“CLIMATE CHANGE”: LEFTWING BOONDOGGLE, COSTLY SCAM, FANATICAL RELIGION OR, ALL OF THE ABOVE???

Climate Change 26

I feel pretty confident in saying that most reasonably intelligent people have a rather difficult time buying into the nonsensical ‘theory’ of ‘global warming”, “climate change”, “climate disruption” or whatever it is that the true believers are calling it these days.  Most Americans are able to recognize what is truly going on here by simply looking at who it is that’s pushing this cockamamie theory which we’re told is based on exhaustive scientific research, when in fact there is very little actual scientific proof that supports it at all.  While supporters argue that it is now settled science that manmade “climate change” is in fact taking place, it’s roughly 80 graphs from the 58 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in 2017 that would seem to take exception to that claim.

Now before anyone comes unglued, I think we can all agree that by “global warming” these papers are not making reference to the mild warming of around 0.8 degrees Celsius that the planet has experienced since the middle of the 19th century as the world crawled out of the Little Ice Age.  Pretty much everyone, alarmists and skeptics alike, is agreed on that.  Rather, they define “global warming” in the sense that it is most commonly used today by grant-troughing scientists, and huxter politicians, and scaremongering green activists, and brainwashed state-controlled media environmental correspondents.  “Global warming” as in the scary, historically unprecedented, primarily man-made phenomenon which we must address urgently before the icecaps melt and the Pacific islands disappear.

What all of these papers argue, in their different ways, is that the alarmist version of global warming — aka Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) — is a fake artifact.  That is, all these different experts from around the world, be it from China, Russia, Canada, the U.S., Italy, or elsewhere, have been looking closely at different aspects of the global warming puzzle in various regions and on different timescales and came to the conclusion in irreproachable, peer-reviewed scientific ways that there is no evidence to support the global warming scare story.  Late 20th century and early 21st century global warming, they show, is neither dramatic, nor unusual, nor, for that matter, scary.  So I feel confident in being able to ignore such climate change alarmists as Al Gore and John Kerry-Heinz.

The intellectually corrupt and mendacious alarmist science establishment would have us believe that climate skepticism is a minority activity, the preserve of a few cranks, championed only by people who don’t do the science.  But this is just pure propaganda.  There are dozens of reputable scientists from around the world with no axe to grind collaborating on studies which all corroborate, independently and rigorously, the increasingly respectable view that “man-made global warming” just isn’t a thing.  Not that it ever was a thing, really. This debate was always about left-wing ideology, quasi-religious hysteria, and “follow the money” corruption, never about “science.”  Still, it’s always a comfort to know that “the science” is on our side as well.  And how the Greenies must hate that.

In an attempt to point out just how dishonest those on the left can be let’s all take a brief trip down memory lane and recall some of the other great lies that those on the left have been telling for decades.  For instance, do you recall how it was that Rachel Carson, courtesy of her fictional ‘masterpiece’, Silent Spring, got DDT banned?  The result being, of course, that millions of people died worldwide but we saved the mosquito.  Or how Ralph Nader got the Corvair banned because of gas tank hysteria?   And there was Jimmy Carter, remember him, he told us back in 1978 that the world would run out of oil by 1980.  Jimmy was, and remains to this day, a complete moron.  And it was Carl Sagan who once said that Saddam’s oil well fires in Kuwait would usher in an ice age, not global warming.

Then came the global warming and ‘climate change’ hysteria after which not one major hurricane has hit the U.S. in over 10 years, the longest stretch since records began being kept.  So when it became a bit more difficult to sell the notion of ‘global warming’, the nomenclature was changed to ‘climate change’, on a planet where the climate has been changing for millions of years.  So, yeah, they’re liars, and anyone who assigns any amount of credibility to these folks (say like the idiotic Supreme Court Justice Kennedy when he deemed CO2 a pollutant) is a fool.  Trees and all other foliage LOVE CO2. They eat it and emit oxygen.  Extrapolate from there and you’ll know what the solution is!!  We already have made HUGE strides in reducing pollution.  Just look at the pollution map at the World Health Org.

‘Climate change’ has become a religion.  It’s now “cool and intelligent” to be self-righteously angry at your own country, industry, people, etc.  Just don’t ask any ONE of these climate zealots to stop using any of the 6,000 items that are petroleum based because they’d have to start with their cellphones.  Or ask them to fly with the little people where they’d be packed in like sardines and have to be subjected to the TSA perverts instead of flying on their private jets.  You see, the only people who are called upon to make the ‘necessary’ sacrifices for the benefit of all are those of us who comprise that group looked upon as being the unwashed masses.  We’re far too unsophisticated, and therefore nowhere near deserving of those privileges enjoyed by society’s elites, so the brunt of the burden falls upon us.

