Laughing All the Way to the Apocalypse By Paul Walker
An insightful article by Miranda Devine, “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Climate Monster,” at http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/rendezview/whos-afraid-of-the-big-bad-climate-monster/news-story/5079c031c43e3de67572402640cc6fc0, makes the point that many have got rich from peddling the idea of a climate catastrophe.
She says that Al Gore is back with a new film and we can expect more hysteria:
“In Al Gore’s latest cinematic dose of climate scaremongering, a young Asian man is crying.
“I feel so scared” he wails, before vision of solicitous uncle Al patting his hand in an attempt to soothe away his fears of the apocalypse.
Scaremongering is what Gore does best, and fear is the business model that has made him rich, though his every apocalyptic scenario has failed to materialise.
In Australia last week to spruik his upcoming movie An Inconvenient Sequel, the former US vice president tried it on again, claiming Mother Nature was “screaming” and the world would descend into “political disruption and chaos and diseases, stronger storms and more destructive floods” unless we buy his snake oil.
Silly Labor premiers bought that snake oil last week, pledging alongside the grinning Gore that Victoria, Queensland, the ACT and South Australia would embrace renewables to produce zero net emissions by 2050.
They haven’t learned the lesson from SA’s extreme green experiment with renewable energy that has produced nothing but crippling blackouts and the highest electricity prices in the world.
Any normal person with such a woeful record of accuracy as Gore would be ashamed to show his face. Eleven years after his Inconvenient Truth movie scared little kids witless, his warnings of climate Armageddon have come to nothing.”
My hypothesis is that people are picking up the idea that there is a collapse coming, but it is not from the climate, which in the long term is always changing regardless of human or other life: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/paleontologist-peter-wards-medea-hypothesis-life-is-out-to-get-you/.
The collapse is socio-economic, and this time, really is human-caused:
Winter is really coming this time, and we don’t need Game of Thrones to tell us that:
Yes, and full of soft porn.
