Neil Oliver, as always, speaks a great deal of sense. A world government and social engineering of the world’s population, thinly disguised as a ‘climate emergency’, only benefits the rich globalist elites, addicted to ever widening the poverty gap – increasing their wealth while keeping the poor plebs in their place.

There seems to be a common notion that one mans wealth comes from other mens poverty. This is clearly untrue for even todays poor are rich beyond the imaginings of their grandparents or great grandparents. There has always been a scale of extreme wealth and extreme poverty. Todays super rich simply reflect that. So, no. The rush to climate madness is not about greed it is simply madness of the “end is nigh” type.

Largely agree with you but I think it’s more about maniacal power and control rather than just madness.

Soros, Gates, Zuckerberg etc.? All using their extreme wealth to shape the world as they believe it should be.

Gates in particular, I’m certain, see’s himself as some sort of world saviour. He doesn’t think he’s doing anything wrong, he’s just investing money in things he imagines will make everyone else’s lives better. If you’re his highly paid advisor, what do you say when he tells you he want’s to make the world a better place? “Oh no Mr. Gates, you can’t do that”. You wouldn’t last long in your job.

He is, of course, helped along by the likes of, but not exclusive to, the WEF. Now these people are greedy, for money, power and status. They are little people who, unlike Gates, have never had an original idea in their lives. They have never worked hard, as Gates undoubtedly has, to build something of value.

And I only use Gates as a thumbnail sketch of the ‘new rich’ of the late 20th/early 21st Century. Wealth more often that not generated from our digital age.

You might want to do a little more research into the millionaires and billionaires profiting from the Climate Crisis Hoax! Al Gore and Tom Steyer are easy to find, but there are numerous other wealthy elites profiting with help from their government cronies! In particular, look at who profits from wind farms forced on rural communities in Canada, the US and Europe!
Yes, there IS lots of madness in the crowds of true believers, but the Climate Cult leaders are a cynical lot with their private jets and beachfront estates ostentatiously on display to prove their prestige and power!

I think the point is more the green elites want to ensure there is less wealth for everyone else by restricting any means of creation, not that the pie is fixed in size (though plenty people seem to think that, it is obviously untrue just by observation. If it was fixed, we’d still be at Hunter Gatherer levels of civilisation). But while some in the world are convinced the “End Is Nigh!” those are not the ones who will profit from the mandates. It is the ones telling you the coasts will “disappear” underwater in 20 years unless you give up your stove, AC, etc, and then buy a seaside mansion with HVAC, JennAir indoor grill and stove top, and a walk-in freezer.

Not sure if you know it but you are describing UN Agenda 21 and all its spawned programs is.

The UN has taken over the finances of all US and EU corporations. If corporations do not follow ESG and SDG requirements their credit rating is tanked. All part of the UN Agenda 21 which spawned “Sustainability” SDG which Obama forced on all federal departments and agencies through an EO. Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) has begot ESG Environmentalism, Sustainability & Governance, which Biden has endorsed. If you do not desire UN Controlled Globalism taking over the US [Think the EU on Steroids with hundreds of the white EU Governance towers filled with thousands of bureaucrats writing and distributing laws for the serfs to follow and comply with.] learn what UN Agenda 21, Sustainability, and ESG is, does and will achieve. Start by reading about it on Wikipedia.

Lesson One. from Wikipedia
The SDGs are: no poverty; zero hunger; good health and well-being; quality education; gender equality; clean water and sanitation; affordable and clean energy; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; reduced inequalities; sustainable cities and communities; responsible consumption and production; climate action; life below water; life on land; peace, justice, and strong institutions; and partnerships for the goals. The SDGs emphasize the interconnected environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable development by putting sustainability at their center.[4][5]

Exactly. Go green, not Green, practice conservation, not ply environmentalism. At least speak truth to reality, so markets can function to properly assess value and set price based on availability and principles that a majority? A minority? deem worthy.

Neil Oliver- a real voice of sanity and truth. His career producing programmes on the BBC is at an end. He is the best voice in the UK and many call for him to enter politics, but he is too sensible and is more effective from the sidelines.

