Delingpole: Exposed – the Liberal astroturfers behind the global warming scare

“Global warming, it becomes clear, is primarily a left-wing political issue, not a scientific one. Green is the new red.”

Spot-on.

CLIMATE alarmists don’t care about the environment or “the science” behind climate, at all. What drives the modern ‘environmentalist’ is power, virtue-signalling, self-loathing, anti-capitalism, Malthusianism, anarchy, control and obscene amounts of public money for those with skin in the game.

ANTHROPOGENIC “climate change”, and the control of carbon dioxide (energy) has deep roots in a radical, yet gravely misguided campaign to reduce the world’s population, IMO.

A misanthropic agenda engineered by the environmental movement in the mid 1970’s, who realised that doing something about “global warming” would play to quite a number of its social agendas.

A look behind the curtain shows climate-related campaigning is sometimes just a front for the machinations of American party politics, the goal being to undermine the Trump agenda.

In order to drain the swamp, President Trump must first destroy the global warming Green Blob, says James Delingpole at Breitbart News.

This is the only logical conclusion to be drawn from a series of data leaks and Freedom of Information (FOI) revelations exposing the relationship between left wing campaigners and the great climate change scam.

Global warming, it becomes clear, is primarily a left-wing political issue, not a scientific one. Green is the new red.

These leaks show how rich liberal backers—left-wing institutions like the Rockefeller Foundation, eco hedge-fund billionaires like Tom Steyer, and the various socialistic Geek Emperors of Silicon Valley—are funneling millions of dollars into sock-puppet environmental organizations both to undermine Trump’s economic agenda and to finance his…

Leftist NZ Prime Minister makes moves to destroy Kiwi economy

Ahhh, the virtue-signalling champagne socialists. Can’t help themselves, especially when it comes to “Saving The Planet”!

Looks like the NZ people had it too good under conservatism.

Strange how people become tired of boring – growth, freedom and prosperity delivered to their front doors by conservative governments.

UPDATE:

Is the new Leftist NZ PM so isolated as not to read of the disastrous consequences of going down the unreliable-energy, wind/solar path. Energiewende has destroyed Germany’s industrial heartland and is near implosion. And South Australia – blackout capital of the world with officially THE highest power prices in the world thanks to their mad obsession with renewables.

Early this month, New Zealand’s Labour Party took power thanks to a power-sharing agreement Labour and Green parties with the nationalist, populist New Zealand First party. Aside from being the country’s youngest Prime Minister in almost 200 years, Jacinda Arden is already outlining plans to commit civilizational suicide by joining with countries such as France, Great Britain, Germany and India in their quest to end use fossil fuels.

Newshub reports that Jacinda Arden has announced that this year might be the last that block offers will be made for petroleum exploration. A block offer is a permit issued annually by New Zealand’s government that allows petroleum companies to explore for and extract petroleum and natural gas in certain onshore and offshore areas around the island. Arden is quoted as saying:

It is a process for New Zealand to acknowledge that our future is not in fossil fuels – but we…

1970’s Climate Hysteria : Global Cooling – The Coming Ice Age

Time and GC.jpg

DEEP within human nature there are certain types of people who yearn for catastrophe, they yearn to have significance in their lives believing that theirs is the time when the chickens are coming home to roost and everything is going to go tits up.

THE biggest selling environmental books in history, predict the mass destruction of the planet. Rachel Carson’s 1962 international bestseller “Silent Spring” predicted mass cancer from plant pesticides and DDT. Paul Ehrlich’s “The Population Bomb” 1968, argued on malthusian lines that population explosion would mean mass starvation around the world. People buy this stuff. They lap it up and books like this sell in droves, in a way that more reasonable books that say “hang on, lets look at the facts”, don’t.

The New American: “New Film Exposes Communist Roots of “Sustainability” Agenda”

Sustainability is Malthusianism for the 21st Century | Climatism

ATMOSPHERIC Physicist, MIT Professor of Meteorology and former IPCC lead author Richard S. Lindzen, knows the politics and ideology behind the CO2-centricity that beleaguers the man-made climate change agenda. His summary goes to the very heart of why Carbon Dioxide has become the centre-piece of the ‘global’ climate debate:

“FOR A LOT of people including the bureaucracy in Government and the environmental movement, the issue is power. It’s hard to imagine a better leverage point than carbon dioxide to assume control over a society. It’s essential to the production of energy, it’s essential to breathing. If you demonise it and gain control over it, you so-to-speak, control everything. That’s attractive to people. It’s been openly stated for over forty years that one should try to use this issue for a variety of purposes, ranging from North/South redistribution, to energy independence, to God knows what…”
•••
“CO2 for different people has different attractions. After all, what is it? – it’s not a pollutant, it’s a product of every living creature’s breathing, it’s the product of all plant respiration, it is essential for plant life and photosynthesis, it’s a product of all industrial burning, it’s a product of driving – I mean, if you ever wanted a leverage point to control everything from exhalation to driving, this would be a dream. So it has a kind of fundamental attractiveness to bureaucratic mentality.

