War May Threaten, But Truth Will Change the Climate
April 23 , 2021 (EIRNS)—Let us not be persuaded by the clamor that beats about the ears of the credulous being taken in by the antics of the Biden climate summit. Beneath that rancorous din, can be heard the low drumbeat of war. Take the comments yesterday of United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin at the summit:
“Today, no nation can find lasting security without addressing the climate crisis.... Climate change is making the world more unsafe and we need to act.... The climate crisis is a profoundly destabilizing force for our world. As the Arctic melts, competition for resources and influence in the region increases. Closer to the Equator, rising temperatures and more frequent and intense extreme weather events in Africa and Central America threaten millions with drought, hunger, and displacement.”
This is a restatement of the 1974 National Security Study Memorandum-200 policy, called “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.”
Indian Minister of Power, New and Renewable Energy Raj Kumar Singh on March 31 framed the counter-argument when he stated: “You have 800 million African people who do not have access to electricity. We (India) will achieve whatever has to be achieved because we get investments. What about those (African) countries?”
Though a memorandum of understanding promoting the Biden climate agenda was signed between the United States and India, the truth about the Great Reset’s depopulation agenda is well known to India. When we see the resistance to Russian and Chinese presence in Central Africa from the French, British and the United States, the use of Islamic-label terrorist networks to shut down Total’s $20 billion LNG project in Mozambique, and the assassination of President Idriss Déby of Chad, a strong supporter of the Transaqua water management project, we know that the prospects for true economic progress, and an end to the long-term effects of colonialism on the African continent are the real target of the economic hit men like Mike Bloomberg, so evident at the Biden debacle.
In Germany, Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted, we have a synthetic creation called Annalena Baerbock, chancellor candidate of the Green Party. Her policies, including “ambitious climate protection” by NATO, a “transatlantic climate partnership” with the United States, and a change of German industry to create “climate-neutral steel” to oppose the “authoritarian China,” could well turn out to be the policies of the next German government. Baerbock, it should come as no surprise, put in time at the London School of Economics. Is she cut from the same British Union Jack as Hans Joachim (“Sir John”) Schellnhuber? She is also, of course, anti-“Russian authoritarianism.” She is, however, not a German, but a European project, intended as the “bright new young face” of depopulation. This is Hjalmar Schacht in greenface.
Russia’s recent military actions in the Black Sea have temporarily prevented further escalation in that situation. Putin has made clear to Zelensky that no nonsense will be tolerated regarding the matter of Crimea. Meanwhile, the United States Congress has appropriated money to conduct “public diplomacy” warfare against the Belt and Road Initiative. And we must keep our eye on the situation in Central Africa, with Russia, France, Britain, China and the United States, among others, involved under the guise of shifting priorities in the era of climate change.
The work of the Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites, as expressed in the Harley Schlanger interview with Col. Richard Black today, and the process of recruitment of others, including from the American military, to stand in solidarity with Colonel Black’s policy, challenges the military and other institutions to assert to the world that Americans do not believe in torture of prisoners, or of civilians, do not believe in the mistreatment or killing of civilian populations during war, do not believe in taking the food supplies of nations, or of withholding medicines and vaccines. A worldwide health program, with adequate water, power, transportation, hospitals, vaccines and medicines, medical personnel and schools, is the only solution, in the short term. This will function. not only for preventing world war, not only for maintaining our continued existence as a species free from impending, even more lethal pandemics. That commitment for a new world health platform may be the only way to deliver the trans-Atlantic world from its present state of moral collapse. Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s interview on the origin and purpose of the Schiller Institute, which will be made available this weekend, is a perfect introduction for those that wish to know why we do what we do, and for what we are fighting.
