Is a "Climate Lockdown"
on the Horizon...?
The report, titled "Avoiding a climate lockdown", was written by Mariana Mazzucato, a professor of economics at University College London, and head of something called the Council on the Economics of Health for All, a division of the World Health Organization (WHO).
It was first published in October 2020 by Project Syndicate, a non-profit media organization that is (predictably) funded through grants from,
...and many, many others.
After that, it was picked up and republished by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), which describes itself as "a global, CEO-led organization of over 200 leading businesses working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.".
The WBCSD's membership is essentially every major company in the world, including,
Over 200 members totaling well over 8 TRILLION dollars in annual revenue.
In short: an economist who works for the WHO has written a report concerning "climate lockdowns", which has been published by both a Gates+Soros backed NGO AND,
Whatever it says, it clearly has the approval of the people who run the world.
What does it say?
The text of the report itself is actually quite craftily constructed.
It doesn't outright argue for climate lockdowns, but instead discusses ways "we" can prevent them.
This cleverly creates a veneer of arguing against them, whilst actually pushing the a priori assumptions that any so-called "climate lockdowns" would,
Neither of which has ever been established...
Another thing the report assumes is some kind of causal link between the environment and the "pandemic":
I wrote an article, back in April, exploring the media's persistent attempts to link the Covid19 "pandemic" with climate change.
Everybody from the Guardian to the Harvard School of Public Health is taking the same position - "The root cause of pandemics [is] the destruction of nature":
There is never any scientific evidence cited to support this position.
Rather, it is a fact-free scare-line used to try and force a mental connection in the public, between visceral self-preservation (fear of disease) and concern for the environment.
It is as transparent as it is weak.
The author is pretty clear:
There you have it...
A "climate lockdown" means,
It would likely include previously suggested bans on air travel, too.
All in all, it is potentially far more strict than the "public health policy" we've all endured for the last year.
As for forcing fossil fuel companies to stop drilling, that is drenched in the sort of ignorance of practicality that only exists in the academic world.
It reminds me of a Victoria Wood sketch from the 1980s, where an upper-middle class woman remarks, upon meeting a coal miner,
A lot of post-fossil utopian ideas are sold this way, to people who are comfortably removed from the way the world actually works.
This mirrors the supposed "recovery" the environment experienced during lockdown, a mythic creation selling a silver lining of house arrest to people who think that because they're having their annual budget meetings over Zoom, somehow China stopped manufacturing 900 million tonnes of steel a year, and the US military doesn't produce more pollution than 140 different countries combined.
The question, really is,
But that's a discussion for another time.
Avoiding a "Climate Lockdown"
So, the "climate lockdown" is a mix of dystopian social control, and impractical nonsense likely designed to sell an agenda. But don't worry, we don't have to do this.
There is a way to avoid these extreme measures, the author says so:
"Overhaul"? "reorienting"? "transformation"...?
The elite doesn't want a Great Reset, even if they keep saying they do…
Because that's the oddest thing about this particular article, whereas most fear-porn public programming at least attempts subtlety, there is very definitely an overtly threatening tone to this piece:
The whole article is not an argument, so much as an ultimatum.
A gun held to the public's collective head.
Will there be "climate lockdowns" in the future? I wouldn't be surprised...
But right now - rather than being seriously mooted - they are fulfilling a different role.
A frightening hypothetical - a threat used to bully the public into accepting the hardline globalist reforms that make up the "great reset"...
