The generals in this war on carbon fuels have no real interest in the facts or science of global climate change. They see climate alarmism as a great opportunity to achieve their goal of creating an unelected global government. They have even laid out their plans in a document called Agenda 21. This group includes the UN, the EU, and left wing politicians and media everywhere.At a news conference in Brussels recently the executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Christina Figueres admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to "change the economic development model" ie destroy what is left of free enterprise and private property.
Then there are the enviro-entrepreneurs forever seeking new crusades to energise their supporters and get the donations rolling in---Greenpeace, WWF etc. (The Greenpeace vandals recently vandalised one of Peru`s sacred sights and may face jail again!--editor). In the dark corner are the anti-human Malthusians and the deep Greens who want to get rid of most of us other people. They are personified by the rich and powerful such as Prince Charles and Maurice Strong. They know that carbon fuels support millions of people by cultivating, harvesting, transporting, processing and storing most of the food that supports the cities of the world. Killing the use of carbon fuels will certainly achieve their goal of reduced world population.
The Chinese of course are great supporters of green energy as long as it is installed elsewhere---eg they supply the machines and solar panels and then welcome the factories forced from the host country by soaring electricity prices. The government bureaucracy and the research grants industry love to highlight the "climate crisis" as it can be blamed for any weather event anytime, anywhere. It is unlikely to be solved no matter how many dollars are thrown at it--a problem that does not exist can never be "solved". The sinister "Greenhouse effect" is invisible, mysterious in operation, debatable and allows anyone to produce their own scare story. However the alarmist empire has a hollow heart----the earth has refused to warm, the alarmist "science" is crumbling, their climate models are discredited, some researchers (even some in US government bodies---see recent articles by Christopher Booker in Daily Telegraph) have been exposed manipulating records and results and the costs of green electricity is skyrocketing. The public is growing restive, governments can no longer afford the climate industry cuckoo in the public nest and the ranks of skeptics grow. The climate revolt is spreading fast.
