You know, one of the things that consistently bothers me, and has for the length of time I’ve been hosting this program, is this whole discussion of global warming. Now, stick with me on this. I’ve been through this, but there’s a new development out there. We touched on it a little bit last week, and there’s even more news about it today. We have people who believe in — to me — a very conflicting view that they have. On the one hand we are awesomely powerful people. Why, just by virtue of our inventions we can destroy the ecosystem, air conditioners, automobiles, jet planes, who knows, that can destroy the ecosystem. We couldn’t create if we wanted to. We couldn’t create this miracle if we had the best minds pooled into one brain, we can’t do it — and yet using the tools we were given as part of creation, we can destroy it? Unh-uh. I don’t buy it. Even nuclear weapons wouldn’t
On the other hand, after they say that, they proclaim us — and, by the way, we’re so powerful we can’t cut down trees, we might be destroying the cure for AIDS in there, but the tree can’t tell us it’s there. We have to find it. Yet we’re incompetent at the same time. We’re incapable; we’re incompetent; we’re just a bunch of boobs; we don’t know what’s best for us, but we can destroy the environment. So we’ve had this global warming argument, going on since 1975. If you go back and look at a Newsweek cover in 1975, there was a panic story on global cooling. We were heading into an ice age in ’75. Then somebody got hold of the idea that politically that wouldn’t make any sense. “If we say there’s global warming and blame humanity for it, who do we actually blame? Who’s doing all this inventing? Who’s doing all this technological advancement? It’s the United States.” You can’t say, given their theory that anyplace in Africa or central or South America is destroying the environment. They don’t have enough air conditioners. They don’t have enough cars. They don’t have enough factories. No. So what is it? It’s an attack on
Last week and into the news today comes the news that the sun is hotter and has been hotter than in recent measurements the last 60 years. And guess what? Some people are begrudgingly now,
Well, no, don’t give me this, Mr. Snerdley. (talking to program observer) You know, you can start playing provocateur all you want, Mr. Snerdley, the official program observer. Yes, but Rush, you’re forgetting something: “Why is the sun hotter?” Oh, really? The sun’s hotter because of man. Predominantly American man. The sun is hotter because — really? Is that the length they’re going to have to go to? I just say this, folks. I bring all this up because it offends me to sit here and listen to an attack on the greatness of this country, an unceasing attack. It has been going on for as long as I’ve been paying attention. The attack specifically aimed at what it is that sets us apart, what it is that makes us great, and what it is that allows us to share our bounty with the rest of the world is under assault and it takes many forms and global warming and the blame affixed to us is just but one of those techniques. It boggles the mind.
