Whether you believe in anthropological global warming or not… There are many people out there whom simply do not. A recent address to the Ohio University by Robert M. Wagner suggests that man made global warming is in fact an idea put forward by governments to gain further control over peoples lives.
There are also many other groups and individuals that claim that the global warming lie has been propagated through popular media as a way of uniting people through a common enemy.
The climate change debate was originally made popular by Margaret Thatcher when she introduced the concept to disseminate industrial action during her reign as prime minister of the UK.
Robert M. Wagner of the group Conservative Cavalry, in an appearance at Ohio University Thursday evening, suggested the notion of human-caused global warming is mainly a cover for intrusive government regulation.
“If you really boil it down, [the climate change debate] is about control,” Wagner said. “How can we maximize and centralize the power to make all your decisions for you?”
Wagner was invited to speak by the OU College Republicans as a part of their “Conservative Week” event series.
While Wagner has done these presentations multiple times before, often at Tea Party and Libertarian functions, he suggested he always faces criticism from the climate scientists whom he challenges.
An Ohio State climate scientist provided that service in the aftermath of Wagner’s presentation. “He has absolutely no training as a climate scientist,” said Lonnie Thompson, a distinguished professor in the School of Earth Sciences and a research scientist in the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University.
