When extremist climate ideology tries to trump economic reality
Sundance, writing at The Conservative Treehouse, posits that the governments of the Western world are engaged in a deliberate attempt to slow down the economies of, not just their own, but all nations, so as to accomplish their climate change goals.
Western governments’, specifically western Europe, North America (U.S-Canada) and Australia/New Zealand, are intentionally trying to lower economic activity to meet the intentional drop in energy production.
This is the core consequence of the Build Back Better agenda as promoted by the World Economic Forum.
Anyone who says there is a reference point to determine both the short-term and long-term consequences is lying. There is no precedent for nations’ collectively and intentionally trying to reduce economic activity.
Hiding behind the false justification that current inflation is driven by too much demand, central banks in Europe, the Bank of England, Bank of Canada and U.S. federal reserve are raising interest rates. The outcome we are currently feeling is an intentional economic contraction and global recession.
. . .
As the collective west attempts to, using their words, “manage the transition,” they do not have mechanisms to control an outcome of this magnitude. It is simply too big a situation to manage. Where the rubber meets the road, the think-tanks and high-minded climate change ideologues do not have the ability to manage a transition and still meet the needs of people. Beyond the esoteric thinking, there are real consequences from these actions.
Many people have discussed the potential for longer-term food shortages and recently, shorter-term winter heating. However, beyond that, the downstream geopolitical consequences are seemingly being ignored.
. . .
Unemployment in Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and even China, creates an entirely different set of regional stability issues on a geopolitical level.
There is no precedent for this. Never before in the history of industrialized nations has any government intentionally tried to lower its economic activity. It has never been done with intent before because within the contraction nations get more poor, people suffer.
Not only has no single nation ever tried to intentionally shrink its wealth, but there is no precedent whatsoever for an alliance of nations to join together with the same purpose. While this might seem like an academic economic modeling exercise, unfortunately it is very real. What I am describing is happening right now, and we had better start talking about it before the unforeseen consequences start to become a crisis.
. . .
I have no idea what that big picture consequence looks like, but whatever “that” is, will be happening at the same time as people everywhere will be more desperate as an outcome of their economic position. I don’t have the answers, but I sure as hell can see the problem coming.

Sundance's explanation fits the facts on the ground as I understand them. I think he's right on target, as he usually is. He's proving himself to be a commentator as astute and as well-informed as Tucker Carlson, or Victor Davis Hanson, or others of their ilk. If you aren't already reading The Conservative Treehouse every day, you should be.
C. S. Lewis' famous dictum comes to mind.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
That's what the climate change evangelists, and their pet politicians, are doing to us right now: trying to exercise tyranny over us. They truly believe that only they have the truth, and so the rest of us must be forced willy-nilly to follow their dictates, whether we like it or not. Resistance to them is resistance against Nature itself, which has taken over in their minds the place former ages reserved for God.
We know what they're doing. We can see it all around us. The question is, are we going to tolerate it? Put up with it? Submit to it?
