Record Farm Yields Contradict Climate Doomsayers’ Claims
Ultimately, more atmospheric carbon dioxide has the same beneficial impact on farm production as it does in greenhouse growing facilities. Also, warmer temperatures bring longer growing seasons and fewer devastating frost events.
Ultimately, more atmospheric carbon dioxide has the same beneficial impact on farm production as it does in greenhouse growing facilities. Also, warmer temperatures bring longer growing seasons and fewer devastating frost events.

U.S. and global crop production continue to set new records, even as climate activists ramp up a campaign to convince people that climate change is decimating crop production and forcing farmers out of business.

The latest misinformation was spread by Politico. Politico in October published an article titled, “‘I’m standing right here in the middle of climate change’: How USDA is failing farmers.” On December 9, Politico followed up with an article titled, “How a closed-door meeting shows farmers are waking up on climate change.” The October article claimed “American farmers are reeling” from extreme weather caused by climate change. The article also complained that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is not devoting more money toward climate change programs. The December article asserted horrible “destruction wrought by catastrophic weather this year.” The article placed the blame on climate change and then trumpeted efforts to change government agriculture policy to focus on climate change.

The Politico articles generated substantial attention from the media echo chamber, including Google News searches for “climate change” placing the Politico articles at the top of search results. Unfortunately for climate activists – but fortunately for farmers and the rest of us – the climate change crop scare is pure fiction.

These activists have been wrong over and over again. Their goal never changes, just the game plan. This 2 yr old article predicts even more of the same in the year ahead (2018). As we all now know, or who care to know, not only have they continued, they’ve ramped up to hysterical proportions. They are going for broke with the climate change issue. An issue that has been ongoing for many 100’s of 1000’s of years unabated by the way. Billions of years actually. The North Pole was once home to crocodiles? STFU! No, seriously. In December 1908, explorer Ernest Shackleton was shocked to discover evidence of palm trees frozen in the glacial ice of Antarctica. 90 years later, new fossil evidence backed up this claim, showing crocodile-like creatures sunbathing in the Arctic Circle as recently as 100 to 40 million years ago. Imagine that! The climate has been changing since Day 7. It has always changed. It always will continue change. And nothing, whether it be a useless idiot in the form of a deranged teenager from a foreign land whose radical environmentalist fathers impersonates on Facebook, or an equally useless idiot like the PM of Canada (and everybody in between) can or will ever do a thing about it.

The one and only genuine enemy to our planet when it comes to our environment is pollution. But fighting pollution is never going to make anybody fabulously wealthy. No country will ever be converted to socialism fighting pollution. No wealth will ever be redistributed fighting pollution. No western democracies will never be brought to heel by the globalists by fighting pollution. This war is all about money and politics. It has ZERO to do about the climate. With each passing day more and more of the adults in the room are coming to recognize the scam. That’s exactly why these radicals are going after the minds of our children, perhaps more importantly the minds of our grand children. They are in it for the long game. They are patient. If we do not take back control of our education system and darn soon, this war will be lost. Of that there can be no doubt.

How do we know their evil battle plan? They have told us.

“We (UN-IPCC) redistribute
de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy…”
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international
climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing
to do with environmental policy anymore…”

Dr. Ottmar Endenhofer, IPCC
Co-chair of Working Group 3
November 13th, 2010

Still not convinced? Okay.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted recently that the true motivation behind introducing the Green New Deal is to overhaul the “entire economy.”

Chakrabarti said that addressing climate change was not Ocasio-Cortez’s top priority in proposing the Green New Deal during a meeting with Washington governor Jay Inslee.

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts, according to a Washington Post reporter who attended the meeting for a profile published Wednesday.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” he added.

Make no mistake about it. This indoctrination is happening today right here across Canada. They are coming for me. They are coming for you. They recognize the fact that they are losing the support of mature critical thinking adults. Change of strategy. Our grand children will be their foot soldiers. As Vladimir Lenin said “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted”. Behold…
