France’s top weatherman suspended for questioning official climate change narrative

France’s top weatherman has been suspended from his job for questioning the cult of global warming.

Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly weather reports on the France 2 channel, has just published a book in which he argues that the climate change industry is a “war machine whose aim to keep us in fear.”

This went down very badly with his employer which is funded by the French government and is ideologically committed to promoting the global warming scare narrative in the run up to the UN’s COP21 climate conference in Paris this December.

“I don’t think management liked it, let’s be honest,” said Verdier, who received a letter on Monday telling him not to turn up to work.

Where is our freedom of speech in Europe? We no longer have any freedom of speech in Europe because governments have ideologies and not policies. Climate change is an ideology not supported by the evidence. German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door policy is morphing into an ideology. It has no more relationship to reality. Europe is built on ideologies. If you dare tell the truth, you will lose your job, be smeared, and maybe even murdered as my case shows.

I am reminded of Vaclav Havel’s essay “The Power of the Powerless” and the difficulty of living within the truth inside a bigger system of lies.

“By breaking the rules of the game, [the citizen living within the truth] has disrupted the game as such. He has exposed it as a mere game. He has shattered the world of appearances, the fundamental pillar of the system. He has upset the power structure by tearing apart what holds it together. He has demonstrated that living a lie is living a lie. He has broken through the exalted facade of the system and exposed the real, base foundations of power. He has said that the emperor is naked. And because the emperor is in fact naked, something extremely dangerous has happened: by his action, the greengrocer has addressed the world. He has enabled everyone to peer behind the curtain. He has shown everyone that it IS possible to live within the truth. Living within the lie can constitute the system only if it is universal. The principle must embrace and permeate everything. There are no terms whatsoever on which it can coexist with living within the truth, and therefore everyone who steps out of line DENIES IT IN PRINCIPLE AND THREATENS IT IN ITS ENTIRETY…If the main pillar of the system is living a lie, then it is not surprising that the fundamental threat to it is living the truth. This is why it must be suppressed more severely than anything else.”
