‘Climate science’ priest issues death threat

Citizens Electoral Council activists last week presented British Royal envoy and high priest of the carbon cult, Prof. Hans Schellnhuber, with a “carbon friendly” rope—a hangman’s noose—to signify the actual intent of his crusade to “decarbonise” the world economy. The Australian, and Schellnhuber himself later squealed that this constituted a “death threat”.

Citizens Electoral Council and LaRouche Youth Movement (LYM) activist Glen Isherwood had interrupted Prof. Schellnhuber’s public lecture at Melbourne University on 12th July to offer him the carbon-friendly rope. Mr Isherwood explained afterwards that “the carbon-friendly rope was a metaphor for the clear agenda behind the fraud of climate change: to reduce the world’s population.”

Prof. Schellnhuber himself had emphasised that this is the agenda, when he told a 13th March, 2009 pre-meeting of the Copenhagen Climate Change summit of his intent to reduce the world’s population. After lying that unless all fossil fuel and nuclear power consumption were shut down immediately, the Earth’s temperature would rise by 9°F soon, he declared:

“In a cynical way, it’s a triumph for science, because at last we have stabilised something—namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below one billion people.”

So who is it who has actually issued a death threat?

Weeks after the March 2009 meeting, Schellnhuber had a Bertrand Russell moment. Schellnhuber’s Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) press release on the beginning of the Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability, hosted by Prince Charles at his St. James Palace in late May 2009, chose to quote the PIK head proudly proclaiming that he saw his work as in the tradition of Bertrand Russell.

Russell was also an advocate for reducing the world’s population. He wrote in a 1952 work, The Impact of Science on Society:

“[B]ad times, you may say, are exceptional, and can be dealt with by exceptional methods. This has been more or less true during the honeymoon period of industrialism, but it will not remain true unless the increase of population can be enormously diminished. At present the population of the world is increasing at about 58,000 per diem. War, so far, has had no very great effect on this increase, which continued throughout each of the world wars. … War … has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. … The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of that? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s.”

After Mr Isherwood was denied the opportunity to present Prof. Schellnhuber with his gift, Schellnhuber felt forced to justify his 2004 acceptance of a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), by Queen Elizabeth II. If the CBE weren’t a crucial issue, why did he feel compelled to raise it?
