Default Climate change and the left's narrative

Some people are now blaming the recent weather disasters--including, of course, Hurricane Ida--on climate change.

Of course, climate change is a fact. But that begs the question: Is it actually man made (i.e. Anthropogenic Global Warming--or AGW, for short)--or is it merely natural, and cyclical?

Interestingly, even those who claim the former (and often vociferously) want only us "little people" to pay the price, for change: Why, we should give up our automobiles; but those who scream the loudest are unwilling to give up their private jets.

And, of course, it is only in the US that we--the middle class, that is--are asked to make this enormous sacrifice. China, on the other hand--which has far more people than the US--has labeled itself a "developing country," and has therefore immunized itself against any need for a reciprocal sacrifice.

Let us just say that those who wish to see the US reduced to Third World status are enjoying themselves very much, with their virtue signaling...
