[Article by Carl Brehmer]
Those who support the UN’s “Climate Change” agenda feign concern for “the poor”, yet the agenda itself is determined to lock those under its sway into perpetual poverty. At its core the UN’s “Climate Change” agenda is a war on the burning of hydrocarbons for energy – the thing that has been primarily responsible for the creation of wealth over the past 150 years. Perhaps we should start by defining “poverty” and “wealth”.
The “poor” are those who are forced by circumstance to live solely on what the Earth’s climate, A.K.A. nature, provides. They are forced by circumstance to live without the benefits of hydrocarbon energy. The “wealthy” are those who have free access to the benefits that the burning of hydrocarbons for energy provides.
What the Earth’s climate provides: Nothing except unheated caves
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Hydrocarbon energy is employed in every facet of modern home building and modern housing protection us from the wind and rain.
-Heating and cooling-
What the Earth’s climate provides: Large swings between temperatures hot and cold. Plus, without artificial heating and cooling large swaths of the Earth’s surface now inhabited by thriving civilizations would be uninhabitable.
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Central heating and cooling which keeps people in the norther latitudes from freezing to death in the winter and the people living in desert regions (3+ million people in Phoenix, AZ for example) from dying of heat stroke and dehydration in the summer.
What the Earth’s climate provides: Very little, i.e., only that which can be gathered.
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Modern agriculture, which uses hydrocarbon energy in every facet of production, processing and transportation, currently feeds the Earth’s ~7 billion population. Prior to the widespread use of hydrocarbon energy, the global population only reached ~1 billion people.
-Ability to cook food-
What the Earth’s climate provides: Twigs and dung
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Gas and electric ranges and ovens and microwaves.
What the Earth’s climate provides: springs, streams, rivers and fresh water lakes
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Prior to modern hydrocarbon powered water works human beings could only survive along springs, streams, rivers and fresh water lakes. Through the use of hydrocarbon energy virtually every house in the modern world, many at great distances from springs, streams, rivers and fresh water lakes, has running potable water.
What the Earth’s climate provides: periodic rain along with bathing in springs, streams, rivers and fresh water lakes. Clothes had to be washed by hand in the nearby springs, streams, rivers and fresh water lakes. This would, of course, pollute the water for those drinking the same water downstream. This intern results in the epidemic of intestinal diseases rampant in the third world.
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Hot showers and clothes washing machines and clothes dryers.
What the Earth’s climate provides: nothing, so people would often dig holes over which they would put “out houses” in an attempt to contain human waste. In poor cities raw sewage runs freely in the streets.
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Flushing toilets, which channels the human waste to sewage treatment plants.
-Modern Medical Care-
What the Earth’s climate provides: some medicinal herbs
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Modern hospital facilities and a large array of pharmaceutics
What the Earth’s climate provides: legs, horses and mules, wind
What hydrocarbon energy provides: Planes, trains, automobiles and ocean liners, which transport people and goods around the world at remarkable speeds
What the Earth’s climate provides: yelling, smoke signals, drums, pony express
What hydrocarbon energy provides: nearly instantaneous, global communication
As you can see, the Earth’s climate is naturally very hostile and very unsafe for human beings and when people are forced to live solely on what nature provides we call them “the poor”. The development and use of hydrocarbon energy has released humanity from that very hostile and unsafe environment and made living on Earth rather pleasant. The UN’s “Climate Change” agenda seeks to reverse this trend by turning off that which has enabled humanity to deal with the Earth’s naturally hostile and unsafe climate – hydrocarbon energy. Why? Because they say that the continued use of hydrocarbon energy will change the Earth’s climate into one that is hostile and unsafe for human beings.
News flash: The Earth’s climate has always been hostile and unsafe for human beings. It does not have to “change” to become so. Hydrocarbon energy has allowed the modern world to crawl out of the poverty that has plagued it from time immemorial and it will continue to do so unless the UN gets its way. If the UN’s “Climate Change” agenda succeeds humanity will be driven back into the grinding poverty that was the reality of pre-hydrocarbon life on this planet and is the current reality of those people who live without the benefits of hydrocarbon energy. The fact that the Earth’s climate is changing only changes the challenges that face human beings as they struggle to survive and even thrive within the Earth’s naturally hostile and unsafe climate – challenges that hydrocarbon energy will enable us to continue overcoming.
To the point, if you are against the use of hydrocarbon energy, then you are against modern housing with central heating and cooling. You are against feeding the world’s ~7 billion population. You are against cooking with gas and electricity. You are against clean water for everyone. You are against hot showers and washing machines. You are against flushing toilets and modern sewage treatment. You are against modern hospital facilities and pharmaceuticals. You are against modern transportation and you are against nearly instantaneous, global communication. If you are against the use of hydrocarbon energy, then you are in favor of forcing humanity to live solely on what the Earth’s climate, A.K.A. nature, provides, which is very little indeed – you are in favor of abject poverty.
