The public child abuse in using Greta Thunberg to push the Fossil Free campaign to end investments in oil and gas world-wide, has far wealthier sponsors than local Swedish businessmen such as Ingmar Renzhog and Bo Thorén. The billion dollar climate-change industry is hyped up for a reason.
One may assume that the Oil and Gas industry is currently subjected to a billionaire-funded, eco-group like “Arab Spring” where the mainstream media plays its usual role in hyping up sentiments. Somebody’s manipulating the industry to profit massively once the bubble bursts and the market needs more energy, writes historian, author and founder of Herland Report, Hanne Nabintu Herland.
Everyone knows that the world does not have any comparable source of energy than coal, oil and gas. Water, solar and wind power is not, at its current stage of development, on any level able to compare in power intensity or solve the worlds energy needs. So who is manipulating the world energy market through the billion dollar reallocation of funds?
The irony is that the world’s leading hedge fund manager, long term known for manipulating markets, George Soros, is one of the main drivers behind the #FossilFree eco-friendly climate change organizations.
It is a multi billion dollar industry by now. The Heritage Foundation states that in 2012 alone, the leftwing Climate Policy Initiative study “Global investment in climate change” found that $359 billion was invested in eco-projects that year alone. The Greta Thunberg Show is only a small part of the billion dollar eco-campaign.
But here is the catch: Soros and his billionaire friends are investing far more in oil and gas than in eco-campaigns, obviously awaiting gains on recovery.

The billion dollar climate change industry
Soros’ famous methods include the profitable combination of global currency speculation combined with local manipulation in countries to make the desired events happen.
For example, George Soros earned over one billion USD in a day by manipulating the British pound, which got him the title of the “man who broke the Bank of England” in 1992. The fall of Georgia’s president Shevardnadze is credited to him, Yugoslavia’s Milosevic, recent murmur by Orban in Hungary of Soros’ Open Society work is well known. Not to forget Ukraine, where Soros has publicly admitted to interfere.
The neo-con geopolitical strategy tends to go hand in hand with current investment strategies, maybe also now, as the attack on the oil sector obviously will hurt both Russia, Iran and other oil producers.
The idea is to, in Gene Sharp style, help create “the revolution” – or feed on the already existing discontentment in a country, while betting in the financial market for the same to happen.
It is a brilliant move: Of course you know that something will happen in the particular region in which you are also destabilizing the political system, and may speculate financially with great success.
And the catch: Soros heavily invests precisely in the oil industry. And in coal. “George Soros made big investment bets on fossil fuel companies in the fourth quarter of 2017 even though he claims these firms contribute to climate change. In the last quarter of 2017, Soros Fund Management reported investments in eleven new fossil fuel corporations totaling nearly $160 million, according to his company’s December 31, 2017, filing before the Securities and Exchange Commission reviewed by The DCNF.
His company’s second biggest energy investment was Halliburton, one of the world’s largest oil service companies.”
Soros investments in oil and gas far overshadow his investment in #FossilFree eco-environmental groups. This strengthens the assumption that the same big money behind the push for divestment in oil are the same waiting for massive gains once the world comes to an energy short, and oil prices again soar.
Fossil Free, the organization behind Greta Thunberg
Greta Thunberg Fossil Free world fame in a time span of two months required a whole new ball game of influence than the two Swedish businessmen, Ingmar Renzhog and Bo Thorén were able to produce. You have to almost own the world media to make that happen. And notoriously the US media is over 90 % owned by precisely the same corporations that own big money: General Electric Corporation VIACOM, AOL Time Warner, DISNEY, News Corporation and CBS. It is not exactly hard to define the mainstream media narrative.
Center stage, from the beginning, was the American Fossil Free organization’s man in Sweden, Bo Thorén. He was, contrary to what many think, the man who suggested for Greta to skip school and protest against climate change stunt back in 2018. It was never Gretas idea, as he explains in a Sweden Radio P4 program uploaded January 19th, 2019. He had been getting in touch with PR firms, climate change lobby groups, famous individuals by January, 2018, looking for ways to cooperate in order to push the climate-change agenda. He specifically spoke of the need to find a “child or young people that could become the front face for the climate-change and be used as opinion leaders.”
