Brian Sussman, at one time a successful television meteorologist, now works to counteract popular myths and mis-information about the world’s climate. He is the author of the book, “Climategate”, and has just released a new title, “Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda Will Dismantle America”
Not only can the “politically-correct” story about the environment can be shown to be false, but this false information is being used to increase governmental regulation of society of individuals.
In fact, socialist planners have long seen climate change as a tool to gain control of free societies and move them into socialism. The earliest record of this is from 1883 when it was used to warn about “Global Cooling”.
In recent years regulations have done far more than regulate pollution, or carbon emissions, etc. They have limited severely the use of private property, with the ultimate goal of eliminating private property altogether.
This is taking place even though the Declaration of Independence states that our rights come from God, and are to be protected by the government acting on behalf of the people. Socialists and Communists of all stripes believe that “rights” are granted by the government, and can be taken away by the government, for the “common good”.
Large areas of land in the United States have now been placed off-limits for development of any kind, or even the presence of human beings. Despite massive deposits of energy resources, we cannot access them. So we remain energy dependent on nations that hate us.
Long range plans for areas like California envision a ban on motorized vehicles except for mass transit, the end of ranches, with the land being restored to its “pristine” natural state.
