The Eco-Dictatorship Coming Your Way

From NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Toby Young writes:

Izabella Kaminska, formerly the Editor of the FT’s Alphaville and now the Editor of the Blind Spot, has flagged up an alarming passage in a document published in January 2021 by Deutsche Bank Research entitled ‘What we must do to Rebuild’. Eric Heyman has written the section about the tough choices the EU must face it if’s to meet its goal of achieving ‘climate neutrality’ by 2050 – Net Zero, in other words – and says the following:

The impact of the current climate policy on people’s everyday lives is still quite abstract and acceptable for many households. Climate policy comes in the form of higher taxes and fees on energy, which make heating and mobility more expensive. Some countries have set minimum energy efficiency standards for buildings or similar rules in other areas. However, climate policy does not determine our lives. We take key consumption decisions, for example whether we travel at all, how much we travel and which means of transport we use, whether we live in a large house or a small apartment and how we heat our homes, how many electronic devices we have and how intensely we use them or how much meat and exotic fruit we eat. These decisions tend to be made on the basis of our income, not on climate considerations.

If we really want to achieve climate neutrality, we need to change our behaviour in all these areas of life. This is simply because there are no adequate cost-effective technologies yet to allow us to maintain our living standards in a carbon-neutral way. That means that carbon prices will have to rise considerably in order to nudge people to change their behaviour. Another (or perhaps supplementary) option is to tighten regulatory law considerably. I know that “eco-dictatorship” is a nasty word. But we may have to ask ourselves the question whether and to what extent we may be willing to accept some kind of eco-dictatorship (in the form of regulatory law) in order to move towards climate neutrality.

When he says we have to “ask ourselves… whether and to what extent we may be willing to accept some kind of eco-dictatorship” I don’t think he has a Net Zero referendum in mind. Rather, by ‘ourselves’ he means the EU’s ruling class. It has to ask itself whether it’s willing to pass laws forcing the EU’s population to modify its behaviour to meet the 2050 ‘climate neutrality’ target, regardless of whether it has a democratic mandate to do so or not.

Read the full article here.

We really should not be surprised. We have had many warnings of what is in store for us in recent years.

For instance, just a year ago the German Health Minister told us himself:

”I think we need certain restrictions to contain climate change. That means less travel is part of it as well. I cannot even rule out that during the climate crisis, we could end up in a situation where we would have to prohibit certain things

The twin scams of Climate and Covid-19 were never supported by the facts – both were false scares concocted by scoundrels for political and financial gain, and to date they are working because most people are imbeciles and easily frightened.
The scoundrels know they are lying and the imbeciles believe them – wolves stampeding the sheep.
The scoundrels even linked the two scams, saying “to fight Covid-19 we have to fight Climate Change” – utter drivel!

THE GREAT RESET: PLANNING THE THEFT OF CANADA?

“He explained, expecting me to agree, that Canada’s present economic model was seriously flawed and had to be replaced. I bit my tongue. He continued, people expected too much, unregulated consumerism was unsustainable and Canadians would have to learn to make do with less. The government would have to take more control over people’s lives and enforce an austere lifestyle. The present high economic expectations are the enemy and we would have to have a strong global government that would redistribute the wealth to poorer nations. Fossil fuels would be phased out on an accelerated timetable and air travel would be limited to need.”

THE MARXIST’S SHOTGUN MARRIAGE: GLOBAL WARMING & GREEN ENERGY m. RECOVERY FROM THE COVID-19 FULL-GULAG LOCKDOWN

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently advocated the “shotgun marriage” of the Covid-19 recovery and global warming alarmism, as stated by its Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Similarly, Prime Minister Trudeau recently announced his “legacy”, an extreme-left Green New Deal for Canada, based on the same bizarre correlation of Covid-19 and climate change. Both are preaching the same irrational insanity.

It is clear that Covid-19 and global warming are NOT even remotely related, and no honest, rational person could be so stupid to suggest they are. Climate activists have certainly been this deliberately, aggressively stupid for decades – that is their standard tactic to shout down the many credible disproofs of their false global warming (CAGW) narrative.

The only common factor in global warming alarmism and the full-Gulag Covid-19 lockdown is they are both false crises, and in all probability are the two greatest frauds in human history, in terms of squandered money and needless human suffering.

Marc Morano describes the WHO’s irrational “Climate and Covid” proposal:

THE GREAT RESET: WHO DECLARES ‘WE CANNOT GO BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE’ – WHO DIR-GEN: ‘COVID-19 HAS GIVEN NEW IMPETUS TO THE NEED TO ACCELERATE EFFORTS TO RESPOND TO CLIMATE CHANGE’
https://www.climatedepot.com/2020/08/23/who-warns-coronavirus-vaccine-alone-wont-end-pandemic-we-cannot-go-back-to-the-way-things-were-in-particular-the-covid-19-pandemic-has-given-new-impetus-to-the-need-to-accelerate-efforts/
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus during a news conference from the agency’s Geneva headquarters:
“In particular, the Covid-19 pandemic has given new impetus to the need to accelerate efforts to respond to climate change. The Covid-19 pandemic has given us a glimpse of our world as it could be: cleaner skies and rivers.”
Marc Morano comments: “You were warned, COVID & Climate – A marriage made in authoritarianism. The morphing of the public health bureaucracy and the climate establishment is at hand. Nothing good can come from this arranged marriage.”

