Did you hear the news? We’re all going to die.

One of the Great Modern Hoaxes of the 20th and 21st centuries has got to be the notion of Global Warming.  This is the meteorological phenomenon that happens when too many politicians talk about ways to take your money at once.  All that exhaled carbon dioxide has been classified by the EPA as a ‘pollutant’ and so the political figures who go on and on about this impending doom are really creating it by the act of opening their mouths and speaking about it.

Oh, wait.  That’s not what Global Warming is… Let me try to correct myself.

Global warming is when the planet overheats because of an excess amount of Carbon Dioxide, a trace gas in the atmosphere.  This gas is so poisonous that it will kill people if you breathe it in pure form, and it will cause the earth’s atmosphere to trap the heat received from the sun, all the ice will melt, our cities will flood and we’re all going to die.

Oh, wait (again).  Some of that was supposed to have happened already.  We had predictions that the Arctic Ocean would be ice-free by 2007.  Then it was supposed to be ice free in 2012.  Well, the Arctic ice situation looks like this as of January 9th, 2018:

This pinkish color is indicative of an ice thickness in excess of 50 cm, or about one and a half feet.  The gray circle around the pole is probably just a circle of missing data, as can happen in some of these surveys.

But it is about the trends, isn’t it?

But what about the trends?  Isn’t ice going away?  Well, yes and no. In the Arctic it is significantly less than it has been during the period from 1981 to 2010. But that datapoint is still in excess of 12 million square kilometers of ice at present, and there is a lot of winter to go.

The Antarctic has seen some different trends take place over the recent years. The overall trend for 30 years in this part of the world is an increasing amount of sea ice (though that did also drop in the last two years rather markedly). But most of you probably never see gloom and doom news about this.

The Compleat Problem of the Polar Bear Population Explosion

One thing that climate change believers hammer over and over is that the elimination of Arctic sea ice will kill polar bears (because “they have to swim farther for their food”).  This is a dubious claim, however.  Polar bears love to eat ringed seals, and the seals prefer in most cases to be on thick ice floes.  However, their own food is likely more sparse in the middle of the Arctic ocean, because this ocean, like our others, is something like a desert when one is away from shore and the water is 10,000 to 12,000 feet deep with no islands.  This is the case for the Arctic ocean.  So while some seals will go far to the north, their food supply is relatively low. The greater amount of food is going to be found in shallower waters, which usually means that there is going to be land nearby for undersea plants and aquatic life to exist in greater quantity.  So the seal population on shore is probably quite high, too, and this leads to some good eating for polar bears.

There seems to be no connection between the polar bear population and diminishing sea ice. In fact, while sea ice levels have certainly shown a drop since at least 1970, the polar bear population has overall increased by some 16 percent, as written here.

There does seem to be some population change by region, with the notable place of a population drop being around the north coast of Alaska and Western Canada.  However, farther east there are two known areas of increasing population, with many further areas showing stability.  This could simply mean that the bears may be moving from region to region.  While they may be following the relocation of Arctic ice floes, it does not necessarily mean they are dying because there is not ice in a given area.

So, the bears do not seem to be in trouble.

So, about all that hot air that’s supposed to kill us…

Politicians and social activists, on the other hand, do seem to be in trouble.  At the time of this writing, Drudge carried three pieces from activists all promising gloom and doom. The only one who is anything close to a scientist is the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.  He insisted that the earth will become unbearably hot because of climate change “if something isn’t done” – and he offered the hyperbolic statement that anyone wanting to understand this situation should study or even go to Venus, where a runaway greenhouse effect is credited for that world’s ambient temperature of over 460 degrees C (864 F).

Prince Charles of Wales was our second celebrity to trumpet the impending demise of us all, but he gave us a bit of reprieve.  Whereas in 2009 he gave the world 96 months to “change our ways” or be consumed by heat-death, he has now graciously extended our live expectancy before doom to 35 years from now.  One wonders what he wants to do that will take him 35 years to accomplish.

The third doomsday crier is the one that actually also calls for the solution to this problem. Washington State Democrat Governer Jay Inslee gave the most dire warning of all: 59 days to save our children from global warming.  But he has the solution to the problem as well, so we ought to consider what he says.

