Hunkered down in a wine cellar in the Irma-hit eastern Caribbean, the
climate-change 'hero' who owns an airline and made his fortune from plastic
(discs for music LP records) Richard Branson reports that his vacation home
on Necker Island, British Virgin Islands, is totally devastated.
Well, his wooden structures roofed with palm fronds, built in the
open-air Balinese style, sit on a low-lying promontory surrounded on
three sides by the Caribbean Sea. How eco-smart is that?
Or, was the flimsy construction deliberately made to be vulnerable
as 'storm bait'?
Why did he put the resort structures so close to the surrounding
surf? For the convenience of beach access of his $4000 per nite
resort guests? Or, to 'prove' that global warming is causing
the sea to rise? Well, instead of high water, the resort burned to
the ground a few years ago, and now the waterlogged toy buildings
are blown away like beach umbrellas.
Why did Branson decide to stay on the island? For a PR stunt
promoting climate change at the upcoming Nov. 6 UN COP climate
change conference in Bonn? To push the global climate tax
initiative sponsored by the NM Rothschild Bank, which is being
charge in UK court for fraud at its Virgin Islands branch? To
promote his son Sam as his successor with all the free media from
Irma and soon at Bonn?
How powerful is Irma really? The biggest hurricane ever? Or is the
data tweaked? (Another factor enabling data-cheating: In the
past, open-propeller wind gauges underestimated storms of higher
speeds and there were far fewer weather monitoring stations.)
The climate change crowd needs any kind of proof after their hockey
stick prediction of more and stronger hurricanes failed to play out
over the past 10 years. COP Bonn is where they circle the wagons
against real science and weather reality.
For global businessman Branson to be the hero at COP 23 Bonn (former
capital of EU power Germany) will give momentum to his opposition to
What photos show is that newer flimsy structures and sheet-metal
shacks in the Caribbean colonies of the Western powers, is that the
weakening of building codes at resort island meant that weak
buildings were shredded, as could be expected...whereas older
buildings built of ferroconcrete and properly roofed are intact.
Never trust buildings, unless you built it yourself with bricks and
mortar and rebar steel.
Branson pledged 3 billion USD for development of a biofuel to power
his Virgin group jetliners and welched on that pledge, but now Irma
puts his massive ego back in the spotlight.
Branson joins the list of 'Mr. Greens'…including David Rothschild
and George Soros, as just another billion-dollar climate faker.
