The birth-pangs of Technocracy are painful and messy
as pseudo-science is pitted against real science.
Climate change (and the COVID-19 panic) are
instruments used to stampede the world into
'Sustainable Development,' aka
Will the lies ever stop?
Man-made Climate Change (aka 'Global Warming') is being used as the
catalyst for tall tales of melting ice caps, drowning polar bears,
and flooded islands.
It's even being blamed for a rise in wars and
poverty. In the name of 'Climate Change' there is a drive to destroy
Free markets and the very concepts of limited Government, private
property, and individual liberty.
We're told that we must all sacrifice and give up our "selfish"
lifestyle as we are required to "live on less" - to save the planet.
And above all, we are warned not to question any of this because the
science is settled.
The debate is over. Stop talking about it - We
must act NOW!
But what are the facts?
What is the basis of the Climate Change
charges, and why is there no room for a difference of opinion, no
matter what new facts may be discovered?
In short, what is the true
Climate Change alarmists claim that about 2700 scientists agree with
them and that these represent about 97% of all scientists.
they claim, it is an indisputable fact. But the fact is, there is no
consensus in the scientific community over Climate Change. A U.S.
Senate minority report says more than 650 scientists express dissent
over man-made global warming claims.
In addition, over 30,000
scientists have signed on to a petition that says there is no
convincing evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane or
other greenhouse gasses causes or will... cause catastrophic heating
of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate.
Now, I'm not a scientist, but neither is Al Gore.
However I know
that true science is rarely settled. Consensus means nothing.
Science isn't a democracy in which the one idea with the most votes
wins. Science is based on fact - provable fact.
It doesn't matter
how many agree or disagree.
Truth in science is all that matters.
But if you cut off anyone's ability to even question someone's
findings you have fallen prey to a specific political agenda. And
that is exactly what we are facing.
You can obviously run down a lot of rabbit holes in trying to
discuss man-made Climate Change. But the real question is this:
climate change caused by man or is temperature change really just
from natural causes...?
That is the debate - the ONLY debate.
answer to that question is mandatory before we allow Climate Change
forces to begin to impose massive regulations that will control,
perhaps even destroy human existence.
Those pushing the Climate Change position insist that it is not of
natural causes. They declare that the warming is purely man-made
from pollution - specifically emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere.
They say that is creating what has been called a Green House effect
as the CO2 becomes trapped, forcing a warming of the Earth.
It's absolutely vital that they win that argument because IF climate
change is actually proven to be from natural causes and not
man-made, then their entire argument would fail and their entire
political agenda will collapse along with their influence over
government policy and their access to massive amounts of money.
it any wonder that they are very nervous about those they call
climate skeptics - those scientists and spokesmen who dispute their
dire findings about the climate?
That's why, to maintain control, radical environmental forces, such
as the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and the World Wildlife Fund,
have used their power and influence over scientific journals to
block the publication of any reports to the contrary. They have
moved to block research grants to anyone who doesn't toe the party
Al Gore has called for Nuremberg-style public trials for
anyone publicly questioning or disputing the claims of global
warming. No discouraging word is to be heard.
But if Global Warming is so real - non-debatable - then,
they so afraid of?
Why such dire efforts to stop anyone from
The fact is - and they are well aware of this -
there simply is no evidence of man-made global warming.
According to scientist Joanne Nova, a former climate change

earth, then, by now, we are supposed to see the first signs of it in
a patch of air 10 kilometers above the tropics. But this hot spot
just isn't there.

year period was basically caused by storm activity on the Sun.

"It's the Sun,
In 1985, Ice cores extracted from Greenland revealed temperatures
and CO2 levels going back 150,000 years.
The original data seemed to
indicate that temperatures and CO2 were locked together, thus giving
birth to both the theory of the "greenhouse effect" and the climate
But in 1999, scientists began to find that carbon
levels actually rose and fell "AFTER" the temperatures did.
2003 scientists had much better data to show that the lag between
temperatures rising and rising carbon levels was a lag of as much as

temperature changes. Something else is causing global warming.
What we have experienced is a tsunami of data from computer models
and government warming data collection thermometers screaming about
massive warming taking place. The models are man-made and THEY are
These are the facts:
There has been no warming - at all - in
the past 18 years.
If anything, we are seeing a cooling period
That is completely natural. It gets cold. It gets hot.
The North and South Poles are not melting.

