Tomorrow’s Grim, Global, Green Dictatorship

April 14, 2018

Guest commentary by Viv Forbes, Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition:

 

 

Tomorrow’s Grim, Global, Green Dictatorship

Greens hate individual freedom and private property. They dream of a centralised unelected global government, financed by taxes on developed nations and controlled by all the tentacles of the UN.

No longer is real pollution of our environment the main Green concern. The key slogan of the Green religion is “sustainable development”, with them defining what is sustainable.

Greens hate miners. They use nationalised parks, heritage areas, flora/fauna reserves, green bans, locked gates and land rights (for some) to close as much land as possible to explorers and miners – apparently resources should be locked away for some lucky distant future generation. And if some persistent explorer manages to prove a mineral deposit, greens will then strangle it in the approvals process using “death by delay”.

Greens hate farmers with their ploughs, fertilisers, crops and grazing animals. They want Aussie grazing land turned back to kangaroos and woody weeds. They plan to expel farmers and graziers from most land areas, with food produced in concentrated feedlots, factory farms, communal gardens and hydroponics.

Greens hate professional fishermen with their nets, lines and harpoons. Using the Great Barrier Reef as their poster-child, they plan to control the Coral Sea using marine parks, fishing quotas, bans and licences, leaving us to get seafood from foreign seas and factory fish farms.

Greens hate foresters and grass-farmers. They want every tree protected, even woody weeds taking over ancient treeless grasslands. Red meat and forest timber are “unsustainable”. Apparently they want us to live in houses made of recycled cardboard and plastic and eating fake steak and protein powder made from methane generated from decomposing rubbish dumps.

Greens despise the suburbs with their SUV’s, lawns, pools, rose gardens, manicured parks, ponies and golf courses. They prefer concentrated accommodation with people stacked-and-packed in high-rise cubic apartments, with state-controlled kindies in the basement, and with ring-roads of electric trams and driverless cars connecting apartments, schools, offices and shops.

Greens hate reliable grid power from coal, nuclear, oil, gas or hydro generators. Their “sustainable” option is part-time power from wind and solar with the inevitable blackouts and shortages needing more rules and rationing.

Greens lead the war on fracking and pipelines. The victims are energy consumers. The beneficiaries are Russian gas and Middle-east oil.

Greens think it is “sustainable” to uglify scenic hills with whining wind towers, power poles, transmission lines and access roads, and to clutter pleasant estuaries and shallow seas with more bird-slicing turbines. They think it is “sustainable” to keep smothering sunny flatlands under solar panels and filling the suburbs with extra power lines and batteries of toxic metals.

Greens think it is “sustainable” to clear forests for bio-mass to feed large wood-fired power stations, or for establishing biofuel plantations. They think it is “sustainable” to keep converting croplands from producing food for humans to producing ethanol for cars.

Greens hate free markets where prices are used to signal changing supply and demand. There is no room for fun, frills or luxuries in their “sustainable” world. They want to limit demand by imposing rationing on us wastrels – carbon ration cards, electricity rationing meters, water rationing, meat free days, diet cops and bans on fast foods and fizzy-drinks.

They also favour compulsory recycling of everything, no matter what that process costs in energy or resources. Surveillance cameras will keep watch on our “wasteful” habits.

None of this vast green religious agenda is compatible with individual freedom, constitutional rights or private property – and none of it makes any economic or climate sense.

The Despotic Green New World is coming. Climate alarm is the stalking horse,
“sustainable development” is the war cry, and global government is the goal.

Originally published in “Carbon Sense”, the independent newsletter produced for the Carbon Sense Coalition, an Australian based organisation which opposes waste of resources, opposes pollution, opposes the baseless war on carbon fuels and  promotes the rational un-subsidised use of all energy resources including coal, oil, gas, hydro, nuclear, wind, solar and geo-thermal.

        Ditto, Phillip.

        My experience of the real swivel-eyed ecomaniacs is that, unrestrained, this is precisely where they would aim to lead us.

        Why? No-one really knows because under pressure they become totally inarticulate and can barely manage a word beyond “because” or “we can’t keep on raping the earth”. Challenged on the contradictions — my favourite has always been the couple who refuse on principle to use the local Tesco but take two buses to the nearest Waitrose! — they simply cannot explain and almost invariably resort to insult.

        But they are nothing if not persistent. We ignore them at our peril!

      Just one example of many:

      Deep Green Resistance

      There are many Green groups which espouse all manner of misanthropic, cranky, totalitarian rubbish with a zealotry that is frankly dangerous. Politicians of all stripes are attracted to even small crowds and the dopes think that they can use the superficial universality of the “Green message” to anoint themselves with virtue without actually looking at what they’re smearing on themselves.

      I could run a diatribe of insults but I’ll just stick with key Green activist attributes – ignorance, dishonesty and an appetite for power over others.

