This President does have balls

President Trump has pulled the United States out from this wealth redistribution scam the Paris climate accords.

I totally agree with this decision.

The world is shocked and appalled.

From Truth Revolt

Trump’s decision delighted American conservatives but sent Progressives, who hate it when America chooses its own self-interest over their globalist agenda, into a frenzy. Progressives see Trump’s decision as evidence that the United States is wrong as usual and Trump hates the planet and wants children everywhere to die.Obama himself weighed in, in a statement: “Even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future, I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders called the move “an abdication of American leadership and an international disgrace.” Former Vice President Al Gore, whose carbon footprint alone is larger than South America’s, said it was “a reckless and indefensible action.”

Premier Li Keqiang of China, unapologetically one of the worst-polluting countries on the planet, said that fighting so-called climate change is a “global consensus” and an “international responsibility.”

 

If China, Obama, Sanders, and Gore are against it, then Trump’s move was the right one

Isn’t science a wonderful thing.

When it doesn’t have a political agenda.

They were not expecting this.

U.S., Norwegian, and German scientists report back on the surprising results of an Arctic Ocean research expedition. 
The ocean waters near the surface of the Arctic Ocean absorbed 2,000 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the amount of methane that escaped into the atmosphere from the same waters, according to a study by the USGS Gas Hydrates Project and collaborators in Germany and Norway. The study was conducted near Norway’s Svalbard Islands, above several seafloor methane seeps.

Methane is a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, but the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere where the study was conducted more than offset the potential warming effect of the methane emissions that were observed.

Are you listening boys and girls?

Solar panel Farms: YES! Dairy farms NO!

 

Vermont is at the forefront in saving the planet.

I’ve posted on this subject before.  As readers(?) of this blog will no doubt note.

Vermont needs to do away with dairy farming altogether. Cows fart methane. Methane is even a worse greenhouse gas then carbon dioxide.  Get rid of the cows and fill the pastures with solar panels. It’s a win win situation.

And none other the light bringer Obama himself agrees.

From Heatstreet.

The most striking of Obama’s remarks came when he brought up food consumption. “Our existing food system is a significant contributor to climate change,” Obama said going on to list ways that the challenge of people eating could be slowed or halted. “We need to create a food culture that encourages a demand for healthier more sustainable food,” he lectured, claiming that up to 40% of Americans waste food while millions on the planet starve. Perhaps this is the part of the speech he should have given before sailing around Polynesia on billionaire David Geffen’s yacht with Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey.

The article mainly focuses on meat consumption, but we know better. Dairy cows fart too.

Perhaps it’s time to switch to almond or soy milk.

 

 

 

 

 

The Science is Settled ! Now S.T.F.U. or we may have you ARRESTED!

Times Argus editorial of April 26th.

It appears that there is no point in debating this issue any longer.  One side’s mind is made up. The “science is settle”, (science is never settled). There is the 97% consensus, which was nothing but a total fraud. “But we only have 10 years to save the planet”

Which always seems to be getting pushed back.
San Jose Mercury News (CA) – June 30, 1989 – 3F General News

GRIM FORECAST
 
 
A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos, said Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program. He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human…

Then in 2006 Al Gore said that we only had 10 years to save the planet. Well 10 years have come and gone. and the planet seems to be doing just fine.

Now as of April 2017 we have …guess what,  only 10 years left to save the earth.

Vermont has given itself  another 33 years to become a 90% total renewable energy state.  Obviously were going to have to do better.  This will call for more draconian measures.

Five year plans anyone?  With much of our youth apparently on board they should be more the happy to donate their time and labor on weekends and in the summer utilizing pick and shovel (none of that pollution belching machinery) to prepare former pastures and mountain tops for many more solar panel farms and wind turbines. Of course this would be voluntary, but it be a gauge as to who among our youth are truly committed and who are just along for the ride.

It is time to put the hammer down.  Says “our betters” at the Times Argus.

