You start with large doses of Fear and add a few gallons of Guilt.
...Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign — well, fear and guilt — you’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing that.....That sets the table. Then you pour on the Accelerant (the Fake News) and keep that Fake News coming--by paying "scientists" to invent stuff.
...And so you’ve got the green movement creating stories that instill fear in the public. You’ve got the media echo chamber — fake news — repeating it over and over and over again to everybody that they’re killing their children, and then you’ve got the green politicians who are buying scientists with government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials, and then you’ve got the green businesses, the rent-seekers and the crony capitalists who are taking advantage of massive subsidies, huge tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their technologies to make a fortune on this, and then of course you’ve got the scientists who are willingly, they’re basically hooked on government grants....Yes, that means they lie for money. And that means we've all been ripped off, and WILL be ripped off for decades to come.
And the same BS-and-Grifter routine applies to "clean water" and "clean food" scams.
