Climate Cult Wants To Reign In Big Tech To Help Stop Climate Doom

Say, I wonder how they’re going to do this? If Big Tech doesn’t voluntarily do this, then what? Unsurprisingly, the screed doesn’t say. Don’t want to spook people, right?

Society Can’t Slow Climate Change Without Reining in Big Tech, New Report Warns

Any effort to curb global greenhouse gas emissions and stave off catastrophic warming is doomed to fail unless far more is done to address the “foundational” role Big Tech companies now play in exacerbating the climate crisis. That’s the conclusion of a new report released last week by the international environmental nonprofit Global Action Plan.

From amplifying conspiracy theories and misinformation to their increasingly massive energy footprint, the world’s biggest tech companies aren’t only making global warming worse, the report said, but pose “a systemic digital roadblock to effective climate action” by driving unsustainable consumerism, increasing political division and pushing society further away from democracy.

It’s certainly not the first time Big Tech has been thrust into the spotlight over its climate impacts. Just five companies—Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Meta—use as much electricity as the entire country of New Zealand, according to reporting from the Financial Times. And research shows that climate disinformation continues to flourish on the biggest social media platforms, including Twitter and TikTok, which experts say makes finding global consensus on climate policy a nearly impossible task.

In fact, experts warned that a blitz of disinformation during the COP27 global climate talks last month undermined the summit’s progress. And many climate activists were outraged after the U.N. conference ended without any official commitments to phase out, or even phase down, fossil fuels—something experts say must begin immediately to fulfill the Paris Agreement targets.

If you don’t like the arguments people are putting forward, then put forth better ones that support your assertion. Shutting down opposition just causes people to wonder why, and research it more. Of course, it’s tough to defend your position when the majority of people in the Climate Cult are utter hypocrites. Will these Warmists enlist the government to force tech companies to only allow one point of view? That sounds rather Fascistic, eh?

Further, a big part of the massive footprint is people streaming shows, movies, and videos. You can bet the youngsters will utterly refuse to cut their streaming down: will the hardcore cultists attempt to get government to limit streaming? How about reducing ads, interfering with economies?

“If Big Tech’s business model entirely relies on continued advertising growth, how can we collectively challenge over-consumption?” Hayes said. “And if that ad growth is delivered by an algorithmic design that systemically promotes divisive, conspiratorial, hateful content, how can we as a society possibly hope to unite to confront the climate crisis?”

Who stops the companies from advertising? Overall, though, the Cultists are Very Upset that people with Wrongthink are allowed to have their say. They just do not cotton to that, and want it stopped. That is their primary message. Their primary concern. Everything else is secondary.

“Since Musk’s takeover I have ramped down my own use of Twitter,” climate scientist Twila Moon told The Guardian. “Folks noticing a rise in climate denialism and disinformation is particularly worrying and I am concerned that it could slow climate action in ways that are devastating to economies, communities and health.”

So, make better arguments. I’m not familiar with her, so, I perused her Twitter feed, and, not seeing much of any arguments. And lots of fossil fueled travel. Cultists are authoritarians at heart.

    Now that the Nazi Zelensky has loudly proclaimed he intends to prohibit Christianity in the Ukraine I hope you realize why dowd & co. idolize the despot. He’s just like they are. First he closed opposition radio and TV, then opposition newspapers, arrested his political opponents including the guy he ran against (Mar-a-Largo anyone?) and now he wants to eliminate Christians. The corrupt money loving Jew boy is a chip off the old European block. Destroy everything, silence everyone, murder all resistance. Let’s give him another $80 billion! Why not? The feds already admit they can’t account for 70% of that money. That’s $56 billion of our cash now in Swiss accounts owned by corrupt Ukrainians, Hunter, democommies and 10% for The Big Guy.

    How long is America going to allow democrat corruption to rule this nation?

      Lucifer lies! But what’s new?

      KYIV, Ukraine — President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine called for lawmakers to prevent the branch of Orthodox Christianity that answers to Moscow from operating in Ukraine, taking aim at a powerful cultural force that Ukrainian officials accuse of abetting the Russian invasion.

      His administration will draft a law “making it impossible for religious organizations affiliated with centers of influence in the Russian Federation to operate in Ukraine,” Mr. Zelensky said late Thursday in his nightly video address. In addition, he directed the government to conduct an inquiry into the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and its ties to Moscow, “and, if necessary, to take measures provided for by law.”

