Melting Glacier Is Not Sad After All

Relentless propaganda from the liberal establishment has conditioned the gullible to respond like Pavlov’s dog to any story involving glaciers. For example, CNN reports this:

Researchers have recovered a treasure trove of World War I artifacts from a cave shelter in northern Italy revealed by the melting of a glacier. …

It sits at an altitude of 3,094 meters (10,151 feet), just below the peak of Mount Scorluzzo, and excavation work has been carried out each July and August since 2017, removing around 60 cubic meters of ice from the cave.

The ice they have been excavating to reach the artifacts could not have been there when Austrian soldiers used the cave as a shelter. That’s because it was warmer during WWI than it is now, despite over a century of unprecedented human carbon emissions. This suggests that global warming dogma is a preposterous lie.

Yet a predictable response is for sheep to bleat that it is sad the ice is melting, as if it proved we are all doomed for not abandoning economic freedom and forbidding the use of fossil fuels as leftists demand.

Tony Heller has a laugh at this idiocy, and takes the opportunity to document how Big Government lies about the temperature record to advance its agenda:

China’s Greenhouse Emissions Exceed Entire West’s

If global warming ideology were on the level, those who believe in it would not be focused on defacing the landscape and killing birds with unreliable wind turbines. They would be too busy promoting carbon-free nuclear energy and denouncing the communist Chinese:

China now accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the world’s developed nations combined, according to new research from Rhodium Group.

China’s emissions of six heat-trapping gases, including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, rose to 14.09 billion tons of CO2 equivalent in 2019, edging out the total of Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development members by about 30 million tons, according to the New York-based climate research group.

The OECD comprises 37 countries, including the USA, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and Mexico.

China emits twice as much as the USA, despite having a smaller economy. India emits more than the entire European Union.

Yet the climate deals that reflexively treasonous liberals endorse tighten a garrote on the economies of the USA and Europe while mostly allowing China and India to do as they please. It’s almost as if Biden, Kerry, et al. know they cannot control the weather anyway, but just want to cripple the economy, for reasons they are unlikely to share with us but that probably have to do with the Great Reset.

Parenting Advice From Greta Thunberg

Greta Thunberg, primary oracle of the Church of Enviromoonbattery, can provide wisdom on any topic, including parenting. In the video below, a moonbat requests advice regarding the affective disorder she has induced in her daughter through leftist brainwashing. Saint Greta’s solution: take climate action!

Note that Greta first emphasizes collective action. Imposing oligarchical collectivist tyranny is the objective of the global warming hoax. One reason Greta is top moonbat when it comes to global warming is that she keeps her eyes on the prize.

Scarier even than Greta the teenage totalitarian is that the woman supplicating her for guidance has the power to ruin the lives not only of her children. As a member of Congress, Katie Porter (D-CA) can inflict her gloomy delusions on all of us on a coercive basis.

The Democratic Party has weaponized insanity.

Earth Day Madness

Vladimir Lenin was the world’s first (but unfortunately far from last) genocidal communist dictator. Yesterday would have been his 151st birthday. Leftists have rebranded this holiday as Earth Day. Tony Heller reports on how Biden celebrated, and explains why observed global warming really is largely caused by humans:

Biden Only Leader at Summit to Wear Mask

How come other countries get to have figureheads who don’t make fools of themselves by virtue-signaling with obviously unnecessary Covid masks, while we’re stuck with Biden?

Biden appeared to be the only world leader wearing a mask during a virtual climate summit hosted by the White House.

Leaders who knew better than to wear a silly mask to an online meeting included Putin, Merkel, Erdogan, and EU leaders Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel.

Maybe it wasn’t about Covid. Maybe the inoculated Biden was attempting to suppress his CO2 emissions, to show how seriously he takes the whole climate change farce.

Biden kicked off the proceedings of the two-day summit on Thursday by unveiling a new pledge to cut US emissions in half by 2030. But activists from Extinction Rebellion were unimpressed by his “bull****” plans, dumping cow manure near the White House in protest.

