Environmentalists: Treat Fossil Fuels Like Nuclear Weapons

Single-party Democrat rule will mean crazy people in charge of energy policy, because the environmentalist Left is truly insane. Fossil fuels keep us alive by making everything go. Enviroleftists consider these precious sources of energy to be as dangerous as nuclear weapons.

From Grist:

For decades, the potential for a nuclear catastrophe felt like a waking threat, just around the corner. Then, in 1968, many of the nations once responsible for pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war collectively agreed to reverse course, signing the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. …

Half a century later, the nations once stockpiling nuclear weapons are now stockpiling fossil fuels, which are already upending life on earth as we know it.

Progressives believe — or pretend to believe — that fossil fuels make the weather warm, and that warm weather is somehow a threat to life on earth, despite the climate having been far warmer in the past.

That’s why a group of activists, policy experts, and academics are beginning to push for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, modeled off its predecessor on nuclear weapons. Both treaties are rooted in the idea that “there are certain technologies and certain substances that pose such a global risk to humanity that we have an obligation to address that risk together,” explained Carroll Muffett, the president of the Center for International Environmental Law.

Only spittle-spewing maniacs who live under overpasses or work for irrelevant NGOs believe that natural gas is the equivalent of nuclear missiles, right? Wrong:

In mid-December, the New York City Council held a virtual hearing to consider endorsing a resolution for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty. It could become the second city in the world to do so, following Vancouver, Canada — assuming another city doesn’t get there first. The Los Angeles City Council is poised to endorse the treaty… By adopting the treaty, cities could build momentum for a multinational agreement to wind down the dangerous production of fossil fuels — not just curbing emissions — in a similar approach to the global disarmament of nuclear weapons.

The same radicalized party that controls New York and Los Angeles will soon have control of the federal government.

The United States, the largest oil and gas producer in the world, is in a position to become a first mover. As President-elect Joe Biden moves to rejoin the Paris Agreement … he will also have an opportunity to put the country on a pathway to phasing out fossil fuels.

They don’t plan to replace fossil fuels with nuclear energy, but with wind and solar, which are capable of meeting only a tiny fraction of our energy needs.

What they are talking about is limiting electricity and modern transportation to the point that these will be luxuries to be enjoyed on a regular basis only by the elite. The rest of us will live like serfs in the Middle Ages, a way of life that could only support a much smaller population.

The effect on the economy would be total collapse, resulting in the starvation of millions. To progressives, this is not a bug but a feature. Like fossil fuels, human beings emit CO2 and thereby make the weather warm. The fewer of us, the better.

An ideology more conspicuously insane and evil would be difficult to imagine.

Global Warming Cow Masks

It’s not enough to force all people to wear masks. Cows must be forced to wear them too. Progressives fret that cattle emit methane, contributing to allegedly problematic global warming, so…

Zelp, a UK-based company, has developed a potential solution in the form of a burp-catching face mask for cows, designed to reduce methane emissions from cattle by 60 per cent. …

The mask fits comfortably on a cow’s head with a zip-tie-like mechanism allowing it to be adjusted to various cattle’s head sizes depending on the breed. It is applied to cattle after they are weaned, usually at 6-8 months of age, and sits next to the nostrils, allowing the tool to capture methane from their breathing, belches and burps. …

At the tip of the mask, a sensor detects when the cow exhales and the percentage of methane that is expelled. When methane levels get too high, the mask channels the gas towards an oxidation mechanism inside, which contains a catalyst that converts methane into CO2 and water, and expels it from the device.

Not even cows are safe from moonbat intrusiveness. However, cowing them into wearing the masks voluntarily will be difficult. Cattle are likely to find something to scrape the devices against in an attempt to get them off, damaging them in the process. In the meantime, plenty of unregulated methane will escape via the rear exit.

