Mike Rowe, the host of the popular show “Dirty Jobs,” blasted billionaires who see the middle class as the big problem standing in the way of eliminating fossil fuels. Rowe didn’t mince words and pointed out what he believed to be their “hypocrisy” and “unholy alliance.”
Mike Rowe has long been the champion of the men and women who make a living doing the dirty jobs that keep our country running smoothly. He was asked during a Fox News interview to comment on the billionaires who attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Rowe was asked what he thought about the “callous” and “dismissive attitude” of the elites at the forum over jobs “they don’t approve of,” such as those in the fossil fuel industry. “It’s hard to maintain a consistent level of outrage,” Rowe told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “I’ve been at this for 15 years. The foundation I run is focused on real jobs that require an actual skill that truly exists.”
Rowe said he doesn’t understand “why anybody is taking any of it seriously” regarding the coverage of the World Economic Forum. “These are billionaires, and very, very, very wealthy people who fly privately to this resort to basically blame the everyday guy for all of the trouble in the world,” Rowe said.
“I just don’t know how a reasonable person can see through the hypocrisy to even for a moment seriously consider the validity of anything you just played,” he added, referencing a clip that showed elites espousing the need to “close the emissions gap,” phase out coal, and end the “addiction to fossil fuels.”
Host Laura Ingraham said we couldn’t ignore their comments because it’s creating policies that hurt people. Rowe agreed and said sometimes things are going to “have to go splat” before the majority of Americans stand up. He added that “affirmatively making fossil fuels the enemy right now” is crazy.
“And to marginalize and vilify the very thing we are all so completely and totally reliant on, that’s a recipe for crazy-making,” Rowe declared, noting that our relationship with energy and food is completely disconnected. “We’re at war with the very things that we need,” he stated.
One of the more outrageous suggestions at the World Economic Forum (WEF) was from the chairman of the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe, Danish businessman Jim Hagemann Snabe, who heads the German manufacturing giant Siemens. He called for “a billion people to stop eating meat” and replace it with “synthetic protein” in order to save the climate.
“If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems,” Snabe said. “I predict we will have proteins not coming from meat in the future, they will probably taste even better. They will be zero carbon and much healthier than the kind of food we eat today, that is the mission we need to get on,” he said.
The World Economic Forum has also been at the forefront of the meat-free future movement, arguing that people should opt for more “climate beneficial foods” such as algae, seaweed, and cacti. The Klaus Schwab-founded organization that pioneered the idea of a “Great Reset” of capitalism has also promoted the idea of eating insect protein rather than meat to lessen the impact of man-made climate change.
Catholic Bishop Joseph Strickland, of Tyler, Texas, claims the billionaires and their agenda are pure evil. “Who elected the WEF?” Bishop Strickland posted on Twitter. “Their agenda is Godless & does not respect our God-given rights as human beings. Elected officials who bow to them are betraying the very people who elected them. We need to return to natural law which guides us in the truth.”
