The idea that CO2 is pollution is absolutely absurd. The claim that it can destroy the Earth or change its temperature is completely ridiculous. However, from a totalitarian point of view, it makes sense to convince people that CO2 is pollution. There is no human activity that does not emit CO2 – from life and death to turning on the light switch."

Well-known American journalist Alex Newman argues that the narrative of "artificial climate change" is nothing more than a smokescreen for totalitarianism (aka technocrats). They will try to control every aspect of our lives under the pretext of "saving" us.

Newman argues that accepting the idea that CO2 is pollution would mean that every aspect of our lives would be subject to regulatory scrutiny by those who claim to want to protect us from pollution.
