The Climate Emergency Big Lie - what it tells us about Them

All this was inspired by the principle - which is quite true in itself - that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.

From 'My Struggle' by Herr A. Hitler, painter and politician (1889-1945)

The evolving hoax of 'Climate Change', is incomparably the biggest Big Lie that has ever been perpetrated on the world. Indeed, starting with the falsehood that climate can be predicted; the Big Climate Lie is many-many lies-piled-upon-lies to reach the insane conviction that a world government can control the world climate to within a degree - if only it is given complete surveillance and micro-control over everything.

In other words - the totalitarian agenda.

Okay - that's been the last 25-plus years. A quarter century, trillions of dollars, trillions of man-hours, galactic volumes of verbal hot-air; an incomprehensibly massive drain of effort, time and resources; infliction of heavy economic damage; and immense environmental destruction - all because The Big Lie.

But now we have a state of Climate Emergency. In other words, the global Establishment is pushing very hard, everywhere, by all means at its disposal, to be given totalitarian powers as a matter of emergency

This is a Power Grab, the power grab: a coup d'etat intended to be complete and final - this is the urgent and rapid attempt at totalitarian takeover - and it is happening here and now. 

First of it, it is helpful to contemplate the sheer insanity of this situation. Truly it is hard to comprehend that so many could collaborate in fabricating such colossal untruth; and to believe the sheer impudence of such infamous distortion of reality. It beggars belief that this, of all imaginable issues, should have become the core rationale for the implementation of a totalitarian world dictatorship.

Yet here we are.

Why this? Why now?

Why this? Because this lie works - it has been tested and developed over a quarter century. Okay...

But why now? That's the interesting question. Why now, and why not sometime before or later?

My answer is that the answer is not that this time is optimal. It is not optimal. The Climate Emergency movement did not emerge from a rising groundswell of public opinion. To the contrary, the Climate Emergency came out of the blue, and after several years during which - in the mass public mind - climate change had faded in significance and was the subject of increasing doubts (as reality stubbornly failed to conform to delusion).

Yet, They (i.e. the global establishment) regard it as necessary to do this Now. Why?

My assumption is either that They regard it as either possible for the first time, or necessary because of some risk to the project.

On the one hand, the expansion of population demoralisation, surveillance and control; mass population migration and the ability to trigger deadly civil disorder etc... - these may all be in place now; such that - for the first time - centralised  dictatorship is a genuine possibility, easily graspable.

So let's get on with it... 

(They may be right or wrong about this. I am suggesting how it may look to Them in order that the Climate Emergency button was pushed.)

Or else, conversely; They are worried about something going wrong with their plans; such that They suddenly feel the need to press-ahead, despite the fact that the ground has Not been optimally prepared, and Not enough people are sufficiently ready for what is being proposed.

(They may be right or wrong about the rising risk to their plans. Again, I am simply suggesting how things may seem to Them.)

Two opposite possibilities.

The totalitarian power grab that is Climate Emergency is happening Now; either because of Their strength, or because of Their weakness.

Whatever the answer you decide does not change what you ought-to be doing; but it should be encouraging to speculate that the international attempted coup that is Climate Emergency may be product of panic, rather than the long anticipated final step of step of a decades long master plan.

You have addressed the issue extensively on this blog, and I have touched on it here and there myself, but the question you raise in this post is crucial. Why? Why now?

Either of the options is viable, but I tend to think they are pushing it hard out of fear. There is a sloppy sort of urgency about it all that hints at panic. They need the power, and they need it now.

Unfortunately, most people do not sense this in the slightest and are only to happy to go along with and give in to the big lie (with protest movements like the yellow vests being notable exceptions, but even these might be helping to serve the purpose in the end). Young people are particularly prone to regarding the climate change matter with what I can only describe as a sort of pedestrian seriousness.

It is always disconcerting to a rational atheist (= me) to find more sense amongst God-botherers (e.g. you) than among other purportedly rational beings.

It is, as a female sage once observed, a funny old world.

William Wildblood said...

Bruce, is the idea that the bogeymen of climate change and the destruction of the environment are being used by forces who seek to create fear so that a totalitarian takeover is not just justified but actively welcomed? 40 years ago I was very concerned about the despoliation of the natural world and things have got considerably worse since then but I dislike environmentalism almost as much (not quite as much) because of the self-righteousness and general fakery surrounding it.

