It's not just about the climate

Vaclav KlausA majority of Not Evil Just Wrong's mission is to investigate scientific data and test it against the claims made by environmental alarmists, but there is another aspect of the climate debate—personal freedom. 

It is a question of whether the government should have the power to cut off access to energy.  The answer is a resounding "no."  Developed and developing countries alike need to have access to cheap and dependable energy in order to create jobs, prosperity, and good health. 

Václav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, who has survived under communist rule delivered this same message at a recent Club for Growth conference.

"My lifelong experience tells me that I have to start protesting very loudly when someone tells me: "Don't trust the market, trust me and us."  The theory of climate control, is as irrational, arrogant and pretentious as the communist planning that people like me were objects of for so many years," said Klaus.

The question can only be about the science.

If the alarmists turn out to be correct (which I seriously doubt they will) and they are able to formulate an actual workable response (which I seriously doubt the could) then we would have no choice. Personal freedom would then have to take a back seat. To advocate otherwise would be irresponsible. Not Wrong, Just Evil.

A direct note to any alarmists reading this. You are a very long way from proving your case. Each day, more and more of your arguments turn out to be either fabricated, inflated, based on spurious evidence, designed to fit your preconceived view, political rather than scientific, or plainly just wrong through ineptitude.

I don't think personal freedom has a very well understood meaning these days. What is often lacking is the notion of personal choice and personal responsibility. Government see personal freedom as having the state provide. This is a sort of freedom but is the freedom of the nursery. Personal freedom is certainly not a free-for-all. In fact being free may bring with it problems and even hardships. Freedom may in fact only really appeal to the morally strong and the self-reliant. For others it could well be a frightening prospect.
