4 thoughts on “Using the Environment To Consolidate Power

  1. The media and scientific community claim the climate change science is settled, do the facts back that up? Climate change skeptics continue to challenge the so-called conventional wisdom, asking “Is global warming a hoax? Is man-made global warming the dire threat environmentalists claim?”

    Well, yes it is a hoax.

    How many of the predictions , like al Gore’s, have panned out? None.

    Recent global warming agreements brokered by the U.N. seek steep reductions in world C02 output to slow the presumed warming of the earth’s atmosphere, while also seeking alterations in the economy that would move energy sources away from fossil fuels toward renewable natural energy. That is a loser just like electric vehicles.

    A growing contingent of scientists and economists call into question the climate change dogma, saying that the temperature data show no clear recent warming and noting that the benefits of global warming, if it existed, might be greater than the costs.

    1. The video emphasizes power and control as the motivator, Fred, but money is another. The green energy interests buy off politicians– and some of the socialist megadonors are tied up in green energy. The Democrats are the main culprits, but the Republicans participate also.

  2. Bonus: ABC’s ’08 Prediction: NYC Under Water from Climate Change By June 2015

    New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

    The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, “It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.” (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction for the current year: “Gas reached over $9 a gallon.” (In reality, gas costs an average of $2.75.)

    On June 13, 2008, ABCNews.com promoted the special by hyperventilating, “Are we living in the last century of our civilization?” Unlike the 2015 predictions, that suggestion hasn’t (yet) been proven wrong.

    Fifteen years later, the network has quietly ignored its horribly inaccurate predictions about 2015. When it comes to global warming claims, apparently results don’t matter for ABC.
