Gulp! In just twelve years, we’re all gonna die from Climbit Change unless the governments of the world Do Something to Save The Planet… according to the latest 700-page Nostradamus wannabe from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (https://www.vox.com/2018/10/8/17948832/climate-change-global-warming-un-ipcc-report).
Yep, twelve years–that’s all we’ve got… to “remove carbon dioxide directly from the air,” and accept “massive and unprecedented changes to global energy infrastructure”… because, chimes in one of the seers, “Half a degree matters!”
And don’t you worry about a thing, boys ‘n’ girls! See, Science will be in charge of everything, backed up by the power of the State! So even if it seems a shockingly bad idea to remove carbon dioxide from the air–if you could even do it, at a cost of no one knows how many billions of dollars–ten-to-one they can’t really do it–there’s not a thing that can go wrong, once we’ve given government fantastic new powers to run our lives, and trillions more dollars in taxes, and provided everybody obeys the government and believes every word of Science–
Honk if you find this persuasive. Honk if you approve of corrupt idiots trying to customize the earth’s atmosphere.
The beauty of gloom-and-doom predictions is that, when nothing happens after all, you can always say, “See! We kept bad stuff from happening! But we might not be able to do it again unless you give us more power and money.”
Ask yourself: if these globalist scheisskopfs really, truly, honestly believed in what they’re telling us… would they live in colossal mansions, ride around in stretch limos, zoom off to Davos in private jets, and leave individual carbon footprints bigger than those of certain countries? Do they act like they believe one freakin’ word of what they’re selling us?
I’m getting a sense that the 21st century is trying to tell us something: that our “leaders” need to be a lot more afraid of us than they are.
