Just two days before the tragic and atrocious terrorist attacks in London by Islamic extremists, London Mayor Sadiq Khan was not impressed by the decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw the United States from the unconstitutional Paris Agreement on climate change.
In a tweet announcing his steadfast commitment to the agreement, Khan declared, “Climate change remains one the biggest risks to humanity. Now more than ever world leaders must recognize and act on this threat”.
If you didn’t know better, propaganda espoused by the high priests of climate change, like Khan or Nye or Gore, might lead you to conclude that “Climate Change” programs are about saving the environment. But, of course, you do know better.
At the local level, these “Agenda 21” indoctrination programs are getting some significant pushback. For example, in Carroll County, Maryland, Commissioner Richard Rothschild coined a new and useful term: “Climateer”. A “climateer” is someone with a vested interest in believing in catastrophic anthropogenic climate change. Two most interesting attributes of climateers are the facts that (a) they have no conclusive facts, but rely on anecdotal assertions like ”97% of scientists believe in climate change”; and (b) climateers are genuinely disappointed when evidence indicates their fears are exaggerated.
To be clear, the issue of whether or not the climate goes through changes has no significant weight. After all, climate has been changing since the beginning of time. The real issues – the relevant issues are:
1) Are climate variances exceeding cyclical norms? And
2) to what extent is it anthropogenic i.e. man-made?
When more closely examined, it seems that exaggerated Climate Change has little to do with the Environment… but has everything to do with Communism vs. free-market Capitalism.
Ottmar Edenhofer, Vice-chair of the U.N. International Panel on Climate Change says, “One must say clearly that we… redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Harvey Ruvin, former Vice Chair of the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives made the claim, “Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective” in the process of implementing Sustainable Development.”
Are you catching these undercurrents of Marxism?
Perhaps the most straight forward is David Foreman, founder of Earth First, and director of the Sierra Club, “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects … We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness tens of millions of acres of presently settled land.”
One way to identify “climateers” is by the changing terms they use. First it was “Global Cooling”. Then, “Global Warming.” Next, “Climate Change”. And now, perhaps the most cryptic term “Climate Disruption.”
So, every time there is a storm, hurricane, tornado, typhoon… you name it… hotter, colder, wetter, dryer, more snow, less snow… see, it’s exactly what we warned would happen. Their diagnosis is always the same. So, what’s the bottom line? What is the “take away” here?
Do not be conned! “Climate Change” is all about just what the proponents say it is about — a Marxist world economy that pledges no allegiance to America, Americans, or the Constitution. In fact, it desires and requires all others to pledge allegiance to itself.
We at Institute on the Constitution believe that it’s time to stop frightening our children with the weather and instead enlighten them to the blessings of constitutional free markets and individual liberty. We are hoping you will join us.
