And their record on predictions is abysmal. But you already knew that because you are a regular reader of these pages. From politicians to pundits, pseudo-scientists, to actual scientists on the Cult payroll, we’ve shared dozens of cataclysmic prophecies, none of which has come to pass or whose effects have anything to do with CO2 or warming. And that’s important. The climate does change. In New England, from day to day. No one denies that. But we are happy to refute the nonsense groups like UCS and First Street peddle for their Marxist paymasters. The cabal of elites that use scary weather predictions to advance socialist economic policy.
Bill Gates Collecting Huge Amounts of Farmland While Pushing Americans Toward “Synthetic Meat”: Why?
Indeed, the Los Angeles–based producer Beyond Meat, which is backed by Gates and a notable investment of Cascade Investment, reportedly became a “$550 million brand” after producing a plant-based “burger” that emulated the appearance of a burger that sometimes bleeds. The GM-free, soy-free gluten-free meat alternative was made using pea protein, beet coloring and beet juice and was popular among enthusiastic meat-eaters.
See how this works? It’s Taylor’s jet, that’s true, but she lends that jet to her friends. As a celebrity who echoes every Democratic Party talking point, including their preaching about environmental responsibility, the expectations from Swift and her cronies is that we peons should take mass transit when we travel: buses and trains, for example. And if we’re going to fly, we should fly commercial to keep fewer jets and CO2 out of the air.
Then of course there are the anti-liberty leftists and the Chinese Communist Party’s favorite emergency: COVID. Try as you might, you’re not going to forget the unfortunate lesson they learned from the COVID crisis, where a little bit of fear went a long way to scaring the sheeple into abject compliance. Since we all know, they are going to bring it all back, for the midterms. Especially the scare masks that have no other function, so much for voter ID right?
Incredible! Biden Takes Action… Not On Inflation, Immigration, Or The Deficit… But On This ‘Priority’
Biden’s approval ratings are about the same as herpes at the moment, and they continue to go even lower. Let’s forget about the wisdom and effectiveness of yesterday’s climate executive order by Biden, which are highly questionable, obviously, and let’s consider the political impact. If Americans thought Biden’s priorities were askew before, how do you think they’re feeling today? Perhaps the Biden Administration better get used to the chants of “Let’s Go Brandon.”
All of these things, in their minds, lower transportation emissions, a significant goal of the GND. Lately, it has been the biggest target on their tiny minds, from TCI to gas taxes they no longer need to pass because the Biden Administration kneecapped oil production and undercut national energy capacity and infrastructure. Deliberate misery to advance a goal meant to reduce CO2 to save us from the rising seas – at least on paper.
I got a whopping folio of tax breaks and subsidies from the state and federal government when I decided to put solar electric on my house in 2013, though it finally still cost a lot: $35-K. I had intimations of living through a chaotic period of history, and the decision was consistent with my general theory of history, which is that things happen because they seem like a good idea at the time. Getting a home solar electric rig seemed like a good idea.
A reduction in solar flux is more likely the cause (from comment further down), and you abandoning an SUV for a dirtier EV (for example) won’t make any difference. Well, not to the Ozone, unless you are convinced the problem is emissions, and screw the science. In which case your EV will be more trouble than the combustion engine that costs less and has a smaller total lifetime carbon footprint than that coal-fired POS.
And most of the climate whiners live or work in these places where the ravages of Democrat-made misery are on full display – the only true threat to mankind. Democrats. But back to the temperature. It’s going to be above 90 degrees in these parts, so there’s likely to be some finger-pointing. As is our custom, we feel obligated to provide some balance by pointing the finger at the some data.
If totally altering our economy is unnecessary for addressing climate change – and credible analyses on the matter state exactly that – then what meaningful impact would we accomplish by having a nation scattered with clover and dandelion-filled lawns in constant need of mowing? The answer seems pretty obvious. Nothing.
Germany is over a barrel thanks to its dependence on green energy, and Russia neither being reliable nor capable of delivering without consequence. So, they’ve had to commit to burning more coal. Australia, another fool on a green hill covered with wind turbines, has announced they too need fossil fuels.