We suspect the later over 100 demonstrations where children dropped out of school to protest, were also organized by the community organizing segments of Fossil Free?
Rentzhog, Thorén and other Swedish locals are but strawmen in a much larger game: A remarkably well organized world-wide scheme to end investments in oil and gas, the only reliable source of energy that we currently have.
Fossil Free is an international organization, founded in the United States, that aims to stop international investments into the fossil fuel industry. Its slogans are clear cut community organizing with global economic aims: Learn how to create a Fossil Free campaign, accelerate a shift to a “just energy economy”, stop and ban all new coal, oil and gas projects, cut off financing for fossil fuel.
The Fossil Free webpages come with a full resource pack, ala Gene Sharp’s Arab Spring: “Tools, guides + templates you can use to help your campaign succeed.” In other words, how to manipulate the public and young people to organize strikes, demonstrations and mass-movement to help bring about the desired divestment in oil, from which the very same billionaires will profit massively. Not to mention the allocation of wealth into even fewer hands, a trend that has prevailed the past years.
Similar organizations such as Oil Change International and the Sierra Club are funded by Marisla Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Family Foundation and Wallace Global Fund, the same groups that often invest where George Soros invests. The Hollywood connected is evident, with a string of biased movies such as Leonardo di Caprio “Before the flood”.
On Fossil Free California, the economic aim is stated: “Move the money out of fossil fuel. Fossil Free California works to end financial support for climate-damaging fossil fuels and promote a transition to a low-carbon economy.” In a long list of articles, divestment in fossil fuel is suggested again and again.
With a global reach, organizations like Fossil Free push in remarkably economic terms to stop world investment in fossil fuel.
Fossil Free California clearly works from an economic angle in order to hurt the fossil fuel industry and defines the very methods by which a hedgefund would manipulate the market, quoting: “We are environmental, health, justice, faith, labor, community, parent, and consumer organizations calling on California’s elected leaders to “stop, drop, and roll.“
The only trigger words missing from the list would be that the Fossil Free movement is to create “world peace, democracy, human rights”, but I guess those slogans were used up in the Arab Spring, which brought the very opposite to the Middle East, namely civil war, famine, hundreds of thousands dead, millions displaced.
Quoting Fossil Free California further:
- STOP new fossil fuel projects: no new permits for oil and gas extraction, fossil fuel infrastructure, or petrochemical projects in California.
- DROP existing production: Set a national and global precedent by becoming the first oil-producing state to announce a phase-out of existing production in line with the Paris climate goals, with a just and equitable transition that protects workers, communities, and economies.
- ROLL out setback limits: Begin by first phasing out oil production in places that are suffering most from the impacts of fossil fuel extraction—by creating a 2500-foot health and safety buffer zone between fossil-fuel infrastructure and homes, schools, and other sensitive sites.
This is remarkable: The stated aim is to ban coal, oil, gas – the only reliable sources of energy that we currently have. Who is set to gain from the upcoming shortage? it is obvious that the ordinary citizen and underdeveloped countries will have to pay for this utopia.
With a global reach, organizations like Fossil Free push in remarkably economic terms to stop world investment in fossil fuel. But the world has not yet developed other sources strong enough to serve the world’s need for energy.
Even the production of wind mills, hydro-power or solar panels require massive amounts of fossil fuel to produce, long before they even reach the fields where they are to operate. The stoves in the world run on gas, coal or electricity. Houses are heated by the same source of energy. Not a single car would run without it, not even the so-called “eco-friendly TESLAs,” which could not even be manufactured was it not for plants using fossil fuel, the very electricity used mostly deriving from the oil industry.
So, who is cunningly looking to earn billions of dollars from the divestment in oil and gas, knowing that an alternative is not yet in place, when shortage sets in at a later stage?
