Tuesday Was a Big Day for Climate Panic. Run for the Hills! by The Elephant's Child


Tuesday was a big day for all things climate. One Blythe Pepino who appears on CTV’s ‘Your Morning’, on Monday announced that since she has some power and privilege and has no children, no dependents, she is not going to give birth, to put pressure on our governments to “make the big changes we need for our survival” since the IPCC warned that the window to prevent catastrophic climate change is just 11 years.” Well, that should persuade the governments of the world.

“Extinction Rebellion” protesters turned out over the New York Times failure to provide enough coverage of the climate crisis. 70 people were arrested as they staged a “die-in” and disrupted traffic in front of the Times building.

In Oregon, Republicans left the legislature for other states to avoid having to vote on Governor Kate Brown’s unfortunate climate legislation.

With the Governor now threatening to use the state police to force Senators back to their chamber, it would be a good time to look at the cold, hard facts of what this bill will and won’t do.

The very basis for the bill is based on severely flawed science, the increased costs would be economically harmful and successful implementation would have virtually no effect on temperature. 

Here in Washington State, Governor Jay Inslee, 2020 presidential hopeful, is basing his entire campaign on “climate.” He said today that as president he can stop the influx of migrants at the border by solving the climate crisis. He claimed on MSNBC that the cause of the influx is the so-called climate crisis. Uh huh. His carbon tax will be damaging to the state, and accomplish nothing at all.

Climate scientists are appalled. Climatologist Dr.Judith Curry who notes that she has”devoted four decades to conducting research related to extreme weather events and climate change…The sense that extreme weather events are now more frequent or intense, caused by manmade global warming is symptomatic of “weather amnesia.” Her website is http://www.climate etc.

But the glaciers are melting (no they are not, they are growing) in Greenland, Iceland, Glacier National Park. Colorado just had a big dump of fresh snow. AOC knows nothing about the climate, she has become “click-bait” for the nutty things she says. Tom Steyer is a true believer, and a climate alarmist. The earth has been warming and cooling for millions of years, and is currently in a cooling phase.

Go to SEPP.org. ( The Science and Environmental Policy Project) and subscribe for a once weekly report in your e-mail about the climate news of the week. Visit Climate Depot, Dr, Roy Spencer.com and Watts Up With That – listed in the sidebar. Become an informed consumer of the news. The UN’s IPCC is not a reliable source for climate information. I keep pointing out that Christiana Figueres, the General Secretary of the IPCC announced some time ago — that “the goal of environmental activists was not to save the world from ecological calamity — but to destroy capitalism.” It is frightening the numbers of people who get all panicky because of a character like AOC or Tom Steyer, and don’t try to inform themselves by consulting real scientists.

Here’s what is actually going on:

Renewable energy is a myth. Wind turbines don’t produce enough energy because the wind is too intermittent. Sunlight is too diffuse. Both sources of energy require 24/7 backup from a conventional power source such as fossil fuels, natural gas, hydropower, or nuclear power. You wouldn’t like the society that would result from the loss of all that energy.
