“This whole climate hysteria seems to focus on a molecule – carbon dioxide (CO2) – which we humans exhale and which we release into the atmosphere by burning so-called fossil fuels,” explains my guest on this episode Jerome Corsi, PhD.
But what are realities of CO2, who is behind the agenda to demonize it and – most importantly – who benefits?
Dr. Corsi, author of the tour de force book The Truth about Energy, Global Warming, and Climate Change: Exposing Climate Lies in an Age of Disinformation, has the answers.
Drawing extensively on scholarly published peer-reviewed literature in the fields of climate science, geology, astronomy, energy physics, and statistical methodologies, Dr. Corsi reframes the CO2 global warming argument from the realm of politics to the sphere of science where the discussion properly belongs.
He also exposes the political, scientific, and economic reasons for concluding that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an advocacy creation of the United Nations that masquerades as a scientific research community to push climate hysteria for globalist political purposes.
Created by the United Nations in 1988, the IPCC has led the “consensus science” effort to advance the argument that man-made CO2 emissions resulting from burning hydrocarbon fuels are “causing a climate change disaster of unprecedented proportions.”
Yet aiming for “net zero carbon emissions” by eliminating hydrocarbons and mandating wind and solar power, will essentially shut down a modern economy that has lifted billions of people out of poverty.
The IPCC itself concedes this.
Its 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming warns that “limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities. Global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) would need to fall by about 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching ‘net zero’ around 2050. Limiting warming to 1.5°C is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics but doing so would require unprecedented changes. The effectiveness of such techniques are unproven at large scale and may carry significant risks for sustainable development”
What’s happening now is not about the climate, energy, or the environment. Instead, an unscientific and purposeful climate scare is being perpetrated by a new class of power elites to impose their will and right to rule over the rest of us. It is a backdoor way for progressives to impose central planning, socialism, and progressivism on once-free democracies.
“They had to find something that created an existential threat,” observes Jerry, “where they could warn ‘we’re all going to die unless you do what we say.'”
It is also about money. About three quarters of the money that President Obama spent on green energy went to people who were on his finance committee. Under President Biden, trillions have flowed to the green energy lobby, benefiting almost entirely Democrat donors.
These are strong statements but the more you dig into the faux science and the unstated agenda of the climate change regime, the more they ring true.
Dr. Jerome Corsi received a Ph.D. from Harvard University and has published over twenty-five books on economics, history, and politics, including six New York Times bestsellers, two at #1 “Unfit For Command” and “The Obama Nation”
Jerry is an erudite and charming guide to climate realities. Well worth a listen. I believe his book will become a must-read classic.
(By the way, you’ll be relieved to learn that, contrary to what AOC and Greta Thunberg believe, we’re not burning the mystical remains of long dead dinosaurs as “fossil fuels.” Jerry explains why.)
