Biden's World War E.---The Great Disconnect

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF


Two days after the President's State of the Union address, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen hosted a "best practices roundtable" to talk about "climate change."

Yellen's speech didn't even acknowledge that Russia had attacked Ukraine on February 24.

Instead, at a March 3 event, she said: "Our entire Department---our entire administration---knows how vital your partnership is in the fight against climate change."

President Biden claims to be " inflicting pain on Russia" while in reality, he is paying Putin nearly $700 million a month for his oil, while he's killing our own vast oil resources for his "greater cause."

Be informed, not misled.

James Pinkerton writes of Biden's comments, "That was nice to hear, but the real test is not words, but deeds. And as for deeds, it seems that the Biden administration is operating on a kind of green autopilot, still acting as though the Russian invasion hasn’t happened—and so it’s not doing much. Overall, the Biden plan is still "think green", with little true regard for the changed world situation."

"Yet no world event seems to penetrate the smug complacency---mixed with a kind of smug urgency---of the greens," he writes. Continuing, he says, "Why is this? Because they've built themselves their own little dollhouse, giving a free rein to their fantasies. In that green playground, Mr. Bad News is not welcome."

He says: 

For the last three decades, as the issue morphed from “global warming” to the more catch-all “climate change,” the motley crew of greens has become well-funded and rich. They’ve become Big Green.

And, along the way, Big Green has created its own parallel world—simultaneously expensive and childish—which weirdly mimics venerable diplomatic and security institutions. So whereas once the world watched summits where, say, wars were ended, these days, Big Green has its own “high stakes” summits, such as COP (for Conference of the Parties) 26, which self-aggrandizingly bills itself as “the supreme decision-making body” of the United Nations’ campaign against climate change. (The “26,” by the way, indicates that last year’s Glasgow summit was the 26th such annual meeting, which shows that this has been a long-playing gravy train for conference-goers.)

I agree. But the "green movement" has become more than a "dollhouse" or "playland"---I think it has become a new-age type of religion, with its theology based on the worship of "Mother Earth."

Religious fervor with indulgences.   

Astonishingly, total annual expenditures for climate-change research and mitigation amount to $632 billion. For that kind of money, it’s no surprise that people everywhere want in. For instance, as Breitbart News reported last year, Richard Moore, the head of MI6, Britain’s top intelligence agency, has pledged to use MI6 resources to spy on other countries to verify their compliance with climate-change pledges. Such “green spying” is needed, Moore said, to address the “climate emergency . . . the foremost international foreign policy agenda item for this country and for the planet.”

Got that? So the threat from Russia, China, ISIS, and other genuine malefactors has been downgraded, and green whimsy has been upgraded. But meanwhile, more green money for Moore, as he keeps a watchful eye on those dreaded carbon dioxide molecules.

Interestingly, even with a war raging and the Russians spewing more CO2 than ever, the green movement carries on, telling themselves and each other that their work is just as important as--maybe even more important than anything happening in the world, including in Ukraine.

The Green movement has convinced themselves that they are fighting an epic---religious war, a good war, a moral war like World War II. Only this time the enemy isn't Hitler, it's CO2. They don't worry about an atomic World War III, they worry about World War E---"E" for "Environment"---"E" for "Existential" threat.

On March 2, as the Russian invasion grew even more threatening with Putin issuing a nuclear alert, Peter Beinart tweeted that nobody should be "any less cavalier about nuclear annihilation than climate annihilation."

In that mental state, where the emissions from auto tailpipes are just as dangerous as an A-Bomb--- it's little wonder that the Biden Administration has not blinked on climate change being America's most existential threat. 

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), himself a veteran, tweeted, "At $112 per barrel, the United States is sending $22.4 M to fund Putin's war machine today. It's time for Biden to sanction Russia's oil."

Obviously, the idea of Biden paying Putin nearly $700 million per month is a bad idea, but the money continues to flow because to those who think they're fighting World War E, this blood money is a mere detail: the real issue is the sea level in the year 2100.

However, the green theology and dogma are unraveling.

The other day---March 4, Elon Musk, who has made much of his fortune on Tesla cars and batteries, tweeted this: "Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately. Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures."

Environmentalism: The government-sponsored religion.

Anyone who has studied the global environmental movement has no doubt heard the term "Gaia".  Gaia is a revival of Paganism that rejects Christianity, considers Christianity its biggest enemy, and views the Christian faith as its only obstacle to a global religion centered on Gaia worship and the uniting of all life forms around the goddess of "Mother Earth".

It's a demonic mixture of science, paganism, eastern mysticism, and feminism that has made this pagan cult a growing challenge to the teaching of biblical Christianity. 

Gaia worship is at the heart of our government's environmental policies. The Endangered Species Act, The United Nation's Biodiversity Treaty, and the President's Council on Sustainable Development are all offspring of the Gaia hypothesis of saving "Mother Earth".  This religious movement, with cult-like qualities, is being promoted by leading figures and organizations such as former Vice President Al Gore, the United Nations and its various NGOs. And certainly President Biden and his administration. 

You may recall Gore's book, "Earth in the Balance," claims the deity of Earth. And blames the falling away from this pagan god on the environmentally unfriendly followers of Jesus Christ. The United Nations has been extremely successful in infusing the "Green Religion" into an international governmental body. 

Gore wrote: 

"The richness and diversity of our religious tradition throughout history is a spiritual resource long ignored by people of faith, who are often afraid to open their minds to teachings first offered outside their own systems of belief. But the emergence of a civilization in which knowledge moves freely and almost instantaneously through the world has spurred a renewed investigation of the wisdom distilled by all faiths. This pan-religious perspective may prove especially important where our global civilization's responsibility for the earth is concerned" (pp. 258-259).

Now the United States has sold the "green gospel" to Europe. 

The cult of Gaia is basically a rehashed, modernized version of the paganism condemned by God in the Bible. Although it has a new face it is the same ancient paganism. There have been other religious movements that have presented similar revelations about the deity of a living earth, but Gaia has succeeded in uniting the environmental movement, the new age movement, Eastern religions, and even some leaders of Christian denominations behind a bastardized version of paganism in ways the others weren't able to do.

The lie. 

Paul spoke to this in Romans, chapter one: 

"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.  Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator - who is forever praised. Amen."
