In 1941, the U.S. government explained why increasing levels of CO2 would not have a significant impact on the climate:
IT WILL be news to many people that man, during his geologically brief existence on earth, has never known a “normal” climate. We are now at the tail end of an ice age and living in a period of crustal and climatic violence as great as any the earth has known. This is why we have to think so much about the weather. Such periods of revolution have occurred briefly several times in the history of the earth.
Much has been written about varying amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as a possible cause of glacial periods. The theory received a fatal blow when it was realized that carbon dioxide is very selective as to the wave lengths of radiant energy it will absorb, filtering out only such waves as even very minute quantities of water vapor dispose of anyway.
No probable Increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide could materially affect either the amount of insolation reaching the surface or the amount of terrestrial radiation lost to space.
The science since 194 hasn’t changed, only the politics.
The masses have been instructed to fear said trace gas, to demonize it and, in turn, to advance the ‘Net Zero’ suicide mission.
But understand, those occupying the higher echelons are laughing at you–as are the energy company bosses they control. And know that as your taxpayer dollar is being funneled into corrupt climate scheme after corrupt climate scheme–via powerful lobbying groups and amoral politicians–and as Americans wrestle and suffer with the consequences–i.e. record-high inflation–the likes of British Petroleum (BP)–those coiners of the term ‘carbon footprint’ btw–tripled their profits last year to $28b in a classic play of supply and demand.
The higher-ups know that catastrophic global boiling isn’t a genuine threat; rather, that it is merely a distracting narrative; a scary campfire story to keep the masses in check–a controlling stick; and a maleficent way to divert yet more money upward.
‘Do as we say, relinquish your possessions and prosperity otherwise the world will end.’
‘You will own nothing, and you will be happy,’ etc. etc.
CAGW is akin to a Grand Heist.
They (Central Banks) are driving the global population into serfdom via shortages and inflation. Their end goal is a two-tier system: the 1% and the 99% (bye-bye middle class). They want us laborers 100% dependent on their system, akin to slaves.
The way to fight this tyranny, as I see it, is to completely escape it (easier said than done, I get it). This, again to my mind, is best achieved by going off-grid and growing your own food etc. — i.e. removing yourself entirely from their controlling reach.
A stockpile of physical gold and silver would also be beneficial, as it would protect your wealth during what I perceive is an inevitable collapse. However, given the ever-tightening stranglehold they have around our finances (via taxation and inflation), I don’t know many who have any useful capital to invest into precious metals right now.
But gold, unlike fiat, has survived the test of time. It has been used for thousands upon thousands of years. Gold is God’s money, and nothing will change that.
The new system, whenever it’s rang in and whatever form it takes (likely a blockchain-based Central Bank Digital Currency with unparalleled surveillance/control), will still acknowledge gold as a crucial asset, potentially even a key underlying one. Why do you think governments have been acquiring such monstrous volumes of the metal in recent years?
Below are the five countries with the largest gold reserves–at least, these are the holdings they’re publicly divulging (as of 2022):
1. United States: 8,133.5 tons. During the height of the Bretton Woods system of international exchange (when the U.S. offered to house and protect other countries’ gold in exchange for dollars), it was reported that 95% of the entire world’s gold reserves lay in American vaults. Decades later, the U.S. still holds the most, with gold making up over 75% of its foreign reserves.
2. Germany: 3,359.1 tons. Germany keeps its gold reserves in three locales: the Deutsche Bundesbank in Frankfurt, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank branch in New York, and the Bank of England in London.
3. Italy: 2,451.8 tons. The eurozone crisis led to calls for Italy’s government to sell some of its gold reserves to raise funds, but no such plans ever materialized — again illustrating the asset’s value.
4. France: 2,436.5 tons.
5. Russia: 2,301.6 tons. Russia overtook China as the fifth-largest holder of the yellow metal in 2018. Russia’s increase in its gold stores was seen as an attempt to diversify beyond American investments.
Governments don’t want Pete down the street owning gold, which is one of the reasons the price is so heavily manipulated–held lower so as to look unattractive. It is also why you rarely hear of any gold tips and/or investment advice on mainstream market outlets. They. Don’t. Want. Us. Owning. It.
Gold has always outperformed the stock market, due mainly to the dollar simply being inflated away, but gold’s time to really shine is likely approaching. We’re potentially about to see the commodity’s true power as the current financial system goes through a tumultuous ‘reset’. Silver, platinum and palladium will also likely run, and even TPTB’s clandestine adoption of crypto could be rewarded. However, physical gold will always remain king, and for a myriad of reasons.
Central Banks of course know this, it being the main reason they’ve been increasing their reserves in recent years.
When gold does finally go, when ‘they’ inevitably lose control of the market, $5K-$10K an ounce (in relation to today’s dollar) isn’t blind hopium, it’s a probability. During this run-up (which will anti-correlate with a stock market collapse) anyone with a private hoard can sit comfortably in the knowledge that their wealth will be protected (after an initial sell-off, once the panic subsides).
That is, so long as the government doesn’t ban private ownership again…
Between 1933 to 1974 ‘Executive Order 6102’ made it a criminal offense for U.S. citizens to own or trade gold anywhere in the world. Exceptions were put in place for certain jewelry and collector’s coins, exceptions that even today have folk that I know storing gold only in the form of rings and bracelets etc. as a hedge against potential future government interference.
Putting precious metals to one side, getting off-grid and learning to successfully grow your own food should be a ‘preppers’ first port of call. They were mine — and they take time to hone: I uprooted my young family and emigrated from the UK to Portugal back in 2018, and I am still learning what feel like the basics of self-sufficiency even five years into my journey.
Protecting my lineage is the driver here. I have found no better meaning than fighting for the future prosperity of my children. And the messaging from the telescreens–reading between the lines–is clear: a system upheaval is being initiated, and not for the betterment of the citizens.
From harnessing my own energy and raising my own goats, to hoarding my own gold/silver coins and investing in crypto (namely XRP), I am trying to diversify my ‘survival portfolio’ in the hope that something sees me and family through what’s coming.
And move forward.
And keep moving forward, no matter the setbacks.
