#AtoZChallenge2022: G is for Global Warming

The A to Z of Conspiracy Theories: G is for Global Warming

One of the biggest conspiracies out there today is the one that Global Warming is fake or somehow a grift to get more money out of us.

Honestly, I can't even start with these morons. Though they are not as bad as the Flat Earthers.

Human-caused climate change is a fact. We have too much data from too many different sources to argue this.

But yet the Climate Change deniers and conspiracy theorists are always shouting "follow the money!" or ... whatever the hell else they say. Likely blaming George Soros or the Clintons.

You want a conspiracy theory on climate change?  Ok I'll give you one.

Climate change is being caused by Demons.


Or maybe the Reptillians.  Let's look at both since both are active in the various worlds of NIGHT SHIFT.

Demons did it:  The thinking here is that as the world gets hotter resources begin to dry up, water is more scarce, food is more scarce, and horrible things like England exporting wine to France now become a reality, and it all points to evil intent.  

We know that the world's average temperatures have risen by about 1.8°F (1.0°C) since the 1800s.  At this rate, the world will be unsuitable for humans in a few more centuries.  But in a thousand years, it will be perfect for demons for a literal Hell on Earth!

Reptilians did it: Ok, Demons too far-fetched?  What about the Reptilians? They are after all reptiles and like the warmer weather.  Also if they are breeding human-reptile hybrids maybe it is because they can stay on Earth (or our dimension as some authors claim) and need to Terra-form the Earth to something more suited for their own liking.

Crazy?  Yeah, but no crazier than some of the things I have heard passed off as truth.

Now it is entirely possible that these ideas came to me from Doctor Who, in particular the 3rd Doctor era which was heavy on environmental themes.  The serial "The Daemons" even featured a large demonic-looking creature that could generate heat over vast stretches of land.  I am sure that somewhere along the way the Silurians or Sea-Devils even wanted to warm up the Earth a little for their return.

So next time someone comes at you with the idea that climate change is fake, turn back on them and say "oh it's not fake and the reptoids are all behind it!"  

The NIGHT SHIFT RPG is available from the Elf Lair Games website (hardcover) and from DriveThruRPG (PDF).

Unlike flat Earth at least the theory of demons or reptilians using global warming to terraform the planet has a certain kind of logic to it.

My conspiracy theory is that big corporations spread conspiracy theories like that to distract from the truth that they're interfering with stopping global warming to keep making big profits.

Quite a good satire for all those idiots..they sprout every day on internet claiming their false theories as the stark truths! How can we stop them from talking rubbish? Climate change is an urgent issue and we r doomed. Good u penned about this

I think its demons. Sounds about right.

"England exporting wine to France"

Is anyone in France actually DRINKING it? It's hard to believe any food or beverage from England could be exported anywhere in the world more fortunate in terms of cuisine (i.e., anywhere else).

Ha ha! The idea that reptiles would cause global warming on purpose because they like warmer weather is fabulous! (Insane, of course, but fabulous!)

Hahaha, I love your response! I´d definitely use that for people who claim that´s a hoax.
I´m loving your blog, I need to know about those conspiracies later.

So many ostriches in the world, sticking their heads in the sand. Wait, is that a conspiracy theory of sorts? Do ostriches even DO that beyond cartoons?!

The Hollow Earth book is a hoot. I looked up Raymond Bernard in Wikipedia because I was curious about that Ph.D. It was in education, not science.

I really expected this one to be Goat-sucker!

I've seen the idea that lizard people are doing it in a comic or cartoon, but never thought about demons. It's ridiculous and I love it.

It boggles my mind how some people don't believe in global warming. The facts are right in front of them! Hopefully people will start taking this seriously before it's too late.
