The best part about all of this is that in the time since President Trump's election the voices of climate alarm have reached entirely new levels of hysteria. It's just that it seems that they aren't scaring anybody any more.

Climate Cult Marches in New York and elsewhere on 21st September: the ill-informed and the ill-intentioned will call for more destruction

Cornwall Alliance
Climate policies such as the subsidising of renewable energy are destructive. They destroy lives in the developing world by raising the price of food. They destroy development prospects by raising the price of energy.

Climate alarm campaigners destroy morale in the young and other vulnerable groups by raising the spectre of imminent doom. They destroy educational ideals by turning classrooms into indoctrination centres. They destroy childhood innocence by demanding 'action' by the young, and using them as their political tools.
Some campaigners are ill-intentioned because of their hatred of society. The hard left, the deep greens, the bigoted and the malevolent. The climate scare merely gives them a new platform for their poisons.

Some are surely innocents who want to good. They have heard that our CO2 is disrupting the climate and driving us towards disaster, and some may even think the disaster is already underway when they hear claims that droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other harmful phenomena are much worse than they used to be.  They are too easily led.  They are being taken advantage of.

It would be a whole lot healthier if we had marches and protests against what Paul Driessen has called the 'climate change scientist-government-environmentalist-industrialist climate complex'

Not a very snappy label, but as he notes,this 'complex' is 'well funded and powerful. But it is also arrogant and dishonest, and its assertions are so far removed from reality that they can no longer survive scrutiny and challenge.'

'The time has come to end its attempt to control our lives, livelihoods, liberties, living standards, and life spans.'

Amen to that.

Notes added 22 September 2014   A sensible chap call Alex Epstein had his very own counterflow march in New York:

Here is another glimpse into his experiences there:

Here is an example of a child being used as a political weapon on the march in New York:

And another example of this exploitation of kids:

If you really want insight into just about anything at all, get a statistician to take a look at it.  Here are some insights from Matt Briggs who took a look at the march in New York, and tried to engage with some of the marchers:  Basically, he found a lot of people who did not really know what they were supporting, but came along anyway.

For the hard-left (and billionaires) at the march, see:

Note added 24 September 2014 Report from the San Francisco Oakland rally on 21 Sep (hat-tip WUWT) The hard-left dominated this event.  How sad to see such a spectacle in the land of the free! Lots of picture here:  For example:

and 'Children were encouraged to hang out in the protest’s kid-friendly zone, where they could draw their own signs promoting “revolution.”'
