Climate Change Racketeering |

Climate Change Racketeering

One of the favorite models of accomplishing organized crime payoffs is the ancient racketeering model. Racketeering steps are always the same:

1. Create a problem — real or illusioned — that is where propaganda comes in

2. Say you will solve the problem — in exchange for money and control

3. If that is not enough bribe, coerce

4. Cycle through steps 1 through 3 over and over and over

If you think this sounds like the climate change “settled science” scam, you are correct.
