Surge Summary: The actual evidence indicates it is not climate change which is the threat to the modern world, but climate change hysteria.

by Robert Knight

Run for your lives. Again.

The UN has issued yet another global warming report that essentially says we’re doomed unless we revert to mud huts, subsistence farming, veganism and rickshaws.

In fact, we may be doomed anyway, even if we drive all our gasoline-powered Fords into the ocean and walk home.

The latest panic comes courtesy of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which issued a voluminous report on March 20 warning us that it’s all over but the crying.

We haven’t seen this much panic since COVID was concocted in China and used to justify government overreach and shocking suppression of civil liberties.

Predicted weather catastrophes have little to do with nature’s cycles or sun activity, the UN says. It’s our fault. Humans have selfishly exploited fossil fuels to give ourselves indoor plumbing, electricity, cars, modern medicine and dentistry, air conditioning, prosperity, higher life expectancy, the internet, space exploration and Kelly Clarkson live streaming from Japan.

More importantly, billions of people have been lifted from poverty the world over because of plentiful, cheap fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal. But that must end, we’re told, along with CO2 emissions. That’s the stuff we breathe out and which helps plants grow.

Despite dramatically increased levels of C02, the atmosphere cooled slightly from 1950 to 1985, and again slightly from 1997 to 2015. This is not contested by scientists on either side, notes James T. Moodey, who owned a Weights and Measures gas-physics test and repair facility.

A condensed version of Mr. Moodey’s paper, “Three Proofs Carbon Dioxide Causes No Warming in the Atmosphere – No Gas Causes Warming,” can be found in his book “The Ladder Out of Poverty.

He used data and experiments, not theory or computer models, to test the idea that CO2 causes atmospheric warming. “The simplest of our three proofs is easy to comprehend,” he wrote. “We tested carbon dioxide’s ability to retain heat. It cools 22 degrees in 3 minutes and 45 seconds. It cannot possibly retain heat from day to day.”

But forget this and listen to the Washington Post’s dire summary: “Human activities have already transformed the planet at a pace and scale unmatched in recorded history, the IPCC said, causing irreversible damage to communities and ecosystems. Yet global emissions continue to rise, and current carbon-cutting efforts are wildly insufficient to ward off climate catastrophe.”

In other words, if we don’t do whatever Al Gore (net worth $300 million) wants us to do in the next 10 years, we are doomed.

“Climate disasters will become so extreme that people will not be able to adapt. Basic components of the Earth system will be fundamentally, irrevocably altered. Heat waves, famines and infectious diseases could claim millions of additional lives by century’s end,” Post reporter Sarah Kaplan wrote while clutching her heart.

So, even though windmills and solar panels can provide only a fraction of the energy we need, nations must “drastically transform their economies and immediately transition away from fossil fuels, according to one of the most definitive reports ever published about climate change,” Ms. Kaplan scribbled before fainting into Mr. Gore’s arms.

Not really. Mr. Gore was more likely sipping a mint julep in his 20-room energy hog Tennessee mansion or jetting around the globe.

Speaking of the globe, if anyone is making it warmer via emissions, it’s Communist China.

“Beijing is currently bringing more coal-fired power plants online just between now and 2025 than the United States has in total,” Alex Newman wrote in The Epoch Times. Mr. Newman added that China has about half of the world’s coal power capacity and “already emits more than twice as much CO2 as the United States, according to the Global Carbon Project.” Meanwhile, China is spending a comparative pittance on alternative energy.

On March 10, U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm praised China’s climate change efforts, saying, “I think China has done — has been very sensitive, and has actually invested a lot in their solutions, to achieve their goals…. We’re hopeful that, you know, we can all learn from what China is doing.”

Remember when Democrats emulated China’s COVID lockdowns and vax mandates and how well that went?

Meanwhile, we’re the ones who are supposed to “drastically transform” our fossil-fuel powered market economy. So far, all this has done under President Biden is to trigger pain at the pump and ruinous inflation.

As for Ms. Granholm, she’s a true believer in climate hysteria. She made a cameo appearance in a 2018 music video “Gasoline, Gasoline (The World’s Aflame)” produced by Coltura, a leftist group backed by the Tides Foundation, whose sugar daddy is America-hating George Soros.

When he’s not spending $40 million to install crime-loving Democrat district attorneys in American cities, Mr. Soros is campaigning for the Great Reset, in which America goes socialist, abandons energy independence and is reduced to Third World status under global governance.

This mindset can be seen in the rhetoric pouring out of Davos, corporate America’s reckless embrace of ESG activism and the sudden collapse of woke institutions like Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

Climate change may pose no real threat to our children’s future, but the same can’t be said for climate change hysteria.

Crooked: What Really Happened in the 2020 Election and How to Stop the Fraud

By Robert Knight

160 pages, fully footnoted and indexed. (2022 D. James Kennedy Ministries.) Available at the website store.

In 2020, the Left in America seized control of all three elected branches of the federal government. We have been paying for it ever since. But was the election fair and honest?

We are told every day that we cannot even ask that question lest we be “cancelled” as “election deniers.”

Yet, there is massive evidence that vote fraud, unconstitutional election law rigging and Big Tech manipulation yielded a pre-determined result. The media, which should be shining a light on all this, instead labels all such suggestions as “baseless,” “falsehoods,” or simply “false.” Instead of defending freedom of speech and free inquiry, the press vilifies anyone stepping outside their narrative.

For more than 244 years, America’s Christian culture and its continued influence have combined with limits on government imposed by the Constitution to make the United States the freest, most prosperous nation in history. But forces have been at work for decades to “liberate” us from self-government.

This book exposes the many threats to free elections posed by un-American, socialist activists. But it’s also meant to inspire patriotic Americans to resist intimidation and to restore limited government under God.
