The apocalyptic talk about climate change is nothing more than a distraction tactic by the government, the radical Left, and their mainstream press. Multiple laws, trillions of federal appropriations and tax credits, and unfeasible proposals to tackle climate change won’t slow the process. rise of the ocean or heal the planet.
Lobbying is more about climate regulation than about enhancing authoritarian state power, not about protecting the environment.
The radical left has the world obsessing over whether we have 10, 20, or 50 years before our doomsday. The hysteria gives the government a reason to have more control over the energy we use, the products we buy, the homes we live in, the food we eat, and since the pandemic hit when We can leave our homes. However, the data supporting climate studies is rarely made public so scientists can test the studies’ reproducibility.
Citizens of the United States who have lived under one Legal framework contains more than 3,000 separate criminal offenses in 50 titles of the United States Code, 23,000 pages of federal law, more than 200,000 rulesand near-daily Executive Orders that usually limit actions that are considered objections kakistocracy.
In addition, the government has reserves 136 emergency laws allowing it to take control of industrial production, communications and banking, and most aspects of commerce. Most of these emergency laws go into effect when the president declares them in effect.
“Forecast about apocalyptic events that will lead to Extinction of mankindOne collapse of civilizationor the destruction of the planet has been done at least since the beginning Common Era. “So far, this planet still exists. George Orwell notes, “People can only foresee the future when it coincides with their wishes, and obvious truths can be ignored when they are unwelcome.”
In the case of climate change, those who see the future believe that capitalism is a cancer on earth, humans must go, and the truth is irrelevant. The Little Red Book of the Left on the Making of a New Green Republic capture the many statements of the Left endorsing these goals. One of its leaders, Prince Phillip, calmly said: “If I were to be reborn, I would wish to return to Earth as a killer virus to lower the level of the human population.” Maybe Covid-19 gave him his wish?
Radical Left handprints are everywhere. For a year, the Biden administration used executive power to shut down National Petroleum Reserve – AlaskaKeystone Pipeline, and EastMed The natural gas pipeline will supply non-Putin gas to Europe. Without energy, the world collapses. But it is a tactic the Radical Left uses to achieve its agenda.
By shutting down US energy supplies, Biden harms US security and economy. America is forced to rely on terrorist nations (Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, and now Iran and Venezuela), to produce dirty fuel so we can survive. Unless there is an ulterior motive, no sane world leader can put his country in the hands of terrorists.
The radical left plays the federal management system like a grandmaster pianist. With Terms of Citizen Suit Incorporated in all environmental laws, the Left frequently blocks industries that need federal permits.
With the power of citizenship provisions, the Radical Left used the Clean Water Act to regulate farming and house construction, as water flows through the land. The Left uses the Clean Air Act to deny permits for almost any activity that emits gas, including manufacturing, energy generation, and transportation.
They use the National Environmental Protection Act to block permits for years, sometimes decades, driving costs up and bankrupting them, simply by accusing an environmental impact claim of thousands. page is not powerful enough.
In addition to hindering economic development, the extreme Left forces the government to regulate almost every home appliance, including dishwashers, washing machines, showers, toilets, ceiling fans, light bulbs. , heating and air conditioning equipment, stoves, ovens, refrigerators and general appliances. cooking products. Seventy four regulatory standards covering these products.
Another 15,000 products, from coffee pots to ink cartridges, are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Now the Radical Left wants ban many common foodsincluding sugar, chocolate, coffee, meat, palm oil, soybeans, mineral water, plastic bottles, fish, especially salmon, rice and cereals, and any fruits and vegetables that require water .
Another group of Radical Left identified 10 foods that are harmful to the climate: lamb, beef, chicken, turkey, salmon, canned tuna, cheese, eggs and potatoes.
As for the plastic packaging to preserve our food, radical fruit has 25 reasons for banning it. They also want to ban soft drink straws – but say nothing about the billions of pounds of plastic and polysilicon solar panels embedded with toxic metals. They certainly succeeded in increase the cost of petrolFossil fuels power our factories and economies, and thousands of products are produced from petrochemicals: plastics, paints, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and countless others.
Now the Radical Left is demanding the Federal Reserve say goodbye to the bank if they lend or invest in activities that use fossil fuels that harm the earth – but not to extract and process the billions of tons of metals and minerals needed for wind and solar power.” clean, renewable”.
These limitations are not based on science, logic, reality or consistency – but on a political narrative that our way of life will lead to an apocalypse on the planet. The apocalypse story fabricates the government’s real agenda: a more authoritarian government.
It’s all about stupid, arbitrary control!
The only appropriate summary of this article is a quote David Forman, a founder of the radical Left environmental pressure group. Forman said, “Eliminating humanity will solve all the problems on earth, society and the environment.”
Based on hypocritical act of many Leftist leaders – such as Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Lori Lightfoot, AOC, Nancy Pelosi, Stacy Abrams and hundreds more – should be assumed they would be exempt from Forman.
