If it seems that the climate radicals are acting desperately because they sense that their “movement” is dying, then that’s probably an accurate assessment.
From EPA employees threatening resistance to Donald Trump’s presidency to junk-science guy Bill Nye appearing on Fox News to tell the world that humans are fully responsible for “the speed that climate change is happening,” the irrational behavior is overflowing.
Of course the alarmists can’t give up their shrillness. They’re still bullies who try to marginalize, shame and silence those who don’t agree with their narrative that man is dangerously overheating the planet through his greenhouse gas emissions.
But they’re the ones who should be mocked. Here’s why:
They’re wrong. The devastating heat they predicted simply hasn’t happened. Climate scientists Roy Spencer, John Christy and others have showed this numerous times.
They’ve hidden their true agenda. The zealots want to destroy capitalism and take over the world’s economy.
Two years ago, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of United Nation’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, said “this is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years.”
A year later, Ottmar Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change from 2008 to 2015, admitted that “we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
They’re hypocrites. Every year, delegates, many of them on private jets, fly to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, from where they hector the rest of us about our carbon footprints. The busybodies also regularly jet to the U.N.’s global warming conferences, held in such global hot spots as Paris, Cancun, Copenhagen and Milan. Wherever they go, their accommodations are always lavish, their travels well attended to, and their dining sumptuous. Of course their goal is to strip 21st-century comforts from everyone else in the name of “fighting” climate change.
The hypocrite-in-chief is of course Al Gore. While constantly haranguing the world about man’s carbon emissions, he’s lived the very lifestyle he condemns. From a 20-room home that requires yacht-loads of energy, to banking as much as $100 million from the oil barons who bought his old cable network, to his habit of using private jets to whisk him away to preach his sermons about the evils of fossil-fuel use, his life is a lie.
They’re authoritarians. Merely disagreeing with them is much like disagreeing with the Castros. The clearly deranged Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has said that some climate skeptics should be prosecuted as war criminals. Last March, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the Senate Judiciary Committee that there had been official discussions about prosecuting “deniers.”
This came at the prompting of Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who has suggested the government use organized-crime laws to go after the same people. Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva has targeted, through the use of government police power, climate researchers whose work he doesn’t like, while academic activist David Suzuki has encouraged Canadian politicians to find “a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they’re doing is a criminal act.”
Leonardo DiCaprio. Here’s a high school dropout who’s become fabulously rich doing what kindergartners do every day — pretending to be someone else and imagining that they are doing something they aren’t doing, and probably never will or would do. It’s called acting and it pays some of its practitioners well.