You see, the solution to climate change / climate disruption / global warming / alien invasion / medical care / dogs and cats living together – is one thing.

Money.

Your money.  (And the liberal will emphasize that, saying “your money (and not mine)”)

Governor Inslee wants his state to pass a tax on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and other industries.

Inslee’s plan would tax carbon dioxide emissions at $20 a ton in 2019, that would gradually rise at 3.5 percent above inflation each following year. Inslee’s office estimates it will raise $3.3 billion over the next four years.

About $950 million would go toward education programs. The rest would go toward green energy programs and research, water infrastructure, wildfire mitigation. Some money would offset taxes or go to poor families.

This is all very well and good, except for the premise.  The real issue here is a money grab.  This idea sounds great on paper, but there is precious little said that explains how money is going to remove excess CO2 from the air. It does go a long way towards explaining how this politician wants to remove what he considers excess cash from your wallet.

Who is the fool – the fool, or the fool that follows him?

I am obviously not a believer in the climate change religion.  I am also not a climatologist or a meteorologist, though I study these fields fairly extensively as a hobby.  There is only one certain thing I can say about this matter, though, and it is reflected by scientists in virtually every field.

When you think you are totally right, you’re likely to find out you have been totally wrong.

Climate study is an extremely new science.  We have many technical gadgets at our disposal now to help us study the history of climate.  But we also have very limited understanding of weather even in as short term a forecast as 20 minutes, let alone one day, or one year.  As it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere, I ask the reader to consider the accuracy of snowstorm predictions in your area.  How often are they right?  Have you ever noticed how erratic such forecasts can be? We can observe patterns, but I would opine that the book on what climatology is has yet to be written.  We are learning, but it is absurd to say that we can know anything about this field right now.

While I totally agree about the necessity of having a clean environment, this added scree about global warming and impending doom is a sad commentary on our wish not to be responsible.  We have to be frightened into action, but then when it comes clear, as it has been lately, that the climate change hype is really a hoax and a fabrication, the end result might actually be rather unfortunate.  However, everything that longer-term studies show seems to indicate that Mother Earth has regulated herself pretty well with and without human interference, and if anything, it is we who must be a bit wiser about where we settle and live and work, because we create our own problems when we defy nature.  A good way to lose your home is to build it on a coast that risks exposure to a major hurricane, for example. A good way to make forest fires is to refuse to let nature control overgrowth naturally.  We are learning these things. One hopes that we would learn more.

It will make polar bears everywhere very, very happy. Probably the rest of us, too.

Data has obtained, from ice cores predominantly, of recorded spikes in the isotope Beryllium 40 which peaks with excess solar activity, and has been associated with monitored climate rise spikes. Over the past few thousands of years, 3 have been shown from hard forensic evidence to have occurred and all at regular, predicted, cyclic time points. The recent peak is in, just on time. If fact, had we not had a little warming now, we would have had cause to be alarmed. To have evidence to expect an occurrence, and it occurs, is comforting, If it doesn’t you have to… Read more »

Not to mention the chem trails that are looming over our countries every day now,the ‘climate experts’ have already started to spray these chem trails and shortly the MSM will tell us via the control medium of your choice, that they have been spraying around the planet..and that is why the warming has not been too bad… But until that day,if you mention the constant chem trails being sprayed and hanging in the sky for hours ,as opposed to con trails,[ which dissipate within minutes],you will be labelled as crazy,you are only ‘not crazy’ when the MSM starts to mention… Read more »

Yes, where I Lived in Australia before I left, a small country town, they regularly sprayed. As we were also under the Melbourne – Sydney flight path you could easily see the difference and compare characteristics. I can give my testimony of this, and still get labeled an idiot and “conspiracy theorist”. !!
Cognitive Dissonance, when someone presents you with physical reality which shows you how wrong are your nice comfy perceptions, is very distressing to many – they’d rather cling to their Painted Veil perception even if it kills them.

Ignorance is bliss to the sheeple.
When in doubt..just add more Soma to keep the people …relaxed.That is why the drug laws are being relaxed around the planet…”got to keep the customers satisfied….”? NWO …come on down.

