In the late 1960s, Americans and Westerners were told that "overpopulation" was going to destroy the planet, so the objective was to cut back on family size.
In the 1970s, for a brief period we were warned that "global cooling" was being caused by burning of fossil fuels and that a new Ice Age was upon us.
That changed in the 1980s and 1990s to "global warming" as average temperatures inched upward.
Since then, the left altered the verbiage again and now "climate change" is our planet-ending danger. The answers are the same, though: Less technology (but only for us, not the elite globalist managers); smaller families, less consumption, and ceding our liberties to tyrants who want to exert iron-fisted control over the masses.
For 'proof,' we are told literally everything that happens on earth is due to human-caused climate change. We are told horror stories about having only a dozen or so years left 'to do something' about the issue or irreversible damage will have been done. We are told sea levels are rising; ice packs are melting; and the ocean is suffering.
But is any of this true? In a word, no. Literally none of it is true.
Here's the latest example of this climate change hoax, via the Climate Change Dispatch:
The annual data on coral cover for the Great Barrier Reef, produced by the Australian Institute of Marine Science, was released on Monday showing the amount of coral on the reef is at record high levels.
Record high, despite all the doom stories by our reef science and management institutions.
Like all other data on the reef, this shows it is in robust health. For example, coral growth rates have, if anything, increased over the past 100 years, and measurements of farm pesticides reaching the reef show levels so low that they cannot be detected with the most ultra-sensitive equipment.
All of this is fantastic news -- for the planet, for life on Earth, and for our future as a species (and all other species, for that matter).
"But somehow, our science organizations have convinced the world that the reef is on its last legs. How has this happened?" Climate Change Dispatch asked.
We know why, don't we? Because reporting fantastic news like this is anathema; most Western media have long since been infiltrated by left-wing climate hoaxers who believe they are 'doing their part for the cause' by ignoring such data. That, and anyone at any of the myriad of media organizations that perpetuate the left-wing climate lie would be fired in a quick second if they told the truth that the issue is a hoax.
Climate Change Dispatch offers a more standard explanation for the coral growth, though the outcome is the same.
"One reason is that occasionally colossal amounts of coral are killed, mostly by cyclones, but also by the crown of thorns starfish and bleaching," the outlet reports. "So the media, with its predilection for bad news, can be fed a regular diet of doom. Our scientists are always happy to oblige."
Climate science, in other words, is every bit as corrupt as the leftists pushing for tyrannical dominance over the most productive, technologically advanced nations on the planet. Because they have been brainwashed to hate their own countries and the people who make them work and cherish freedom.
"It is time to stop scaring the children with doom stories about the reef," Climate Change Dispatch concludes. That, and with climate lies about the remainder of the planet as well.
