A very interesting article well worth the read – Dilbert Cartoon on Climate Change Prompts Rebuttal from Yale – but it was these comments that caught my eye. It begins with this.
Never forget what a sixties SDS radical once said: “The issue is NEVER the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” In other words, the cause of a political action – whether civil rights or women’s rights – is never the real cause; women, blacks and other “victims” are only instruments in the larger cause, which is power. Exact same situation with “climate change.” The goal is to smash Western Christian capitalist civilization and liberty. Just look at the “advanced” atheist-collectivist model in China, where you can barely see your hand in front of your face due to pollution in some cities. They don’t give a crap about “the people” OR the climate. The collectivist masterminds just want iron, totalitarian state control.
There is then this question.
I don’t think there’s any political conspiracy behind mainstream climate science. Who are these “collectivist masterminds” that you refer to in this comment?
And this is the reply.
Here are just two examples: Ottmar Edenhofer, lead author of the IPCC’s fourth summary report released in 2007 candidly expressed the priority. Speaking in 2010, he advised, “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth.”
Or, as U.N. climate chief Christina Figueres pointedly remarked, the true aim of the U.N.’s 2014 Paris climate conference was “to change the [capitalist] economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
Google the “Degrowth” movement. The goal is to have the entire planet (under the benevolent guidance of masterminds to whom all this does NOT apply) living in chicken coops, walking to public transportation or biking, freezing in winter, broiling in summer, defecating without toilets, strictly vegan, etc., etc. It’s all about depriving YOU of liberty and the hope of EVER accumulating any wealth. In other words, North Korea for everyone (but the masterminds). Sound familiar?
Actually Venezuela on a planetary scale but you get the point.
