That Way Madness Lies – Watts Up With That? Greta Thunberg’s Message Of Doom Is Religion, Not Reality. By Paul Homewood In January, the great and not so good of the corporate elite gathered at Davos for another telling off from Greta Thunberg.
“One year ago I came to Davos and told you that our house is on fire,” the climate activist reminded delegates. “I said I wanted you to panic.” In the intervening year they had not panicked enough, she said. Although the meeting of the World Economic Forum was dedicated to creating a “Cohesive and Sustainable World”, and corporate culture has gone obsessively green, the naughty capitalists and greedy governments refused to end the use of fossil fuels instantly. Green paganism. Many zealous greens are strongly imbued with pagan values.
Paganism is generally defined as polytheism mixed in with nature worship. Primitive pagans frequently cowered before the forces of nature, fatalistically resigned to being at nature’s mercy, believing that progress was not only impossible, but a criminal offense against nature. So complete was their submission to nature, and so foreign to them was the idea that individual lives have value, that pagan societies often practiced human sacrifice to appease the gods of nature, particularly the sun god (e.g., the Aztecs). Let’s forget about polytheism for now. What’s more important are the attitudes toward nature and human life. Pagan greens insist that we cling to dependence on natural, “clean, renewable” sources of energy, namely, from the wind and sun. Of particular concern are the sometimes rabidly anti-human beliefs of green pagans. Jane Fonda on Climate Change: “Just get rid of us Homo sapiens ASAP and things will restore themselves.” Scottish Government Plans Compulsory Climate Education To Make Urgent Changes To Society.
MSPs, business leaders and newly enrolled university students may be asked to take mandatory climate change studies if plans currently under consideration are adopted.
The studies would help arm them with facts and knowledge to make urgent changes to society as it emerges from COVID-19 lockdown. The Scottish Government has already committed to enrolling at least 100 senior officials to the Climate Solutions course. The news comes just days before Tuesday’s one-year anniversary of Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon declaring a climate emergency. The course was devised by experts at the Perth-based Royal Scottish Geographical Society in partnership with the Institute of Directors, Stirling University’s Business School and the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Carbon Innovation. Among the main areas the course looks at are issues around transport, energy use, supply chains, social behaviours, mitigation and planning for the future.

All Hail The New CofE: The Church of Extinction. Is it climate socialism – or eco-fascism? Green New Deal climate alarm socialism is really intolerant, totalitarian eco-fascism Paul Driessen Green New Dealers have convinced themselves that our planet faces an imminent, existential, manmade climate cataclysm – that can be prevented solely and simply by government edicts replacing fossil fuels with biofuel, wind, solar and battery energy.
They achieve this state of absolute certainty largely by propagating constant scare stories, while ignoring and suppressing contradictory evidence and viewpoints. They deliberately and deceptively talk about “carbon pollution.” Carbon is soot – what our cars, factories and power plants now emit in very small quantities. Another climate scientist speaks out against the hysteria. Summary: Provoked by the hysteria of climate activists, More climate scientists are speaking out against them.

MacRae, B.A.Sc., M.Eng.1. Introduction. Ever wonder why extremists attack honest scientists who oppose global warming and climate change hysteria? Ever wonder why climate extremists refuse to debate the science? On the Energy Innumeracy of the supporters of Canada’s Green New Deal. In the last week a group of Canadian activists have decided to mimic their American cousins by trying to advance a Canadian pact for a Green New Deal (GND Can hereafter).
This is not the American Green New Deal you might have heard about, it is entirely Canadian project, and like the Leap Manifesto (its political cousin) the GND Can represents a sort of aspirational thinking best relegated to fairy tales and not worthy of consideration in serious climate change discussions. I’m sure a lot of people reading this post will think that I am being a bit unkind by describing the GND Can as a grand delusion, but as I intend to show in this blog post, it is clear that the people who created this project are innumerate when it comes to energy policy.
Beware the anti-humanism of the green movement. Share The relationship between population growth and abundance is a positive one A populous world is a rich world and a rich world is better for the environment AOC asks if it's still OK to have children - the answer is an emphatic Yes. We are entering dangerous territory. The radicalisation of the environmentalist movement, as seen on the streets of London over the past week, is accelerating and is increasingly acquiring a darker aspect. The anti-humanist strand of environmentalism is best exemplified by the renewed push to reduce the world’s population. Unlike in the past, when some governments, such as that of India, forced men and women into sterilisation programs and others, like the Chinese government, mandated “one-child” policies, these latest initiatives are voluntary. It should go without saying, though it bears repeating in some parts of the world, that motherhood ought to be entered into by consenting women.
Examples of this dangerous trend abound. Is the climate change movement a ‘cult’? Climate Change And The Ten Warning Signs For Cults Reposted from Medium Have you thought to yourself that the Climate Change movement seems more and more like a religious movement? I have, so I researched how to identify a religious cult. Rick Ross, an expert on cults and intervention specialist, developed a list of ten warning signs for unsafe groups, which is published by the Cult Education Institute.
Science Under Attack. Last week’s landmark report by the UN’s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), which claims that global temperatures will reach catastrophic levels unless we take drastic measures to curtail climate change by 2030, is as misguided as eugenics was 100 years ago.
