Catastrophising Climate Change

Labelling every weather event as a portent of catastrophic climate change is just part of the process of elites taking more control.

Imagine facing days or even weeks without electricity.

It wouldn't take long for society to fracture as access to the most basic needs would be severely limited.

That's what happened in South Australia in 2016. Some communities were blacked out for nearly five days. The strain showed very early as credit cards, fuel pumps and household appliances ceased to work.

Now, Victorians are facing a similar prospect as their electricity supply suffered catastrophic damage. Falling trees severed supply lines, and high winds collapsed towers, crippling the state's power network.

Even the power generators were told to shut down or shed load to prevent making the problems worse.

It's terrible stuff, but nothing we haven't seen in this country before.

However, it will only be a matter of time before this natural disaster becomes another 'climate change catastrophe warning'.

That will, in turn, prompt further demands for more wind and solar, further jeopardising Australia's first-world status.
