If you’ve been suckered into believing the false narrative of man-made “global warming” or “climate change,” you’re probably not old enough to remember the global cooling propaganda fear campaign of the 1970s. (Al Gore is counting on the public having a really short memory, by the way, and he hasn’t been disappointed.)
Throughout the 1970s, every university scientist was taught that the Earth would soon be covered in ice sheets, that crops would fail, populations would collapse and human civilization would suffer mass starvation. What was the cause of all this? Human activity, of course, which caused “pollution” that made the world cooler, claimed the experts.
If you’re not old enough to have witnessed all this, you might think the whole “climate change” narrative is some big, new, scary emergency that has suddenly emerged and needs dire attention. But it turns out that the fake news mainstream media runs a climate scare every generation or so, sometimes claiming the Earth is “cooling” and other times insisting it’s “warming.” They can’t both be true, obviously, which is one important clue that tells you just how much they’re lying about so-called “climate science.” (It’s also why they have reverted to “climate change” instead of “global warming” so that they can insinuate every tornado, hurricane, rain storm or earthquake is ridiculously caused by carbon dioxide.)
