Why am I not even the least bit surprised that, even amidst a global pandemic of the Chinese coronavirus, climate cultists can’t help but spew the most ignorant and fanatical b.s.? Seriously, can’t they give lying their butts off a break even for a virus epidemic?
A journalist for National Geographic, named Elizabeth Kolbert, wrote an essay for the publication titled: “Why we won’t avoid a climate catastrophe.” Of course, from the get-go, it’s clear that this is outright b.s., because all the models and predictions ever made about a “climate emergency” or “climate catastrophe” in the past have been entirely wrong, as I’ve already written in a previous article.
But let’s go ahead and read her reasoning, shall we?
“By not doing enough to fight global warming, we’re trashing the planet. Innovation may save us, but it will not be pretty.”
Okay, a few things already. First, what does she propose we do to “fight” global warming? I imagine it’s something along the lines of giving the federal government all the power it wants to place crushing regulation after crushing regulation on oil and natural gas companies, if not outright forcing them to shut down, and placing mandates on people as to what sort of vehicle we can drive, what sort of food we can eat, what sort of land we can live on, what sort of building we can create, what sort of entertainment to watch and what sort of media to ingest.
Why does “fighting” global warming always involve us losing our rights and freedoms? Oh, right, because the whole thing is a LEFT-WING SCAM.
Second, why isn’t the accusation of “trashing” the planet directed at China and India, some of the biggest land, air and sea polluters in the world? Why is it that every time we discuss people “trashing” or “killing” the planet, the accusations and the ire and anger are always thrown at capitalist, Western countries and not the biggest polluters on Earth? Why does the teen climate puppet hate Trump, even though his administration has allowed for the U.S. to heavily SLOW its CO2 emissions, and not China, who is a massive contributor to air pollution?
In any case, let’s move on. Kolbert then writes about how, in 1970, the U.S. had its first national “Earth Day”, with millions of people participating. “Participants expressed their concern for the environment in exuberant, often idiosyncratic ways,” wrote Kolbert. “They sang, danced, donned gas masks, and picked up litter. In New York City they dragged dead fish through the streets. In Boston they staged a ‘die-in’ at Logan International Airport. In Philadelphia they signed an oversize, all-species ‘Declaration of Interdependence.’”
Good to know that people did the same hippy crap back then that they do now, only there were actual hippies back then, so it was a bit more understandable (even if it was still stupid). Seriously, the only part of that first “Earth Day” that seemed even relatively useful was people picking up litter. Not sure what dragging dead fish through the streets did for the environment, nor signing an honestly offensive mock of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia.
But regardless, I can’t help but be incredulous at the sheer lack of common sense by these people. Wanna know what two headlines came out around that time? From the New York Times on August of 1969: “Foe Of Pollution Sees Lack Of Time”, a piece that quotes Stanford University biologist Paul Ehlrich: “We must realize that unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years.” He was particularly talking about the “threat” of “overpopulation” and “contamination of the planet by man,” according to the NYT.
In 1970 specifically, an issue of The Boston Globe was titled: “Scientist predicts a new ice age by 21st century.” “Air pollution may obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the next century.”
Kolbert writes that she is old enough to remember the first “Earth Day”. Surely, she also remembers what idiocy the media was spewing even back then and can tell that NONE OF THE DOOMSDAY WARNINGS THEY HAVE ISSUED HAVE COME TRUE!
1970 was FIFTY YEARS AGO EXACTLY, and yet, despite all the nonsense that “scientists” and people in the media were saying at the time, we are not only living, but THRIVING. The Earth is GREENING precisely BECAUSE of the warmer climate. The global temperatures aren’t increasing at dangerous levels, and we are not going to go extinct any time soon (at least due to anthropogenic climate change, since that’s a massive hoax).
And yet, Kolbert writes nonsense like this: “Perhaps people will perfect pollen-carrying drones (They’re already being tested). Perhaps we’ll also figure out ways to deal with rising sea levels and fiercer storms and deeper droughts. Perhaps new, genetically engineered crops will allow us to continue to feed a growing population even as the world warms. Perhaps we’ll find ‘the interconnected web of life’ isn’t essential to human existence after all. To some, this may seem like a happy outcome. To my mind, it’s an even scarier possibility.”
Right, let’s dissect what she is saying here. First, she’s outright lying about the “rising sea levels”, the “fiercer storms” and “deeper droughts.” I’ve already written THREE articles talking about the usual talking points of the climate cult and how those talking points are not supported by science at all, only climate models (which, as recent coronavirus models have shown, are never reliable).
The part about sea level rise (which is happening in some parts of the world, but sea levels are receding in others, so this is not a global threat), I’ve talked about in part II of the three-part series: “27 Points That Highlight The Scientific Inaccuracies And Dishonesty Of The Climate Cult.”
The part about “fiercer storms” and “deeper droughts”, I wrote in part III: “[F]or roughly 50 years, there has been no upward or downward trend in tropical storm and hurricane ACE (Accumulated cyclone energy) values, so no real increased or decreased activity in those 50 years,” as a result of a 2018 climate report noting: “Tropical storm and hurricane… (ACE) values since 1970 have displayed large variations from year to year, but no overall trend towards either lower or higher activity. The same applies for the number of hurricane landfalls in the continental United States, for which the record begins in 1851.”
As far as the “deeper droughts” go, Dr. Pielke Jr. observed: “[D]roughts have, for the most part, become shorter, less frequent, and cover a smaller portion of the U.S. over the last century.” A study from 2015 had also found that megadroughts in the last 2000 years were considerably worse than anything we see today and they lasted far longer. Obviously, no one can sincerely attribute A/Cs, engines and capitalism for those droughts during the times of Jesus Christ Himself.
So her entire premise regarding a “climate catastrophe” hinges on heavily-flawed and scientifically-inaccurate logic. But there is another part of that quote that is very interesting. In her mind, the ability of the human race to innovate itself out of a “climate catastrophe” that would “destroy” plants and the rest of the Earth is WORSE than humanity’s extinction as a result to said “catastrophe.”
You can tell who clearly does not have any respect for human life whatsoever when they say crap like this. To Kolbert, the idea of human extinction to climate change is A PREFERABLE ALTERNATIVE to humanity being innovative enough to find ways to cope with “altering the atmosphere, draining wetlands, emptying the oceans, and clearing the skies of life,” according to her.
You have to be a real sicko to think the entirety of the human race going EXTINCT alongside everything else is BETTER than humanity being able to adapt and innovate and SURVIVE whatever “climate catastrophe” comes our way.
Keep in mind how utterly selfish such people have to be to think this. I bet you Kolbert never thought of herself as being part of the “extinction” she would prefer. She believes she would be exempt from this, either because she would die beforehand or because, as a result of her “being a good girl and being on the right side of history”, she would be spared of the fate of human extinction.
It reminds me of the white people who are calling for the elimination of white people because of their “racist history”. Said white people never include themselves and believe themselves exempt from such ethnic cleansing because they were “on the right side”. It’s elitist bullcrap and utterly narcissistic.
Humanity and the planet aren’t facing a “climate crisis” or a “climate catastrophe”. It’s facing a communist catastrophe if we allow for such insane people to get their way.
“And give no opportunity to the devil.”