It is doubtful that ranchers will volunteer to invest time and money in cow masks that only a liberal bureaucrat could believe will stop the climate from fluctuating. If the masks are used, it will be because they have been mandated. We will pay for them, either directly through taxes or indirectly through higher prices.

Social Engineers Push Tiny Houses

When utopia is achieved, we will be forced to live in tiny playhouses — for our own good, because living in a rabbit hutch will improve the weather.

First NGOs and corporations have to develop something for Big Government to impose. Carl Pope, former head of the Sierra Club, enthuses over 200-sq-ft Ikea houses that sell for $47,550.

Housing is an important source of climate pollution — directly responsible for about 5 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States plus their electricity. Given Ikea’s emphasis on recycled and reusable materials, the company seems likely to accelerate some important shifts in the housing market. Ikea will also almost certainly take advantage of what it learns in the “tiny” segment of the building market to establish a foothold in the broader, potentially highly green, manufactured building space.

Once Democrats can cite experts to prove that living in a house larger than a one-car garage makes it be too warm outside, legislation is only a matter of time.

[T]he use of rooftop solar panels to generate power and the replacement of propane heating with a heat pump run by those solar panels is likely to become the standard in many states for manufactured homes.

Winter could mean praying for sunny weather so that the heat comes on. That way we will be cozy and snug when we are placed under house arrest the next time a virus comes around.

Bill Gates Funds Blotting Out Sun’s Rays

Leftist zillionaire Bill Gates must be auditioning to replace Dr Evil in the next Austin Powers movie. Now he wants to dim the sun:

According to Reuters, a Harvard University project plans to test out a controversial theory that global warming can be stopped by spraying particles into the atmosphere that would reflect the sun’s rays.

Those rays, along with CO2, are why plants grow. Whether global warming is even a problem is largely a political issue.

Harvard is working with the Swedish Space Corporation to advance this alarming geoengineering scheme.

The Harvard team, whose project is known as SCoPEx, is funded in large part by Gates, according to an August report in the U.K. Daily Mail.

Let’s try to adjust the Earth’s thermostat by blocking out the Sun’s life-giving rays. What could go wrong?

Gates’s megalomaniacal creepiness has contributed to public skepticism of vaccines. With luck, it will have a similar effect regarding belief in the global warming hoax.

Cambridge, MA Mandates Warning Labels on Gas Pumps

Government initiatives to stop the climate from fluctuating are always this silly and coercive. Too bad they are not often this harmless.

The Guardian reports:

Cambridge, Massachusetts, has become the first US city to mandate the placing of stickers on fuel pumps to warn drivers of the resulting dangers posed by the climate crisis.

The bright yellow stickers warn that putting fossil fuels in your car supposedly results in “major consequences on human health and the environment including contributing to climate change.”

Preens a municipal spokesmoonbat:

“The city of Cambridge is working hard with our community to fight climate change.”

These days, the sheer preposterousness of a bureaucrat in a city of 123,000 claiming to be able to improve the global climate with some stickers will not cause most people to burst into guffaws. That’s how inured we have become to being submersed in absurdity.

No word on when they will put stickers on electric vehicle charging stations warning customers that there is no way to generate sufficient electricity to run their subsidized moonbatmobiles without using fossil fuels or nuclear energy, which is also regarded by liberals as politically unclean.

Cambridge is of course home to the prime incubator of the liberal ruling class, Harvard. Whatever mentality prevails there will sooner or later rain down upon the deplorable little people from above.

The War on Christmas and the Global Warming Hoax

Sending nasty anonymous letters to people who decorate their houses for Christmas may generate a pleasant sensation of smug self-righteousness, but progressives must always progress further. What could be the next step in the War on Christmas? Maybe Democrat pols like Cynthia Johnson will dispatch Black Lives Matter goons to firebomb houses displaying colored lights. Or maybe, considering the likelihood that Joe Biden will declare that the global warming hoax is a “national emergency” so that his handlers can implement extreme measures, there will be direct federal action. We might have to ask ourselves: what would Jimmy Carter do if he were on top of today’s authoritarian Democrat Party?

