One of the funniest lines I often hear from the Left year after year is that an upcoming climate summit or conference is “the last chance” we have to “save our planet”. And recently, CNN made sure to say an upcoming climate summit is our last chance at doing just that. But yet, that’s what the Left has been saying for literally decades now.
Newsweek magazine also offered its own opinions on the matter of climate change, singing a very similar tune: “The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.” Sounds scary, right? If we don’t do something now, we will be faced with a grim reality, right? Well, this was actually from an article from 1975 discussing global COOLING.
Let me show you some other “last chance” warnings the media or Leftists in general have perpetuated:
And there are tons of other headlines that read very similarly, including one for the Paris Climate Accord where Michael Mann writes “Paris is probably the last chance to bring the necessary emission reductions…,” with the media singing a similar tune, saying that Paris was “the last chance”.
Ironically, the U.S. actually held up its end of the deal in reduction of CO2 gases AFTER it left the deal, whereas other countries like France increased their CO2 gas emission.
But we hear over and over again that an upcoming summit or conference of climate “leaders” and advocates will be the last chance we have to save the Earth. Over and over again, experts say that we only have one last chance at turning things around before we reach a point of no return. It’s been literal DECADES that they’ve put up this charade and we seem to be doing just fine.
Just like no one died from the repeal of Net Neutrality or the implementation of the GOP tax cuts (and how no one’s going to die from the ruling against Obamacare), no one is dying from man-made climate change. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH THING!
I concede the fact that the climate does change. The various ice ages the world’s sustained (and we are technically in one now) is evidence enough of that. But there is nothing to even briefly prove that we, humans, are responsible for any change in the climate. We’ve gone through five major ice ages, and more minor ones, and no one can realistically tell me that our CO2 emissions had anything to do with their beginning or end.
And even if any output from us actually did do it, then why in the world are these “climate leaders” and advocates all congregating and meeting in one particular location? Do they not realize that doing so forces them to EMIT MORE CO2?! These climate conferences are such a joke, with these supposed climate experts and geniuses telling us how we should live before, during and after they board gas-powered planes to travel back and forth to these places.
Of course, that’s part of the entire thing. “Shame on thee, but not on me” with regard to how you spend your energy. YOU are supposed to switch to hybrid or electric cars (that do jack-all in terms of reducing oil and coal usage). YOU are supposed to reduce your carbon footprint in the world.
Much of the same can be said about socialism, with socialists saying YOU should be more considerate of the poor while they themselves sit inside one of their multiple million-dollar homes, but this is a conversation about climate hysteria.
As I shared earlier, this kind of ridiculous nonsense dates back to at least 1975, if not farther back. But let’s say that 1975 is the absolute earliest you would find talks about global warming or any sort of climate change whatsoever and having only one last chance to change it. 1975 was over 40 years ago. 44 to be precise, unless you’re reading this article after April 28th, 2019, when that Newsweek article will be 45 years old by that point.
Roughly 45 years since the initial hysteria about a race against the clock in ensuring the survival of humanity and our planet and what do we have? A perfectly fine, habitable ecosystem, but the same hysteria year after year, summit after summit.
So how much longer can the Left say this sort of thing before people start collectively calling out the bullcrap that this is? Again, it’s been about 40 years of “last chances”. And it’s not like these summits are a rare occasion. They happen every year. And every time, we hear that this summit in Poland, or Canada, or Paris, or Wakanda is the last chance we have to save the Earth, when that clearly is not the case whatsoever. And yet, they keep saying it. Why?
Well, it’s certainly not because they are right, or even because they believe it to be right. They create climate models about what the Earth might look like 50 or 100 years from now, when next to no one will remember the asinine predictions. The point of this hysteria is not to be right, or to prove anyone wrong, but to cause enough fear in people for them to want to put into power those who would “save the planet” aka Democrats and Leftists.
It’s nothing more than fear-mongering over an unscientific claim that they say is as scientific as the Earth being round or gravity existing when nothing could be further from the truth.
They say “it’s the last chance” because it causes a reaction in people who are uninformed. It creates a sense of urgency to try and “fix” a fictitious problem by electing those who promise to do something about it when it’s all a PR stunt. The Paris Climate Accord was not intended to actually do anything about gas emissions (as evidenced by the fact that the countries that stayed in the deal INCREASED their gas emissions), it was supposed to be a sign to the world, saying “hey, these progressive, Leftist people are doing something to save the planet!” which will ironically be forgotten the next time there is a summit when THAT summit will be “the last chance”.
It’s not about the planet or the kids or you whatsoever. The U.S. reduced our gas emissions this year, despite our leaving the Climate Accord, but did that make the national news? We are actually doing what these Leftists claim they want to do, but does that matter? No. Because that’s not the point. The point is to attain more power for the Left. Power to influence how you live your very life.
Unfortunately, I cannot answer the title question. It’s largely a rhetorical question, of course, but I do wish it was a legitimate question because this nonsense has to stop. We are no more in peril of destroying our global ecosystem today than when we were first hearing these claims. Why? Because we CAN’T do that. We don’t have the power and capacity to do that even if we wanted to.
If you asked me to destroy the world without the use of nuclear bombs, I would not be able to do it (not that I want to, of course).
But the destruction or preservation of our planet is not the point of this hysteria, as I mentioned multiple times. The point is to get gullible and uninformed people to be scared to death over things that humanity (or Trump and Republicans particularly) is doing to our planet so that those who pretend to be Captain Planet get elected into office so that they can regulate how you live (but never regulate how they themselves live).
It’s all about power – increasing the size of the government. And it’s unfortunate that they can so often get away with these dumb claims. I sincerely hope that more and more people use logic and sound reasoning to recognize that these same people warned us decades ago that we had one last chance and we’ve had about 40 different last chances since then. At one point, that last chance ceases to be a last chance.
