How many times have we heard that life as we know it will end in the next few years unless we fix the climate? Or carbon dioxide is killing us? We need rational debate not hysterics. Joining us today is climate expert Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. She posits that we need first to recognize that climate change is not an immediate threat. From there, we should get the facts straight and keep politics out of the discussion. Any solution should be discussed rationally at the local level, not a one-size fits all approach from the global level. We all know, however, why the powers that be are allowing the global climate hysteria narrative to move forward – power, money, and control.
Narratives can be a tricky thing and for the globalists, they use narratives to convince the public that their gradual stranglehold on control is acceptable. Climate change had been their vehicle for some time but it has been supplanted by Covid in the last two years. Are we seeing a transition back to climate change now that Covid is beginning to fade?
First up this week, Dennis Cuddy joins John and Producer Steve to look at how the various narratives about Covid are falling apart. They discuss all the controversial Covid issues, including the lab-based origins of the virus, gain of function research, adverse vaccine reactions, and even DARPA's involvement. Now that the truth is coming out, thanks to Dr. Cuddy and others, the globalists are scrambling to find another narrative to try and maintain control.
It turns out that transitioning away from the Covid narrative was easy for the globalists – all they had to do was turn to an old favorite, climate change. Joining us is Wesley Smith (humanexceptionalism.center), Director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. We are now being told that climate change should be seen as a health emergency, which would allow for the retention of tyrannical covid policies.
Covid will end, but climate change can be with us for as long as is needed. Our rights would be suspended, and the globalists would be able to achieve what they tried to with Covid. To fight back, we need to expose the truth, which like sunlight, is the best disinfectant.
Are we seeing a narrative transition from 'covid, covid, covid' back to climate change? Back with us today is Wesley Smith (humanexceptionalism.center), Director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. Prestigious scientific journals are now claiming that climate change should be seen as a health emergency, which would allow for the retention of covid tyranny. The covid emergency will end one way or the other, but the climate emergency will last for decades if not centuries. This would permit an indefinite suspension of our rights that would result in a technocracy without end.
It's important to make sense of the turmoil we see in the news and in society. And no one does it better than fan favorite Victor Davis Hanson (victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He looks at the globalists' plan to destroy national citizenry and replace it with a global community. Does the definition of ‘citizen' even matter anymore when migrants flood across the border and aren't made to take a Covid vaccine, but American citizens are forced to, often at the cost of their jobs? The turmoil depicted in the news and seen in society is largely without logic and reason, and because of that, the ‘national citizen' is waking up and fighting back.
America's enemies are hard at work around the globe – what are we doing to beef up our defenses? Not much, as it turns out. Joining us this week is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He points out that the U.S. has not kept pace with Russia and China since the end of the Cold War as far as nuclear capabilities and EMP weapons. We haven't even hardened our grid against EMP attack. Why, despite multiple warnings, are our government and our military focusing on trivial issues and not on defense?
We've seen plenty of examples showing how green energy, beneficial as it may be, is not ready for prime time. Is Great Britain getting that message? Rounding out the show this week from the UK is Dr. John Constable (thegwpf.com), Energy Editor for the Global Warming Policy Foundation. He explains how the UK's climate policy over the past few years focused on the short term at the expense of the long term. Political correctness, media coverage, and other non-climate-related issues are influencing that policy. It's OK to have a climate policy, but it has to be based on logic and reason. Right now it isn't.
Is green energy ready for prime time? As of now, it is not. But is Great Britain getting the message? With us from the UK today is Dr. John Constable (thegwpf.com), Energy Editor for the Global Warming Policy Foundation. He explains how the UK's climate policy over the past few years focused on the short term at the expense of the long term. Geopolitics and media coverage and climate change narratives have all influenced energy decision-making. And the energy sector isn't the only one affected: his country's economy has been impacted as well. He asserts that it's perfectly reasonable to have a climate policy but that policy has to be rational. Right now it isn't.
The latest IPCC report is out and it's – surprise, surprise – chock full of doom and gloom for our climate. Joining us today is Patrick Michaels (cei.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. He points out glaring inconsistencies and faulty science from the report, information given to seemingly further the alarmist narrative. Patrick points out that more and more people are getting apocalypse fatigue as yet another prediction is destined to go unrealized.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC has issued a new report and the collective climate alarmists are doing what they always do – forecasting doom unless we do something drastic. John flies solo for today's podcast, looking at not only the latest climate code red but past predictions of planetary doom that have predictably gone unrealized. There is some sound science in the new report, but the media latch on to all of the dire and crazy predictions. John shows the severe cutbacks recommended in the report in order to save the planet. Politics has distorted the science so much so that we cannot even debate the reality of these cutbacks.
In his speech before a sparse joint session of Congress, Joe Biden uttered the following unscripted words on climate change, "If we do everything perfectly, it's not going to ultimately matter." Well, if that is the case, why are we spending trillions of dollars in taxpayer money to try and fix it? Joining us today is Steve Milloy, Founder of the climate information website JunkScience.com. He points out that even though apparently their solutions won't matter, they are still pushing forward with them to the point where instead of Covid lockdowns, we will have climate lockdowns. So if it won't work, why do it? The answer just may be about ultimate control over everything.
