To a certain group of people, Climate Crisis is a “fact” supported by The Science. It calls for our benevolent superman government to save us from our filthy sinful dependency on fossil fuels, while liberating us from supervillain Lex Luthor (wicked capitalism and crooked Putin). For this we must express deep gratitude and penitence, ready ourselves to pay any price, including financial and economic suicide, starvation and even death. Whatever it takes, we must sacrifice on the alter of The Science to support our appointed political martyrs in their mission to save the planet, alongside their noble military fleets that guzzle gobs and gobs of fossil fuels in the process. To this group, high gas prices have nothing to do with supply, EROI (energy return on investment), $303+ trillion in global debt, or artificially manipulated interest rates of the global reserve currency…but with greedy oil companies and their CEOs straight from Hades or Hell.
To another group of people, Climate Crisis is a “narrative” spun by a corrupt power-hungry government who blackmails [Is this word racist?] and bribes everyone it can, to follow its politicized and financialized agenda. According to what is nonchalantly labeled as “conspiracy theory” by the mainstream media, this group believes in the good-guy-bad-guy dichotomy, not unlike the first group. While the first group naively assumes, this group truly believes that oil is a renewable fossil fuel, and the very idea that it’s non-renewable only came from, again, greedy oil companies hungry for profit. The governments and elites are “turning off” fossil fuels, not for any logical reason, but because they are just “evil” and want us all to die. Like the first group, they too have a dualistic worldview.
There’s a special narrative that appeals to my son, and probably others in his generation. It’s about “free energy” tech that we acquired from aliens. It’s top secret and hidden from the public so the oil companies can continue to profit. God forbid, if people knew about this free energy, based on zero-point gravity, they could power their homes and vehicles with the open air! The industrial energy complex would then crumble and send many billionaires into bankruptcy. There’s a cool guy by the name of Steven Greer; he manages to talk about all this without being offed. I’ve seen some rather convincing presentations he’s given, but upon further and deeper thought, I have wondered why aliens don’t seem to need any food, water, sunlight, clothing, supplies, medical care, shelter, etc. Do they have toilets and showers on those ships? Heat and AC? Grocery stores? What do they do with their waste? Only if they are living among us, and we don’t recognize them as alien creatures, could they truly exist. Unless they’re maybe digital? Here’s the truth about energy: ENERGY CLIFF: The Coming Depression That Will Never End.
Is one side of Climate Crisis right and the other wrong? Or are both sides bickering over where to move chairs on the Titanic? Chairs matter for the big party they’re hosting in celebration of the many diverse passengers of multiple genders and colors who have afforded passage with free fiat. While people are drunk, dancing and singing on the main deck, a small limited number of “first class” passengers quietly escape the “sinking” on a few lifeboats. In other words, they cash out of their worthless currency into your real assets—just in time—before everything falls apart, or just after you can’t pay your mortgage. So today, on this rainy August Sunday, when I’m supposed to be on the beach sipping martinis, I’m wearing winter clothing, reading climate crisis documents, and slurping homemade roasted tomato and basil soup. Why? I’m asking myself the same question. I studied only the content of two opposing documents, and not the characters involved (that’s my rule). I then analyzed the information, and started writing…
The Turning Point: A Global Summary
The Turning Point: A Global Summary presents no science on the concept of climate crisis or on the decarbonization solution. This report suggests that climate change will be the cause of societal breakdown, the collapse of the global economy, and will cost us dearly in fabricated dollars, if we do nothing about it. Pg. 12 (14 of 38) specifically states, “the labor force, productive land, productivity, health and well-being, the flow of global currency (tourism/travel), and agriculture” will all be affected. Uncontrolled climate change could cost the global economy $178 trillion if we don’t act now to implement the green climate policies that have been laid out for us, to decarbonize the global economy by 2050 at the earliest…
It presumes that we “could” create prosperity and boost GDP by 2070. [Isn’t that when Pfizer wanted to release the documents on their vaccine trials?] No mention of debt in this report, just spending, lots of spending to supposedly limit global warming by 1.5 degrees, down from 3.0 degrees over the course of 48 years. By 2071, it’ll be 100 years since we abandoned the gold standard, but there was no mention of this fact. If in the last 10 years we doubled U.S. national debt, how much will it be 48 years from now? To get an idea, watch this video on exponential growth. Remember, debt is people’s investment in liability. It’s been historically resolved by devaluing the currency (inflation) to zero and then revaluing sovereign gold.
