Much of the present eco-fanaticism with a climate change apocalypse began with The Club of Rome, an early globalist organisation which advocated much the same policies as the present World Economic Forum (WEF). This was kick-started by their commissioned report, The Limits to Growth (1972), which focused primarily upon resource depletion, using early computer modelling of world systems. Climate change was seen as one possible consequence of economic growth, but the main concern was with limitations, and ultimate collapse. At the time there was scientific thought that the world was heading to global cooling, but that hypothesis, while quite reasonable, did not merit winding down industrialisation, so, it did not prevail.
The 1980s saw the sustainable development religion get into full swing, with the publication of Our Common Future (1987), by the United Nations. Climate change had now become the Big Thing, and the next year, 1988, saw the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) set up, and reporting. The climate change elites were born, and have never looked back since, with it all formalised in Agenda 2030, which is the year they think the New WorldOrder wil be up, and immutable, set in prison stone. And, here we are today, with the attack upon agriculture, meat and fossil fuels. But, it all could have been foreseen back in the heady days of 1988, just as the immigration crisis of today could have been seen around the same time.
