The Great Global Warming Scam Began with the Nazis…

If you really want to understand the great global warming scam you must listen to my podcast this week with Rupert Darwall.

In his new book Green Tyranny, Darwall tells a story so extraordinary and implausible that it’s no wonder most of the mainstream media has been too scared to touch it.

The bottom line: it all started with the Nazis.

Yes, I know. It sounds so click-baity, doesn’t it?

That’ll be why even those journals and writers that have reviewed the book favorably have tended to steer clear of the key chapter in Darwall’s book. The one mischievously titled ‘Europe’s First Greens’.

Europe’s First Greens were, of course, the Nazis.

The documentary evidence provided by Darwall is irrefutable, for this is a considered, well-researched and scholarly work, not a potboiler.

What Darwall demonstrates is that the ideology driving the current climate scare originated in Hitler’s Germany.

Angela Merkel’s Energiewende, the brainwashing of your kids in school with green propaganda, the Climate Industrial Complex, the blackouts in South Australia, Solyndra, Obama promising that electricity prices would “necessarily skyrocket”, the bat-chomping bird-slicing eco-crucifixes destroying a skyline near you, the real reason Trump just had to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord – it’s all basically the fault of the Nazis.

That’s because Nazis – though similar in so many ways to their fellow totalitarians the Communists – had at least one major point of difference with Marxist ideology: they feared and loathed industrial progress and they worshipped nature.

Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf:

When man attempts to rebel against the iron logic of Nature, he comes into struggle with the principles to which he himself owes his existence as a man.

The Fuhrer, in other words, was as big a Gaia worshipper as even Naomi Klein or Emma Thompson or Leonardo di Caprio.

As Hitler thought, so did the Nazi intelligentsia. Many of them were vegetarians and, like Rudolf Hess and Agriculture Minister Walter Darre were big fans of organic farming. The party was fiercely anti-smoking (even though the Germans continued to smoke fanatically so long as tobacco was available). They were also massively into “renewable” energy, especially wind, tidal power and hydroelectric.

Hitler said in a dinner party conversation in 1941:

“We shall have to use every method of encouraging whatever might ensure us the gain of a single kilowatt…Coal will disappear one day.”

He then speculated on renewable solutions to this ‘peak coal’ problem:

“The future belongs, surely, to water – to the wind and the tides.”

(This isn’t mentioned in the book but Hitler’s favorite SS commando – Otto Skorzeny – who miraculously survived the war and retired to live in Spain spent his later years campaigning on behalf of the wind industry.)

Darwall doesn’t mince his words:

The Nazis’ profound hostility to capitalism and their identification with nature-politics led them to advocate green policies half a century before any other political party. As an approximation, subtract Nazi race-hate, militarism and desire for world conquest and Nazi ideology ends up looking not dissimilar to today’s environmental movement.

What Darwall goes on to demonstrate is how this mindset, unabated by the defeat of Nazi Germany, continued to dominate European political thought. This was especially so in the two countries most responsible for promulgating the climate change scare: Sweden and Germany.

In Germany, the Nazis’ green ideology became linked inextricably with that of the Peace movement – which, with a certain irony, was largely sponsored by the Soviet Union.

Sweden, meanwhile, did most to get the global warming scare up and running in the early days. Bert Bolin, the first chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was a Swede.

You’ll have to read Darwall’s book for the full, rather complicated story. By the end you’ll have an answer to perhaps the most puzzling of the many questions about the global warming industry: why, given the scientific evidence is so flimsy, does it carry on pushing its cause so fervently?

The answer is simple: because “global warming” is not about “the science” and never was about “the science.”

Like the “acid rain” scare and the “nuclear winter” scare, the man-made global warming scare is a fake news story designed to push a political and economic agenda.

At the bottom of that agenda is the same superstitious fear the Nazis had: that industrial progress is morally wrong because it is against Nature.

Hence the greenies’ obsession with renewables. Despite all the evidence that renewables do at least as much environmental damage as fossil fuels, only much more expensively, and without making any meaningful difference to “climate change” the green ideology persists in pretending that renewables are the “clean” “natural” alternative to “dirty” fossil fuels.

It’s about emotion not logic; about the narrative, not reality.

For decades we’ve been gulled by a compliant (and invariably ignorant) media into believing that the global warming scare is about scientists doing clever sciencey stuff and reaching important conclusions which the world can only ignore at its peril.