Let’s look at generations today, and how the world might change over the next 48 years. The average lifespan of an American man is 78 years, so in 48 years the collective memory in national and global society will dramatically transform. The youngest Baby Boomers (1946 to 1964) will be at least 106 years old. The youngest in my Generation X (1965 to 1980) will be 90 years old. The youngest Millennials (1981 to 1996) will be 74 years old. That leaves my kids in Generation Z (1997 to 2009) with their gaming, music, trends, social media networks, digital everything, and politics in the age range of 61 to 73. And Generation Alpha (2010 to present), with their tech-religious and hyperconnected everything, and their kids and grandkids and great grandkids. I can only imagine what this society might look like, if I watch The Walking Dead or any other of the many post-apocalyptic television shows.
There is No Climate Emergency: World Climate Declaration
There is No Climate Emergency states “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific.” A global network of over 1100 scientists and professionals have signed this World Climate Declaration, names and titles in the document. Here are the 5 major points in this declaration:
(1) Warming is far slower than predicted.
(2) Climate “policy” relies on inadequate models and should respect scientific and economic realities.
(3) CO2 is plant food, the basis of all life on Earth. CO2-mitigation measures are damaging and costly.
(4) Global warming has not increased natural disasters. No statistical evidence of this.
(5) Global policy, prosperity for all, should be about reliable and affordable energy for all.
While the points are important, there was no mention of debt in this declaration, no explanation of decarbonization (from an opposing point of view), and no other solutions offered to any climate or energy problems. In this case, criticism without solutions is kind-of useless. Don’t you think? Maybe it stops one group in its tracks, but then what? I would like to see the problems from a scientific point of view, not a political one. I would like to know from the climate policy advocates how their decarbonization solves these problems, and from the opposition how it creates more problems. I also want to understand how on earth they can print their way out of every problem without creating chaos. There’s complete denial that currency is even connected to real things anymore. You can’t print food, water, oil, etc. It’s hard to get a straight answer from either side. We need more independent thinkers, who are valued and rewarded by society, to find real solutions to real problems. We don’t need more people fearing retaliation and being punished for expressing their original ideas in a supposed pluralistic society.
Thoughts and Observations
I’m not a scientist, and I can’t tell you if Climate Crisis is real or not. I don’t have the time or motivation to try. What I can tell you is this…both the Blues and the Reds want to print gobs of never-ending fiat currency out of thin air, with total disregard for how that fiat currency interacts with global energy, financial markets, and supply of goods in the global economy. Nobody wants to face the fact that possibly global trade and production are not going to be viable in the future, that whoever invests in all the liability is going to get bagged bigly, that there are just too many people in the world, and there are not enough resources to sustain our ever-increasing modern-day life dependencies over the next many generations. We actually need a lot more small communities and businesses, to work locally, in order to sustain ourselves and our human species. Going local would solve problems for the sake of humanity, but not for the sake of billionaires. Is it no wonder why small businesses and local communities are being destroyed?
What political elites are doing makes no logical sense. I know they’re not stupid, because a secret meeting took place in 2009. But I wonder what solutions they came up with back then; nothing was published. No doubt, they were “in the know” to organize and hold such a meeting together. They didn’t just have coffee and cookies and fly away in their private jets feeling guilty about their carbon footprints with no POA. In fact, I haven’t seen any of them making personal changes in the energy they waste and fuel they use to jet all over the globe for fun. Other than going local, which would utterly destroy global billionaires, the only billionaire-friendly solution that I can contemplate is knocking off “liabilities” by quietly reducing the human population. Call me silly, but I don’t see how printing more fiat currency, accumulating more debt, making government bigger, and reducing carbon in the atmosphere over the next 50 years is going to solve the “disastrous environmental, social, and industrial threat” as reported exactly ten years before a mysterious worldwide pandemic gripped the earth, on top of twelve mind-boggling years of quantitative easing. Do you?
