The eugenics origins of climate alarmism

With economic insecurities weighing high, most Australian voters rejected political parties calling for “strong climate action”. But were voters better informed, they would reject the false left vs right wing dichotomy, which is the elephant under the rug with respect to climate politics. A history lesson shows that upon advice from avowed population control advocate Sir Crispin Tickell, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was the first world leader to voice alarm over global warming in 1988. In the same year, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This coordinated launch of the IPCC was not driven by science, but by eugenics.

Eugenics, the “race science” made infamous by Adolf Hitler, has long been the policy of the British Crown and ruling families. Sir Crispin Tickell GCMG KCVO FZS himself was born into one of those families, with his cousin Sir Julian Huxley the President of the British Eugenics Society in 1959-62. Renamed the Galton Institute in 1989, the Society now claims to have “disassociated itself completely from any interest in the theory and practice of eugenics”, but it’s patently clear eugenics and population control is still the goal of the British establishment.

Sir Julian Huxley co-founded the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and former Nazi SS officer Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. Tickell and cousin Huxley are both direct descendants of Thomas Henry Huxley, a.k.a. “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his aggressive advocacy of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Darwin’s natural selection theory of evolution inspired his younger half-cousin Francis Galton, who founded eugenics. In essence, the family structures, charities, and healthcare progress of human society interfere with natural selection, allowing the weak to survive and procreate, so eugenics used forced sterilisation and other measures to synthetically replicate natural selection to ensure the fitness of the gene pool. Galton proclaimed that “Jews are parasites”, that “the worth of an individual should be calculated at birth, by his class”, and that the “unfit” should simply be eliminated; he was knighted by King Edward VII in 1909 for founding eugenics as a new ruling British imperial doctrine.

“Ah, but that was all in the past”, you may say. Not true! Consider Thatcher’s global warming guru Tickell in his 1991 article “Meteorographica and Weather”: “For me the name of Galton produces family as well as scientific echoes. Francis Galton was a friend and ally of my great great grandfather [Darwin’s Bulldog], and was one of that heroic group which took on—and then transformed—the intellectual establishment of his day.” Tickell goes on to describe Galton’s longstanding interest in meteorology and that he coined the term anti-cyclonic. After discussing the work of the IPPC and problems in climate forecasting, Tickell remarks, “Galton would have relished some of these problems. What a pity we no longer have his ingenious mind to find new ways of looking at them!” Tickell who has stated “mankind is a disease” clearly is keeping the family tradition going.

In a 28 January 1999 interview with Malcolm McBain, Tickell boasted how he influenced Thatcher: “I was giving her advice from 1984 onwards on environmental issues, in particular climate change. … I helped write her famous speech to the Royal Society in 1988 on climate change.” McBain asked, “And did she feed you with ideas, or the other way round?” Tickell replied, “I was there to give her ideas.” But Tickell, having been knighted by the Queen in 1983 on the Royal Yacht Britannia, was merely carrying forward the British Crown’s longstanding advocacy of eugenics, which is well documented. So it’s no surprise that Queen Elizabeth II’s father King George VI and his wife were dead centre in the faction of the British elite who supported Hitler right up until WWII. The Royal family’s support is evident in a 1933 film in which the seven-year-old future Queen Elizabeth II is giving the “Heil Hitler” salute along with her uncle the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII.

WWF founder Prince Philip has well-documented Nazi connections. Most notably, his sister Sophie married Prince Christoph of Hesse, who joined the Nazi Party in 1933; he became a colonel in the SS on Himmler’s personal staff, part of a division that was involved in the infamous 30 June to 2 July 1934 murder spree to purge Hitler’s political rivals and opponents called the Night of the Long Knives. Christoph and Sophie named their eldest son, Karl Adolf—Prince Charles’s first cousin—after Hitler. Prince Philip has infamously desired to “return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation”.

The UNEP was founded by oil and mineral businessman Maurice Strong in 1972. Strong was a longtime Foundation Director of the World Economic Forum, and a senior advisor to the president of the World Bank. An ardent population control advocate, Strong was a member of the elite Club of Rome, a haven for eugenicists such as the notorious Garrett Hardin who has argued for brutal population control policies, such as denying medical and nutritional assistance that would condemn millions to die of starvation and disease.

On 8 November 1989 Thatcher gave a speech to the United Nations General Assembly and clearly called for fascist population control: “Put in its bluntest form: the main threat to our environment is more and more people, and their activities…. Mr President, the environmental challenge which confronts the whole world demands an equivalent response from the whole world. Every country will be affected and no one can opt out.”

Interestingly, Margaret Thatcher also learnt her neoliberal polices, which shut down the bulk of British manufacturing and destroyed British coal mining jobs, from raving eugenicists at the Centre for Policy Studies, such as Lord Ralph Harris, Sir Keith Joseph and Sir Alfred Sherman. While Thatcher backtracked on her global warming position in later years, the damage was done. It’s nonsense that neoliberal economics would deliver trickle-down wealth to the masses, and equally, it’s nonsense that “action on climate change” will help the environment. Eugenics and population control is the barely-hidden agenda.
