Vox: Game Of Thrones Is Like Secretly About “Climate Change”, Ya Know!

This isn’t the first time that a member of the Cult of Climastrology has linked Game Of Thrones to Hotcoldwetdry. Many, many wackadoodle Warmists have played this game. Here we have Voxers Christophe Haubursin and Zack Beauchamp trying to Voxsplain

Game of Thrones is secretly all about climate change

Did you know that Game of Thrones is secretly about the world’s terrible failure to stop climate change? Well, it is, and this video explains why: (you’re welcome to hit the link and watch the very sad video, which probably breaks a bunch of copyright laws)

The show’s much more entertaining stand-in for climate change is the White Walkers, the north-of-the-Wall monsters that command a gigantic zombie army.

The White Walkers are a threat to all humanity: their zombie minions are equally happy to rip apart people of all nations and noble houses. Yet instead of uniting to combat the shared threat to human existence itself, the noble houses in the show spend basically all their time on their own petty disagreements and struggle for power. White Walkers are generally ignored; some nobles deny their existence outright.

Swap climate change for White Walkers and “countries” for noble houses, and it starts to sound a lot like the real world. (snip)

The big wars in Game of Thrones — the Baratheon-Targaryen-Stark-Tyrell-Lannister free-for-all — are basically supposed to stand-in for these complications. All of these noble houses are focused on their short-term interests, but pursuing them is blocking the real problem: stopping White Walkers and their zombie army. Likewise, CO2 emissions skyrocketed in the past 100 years — with potentially catastrophic consequences for the human race.

BTW, here’s what the writer of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin, had to say on the subject

Finally, in a stunning revelation, when an audience member put the ridiculous question, “JRR Tolkien strenuously denied that his books were in any way an allegory for World War II, have you ever been accused of writing about climate change by proxy? You know, it being a bit of a thing in your works, the long Winter?” George replied, “No, I haven’t, not until now,” and continued, “Like Tolkien I do not write allegory, at least not intentionally. Obviously you live in the world and you’re affected by the world around you, so some things sink in on some level, but, if I really wanted to write about climate change in the 21st century I’d write a novel about climate change in the 21st century.

So, no, it’s not about “climate change”, but, reality has never stopped the CoC.

    1. Avatar…Giant corporation intent upon destroying a planet even as the very prospect of their own death looms. Yet death does not deter them from raping the planet….we all know giant corporations like Walmart and Target and Ebay are bent on destroying GAIA.

    2. Hunger Games. The 12 districts all exist to serve the rich in the capital. The rich pigs in the capital all have their perverse games at the expense of the rest of the country barely eeking out an existence…All in the name of Nationalism…ergo rich and nationalism are evil.

    3. Jurasic Park…giant corporation unleashes death and destruction upon mankind all in the name of profits.

    4. Divergent…Big war, Big brother takes over and makes everyone toe the line all the while the smart ones know whats best for everyone and are willing to murder an entire clan to get their point across.

    5. Abyss…giant corporation forced by evil government to kill benign aliens.

    6. Captain America….Giant Evil Corporation thinks they are doing good when in reality their sole purpose is to kill millions to take over the world.

    Nearly every movie ever made portrays either the government or corporations as pure evil incarnate.

    The list is endless….Its no wonder everyone thinks the government and Corporations are evil.

    I don’t see any environmental allegories in GoT, but evil, perverted Cersei & Jaime Lannister would be a good allegorical swap for Hillary and Bill Clinton, while the impotent Viserys Targaryen and his inflated narcissism would swap nicely for Barack Obama.

    Great list, Liam. We could also add a hundred TV shows to the list but it would get too long.