    • Professor Hale says:

      Jeff idolizes Zelenski because the Democratic party tell him to. He has no independent thought. The Democratic party tell him to because of all the billions in kickbacks coming back from Ukraine and into Democratic party members accounts. It’s as simple as that. Democrats don’t care how many lives this war costs. Zelenski in power is their gravy train. If he falls, the corruptions of the Bidens, Kerrys, Clintons, Obamas, and Pelosis will be exposed.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The Nutty Perfesser typed: … idolizes Zelensky because the Democratic party tell to

        Actually, President Zelensky has many admirable qualities, don’t you think? Primarily he’s battling Trump’s best little buddy, Putin, (which is why tRumpists call President Zelensky a Nazi and grifter – der Perfesser does as he is told by the trumpian elites – he has no independent thoughts).

        Does the Perfesser have ANY evidence that US aid to Ukraine is kicking back to Democrats. No, he doesn’t. That lie was refuted, but the slimy Perfesser keeps spreading trumpian garbage like the good little water carrier he is. nuCons lie and spread mis- and disinformation. They never seek the truth.

        The Nutty Perfesser has become progressively nuttier as Trump’s future becomes more and more rocky.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        Do you believe that President Zelensky said he plans to prohibit christianity in Ukraine? That was the point, wasn’t it.

        • Professor Hale says:

          I don’t care what corrupt Nazis say. His corruption and open connections to Democratic party families and being a Nazi are plenty sufficient reason for me to want our country to not support him. I don’t need stories about how he eats babies or has been to Epstein island. I undetrstood why the old Democratic party supported racism, Jim Crow and the Klan. I don’t understand why the modern Democratic party supports and defends pedophiles and actual Nazis.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The Perfesser has been triggered and imploded!

            The claim was that President Zelensky was shutting down Christianity in Ukraine. That was shown to be false. The perfesser ends up yelping about the Klan, Epstein and pedophiles.

            Always a pleasure…

        • Dana says:

          From Wikipedia:

          About 67.3% of the population declared adherence to one of the Eastern Orthodox Churches (28.7% of the Kyiv Patriarchate, 23.4% state simply ‘Orthodox’ with no declaration as to which Patriarchate they belong to, 12.8% of the Moscow Patriarchate, 0.3% Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, and 1.9% other types of Orthodoxy

          So President Zelensky has, in effect, closed the churches for at least 12.8% of his populace, and undoubtedly more, given the large percentage who claimed to be Orthodox, but declined to specify to which patriarchate they belonged.

          Even President Roosevelt didn’t try to close the Lutheran churches during World War II, but doubtlessly some Shinto temples suffered as their adherents were put behind barbed wire.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            President Zelensky has, in effect, not close anything. He has proposed it.

            Are all the Russian Orthodox parishes disciples of Putin?

            For centuries the ancient Ukrainian branch of the church has been subordinate to the Russian Orthodox Church, based in Moscow. The leader of the Russian church, Patriarch Kirill, has strong ties to President Vladimir V. Putin, whose long tenure he has called “a miracle of God,” and has endorsed the invasion.

            But that branch of Orthodoxy is rapidly losing support, while many Ukrainians now adhere to a newer Orthodox church, based in Kyiv, created specifically to be independent and not answer to Moscow. There is little difference between the two churches in terms of religious practice or doctrine, but the divide between them on Ukraine and its identity relative to Russia is wide — and widening.

            NuConnies hate Ukraine (Biden) and love Putin (trump).

            Rimjob: President Zelensky has, in effect, not close(sic) anything.Au contraire, dumbfuck. Try to keep up.

            Zelensky sacked his reform-minded prime minister, most of his cabinet, prosecutor general, and many other top officials in March and April, stunning everyone. The timing couldn’t have been worse.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

            Dear Elwood:

            “NuConnies hate Ukraine (Biden) and love Putin (trump).”Tr

            Do you not understand that it is possible to dislike Zelensky and Putin???

            Or is that too subtle for you??

            BTW, when Trump was running things, he kept his little buddy in check.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Skeeter changes the subject!

            When it was shown he ‘mistyped’ about President Zelensky closing all christian churches, he goes back to early 2020 when President Zelensky WAS cleaning house of Ukrainian grifters.

            Nice try, Skeeter.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Give it up, Gramps. You’re losing.
            Rimjob, you’re out of your league do to a lack of comprehensive skills but keep hovering over that keyboard.

    Democommies hate Russia and love Ukraine. The democommies having once loved Russia when it was a communist state now hate it. The democommies now worship the gay leader of a Nazi supporting fascist state which reflects their goals in America. They are slime.

    I figures that an anti American anti Christian stooge like dowd would genuflect at the dick of a Nazi. dowd is nothing if not morally predictable. He always goes low.

    No hypocrisy here, though-they loved big tech as long as they were censoring conservative viewpoints….

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      No. Big Tech has been and still is a cesspool drowning the world in scheisse.

        Big Pharma, under which your company Galera falls, is even worse.
        They piss away investors money plus actually kill people without any consequence.
