Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political rattle.

First of all, I think there's a typo in the last word, which should be "battle" (or "combat", combate politico).

Then I don't get what he's saying. Social control? How?  What freedom is he suggesting is being infringed? By or on behalf of whom?

Major businesses? What's their interest? If this notion is true, why is the country that has the biggest businesses and in which big business has perhaps the longest arm, fighting against the alarm on climate change?

Political combat? Does he mean one side of the political spectrum is using climate change fear against the other? That would be the left against the right? Or, or...?