But actually, all along, the tail has been wagging the dog.

The scientists are a virtual irrelevance in this story: merely the useful idiots of a political agenda.

That agenda is part religion – a kind of pagan nature worship expressed through opposition to Western-industrialized civilization and the embrace of retrograde technologies like wind power.

And it’s part leftist politics and economics: a way by which Europe can destroy and overtake the United States’ economic hegemony by neutralizing one of its greatest competitive advantages – the abundance of fossil fuels which have now made it the world’s number one energy superpower.

Donald Trump probably hasn’t a clue about the intellectual and ideological undercurrents which created the great global warming scare. But he’s a businessman and saw what was happening through gut instinct.

Global warming is a scam – the biggest the world has ever seen.

Trump, for one, didn’t fall for it.

    Boils right down to the facts that this Green Movement is a grab for power by a back to nature wackos who would reduce us to a life living in mud huts communing with Gaia and making that seasonal sacrifice just like the Pre-Comubus Native Americans did just like the Aztecs Myhans and Incan’s did

    Talk about Rabid Right Wingers DEMONIZING those that they disagree with !
    The NAZI’S originated Global Warming?
    REALLY ?
    Was this article written with a straight face?
    THE LITTLE ICE AGE should not have been the “LITTLE” ICE AGE.
    THE causes of ICE AGES are still occurring:
    Earth orbit is moving AWAY from the Sun.
    Earth axial tilt is AWAY from the Sun.
    .
    This Holocene inter glacial warm period, peaked in temperatures
    7000-8000 years ago. Temps. have been falling slowly since
    then…into our next GLACIATION (ice age).
    .
    IN THE MID 1700’s, temperatures STOPPED FALLING and started to rise. By 1799 those changes were so pronounced, Alexander von Humboldt in South America & Thomas Jefferson in North America both Postulated that human activities were causing threatening Climate Changes.
    .
    1824
    Fourier calculates that the Earth would be FAR colder if it lacked an atmosphere
    1859
    Tyndall discovers that some atmospheric gases block infrared radiation. He suggests that changes in the concentration of the gases could bring climate changes, global warming.
    1896
    Arrhenius publishes first calculation of global warming from human emissions of CO2.

    Chamberlin produces a model for global carbon exchange including feedbacks.
    I’m NOT CERTAIN I see HITLER’S LITTLE FINGERS AT WORK.
    HUMANS dumping huge amounts of TOXIC CHEMICALS & GASSES into the atmosphere…I understand.

      I agree that it is unlikely that the green movement is a descendant of the Nazi’s. A plausible theory is that some of the political culture left over from the Nazi’s made it into the green movement. This movement certainly has many Nazi characteristics including persecution of those who disagree with it, indoctrination of children, and if a lie is told loud enough and often enough it becomes the truth.

      You say that the earth should be cooling. The fact is over a long period of time this has happened. The host years in the last hundred years are cooler than 85% of the years in the past 10,000 years.

      The article is wrong about the Nazi’s hating industry. They worked very well with the industrialist. The result was a war machine that challenged the world.

        War is energy intensive, every single kilowatt was valuable. When oil was scarce, the Nazi’s made synthetic aviation gasoline from coal. Not exactly the kind of alternative energy the Greens would endorse.

        I too fail to see a Nazi connection. Sorry, I just won’t take that bait.

        OTOH, it’s no coincidence that the prescriptions to solve the dire crisis of climate change read just like 100-year wish list of world Socialism. Failed socialist leaders conveniently morphed into the Green Movement as their countries collapsed around them. Now we’re supposed to accept these people have discovered the importance of environmentalism and have all the answers anew.

        “I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
        Take a bow for the new revolution
        Smile and grin at the change all around
        Pick up my guitar and play
        Just like yesterday
        Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
        We don’t get fooled again”
        -Pete Townshend

    Here is some trivia that some may find interesting (or perhaps boring.) The organized American nudist movement owes it existence to the Nazi’s. Of course people have been frolicking nude in the woods for generation but I’m talking about the organized nudists. Germany has a long history of being relaxed about modesty and around 1900 many health clubs were offing nude co-ed fitness classes. Many Germans didn’t like what the Nazi’s were doing so immigrated to America. Many of these immigrants started nudist clubs. How does this related to climate change. Many nudist would love it if the cliamte did actually did get warmer.
