In case you thought that all those climate change warriors like Elizabeth Warren use only battery-powered mini-cars and bicycles as a means of transportation, think again.
Early afternoon on Feb 04, 2020, Sen. Warren, an advocate of drastic changes in America’s consumption of energy and use of fossil fuels, was spotted stepping off a private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.
There’s nothing wrong with using high-end transportation services. If I had cash, I’d fly a private jet to pick up Moo Shu Pork from my local Chinese eatery.
What bothers me is that climate change preacher like Warren, who wants to turn our lives upside down to save the environment, doesn’t think much about making adjustments to her own behavior to make it more environment-friendly. In fact, she has no problem with placing herself outside of her own ideology.
Elizabeth Warren plays hide and seek game.

What’s funny about this situation is that Sen. Warren knows very well that her lifestyle doesn’t fit well with the rules and regulations she wants to force on the rest of us. Just look at her reaction when she realizes she’s being filmed. It’s priceless.
Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind farms to save the climate. But what about when those technologies destroy the environment? In this provocative talk, energy expert, Michael Shellenberger explains why solar and wind farms are not the best method of energy production, and describes an alternative path to saving both the climate and the natural environment — nuclear energy.
(It was independently organized by a local community.)
Michael Shellenberger is a Time Magazine Hero of the Environment (in 2008 with Ted Nordhaus) and President of Environmental Progress — a research and policy organization. A lifelong environmentalist, Michael changed his mind about atomic energy and has helped save enough nuclear reactors to prevent an increase in carbon emissions equivalent to adding more than 24 million cars to the road.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
After meeting with Greta Thunberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger has made eco-friendly upgrades to his $100,000 Pinzgauer. The 6X6 military vehicle has been fixed up to include a low-displacement engine from S-Tec, which replaced the diesel guzzling previous one.
S-TEC — the company hired to modify the vehicle — increased the rated power to 180HP / 132KW (from standard 112 HP / 82KW) but also “dramatically reduced the fuel consumption and the environmental impact” compared to the original vehicle. (They don’t supply any numbers if it comes to a dramatic reduction in fuel consumption and the environmental impact.)
Arnold has a new hero.
Greta Thunberg — the Joan of Arc of the environmentalism.
Arnold Schwarzenegger said:
It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes Greta Thunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together, and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!
And then he jumped into his upgraded 6X6 Pinzgauer and drove off into the sunset.
The dirty secret.
Does Greta know what Arnie drives?
I wonder if Mr. Schwarzenegger invited Greta to his garage. The man likes to drive the worst gas-guzzling vehicles in the world — just a few of the examples for you.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (13 city/19 highway)
Mercedes-Benz Unimog U1300 SE (12 MPG Diesel)
Porsche 911 Turbo (17 city / 24 highway)
Hummer H1 (multiple — ≈10 mpg)
Ex-Military Dodge M37 (6 mpg)
Bentley Continental GTC (15-18 mpg)
Bugatti Veyron (10 mpg)
M47 Patton Tank (2-2.5 mpg). He uses it once in a while to support his charity by crushing cars he doesn’t like.
And what the hell is this?
Arnold Schwarzenegger is leaving Cafe Roma in Beverly Hills, California, on May 6, 2016. The vehicle he was driving was so large that it was unable to park in a regular parking spot.
So, the question is:
Is Arnold going (after the) green?
I don’t think the Terminator is going to stop driving “real” cars any time soon, but it looks like he is getting more and more interested in “green technologies.” He decided to invest some of his time and possibly money into an Austrian start-up Kreisel Electric GmbH — battery development company based in the town of Rainbach im Mühlkreis — the company which converted two of his gas-guzzlers into electric vehicles.
Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen (link). 483 horsepower (360 kilowatts), and the 80-kilowatt-hour battery provides nearly 186 miles (300 kilometers) of driving range.
Hummer H1 (link) 483 horsepower (360 kilowatts), and the 100-kilowatt-hour battery provides nearly 186 miles (300 kilometers) of driving range.
It took a lot of green to make those two vehicles green. Including donor cars, the cost reached close to a million dollars each. These are prototypes, and they don’t come cheap.
Has Arnold become a full-fledged environmentalist? No, he did not. Schwarzenegger is a businessman, and whatever he does, he does it because he sees a business opportunity.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and his nephew Patrick Knapp-Schwarzenegger are listed as Angel Investors and According to PR Newswire Los Angeles-based entrepreneur and attorney Patrick Knapp-Schwarzenegger leads a group of partners that owns a stake in Kreisel Electric.
Arnold promotes Kreisel Electric not because he wants to save the planet (maybe just a little) but because he invested in that company.
It is perfectly O.K. to make money.
Just don’t try to sell a BS in the process.
And that’s why I’m a crusader, an environmental crusader around the world to make sure we stop this madness of using fossil fuels and that we switch to renewables or electric or hydrogen cars and new technology but this government doesn’t do anything about it.
We all want to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and eat clean food. Anyone who comes up with new “clean technology” is alright with me. Anyone who supports that new technology by promoting it or financing it with an expectation to profit from it is okay with me. But, I don’t like it when people suggest that they do it to save my sorry ass because they worry about mine and my kid’s future. Because I don’t buy it.
