Trillions of tax dollars WASTED. New video answers the question: Is climate change our biggest problem?

StaffRebel Columnist

A new video by Prager U has taken on the claim of climate change being our greatest problem.

The video description states, “Are the wildfires, droughts and hurricanes we see on the news an omen of even worse things to come? The United Nations and many political leaders think so and want to spend trillions of tax dollars to reverse the warming trend. Are they right? Will the enormous cost justify the gain? Economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, explains the key issues and reaches some sobering conclusions."

Bjorn Lomborg goes on to explain better solutions to climate change such as investing in proper infrastructure and how “if the main effort to cut emissions is through subsidies for chic renewables such as wind and solar, virtually no good will be achieved at a very high cost.”

Give this video a watch.

When you said carbon dioxide causes global warming you didn’t provide one of your easy to understand graphs showing the relationship between carbon dioxide and global temperature. That’s when you blew your credibility, because empirical, historical data shows that there is no correlation between climate and carbon dioxide and that’s why you didn’t produce a graph. Quit spreading fear about carbon dioxide.

Peter – not only that, but warming is expected to foster a surge in farming and other plant life, and the additional plants will NEED the additional CO2 for photosynthesis.

Experts like Bjorn Lomborg and Ross McKitrick are correct; however no one gets to hear what they say except us realists. I wish we could tie up airheads like Obama and Trudeau and make them listen to this common sense.

He’s right, and he’s wrong. The fear mongering is rampant and wide spread. But CO2 is plant food, and is not driving any change on this planets climate what so ever.

I agree with most of the video, just not the part that links Carbon Dioxide (Plant Food) with global warming.

I agree that the greatest threat western democracies face today is a leadership vacuum and the lack of ethical conduct in government administration. We are becoming as corrupt as the Banana republics we joked about and the intellectual make up of our political administration has the collective IQ of a turnip.

Government has become an industry and has become the largest corporate monopoly in our economy – they act in character of the grasping, bullying, amoral corporate behemoth.

In a way it is our biggest problem with the kind of money being spent, the bs, the huge money being made (Al gore went from being rich to being filthy rich) Those american foundation pouring their money into our country to promote numb..ts and the socialist party of canada. Political interference.

Where is this guy coming from? Global Warming is a myth, created by the grubby Marxist that run the UN. The average temperature of this planet has not changed for nearly two decades. This video was likely put out by the UN.
The biggest danger that Canada faces is Justin Trudeau. There is a lot of money to be made from Global Warming, right Justin, Wynne and Notley?

That is why it is called RE-search. They just keep doing it over and over with the same results, then ask for more money knowing they will get the same results

Not much different than the trillions in cancer funding funneled to research to continue to come up with nothing. Pure and simple this is wealth distribution to fund tyrants, corruption and an unelected self appointed body of dictators known as the UN. These despots won’t be done until they have all your wealth. Real scientists don’t stand in front of cameras and spout their ideas they’re too busy working. The ones in front of the camera are activists looking for the next feeding at the public trough. Trillions will be spent but not on science but on spending the next budget fast enough to qualify for the next grant. Not much different than medical grants. Big fancy galas to spend what remains in the grant and qualify for more funding. All BS from academics that live at the public trough.

The problem with Bjorn Lomborgs’ video is that it makes too much common sense. Actually, it means that the money would go towards existing local construction companies to build the levies, larger drainage sewers, etc. rather than go in green energy subsidies dedicated to greedy “climate scientists” to research and build the green technologies. It is all a scam. They don’t want to solve the real problem with real solutions, they want to line their pockets with the tax payer money.
