"Global Warming" never happened, so the eco-saviors changed the name to "Climate Change."
Since that became stale and nobody outside the religion is buying it, now it's back to that tired old buzz phrase "Sustainable Development."
The Rio+20 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro attracted 45,300 delegates from 180 nations. Imagine the cost, never mind the carbon footprint on the planet they are all there to save. Most delegates are public sector-funded bureaucrats, representing "us." Private sector attends these junkets to solicit taxpayer subsidy commitments from "us" for their hypedup green products that can't make it on their own merits.
Some of us remember when the same pseudoscientists scheming for research grants were colluding on fears of planet cooling.
When it comes to paychecks and professorships, the pseudos will give you the bad news science they preconditioned you to hear. After all, they wouldn't get more funding unless they made dire predictions, then devise magic solutions in search of new enviro-problems. No surprise that it was quite easy to ego-stroke the do-gooder grant money foundations and politicians of yesteryears, as they were only too happy to exchange taxpayers dollars for gaiasaviour votes.
Global warming/cooling fear mongering is nothing new. There are hundreds of past mainstream media articles, dating back to 1912.
