How to debunk the Climate-Scaremongers! by The Elephant's Child

Much of the mischief going on in our government, the inflation, bad regulations, unemployment, high taxes, is based on a faulty belief that “climate change” is an upcoming disaster for our Earth. I’m sure you remember the autistic child from Sweden who came to the United States on a sailboat to lecture the United Nations on the matter. All sorts of publicity and she even got her picture painted on some building in San Francisco, and did actually scold the U.N. Lots of publicity.

The alarm seems to have originated in Davos. Christiana Figueres, who was at the time the General Secretary of the IPCC, held a press conference, I think it was in 2013, and explained to the assembled reporters that addressing climate change was the world’s best chance of saving the world from the ravages of Capitalism. The reputable scientists keep explaining that the climate of the Earth is controlled by the Sun, and there is no problem, but a remarkable number of people seem to be true believers, probably never have read anything about climate at all. They just heard it was a big problem and we have to DO SOMETHING right now.

President Joe Biden is a true believer. He eliminated the XL Pipeline that was building to take Canadian oil to the Gulf of Mexico after it was refined in American Refineries to customers all over the world. In eliminating the pipeline with a stroke of his pen, Biden also eliminated several thousand high paying jobs, and accomplished nothing at all. Now he wants to build offshore wind farms on each of our coasts.

When the U.S. first started paying attention to the claims of disastrous climate change, grants went out from the federal government to university science labs all over the country, which was a very big deal indeed. Meant new equipment, grants, assistants. prestige for quiet departments slumbering along. They quickly fired up their computers, entered everything they knew about climate, which wasn’t really very much, and some intelligent guesses, and some possible, and started cranking out “information”. CO2, carbon dioxide, became the bogeyman, and the results were wind farms, solar arrays, huge costs, Did you know that it costs something like $35,000 just to take down a wind turbine, and nothing cam be recycled, so it all has to go in the landfill. Wind turbines and solar arrays cannot produce the energy needed by a modern industrial society. If you are interested, enter “Solyndra” in the space over Bob Hope’s head in the sidebar, to see what one disastrous effort entailed.

CO2, carbon dioxide, which is supposed to be the big bogeyman, is a natural fertilizer for plants. Helps to feed the hungry and make crops all over the world more bountiful. This is where my previous piece on the obligation to read comes in. Patrick Moore, who was one of the founders of Greenpeace, says: “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life. He has a dandy book out titled Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom”that you will not only enjoy, but will give you the needed armor against the misguided panic afflicted. Did you know that there were once giant camels roaming Canada’s arctic islands?

ADDENDUM: Ideally, everyone would buy an extra copy to send to the president or to their congressmen, but I suspect you are not feeling that generous. You might, however, let your congressmen know of the existence of this little book, and suggest that reading it would benefit their potential reelection.



Probably More Than You Wanted to Know About the Climate Crisis! by The Elephant's Child

A sixteen year old schoolgirl suddenly gained fame because she tried to organize her fellow schoolmates to skip school to protest the climate crisis. Universities gave her honors degrees, and she was allowed by her parents to make the trip to the United States on a sailboat, so she could speak to the United Nations and ask for their cooperation in her crusade. She spoke.

She was highly touted for the Noble Peace Prize, but that went instead to an African gentleman who actually did something serious to advance Peace.

In California, Greta Thunberg met with Leonardo Di Caprio and former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now a gigantic portrait of the pigtailed young girl has been painted on the wall of a downtown San Francisco office building. California is going to spend $2.4 million on Climate change themed art. The state’s Clean Air agency has commissioned the world’s largest installation, to appear in the common areas of the California Air Resources Board’s new headquarters in Riverside, opening in late 2021. Someone or other went on about “climate justice” but I had lost interest at that point.

If you scroll down a bit you can see two videos, one featuring Dr. Richard Lindzen, and another featuring Dr. William Happer. Dr. Happer explains that the world is in the midst of a Carbon Drought. We simply do not have enough carbon in the atmosphere. These two distinguished gentlemen are world-renowned climate scientists, who have spent their whole careers studying climate.

Here’s another interesting fact, the very first thermometer was invented in 1714.

The book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Scottish journalist Charles Mackay was first published in 1841, a study of crowd psychology.  It came in three volumes “National Delusions,” “Peculiar Follies,”and “Philosophical Delusions.” You may be able to find a copy at your public library.

As they say, there is nothing new under the sun. Perhaps it’s something in the water.

 



Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to Ethiopian P.M. Abiy Ahmed by The Elephant's Child

The highly acclaimed child climate leader, Greta Thunberg, 16-year-old  leader of the youth climate movement about skipping school to protest can return home to Sweden, with  the success of addressing the Congress and the United Nations. Her sponsors have suggested that she was denied the Nobel Peace Prize (which is awarded by Norwegians) because Norway is one of the world’s largest oil and gas exporters. Improbable.

The earth has been warming and cooling for millions of years. The current warming is nothing out of the ordinary. There have been far warmer years in the past and far cooler years as well. Please note the long list of climate panics in my previous post. There is no planet emergency, it’s all hype, intended as an attack on capitalism, as the Secretary of the IPCC has admitted.

The Nobel Peace Prize went to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for his substantial efforts in brokering peace between his country and neighboring Eritrea. For decades Ethiopia and Eritrea were one country, Eritrea seceded in 1991. Families separated, unable to reunite, violent conflict at the borders cost more than 80,000 lives in the span of just two years. That would seem to be more of an accomplishment than getting kids to skip school to march for saving the Earth from a non-existent climate threat.