Look, I have no problem with valid research that follows the scientific process. I do have a problem with spending trillions of dollars on an ‘alleged’ problem based on an anomaly that no one has actually proven even exists.  I have a problem with tax hungry politicians who have zero acumen in any science getting involved with the research. I have a problem with totalitarians using fictitious world-ending scenarios to scare the masses into compliance with their agenda. I have a problem with people pretending that an alleged “consensus” has any place in the scientific method. And, I have a problem when research shows the base premise of the theory under study shows the theory itself to be completely flawed; and yet, the researchers continue on their merry way and soak up tax dollars anyway.

Totalitarians have been busy trying to scare the masses since before the dawn of history.  It’s what they do.  They only do it on a larger, faster and more efficient scale now.  And in an effort to coerce those of us who are non-believers into keeping silent that we are often times referred to as being the dreaded ‘deniers’ of ‘climate change’ and as such we are to be forever shunned.  As if that really matters to any of us who refuse to be fooled into believing such nonsense.  Personally, I wear that moniker as a badge of honor just as I do when lumped in with those who are called ‘Flat Earthers’ for no other reason than they are able to understand what is really going on here.  And I know that I am far from being the only one proud to be looked down upon by these ‘climate change’ loons.

Because it was a recent Rasmussen Poll that showed 41 percent of Americans agree with President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate change agreement, because sticking with the deal would increase energy costs.  Most Americans don’t want to pay much, if anything, to fight “global warming.”  Rasmussen wrote about its poll: “President Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris anti-global warming agreement last week in part because of his concern about its potential impact on the U.S. economy.”  And it was of the 41 percent who said the deal would increase energy costs for Americans that Rasmussen said, “Voters tend to agree the accord would have led to increased energy costs, and most remain unwilling to pay much, if anything, more to fight global warming.”

Rasmussen reported, “Just 20% believe the requirement would decrease the cost of energy, while 23% say it would have no impact,” and noted that 16 percent of poll takers were not sure.  Not sure?  In another Rasmussen poll, the majority of respondents, or 60 percent, said Congress should vote on any such agreement.  It was ex-president Barry Obummer who signed the Paris “executive agreement” in 2015 without the consent of Congress.  And those who were paying attention during the last presidential election are aware Hitlery made it quite clear that she too was a devout follower of the ‘climate change’ religion, to the point where she fully intended on putting coal mining companies and therefore coal miners out of business.   Maybe that too can be blamed on the Russians.  Ya think?

JOHN KERRY-HEINZ IS A DISGRACE, A LIAR, AND A TRAITOR…

Kerry 21

When there have been 30,000 people killed by Muslim terrorists just since January of last year and an unknown number killed during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, I’m more than a bit curious how it is that Secretary of State John Kerry-Heinz can so steadfastly insist, and as recently as last Friday, that ‘climate change’ is as dangerous as the threats posed by the Islamic State and other Muslim extremist groups.  And I’d like to know how many people have died during that same period of time whose cause of death can be listed as “climate change.”

Kerry-Heinz spoke last Friday in Vienna at an international climate change conference attended by parties to the 1987 Montreal Protocol, a global treaty to end the use of many chlorofluorocarbons from aerosols and refrigerants that deplete the ozone layer.  Kerry-Heinz said the issue might not get as much attention as terrorism but that the meeting is as important as a gathering he hosted on Thursday in Washington on combating the Islamic State.  He said, “What you are doing here right now is of equal importance, because it has the ability literally to save life on this planet.”

Treaty members continue to insist that they have been able to attain some level of success, including a healing of an ozone hole over Antarctica.  Now they are busying trying to adopt yet another amendment, one that would phase out substances that replaced chlorofluorocarbons, called hydrofluorocarbons.  We’re told that they supposedly trap more heat than carbon dioxide but are less plentiful.  Participants in the Vienna meeting hope to find consensus on an amendment that could be adopted at the next meeting of the parties in Kigali, Rwanda, this October.

But how about some actual facts, Mr. Kerry-Heinz, instead of your idiotic pabulum that’s nothing more than propaganda.  Like the fact that during 2015 alone there were 2858 Islamic attacks in 53 different countries, in which 27,588 people were murdered and 26,136 injured.  And for comparison, in 2001 there were 177 Islamic attacks in just 13 countries, in which 3,537 people were killed and 3,561 injured.  If you think that any real Muslim is your friend, you are ignorant of Islam. So I ask you again, Mr. Kerry-Heinz, how many is it that have died from climate change?