      It may be coming for a tiny fraction of the world, but – as I’ve said elsewhere – the developing countries (plus Japan, Russia, probably the US and some EU countries such as Poland and Hungary) are not interested. Global government may be the goal, but it’s not going to happen – at least not for a very long time.

      Satire maybe, but not “over the top”. Such pieces get to the heart of how such people really do think. Though they hate to hear it put like that, because most of them do actually understand how embarrassing it would be to have their thoughts revealed so explicitly.
      You could pick up examples of all of these ideas from a couple of issues of The Guardian or a few BBC shows.

    Agenda 21 to the core. People don’t realize Agenda 21 is already being implemented across the world. Local governments are incentivizing developers to go vertical. Industry is being taxed out of existence and made unprofitable with exorbitant energy costs. Farmers are being squeezed out of profitability with regulations. It’s a stealth take over of people’s rights, democracy, and Capitalism. The Green Weenies are perfect useful idiots for the Globalization/Agenda 21 cabal.

        Poor communication on my part. What I meant is it’s popping up in different locations all over the world. New Zealand seems to be the guinea pig nation though. Part of the stealth plan to implement Agenda 21 is for local/small governments and communities to implement facets of the plan and eventually join into one big ‘borg’ governed by the UN. Pressure is being put at the top government levels and lowest community levels. Top down and bottom up implementation. It’s a tried and true Marxist method for infiltration. Think Czechoslovakia. You need to read Agenda 21 to understand just how sinister it is.

Retirement in the UK is no longer something to look forward to, but a very uncertain future.

        I happen to live in it too Dave – and it’s certainly no irrelevance to us. My point however is that by far the greater part of the world is unconcerned by such matters (although many have quite different problems of their own), happily leaving us poor saps in our little corner of the world to cope as best we can.

        Didn’t say they were. Just pointing out that 2021 has been superseded by 2030 and doubtless 2030’s successor is being built as I type.

    The green dictatorship is manifest in in town planning. There is a determination to deny humanity the use of rural land.

    In Western Australia there is a statewide ban on rural residential zoning. No more rural residential lots can be created. In the past, land that was deemed unsuitable for agriculture could be zoned rural residential with a lot size of about 2 hectares. The aim now is to increase density by reducing lot sizes to the minimum that is capable of supporting a three or four bedroom house. 400 square metres is adjudged to be about right and communities of 60.000 seen to be economical in terms of the provision of infrastructure.

    What is the result?

    The cost of a house is about ten times the average annual income in Sydney down to about 6.5 times annual income in Perth and Brisbane. All Australian capital cities are within the most expensive 20 cities globally.

    Tokyo city (13.7M people) had 142,417 housing starts in 2014, which was “more than the 83,657 housing permits issued in the state of California (population 38.7m), or the 137,010 houses started in the entire country of England (population 54.3m).” Compare this, also, with the roughly 20,000 new residential units in New York City, the 23,500 in Los Angeles County, and the measly 5000 in 2015 throughout the entire Bay Area.

    In Minato ward — a desirable 20 sq km slice of central Tokyo — the population is up 66 per cent over the past 20 years, from 145,000 to 241,000, an increase of about 100,000 residents. In the 121 sq km of San Francisco, the population grew by about the same number over 20 years, from 746,000 to 865,000 — a rise of 16 per cent. Yet whereas the price of a home in San Francisco and London has increased 231 per cent and 441 per cent respectively, Minato ward has absorbed its population boom with price rises of just 45 per cent.

    The difference is that the Japanese national government decrees that development cannot be constrained by planning regulations. Neighbours cannot complain about your plans for development and the minimum lot frontage is 2 metres and average lot size just 60-80 square metres. People build small and go to two to three stories.

    Gone are the leafy suburbs of yesteryear. The bulk of the population must live in a hothouse environment where there is no garden, no watering and the constant hum of air conditioners.Black solar panels on the roof, black bitumen at ground level. Reflective roofs and walls are frowned upon. Dark Green is the preferred colour.

    Forget about the dream of building your own house. as an owner builder you get just one opportunity in six years……..if you can run the gauntlet of the red tape designed to stop you.

    Battery hens……little pens for workers. Is there any wonder that people head for the bush or remote coastal communities where they will live in a caravan as soon as they retire.

    Viv Forbes is not far wrong ‘sustainability’ covers up the most egregious political lies but don’t take my word for it, listen to the horses gob just read this:

    Figueres admitted that the Global Warming conspiracy set by the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, of which she is the executive secretary, has a goal not of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism. She said very casually:

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

    She even restated that goal ensuring it was not a mistake:

    “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

    Clear enough – eh?

    Zero hedge link

    They (the alarmunists) know, just like the realists know that, the man made warming chimera is just that – a myth but it’s a very, very convenient. flexible, vehicle.

