Almost all the people who believe in Global Warming are young or very rich and stand to benefit. Old farts like me have lived through enough of these scams to see them for what they were.
In the 1970's the popular scam was "Global Cooling", all the aerosols we're putting into the air are cooling the planet, we have to stop burning oil, and so we have to tax it. And that didn't really fly so they managed to piss off the Arabs where most of the worlds oil was coming from at the time and create the great Arab Oil Embargo, oil went from 25 cents/gallon to $2/gallon overnight.
But that eventually resolved, so then in the 80's they said we were running out of oil. Now it was possible we were running out of easy to get at oil, but certainly not running out of hydrocarbons. All one had to do is look at Venus atmosphere, 100x as thick as Earth's and almost entirely CO2, know that Venus compositionally is similar to Earth except it's lost much of it's hydrogen to stronger solar wind and thus water and the ability to make hydrocarbons. And you knew it was bogus, then Russians drilled some really deep wells and found abiotic oil, that is oil that formed in the Earth's mantle without the aid of biology and then we invented fracking and that fell apart. And over time the price of fuel fell. Just what is a rich Jew Rockefeller to do? Well, invent yet another scam to create artificial scarcity and they called this one global warming.
Never mind the fact that it hasn't warmed substantially in the last 15 years, and prior to that was a heavy solar period. And the fact that last winter was the coldest on record in Antarctica, and this winter here in Seattle thus far we've had the coldest winter in 100 years. And they told us acidification of the ocean was destroying coral reefs, but wait, they just measured the great barrier coral reef and found it had the densest coral cover in history.
Oh and we're creating deserts, no actually the amount of rain forest in the Amazon has increased, and the Mohavi desert is shrinking.
Well, never mind the facts, we own the mainstream media we're going to have a great reset where we own everything and you own nothing and will be happy, if we have to create a virus to accomplish that, well by God that is just what we'll do. And here we are today.
