“Colorado’s pine forests — along with those throughout the Rocky Mountain West — are in the grip of an unprecedented mountain pine beetle epidemic that began in about 1996.”
It is my personal opinion that Mr. Gee is the worst excuse for a “journalist” employed by our local rag (which, in itself, is one of the worst propaganda rags in Colorado). Of course, within Mr. Gee’s so-called “profession”, the spreading of climate change propaganda is an institutionally mandated dictate openly originating at the top of the “profession”.
Since I have previously debunked the exact same alarmist nonsense from Mr. Gee, I will primarily refer the readers to this series of reviews of Mr. Gee’s previous climate change propaganda.
In brief, I would remind Mr. Gee that even Alarmist-in-Chief, James Hansen has grudgingly admitted that “1934 is the warmest year in the contiguous states” in the entire 20th and 21st centuries. Hansen, of course, only admitted this after being backed into a corner by irrefutable evidence. I would also remind Mr. Gee that there is considerable evidence to suggest that the mountain pine beetle infestations of that period were far more severe throughout “the Rocky Mountain West” than the “unprecedented” conditions which our local propagandist would have us believe.
In the dangerously vacuous “minds” of those who are among the very most dangerously destructive religious cult members ever known to humanity, current temperatures are utterly “unprecedented” and represent a terrible threat to a “Planet in Peril”. NOTHING could be further from the truth! And, Americans, in rapidly increasing numbers, are coming to understand this irrefutable fact. When we examine the peer reviewed scientific evidence, it seems obvious that there were, just in the last 10,000 years, probably MANY temperature related mountain pine beetle infestations which were FAR more severe than the present (perfectly NORMAL, entirely cyclical) infestation.
I am quite certain that President Obama intends to exploit this unbridled climate change ignorance to bring about his Socialist revolution. Once Obama nationalizes our energy sector (and he will), it will be all over but the crying. I am confident that Hugo Chavez is Obama’s idol and we are about to suffer a fate similar to Venezuela (which, like us, elected their current tyrant).
