I used to engage often with the climate change debate, Paul Collits wrote, but not so much these days. “I reached a premature and ultimately (disastrously) false conclusion, that facts in this debate would win out.”
In 2018 Collits wrote an article published in the Quadrant describing that, in short, catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (“CAGW”) – global warming caused by humans – is a scam, a confidence trick, and how the climate alarmists pulled it off:
“One of the more useful concepts of modern public policy theory is that of the ‘policy community’, a loose network of actors who share interests and/or beliefs and who together form coalitions, both formal and informal, that end up driving policy outcomes … This is, in effect, how they did it. How they pulled it off.”
Who are they? “They” turns out to be at least eight nodes of a network of true, or maybe, “flag-of-convenience” CAGW believers. Each node has its own compelling reasons for perpetuating the scam:
- the bona fide greenies, political activists who finally have a purpose;
- the grant troughing academics who have built careers and empires on the back of CAGW;
- the climate change money makers;
- the woke corporates;
- the globalist, supranational bureaucrats;
- the deeply concerned, woke individual – the “doctor’s wife”, and indeed often the farmer’s wife, the school teacher or the public servant;
- the politicians;
- the media; and,
- the over-schooled but under-educated, brainwashed millennials.
Together they form perhaps the most powerful network in human history, Collits wrote in 2018.
Yesterday Collits wrote a follow-up article titled ‘Climate Inaction Now!’:
“My earlier conclusion some years back that simply repeating over and over the facts on climate change and pointing out the idiocy of the climate delusion was all that was required to win. That attitude was and is costly, indeed, disastrously, false optimism. Vacating the field was plain dumb. The fight on this one will never end, and the world is, indeed, run by those who turn up.”
So, let’s turn up!

Climate Inaction Now! By Paul Collits, 5 October 2022
The climate alarmists’ arguments, to the extent that they could even be called “arguments”, were so threadbare that it hardly seemed worth the effort to refute them. The “argument” consisted of a set of highly contested propositions that all had to be true for the “case” to be compelling for policy-makers. There is no logic trail from the first proposition to the last. With apologies to the Scottish philosopher David Hume, who argued that you cannot derive an “ought” from an “is”, there is no climate “ought” and no climate “is”.
First, there is the assertion that the earth is warming. Second, we have been told that carbon dioxide caused the earth to warm. Then we had the idea that man contributed significantly to increased levels of carbon dioxide. Next came the claim that this increase was dangerous, not benign. Then, we had the insane idea that public policy could do something about all of this. Next, we had the idiot-level, simp argument that we should do something about all of this. And to cap it all off, we had to “fight” climate change with mitigation and not adaptation. Each assertion was, and remains, highly contestable, to put it at its most polite. To be impolite, it is all absolute tosh. As in the infamous Pell case, only one of the pillars had to be proven to be false for the whole edifice to collapse. The earth has not been warming for ages. Recent rises have been natural. Often the recorded temperatures are rigged. Modelling is not evidence of anything (as Don Aitkin once said). The earth has warmed far more in the past, before industrialisation. Man contributes very little CO2 in the greater scheme of things. A slight rise in global temperatures is a good thing. Man has very little capacity for influencing temperatures (outside the urban heat island effect). Certainly, no individual country has. And if everything else were true, the correct strategy would still be adaptation.
These few counterarguments are merely scratching the surface. Highly respected scientists the world over – 97 per cent of climate scientists do NOT believe all the rubbish spouted by the alarmists – have fully debunked climate myths. But, as we shall see, this has been to little effect when pitted against the policy-emoting that defines our age. There is no consensus. It is manufactured. And even if there were a consensus, it would not be “science” as properly understood. The idea that man-made CO2 causes dangerous global warming has the status of mere hypothesis, just like any other scientific theory. It must be endlessly tested and, if disproven, even once, should be thrown into the dustbin of history.
The ”case” amounts to endlessly repeated talking points chanted by apologists for renewable energy, nothing more and nothing less. The alarmist “archipelago” is simply a motley collection of chancers and ideologues united by their desire to crush traditional, reliable energy. The climate alarmists have been able to create that very effective democratic tool called by the political scientists a “policy community”. Or, if you prefer, a bunch of chancers and ideologues.
With benefits. In careers, spin-off companies, academic posts, promotions, a phalanx of public sector positions, banking middle management appointments, and the rest. There is, indeed, good money in climate change. With the lasting benefit of being – in their eyes – on the right side of history. Occupying the moral high ground, with associated abuser rights. Oh, and power by the bucketload. And endless conferences to attend in wonderful locations. King Charles III – it is still a leap to bring myself to say the title – had to be persuaded by his new Prime Minister not to attend COP 27. The real surprise is that, unbelievably, there have been 26 previous COPs! Climate change is the gravy train’s gravy train.