May 26, 2023 11:58 am

When someone uses the word “green” to advocate for cutting “carbon emissions”, I tell the person that they seem to have forgotten what green is… Then I posit, the best way to be green is to put CO2 in the atmosphere… and that even NASA publishes the greening of the earth with more CO2.

It usually ends the conversation. Seed planted.

‘Good intentions led us to buy a £20,000 heat pump – it’s been nothing but trouble’
Katie Morley Investigates: our reader was left in limbo after a new heating system flopped (nobody will or can fix it)

My relative just installed brand new Vaillant comby gas boiler for a two bedroom flat (60m2), total price including VAT £2050 with 7 year guarantee from this well known and reliable manufacturer. .

e-Scooters and e-Bikes 
We attended over 116 fires involving e-Scooters and e-Bikes in 2022
Fires involving lithium batteries are the fastest growing fire risk in London. So far in 2023 we’ve been called to, on average, an e-bike or e-scooter fire once every two days.
In 2022, we attended 87 e-bike and 29 e-scooter fires, a total of 116 fires.

I take it your relative was not the person in the story who spent 20k on a dodgy heat pump system?

(I always understood these things were just glorified reverse-cycle split-system air conditioners. Air warmers, not heaters.)

Several years ago I was told by a heat pump installer they wouldn’t install one on our solid masonry, Victorian cottage, no matter how well we insulated it as it just wouldn’t work and they didn’t want to run the risk of law suits.

Fast forward to earlier this month when British Gas, the UK’s largest provider of energy, has come out and said they will refuse to install heat pumps where they consider they won’t work well.

That pretty well covers half the housing stock in the UK, at least.

Half? Maybe in towns and cities – outside of those it’s closer to 100% of the housing stock. The only way they could get heat pumps installed across the UK would be to bulldoze the entire housing stock and rebuild – and I think we are all aware of the politicians track record on house building!

In Germany even MSM Der Spiegel hit the nail on the head :
Now we find that the economic advisor to Greens Vice Chancellor Habeck is from BlackRock, the largest hedge fund in the world. – Elga Bartsch was involved before in the 2008 bailout of Morgan Stanley to the tune of $29 billion. In other words a crash and bubble expert. Again MSM :

“Bartsch is considered an expert on the risks of climate change for the economy and its economic modelling.”
Already known is the German CDU Merck being before BlackRock Munich manager.

This current fight is against a coalition of dictators and their minions who claim the science is settled… can’t be against savin’ duh planet – can you?

John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton in 1887 – “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
It should be also said that bad men, acting corruptly, need not be great men in any sense of the term – just gone bad.

All the Climate Catastrophists have to support their prophesies are computer climate models coupled with a catastrophist interpretation of the models.

They try to model a mathematically chaotic system consisting of coupled rotating fluid systems of atmosphere and oceans.Even the most elementary understanding of chaos means one would have no idea what regional climates will be like in 100 years. Anyone who suggests the contrary is a liar, a charlatan and maybe a crook….or moron.But they admit they cannot model clouds, the things that by increasing shade cut out massive amounts of solar energy. They make a guess and incorporate it into their models and then make predictions of catastrophy. Pathetic shyster pseudo science.They adjust historical temperature data by suppressing the past so temperature rise looks larger.They place temperature stations at airports and in cities and pretend to account for Urban Heat Island Effects while ignoring the flatter gradients of rural weather stations..They tell us that more and more folk are dying from climate related events yet Lomborg’s work clearly shows a massive opposite effect, yet they ignore it.They create hockeystick graphs that are debunked by Mckintyre.They ignore the warming effects of removing SO2 from the atmosphere by the clean air acts and all warming is piled onto CO2.They fail to appreciate the greening effects of CO2 which increases crop and natural vegetation growth.They create fear so most scientist who dare to challenge their catastrophist ideology are Emeritus professors..the others are scared.Virtually any serious climatic event is categorised by them as the result of climate change yet Ryan Maue’s analysis of energy dissipation storm events shows an ongoing reduction.They make predictions of impending catastrophy, that don’t happen…over and over again.They propose a crazy energy policy for decarbonising which is clearly wrong and leading to an inevitable point where even our supine governments will change direction…it’s already starting to happen in the EU and Germany. meanwhile China, Iindia etc sit and laugh at their pathetic policies.I could go on and on highlighting the pathetic rantings of the Green Lobby because that’s what it is, bereft of real scientific basis, full of bullying, anti-scientific waffle and money grubbing greed.

