I am an energy miser and have been for years. I even built an electric bike that gets over 750 mpg equivalent and rode it over 8000 miles to deflect wear from my car and save gas money. I ride a motorcycle that gets 80mpg to work. I pick up trash as I walk along the sidewalk and in parking lots. I take cold showers when possible. So don’t tell me I don’t care about the environment.
That said, if CO2 levels are indeed rising, it’s because the planet has been deforested to benefit the global financial elite. I am not talking about rich people, celebrities, sports stars, etc. I am talking about the controllers of world economies. They are the people whose families and associates made their money primarily before and during the industrial revolution.
If they were so concerned about CO2, they would be taking the responsibility themselves by feverishly pushing new/free energy technology like solar, small scale wind turbines (1-2kW) for home installation, battery technology, thorium powered cars/generators, Tesla technology, etc.
That’s how we know it’s a scam. Instead, they blame it on us for our consumption patterns which they themselves have forced upon us through their social engineering/marketing efforts. Now, they want us to accept the blame for their mistakes. They want us to cut the consumption patterns that they themselves led us into.
Now, they have contracted the credit markets, and foreclosed on millions of homes and commercial real estate properties. The average age of a car now in the US is 11.4 years (as of 2013), up from 9.8 in 2002. More and more people are driving older and older cars because they a) can’t afford them or b) know the economy is a card castle and don’t want to borrow any money to pay for them.
And the oligarchs are blaming us for destroying the environment and they are still consolidating wealth. It seems that the system is set up to benefit them, no matter whether the economy is booming or busting, doesn’t it?
What most people don’t even consider is that they believe that a global neo-feudalistic model where banks, corporations and governments own everything is the way to go. They will force humanity through social and economic engineering into pack-em-stack-em living quarters to reduce our energy consumption, force us to use public transit, etc. while they continue to fly all over the world and drive Bentleys and Aston Martins. In 20 years, nobody will even dream of one day owning their own home or car, or even eating meat. This is their plan.
As I am learning, it’s far too late to get prepared for the next wave of what they are trying to do. A person doing this will not be able to survive alone in the “New World Order” that they have created. If the existing power structure is able to keep their game moving forward without an all out global revolution, we are going to need relationships with friends and people in the community and all across the country that are based on trust and solidarity. It’s time to be a light in our communities. It’s time to build our networks and find out who we can really trust. Things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get any better. But if we can overlook our differences and band together in the name of survival, God and humanity, we will win in the end.
I am going to leave you with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi. “When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it–always.”
