Cults and technocracies go together it seems, like peanuts and beer.
No matter what is happening in the real world, zealots and mandarins still carry on, filing their green reports, making incredible claims – politically intoxicated, in a never-ending compulsive melodrama. It would be a funny thing, if it weren’t so darn expensive.
In the United States, a ‘polar vortex’ has swooped down into the Midwest, bringing with it a record freeze. It’s a deadly freeze too, and stark reminder of how low temperatures – not ‘warming’, poses the greatest threat to human survival in the Northern hemisphere.
Still, this reality still remains lost on the legions of faithful green cult followers still clinging to Al Gore (image, left) and the UN’s global warming mythology, coloured by more wild tales of drowning polar bears.
This year’s freeze is no laughing matter. Millions of Americans have been forced into virtual hibernation as a result of the latest arctic wave, which is now pushing its way from Midwest states like Minnesota, down to the south and over to the east coast. It is so cold in fact that skin exposure to sub-zero elements can result in instant frostbite. In Minneapolis, low temperatures are predicted to reach minus-24 F, with a wind chill factor of minus-50.
While Chicago’s Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport has seen some 1,200 flights canceled as of Monday, New York’s Kennedy International Airport saw one if its arrivals on Sunday slide into snow as it turned from an icy runway to taxi. Other incidents have been reported around the country.
This is not the first record-breaking cold snap in recent years. North America hit record lows in 2012 along with record snow falls, and record blizzards and ice storms in 2011 . Before that, 2010 saw record low freezes as well. In fact, according to the UN own data, the planet has been in a global cooling cycle for the last 16 years.
And no kidding, it’s snowing in Egypt.

According to one report from earlier this year, “The world added roughly 100 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all CO2 put there by humanity since 1750. Yet, still no warming during that time. That is because the CO2 ‘greenhouse effect’ is weak and marginal compared to natural cause of global temperature changes.”
What about the melting polar ice caps? Well, US space agency NASA has just announced that sea ice in the Antarctic (South Pole) has surpassed 19.47 million square meters as of September – the highest since measurements began in 1979.
How about the North Pole? Despite it’s earlier attempts to hide this news, the UN’s own reports have had to admit how a chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than last winter – an increase of 29 per cent.
It should go down in history as the greatest scientific hoax of our times. Gore said many times that, “the science is settled”, but the reality was that there was never any science to popular global warming theory.
As the UK Mail rightly points out, “The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.” Of course, that 2007 BBC’s report relied on one of those ‘green expert’ scientists, Professor Wieslaw Maslowski, who based his conjecture on super-computer models and the fact that ‘we use a high-resolution regional model for the Arctic Ocean and sea ice’. Yes, another computer-generated reality.
So where does this leave the global warming zealots who are still insisting that Al Gore and the UN’s IPCC hacks’ prophecy of CO2 doom is real?
At some point, even the most faithful cult followers will have to admit they’ve been sold a pup. The computer-modeled, academic concept man-made CO2-induced global warming, or rather, as it has been rebranded for more flexibility, as “climate change”, was simply a creation of high-flying think tanks, egged on by bureaucrats and green opportunists who saw new careers and easy billions that could be conjured out of thin air.
The concept of global warming as a tool of economic and social engineering emerged into mainstream policy in 1991, by way of The Club of Rome ‘think tank’. In their own words:
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill… All these dangers are caused by human intervention… and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself… believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or… one invented for the purpose.”
Here was a neatly packaged ideology ready just in time for the UN’s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
People should consider the ridiculousness – and complete waste of state money and resources, of still maintaining whole government departments of Climate Change, staffed by ‘Climate Bosses’, working to implement more ‘Climate Policy’ and ‘Climate Legislation’. This incredible charade is costing us billions, if not trillions.
Sure, it’s beyond a joke when you look at it all through the lense of reality, but it’s important to understand the context in which this climate drive was put in motion. Aside from the failed Carbon Trading markets, it was a well-placed distraction at a specific place in time especially in the United States, Australia and Great Britain. Look at the timing of the climate movement which went mainstream in 2003-2005. By tying up millions of ‘green’ activists and controlled opposition organisations like Greenpeace, all three of those governments were able to aid industry in making substantial headway in the hydraulic fracturing shale gas, or ‘Fracking’ industry – in a quiet takeover of large areas of rural land and with little or no public resistance. By the time activists copped on, plans were already too far down the road and all the relevant civil servants, politicians and journalists were already bought and paid for. City fat cats and multinational energy consortiums have been laughing ever since.
No Greenpeace ships circling Japan over the Fukushima disaster either. Funny that.
If you want to gauge the disfunctionality and insanity of the Climate Cult, just take at look at how climate zealots are now claiming how, “global cooling is expected because of global warming”.
Humanity is no stranger to mythology. Climate Change is simply the latest mythology for this current epoch, and the elites who control the mythology have always profited and consolidated their power and social control through it.
In the 21st century, you might have thought modern man would surely have advanced past this handicap, but alas… old habits die hard.
