Greta Thunberg, Pope Francis Attribute Pandemic to Climate Change

In these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, leaders are laser-focused on combating the contagion. But controversial figures like child climatologist Greta Thunberg and Pope Francis are using the crisis as a sounding board for their brand of climate politics. As unsettling as that may seem to an already anxious global community, the climate kid and Pope have fallen far short of delivering comfort.

“There is an expression in Spanish: ‘God always forgives, we forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives,’” Pope Francis reportedly said. “We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that a year and a half ago, a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods? I don’t know if it is nature’s revenge, but it is certainly nature’s response.”

The Pope has been an outspoken climate change advocate who appears to not temper his views with competing scientific facts. Scientists recently discovered that a vast rainforest was once present under the Antarctic ice caps 90 million years. This fact flies in the face of so-called “climate science” that claims polar caps are melting from purely human activity.

Despite fact-based evidence that the Earth has gone through numerous climate incarnations, end-of-days cultists continue to profess human activity will bring about the world’s end. Just a few years ago, Pope Francis was espousing precisely those views.

“Fires, earthquakes … nature is throwing a tantrum so that we will take care of her,” Pope Francis reportedly said. “Now is the time to abandon our dependence on fossil fuels and move, quickly and decisively, towards forms of clean energy and a sustainable and circular economy.”

The Pope has gone as far as to say that the COVID-19 plague is nature exacting “revenge” on humanity for not following left-wing recommendations about climate change.

Swedish climate kid, Thunberg, echoed similar sentiments as the Pope. The teen activist has gone as far as to claim she contracted the virus to gain attention.

“I was feeling tired, had shivers, a sore throat, and coughed. My dad experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever,” Thunberg reportedly posted on social media to her fans. “In Sweden, you cannot test yourself for COVID-19 unless you’re in need of emergency medical treatment. I have therefore not been tested for COVID-19, but it’s extremely likely that I’ve had it, given the combined symptoms and circumstances.”

Whether that claim is valid or not, it’s highly unlikely anyone will ever know. That’s because Greta has zero science to back up her claims. The entire charade echoes of irony, given climate data is rarely, if ever, is debated openly or honestly in scientific circles. Thunberg’s baseless claim, however, serves as a springboard to draw similarities to climate change narratives.

“But it also shows one thing: That once we are in a crisis, we can act to do something quickly, act fast,” Thunberg reportedly said. “Though it must be in a different way to how we have acted in this case, we can act fast and change our habits and treat a crisis like a crisis.”

In Washington, D.C., Democrats are hard at work trying to manipulate the health crisis to fund their climate change initiatives.

“If they want to bail out the airline industry, then the airline industry better damn well be ready to clean up its act in terms of carbon emissions offsets,” Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse reportedly said.

If everyday people held out any hope that left-wing zealots would set aside politics during these troubling times, that was a pipe dream.

Al Gore, Greta Thunberg: Racial and Climate Activism ‘Bound Together’

Climate activist Al Gore said he supports “the peaceful demonstrations across America calling for equal justice now” because environmental activism and racial justice are part of the same movement, GreenBiz reported.

“We are way overdue in America for a reckoning that addresses the long-standing injustices borne by black, brown and indigenous people,” he said.

Gore’s statement clarifies that the true purpose of the unrest sweeping through the nation is to enact a progressive economic, social and political agenda, not to protest the George Floyd‘s alleged murder.

“Entrenched, systemic racism in our country has led to disproportionate impacts of pollution on communities of color, along with disparities in income, education, healthcare and more,” he said in a statement. “The need for climate action is bound together with the struggle for racial equality and liberation.”

Gore then raised the stakes with a panic-mongering hat-trick, saying that there is a common thread among climate change, COVID-19 and systemic racism.

“Today, African Americans are suffering from COVID-19 more than any other race, in part because their much higher exposure to air pollution increases the mortality rate from the virus,” he said.

He said in March that climate change science and coronavirus science are “exactly the same thing.”

Climate activist Greta Thunberg also said she supports the protests.

Thunberg has shown her sympathy for the far-left, radical anarchist organization Antifa.

Burger King Addresses Climate Change by Changing Cows’ Diets

Burger King is staging an intervention with its cows.

The chain has rebalanced the diet of some of the cows by adding lemon grass in a bid to limit bovines contributions to climate change. By tweaking their diet, Burger King said Tuesday that it believes it can reduce a cows’ daily methane emissions by about 33%.

Cows emit methane as a by-product of their digestion, and that has become a potential public relations hurdle for major burger chains.

Greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture sector made up 9.9% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Of that amount, methane emissions from livestock (called enteric fermentation) comprised more than a quarter of the emissions from the agriculture sector.

