It is all about power, control and wealth–period, intelligence not required!
When McKibben says that “in a sense we turn out to be God’s equal—or at least, his rival—able to destroy creation.”39 This apocalyptic—and hubristic—claim assumes a grossly inflated estimation of human power, and an equally severe underestimation of nature’s power and resiliency. As Easterbrook points out in his thorough documentation of nature’s destructive power and ability to withstand those assaults, “Human assaults on the environment, though mischievous, are pinpricks [sic] compared to forces of the magnitude nature is accustomed to resisting.”
There is no equality in nature, no justice, “no covenants between wolves and sheep,” as Homer said. All of these ideas and qualities— beauty, harmony, awe, reverence, justice, equality—have their origins and meaning only in the human mind and in human culture. This means that our relationship to the natural world must be defined, not in natural, but in human terms—of what will promote human values and well-being, of what will ensure a sustaining environment for those to come after us.
Much of what passes for environmentalism, in short, is really a species of therapy for the disaffected, anxious modern looking for personal happiness. Indeed, environmentalism as therapy is now the conscious goal of some social workers, other peddlers of false knowledge in our society.
The therapeutic thrust of environmentalism explains its widespread appeal to New Age adherents. That nature-love may substitute for religion has long been obvious. Historian Keith Thomas traces this development to the later eighteenth century, when the appreciation of wild nature “had been converted into a sort of religious act. Nature was not only beautiful; it was morally healing. The value of the wilderness was not just negative; it did not merely provide a place of privacy, an opportunity for self-examination and private reverie (which was an ancient idea); it had a more positive role, exercising a beneficent spiritual power over man.” Thomas quotes historian Archibald Alison, who said in 1815, “All the noblest convictions and confidences of religion may be acquired in the simple school of nature.” As seen, this sentiment is identical to modern environmentalism’s anthropocentric idealization of nature. “In the irony of ironies,”
==Plagues of the Mind: The New Epidemic of False Knowledge (Thornton, Bruce S.)
‘Social Norms and Global Environmental Challenges’. The ‘paper’ was straight from the pages of Agenda 21 with the usual justification of saving the planet from the alleged horrors of climate change: “Substantial numbers of people will have to alter their existing behaviors to address this new class of global environmental problems. Alternative approaches are needed when education and persuasion alone are insufficient. Policy instruments such as penalties, regulations, and incentives may therefore be required to achieve significant behavior modification.”
==The Perception Deception – Part Two (Icke, David)
A bit of a hodgepodge is this, but the bottom line is that global warming into climate change and back to global warming as the propagandists of State and Agenda 21 and the hundreds of thousands of “scientists”, global bureaucrats, alternative energy and cap and trade billionaires that suck on the teat of the giant spigots of government and NGO money flows and pronounce from their mighty perches that deniers should be thrown in jail, are far more corrupt than we are stupid and brainwashed. However, let’s face it, the mouthpieces and front men for this giant global con and the world control desirous elites that fund them can prove themselves to be even more ignorant and brain-dead than those of us they seek to manipulate.
Yet, though for a brief instance of stupidity revelation, we retreat into the cocoons of our own soma induced sleep. Nothing is as it seems…reality is being created for your consumption, but if you follow the money and the power and those that seek to take more of it, you may see some glimmers of Truth. For me, it all becomes sickeningly depressing. I am not sure who makes me sicker, the masters who manipulate us or those masses who willfully have no desire to seek the truth, to see the reality of our world no matter how disturbing.
“Would you acknowledge that over the last 18 years, that the increase in temperatures has been very little, matter of fact 90% below most of the environmental models that showed how fast temperature would increase?”
McCarthy replied that she didn’t know “what the models actually are predicting that you are referring to.”
Sessions called her ignorance and inability to outline the danger we supposedly face from climate change, as well as her failure to justify the EPA’s funding request, a “stunning development.” So do we.
The science is indeed settled, but not the way climate zealots think. McCarthy’s lack of knowledge and facts on her side only underscores the fact we have wasted billions on fighting a nonexistent threat and shackled our economy with lower growth and higher job loss.
Nearly $1 billion a day to change the climate… the invisible vested elephant in the room
Here’s a stark statistic that came out last week in a new report: The Climate Industry draws in nearly $1 billion dollars a day. But here’s an ominous combination: … it openly admits that taxpayer money is its “engine-room”. Reading between the lines below, this industry is almost completely dependent on domestic policies that funnel money from citizens to itself, and tilts the playing field — without those policies, it can’t attract much private money. That is, it can only get money at least partially by coercion, people won’t give it money purely voluntarily. These same groups want even more — they want the public to take the risks too. What could possibly go wrong?
Al Gore, said it himself: “Special interests control decisions too frequently.” [See the ABC]. So he must be concerned about the lobbying weight of a $360 billion dollar baby whose existence is contingent on government gravy? As if…
From: The Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2013 from the Climate Policy Initiative
“Landscape 2013 finds that global climate finance flows have plateaued at USD 359 billion, or around USD 1 billion per day – far below even the most conservative estimates of investment needs.
OK, so in greenspeak, it’s only a billion dollars a day, and that’s not nearly large enough!
Speaking at the Wind Technology Testing Center in Boston Massachusetts on October 9th, the windsurfer and windbag-in-chief himself, Secretary of State John Kerry, pronounced that climate change, if left unaddressed, will result in the end of times: “Life as you know it on Earth ends,” Kerry said.
Last February, Kerry claimed that climate change was the world’s “most fearsome” weapon of mass destruction. Not nuclear arms in the hands of the terrorist sponsoring regime of Iran or in the hands of ISIS or al Qaeda. Climate change is the real number #1 national security threat, according to Kerry.
Perhaps Kerry should take his head out of the clouds and take a hard look at the stark reality on earth that we are facing today. Think Ebola and global jihad for starters.
Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber resigned because of corruption allegations that benefited his fiance, Cylvia Hayes. Now it appears that a green activist group at the center of the storm has ties to one of the biggest Democratic donors: Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer.
The Clean Economy Development Center (CEDC) – a group funded and organized by Steyer – paid Ms. Hayes $118,000 to advocate for environmentalist policies in Oregon. Hayes never disclosed those payments, despite acting as an informal adviser to the governor as he pushed a low-carbon fuel standard for the state.
Dan Carol, then a strategic adviser to CEDC, helped Hayes land the position. He was later given a $165,000-per-year job in the Kitzhaber administration.
Mike Casey is another director of CEDC with ties to Steyer. Casey runs a media and public relations firm called Tigercomm that does polling and advertising work for Steyer’s Super PC, NextGen Climate Action.
Casey also reportedly wrote NextGen’s communications strategy for its involvement in elections in Massachusetts and Virginia in 2013. NextGen and another Steyer group, the CE Action Committee, paid Tigercomm $387,000 that year.
While the Democrats try and smear the reputation of the Koch brothers, the Oregon corruption scandal proves that liberals aren’t above using big money of their own to advance their pet policies.
