The fantasy of halting climate change hinges on overlooking one, great, salient fact:
When the top tier of leadership at institutions such as the Pentagon & Congress, not only Chevron and the Council on Foreign Relations, et cetera, belong to a Dominion Theology cult and believe in literal Armageddon and that a miracle paradise will ‘appear’ (reserved only to themselves), there ain’t shit going to actually happen to stop climate change folks…
^ a noble exercise in futility
Past climate change conferences, such as the Rio Earth Summit and Copenhagen Summit, have seen a single phenomena in reality; lip service to halting carbon warming at 2 degrees Celsius while actually moving towards increasing carbon warming to 6 degrees Celsius, where human life as we know it, cannot be sustained.
What do a preponderance of the most powerful people in the western democracies, those actually making policy, believe?
“Dispensational premillennialists hold that the second coming of Christ, and subsequent establishment of the millennial kingdom, is to be preceded by a seven-year-long period known as the “Tribulation,” the earthly activity of the Antichrist as well as the outpouring of God’s wrath on mankind”
So what sort of people prefer God’s wrath on humanity to reducing carbon because an “outpouring of God’s wrath on mankind” is a good thing (while making money hand over fist), to clean up the planet’s morally degenerate populations (anyone who isn’t a ‘Dominion Theology‘ adherent belonging to the Doug Coe cult) with acts of God? One only need look at The Family Research Council’s Pentagon poster-child for our rapidly eroding geopolitical ‘climate’, former special operations commando General Jerry Boykin:
“He has described himself as a warrior in the kingdom of God and invited others to join with him in fighting for the United States through repentance, prayer and the exercise of faith in God.
“He has praised the leadership of President Bush … ‘George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United States,’ Boykin told an Oregon congregation. ‘He was appointed by God.'”
After most of mankind is dead, generals similar to Boykin at the Pentagon in DC (and at NATO in Brussels), together with corporate personalities like General James Jones of Chevron, a former NATO Supreme Commander, and too many politicians, judges, et cetera to count, believe they will live under the rule of a returned Jesus in a world miraculously repaired and populated with only ‘believers’ like themselves…
^ Hooray for Jesus! (several billion dead later)

“Constellis Holdings’ Board of Directors includes: Red McCombs (Chairman), former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, former White House Chief Counsel Jack Quinn, Admiral Bobby Inman (Ret.), Russ Robinson, Jason DeYonker, Dean Bosacki and Triple Canopy co-founder Tom Katis … “This combination will provide our customers with the best possible service at the most competitive price. We share a commitment to flawless delivery of mission critical services. We share a bond with our employees, who are mostly decorated veterans who continue to serve their country in the private sector. We share a willingness to do the toughest jobs in support of the efforts to make our world a better place.” The combined ownership group will employ more than 6,000 of the industry’s most experienced and best-trained employees and will be led by CEO Craig Nixon”
In case you don’t grasp the significance of former Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft (Academi nee Blackwater ‘ethics adviser’) in the above list of Dominion Theology personalities, his ‘Assemblies of God’ church has traveling teachers instructing ‘chosen’ in advanced theology, including teaching “Muslims are the Children of Satan” (a course Sarah Palin had been enrolled in, prior to her dumping the Assemblies of God for even more extreme Christian Dominion organizations.)