From the POTUS Geeks corner of LiveJournal:

In 1977, Carter convinced Congress, controlled by his party, to create the United States Department of Energy. He intended that its goal would be energy conservation. Carter brought in oil and natural gas price controls. To lead by example, he had solar hot water panels installed on the roof of the White House, and had a wood stove in his living quarters. He ordered the General Services Administration to turn off hot water in some federal facilities, and requested that all Christmas light decorations remain dark in 1979 and 1980.

Today’s Democrats might be more specific and create a new Department of Energy Suppression. We no longer have an energy crisis. The USA has become the world’s leading producer of oil and natural gas. But we will have an energy crisis again as soon as Democrats can impose one.

Bleated Carter during his infamous Malaise Speech,

“I’m asking you for your good and for your nation’s security to take no unnecessary trips, to use carpools or public transportation whenever you can, to park your car one extra day per week, to obey the speed limit [it was 55 mph at the time], and to set your thermostats to save fuel….”

These days Democrats don’t ask; they tell. After Biden’s handlers have created the Department of Energy Suppression, its first act may be to ban Christmas lights so as to prevent the global climate from fluctuating.

Global Warming Hoax to Be Declared “National Emergency”?

This is getting scary. If you think the millions of jobs and trillions of dollars that have gone up in smoke due to the federal government’s authoritarian overreaction to COVID-19 have been devastating, stand by for what they will do to us in the name of the global warming hoax. Joe Biden’s handlers may have him officially declare it a “national emergency,” enabling them to inflict totalitarian measures.

Tony Heller started to tell us about it on YouTube…

…but thought better of it due to YouTube’s increasingly aggressive censorship of any information that could undermine Democrat power, so he is moving to New Tube:

No sane person believes that the federal government can improve the weather by imposing a climate lockdown. But one will happen anyway, as soon as the Democratic Party has the political leverage to impose it.

John Kerry: Biden Will Impose Great Reset Fast and Hard

The Great Reset is not a plot device out of a James Bond movie. This scheme to exploit COVID-19 hysteria and the global warming hoax to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies,” as mastermind Klaus Schwab puts it, is quite real. John Kerry, who has been making a career out of treason since at least 1971, is just the traitor to help Joe Biden impose it on the United States.

The Hill reports:

At a panel discussion about the Great Reset hosted by the World Economic Forum in mid-November, former Secretary of State John Kerry – Biden’s would-be special presidential envoy for climate – firmly declared that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset and that the Great Reset “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

The Great Reset must be imposed quickly, before resistance can get organized, and while the ChiCom virus has most of the population in a mindset of meek compliance with arbitrary tyranny.

Drones Kerry:

“In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset. We’ve done a Great Reset. And it was a record level of voting.”

That is, the Great Reset is already underway in this country, as of Biden’s alleged election. The first step was mobilizing Big Tech, Big Media, and the rest of the liberal establishment to put someone in the White House willing to subordinate American interests to an authoritarian globalist conception of utopia.

This isn’t the first time Kerry has thrown his weight behind the Great Reset. At a June World Economic Forum virtual event, Kerry said the coronavirus pandemic was “a big moment” that opened the door for the Great Reset and that, “The World Economic Forum – the CEO capacity of the Forum – is really going to have to play a front and center role in refining the Great Reset to deal with climate change and inequity — all of which is being laid bare as a consequence of COVID-19.”

The notion that pompous bureaucrats can prevent the climate from fluctuating is preposterous, but the evil they plan to inflict in the name of this hoax is genuine.

Kerry’s use of the word “inequity” should send chills up the spine of anyone who wants to live free. The Great Reset solution to the supposed problem of inequity is effectively the same brand of authoritarian oligarchical collectivism that Lenin and Stalin imposed on Russia and Mao imposed on China, killing tens of millions, and impoverishing and enslaving everyone who survived save the ruling clique.

