The Club of Rome and beyond: How the socialist religion of environmentalism was born

Tim BallRebel Columnist

The entire world needed the new paradigm of environmentalism. The problem is that a few grabbed it for a political agenda.

They used it as a vehicle to take the moral high ground, to claim only they cared about the environment. They argue that everyone else was guilty of environmental destruction because of their avarice and wasteful ways.

Environmentalism as a political agenda is pushed by extremely wealthy and powerful left wing people who made their money exploiting the environment. The psychology of that is beyond the realm of this discussion, but consider the hypocrisy of George Soros, Maurice Strong, Bill Gates, the Rockefeller’s, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ted Turner among many others. The confusion is similar to surrounding another person who most people think was a right wing fascist, but was in fact a socialist promoting environmentalism, Adolf Hitler. (Nazi stands for "National Socialism.")

Collectively, most of these environmentalists people acted through their privileged group called the Club of Rome. The founding meeting of the Club occurred in 1968 at David Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy. In their 1994 book "The First Global Revolution," they declared:

“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself."

They claim the list of enemies is designed to unite people. In fact, it is needed to overcome what they see as the divisiveness of nation-states and to justify the establishment of one-world government or global socialism. Global warming is a global problem, they insist, that national governments alone cannot resolve.

They finally settled on global warming as the environmental issue best suited for their goal. Of course, the plan is just the beginning. One of my favorite cartoons from "The New Yorker" showed Moses on the mountain with the Ten Commandments. The caption read “Great idea, who is going to fund it?” Global warming and the identification of human produced CO2 as the problem suited all the political, financial, and religious controls, a socialist group desire.

The Kyoto Protocol was presented as a solution to the problem of human-caused global warming. Those who created the Protocol also created the problem. Through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) they produced the science required to support their claim. It is a well-thought out, well-planned, classic circular argument. Create the problem, create the proof of the problem -- then offer the solution.

They said, incorrectly, that a CO2 increase causes temperature increase. They provided proof. They programmed their computer models so that a CO2 increase caused a temperature increase. They ran the model(s) while keeping all else steady, what in science is called "ceteris paribus." Naturally, the model results showed a temperature increase, which they then claimed proved their thesis.

CO2 through Kyoto provided the religious basis for the socialist agenda. Nations who developed their economies and became wealthy using CO2 were now supposed to pay for their sins by giving money to those nations who suffered. It was a penance. In the medieval Catholic Church, you could buy indulgences to bypass the punishment of hell. Carbon credits are the modern equivalent, and Al Gore was the equivalent of The Pardoner selling indulgences, depicted in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

CO2 through Kyoto provided the political basis for the socialist agenda: the redistribution of wealth with money taken from the successful developed nations and given to the less successful developing nations. This operation required one-world government and a world banking agency.

CO2 through Kyoto provided the financial basis for the socialist agenda. Money needed to fund the socialist government was to come in the form of a global carbon tax. The November 2009 Conference of the Parties 15 (COP15) in Copenhagen, involved finalizing details of the Kyoto Protocol, including a carbon tax gathered by the International Monetary Fund.

Somebody knew the political agenda was based on the false science and leaked emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) as evidence. The major scientists controlling the IPCC worked at the CRU. The disclosure effectively delayed the political process because the COP can only act on the science provided by the IPCC. The delay was only temporary because most didn’t understand the science or know the implications of the leaked emails.

In 2010 at COP16 in Durban they produced the replacement socialist program called the Green Climate Fund (GCF). COP21 in Paris in December 2015 authorized the process.

Vaclav Klaus, former President of the Czech Republic, was the only world leader to identify what was going on. I heard speak at the Heartland Climate Conference in New York in 2004. His opening comment was that the world went through 70 years of communism, so why the hell would you want to go back to it?

He made his case effectively in his book "Blue Planet in Green Shackles" where he wrote:

“It should be clear by now to everyone that activist environmentalism (or environmental activism) is becoming a general ideology about humans, about their freedom, about the relationship between the individual and the state, and about the manipulation of people under the guise of a “noble” idea. It is not an honest pursuit of “sustainable development,” a matter of elementary environmental protection, or search for rational mechanisms design to achieve a healthy environment. Yet things do occur that make you shake your head remind yourself that you live neither is Joseph Stalin’s Communist era, you’re in the Orwellian utopia of 1984.”

Working the pipeline i have seeded more ground then the green kooks ever will. I have also seen some breathtaking animals in the wild that the tree huggers will never see since they stay in their dirty cities and point fingers while never stepping away from their luxuries and conveniences that they only have due to fossil fuels.

The most important fact to rebut the GW hoax is that there actually exists no evidence for its proposition.

It is an evidenceless hypothesis.
It is mere conjecture.

All that the proponents of the conjecture have to grasp on to is a subset of scientists (way less than 97%) saying they “THINK” CO2 may have a possible influence beyond statistical insignificance.
And from that opinion point as the germ, the political propaganda spinning and exaggeration commenced.

