Surviving a Fake Climate Apocalypse is Going to be Harder than Surviving a Real One Would Have Been

We are supposed to be undergoing a genuine climate apocalypse, according to the corporate media mainstream information gatekeepers. According to these highly placed persons of limited intellect and even more limited knowledge, we have been on the verge of — or experiencing — a genuine climate apocalypse for over 50 years. And the hits just keep on coming….

Predictions of disaster get a lot of attention — especially from the bored and easily diverted. Unfortunately, devious huxters in government, media, and academia are gaining a lot of mileage out of hoodwinking the easily fooled. These huxters are ginning up a fake climate apocalypse that has taken on all the trappings of a mass movement religion and lynch mob. Religious zealots and lynch mobs are not in any mood to think things through.

But somehow this time will be different, and the ‘experts’ and 16-year olds of today will suddenly be correct in their new predictions of eco-doom and eco-disaster? Not.

California is the worst place to try to survive the fake climate apocalypse. That is because California — of all the 50 states — has gone deepest into the dark side.

The sale of new internal-combustion cars and light trucks will be banned beginning in 2035; the ban on the sale of large diesel trucks starts in 2045. (On January 1 of this year, the ban on operating diesel trucks with engines manufactured before 2010 took effect.) And, though the recent imbroglio over a nationwide ban on the sale of gas stoves has settled down, California has enacted just such a ban, which takes effect in 2030. In that same year, the state will prohibit new gas furnaces and water heaters, and a ban on both the sale and use of gas-powered small engines (for example, lawnmowers, chainsaws, and portable generators) begins next year. __ California’s Green Debacle

These opportunists in government, academia, and media — and the fanatics among the bored and impressionable elites — have just gotten started. They intend to take this fake climate apocalypse to the very limit, no matter who has to suffer and die. These elites and opportunists think of you in the same way that Putin thinks about Ukrainians — you are in their way.

The green energy religion

The recycling religion

The carbon offset religion

There is a reason why electric power production in advanced nations has been built upon coal, natural gas, nuclear, and hydropower, if available. Those forms of power production are reliable — they can be turned on and off — and when used together they can match virtually any pattern of energy use at any scale. They work very well at regulating frequency and voltage, at reasonable costs for developed nations. They are robust, unlike the intermittent and unreliable low quality, low density sources of energy such as wind or solar. You can build an industrial superpower on top of coal, natural gas, nuclear, and hydropower.

What makes a system strong or robust?  In additions to high-capacity transmission lines, the anchoring source is large rotating machines that operate in synchronism with the grid. They provide inertia, they can respond quickly through ramping, they can inject vars, they increase short circuit MVA (mega volt amperes).  All good things necessary for a reliable power system.  Asynchronous generation, sources which don’t spin with the system, such as wind and solar, do not as readily add strength to a system; rather they tend lean on other resources.

Synchronous generators provide essential reliability services  which are needed for the operation of the grid.  The primary services are voltage control, frequency control and balancing services. Conventional generators (coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydro) readily provide these ser vices because they rotate in synchronism with the grid.  Not all resources do.  To quote from the US Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy”:

Are You Serious About Surviving?

Modern Leftism and the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement

It is going to be difficult surviving the fake climate apocalypse, because you are not really supposed to survive. The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT) is an integral part of the modern leftist juggernaut, and they are not kidding around.

The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT[A]) is an environmental movement that calls for all people to abstain from reproduction in order to cause the gradual voluntary extinction of humankind. VHEMT supports human extinction primarily because, in the group’s view, it would prevent environmental degradation.

VHEMT Wikipedia

The modern left is in control of most universities and most media outlets, and is busy creating leftist clone-thinkers in classrooms and over the internet using every tool at its command. Governments in the western world are likewise largely controlled by leftist drones, who have been university educated by other well-positioned leftist drones. The “human extinction” element of modern leftism is kept largely in the background, for fear that the masses might wake up and rebel against their drone-like overlords in media, government, and academia. But you should understand that while the loudmouths are warning you about “climate change” and “environmental disaster,” what they are not saying out loud is that they would prefer to just get you the hell out of their way.

And so they are doing just that through their policies.

By making electric power production unreliable and exorbitantly expensive, they are increasing the costs of business for both consumers and for the enterprises that employ consumers and produce the goods and services that consumers need, at previously affordable prices.

By making internal combustion engine automobiles illegal, and allowing only the use of short range electric vehicles for individuals, they limit the mobility of individuals and groups of individuals. Rather like a full time “lockdown,” except without the pandemic.

By limiting freedom of thought and freedom of speech, they create docile sheep-like persons capable only of groupthink. See George Orwell’s masterpiece 1984 to understand the sort of existence they seek to create.

By promoting LGBQT ideology and by teaching children that growing up and procreating will destroy the planet, they are contributing to ever-lower birthrates among educated persons, leading to a loss of the human capital that will be needed to build an expansive and abundant human future.

The list could go on, but all you need to do to see the broad array of battlefronts lined up to do you in is to read between the lines of what the corporate media mainstream information gatekeepers are telling you. Visit libraries, bookstores, and internet lists of published books, and see what kind of mental fodder is being fed to the human livestock. Read lists and descriptions of classes at your local colleges and universities. If you have children of school age, demand the right to observe the teachers in the classroom, filling their little minds with the doctrines du jour.

It is a vile flood of dominance policies from government, media, academia, and other social institutions — meant to overwhelm you and your cohorts at every level of existence. They are hoping that they will be successful at rapidly trimming populations while continuously building influence over all levels of information and other forms of behavior control.

Compared to what they have been setting up over the past 50 + years, surviving a genuine climate apocalypse would be a breeze.

Resilience, robustness, toughness, and anti-fragility. It is coming to the point that surviving the fake crises foisted on us by our overlords, will be a full time job.
