Why Is Everything So Stupid?
Climate "Science" has Murdered Truth
It is impossible to estimate the opportunity cost of the climate scam, but it is in the quadrillions. Think of all you could have done in the last decades were your family income quadrupled. It should have been. We should be dancing in the stars, the real ones, not among the ghastly baboons of Hollywood. You can always tell an elite scam by the fact that it guts the lower 50%, as it is doing in the demented Dominion where people are actually going without food because of brutal carbon taxes levied all along the food chain. Two million of us are using food banks, 7%, this in the richest country in the world, given our massive resources, our expensively, meticulously educated populace.
The stupidity of gutting the lower 50% is mindblowing, since all prosperity and peace rests upon people thriving and rising. It was the secret of the past three hundred years. Now reversed. Now going into reversal. In Canada, where the climate scam is most advanced (barring Africa), our GDP is crashing hard – 4.4% in the last three months. Will it pull up? Or will it be annualized to 6%, more? Our media is so dishonest it doesn’t report. In any case, no one under 40, reads or watches the news.
And how the left can stand the brutal immiseration of Africa is beyond me. Energy-rich nations like Namibia importing 75% of their energy, the energy owned by Black Rock, Vanguard and State Street. How do they live with themselves? Super plutocrats feeding on the poorest of the poor is the progressive nightmare, its raison de’etre. This is Absurdistan. The left created this monster by throwing their support behind science so corrupt, so unscrupulous, dishonorable, unprincipled, it gives off a stench that has spread across the world. Whenever someone references climate change, I actually feel ill.
This past month, John Podesta suspected pedophile, Hillary’s strategist, the Global Warming Czar in the current White House, called out the stupider members of his vile attack dogs onto Substack. We were accused by a “journalist” in The Atlantic of harbouring Nazis. The Atlantic, an outfit owned by a conscienceless plutocrat who lives off Apple – which uses child labor in China to assemble (those little fingers! So useful!), and child slave labor in Africa to dig cobalt – of harbouring Nazis who made money! As it turned out, there were about four of them, and the most any made was $1200 annually, but never mind! The trope was out there, being shrieked by the disgraced New York Times, itself the organ of another plutocrat who hates us.
The domination of the stupid in the public square is endlessly annoying, so I only scan what appears before my eyes courtesy of the AI bot who believes I must be re-educated. One of my stable mates, Chris Bray, reacted in the manner most of us feel:
Also this month, the stars of Substack, Matt Taibbi and Michael Schellenberger continued their methodical fleshing out of the surveillance state, and how deeply it has penetrated our lives.
I think it flared and metastasized long before 2018, with Obama’s election. He may be a puppet for the hard left, but he sure as hell did the bidding of the plutocrats and the military establishment, creating more foreclosures for normals, drowning Wall Street in free cash, and killing more brown people than all other presidents combined. John Solomon’s Just the News summarized former CIA agent’s book Neutering the CIA that shows how Obama weaponized the CIA against Americans, hiring Democrat activists to attack anyone and anything, like for the sake of argument Substack, that threatened the fiendish combination of progressive and plutocrat hegemony.
Clandestine, another Substacker, made the point that the October 7th attack on Israel looks like an inside job, from neo-liberals trying to effect a color revolution in Israel and to get rid of Netanyahu. I reported that six weeks ago here, but this is not the point. The point being, as Devin Nunes said this week, that Obama’s team is still running the show. Biden, apparently has refused to quit so they can install another puppet, since it looks unlikely that he can cheat his way to victory again. Valerie Jarret flounced out of the White House for this reason.
How did this happen? How did the rational world become one long chain of lies, a complete fabric of falsehood smothering everything?
The Climate Scam. It began with that in the early 2000’s. And now, it blankets everything. This lie has suppressed growth, hope, prosperity, truth, destroyed academia, destroyed government, destroyed scholarship, destroyed reason, destroyed trust in any system. It has ruined your great grandchildren’s lives because the grotesque perversion of truth will destroy human life. Arguably, given that in four generations humans will be nearly extinct, that geoengineering is methodically poisoning the forests, fields, killing arthropods in the soil, the very essence of nutrition and health, we are well on the way
The Climate Scam is the Father of Lies. And John Kerry is its progenitor. Well acquainted with power, he has spent the last thirty years insinuating climate panic into every discipline, every sector, forcing every CEO to confess that what is unreal is real, that what is not a problem is a problem, and demands your sacrifice.
The national security state was tasked with selling the climate scam, bullying every plutocrat feeding off government dollars – Bezos, Musk, Gates, whatever fascist fiend runs Google – to sell this idiocy, this madness. Everyone who protested was sidelined, which means anyone both intelligent and principled was sent to the sidelines. And with the departure of the principled, the unethical, or the go-along-to-get-along gang took power. And to keep power, they lied.
