Of Course They Do: Leftist Science Becomes Marxist Lever

The natural consequences of AGW are now in place:
Poor nations want U.S. to pay reparations for extreme weather

Poorer nations suffering from extreme weather disasters, so much so that their citizens are seeking refuge in safer terrains outside their borders, want rich nations like the United States to pay for reparations and to relocate populations.

Preparatory talks ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures. They want additional compensation for weather-related disasters as well as a "displacement coordination facility" for refugees. And they want all this to be legally binding as part of the larger anticipated Paris accord.
When a "science" has a decidedly Leftist political leaning, it is inevitable that it will culminate in Marxist redistribution of wealth on grand scales. After all, these nations are "Victims", and Leftist "science" is the Messianic lever to enable plundering the Oppressors. It's always a great set-up for grabbing some significant graft right off the top, too.

And of course, it is NOT "just weather" for these Leftists: it is climate change due to the USA. They will not send a bill to China, or Russia, or to the faceless, stressed EU.

The fact is that most poor nations have plenty of money; it's just concentrated in the ruling class. Additional infused funds go to the already wealthy dictators and their cronies. Trickle down doesn't exist in these places.

This was where they unmistakably tipped their hand. And no on the Left said anything in response. No dismay, no 'wait, what?!', not even an embarrassed silence.

Every one of them thinks he or she will be in the catbird seat - come the revolution. They've already talked themselves into being our moral and intellectual superiors... because they said so.

But 'the revolution' will take place, IS taking place, in the real world. Real countries, perpetually in poverty and perpetually churning out children to compensate for their own man-made disasters (Bangladesh), would love nothing better than to take us for all we've got. The Leftists will lose their money along with everyone else. And there goes their exceptionalism, along with every other pretension of superiority, as they discover they have been used by a select few, who in turn will discover their own betrayal at the hands of folks even 'further in'.

But if you cut off the branch everyone sits on, you can use people all you want. It won't matter. You, the Leftist, have been insisting all along that you make your own reality while denying that an objective reality exists. But objective reality says: if they go, you go. You're all heading for the ground.

I suspect this is why Leftists don't like discussing death, why they sanitize killing others with 'alternative phrasing'. It's because some part of them that is still sane recognizes objective reality for what it is. Death will not be denied, subverted, converted to PC language. It comes even to the mentally-deranged, even to the ones who have voluntarily lobotomized themselves with pride in order to claim they did it "their way".

(Their attempts to co-opt death without talking about it result in both abortion and euthanasia, each smothered with phrases alluding to 'choice' in to take the sting out it. Or so they would have it.)

You're right, Stan. They'd never dream of approaching China or India or Russia for 'compensation'. But steal the wallet of a powerful nation seemingly hell-bent on destroying itself and taking as many of its allies with it as possible?

Sure. Hell, they'll line up for that.
