July 6, 2021 (WND News Center) – Many, many warnings – and deadlines – for extremists to “save the planet” by imposing radical green agendas have come and gone.

Now comes the New York Times, with the newest from columnist Farhad Manjoo, who blared “Democrats have a year to save the planet.”

He, according to the report in Newsbusters, “screeched” that “this could be the treat turning point – an opportunity for the United States to finally take grand action to curb the worst effects of a climate barreling toward catastrophe.”

But similar warnings, from no less than Al Gore, have come and gone – without “catastrophe.”

Manjoo claimed, “A century from now, our descendants may look back on the next year or so as a hinge in history. … Picture the saga as it unfolds across the central gallery of the Biden presidential library: In the jubilant aftermath of a pandemic, a president campaigns tirelessly for an ambitious set of investments to mitigate the next great threat. Congress, shaken into action by a restive citizenry, somehow rises to the occasion, overcoming just enough partisan resistance to adopt a breakthrough environmental agenda. The global effort to curb planet-warming emissions had been foundering, but suddenly there was new hope. The earth may be parched and sweltering, but all is not lost, for Americans finally got in the game.”

He warns without the enactment of his vision, “Despite recognizing the epic stakes in the fight against climate change, the president goes too small, capitulates too easily. Congress loses itself in petty, shortsighted rancor. The people, fearing sacrifices in our heedless indulgence, shrink from necessary change. This is a dark, dead end in the Biden library: A once mighty nation is served its toughest challenge yet, and it whiffs.”

Noted Newsbusters, “Does The New York Times ever get tired of pushing content that reeks of eco-extremism? Apparently not.”

Former Sen. John Kerry recently claimed that the world has only more nine more years to “avert the worst consequences” of the climate crisis.

“[T]he scientists told us three years ago we had 12 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis. We are now three years gone, so we have nine years left,” he told CBS “This Morning” reporter Ben Tracy in an interview recently, reported Breitbart News.

“There’s no room for B.S. anymore,” Kerry said. “There’s no faking it on this one.”

Kerry’s warnings of a 2030 deadline for the planet is based on interpretations of a special report in 2018 by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The Guardian newspaper headlined its article on the report “We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, warns U.N.” But even the report’s supporters acknowledge it doesn’t say that. It concludes that if governments want to limit global warming to 1 degree Fahrenheit above today’s levels, they must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about half by 2030 and to net zero by around midcentury.

But then, in 1992, at the Rio Climate Summit, activists said the world had only 10 years to get global warming under control.

The tipping-point warning isn’t new, as British scientist Philip Stott shows in a summary cited by Marc Morano in his book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.”

“In essence, the Earth has been given a 10-year survival warning regularly for the last fifty or so years. We have been serially doomed,” Stott said. “Our post-modern period of climate change angst can probably be traced back to the late-1960s, if not earlier. By 1973, and the ‘global cooling’ scare, it was in full swing, with predictions of the imminent collapse of the world within ten to twenty years, exacerbated by the impacts of a nuclear winter.”

Kerry’s warnings seemed to lose some of their impact because of his continuing travel by private jet. In his last year as secretary of state, he boasted of traveling more than 1 million miles over three years.

Spewing an estimated 302 tons of carbon, he spent more time flying in those three years than the average American would in 50 years, noted Daniel Greenfield in a FrontPage Magazine column. Americans would have to burn 100 tons of coal to match Kerry’s CO2 emissions, he said.

Kerry justified his choice of travel after flying in his private jet to Iceland to receive an environmental award.

“It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” he boasted after a reporter confronted him with the issue.

Another famous environmentalist jetsetter, Bill Gates, has “pleaded guilty” to his climate sins.

“It’s true that my carbon footprint is absurdly high. For a long time I have felt guilty about this,” the Microsoft billionaire said in an interview reported a week ago by the London Guardian.

Not many people seem to be excited about the latest climate-change prediction by Prince Charles.

More than two years ago, he claimed world leaders have only 18 months to act.

“I am firmly of the view that the next 18 months will decide our ability to keep climate change to survivable levels and to restore nature to the equilibrium we need for our survival,” he said in 2019.

But it’s not his first warning of doom. In 2009, he declared the “tipping point” would come in 100 months, a little more than eight years. He then extended the deadline in 2015, noted Climate Depot.

In 2019, LifePetitions launched a similar petition on behalf of Jeff Younger (the father) and his son James, asking for support and for the Texas state authorities to intervene in a unbelievable case in which the Dallas courts keep flip-flopping over which parent has parental rights and, ultimately, whether or not James must be forced to live as a girl and suffer the trauma of so-called gender "transitioning," as his mom believes he is a girl.

Incredibly, we now seem to be back at square one.

