In this, our sixth episode of Madness Chronicles, we will see the climate crisis through the lens of insanity. As we do this, remember that insanity is a state of mental illness, especially extremely foolish and extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenetic or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at our world today, about to melt from climate change.
In Madrid, Spain, the UN held COP 25, a climate conference that brought together more than 30,000 people from around the world. And guess what? They flew in private and commercial jets to tell us not to travel on private planes. They pollute the environment. That strikes me as extremely silly behavior. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has spent a fortune on environmental causes, struggled to differentiate between right and wrong gases.
Wants to be President Nancy Pelosi took 14 Democrats with her to COP 25 at the UN. In his comments, he said: “By coming here we want to tell everyone, we are still in,” Pelosi said at a press conference in the Spanish capital, according to Politico. “The United States is still in.” I am not a lawyer (thank you. God), but she seems to be a US citizen who interferes in foreign affairs. But she’s a Democrat, so she gets a pass.
Greta Thunberg, of course, appeared with the bells in Madrid. Here is a small part of what he said: “” That action must be powerful and powerful. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, justice and political will. Colonial, racist and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and nurtured it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities. “She went on to say, ‘Schoolchildren are leading the way.’
At that point, it would be good to point out a small example of school-age children leading the way. I live about 80 miles north of the Missoula People’s Republic. Home to the University of Montana or as we like to call it ‘Berkeley North’. Some people at a Missoula high school told us what their children went through during the highly organized week of climate protest. Teachers informed all students that they were free to go and protest and that they would not be mugged for skipping school, nor would their grades suffer as a result. One of the parents’ daughters decided not to participate and has been paying for it ever since. Her teachers were not happy with her. School children leading the way? Barely. Madness. You gamble!
In a madness that left Scandinavia, home of Greta, Ole Waever, a well-known professor of international relations at the University of Copenhagen, surprised everyone. He recently told ABC News in Australia that the United Nations can resort to military action against states that defy its mandates on global climate action. He said the UN will not tolerate ‘climate inaction’ and, according to Ole Wæver, a prominent professor of international relations at the University of Copenhagen, is considering other means to ensure that its goals are met, even if it leads to global armed conflict. . Pretty serious stuff for a team that depends on the United States for most of its money and its base of operations.
Do you realize that Dr. Patrick Moore, one of the founding members of Greenpeace, the original organization that sells insanity, doesn’t even support the theories behind man-made climate change?
I hope you have a good start to the New Year and until next time … have fun, enjoy life and watch out for the madness between us.