And too, Mr. Kerry-Heinz, let’s also discuss the fact of how it’s the personal behavior of 1% of the U. S. population results in their CO2 footprint being 50 times the average of the remaining 99%. While this surprises no one, and you are aware of this, what most people fail to realize is this means that this small group of wealth individuals is responsible for more than 33% of ALL U. S. CO2 emissions and were they to only emit 25 time the average of the other 99%, via their personal behavior, overall U. S. CO2 emissions would immediately (not over decades) decline by 17%.

And can you please explain to all of us rubes, Mr. Kerry-Heinz, why all the plans being implemented and proposed will allow this same small group to continue their behavior without any reductions in their CO2 emissions while financially hammering we the lower income and middle classes, just for being alive. We know you care (because you tell us) and we know this is an emergency (again because you tell us) so PLEASE explain the logic behind your plans. Hurry, because there precious little time to waste. Should we all wait for your explanation or can you finally admit it’s all just a scam.

Let’s review what else Mr. Kerry-Heinz has told us.  He told us he earned 3 Purple Hearts in Vietnam, he just left out the fact that two of them were for self-inflicted wounds.  He told us that he spent Christmas of 1972 in Cambodia, but his shipmates confirmed that they were 30 miles from Cambodia.  He told us that American soldiers in Vietnam habitually committed War Crimes.  And he told us that the 14 Point Vietnam Peace Plan he presented to Congress was his, it was the Peace Plan he got in Paris when he was “negotiating” the North Vietnamese and Vietnam Cong.

And John Kerry-Heinz told us that the agreement reached with Iran last year was the absolute best deal that we could get and Iran would adhere to every point or we would cancel the deal.  And has also told us, on a number of occasions, that Barry is the greatest American president, which is laughable.  And now he is lying to us, yet, again about “Climate Change”. But then again, he is a liberal which means he lies first, last, and always.  Get the straight jacket ready, next will be air-conditioners and refrigerators because of climate change, this man is a complete idiot, period.

OBAMA, AGAIN HARPS ON ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’…

577

The analogy that I feel is most fitting, so is therefore the one I tend to use the most often whenever discussing Barry’s continuing fixation with the many times over discredited ‘climate change’ theory has to do with the striking similarities between his behavior and that of a dog and his, or her, favorite bone.  And we saw yet another example of this just this past Saturday when Barry chose to visit to Yosemite National Park and give a little speech, during which he made sure to make time to tout his administration’s environmental record and to warn Americans about the dangers of ‘climate change’, albeit, and is always the case, with false information.

It was in this little speech of his which he gave there at the park that Barry said, “Fires are raging across the west right now … all while it’s still really early in the season.”  And in doing so Barry now joins California Governor Jerry ‘Moon Beam’ Brown in making a connection that is at best deceptive, and at worst nothing but an outright lie, between wildfires and “climate change” that scientists long ago totally rejected.  But nothing new there, leftists like these two morons claim to big supporters of science, but it would seem that the only “science” they actually support is the “science” they can use to bolster their idiotic claims.

It was reported by numerous media outlets last October that scientists rebuked ‘Moon Beam’ over his attempt to link recent California wildfires to ‘climate change.’  And it was also reported, by the Los Angeles Times no less, in August how it was that old ‘Moon Beam’ blamed “climate change” for the Rocky fire in August, and specifically challenged Republican presidential candidates to tackle ‘climate change’ in the context of “Longer fire seasons, extreme weather and severe droughts.”  ‘Moon Beam’ proves the point how leftists always think that the government is the solution for every problem, even those problems that don’t actually exist.

Not surprising, scientists say that old ‘moon Beam’ is wrong and that the scientific evidence simply does not link recent fires to ‘climate change.’  Scientists even went so far as to accuse ‘Moon Beam’ of engaging in “noble-cause corruption” of ‘climate science.’  While fires could become more likely in the future, the link in the present has simply not been established. False statements like the Barry’s could, they warn, lead to inappropriate policies. Barry’s statement was only the latest in what has been a long string of many bogus examples of “climate change” hysteria that we have continued to hear coming from him and his party.

Earlier this month we heard Barry warning how in the not too distant future we would actually come to see Manhattan “underwater” unless action was taken, and soon, on ‘climate change.’  Scientists say that some portions of Manhattan ‘could’ experience flooding, but not the entire island, even under the most catastrophic models.  Barry also touted his administration’s record in expanding public lands and taking regulatory actions, including enforcing the Endangered Species Act.  That which many Californians blame for overzealous protection of the Delta smelt at the expense of water allocations to farmers.

I very much doubt that Barry, or any of the many other Democrats who support the cockamamie ‘climate change’ narrative actually believe that ‘climate change’ is taking place.  For them it’s nothing more than a means to an end, it’s about getting a carbon tax slush fund created which they can then dole out to their contributors and use to secure votes.  ‘Moon Beam’ showed the way, creating a tax that he admits is purely symbolic and will achieve nothing to lower global temperatures. And that he uses as a slush fund to reward union contributions with Bacon Act prevailing wage jobs by the hundreds of millions dollar.  Illegally might I add.

