But it’s not exactly a waste. Not for the fat cats at Eversource. There are even larger buckets of federal cash getting handed around to support these other projects. Someone at Eversource is just calculating how to cash in on the opportunity for access to those on the wind side so they can tap into more of it on another. None of which will produce anything we actually need, especially come winter (discussed recently here). Meanwhile, in the real world, no one has a plan to produce enough electricity to power all this new infrastructure which – by the way – isn’t possible without coal or oil.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
I personally believe there is a special place in hell for people who try to scare kids with things they don’t understand and can’t control, and that’s what they are doing with climate change. Please take this question with you, use it wisely. I’m sure I’m not the first to think of it, but I hope it helps. Then you can both celebrate not knowing the answer, but at least they will stop lecturing.
In 2009, Georgia’s citizens were told that Lanier was once again in a perilous state, so much so that it could dry up permanently along with the rivers and streams that feed it. Nearly three years of drought had left the lake hovering at 20 feet below full pool, the lowest on record. Things were so bad that floating boat docks rested on dry land far from water, in some places as much as 100 feet away.
Despite the virus scare (or perhaps because of it?), warmists still worry about and grieve over their pet cause. I’ve given the matter some serious thought and conclude that the only possible solution is population culling.
Absent historical context, extreme weather can be overhyped in ways that lead the uninformed to conclude that unpleasant things like severe droughts never happened before humans began using fossil fuels. In fact, extreme climate events have occurred with monotonous regularity for a long, long time.
If you thought Nike’s benefiting from Far East sweatshop labor was bad, wait till you learn about what’s helping to create those oh-so politically correct and not-so-green electric cars.
Climate alarmists have for decades pointed to their climate models as evidence that the global temperature is steadily increasing to dangerous levels. Yet, when comparing the numbers out of the models to actual satellite measured temperatures, not one of the 72 models has accurately forecast the temperature for 20 years or more.