So, we have in the idea of carbon dioxide-as-culprit a busted flush. A naked emperor. An idea without a core. Yet an idea with endless cache.
Here we sit in 2022, with governments across the globe seemingly winning the public’s approval for “climate action now” and something now called “net zero”. We are suddenly confronted by the real threat of civilisation-ending policies. The old phrase of James Burnham’s, “the suicide of the West”, comes to mind. We seem to be sleepwalking back to the stone age. How has this happened? The best guess is that rational argument no longer counts in the determination of public policies. As we destroyed traditional marriage with a “love is love” meme”, we now seem bent on destroying everything else with a “climate emergency” meme. That rational argument no longer counts in public life is a profound conclusion, if correct, and profoundly distressing. There is simply no human future without energy. Does anyone even notice this? Again, it is a case of the slowly boiling frog and the serfdom at the end of Hayek’s road. The victory of the climate nut-jobs has been a deep shock.
Charles Mackay in Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds suggested:
“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, one by one.”
But we can only come back, one by one, with rational thinking, access to unbiased evidence, real science, open debate, full information, the absence of censorship and scholarly and policy goodwill. There seems to be precious little evidence that the way back is either clear or certain.
No petrol cars by 2030-something? Shivering winters without power? Stifling summers without air-con. The Australian economy decimated. Industries shutting down, or moving to China where, astonishingly, they still build coal-fired power stations by the hundred. This is goon-show territory. Insanity squared. And yet, we all concur. We are sleepwalking into poverty, based on a set on sublimely idiotic assertions without foundation.
Two phrases have crept into the public’s consciousness over the past decade, without any particular (rational) reason for their emergence. They are “climate emergency” and “net zero”. As with the Covid scam, thought by many to be the dress rehearsal for the climate end-game, we have had supra-national organisations, invested corporate actors, queasy politicians caught like rabbits in the headlights conscious of being on the wrong side of history and fearing, above all, their electors, essentially evil, mission-creeped NGOs exceeding their original briefs, media cheer squads, main-chance private equity companies and bemused voters who wouldn’t know a greenhouse gas from a wind farm. It has been a combustible mix, with dire consequences for all of us. Like climate lockdowns. Don’t believe me? Just wait. And it isn’t just China with the (social credit) enforcement tools. Just look at what Trudeau did to the truckers and their supporters in “democratic” Canada when he decided to flex his muscles.
Lost in all of the climate noise has been “the science”, which, no less than three decades ago when the presently proposed policies would have been regarded as preposterous, suggests with compelling and unrefuted evidence, little global warming, minimally influenced by humans, with largely benign consequences and, therefore, the suggestion of the genuinely precautionary principle of doing little and simply keeping a watching brief on developments. The noise of policy-by-emoting blocks out reasonable thinking and science as it is properly conceived.
The recent statement by the United Nations official Melissa Fleming that the UN “owned” the science of climate change, like that of Jacinda Ardern – another climate crusader – which asserted that only government information about Covid was to be counted on as “truth”, might have been expected to be seen widely as jumping the shark. But no, it is only the alt-media and Covid and climate dissidents who see these statements as portending dystopia and, therefore, as worthy of comment.
Further reading: U.N. Communications Official Touts Google Search Partnership: ‘We Own the Science’, National Review, 4 October 2022
Fleming is crystal clear in saying, as was Ardern – we have the right, indeed, the duty, to shut you up if you question the truth as WE see it. No surprise, really. Ardern believes she has the right to change the name of her country (to Aotearoa).
Censorship is simply assumed to be a right of the elites on a range of contemporary issues. But just as effective as censorship is the well-worn strategy of easing certain key phrases – which are no more than contested opinions – into the popular discourse, only as “facts”. It is a bit like labelling people with whom you disagree as “controversial, or, worse, “divisive”. In the wake of the bizarre removal of Andrew Thorburn as one-day-old CEO of the Essendon AFL club, because he is a Christian, we see this tactic in play. Having “divisive” views on abortion now disqualifies you from running a footy club. Hence the endlessly repeated use of terms like “homophobic” as well as portrayals like “divisive” that keeps the debates on particular tracks. Nobody is fact-checking these people, and calling them out for using opinionated, biased terms as if we all agreed they were true. And so, it is with climate change. Just think “denier” to get the picture very quickly.

It is all about narrative construction and maintenance, and the climate brigade are best-in-show at this task. Their use of the full range of the bullshitter’s toolset has been phenomenal and sustained over time against all comers.
