What if There is No Climate Emergency At All? by The Elephant's Child

When Greta Thunberg arrived in Madrid for the big climate meeting, there was an “unprecedented demonstration” for protection from the climate in the Spanish capital, supposedly involving 500,000 participants. However, the federal police said there were about 15,000 demonstrators.

This seems to be a fairly usual story in all things climate. The notrickszone website adds:

There were, as usual, no scientific facts to be found, but a lot of feeling, self-righteousness and general demands to an ominous elite, who officially stand behind Thunberg’s FFF.  (fact free fantasy)

NoTricksZone also links to a headline from 2018 that notes that over “100+ Scientific Papers find that there is Low Climate Sensitivity to Doubled CO².”  They find that the climate’s sensitivity to doubled CO² ranges from less than zero to 1º C.

From The German Spiegel Online, Dec. 7, 2019

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia: “It’s the longest dry period that we have ever had.”

The Victoria Falls are considered to be the widest waterfall in the world. But instead of the usual quantities that plunge into its depths, there is a drought – tourists have also gone absent. The mood there is gloomy.”

And, of course, it is being immediately attempted to explain the water flow with man-made climate change. The Guardian wrote on the same day:

Data from the Zambezi River Authority shows water flow at its lowest since 1995, and well under the long-term average. Zambian president, Edgar Lungu, has called it ‘a stark reminder of what climate change is doing to our environment’.”

Spiegel calls it the worst drought ever. The Guardian calls it the worst drought since 1995. That’s a small difference.

Here are excerpts from The Climate Talking Points Report delivered to the UN Climate Summit in Madrid:

MADRID, Spain – How to Talk About Climate Change Issues & Alleged “Solutions” – 2020

INTRODUCTION: Global warming hype and hysteria continue to dominate the news media, academia, schools, the United Nations, and the U.S. government. The Green New Deal being pushed on Capitol Hill and in the 2020 presidential race is based upon “solving” an alleged “climate crisis.”

Teen school-skipping climate activists are testifying to the U.S. Congress and the United Nations and young children are being recruited for lawsuits against the U.S. government for its alleged climate “inaction.” The phrase ‘climate emergency’ has emerged as the favorite for climate campaigners.

But the arguments put forth by global warming advocates grossly distort the true facts on a host of issues, ranging from rising sea levels and record temperatures to melting polar caps and polar bears, among others. In short, there is no “climate crisis” or a “climate emergency.”

The UN, climate activists, the media, and academia are using the climate scare as an opportunity to lobby for their alleged “solutions” which require massive government expansion and central planning.

This talking points memo is designed to arm people with the voices of the rising number of scientists, the latest data, peer-reviewed studies on key facts so they can better engage in climate change debate with those advocating the UN/Al Gore/Green New Deal positions.

The global warming movement has morphed into a coalition of “climate cause deniers.” They deny the hundreds of causes and variables that influence climate change and instead try to pretend that carbon dioxide is the climate “control knob” overriding all the others factors and they pretend that every bad weather even it somehow “proof” of their “global warming.”

The Los Angeles Times supports mandated relocation of coastal properties based on climate alarmist flawed sea level rise claims. I have noted before that the World’s 76 best Tide Gauges show a mean 0.34 mm rise. That’s not even one millimeter! And if you don’t know how big a millimeter is, look it up. We have a case of mass hysteria going on.

Do remember that I just pointed out that Nancy Pelosi just took a body of House Democrats en-masse to Madrid for the big bash, and to tell the UN Climate meeting there that the U.S is not out of the Paris Climate Accords. “We’re Still in” she told them. I believe that is in President Trump’s jurisdiction, since it is not a treaty. It is widely agreed that the Paris Climate Accords were designed to transfer a great deal of money from the wealthy nations to the very poor nations of the world.

 



Elizabeth Warren Destroying Her Campaign One Speech at a Time by The Elephant's Child

A writer at the Opinion Page of the Wall Street Journal remarked several years ago that “Elizabeth Warren has only a child-like understanding of economics.” That was so spot-on that I’ve always remembered it.

Elizabeth Warren

@ewarren

Seems like she has only a child-like understanding of the Constitution as well. There really is a very sound and longstanding reason for the Electoral College, and it is to protect the people’s vote from people like Elizabeth Warren, who was a law professor, was she not?


What We have Been Reading and Mulling Over: by The Elephant's Child

At Commentary:  John Steele Gordon asks: “Has the American Economy ever been in better shape than it is today? The answer, frankly, is no.”

The American economy continues its robust growth. Two hundred sixty-six thousand new jobs were added in November, well above expectations, while the unemployment rate dropped back to September’s and October’s jobs numbers adjusted upwards, job growth has averaged 208,000 jobs for the last three months.

At Powerline blog: By Scott Johnson “BARR IS ON THE CASE”

Attorney General William Barr sat for an extended interview with NBC’s Pete Williams to discuss the findings in the Department of Justice Inspector General report released yesterday afternoon. NBC has cut the thing up in a couple of stories, but it has also posted the whole thing on YouTube (24-minute video below).

If you can find the time, do watch the video. Attorney General William Barr will make you feel like there are still some grownups here.

Scott followed that up with BARR IS ON THE Case 2

At National Review: “The Articles of Impeachment are Very Weak” by Andy McCarthy:

The charges range from insignificant to implausible to inane.

Democrats rolled out two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday, alleging abuse of power and obstruction.

As noted over the weekend, I had to correct myself when writing that the impeachment inquiry that led to this point was a “rush to judgment.” The judgment was made long ago. The president has been Impeached Man Walking for “The Resistance” since before he took the oath of office. The House proceedings have been a matter of rushing the process until it catches up to a judgment of three years’ standing.

The Democrats have oversold the impeachment idea. How could they help it? Their Crazies are loudly proclaiming how horrible Trump is daily and demanding his removal from office. They have gone too far, and their arguments are falling apart. The FBI is in deep trouble. Much is yet to come, including the other investigation.
