    KDave got a reaction from Derv in Free speech   
    Censorship appears to signal that the argument is lost and there is nothing left but to shut down the discussion. It seems to be admitting dishonesty as the truth does not need censorship to survive, it thrives under scrutiny. A lie does not. The people calling for censorship then perhaps have something to hide from scrutiny, be it their fragile and inaccurate world view, perhaps the lie of an ego or persona that has been built up over time. It is admitting that something about your ideas or self is false and weak. It is not a good thing.
    I am enjoying the various platforms that have sprung up in response to the constant degradation of free speech on the established platforms. Dissenter is worth a look and very entertaining as it allows you to comment on any webpage through the extension. This means articles that have 'comments closed' or such, can now be commented on through the app, the comments are linked to the webpage, literally every page on the internet can now be a forum. There is no moderation. I have been visiting the BBC website for the first time in years just to read the dissenter comments on some the lunatic leftist articles the BBC produces, it is most amusing and refreshing.

    When I bring up the issue of taxes here people say that is just the cost of a good society or some other BS. People want free health service, free childcare and free school meals, bennies for all, someone has to pay for it. 
    Claw as much of that tax back from the scum in government as possible. Use every allowance. Claim everything back, every penny of tax on every drop of fuel for your car (now a business asset), ect.

    I bought a few Zimbabwe notes a couple of years ago to remind me of the inherent value of all currency, paying a few quid for the lot, including 100 trillion dollar notes. I gave a few away as gifts oops. 
    I think a lot of people bought them for the novelty and now with bitcoin taking off there is now a larger crowd joining in on the principle. They are not particularly rare or nice to look at but they are a very important part of recent monetary history, a lesson is there for all to see. I wonder if bitcoin was around back then would it have acted as an exchange mechanism in the country; everything from US dollars to flakes of gold found in the local rivers were being used instead of zimb blats.

    The climate changes throughout history but in the last 40 years or so it has become the fanatical belief of many that mankind are the cause. This idea is a useful tool for social control and as a means to raise money for government via tax. It is also delusion and arrogance to think we are the cause. 
    Humanity are polluting the oceans with plastics. Mankind are increasing the concentration of various gasses in the atmosphere, specifically Co2 and Methane among others.
    Mankind are not contributing to the warming of the planet. If we set off quite a few nuclear weapons at once it would be possible to generate enough particulate cover to create winter like conditions for quite a few years maybe. We don't have the same power to warm the planet, not until we can control the Sun. 
    Co2 is the bogey man they use to tax us, because it is easy to measure and can be demonstrated in a lab that Co2 is a 'greenhouse' gas. But is doesn't add up.
     

    Co2 is not linked to the warming of the planet. It is linked to increased yield from crops and faster growing trees.
    Climate change is real, it always has been with or without us. People have to pull up a graph from the last 50 years to find any temperature that supports global warming, and its in the tenth of a percent. Its a complete myth. I have seen more work to prove that the earth is cooling down due to reduced output from the Sun than anything else, with the solar minimum expected in 2030. People will be hungry.

    If CO2 is the issue as we are told, why then not tackle the biggest butterfly on the planet that is producing the most? Instead it's the developed west that is chastised and told to stop being wealthy. For the greater good, we must impoverish ourselves and give up our strength, while others do the opposite?
    We are being nudged by someone, for some purpose that is not in our interest. Most of the protestors in London are good people that are guilty of being too trusting of those in charge, it's a common fault, they have accepted the narrative without question and now they can't seem to resist the opportunity for selfish altruism. The myth perpetuates itself against all of the evidence, though raising the issue in the way they have will encourage many more people to question the narrative and work it out for themselves. Perhaps it will come right in time and the truth will out.

