Letter to the editor: Climate change scam, sacrifice
Scams proliferate daily as we concern ourselves with billions being taken by crooks, while we casually overlook the trillions being taken by globalist bureaucrats in the name of “climate change.”
Their scam originates by scaring people into believing that the earth is in peril by unclear scientific, and often questionable, representations, and that to save it we have to tax everyone into the poorhouse. For the sacrifice of your wealth, the government promises to deliver to you a “feel good” statistic that you have helped save the world. It didn’t cost them a dime, but brought them trillions.
Your family’s monetary sacrifice gets you a meaningless air purity statistic, making you feel like a “good earth person,” while the world’s bureaucrats use your wealth to empower themselves, and their relatives’ and friends’ bank accounts.
Al Gore has made millions, and think about how little has been delivered since this scam started 20 years ago as “an inconvenient truth.” The scam and your sacrifice earn a pat on the back for being taken.
Technology will eventually replace fossil fuels with working economical renewable energy before the earth perishes. Patience will win the day if we quit spreading the fear and political lies that the need for a “Green New Deal” is urgent. America doesn’t have to join the globalist scam team while it leads the world in energy resources.
