"This (the birdemic) isn't a dangerous situation at all, yet they've shut down the world. It infuriates me to no end. If they can shut down the world for this stupidity, it means they could have shut down the world much sooner to fight the only real danger we're facing - climate change!
But they haven't. Not for climate change anyway," he continued sadly. "Their excuse? It would have hurt the economy. But they're more than willing to shut down the economy now! And for what? To save a few thousand people? Climate change is still there! That affects everyone. I hope they remember that once this virus disappears. What they're doing now is right, but it's for all the wrong reasons."
Well, my climate change-obsessed colleague can rest assured that "they" have not forgotten about climate change, and that "they" are certainly dealing with it, and that "they" are going to focus on doing all the right things for all the "right" reasons going forward.
Those who continue to cling to increasingly fading hopes of a return to normal after the birdemic appear utterly oblivious to one overarching fact - as far as our global totalitarian overlords are concerned, normal is unsustainable because of global warming . . . no wait, scratch that, climate change . . . no, I mean the climate emergency (which is the latest term The Science is using to refer to the Big Lie).
Here's the problem - normal is what currently sustains the 7+ billion human beings on the planet. If normal has become unsustainable, then what will sustain the earth's 7+ billion human population?
If you listen to the Establishment, the only thing that will save the earth is a complete System overhaul. Normal must be replaced a new sustainable global System of deep-green technologies, zero carbon production, protein alternatives, renewable energy, and all the rest of it.
Over the past decade or two, people have grown accustomed to regarding these terms and notions as mostly talk, which they mostly were, but the successful 2020 global totalitarian coup has granted our new technocratic overlords the opportunity to finally put their money where their mouths are.
In a short paper titled "50 Shades of Green", current climate crusader poster boy Mark Carney, who once headed the Bank of Canada and later the Bank of England, outlines a plan to construct a new financial system that will stop runaway climate change.
The choice of title for this proposal is very fitting because it barely veils the inherent sadistic pleasure Establishment figures like Carney experience when they divulge their plans to systematically dismantle the very foundations of the industrial complex upon which nearly all human life on this planet depends. Of course, Carney refers to this as a transition rather than a dismantling, but the motivation behind the terminology is clear.
Carney's vision is simple and straightforward - the global totalitarians are going to force every business on the planet to craft a green transition plan. The totalitarians will then evaluate those plans and decide which businesses receive investments and which won't. But the key to it all is the transition plan. Every business in the world will have to draw one up. If not . . . well, let's read Carney's own words about the matter (taken from the video below):
A year from now, the absence of a transition plan will likely be seen as either an intention to wind down a business over the coming decades or an assertion that the company is separate, or views itself as separate from society.
The former, winding down, may be logical. The latter, being apart from society, is unforgivable.
Replace the word "society" with the System and you get a clear picture of what kind of totalitarians our current rulers really are.
The Establishment is planning to put its money where its mouth is. Businesses that are completely onboard with climate emergency measures like net zero carbon will receive a lot of cash; business that are not, will cease to exist.
Looked at from a different angle, companies that comply with the agenda can participate in the totalitarianism of public-private partnership; those who don't, will be driven out of existence for moral rather than economic reasons.
Unfortunately, Carney's climate-related rhetoric cannot be laughed off in the same manner Greta Thunberg's climate-tirades often are. When Carney speaks, it is usually to inform the world of developing events rather than to simply whine about perceived problems.
The Tragedy of the Horizon is one of Carney's pet phrases, and he uses it to call attention to the climate emergency that so obsesses the Establishment. The phrase is apt - not because it paints an accurate picture of climate change dangers, but rather because it prophesies the looming human catastrophe the Establishment's totalitarian Ahrimanic schemes will trigger.
Fittingly enough, the Establishment's 50 Shades of Green will inevitably inflict a great deal of pain. The Tragedy of the Horizon will have nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with the Establishment's purported actions against the dreaded climate emergency.
Some degree of tragedy at the horizontal (worldly) level seems inevitable at this point. Our task will involve dealing with whatever horizontal tragedy eventually unfolds. Our success or failure individually will depend on our faith in and love for the vertical (spiritual), which is why I believe the spiritual imperative of system distancing is so important at this point.
The video below is from this past December; in it, Carney outlines the Establishment's envisioned transition from the unsustainable to the sustainable. Not exactly exciting viewing, but quite informative nonetheless.
