Click below to venture back nearly 20 years and watch this 1990 documentary film "The Greenhouse Conspiracy" to learn what drives the global warming/climate change manufactured "crisis".
In short, here are the powerful forces behind the movement:
For Scientists, it is FUNDING
For the Media, it is A GOOD STORY
For Politicians, it is A WORTHY CAUSE
For Environmentalists it is GOOD (Environmentalism) vs EVIL (Capitalism)
In short, it's a philosophical war and the stakes are incredibly high since the environmentalists and their co-conspirators are demanding a fundamental economic restructuring of the world economy.
Even if they are right, the costs will be enormous. But if they are wrong, the costs will be enormous AND totally unnecessary!
The truth be told, they know they are wrong. That is why they recently changed the name of the crisis from "global warming" to "climate change". But to them, it matters not about the "crisis" since their war is with "Evil Capitalism". That is the real crisis in their minds.
