Patrick Moore described the
cynical and corrupt machinations fueling the narrative of
anthropocentric global warming and
"climate change" in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM's Breitbart
News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel
Moore explained how fear and guilt
are leveraged by proponents of climate change:
Fear has been used
all through history to gain control of people's minds and
wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a
fear campaign - well, fear and guilt - you're afraid you're
killing your children because you're driving them in your SUV
and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel
guilty for doing that.
There's no stronger
motivation than those two.
Scientists are co-opted
and corrupted by politicians and bureaucracies invested in advancing
the narrative of "climate change" in order to further centralize
political power and control, explained Moore.
Moore noted how "green" companies parasitize taxpayers via favorable
regulations and subsidies ostensibly justified by the aforementioned
narrative's claimed threats, all while enjoying "propagandistic
protection across news media"
And so you've got the
green movement creating stories that instill fear
in the public.
the media echo chamber - fake
news - repeating it over and over and over again to everybody
that they're killing their children.
And then you've got
the green politicians who are buying scientists with government
money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking
And then you've got
the green businesses, the rent-seekers, and the crony
capitalists who are taking advantage of massive subsidies, huge
tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their
technologies to make a fortune on this.
And then, of course,
you've got the scientists who are willingly, they're
basically hooked on government grants.
When they talk about the 99 percent consensus [among scientists]
on climate change, that's a completely ridiculous and false
But most of the
scientists - put it in quotes, "scientists" - who are pushing
this catastrophic theory are getting paid by public money, they
are not being paid by General Electric or Dupont or 3M to do
this research, where private companies expect to get something
useful from their research that might produce a better product
and make them a profit in the end because people want it - build
a better mousetrap type of idea.
But most of what
these so-called "scientists" are doing is simply producing more
fear so that politicians can use it to
control people's minds and get their votes because some
of the people are convinced,
politician can save my kid from certain doom'...
The narrative of
anthropogenic global warming or "climate change" is an
existential threat to reason, warned Moore:
It is the biggest
lie since people thought the Earth was at the center
of the universe.
This is Galileo-type
stuff. If you remember, Galileo discovered that the sun was at
the center of the solar system and the Earth revolved around it.
He was sentenced to
the Catholic Church, and only
because he recanted was he allowed to live in house arrest for
the rest of his life.
So this was around the
beginning of what we call the Enlightenment, when science
became the way in which we gained knowledge instead of using
superstition and instead of using invisible demons and whatever
else, we started to understand that you have to have observation of
actual events and then you have to repeat those observations over
and over again, and that is basically the scientific method.
"But this abomination
that is occurring today in the climate issue is the
biggest threat to the Enlightenment that has occurred since
Galileo," declared Moore.
"Nothing else comes
close to it. This is as bad a thing that has happened o science
in the history of science."
"It's taking over
science with superstition and a kind of toxic combination of
religion and political ideology. There is no truth to this.
It is a complete
hoax and scam"...