Jeff Younger currently has a gag order put on him, which prohibits him to speak out in defense of his son. But, because he has recently decided to ignore that order, to save his son from irreversible surgery, this brave Dad now faces possible arrest.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which does two things: 1) Supports Jeff Younger (again, the Dad) in his fight to save his son, James, from so-called gender "transitioning;" and, 2) Calls on Texas' Attorney General to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Mr. Younger.

CLICK HERE to WATCH the latest LifeSite interview with Jeff Younger. Hear about the latest developments with his son, as well as the real dangers of gender reassignment surgery and other “transititioning” methods.

Currently, even though he shares 50/50 parental rights to James, which has allowed him to stop the chemical castration of his son, Jeff’s ex-wife recently sued to have full parental rights and to "give her sole medical and psychological decision making."

Jeff is also being threatened with jail time from the gag order, which he believes was intentionally done to stop him from helping pass legislation in Texas to ban sex-change surgeries for minors.

Jeff says that the gag order "prohibits me from speaking on all manner of political topics. And I’m not even allowed to tell you in that gag order whether my son’s a boy or girl."

But Jeff is speaking out, no matter what, because of the real danger that his son is in if he undergoes "transition" surgery.

Indeed, so-called gender "transitions" present many unsafe effects, some desired, some undesired, though all dangerous for one's physical and mental health.

Puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones have not been proven safe. For example, the FDA has NOT approved Lupron and GnRH analogues for use in blocking puberty.

Risks associated with these pharmaceuticals include: low bone density, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.

And, additional risks and potential harms include: 

For Males: Stunting of penile and testicular growth, sexual dysfunction, prevention of spermatogenesis, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.

For Females: A menopause-like state, blockade of normal breast development, decreased blood flow to vagina and vulva, sexual dysfunction, thinning of vaginal epithelium, vaginal atrophy, prevention of menses/ovulation, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.

In other words, these medications can sterilize and cause medical harm to vulnerable, confused children.

And, the stunning part about this: studies show that 85% of gender confused children eventually become comfortable with the sex of their bodies.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports Jeff Younger, a Texas Dad, who is fighting to prevent his son, James, from being "turned into a girl." At the same time, we appeal to Texas State Attorney General, to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Jeff.

Thank you!

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF PUSHING GENDER IDEOLOGY ON CHILDREN:

Many eminent psychiatrists are now speaking against the faulty notion that sex is fluid and a matter of choice. In particular, they are concerned about the welfare of children and young people in this regard.

Dr Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, who has researched the occurrence of gender dysphoria for 40 years, has stated that the notion of gender fluidity "is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges". [See more below.]

And, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is definite about the promotion of transgenderism as being harmful public policy:

"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived, either male or female…Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents…” [Read more below.]

The United Nations issued such warnings in 1982, and it declared a “10-year tipping point” in 1989.

Elizabeth May of the Canadian Green Party said in 2009, “We have hours” to prevent disaster.

And then-U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown claimed that year there were only 50 days left to “save world.”

Also in 2009, NASA’s James Hansen declared President Obama only “has four years to save Earth.”

In 1982, U.N. official Mostafa Tolba said “within a couple decades” it would happen.

Just at the beginning of the last Congress, newcomer Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made the wild claim that unless global warming is addressed, the world has only 12 years left.

“And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” she said.

That’s not likely if history is a reliable guide, according to Morano, who points to similar warnings dating back 150 years.

He quotes an MIT professor who said: “As early as 1864 George Perkins Marsh, sometimes said to be the father of American ecology, warned that the earth was ‘fast becoming an unfit home for its ‘noblest inhabitant,’ and that unless men changed their ways it would be reduced ‘to such a condition of impoverished productiveness, of shattered surface, of climatic excess, as to threaten the depravation, barbarism, and perhaps even extinction of the species’.”

Morano cited British scientist Philip Stott saying the earth “has been given a 10-year survival warning regularly for the last 50 or so years. We have been serially doomed.”

Ocasio-Cortez’ statement:

NASA warned Barack Obama in 2009 that he “had four years to save the world.”

“But in 2012, the U.N. gave Obama and planet Earth another four year reprieve,” Morano said.

Former Vice President Al Gore said in 2006 the world had just 12 years.

Former Colorado Sen. Tim Wirth, a Democrat, said 2012 was Obama’s “last window of opportunity” to get it right.

Others have pushed the tipping out further into the future. “Michael Mann weighed in with his 2036 Mayan calendar type deadline. … Other global warming activists chose 2047 as the key date. … Finding no date agreement, 20 governments chose 2030 as the scary deadline,” the report noted.

Reuters said more than 100 million people “will die and global economic growth will be cut by 3.2 percent of GDP by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said.”
