“Green” activism (including grants) worldwide is a $411 billion misinformation business.
We have let an unholy alliance of radical environmentalists, a corrupt UN, demagoging and rent-seeking politicians, power hungry and agenda driven agencies like the US EPA and their equivalents in places like the UK and Australia, unethical scientific and economic grant toting elites and their opportunistic academic institutions and an agenda driven media that control the message to their enormous benefit and the detriment of the world’s peoples and economies.
Because of their policies, we have seen explosion of people in fuel poverty even in the developed nations - where many elderly and pensioners and poor families must choose between heating and eating. Meanwhile needed energy sources have been denied to poorer parts of the third world because they claim that would increase the emissions of CO2, a beneficial gas that has NEVER been shown to have damaging effect on climate or health. Climategate and IPCC gate showed how vacuous the so called settled global warming science is. But the media ignored it. As warming failed and sea levels stopped rising, the movement refocused on extremes including cold and snow that their own models suggested would become rare as proof of man’s impact.
Our energy policy is turned upside down with costly, inefficient yet lavishly subsidized renewables forced on us and proven energy resources demonized, limited or denied.
We have learned nothing from the failed experiments in places like Spain where 2.2 jobs were lost for every 1 green job while 1 of every 10 green jobs were permanent and where soaring energy costs drove industry out of Spain resulting in 20.5% unemployment. In Italy, 3.5 jobs were lost for every subsidized green jobs and the world is watching the Italian economy collapse. Part of the world’s economic problems can be attributed to the unholy alliance’s work.
Why has the media ignored these facts and the real motive admission by IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer in November 2010 “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...”.
For today’s ‘illuminati’ in the unholy alliance, it is all about power and wealth. They have built their economic and energy policies on a house of cards scientific theory that deserves to be thrown in the trash heap of history. We have to recognize the light upstairs went out years ago. The Dark Ages are back.