California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 provided for the carbon taxes but required that the taxes to be spent only on carbon reductive projects and programs. The Prop 1A that approved the Bullet Train Bonds required that the train be built only from the bond money, operating revenues and federal subsidies.  ‘Moon Beam’ has called for $500M a year of the carbon taxes to be spent on the train, that by a government study is not carbon reductive and violates Prop 1A specifically. A double violation of law, but since California is a Democrat operation from top to bottom, the issue is ignored by the government and it has been sitting in the courts for years.

And Al Gore who has made 10s, if not 100s, of millions for dollars off this scam has also showed the way.  He’s proven that you can say anything no matter how outrageous and still be able to cash in on the soft headed who demand to be taxed to save the earth, with a program that is admittedly incapable to having any real effect. Al Gore got rich off carbon credit trading, and Democrats expect to get rich and maintain power via carbon taxes.  So say anything, do anything, in order to get power and get rich, regarding ‘climate change’ in order to cash in and take what little disposable income the American people may still have.

Look, the fact is that Barry wasn’t really hired to do a job.  More than half of those who voted for this radical left-wing, Islamic collaborating, corrupt to his core, narcissistic, pathological liar of a Democrat did so for what they were promised for doing so.  Here in the 21st century we should be less concerned about such things as “affirmative action” and far more concerned about all of the idiots and enemies of the state that put him into office. I’m also pointing at all the right-wingers who seemed to see it as somehow making sense to either stay home on Election Day, or to waste their votes on third party candidates or write-ins.

And it’s many of those who are now once again making the same kind of noise and proving that they have learned absolutely nothing from the last two elections.  As I have tried to point out before, Trump is not the perfect candidate, but no matter how you choose to look at him when comparing him to Hitlery Clinton, who has repeatedly proven that hers would be a third Barry term, Trump has to be viewed as being the better choice.  I did not begin by being on the Trump train, but when my guy dropped out I was left with little choice but get onboard.  To do anything else would be to say that I support, or condone, the insanity that has occurred over the last 7+ years.

‘GLOBAL WARMING’: AL GORE’S PREDICTIONS PROVEN TO BE A BUST!!!

Al Gore 2

It was in honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of the release of Al Gore’s idiotic documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ that a group of enterprising young reporters recently sat down to re-watch that which was the very lucrative propaganda film to see just how closely Gore’s fearmongering about climate disaster actually matches up with reality.  Those who might have been paying attention at the time will remember how it was that Gore warned increasing carbon dioxide emissions would spur catastrophic global warming that would cause more extreme weather, wipe out cities and cause ecological collapse. To stop global warming, humans needed to ditch fossil fuels and basically change every aspect of their lives.

To sit down and watch Gore’s work of pure fiction would be like hopping in a time machine and taking a trip back in time and would be about as enjoyable as having a sharp stick jabbed in your eye.  You journey back to that time when flip phones were considered cool and “Futurama” was still putting out new episodes and to a world where a bitter presidential candidate was trying to rebrand himself as being some sort of an environmental crusader.  And in looking back at Gore’s many apocalyptic warnings, which were alarming to many back in 2006, how many have actually come true?  Just how well have Gore’s warnings of future climate disaster lined up with reality?  Was he truly the climate change Nostradamus of his time?

Gore’s been harping on climate change since at least the late 1980s, but it wasn’t until 2006 that he was finally able to strike it rich with the success of his propaganda film.  Gore opened his little film by first talking about nature before jumping to a presentation that he’s giving, one where he shows the first image ever taken of the Earth from space.  And it’s from that image that he then proceeds to jump to all sorts of unproven conclusions and begins making all manner of alarmist claims about global warming.  Not one of which has any basis in any actual science.  He simply makes everything up!  It’s really quite amazing.  Below are the highlights, or lowlights perhaps, regarding Gore’s convenient untruths:

1) Kilimanjaro? Still Snowy:

Gore claimed that Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak, would be snow-free “within the decade.”

Wrong. There’s still snow there year-round, and ecologists monitoring Kilimanjaro’s snowpack found that it may have shrunk a little, but they are confident it’s not going anywhere soon. “Preliminary findings show that the ice is nowhere near melting,” said Imani Kikoti, an ecologist at Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. “Much as we agree that the snow has declined over centuries, but we are comfortable that its total melt will not happen in the near future.”

2) Global Warming? Not Happening:

Gore claimed that a rise in temperature due to man-made carbon dioxide emissions was “uninterrupted and intensifying.”