And, BEWARE those sweet-sounding words designed by the UN’s deep-green, Agenda 21 program :

– “Sustainability” and
– “Smart Growth”

Bjorn Lomborg: Earth Hour is bad for the poor

DURING “Earth Hour”, I was thinking about the 1.3 billion people who have no access to electricity, at all.

How insane they must think we are, actually celebrating the turning off of life-supporting electricity?!

Lomborg is spot-on noting, “Earth Hour is largely celebrated in rich, urban areas. Around the world, there are around 1.3 billion people living in the developing world who will not get a choice whether to participate or not. That’s because they will be living without reliable electricity on Saturday night, just like they do every other night.”

Such symbolic eco-gestures by wealthy, first-world, urban eco-elites represent eco-narcissism and virtuous sanctimony on a truly deplorable, selfish and naive scale.

Green Jihad

Since Earth Hour occurred today, environmental skeptic Bjorn Lomborg weighed in on the event with an op-ed published in USA Today. In it he states that not only is Earth Hour a waste of time but the people behind it ignore the needs of poor people who need more light and energy which is mostly powered by fossil fuel use.

Earth Hour is largely celebrated in rich, urban areas. Around the world, there are around 1.3 billion people living in the developing world who will not get a choice whether to participate or not. That’s because they will be living without reliable electricity on Saturday night, just like they do every other night.

Increasingly, the world’s rich nations insist that these people — the world’s poor — should have no new fossil fuel access. Foreign aid is increasingly tied to renewable energy projects such as building solar and wind…

US Study Shows Wind Power Push to Kill 1.2 Million Real Jobs

1.2 million real jobs lost? All in a good days work for ‘Green Inc.’ et al who detest capitalism and all its trappings…. jobs and prosperity.

STOP THESE THINGS

economics101

Most, gifted with the slightest grip on the basics of economics, pick up on the fact that producers of widgets (and the like) are driven by the prospect of profits (a motive lost on Labor/Green apparatchiks), which, in turn depend upon input costs.

For widget makers, butchers, bakers and the like, drive up input costs and, all things equal, their profits will fall; and their ability to invest in their business and employ people will drop off, too.

Where the item is high on the list of inputs, a jump in its cost may see that business, or even whole industries, collapse; as they end up insolvent.

As just the most glaring example, where the input is electricity, industries that use stacks of it – like manufacturers, miners and mineral processors – have been literally crushed, as power prices have skyrocketed; thanks to wind power subsidies and the additional and…

Paris COP21 : Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about
?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

The (now standard) violence perpetrated by Climate Change activists at the UN’s latest climate boondoggle in Paris, is further proof that Left-wing ideology is the natural home of the barbarian.

The mob violence and vicious hatred of the modern Leftist (Climate activist) exposes the sham behind such preachers of peace, tolerance and ‘climate justice’.

Bertrand Russell is right :

Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power.

A frightening thought is that these Leftist ‘ideologues’ are of the very same tribe that we are to entrust with global energy policy.

Think globally, arrest locally

France puts global warming alarmists under house arrest, having worked out that they’re actually a menace. Just 24 so far, but it’s a start:

French climate change activists have been placed under house arrest ahead of the opening of the UN climate change conference in Paris …

Green groups have described the move as “an abuse of power” but the French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the activists were suspected of planning violent protests.

“These 24 people have been placed under house arrest because they have been violent during demonstrations in the past and because they have said they would not respect the state of emergency,” he said.

They must remain in their home towns, report to the local police three times a day and abide by a nightly curfew until December 12, when the climate change conference winds up.

UPDATE

Global warming protesters in Paris show their commitment to a better word by trying to smash police with rocks:

Paris gets the party started #COP21

COP21 violence

The latest last chance to save the world has begun, with just 200+ arrests so far.

Here we go again, the biggest names in the political and climate world are gathering to pretend that they are intent on saving the world again. Quite simply the Oscars of virtue signalling.

Yet its is (almost) set in stone that this conference is set to fail in its primary objective. That is, to force rich countries to quietly destroy their economies and for the poor economies, with the highest death rates, to reject energy & prosperity.

The Pointman has delved into the details of the Bonn preconference conference and assures us this event is set to fail. Meanwhile there is a timely reminder in a guest post at Bishop Hill on the genuine problem of extreme poverty.

What sets COP events out from the rest is of course the side events, the preening, posing, tears and tantrums. We’ve already had #birthmark. Useful idiots tattooing the CO2ppm of their brithday. #Climatemarch, Some people, led by famous people, waving banners demanding: blue sky, stop climate change, stop sea level rise….
