The above photo is taken from the British Guardian, one of the most inflammatory climate alarmist sources on the planet. It was brought to my inbox by Paul Homewood, a prolific writer and very erudite skeptic. He is inked here under “Not A Lot of People Know That, his blog. He titles his post “Guardian Readers are the Most Gullible on the Planet, New Data Shows.
I have but three problems with the article published in the Guaradian, which claims that Climate Change may unlock new pathogens, both viral and bacterial: 1) Viruses have never been proven to exist; 2) Bacteria feed on dead and dying tissue, and do not attack healthy hosts unless in an oxygen-free environment, and 3) Climate change, a scare propaganda campaign, is not real.
A remarkable video by Dr. Thomas Sheahen, well worth your time
Along those lines, Homewood also brought me a video today, 41 minutes I am afraid, by Dr. Thomas P. Sheahen. If you are of a scientific bent, Sheahen highlights the important work of William van Wijngaarden and Will Happer, who calculated the effects of the various greenhouse gases on climate and temperature. Their findings are vitally important, and due to their work, Sheahen concludes that climate change is not a problem, and that the effects of CO2 and methane on temperature are negligible and should be ignored. This link will take you to Homewood’s blog post that highlights the Sheahen talk. I listened this morning and found it riveting throughout.
The amazing thing contained in the video is the manner in which van Wijngaarden and Happer went about their business. They constructed mathematical models predicting the effects of the five or so greenhouse gases, and those models precisely captured those effects in the real world. They did not just come close – their results were dead-on. Anyone paying attention to IPCC reports knows that that august body makes predictions that do not come true. Ever. Yet government policies all over the world are based on those faulty predictions, leading me to believe that the Climate Change alarmist agenda is a false front behind which we will find the usual suspects, eugenicists and misanthropes intent on bending the population curve downward, dramatically.
ENSO produces rare third year of La Niña
Which reminds me of one more climate detail I ran across this morning. If you are familiar with ENSO, the El-Niño Southern Oscillation, you will know it has two phases, El Niño, which is responsible for heat spikes, and La Niña, the cooling phase that always follows. I did not know that we are in year two of La Niña, This article, Scientists Warn of a Rare Third Year of La Nina, leads to a scientific paper that goes into great detail (and has lots of math – too much for my little brain), the uptake for me being that due to a third year of cooling “Eurasia” could be in for “intense cold surges” this winter. I interpret Eurasia as all of Europe and Asia, and note that most of Europe is suffering shortages of natural gas and over-reliance on wind and solar, undependable energy sources.
This does not bode well for European citizens. As I see it the natural gas crunch they are in, sponsored by Russia (“Putin”), is a joint effort between east and west to squeeze Europe and make them suffer. Intense cold surges work to the advantage of the monsters behind the Climate Change movement. I normally don’t predict things, but if we get the surges mentioned above, people could well die off in large numbers in the coming months.
