Billionaire George Soros said he is working to “bend” the arc of history “in the right direction.” In Soros’ case, that direction is far to the left. To do it, he donated over $32 billion to his Open Society Foundations since 1984, to further leftist ideology and activism well beyond his own lifetime. Soros has committed a combined sum of more than $2.3 billion to create a global university network to push his extreme ideology.
At 91, Soros hasn’t slowed down his radical agenda to inundate the American people — and the world — with propaganda involving leftist academia and racial strife. He recently launched a $1 billion initiative to create a “global university” network to indoctrinate the next generation with his extremist “open society” worldview.
One of the core focuses of the Open Society University Network (OSUN) network is to “battle the climate crisis.” The network recently launched the “Solve Climate by 2030” initiative, a coordinated effort to spread propaganda that the earth only has 10 years to stave off disaster, which is about as realistic as when The Guardian pushed a false prophecy in 2004 “that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020.” In fact, climate activists have been pushing the 10-year-window-to-save-earth line for decades. In 1989, the Associated Press published a story pushing a phony prediction that “governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.” The lede for that story was just as ridiculous: “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.” OSUN seems to be utilizing old propaganda lines.
Soros’ goal is to institutionalize his worldview on a global scale. This includes fear-mongering about climate change and pushing eco-extremism.
Soros claimed in January 2020 that the climate “crisis,” which will undergird his global network’s efforts, “threatens the survival of our civilization.” The Open Society University Network launched the “Solve Climate by 2030” initiative April 6, 2021, a coordinated effort to spread propaganda that the earth only has 10 years to stave off climate Armageddon.
Bard College has a webpage focused on the “The Worldwide Teach-In On Climate and Justice,” as part of that initiative. That page touted that on March 30, 2022, “[O]ver 1,000 Colleges, Universities, High Schools and K-8 schools worldwide will engage over half a million people, in a one-day Teach-In on climate solutions and justice in the transition.”
The “Solve Climate by 2030” initiative published a propagandistic video of students from 25 countries sharing their fears about the climate and demanding #MakeClimateAClass. One student said, “I’m afraid my hands can do nothing to stop the downpour.” Another worried climate change would “leave us alone in a world of concrete and plastic” and one student complained that it would “groom Gaia into a vacant void.” Two students chimed in unison: “It will take the green, and leave us in the dark.”
Soros’ university network warned that if humanity doesn’t adopt its eco-extremist vision, “we will severely destabilize the global climate, leading to extreme weather, droughts, floods and sea-level rise that will be increasingly hard for humans to manage.”
