Greenpeace’s climate action at New Zealand’s parliament failed to finger the blame at the primary cause of what is, in fact, planet-wide ecological collapse. Consequently their mono-causal presentation of the climate crisis, which is part of a much broader set of colliding crises, leads to oversimplified and dangerous solutions. Snoopman, Iggy Swind and Sophia Bigg-Storm find that Kermit the Puppet and his Muppet friends have empathized with a Woolly Mammoth that escaped from a climate camp, because nobody would listen to his warning that Monopoly Capitalism is whammy cause of all human-made environmental catastrophes. It turns out that a Smart Green Economy is a cover-story that hides the construction of hi-tech dystopian super-states. (Contains satirical particulates. 20 minute read).

Mono-causal argument misleads membership
At dawn on Thursday 27 June 2015, four brave Greenpeace volunteers abseiled down the front of the New Zealand economy’s parliament buildings to focus attention on the climate change issue. They unfurled a banner, featuring an image of the many-hatted prime minister, John Key, and a caption that read: “Cut pollution, create jobs? Yeah nah.”
After initially being reasonably open-minded about the action, ‘at the end of the day’, the Extreme Media deflected from the climate issue to security. In the New Zealand economy’s two main six o’clock television broadcasts, known colloquially by the brainwashed population as ‘the news’, the reporters of OneNews’ and 3News’ emphasized the breach of security in their lead stories. By doing so, these media missionaries behaved like submissive school prefects armed with microphones. OneNews’ Katie Bradford described the abseiling feat as “a stunt”, “a chilly dawn raid”, and “an attack”, while 3News reporter Tova O’Brien adopted a similar affectation of neutrality to claim Greenpeace’s action went “sideways” because it was overtaken by the breach of security issue.
For this, the Extreme Media deserves to be ridiculed with satirical cartoons for presenting what is, in fact, the logical fallacy of diversionary argument by way of a trivial objection, as the author of Attacking Faulty Reasoning Professor T. Edward Damer might readily point out.
Furthermore, it was the New Zealand government that capitulated to the terror-sponsoring French state after it had sent 13 secret agents to New Zealand in Operation Satanique (Satanic) to attach two bombs to Greenpeace’s Pacific Ocean flagship, the Rainbow Warrior. Indeed, the United Nations brokered a ‘compensation’ sum of $13 million for the French state’s terrorist attack after two of the terrorists were repatriated to France, and, in effect, this meant the world officially condoned terrorism.
Greenpeace also has itself to blame. For one thing, it took down it’s only post from its website.
But, the main reason for the Extreme News Media’s diversion to the trivial breach of security objections is because, essentially, Greenpeace had nothing new to say. Greenpeace spokesman Nathan Argent stated that the action was intended to pressure the government “to put in place a real climate action plan now.” He claimed the government had not enacted a single piece of legislation to reduce emissions.
Argent also argued that a climate action plan could create many tens of thousands of jobs that would be a multi-billion dollar boost to the economy. He asserted this would take pollution out of the economy and build a smarter, safer, healthier New Zealand.
Here, we sketch why Greenpeace failed to present a new-inspiring narrative. We also outline a major flaw in Greenpeace’s argument from which springs solutions that will ironically result in the construction of a dystopian sci-fi-esque world – a project that is already underway.
Unfortunately, Greenpeace, like that of 350.org, Generation Zero, and many other non-government organizations that campaign on the climate crisis, promotes a mono-causal view of climate change. The mono-causal position holds that pollution from industrial emissions, ‘fossil’ fuel vehicle fumes and burning-off forests are the sole cause of climate change. While these factors are serious, this view is bunk.
The planet’s climate is changing due to many causes, including: deforestation (over millennia); desertification (massive soil erosion); species extinction (including ‘fisheries’ collapse); geo-engineering weather modification programs; industrial agriculture, pollution and planned obsolescence; resource destruction caused by war; imperial and corporate driven migration to mega-cities; the cult of consumerism; and the whammy of all human-causes, hierarchical patriarchies (foremost among them is Monopoly Capitalism).
Another way of stating these causes would be: greed and the cult of world domination, both related to ego gratification and cultivation of psychopaths in the planet’s ruling families (as is made clear in David Livingstone’s excellent book, Terrorism and the Illuminati: A Three Thousand Year History). A further cause is also solar activity and the planet’s trajectory in the galaxy, which we cannot do anything about, so we shall focus on the human causes. (See section below: The Woolly Mammoth in the Climate Changing Room).
Greenpeace presents its over-simplistic mono-causal climate change narrative because its membership and the people they are seeking to influence are middle class. A mono-causal presentation necessarily leads to over-simplistic, and we argue, dangerous ‘solutions’.
