I was always skeptical of climate change.
Until recently, I didn’t write much about the issue, but I began to form my views on the subject during the climate alarmism of the 2000s. Back then, we were repeatedly told that the polar ice caps were on the verge of melting due to global warming which would flood our coastal cities. There was also hysteria about hurricanes which were said to be getting worse and worse because of climate change.
Twenty years later, the polar ice caps are still intact and Miami and Mobile haven’t sunk beneath the waves. Hurricanes did not continue to get worse after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. In fact, the opposite happened and hurricane season became milder over the next 15 years. Just a few years ago, the South was hit by devastating droughts which were blamed on climate change and were predicted to get worse and worse. In recent years though, it has rained more during the summer.
“Journalists” don’t know shit about anything and simply push narratives. A good example of this is the hysteria over the heat wave in the Pacific Northwest. Yes, there was a heat wave in the Pacific Northwest, but this summer has been wetter and cooler than usual in the South. Every extreme weather pattern is blamed by idiots on “climate change.” It is true that the climate is changing. This has always been true throughout all of history. The planet has been colder than usual for millions of years.
Yes, the climate changes, but the Gulf of Mexico has advanced in and out of the Gulf Coastal Plain dozens of times over the last few millions years. The Mobile River, for example, is a flooded river valley. Florida is normally submerged under the Atlantic Ocean. The most catastrophic predictions of the climate change doomsday cult are bound to happen on a long enough time scale through natural processes.
“Perhaps the 234 scientists behind this week’s landmark climate assessment had hoped that their report—published during a summer of deadly flooding, wildfires, and heat waves—would act as a wake-up call, one that would unite the world’s governments and parties.
But political consensus on the issue of climate change, much like the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, is unlikely to be achieved: Although most mainstream political parties have at the very least acknowledged the reality of human-induced climate change and the need to implement sweeping new policies to address it, several populist parties continue to reject the scientific consensus. Even those that accept it tend to oppose mainstream solutions, including multilateral efforts to address the problem.
Europe, which has experienced some of the summer’s worst climate disasters, offers a preview of the populist right’s next political battleground. What has emerged so far is not a change of heart but, rather, a shift in tone. Populist parties have traded outright denialism for the position that climate policy, like that of immigration and the coronavirus pandemic, represents yet another top-down elite agenda that stands to hit ordinary people, particularly those in the working class, the hardest. …”
Normally, I have preferred to ignore the issue.
I’ve been hearing the same shit for twenty years from these people. Over that time period, the weather hasn’t changed much in my area, but our culture has degenerated and immigration has gotten worse and racial demographics have definitely shifted in a negative way. We’re plunging down a slippery slope and it is because of the class of people who tend to be focused on this issue.
The thing that really prompted me to come out and take an aggressive position on the issue is their new War on Meat. This was the tipping point when it became clear that the climate change doomsday cult is a pseudo-religion (it regulates food and drink like other religions) that is bound up with all sorts of other things like COVID authoritarianism and wokeness and “trans.”
The solution to all of these issues whether it is COVID or climate change is also the same: we must relinquish power to the college-educated, professional class and follow the orders of the PMCs and technocrats who live in the big coastal metropolitan areas. That’s all it takes to save the world from COVID or climate change or “misinformation” or economic inequality or “toxic masculinity” and the patriarchy or heteronormativity or “white supremacy” and systematic racism.
What do they actually do with power though? They mostly boss people around, congratulate themselves, enrich themselves, mismanage the country and wallow in their own degeneracy. They are a distinct self serving class of people who use issues like “climate change” or systematic racism to justify their own rule. If they all sunk under the waves tomorrow, the world would be better off without them.
