The Climate Cult Is Destroying Liberal Democracy

Energy must be cheap and abundant to achieve societal stability, advance prosperity, and build the military power necessary to contain and defeat our enemies. The climate cult stands in the way of this.

Liberal democracy (classical liberalism, meaning individual freedom, limits on state power, and a capitalist economy), is by far the most successful system for organizing a society that humanity has ever created.

Unfortunately, even the most successful systems and civilizations aren’t immune to the damage caused by bad ideas and radical ideologies.

And one such ideology is the climate cult.

Now, I’m not talking about those who believe climate change is real and that we must try to become more efficient and must protect the environment. Climate change is certainly taking place, and protecting the environment is something that nearly everyone agrees on. The thing is, increased efficiency, lower per capita emissions, and better environmental protection have already been happening in the Western world for decades through market-driven processes, often led by the energy sector.

What I’m talking about are those who have used the climate issue as a cover for advancing a radical anti-capitalist, anti-democratic, neo-communist agenda, an agenda that not only weakens us here at home, but tilts the balance of power in favour of our adversaries. They ignore the market-driven progress that has already been made, because they don’t actually want to solve the issue, they want to use it to advance an extremist worldview and impose it on the rest of us.

In Canada, we are seeing the impact of eco-communist Steven Guilbeault being elevated to a position of power, as he and Trudeau have deliberately sought to lower our standard of living, crush the Western Canadian energy sector, and push more oil & gas market share to our adversaries.

Unfortunately, some in the United States are heading in that same mistaken direction.

As reported by Reuters, the Biden Administration is pausing approval of new LNG export terminals, bowing to pressure from far-left climate activists:

“U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday paused approvals for pending and future applications to export liquefied natural gas (LNG)from new projects, a move cheered by climate activists that could delay decisions on new plants until after the Nov. 5 election.

The Department of Energy (DOE) will conduct a review during the pause that will look at the economic and environmental impacts of projects seeking approval to export LNG to Europe and Asia where the fuel is in hot demand.”

To say this is a horrendous move would be a massive understatement. The fact that it’s already being celebrated in Russia says it all, given that Russia will benefit economically and militarily from the decision..

This is also incredibly hypocritical coming from the Biden Administration. Biden and his political team have – often justifiably – slammed Donald Trump for advancing a foreign policy agenda that gives Russia almost everything it wants. Trump’s attempt to scuttle a possible deal to strengthen the U.S.-Mexico border and pass aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan is indeed despicable.

However, Biden erases much of his credibility when he kneecaps his own energy sector at a time when America’s democratic allies are desperate for LNG from the United States to replace Russian supplies.

Economic power and military power are closely connected, meaning anything that gives Russia more market share and drives up the price of LNG also strengthens Russia’s military potential and puts Ukraine in an even worse position – exactly what Biden claims he opposes.

And so, we can see how doing the bidding of the climate cult is harmful not only within liberal democracies like Canada and the United States, but is also harmful outside our countries because it advances the interests of our enemies. It’s no coincidence that countries like Russia, China, and Iran are glad to support the eco-radical movement in the Western world, because they know that movement plays right into their hands.

In order to ensure the ongoing survival of liberal democracy, our leaders must be able to ensure ongoing growth in prosperity and a strong national defence. That is only possible if our economy is strong, and that is only possible if energy is affordable and abundant. The climate cult stands against affordable and abundant energy, and thus stands against liberal democracy itself.