We’re dangerously close to the 1981-2010 mean. As much or more sea ice than before the great awakening when they began its crusade to stop runaway CO2 to ensure runaway expanding government, debt, fearmongering, you know the drill. I guess they could say it worked, but for a tiny problem. There’s still no connection between rising levels of CO2 and anything they’ve yet predicted.
But safety concerns with electric vehicles are not limited to France. One of the earliest such incidents occurred ten years ago in China when an EV taxi caught fire and three people died. In India last month, the government urged the manufacturers of electric motorcycles to implement voluntary recalls of their vehicles after similar fires and explosions
As of today, an intense propaganda campaign against CO2 and fossil fuels has convinced a large portion of the global population that CO2 is harmful and must be reduced to prevent an imagined climate catastrophe. Every natural change in weather patterns, every longer-term change in temperature, rainfall, storms, and just about any weather-related events is attributed to increased levels of CO2, often without any clear causal linkage.
Biden’s Green Meanies want every natural gas pipeline project’s impact evaluated against the made-up concept of environmental justice. An excuse to advance an energy strategy that harms people struggling with rising energy prices until modern living is unaffordable. Blocking needed capacity without any infrastructure to replace it.
Climate change replaced the term, “Global Warming”, when it was clear to anyone that it was colder, not warmer. Here, we’ve had record frosts for days. Last year’s disaster in Texas, where federally funded “experts” decided to shutdown many fossil fuel production flows during weeks of freezing weather seem further evidence of pig-headedness in pushing (too fast) alternate energy.
As for climate, there have been at least five major ice ages, and “the most recent one began approximately 3 million years ago and continues today (yes, we live in an ice age!),” informs the Utah Geological Survey. Then there was the Cryogenian period, during which the Earth was completely, or almost completely, covered with snow and ice. If man had existed during that time, would it have been bad if his activities had raised the temperature a couple of degrees?
The work of Tony Heller from Real Climate Science makes regular enough appearances here that you’ve probably heard his name. This time around, he is covering several old saws with each expert opinion contradicted by another resulting in a common conclusion: These “experts” on climate have no credibility and here’s more proof.
Climate Change is not a solution; it is a theory. It has changed over the years, just as the name. The movement started as Global Warming, but when there were fluctuations, including temperature drops, it was changed to Climate Change. Nobody will dispute Climate Change as our climate has constantly changed since tracking data.
Solar is not exactly New York’s widget given the sun is not strong enough to dent the usage. With the highest electricity rates in the country, New York is doing little to mediate their mandates. As usage soars, the price will increase exponentially, leaving many without power… and the persons most affected will be the poor black and Hispanic populations.
For many years, there has been an entirely natural process operating that has been removing a critical nutrient from the environment. If allowed to continue unabated, it could deplete this nutrient to the point where all life on earth would die. All the land areas would look like the lifeless landscapes we see in pictures of Mars or the moon, and the oceans would be without life from their surfaces to their deepest depths.
Given its massive military buildup, penetrations of Taiwanese air space with squadron upon squadron of top of the… Read More »Utterly Delusional: Pentagon Spokesman Says Climate Change Is Just As Much A Threat As China
The collapse of the global economy is underway and working itself out as it will, and the fear associated with that epic loss of resources, goods, comforts, and conveniences is driving Western Civ batshit crazy. Hence, the lunacies around the Covid-19 virus, another measure-and-control mania. Except that most of the official measurements about Covid-19 are untrue, gamed, fudged, juggled, misrepresented, and weaponized for political purposes.
It’s Not Easy Being Green: As Biden’s Presidency Crumbles, He’s Focused On An Issue Low On Our Priority List
While the country is suffering from the Biden decisions to date, Biden is intent on making a show of power at the G-20 that the United States is ready to take the lead on the battle against Climate Change. Maybe those Americans that cannot afford to heat their homes this winter wish we could go back to Global Warming, but that was a sham. Keep in mind that as Biden and his Baker’s Dozen Secretary Troupe are working to convince the world how green we are, China will be at home.
Few insiders have personally profited from the renewable energy scam more than the former vice president. When he left office in 2001, his net worth was estimated at $1 million to $2 million. Since then, his wealth has skyrocketed to $300 million. If the New Green Deal legislation he supports is enacted, he stands to become a billionaire.
