Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom (Guest: Patrick Moore)

November 10, 2021

In the quest for money and power over people's lives, radical environmentalists are collaborating with woke industry elites and politicians to push false climate and environmental disaster scare stories. The goal: make everyone else live with less.

The environmental catastrophes and doom-and-gloom end of the world stories being pushed by elitist politicians, mainstream media outlets, politically connected industry insiders, and radical environmentalists are fake. They point to non-existent, invisible (so they can't be disproven) threats and say the unaware or duped public and future generations can only be saved if we give them more power over our lives. The oceans, polar bears, coral reefs and forests aren't dying, and genetically modified organisms and nuclear power are boons for, not threats to, humanity. The elites can't point to evidence to back their claims, so they reference model projections to instill fear in the public. The goal, as it has been throughout history, is for those pushing the scare stories, to accrue more wealth, influence, and power.