In an attempt to mock the Green New Deal (and the rest of climate change mumbo-jumbo) promoted by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, LaRouchePAC planted one of its activists at AOC’s Town Hall meeting.
Even if we were to bomb Russia, we still have too many people. Too much pollution. So we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem. Just stopping having babies is not enough. We need to eat the babies.
Using ridicule as a way of fighting political opposition isn’t new. People have used ridicule and satire as a powerful weapon to cut their enemies down to size since — oh well — since there ware enemies in need to be cut down to size.
Let’s borrow a couple of thoughts from leading progressive thinkers…,
The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it? This is the war — this is our World War II.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
(Before she realized that no one with the social intelligence above that of a sea sponge was going to take her seriously.)
People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.
Greta Thunberg (Activist)
(Before she realized that she should be back in school on the other side of the ocean instead reading to a bunch of people in UN.)
Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh? I feel somewhat hesitant but to not appear overly conservative…I’d have to say….I’d be open to at least tasting it
Prof. Magnus Soderlund
(Before he realized that that suggestion of having just recently deceased member of immediate family for lunch, is not going to sit well with the most of the civilized population.)
…and using exaggeration, elevate them to the next, satirical, level of insanity.
(NOTE: I don’t think there’s any need for exaggeration in case of this Soderlund guy. Hi’s already way up there.)
Twelve years? That’s way too long. Let’s cut it down to just a few months. We are not even going to survive until Christmas. It won’t matter anyway, because by that time, the North Pole will melt, and beloved Santa and the rest of his crew will die miserable deaths as a result of drowning in crystal clear, icy water — assuring that way proper nutrition for other North Pole residents, who are better swimmers. (Sorry, no Christmas presents for you.)
What about all those people dropping like flies because of our fragile ecosystems are collapsing?
Well, let’s be practical and listen to the advice of Prof. Soderlund. We should take those who are no longer contributing to our society (individuals killed by collapsing ecosystems), and use their remains to replace traditional meat products. By doing so, we’ll be able to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions by forcing all those evil methane-producing, farting cows into extinction without creating any food shortages in the process. (Passing gas will become a criminal offense.)
But wait! Why not push it a little further. (this is where LaRouchePAC satirical drama comes in.) There’s no need to wait for someone to die to be eligible to become part of our menu. Let’s go after our babies. Nothing, ladies and gentlemen, is going to prevent us from saving the planet!
Save the planet — eat the children!
(Over time, propagation will grow to be an occupation paid by the food industry.)
This approach will take care of two problems: over-population and assurance of proper, high-quality nutrition. Fewer kids — No replacement for old geezers. Fewer humans to feed. More food for the rest of us. Higher food quality — Veal is better than beef.
Is satirical sketch presented by the LaRouchePAC member at the AOC’s Town Hall meeting , that much off from reality? Progressives are pushing the idea of abortion after birth already.
Was that insane? Of course, it was! But…
Some times just explaining why your way of life is superior to the way the opposition wants everybody to live by, is not enough. On occasion, there’s an unavoidable need for ridiculing the ideas or solutions to problems proposed by those on the opposite end of the ideological spectrum to make people listen to your arguments.
Shocking the people who are too busy, too tired, or just simply too ignorant to care about what is happening around them and forcing them back into paying attention, ensures that all of us, and not only those in power, are influencing the way our country is governed.
The headline like:
THEY WANT TO EAT BABIES!!!,
works much better than:
The controversy around the new abortion bill explained.
Google invited the smartest and the brightest members of the world of science to its Climate Change Summit in Sicily. The guest list includes top geologist Dr. Leonardo DiCaprio, renown physicist Prof. Orlando Bloom, and his assistant Dr. Katy Perry, also Dr. Bradley Cooper showed up (I think, he is a dentist), and many, many others.
So, the world’s power brokers have a “secretive” climate change summit in Sicily.
As stated by extremely well informed unnamed sources, the summit attendees are going to work very hard to find new ways to shame the rest of us into reducing our already tiny carbon footprint, so they, the rich and famous, can keep their insane standard of living (including all flying and sailing toys they love so much) and feel good about it.
The level of disconnection from reality, which all those gods and goddesses living at the top of Mount Olympus represent, is impossible to comprehend for rest of us, living down here in the ordinary world.
Mega-yachts, over 100 private jets, choppers and a bunch of Maserati SUVs used to bring over 200 – 300 nature-loving guests to Google Camp and to keep them mobile when being there, created a bigger carbon footprint than a small volcano.
Don’t worry. We are not going to die. Since the 1970s we went thru:
and now we are in the middle of
global climate change
No big deal, We’ve beaten the mother nature twice, we can do it again.
Not everybody is as death-serious as Google is.
These guys have lots of fun when talking about climate change, and they make much more sense then any of Google’s “scientists” will ever do.
End of Intermission
It’s interesting how all those showbiz superstars, business moguls, and ultra-rich who own multiple cars, huge houses, private planes, yachts, and many other polluting toys, can look at the people who buy products or services from them (and in effect, made them rich), and with a straight face scold them for not caring for the environment as much as they should.