It can be seen, then, that despite the lack of a factual base for the headline claims of the alarmist archipelago, they have deployed many weapons, and deployed them very effectively, if deviously. On the other side, alas, the much-needed strategy of getting real scientific thinking about global warming into public policy debate is yet to be devised. This is the core task for those of us that still want industry, cars, warm homes and jobs in 2040.
A mass campaign is needed.
Lots of “climate inaction now” t-shirts and posters. A street presence. We need to fight the enemy on its terms. Emote back, and forget sober, rational, scientific approaches. A snappy catch-cry would help. One that pokes fun, and dares to speak the unspeakable. Like Climate Inaction Now! We wouldn’t dare say that? They bank on this, with their intimidation. Those who see the climate scam for what it is have been pathetically silent and inert. Absent some urgency on the part of club sensible, we will wake up one day not too far from now to a dystopia of stone age, pre-industrial age life where all that we have gained will be lost. We will own nothing, and we will be happy!
I realise that climate sceptics and fellow travellers do not generally wear protest t-shirts nor display posters. That, of course, is precisely the problem. Having lost just about every policy fight going since 1970 and having ceded both the high ground and all of the embedded positions that matter in the institutions that have been so successfully been captured, we face a simple choice. Go home and watch tele, or fight the hard battles, every day, till we take back positions long given up. As Nigel Farage and others say, holding the present ground is no longer good enough, and even that we do not do well. Our own (supposed) side has been infiltrated by fifth columnists like Matt Kean, and these are allowed to run over the top of supposed conservatives like Dominic Perrottet, and just about every other Liberal still standing. This also disarms the dissidents. Massively. It is fighting with one hand tied, when your own (supposed) side has joined the enemy.
My earlier conclusion some years back that simply repeating over and over the facts on climate change and pointing out the idiocy of the climate delusion was all that was required to win. That attitude was and is costly, indeed, disastrously, false optimism. Vacating the field was plain dumb. The fight on this one will never end, and the world is, indeed, run by those who turn up. Just like Greta Tintin Thunberg. And Bill Gates. And what’s his name, the Bond Villain Guy in Germany. And all of the CEOs of private equity companies like Black Rock and Vanguard. And other companies many people have never heard of. They play for keeps. We play tiddlywinks. And we claim shock when we wake up someday to find that the world we once knew and cherished no longer exists. And the climate war is the one that matters most, now.

Very well written article – and I like the idea of Climate Inaction t-shirts etc. to get our point across. Like Convid this is an information battle.
I think climate change is just a cover for the World’s Biggest Land Grab.
Agenda 2030 requires 30% of the earth’s surface set aside as “Protected Areas”.
Who will own those Protected Areas? Wall Street has set up a new asset class called NACs – Natural Asset Companies. The NACs will own the Protected Areas. Who will own the NACs?
Yes climate change matters, but differently from what the author is writing.
He makes a lot of words, but not ONE word about the most important and most dangerous factors: 5G and Haarp.
I believe he just doesn’t know, so instead he tries arguing on the grounds of real Earth temperature, and falsification of statistics. That’s moot.
The US Army predicted that they will “own the weather by 2020” and they do. If there is a flood or a drought anywhere in the world, they did it. Via Haarp, direct energy weapons stationed on satellites, GWEN towers, chemtrail spraying, etc.
They even cause earthquakes and bushfires. They did the tsunamis in Thailand and Japan, the caused the floodings in Pakistan, the drying out in Middle Europe (to destroy crops) and all the big fires around the world, be it California, Australia or Russia, have been caused by arson.
They are evil.
Any resistance activists should stop using arguments that are based on the false paradigm that weather phenomenons are still naturally occuring.
Instead they should begin asking other questions, of which the most important is: what are their plans ?
And here, I fear the worst.
I think they really want to heat up the planet, they want to dry out the Earth, kill most plant and animal life and convert this beautiful planet into a dead desert planet like Mars.
Elon Musk’s 50 000 satellites and their 60 Ghz frequency will destroy the oxygen in the air and further kill our Mother.
Climate hysteria is already preparing a false narrative, so the public doesn’t see who’s really behind.
This is indeed the most important fight humanity has to fight, much more important than any question about civil rights and freedom of opinion or anything that only regards humanity.
This is about the entire planet.
I am just discussing, not arguing; so please do not take offense.
We are talking so called “man-made” climate change and NOT that by the “powers that be” or “the big corporations”; BUT by us mere mortals – the moronic, useless eaters, cows, pigs and every other animal … that is how they are selling it to the dumb sheeple; who believe this BS up daily.