With an over-the-top social media campaign that teeters between vulgarity and science (sprinkled with more vulgarity), Burger King is banking on the heightened awareness of climate change and its responsibility to limit its own role.

According to a recent poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, about two out of three Americans say corporations have a responsibility to combat climate change. The gravitational pull of climate change is increasingly finding its way onto national political stage.

Potential customers are also cutting down on the amount of meat they consume, citing both environmental and dietary concerns. Burger King and rival McDonald’s have added meat alternatives to their menus.

Two years ago McDonald’s said it was taking steps to cut the greenhouse gases it emits. It tweaked the manner in which the beef in its Big Macs and Quarter Pounders was produced. The company said at the time that it expected the changes to prevent 150 million metric tons (165 million tons) of greenhouse gas emissions from being released into the atmosphere by 2030.

Burger King worked with scientists at the Autonomous University at the State of Mexico and at the University of California, Davis to test and develop its formula of adding 100 grams of lemongrass leaves to the cows’ daily diets. Preliminary tests indicate that the lemongrass leaves help the cows release less methane as they digest their food.

On Tuesday, Burger King introduced its Reduced Methane Emissions Beef Whopper, made with beef sourced from cows that emit reduced methane, in select restaurants in Miami, New York, Austin, Portland and Los Angeles, while supplies last.

What peaceful demonstrations?  Where are they?  He's following the party line of "never let a crises go to waste."  But he's right about one thing:  "environmental activism and racial justice are part of the same movement," and that movement is a far left, socialist agenda that, if implemented, would destroy the country.  We know that the country will eventually destroy itself, but not this way.
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10

Calif. Renewable Energy Blackouts a ‘Green’ Suicide Model for the Country
[Excerpts]

California is the world’s fifth-largest economy — larger than India — and it can’t keep the lights on.

All it took for the spectacularly mismanaged state to fall victim to its own “green” energy policies was a summer heatwave. Thanks to a religious aversion to fossil fuels, hundreds of thousands of homes and millions of Californians lost power for two days last weekend as the ever-increasing shift to renewable energy failed to deliver electricity when state residents needed it most.

The California Independent System Operator (CAISO), which runs the electrical grid, has already warned of another electricity supply shortage.

The root cause isn’t climate change, as green energy proponents zealously contend. Rather, the state’s electrical grid has significantly transitioned away from oil and natural gas to solar and wind energy production to keep up with the Democrat-controlled state government’s goal of 60 percent renewable energy by 2030.

California is nowhere near that goal and the plan has already proved to be a disaster — not unlike the state’s $100 billion green bullet train to nowhere.

In a letter to the CAISO, which (Governor) Newsom controls, he insinuated that unpopular state utility companies were at fault for not providing sufficient warning, though he failed to mention that the utilities were in full compliance with state regulations.

It was actually the second time rolling blackouts occurred within the past year. In October, Pacific Gas and Electric cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes to avoid contributing to record forest fires. That crisis was fueled by unprecedented amounts of forest debris resulting from anti-logging and anti-development environmental policies — though it was blamed on climate change.

The shift to solar energy requires a decreasing involvement of natural gas, a cheap, reliable source of energy that’s naturally abundant in California.

The problem with solar energy is that it can’t compete with natural gas and fossil fuels on a unit-to-unit basis. Solar power also evaporates when it’s not sunny, which was the issue last weekend. The state’s electric grid teetered on supplying energy for air conditioning and other mundane purposes during the day, and the grid collapsed in the evening hours and night when it was no longer sunny outside.

Cloudy days and winter months when home heating demands will assuredly escalate are other challenges that solar energy policymakers have yet to resolve.

Wind energy has also proved a total failure. Wind has been virtually nonexistent during the summer heatwave which has further burdened the grid. The same weather pattern that’s caused elevated temperatures, a stable high-pressure bubble, involves little to no wind and the resulting effect is climbing temperatures.

The great irony is that California is awash in natural gas, which climate change activists embraced only a few years ago since it burns much cleaner than other cost-effective and reliable fossil fuels, like oil and coal.

There is indeed climate change taking place in California.  Our springs go into June and our summers have been going into September and at times November as we saw when Paradise burned down. The issue is not so much that there are variations in climate as what causes a change. Democrats say it is carbon dioxide which they teach man has caused to increase by burning fossil fuels.

I have yet to hear that there is a supernatural power involved in climate change and the fires that are burning up California, Oregon, and Washington. And, the Coronavirus. And, yes, Satan works through those who are not fully surrendered to Christ. Like the fall of the Trade Towers, God is removing His hand of protection from the world. What we see today is just the beginning of the end. We will see more fires, more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more earthquakes, more murders, more calling good evil and evil good.

Facts are facts and science is science, but God is left out of the equation. And so is Satan who when God allows will destroy at will. Much of the world has been battling against God.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
