As Edward Snowden infamously warned on Twitter: “You’re gonna eat the crickets.” So, while mainstream outlets and celebrities continue to push for the normalization of insect eating, they simultaneously smear their critics as conspiracy theorists who are missing the point and overshadowing the benefits of the trendy alternatives. This is all while the same people who tout the claim “you will own nothing and be happy” want us to consume insects for so-called environmental reasons.
Climate Alarmists, Fauci, And The Rest – There’s An Ill Wind Blowing, And America’s Tyrants Are In Trouble
Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) vowed to block all efforts to ban gas-powered vehicles in Virginia. His declaration comes after California’s Air Resources Board voted Thursday to implement an executive order by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) that phases out gas-powered vehicles and bans the sale of them beginning in 2035. Virginia passed a law in 2021 that set the Commonwealth on a path to adopt California’s emissions standards. “In an effort to turn Virginia into California, liberal politicians who previously ran our government sold Virginia out by subjecting Virginia drivers to California vehicle laws,” Youngkin wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “Now, under that pact, Virginians will be forced to adopt the California law that prohibits the sale of gas and diesel-fueled vehicles.
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.
With rates skyrocketing, charging will become unaffordable to all but the most well-off, and we’ve postulated repeatedly that this was always the goal. A point they admit, including after the release of the original Green New Deal, whose author (we can’t ever let you forget this) said, “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” No air travel for you and the end of private transportation.
I know we’ve been distracted by the rise of public health authoritarianism, but it’s August of 2022. The only catastrophes I’ve seen since 2020 were the response to the release of a man-made virus in China that few needed to fear, the political response to that, and everything Joe Biden has done since the gropey doddering turd stumbled into the Oval Office without Barry.
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.”
The Marxist chicken-littles, many of them disguised as “journalists,” will have their day. Prophetic headlines with imagine doom. But these are the same cherry-pickers who have yet to predict anything correctly after forty years. Today is no exception. And they only have their professional ancestors to blame. A lot of documented history and too few Winston Smiths. A problem they have been working to remedy, but until then, we are going to have to contradict the doomsayers.
It is believed that interactions with Jupiter and Saturn create magnetic changes which affect our due North. The cycle is believed to occur every 112,000 years and lasts roughly 26,000 years. The theory produced by Milankovitch some 80 years ago is widely accepted today. While there is no scientific reasoning found for these timed glacial-interglacial cycles the ‘science’ stipulated today to create pockets of wealth are creative – but false.
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.
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.
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.
Let’s not forget that the Left wanted rising gas prices to get people into EVs. But we lack the material, manufacturing, supply chain, infrastructure, and grid capacity to charge them at the pace the Left claims we need to adopt. But we’re doing it anyway? Picture it like being herded toward the edge of a cliff where they plan to put a bridge that no one is sure how to start let alone finish – but they want you on the other side now.
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?