Everything you say is spot on (almost) apart from “ think they really want to heat up the planet, they want to dry out the Earth,”… but hey ho, maybe a different time.
What is not mentioned in the article as I could see, is the discussions and agenda for this totalitarian takeover of our nation states … and in there, they list everything what is happening, including getting the idiots to believe in “climate change” – “WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE UNLESSYOU TURN VEGAN” ….
SO I ASK YOU ONE QUESTION — “Why would they want the
fightingyounger age population turning vegan, drinking soy milk and not eating meat or having dairy products ????”
That answer we know: they want people to be weak and sick. The elders who go to hospital will be killed. The youngers will languish as they type vegan screeds on their computers, before dying off.
Yep and they also want people to be smaller “to reduce their carbon footprint” – Yawn.
About the vegan / eat insects issue, I am not sure yet what might be behind.
Maybe that chitin – the main component of an insect’s exosceleton – might be harmful for humans.
Or they want to induce a vitamin B deficiency, which you get when you do not balance the loss of b vitamins with supplements.
About heating the planet: there must be a reason why they have built these vast underground cities. At one point, they must go underground to hide from something that is happening on the surface. Something that is so lethal that even their fortresses, castle, villas in Geneva, gated cities, bodyguards, armies etc. are not enough to protect them from.
What could that be?
It must be s.th. affecting the athmosphere, either from asteroid impact, or from those thousands of newly-installed satellites.
That’s why I came up with this theory.
I have also read that there is a large portion of aliens – the famous “reptoids” – that hate the athmosphere of our planet, because it contains too much oxygen for them. They want a hot, dry climate with a low oxygen content.
Now, that fits in nicely with 5G’s most destructive capacity, namely the destruction of oxygen via the 60Ghz frequency.
With you until you changed from eating insects. Regards underground cities – thought about a nuclear war – all planned to meet their de-pop agenda ?.
As for aliens – no offense but I shall leave that, but you can see thousands at Man Utd and Liverpool football games.
As for destruction of oxygen ?
Only the Earth isn’t a “planet”.
Really? I thought the definition of planet was a smaller portion of a plane. Don’t want to go there, just sayin’.
One has to wonder where Collits has been hiding for the last three years. Is he really this ignorant?If we want the world we cherish to still exist then the war on humanity being waged by wireless technology, including 5G, is the one that matters most. This is the key to weather warfare, which is how the alleged climate emergency is being faked.Hurricanes can now be manipulated and directed energy weapons can be used to set fire to forests and houses. Crops can be destroyed using HAARP. Microwave radiation is causing bacteria to multiply, destroying, among others, the soil biome and trees. Trees exposed to radiation from WiFi, antennas and digital street lights are dying.Microwave radiation can also be used for mind control, which may be reinforcing the lie of climate change, which its authors have admitted themselves that they invented.If we want to save all life on Earth, then it is microwave radiation that must be stopped in its tracks. HAARP, the weaponisation of the atmosphere, directed energy weapons, mobile phones, digital street lights, and WiFi must all be stopped. This should have been done long ago. Everything we are seeing now that is blamed on climate change is in fact the product of microwave warfare waged against all of us.
An excellent article. I’m struck by the fact that people are easy to manipulate when they are fearful. The slide away from faith, which brings with it a confidence that the world will continue as God intended, has made it easy to convince people that it will not. Instead of starting from reason, we are starting from panic and moving from panic to panic without questioning the evidence. It’s interesting that faith is causing people to follow the evidence: something which the faithful are accused of failing to do.
Complete silliness and typical of the stupidity swallowed. We are MICROWAVING the planet with technologies intended to act as DEW (direct energy weapon) and to ‘connect the internet of things and bodies’ under the grand sweep of social credit systems. The inconvenient truth is that microwaving every one and thing uses enormous amounts of ELECTRICITY and kills biome, insects and damages cells and DNA. Be a bit more bright.
The most important reason temperatures are being changed is the heating caused by the huge infrastructures based in every continent with which the weather is being modified for economic and control of the population purposes.
Next to these infrastructures, just count the many mobile towers that are being raised everywhere, the smart meters, the LED lamps with wifi hotspots, the sattelites being brought into the atmosphere, the many smartphones now being used. All of these together create a huge amount of heat. Just experience the heat on your skin when phoning for a long period of time. This kind of heat is being propelled into our skies 24 hours a day from all these infrastructures!
We all urgently need to dare and face the truth about this!
