Should we be alarmed by the dire predictions that are captivating the global psyche that is driving adults to brainwash children into believing such prognostications? The Green New Deal claims only 12 more years and we are literally toast, unless we spend Trillions to combat this cataclysmic climate change doomsday.
It is of concern that many have come to believe the threat of global warming is far greater than the global ISIS terror war. University of Alabama students quizzed during a protest by Young America’s Foundation were of that persuasion. As one student said, “ISIS won’t be an issue if the Earth isn’t here ya know. Earth will be dead.”
Based on the history of previously projected doomsday, it’s 0 for 41 as laid out in this article by John Naolte dated Sept., 20, 2019, “Climate ‘Experts’ Are 0-41 with their Doomsday Predictions.”
Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with their predictions, but those of us who are skeptical of “expert” prediction number 42, the one that says that if we don’t immediately convert to socialism and allow Alexandria Ocasio-Crazy to control and organize our lives, the planet will become uninhabitable.
Why would any sane person listen to someone with a 0-41 record?
Why would we completely restructure our economy and sacrifice our personal freedom for “experts” who are 0-41, who have never once gotten it right?
Check here to see the list of 41 predictions (with references) that the experts got wrong. The first five:
- 1967: Dire Famine Forecast By 1975.
- 1969: Everyone Will Disappear In a Cloud Of Blue Steam By 1989 (1969).
- 1970: Ice Age By 2000.
- 1970: America Subject to Water Rationing By 1974 and Food Rationing By 1980.
- 1971: New Ice Age Coming By 2020 or 2030.
The emergence of youth-led child strikes
What we should be alarmed about is the perverse and widespread brainwashing, of our young people as well as many naive and gullible adults, with doomsday tales regarding climate change. The Socialists, who, as usual, are simply out to destroy Capitalism by any means possible, managed to convince millions of adolescents around the world to stage a climate strike on September 20, 2019.
Because any excuse to avoid school is a good one, especially when it’s with the blessing of your left-wing teachers and parents, it’s no surprise that so many of the kids took to the streets. The bigger mystery has always been why the Left would create a boogeyman of the weather. After all, we all experience the weather. We know if it’s hot or cold. Who would have thought it was so easy to convince people that their own senses are lying to them and that the climate really has undergone calamitous changes over the past couple of decades?
In the U.S. alone, over 1,000 youth-led strikes were held as students took to the streets to demand, local, regional, and global climate action. In New York City, 1.1 million school students were allowed to miss school for the ‘Climate Strike’ protest. The day before the strike Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter: “Today’s leaders are making decisions for our environment that our kids will have to live with. New York City stands with our young people. They’re our conscience. We support the 9/20 #ClimateStrike.”
Strike originator Greta Thunberg
Perhaps the single most embarrassing aspect of the climate strike is that the notion originated with a 16- year old Swedish girl and environmentalist activist, Greta Thunberg, who has been skipping school every Friday for months in order to save the world.
Greta, having struggled to figure out an environmentally friendly method of travel to participate in the U.N. Climate Action Summit scheduled 3 days after the Friday’s climate strike, and upon deciding that both planes and cruise ships have high emissions, Greta accepted a high-speed racing yacht from the U.K.
Climate activist Greta Thunberg did not mince words when she addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit on Monday, September 23, 2019, claiming the world faces a “mass extinction.”
As Thunberg said:
“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words … entire ecosystems are collapsing, we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”
“You are failing us.” “Young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. If you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. Change is coming whether you like it or not.” Click here to hear Greta Thunberg’s bizarre U.N. speech.
There seems to be one reason only why Greta received so much attention. The left wants to appeal to your emotions. What better way than to spotlight a child. Greta served as a puppet on the climate change main stage.
Employing young people derived from an old playbook
Bringing young people into movements by canny adults with an agenda is an old playbook and clearly seen in the Hitler youth movement in the 1930’s. It is a classic ploy of any totalitarian regime like that seen today in N. Korea where children are numbed and weaponized into belief that the State is more important than parents and reporting them to the authorities for thoughts and actions that conflict or contradict the good of the state is commonplace and without remorse, irrespective of the outcome, frequently assassination of one or more parents. Any N. Korean defector has seen it first-hand. What is China trying to do to Hong Kong? Precisely the same but on an adult and professional level.
Robbing children of their youth is the most insidious aspect of the brainwashing of young people. It is difficult enough to grow up, but denial of one’s youth only makes it worse. Are not our kids anxious enough, medicated enough, hovered over enough and programed enough that one more worry like climate change is too much? Parents wake up, your kids are the pawns of the doom’s day crowd and their short but formative youth is lost and gone forever.
So where do we go to get some truth about the unvarnished facts, and more importantly, sources that do not manipulate data to support an agenda, or at least obscure the reality of what is happening over a longer time frame rather than cheery pick data to support a pre-ordained position. Remember also, the cost of anyone now who even factually disagrees with notion of “settled” science; they are ridiculed, ostracized and careers ruined for daring to disagree and hold true debate.
The video is preceded by a revealing quote of what Dr. Ottmar Endenhofer said in an interview on Nov. 13, 2010 when he was chairman of Group 3 at IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).
“We (UN-IPCC) redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. . .” “One has to free ones self from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. It has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”
In the video, Tony Heller sets the record straight about climate. He has developed software to help climate alarmist know the truth. Heller’s graphs disprove the following manipulated claims of climate alarmists:
- Heat wave increasing since 1960.
- Arctic sea ice declining since 1979.
- Wild-fire increase since 1983.
- Sea level rising since 1960.
Cults, a phenomenon of modern life
Below is an excerpt from Burt Prelutsky’s commentary of September, 21, 2019, The Climate Cultists. As a friend of Burt Prelutsky, he has permitted me to use this excerpt from his article.

“It is a phenomenon of modern life that as membership in the old established religions wanes, cults continue to sprout up like toadstools. Most of them have a very limited number of adherents and unless 75 people are killed at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, or 900 are killed or commit suicide at Jonestown, Guyana, we don’t hear about cult leaders like David Koresh or Jim Jones.
But when it comes to sheer numbers and influence, there’s nothing to match the doomsday cult that has sprung up in the wake of Al Gore’s warning us about the imminent threat of global extinction. What makes the longevity of this cult so remarkable is that Gore’s “imminent” has turned into “eventual” and none of the true believers is questioning the ever-changing timetable.
Even Gore was something of a late bloomer. Starting around 1974, all the experts at the U.N., NASA, the New York Times, the AP, Time and Newsweek, were warning us of a coming Ice Age or fretting about a disappearing ozone layer or something really scary-sounding they called acid rain. But, then, almost overnight, they regrouped and started keeping us up nights by screaming that the planet was in immediate danger of being incinerated.
Gore warned of melting icebergs and rising ocean levels, which simply proved that he didn’t even remember his high school science: if you fill a glass with water and ice to the very top, when the ice melts, not a drop of water will rise above the rim. It’s called displacement
Not to be swayed by facts, NBC has begun something they’re calling Climate Confessions. The network has invited sinners to come forward and testify how they have helped create the existential threat of climate change.
In short, NBC wants us to live a life not worth living, which is essentially a life you can achieve with far less effort by just tuning in NBC News on a nightly basis.”