    Advocating “saving the polar bears and ‘da planet'” sometime soon, next Tuesday or by 3000 whatevah – is FA to do with it. Though promising the earth while using the excuse to taxing the bejabbers out the little man is a politician’s wet dream. Nope, the greater thrust as highlighted vide supra is through bashing the west and then what follows.

    Its all about making people to do as they’re told, everything to do with it, and aiming to that goal, the UNEP/ NWO works towards their end game and the transport is all done through supranational institutions, trade stitch-ups (ref TTIP) where the big boys giant conglomerates are with able collusion from political elites are able to effect legislation and make the laws and the little man just like a snowball in hell, has absolutely no chance – of redress. Small wonder they disdain the very idea of Britain out of the hive and Brexit – that wasn’t in the plan – at all.
    In time (think EU) booted into the firmament any trace of accountability. Regulation diktat and total opacity lack of transparency, fashioning an internationalized judicial process where a court which recognizes individual rights – would be anathema.

      Or looked at from a different angle there is no escaping the hive and all this (cannot possibly be rigged because it took place in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland) referendum did (which media/marketing idiot actually came up with the word Brexit?) was to give a veneer of ‘you are in control as you have the vote’ to the masses.

    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio. Sometimes when you read the propositions postulated by Green campaigners it takes you back to Shakespeare deriding necromancers with his references in Julius Caesar to ‘signs’ and ‘portents’. The Chinese were sure that by eradicating sparrows they would have bigger crops. They had a national campaign to kill sparrows and the bugs ate the crops instead. Futurology is not a science it is astrology and those that practice it are no better qualified than you or I. My energy supplier is one of the good guys (I believe) and yet through matters beyond their control my bills keep on increasing. We have to look no further than the game of subsidising fake energy sources that probably used more energy in their making than they will ever produce in economic terms.There is a rather macabre line between our pusillanimity and Syria, in that through promoting and ambivalence about fracking we throw money into the Russia’s military machine and think nothing of it. We could save Russia by not being so compliant.

    There is a cycle to invention and there is a cost. In all this talk of ‘capping’ there is the hidden agenda of populism and votes. When it is a policy of a Conservative government it looks less like probity and more like just something else that the Left cannot use against them. For a capitalist leaning ideology to be so turned is truly amazing, a total contradiction of what you may have thought you were voting for all these years. Policies take a hold and organisations are built within government. Soon they are like rogue states depending on their survival through every dirty trick in the book; personal prestige at stake along with long strand inviolability constructed to make themselves secure from rival departments, tank traps to protect their raison d’etre.

    The cycle of invention is seriously affected by protectionism and pledging to a cause. Our universities have been devastated by the manner in which grants have been handed-out, made them vulnerable to all manner of quack politics that is anti-progressive. Without that element of the private individual and their science conducted with their own funds, that of the Enlightenment, science runs on rails and progress is confined within the mindsets of political intrigue rather than set free to people with real imaginations.

    If you want to have progress you need odd balls and not heads of university departments having to present arguments that are political in nature to elicit funding. Instead of having that optimism and expectation of a lively and diverse scientific community things fall into sterility and the optimism lost is instead replaced by stale old make-weights that are but a stumbling block to real invention and that most precious of commodities energetic unconventional insight. If all the money spent on landowners subsidies had been invested in fusion or other wild ideas it would have been better dispensed with rather than making windmills or contemplating tidal electricity generation. We have tried to coerce the growing maturity of technology and ended up with something of the middle ages, regressive and antithetical.

    This article makes the same error as the Greens in that it assumes that everything on the agenda of the other side HAS to be wrong. That’s the problem with political extremes of left and right; neither side will admit that the other may have a point. Reality is that the truth of all of these matters lies between the extremes. I’m going to build my own wind generator because the cost of home heating is is rising. That does not mean that I’m opposed to power plants. I eat mostly plant material and that does not mean I’m opposed to meat. People need to realize that a consensus on all matters is impossible so it’s vital to listen to the other side and appreciate their arguments.

    Greens have it right in their concerns over the oceans and fishing. They have it wrong about power generation. We need to look at individual issues rather than focus on who’s raising them.

      I have to generally agree with you. The article gives the impression that anyone concerned about the environment is wrong. That we have to be practical about issues seems to be forgotten by both extremes. And from some of the replies it would appear that the environment is not important. It is. I am surprised that such an article was given space on here, considering that most of the articles are concerned with facts rather than politics.

        All of life is concerned, intertwined with politics mate.

        Greens don’t deal in facts or hadn’t you noticed?

