The Climate Scam

September 20, 2019 is a day of public demonstrations to address climate change. The climate change scare has seemed suspicious from the start. Except for exploiting it, the natural environment has never been a concern of the rich and powerful, yet powerful interests are everywhere behind the many organizations hyping the threat of anthropogenic global warming.

This vast theory came to mainstream acceptance far too quickly to be credible. Like so may political initiatives, it was sold to the public through fear — in this case, fear of human extinction in the very near future. No sooner did we hear of the theory than we were told “the science is settled.” At that point, belief in global warming became dogma, and skepticism became heresy. If one voices skepticism,  one is called a “denier.” Thus we are not allowed to question. This is the opposite of science. There is no protest against US, Israeli, Saudi, and NATO warmaking in the climate activist platform. In the US, the politics of climate change align with the politics of the Democratic Party, where criminal wars of aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq,  Yemen, and Syria, and constant threats against Iran are not discussed. How can you discuss environmental damage and not mention the largest polluter in the world — the Pentagon?

Cory Morningstar at The Wrong Kind of Green has written extensively about oligarch and corporate funding of the climate change juggernaut and its offshoot, the “Green New Deal.” Following is a quote from a recent essay by Cory:

As media hypes the global climate mobilizations in perfect synchronicity with a tsunami of “12 years until climate apocalypse” news articles saturating our collective psyches, global climate emergency declarations announced by states, and all levels of government, are indeed soaring. As this series has demonstrated, and as confirmed by the July 4, 2019, high-level roundtable (“Emerging from Emergency – Urgency as a Catalyst for Action and Regeneration”) this feat has been a high-level orchestrated endeavour. Indeed, the stakes could not be higher. Late-stage capitalism is faltering with economic growth in freefall. The climate mobilizations beget the declarations, beget the policy, beget the budgets, beget the finance.

The policy and legislation are instrumental to unlocking the public funds for so-called “climate infrastructure” projects (predominantly in the Global South). Infrastructure and technologies that will be paid by the citizenry, to be owned by the billionaires. We must never lose sight that the terrifying news regarding our rapidly deteriorating natural world is real, but the reason for the media saturation (spectacle) has nothing to do with protecting the natural world nor the climate – and everything to do with rebooting global economic growth and saving the capitalist system itself. Consider the Global Optimist meme shared by We Mean Business: “People are desperate for something to happen.” The message is this: No one can save you but us. Accept our solutions, or die. Another world is possible, but only if that world is designed by the ruling classes that maintain and expand current power structure. One could call this psychological manipulation, or hegemonic coercion.

This is the gentle transition into the new age of neo-feudalism. Social engineering and behavioural change campaigns have been employed to make hierarchical class invisible, in real time.

The environmental NGOs comprising the non-profit industrial complex exist as corporate front groups. They insulate, protect, and assist in the expansion of existing power structures that facilitate capitalism.

Below is an excerpt from a 2011 interview of Bill McKibben, founder of Watch McKibben quibble and lie about his funding by the Rockefellers. is a major sponsor of the great climate change protest scheduled for September 20.

Friends, we’re being had.

  1. Thanks for this, Richard. I am most troubled by the use of children to front this agenda. Just one more attack on childhood in our modern, hedonistic technology worshiping culture.

  2. Climate Change?……The climate is not static. There have been Ice ages in the past and probably will in the future, and when the Ice Age fades away, ‘Global warming’ heats the World up again. And, anyway, What is ‘Normal’ when it comes to Weather?
    “The fact that an opinion is widely held is no evidence whatsoever, that it is not utterly absurd”…..Bertrand Russell

    Climate Change has about the same credibility as Astrology, or Religion.

  3. The Titanic never sank, it was claimed to be unsinkable! Why did the government bring in the Clean Air Act in the 1950s to reduce pollution?. Obviously you are prepared to take the risk, so you want to see the end at your own hands, just ignore the ice melt, the forest fires, the flooding and the weather extremes. I prefer to call it evolutionary extinction!

    • Actually, I do happen to believe that humans are destroying the planet, I just don’t think carbon emissions are the problem. I think things like nuclear power plants on fault lines, nuclear power plants in general, the use of depleted uranium shells, tailings from mining, pollution from novel chemicals and even some of the old ones into the air, soil and water, chemical and biological concoctions in the vaccines we give to infants and everyone else, modifying the genomes of insects, plants, animals and humans, cloning, and a worldwide surveillance apparatus are all incredibly frightening problems that we really do need to face. This one seems to be manufactured – perhaps to keep us from focusing on the other ones? As a scientist, I know that science is never settled, so if you can demonstrate conclusively – or even a good possibility – that human carbon emissions are a threat to humanity or the earth, I am willing to listen. But from what I have seen so far, it is a scam. While it is never easy to hold the less popular view, I always have to go where the data takes me.

  4. Climate change fans always use the 11 year sun cycle for their own. Currently the 11 years shows the climate not rising due to the sun. Big problem – there are many sun cycles. Currently the Bray cycle is coming home. I wonder how climate scientist don’t take all cycles into account. Must be not up on the literature – though the literature has been around for a long time. Check Wikipedia – then hit the web boys – catch up with things.