Media were bullied, universities were bullied, every institution was tasked with climate emissions draw-down. If you are in earth, air or water sciences, engineering, climate mitigation is built into every assessment, every development, every business opportunity. Try to get through the first years of engineering without confessing Climate Boiling. This guy from Bloomberg below, is so wrongheaded, so stupid, it actually hurts to look at this header. If this is what they deem truth, the entire human enterprise is in peril. That Gongloff wrote this and that his editor published it, means neither can think clearly, and that they have not done the necessary reading. They have been stampeded by the National Security State, and their pandering stupid owner – all profoundly irresponsible people.
This, of course is why Substack was attacked this month. People can sense the truth. They can recognize it. By the end of November, the top twenty news organizations lost between 13% and 35% of their readers in 2023. Moreover, the loss is accelerating, as the chart below illustrates. The lying is so flagrant, so counter-reality that even glancing up against this level of stupidity feels like a burn.
But that’s not all. Some right-wing news sites are also losing audience share, though not at the clip the statist press is losing share.
They are losing them to Substack. Absurdistan, for instance, has been growing between 12-24% a month. Public and Racket News by Shellenbergerand Taibbi set the agenda for the thinking man and woman at present, their essays thoughtful, methodical, sourced. Their subscribers, and that of many others are peaking into the many hundreds of thousands. I expect both of them to morph into the real thing, a media run by independent journalists and publishers, supported by individual readers. Another point: right wing media with few exceptions - has been shouty, basic, ie not nuanced. Like the Trump full throated penetration of the lies of the left, it was absolutely necessary, but now, people are returning to sourced, analysed, written, pieces. Good writing, complexity, truth, are addictive and as journalists return to the real profession before the CIA and plutocrats destroyed it, right of center issues are receiving serious attention.
When I was writing op ed pieces for national newspapers, I kept getting clipped for word count as time went on. When I went back to the Globe and Mail, briefly, I was told no one wants to read anything longer than 650 words. Not true. Substack pieces are substantial and readers support them. Substack was and remains the source of the Covid and Vaccine investigation, without which….words fail.
When I was working on this, Jamie said to me, “no one believes in climate change anymore, the whole thing is dying.” It is true that most people are sheering away from swallowing the whole climate boiling scenario, but our media is still selling it hard. And in point of fact, the scared scenario is built into every government ministry, state, national, regional and local, into all planning permissions, into every building that is built, every enterprise that is begun, into all taxes one way or another. The Climate Scam is ruthless in its penetration of every human activity. It is the reason why people are using food banks, why our housing is scarce and expensive, why community life is divisive, why people are losing trust in everything any authority figure says. The lies of the Climate Change lobby have polluted every aspect of our lives.
A multigenerational Ponzi scheme to create insurance value?
Let’s start with what the super-culture blares into every media and Hollywood production. This quote from the left, in an attempt to debunk
The bolded sentence above is accepted reality, received opinion, what ‘everybody’ thinks. What we are supposed to think. What we must think, in order to be elected, to be promoted in news organizations, in science, in academia.
Every word in that sentence is a lie. The climate is not changing in dramatic ways. Human activity is probably NOT the chief driver. And nobody is agreeing on anything.
In the Substack tradition I am going to give you the top twenty substantive arguments against Global Boiling, taking the issue out of bloodsport and into investigative argument, with sourcing. This is my purpose: whenever you are confronted with a not-hysterical, not-shouting proponent of Global Boiling, these are your comebacks.
I cannot express how distressing this work has been. I had to clean out my broom closet to calm down. I could add another forty bullet points that punch holes in the catastrophic climate change scenario. That this is not done in serious media, at all, ever, in any systematic way is the principal cause of its collapsing market share. This past week, many analysts were suggesting that the Ivies be shuttered, given the performance of their Vice-Chancellors in Congress. Academia is lying to us, corporations are lying to us. Every institution is corrupted. Individual lives are substantially impacted, population growth has collapsed. We are deliberately refusing growth to Africa and inflicting cruelty far above any colonialism caused. The shame of this will last a hundred years.
I live in a rural area where a skim of rich pensioners, academics and bureaucrats live. The bottom 70% grub along, a paycheck or two away from misery. I look at their faces, showing endurance and lost hope, in the supermarket and seethe. How many lives, how much promise has been lost to this terrible fraud? This is the future, sleek, well fed, government-union-secure, superiors, preying on those below them.
All citations and most quotes from the below book, which I strongly recommend. It’s not just a book. It is the map out of this madness and will be read for 100 years.
