The power of propaganda is to make something of nothing, but to do it so well that it puts people in a state of fear and keeps them there. I’ve been around a long time, maybe not as long as Clint Eastwood, and it has been going on my entire life. Covid is just the latest episode of a propaganda power play, well thought out years in advance and designed to scare the bejesus out of everyone. I was aghast at how much planning went into that scam. That’s well known to readers here.
Climate Change is just a little bit short of Covid power, and, like Covid, is absolutely based on nothing. I tell people all they have to do is stick their heads outside and look around and see that nothing is changing. But they do not listen, and anyway do not think their own thoughts. They believe in “experts.” The fear agitprop about climate has been going on since the late 1980s. To date, not one prediction made by any climate scientist or agent has come to fruition. It is simply stunning … the results they can achieve with televised news and fake science over real evidence.
I am writing this in order to demonstrate the power of honest information. I just got back from my daily tour of Watts Up With That, Anthony Watts’ web page, probably the most read climate science blog on the planet. He puts out an amazing amount of material, and has been at it for years. Today as I read I saw four really important articles right on the front page. So I am providing links, just for the hell of it during my period of self-quarantine leading up to very minor surgery on Thursday. I took a PCR test yesterday at 9AM, and by 8PM last night had the result, negative. I was far more worried about that than a hernia. Anyway, I ramble.
Here are the four articles in question:
- Europe is switching back to coal to survive a bleak winter. In case you are unaware, the EU is far ahead of the US in attempting to get to Net Zero. Its reliance on Windmills, and banning of fracking, has put it in peril of freezing in the dark. The wind is not blowing enough. So companies are returning to coal-fired power. There is talk that there may not be enough energy to heat homes. Be thankful, for now, that the US still has abundant supplies of natural gas and oil, neither of which will ever go away. Yes, they are drilling less, but we know the oil is there, and how to get to it. We will not be freezing in the dark. Sanity might return someday.
- La Nina: Globe expected to continue cooling into next year, extending cooling streak to seven years. La Nina is the flip side of ENSO, the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, a recurring weather pattern. Where El Niño tends to heat things up, La Nina cools things down. But I would bet that many readers, even here, did not know that the planet has been cooling these past seven years. Such matters are never reported in the mainstream.
- New evidence that humans populated the Americas during the last glacial maximum. I was taught that humans first came to North America over the ice bridge to Siberia some 11,500 years ago. I should have thought more about it, but I just trusted scientists, you know? I should adopt comedian Bill Burr’s attitude, that we should always remember that nobody knows shit. Footprints in White Sands National Park are said to be 23,000 years old. Researchers “… used radiocarbon dating of seed layers above and below the footprints to determine their age.” I do not think we know how long people have been here and will continue to stumble on new evidence like this.
- Shortening Northern Europe Summers … August temperatures have been cooling since, JMA data suggest. (Japan Meteorological Agency). “Last month we looked at July mean temperature data from the stations in northern Europe for which the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) have enough data and found northern Europe (Norway, Sweden and Finland) had seen no mid summer warming in 20 years. Now [the JMA] has the data for the same stations for August. Again the trends show late summer has been cooling, and not warming.” (my emphasis.)
Information like that absolutely confounds everything the IPCC and Climate Alarmists are saying. We are not getting warmer, but rather cooler, and that presents problems. Civilization thrives in warmer times, as during the Minoan, Roman, Medieval warm periods, and now, known as the Modern Warm Period.
Northern European countries picked a really bad time to rely on wind power. If sanity prevails, coal and natural gas will soon return to prominence.
And, if you are ever bored, give Watts Up With That a visit. If you are like me, you’ll be spending a lot of time there.
PS: I found another piece today over at Watts Up With That, Weekly Climate and Energy News, wherein a paper by Richard Lindzen is quoted. Scroll down to the words “Shortcomings of Skeptics.” It is most refreshing and worth our time. He describes exactly what I have done:
“In punching away at the clear shortcomings of the narrative of climate alarm, we have, perhaps, missed the most serious shortcoming: namely, that the whole narrative is pretty absurd.
That’s it! That is what I face every day with this subject, that the whole damned thing is a house of cards, some of the most specious science ever advanced. Lindzen also incidentally hones in on some other reading I am doing, Political Ponerology by Andrew Lobachevsky, which describes the evil done by psychopaths in our political systems. This is what we are dealing with here, psychopaths. Says Lindzen,
“…the proposed policies would leave us more vulnerable. This strongly suggests malicious intent.”
‘Frankly, I don’t think they actually believe what they are proclaiming – especially when they buy mansions on the coast. Rather, they look forward to the pain their policies will cause to a group that they appear to despise.’
Stop destroying them with details, and hit them hard where they are most vulnerable. Their ideas are absurd. Just absurd.