 

Marches are morale-builders among those looking for ways to make their voices heard. The massive march in Montpelier on Jan. 21, like similar marches all around the country, was useful in showing opponents of Trump that they were not alone and were not powerless.

In the same way, the March for Science underscored the important role science must play in shaping public policy and showed that an appreciation of science as a fundamental component of education is widespread.

Then again, when liberals get together to prove an intellectual point, there is always the danger that they will be talking mainly to and among themselves. Many of the protest signs were clever enough, such as the one that said, “What do we want? Evidence-based science. When do we want it? After peer review!” It is a kind of in-joke among those familiar with the scientific method. But it flirts with the possibility of sending a different message: that you’re a numbskull if you don’t know how funny and smart we are.

At the same time, the nation and world are fighting against what might be seen as a class of professional numbskulls — interest groups and political movements purposely promoting misinformation in order to cloud the science underpinning our knowledge of climate change.

We are long past the time when the press felt compelled to give equal time or space to climate-change deniers. People of all political persuasions know or have an inkling that the planet has entered a new era. Vermonters are keenly attuned to the woods, the wildlife, the weather and know that things are different, and not just in an occasional or random way. Rather, new climate patterns are settling in and the natural world is showing the effects.

Those who are keenly concerned about climate change may be longing for the day when Trump voters and climate-change skeptics more generally will step forward with a heartfelt mea culpa. But the humiliation of one’s opponents should not be the point. Rather, the marches for science, and an emphasis on the importance of education, serve to show how all of us depend on science, fully funded and widely understood.

Perhaps the time has come for the legislature to pass laws threating jail time for people who persist in denying climate change as Bill Nye has proposed,   Or better still, put a pick, shovel and wheelbarrow in their hands and put them to work under selected student  overseers.

But lets cut to the chase, like single payer health care and unlimited immigration this panic over global warming climate change is simply another way to further the march of socialism  Progressivism.  That a “dead” constitution will become living.

It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

We live in dangerous and strange times.

This is what Mr. Carlin had to say.

Fortunately for Mr. Carlin he is dead or else he could have been subject to some “show trials” that could be happing in the near future. Something like this.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan

Sadly it appears that we’re losing the war.

Ridiculous predictions from Earth day 1970

From the blog Ricochet.

  1. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” — Washington University biologist Barry Commoner
  2. “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”New York Times editorial
  3. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich
  4. “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich

Students amass on climate change

“Faith in a holy cause is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves.”
― Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements

“people with a sense of fulfillment think it is a good world and would like to conserve it as it is, while the frustrated favor radical change.”
― Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements

“The quality of ideas seems to play a minor role in mass movement leadership. What counts is the arrogant gesture, the complete disregard of the opinion of others, the singlehanded defiance of the world.”

Were any of these students open to or aware of dissenting opinions on the subject of climate change? Do they have a clue that the climate change movement is 98% politics and 2% science. Do they know of all the corruption of data that has taken place.

Would they even listen?

Vermont has by law pledged to run on 90% renewables by 2050.  This can only be achieved by government coercion, and loss of Freedoms. And it’d not going to make any difference.  But it will achieve the goal of a progressive socialist ideology firmly in control with force to back it up.  They will forever do the thinking for you.
I’m thankful that I will be likely long gone by then.
Ok kids, here is more SCIENCE!  This is what Mr. Mckibben won’t show you.

The Planet is fine says:

The late George Carlin.

 

Well here is that latest. Plants like CO2.

from Breitbart.com

Scientists at Boston University have also reported a worldwide “fertilization” effect from increased carbon emissions, since CO2 is “plant food,” essential for the growth of green plants. Satellite surveillance has shown that a significant portion (between a quarter and half) of the world’s vegetated areas are becoming notably greener.

All of this has raised more questions than it has answered, underscoring the immense difficulty in accurately forecasting climate patterns.