Wrong. Global temperatures showed little-to-no warming after Gore released his film. In fact, as the Daily Caller notes, “surface temperature data showed no significant global warming for a period of about 15 years, starting in the early 2000s. Satellite-derived temperature data showed, until the recent El Niño, no statistically significant warming trend for more than 21 years.”

3) Storms Aren’t Stronger:

“And of course when the oceans get warmer, that causes stronger storms,” Gore said in the film. “That same year that we had that string of big hurricanes, we also set an all-time record for tornadoes.”

Gore’s film came out just after Hurricane Katrina. He mentions that the U.S. was hit with a string of severe storms in the early 2000s and that Japan saw a record number of typhoons. “The insurance industry has actually noticed this,” Gore said. “Their recovered losses are going up.”

But even findings from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the organization with which Gore shared the 2007 Nobel Prize, show that storms aren’t more extreme since 2006. The IPCC reported in 2103 that there “is limited evidence of changes in extremes associated with other climate variables since the mid-20th century.” The IPCC also found “no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century” and “[n]o robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes counts have been identified over the past 100 years in the North Atlantic basin.”

4) North Pole? Still Cold:

Gore claimed that the Arctic could be ice-free “within the next 50 to 70 years,” threatening extinction of polar bears and other Arctic animals.

But Chip Knappenberger, a climate scientist at the libertarian Cato Institute, states that the Arctic is almost completely surrounded by land, so the ice that forms there tends to stay there. Arctic ice coverage has shrunk in recent decades, but “I doubt the Arctic will be free of all ice in any summer, although the total area may well be greatly reduced in the future if it continues to warm there… Such a situation should not be overly worrisome, as there is ample evidence that it has occurred in the past and clearly, polar bears, and everything else up there managed to survive.” Polar bears are actually thriving despite the slightly shrinking ice coverage.

5) New Ice Age? Also Not Happening:

Gore warned that “At the end of the last ice age, as the last glacier was receding from North America, the ice melted and … an ice dam on the eastern border formed and one day it broke.” Fresh, cold water bled out into the North Atlantic, he claimed, causing the Gulf Stream to stall and sending Europe into another ice age. Gore then suggested that another Ice Age could begin if Greenland’s ice sheet melts and brings more cold water into the North Atlantic.  Australian scientists have since totally debunked this theory that the Gulf Stream, or AMOC, is weakening. “Claims of strengthening or reducing of the AMOC are therefore pure speculation,” they wrote in a paper published in March.

So the bottom line is that global warming isn’t exactly swelling the seas, but alarmism about it has certainly swelled Gore’s bank account. And while the movie was nothing short of a complete work of pure fiction, based on nothing more than bogus science, Gore was able to make for himself a rather considerable fortune from it.  Real science has never required fascism for its support, just solid theories with enough tangible signs and evidence that no legal force or bribed “consensus” was necessary.  The Spanish Inquisition was the last time legal powers forced people to swear an oath to their religion. History will record Democrats as being the instigators of the 21st century Democrat Inquisition.

But you must admit that old Al comes by his sleaziness pretty honestly, you might even say that it’s kind of a family tradition.  After all, his father was a crook, not to mention someone who was a hardcore racist as well, but that’s a-whole-nother story, for anther time.  But make no mistake, the bottom line here is that Gore is nothing but a shifty shit.  He’s the ‘Doug Neidermeyer’ of modern day climate change alarmists, and the dopes that have supported, and continue to support him, are nothing but empty-headed imbeciles.  Not one of the claims that he touted anywhere in his bizarre little movie ever materialized, not one.  And yet despite that fact, it’s we the nonbelievers of this farce who are the ones called names.

DEMOCRATS CLAIM THEY ARE SIMPLY TRYING TO SAVE US FROM OURSLEVES…

Climate Change 25

No matter who it is on the left that you may care to mention, they are all like a dog with a bone as they continue to harp on what remains to be their topic du jour, ‘climate change.’  Other than their recent, and very determined, drive to allow men into women’s restrooms, there’s very little that gets Democrats as worked up.  With each passing day it becomes increasingly obvious that there is literally nothing Democrats will not say in what has become their all-out offensive to instill in us as much fear as possible regarding some mythical apocalypse that a majority of bona fide scientists have told us will, quite simply, never occur.

And so it was again, just last week, on the day before John Kerry-Heinz would sit down to sign the much ballyhooed Paris climate change agreement at the United Nations, that we had yet another leftist Democrat, Jeff Merkley, take to the floor of the Senate, to give a speech on that very topic.  A speech which he described as being his way “to recognize the importance of the signing” of the Paris climate agreement, declaring “global warming is…the moral challenge of our generation.”  So once again we had one of our elected ‘leaders’ spewing what any rational human should be able to recognize, very easily, as pure bullshit.

