Why Does Anyone Believe These People?

The Germans walk it back.

Among the most fascinating aspects of the "climate change" discussion is that anyone actually believes the government and government-funded think tanks, academia, media and “scientists” living off government grants. Which brings to mind more than a few questions. These are the same people who have told us:

  • Covid was an Extinction Level Event, rather than a bad cold for those not already very old, sick, and obese that it turned out to be.
  • The Covid vaccine will prevent transmission and infection, two things for which it never was tested.
  • The banking system is sound, as billion-dollar banks collapse around us.
  • The border is secure, as tens of thousands wander across it monthly.
  • Ukraine’s war against Russia is critical to America's national security.

Now they tell us we must transition to “renewable” energy. Why does anyone believe these people?

Under the Paris Accords, trillions have been spent and trillions are programmed to be spent to achieve a reduction in the increase of global temperatures of between 0.013 degrees C and 0.017 degrees C by 2100. Trillions of dollars per thousandths of a degree. That's according to their own calculations.

A government that can’t accurately measure inflation or unemployment or know whether masses of radioactive material are in the middle of a desert, can predict the weather 80 years from now to within a thousandth of a degree? And formulate policy today on these “measurements” that will impoverish billions around the globe?

We are told we must spend tax dollars earned by “non-essential” American workers to fund “essential” government workers giving away trillions of our dollars to third world countries to prevent their modernizing. I mean, to help them fight global warming (by not modernizing).

We are told we must starve the tens of millions of people dependent on food exports from the second-largest food exporter on the planet, the Netherlands, that we must confiscate their farmland and prohibit them from farming elsewhere, in order to reduce "greenhouse gases."

We are told we must spend yet more trillions domestically to reduce our energy supplies, terminate our domestic transportation systems, destroy our livestock industries, turn off our computers, air conditioners and electrical appliances….  i.e. to de-modernize. Or, what?

Suppose we spend this money, sacrifice our stoves, our steaks, our clothes-dryers, our furnaces, our driving vacations, and hot water heaters, and we reduce the rise by 0.013 degrees C. Will they then tell us that the crisis is over? Somehow I doubt it.

  1. Propaganda works. Especially when mixed with fear - real or imagined. Most people will do almost anything to avoid fear. And particularly the fear of ostracism from their peer group. Lop off limbs or genitals, take unproven drugs (legal or not), wear masks that obviously make you sick, believe a government that continuously lies to them, etc. Just look at the voting stats of every Democrat-run city, or the mass compliance with idiotic diktats during the Plandemic, or the results of mass psychosis in Nazi Germany, and you will have your explanation. A scary mix of Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, and 1984 is right about where humanity finds itself at the moment. Perhaps it will pass. Perhaps this is God's new version of the Flood. Or maybe it really is the End Times...

  2. Just about the whole modern Enviromental Movement is based upon Junk Science and Politics that ban on DDT over Carson's false claims in Silent Spring then Ehrlich and the Population Bomb then gore and Earth in the Balance
