Don’t be fooled: the elitist left will stop at nothing to push their radical agenda.
No amount of death or destruction will ever cause these journalists to pause and second-guess their priorities; it’s all or nothing with the elitist left.
Similar to how we learned that ‘white supremacy’ was the real virus infecting millions of Americans, not the coronavirus, we’re learning that the biggest victim of nuclear war is not the millions of innocent civilians, it’s the climate.
You read that correctly: The left is more concerned about how the climate will be effected by nuclear war than the innocent civilians who will be forced to live through the violence.
The far-left magazine owned by Apple founder Steve Jobs’s billionaire widow Laurene Powell Jobs is drawing relentless online mockery for a 1,200-word essay by Robinson Meyer warning that if the Russian invasion of Ukraine were to spiral into a nuclear war, it “would be worse for the climate than any energy policy that Donald Trump ever proposed.”
“If you are worried about rapid, catastrophic changes to the planet’s climate, then you must be worried about nuclear war,” writes Meyer. “That is because, on top of killing tens of millions of people, even a relatively “minor” exchange of nuclear weapons would wreck the planet’s climate in enormous and long-lasting ways.”
Meyer lays out a parade of perhaps unintended consequences of killing millions, writing that use of nuclear weapons would also “produce winds equal to those in a Category 5 hurricane,” ignite “urban and wildland forest fires,” and send megatons of carbon into the atmosphere that would raise global temperatures.
In the dystopian world that would no doubt follow a nuclear holocaust, Meyer worries that survivors might continue to rely on fossil fuels, making “the permanent consequences for the climate system … even worse.”
“The ruins of our postwar society would be poorer, and fossil reserves are the easiest energy sources to locate,” Meyer writes. “Renewables, wind turbines, and other decarbonization technology, meanwhile, require secure factories, highly educated engineers, and complicated global networks of trade and exchange.”
Twitter users were in total shock by the obvious propaganda being published by the Atlantic. It was truly a jaw-dropping story.
The elitist Left has gone truly insane. That’s not hyperbole, it’s an observation. https://t.co/IiSnf1aXHw

This story proves beyond the shadow of a doubt where empathy truly lies in partisan politics today….
… and it’s not on the left.
