Prominent climate activist and meteorologist Eric Holthaus has admitted that climate change activism is not about climate science, but really about “justice.” Holthaus’ admission is merely the latest in a long line of ‘scientists’ and others admitting that leftist political radicalism is the true goal of the asserted climate crisis.

With a Tweet, Holthaus joined a long line of climate alarmists on the left now fully admitting that the climate “crisis” or “emergency” is not about the science after all. Tweeted Holthaus:

The climate emergency isn’t about science, it’s about justice,”

This isn’t the first time Holthaus has revealed that social revolution guides his advocacy, with climate change serving as a Trojan horse for social revolution. Holthaus previously claimed the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate reports necessitate imposing “rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism.”

In Holthaus’ world, it is also “white supremacy” that also must be dismantled under the guise of fighting climate change. Kate Marvel, a climate activist who is also a NASA scientist made this outlandish claim on June 1st, 2020: “climate justice & racial justice are the same thing..we’ll never head off climate catastrophe w/o dismantling white supremacy.”

But wait, there’s more!

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had some similar slips over the real reason behind the “Green New Deal.”

AOC’s chief of staff acknowledged the Green New Deal was not designed to deal with climate change. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” AOC chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti told the Washington Post.

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

Also, former AOC campaign aide Waleed Shahid admitted the Green New Deal is a “proposal to redistribute wealth and power from the people on top to the people on the bottom.”

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres declared in 2012 that she is seeking a “centralized transformation” that is “going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.”

Prominent teen climate activist Greta Thunberg ranted during the Madrid Climate Conference in 2019: “The climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.” You have to wonder who wrote that for her, as she was 16 years old at the time.

Clearly the howls of impending planetary doom and claims of a “climate emergency” are simply a vehicle to put politicians and bureaucrats in charge of our energy economy. Their agenda has lost any semblance of science, and is now nothing more than a tool for gaining control of our lives.

  1. As I sit here on the northern Oregon coast watching the pelicans fish I am reminded that 50 years ago there were no pelicans this far north. The farthest north they lived was the Monterey, California area. Thanks to the natural warming of our climate we can now enjoy these wonderful sea birds and a glass of our internationally acclaimed Pinot noir wine, which was not possible in this region when our climate was much too cold—50 years ago.

  2. “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the past 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

    Head of UN FCCC

  3. Are we/you so dim as not to have realised this from the very beginning? UN Agenda 21 is the basis of all we here about today. Why do you not quote that? Have none of you read it? Greenwashing the millions from school to grave will land us all in deep sh!!! I’ve worked on the land for the past fifty plus years and yes the climate is forever changing, but to say the planet is in danger, oh come on. The planet is safe. We aren’t. And the sooner then minions realise that the sooner common sense will become the norm again.

  4. At least these people are now arrogant enough to admit what this scam has been all about from its very beginning. As Irwin pointed out that Agenda 21 now 30 clearly states what these people’s agenda has always been.
