The reason I say humans are not controlling the weather is because there’s no evidence of humans controlling the weather in spite of a worldwide effort to establish that narrative, this coupled with the fact that the earth is following the very same climate trends as it always has would lead any critical thinker to conclude “much ado over nothing”.
Which would beg the question, why then?
The answer to that can be reasonably surmised by looking at all the “solutions” to this non problem that gain traction and the ones that fall on deaf ears.
The absolute cleanest and safest way to produce large amounts of energy is nuclear, this has been universally opposed and obstructed by “Environmentalists” for decades.
“Green Energy” like solar and wind are completely useless technologies that cannot meet the energy demands of any growing economy or prosperous people, but “Environmentalists” have been touting these for over 40 years knowing the entire time that the second public subsidies are removed they would cease to exist.
Unless you are willing to accept the premise that these people are dumber than dirt the only plausible explanation for their preferred “solutions” is the mutually beneficial relationship that politicians and the “Environmentalists” glean from pushing this ridiculous narrative.
The “Green” industry profits from the subsidies and the research entities profit from the grants; the politicians gain a “constituency” (the earth) that cannot voice an opinion but which can be used as an excuse to hinder individual liberty and control private enterprise while increasing dependency on the government.
I used one glaring example in energy creation but I could have used numerous examples from idiocy like battery operated cars and “forest plans” that burn down the whole damn forest every 7 or 8 years but the common thread in them all is the very same mutually beneficial elements between the same groups.
I tire of those who try to lend credibility to these religious fairy tales by “agreeing” with me about the obvious hypocrisy in the commonly supported “solutions”, they usually say things like “you know I agree that nuclear is a better solution and many are now coming around to that understanding”.
That is nothing more than an attempt to perpetuate the myth that these “Environmentalists” have good motives in spite of getting on board some destructive band wagons.
They do not have good motives, the “Earth” matters nothing to them beyond a means to line their pockets and secure their own power.
ALL of their ideas make perfect sense if the goal is remove Liberty from individuals and steer prosperity to only those who the Left approve of.
It is not a conspiracy, it is just the same traits that have plagued humanity for our entire existence; to obtain security and authority which can be held without fear or challenge.
Just as the small entrepreneur loves liberty when he is building his business, then seeks government protectionism once he has “made it” so he won’t have to compete to stay on top; the same applies to politicians, “Green companies” and schools that “research” on the public dime.
They are not wrong, they are right about a completely different question; “how do we hide our selfish motivation and claim a noble cause in its place”.