Also, the climate is changing somewhat isn't it, but the objections would be that a) the degree to which that is man-made is unproven, and b) our ability to either predict or control it is minimal. So fear-mongering is being used to bring about the undeclared aim of control. Do I have this right?

Bruce Charlton said...

@William - Yes, that's it - by declaring it an emergency, they are posing as our saviours - much as if there was an alien invasion of earth.

Modern environmentalism net-damages the environment. Just like everything else - the name is kept, but the organisation sheltering under it has almost reversed what it actually does.

yes about a & b. Nobody knows what causes climate change - except that the sun is by far the most important driver; and nobody can predict the future of the sun activity (other than its regualr cycles, and they don't awlays conform). Nobody can predict climate, nobody has a clue about controlling it.

But instead of throwing-us these false and abitrary claims of knowledge and capability, our leadership demands that all their claims about *everything* Must be believed and acted upon. And, being a Godless and gutless society, we believe them.

William Wildblood said...

Thanks. It's clear that we are being encouraged to behave in a certain way that makes us more passive and supine and ready to welcome bureaucratic control as, in your words, our saviour. The West is also expected to give up its power because Western people, particularly, I would say, Western men, and among those Americans and British who have the greatest tradition of freedom, are the most likely to resist and rebel.

Philip Keefe said...

I don't know exactly when the so-called Climate "Emergency" talk started but Climate Change is a big election wedge issue here in the United States and so the Democrats will be pushing it to get votes heading into 2020.
Also at this time of the year as we move into the hurricane season on the east coast when the next big one arrives they'll have the satisfaction of saying they told us so! Philip

Bruce Charlton said...

@ Philip - According to Google Trends, people started talking about Climate Emergency at the beginning of this year; then it took-off in April leading to the UK Government officially-declaring a state of Climate Emergency on 1 May 2019; then several days of state-approved 'protests' were implemented and allowed in central London, causing travel chaos for several days.

It's a classic example of what David Icke calls Problem-Reaction-Solution. They declared/ provoked a 'problem'; amplified it a thousandfold in the media by saturation-reported billionaire-funded/ astroturf protests; the intention is that there will be a 'reaction' to these fake-demands where the authorities will provide a (pre-prepared) 'solution' (which ratchets the totalitarian agenda).

Bruce Charlton said...

@William - " Western men, and among those Americans and British who have the greatest tradition of freedom, are the most likely to resist and rebel."

But since the British became post-religious, there has been no significant popular resistance or rebellion - the only instance I can think of genuine popular resistance was the fuel strikes (by HGV drivers, about the price of deisel) for a couple of weeks in 2000.

Bruce Charlton said...

Comment from John Douglas - As you know our new North of Tyne 'Mayor' has made his first policy decision; he has declared a 'climate emergency'
Two conclusions can be deduced from this: The first is that he does not have anything else to do, in which case why do we even need a new mayor? The second is, as you say, fear that his idealogical message is being ignored and all of the evidence is overwhelmingly against the hubris that 'proud man' can influence or control the natural cycles of nature.
This is my own experience over the past 60+ years of the natural world and the awesome power of nature -

I don't think the people who call it a Climate Emergency actually believe it is one. If they did, they would seek to make common cause with Conservatives and Libertarians, who both have solid philosophical justifications for not despoiling the natural world (respectively, preserving it for future generations, and not polluting other peoples property). Yet instead, they seek to use it to push for left-wing policies, which makes it clear that their proposed solution is what they consider important here.

From the establishments point of view, I think it's fear. They're turning up the heat because the frogs have started to notice, and they're hoping that they can get the cooking done before we have a chance to leap. Though it might have been a mistaken view of their strength at first, which they didn't think would cause a backlash. Their overconfidence is their weakness.

Bruce Charlton said...

@C - Para one - That's a good point.

Fear - I think yes, probably; although I need to remind myself that the backlash They fear is a *spiritual* awakening - and not some kind of organised political resistance. i.e. The War being waged on us is spiritual - They are seeking our self-damnation, not our pain or death.

Cererean said...


As Frost and Wither discover when they try inducting Mark Studdock into their innermost ring, pushing someone too far can provoke a spiritual backlash. The more they try and force clown world upon us and destroy all that is green and good in the world, the more people will realise that there actually *is* green and good in the world. Their need to destroy the good wherever they find it will be their undoing. So it has always been.
