Global Warming And Money
I remember when “Global Warming” became a buzzword way back in the '80s. It started with a few studies, then turned into a political movement.
Like anything “environmental”, whether or not Global Warming is actually taking place does not need to be proven. Rather, the strategy is the
usual one: set up “independent” front institutions, send out the youthful foot soldiers, issue lots of press releases, pass bribes and push for
Supporting such legislation are various studies from various sources. What most dogmatists – pro or con -- tend to overlook, however, is who pays
for these studies, and why they pay for them.
Studies of Global Warming are not free. In fact, some of them are very expensive. Governments pick up some of the costs, but guess who pays for most
The dreaded “multinational corporations”.
Now hold on a second. Why would multinational corporations, who as everyone knows are evil and corrupt and hate the environment, have any
interest at all in Global Warming?
Because any sort of large-scale technological conversion has to be done by someone. It isn't magic. Someone has to do it.
Remember CFCs and the Ozone Layer? Trillions of dollars have been made converting refrigerants. And guess who made all that money? You guessed
And who paid for it? If you use a refrigerator, have air conditioning in your home or own a car with air conditioning, you did. Even if you
don't own any of these things, you paid for the costs of every business you buy goods and services from who themselves had to pay to make the
Any technological change will require purchasing new equipment, converting systems and disposing of old equipment. Whenever that happens, the
companies who do these things make money. That's how it works.
Personally, I don't know if Global Warming is fact or fiction. I also don't know if or how much of it may be due to human activity. I have not
chosen a religion in this debate.
But of one thing I am absolutely certain, and I want to make sure anyone reading this knows:
GLOBAL WARMING IS BIG BUSINESS
Whatever your opinion, pro, con or indifferent, I urge you to keep this fact in mind, and remember to follow the money.
P.S. If you are a “green activist”, you are almost certainly being used as a pawn by multinationals. Follow the money. The big boys have
been cashing in on “the environment” for decades.
Don't believe me? Look into it yourself, if you dare.
