Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum

Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum (WEF) wants to end “wasteful” private vehicle ownership, instead it wants “communal sharing” of vehicles to reduce global demands for fossil fuels and precious metals. 

A WEF paper argues private vehicles are not good for the planet’s health and most vehicles are barely used.

WEF uses statistics from England to sell their policy that people don't need their own vehicle. Except this is Alberta, Canada where we have a lot of open spaces and sparsely populated cities where car sharing companies don't operate. Car sharing may work in Toronto or Vancouver but beyond that it doesn't work. But Canada's Little Potato is too removed from society and reality to even recognize this. These WEF idiots should be either be locked up or shut-up, they aren't intelligent enough to recognize that what works in one country won't work somewhere else.

While the lunatick Schwabbies are concerned about the "Temperature" of the planet . . . here on the West Coast the last 4 months have been 2 degrees C ( 4 degrees F) cooler than last year. But the Media crows about the one day last week that it got to 34 C.

Is 4 months in a row "Klimate" . . . certainly a Trend . . . perhaps Prof. Willie Soon is correct and we are in a Maunder Minimum and cooling.

One thing for sure . . . Man contributes about 3% of ALL CO2 emissions on the Planet today . . . 97% created by Nature. Perhaps they should arrest Mother Nature!

I "barely use my car" from 6am to 6-7pm Monday-Friday for work, and at least 2-3 hours on both Sat

The WEF would be a small group of fringe lunatics...except for the fact that they have carefully placed many minions in our governments. That is how they ensure their crazy plans come to fruition. Our current Liberal party us rife with WEF adherents.

Someone needs to start executing these demons

Citizens of the world need to keep their cars, elites need to get rid of their private planes and yachts.

Most people are only intimate less than 1% of their lives. Private bedrooms are barely used, and energy and climate the costs of heating them and building them are extremely wasteful. People should live in barracks, and then use an app to book a communal private bedroom when they want to be intimate. Don’t you care about the future?

I wonder what Real Science and Real Scientists think of the Schwabbie Delusions?

We know that CO2 levels would need to reach concentration in air of 60,000 ppm (from current levels of 390 ppm) to become toxic for humans.

We know that every single molecule of CO2 is surrounded by 2500 molecules that are NOT CO2 and therefore any theoretical blanket built from CO2 fibers that supposedly is surrounding the Earth is practically made of NOTHING.

We know that the total emissions/reabsorption of CO2 by nature makes emissions of CO2 by burning fossil fuels totally insignificant and lost in the instrumental accuracy levels.

We know that all the knowledge about the physical world comes from experiments that can be validated and not from calculations that cannot be validated. And yet, everything about man-made global warming is about calculations and NOTHING about measurements.

5 Billion people . . . in China, India, Indonesia, Africa & other Pacific Rim countries are going to increase their use of Oil & Gas in the next Decade by 300% . . . . yet the Swabbies show no concern . . . just attack the Western Democracies.

I guess these WEF clowns don’t consider their own numerous vehicles “private” if they are driven by chauffeurs.

You first Squab, Schlob, Scheisskopf!

Forgettable

Owning your own things is the basis of personal autonomy. It's hard to own your own land these days, so owning their own vehicle is best many people can do. And now even that is too much personal ownership so the emperors want to take them too.

It's unfortunate that people fall for the "climate crisis" fearmongering and are so willing to submit to these insane ideas.

When they see the temperature break a record (U.K.) they panic not realizing the record just broken was a record at some time in the past.

The 1930's were hot and dry. Probably records were set then but rational people did not panic knowing climate changes and weather is regional.

It's with the constant lies from the U.N. WEF and Governments that have people panicked about climate and then so willing to be submissive to their mandates. (Reduce fertilizer to reduce food production seems the most insane).

The minute I see one of these Uber rich Azzholes rowing a boat across the ocean to Davos for a meeting instead of flying in their personal jet, the minute is see one of these elitist politicians peddling a bike down the road in Davos with no massive

Motorcade behind, well, that will be the day I give up my car(truck actually, a truck is useless where I go most of the time), until then, I hope every last one of them gets the clot shot disease and keels over.

Tatanka

Yes sir

PenPen

Honestly, do these elites actually think anyone with their head screwed on straight is going to just give up everything to bow to their greedy needs?

Fatso

What if we look at the pollution levels of all countries and focus on that? What if we use the current infrastructure & make vehicles more fuel efficient? What if 'ol Klaus has an ulterior motive that stems from Agenda2030...?

I need my F-150 to pull our Airstream Covid Isolation Module.

Good old Klaus, for a man who pushes the idea of own nothing and be happy, he seems to have a net worth of around 7 million and just a quick glance may only have an annual salary of a mere million a year.

I'm quite sure my customers will happily pay my hourly rate to walk 81 kms to the closest lumberyard to buy each 2x4. Or perhaps I can just order an Uber out of the closest city 3.5 hours away to carry that $1500 lumber order that I need. Or the 29 boxes of laminate flooring, can we ask Cory Morgan, what is the weight capacity of the average Uber? Maybe Justin will lend me one of his electric SUVs when we have 14" of fresh heavy wet snow and it's -30°C?

I'll happily take public transit, so you think they will mind the slight 81 km detour to pick me up and 81 kms back? Can I haul 4 sheets of 3/4" plywood on a bus? 12 8' 4x4 pressure treated posts? 100 sheets of drywall, 1000 linear feet of 6' tall fences that have to be replaced if lumber returns to somewhat normal prices?

I swear people who live in cities have no idea what exists in the real world outside their bubbles.

guest136

Don’t worry, you soon won’t be able to afford lumber anyway. Rural people emit more CO2 per capita than urban people, you should just move to the city. You seem productive, I’m sure you’ll be able to afford an extruded concrete cel- apartment

PersonOne

You will own nothing and be happy. Except for the Elites..who will remain happy and have everything they ever had...while your slave labor will supply them with it. I dont think so.

RigPig

We must save the world from the WEF, UN and WHO.

PersonOne

I agree completely. A rescue mission is in order!

Barron Not Barron

110%!!

Creepy Little Dictator

Save the planet: Eliminate air conditioning in all government and school buildings. And in the winter turn the heat down to 5C. They can all put on a sweater.

Goose

Just as soon as they give up the private jets.

dave_656

Save the planet: BURN THE WEF TO THE GROUND. These wastes of skin need to die ugly.

xxxHighwoodxxx

I agree

Delby

Save the planet: give up your TV; get rid of the UN; get rid of socialist governments; but if we could only just rid ourselves of liars it wouldn't be necessary to rid ourselves of anything more.

The world's population needs to LOCK the Leaders of the WEF, UN and WHO into a prison for a minimum of 30 years. Sedition is a criminal offense. The police are castrated it seems so it will be up to us to get it done. Schwab, Trudeau, Singh, Gates and Soros will be using their private jets to escape our wrath. Starvation makes people very mean . Look at Sri Lanka.

Leonidas

Sri Lanka is coming to Canada. All the policies of the little diktator are leading right into a collapse and a violent uprising.
