‘global warming’ to Nazism…
Since the Oct 8 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that we have only 12 years left to avoid climate catastrophe, the lid has been lifted off the Pandora’s Box of climate alarmism. Speaking about climate change in an October 12 PBS interview, the former vice-president proclaimed, “We have a global emergency.” Referring to the most recent UN climate report, Gore claimed it showed that current global warming “could actually extend to an existential threat to human civilization on this planet as we know it.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district on June 26, has gone even further calling for an all-out mobilization of industry “to get us to 100 percent renewable energy” to address the crisis, which she says poses a “direct existential threat” similar to that posed by Nazi Germany during World War II.
Such extreme rhetoric may have disastrous consequences, in particular prompting governments to engage in ‘geoengineering,’ making changes are so massive that it affects the environment on a global scale over centuries. Besides the IPCC’s calls to actually start removing life-giving carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the UN report has opened the doors to reconsidering solutions once considered too radical to even discuss – re-engineering Earth’s stratosphere to create a huge heat shield, by releasing compounds into the atmosphere from high flying aircraft.
“The politics of this were impossible a few years ago. But not so much now,” said Rafe Pomerance, chairman of the environmental alliance Arctic 21.
Considering how little we actually understand about how atmospheric dynamics, such projects are akin to providing the tools and access for a five year old to fix your television set. Except, the results of geoengineering may very well kill us all.
Its time to put an end to the climate scare.
