Why are Davos Speakers so Angry?

“Could it be the cost of jet fuel or because no one believes their lies?”

I am still thinking about how angry the speakers at Davos this past week were. I watched elitist “experts” without any scientific credentials opine about CO2, methane, and greenhouse gasses. With a religious zeal they homolyzed a homogenized environmental Armageddon. And think about the keynote speakers Mr. Occidental Petroleum Al Gore and Mr. John Heinz Ketchup Kerry. Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem called THE LADIES where he talked about how certain elite men ascend to authoritative assertiveness. One memorable line goes, “and they showed me the way to promotion and pay and I learned about women from her.” A strong woman can certainly make a man stronger, but a strong rich woman can make a weak man dangerous.

There is the old adage—and I will clean it up, that there are only 5 ways to become rich: 1. Win the lottery. 2. Inherit money. 3. Work like hell and build a business, fail several times—keep working and finally get it right and then sell your little empire and retire. 4. If you are a man be a great lover of women. 5. If you are a woman be a great lover of men. In this age of “wokeness,” I am sure there are other more modern iterations of the last two.

Neither John Heinz Kerry nor Al Occidental Gore are self-made men. They have never created anything. They aren’t entrepreneurs, scientists, or creatively engaged in the arena of ideas. They simply repeat what “feels good” to them. Emotionalism, mass confirmation bias, and scientism have replaced rationality. They fill the holes in their hearts where God should be with the religion of humanistic materialism—some would call it Marxism. They are intellectual “rent seekers” who repeat dogmas in an “echo chamber. G.K. Chesterton described such angry people this way:

Christ Troupis Book

“The madman is not the man who has lost his reason, but the man who has lost everything except his reason.

Let’s look at the record of The environmental movement that started with Rachel Carson’s publishing of SILENT RAIN in 1963:

DDT did not cause bird eggs to crack and banning DDT caused millions of people in poor countries to die because crop yields fell exponentially.

1970 Oil was predicted to be gone in 10 years. There are more known untapped oil and natural gas reserves today than at any other time in history.

1980 Acid Rain will destroy crops—crop yields for most crops have gone up 20% or more because of hybridization of seeds and new fertilizer technologies, and the recapturing of desert lands using genetically engineered seeds that require less water.

1990 The depletion of the Ozone layer in 10 years will destroy our modern existence. The sun still shines in Garden City and the grass is still growing on the golf course.

1997 Jarred Diamond argued in GUNS GERMS AND STEELE that people of European descent through colonization and enslavement subjugated their enemies to create wealth. Is that what happened when the Steam Engine and the cotton gin and the internal combustion engine were first deployed alongside an economic system that lifted more people out of the “bonds of grinding poverty” than at any time in the 3500-year history of modern man?

2000 Icecaps will be gone in 10 years. The “Road To The Sun” at Glacier National Park still doesn’t open in most years until July—just like it has always been.

2000 Y2K Will cause our economic and political systems to crumble. Maybe if you invest in “Crypto”. Sam Bankman-Fried is a big supporter of environmentalist causes—with other people’s money.

2019 A Political Pandemic that never reached the threshold of being a pandemic was an “existential threat” to mankind. Only if government bureaucrats and experts who have only read SILENT RAIN and GUNS GERMS AND STEEL are still running the show!

 I believe the reason so many progressive liberals are angry is because they have been wrong so many times. They are afraid that WE THE PEOPLE have finally caught on. I believe that Democrats haven’t been this angry since Republicans freed the slaves!

When are you going to learn to proofread and catch your numerous false memories? Your fifth paragraph opens with: “Let’s look at the record of The environmental movement that started with Rachel Carson’s publishing of SILENT RAIN in 1963:” You previously used that incorrect title for her 1962 book Silent Spring in an article on October 2, 2022 titled Climate Change and Government Credibility. I corrected you in a comment.

Your tenth paragraph refers to the title of Jared Diamond’s 1997 book as incorrectly being Guns, Germs, and Steele. In your thirteenth paragraph you correctly referred to the last word as Steel. And your eleventh paragraph refers to the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park as instead being called the “Road to the Sun.”

Thank you, Richard, for your attention to detail. Would you like to be my editor? So, I followed your recommendations on your first edit and you are still critical of my post this time? Finally, I use spell check because I am a lousy speller. Sometimes spell check misses homophones and I use that term in its’ literary context. Most of all thanks for reading my articles. —-jml. PS Is there anything of a factual nature in my article that you care to dispute?

When you Google “Road to the Sun” it takes you to “Going to the Sun Road – NPS”.

Time for this, again: “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

—Theodore Roosevelt
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910″

Excellent article! I also believe that the globalists realize that their lies are becoming very obvious. Concerning DDT, when the EPA in 1970 ban the chlorinated hydrocarbons including DDT they did so despite months of testimony and over 9,000 pages that mostly supporting DDT. Malaria which kills millions yearly was nearly wiped out before the ban. It was used to kill the Pine Tree Beetles and Tussock Moth killing hard wood forests. The first EPA administrator was William Ruchelshaus, who came from the World Wildlife Fund. He made a decision to ban DDT and all chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides without attending one hearing or apparently reading any of the testimony. With the stoke of a pen, he killed more people than Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Lenin combined. I know this history as I worked for an agriculture company whose income was largely from a corn root worm insecticide. When the income dropped, I was forced to get another job. I was fortunate to get a job in the Twin Falls area. The Green New Deal is killing our economy. Global warming/climate change is a hoax to control all the people on the planet. The small amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere at only 410 ppm would represent only 41 seats in a 100,000 seat football stadium representing the earth’s atmosphere. The plan is to fundamentally transform America into another Socialist/Marxist hellhole like China, Russia, Cuba or Venezuela. The Davos speakers are angry because they are walking naked like Hans Christian Andersen’s emporer’s new clothes as many are exposing their lies and deceptions.
