Global cooling is on its way and will become ever more obvious in the not-too-distant future.
The political advocates of man-made global warming, and their hangers on, know this now and are desperate to get various drastic, hare-brained schemes set in place as soon as possible, so that when the cooling becomes obvious, they'll be able to say, "See we told you: our schemes are working: we were right: we've averted global warming".
That's it in a nutshell.
As the saying goes: "You can fool some of the people some of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".
Watch out for the financial hardships.
