While there are plenty of things that I could talk about, such as how Jacob Blake’s shooting has only become more justifiable in light of recent evidence or how Kyle Rittenhouse’s case for self-defense becomes more and more clear (and the NYT, of all sources, is reporting this), something that has largely been forgotten in recent time is the nonsense that is climate change and the bogus warnings given by those who peddle the theory that we are killing our planet.
And while I have written about the nonsense of anthropogenic climate change and related topics throughout the past couple of months, one aspect of this subject I haven’t talked about in well over a year and a half is the nonsense of the “last chance to save the planet” the Left peddles occasionally to scare people into giving up their rights and liberties supposedly to “fight” climate change.
The Guardian recently published an article giving us a warning and a “last chance” to fight climate change.
“Thirty years ago we were warned. Now is our last chance to listen,” read their subhead.
“Thirty years ago this week, the population of Earth was given official notification that it faced a threat of unprecedented magnitude. Emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, spewed into the atmosphere from factories and vehicles burning fossil fuels, were pinpointed, definitively, as triggers of future climate change. Melting ice caps, rising sea levels and increasing numbers of extreme weather events would be the norm for the 21st century unless action[s] were taken, warned the authors of the first assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).”
“… Three decades later, it is clear that we have recklessly ignored that warning…. The world could easily heat by 3C by the end of the century at this rate, warn scientists. The impact on the world will, by then, be catastrophic…”
Oh, no! We only have one last chance to save the Earth?! Quick, everyone, listen to these scientists who definitely do not have an agenda nor do they stand to lose anything by going against this political idea that pretty exclusively benefits the Left! Everyone, give up your cars, air travel, A/C units, and for good measure, give up your guns and civil liberties as well. We are fighting climate change, after all!
Yeah, that kind of warning doesn’t exactly lead people to be afraid if it is repeated ad nauseam for decades on end. I literally wrote an article back in December 2018 titled: “How Much Longer Can The Left Say ‘It’s Our Last Chance To Save The Earth’?”
The Left keeps returning to this well, and at some point, the jig has to be up, right?
For example, the United Nations gave us 10 years to save the world. “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed…”
Well, clearly, we must listen to these scientific experts and global leaders at the U.N.! ENTIRE NATIONS ARE AT STAKE! Sound the alarm, everyone! We only have ten years to save the world!
Get ready, my fellow Americans, for if we do not reverse course, the world will end by the year 2000!
Yeah, the U.N. gave this apocalyptic warning in 1989, claiming “coastal flooding” and “crop failures” would lead to “eco-refugees” if we don’t cease using fossil fuels by the turn of the millennium.
And while the Left claims that there are climate refugees in this day and age, that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are radical Islamic terrorists claiming to be refugees (Ilhan Omar basically being one of them) and there are illegal immigrants claiming to be refugees, but none of the warnings the Left has given over the past CENTURY have come to fruition.
Remember George Perkins Marsh? The guy basically heralded as the grandfather of American ecology? Remember how he gave a warning that the planet was “fast becoming an unfit home for its ‘noblest inhabitant,’” and that if mankind didn’t change the way it lived, that the planet would be reduced “to such a condition of impoverished productiveness, of shattered surface, of climatic excess, as to threaten the depravation, barbarism, and perhaps even extinction of the species”?
Need I remind all of us that he gave this apocalyptic warning in 1864, roughly one year before Lincoln would be assassinated?
This is a warning given to us 156 years ago now. Suffice to say, we are further from depravation and barbarism and extinction today than we were back then (well, not counting the barbaric riots going on, at least).
We have far more food today than we did during the Civil War. There are far more people today than there were during the Civil War. And while we, as a country, are nearly as divided politically today as we were during the Civil War, we are still not quite to that level yet. By the end of the war, an estimated 700,000 people died or were killed, which was roughly 2% of the U.S. population at the time. To put that number into perspective, if we were at war today and 2% of our population died, that would equal roughly 6,000,000 casualties. Thankfully, we are nowhere near quite close to that, I don’t believe, even with the animosity that exists today.
So the warning that if mankind didn’t change its ways or there would be savagery, depravity (of food and resources) and possibly extinction pretty obviously did not come to fruition and we are in a far better state today than back then.
Worth mentioning, by the way, that Marsh gave this warning before the invention of the automobile, A/C units and the other things that the Left usually blames for climate change, and still, Marsh felt as though there was sufficient anthropogenic climate change at the time for it to be noticeable and worrisome.
What we have to remember is that anthropogenic climate change is a hoax, but the climate is dynamic and changing and the planet has gone through periods of warmth and cold. That, however, does not signify mankind having anything to do with it, and certainly, having the ability to put at stop to it (which would actually be pretty dangerous, all things considered).
That the Left would continue pushing for the idea that we have a set time period to “do something” about climate change is not at all surprising to me, knowing that their only objective is to use fear to control the masses and to obtain as much power as possible, but it is still extremely asinine in the context of how the climate actually works.
Not that I expect them to know how it actually works, at any rate. I’ve pointed this out in the past, but not one single prediction the Left has made regarding climate change has ever come true. Not once have we seen climate-related flooding, droughts, excessive ice, lack of ice, or any of the other multiple and ridiculous assertions made by the Left.
This is because they are propagandists, not climate scientists or experts or anything of the sort. They only claim we have one “last chance” not because it’s true but because fear is a tool used to control people and the Left are notorious fearmongers.
Still, I do enjoy it every time they issue yet another “last chance” warning. If only it weren’t driving little children to literally have nightmares about something that will never happen. For THAT, the Left is utterly unforgivable (among many other reasons).
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
