The poor are carrying the cost of today’s climate policies

Matt Riddly explains that The poor are carrying the cost of today’s climate policies

They may be right; we will see. But, today, we are deliberately causing suffering in partly futile efforts to stop something that is currently doing more good than harm, mostly to poor people.

Global Warming, Walter Williams

Climate change propaganda is simply a ruse for a socialist agenda. Consider the statements of some environmentalist leaders. Christiana Figueres, the U.N.’s chief climate change official, said that her unelected bureaucrats are undertaking “probably the most difficult task” they have ever given themselves, “which is to intentionally transform the (global) economic development model.” In 2010, German economist and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change official Ottmar Edenhofer said, “One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” The article in which that interview appeared summarized Edenhofer’s views this way: “Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection. … The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

The Chelyabinsk meteor explosion as recorded  by a dash-cam of  a truck..

Remember the meteor that exploded over Russia earlier this year?  A 50 foot diameter object exploded 14 miles above the surface of the earth and created a shock wave that injured 1500 people and damaged more than 7000 buildings.  Despite the drama, the lasting effects on the earth were minimal and only small pieces of the meteorite made it to the surface of the earth.  Now imagine tens to hundreds of objects up to several thousand feet in diameter impacting the earth’s atmosphere at one time over hundreds of thousands of square miles.   That would be catastrophic.   Could that happen and what would be the consequences for life on earth?   Well, not only could it happen, there is increasing evidence that just such an event did happen in the not so distant past.  No, I’m not talking about a giant impact that may have killed the dinosaurs or the crater that sits below the Chesapeake Bay or the one in Arizona. I’m referring to the YDB impact event Continue reading