[JP Comment: As I said in my webcast and previously lots of times, climate alarm is an attack on human existence. It is a direct attack. This is no game folks. And the stakes couldn’t be any higher. This is about the survival of the human race. The enemy has succeeded to such an extent that they have gotten even physics academia to teach flat earth physics! They are destroying knowledge, destroying science, destroying our minds and they intend to physically destroy 19 in 20 of us, by their own admission! They have succeeded to such an extent that science education now teaches our children that the non-existence of humanity would be better than our existence! They are teaching your children flat Earth physics, and teaching them to hate themselves, and teaching them to believe in something that will end with mass death. These “people” are effectively goblins from Mordor plotting the destruction of the World of Man.]
A comment from elsewhere on my blog and a reply:
comment: “Sorry guys…political groups are not seeing shifts in IQ. The cons are not “smarter” than they were. In fact, conservatism is anti-intellectual, anti-meritocratic, and anti-naturalistic at its roots. Well, liberalism can certainly be polluted by cons.”
reply: “In today’s West, it is the right who stands for merit, intellectualism, natural facts, etc. Whereas the left stands for denying value judgments about anything whatsoever at all, and that by definition is anti-meritocratic, anti-intellectual, anti-naturalistic, etc. You cannot be meritocratic if you deny judging for value. The left is an anti-human aberration or some form of non-Earth-based “perversion”, fitting neither the male nor female mold. On Earth, males compete for merit and the females select for merit. All higher life on Earth works this way. Proper Earth-humans are right wing in today’s political environment, both male and female, whereas the males and females who are today’s leftists do not really fit into Earth life at all – in fact, they are anti Earth life and they openly seek to destroy humanity through their programs of climate alarm, etc. Today’s left doesn’t really belong to Earth’s mammalian animal kingdom at all. It’s like they’re aliens…anti-meritocratic aliens.”
And I really like this too:
“To the point, if you are against the use of hydrocarbon energy, then you are against modern housing with central heating and cooling. You are against feeding the world’s ~7 billion population.

They accuse US of being so many things – anti-science, deniers, Nazi’s, etc etc. We’re not any of the things that they call us, but they however definitely are against all of the things listed above, and are definitely for what being against those things leads to!
Thanks for this. The above comment about Left vs. Right voters – my take is that there is a fluidity these days in that divide, and we may be approaching a post partisan era, where people generally agree on what has to be done.
The Progressive movement are behind this state of affairs, networks of ‘common cause NGO’s tax exempt foundations, a myriad of SIF’s all under the SJ banner, all plugged into O’Bama’s institutions, the UN billionaire lefties, and the real; malevolence behind the left, the Chinese billions funnelled through their networks, paying off a 100 fold in its stifling of western society and our values, splintering us, confusing us, whilst they push policy change snick by snick, day in day out, they mould us into what we are not, eventually we will mutually destroy ourselves,…..
And then we will all become Chinese, they’ve lost doing it the ”nice” peaceful way, via globalisation, bringing down the west peacefully, without destroying the world can only be done from within, hence the hijacking of the self titled and identifying ”intellectuals”.
I dont know whether the Chinese are opportunist, or playing a 40/50 yr long game, but Davos for me, made it quiet clear their mask is off, they nearly did it, a decade away at most to a globally uniting taxation, then a never ending stream of policy, binding the world together, single currency, world health organisation becoming the NHS of the world erc,…..all pure star trek fantasy.
Their problems are simple, the majority in the west, don’t like progressives, doesn’t matter what party or institution they infest through ‘free mason” like networks, hiring and promoting their own
We see it, we tolerate the parasites in all professions we see it.daily, we despise it eventually,…
They missed us disliking them, they missed us disliking their policy, they didn’t miss us voting them out at the first opportunity,.
Unique co-incidence and typical progressive arrogant posturing brought 40 yrs of International political positioning in their instruments of power,to an end, all those university prodigy’s churned out by the 1000s with their numbed down degrees and ‘ologYs’ , to fill the great progressive jobs creation schemes in the consensus sciences, by defining every aspect of life a science, and controlling policy thru bought and paid for science, a unique co-incidence of a country and a man making a stand against progressivism, have destroyed it,…..
All their spheres of influence swept away, one man, independent of party, gets control of the beating heart that nourished it all, the American tax payer, and who or what gets funded.
Camerons smug posturing to get elected, and a promise made when he thought he couldn’t possibly lose…….he did,…….and in doing so wounded the European project mortally, Trumps win making the EU now terminal,
And trump running under a flag of convenience, un-touchable by progressive influence, infact the exact opposite, he despises them, their media and everything about them, they are on O’bama funding until September,……then they vanish, departments dissolved, reformed merged re-staffed, and run in a more efficient business manner,
All 4 elections this year in Europe that can individually bring down the EU, if they go against the progressive left, will go against them, the UN may exist in some form once American funding cease’s, depends whether the Chinese let go of their project or not, either way doesn’t matter as the UN collapses along with the EU, taking millions upon millions of peoples pension funds with it as the Greenbank goes bust or is financially raped as it all implodes.
