Replace ‘has no hope’ with ‘makes no sense’, then he’s getting closer to the reality that eluded the doomsters long ago, if they were ever anywhere near it at all.

Environmentalists’ constant hyperbolic predictions of apocalyptic doom have left the public tuned out and resigned, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger told his fellow climate warriors at the Austrian World Summit in Vienna on Thursday. CNSNews reporting.

“No one is going to invest huge sums of money in a movie where there is no hope,” Schwarzenegger said, warning that people won’t invest in the climate movement if they are bombarded with nothing but messages of doom – ranging from famine and war to human extinction:

“Well, let me just tell you something about the movie business: no one is going to invest huge sums of money in a movie where there is no hope. Yet, frequently, I hear environmentalists talking about the existential threat of climate change, the existential threat we are going to be eliminated.

“And what does the public hear: the icebergs are melting, the rainforests are burning, the coral reefs are dying, the polar bears are starving, our cities will be flooded, and our farms will dry up and our coastlines will wiped out and there will be famine and starvation and people will be fleeing the heat and the rising water and there will be wars – and, by the way, don’t use fossil fuels, don’t use plastic, don’t eat meat.

“So, those are kind of things that we hear. Now, of course, I am exaggerating here…

“But, is it any wonder that people are confused and tuned out? This movie doesn’t have a storyline, except constant alarm which cannot be sustained.”

    Arnie is right. But the greens won’t learn.

    The narcissist has a propensity for ignoring the consequences of their objectives, as seen by others. They tend to look at them from their own agenda, and assume everyone will fall in line with it–because it “makes so much sense and is a desirable thing.”

    My father did this sort of thing his entire life, never realizing that imposing his visionary projects on others most of the time backfired. The worst of it is such personalities never learn from these experiences, and certainly not the same from their predecessors. This weakness is part of the continued failure of humanity to progress through the ages.

    No Arne, you’re not exaggerating at all.

    ‘He told his fellow climate warriors …’

    Is that a misprint ?

    Surely it should read –
    He told his fellow climate worryers ?

  4. Simon Co says:

    “our coastlines will be wiped out”! Er, no, they’ll just move.

  5. SimC-S says:

    “our coastlines will wiped out”! Er, no, they’ll just move.

    so Arnie’s seeing some light, then? Must have been on something whilst in charge in California, No?

  7. Chaswarnertoo says:

    Has he told his mate, bathhouse Barry about losing his seaside mansion?

  8. gregole says:

    Ha ha ha. What story line do they have? Movie? No, pure fantasy,

  9. MrGrimNasty says:

    If like Arnie you support the End Of Days catastrophizing of climate alarmists and their True Lies intended to Sabotage the west and capitalism with a green new deal more like a Raw Deal, then you are going to have to accept that come Judgement Day, some Collateral Damage is inevitable; the film industry is just one of The Expendables awaiting a Dark Fate in the Aftermath.

    They just go to the next sequel if the sea ice didn’t melt in the previous one.

    …and our coastlines will wiped out…

    Coastlines change all the time, some faster than others e.g. as the ‘Scottish Sun’ newspaper reports HERE with headlines “THE BEACH IS BACK Villagers stunned as entire beach that washed away 30 years ago reappears overnight after freak tide”

    Parts of the English east coast have been eroding for decades, even centuries — e.g. Dunwich.

    The Domesday Book of 1086 describes it as possessing three churches.[9] At that time it had an estimated population of 3,000.[10]

    On 1 January 1286,[11] a storm surge reached the east edge of the town and destroyed buildings in it. Before that, most recorded damage to Dunwich was loss of land and damage to the harbour.[12]

    This was followed by two further surges the next year, the South England flood of February 1287 and St. Lucia’s flood in December. A fierce storm in 1328[11] also swept away the entire village of Newton, a few miles up the coast.[citation needed] Another large storm in 1347 swept some 400 houses into the sea.[13] The Grote Mandrenke around 16 January 1362 finally destroyed much of the remainder of the town.[14]

    Most of the buildings that were present in the 13th century have disappeared, including all eight churches, and Dunwich is now a small coastal village.

    More recent erosion on the east coast (below). Some places have lost 3 miles or more of land over recorded history. Going back far enough England was joined to Europe by Doggerland, now under the North Sea. Nobody claims humans caused that, but something did (the Storegga slides have been mentioned).

    Saint Marcellus’s flood, January 1362

    Saint Marcellus’s flood or Grote Mandrenke…was an intense extratropical cyclone, coinciding with a new moon, which swept across the British Isles, the Netherlands, northern Germany, and Denmark (including Schleswig/Southern Jutland) around 16 January 1362 (OS), causing at least 25,000 deaths.
    . . .
    This storm tide, along with others of like size in the 13th century and 14th century, played a part in the formation of the Zuiderzee,[1] and was characteristic of the unsettled and changeable weather in northern Europe at the beginning of the Little Ice Age.

    Quote from oldbrew: “The Domesday Book of 1086 describes it as possessing three churches.”

    1086ce is near an Eddy cycle peak, the previous one from today’s.

    Well, you did get one beach back; there is no hope of us getting ours back, its more that 100m under. See bottom animated gif here:

  14. oldbrew says:

    Former adviser to David Cameron is working for the US Republicans now, but has a good critique of over-the-top climate alarmism here.

  15. Mike Wattam says:

    This guy is obviously a radical Republican supporter. I don’t have time to listen to arse-speak.
