I borrowed the phrase Narcissistic Malevolence from Jordan Peterson. He used it in reference to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who banned six million unvaccinated Canadians from traveling for months after the rest of the world had eased up on this insane and punitive policy. When I heard him use it, I immediately thought of Joe Biden and the leaders of the Climate Change Alarmist movement.
These people are malevolent. They want to harm us. They claim that CO2 is the control knob for climate change, and then set out to destroy nuclear power, which is CO2-free. I had a long conversation with Gaia and Ab about nuclear, as they claim that power plants merely absorb excess energy to keep the grid from boiling over. All I can say at this point is if nuclear power is an illusion, it is a grand one. I need to explore more than I have. Just understand that on the surface, shutting down nuclear plants directly contradicts any real desire to rein in CO2 in the atmosphere.
Climate alarmists are harming us with record gasoline prices and shortages of energy in Europe and England and Australia. But the long-term outlook is even more depressing, as they continue to push renewable energy even as they know it cannot replace fossil fuels. How do I know they know this? Because of the malevolence, the desire to harm us. Solar and wind contributes hardly anything to our net energy use, yet Biden is using that as a lever to shut down coal and oil production. He can read, he can even interpret a graph, and so knows exactly what he is doing.
I use the term “Biden” even as I know he appears to be an addled old fool. I long ago disabused myself of the notion that presidents are in charge of anything but reading teleprompters. I do not imagine he knows WTF he is talking about, any more than supposed Climate Scientists do. Biden is just a figurehead reading a Teleprompter, saying “Go fuck yourself San Diego.” (That’s a reference to Ron Burgundy and the movie Anchorman, in case you wonder why I suddenly let go with verbal abuse of a beautiful city.)
I just got done listening to a talk by Patrick Moore. I am linking to it rather than embedding it, as it is almost an hour long, and I cannot make such a claim on other people’s time. What I liked about the talk was the images and graphs he used. Generally speaking, most people do not know how to read a graph, so they do not convey useful information to targeted audience. My idea here is to keep it simple and add a brief description to a few of the graphs provided by Moore.
So I say I am going to keep it simple, and right away I hit you with spaghetti on the wall, right? But this graph is easy to interpret. It covers the last 570 million years, probably derived from Antarctic ice cores. The blue line is temperature, and there is no scale. However, our current temperature is about 14°C or 57°F, represented on the far right. All I can make of the blue line then is that in times past it has been much warmer, and at times much colder than now.
The purple line is CO2 levels in the atmosphere, and that is what makes this a simple graph to understand. Do you see a correlation between CO2 levels and temperature? Me neither. CO2 levels have been four times higher than now during ice ages! CO2 levels have been trending downward for ages, as can be seen by the bright green line. Plant life needs at least 180 PPM of CO2 to survive.
Do you see the red arrow, lower right? I put that there. If you note on the purple line, there is a slight uptick in CO2 today compared to the past. That tiny little uptick, insignificant, is what has everyone on the alarmist side in a tither.
This graph should be straightforward and easily understood.The longest running record of measured temperatures using thermometers is called HadCET, or Hadley Centre Central England Temperature dateset. This graph runs from 1659 to 2009. As you can see, temperatures have increased from slightly below 9°C to slightly less than 10°C in the 350 years shown on the graph, or about .03°C per century. Is that worrisome? No.
The black line represents CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere. Do you see any correlation between temperature and CO2? Yeah. Me neither.
Just for shits and giggles, I am placing the Michael Mann “Hockey Stick” as featured in Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth. I sized it up as much as I could because it represents 1,000 years compared to HadCET’s 350. From the red arrow, which I inserted, to the far right, is the data covered by HadCET. Do you see what I see? Mann has temperatures increasing by .5°C in the 20th century alone! This is completely at odds with HadCET, which shows perhaps 10% of that warming, if that.
Where did Mann get his data? Why is he at such odds with HadCET?