Now that’s an interesting “take” on why the drug laws are changing – but not in Russia.
However, I think also they may have decided ot give in. The laws are having no effect whatsoever, in fact drug usage is growing exponentially. Another part I suspect of a collapsing civilisation – however, as you say, it may because the PTB think it will keep the mushrooms more buried in their selected darkness.

It’s a Pole Shift. It’s not man made. It’s a Cycle. They have been trying to Geo-engineer the climate to keep it the same because the most powerful and rich countries have the best climates and they don’t want that to change. If it changes, those who control the world will no longer be in control.

For damn sure…we ARE ALL going down. This is a one way street…from the moment of conception it is downhill all the way. From creation/crawling out of the slime/spatial interference/whatever it has always been so. No matter how we live, we will die…attempts to instill ‘civilization’, good manners and proper behavior sooner or later all comes to naught as we cycle through alternating ‘Dark Ages’ and periods of ‘Light’…and of course there are always those who KNOW what is best for us…and damn it ‘levity’ and enjoyment of ‘living’ are usually NOT on their agendas…and any deviation from their ‘prescribed… Read more »

Canadian Lawmaker Accuses Trudeau Of Being A “Fake Feminist” (Video)

Rempel segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career

Published

on

Via Zerohedge

Canada’s feminist-in-chief Justin Trudeau wants to support and empower women…but his support stops at the point where said women start creating problems for his political agenda.

That was the criticism levied against the prime minister on Friday by a conservative lawmaker, who took the PM to task for “muzzling strong, principled women” during a debate in the House of Commons.

“He asked for strong women, and this is what they look like!” said conservative MP Michelle Rempel, referring to the former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who has accused Trudeau and his cronies of pushing her out of the cabinet after she refused to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to a Quebec-based engineering firm.

She then accused Trudeau of being a “fake feminist”.

“That’s not what a feminist looks like…Every day that he refuses to allow the attorney general to testify and tell her story is another day he’s a fake feminist!”

Trudeau was so taken aback by Rempel’s tirade, that he apparently forgot which language he should respond in.

But Rempel wasn’t finished. She then segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career. This from a man who once objected to the continued use of the word “mankind” (suggesting we use “peoplekind” instead).

The conservative opposition then tried to summon Wilson-Raybould to appear before the Commons for another hearing (during her last appearance, she shared her account of how the PM and employees in the PM’s office and privy council barraged her with demands that she quash the government’s pursuit of SNC-Lavalin over charges that the firm bribed Libyan government officials). Wilson-Raybould left the Trudeau cabinet after she was abruptly moved to a different ministerial post – a move that was widely seen as a demotion.

Trudeau has acknowledged that he put in a good word on the firm’s behalf with Wilson-Raybould, but insists that he always maintained the final decision on the case was hers and hers alone.

Fortunately for Canadians who agree with Rempel, it’s very possible that Trudeau – who has so far resisted calls to resign – won’t be in power much longer, as the scandal has cost Trudeau’s liberals the lead in the polls for the October election.

Tucker Carlson summarizes the Trump and Russian collusion saga [Video]

Tucker Carlson excoriates the slander against President Trump, but goes farther to call out the establishment elite in their crimes.

Seraphim Hanisch

Published

on

Speculation this week has been rather strong that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III is about to release his report concerning his investigation in to the allegation that Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with elements of the government of the Russian Federation to…?

What, exactly?

That is where things get a little unclear. The narrative line says to “influence the 2016 presidential elections”, or “to steal the election from Hillary Clinton” – but that is about as far as any official narrative line goes. This ambiguity, masquerading as clear language, has created a further belief among a very large number of Americans that what actually happened was that this collusion actually extended into some form of vote-tampering, and amazingly, a recent poll Tucker Carlson mentions in his video we offer here says that some 53% of Americans actually believe that somehow the election results were altered by the Russians.

The question Tucker Carlson leads his report with is, “did the President betray his country?” However, as one goes through the list of events, insinuations, fabrications, attacks and nonstop innuendo that has led the US and Russian relations to their worst point since the Cold War, for no specifically stated and verified reason, one wonders who is doing the betrayal.

