You’d think that after decades of apocalyptic predictions that never happened, even people who play pretend for a living would catch on and be a little more circumspect about stuff like this.
But you’d only think that if you started from the presumption that most people aren’t morons, which would really make you a moron as well.
Left-wing politicians have woken up to the fact that the coronavirus pandemic “would be a terrible crisis to waste,” in the words of Hillary Clinton. Now a group of wealthy Hollywood stars is also capitalizing on the crisis to push a sweeping climate change agenda.
Celebrities including Robert De Niro, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, and Joaquin Phoenix have signed their names to an editorial published Wednesday in France’s largest newspaper, Le Monde, demanding a total overhaul of economies around the world in the name of saving the environment and fighting global warming.
“The Covid-19 pandemic is a tragedy. This crisis, however, has an upside in giving us the chance to examine what is essential,” the editorial says. “The ongoing ecological catastrophe is a ‘meta-crisis’: the massive extinction of life on Earth is no longer in doubt, and all indicators point to a direct existential threat. Unlike a pandemic, however serious it may be, it’s a question of a global ecological collapse whose effects will be immeasurable.”
The article, titled “No to a Return to Normal,” was co-authored by actress Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau, who both wrote a similar article in Le Monde in 2018, in which they warned that a massive extinction event was currently underway.
Their new article argues that it is “unthinkable to ‘go back to normal’” following the coronavirus pandemic.
“Consumerism has led us to deny the value of life itself: that of plants, that of animals, and that of a large number of human beings. Pollution, climate change, and the destruction of natural spaces has brought the world to a breaking point,” they wrote.
“For these reasons, along with growing social inequalities, we believe it is unthinkable to ‘go back to normal.’”
Oh wow, an astrophysicist, I’m totally impressed.
Did he become a cow fart expert during in-depth studies of Uranus?
Somewhere between “monkeypeople who couldn’t figure out the wheel are your exact equals in every way” and “a man becomes a woman if he cuts his dick off and puts on a dress,” I sorta stopped taking seriously anything someone with a degree in the formerly-Western world says, especially in fields where deviating from the (((party line))) has serious consequences.
These people are just grifters and frauds who churn out thesaurus-laden gibberish that the vermin in the lower zoos then turn into cults that act as surrogates for the families and communities they would’ve had if our countries weren’t constantly subverted by Jews.
Other signatories include actors Adam Driver, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Jeremy Irons, and Willem Dafoe.
Oscar-winning filmmakers Alfonso Cuaron, Spike Jonze, Pedro Almodovar, and Alejandro G. Inarritu also signed the editorial.
Filmmaker Michael Moore recently said in his podcast that the coronavirus is earth’s slap in our collective face, adding that the pandemic is nature “trying to tell our species to back off, slow down, and change your ways.”
Yeah, that’s totally how it works.
Mommy Gaia is mad because of capitalism or something, so those of us who aren’t celebrities have to just live like peasants with TVs to make her happy again.
That’s real science right there.
Man, I hate these people.
