    Default Why doesn't the left talk about this?

    Seeing as the left seem to be brainwashed believers in their feelings versus reality, how do you explain this...

    Say climate change is man made (highly dubious but just a hypothetical for this discussion). Why are other countries transitioning to renewables (higher cost, especially without subsidies) - whilst China is increasing consumption generally?

    https://elements.visualcapitalist.co...l-g20-nations/

    At what point would the left stop attacking the West and focus on the current issues that China are creating? (I know China has 'promised' to transition to renewables over the next 30-40 years but who would be able to hold them accountable and how?)

    Climate change seems to conveniently create the need for world police/one world government...

    Sorry, once a person starts spouting that it is dubious that climate change is man made, and then follows it up with one world conspiracy theories, they can be easily dismissed.

    Classic bait and switch. And you fell right for it.

    Let's say air quality did improve. But by how much? And was it even enough to make an impactful difference?

    Meanwhile, under the Patriot Act which was filed quickly after 9/11, more of your rights got stripped away because fear led you to a place of valuing security over freedom. Whether that be security from "terrorism" or "climate change" is irrelevant.

    The Patriot Act expands all these exceptions to the probable-cause requirement. Section 215 of the act permits the FBI to go before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for an order to search for "any tangible things" connected to a terrorism suspect. The order would be granted as long as the FBI certifies that the search is "to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities [spying]." But the FBI would not need to meet the stronger standard of probable cause.

    The Patriot Act now authorizes this court to issue search orders directed at any U.S. citizen who the FBI believes may be involved in terrorist activities. Such activities may, in part, even involve First Amendment protected acts such as participating in non-violent public protests.

    In Section 215, "any tangible things" may include almost any kind of property—such as books, documents, and computers. The FBI may also monitor or seize personal records held by public libraries, bookstores, medical offices, Internet providers, churches, political groups, universities, and other businesses and institutions.

    The Patriot Act prohibits third parties served with Section 215 orders such as Internet providers and public librarians to inform anyone that the FBI has conducted a search of their records.

    Section 216 of the Patriot Act extends pen-trap orders to include e-mail and web browsing. The FBI can ask Internet service providers to turn over a log of the web sites a person visits and the addresses of e-mail coming to and from the person's computer.

    Another area of concern is Section 213 of the Patriot Act. It authorizes so-called "sneak-and-peek" searches for all federal criminal investigations. When applying for a search warrant, officers may show that there is "reasonable cause to believe that providing immediate notification . . . may have an adverse result." If the judge approves, then the FBI can delay notifying a citizen about the search for a "reasonable period." Thus, the FBI may search a citizen's home or business in secret. The FBI says these searches may be necessary to prevent the destruction of evidence or to keep from jeopardizing an ongoing secret investigation.

    Keep fighting for that climate change though.

    Oh, and the FBI is totally your friend and this has nothing to do moving towards a surveillance police state.

    Climate change has happened for millenia.

    Why do you think Turkic hordes traveled West towards Europe? Their pastureland was drying up

    The planet has survived meteor strikes for billions of years. Strikes that have superheated the Earth's atmosphere to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit.

    But people who don't know what gender they are, are supposedly now the experts on climate change and who honestly think the Earth only has a few years left. .

    Leftist elites like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet, Bloomberg, Musk, etc...each have carbon footprints equivalent to hundreds or thousands of average american households. When you fly private ~150 times a year, own 5-10 mansions, own or regularly rent a superyacht, and have dozens of staff catering to your every need 24/7, you have no business telling anyone else that their carbon footprint is too large.

    Completely agree - do you think the young are brainwashed though or do people know about the irrationality?

    I dunno really, but I would bet there are a lot of young folks who can recognize the absurdity of the modern climate movement. From what I have seen, the zoomers are not oblivious to the fact that society has left them virtually no foothold or anything resembling optimism.

    Teenagers are committing suicide in Australia, especially with lockdowns but the information is suppressed generally.
