Skip to comments.Green Tyranny: Exposing the Totalitarian Roots of the Climate Industrial Complex
Posted on 12/17/2017 2:38:43 PM PST by iowamark
Rupert Darwall is a strategy consultant and policy analyst. He read economics and history at Cambridge University and subsequently worked in finance as an investment analyst and in corporate finance before becoming a special adviser to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He has written extensively for publications on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Wall Street Journal, National Review, the Daily Telegraph and The Spectator and is the author of the widely praised "The Age of Global Warming: A History" (2013).
Climate change was political long before Al Gore first started talking about it. In Green Tyranny, Rupert Darwall traces the alarming origins of the green agenda, revealing how environmental scares have been deployed by our global rivals as a political instrument to contest American power around the world.
Drawing on extensive historical and policy analysis, Darwall examines the environmental propaganda scares of the last century, Swedens use of environmental alarmism to secretly aid Soviet Russia, and Germanys alternative energy obsession that descended directly from the National Socialist regime.
Green Tyranny provides a clear history of environmental alarmism and failed policies that explains how scientific consensus is manufactured and abused by politicians with duplicitous motives and totalitarian tendencies. Radical environmentalism demands not only the rejection of abundant hydrocarbon energy resources, but also the total suppression of dissent.

Kool. Proponents of CO2 control are now called out as fascists.
36 minute video and audio at the source. Also a transcript at:
"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.
"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. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 - you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation."
--Christiane Figueres, Executive Secretary of UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change)
In the West, it an’t acid rain eating all the forests up,, it’s borer beetles and denying access to major tracts of land for removal of dead and dying forests and their restoration. No roads to access same are being allowed to keep the 5 thumbed political activists and their conniving orgs happy.
Ain’t Green Progressivism swell?
Remember when we were doomed by acid rain, then the ozone hole and rising oceans? Ted Danson and Al Gore’’s apocalyptic deadlines? Do these people think we don’t remember?
I went to your c-span link, and made several attempts, but never saw the transcript...
It’s a religion for many people.
The entire purpose of the “Global Warming” lie - totalitarian oppression.
Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.
You never knew begin with, so how could you have forgotten?
You mention the problem of sulfuric acid in the atmosphere but there was also the threat of global cooling cause by the sulfate aerosols reflecting sunlight.
Apparently you don't know that those problems were caused by sulfur in coal and gasoline. The US Congress amended the Clean Air Act to begin regulating sulfur. So if you emit more than 250 tons of sulfur you are in deep shit.
Likewise with the ozone hole. Did you ever hear of the Montreal Protocol?
The history of it is that the polluters always scream bloody murder about how they will all go bankrupt and the nation will collapse if they are forced to stop polluting.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Apparently that baby needs to be STOKED!
Thank you sir.
May I have another?
