Politics and Climate Change

Quotes of the Times:
“10 creepy reasons why climate change is starting to look like a religion.” Headline, Listverse, Sept. 26, 2019. https://listverse.com/2019/09/26/climate-change-religion/
“Believe in climate change as though it’s a religion, it’s not a science.” Mazie Hirono, Democratic Senator for Hawaii, Prayer Breakfast, Nov. 12, 2019.
“For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma (the nature of reality – essential truth).” Rajendra Pachauri, former head of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Feb, 2015.
One day the Global Warming/Climate Change juggernaut rolled into Rome, and the Pope decided to jump on board. He took a lead role on the juggernaut when he published ‘Laudato Sii’ (subtitled, ‘On the care of the common home’), May, 2015. He followed up by trotting off to New York in September of the same year, to open the Sustainable Development Conference at the United Nations headquarters – indicating his solidarity with the Left agenda and the United Nations. He opened his speech with these words, “It must be stated that a true right of the environment does exist.”
When we are presented with an argument or an ideology or a philosophy or a theology, we need to pay careful attention to the first premise. The first premise is the first point of the argument – it is the foundation of the argument – all that comes after is dependent on this first premise being true.
So, when the Pope presented his first premise, at the UN – “It must be stated that a true right of the environment does exist” – we need to ask the question: is it true? Does the environment have rights? Does the environment have rights, in law, the same way that human beings have rights?
By claiming legal rights for the environment, the Pope is giving the environment ‘personhood.’ He is elevating the environment to the same legal status as human beings. This is contrary to all historical precedent. Going all the way back to the creation account in the Bible, we find that God gave dominion over the earth to man and instructed man to subdue the earth (see Gen. 1;27, 28). Regardless, of whether one believes in the biblical creation account, the relationship between man and earth as outlined there has been the standard understanding for all time. And that relationship gives man priority and dominion over the earth. The Pope has just changed that, he says that the earth now has equal rights with man.
This is going to please the millions of people around the world who adhere to the principles of the New Age Movement. The New Age Movement, is simply a revival of ancient paganism, where physical phenomena, such as mountains and rivers and trees were regarded as being sentient, alive and capable of interfering in human affairs. The New Age Movement has long advocated for ‘Mother Earth’ (also known as ‘Gaia’) – as a living entity. And not just recognizing the earth as a living being, but recognizing that we ought to worship it.
The Pope has his own reasons for riding the climate change juggernaut – he sees the climate hysteria as a means to accomplish his own agenda – part of which is world-wide legislation for Sunday sacredness. The Pope has already gained the support of the Labor Unions for Sunday laws, whereby, Sunday is touted as the family fun day – the ideal panacea for a stressed-out world. Many people are already seeing the same solution for a stressed-out environment. There are calls to give Mother Earth, a rest every week, on a Sunday as well. For example, this headline:
“Slow Sunday: the perfect solution to global warming.”
With an accompanying subtitle which explains the reasoning behind the title:
“Using Sunday as a day of rest and renewal would be good for our personal health, as well as the health of the planet.” The Guardian, 17 Sept. 2009.
Even Fox news, is of the same opinion as evidenced by this headline:
“Let’s make Sunday a day of rest, for God’s sake.”
Fox News, April 22, 2012.
This is where the climate hoax is ultimately headed. People like the Pope, see the climate issue as an opportunity to pull together many and diverse elements into a type of modern semi-religious crusade to save the earth, and at the same time realize long cherished goals of their own.
In order to overcome persistent opposition, the juggernaut riders are ‘all in.’ The term ‘all in’ is derived from a gambling tactic, whereby, one player will push all his last remaining chips into the pot, in an attempt to intimidate his opponents. Those on the end of the ‘all in’ tactic have to try and figure out if the intimidator is holding a genuinely powerful hand of cards, or whether he is bluffing.
The climate hystericists are bluffing – they are holding a losing hand of cards. But because they are ‘all in,’ all they can do is shout louder and louder – with ever more dire predictions of impending doom. In spite of the fact that none of their previous dire predictions have come true. This is why the whole movement is being transformed into the semblance of a cult – where belief in the cult agenda, is more important than reason or facts. The High Priest of this new cult is the Pope – and this is one of the reasons why they are ‘all in’ – can you imagine what it would do, to the credibility of this infallible priest, if it turns out, the planet is actually cooling and not warming?
Note: The purpose of the UN Sustainable Development Conference in 2015, was to reboot Agenda 21. The name was changed to Agenda 2030, and all the member nations adopted it. Your national and local politicians will already be lecturing you on what is sustainable and what is not.
Note: Please check out ‘The Milankovitch Cycles’ which are the true, main cause, of climate change on earth. There are many excellent explanations on You Tube.