Now, in one sense, America owes no allegiance to Russia. But Russia also owes no allegiance to America, and the idea that Russia should is part of this effort by the American establishment. That establishment seems to believe that all the world should owe allegiance to the United States, at least as shown by words and actions of the Americans vis-a-vie foreign policy matters. But the truth is much closer to President Trump’s own notion of a brotherhood of nation-states rather than hegemony. He stated this noble thought in his first UN address in 2017:

Being in a brotherhood relationship with Russia and China is apparently beyond the pale for the American political establishment, hence, the Russia collusion investigation and over two years of nonstop slander, ostensibly designed to keep this from happening.

This is one reason why the notion that Mr. Mueller will actually release a report now is being met with a lot of distrust. We have heard rumors from DC for probably well over one year that the “report was imminent”, but nothing ever came of it. Even this week, Vox reported that the Mueller office asked for an eleven-day filing deadline extension for some reason.

To be blatantly speculative, the likelihood is that the report is every bit of a non-event as the pro-Trump crowd believes it is. However, bringing a stop to the President’s hoped-for policy is something that must not happen. The chances are therefore that whatever is released (if anything) will also be somehow curiously coincidental with some very similar allegation coming from somewhere that shows that while Mueller didn’t find anything, someone else did… and then the full-on media blocking has a new basis for continuing its efforts to disrupt and even destroy the work of the current administration.

As a parenthetical side note, Tucker Carlson is known for excellence in reporting and following stories like this one. What is particularly striking in this video is the directness with which he calls out other examples of very bad policy and actions that resulted in zero punishment for the people who did it. In particular, he calls out the whole 2003 Iraq War noting that the narrative of “weapons of mass destruction” was similarly false, costing thousands of American lives (not to mention the hundreds of thousands that died in Iraq) and a trillion dollars wasted, yet the chief players in that event, such as John Bolton still hold important posts in US government today. The bitter truth is that there remains a strong “untouchability” in Washington, and there is nothing that is likely to change that except President Trump.

Perhaps that is the reason for the resistance to his presence there.

New Zealand weapons ban dream move of leftist activists

The American left is sure to pick this up and start screaming for an “assault weapons ban” because this supports their agenda so well.

Seraphim Hanisch

Published

on

Reuters reported on Thursday, March 21 that the Prime Minister of New Zealand enacted a sweeping change, banning weapons of the type that were used in the massacre of at least fifty Muslims, who were gunned down on livestream while in Friday prayer services in Christchurch last week. We quote from the Reuters piece below, with added emphasis:

New Zealand will ban military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles under tough new gun laws following the killing of 50 people in its worst mass shooting, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Thursday.

In the immediate aftermath of last Friday’s shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, Ardern labeled the attack as terrorism and said New Zealand’s gun laws would change.

“On 15 March our history changed forever. Now, our laws will too. We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place,” Ardern told a news conference.

“All semi-automatic weapons used during the terrorist attack on Friday 15 March will be banned.”

Ardern said she expected the new laws to be in place by April 11 and a buy-back scheme costing up to NZ$200 million ($138 million) would be established for banned weapons.

All military style semi-automatics (MSSA) and assault rifles would be banned, along with parts used to convert weapons into MSSAs and all high-capacity magazines.

Australia banned semi-automatic weapons and launched a gun buy-back after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996 in which 35 people were killed.

Ardern said that similar to Australia, the law would allow for strictly enforced exemptions for farmers for pest control and animal welfare.

“I strongly believe that the vast majority of legitimate gun owners in New Zealand will understand that these moves are in the national interest, and will take these changes in their stride.”

This is undoubtedly going to be real red meat (or perhaps real vegetables) for the anti-gun lobby in the United States. This is because New Zealand strongly resembled the US in terms of firearm rights and the penetration of numbers of guns in the populace of this remote island nation. Reuters continues, with statements that would probably surprise, even horrify some gun owners in the States, but which are doubtlessly useful for the application of pressure on such individuals:

New Zealand, a country of fewer than 5 million people, has an estimated 1.2-1.5 million firearms, about 13,500 of them MSSA-type weapons.

Most farmers own guns while hunting of deer, pigs and goats is popular. Gun clubs and shooting ranges dot the country.

That has created a powerful lobby that has thwarted previous attempts to tighten gun laws.

Federated Farmers, which represent thousands of farmers, said it supported the new laws.

