Clash Of The Climate Crises

Written by Allan Erickson on October 12, 2021

“Climate scientists are starting to push back against exaggerations by activists, journalists, and other scientists,” wrote Michael Shellenberger in Forbes.

Ample evidence from experts indicates global warming is not an existential threat. Yet far-left radicals terrorize our youth daily, predicting global disaster within a few years. When you are addicted to an agenda fueled by hysterical fanaticism, rational proceeding is impossible.

Let’s remember that climate activists have failed to make accurate predictions, for decades!

It is stunning how readily most people accept a myth, then agree debate is over. It is mind-bending to witness people believe unproven theories driving them to conclude the only solutions lie in destroying economies and engaging radical population reduction. Suicide is a solution? We haven’t adequately defined the problem! How can there be reasonable solutions?

We should all be very suspicious of elites who rely on models instead of actual measurements, elites who insist we fall in line, declaring debate is over. Debate is never over, especially when radicals demand we bankrupt our country helping them build the new totalitarian state.

And as usual, the Third World suffers most.

Democrats insist they spend $3.5 to $7 Trillion (our money) on the green agenda. Basically, the agenda calls for a complete eradication of fossil fuels and a total reliance on alternatives. Remember, they say the ‘climate crisis’ is caused by human activity. Based on this assumption, there are only two logical solutions: reduce our activity, and/or reduce our numbers.
