At Least He’s Not A Hypocrite … IF He Goes Through With It

3 Oct

Actions speak louder than words.

As with climate change itself, I am perfectly content to wait and see whether 32 years-young Eric actually goes through with his twin commitments, before drawing any conclusions about his sincerity.

From Investor’s Business Daily:

Crying Like A Schoolgirl Over Global Warming Report

Hysteria: A weeping meteorologist says he’ll forgo jet travel and having children because he’s upset by last week’s climate change report. He will likely be the object of much mockery. But might he also be a victim?

Eric Holthaus appears to be a publicity hound crying out for attention. His tweet explaining how he broke down in tears to his wife upon hearing that the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change say it’s 95% certain man is warming Earth is surely self-serving.

So, too, is his claim that on Friday he was boarding “the last flight I ever take” because flying is “not worth the climate.”

The former Wall Street Journal weather writer also pledged to have “no children” and was “thinking of a vasectomy” to help him keep his promise.

It’s OK to laugh at Holthaus. Grown men reacting like schoolgirls should be hooted at with great pleasure.

But maybe it’s not all his fault.

The global warming alarmists have created a climate of madness. Their incessant warnings of worldwide disaster and unspeakable human suffering due to man-made warming have sent some people into a frenzy.

Almost five years ago we wrote on these pages about climate change delusion. The first case diagnosed was in a 17-year-old Australian who refused to drink water because he thought it would cause millions to die from the drought-effects of global warming. He was eventually hospitalized in a psychiatric unit, having been depressed for months before being committed.

At that time, we also mentioned that the psychiatrist in charge of that unit told the Boston Globe that he “has now seen several more patients with psychosis or anxiety disorders focused on climate change.”

There were also stories of children “having nightmares about global-warming-related natural disasters” booking appointments with doctors.

We reported, as well, about the American Psychological Association’s effort to condition the public to believe that humans are causing an environmental crisis, an objective it was confident it could achieve because it knows “how to change behavior and attitudes.”

Is Holthaus a victim of an attempt to whip up hysteria over global warming? Or is he part of the campaign?

Whatever the truth, we now live in a world where it’s fine for a grown man to cry over a modern fable like a child frightened by tales of witches and ghosts.


Some think he’s not really committed …

    The poor man probably holds the belief that Al Gore is the vicar of Gaia.

      What did Darwin advise ‘The survival of the fittest?’ by that he meant, those organisms that live long enough to breed another generation and so on. No loss there.

    Peter Brabeck, CEO of Nestle, recently commented that he believes “water should not be a public right, that instead it should be something only the wealthy have access to.”
    Barbeck said: “Access to water is not your right believing you have a right to water – is an extreme belief. Water is a raw material and a ‘foodstuff’ that should be privatized and commercialized.”
    The IPCC document HS 15332 Climate Change Impacts: Securitization of Water, Food, Soil, Health, Energy and Migration explains how the UN plans to secure resources to use at their disposal.
    Through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) under-developed countries are forced to sell their resources to the global Elite as “full cost recovery” to the global central bankers. Once those resources are under the complete control of the IMF they become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price.
    This scheme makes water sources under central privatization cost more and become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Water prices rise while the quality of it diminishes. This forces natives in places like South Africa and India to collect water from polluted streams and rivers, which compromises their health. The cycle in complete when those who had their water stolen from them through coercion die from contaminated water that they were forced to use.
    The UN Environmental Program (UNEP) in a UN-Water Survey of 130 Countries Status Report have forced reformation through international water laws that apply pressure under the guise of “expanding populations, urbanization and climate change”. While clean drinking water for humans is controlled, improvements designed to ensure freshwater reserves for the ecosystem are first and foremost.
    Management and use of water under the international agreement known as Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) was back at the 1992 UN Conference on Sustainable Development. This is a part of the Agenda 21 plan. Cooperation of the UNEP and the UN-Water, an inter-agency mechanism to control freshwater resources, relates UN policies to governments on how to allocate their assets.
    Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary-General and UNEP executive director, said: “The sustainable management and use of water – due to its vital role in food security, energy or supporting valuable ecosystem services – underpins the transition to a low-carbon, resource efficient green economy.”
    Steiner believes that integrating UN policies for water resource management will facilitate a sustainable approach to water. The needs of the global population, which is expected to rise to 9 billion by 2050, will demand total governance.
    The UN blames population growth combined with communities in rural areas increase the necessity of stricter guidelines to avert “climactic and socio=political disasters”.
    The UN “suggests” that by 2015 all countries develop financing strategies and action programs that adhere to the IWRM. They want all nations to report to the UNEP concerning water resources management so that the UN can assess their progress and make changes as they see fit.
    Simply put, the securitization of water on a global scale, will be run by the UN only. Their target recommendations will then be directed to individual governments to be made into laws. The citizens of those nations will have no choice but to follow the laws of their countries; if they are to get their ration of life-giving water.
    Even in industrialized nations, this will mean the difference between access to fresh, clean water and having to use polluted water sources which threaten our health and well-being

    What pray tell is the ecosystem-based approach?
    Sam Schramski

    There seems to be a logic that if we get away from words that invoke the old neoliberal order, and instead transplant terminology from ecosystem science, the future will be secured for millions of hungry Africans. But the unstated agenda remains capitalist accumulation.

    False Profits –
    Professor Flannery says the council’s purpose is to provide independent information on the science of climate change.
    “We have simply one goal and one objective and we always have, which is to take the science, the economics of climate change and what’s happening internationally in terms of action and present it in a clear and understandable and authoritative way to the Australian public,” he said.

      $900,000 in a week!

      In whose bank account has this $900.000 been placed?

      How much tax will be paid on this $900,000 a week income?

    Perhaps we should join my brother’s campaign to Bring Back The Bomb.

    It all seemed so much simpler then.
