The three D’s of the climate change agenda: Deception, Distortion, Delusion

Concept of a narcissistic and egoistic man. Silhouette of a man standing, motivating himself at the mirror and sees in the reflection of himself with a crown on his head


By Joe Bastardi 

This is the centerpiece of the left-wing agenda being pushed today. I happen to believe that all this is flowing into using the climate as the straw that breaks the camel’s back of freedom. But they all share Deception, Distortion, and Delusion.

I will offer some glaring examples in climate here, but the onslaught is coming daily and in waves. Are the people pushing this evil? No. Are they influenced by an evil that denies a creation that they must adapt to for their own good to advance, and instead seek to control that creation? I believe so.  What’s next, stopping the sun from rising?

First let’s look at some definitions:

Deception: the act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid

Distortion: the act of twisting or altering something out of its true, natural, or original state

Delusion:  implies an inability to distinguish between what is real and what only seems to be real, often as the result of a disordered state of mind

Look around you and if you are rational, you can see the linkage in all the matters trying to disrupt and destroy our way of life.

Salon put this out:

This flies in the face of multiple known’s, hich I will be happy to show you here.

First of all, CO2 is not a pollutant. Secondly, in true polluting China is by far the biggest polluter. Why bully your own country?But,in no particular order, some obvious refutation:

How you can possibly link  the rise of CO2 with the deaths from climate?  In fact, since 1930 was really when the fossil fuel age took off—given the population increase—112 times the number of people should be dying from climate.

They do this stuff all the time. It is like Gore with his damages increasing ideas. Never mind there are so many more people and so much more property in the way. What next?  Saying more people are dying in a year globally today than ever before?  There are 4x more people, so of course that would be the case. What is remarkable is how FEW PEOPLE are dying now from the very thing we are being told is killing them. So its deception, distortion, and delusion.

Here is something from NASA:

The earth is growing greener. Globally, more food is being grown today than ever.  How does a so-called Green Agenda advocate for policies that would stop this?  They use deception, distortion and delusion because their agenda plainly is actually not about this.

You have seen this before:

Why are the leaders of the US so hell-bent (which is where they are trying to drive this country into a hellish Venezuelan like system) on attacking our way of life when you can plainly see China building 2 coal plants a week and is thumbing their nose at the rest of the world?  They are either afraid of China, or in bed with them in some form or one more possibility—they are totally clueless about reality, though I doubt that.  Again, this is deception, distortion and delusion to change the perception of reality.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn says it best (paraphrased): When absolutes become subjective, then the subjective can become absolutes.

The bottom line deception, distortion, and delusion accomplish this.

The idea that colder is better than warmer—pushing this is pure deception, distortion and delusion:

Then of course there is the melting Arctic ice. You can check off the list of ice-free arctic predictions one after another:

But this is nothing new.

Look at this headline from 1939:

Or the idea there would be no more snow on Kilimanjaro:

By the way, arctic sea ice now is above the 10 year running mean and very close to the 20-year.  What we have been seeing is less increase in the winter, but LESS DECREASE  in the warm part of the year (light blue is last 10 years, middle line is now, and gray is 2001-2010).

Would make sense given we are not warming the Arctic in the warm time of the year, again a direct linkage to water vapor increases, not CO2:

We can go on and on. Yet Salon put this out. Deception? Well if you don’t show the entire picture, what is that? Distortion: You push a result that is plainly not where the natural course of where we are is showing ITS OPPOSITE. Delusion? How do you come to the opposite conclusion or at least not see that the current trend is the opposite of what you are saying.

One more thing before I go. Recently, much has been made about how warm it is in Canada It is. And it’s a worthy news story. Just as the flooding that is occurring due to the heavy winter snows in the Rockies and the inevitable warm-up of spring is BUT IF IT HAD NOT SNOWED SO MUCH THERE WOULD NOT BE THE FLOODING. Snowfall in the northern hemisphere is INCREASING

That again is not co2, it’s Water vapor ( more moisture) so the opposite of what was being pushed is happening in the big picture.  But read this

The Canadian heat wave is making headlines, predictably with climate implications

It should make headlines. That is extremely warm. About 75% of North America is above normal for the next 10 days

The land mass of North America is

9,540,000 square miles

But here is something that is all too common. Frankly, I do not know if I could make it as a meteorologist today if I were in school or just out, as you can no longer question authority.

Look at Asia

I would say 80% of Asia is below normal

How big is Asia?

17.21 million mi²

The cold over the Himalayas is almost as impressive as the warmth in Canada. And far larger area of Asia are cold

Here is a bigger picture

There appears to be more cold than warm globally. And a rare event both polar regions are cold at the same time.

This is a glaring example of one-sided WEATHER reporting that has been showing up without showing the entire picture. Why would you not look at the entire picture, or let people know about it?

When pushing an agenda, hiding the truth via deception, distortion, and delusion is used. And across the board, not just climate and weather, that linkage should be clear to any free-thinking and rational person today.
