One of the early purposes of climate alarmism was to stimulate the reduction of the worldwide population over an extended period, under the ultimate control of a single worldwide government. It is predicated on the fictitious notion of man-produced climate change.
The plan was and perhaps still is to use climate change as a socially accepted reason to force the abandonment of the cheap, abundant energy produced by fossil fuel and nuclear generation.
To maintain a population of over 7.5 billion human beings requires massive amounts of food and energy. Energy is the key. It takes energy to raise, harvest, produce and transport food. And it takes still more energy to provide for man’s comfort and mobility.
Reducing the amount of available energy by a significant factor assures that sustainable conditions are only available for a similarly reduced population. Such conditions are ripe for tyrannical socialistic control through a unified worldwide government.
The patently false notion of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and climate change was first adopted by the Club of Rome in its efforts to promote the need for population reduction. Its inauguratory meeting was held in 1968 at David Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy. The notion of AGW and climate change was based on inaccurate understandings of the 19th Century works of John Tyndall, “Heat A Mode of Motion” and Svante Arrhenius, “Worlds in the Making.”
The plan was to stress the need for restricted availability of energy under the guidance of a united worldwide government. Lower available energy would lead to much lower population levels over several hundred years.
On October 10, 1972, J.S. Sawyer, the head of research at the UK Meteorological Office, wrote a four-page paper published in Nature summarizing what was known at the time about potential temperature changes, and predicting warming of about 0.6℃ by the end of the 20th century.
The movement took root in October 1975 when Dr. Margaret Mead, president of AAAS, aided by associates Paul Ehrlich (the author of “The Population Bomb”),
