We’ve talked many times about how the child Greta Thunberg from the depths of Europe is ignorant of all atmospheric physics. Ignorant, as in she knows nothing. She couldn’t define CAPE to save her soul. Latent heat is a impenetrable mystery to her. Radiative transfer is to her an alien language. And so on.
It’s wrong to blame this poor kid for her ignorance. She doesn’t even know what she doesn’t know. She’s being used by shiftless activists, lying politicians, the evil media, and other well known lowlifes to push an agenda. Few people can see this.
We know why they use a kid. Because kids are innocent and pure, and we all know they don’t have the same wicked ulterior motives her backers so obviously do. Thus what she is saying must itself be pure and true—or so we are supposed to conclude.
Many do conclude that.
Global cooling started out with scientists as an idea that the earth earth was going to become as frigid as a feminist, which consequences just as dire. Politicians latched onto it because they loved the supposed caused of global cooling. Pollution from burning fossil fuels.
We know what happened next. The atmosphere failed to cooperate and it grew warmer. Scientists changed their minds: it must be global warming and not cooling. Caused by the same thing. The earth was going to be as hot as a Bryn Mawr sophomore told she was only getting a B.
Global warming like global cooling was not a global concern. At first. In the late 1980s, the planet-wide coordination of politics, media, and surveillance was just getting started. It’s going full blast now. Global warming was thus hotter than global cooling.
The atmosphere even cooperated with global warming scientists, at least for a while. The heating has now largely stopped, the yearly temperature vacillating with no clear direction. The promised storms, floods, tornadoes, deaths and disasters never showed. No mass extinction, no shortage of food. Tipping points and final dates came and went with more frequency than with Jehovah Witnesses. Nothing happened.
Which you’d think would have killed off the scheme and made the elite sad.
Globalization of politics came to their rescue. Global warming became climate change, a subtle but brilliant move. The climate will always change, so it is no longer impossible to ridicule the theory’s name with facts and Reality.
Every bad thing every that actually happened or might happen was and is blamed on climate change, and climate change itself was blamed on whatever the elites said caused it. With global cooling and warming, the cause was fossil fuels. With climate change, it was fossil fuels, capitalism, eating meat, large houses, anything having to do with traditional freedoms. Their proposed solution is to have the rabble live in pods and eat bugs.
Propaganda works. It is a cheap and effective way to sway the masses, and in democracies masses must needs be swayed. The oligarchs in the elite were happy to enlist a core group of zealots who believed with all their heart the sky would fall unless a one-world government was instituted. True, some of the zealots’ rhetoric spoke of eliminating the oligarchs (the “rich”), but since they also spread the elite’s propaganda at zero cost to the elites, the risk was outweighed by the benefits.
Sometimes propaganda works too well. A small cadre of environmentalists can be contained if they go too far, but what happens when half the population becomes as zealous as the maniacs? Environmentalism is no longer a kind of sober conservation; it is now a full-fledged religion, a fresh interpretation of Mother Earth cults. The elites have resurrected a very angry female goddess, Gaia. She awaits martyrs.
In a cosmic non-coincidence, seconds after I wrote that last sentence, the Blonde Bombshell forwarded me this news: “My wife just phoned me in tears, a 14 year old lad at the school where she works, has committed suicide because of climate change. Wtf is going on !!!!”
Guessing the form this religion will take is not easy. Gaia is only a goddess, not the God. She can work with God. There was a group subjected at a Catholic mass to a video lecture by little Greta, after which they had “oil placed on hands as sign of commitment to environment.”
But neither does Gaia need God, as this headline proves: Hundreds gather in Switzerland to hold funeral for disappearing glacier lost to global warming. Theologians (women and effeminate men) at Union Seminary bowed and confessed their sins to bunches of spinach. No, really. Most of the addled youth believe humanity will be wiped out soon, because of the possibility of a slight increase in average mean global temperature.
There are dozens of similar stories, increasing in rate. Converts block the highway to proselytize, they march in religious processions (as Catholics do), they scream “Denier!” at heretics. Now as a scientist myself, who knows mountains more than those who scream at me, the experience can seem surreal. Until you recognize the screechers take it is a matter of certain faith that man is a cancer that can only be cured by active supplication to the goddess. Via the intersection of her various priestesses, as is becoming clearer. The picture heading the article is from the site “Awakening Women“, if that’s any help to you.
Expressing doubt—not outright denial, but mere doubt in accord with the best evidence—that we are doomed to a heat or climate-change death is to deny a dogma of the Gaia cult, a supreme effrontery. If it isn’t true the weather is bad, then it can’t be true Gaia needs them. This is intolerable.
That which is intolerable won’t be tolerated.