More of the world’s physicists, mathematicians, chemists, climate scientists and geologists need to have the guts to stand up against the nonsense we’re contstantly being fed by the charlatans. All power to Neil Oliver for making a stand. ,

Well said bro.

May 26, 2023 4:43 pm

Great sense. My point as a signatory of the Clintel document is very simple. No other argument is needed. The simple fact is that there is only 3% fossil fuel CO2 in the air. So whatever the 50% increase in CO2 means, it’s nothing we did and nothing we can do anything about.

In 1958 after the discovery of radio carbon dating the amount of fossil fuel CO2 in the air was measured at 2.0+/-0.15%.

And this 2023 paper from Portugal is only the latest. (and references the 1958 paper by New Zealander G. J. Fergusson.,dioxide%20mass%20of%203403%20Gt.

(1)   The adjustment time is never larger than the residence time and is less than 5 years.
(2)   The idea of the atmosphere being stable at 280 ppm in pre-industrial times is untenable.
(3)   Nearly 90% of all anthropogenic carbon dioxide has already been removed from the atmosphere.

So while all those arguments are great, fair, true. The reality is that we cannot change CO2 if we tried.

And even NASA has observed that since 1988 the world has greened by an amount equal to Brazil. This means CO2 has gone up 14% and the world has greened 14%.
And how many ‘carbon farmers’ and carbon credits are worthless if it is abundantly obvious that more trees does not mean less CO2. Nett zero is nonsense. It’s not that say a billion trees do not sequester CO2, but that more comes out of the ocean to replace it. This is the equilibrium of dissolved gases dictated by Henry’s Law.

If CO2 went up, its not our fault. And if that produces sea level rise and warming, there is nothing we have done or can do about it.

Political leaders will make the difference. It would be good if all the Republican candidates could sign on to a unified dismissal of climate change propagandas. They could all take a page from the Trump handbook thoroughly denouncing the global warming con. Being “reasonable” about something that has become so completely evil is not good policy.

“I’ve always rejected the politicisation of the weather,” Mr DeSantis said. The governor went on to say that he believed emissions could be reduced by encouraging innovation in the private sector, and dismissed the necessity or effectiveness of government regulations on that subject.6 hours ago

Neil is a gem! His books and podcasts are a delight to anyone with an interest in history and archeology!
Our greatest battle lies ahead, as we climate realists attempt to enlighten the fearful children filled with Climastrology dogma by their schools and the media! Life on Earth depends on an intelligent life form recognizing that CO2 is in short supply (and falling,) and taking on the burden of producing an adequate supply to ensure the long term existence of Life!
Using our abundant fossil fuels as we develop 4G and 5G nuclear is the best solution. With abundant safe and clean nuclear power we can produce enough CO2 to prevent the return to the nearly fatal low levels of the recent geologic past! Maybe use the electricity to produce cement and raise interstate highways and rail beds above ground so that the deer and the antelope (and the buffalo) can roam free again in large swathes of public land!?

This is interesting

Since energy is the currency of the future, the country that controls it will dominate the world. Right now, that is China.

Not because they have fought an overt war for energy with the rest of the world – but because they have successfully sold the snake oil lie of renewables and are both profiting from it and enslaving their adversaries through this fraudulent dependency.

This recent study shows that cold weather we have every year causes about 4.6 million deaths a year mainly through increased strokes and heart attacks, compared with about 500,000 deaths from hot weather.
‘Global, regional and national burden of mortality associated with nonoptimal ambient temperatures from 2000 to 2019: a three-stage modelling study’ 

This article from 2015 says that cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather and that moderately warm or cool weather kills far more people than extreme weather. Increased strokes and heart attacks from cool weather are the main cause of the deaths.
