I need to point this out once again. There’s a democrat in the White House, the kind of liberal elitist who wants to tax your carbon and make you eat bugs and live in a pod, right? And guess what we get:
Here you see how seriously this administration takes the problem. They’re bragging that they’re boosting oil and natural gas production to new record levels next year, which will be the third year of his presidency.
So, I’ll ask you: How much political representation do you think those of us who want to keep our atmosphere normal have? The only thing we want is to have the sort of atmosphere that we had before industrial civilization, without all sorts of human waste products building up that warm up the planet, acidify the oceans and reduce your brain function.
But even with Democrats in power, we’re a fringe minority that’s basically given lip service by governments and otherwise ignored. How’s that for an elitist scam? And yet, the right keeps giving us endless shit, constantly insisting that we must be brainwashed:
“How come RFK jr sees through the vaccine scam, but falls for the climate change scam?” -Every low status white male ever.
Well here’s a suggestion: Maybe he’s smarter than you. Maybe he’s right and you’re wrong. Did that thought ever occur to you?
Big Pharma wants to push their toxic witch brew on you that makes you sick and chronically dependent on more medication. A company like Moderna saw their mRNA junk go nowhere, they had been working on this stuff for years without getting a marketable product, so they moved to producing a vaccine.
Well guess what Big Oil wants? Guess what Big Coal wants? I dunno, maybe they want to continue pushing their toxic products, even as the waste from their toxic junk builds up in our atmosphere and starts trapping heat so that our whole climate is disrupted?
Did that thought ever occur to you, that there might be very rich and powerful people out there, who have a massive incentive to make you believe we can use our atmosphere as a waste dump for the waste their product produces?
Have you ever considered the simple fact that the exact same scientist who was getting paid to deny the idea that smoking causes lung cancer and that CFC’s are responsible for the hole in the ozone layer, started pushing the idea in the 80’s that fossil fuels don’t cause global warming?
Seems a little suspicious, don’t you think?
“Nah he just sees through the elitist tobacco-lung cancer scam, the elitist ozone layer hole scam and the elitist global warming scam!”
Well then he must truly be a lone genius. Except there are other guys he worked with, like Fred Singer, who ALSO somehow saw through the elitist tobacco-lung cancer scam, the elitist acid rain scam and the elitist global warming scam. Another lone genius! And of course he also set up his own advocacy group that got plenty of fossil fuel bucks, because the fossil fuel industry is also filled with lone geniuses who see through all these elitist scams.
These guys of course are just scientific prostitutes, who sell their reputation to the highest bidder. They will argue against whatever “elitist scam” your industry needs them to argue against. They’ll paint a pretty dystopian picture of how miserable the world would look, if the industry that pays them could no longer pay out massive compensation packages to its board members and big dividends to its shareholders, because they have to stop burdening the rest of us with their waste products.
Turns out “Tommy” from the Alex Berenson comments is right. The exact same tactics are used by the fossil fuel industry as by big pharma. But when it comes to the fossil fuel industry, American low status white males insist on swallowing their load like a crackwhore who needs her next fix!
The big oil companies generally had to stop with this in the late 90’s, because it was getting embarrassing. The American coal companies had no such incentive to stop because if we took climate change seriously they would inevitably be among the first casualties. In other words, they have generally been much more blatant than the oil companies have been.
One of the biggest coal player in the US denial industry was Peabody Energy, which officially maintained until 2015 that there is no climate change threat, that it’s actually good for us to use the atmosphere as our waste dump. They funded at least two dozen climate change denial organizations and front groups such as the George C. Marshall Institute, the Institute for Energy Research, Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, along with the scientists most famous for their denial, like Willie Soon, Richard Lindzen and Roy Spencer.
And then there are of course the Koch brothers. They have been funding the whole elitist “global warming is an elitist scam” scam for decades, they were instrumental in starting the scam. And it worked really really well for them. Put together, these two brothers ended up with a greater net worth than Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos.
All they had to do was fund a number of conservative foundations and some corrupt scientists, who would spend their days fooling American low status white males into thinking that global warming is an elitist hoax. The return on investment of their lobbying has been MASSIVE. It cost us our planet, but it worked well for them.
How did they do this? Well it was pretty clever. They know how to play on the average American low status white male’s fears and emotions. Look at what the Koch brother’s “Americans For Prosperity” did in 2010:
AFP’s 2010 Regulation Reality Tour, featuring Smart cars and “carbon cops” at stops across the country, was launched to obstruct U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulation of major greenhouse gas emitters and undermine the seriousness of climate change.92
Citizens observing the tour were given fake citations for mowing their lawns or filling gas tanks, falsely alleging that the EPA would regulate individual consumers.93
Your dumb ass was literally scammed out of having a habitable planet and you still don’t even see it.