Even Obama; just a couple days ago; said of AGW (anthropogenic global warming), “is unequivocal”.
And he also tweeted a few months ago, “is not open to debate”

These are massive red flags of close-mindedness, groupthink, with an unwillingness to respect contrary opinion. This is very cultish and creepy. Turdo is just as cultish.

Once those in positions of power tune out the other side of the argument, we have a real problem folks.

But it does demonstrate the seductive power of The Appeal To Authority fallacy (if the IPCC says so, it must be true)

When you earn the truth about the political/ideological elite clique networkinf that designed and drives the global crisis fearmongering dogmas and runs the rackets which feed from the hysteria, it makes an X-files episode seem like predictive programming.

In January 2010, Richard Foot did a story on Joseph D’Aleo, founder of the The Weather Network, who detailed how temperature stations around the world that registered cooler than average temperatures were being progressively eliminated, making it appear that the globe was warming when in fact, it was (and is) either stable or even cooling. In other words, global warming is a con job. Who benefits from it? The left, in all of its facets. They use it as a wedge issue to separate voters from conservative parties. They use it to financially reward themselves in a myriad of ways. They use it to create a new culture of intolerance against the Judeo-Christian culture that built prosperity in the Western world and that opposes socialist slavery and poverty. In short, ‘climate change’ is a leftist elitist con job on the world.

Oh but you did mention the Rockefellers!. They are hardly socialists, so not exactly hypocrites.

You forgot to mention those other stalwarts of environmentalism: Thomas Malthus, Wilhelm Riehl, Moritz Arndt, the Rockefeller family, Oil mogul Robert O Anderson, … Not exactly a bastions of socialism are they?

Great posting Mr. Ball!!
I believe the vast majority of people – here in Canada – are too busy keeping the “fire” burning to realize that they are being hood-winked by this globalist agenda.
All people in the north would welcome global warming – as it would greatly reduces heating costs AND reduce “carbon emissions” LOL!!
One thing – which is a fact – is that all plants require CO2 to flourish – so it seems that these globalist types are attempting to reverse the vegetation growth which comes down to food supply quantities.

I planted 300,000 seedlings for Georgia-Pacific over 3 summers in the early 1980’s. Therefore, I should be able to travel around the world everyday by a Boeing 767 theoretically speaking and still have ample room to burn more carbon.

My buds worked on the Norther Pipeline in the late 70’s way up north. They worked in temperatures of minus 80 degrees. So now it’s going to be minus 78, and the world is going to thaw out? And cause catastrophic floods? LOL!!

You gotta love Dr. Ball no? Thank-you sir!!!

Kelvin Grabowsky, I couldn’t possibly agree more. However, we’re still a small minority, particularly here in BC. You may get some support from the working men and women, and business people in the BC interior, but west of the coast mountain range, everyone seems to be socialists, particularly in Vancouver and Victoria, and on the University campuses. I don’t know how bad things are going to have to get before they see the light, but obviously worse than things are now. However, by then it may be too late. I want out of this screwed up confederation NOW!!!

As always, an excellent synopsis by Tim Ball – who knows where all the dogs are buried and can debate with eco-crazies chapter and verse – and good comment by Bill Elder listing the perpetuators of the greatest scam in modern history… The only positive correction is that Maurice Strong is now rotting in Hell – the same Maurice Strong who, while chairman of Ontario Hydro, used Ontario electricity consumer dollars to buy thousands of acres of jungle land in Costa Rica… Bill’s list includes communists, world federalists, opportunists, eco-nuts, useful idiots, and some still pissed off because they never made the high school football team…

We should start by taking our Country back. We have to rid ourselves of Trudeau, Wynne and Notley. People like these are all involved in this Marxist New World Order.

Great, an article that is getting very close to the mark. Thank you Tim Ball, obviously you are someone who has done some investigating into the power structures that are really directing the shape and the direction our Governments are pushing us in. The big picture is not Trudeau, Obama or Notely, they are the puppets, they are just dots in the picture. When you start to connect the dots you start to see the real picture, the real power Brokers, those that are the puppet masters (shadow Government). If you are not aware that their goal/agenda is a Globalist, One World Government, run by Technocratic Oligarchs, where the common people are feudalistic slaves, well than, my good friends, you have not done enough research. When your eyes are finally opened and you do realize what they are planning/doing, I hope it is not too late. Unfortunately, it may already be too late. “None Dare Call It Conspiracy”.

It sounds like a utopia Kevin. Isn’t that crazy. What we used to have now seems distant enough to feel like the ‘garden’ we need to get back to.

This is why it is imperative for Alberta and Saskatchewan to push for separation ( BC. and Manitoba would soon follow). A western country must take the initiative away from the globalists and show the error in the message to the rest of the world, where prosperity and ethical standards can be sustained without the shelling out of money on these useless green agendas. A place where radical religious ideology is not tolerated and a place where the three r’s and truth are taught in schools and universities and not brainwashed by self interested green idiologs .

