity and durability, of wider diffusion and of control over larger masses of people, than can contemporary Western civilization. It is therefore difficult to shake off gloomy presentiments when contemplating that maw into which--before the century is out--we may all plunge: that "Asiatic formation" which Marx hastened to circumvent in his classification, and before which contemporary Marxist thought stands baffled, having discerned its own hideous countenance in the mirror of the millennia. It could probably be said that the majority of states in the history of mankind have been "socialist." But it is also true that these were in no sense periods or places of human happiness or creativity.
Shafarevich points out with great precision both the cause and the genesis of the first socialist doctrines, which he characterizes as reactions: Plato as a reaction to Greek culture, and the Gnostics as a reaction to Christianity. They sought to counteract the endeavor of the human spirit to stand erect, and strove to return to the earthbound existence of the primitive states of antiquity. The author also convincingly demonstrates the diametrical opposition between the concepts of man held by religion and by socialism.
Socialism seeks to reduce human personality to its most primitive levels and to extinguish the highest, most complex, and "God-like" aspects of human individuality.
And even equality itself, that powerful appeal and great promise of socialists throughout the ages, turns out to signify not equality of rights, of opportunities, and of external conditions, but equality qua identity, equality seen as the movement of variety toward uniformity.
Even though, as this book shows, socialism has always successfully avoided truly scientific analyses of its essence, Shafarevich's study challenges present-day theoreticians of socialism to demonstrate their arguments in a businesslike public discussion.