The Great Reset Explained

If you like the idea of unelected elitist moonbats running your life for you, you will love the Great Reset, which is supported by such luminaries as Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Justin Trudeau. Though it sounds like a SPECTRE scheme from a James Bond movie, it is not a conspiracy theory (as confirmed by the New York Times proclaiming that it is), but a general plan to establish global control and thereby enslave and impoverish the human population in the name of global warming, equity, and COVID-19.

James Delingpole is among the first to sound the alarm on this new implementation of totalitarian oligarchical collectivism. He sums it up:

Put simply, it is the blueprint for a complete transformation of the world economy. There will be no money, no private property, no democracy. Instead, every key decision — what you do for a living, how much stuff you consume, whether you can take a vacation — will decided for you by a remote, unaccountable elite of ‘experts’.

Delingpole quotes Justin Trudeau:

“Building Back Better means giving support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs [sustainable development goals]. Canada is here to listen and to help. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”

It sounds like the standard vaguely nauseating duckspeak we are used to hearing from liberal politicians. However, Delingpole notes that

there is deeper meaning to the phrases he uses: ‘Building Back Better’; ‘2030 Agenda’; ‘Sustainable Development and the SDGs’; and ‘reset’ are all buzzwords for the complete transformation of the global economy in order to create a New World Order.

We heard the ostensibly meaningless “Build Back Better” slogan from the Harris/Biden campaign.

‘Build Back Better’ is the slogan of the Great Reset and the man who invented it, Klaus Schwab. Schwab … founded what is now known as the World Economic Forum. The WEF holds the annual summit at Davos in Switzerland where, it has been said, ‘billionaires go to lecture millionaires on how ordinary people live.’

Up until recently, Davos has probably seemed like a harmless event: a sort of annual joke in which we all get to laugh at the absurd spectacle of the one percent of the one percent turning up in their private jets and their limousines to expound on the importance of sustainability and saving the planet.

The COVID-19 overreaction — and people’s sheeplike willingness to go along with it — has made the joke less funny. As Schwab gloats, “one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles.”

The changes he has in mind for the near future are more radical still.

By Schwab’s own admission, the world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies” — in short, he says, ever industry must “be transformed… we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

Resetting capitalism means abolishing it — or at the very least subjecting it to rigid bureaucratic control, as in nominally communist China.

As the WEF puts it of the coming technocracy that would rule our lives: “Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better.”

At least, it could never be better for the liberal ruling class, which will live like Louis XVI while everyone else on the planet is reduced to a lowest common denominator currently on display in the Third World.

Delingpole provides more detail in an interview with Paul Joseph Watson in the video below. It’s a little long but worth watching:

Climate Hustle 2

Authoritarians have gotten a lot of mileage from the ChiCom virus, but unfortunately for them, it won’t last forever, no matter how flat they get the curve. Soon the crisis of the day will be global warming again. Although less real than COVID, it is a more effective pretext for tyranny due to the years of indoctrination and suppression of dissent that have been invested into it.

Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com continues to expose the phoniness with Climate Hustle 2:

Demented coronavirus restrictions have been no more than a toe in the water to see what we will tolerate. The real tyranny that reduces us to impoverished slaves will be inflicted in the name of global warming.

Here’s a trailer for Climate Hustle 2:

The globalist ruling class isn’t stupid. They don’t think they can control the climate. They do think they can control you.

The Totalitarian Way

You can see why Democrats reacted so hysterically to another originalist who respects the Constitution being appointed to the Supreme Court. They need the Supremes to comply with their power grab. That’s why they will pack it if they take the Senate. Our constitutional rights are inconsistent with the repressive dystopia they plan to impose on us.

For example, suppressing free speech will be necessary if they are to inflict their deranged and tyrannical global warming policies, as Tony Heller notes in the video below:
