Young Climate Cultists Sue 33 Countries Or Something

I think we should apply all the rules of the Cult of Climastrology to themselves

Young Portuguese activists take 33 countries to court over climate crisis

Six young Portuguese activists launched Thursday a European human rights case against 33 countries in the latest legal effort to force governments to step up their fight against climate change.

The six filed a claim Thursday asking the European Court of Human Rights to hold the countries accountable for their allegedly inadequate efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The activists argue that failures to address climate change constitute a threat to their physical and mental well-being, violating their rights to life and respect for their families.

They are backed by the Global Legal Action Network, a international nonprofit organization that challenges human rights violations, and a team of five London lawyers. The countries named in the complaint include the 27 member nations of the European Union plus the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine.

Nope, not astroturfed by adult cultists backed by big money groups.

The six Portuguese range in age between 12 and 21. Four of them live in central Portugal, where wildfires blamed in part on climate change killed more than 100 people in 2017. The two others live in Lisbon, an Atlantic coastal city threatened by rising sea levels.

If the activists win their case at the court in Strasbourg, France, the countries would be legally bound to cut emissions in line with the requirements of the 2015 Paris climate accord. They would also have to address their role in overseas emissions, including by their multinational companies.

Wait, are they saying that all these Paris climate accord signatories aren’t actually doing what needs to be done according to them signing the document? Huh. But, if they really want to do their part

And if their lawsuit wins, then Portugal would have to give up most of their exports, with tomato paste being one of the biggest in the world, and importing a goodly chunk of food, because it’s not the greatest for agriculture. Oh, and all that wine they export. And then there are the metals they export. And then all that oil and coal they need to import to provide 4/5ths of their energy. And a good chunk of tourism will be dead.

    Why do we constantly see an assault on the economic institutions of country after country around the world?

    In The Hundred-Year Marathon, Michael Pillsbury marshals a lot of evidence showing the Chinese government has a detailed strategy to overtake the US as the world’s dominant power.

    They want to do this by 2049, the centennial of China’s Communist revolution.

    The strategy has been well documented in Chinese literature, published and sanctioned by organizations of the People’s Liberation Army, for well over 50 years.

    So how is China doing this? The above points out why and in their own literature it lays out the fact they ARE doing this and want to accomplish it by 2049.

    So HOW?

    Mao once said, “Everything under heaven is in utter chaos, the situation is excellent.” And so it seems at present, as seen from Beijing. Chinese diplomats stationed all over the world spend their time raising the stakes to a dangerous level. Following instructions from the very top, they have taken to the media to issue a challenge to America, to point out its failure, and to compare the chaos in American cities and hospitals with what they see as a singular success in stopping the epidemic in China.

    1000’s of scientists are stealing every technology created around the globe and we are letting them.

    China has started a Belt and Road Iniative that makes nations beholden to them.

    They have created the 50 cent army which infilitrates the internet and creates strife and tension.

    And most of all they are trying to destroy the economies of the world by using their own brainwashed citizens like Elwood to make the case that we need to destroy our economies and become communist because hey that is the best way to go.

    China is pure evil and they will stop at nothing to engulf the world. Never Trumpers and billionaires want free trade, they want China to become the leader of the world. They are traitors and cowards. They will be the first to be executed when America turns to communism because we have allowed 50 years of brainwashing and progaganda to go unchecked in this country.

    AGW is a Communist ploy by China, which started in the 90’s right at the time when China went from 90 billion to 12 trillion in 20 short years.

    AGW is a scam, intended to destroy economies around the world while China soaks up the fossil fuels for themselves.

    When this latest shakedown is tossed out, the Pettifoggers that back these ignorant props should be unilaterally disbarred.

  3. George_Banner says:

    We are the proof that democracy as it is seen today is a failed system.
    We need the vote qualified.
    Breathing should not be qualification enough to vote.

  4. Kye says:

    Once again George_Banner you are on the money. This Republic was never set up for universal suffrage. The idea was to have elections determined by those who care, have something to lose and have an IQ above 70. The worst move although it seems unstoppable now was letting women vote.

    We also need to address why our Constitution has been shredded and manipulated into the exact opposite of how it was meant.

    On top of it all Google and Facebook are manipulating our ability to communicate and Free Speech and deliberately trying to subvert the vote.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye recognizes that America was planned for white, christian men. Liberals think it should be for all Americans, but NuCons such as Kye finally feel free to admit they prefer America be a white, christian male nation.

      • formwiz says:

        No, it was set up for people of intelligence and substance, which lets you out. If you notice, however, there are no criteria for the franchise in the Constitution. Voter qualifications were left to the states.

        So you’re a jerk twice over.

        Now letting women vote is a bad idea because women are easily swayed, men less so. the use of property owner for voting (and blacks were never forbidden to own property) were to ensure, as Kye ably put it, elections determined by those who care, have something to lose.

        You want the Roman mob.

      • Kye says:

        Elwood finally admits that America was planned for white, Christian men. At last!!! Liberals no longer exist Elwood so don’t start backing up the lexicon. In today’s America as designed by Democommies there are radical leftists/communists and American Patriots. Guess which team you’re on?

        America is a great country BECAUSE it was set up by and for white, Christian men. What do you think America would be like if it were set up by and for African, mooslem homosexuals, Elwood? Ya think we would have our Freedoms? Ya think we’d have our economic dynamic? Social conscience? Generosity? Name a country not run by white, Christian men that has our bounty, our creativity, our courage, our inventiveness, our tolerance and sense of Justice.

        Our country was created for people who Value Freedom and Justice above all else. And I’m not talking bullshit “social justice” which is just another leftist way to bastardize the word Justice and diminish it, I’m talking actual Justice Under Law not dictated by what Elwood wants but rather by the Morality of God Himself, real morality. Elwood, Justice means you get what you DESERVE. What do you deserve? What do I deserve? Only what is Bestowed by our Creator the right to Life , Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and not one damn thing more. We deserve what we earn, not what someone else earns. We deserve to be left alone by government not told to wear masks like subjugated mooslem women slaves. Only leftists like you could ever think that’s morally right or progressive. You want to force people to adapt to wearing masks so their individualism is erased. Go to hell.

        As George_Banner said: ” The franchise should be restricted to those who by choice and by right want to be part of the greatest, sanest, healthiest, most powerful and glorious, most rational and moral, good, decent, civilized and better than all other countries in existence and in history, our Capitalist Constitutional Republic The United States of America.

        And you’d better be in tune with it or you don’t vote.

        America is for Americans.”

        That should be tattooed on your skull.

        Trump 2020 because America IS for Americans and every comment Elwood makes shows he’s NOT American.

        “Liberals think it should be for all Americans..”. I’m sure it’s just an over-sight that you forget to add non-Americans to the list in the form of illegal immigrants..

    “Kye says: September 4, 2020 at 8:08 pm ” Thank you, Sir.

    Maybe should have done this already.

    On the term “leftoxenomorph”

    It comes from “lefto” and “xenomorph”
    “Xeno” means “strange” because they look humanoid but they are not huMAN.
    “Morph” means “shape” or “form”
    So “lefto” – “xeno” – “morph” means “leftist strange form”
    And yes, there is a whiff of the “Alien” movies to it and it is not random.
    And an image IS worth a thousand words.

    On the franchise.

    Most women shouldn’t vote. They are leftoxenomorphs.
    And a large bunch of men shouldn’t vote. They are leftoxenomorphs.

    It makes no sense to give the right to vote to a cannibal who wants to eat you.
    As soon as he gets enough cannibals to vote with him . . . you and your values are on the menu.

    Pisslims shouldn’t vote. Their religion is antithetic to America and their “ideal man” and “prophet” was a pedophile and a criminal.

    It makes no sense to give the right to vote to an enemy who hates the country and wants it destroyed and replaced with an ant-hill with a one-hive-mind as part of a leftoxenomorph New World Order under a leftoxenomorph One World Government.

    It makes no sense to give the right to vote to somebody who wants huMANs to abandon our huMANity and become ants.

    It makes no sense to give the right to vote to the criminal, the insane and the feeble minded.

    Leftoxenomorphs shouldn’t vote.

    And illegal aliens? Well . . . “illegal” means they shouldn’t be here and “aliens” speaks for itself> OF COURSE THEY DON’T VOTE!

    The franchise should be restricted to those who by choice and by right want to be part of the greatest, sanest, healthiest, most powerful and glorious, most rational and moral, good, decent, civilized and better than all other countries in existence and in history, our Capitalist Constitutional Republic The United States of America.

    And you’d better be in tune with it or you don’t vote.

    America is for Americans.

    Now, the US is not a joke to be chewed on by leftoxenomorphs and cannibals of any kind.

    Nobody should be able to play their little social engineering games with us and try and force the country in a direction its Founding Fathers never envisioned for it.

    And those who love the country have the right AND the duty to defend it against all foes.

    And that includes NOT allowing leftoxenomorphs and cannibals a say in what we are, where we go, how we go.

    Are there things to fix?

    Yes. We are close to Venezuelaization. So close we can smell it. Literally.

    The Deep State Swamp has to go. Willingly or not.

    The Long March Through The Institutions that sees government infested by leftoxenomorphs and criminals and gatekeeped to make it worse, has to be reversed.

    And government should take its filthy paws out of education and the economy.

    And that government “shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade” SHOULD be in the Constitution. (“Atlas Shrugged”, Ayn Rand)

    Government has to be cut to . . . about 25% or less of its current size and deprived of both “eminent domain” and “civil forfeiture” and ALL of the “gun control” already in place.

    And leftoxenomorphs should be prohibited from holding public office.

    Government has to be geared towards the armed forces, security and courts of justice. All the rest we can do privately. And much, much, much better and much, much, much cheaper. But the “cheaper” is just a bonus.

    And all the money and all the power today stolen and wasted returned to the productive individuals it was taken from by force as what it is: a legitimate part of our individual private lives and for us to decide what to do with it because it is ours and the leftoxenomorph government has no right to any part of it, none.

    The first objection comes usually in the form of “you can’t do that” My answer is simple: yes, we can. If we want to, we do it. And leftoxenomorphs can bleat.
    Right is on our side. And probably might, too.

    The second objection usually comes as: but HOW do you do it?

    The answer is obvious: if you restrict the piloting of planes and the performing of surgeries and the handling of dangerous substances and procedures to qualified individuals there is no reason why you can’t do the same with the right to vote and for the same reason: because it is too dangerous to do otherwise.
    And the making sure of the identity of the voter and that he only votes once is a small technological matter.

    The rest is in the details and we can talk about them.

    But the principle is sound and doable and we’d better start soon.

    Will we do it?

    I’m not that much of an optimist.

    Our benevolence and our tolerance and our desire to be nice and our permanent “yes, dear . . .” gynocentric attitudes stand in the way.
    Another way to put it is that I don’t think we have it in us.
    We have become too pussyfied for the task.
    We are probably more likely to default on our duties, abandon the ramparts and let the flag fall and be replaced by a stinking red rag of cannibal leftoxenomorph collectivism with a sickle and a hammer in it and, quite probably, some green and a crescent in it, too, for bad measure.

    The truth is that leftoxenomorphs have already almost won the cultural and political war and they are already conducting mopping up operations.

    We should go back to the Founding Fathers and what they founded and why and bathe our souls in their ideas and be worthy of them.
    We probably will not.

    Civilizations fall.
    Ours is falling.
    We are letting it fall.
    Our fall is not a metaphysically given.
    It is man made, man allowed and man tolerated.
    We could check it, reverse it and fly on, triumphantly, to still greater things and much better and freer lives.
    The Universe is out there, for the taking.
    But that would require great effort, ruthlessness, some cruelty and a lot of blood.
    It wouldn’t be peaceful.
    1776 wasn’t peaceful.
    Hey! Thermopylae wasn’t peaceful, was it?
    And the Battle of Trenton wasn’t “diverse” or “inclusive” or bullshitsectional was it?
    But the Founding Fathers were men, not pussies.
    And we have been working REALLY hard at stopping that nasty tendency of men to behave like men should, ANOTHER triumphant leftoxenomorph initiative.
    So . . .

    Enforced by whom?

    That’s the problem with the silly concept of international law: if a country does not wish to obey it, there’s nothing anybody can do about unless someone is willing to send in the tanks. Can the European Court of Human Rights order the tanks to roll?