Global sea ice is at a record high.
So the sea levels are not rising and islands are not about to drown.
And neither are polar bears.

What, then, is the
true end game?
Why are they so
desperate to hang on to the Climate Change argument, no matter
how many times it is disproved?
Christine Stewart, the
former Canadian Minister of the Environment, said,
"No matter if the
science of global warming is all phony...climate change provides
the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in
Timothy Wirth, formally of the Clinton Administration, and now the
President of the UN Foundation, said,
"We've got to ride this global
warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we
will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental
In other words, the end justifies the means!

agenda than environmental protection in the Climate Change
They talk about economics and justice.

theory from paranoid right wing fringe fanatics.
The Club of Rome,
one of the premier power forces working under the UN tent said in
one of its reports,
"In searching for a
new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution,
the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the
like, would fit the bill.
All of these dangers
are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed
attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then,
is humanity itself."
National sovereignty, free enterprise, and private property
ownership were all targeted as an evil oppressor that must be

process moved forward there were public statements that hinted of
what was to come.
Paul Ehrlich, now a Professor of Population Studies at Stanford
"A massive campaign
must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development
means brining our economic system into line with the realities
of ecology and the world resource situation."
And then in
1992, the United Nation's Earth Summit in Rio introduced
the master plan - what they called a "Comprehensive Blue Print" for
reorganizing human society.
It was called

demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of
every human action be integrated into individual and collective
decision-making at every level."
Maurice Strong, Chairman of the Earth Summit, summed it all up in
his official address to the Summit when he said,
"Isn't the only hope
for the planet that the industrial nations collapse?
Isn't it our
responsibility to bring that about?"
And isn't that exactly what we see happening in the United States
and in industrial nations around the world?
Always the same three
words were used to describe the all-encompassing reach of this new
Comprehensive Blue Print. Those words are, Economy, Equity, and
Environment. Better known as the Three Es.
It started as Agenda 21,
Agenda 2030, now it's the
Green New Deal, and its racing
into policy across the nation from city council, to county
commission to state legislature.
Social Equity is based on a demand for "social justice."
Equity and Social Justice require that the world's wealth be
redistributed according to government dictates.
No private property.
No private industry.
Black Lives Matter and
ANTIFA are demonstrating
how 'Social Justice' will work for you.
At the root of Agenda 21 economics are Public/Private Partnerships -

to certain lands for some developers, but not others; non-compete

this quote from the UN's Biodiversity treaty which was also
introduced at the 1992 Earth Summit:

material) where humans are one strand in nature's web and all

Agenda 21 is a threat to our nation, to your local community, to you
- because it IS a comprehensive blueprint specifically designed to
change our way of life and our form of government.
Al Gore, in his
book, Earth in the Balance, said we would have to go through a "wrenching transformation" to rid us of the horrors of the Twentieth
Centuries' Industrial Revolution.
Christiana Figueres (Executive Secretary, UN Framework Convention on
Climate Change), the woman in charge of the drive to impose global
warming policy, said just couple of months ago,
"This is the first
time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the
task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to
change the economic development model that has been reigning for
at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution..."
Can their goals be any

impose it on the local level in every community in the nation.
The American Planning Association
(APA) is the largest planning group in
the nation. They are operating in almost every community.
The APA is
part of the Planners Network which promotes a statement of
principles that reads,
"We believe planning should be a tool for
allocating resources... and eliminating the great inequalities of
wealth and power in society... because the free market has proven
incapable of doing this."
That is what every planner in every
community believes and that is what is incorporated in every
planning program they create.
Author Ted Trainer, explains how and why to impose the local process

"Consumer society cannot be reformed to make it
sustainable or just; it must be largely replaced by a society with
fundamentally different structures.
Local planning focuses on
curtailing energy and natural resource and land use."
"The essential aim is not to fight against consumer-capitalist
society, but to build the alternative to it."
And that's exactly
what Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are designed to do:
build an alternative to our American Republic of elected,

short, they must implement the guidelines of Agenda 21. In the back