“This will not be popular among some of our members but … we believe this is the only practicable solution,” a group spokesman, Miles Anderson, said in a statement.

The main opposition National Party, which draws strong support in rural areas, said it also supported the ban.

The changes exclude two general classes of firearms commonly used for hunting, pest control and stock management on farms.

“I have a military style weapon. But to be fair, I don’t really use it, I don’t really need it,” said Noel Womersley, who slaughters cpoliticalattle for small farmers around Christchurch.

“So I’m quite happy to hand mine over.”

To be absolutely fair, the attack on the mosques was an awful event, made the worse by the shooter’s deliberate attempts to politicize various aspects of what he was doing and what he “stood for” as an attack ostensibly against US President Donald Trump, some seven thousand miles away in the United States.

The immediate reaction of the people interviewed, some among them related or friends with the victims of the massacre, was to embrace the weapons reform laws:

Nada Tawfeek, who buried her father-in-law killed in the attacks, Hussein Moustafa, on Thursday, welcomed the ban.

“It’s a great reaction. I think other countries need to learn from her [Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern],” Tawfeek said.

Mohammed Faqih, a member of the Islamic clergy who flew in from California and attended the funerals for some victims on Thursday, said he was “extremely grateful” for the gun ban.

“I wish our leaders in the States would follow on her footsteps and do the same thing,” he said.

One can expect there to be quite the outcry among American liberals about gun control, especially if anything remotely resembling this event takes place or is thwarted in coming days in the US.

It may seem very cold and cruel to focus on the political angle of this story rather than the human tragedy that it is. However, in this situation we have seen signs that the most vile form of human tragedy has actually taken place – the murder of dozens of innocent people for a mere political point. Indeed this thought has been noted and vilified already, as Mr. R.X. Dentith, writing for the New Zealand website Spinoff here quoted:

American paleo-conservative Rush Limbaugh was one of the first to note: “There’s an ongoing theory that the shooter himself may, in fact, be a leftist who writes the manifesto and then goes out and performs the deed purposely to smear his political enemies, knowing he’s going to get shot in the process. You know you just can’t – you can’t immediately discount this. The left is this insane, they are this crazy. And then if that’s exactly what the guy is trying to do then he’s hit a home run, because right there on Fox News: ‘Shooter is an admitted white nationalist who hates immigrants.’”

…[P]eople like Limbaugh… can’t stomach the idea the terrorist action in Otautahi might be motivated by the kind of rhetoric Limbaugh helps disseminate – tend to think there is a culture war going on, and they are on the losing side.

This war has many names, and the enemy is easily identified: it is the battle against Cultural Marxism; the fight against Toxic Feminism; the resistance to Identity Politics; and the fear of the Great Replacement, the thesis at the heart of the terrorist’s own manifesto.

The Great Replacement thesis posits that the majority white European countries are being “invaded” by non-white, non-European peoples. Not just that, but due to declining birth rates in the West, this “invasion” constitutes a wholesale replacement of the white population over time.

Mr. Dentith tries further to knock down this notion of the Great Replacement. However, he misses a much more basic point.

Someone who goes and takes human lives and broadcasts them for any reason is not a mere political operative. The person who does this is a very sick, deranged human being indeed. Evil is certainly appropriately used here.

However, evil is often quite cunning, and despite the intellectual arguments about the reality or non-reality of any particular manifesto statement, in this case, the killer played the media with infernal intelligence, and they took the bait. It is possible that Prime Minister Ardern also took the bait, in this most awful of bad situations, and to give her credit, she took swift actions to try to “correct” what was wrong.

But the problem here was not the type of weapons used. The problem is the fact that they were used by a person who thought these fifty people’s lives were worth nothing more than a bit of policy change. One of the worst examples of human evil in recent times, this incident shouts to the world that there is a problem, but the problem remains unsolved, even though many people will hand over their firearms out of a genuine wish for compassion to those lost and the hope that somehow this action will prevent a future incident.

But the logic of this emotional reaction is nil. And what is worse is that the American Left knows this, but does not care. The movers and shakers of liberalism will likely milk the actions of sincerely horrified New Zealanders for all they are worth to try at affecting change in American constitutional rights.

And the innocent dead will not rest in peace, because the real problem has not even been examined.