This particular agreement, as you may recall, was completed back in December in Paris shortly after Muslim terrorists were able to kill 130 people and wound another 368 in that very city.  And it was on first day of this ‘conference’ that Barry made a speech, during which he made the idiotic statement that the meeting would symbolize a global “act of defiance” that proves the world stands undeterred by attacks linked to ISIS in Europe and beyond.  And in proving he’s either terminally naive, or a complete moron, Barry said, “What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshalling our best efforts to save it.”

And it was also in that very same speech that Barry said, “Our nations share a sense of urgency about this challenge and a growing realization that it is within our power to do something about it.”  And he would go on to add, “One of the enemies we’ll be fighting at this conference is cynicism … our progress should give us hope during these two weeks.”  But it’s not cynicism that’s the real enemy here when it comes to this totally concocted pipedream, the far greater enemy are these purveyors of such blatant dishonesty, who continue in their effort to force this lunacy down the throats of those who refuse to buy into it.

Which brings to last week when what we again saw emanating from right there on the floor of the Senate, in making reference to this idiotic agreement which has the United States joining in with 174 other countries in an effort to control emissions of “greenhouse” gasses, was nothing more than pure leftist propaganda.  This moron, Merkley, said, “This international climate accord is a tremendous step forward.”   However, unlike most Democrats, those of us who choose to live in the real world, what this agreement truly represents is nothing other than a monumental step backwards.  And a Republican president will need to disavow it.

Merkley went on to say, “It makes clear the world recognizes that global warming is a very significant and grave concern facing human civilization on this planet. It is, indeed, the moral challenge of our generation. I am proud and inspired by the global community’s unprecedented commitment to avert global warming, to avert a climate crisis.”  I think it’s more than a stretch to put forward the claim that “the world recognizes” global warming as a supposed threat.  While there is little doubt that the leftist elite do, the vast majority of the common folk are still able see it for what it is, as being nothing more than a huge scam.

Merkley said, “We know what the stakes are,” the senator said. “We don’t need computer models to look 50 years into the future because the impacts are here today. We see it in our own communities. We see it in our own States. We see it through the impact of droughts, the impact of wildfires, the impact of heat waves, the storms, the hurricanes, the tornadoes.” And he added, “We see it through story after story of this year or this month being the warmest ever recorded by humans.”  But the actual scientific data tells us is that there has been no warming that has taken place for over 15 years.  But the leftists refuse to accept it.

Look, it’s according to boobs like Merkley that everything can be tied to climate change.  If I spill my coffee it is directly related to ‘climate change’.  If I trip on a crack in the sidewalk, catch a cold, a bird poops on my car, or if a restaurant screws up my order it all can be directly related to ‘climate change’. And it’s only through a massive expansion of government, funded by unprecedented taxation that we will be able to solve this non-existent problem.  These idiots insist upon focusing on a nonissue while ignoring the truly critical issues of our time. They will destroy our civilization before they give up on their fantasies.

And so it is then that even after global warming, climate change, climate disruption, or whatever nomenclature the Democrats wish to use has clearly been shown to be a scam, we continue to see Democrats working so very hard to convince us that it is something which we truly need to be worried about.  But let’s be real, all of this sound the alarm on the part of Democrats has nothing to do with any genuine concern the left claims to possess regarding the current condition of our climate.  They continue to push it because they view it as providing them with yet another avenue allowing them to worm even further into our lives.

‘CLIMATE CHANGE’, THE LEFT’S GRAND SCHEME…

Climate Change 20

Regardless of the fact that a majority of those in this country refuse to buy into the continuing propaganda from Democrats and their many minions in the state-controlled media regarding what was once referred to, decades ago, as global cooling, then as global warming, then simply as climate change  and then, when nothing else seemed to apply, as climate disruption.  But a by any other name it’s still a scam.  And now it’s been reported, as we always knew it would, that Barry “Almighty’s” global warming scam would cost America’s poorest families Billions every year.  That’s according to a report recently published by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Barry’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 Billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 Billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Meanwhile, Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.  Perhaps here we have a reason why Democrat and wealthy liberals like George ‘Looney’ Clooney, Alec ‘The Moron’ Baldwin and of course Lenny DiCaprio seem to be so very firmly on the side of this insanity.

And oddly enough it’s the very ones who would be getting hit the hardest, if Barry and his Democrat allies are able to succeed with their plan, who insist upon voting for the very ones who agree with Barry that ‘climate change’ is to be the next great apocalypse to be face by man, and only man can do something about it.  So these people are doing nothing than to essentially make themselves poorer for no reason.  Because all of the money Barry wants to spend will accomplish nothing more than to drive energy costs up while having what will be virtually no impact on the climate. It simply makes no sense to support those who support this insanity.

