According to a report by NewsWars (May 6, 2020) “U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres called for global leaders to ‘use the pandemic recovery’ to roll out their global climate change agenda, including allowing fossil fuel companies to collapse and using taxpayer stimulus money to fund green jobs.”
It was inevitable. COVID-19 meets climate change, two issues that have more in common than most expect. Right now, many ‘Green’ activists are in support of the politicians and health care officials who wish to extend the shut down indefinitely and thereafter maintain current state controls and regulations on all aspects of daily living.
With last week’s release of the environmental documentary Planet of the Humans, an interesting philosophical dilemma has surfaced. Produced by Left-wing environmentalists Michael Moore, Jeff Gibbs, and Ozzie Zehner, it should not be surprising that the movie is utterly anti-life and anti-capitalist. But shockingly to those both on the Left and the Right, the documentary presents a brutal and honest account of the environmental destruction wrought by ‘green’ alternate energy initiatives, particularly wind, solar, and biomass.
Given the abject environmental failure of the very initiatives once endorsed by the movie’s producers, they have now changed their tactics, identifying more with the destructive results of the state-imposed COVID-19 shutdown.
