Maurice Strong - Father of "Climate Change"?
"...the man who did very nicely by costing everyone else dearly."
Quadrant.org: Maurice Strong, Climate Crook (12/15)
Read the rest and note the part where Strong came right out and bragged that he was “a socialist in ideology, a capitalist in methodology”.
As cock of the walk, he couldn't resist crowing about his prowess in the manipulation department. Everything he said publicly, he capitalized on privately. For instance, he said people ate too much meat (cattle produce methane, reportedly bad for the environment), so he bought a cattle company to reap the profits of that particular sin -- and get this -- from a Khashoggi no less, a Saudi arms dealer and dear uncle of Jamal Khashoggi whose allegedly dead body is supposedly unfindable, although Turkish police have posited a location).
There are a number of theories about the deeper meaning of The Wizard of Oz, and Wikipedia does a decent job of presenting them.
Under "Social Groups", from Historian Quentin Taylor:
As suggested in the scene where Dorothy endows Scarecrow with a diploma, it wasn't lack of intelligence on the part of the farmers, but of artifice, the main ingredient in manipulation of the public by people endowed with credentials.
William Jennings Bryan was a sort of everyman, it seems. One example might be this:
An additional allegory, and most poignant, to me at least, is contained in a direct quote from the King of the Flying Monkeys, thought to represent the indigenous peoples of the Americas:
In the movie, those flying monkeys were forced to do the bidding of the Wicked Witch of the West, and some watchers found that a very scary part of the film. But it seems that our real aboriginal peoples are paying the price of trying not to rock the boat too much; internalizing their anger to the point that they sometimes do damage to themselves. Not everyone, native or otherwise, is as strong, self-disciplined and courageous as the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, who plans to run again in the upcoming election.
For myself, however, it will be important to learn where she stands on "climate change". The Liberals are already playing up that issue as a distraction from the SNC-Lavalin controversy.
Which brings us to Mr. Oz himself, who was the worst kind of fraud.
Is it gullibility or opportunism that motivates Canada's PM to subscribe to the carbon theory of "climate change"? Is it a tactic passed down through the Liberal Party to ingratiate itself with the goals of big business? Silly question?
After all, who stands to gain if the whole theory is a cynical ploy, a fraud perpetrated on the very middle class the PM keeps insisting he strongly supports, though some may not exactly feel the love? Does he imagine that the move toward enforced electric vehicles is brilliant on all counts: creating jobs, enriching his already rich friends and ... da-da, da-da ... addressing "climate change"? You bet he does. And he owes it all to Maurice Strong, whom he publicly described as that "pioneer of sustainable development who left our country and our world a better place".
"ZEV", a whole new acronym for us to cram into a brainload of them: Zero Emission Vehicles.
Misleading, of course, because emitting will happen each and every time one of them is plugged in for charging -- though reportedly about half as much as gasoline-powered vehicles. So, I guess that means the climate will be half-changed. (Short-changed?)
All that's needed is to turn electric vehicles into a status symbol, while praising buyers for saving the environment, and you've got them by the unowhuts.
Maurice Strong will be salivating in his grave.
But ... and there's always a but ... wouldn't it be better to up-sell the public on electric trains and local and long-distance electric buses? (Those babies have the potential to make a few moguls very rich.) And encourage people to walk, ride bikes, or at least go back to car pooling?
Whatever happened to car pooling? I was on a bus not long ago that arrived on the outskirts of Toronto around lunch time, and we were close to an hour late reaching the bus terminal due to a stand-still traffic jam of vehicles, as far as the eye could see, containing only one person each!
About those indigenous peoples (possibly) portrayed in The Wizard of Oz; Trudeau says he cares deeply about them as well. In fact, he has promised that if he is re-elected he just might finally get them some clean drinking water.
YYC: Stuff I Find Hard to Fathom
The Liberal government says it's aiming to have finally lifted all long-term water advisories by March 2021 -- and it will have taken them only 154 years!
