“How dare you!” — Greta Thunberg before the United Nations (to thunderous applause)
The global warming alarmists are everywhere. Al Gore is back with his scare-mongering. Anti-capitalist Naomi Klein has another new book out, “On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a New Green Deal”
and Jeremy Rifkin has written “The New Green Deal: Why the Fossil Fuel Civilization Will Collapse by 2028 and the Bold Economic Plan to Save Life on Earth.”
Even the Economist magazine, which should know better, has drunk the purple kool-aid with its recent “Climate Issue” (the Sept. 21 issue) warning of dramatically higher sea levels. The editors are prescient in saying, “it will be the death knell for economic freedom” and capitalism as we know it.
Ideas have consequences, especially bad ideas. Back in the 1970s, a Chinese official got a hold of Paul Erhlich’s bestseller, “The Population Bomb” and convinced the Chinese government to adopt its disastrous “one child” policy.
The Green New Deal could have similar disastrous consequences in the United States and around the world.
As economist Richard Ebeling states, “Greta Thunberg shouted, ‘how dare you’ to all of those who have not jumped on the climate change hysteria and demanded global central planning to set the planet right. Her temper tantrum does not deal with the reality of the limited impact that supposed ‘global warming’ is said to be threatening the world, and the, in fact, relatively minor consequences if nothing were done, as opposed to regulating material progress out of existence as demanded by the panic mode of ideological zealots.”
