RFK Jr. Says ‘Mega-Billionaires’ Are Using Climate Change To Implement ‘Totalitarian Control’ of Society
“Climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates and all of these big mega-billionaires, the same way that COVID was exploited."
Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr., son of slain U.S. presidential candidate Robert Kennedy, is speaking out against the globalist agenda behind the radical environmentalist movement.
In an interview with Kim Iversen on Friday, RFK Jr. spoke out against the "mega-billionaires" who are exploiting concerns about the environment to push forward a 'totalitarian' agenda.
“Climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by, you know, the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates and all of these big, you know, mega-billionaires, the same way that COVID was exploited, to use it as an excuse to clamp down, top-down totalitarian controls on society,” Kennedy said.
The World Economic Forum took place in January, with many world leaders and top business executives arriving at Davos, Switzerland, for panel discussions and speeches. Speakers at Davos have touted 15-minute cities where people didn’t need cars, claimed the world did not need “growth or development,” called for censorship and demanded commitments to achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions.
“They’ve given climate chaos a bad name, you know, because people now see that it’s just another crisis that’s being used to strip mine the wealth of the poor and to, you know, to enrich billionaires and I for 40 years, have had the same policy on climate and engineering, you can go check my speeches from the 1980s and I’ve said, the most important solution for environmental issues, not top-down controls, is free market capitalism,” Kennedy added.
Climate-related events—floods, droughts, storms, fires, and temperature extremes—are not actually killing more people. Deaths have dropped by a huge amount: In the 1920s, almost half a million people were killed by climate-related disasters. In 2021, it was less than 7,000 people. Climate-related disasters kill 99% fewer people than 100 years earlier.
A UN report published in 2022 assessed “global disaster-related mortality," however, and manages to find that contrary to the international disaster database, deaths are higher than ever before. They reach this conclusion by bizarrely including the deaths from COVID in the catastrophes.
Covid reportedly killed more people just in 2020 than all the world’s other catastrophes in the past half-century. Lumping these in with deaths from hurricanes and floods is inappropriate and fraudulent. The truth is that deaths from climate disasters have fallen dramatically because technologically advanced and economically developed countries are much better at protecting citizens than undeveloped ones. Research shows this phenomenon consistently across almost all catastrophes, including storms, floods, cold and heatwaves.
Climate experts in 2022 published peer-reviewed research in the journal European Physical Journal Plus that debunks numerous claims about ‘apocalyptic’ climate change that have flourished in the mainstream press.
One such article comes from the New York Times in March 2022, which claimed that: “Scientists have been able to draw links between a warming planet and hurricanes, heat waves and droughts, but the same can’t be said for tornadoes yet.”
But such presumptions are utterly demolished with data and fact-based analysis in the 2022 study, “A critical assessment of extreme events trends in times of global warming.” It disabuses readers of the false argument that climate change poses an existential threat to human life and to the planet.
“Since its origins, the human species has been confronted with the negative effects of the climate; historical climatology has repeatedly used the concept of climate deterioration in order to explain negative effect of extreme events (mainly drought, diluvial phases and cold periods) on civilization,” the authors state. “Today, we are facing a warm phase and, for the first time, we have monitoring capabilities that enable us to objectively evaluate its effects.”
“We need to remind ourselves that addressing climate change is not an end in itself, and that climate change is not the only problem that the world is facing,” the authors add. “The objective should be to improve human well-being in the twenty-first century, while protecting the environment as much as we can and it would be a nonsense not to do so: it would be like not taking care of the house where we were born and raised.”
This peer-reviewed research also finds that the predicted surge in natural disasters, such as hurricanes, tornadoes and droughts, has largely failed to materialize despite all the alarmist reporting on "climate change."
