"To understand the double-speak use of sustainable, we need to go back to Maurice Strong, a billionaire Canadian oilman and close friend of David Rockefeller, the man who played a central role back in the 1970s for the idea that man-made CO2 emissions were making the world unsustainable. Strong created the UN Environment Program, and in 1988, the UN Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) to exclusively study manmade CO2."
A "sustainable" world?
"The decision to demonize CO2, one of the most essential compounds to sustain all life, human and plant, is not random. As Prof. Richard Lindzen an MIT atmospheric physicist puts it, CO2 for different people has different attractions. After all, what is it? – it’s not a pollutant, it’s a product of every living creature’s breathing, it’s the product of all plant respiration, it is essential for plant life and photosynthesis, it’s a product of all industrial burning, it’s a product of driving – I mean, if you ever wanted a leverage point to control everything from exhalation to driving, this would be a dream. So it has a kind of fundamental attractiveness to bureaucratic mentality."
By mid 2020 the wording "climate lockdown" has been introduced; in early April 2020 a website dedicated to the topic, climatelockdown.com, has been registered. In line with Bill Gates who published the headline: "COVID-19 is awful. Climate change could be worse." and Deutsche Bank, which in a strategy paper from November 2020 mentions that: "A certain degree of eco-dictatorship will be necessary".
D. Sornette cites C. Scarre, an archaeologist from the Cambridge University and V. Scarborough, an archaeologist from the University of Cincinnati for his impression, that a decline in global temperature might be a factor for population reduction in past centuries:
“Similarly, the Akkadian empire in Mesopotamia, the Old Kingdom of Egypt, the Indus Valley civilization in India, and early societies in Palestine, Greece, and Crete all collapsed in a catastrophic drought and cooling of the atmosphere between 2300 and 2200 B.C.”

Carbon War Room
Sir Richard Branson has frequently called for geoengineering to combat climate change. He helped fund the Royal Society's inquiry into solar radiation management through his Carbon War Room "charity".
Geo engineering lobby
"What is really worrying is that the same small group working on high-risk technologies that will geoengineer the planet is also trying to engineer the discussion around international rules and regulations. We cannot put the fox in charge of the chicken coop."
"The eco-clique are lobbying for a huge injection of public funds into geoengineering research. They dominate virtually every inquiry into geoengineering. They are present in almost all of the expert deliberations. They have been the leading advisers to parliamentary and congressional inquiries and their views will, in all likelihood, dominate the deliberations of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as it grapples for the first time with the scientific and ethical tangle that is climate engineering," said Clive Hamilton, professor of Public Ethics at the Australian National University, in a Guardian blog.