    @FrozenMojito i have not investigated the points you make - true or otherwise. i will concede all of them, primarily b/c they would take time to explore and they aren't important. From the bits i have heard Piers Corbyn say i have not caught him saying something wrong. This is a single personality point - you imply he is a bit dodgy - even if Piers Corbyn were a total charlatan it wouldn't matter. He is not the keystone of Climate Realism as i will call it. i have not heard him say anything original to me and it does not change the documented fact that man-made climate change is a hoax - it is part of the de-population agenda coming out of globalist think-tanks like the Club of Rome.
    Not a single computer model of the Climate Alarmists has come true. $billions have been poured into this. The seas have not risen. If you plug 'arctic polar ice expanding' into duckduckgo.com - you will see Arctic and Antarctic ice caps are expanding - they were supposed to be ice free - they are expanding - it is too much for the thought controllers to hide but they will keep fudging and lie about something else. Ignore the facts listen to Greta Thunberg an autistic kid who is being used and mind controlled. Take notice of Extinction Rebellion blocking the road - the world is going to end in 12 years like we were going to be underwater several years ago, whilst Al Gore has his $8.9 million beachfront property in California. We are going to be in deep sh1t in 12 years time if the Grand Solar Minimum really bites.
    The idea is to downsize the world population - to kill people off, to have them breeding less. None of the people of Europe are breeding at replacement rates. The sperm count of men in so called developed countries is falling off a cliff but you won't hear about that much if at all. Get the population count down - then get each person who survives outside the elite existing on as little as possible. This is sustainable development.

    This is borderline child abuse. She has been brainwashed to become a talking head for the climate change lobby, utterly disgusting. 
    Co2 is the metric that is used to judge a nations virtue in the cult of climate change, so lets compare. China produces enough CO2 for 100 UK's. Why is she being told to call out the UK and not China? Is this some kind of sick joke? 
    The message seems to be that they wish to prevent further use of fossil fuels in the UK. Why? We should use more. We have hundreds of years of anthracite coal left in the ground and have enough shale reserves to become energy independent like the US, why should we not use our resources? Why should we impoverish ourselves while other nations, China, the US are using their natural resources to benefit them? Our government is in ever growing need of additional income and there has never been a more widely accepted tax increase than one for the goal of saving the planet. People seem content to be impoverished from every which way and don't even see it, instead they think they are virtuous and are helping their children. The opposite is true.

    The data from the authorities is wrong. You recognise that. This is the key issue. They are lying to us. Deliberate barefaced lies.
    They keep on and on with it and it is all wrong. That is the key point - they said the poles would be ice free - they say the ice is decreasing - it is not it is increasing. There were stories the seas would rise and the coastal cities would be underwater. There are now crazy claims the sea beds are sinking to explain why there are no rising sea levels. Their projections are not just a bit wrong they are completely wrong. We saw record cold in North America this winter - how come this happened if there is global warming? We see record cold weather in Australia in April. How come if there is global warming? What we are told by the official channels are lies or lies repeated by talking heads.
    You touch on an important point - if you want to get a grant you need to confirm the man made climate change narrative. If you want to keep your position or get promoted you need to be seen to be reciting the climate change narrative. The guy in the video - the Head of Sustainability - his little empire relies on the climate change narrative. Anyone calling it out will be ostrocised and removed. The media  pushes out this narrative - the so called educational establishments push out the narrative - Listen how the muppet in the video says - he wants to influence decision makers locally, nationally and internationally. They want to brainwash the young and lock them into the climate change narrative. There will be a whole raft of younger people who will never believe this is a scam - if the Grand Solar Minimum really bites hard - they will be crying about global warming when they are starving to death due to cold - drought - wet induced crop failures. i say they will deserve it, i have no time for these idiots.

    Nigel Farage and the Brexit party. A master stroke of branding. I can't help but think the party is an establishment safety valve, I think that is what UKIP was initially, the intention that it will change nothing and disappear after Brexit is resolved one way or another. UKIP are now under attack in the media while the only thing I have heard about the Brexit party is how well they are doing in the polls, fairly clear what is going on.
    The only reason I can think of doing this is to buy time. If UKIP gained a lot of votes now, it would legitimise them for the national elections. However, the Brexit party are by the excellent branding, a single issue party - the ground taken from UKIP has at the same time freed them from it and if taken this may be the opportunity and time they need to establish as a legitimate anti-establishment party at the next election?
