Note: I wrote this two years ago, and I think it is pretty clear by now a) that the climate change bubble has burst at the propaganda level; 2) it was the Russian state that put the knife in. For the first and only time, the Russian security services really were ont he side of ordinary working people everywhere….[SIG]
What I predict will happen is that the propaganda will continue for the next few years. But it will be gradually be replaced by a new set of justificatory lies. Global warming itself was the replacement for acid rain pollution, ozone holes, and even global cooling. In the absence of some new environmental claims, I suggest that we shall hear much more for now on about “peak oil” – the notion that fossil fuels exist in limited supplies and that they will run out within the next few generations.
