Steve Milloy said CO2
emissions are never going to go down because they are a product
of human progress.
But we shouldn't worry
because this is just another sign of rising living standards.
"The bottom line is
'climate' is not about controlling the weather; it's about
controlling you", Milloy told Marlow, in a broad-ranging
discussion about global warming and the hypocrisy of the
Alex Marlow began by expressing
skepticism about some of the claims made by environmental advocates,
especially the celebrities who insist that the planet is 'doomed'
while continuing to fly everywhere.
His particular obsession,
he said, was the ever-worsening Los Angeles traffic:
environmentalists have solved this problem by now?
How did it get to
become so bad that celebrities - such as the Kobe Bryant - now
choose to fly over it in helicopters instead?
"There is not a
climate bed-wetter who is not a total hypocrite.
They all claim they
are worried about climate change but they don't do anything to
reduce their own emissions. Not that that would make any
difference anyway […]
Emissions are never going to down. Our lives are entirely
dependent on fossil fuels. There is no replacement. Emissions
are going up.
anybody is doing to cut them.
Even when they reduce
their emissions all they're are doing them is transferring them
But none of this is a
problem because standards of living are continuing to rise and rise,
By the end of this
century there maybe another five billion people on the planet but
global warming will help rather than hinder them:
the extra warmth and
extra atmospheric CO2
are helping to green the planet, meaning that it
is possible to feed more people.
Why then, Marlow asked,
do they keep on telling children that they are "doomed"...?
Climate change is completely
There's nothing to
support the narrative. What does the left want? Control over all
And part of its
strategy was to start propagandizing children, which they began
15 or 20 years ago to the point where it is second nature to
them to think:
destroying the planet" […]
It's a form of
psychological warfare. They want it to be on everybody's mind.
Milloy cited the
Australian bush fires as an example of this strategy:
there have been many
bush fires in Australia before (including a particularly
destructive outbreak in 1939) and there is strong evidence that
the latest were exacerbated by arson and by
improper land management.
But it suits the left not
to address these issues because the disaster helps their cause, Milloy observed:
They like to see the
world burning because it plays into their psychological
This, Milloy and Marlow
agreed, explains why in California so little has been done to
address the underlying causes of wild fires.
The greenies don't
want to solve the problem because it helps their cause...
Finally, Milloy talked
She's fronting a
movement and it's hard to know who is behind it.
Chancellor of Germany, german intelligence told her that
[Russian leader Vladimir] Putin was funding this Youth
Climate Strike movement, which Greta fronts…
[…] but you made
a good point at the beginning.
pathetic that climate has now come down to this 17-year-old
girl who admits that she knows nothing about climate

was worried she couldn't […]
The faces of the
climate movement are Greta, a 17-year old school drop out who
knows nothing, actors like Leonardo di Caprio and Hanoi Jane
This is supposed to
be a genuine crisis - yet this is who is pushing it...