I’m all in for climate change. Embrace it with all my heart. I turn 65 this year. I’ve lived my whole life in Yukon, Alberta and now Manitoba. Colder places exist, I’m sure, but these are pretty cold non-the-less. Time for me to take my OAS and CPP and find a warm spot to set my old ass down and leave the hand wringers to their ridiculous narrative. I’m just sorry that my kids have to help pay for this debacle. At least they’ll be able to take advantage of my global warming with a visit now and then.

This Climate change hoax, has always just been a vehicle, a mode of delivery. A way to corral us, control us, and make us pliable and submissive. One world order coming down the turnpike.

Thank you Dr, Tim for de-mysyifying these globalist think tanks involvement in planetary crisis hysteria.- and for getting it out there about the Club of Rome’s involvement in using global crisis hysteria to drivethe global governance agenda.

CoR “the global revolution” is a blueprint for installing global Maxism and marrying it to global finance. The climate fear mongering and subsequent global redistribution of wealth and resource regulating is their baby – let’s make sure they abort it.

The past and resent list of CoR members reads like a who’s who of transnational communists and bag men:

Al Gore – former VP of the USA, leading climate change campaigner, Gore lead the US delegations to the Rio Earth Summit and Kyoto Climate Change conference. He owns the first international carbon credit exchange bank in the US.

Javier Solana – Secretary General of the Council of the European Union, High Representative for EU Foreign Policy.

Maurice Strong – former Head of the UN Environment Programme, Chief Policy Advisor to Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the Rio Earth Summit, co-author (with Gorbachev) of the Earth Charter, co-author of the Kyoto Protocol, founder of the Earth Council, devout Baha’i currently living in China t avoid incarceration in the US.

Mikhail Gorbachev – CoR executive member, former President of the Soviet Union, founder of Green Cross International and the Gorbachev Foundation, Nobel Peace Prize winner, co-founder (with Hidalgo) of the Club of Madrid, co-author (with Strong) of the Earth Charter.

Diego Hidalgo – CoR executive member, co-founder (with Gorbachev) of the Club of Madrid, founder and President of the European Council on Foreign Relations in association with George Soros.

Ervin Laszlo – founding member of the CoR, founder and President of the Club of Budapest, founder and Chairman of the World Wisdom Council.

Anne Ehrlich – Population Biologist. Married to Paul Ehrlich with whom she has authored many books on human population control. Also a former director of Friends of the Earth and the Sierra Club, and a member of the Malthusian anti-humanist movement.

Hassan bin Talal – President of the CoR, President of the Arab Thought Forum, founder of the World Future Council, recently named as the United Nations ‘Champion of the Earth’.

Sir Crispin Tickell – former British Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Permanent Representative on the Security Council, Chairman of the ‘Gaia Society’, Chairman of the Board of the Climate Institute, leading British climate change campaigner.

Kofi Annan – former Secretary General of the United Nations. Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

Javier Perez de Cuellar – former Secretary General of the United Nations.

Robert Muller – former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, founder and Chancellor of the UN University of Peace.

Father Berry Thomas – Catholic Priest who is one of the leading proponents of deep ecology, ecospirituality, global consciousness and all around mystic moonbat.

David Rockefeller – CoR executive member, former Chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank, founder of the Trilateral Commission, executive member of the World Economic Forum, donated land on which the United Nations stands, godfather of global governance initiative.

Stephen Schneider – Stanford Professor of Biology and Global Change. Professor Schneider was among the earliest and most vocal proponents of man-made global warming and a lead author of many since discredited IPCC reports.

Bill Clinton – former President of the United States, founder of the Clinton Global Initiativeand who signed Kyoto (but congress rejected it).

Jimmy Carter – former President of the United States,

Bill Gates – founder of Microsoft, philanthropist, global depopulationist

Garret Hardin – Professor of Human Ecology. Originator of the ‘Global Commons’ concept. Has authored many controversial papers on human overpopulation and eugenics.

And of Course our current PM’s father Pierre Elliot Trudeau who started a branch of CoR in Canada (CACoR) which was instrumental in the Kyoto protocol in placing valuation on CO2 for trading.

This is the CoR which begat Climate change racketeering, post-nationalism, Agenda 21 and other schemes to remove national sovereignty over resources and personal property rights.

Scratch a CoR member and there is a global depopulation misanthrope inside.

Human scum.

Yep.. exactly. There is a Prof of Marxism and Indigenous Studies at UBC who wrote a book which clearly states that he wants people angry… so angry that a revolution is started. He elaborated that facts are not important nor the vehicle that drives the anger… if it is inflated lies about feminism, environmentalism, racism, colonialism or whatever, he doesn’t care… according to him, any hot-button that gets people angry enough to get of their sofa into activism is fair game. Yes, this is the ideological raping that university student face and sometime succumb to … imagine, all that money paid to have one’s life ruined (rachel corrie for example).
