Berkeley Declares ‘Climate Emergency’ Worse Than World War II
Ed. The mind of the far left. Remember...these people are walking around LOOSE!
article appeared in Breitbart on June 15th
By Thomas D.
This week, the Berkeley City Council issued a resolution
declaring a worldwide climate emergency, calling it “the greatest crisis in
history” after evoking memories of World War II.
“The United States of
America has disproportionately contributed to the climate and ecological crises
and to preventing a transition away from fossil fuels, and Americans thus bear
an extraordinary responsibility to solve the crises,” the text reads.
Apparently the six
million Jews massacred during the Second World War, not to mention the other
tens of millions of casualties, do not measure up to the overarching evils of
climate change—at least in the minds of the Berkeley City Council.
and diseases produced by global warming “have already killed millions of people
in the Global South,” the document announces, adding that the earth is “already
too hot for safety and justice.”
“The global economy’s
overshoot of ecological limits and, increasingly climate change, are driving a
global fresh water scarcity crisis and the sixth mass extinction of species,
which could devastate much of life on earth for the next ten million years,”
the resolution warns.
To read through the
text, one would think that global warming has been behind every catastrophe and
uprising on the planet.
Climate change “has
been linked to the Syrian War, the rise of Boko Haram in Nigeria, as well as
the famines, water shortages, and resulting conflict in Yemen, Somalia, and
South Sudan,” the document pronounces.
Not only present
evils, however, but future calamities are also prophesied with astounding exactitude
The collapse of the
Greenland Ice Shelf, the resolution states, could result in “several billion
climate refugees,” or a substantial share of the entire population of the
population growth, and growing demand for food, energy and fresh water will
incite “violent conflict over diminishing resources” by the year 2030, the
document also forecasts with remarkable confidence.
The antidote to the
Council’s doomsday predictions are to take the world back to pre-industrial
levels of CO2 emissions, the text declares, conjuring images of bearded Amish
people driving about in horse-drawn carriages.
“restore a safe level of greenhouse gas concentrations and global average
temperatures well below today’s levels and back to pre-industrial levels as
quickly as possible,” it states.
Despite the Council’s
dire warnings, however, it turns out that scientists themselves are far less
certain that Berkeley’s elite council members.
For instance, only 22
percent of the 1,862 American Meteorological
Society (AMS) members surveyed in 2008 believe that “all” or a “large” amount
of the damage caused by global warming could be prevented by taking measures to
mitigate its effects.
correlation between carbon dioxide emissions and climate warming seems anything
Between 2002 and
2008, CO2 emissions increased from 24 billion tons to 29 billion. In
that same period, the global temperature anomaly decreased from 0.62C to 0.52C.
This fuzzy correlation
between CO2 emissions and increase in global temperature raises the question of
just what effect a radical decrease of carbon dioxide emissions would actually
have on the planet.
Not content with
prescribing a drastic cutback in global emissions, however, the Council members
forge onward to make a more insidious proposal: population control.
Auschwitz, 1945, after liberation. Probably just climate deniers
The Council argues in favor of finding ways to “humanely
stabilize population” as a means of mitigating the effects of global warming.
“The City of Berkeley
calls on the United States of America to initiate a just national mobilization
emergency effort to reverse global warming, which ends national greenhouse gas
emissions as quickly as possible and immediately initiates an effort to safely
draw down carbon from the atmosphere,” the text boldly proposes.
While one can only
have pity on local residents who must live under the heavy boot of the unhinged
Berkeley City Council, the rest of the nation can offer a collective sigh of
relief that their power extends no further.
