The Big Lie

liar-7074360_1280 The Big Lie

"…in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying." (Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X, Adolf Hitler)

Today, we live under another big lie which is that our carbon dioxide emissions cause climate change. We are told that 'the science is settled' on the matter. But:

1. Natural carbon dioxide is a mere 400 parts per million parts of the planet's atmosphere, or 0.04 per cent. During the Cambrian period 500 million years ago, it was about 4,000 parts per million.

2. According to the United States Energy Information Administration, in 2019 anthropogenic carbon dioxide was a miniscule 0.00065 per cent of global atmosphere at about 36 billion metric tons in an atmosphere of 5.5 quadrillion metric tons. Thus, there exists no scientific reason whatsoever to reduce anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide to 'save the planet.' Our CO2 emissions cannot cause global warming or climate change. There is, thus, no need to 'decarbonise' or get to 'net zero.' We have been told a Big Lie.

3. Carbon dioxide is not 'dirty' or a pollutant. It is essential for life, exhaled by humans and plants during respiration and used in photosynthesis by plants to grow. It is pumped into greenhouses to improve the growth of tomatoes and peppers, for example. Real pollutants are nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, ozone, particulates (from burning diesel) and carbon monoxide.

4. Carbon dioxide is one of the products of burning coal, gas and oil in oxygen. The others are energy and water. The energy humans need to live comes from metabolising carbohydrates. The energy industries need to manufacture steel, for example, comes from fossil fuels.

5. In the 1970s, in Europe, Canada and America, a well-funded campaign was launched (mainly by wealthy white men) with the intentions of de-industrialising and re-wilding the West and preventing economic and population growth in developing countries, as the following show. The Club of Rome publication Limits to Growth (1972), establishment of the UN Environment Programme (1972), 'sustainable' development (1987), World Meteorological Organisation/UNEP's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (1988), UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (1992), Agenda 21 (1992), passage of the Kyoto Protocol (1997), UK Climate Change Act, Renewables Obligations and Climate Change Committee under New Labour (2008) and Scottish Climate Change Act (2009), Agenda 30 at the UN Sustainable Development Summit (2015), Paris Agreement (2016), Net Zero under the Conservatives (summer 2019), Conference of Parties (26th in 2021), books, films, documentaries, articles and teaching materials by Al Gore, Bill Gates and World Economic Forum globalists, the BBC, university academics, school teachers, religious leaders, media, the voluntary sector like Friends of the Earth and, more recently, investors and traders in the commodities needed in renewables and batteries - all promote (directly or indirectly) the campaign based on the Big Lie - to de-industrialise, re-wild and reduce populations.

6. In 1996, the IPCC's Dr Ben Santer deliberately designed his 'human fingerprint' computer model to show that anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide cause atmospheric warming. Thus, via his computer model, Dr Santer created false evidence for the Big Lie. This is described in detail by Bernie Lewin in 'Searching for the Catastrophe Signal.' Afterwards, other lies via other computer models have been designed to attribute humanity's CO2 as the cause of natural changes and weather events.

7. When warming didn't happen, environmentalists adopted the term 'climate change' insinuating it is human-caused, not natural. Fear has been instilled in many by the terms 'climate emergency', 'climate crisis' and 'climate catastrophe' aided by media eager to sell stories. Lies leading to legislation, to control and to fear.

8. Carbon dioxide was deliberately selected for vilification because it as an inevitable product of the industrial, agricultural, transportation and domestic processes which meet human need and create prosperity. This is the basis of the 21st century's Big Lie, perpetuated by the suppression of sceptical voices, by relentless propaganda, by legislation, directives, Carbon Budgets, lazy politicians and vast ignorance. Internationally, the International Monetary Fund, International Energy Agency and World Bank maintain the 'sustainability' mantra, tying themselves in knots to be seen as helpful to developing countries while simultaneously promoting the Big Lie. These institutions are particularly heinous since they claim that climate change causes poverty when the truth is that the reigning globalist ideology is the main cause. ,

9. Re-wilding reduces land available for food production and housing. Wetlands for birds are prioritised over flood control for villages. Reducing populations is achieved by policies which cause poverty, powerlessness, fear, lockdowns, suicide and death by forbidding treatment for illness – which happened during the covid-19 pandemic.

This campaign by unelected and very wealthy United Nations institutions staff, bankers as well as our Climate Change Committee and politicians, is based on lies and deceit since honesty and transparency would reveal the malevolence and hypocrisy of its underlying purposes. Many foolish Leftists support the campaign too believing it helps in their fight against the capitalists as well as saving the planet. They do not see the irony of how the 'fossil-fuels-cause-climate-change' campaign deliberately impoverishes the working classes by causing unemployment, destroying communities and increasing utility bills while simultaneously further enriching the capitalists who perpetuate the Big Lie by investing in The Energy Transition.

The truth is that the campaign's ideological origins are in the minds of the Extreme Right who, like Hitler did, want total control over people's minds and bodies and over land and resources. This is a fascist mind-set where women are subservient to men, primitive economies need to be preserved by deliberately preventing industrialisation, where 'sustainability' is enforced to prevent resource use unless by wealthy metropolitan elites, and a prosperous, peaceful and free populace with a vibrant culture is anathema. Today, the control lever of choice by modern fascists is cheap energy which is why, as they are in power, fossil fuels are kept in the ground and vilified.
