We call them climate crusaders, climateers, a cult, and other, less polite words. Essentially, however, the transition leadership is a club and I only say this because I’m in a good mood this week, seeing as the local case of global boiling has ended for the year.
Great article. Have you read a book written by Thomas Sowell back in the mid 90's called "The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy" echoes with what you have written here.
“... however, the transition leadership is a club...” The Climatrons? “...the world needed to replace and build 50 million miles of transmission lines to make the transition work.” And how much copper ore?
I highly recommend Robert Bryce's substack for more details on the actual numbers for high transmission line needs. The copper is one problem, which you wrote about recently. Condemning the land is another. Still another problem is finding the linemen ... it takes over 7 years to train a high tension lineman, and there aren't enough of them now, because so many people prefer "working at home" or trading stocks on the internet, or pictures on OnlyFans.....the average lineman receives a salary over $90K but no women and few men take these jobs.
I have a tendency to stoop too low when I become agitated on this topic (and a few others). I end up using simplistic words such as moron, knucklehead, idiot and bozo. I may just steal your highly preferable “this is a mystery to absolutely no one with rudimentary mental acuity” sentence. You nailed it with that one. This is a fantastic piece.
It’s agreed that 99% of government study writers don’t want to be defunded.
These climate catastrophists and greenies are in the self promotion and mutual admiration club.
I absolutely loved Rule 3. Quoting Mein Kampf is spot on. I noticed the EU has deployed the disinformation regime against Meta and Tik Tok for not policing the correct story about the current Mideast war. The State will grind on mercilessly. Another excellent piece.
Great post, Irina! It's truly bizarre how "The Science™" has been completely swallowed up by those who are actually against intellectual inquiry.
Climate Science, heck all the environmental sciences, have been corrupt since Dr. James Hansen's stagecraft-show to Congress in 1988, and Medical Science suffered the same fate in 2020.
I'm constantly reminded how Galileo was ostracized when his correct theory of a Heliocentric Galaxy ran afoul of the Geocentric crowd's orthodoxy.
He would likely recognize our times as close to his own, were he to suddenly appear....
As a retired Petroleum Engineer & high school Math teacher, I am reminded of a comment I made numerous times in my working life. This was especially true when talking to peddlers that bring in new gizmos that are going to revolutionize the oil & gas industry. Generally, after a cursory review I would say, "This isn't scalable which means the Math doesn't work." Great article as usual, Irina!
Brilliant. Govt message machines and minions deployed around the world. A little disinformation here. Misinformation there. Eyes wide open to the charade of the century. Sad state of affairs. We fight on. Keep up the good work.
Absolutely brilliant and spot-on.
What you describe sounds so much like Collectivism, Utopianism.
For example, no questions are allowed in collectives. Collectives cannot abide questions or challenges.
Spot on, as always Irina. I guess the big question is how the Climateers will respond when the physics intrudes on all their beautiful plans. perhaps they will blame the religious right as it would then be God's fault that all of their genius failed, and they wouldn't feel it necessary to recognize their own culpability in the mess.
Wait, $600 Billion a year just in transmission? And that is a doubling? So that means we are spending $300 Billion a year already?
If that is being used to string lines to new customers then great. I guess we all know however that most of this is being used to string lines to “generators” in the middle of nowhere...
These Grifters still pushing the Hydrogen scam. The most difficult fuel to store. Most leaky fuel. Most difficult to transport. Expensive especially if Green Hydrogen. Very dangerous, prone to leaks which can be ignited in a wide range of concentration in air from 4% to 74%. Even a lightning strike a mile away can ignite it. The absurdity of Hydrogen fuel is explained here:

Another brilliant article Irina.
Sadly you’re preaching to the choir and those who really need saving aren’t listening... what will it take, I wonder?
