“WE were the cheapest electricity market in the world, and now we’re one of the dearest. It’s insanity that this has occurred in a market that is so well-blessed in resources.”
― Alan John Moran (Australian columnist and Economist)
global warming climate change, and the control of carbon dioxide has deep roots in a radical, yet gravely misguided campaign to reduce the world’s population.
THE climate change scare has little to do with the “environment” or “saving the planet”. Rather, its roots lie in 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 the Lefts social agendas.
CO2 – the byproduct of cheap, reliable and affordable energy – was fingered as the patsy and subsequently demonised, with “the science” tortured to fit the warming theory. Not the other way around as the “scientific method” would require.
STANFORD University and Royal Society’s resident global warming alarmist and population freak Paul R. Ehrlich spelled out in 1976 the anti-energy platform that underpinned the global warming scare:
“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the
equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
– Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University/Royal Society
THE UN IPCC was created as the all-holy authority on climate change “science” by Maurice Strong’s UNEP and the UN’s WMO, with its charter carefully crafted to only study human (Anthropogenic) effects on climate – “Don’t worry about natural causes – your gasses and lifestyles are far more dangerous than anything Mother Nature can deal out…trust us”.
THUS, the science was “settled” and “consensus” demanded before the data was even in. It has been the same ever since. The hypothesis has not changed a jot even as the evidence proving CAGW has failed dismally across most metrics. Instead, the theory has become more “settled”, according to the UN IPCC, with the scare driven relentlessly by the mainstream media and throng of well funded global green lobby groups and unreliable-energy rent-seekers who all profit from climate doom.
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about?” – Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.” – Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit
“It is the responsibility of each human being today to choose between the force of darkness and the force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of Divine Nature.“ – Maurice Strong, first Secretary General of UNEP
THE fix was in from the start, and now we’re paying for it, big time, in the form of skyrocketing power bills, energy poverty and even an uptick in cold-related deaths as the elderly and poor are forced to switch off their heating in the face of costly ‘green’ energy
schemes scams imposed on them by draconian government ‘climate’ regulations…
FORMER Australian PM, Tony Abbott, has had enough. His essay featured in today’s Australian is a plea from the people and its economy, paralysed by skyrocketing power bills, to pull out of the job and life-destroying UN Paris climate accord…
(ABBOT’s essay is paywalled, so I’ll pull out the juicy bits, with Climatism supports added.) Read the rest of this entry »