        Furthermore, we the human race are all concerned about the environment, you’d be an idiot if you were not, though some things you can effect and others are best left to mother nature, the dynamic climate system we live in, atmosphere, the solar influence, the oceans are not controlled by man – that sort of thinking belongs in the bin. The preposterous notion that Carbon dioxide emissions added to the atmosphere by mankind is by some strange new process affecting the world’s climate is a nonsense in any case the causation is actually reversed where, Carbon dioxide rises but lagging as a result of rising Ts, Michael Mann, NOAA, Hansen, CRU, IPCC et bloody cetera and al gore, with the western illiberal media groupthink: put the cart before the horse.

        Green politics, is about changing yours, mine. ‘our’ lifestyles and never is given any thought to asking people what they actually want. Thus, via diktat and taxation and not for the benefit of the environment – all of that is just a political vehicle.
        The greens, nigh exclusively are, to a man and woman of ’em extremist and Socialist by politics. You need to go back, to read the articles and blog threads (on this site) to make a considered judgement and you will arrive at the inevitable conclusion that, no matter how the logic and rational is served, arrived at and explained (all done most carefully by the Host of this blog), the figures and all, the political claque is dancing to a different tune and this is where us – realistic, pragmatic folks versus, the greens and in this case Parliament/the UK establishment are to say the least at great variance.

        ref the above link to Christina Figueres, and where ‘concern’ for the environment is FA very little to do with it, the game the greens play is about control and telling you and me what to do. By using cuddly cougars, snow leopards and looking lost polar bears. spinning lines about air pollution when just a few years ago diesel was the new ‘cool’, while attempting to make the world go electric, planting birdmincers and telling us it is the answer, energy of the future – er no it’s the methods of the middle ages actually.

        Thus, and we say no to all of their crass weft of climate fictions, all of that. Clean – why yes! we all want that but it will come in the future and through necessity and will have come through proper innovation to benefit all of the people, domestic consumers businesses, industry alike, The greens insistence on throwing down the drain £$€ trillions on useless palliative are actually halting our progress – think on that for a minute and properly digest it.

        Me? I love the idea of Fusion, fission maybe and LFTR Thorium salt reactors should be pursued, until then, plentiful energy is still the key to national wealth and OUR prosperity fossil fuels are our near term future, well they should be, it it wasn’t for the green blob and the politicians blind eyed stupidity.

      It is surprising how many things so-called environmentalists do that actually have a detrimental effect of wildlife and the environment. They support windmills that kill birds and bats. Bats are protected as they have a slow reproductive rate and raptors are protected for the same reason. A book I often refer to here is Jim Steele’s Landscapes and Cycles. In the book is an episode concerning the spread of a disease that kills frogs. The spread was due to people having exotic frogs as pets and then releasing them when bored which allowed a rapid spread of a disease. Real environmentalists realised the cause and wanted to take some specimens of species to safety before the disease got to them. The greenies were against this as they had decided that global warming was the cause. And so a certain frog went extinct thanks to their stance.

    is still worth reading.

    The present Green movement is just a part of the Marxist Hydra.

    It is a perpetual embarrassment to Marxists that Capitalism has not yet succumbed to its “internal contradictions.” “Unsustainability!” is just the latest invented, fatal flaw.

    Given that Roman and Medieval Warm Periods were global. And that in particular the Medieval Warm Period was about 1°C warmer than now (see for a list of some of the many scientific papers http://www.climatedepot.com/2013/03/08/more-than-700-scientists-from-400-institutions-in-40-countries-have-contributed-peerreviewed-papers-providing-evidence-that-the-medieval-warm-period-was-real-global-warmer-than-the-present/ ).

    This leave the Greenies, cAGW activists and advocates, UN-IPCC stooges, etc., with the problem of explaining how all the animals that are here currently, including polar bears, managed to survive the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods.

    Or were the animals so weirdly different back then?

      Beauty is only fur deep. Under the skin Polar bears are grizzly wannabes or, is it the other way around? Most of the higher orders of carnivore and herbivore are essentially nomadic and adaptable canines and feline species live (or used to do) inhabit most regions of the earth from hot dry desert to cold high mountains to very wet equatorial forest to the high boreal and beyond that, at heart they’re all survivors of ‘climate? we don’t care we can do this’, a bit like us.

        The mystery of polar bears is how did they survive the glaciations. Real scientists know that too much and thick ice is not good for polar bears since they are bad conditions for seals to breed. Since they are still with us, they survived the extension of the ice sheets.

    The joy of notalotofpeopleknowthat is the preponderance of pithy, to the point, informrd comment. Could today’s posters be a bit more restrained in future,. It would be a tragedy if this site became just another political rant forum. Thank you.

    A February 10, 2015 article in Business Investors Daily gave us a look at Christiana Figueres who, from her position at the United Nations, basically wrote the Paris Climate Accord. She is a Costa Rican of the National Liberation Party. In an interview one week prior to the article, she is quoted.

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

    Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

    The response by the United States, was to elect Donald John Trump as President. He saw this for the Marxist crap it was and pulled us out almost a year ago on a lovely June day in the White House Rose Garden.