No matter how badly Biden and his anti-American Climate Czar hobble the USA, the militant moonbats whose tune he dances to will sneer at him and demand more.

It would be more sensible if Biden were the only one not wearing a mask at climate summits. That way, the others would not have to hide their derisive smirks as Biden fritters away our economic advantages in lunatic agreements that no one but the USA intends to abide by.

AOC: Unreachably Insane and Driving the Agenda

The Future of the Democratic Party has arrived:

Congressional Democrats, led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), reintroduced the Green New Deal on Tuesday, a sweeping progressive legislative agenda designed to fundamentally transform the U.S. economy to end capitalism while promoting so-called racial, economic, and climate “justice.”

Some think of Biden’s multi-$trillion “infrastructure” blowout as the New Green Deal in disguise. Actually, it only represents a small down payment. Leftists don’t plan to cripple the country. They plan to destroy it. Utopia will be constructed on its ruins, just like in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. You might call the current regime the Khmer Vert.

Markey’s name has been in the news lately because he leads the Democrat charge in the Senate to pack the Supreme Court so that the Constitution will no longer be a hindrance to their plans to remake America as a totally different country.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez personifies the ultraleft vanguard in the House. She squeaks:

“We’re going to transition to a 100% carbon-free economy that is more unionized, more just, more dignified and that guarantees more health care and housing than we’ve ever had before.”

Enjoy your First World standard of living while you can. It won’t be for long. A “carbon-free economy” would entail total economic collapse, followed by mass starvation. It is simply not possible for windmill and solar panel boondoggles to provide more than a tiny fraction of the energy needed to sustain the economy. This is not a bug but a feature. Liberals believe there are too many of us.

Ocasio-Cortez first introduced the Green New Deal in 2019 as a nonbinding resolution in the House that broadly outlined a Democratic legislative agenda to remake the economy. The plan sets a goal of “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions” which will be met after a “10-year national mobilization” that would restructure government social programs, vastly expand government power to centrally plan the economy, and dramatically increase federal taxes and spending to fund it all.

The idea is to convert the USA into a Third-World socialist hellhole in the name of improving the weather, even though the weather is the one thing Big Government won’t control.

Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic initiative must “rectify the injustices of the past” by providing free higher education for all Americans, “affordable, safe, and adequate” housing, free health care, and millions of “union jobs.”

Any difference from communism is a distinction without a difference.

As for the global warming pretext, AOC shrieks:

“It’s not just human-caused, it’s societally-caused. The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice. And it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit…

“We must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change. That the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change…”

The climate doesn’t change because that’s what climate always does. It changes because there is resistance to the radical left agenda. Soon this resistance will be crushed. Then the climate will never fluctuate.

As you can see, AOC is unreachably insane:

Our future is in the hands of crazy people who do not mean us well.

Global Warming Rebranded as “Climate Emergency”

No matter how hard Dr Fauci and the rest of the liberal establishment try to keep Covid hysteria going indefinitely, the pandemic is winding down. It is time to take the lessons learned regarding how much the little people will tolerate without rebelling and apply them to the global warming hoax. Did I say, “global warming”? I meant, “climate change.” No wait, they have changed it again, in hopes of generating panic. Update your Newspeak Dictionary; the nonexistent weather crisis is now to be called “climate emergency.”

The Hill reports:

Scientific American Magazine announced Monday that it will begin using the term “climate emergency” instead of “climate change” when referring to the challenges of global warming, saying its task is to accurately report the news.

Actually, its task is to support the liberal agenda. Calling the fact that the climate continues to fluctuate as it always has and always will is not dispassionate reporting; it is propaganda.

The publication joined a slew of other outlets, including the Columbia Journalism Review and The Guardian, in its statement regarding the change in posture, Yahoo News reported.

You could almost get the impression that someone is coordinating this propaganda campaign from above.