What Barry wants to do is to implement the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, which would effectively tax four-fifths of American carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and be similar in scope to an economy-wide carbon tax.  In addition, Barry has also proposed a $10.25-per-barrel oil tax.  Neither plan would have a large impact on global warming/climate change. Data modeling created by the EPA and run by the libertarian Cato Institute shows that the Clean Power Plan would only have adverted 0.019° Celsius of warming by the year 2100, an amount so small that it couldn’t be detected.  So what’s really behind Barry’s plan?

Oren Cass is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and he is also the man who authored this specific study.  He said, “The greatest tragedy of the Democrats’ climate agenda is not how little it will accomplish but rather how costly it will be for those least able to afford it.” The study determined that taxing CO2 emissions or gasoline inherently hurts the poor far more than the rich because the lowest-income U.S. households spend roughly 35 percent of their annual income on energy; while the highest income households spent less than 3 percent of their income on energy.  And yet the Democrats portray themselves as being defenders of the poor.

The average American’s electric bill has already gone up 10 percent just since Barry took office in January, 2009, all due to federal regulations.  Granted to rich Hollywood types that a pretty trivial amount, but to many Americans it’s significant. The amount spent to meet global carbon dioxide emissions reduction goals could be as high as $16.5 Trillion between now and 2030, when energy efficiency measures are included, according to projections from the International Energy Agency (IEA). To put these numbers in perspective, the U.S. government is just over $19 Trillion in debt and only produced $17.4 Trillion in gross domestic product in 2014.

Wouldn’t it be nice for change that if what this next election resulted in was us electing a president who bases their policy on the hard facts of this issue.  Because if that were to actually occur the fact are easily available, all one has to do is want to pay attention to them.  As an example, here are but a few crucial, easily verifiable facts about human-generated carbon dioxide and its effect on global warming that he, and everyone else, needs to know and to better understand. The fact is, there has been global warming, but the contribution of human-generated carbon dioxide is necessarily so minuscule as to be nearly undetectable.

Here’s why:

  1. Carbon dioxide, considered the main vector for human-caused global warming, is some 0.038% of the atmosphere – a trace gas.
  2. Water vapor varies from 0% to 4%, and easily averages 1% or more near the Earth’s surface, where the greenhouse effect would be most important, and is about three times more effective a greenhouse gas than is carbon dioxide. So water vapor is at least 25 times more prevalent and three times more effective; that makes it at least 75 times more important to the greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide.
  3. The TOTAL contribution of carbon dioxide to the greenhouse effect is therefore 0.013 or less. The total human contribution to atmospheric carbon dioxide since the start of the industrial revolution has been estimated at about 25%.
  4. So humans’ carbon dioxide greenhouse effect is a quarter of 0.013, works out to about 0.00325. Total warming of the Earth by the greenhouse effect is widely accepted as about 33 degrees Centigrade, raising average temperature to 59 degrees Fahrenheit. So the contribution of anthropogenic carbon dioxide is less than 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit, or under 0.1 degree Centigrade. Global warming over the last century is thought by many to be 0.6 to 0.8 degrees Centigrade.

But that’s only the beginning:

  1. We’ve had global warming for more than 10,000 years, since the end of the last Ice Age, and there is evidence temperatures were actually somewhat warmer 9,000 years ago and again 4,500 to 8,000 years ago than they are today.
  2. Whatever caused that, it was not human activity. It was not all those coal burning power plants and factories and SUVs being operated by Stone Age cavemen while chipping arrowheads out of bits of flint. Whatever the cause was, it melted the glaciers that in North America once extended south to Long Island and parts of New York City into virtually complete disappearance (except for a few mountain remnants). That’s one big greenhouse effect!
  3. If we are still having global warming – and I suppose we could presume we are, given this 10,000 year history – it seems highly likely that it is still the overwhelmingly primary cause of continued warming, rather than our piddling 0.00325 contribution to the greenhouse effect. Yet even that trend-continuation today needs to be proven.
  4. Evidence is that the Medieval Warm Period centered on the 1200s was somewhat warmer than we are now, and the climate was clearly colder in the Little Ice Age in the 1600s than it is now. So we are within the range of normal up-and-down fluctuations without human greenhouse contributions that could be significant, or even measurable.
  5. The principal scientists arguing for human-caused global warming have been demonstrably disingenuous, and now you can see why. They have proven that they can not, and should not, be trusted.

The idea that we should be spending hundreds of Billions of dollars and hamstringing the economy of the entire world to reduce carbon dioxide emissions is beyond ludicrous in light of the facts stated above; it’s simply insane. Furthermore, it sucks attention and resources from seeking the other sources of warming and from coping with climate change and its effects in realistic ways. The true motivation underlying the global warming movement is almost certainly ideological and political in nature, and I predict that climate change, as currently presented, will go down as the greatest fraud of all time. It makes Ponzi and Madoff look like rookies by comparison.

