Animal’s Daily They Call It Science News

Before we start, check out Part 3 of my North Country series over at Glibertarians.  Once you’ve done that, let’s look at how the Biden (‘s handlers) Administration isn’t nearly as “I Fekking Love Science” as they’d like to have us believe.  Excerpt:

Yes, President Biden says he is a firm believer in climate change, but has he done anything to mitigate it? Not in ways beyond photo ops. The number one source of human-derived CO2 emissions is wood and dung burned for fuel in developing nations. With a sweep of his pen, he could have reduced that and gotten 2 billion poor people on the road to centralized energy. Literally anything, coal, natural gas, you name it, in a power plant would be cleaner and therefore better for the world than individual home cooking fires but he is sticking with the President Obama plan of only agreeing to help poor countries if they use solar or wind. Which is both useless for them and too expensive.

So, yes, he says the right things about climate change, but isn’t doing them. He is instead doing the opposite of what science shows will work because it matches the political beliefs of his party – endorsing solar and wind.

On COVID-19, his results are even murkier but the authors of the op-ed again instead choose to go by what he says and ignore everything else. When President Trump said COVID-19 was a real worry and we needed to cut travel from China, Democrats in New York, California, and in journalism departments everywhere said he was racist. The World Health Organisation, they noted, hadn’t declared it a pandemic. Yet it turned out WHO had simply repeated what China told them to say and Trump was actually right. Eventually the world did just as he had recommended. New York was devastated by the pandemic because they refused to cut travel early. New York City even had a mayor who thought he’d stick it to Trump by telling everyone to go to bars one last time because Trump was making him close them. A few weeks later, the Navy, ironically controlled by Trump, had to send in a hospital ship due to the overflow in NYC ICUs. 

In actual behavior during his first year, Biden was working the phones to get a trillion-dollar stimulus plan that would almost entirely go into the hands of government employees and their allied contractors and dismissive the idea of giving Americans COVID-19 testing kids. He ridiculed it in October and in December his press liaison, Jen Psaki, was so derisive toward a journalist who asked about it that she could have been part of the Trump administration. 

What he was doing was weaponizing science for his political agenda.

The interesting bit here is the burning of wood and dung, which I confess I hadn’t know, although plenty of (blue) states and municipal governments are trying to crack down on folks with wood stoves.  Here, in the U.S., mind you, where the effect would be minimal.  And, by the way, good luck trying to get Alaskans to give up our wood stoves.  If there’s two things Alaska has lots of, it’s mosquitoes and trees.

Let’s be honest, though, this phoney administration – that is, whoever is actually pulling the strings behind this doddering, non compos mentis President – they know the “science” behind their policy is crap.  They don’t care.  The policies they push for appeal to their base, and for whatever reason, that seems to be all they care about right now.  If you doubt that, look at their poll standings among independents.

The thing is this:  What they are trying to use to push their agenda isn’t science.  Science is a tool, a method of examining a body of facts and determining through examination of evidence and experiments a theory that explains the observations.  Almost nobody in government is an actual scientist – and I don’t exclude the esteemed (hah!) Dr. Fauci from that assessment, as he is much more bureaucrat than anything else.  Oh, and I might point out, he may have trained as an internist but hasn’t seen an actual patient since he was a resident.

It’s all about gaining and keeping power for these people.  It’s all about control.  Understand that, and the rest starts making sense.