Scientific American senior editor Mark Fischetti obediently yelps that fluctuating climate could “render a significant portion of the Earth uninhabitable” if the carbon emissions that accompany all human activity are not severely limited. This would require government to take control of the economy and radically reduce our standard of living, not to mention our freedom.

Actually, a significant portion of the Earth already is uninhabitable, because it is too cold. Danish farmers settled Greenland because it used to be green up there. Temperatures trending upward would not be all bad. In any case, Big Government may control everything else, but it cannot control the weather.

“Why ‘emergency?’ Because words matter. To preserve a livable planet, humanity must take action immediately,” Fischetti wrote.

The emphasis on manipulating our view of reality by manipulating vocabulary is classic postmodern leftism. This does not work in the long run, because people adapt to changed meanings. Just as “peaceful protester” now means “left-wing rioter,” “climate emergency” will soon mean “pleasant weather.”

“Guided by science, journalists have described the pandemic as an emergency, chronicled its devastating impacts, called out disinformation and told audiences how to protect themselves,” Fischetti wrote. “We need the same commitment to the climate story.”

It could not be clearer that the liberal ruling class intends to impose Covid-style tyranny on a permanent basis in the name of pretending to control the weather. Some of the more sinister leftists like John Kerry call this scheme the “Great Reset.”

Even amid a pandemic, which has paused travel plans and reduced economic activities, scientists found that [the level of harmless CO2 in] the earth’s atmosphere has continued to rise, according to The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Yahoo reported.

That means something even more repressive than the devastating ChiCom virus lockdowns is called for, in order to respond to this perpetual “emergency.”

France to Ban Short Flights

The green agenda means sacrificing your freedom to the sanctimonious posturing of authoritarian bureaucrats who are a little nuts but not so crazy as to think their decrees will have any perceptible effect on the weather. An example from France:

French lawmakers voted late on Saturday to abolish domestic flights on routes than can be covered by train in under two-and-a-half hours, as the government seeks to lower carbon emissions even as the air travel industry reels from the global pandemic.

No worries; as Big Government hammers your kneecaps with one hand, it hands you a crutch paid for by someone else with the other:

The vote came days after the state said it would contribute to a 4 billion euro ($4.76 billion) recapitalisation of Air France, more than doubling its stake in the flagcarrier, to shore up its finances after over a year of COVID-19 travel curbs.

The travel ban bill now goes to the Senate.

Meanwhile, environmentalists are fuming because they want flights banned for routes you can take by train in 4 hours. When they get their way, the next demand will be 6 hours. Rest assured that Air France will continue to receive bailouts from taxpayers even after air travel has been banned altogether.

How long before similar restrictions are imposed in the USA? How long after that before they realize that trains also use energy and start restricting those too? It all depends on whether Democrats can push through HR1 and establish single-party moonbat rule.

Regardless, Climate Czar John Kerry will continue to fly by private jet to collect ecomoonbattery awards.

Arctic Summer Sea Ice Gone for 7 Years?

John Kerry must know what he is talking about on climate issues, or Biden’s handlers would not have made him Climate Czar, putting him in charge of sacrificing our freedom, standard of living, and national interests to the quixotic campaign to improve the allegedly problematic weather. According to Kerry’s sonorous bloviations, which are based on the unassailable holy writ of politically approved Scientists, the Arctic likely started having ice-free summers 7 years ago:

Wait — now The Scientists say Arctic summer sea ice could disappear by 2035. They are learning to push their predictions back a little further so that people won’t laugh as hard when they have to push them back yet again. Or maybe all those hideous, extravagantly subsidized wind turbines are cooling the planet.

Fortunately for doomsday cults, eagerness to believe overcomes the obvious phoniness.