Although co2 AGW hoax maybe a major pillar of war by Club Of Rome/UN/WEF et al using Swiss IPCC political computer modelling like Neil Ferguson B&MG Fnd hoax political computer modelling did for Convid1984 to inject covaids, not however the greatest threat even though significant one… Dr Tim Ball absolutely verifiably exposed co2 scam a constructive fraud. RF EMF Antennae smart grid radiation the greatest threat, also densifying worldwide radiation exposure daily from new installed antennae. Why is this radiation in any dose uninsurable? The loss adjusters verified long ago microwave radiation verified harms all biology. Some of RF EMF Phased-Array Antennae used to gaslight people about harmless co2 below. Wireless antennae many types, also connected 24/7 internet, creating invisible radiation has a multitude of stealth weaponised other uses.

Came too a conclusion because the science is ignored now and just used too create a narrative.
any elite flying in a private plane is beaten to within an inch of their life for producgin climate emissions. Then ration all forms of energy so no elite can use any greater quantity than the poorest.
Then you watch how fast the BS stops.
There is no other solution than this now once science was ridiucled and warped to fit the global warming agenda.
That is why the top must now be made to live the consequences of what they promoted and torpedo De Caprio’s mega yacht to stop it preodcuing more emissions than the poorest human.
Being poor reduces the potential to produce emissions and a good strategy too fight globals warmign byt elites. /S

It may be a philosophical improvement to cherish the creator and not the creation. Apparently, no matter how much we cherish it, the world will be consumed at the end of days. Jesus expressed this in his parable about building your castle on the rock instead of on the sand. Because, castles built on sand “slips in the sea, eventually.” Cherishing the world is building a castle on the sand. Get it?
Three years back on Deutsche Welle there was a documentary about the internet. It was a consumer number 3 in the world (after USA and China. Can you imagine adding another country size of China on the planet (in energy needs). After introduction of 5G, internet could be number 1. The biggest amount of energy is used in wireless communications. The number of antennas is rising like crazy. It came to that point that I can not pass Frankfurt airport area without terrible headache; I am EHS since 2012. Microwave radiation is heating our planet significantly. The biggest threat are now internet satellites, which are radiating the whole planet but do not forget 2G,3G, 4G, 5G, WiFi, smart meters and other wireless devices. There is no critique of Musk’s usage of rockets regarding CO2 and other pollutants in the upper atmosphere; the focus are cows and cars.
Carbon dioxide does not drive a rise in temperature on earth. It is the other way around. A rise in global temperature happens several years before CO2 begins to rise. Also if you watch this video, it shows why the narrative of governments across the globe does not add up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITGatxfCLtg
Finally, I have found someone who can and has written an opposing and believeable article on “climate change.” I will send this to friends who can take
an opposing view of the so called “leaders of the “free world.””
[…] If We Want the World We Cherish to Still Exist then The Climate War is The One That Matters Most […]
The climate is being altered by “weather warfare” techniques that have been around since mid-20thC and have been accelerating this century. Chemtrails daily produce the “elephant in the sky”, and they are loaded with nanoparticulate heavy metals (aluminum, barium, cadmium) and an assortment of things that are not healthy for humans and other living things. They metallize and weaponize the environment. This, together with millimeter wave technology, is altering the climate and destroying the environment. The Geoengineering program is “above government” level, it is a United Nations program, and they collaborate with the cabal (WEF, all the usual suspects) to destroy the planet and create a mutation via Operation Lockstep so they can “Build Back Better” with Human 2.0. Of course, this is diabolical and must be fought with every fiber of our being. This is “conspiracy reality”. We are at war.
I am in near agreement with everything you assert, apart from the fact our Earth is not “planet”.
What is it then ?

Transcending the Climate Change Deception – Toward Real Sustainability Paperback – August 14, 2022 by Mr Mark Christopher Keenan (Author)
See all formats and editions
This book demolishes the fake climate change hysteria. The author, Mark Keenan, is a former scientist at the UK Government Dept. of Energy and Climate Change, and at the United Nations Environment Division. Via their control of politics and the media, powerful special interests have tried to convince the world that Co2 is a climate changing toxin. The UN climate change narrative, that Co2 causes climate change, will be remembered as the greatest mass delusion in the history of the world. The money agenda, fake science and fraudulent computer modelling is exposed. Thousands of experienced and distinguished scientists assert and have proved that the UN narrative is a lie. The climate hoax has subverted and suppressed real environmentalism and real local sustainability, and is designed to propel humanity into UN Agenda 2030, which is a plan for total corporate control of the world’s resources. UN Agenda 2030 aims to move everyone off the land and into ‘smart cities’. This is smart for them, not smart for you. We are in a real physical and spiritual war for truth and freedom.
Global warming because of CO2 is bull
Biggest threat humanity is EMF, especially 5G
