Right-wing populists' denial of climate How cash is becoming a thing of the past 5 months ago   02:17

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence, right-wing populists around the world say that global warming is a massive lie perpetrated by mainstream politicians and media. And even in environmentally conscious Germany, the far-right is trying to shift the discussion.

Denying global warming requires that one must first deny the physical science of the greenhouse effect:
Electromagnetic radiation includes heat waves known as Infrared Radiation (IR) and visible light. Both are absorbed by the surface of the Earth and converted to kinetic energy (heat). This heat is re-emitted back outward as thermal radiation aka IR. A significant amount of this IR is reabsorbed by the denser atmospheric gases such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, etcetera (not nitrogen and oxygen). This excites their molecular structure and the resulting kinetic energy re-emits IR. Life on Earth is made possible by the capturing of enough IR to keep the biosphere warm enough to sustain life. As the heavier molecules in the atmosphere increase, the amount of IR also increases.
Note: Without the greenhouse effect, the Earth would be a giant frozen snowball. [Google: Earth frozen snowball.]

Accepted scientific wisdom? 😂 that is only Newtonian physics. Even dark matter is still just an unproven theory. Climate change is at the lowest rank “unproven hypothesis” please use correct terminology instead of politically driven emotive adjectives to push a political agenda. The world has already had of Germanic “right think” in the 1930’s.
👉🏻 Considering that the RSS & UAH satellite data shows no statically temperature change. And, historical data back the 1930’s disagrees with the claims and the CSRIO can show no empirical evidence for climate change we are definitely still in unproven hypothesis territory not empirical fact.

Globalist hoax.
When has renewable been the standard by which you buy anything? I have a renewable cell phone to sell you, it's a can and a string, do you want it?

Global warming is a globalist scam to gain control
Climate change is a wealth distribution scheme.
YourPowerBack Productions
yes we should definitely trust the germans
Damn these comments are bad. Climate change is happening 100%.

Scurry back to The Heritage Foundation, little fossil fuel trolls.

Apologists rather than deniers.The building of cities and removal of vegetation also increases global temperature as the earth's atmosphere is heated from the earth outwards.

`You guys equate weather with climate change, you are a bunch of kooks with Al Gore as proof.
I bought a canoe to paddle down the streets of New York last year but there must have been a drought so I sold the canoe.
I think I will buy a parka, seems more likely a Mini-Ice Age coming.
Every model and every prediction made by alarmist for the last 30 years, has been wrong Every legitimate chart and graph of every legitimate study of the Earth's past climate shows nothing that would point to CO2 having any effect on the climate, it lags behind climate change in fact. What are we talkin about something that represents .00 4% of the atmosphere? Water creates more of a greenhouse effect and represents more of the atmosphere. Seems to me alarmist don't really have a clue how miniscule and inconsequential we are to this planet

If climate change was real Gore Clinton and Obama would be more militant and trying to stop coal trucks with their own bodies
Trump: "Make America Venus Again!"...and the rest of the planet, too.
Guilherme SSTrüeb
Nuclear Power is the key.
It is not just climate change, Germany could become energy independent. This is good, right? Is freedom for the Germans. Not depending on foreign oil is a mater of national security.
That's funny cuz I've seen hundreds of scientist who don't accept it
People profiting from their assumed ignorance. Nothing new.
The AFD is totally right about climate change
Watch out for far right bot trolls!!!

How cash is becoming a thing of the past Right-wing populists' denial of climate 5 months ago   42:26

Cashless payments are on the rise. They are fast, easy and convenient. Worldwide, cashless transactions have become the norm.

But Germany’s central bank and government are still clinging on to cash. Can they stop the move towards a cashless society? Our documentary shows who is behind the worldwide anti-cash lobby. Banks want to get rid of coins and bills for cost reasons, and politicians think less cash will cut the rug out from under criminals and terrorists. Central bankers want to abolish cash because it would make it easier for them to enforce negative interest rates. And digital payment companies like Paypal or Visa simply want to profit from money transactions and collect as much financial data about consumers as they can. Their aim is to gain complete control over our buying behavior. For example, the "Better than Cash Alliance" in New York is supported by financial corporations such as Visa or Mastercard. They say the more people that are integrated into the international financial system, the more growth and jobs it will promote. But as our financial behavior becomes more and more transparent, states are also using payment data to find out more about us. The ordinary citizen’s view of cash as a store of value, independent of third party interests, is being increasingly ignored. But for them, cash is and will remain a symbol of freedom.
