On its face, the World Economic Forum is branded as an organization, "committed to improving the state of the world." However, year after year this same organization uses scare tactics and propaganda to convince people to give up their rights and freedoms in the name of "global safety."
For the past two years, fear surrounding the COVID virus, resulting in restrictions on populations around the world, and the push for a global digital vaccine passport have been at the forefront for the WEF. Yet as the fear around the virus subsides, the WEF has returned to their original focus and their narrative surrounding the "climate crisis."
During this year's 2023 WEF meeting in Davos, "mass extinction," "planetary crisis" and the narrative of billions of people being displaced globally as a direct result of carbon emissions took center stage.
United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres took to the stage to warn of impending "climate disaster," sharing that fossil fuel producers need to be "held to account" and that "these business models are inconsistent with human survival." He compared the fossil fuel industry to the tobacco industry, without once noting that it was the emergence and prevalence of cheap, available fossil fuels that enabled more people to rise out of poverty globally than ever before.
"Scientifically this is not a climate crisis," Swiss scientist Johan Rockström stated during his WEF panel, "we are now facing something deeper, mass extinction". He finished by stating that we are, "really putting humanity's future at risk."
His fellow speaker then went on to bash "greenhouse gas emissions" sharing that, "by 2070 as many as 3 billion people" will eventually be displaced or live in uninhabitable zones, calling this a "justice crisis".
However, a quick look at the history of climate change paints a very different picture.
I joined Charlie Kirk's show to discuss how censorship and climate fear propaganda have been used throughout the decades to keep the masses ignorant and afraid of "mass extinction" tied to "climate change."
For example, back in the 1970's "global cooling" was a major concern, with warnings of an impending "ice age" from climate "scientists" and the mainstream media.
In 1974 Time Magazine wrote the headline, "Another Ice Age?" pushing the narrative of "global cooling".
Then we jumped to the 80's, where the narrative shifted to "global warming."
The New York Times wrote the headline, "Temperature For World Rises Sharply In the 1980's," stating that: "Average global temperatures in the 1980's are the highest measured since reliable records were kept over 130 years ago."
Finally if we jump to the modern day we see the phrasing evolve from "global warming" to the much more versatile "climate change," alongside this phrase come other fear-inducing buzz words such as "mass extinction" and "climate justice".
Sadly, fear has been used for decades to scare generations into accepting unreliable and expensive forms of "green energy" such as solar and wind. A quick search will show the large impact that these forms of energy also have on the environment.
Another talking point used by promoters of "green energy" is how the impoverished third-world will be most impacted by "climate change" and it is only through the adoption of "net zero policies" and lower carbon emissions that we can save these areas.
These types of arguments are what have led us to the ban on sale of new gas vehicles in the EU and in California by 2035.
However, overlooked are the environmental impact of cobalt mining to create the batteries for electric vehicles. Earth.org reports that,"mineral mining, similar to other industrial mining efforts, often produces pollution that leaches into neighbouring rivers and water sources. Dust from pulverised rock is known to cause breathing problems for local communities as well."
Also overlooked are the benefits of bringing a cost-effective and easily transportable fuel supply to third-world nations.
Alex Epstein gives an incredible example of this in his book "Fossil Future":
"The tragedy of babies dying for lack of the energy needed to power ultrasound machines and incubators occurs everyday in the many parts of the world without affordable, reliable energy. Thankfully, it is a tragedy that happens less and less frequently than it used to because billions of people in developing countries like China and India have used fossil fuels to provide affordable, reliable energy" (Fossil Future, pg 8.).
No matter what form of energy we use there will be some environmental impact in some way, shape or form and the complete disregard of the benefits of fossil fuels has skyrocketed energy prices and led to an entire generation fearful of its use.
This use of fear to control our energy supply is one of the main reasons people don't trust the WEF or its leaders, especially when they're utilizing the same private jets, gas vehicles and diets they pretend to rail against.
