In 1941, the U.S. government explained why increasing levels of CO2 would not have a significant impact on the climate:
IT WILL be news to many people that man, during his geo- logically brief existence on earth, has never known a “normal” climate. We are now at the tail end of an ice age and living in a period of crustal and climatic violence as great as any the earth has known. This is why we have to think so much about the weather. Such periods of revolution have occurred briefly several times in the history of the earth.
Much has been written about varying amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as a possible cause of glacial periods. The theory received a fatal blow when it was realized that carbon dioxide is very selective as to the wave lengths of radiant energy it will absorb, filtering out only such waves as even very minute quantities of water vapor dispose of anyway. No probable Increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide could materially affect either the amount of insolation reaching the surface or the amount of terrestrial radiation lost to space.
The science hasn’t changed since 1941, only the politics.
And while you Climate Alarmists continue to demonize said trace atmospheric gas (CO2) and blindly advance the Net Zero suicide mission, please note that the energy companies are laughing at you, right in your pugnacious little faces.
Because while your (taxpayer) money is being funneled into corrupt climate scheme after corrupt climate scheme after corrupt climate scheme, via powerful lobbying groups and amoral politicians, and as Americans wrestle and suffer with the consequences, i.e. record-high inflation, just know that BP –those coiners of the term ‘carbon footprint’ btw– tripled their profits last quarter to $8.5bn, making for profits totaling $14.7bn this year to date.
‘They’ know that ‘global warming’ isn’t real; rather, it is a powerfully distractive narrative, a scary campfire story to keep the masses in check, a controlling stick, and a maleficent way to divert yet more money ‘upward’: Do as we say. Relinquish all of your possessions and whatever capital you have left otherwise the world will end. AGW is part of a Grand Heist, and they’re even telling us straight: You will own nothing, and you will be happy.
‘They’ (Central Banks) are driving the global population into serfdom, via shortages and inflation. Their end goal is a two-tier system, the 1% and the 99% (bye-bye middle class). They want us laborers 100% dependent on the system, akin to slaves.
The way to combat this is to escape their systems (easier said than done). This, at least to my mind, is best achieved by going off-grid and growing your own food — i.e. completely detaching yourself from their controlling grip.
Accruing a horde of physical gold and silver would be beneficial, as it would protect your wealth during the coming collapse, but given the ever-tightening stranglehold they have on an individuals finances (via taxes and inflation), I don’t know many who have any useful capital to throw into precious metals right now.
The aforementioned endeavors aren’t mutually exclusive, of course. Forging a self-sufficient community with its own gold reserve is probably the ideal bet. Trust is of course key. As is a high level of secrecy and/or security.
Gold, unlike fiat, has survived the test of time; it has been used for thousands upon thousands of years; gold is God’s money and nothing will change that. ‘Their’ new system, whenever it is rang in and whatever form it takes (likely a Central Bank Digital Currency with the unparalleled control that brings), will still acknowledge gold as a crucial asset, potentially the key underlying one. Why do you think governments have been acquiring such monstrous volumes of the stuff over the years?
As of March 2022, these are the five countries with the largest gold reserves–at least, this is what they’re willing to admit they hold (data courtesy of investopedia.com):
1. United States: 8,133.5 tons. During the height of the Bretton Woods system of international exchange (when the U.S. offered to house and protect other countries’ gold in exchange for dollars), it was reported that 95% of the entire world’s gold reserves lay in American vaults. Decades later, the U.S. still holds the most, with gold making up over 75% of its foreign reserves.
2. Germany: 3,359.1 tons. Germany keeps its gold reserves in three locales: the Deutsche Bundesbank in Frankfurt, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank branch in New York, and the Bank of England in London.
3. Italy: 2,451.8 tons. The eurozone crisis led to calls for Italy’s government to sell some of its gold reserves to raise funds, but no such plans ever materialized — again illustrating the asset’s value.
4. France: 2,436.5 tons.
5. Russia: 2,301.6 tons. Russia overtook China as the fifth-largest holder of the yellow metal in 2018. Russia’s increase in its gold stores was seen as an attempt to diversify beyond American investments.
Governments don’t want Pete down the street owning gold, which is one of the reasons the price is so heavily manipulated–held lower so as to look unattractive. It is also why you rarely hear of any gold tips and/or investment advice on mainstream market outlets. They. Don’t. Want. Us. Owning. It.
Gold has always outperformed the stock market, due mainly to the dollar simply being inflated away, but its time to really shine is likely approaching. We’re potentially about to see the true power of gold as the current financial system goes through a tumultuous ‘reset’ and rebuild. Silver, platinum and palladium will also ‘run’, as will many other commodities, and even ‘their’ clandestine adoption of crypto could be rewarded. However, physical gold will always remain ‘the daddy’ for a myriad of different reasons.
Central Banks know this, of course, and it is the main reason they’ve been increasing their reserves in recent years.
When gold does finally go, when ‘they’ inevitably lose control of the market, $5K-$10K an ounce (in relation to today’s dollar) isn’t hopium, it’s a probability. During this run-up (which will anti-correlate with a stock market collapse) anyone with a private horde will do very well–if they get their timing right; but at worst, it will still protect their wealth–even after the mania phase subsides.
So long as ‘they’ don’t ban private ownership again, that is…
Between 1933 to 1974, ‘Executive Order 6102’ made it a criminal offense for U.S. citizens to own or trade gold anywhere in the world, with exceptions for some jewelry and collector’s coins. These exceptions have turned some modern gold-lovers into jewel-freaks — I know of people that only store gold in the form of rings and bracelets, etc. as a further hedge against government interference.
Putting precious metals to one side, though, getting off-grid and learning to successfully grow your own food (no small tasks) should be a ‘preppers’ first port of call. They were mine. And I’m still wrestling with both even four years into my journey.
Protecting my lineage is the driver. There is no better meaning than fighting for the future prosperity of my children. To achieve this, I’m open to looking into any and all options: from growing my own corn, to hording my own gold and silver coins. Start small. And build. And keep moving forward, no matter the setbacks.