Worst Junk Science in 2,000 Years

The Guardian breathlessly gasps that thanks to resistance to the environmentalist Left’s agenda, the oppressed planet is experiencing the worst drought in 2,000 years. Tony Heller uses their own publication among others to debunk this nonsense:

Extreme weather is a recurrent feature of life on Earth. We can and have adapted to this. We cannot prevent it. Even banning normal cars as Democrats want to do would have no perceptible effect.

As Heller observes, “The people pushing this propaganda are not journalists and they’re not scientists. They are people with an agenda.” That agenda is so malevolent that it cannot be advanced except under a smokescreen of hysteria and lies.

Buttigieg Bike Buy Is Hypocritical Farce

Joe Biden isn’t the only prominent Democrat whose public existence is a staged sham. Pete Buttigieg was promoted from former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana to Secretary of Transportation on the insane basis of his deviant sexual proclivities. He recently showcased his environmental righteousness as well as his regular guy nature by buying a bicycle in a Pizza Hut parking lot. This signals virtue because bicycles protect the endangered weather from harmless CO2. Like the underlying ideology, the purchase was a farce:

“Our neighbor sells used bikes, and last week he met a customer at a Petworth Pizza Hut. He said he was waiting for the person when a couple of black government SUVs pulled up and then a couple more—and then, out pops Pete Buttigieg,” Boston Globe journalist Jazmine Ulloa wrote on Twitter. “He sold a hybrid commuter to the U.S. secretary of transportation that evening. Turned out my neighbor had been talking to Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, all along.”

If he were even half sincere, the public transit advocate Buttigieg might have taken Metrorail. It would have been a straight shot on the Green Line. But unlike regular Americans, he has the option of traveling by SUV convoy, so he takes advantage.

Buttigieg spares no expense when it comes to traveling in comfort:

In 2019, during his failed campaign for president, Buttigieg spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on private jets, more than any other Democratic candidate at the time.

Maybe that’s why Biden’s handlers settled on the Secretary of Transportation position for the administration’s token Guy With a Husband.

Buttigieg makes up for his oversized carbon footprint by raising awareness regarding the environmental sinfulness of those who eat hamburgers or use plastic straws and are therefore “part of the problem” regarding allegedly catastrophic global warming.

Paris Climate Agreement Would Require COVID-19 Lockdown Every 2 Years

The Bond villains comprising the World Economic Forum aren’t the only ones to note the allegedly beneficial reduction of CO2 emissions that has resulted from the economy-crushing ChiCom virus lockdowns.

The Blaze reports:

Climate scientists said that the pandemic lockdown has led to a historic decrease in CO2 emissions, but added that the equivalent of a lockdown every two years would be needed to fulfill the Paris climate agreement.

Reentering that agreement was a priority from the beginning for Biden’s handlers, who aggressively oppose American interests in favor of globalism, leftist ideology, and the Great Reset.

The scientists did not recommend lockdowns every two years, but only that policy changes on the scale of a lockdown were necessary.

That is, crippling the economy to the extreme of the coronavirus lockdowns will be necessary.

The United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement in 2019 under the direction of former President Donald Trump. Critics of the climate agreement have noted that the goals of the pact appear to unfairly target the United States while allowing for other nations to pollute with few regulations.

We are back in it now, because elections have consequences, none of them good when Democrats win.

Fortunately, there is zero chance that the agreement will result in economic suppression sufficient to achieve the arbitrary CO2 goals that the experts are paid to pretend will improve the weather. Countries like China and India will continue to grow their economies at a healthy pace. Less fortunately, the same cannot be said about the USA, so long as it is ruled by people who do not mean it well.

Profiles in Ecohypocrisy: Bill Gates

The truth about social engineer Bill Gates, who sees fit to tell the rest of us about the sacrifices we must make for the sake of the climate (including eating synthetic meat), is that he is an ecohypocrite extraordinaire:

On behalf of Earth’s plant life, let’s thank Gates for all the beneficial CO2 he has been emitting. Unfortunately, the influence of zillionaire moonbats like himself on government policy has been less beneficial.