Rex Murphy describes Trudeau’s adoption of the same bizarre “Climate and Covid” plan:
TRUDEAU’S ‘BRUTAL’ ATTEMPT TO USE COVID TO PUSH HIS GREEN AGENDA
An ideological fixation — global warming — is taking over genuine efforts to fix the economy
Rex Murphy, Aug 27, 2020
https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-trudeaus-brutal-attempt-to-use-covid-to-push-his-green-agenda/wcm/ddfb5148-a12c-4e5c-944c-af7e7f4a7413/
“I quoted our new economic czar, Chrystia Freeland, in my last column, saying, “I think all Canadians understand that the restart of our economy needs to be green.” To which I asked, “Where, oh where, did she pick up that strange understanding?” Maybe this would be true if there were a poll taken on Pluto, assuming a few Canadians are there, but not from the Canadians on the planet we are already familiar with.
There is no basis whatsoever for asserting that all Canadians believe (or want) the recovery to be “green.” What that statement really represents in this government’s grossly cynical attempt to leverage the great health crisis of our time, and the dislocation and anxiety surrounding it, as an instrument to pursue its one unfailing objective: to blunt, wound and radically downscale our central natural resource industry.”

The full-Gulag lockdown for Covid-19 was NOT necessary:

As in many other countries, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam followed the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendations for the Covid-19 full-Gulag lockdown. The WHO is a willing servant of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). That is why President Trump recently defunded the WHO.

The WHO greatly exaggerated the severity of the Covid-19 flu, and almost all countries except Sweden bought the WHO’s Big Lie, ordered the full-Gulag lockdown and trashed their economies – even though Covid-19 was obviously much less dangerous to the working population that other seasonal flu’s like that of 2017-2018. That conclusion was clear from available data by early March 2020. The full-Gulag lockdown for Covid-19 was completely unnecessary, a multi-trillion dollar failure that cost trillions, harmed billions and did NOT save lives.

I independently published this correct conclusion back on 21March 2020 based on available data, and it was not a difficult call. How did the “medical experts“ get it so completely wrong? 

21Mar2020
LET’S CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH:
Isolate people over sixty-five and those with poor immune systems and return to business-as-usual for people under sixty-five.
This will allow “herd immunity” to develop much sooner and older people will thus be more protected AND THE ECONOMY WON’T CRASH.

22Mar2020
This full-lockdown scenario is especially hurting service sector businesses and their minimum-wage employees – young people are telling me they are “financially under the bus”. The young are being destroyed to protect us over-65’s. A far better solution is to get them back to work and let us oldies keep our distance, and get “herd immunity” established ASAP – in months not years. Then we will all be safe again.

Sweden did not order the lockdown, took simple precautions, performed better than many other countries and has now achieved herd immunity.
Conclusion: Sweden was mostly correct in managing Covid-19 and other countries like Canada, the UK and the USA hugely over-reacted and were wrong.

A highly competent German medical report was recently leaked that concluded that the Covid-19 over-reaction was a “false alarm”.

The fraud of dangerous human-made global warming and intermittent, diffuse green energy:

We published that the climate-and-green-energy scare was a false narrative in 2002, and by 2012 I wrote that there was a covert agenda. In 2002 co-authors Dr Sallie Baliunas, Astrophysicist, Harvard-Smithsonian, Dr Tim Patterson, Paleoclimatologist, Carleton, Ottawa and Allan MacRae wrote the following which are correct to date:
1. “Climate science does not support the theory of catastrophic human-made global warming – the alleged warming crisis does not exist.”
2. “The ultimate agenda of pro-Kyoto advocates is to eliminate fossil fuels, but this would result in a catastrophic shortfall in global energy supply – the wasteful, inefficient energy solutions proposed by Kyoto advocates simply cannot replace fossil fuels.”

In a June 2007 article in the Financial Times, President of the Czech Republic Václav Klaus described environmentalism as “the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, a market economy and prosperity“. He said that current political and scientific debates on environment issues were designed to suppress freedom and democracy, and asked readers to oppose the term “scientific consensus”, adding that “it is always achieved only by a loud minority, never by a silent majority”. In an online Q&A session following the article he wrote “Environmentalism, not preservation of nature (and of environment), is a leftist ideology… Environmentalism is indeed a vehicle for bringing us socialist government at the global level.”

