Headline I noticed this morning:
UK weather ALERT: Heavy snow, ice, rain & floods as ‘biblical’ weather continues
‘Biblical’ is the operative word here. And the biblical event referenced is The Flood.
But we live in ‘biblical’ times, it would seem. We are being told, in all seriousness, that if we don’t do something about Carbon, we will face The End Of The World in 11 years time. We are told in all seriousness that we are facing a Climate Crisis, and even a Climate Catastrophe.
It’s not just that there are a few people wearing placards on the street saying that The End Of The World Is Nigh, but that we have entire industries devoted to telling us this. We have the entire mainstream media setting out, quite deliberately, to start a global panic.
And the Extreme Weather warnings that we’re now being fed are all part of a process of mass deception, a vast campaign of lies, all designed to ramp up fear, start panic, and stampede people into doing whatever the media manipulators want us to do.
Weather and climate have become interchangeable terms. And hot has become indistinguishable from cold. Even a blanket of snow becomes a premonition of global warming.
Weather forecasters are now in the front lines of this campaign. And artists and illustrators have been enlisted to depict the coming End Of The World in ways that reproduce the art of Hieronymus Bosch, or the imagery of Dante’s Inferno.
Look at this work of art:
Doesn’t it fill you with fear and foreboding? Are those ice sheets advancing from Russia and Norway and Iceland? How can we possibly survive such frosty Global Warming? We’re doomed. Doomed, I tell ye. Doomed.
And that’s exactly what it’s supposed to do: fill you with fear and foreboding.
There’s no appeal to reason here. It’s a pure invocation of emotion. And to ram the message hone, you don’t just invoke chiiiildren. No, you get an actual child – Greta Thunberg – to bully and browbeat the United Nations, bully and browbeat the whole world.
Hillary Clinton has said male politicians are “scared” of teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg.
The former US secretary of state, 72, was speaking in London last night alongside her daughter Chelsea to launch the book they have co-written.
The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience is about the women who have inspired them, including the 16-year-old Swedish founder of the international youth movement against climate change.
Clinton said: “I thought we’ll put her in the book because we had read about her lonely, solitary climate strike in front of the Swedish parliament and we were so moved by it.
“It’s been fascinating to watch how scared a lot of grown male leaders are of this young 16-year-old girl.”
We should all be scared about the death of reason. For that’s what this is. You don’t try and do any science: you just conjure up a little girl with paranormal powers.
We’re as much living in the Dark Ages today as we’ve ever been. Ours is a demon-haunted world. It’s just that we have new demons these days. New terrors. New nightmares.
