Showing that the Green New Deal is actually the Green New Scam has always been easy.
All you have to do is refer to scientific facts rather than pseudo-science and phony models. Then you’re on the right track.
There are now so many polar bears some countries are considering hunting.
For example, did you know that polar bear populations have tripled in recent years and some countries are considering allowing a polar bear hunt?
That’s quite a contrast to the last lonely polar bear swimming for a melting piece of drift ice in Al Gore’s 2006 book and movie An Inconvenient Truth.
Did you know that the climate models used by the UN can’t even backtest correctly with actual data let alone forecast with speculative data?
Did you know that CO2 is not a pollutant? It’s actually plant food and we could use more of it if we really want a green planet.
Did you know that hurricanes, tornados and blizzards are neither more frequent nor more severe than in past decades?
Did you know that forest fires in California are caused by gross mismanagement of forests rather than climate?
This list goes on, but you get the point.
Most of the data thrown around by climate alarmists are either false or not nearly as troubling as it sounds when put in an empirical context.
To the extent the climate does change over time, it has nothing to do with CO2 and methane and much more to do with sunspots, ocean currents, volcanoes, the jet stream and other natural forces we cannot control.
That much is easy.
The difficult part in my mind has always been, why?
Why do so many elites and other supposedly smart people repeat scientific garbage ad nauseum to hypnotize large populations who lack the data or skills needed to tear the alarmist claims apart?
At the recent climate summit conference held in the luxury resort of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt called COP27, the parties agreed to transfer over $230 billion to poorer countries as “climate reparations” for damage supposedly done by wealthy nations.
Never mind that the delegates mostly arrived by private jets that spew more CO2 in a few hours than an automobile does in years.
Never mind that the largest polluter in the world, China, will not be contributing to the fund.
Never mind that the entire basis for claims of damage from CO2 emissions is bogus.
None of this can be allowed to stand in the way of the agenda.
The entire green new scam is just a device to transfer wealth from rich western nations to poor nations all over the world.
It’s a financial hijacking conducted by people who hate America and love wealth transfers to socialist and corrupt nations around the world.
That’s the dirty little secret behind the climate alarmist agenda.
It’s not about saving the planet. It’s about robbing the planet by transferring your tax dollars to kleptocrats abroad.
Forget about global warming. Just get your checkbook out and hand over the money.
