4.13 Why is it so important for Climate Alarmists to convince us that we are facing climate Catastrophe


      Climate scientists who scare us about global warming are more likely to make money than those who don't.  Thomas Sowell talks about this in the video below.


       If leaders in government can convince us that we are facing climate catastrophe they can tax companies that emit carbon and redistribute that money to themselves and to their voters and to the needy.  Important Climate alarmists have admitted as much.  United Nations climate official Otto Edenhofer said:

"We redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy"

     One of the motives of people who spread alarm about global warming is redistribution of wealth. 

In 1988, the former Canadian minister of the environment told editors and reporters of the Calgary Herald:

"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony ... climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world."

That sounds wonderful.  However there is a lot of injustice and oppression and poverty that results from forced wealth redistribution.  There are lessons on this web site about that.

Biden agreed in November 2022 to transfer a hundred million American tax dollars to countries supposedly victimized by climate change caused by America.  Many Americans are struggling with inflation that has eaten away at their savings and the value of their money, giving one billion dollars

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's former chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, admitted that the motivation behind introducing her Green New Deal is to overhaul the "entire economy."  The Green New Deal was a plan to spend trillions of dollars supposedly to fight climate change.

Some of the people who warn us about global warming do so because they do believe it will bring disaster to the earth.  In the second video below the speaker mentions Greta Thunberg.  She scolded world leaders in a speech in the United Nations for not taking enough action to stop climate change.  When she was 15 years old,  she started spending her school days outside the Swedish Parliament to call for stronger action on climate change by holding up a sign reading Skolstrejk för klimatet (School strike for climate).  Others joined her and she became a famous spokesperson against climate change.  She believes that global warming will ruin her future and the future of other young people.

The speaker also mentions Leonardo DiCaprio flying in a private jet.  Private Jets produce a lot of carbon dioxide which climate alarmists believe causes global warming.

The speaker also mentioned Al Gore who is a famous environmental activist who raised the alarm about global warming.  Al Gore was also vice president of the United States when Bill Clinton was president. Al Gore also flies around in a private jet.

Obama who has often promised to reduce CO2 emissions, bought a large multimillion dollar property on Martha's vineyard which is right on the ocean.  If he was really believed climate change propaganda he would believe that the seas will rise in the near future and drown his property.  What he does believe and rightfully so is that speaking out against CO2 emissions will get him the votes of people who terrified of climate change and who believe that reducing CO2 emissions will stop it.  Convincing people that a climate change disaster is coming that they will act to prevent is a way to get votes. 

Unlike Leonardo and Al Gore, Greta Thunberg wouldn't even fly in a regular jet.  She sailed across the Atlantic to attend climate meetings at the U.N..  She sincerely believes that global warming will devastate our planet.  Here is a video of her arriving in NY on a sailboat and calling for action on global warming.


In the video below the speaker exposes how concern about global warming is not the only reason for climate conferences. 


Some Climate alarmists believe that taxing fossil fuels and charging for their use will raise money that can be distributed to the poor.  A big problem with that idea is that taxing fossil fuels causes the costs for everyone to go up including the poor.  Fossil fuels are used to heat buildings.  Add a tax to the cost of fossil fules and the cost of heating buildings goes up. The landlords have to raise the rents to get enough money to pay to heat the building.  Fossil fuels are used to move food in trucks to supermarkets.  Increase the cost of fossil fuels and it will cost more for truckers to move food to stores.  The truckers will be forced to charge the store owners more who in turn will be forced to charge the consumers more so that they can pay for the food.   Costs get passed down to the consumer.  Increase the cost of energy and everyone pays more including the poor.  That is exactly what is happening as the Biden administration stops gas pipelines and makes gas very expensive. 

There is a phrase I've heard used by Dr. Susan Crockford called  "noble cause corruption".  The idea is that people lie to advance what they believe is a noble cause.  There has been an awful lot of lying by climate activists to alarm us about the climate.  Not only that they suppress the voices of those who expose their lies.  One of the lies were how polar bears were dying because of global warming.  Dr. Susan Crockford was fired from her job after she pointed out that the population of polar bears was increasing.

Which brings us to perhaps the most important reason that climate scientists tell us we are facing climate catastrophe, fear.  Not fear that there will be climate catastrophe but fear that they will lose their jobs if they don't say so.
