Environmentalism with more than a hint of misanthropy

The first report to the club, The Limits to Growth was published in 1972. Its computer simulations suggested that economic growth could not continue indefinitely because of resource depletion. The 1973 oil crisis increased public interest in this problem. The report went on to sell 30 million copies in more than 30 languages, making it the best-selling environmental book in history.

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.”
Club of Rome,  Alexander King,  Bertrand Schneider (1993)  [1]
The Global Revolution, 1993 edition

2019 Planetary emergency plan

In 2019 the Club published a Planetary Emergency Action Plan[2], founded on the urgent need to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, to reach carbon-neutrality by 2050, while halting biodiversity loss and protecting essential Global Commons."

By the early 2020s, there are several things that point to the plan having been adopted at the highest levels, who again gave marching orders down the system. It was presented to the 2019 Bilderberg attendees by one of the authors, Johan Rockström, and very similar ideas were the main topic at the 2020 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, just before the main phase of the COVID-19 deep event was started.

  • The plan called for a halt all fossil fuel expansion, investments and subsidies by 2020. Noticeably, in 2021 the International Energy Agency "stunned markets" with the publication of "a roadmap which calls for an immediate end to new investments in oil and gas projects" as part of a “total transformation of the energy systems that underpin our economies.[3])
  • The plan called for to "agree in 2020 to halve consumption and production footprints in developed and emerging economies"(which is what happened during the rolling lockdowns and the purposeful destruction of the old economy.)
  • The plan called for to "continue the doubling of wind and solar capacity every four years, and triple annual investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies for high-emitting sectors before 2025".
  • It also wanted to "internalise externalities in unsustainable and high-carbon production and consumption through targeted consumption taxes and regulation" and "shift taxation from labour to the use of all natural resources" - see the contours of a Social credit system through the use of a vaccine passport system.

Not explicitly stated, CO² production is part of human activity. Reduction will result if human activity is reduced, which fits in with the Clubs' relentless warning of Overpopulation and proposed Population reduction.

The member list

The Club of Rome, which describes itself as totally structureless except for an 8-man executive committee originally led by Aurelio Peccei and Alexander King, is limited to 100 members. Those 100 members,however, wield considerable power in major nations, both East and West, and in an assortment of multinational institu­tions.

The member list (above) includes the executive council, full members and associate members per January 2021[4], and some members from 1981[5]. The list is by no means complete