Mann did a lot of cherry picking, and avoided actual temperature records where possible. It was as if he was on a mission, to create a frightening image to scare people into believing that the planet is burning up. Since it is not, and since he is smart enough to know that, I think it safe to say he is paid to mislead us. That is all I can make of him and his junk science.
This one is easy to grasp – polar bear populations. Most people do not know that they were in severe decline in the 1950s, and were rescued by a 1973 treaty among arctic nations (Russia, Norway, US, Greenland and Canada) to stop hunting them (often enough for trophies). Since that time, the polar bear population stabilized, and then exploded to the point where Inuit people are now saying there are too many of them, and too many funerals as a result.
The population of polar bears is thriving. Is there anything more to say? Climate alarmists claim they are threatened by loss of sea ice, but that just another scare tactic. Arctic sea ice fluctuates and is currently robust.
The entire Arctic freezes over every winter. Did you know that?
This is a composite satellite image of the Pacific Ocean, done in such a way that no clouds are visible. If you look to the left of North America, about an inch out, you’ll see a small dot. Those are the Hawaiian Islands.
Above is a drawn image representing the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. They say it is twice the size of Texas, but I make it out to be almost as big as Alaska.
Here is the point: It does not exist. If it did, we would be able to spot it on the satellite image above, where we could even see Hawaii.
Why do they lie like that? I suppose they want to keep us on the edge of our seats, never allowing us to relax, never admitting that there really is no clear and present danger from climate or human interaction with climate. So they just make shit up.
Above is said to be the GPGP and efforts to contain it, to even clean it up. Do you notice anything out of place? Look where they place the GPGP in the image directly above this one, in the middle of the ocean and far off the coast of North America. What do you see in this photo? That’s right … land. This photo was taken in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima disaster that killed 20,000 people. The land is Japan. These people have no compunction about just flat out lying when it suits their ends.
By the way, plastic in the ocean is a problem. Most of it comes not from consumer goods, but rather fishing vessels that dump all of their used nets and lines overboard. Moore says we need an international agreement to force fishing boats to carry their debris home with them for disposal on land. They will not act unless forced to act, as it is not economical for them. It’s a problem for all.
Moore goes on in his talk to discuss how the Great Barrier Reef is healthy and not threatened. Climate alarmists like to use things like that because they are far away and invisible. The whole matter, as presented by Moore, is complicated and not easily visualized, so I suggest if you are interested to pick up in the video at 34:30.
In 2019 Netflix ran an episode of Our Planet claiming to show a bloody death scene of Walruses in the Arctic, blaming it on climate change. David Attenborough, who sacrificed his personal integrity and lost all credibility (at least outside climate alarmism circles) to advance this hoax, narrated. The claim that receding ice makes it impossible for walruses to hook up after calves are born led to them jumping off a cliff wall to their death, en masse.
It’s a lie, that is, these events, called “haul outs” have been going on for centuries, and are more extreme now as the walrus population is thriving, numbers are higher than ever before. It appears that having lost the polar bear wars, climate alarmists merely moved on to a new “threatened” species.
There’s another factor involved, a hunting tactic used by polar bears. A group of about twenty of them charged the walrus herd from behind, leaving them no choice but to be killed or to jump to their deaths. Those that chose the latter ended up a bloody mess on the beach, and there was a polar bear feeding frenzy.
Being a wild animal is no easy life.
[By the way, the camera crew that worked for BBC and Attenborough himself would have to have known the facts stated above. This makes them boldfaced liars knowingly running a scam on us.]
That’s a wrap, and far more work than I planned to do, but fun, nonetheless. As is apparent, the climate change alarmists are without conscience, and far more scheming and dishonest than anyone (but a few of us) knows. They succeed in their bizarre lies because of media support, wall-to-wall propaganda, as Rappaport calls it. We can only do what we do, fight lies with truth, and call liars and cowards out into the light of sunshine.
