Watch LIVE – Who Pays for Climate Alarmism?

The Heartland Institute

Climate alarmists love saying that anyone who opposes their position is a shill for the special interests of billionaires. They should turn the magnifying glass inwards, as the vast majority of funding pushes the false narrative of anthropogenic, catastrophic climate change.

Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, and Linnea Lueken discuss funding behind climate alarmism as well as the other biggest climate change news of the week. Tune in to Climate Change Roundtable every Friday at 12pm CT.

There are a lot of special interests involved, and probably originates in the original SOVIET USSR propaganda on how to destabilize an entire country if not a whole systematic line of civilization such as part of the Long March Through The Institutions. Including early CCP disinformation and now majority sponsored by Red China since they are also the primary economic beneficiary of the WEST purchasing many of their renewable products.

What a better way to completely destabilize a country or world by limiting access to proven reliable affordable energy. Now we see what happens in the UK/EU, California and OZ et al, when you introduce too much unreliable ‘renewable’ electricity into a grid. Same for EV’s which could never be powered by a ‘renewable’ source, since all new ‘green’ electricity doesn’t even keep up with new demand. FF still provides about 80% of all energy requirements on the good Earth. And that won’t change anytime soon.

The war on fossil fuels is lucrative to a lot of people, NGO’s, and foreign and domestic Govt’s because it is a licence for all kinds of things, including collecting carbon taxes and ultimately control people, which is what is so enticing about the subject to autocrats. But it is becoming very rare to find anyone willing to have a rational discussion and debate on the issue, the ‘science being settled’. Ultimately, this is how we know the CO2 ‘done it’ crowd will definitely never be borne out. But it will take time for this to materialize because most of it is just modelling far into the future and those odds about as good as throwing dice.

You got it ,buddy !Whoever denies change of climate? No one, for that matter. What’s under dispute is whether its created by human activities or in-activities or whether its all due to astronomical ( or astral) reasons. Is there not as drastic climate changes in other planets like Mars, Venus , Jupiter and Saturn too where there are no humans at all ? Yes, there is . it means that its a natural periodical phenomena . Some one on earth is making money by falsely ascribing it to human activities .

Win-win all around madness
As Europe’s energy costs skyrocket, Russia is burning off large amounts of natural gas, according to analysis shared with BBC News.
The analysis by Rystad Energy indicates that around 4.34 million cubic metres of gas are being burned by the flare every day.
Experts say the gas would previously have been exported to Germany.
Germany’s ambassador to the UK told BBC News that Russia was burning the gas because “they couldn’t sell it elsewhere”.
Scientists are concerned about the large volumes of carbon dioxide and soot it is creating, which could exacerbate the melting of Arctic ice.

Portovaya is on the Baltic near the Finnish border. Winds are slight, and at 6 a.m. blowing offshore

The BBC tell us this threatens the Arctic when the fallout will be over Estonia.

You have to understand that in the deranged minds of the useful idiots, climate change is the most humungous devastating existential threat ever for the whole of mankind. A threat to the Arctic, no matter how imaginary it is and no matter how many centuries away it might be, outweighs trivial things (trivial in their tiny minds, that is) like Europeans dying in the coming winter and Ukrainians dying in a foreign military invasion now. So Russia burning gas has to be seen through this lens, not through any kind of reality.

Eventually everyone ‘pays’ except very few elites because that’s how Marxism works. Even those that think they will be welcomed to the table of government because of their support are nothing but useful idiots and will be discarded.

Communists (far left socialists) generally always accuse their opponents/enemies on the very bad things they are actually doing. Cough, cough, a place about 1000 miles east of UK just one example. Usually they are wrong and the accused are doing no such thing.

I should have typed about 2000 miles not 1000 miles.

All the billions of money the climate alarmists have had, yet there are still unable to support the scientific method.

Perhaps a better title would be, “Who Profits from Climate Alarmism?”
PS “Profit” isn’t always about the money.

No PO box number there. The only option is to use Paypal.

I would like to have a mailing address for WUWT, too. Then, I would make a donation. I don’t do Paypal.

Thank you Andrew Bolt, one of the few journos with the nous and guts to expose the fraud.

A global propaganda and narrative control program takes great deal of money. Unfortunately, once it gets going the carpetbaggers and scallywag’s, (you all probably can list them from heart) jump in to leverage what they can. After that it is the fearful who become the true believers of climate threat that take the grass roots self righteous bull by the horns…. now instead of one big bull your have millions. This is when the damage happens. This is the synergy that happened with the pandemic propaganda meshing with climate threat propaganda as a political movement. The question is always who knew and why remembering that ultimate agenda isn’t to save lives..
