Cultural Amnesia and Losing Earth



On August 1st, The New York Times published a thirty-one-thousand-word propaganda piece called “Losing Earth,” which in thirty-one-thousand words — almost the length of my latest book — did not manage to mention nuclear energy except once in passing. They also somehow managed to ignore the sheer amount of fossil fuels and rare-earth minerals — in short, industry — required to create and maintain “renewables.” They did, however, unwittingly “deal a horrible blow to the fringe activists” (unquote) who don’t understand production or even the most basic economics, and this blow has left activists everywhere scurrying to their soapboxes.

“The idea that energy companies ‘knew everything there was to know about climate change,’ as Bill McKibben likes to say, and that the rest of us didn’t know about it until James Hansen testified before Congress in 1988, ‘is one of the worst examples we have of the cultural amnesia of this country and especially around this issue,’ Nathaniel Rich [the author of the New York Times article] told NewsHour.”

Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, who (like me) long ago left the movement because of an utter and absolute disenchantment with its innumerable, unignorable lies — i.e. Noble Cause Corruption — as well as its patently propagandistic and unscientific methodology, recently wrote a must-read article titled Twelve Invisible Eco-Catastrophes and Threats of Doom That are Actually Fake. Among them:

Coral reefs around the world are dying and Ocean “Acidification” will kill all the coral reefs and shellfish in the world, and, of course, here is a “sea of plastic” the size of Texas in the North Pacific Gyre north of Hawaii.

For this last one, he posted this proven fake photo — laughably fake — which, however, eco-warriors and social justice warriors the wide world over are still posting to weariness, without, of course, daring to think for themselves:
