Here’s How Trump Is Being Manipulated By Industry and Phony “Climate Science”

If you want to get a “picture” of the disconnect between climate science (facts / reality) and what the Trump Administration “wants” – then read this article:

A look at the climate science sent to Trump

I’ll highlight the important points:

a) The Heartland Institute is a well-known climate denial organization representing big oil and corporate interests. They’re not going to be fair, unbiased or informative to the actual facts (as their history has proven, over and over again).

Trump Approves America’s Energy Addiction – Drilling In Arctic Waters

For someone who claims he’s a “genius” but incessantly lies thousands and thousands of times now, we could reasonably expect the man and his Administration to go on lying about the environment and climate change. Which is of course, what they’ve been doing since he took office.

Now they want to drill for oil in the Arctic waters. What could possibly go wrong? More to the point – does anybody even care anymore? Continuing to feed the gusher demand for oil is alleged to be on the pathway to “energy independence” but in reality, it is a crack-like addiction to hell by planet-destroying companies who’s only real motive is profits.

Trolling America

I’ve been doing some research on the Internet Research Agency (IRA), or Russian troll farm. There’s no doubt at all that Russian trolling of social media, websites, articles and commentary has reached a fever pitch. I’m still trying to discern the overall goal of this activity – but it might just be too obvious, meaning that “division” is what it is all about. Divide Americans (and other countries) and make them disbelieve everything, angry at everyone and distrustful of everyone.

Disconnected From Reality

I almost don’t want to write this article, because every time I do something like this, it never goes well, although it should if people were truly interested in learning. But we are no longer dealing with people who are healthy with their perception and acceptance of reality. Everything to them is “fake news” now if it challenges their preconceived bias (and ignorance). So you can’t actually tell them or share with them anything – nothing gets past their biased filtering system. And if you DO try to shed some “real truth” on a topic or subject – it generally backfires.

Musings

I’ve finally come to realize that the many decades that I have now spent publishing words, stories, research and articles online has been an enormous waste of my time and my life. That is not to say that it hasn’t been informative, entertaining, educational or even appreciated – by me and by readers, which it has been. But it has come at an enormous cost of “life spent” that will never be gotten back.

Future Fisheries Deception

Global fisheries to be, on average, 20 percent less productive in 2300, study finds

This article contains numerous misrepresentations and omissions.

a) Global fisheries are already down over 50% NOW.
b) A temperature rise of 4C will result in a catastrophic collapse of civilization.
c) A 9.6C increase will literally mean human extinction (long before).
d) The resulting food chain collapse @4C or even 9C will mean massive species extinction of all mammals. It is also extremely unlikely that any fish will survive at the higher temperatures.

What Is Wrong With America

Be prepared to get your stupid on. The Atlantic discusses the trends and changes that have occurred in America.

The facts presented might surprise you. I do recommend you find the time to read this article all the way through. There are some real nuggets of observable truth in there. I don’t agree with a few of the statements of facts made, but the rest is spot-on.

Heatwaves Deaths Projected To Increase 5400%, Coastal Floods 3780%, Wildfires 138%, River Floods 54%, Windstorms 20%

You need to dig a little (read) to find this nugget in this article:

Deaths from heatwaves were projected to increase by 5,400 percent, coastal foods by 3,780 percent, wildfires by 138 percent, river floods by 54 percent and windstorms by 20 percent.  European heatwave deaths could skyrocket: climate study

Heatwaves are expected to do the worst damage, jumping from 11 people per million currently to about 700 per million.

Don’t Panic – Deadly Heatwaves Will Strike South Asia… this century

I have been warning about this sort of development for years:

In South Asia, a region of deep poverty where one-fifth of the world’s people live, new research suggests that by the end of this century climate change could lead to summer heat waves with levels of heat and humidity that exceed what humans can survive without protection.

Deadly heat waves could hit South Asia this century: study

Severe Disconnect From Reality

If you want to get your barf on, Scribbler’s article on the Tesla 3 release ought to do it – A Beautiful Machine to Change the World — Model 3 to Transform Global Automobile Markets, Open Pathway For Rapid Energy Transition (I do not link to Scribbler because he censors comments – a despicable practice he endorses to support his false narrative).

Selling The Apocalypse

Salon has an article about doomsday preppers and the hucksters behind this movement. Some may not agree, but the article is dead right. I’ve publicly come out against the false reasons that so many have embraced and the liars in the movement that are behind this. And I was right and still am – not a single ‘event’ that was claimed happened. But the prepper movement has died and hucksters are desperate to find another way to shove their products at you while fleecing your pockets.

Open Thread

A couple of articles found over on Desdemona:

Scientists foresee sharp rise in deadly heat stress as global temperatures climb – “Because the response is nonlinear, for each fraction of a degree the climate warms, the increase in heat stress is ever greater”

UW professor: The information war is real, and we’re losing it

The deceptions and lies being spread by the so-called alternative news sites like Infowars and others is winning the media war. I’ve always said that this sort of thing is not harmless, it is very harmful because of how people react to connedspiracy. This is directly related to the anti-science, anti-facts, anti-evidence claims and fabrications being promoted. In other words, thinking people are surrounded by complete morons in America.

Flirting With Disaster

Oh boy.

The Heartland Institute plans on contacting EVERY science teacher in the country. To do what, might you ask? To encouraging these teachers to consider and teach explanations for global warming that reject humans’ role in a changing climate.

This boils my blood, because the Heartland Institute has a long, long history of despicable practices and deceit. Their lies about the scientific consensus has long been taken to task, and yet they’re still regurgitation this crap and insisting this is taught to every child in the country. They’re siezing the political opportunity generated by the Trumpanzees and Trumpatollah and the miserable failure of the whore media which sold out America long ago.

News Bits

I spent a little time checking out the other news. We actually got some sunshine here (in between bouts of more rain) and I kept popping outside to enjoy it. I can actually see my dead garden now. And reach my greenhouse. I’ll be planting in there very soon. Yeah!

As always, if you really look at the news, there isn’t anything positive to report. There is however, always a lot of bad news, signs of a failing economy, angry citizens and more police-state tactics. More and more of the same, and always worse.

Party Affiliation and “Beliefs”

This is hilarious. It’s a Pew Research poll, that reveals how much Republican and Democrats differ on “science knowledge” and whether or not science is having any impacts on the two different groups:

Picture this: no matter what the science says, or even when these climatic events actually happen – Republicans refuse to change their “beliefs” about climate change.

Hiding Truth

Food Assets shared a link with me a few days back, Mike Adams: Natural News, “everyone’s favorite über-quack #1 anti-science website”. It’s an interesting read, especially to someone like me, who not only has dealt with this clown before, but has also run into some of his ‘converted’. Adams had thought to also get into the food storage business a while back, which we exposed as a dishonestly advertised product. Typical of Adams however, he has long played a shell-game of three card Monte.

More Fun Times Ahead

New studies reveal: Soils could release much more carbon than expected as climate warms

A 30% – 34% increase in carbon release from warming soils was measured in a test plot. This represents a huge increase in carbon release into the atmosphere, if applied around the world it’s an amount equal to 30% annually of all human emissions.

And to add to the joyful fun ahead, Computer models show possible impact to world’s oceans of four major stressors due to climate change

Why is the media under-reporting climate change?

This is another “I told you so” story: Why is the media under-reporting climate change?

“We need the public to be aware that children and even young adults alive today are going to experience the transition to a much more challenging world – unless we make major changes now,” he said.

“Politicians and the private sector respond to the public. So the most important thing is to raise awareness of the risks we’re facing among consumers,” he added.

Keeping Up With the Jones’s

I received a call today from a national radio advertiser (name withheld – you’ll see why) seeking advertising on the Alex Jones show. My verbal reply was very short: “Not interested” and I hung up.  A follow-up email was also received, depicting rates, media kit, etc. I can’t show this here because I don’t want this person to be fired.
