Psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson rebuked the woke globalist peddlers of climate doom in a fiery video essay on his YouTube channel.
“Have you all noticed that food has become much more expensive?” Peterson asked in an Aug. 15 video. “That shelter has become much more expensive? That energy is more expensive? That many consumer goods are simply unavailable?”
The video was titled, “Back Off, Oh Masters of the Universe.” Peterson went on to explain that life is more difficult because of the so-called “energy transition,” advanced by those Peterson called believers in an “environmental apocalypse.”
Peterson vowed to resist a global fear campaign aimed at stripping people of freedom and making life more expensive and more difficult. “Leave us alone, you centralizers of power. You worshippers of Gaia. You sacrificers of the wealth and property of others. You would-be planetary savers. You Machivellian pretenders and virtue-signallers, objecting to power, all the while you gather it around you madly.”
“Leave us alone,” Peterson added for emphasis.
“Peddlers of environmental doom have shown their true totalitarian colours,” Peterson wrote in the headline of the original Aug. 15 article in The Telegraph that his video was based on.
In the video, Peterson continued his call for resistance:
“We will not advance without resistance through the straits of your enforced privation. We will not allow you to steal and destroy the energy that makes our lives bearable and that produces our food and shelter and housing and the sporadic delights of modern life, just to address your existential terror, particularly when it will fail to do so in any case.”
Peterson gave an alternative vision to the left’s green utopian fantasy, placing emphasis on economic growth.
“I learned that the fastest and most certain pathway forward to the future we all want and need — peaceful, prosperous, beautiful — is through the economic elevation of the absolutely poor,” he said.“Make the poor rich, and the planet will improve. Or at least get out of their way while they try to make themselves rich. Make the poor poorer, and this is the concrete plan, remember, and things will get worse. Perhaps worse beyond imagining.”
Politicians, celebrities and the liberal media have repeatedly fearmongered on climate change over the past few years while not living up to their own words. For example, State Department Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry said at the Petersberg Climate Dialogue in July that “We all have to be able to reduce the emissions. We have to accelerate the transition. We’re behind.”
That same month, Fox News revealed that Kerry’s private jet made a total of 48 trips and emitted an estimated 715,886 pounds of 325 metric tons of carbon.
