Earth Hour: A Despicable Hoax
“Earth Hour” special by Tony Cartalucci,

– Nothing embodies the corporate hijacked environmental movement more
than the despicable hoax that is “Earth Hour.” Once a year, we are
bombarded worldwide by a feel-good advertising campaign on TV, radio,
billboards, fliers, in the newspaper and in every other conceivable way
for an event that involves turning off the lights for one hour per
year, to “take a stand against climate change.”

Not only has science failed to prove that anthropogenic climate change is happening – to the extent proponents like the White House’s John Holdren have relabeled “Global Warming” to “Global Climate Change” to the now most ambiguous version, “Global Climate Disruption,” but the evidence suggests that the “scientists” peddling this theory have defrauded the public again and again. Worth noting, is that John Holdren himself is a creature of Harvard’s Belfer Center, which is named in fact, after corrupt oil tycoon Robert Belfer. Much of the policy coming out of the Belfer Center ends up in front of delegates attending the very fraudulent and ineffective climate change summits held, most recently in Copenhagen and Cancun.
When we look at say, Earth Hour’s corporate sponsors, or the WWF’s corporate sponsors (including Fortune 500 corporations (page 24, .pdf) and here), or the myriad of banksters and oilmen that steer climate policy
centers like Harvard’s Belfer Center we should realize that not only
has big oil and the rest of the corporations defiling the planet
hijacked environmentalism along with multitudes of well-intentioned
activists, but these corporate interests are using it to defile the
planet and its population further, only now with a perceived moral
Could we expect anything less from an organization so large, with so many corporate affiliations?
proposed solutions of course, involve greater consolidations of power
in the government’s hands to solve these problems – the solutions being
carbon taxes that get paid directly to private bankers,
rules, regulations and laws that only megalithic corporations can
afford to comply with thus shutting out competition, and a laundry list
of other non-effectual solutions that only empower the very
corporations that have caused real, verifiable environmental damage.

When you consider Deutsche is one of the “leading participants” in the carbon credit market, then it makes sense.
about real environmental hazards? How about the unfettered nuclear
industry, depleted uranium being dumped over the ever expanding theaters
of conflict the West is engaged in, or the genetically modified plants
and animals that are displacing and corrupting the natural species
that inhabit this planet? Or how about the ineffective, logistical
petroleum intensive mega-agricultural industry, poisonous
herbicides and pesticides dumped onto our food by companies like
Monsanto, free-trade that sees tons of diesel fuel burned to bring
plastic trinkets from Chinese factories to America’s shores, and the
list goes on ad infinitum.
Real solutions generally don’t
involve corporations or government, in fact, as a necessity must
exclude them. The marriage between corporate interests and government
regulations should be something all of us can agree on, regardless of
where we sit on the political spectrum.
Real solutions involve a
real education in science, technology, design, and manufacturing. This
empowers people in all levels of society to accurately assess problems
and apply local solutions. This, coupled with modern manufacturing
technology enables more to be done on a local level, short-circuiting
the petroleum intensive logistical chains WWF sponsors like Walmart couldn’t live without.
farming on a local level coupled with local farmers’ markets
eliminates entirely the need for Monsanto poison, fertilizers, and
genetically modified franken-crops, along with the replacement of the
petroleum intensive logistical networks that distribute big-agri’s
In fact, when you think about it, almost all of these
real solutions involve real community and local action. These are not
solutions that involve policies, taxes, and regulations, but rather
technology, education, constructive, pragmatic, technical solutions
that not only would make our environment more livable, but make our
local economies and communities more viable and self-sufficient. The
catch is, and the reason why this isn’t being done, you will notice
that none of these activities require WWF sponsors like Walmart, Nike,
IBM, Toyota, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, HSBC, Citi, IKEA, Nokia, etc.
it make sense then, to see why real problems and their solutions have
become the target of hijackers like the corporate conglomeration that
is the WWF? Does it make sense to see them offering “alternative”
centralized, corporate dependent solutions that replace local activism?
Please investigate for yourself, WWF’s corporate sponsors and see how many of them end up on this list, “Naming Names,” which exposes the corporations and special interests that keep us at perpetual war and on the edge of financial ruin.
we honestly think that these corporations care about the responsible
stewardship of the planet? Do they care about people? Do they care about
the environment? Are they not at the center of the most horrific
scandals, atrocities, and wars of our age? If you care about your
environment, do yourself a favor, keep your lights on during the next
“Earth Hour”, and do some reading on how you can empower yourself, your
community, and become independent from the petroleum hungry, world
ravaging corporations that are promoting their version of
“environmentalism” through hijacked organizations like the WWF. They
have created in their own image a human-hating Malthusian religion of
servile obedience to a world government that “promises” to fix the problems they themselves have created.
be smarter than this, let’s look past the slick public relations stunt
that is “Earth Hour,” and look around locally at real solutions. Think
and act locally. You know what’s wrong with your hometown and most
likely you know how to fix it. Most importantly you and your neighbors
can see it is in your best interest to do so, and it doesn’t require
charlatans like Al Gore to hold your hand, paying him carbon taxes while you do it.