We told you so, 18 years ago. Now California is experiencing rolling blackouts due to too much “green” electrical generation in their grid, and greens are finally admitting that climate-and-energy was false propaganda, a smokescreen for their extreme-left political objectives. For example:

See Michael Shellenberger’s 2020 confession “ON BEHALF OF ENVIRONMENTALISTS, I APOLOGIZE FOR THE CLIMATE SCARE”. https://quillette.com/2020/06/30/on-behalf-of-environmentalists-i-apologize-for-the-climate-scare/

See Michael Moore’s 2020 film “PLANET OF THE HUMANS”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk11vI-7czE

In a July 2019 Washington Examiner report, Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said: “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all… Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

Naomi Klein, in her book, “On Fire, The Burning Case for a Green New Deal”, also stated that the climate is a “powerful motivator” to overthrow capitalism. “The idea is a simple one: In the process of transforming the infrastructure of our societies at the speed and scale that scientists have called for, humanity has a once-in-a- century chance to fix an economic model that is failing the majority of people on multiple fronts. … Challenging these underlying forces is an opportunity to solve several interlocking crises at once.”

Conclusion

Global warming alarmism and the full-Gulag Covid-19 lockdown is are both false crises, and are the two greatest frauds in human history.

The green objective is to destroy capitalism and move countries into planned Marxist economies – a few rich at the top looking down on the many poor peasants. That model already describes most of the countries in the world.

The book “1984”, written by George Orwell in 1949, foresaw a time “when most of the world population have become victims of omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation”.
 
Here is the REAL “1984”, an interview that year with ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov, who described the slow, long-term “ideological subversion” of Western societies. Note Bezmenov’s discussion of ideological subversion. It’s about manipulating the “Useful Idiots”, the leftists in the West who vote Democrat, Liberal, NDP and Green.


The stakes could not be higher. Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand have already fallen.

transforming them slowly into Marxist entities as we move towards universal egalitarianism

The “egalitarianism” referred to is a classic communist dictatorship with serfs, peasants and elites. i.e., egalitarianism will never exist under such a dictatorship.

“we may be willing to accept some kind of eco-dictatorship (in the form of regulatory law)”

If they came right out and stated that they want a full communist dictatorship, everyone negatively affected would be up in arms against them.

Instead, they make small despotic choices that appear as reasonable while they desperately hide the actions taken against opponents. Each small movement is towards full despotic dictatorship.

Remember, that every communist dictatorship perpetuates crushing citizenry in favor of special treatment for the elites.

If we really want to achieve climate neutrality, we need to change our behaviour in all these areas of life. This is simply because there are no adequate cost-effective technologies yet to allow us to maintain our living standards in a carbon-neutral way.

Here in South Oz the TV weather reports are issuing the usual nannying stuff as Monday is forecast to reach 34C and then 36C on Tuesday before dropping back to 23C with a cool change. Shock horror after a very mild summer to date but MINUS EFFING FORTY!!!

And of course, no news outlet can produce any report on the weather without some attribution to climate change – from the end of the linked article:

Studies suggest that abnormally strong cold spells – like this one – may become more likely, Climate Nexus reports. Rapid warming in the Arctic (along with accompanying losses of sea ice and spring snow cover) due to climate change appears to be playing a role in disrupting the polar vortex high up in a part of the atmosphere, creating more opportunities for cold air to dive south”.

So, globull warming in the arctic causes the rest of the world to freeze. Good to know

Winter Storm ElliottThese idiots persist in naming winter storms, and they are already up to “E”. Reading the linked MSN story, NY governor HOchul makes a typical lake-effect Buffalo winter storm (2 ft of snow) sound like a public disaster. Just a few weeks ago, parts of Buffalo received 6 feet of snow in 36 hours. Then they say 17 people have died due to the storm! So a cold front affects 200 million people, and only 17 died?

Yes it was cold, but most of the nation mainly had cold temperatures and wind. It is not at all unusual to have a strong arctic front in the U.S. in December.

it has often been said, scratch a progressive and you’ll find a dictator lurking beneath.

“The impact of the current climate policy on people’s everyday lives is still quite abstract and acceptable for many households.”

So what is it they contend is going on, if it is glo-bull warming, it is quite cold here in Florida this morning?

Some of them are true believers but quite a few of those in positions of authority are simply fascists dictators trying to grab as much power as possible. And Malthusians believing there are simply too many people and they to be the ones left after they thin out the herd.

[excerpt]
 
On 20Sep2022, Joe Bastardi wrote me noting his concern for a very cold Europe this winter.
I wrote:
”I wanted this Summary published because, IF I am correct and there is a huge cull of the elderly and poor this winter, I want these pseudo-green killers in Britain and Germany to be prosecuted.
There is a powerful logic that says no rational person or group could be this utterly obtuse, this wrong, for this long – they knew what they were doing.”
 
See my 28July2022 comment:
The big cull of the elderly of Europe will happen this winter – we predicted it in 2002 and 2013 – it was all terribly costly – in dollars and lives – and all entirely avoidable – a willful squandering of the lives of innocents. Crimes against humanity.