ALEC BALDWIN, POSTER BOY FOR SOMETHING CALLED ‘CLIMATE CHANGE DERANGEMENT DISORDER’…

alec baldwin 1

Let me preface what I am about to say here by first saying that anyone who actually believes that entertainers, be they actors, singers, dancers or whatever, are in anyway knowledgeable about anything other than their chosen profession, I think can safely be said to be, at best, seriously misguided, and at worst terminally naïve.   Because when it comes to having received any kind of actual education most of these entertainment types never progressed much beyond high school and more than a few of them likely never even made it that far.  So it’s always best to take whatever they say, about almost anything, with a rather sizable grain of salt.

Now having said that, I think it reasonable to assume that most folks are quite familiar with the periodic fits of outlandish behavior frequently seen coming from that well-known Hollywood loon, Alec Baldwin.  After all, the guy has got quite a temper.  More than once over the course of the last few years his numerous bouts of what can only be described as pretty bizarre behavior have made him the subject of more than just a few news stories.  And it’s yet another example of that that now comes to us by way of a recent interview with AFP that apparently took place after Mr. Baldwin sounded off on climate change at the United Nations.

Baldwin, like most of those in that bastion of insanity called Hollywood, has a rather overinflated sense of importance.  And that was made quite apparent when he took it upon himself to describe those skeptical of ‘climate change’ as suffering from “mental illness.”  Something I think that we can all agree on is the fact that if there is a subject to which Mr. Baldwin can relate, it’s the subject of ‘mental illness’.  And so it was during his appearance at the U. N. that he said, “There can be no successful climate agreement and no future for our planet without greater protection of the world’s forests, everyone in the room understands this.”

And it was in his interview afterward with AFP that Baldwin said, “And so much of what’s coming on now is something that we have to treat as some kind of mental illness.”  He went on to say, “I believe the climate change denial is a form of mental illness.”  Actually, I think it can be said that to deny the overwhelming amount of actual science that proves beyond all doubt that it’s Baldwin and his ilk who, while they may not be suffering from mental illness, are most certainly suffering from some sort of disorder that has them being unable to deal with reality.  They insist upon living within their own little world of make believe.

The fact is that like Liberalism/progressivism, belief in ‘climate change’, can, I think, be said to be the equivalent of some sort of disorder, the symptoms of which include, but are not limited to, a total group think based on some universal doctrine that requires neither proof nor evidence of existence.  Plus, there is ALWAYS a blind and unquestioning loyalty to the Liberal high priests who control what the new narrative will be, and all must follow it regardless of the lack of any logic, evidence, or the likely destructiveness of said narrative, i.e. the new found outrage over one tenth of one percent using the opposite sexes bathroom.

The truth is that you cannot be a Liberal, plain and simple, without a belief in the existence of man-made ‘climate change’, it’s simply impossible.  Baldwin is simply another, on a very long list of many, Hollywood liberal/progressive with ZERO background in science and/or math. The climate has always been changing, it’s impossible for it not to and it’s going to continue to change regardless of what man does, or does not do.  Because man has very little to do with it. The big glowing yellow ball in the sky called the SUN is what has the number 1 influence on our climate, not the puny activities of man.

But look, like I said Baldwin does know a thing or two about mental illness. He’s one of those typical radicals who claim that people who view the “global warming by man” idea as not being probable, are denying that there is ‘climate change’ taking place. But nobody has ever said that.  Of course there is climate change taking place, where the disagreement comes in is whether or not it’s being caused by man and therefore man can do anything about it.  Which is absolutely nuts!  Does Baldwin realize that North America was once like the North Pole, covered with ice and snow and now it’s not?  That would be because of ‘climate change’.

Now you would think that especially someone like Baldwin, who so obviously views himself as being so much smarter than we the little people upon whom he relies for his livelihood, would be able to figure out for himself how it is that the world is not exactly like your house.  In that when you set your temperature at 75 your home will pretty much stay at 75 until you decide change the thermostat either warmer, or cooler.  But it would seem that that entire concept escapes him completely.  Now Mr. Baldwin is far from being the only one in his odd little clique who seems to possess zero understanding of what is actually occurring.

Because like so many of those who are so busy sounding the alarm over what they perceive as being the next great apocalypse to be faced by all of mankind, Baldwin finds it far more convenient to simply rely on that which is nothing more than the nearest endless stream of propaganda surrounding the issue than it is to actually go in search of the facts.  And it’s this propaganda that is based far more on leftwing politics than it is on any kind of provable science.  But it matters very little to those who are suffering from a psychosis that seems to inflict, for whatever reason, those in government and the entertainment business more than it does ordinary Americans.
