WEF: The next apocalypse – after Covid-19 back to the climate crisis

Davos Agenda 21 shows: Climate change should serve as the next “pandemic”

Covid-19 is losing its horror: the population’s resistance to seemingly dictatorial government measures is growing; these are not good prerequisites for the “great reset”. That is why the virtual meeting of the World Economic Forum focused on climate change as the “next pandemic”.

There is silence in Davos this year: Because of Covid-19, the meeting of the global elites for the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 2021 took place virtually. On Sunday, January 24th, WEF founder Klaus Schwab opened this year’s meeting, and until January 29th the rich and powerful discussed their future visions for the world in video conferences.

One word can be found in almost every one of their speeches: multilateralism. Every invited politician called for global cooperation, and for joint action in the crisis. In truth, it is about a political agenda that to some still seems like a wild conspiracy theory. Since the publication of his book “Covid-19: The Great Reset” and the massive criticism that followed, Schwab has styled himself as a victim of conspiracy theorists: they allegedly interpret his words maliciously and incorrectly. The accusation that he is planning a totalitarian state and the reshaping of society would be wrong – the “Great Reset” should only create a “better world”.

Thanks to crisis in socialism

In the seemingly propagandistic YouTube video “What is the Great Reset?” it shows what this “better world” should look like. For Schwab and his colleagues, the fact is that there must be no return to the “old normal”. Capitalism as we know it is dead. Once the corona apocalypse is over, the climate apocalypse comes back to the fore. Both are intended to provide evidence that the existing system is “wrong” and that a “great reset” is necessary.

There is nothing new about Schwab’s vision: At its core, it is about establishing a socialist eco-dictatorship. This could perhaps be dismissed as the dream of an old man in his ivory tower – if his totalitarian fantasies of upheaval were not reflected daily in the politics of the world’s governments.

Schwab himself explained in his book that the Corona crisis offers opportunities for “long-term changes” that rulers should not miss. And Davos Agenda 21 shows one thing all too clearly: This crisis mode should be maintained. While the powerful and well-heeled speakers at the WEF present vaccination as a great hope in dire need, reference is made again and again to the well-known threat of climate change. If Covid-19 loses its horror, a replacement must obviously be found quickly in order to be able to further justify the restrictions on freedom of citizens.

Next pandemic: climate crisis?

Politicians like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau even make a daring connection between virus and climate protection. As in the Corona crisis, tough measures are necessary in the fight against climate change. According to Trudeau, there will be no “business as usual” after surviving the pandemic: Instead, sustainability must be sought in all areas – so that the world is no longer so vulnerable in the future. He refers, for example, to the dependence on global supply chains, but warns in the same breath against regional protectionism.

“This is the hour of multilateralism,” he concludes. This can be seen very clearly with the Covid vaccination: The “fair distribution” of the vaccines should not simply be a question of money. A foretaste of completely different redistribution fantasies of those in power? In any case, he advocates strengthening international organizations such as the World Health Organization and the World Trade Organization.

The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, affirmed Trudeau’s climate alarmism: If we don’t protect nature, the next pandemic is just around the corner, she claimed, for example. On Monday she announced the absolute eco-planned economy for the EU: “This is the European Green Deal, the EU’s new growth strategy.” In the future, private investments are to be directed towards sustainability through regulations and financial incentives. A quick look at the history books shows that socialism does not generally go hand in hand with growth.

Climate figurehead Greta Thunberg became even clearer in a usual reproachful speech: The 18-year-old believes that the climate crisis can no longer be solved within “the current system” .

Climate change as a business

On Thursday evening, Bill Gates also spoke up. The billionaire is constantly criticized for his investments in pharmaceutical companies, among other things. Shortly before the start of the corona pandemic, for example, he invested in Biontech, of all things – the company that is now generating billions in sales thanks to the emergency approval of the Biontech Pfizer vaccine.

Even in the alleged fight against climate change, he can obviously hear the tills ringing. According to the Paris Agreement, “climate neutrality” must be achieved by 2050: greenhouse gas emissions must therefore be massively reduced. In many industries this is an impossibility. Bill Gates suggests a kind of indulgence trade as a solution: If companies continue to produce greenhouse gases, they can “offset” them. To do this, they would have to finance climate-friendly products and projects, for example.
